I’ve been kind of an outlier my entire life, especially as vocal as I am in the field of ufology and things that go bump in the night. I share my personal stories, coupled with valid research and study, that often keeps me out of the ‘notable’ circles and certainly out of the limelight of Ufology Expos and the like, although I know nearly all the players personally. I respect the promoters and wisdom-sharers, but I think there is much more to be discussed.
I have a friend that has been kind of anomaly, who when I first met him I locked on his eyes in conversation and within a few moments I saw another set of eyes behind his own looking at me… almond-shaped. Those who know me well know that I have a tendency not to blink for long periods of time and that alone can be a bit intimidating when I’m having a conversation, but it certainly wasn’t to him. Was he just a contactee, or hybrid?
I didn’t say anything at the time during our first meeting. He’d been referred to me as someone I’d be very interested in interviewing for One World. The woman who referred him was Linnea Reid, president of Light and Sound Technologies in Scottsdale. They had developed one of the first LED glasses used to induce altered states of consciousness. I hadn’t thought of her in years and as I was writing this I paused to check on her status and noticed an obituary from 2017. RIP, Linnea.
Linnea was a powerful woman, known for her long dissertations and unabashed acknowledgements of the help she received from multidimensional being who she stated often appeared in her office spontaneously. She wasn’t your average experiencer by far, with honorary doctorates from across the world papering her office wall. She lectured extensively on the technology that her company had developed and its usefulness in creating meditative states of consciousness. When she took the time to reach out, it was best to listen and follow up.
I had a friend tag along, Annie, who I introduced to Rodger Schnellenberger not too long afterward. They were wed the following year. Rodger was killed in a car accident less than two weeks after their marriage. Rodger shared my passion for harmony among people and planet and was the guest host for our first One World show. I asked her later if she’d ‘seen’ anything unusual during our chat. She related that she saw a large green eye a couple of feet in front of Tom and couldn’t understand why. Again, contactee or hybrid?
A couple of weeks later I met with Tom again. This time I confronted him about his eyes. He evaded the question at first, then said that no one had ever asked him about them. He confided that his mother was ‘abducted’ when she became pregnant for him. He said he had been followed his entire life. I wasn’t convinced, but I could not deny what I had seen with my own eyes and I just don’t hallucinate.
There’s more to the story, but I’ll reserve that for readers of Zendor the Barbarian Part Deux. However, I will share the interview that we had a few months later. He and Rachel echo the need for the rise in consciousness and the sense of love that few humans really have the mettle to muster….
Dr. Joe Burkes posted an article recently, asking the question: WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT UFOs ARE IMPORTANT? I was moved by his post. In particular and with great respect for his work, I’d like to share some thoughts sparked by a comment that stood out for me.
“For the UFO question to have a truly major impact on the mass consciousness this subject will need to be transformed from an entertaining diversion and become a way of addressing the seemingly insurmountable problems our planet is facing.”
I think that statement is tantamount to the trials and tribulations of selfish human-centric behaviors. How do we really resolve those insurmountable problems? Humans are selfish still. Compassionately devoted living is far from ubiquitous, let alone common.
We treat the phenomena just like we treat the insurmountable problems – with curiosity initially, perhaps even with some passion. Then, bereft of the ability to ask the right questions or take the right actions, i.e. changing behaviors and/or habits, not much happens. Doesn’t expanded awareness and consciousness naturally lead us to those questions?
How would those actions look? What could or do we observe as evidence? What lens(es) are we looking through? How do our experiences, messages, understanding or wisdom apply as a contribution to, as the good Swami calls it, the global ‘upwising,’? Can we take our eyes off the stars and focus on bettering each other’s lives down here?
Do we really need to be distracted by disclosure? Or, are we applying the same bullying tactics as those we abhor? That paste [presence of ET/NHIB (non-human intelligent being)] has been out of the tube for decades in reality, yet we don’t consider it ‘official’ until political leaders acknowledge it.
It seems the truth is, other than a niche market/population, nobody seems to care all that much. It seems to be nothing more than humorous cliches or innuendos outside the ufology community. It’s a lot of work to change that behavior. We tend to rock too many boats. How do we rise the tide more effectively?
Imho, and it may be only mine, if we truly pay attention to the communication we’ve (contactees) received and understand it, it isn’t about the technological advances or ET solving our problems – just the opposite is true. That fact has been obfuscated in all the ufology gatherings which tends to distract rather than focus attention on practical goals.
The message I believe we, as experiencers, can agree on is that the human race is evolving to solve their own problems through and with indirect intervention via our ‘individual events.’ Learning how to glean the wisdom, presented from different perspectives, is a primary ‘lesson’ taught by NHIB. It’s consistent with all the other terrestrial messages that resonate with our being; our mind, heart and spirit.
From what I garner, that is the way it is done across the universe. Is it true? That is the core of the communication I and countless others have received for decades. Is there a conversation about it that makes it practical in our everyday lives? I see hints of it.
It’s my understanding that once we reach a certain stage of performance, evidence that we ‘got the memo,’ then more open contact is available. The human threat has been transformed. Right now, the barbaric overlords (another term for the human threat) of our planetary administration are bereft of solutions.
Hopefully, the people are taking up the call. Like many I’m sure, it’s overwhelming to me, still in the work-a-day world with only so much time. Still, we have to work within the systems, not necessarily with the same tools that built them, in order to facilitate the kind of change we all feel is possible.
Consciousness (our own or NHIB) can only facilitate so much. Getting our heads around that, a kind of competent cooperative consciousness, is a challenge to grok on an individual basis, let alone finding things to do collaboratively. Maybe it is the hope of help and the faith in the human race that the UFO reality is best suited to promote. We already know they respond to that kind of attention in open conversations, right?
Here’s a conversation with Dr. Jeffery Mishlove that might assist… – On Hearing Voices.
For decades people have been curious and investigated UFOs in myriad ways. What is the sociology of UFOlogy today? In the late 80s Tim Beckley introduced New Age and Alien Agenda gatherings around the country. The International UFO Congress began in Tucson in 1991 with Ret. Col. Wendelle Stevens, Jim Diletosso and Ken Liljegren’s team as support.
I’ll digress for a moment. My first experiences with non-human intelligence was in 1962, advancing to something different in 1965 which was apparently the ‘normal’ type of contact in the Midwest in the 50s and 60s, the orange cigar-shaped cloud. During that same period, UFOs were apparently shutting down ICBM silos around the globe with exquisite showmanship.
Curious and investigative, I continued my quest to know, not just what, how this kinda stuff happens. I love the high strangeness. What makes it tick? I had a lot of questions, numerous events and some experiences I still wonder about today. I had deep conversations with a lot of folks; experts, researchers and experiencers across the gamut.
I got to know Tim and Wendelle over the years. Jim and I became friends and later he recommended me as manager for The Prophets Conference (1997). It gave me an opportunity to have conversations that are extremely rare, up close and personal without interruption. Some of the folks who were there: Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Steven Greer, Jose Arguelles, David Icke, Linda Molten-Howe, Stanton Friedman, Zacharia Sitchen and 2 dozen more. I got to know many prominent folks in the field of UFOlogy many years ago, with friendships still today.
2010 began by assuming responsibility for a UFO discussion group in the Phoenix valley. We met in a community room of a local fire station. Our guest speakers included Claude Swanson, Travis Walton, Alejandro Rojas and more. We also had meditation experiments using music that produced some varied and amazing personal experiences, all of a contact nature. There were about 35 people in the room. Afterward, one elderly woman reported seeing massive ET machinery surrounding the group and ‘working’ on each person.
From 2010 to 2014 I was a vendor at the IUFOC, having moved to Ft. McDowell in Arizona. In 2013 we debuted UFOlogyPRSS.com at the International UFO Congress, with over 100 blogs from around the world in one place, up-to-the-moment material. It rose the bar for UFOlogy-based websites. It was our virtual model of folks getting along even if they had opposing views. We’ve also got a number of authors featured; podcasts and radio shows, too.
Meanwhile, UFOlogy in general seems to be challenged. Experiencers are on one side and the nuts and bolts scientists on the other with conspiratorialists scattered about in each camp. Dr. Mishlove and I take a frank and open look at what the Sociology of UFOlogy is today. Although challenges do exist, there seems to be a call for change. What that will be remains to be seen.
Here’s how Dr. Mishlove framed the interview, “Here he [Zen] speaks as a participant-observer sharing his reflections on the current community of interest centering on UFO phenomena. He describes his disillusionment with a nexus of individuals focusing on the notions of the Ashtar Command and the Galactic Federation. He describes various fears associated with the very idea of alien life forms. However, he suggests that we presently have no actual evidence that there is a reason to be fearful of UFO activity.”
In the ‘contact’ scenarios, experiencers have to deal with seemingly incredulous events and still continue with some kind of ‘normal’ life. Whether individual or family needs, the daily functional activity still needs doing. There is something else going on, though, as shows like this don’t happen if the conversation isn’t necessary, imho.
Our hopes were to address common concerns and explore a little of what else is happening. I was a willing participant in spite of my trepidation. Talking about the Ashtar Command and Galactic Federation, however real and true they may be, is not the kind of talk that garners credibility normally. There’s evidence they do exist dating back to 1952 with George Van Tassel.
Although we discussed the potential confusion with deities, there is still more confusion around the topic. George Van Tassel met Robert Short, who took on the ‘Ashtar Command’ label, used it for contrary purposes and wasn’t connected to the ‘source’ like George. I met Bob in the late 1980s and didn’t feel he had a good connection, if any, talking nonsense about conspiracy theories interwoven with an Ashtar Command that would somehow take action against the cabal. The latter was infectious and unfortunately obfuscates the truth still, imho.
Jeffrey made a delicate subject easy to discuss. We had a nice mind flight. Perhaps you’ll consider sharing this article and video.
My wife asked me to include this interview from January of 2013. She said it spoke to her in ways nothing else had. She’s Russian-born and trained pianist as well as a 3HO Kundalini Yoga teacher. She has a compelling argument…
I had a dream come true this last weekend, a conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove. How it came about was as synchronistic as it could be and the added bonus of actually being interviewed by him for New Thinking Allowed (three episodes) was certainly icing on the cake. I’m so grateful for the opportunity.
Most of you I’m sure are aware that my life is ‘themed’ with the idea of harmony among people and planet – a true ‘new world order.’ It’s not a push or pull, but a consensus of ‘what is’ and how to merge our form, fit and function on Earth with it. Well, we explored that very topic…
Would love your comments and sharing with friends and networks. Jeffrey thought this is a timely conversation. Thanks in advance for your likes, shares and comments.
It was really a pleasure, full of excitement and trepidation. To feel vulnerable enough to share this kind of stuff, and to be invited by the premiere host of our time, is a most humbling experience. I neglected to explore ‘facilitate’ to make it clear I do not feel like I am ‘The One’ which is often a mistaken perspective people take.
A New World Order isn’t about dominance and submission in any traditional sense, nothing to fear in other words. What is of primary importance is that each individual discovery their true form, fit and function in this world; a true new world order naturally emerges from that process. It is not without chaos or conflict. In fact, the transformation of it is how the new order emerges.
Those areas of chaos and conflict hold the key and asking the right questions, beginning with “Why?” and followed by “How?” lead us to discoveries beyond our imagination in most cases. I wrote a piece about the event that resides on MothershipCafe.com if you are interested in my considerations.
Jeffrey did a follow-up supportive video about a gentleman we both admire, Donald Fraser Keys. Jeff knew him well. I have modeled PlanetaryCitizens.net based on his initial work, along with a mentor of mine, Khigh Alex Dheigh. He was involved with the promotion of world citizenship. Khigh is featured in a video there reading a world citizen credo. It’s worthy of attention. Some of you might recognize him from the Manchurian Candidate or Wo Fat on Hawaii Five-0.
Whether or not our perception of ‘scheduled events’ is a coping strategy for high strangeness or indeed an attempt to become more visible, it is obvious there is a massive infrastructure of communication networks buried in our consciousness. Some tap into it for greater or lesser periods. Its nature of being ‘out of time’ as a non-linear and even non-local series of events give us cause to explore the phenomena further, but how?
Perhaps the idea of discovering our true form, fit and function leads us in the right direction. We already know the universe has impeccable math contained within it. Why wouldn’t we as well? I think I might have a way to at least begin to discern the process, if one is asking the questions, of course.
Oftentimes one would notice an increase in what I like to call ‘tangential’ thinking; darting about the mind’s field of available information and having fleeting thoughts that lead to others in a seemingly disjointed fashion. These same events in consciousness also happen in conversations where the subject matter seems to change on a dime and tracking the points might be challenging to observers as well as the participants at times. The latter promotes deep friendships from my experience.
Recognizing this processing system, a pattern of thinking if you will, often contains the hints to accessing one’s form, fit and function. If we are observant enough, patterns of opportunity to engage the present present themselves in a variety of ways. Being aware of the tangential, we look for congruent or repetitive aspects that show up in our lives in practical and pragmatic ways; a prudent path or multiple sequential ones are often revealed. Simply, what shows up in front of us that we can see needs to be done is often the direction our discovery takes.
As patterns connect and evolve we begin to see how our specific skill set, or at least a gut feeling we recognize, leads to noticing specific and synchronistic events unfolding around us. What do we do then? This is where our choices affect the flow. In the event of ascertaining ‘flow,’ we get a sense of ‘yes’ without the slightest hesitation. All others are suspect and may need further analysis.
The nature of universal flow includes the multidimensional mathematical models of Neppe & Close, Hawkings and others, it would seem. The manifestation of events congruent with such laws of the universe produce a sense of harmony or even bliss in the individual experience, sometimes even group experiences. Humans haven’t been in touch with that in their climb to dominance in the world. Stewardship has been lacking.
The need for stewardship is the essence of the ‘message’ from those ‘with’ the Galactic Federation as well. The mathematical models turn into experiential events internally, sometimes even externally, as recognition of certain patterns that produce serendipitous moments. Speculative as it may be, we have the opportunity to explore it as an aspect of consciousness manifesting in form, fit and function on scales currently incomprehensible.
The Old Word Order, a paradigm of command and control, even though it has been masqueraded as a New World Order, cannot compare to the scope and sequence of what is to come. Planetary or World Citizens by nature, still defined by so many names and titles in the world now, can sense a change coming and feel the need to support it. Many just aren’t sure how, yet.
Perhaps this natural evolution is what frightened the ruling families who’ve managed the mayhem throughout history by instilling a fear of a unified world through whatever means available. They think it means they will lose power, and maybe how they’ve viewed their power and its influence will cease. What emerges will be far more powerful in the sharing of resources, environmentally-friendly industrial processes, alternative energy distribution, even reassignment of military functionality as guaranteed supply chains and support systems for the shift.
These notions are worth consideration and perhaps they will find favor in reading. I hope so.
For several years now, data has been collected and correlated by a dedicated group of folks under the banner of the Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Experiences (FREE). The organization, like many, has gone through some iterations and changed to Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Experiences, although they haven’t added an ‘E.’ Their surveys are directed toward contactees or ‘experiencers’ of this phenomena.
From their website: “BEYOND UFOS: THE SCIENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND CONTACT WITH NON HUMAN INTELLIGENCE”. After 4 years of conducting the world’s first comprehensive multi-language and international academic research study on UFO related Contact with Non Human Intelligence (NHI), The FREE Foundation has finally published its new book!
From a promotional email:
FREE is in the 5th year of administering the world’s first comprehensive, multi-language worldwide academic research study on individuals that have had Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) related contact experiences with Non-Human Intelligence (NHI)– The FREE Experiencer Research Study.
The Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Experiences, or FREE, is a 501c3 not for profit academic research foundation. FREE was co-founded by the late Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Harvard University Astrophysicist Dr. Rudy Schild, Australian researcher Mary Rodwell, and Rey Hernandez, an attorney, a UAP Contact Experiencer, and Ph.D. candidate at UC Berkeley. Over the last 5 years, the FREE Foundation has had over 10 Ph.D.s, mostly retired academic professors, and 20 other lay researchers, volunteering in this research study. FREE’s Executive Director is Dr. Rudy Schild, a retired Astrophysicist from Harvard University.
Due to the controversial nature of the FREE research data, the UAP-related contact phenomenon is not studied in universities. Even the field of “Parapsychology” continues to view the UAP contact phenomena as a taboo topic and the majority within parapsychology do not want to be directly associated with the UAP phenomenon. FREE’s academic research study seeks to address this problem. Until we began our research, no one had a basic understanding on the topic of UAP-related contact with Non-Human Intelligence (NHI). Why? Because the basic research data collection on this topic was never undertaken. We discovered that many of our survey findings contradict much of what has been circulating in the field of Ufology. The true story of UAP-related contact with Non-Human Intelligence was not being accurately presented. FREE’s work is thus a paradigm-shifting event.
As you will soon observe from our data, FREE’s research suggests that the physical aspects of this phenomenon are but a small fraction of attributes associated with these complex manifestations. Indeed, it is the pervasive non-physicality, the parapsychological and other paranormal aspects, that comprise the majority of survey respondents’ experiences.
What can we do with all this data? Now, nearly 5 years later after the concerted effort to develop the surveys and distill the information into usable forms there is an obvious revelation in not only are these encounters real, they are much more prevalent than previously thought. Thousands of events have gone into the compilation of the statistics in order to share the relationships. No where else has this been accomplished yet. This volume is a requirement for any serious ufology research and anyone interested in the evolution of our consciousness and interaction with that which is beyond human.
The contributors to the book also share nearly the same views from their observations and research, let alone their personal experiences, presenting their ideas from a variety of perspectives that meet the scholarly requirements for a great work and leading-edge research in what has traditionally been a hands-off fashion for lack of empirical data and/or repeatable event construction. The nature of these encounters is certainly more random yet perhaps as the information is shared and studied there will be better questions that help us to understand and even participate in the phenomena.
If you are here and reading this, then you owe it to yourself to get the book.
