In the first half, George Noory was joined by Hollister Rand, a clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient medium who shared what spirits -- especially those of children -- have revealed to her about the afterlife. Rand said she has been shown how much heaven is beyond anything physical beings with their finite minds can imagine. Those on the other side describe a limitless afterlife filled with bright colors, golden buildings that soar into the sky, and gardens that never need tending, Rand explained. One child in spirit disclosed that heaven is more of a 'state of mind' than an actual place, she added.
"The good news is you don't need a GPS to find your way to heaven," Rand continued, pointing out that friends and loved ones come to guide the newly departed. Numerous spirits have also reported flying with angels after they passed, she said. Those who do not accept death or refuse to move forward enter a kind of limbo, she remarked, noting that there is still an opportunity for change and growth for them, even on the other side. Rand talked about how she and other mediums sometimes intercede on behalf of such spirits, helping them to cross over.
In almost all cases, the spirits that have come to Rand do not express any regrets for having passed on to eternity. They got what they needed from their incarnations, no matter how short the duration, she said. According to Rand, most come with love and view themselves as alive and capable of reconnecting in relationships (albeit in a different way) with the people they've left behind. Spirits also remain involved in guiding and inspiring those on the earth plane, she added. Rand expressed that knowing such things has allowed her to live a life without fear.
The latter half of the program featured Open Lines. A few callers phoned in to talk about Larry Waters, the man who in 1982 attached 45 helium-filled weather balloons to an ordinary lawn chair and rose to an altitude of more than 15,000 feet. Relating to the Water's account, Geena in Loveland, Colorado, told George about something strange her father saw in the sky every night on his way home from work. According to Geena, her dad reported seeing a shiny dark metallic craft hovering in the same spot over the mountains for a period of six months. Each time he would pull over to get a better look at it, the object would disappear, she said.
James, a production assistant from Pasadena, California, reported using a ghost tracker iPhone app in an abandoned town where he was shooting. The app recorded a mysterious message, "windows... windows... roll up... leave," before a glass shattered on one of the buildings, he revealed. Jim in Glen Rose, Texas, said he was recently alerted of inclement weather by his radio and stepped outside to find a tornado barreling down the street toward his house. Jim said the cyclone was spinning roughly 100 feet off the ground, approached his yard, popped back up, and touched down several miles away, sparing his home and family. Jim called his extreme weather encounter a religious experience.
Fox 8 News in Cleveland has posted video of something mysterious over Lake Erie. The footage, shot by UFO enthusiast Michael Lee Hill, shows a series of flashing colored lights that appear to remain still in the sky. Hill claims to have witnessed these strange lights for years, noting that "every year they've come in closer and closer." More info at fox8.com.
