WEIRD WIRED WORLD OF UFOLOGY

by Timothy – “Mr UFO” – Beckley

Let me tell you “radio” sure as hell has changed from when I was a kid. A lot of stations went off the air at sunset and your choice of music or talk was severely limited. You couldn’t choose from rap, or Reggie and classic rock was decades down the road, as Led Zeppelin wasn’t around to take you to Heaven yet and Ozzy’s bat still had its head intact. You had to settle pretty much for the Make Believe Ballroom or some Top 40 station playing Frankie Valli hits. Talk was a bit better. There was more local programing than today.

Frank Edwards was the first commentator to add UFO reports to his radio lineup.

Every major market had its own “king of the airwaves.” The first  show, circa 1950,  I know of that relied heavily on UFOs was  hosted by a reputable newsman Frank Edwards who had a nightly program on the Mutual Radio Network sponsored by the American Federation of Labor. Edwards, who later wrote Flying Saucers Serious Business (probably the best selling UFO book of all time) had read an article in True magazine by Major Donald E. Keyhoe and was so impressed that, he started to pepper his broadcast with UFO news which turned out to be exceedingly popular with the public. This may be one of the few active links  to an Edward’s presentation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJtZtFA0erw

Then, long before Art Bell,  came the granddaddy  of  paranormal/UFO broadcasting. Long John Nebel was  a lanky 6 foot 4 pitchman who worked the Jersey Shore auction circuit and  was ultimately “discovered” by a sales  manager from WOR, a 50,000 watt powerhouse station that could be heard across 30 states. Nebel  broadcast seven nights a week from midnight till 5, from a studio just  off Time Square.

Long John's nightly Pary Line interviewed many of the early UFO contactees like George Adamski.

Long John’s nightly Pary Line interviewed many of the early UFO contactees like George Adamski.

Nebel was the first commentator to utilize the telephone in order to take calls from  listeners, though initially only John’s portion of the conversation could be heard over the airwaves. He simply repeated the questions. Later, a seven second delay was created  and low and behold history was made as the listener calling into the show in the dead of night could be heard from their homes. The two way conversation was born!

At times Long John’s program was  a true Three Ring UFOlogical Circus as the likes of Jackie Gleason – an immense UFO buff ( his personal library on UFOs is housed in the University of Miami) but a skeptic as far as the early flying saucer contactees were concerned – battled it out with the likes of  George Adamski, George Van Tassell, Orfeo Anguelucci and others who claimed to have met long haired Venusians and professed to have  traveled  to other planets. It was  a UFO era unto itself and one that is hard to dismiss even if only for nostalgic reasons.  Nebel had a huge listener base that ran from the mid 1950′s till his passing from cancer in April 1978.

shaver

Richard Shaver said he went to the cavern world inhabited by the mutant Dero.

Here LJ and panel members speaks with Ray Palmer UFO publishing pioneer and co founder of Fate magazine and Richard Shaver a “science fiction” writer who maintained that there was a race of mutant  cave dwellers who were abducting  humans for sadistic purposes and  using them as slaves. Shaver also maintained that these menacing cavern dwellers, the Dero, were in contact with vast fleets of space ships coming to earth to ransack our planet of gold and other minerals. Shaver’s paranoid ravings caused a great deal of controversy and even Life magazine devoted part of an issue to the topic of the inner earth. Many UFO buffs even today accept Shaver’s contention that flying saucers have set up shop either inside the planet, or at least in underground bases occupied by aliens. .You are free to  reminisce at this link with this interview recorded in 1956 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTGYlTXpcpc

Though the main thrust of this column will be the current state of  UFO podcasting and trending YouTube videos,  very month I will link  to at least one older program that might be lurking around in a hidden, dusty,  archive somewhere. Why should today’s contemporary  UFO researcher miss out on the opportunity to hop aboard the UFO time machine and go back to yonder days,  when the pickings  of UFO shows on the airwaves might well have been equally as ripe as today’s choices.

No one listens to more UFO oriented programing than I do. My lap top is always buzzing away with an archived show in the day time while I work on the latest Conspiracy Journal,  and when I retire to my loft bed at night my Kindle usually is tuned in to  either  Clyde Lewis’ Ground Zero http://www.groundzeromedia.org/listen-to-ground-zero/ for the latest conspiracies,  and later to Coast to Coast AM if they have on a guest speakCoasting about  UFOs or the equally bizarre. I listen intently to KHVH-AM which streams the show out of Honolulu. I like this station  because C2C is repeated twice and I can listen till about 9 AM the next morning (Eastern) till the regular day time program starts up (boo!). Normally, I fall asleep and wake up several times to hear choice tidbits from George Noory or George Knapp.

I have been a regular guest on probably over a thousand shows since around 1964. I have even produced a couple of paranormal programs. I always have a great new guest  up my interdimensional sleeve for some supportive UFO host. The late Kevin Smith really was a busy man. Most UFO podcasts are broadcast once a week. Kevin who died of a heart attack recently produced a nightly program.. Got to appreciate how much work that involves. I wish his show was archived out there in the galaxy somewhere.  I did find an interview with Kevin at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/prophecykeepers/2013/10/22/the-late-kevin-smith-cherokee-talk-show-host-ufo-warrior

Recently, I invited a gentleman who is an historian by profession, but who just happens to have spent the last 6 years investigating a remarkable series of UFO “crash” landings outside Kingman, AZ that took place in 1953. This is one of those early Roswell-like incidents which has largely been ignored and thought to have been a hoax. Harry Drew says it is anything but, and has provided some incredible documentation that this incident is not a fabrication. He says there are over a dozen locals who witnessed the events,   and tells of the remarkable way in which the military carted away the objects, and an incident in which several survivoring Ultra-terrestrials where being kept in protective custody in the sheriff’s highly secure underground bunker only to vanish with the heavy door securely locked.  This is a really titillating podcast and you can beam in on it now at www.theouteredgeradio.com

* * * * *

Closing out our first edition of the Weird, Wired, World of UFOlogy I can’t help but highly recommend The Outer Edge hosted by Tim R. Swartz and Michael Mott every Sunday at 9 PM West Coast time and midnight Eastern. In the past year or so, they have managed to interview many credible  researchers who have not been over exposed like Tessa Dick the wife (number five) of the late, great, Sci Fi writer Philip K. Dick (Blade Runner, Total Recall, etc)  who had some really peculiar – damn right oddball – encounters with a strange woman who appeared at his door and beamed a pink ray at him which infused his mind with incredible information, proving, he says the existence of a real Matrix.

Well that’s it for now. If you host a pod castor a You Tube channel let me hear from you by sending me a link and telling me a little about your show. Mrufo8@hotmail.com is the place to send it with PODCAST in the subject line for easy identification.

Contact in the Desert recap

Alien.317The second Contact in the Desert event at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center was held this last weekend. Attendance grew to well over a thousand people in spite of the sweltering heat. When asked about possible date changes the event organizer, Paul Andrews, stated that the reason Perseid Meteor showers are most visible then. I’m not quite sure what that has to do with ‘contact’ but suffice it to say the dates will probably remain the same for next year.

Speakers presented on a varied of topics and you can research that on the Contact website.Since I know most of the presenters and am very familiar with their work, I spent most of my time among the participants to get a feel for the ‘common man’s’ observations and reflections on the subject at hand. From the queries I made, there is a vast array of perspectives and revelations (so to speak) being promoted, but not much is being done to query the crowd or seek out the experiences of real contactees. There is a lot of talk about consciousness, but no opportunities ti explore aside from the limited number of devices provided by a few of the vendors.

There was a surprise visit by one of the wayshowers of the consciousness movement, IMG_0703Barbara Marx-Hubbard, who happened to walk in and sit a few feet away, just before a small cadre of folks gathered around her for a short discussion. it was obvious that she was unfamiliar with advanced non-human intelligence, but she spoke of the need for a collective gathering around the possibility of open communication. Later in another short chat she mentioned spoke of a woman who had a large following in Canada and claimed to be a mouthpiece for the universal feminine principle many, many years ago and she thought it was a cult. The individual was part of a mass abduction in 1973.

The point regarding the latter is that expanded or cosmic consciousness can present itself through a variety of forms and sources, from crop circles to ‘channels’ that perform specific tasks for communicating information humans may not quite understand yet. I found it interesting the Ms. Hubbard could not see the significance of her own cult, but it was not my job to propose that view. Regardless, the worlds are bridging and the fact that she was at this event shows that walls are coming down and people are beginning to recognize the significance of non-human interactions. Many of the attendees I spoke with reflected the same and were frustrated that more focus is not on the communications that have been taking place.

alienanimation19In all fairness the groups that were assembled for the purpose of sharing experiences were littered with stories that would have taken a master coagulator to find the common thread in them. Most of them were related from a very human-centered and fear-based perspective. The obvious reflection was we fear what we do not understand and the interpretation of experiences is through a very linear lens. More experienced contactees argue the point that no fear is necessary and our view through that lens is extremely skewed and simply incorrect. The simple notion that everyone I spoke to agreed upon was that we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form becoming aware of the fact.

The expansion of that simple notion spans myriad places, spaces and realms of consciousness across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The scientific discoveries that back up the notion of multiple dimensions and attending bodies (part of our multidimensional self) are beginning to bleed over from astrophysics and quantum physics. Questions and theories viewed through linear lenses seem to skew the view intended by the above-human intelligence. There seems to be a general consensus, though, that non-linear and non-local experience is necessary in order to have a better view of the big picture, incapable of being seen let alone understood by those who have not entered the non-linear and/or non-local worlds of consciousness. We need ways to create opportunities, safely, for folks to have experiences. We also need to have better conversations about them

In an effort to continue the growth of UfologyPRSS Blog I reached out to several noted authorities and old friends and invited them to write for us. Many agreed to provide material and to review existing material, written and video, that is on the Web at time. We’ve assembled a huge variety of feeds from around the world and many seem to have conflicting stories or present skewed views through very human lenses. We hope these new additions will help to develop better discernment tools for the material. Not everyone has a pure agenda for getting at the truth and whenever profits are involved you can be sure there will be controversy and withholding of truth. Our job is to share what we find.

In the future we look for open conversations that focus on the development of situational protocols that include tools to discern how the experiencer is interpreting their experience in order to get a more objective and clear perspective or the purpose. Apparently information from trusted sources indicates that human ‘spiritual’ awareness still isn’t congruent with cosmic consciousness (soul) in that we think we have a choice in our experiential timeline. Abductees complain about being taken against their will but give no credence to the possibility that there is another timeline they have no knowledge of, one they agree to participate in before incarnating here on Earth.

First Contact Imminent

It was February 13, 2001 sometime around midnight in Phoenix, Arizona. I’d just gotten horizontal after an evening of chatting with folks on SpiritWeb about the Ashtar Command and what the ‘contactee’ experience was like for me. It had been going on for decades, since childhood, with no sense of malevolence whatsoever.

I found that many were still caught up in mixed emotions and concern for ‘negative’ ETs that seemed to get in the way of their development. Fear is just not a factor in the thin worlds. It simply does not exist. That may sound very confusing to those with ‘abduction’ experiences that have left an indelible mark. I have an entire book about that, Alien Agendas and Anal Probes. But I digress…

Lying there in quiet contemplation, all of a sudden I felt the transition between worlds that has become so familiar over the years. It’s like being freed from one world to enter another accompanied by a definite shift in the sensation of vibration. I’m sure its subtle, but inside it feels dramatic. There is a sound that is beyond hearing that accompanies the shift. It feels like a wind at my back, catapulting my relation-ship beyond the ocean of emotion.

This one was a bit different, though. My focus seemed to expand and contract simultaneously. I was fully conscious and it felt really strange. The practice of ‘seeing’ is much like scrying with a mirror or looking at an image that has a 3-D effect, gazing without looking intentionally. Years later in DMT – The Spirit Molecule I read accounts of folks who tried to explain their experience and they seemed to draw upon the same kind of explanations for their non-linear experiences.

I found myself in front of a large group of folks that looked they came from across the galaxy; so many varieties I was taken by surprise for a moment, but I have to say it felt quite natural and normal. Then my consciousness shifted again, into the ‘performance mode’ where I was able to observe yet another part of me was in charge. I was performing as a facilitator for the meeting, feeling like I was in complete charge.

As my focus developed and dissipated, I could tell I was on board a ship of substantial size. Sounds like a paradox, huh? Developed and dissipated… but that is how it seemed. I was in a large meeting room that reminded me of a lecture hall from college, with several hundred in the audience. This audience was not your standard student body though; far from it. I had simultaneous questions as I was ‘performing’ the emcee function.

There were dozens of different races represented in the group, too many to recall them all, but there was a sense of unity amongst them that felt familiar for some reason. I felt confident in the plethora of participants and the myriads of systems they represented, all members of the Galactic Federation. I understood the latter without question. Although there was no obvious announcement of their affiliation, the sense of unity was profound and complete.

The exact details are too cumbersome to elucidate here now, but the focus of the meeting was to go over the agreed upon processes, protocols, rules and responsibilities of ‘First Contact’ on Earth. It was apparent the process had been going on for some time; no exact date for establishing a ‘time and place’ event. Truth be known, it started millennia ago while humans were just beginning to evolve on their own.

It was time to begin the strategic actions to bring consciousness among humanity to a new level. They had advanced to a point of priority for planetary survival. It would become necessary for many kinds of open contact to occur. Humans were still too projective with the energy and they had not learned how to listen, so many methods and options were to be discussed. The 2012 Winter Solstice was one of the points of order under discussion, when the awareness of humans would reach a ‘tipping point’ in the process.

That may seem like a simple concept, listening, but the depth of the listening is what enables the interdimensional travel beyond the linear frameworks that humans have developed. You might recall a line in one of the favorite books among humankind stating, ‘for those who have the ears to hear and the eyes to see.’ When consciousness shifts, so does one’s ability to become aware and perceive.

One of the ways this was to be accomplished was the voluntary incarnation of some of the members of the Federation, developing as normal humans within the population yet being able to accelerate the advancement of consciousness along with the natural development of the human system. I knew that to be true for myself, but I longed for others like me to join the party. Most of the time the ‘incarnates’ are unaware of their true identity for many years, following their passion and purpose like an internal road map.

WheelCoCreationOnly after a decade of holding this within and, although I’ve been quite outspoken about my experiences, this one has not had the ears to hear until now. I have witnessed the growth of listening and as we approached the tipping point, (Winter Solstice of 2012) where consciousness has been expanding globally to understand the shift.

The next 25 years are focused on implementing the garnered awareness into existing systems, across the spectrum. The Co-Creators wheel that Thrive and The Shift Network use is an example.

Now since Jose Arguelles is gone, it seems time to share and take my chances. He wrote a wonderful reflection in an event journal I kept during the Prophets Conference in Phoenix back in 1997, perhaps the beginning of ‘Zen of the Clean Wave Form’ he referenced in his work later. We had many conversations about the transition of the ages and the wisdom necessary to negotiate the change into the New Time.

I’ve had a few conversations with others over the years, but their self-importance and conspiratorial positions simply do not support the Galactic Federation’s agenda as I know it. It is a New Time where consciousness is key and collaboration imperative. Pointing fingers and sharing disturbing references, true or not, only serves to maintain separative notions. In my humble opinion, that kind of behavior is subversive and treasonous to the spirit of Truth.

Another example of Galactic Federation workers’ results, no doubt some aware of their roles in the development, is the ISO 26000 Social Responsibility Standards. This is an example of how representatives from over 90 countries came together with a single goal in mind and created a document that can be used for moving humanity forward expeditiously. However, it is an ‘intentional’ document, one that employees of major corporations can use to encourage their leadership to be better planetary citizens. It is practical and pragmatic.

Stay tuned for more. Look for me at the Contact in the Desert event coming up in August. I won’t be on the schedule, but I will be there. Here’s a review of last year’s event for me. A point of perspection dances in the balance of the seer’s vision. One does not need to be an atheist or religious to find meaning for oneself in life and meaning for life in oneself. I share much more in the book Zendor the Contrarian.

Exopolitics Magazine

exopolitics-magazine-issue-1-cover-may-2014-320wIntroducing Exopolitics magazine, a magazine dedicated to the progression of Ufology and the study of UFOs.

Within its pages you will find articles on some of the topics and themes that will come under the lens at the Annual British Exopolitics Expo and the Extraterrestrial Communication Conference in the summer of 2014.

The term “Exopolitics”, meaning the politics of our interactions with others not of this planet, brings with it the challenge of framing it within what is now nearly seven decades of deceit.

This challenge means that the data presented at the Exopolitics Expo is not always necessarily “exopolitical”, nor is it necessarily old-school “ufological”. It is presented however to give a broader and clearer cognisance of our own place in this world.

This is itself a necessary prerequisite for understanding – or rather – comprehending of our interactions or influence with any “others”, terrestrial or otherwise.

That “others” exist is evidenced by meticulous work of researchers stretching over the last seven decades. This evidence indeed goes back far into recorded history and, no doubt, beyond.

What we are experiencing collectively may not be new, throughout history the ruling paradigm of the time – enforced for political or theological purposes – has always come to be challenged and undermined, not necessarily by the beliefs and practices of the outsiders, but by the very nature of reality itself.

If we are in similar times, albeit placed into our particular civilizations circumstances, then we should not be too surprised whe the end result of deception is ultimately revelation.

UFO disclosure is often expressed in terms of the authority that a body has to disclose it. While politics describes the politics of instruments and institutions of our society – rarely, if ever, do they relate to the intent of being of the individual. Whatever the true nature of the UFO phenomenon is, we, as sentient and sovereign human beings, are all the authority that UFO disclosure needs.

Therefore, in that sense, this is disclosure.

The Truth is Out There…

ChangedPrioritiesXSmallEye to eye contact is a big thing for me. When I’m speaking to someone, especially at this level, I open up and allow my full attention and awareness to become present. As much as I try to eliminate expectations, I have them regarding reciprocal participation in conversation, especially among so-called pundits.

I’ve been told that my gaze can be quite intimidating and I know from experience if someone is not clear – authentic, honest and open – they tend to see me as an invader. Over the years I came to realize what the expression ‘eyes of fire’ truly meant. Still, I adhere to the notion that the eyes are the gateway to the soul and one can see deeply if/when knows how to look.

When you have nothing to hide and you know that Source flows through you, it tends to burn right through the bullshit that others tend to carry. It took me years to get to that place, but it doesn’t mean I know everything. Most of the time I know nothing, I’m just open. There is a lot of disinformation and misdirection in Ufology, and for many reasons. You can speculate on those reasons, but I won’t waste words here now.

I don’t intend to be invasive, although I have to admit that it could seem so. I know I can get pretty intense when I’m looking for the nature of truth within another. Whether they are able to reveal it or not is another story. I believe we all have the capability of this ‘view’ but very rarely do we choose to be so bold. Like Goethe says, ‘boldness has genius, power and magic in it.’

At any rate, in noticing whether eye contact is consistent or even made is a big indicator for truth telling. When we purposely lower the head to look into his eyes of another it makes us wonder what’s going on inside the other. Of course there are many reasons one may not be present in the conversation and we often don’t take the time to literally ask someone to be present when it is obvious they are not. That tends to seem confrontational.

I had met someone who many hold in high regard that channels and writes books and monthly updates about the Galactic Federation’s activity. I’d asked to meet this gentleman some years before and the opportunity finally arrived. It was so well-orchestrated that he came to a friend’s bookstore to speak. She let me know he was coming so that I could arrive early and have time for a chat. It’s great to have wonderful friends.

During our conversation he stared at my chest mostly and as much as I tried not to, it felt like he was avoiding my gaze on purpose, possibly because he did not want me to ‘see’ something he was trying to hide. I kept hoping he would at least look me in the eyes for lingering moment, but all I got was occasional glimpses. I knew he had advanced degrees, one of them in communication, so he was aware of conversational protocols. Maybe he thought I wasn’t, but I chose not to speak up about my concerns.

I have to say I did not specifically ask him why, so at best I’m speculating as to the reason he could or would not look me in the eyes. However, it led me to believe there was something out of integrity within him that he did not want me to see. I’m concerned that folks like this often garner a following who want to believe everything and hinge on their every word, whether out of their mouth or in writing. I cringe at the lack of discernment I see at times.

So it is within the Ufology movement now, there are many who have been dragging people along for years who may or may not hold their truths to be self-evident but they sure want to make people believe so. I’m sure it seems like I may be of that ilk at times. However, truth will prove itself as long as we learn how to test it appropriately. In the realms of Ufology there are plenty of experiencers who have little proof of their experiences; non-linear and non-local events are hard to prove without corroboration and/or witnesses who validate them.

We have a hard enough time with physical reality. Entering Ufology is a trip down a rabbit hole that offers potential bridges between inner and outer worlds, other dimensions of time and space as well as on- and off-planet relationships with a plethora of races and technology. Some get caught up in the fear of invasion. Others propose there is no intent of invasion, only the request to learn how to get along so they can visit openly. Still others contend there is a sinister plan that engages shadow governments and alien technology.

Bottom line is the folks need a system for discernment, for understanding of how to interpret these notions for themselves. The truth is often far different than early perceptions with little facts to back up the conjecture. Humans tend to look for enemies around every corner as we’ve been inducted into a kind of militaristic politic of self-protective notions that may or may not serve the greater good. Should we question authority? Absolutely! We need to learn the best questions to do so, revealing the truth for all in individuated fashion.

Individuated fashion? We all perceive things differently based on our history, intelligence and world view. Can this all change in a moment’s notice? Sure, but we rarely do. What I’m suggesting is that there needs to be a kind of adhocracy that encourages considerate yet direct conversations with those who seek to share information. Pertinent and poignant questions can be developed, much like the early abduction/contact or starseed questionnaires.  I think it’s time for the field to evolve. Don’t you?

The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but having new eyes. The Ashtar Command and Galactic Federation promote universal law and understanding of reality as ONE fabric with many threads, like our  indigenous planetary residents. There are other indigenous residents that have the ability to interact with plants without harming anyet-disc-binary of the cell structure. The increase of communication reflects yet another attempt to unify humanity toward harmony with a greater consciousness.

The binary disc decoded: “Beware of the bearer’s of gifts and the broken promises. Much pain but still time. Believe there is good out there. We oppose the deceivers. The conduit is closing.”

UFO Abductee, Contactee or something else?

Alien.317UFO Abductee, Contactee or something else?

There are many conversations and investigations about UFOs. If you look around the field the vast majority of the attention is on physical phenomena, usually sightings and their investigations. Most of the books are written about rehashes of events. There have been those claiming new discoveries about UFOs or recounting hypnotherapy sessions from supposed abductees and contactees. None of it really has a solid feel to it, just like the interdimensional visitors.

There are some other stories beginning to surface, though, that push the limits of credibility because they are about a much richer engagement. Over the past decades there have been hints of a broader field of interaction. There are claims of humans who find themselves part of a greater experience they find difficult, if not impossible, to explain or understand. Still, the consistency of these claims and similarities of stories tend to indicate that something is indeed surfacing, a gathering of souls with consciousness and intelligence that behavioral scientists and psychologists find fascinating.

Before we explore this any further, we ask that you suspend your belief system for a moment and try to fathom a reality few consider, let alone experience. There have been some authors and researchers who have explored the deeper implications of contactees and experiencers. Some have reported on accounts revealed from hypnosis, like Barbara Lamb, Delores Cannon and Yvonne Smith. Others have taken a more straight forward interview style like Dr. Scott Mandelker, Dr. Steven Greer and Kerry Cassidy / Bill Ryan in previous years. They each have their particular focus and style, but none really look at the depths.

Imagine you are a young person who, for whatever reason, has been adopted early and may or may not be aware of the fact. There is something that stirs within you that just feels different; a sense of being aware of a much greater reality but you are unable to articulate those feelings as a youth. Your dreams are full of other worldly experiences and occasionally there are things that happen around you that, if you called attention to them, would only cause others to discount your observation or deny it even happened.

As you get a little older, you find yourself having ‘dreams’ of seeing yourself leaving your house through a window, a wall or even out the door and rising up into the air into a brightly lit cloud. In the late 50s and early 60s the orange cigar-shaped clouds were the most common. You enter that cloud and next thing you know you are waking up in bed feeling invigorated and you cannot wait to go back. You have no memory of being inside the cloud, but you know it was fun and completely safe from harm. You want to share the experience, but something tells you it wouldn’t be wise. After all, it is just a sensation other than the memory of watching yourself in the process of getting to the cloud.

After a few years the experiences seem to dwindle and stop, but the memory haunts you because there is ‘something’ that happened. You may even notice that your way of thinking is much different than the others your age, being more focused on curious notions about life or why people do what they do. You get along with just about everyone, but there is something that keeps you feeling separate and unable to really connect with others for some reason. It isn’t a bit deal, but you feel like you are missing something as you continue to look for deeper connections in life and relationships.

When you reach the age of accountability in your late teens you begin to question life even more, possibly wondering what your purpose or mission in life may be and your curiosity continues to grow in strength until you almost become obsessive about it. You might even break down and hit your knees, since you’ve been taught that prayer is a way to seek answers beyond human. You want to know what truth is and the desire is so strong you feel like its worth giving up your life in order to find it. After all, that is what most religions teach.

So one day or night you have one of the most profound experiences of your life. There has been a voice that you’ve conversed with your entire life so far and didn’t realize it. This voice all of a sudden makes you aware of its presence, calling you by name and asking if you are willing to die for what you belief in. In a frantic grasp for a solid belief, you realize that a bigger-than-life belief is the only thing that will fit this call… cosmic consciousness or something similar is all you can think of and, in so doing, answer in the affirmative.

Before you know it you are surrounded by White Light, but then quickly move on to a sphere of pin points of light that you recognize as points of consciousness. You don’t know why you recognize them as such, but it just resonates with your very soul. Then you find out these are others just like you and somehow you are to work together to achieve a transformation of your world over time, but in your lifetime. The next thing you know you are back in your body taking a gulp of air you didn’t know you needed and everything becomes real in that instant.

Many years later you begin having interactions with other beings not of this world, seemingly, because they do not look human. There is a certain resonance with them, though, and they feel like what you were seeking so many years ago, a deeper sense of family. You still don’t know how to explain it and you know you’d be insane for sharing these experiences with others because you’ve witnessed how ‘different’ people have been treated by your nuclear family and friends. You are conflicted with your sense of familiarity with these ‘others’ and the notion that you might be mentally unstable, chemically imbalanced or just plain nuts.

You have been able to hold a job and work in the daily travails of earning a living or even raising a family, so the the question of sanity gradually dissipates. Still, there is no one to talk with about what is going on inside with some bleed-over outside of you at times. So you start asking questions internally and find that your life begins to change as a result. Others like you begin to show up, asking similar questions and sharing stories quietly so that the ‘public ear’ doesn’t pick up on your obviously questionable notions.

The notions of possibility begin to emerge; that you may indeed be part of something bigger and/or may have your roots in another civilization from across the universe. It seems outlandish and unpopular, yet there is a sense within you that it is indeed possible. You know that if you talk about it that others will distance themselves from you with no remorse. There is something important about it, though, and try as you might there is no one to talk to about it. You know that humans can be barbaric and downright inhumane to their own kind, so you keep your mouth shut and just hope that someday a story emerges that opens the door to sharing your real feelings and thoughts.

Now that you’ve read the above and hopefully allowed your own beliefs and/or suspicions to be set aside for the moment, just give it a little thought. For the sake of this article and the reflection from the field of experiencers, let’s assume this is a reality for some, possibly many. Let’s ask a few intelligent questions about the potential reality:

  • If this happened to you, what would you do?
  • If this happened to a friend or loved one and you found out, how would you respond?
  • If you met someone that had a credible background, performed well professionally and claimed the potential of being connected to an off-planet civilization – what would you think?

Maybe this will begin some conversation. Feel free to reach out offline, too.

2014 IUFOC Recap

iufocThe 33rd International UFO Congress was February 12 – 16. It’s the largest conference of its kind in the world. The International UFO Congress is an organization in Arizona dedicated to the dissemination of information related to many areas in Ufology. It was established in 1991 and hosts an annual conference. While previously held in Laughlin, Nevada, the conference moved to the Phoenix, Arizona area in 2011.

The IUFOC features presentations given by authors, researchers, experts, enthusiasts, and those who have witnessed paranormal or anomalous phenomena from all over the world. It also provides a forum to discuss the experiences and findings. This week long event usually has over thirty speakers, a film festival, vendors, and experiencer sessions. Topics generally covered are alien abduction, UFO sightings, UFO crashes, crop circles, paranormal experiences, government conspiracy and much more.

This is probably the premier UFO-focused event in the world. John Rao and crew really do it up right. We’ve reported on the Open Minds team earlier. The quality of the venue, the quality of the mini-events within the IUFOC, like the EBE Awards, the Mixer and Dinner and the Sky Watch are all top notch. If you ever get the opportunity to attend, it will be one of the best experiences you’ll have of meeting folks that come from all over the world who are interested in or have experiences with UFOs.

We did manage to have conversations with many of the speakers and vendors during the event. We even got a few on video endorsing UfologyPRSS, including Ben Hansen, Dr. Lynne Kitei and Kim Carlsberg. We are truly appreciative of their support. Click on the video below for all the endorsements. We know it will help us continue to grow. We also want to express our appreciation for the folks at Open Minds and their exquisite production of the International UFO Congress.

The nature of the UFO phenomena covers a plethora of possibilities. There is as much consideration for conspiracy as there is for objectivism, regardless of Ayn’s introduction. Does our government really have involvement with other worlds? Some say yes and some say no, but we really do not know for sure. What would it matter, anyway?  Is there something that our government could offer the public as some kind of gesture in disclosure? Perhaps the revelation of the off-planet visitors is simply that we need to learn to get along. That alone is more challenging now than any engagements with extraterrestrials.

There were some new folks speaking at the IUFOC this year including Kawaunee Lapseritis, speaking about psychic Sasquatches; Mike Clelland, speaking on Owls and synchronicity regarding contact experiences; and David Marlen, who spoke on the triangular-shaped craft that frequents our skies. Some of the old favorites were there as well, including Steven Bassett, Patty Greer, Rob Simone and Dr. John Alexander. The former hopes for government disclosure, the latter doesn’t think the government knows much at all.

One of the highlights of the festivities was Ben Hansen’s hosting of the Sky Watch on Friday evening. Ben has been a popular figure since the Fact or Faked television show and is now representing Night Vision Ops, an inexpensive line of night vision equipment. It was reported by some that later that night there was a mysterious UFO that hovered over the location for some time. You might search the web for them.

DonWare

If you’ve been to any of the IUFOC events over the years, you will have noticed Don Ware, who consistently brings interesting bits of information to share. Don has been a regular for as long as we can remember. He combines his understanding of Ufology with tidbits from the Urantia Book. Speaking of, this was the first year the Urantia Foundation was part of the festivities and their books were flying out the door. Maybe there is a new source of information that Ufologists haven’t explored yet.

Although the gathering draws attention from all over the world, there hasn’t been much ‘new’ news in decades regarding the phenomena. There does seem to be a bit more of an inquiry into the possibility of extraterrestrials living among us, though. There was a lively discussion between several fellows one evening, patrons and another ‘regular,’ that included a few retirees – detective, human resource manager and an engineer. We overheard them discussing the possibilities of ETs living among us and what that might be like, especially if the ET didn’t know they were and grew up as an orphaned human with a penchant for discovering his or her lineage. We’ll see what develops.

The digital age brings many opportunities we have yet to realize. One of the most precious is the community building, specifically the Ufology Community. Every artisan, author, blogger, creative, researcher, show host and videographer is just as important as any other, but separately there is only so much attention they will garner. This applies even more in regards to product or service websites that are competing with others for attention. Maintaining compelling material, products or services only goes so far.

We can help increase views and traffic in spite of all the competition. How? First of all, we really aren’t competition. We are a collective of support for Ufology in general. Through collaboration and participation we strengthen our position in the marketplace – and YOURS. Beyond the individual or website, we build a COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT. We’ve literally raised the bar for the industry. Just after launching there was a flurry of upgrades across the gamut of websites associated with Ufology. It was a long time coming.

UfologyPRSS brings hundreds of resources into one location  which is more enticing to the investigative ufologist. Individual websites garner substantially larger numbers of potential viewers as a result. The small pond expands into a lake and possibly an ocean of opportunity, clicks and ultimately sales and/or views.

How do we do that with UfologyPRSS?

Ufology News GoogleFirst of all, by joining with us as a Partner we’ll provide you with targeted traffic through promotions on Facebook and Google Adwords.

Roswell… the series

roswell highRoswell… the series

We’ve come a long way since the Roswell crash and years later the star charts from Betty and Barney Hill. The UFO experience has transformed through several iterations and manifestations that have produced books and even events of both short and long-term survival. Still, the obsession of ufologists to get to the truth spans a variety of topical areas including abductions, contact, physical sightings, government coverup and more. There are still deeper questions to ask about why ‘they’ are here and the notion that there could be aliens among us.

Many themes have been presented by movies and television, from benevolent to malevolent aliens and agendas, including not so nice governmental involvement. These same themes circulate amongst the ufologists and ufo enthusiasts, also with mixed views of the reality of extraterrestrial visitors and their intentions. Consequently the general view is one of keeping a distance, perhaps even a fearful notion even when curiosity of contact is in play. The stories of government and/or military malevolence and coverup only adds to the already confusing nature of the extraterrestrial conundrum.

Rarely are themes developed that allow us, as humans, to peer into the lives of others. Diversity training was and is a critical factor in the workplace, dealing with other countries and cultures, especially in the expansion of American companies moving into international engagement, manufacturing overseas and a workforce embedded in an entirely different culture. At first the attempt at expansion met with miserable failure because there was no consideration for other cultures; company leadership simply thought they could become the dominant culture with little effort. On the other hand, immigrants who entered the US were faced with having to learn the ways of their new culture, often completely foreign to their experience.

Now you are probably wondering why I digressed to foreign relations. It just seems natural to perceive the possibility of extraterrestrial races adapting to our world and, in effect, facing the same issues of learning about a new culture. We may not fully entertain the notion of such a possibility, but it often makes for good programming in the entertainment industry. One such series, known initially as Roswell High, was introduced around the turn of the century. The theme of the show wasn’t particularly popular, but it illustrated a different side of the the alien agenda.

A brief story description from Wikipedia…

Max Evans, his sister Isabel and their friend Michael Guerin appear to be human, but are in reality the survivors of the 1947 UFO crash known as the Roswell UFO incident. They are from the planet Antar. Upon emerging from stasis pods, they appeared to be 7-year-old orphaned humans. Max and Isabel are adopted by a loving pair of attorneys, the Evanses. Michael, who was not so lucky, entered the foster care system, bouncing from household to household with lots of families rejecting him.

The aliens have special powers, including the ability to:

  • rearrange molecules (change objects, heal injuries).
  • “dreamwalk” (observe, participate in, and manipulate others’ dreams).
  • sense each other’s emotions from afar.
  • create psychic connections that allow the alien to see into another’s mind.
  • perceive colorful halos or auras around humans that indicate emotional state.

Max, Isabel and Michael have successfully kept their true nature a secret for a decade. The series begins with the accidental shooting of Liz Ortecho, a human friend of Max’s. He cannot bear to see her die and risks bringing attention to himself when he uses his powers to save her life. Liz is soon let in on the secret, as are her friends Maria DeLuca and Alex Manes. The six teens quickly bond and learn to trust one another, and Max and Liz fall deeply in love, and Michael and Maria fall in love. Together the group fends off the suspicions of law enforcement, alien hunters, while seeking clues about the aliens’ origins.

From some of the stories floating through the ufology thoughtmosphere, there seem to be some eerily similar references. What is also important to note is the trepidation of those who may indeed be unaware of their origins and find themselves experiencing many of the types of abilities and or sensitivities mentioned. People have been tortured throughout history, emotionally and physically, for exhibiting abilities out of the ordinary. We don’t always know where these abilities come from, but they are definitely present in our world.

For those who tends to look deeper or perceive beyond the norm, shows like Roswell offer some consideration from both sides. Obviously people tend to freak out when faced with otherworldly notions. On the flip side the conundrum of those who are absent of terrestrial ties, as orphans and/or adoptees, remains nearly an emotional abyss with little or no access to qualified help. In that case, what would ‘qualified help’ be relative to the nature of the questions?

Making Contact – CE5 Style

Making Contact – CE5 Style

For nearly two decades this document was part of the official CSETI training materials. I believe many of the lessons described here still apply,

Let’s face it; it’s OK to be somewhat apprehensive when going out into the field for the first time. Vectoring in ET Spacecraft to initiate a citizen’s diplomatic mission with the ET visitors is not something you’ve done every day of your life. It’s not something you learn at home or in grade school or at the university. You can’t watch a “Do it yourself” program about it on educational TV, (hopefully that will change in the future), nor is it an activity that is just plain “intuitively obvious” which yields to a spontaneous “anything goes” approach.

Following the CSETI contact protocols can be extraordinarily helpful for simply one reason. They really do work! Dozens of successful Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind have been initiated by CSETI Working Groups in North America and in England by following these principles. So we invite you to follow our example and see if you can add to this growing body of experience. Remember these protocols are not cut in stone. They have been evolving constantly and are based on each attempt at contact. Without a doubt they will continue to evolve, hopefully with your contributions as well.

As the CSETI leadership has emphasized there are no true experts in the field of “extraterrestriology”(a term that I believe Dr Greer coined in 1993.) There are no tenured professors at major universities in “Saucer Studies” who are available for consultation if you have questions. Given the current level of general societal denial concerning the prescience of ET visitors, you will not likely be the recipient of major funding to finance your research.

Nevertheless you may be amazed at how successful you can be in establishing contact early in the course of your efforts (this contact worker certainly was), and you can do so with a minimal of equipment combined with the right attitude. Let’s start with the first step and that is forming a group, but as part of that discussion we should review how the initial CSETI research teams were organized. If you already have a team of friends who know each other well and are ready to go out into the field, you might want to skip over this upcoming CSETI history treatise and go on to the next section “Dealing with Fear”.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF CSETI CE-5 INITIATIVE WORKING GROUPS

CSETI working groups have formed in a number of ways. The first attempts at doing regular fieldwork started in North Carolina, where CSETI International Director Dr. Steven Greer resides. He started going out into the field with a number of local supporters in 1991. It was there in the Appalachian Mountains that these basic contact protocols were initiated, based on Dr. Greer’s preliminary investigations. Following this initial phase, he embarked on a 3 year effort that involved giving dozens and dozens of lectures and workshops in North America and in Europe to facilitate the formation of other CSETI Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind Initiative Working Groups, CE-5 I WGs.

The training process usually consisted of a public lecture on a Friday evening followed by an in depth all day workshop the next day. There the guiding principles of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence were described. (For a detailed explanation of these basic tenets please review Dr. Greer’s monograph available from the CSETI national office. It is sent out as part of the new member packet..) In addition the workshop participants were introduced to the guided meditation techniques that form the basis of Coherent Thought Sequencing (CTS).

At the workshop Dr. Greer reviewed the contact methods that enabled CSETI members to start their CE-5 research that very night. Under starry skies, Dr Greer’s demonstrations of how the contact protocols are carried out sometimes produced amazing results. More often than not there were sightings of anomalous lights that astounded many of the participants and on one occasion a truly historic event took place.

It occurred March 15, 1992 when following an all day CSETI workshop at Gulf Breeze Florida, no less than 4 ET spacecraft interacted with 50 of the participants for 15 minutes(For more details please see the full report in Dr. Greer’s monograph.) This spectacular occurrence was captured by several home videos. They show how three of the craft, which were visible as discs through binoculars, broke out of a loose formation and then took the shape of an equilateral triangle. This maneuver was in response to the CSETI’s light work that consisted of tracing triangles in the sky with powerful signal lanterns. The videos provided CSETI with dramatic documentation that served to recruit future working group members. (This working group coordinator, Dr. Joe Burkes of the Los Angeles CSETI contact team, joined the CE-5 Initiative in part because of convincing quality of these amazing home videos.)

In spite of high initial enthusiasm following these dramatic fieldwork demonstrations, working groups faced considerable difficulties in organizing themselves to do regular fieldwork. Often composed of people who had met for the first time at the workshop, they had to go through a complex process of training and socialization before they could work as an effective team. There are however a small number of outstanding exceptions to this pattern of participation in CSETI. In these instances teams formed from groups that were already doing contact work on their own and they brought CSETI in only after they already had established an effective and positive working relationship among themselves.

These pre-existing groups had a much higher probability of coalescing than those teams initially composed of strangers or as casual acquaintances. It cannot be over-emphasized that a CSETI Working Group’s success is highly dependent on the level of unity and cooperation between members of the team. This may be difficult to understand for those researchers who cannot acknowledge the consciousness links between CSETI members and our presumed ET collaborators. Nevertheless, it is the judgment of the current CSETI leadership that our efforts are being monitored by the extraterrestrials. Those teams that are plagued by individualism, selfishness, disunity and bickering, are simply not likely to get much contact. If some manifestation of ET contact does occur, but the level of dysfunctional behavior is high, it is almost certain that ongoing contact will not be sustained unless the team is able to overcome its shortcomings.

This concept implies that the extraterrestrials are actively monitoring the progress of CSETI Working Groups. This is an idea that both our harshest critics and open-minded skeptics would have great difficulty with on face value. Nevertheless it is CSETI’s impression that we have entered into a collaborative relationship with the extraterrestrials by initiating this citizens’ diplomatic movement. This notion is based on the fact that CSETI field teams regularly witness anomalous nocturnal lights and structured craft that interact with them.

In addition many individuals associated with CSETI will have sightings of craft and anomalous lights after they initiate plans for doing fieldwork. This can be quite amazing to some investigators because the sighting often occur over or near their homes.(On line subscribers please see upcoming article titled “CSETI, Sightings and Synchronicity” that describes this phenomenon in detail.)

As a results of Dr. Greer’s initial organizing efforts that involved many dozens of lectures and workshops from 1991 to 1994, a large number of teams coalesced and started doing field work. Of those initial teams put into the field, few were able to sustain ongoing research activities for more than a few months. Although each team’s success and failure can be analyzed in terms of the specific history of that group, a number of important lessons have emerged from this growing body of experience. The following suggestions are offered in the hope that they will help you maximize your chance of building a successful CE-5 Working Group.

Business meetings play an important role to a new CE-5 team. During the first few meetings in addition to reviewing the basic protocols, prospective field workers will need to share some details about themselves, especially why they are interested in contact work. This socialization process is essential in terms of building unity within the research team. The WG coordinator may want to carefully take note of the particular details of each new researchers story, as the better the WG coordinator knows herhis team, then the better shehe is able to lead the fieldwork.

Careful attention should be paid to the stated personal goals of prospective researchers, always keeping in mind the high ideals and goals of CSETI to facilitate a mutually beneficial, peaceful relationship with any and all ET civilizations visiting earth. Those who express fear-based assumptions about the visitors’ intentions may need special assistance and support from the group. The WG coordinator, who has the paramount responsibility for the maintaining cohesion of the team, will likely play a very active role in these preliminary discussions. It should always be recognized that CE-5 contact work is not for everyone and WG s are primarily research teams focusing on doing regular field work to investigate ET intelligence and spacecraft visiting earth. We are not a support group for those who believe they are contactees, “abductees” or want-to- bees.

Following brief business meetings, I suggest that the team should immediately go out to do field work. A recommendation of 2 or 3 outings the first month can help build the unity and camaraderie so necessary for building a successful team. A less rigorous schedule of fieldwork may prevent the development of team unity. Don’t be surprised if considerable attrition occurs within the ranks of the team during the first month or two of field operations. Expect perhaps a minimum of 50% of those who attend a workshop or the initial meetings to drop out.

For some it will simply be that fantasizing about fieldwork is far more attractive than actually doing it. Some individuals may want only to talk about UFOs, rather than doing something about an ET presence on Earth. After all, staying up late at night, at times in adverse weather, to engage in an activity as strange, audacious and exciting as vectoring in ET spacecraft, may be too difficult for couch potatoes.

For other prospective field workers the obstacles they face may be interpersonal. Let’s face it, not everyone is a team player. The UFO field has more than its fair share of strange birds that may not have the social skills to work effectively in a group. The more stable and the more secure an individual is in terms of having a steady well paying job, family support for CSETI research and having adequate amounts of free time to dedicate to this important work, the more likely heshe will be able to persevere and successfully integrate into a CSETI Working Group. Delaying going out to do field work, and staying with discussion type of business meetings during the initial formation of the team, has been fatal for a number of Working Groups. They could not coalesce as a team in part because of poor leadership that failed to grasp the urgency of initiating research activities.

When subjected to a seemingly endless series of discussions about things theoretical, those prospective CSETI investigators who are eager to go out into field, will understandably loose their enthusiasm. This armchair type of “research” unfortunately occurs far to often in the UFO community. A steady diet of wild speculation is constantly being dished out instead of obtaining solid information based on prospective scientific investigation. CSETI has launched the CE-5 Initiative to remedy this sad situation. Thus a rigorous schedule of fieldwork early in the development of the group, will help separate the talkers from the doers and at the same time help add important new experience and scientific research to CSETI’s growing data base. Not unexpectedly, the big talkers may simply drop out when an active schedule of fieldwork is initiated, and the team’s identity will happily coalesce around the most highly motivated researchers.

END OF PART ONE, PART TWO “DEALING WITH FEAR” to follow.
