Robert Bigelow, owner of Bigelow Aerospace, created NIDS, the National Institute for Discovery Science. As part of that research, he purchased Skinwalker Ranch, which became the central focus of a secretive Pentagon-sponsored program. In the first half of the show, he announced the winners of $1.8 Million in prizes as part of his Bigelow Institute for Consciousness Studies call for essays that explore the topic of life-after-death. There were 29 award-winning essays, with author and psychologist Jeffrey Mishlove taking the top prize of $500,000. The goal of the essays, he explained, was to present a convincing argument that the afterlife exists rather than to describe what takes place in that realm.
He plans to compile a set of books featuring the essays that will be freely distributed to hospices, churches, and universities. Bigelow has concluded that our thoughts can exist outside of a biological container and suggested that a lot of what we consider intuition may be influences coming to us from the Other Side. In discussing his research into UFOs and UAP, some information, if it was fully disclosed, would surprise or shock people, he revealed. On the subject of Skinwalker Ranch, he described how an anomaly that lifted off a nightstand was captured in a photo, even though it was invisible to the naked eye. While he seldom saw peculiarities at the Ranch, he noted that his wife witnessed apparitions in their home after he brought back an artifact from the location.
Psychic/medium and author Matt Fraser has conducted thousands of readings, reconnecting friends & family with the spirits of those who are no longer with us. In the latter half, he spoke about his contact with the spirit world, and what it's like on the Other Side. We all have a guardian angel and a spirit guide that walk with us through our lives, he said, as well as other souls that watch over us. For instance, departed loved ones can keep track of us, even, he added, a grandparent that may have died before we were born. "We all start our journey on the Other Side" before our current life, and we may have relationships with loved ones at that juncture, he explained.
He talked about the grieving process and how it can keep people stuck in the past. One way to combat grief is to put together a vision board that focuses on what you want for the future, then departed loved ones can help with tasks to accomplish these goals, he detailed. In his readings, Fraser has found that spirits don't sugarcoat things but instead deliver the unvarnished truth. For example, one woman thought her son was murdered, but his spirit revealed that he actually committed suicide through an overdose. Our beloved pets can also communicate from the Other Side, he noted, and in some cases, people can choose to reincarnate as an animal, such as a blind woman who decided to come back as a seeing-eye dog. During the last hour, he gave readings for callers. For those unable to attend his live events, he now offers online group readings via Zoom.
