Cosmic Conundrum – Who Am I?

Who are you? Really… Who are you? This workbook is an expository guide to facilitate multidimensional awareness. Are you a spiritual being having a human experience? Would you like to wake up the human to the spiritual experience? A point of perspection (introspection/perception) dances in the balance of the seer’s vision.

Have you suffered from the limited experiences and thinking of others? Is it possible that you might have galactic origins from elsewhere in the Milky Way?

Many are awakening to the potential of galactic citizenry and/or spiritual connectedness beyond the notion of reincarnation. I can help you engage contact experiences and garner opportunities for developing your personal abilities and/or ‘gifts.’

This psychospiritual coursework is designed to bridge worlds, build relationships across dimensions and transform lives. What you may think you know about extraterrestrials, guardian angels and spiritual beings will be challenged as you explore the pages of this book.

Points of view differ regarding our origins and the development of human beings through their ‘dominion’ on earth. What if there was more to the story that we haven’t even explored yet because we’ve been too terrestrially focused in our ‘outer’ living environment? What is your natural state of being? Is there more? Would you like to find out?

Clearing the cobwebs out of the soular mind begins with questioning the very foundation of one’s belief system. It doesn’t hurt at all and it does lead to deeper understanding. This path is not for the timid, but your courage will definitely be rewarded.

A great companion book is StuBBing My TOE on Purpose – A Seminal View of Consciousness, Cosmology and the Congruence of Science and Spirituality, available on Amazon and CreateSpace.

Author Zen Benefiel offers a healthy dose of spiritual wisdom for an “out-of-this-world” reader experience. Some dynamics which make this book a helpful guide are the author’s out-of-body experiences, his education and unique intelligence, combined with (but not limited to) an aptitude for research, diverse content synthesis and organization, complete with workbook opportunities for reflection on the provided material.

Zen embraces psychological, scientific, intuitive and mystical explanations, offering practical exercises for meditation, releasing emotional blockages, mentorship, deepening the experience of “flow,” and more. Where relevant, Zen gives simple and effective definitions of spiritual terms for comprehension, and methodical processes for readers to achieve similar results with the suggested exercises. The author’s knowledge of mental-emotional transformational methodologies makes for well-explored and deeply penetrating lessons on the self-help topics.

Woven by the common thread of his mystical experiences, Zen continually provides insightful logic regarding the ultimately inevitable connections among science and spirituality, connecting within, and galactic citizenry. Meaningful personal stories from the author’s physical life experience are steeped in wisdom. That said; the author’s emotional vulnerability is a great asset to humanizing the mystical experiences he lives out.

Zen’s authentic sharing creates a good foundation for us (the readers) to contemplate and realize the unique reality to which we have embraced and have been exposed. The book reveals compelling evidence that we can each go beyond our normal waking consciousness to connect in higher and finer ways. The material provided ties into an overall cosmic picture, complex enough to stretch our ideas of reality and cosmic responsibility while, at the same time, practical enough to not lose accessibility in the lessons offered.

Ethereal experiences are occasionally scoffed at due to popular misconceptions of an ethereal person’s resulting incongruence with normal reality (aka, “airy-fairy”). However, sound reasoning and pragmatic advice ensure that readers like us can learn from the offerings even if we aren’t able to relate the material in its entirety. For example, Zen offers practical guidance on the most basic and often overlooked necessity of balancing and resolving our emotions. Since such healthy (and practical) behaviors aren’t yet common sense for mankind, we could clearly argue that not only is a person’s reality highly relative to the beholder, but reality is also highly relative to how many people are beholding it. In other words, common sense is relative to what a group considers common. Even then, a high commonality doesn’t necessarily indicate truth.

The book finishes with a long anticipated, full-blown explanation of the author’s involvement with the Ashtar Command and galactic citizenry at large. It completes with thought-provoking inquiries that are artfully designed, not to coerce, but to make the reader ponder their own spiritual and galactic responsibilities. At minimum, the existing platform from which the author invites the reader to make positive considerations for spiritual living is a love-based one. If you are a fan of the Ashtar Command and the Celestial Alliances, you’ll like this book even better. Regardless of what you believe or experience, this versatile book can be of benefit to you.

Alien Agendas and Anal Probes

Aliens and Anal Probes – Jason Colavito

www.jasoncolavito.com/aliens-and-anal-probes.html

On the other hand, author Zen Benefiel self-published a book called Alien Agendas and Anal Probes (2014) that promised to investigate “the science behind the anal probes” and what these probes can tell us about why the aliens are really here. But his book isn’t a history so much as New Age-influenced fringe speculation, so it is of limited use in peeling back the layers of the abduction experience.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jason was gracious enough to include my book. I think he missed the main point, though. The science behind the ‘probe’ is stated fairly simply and succinctly, probably too simply for peering eyes to grok. Moments after having the experience I was reflecting on why it happens.

The first thing that popped into my head was not some New Age influence speculation. I’m a math and science buff, intelligent and investigative beyond most. Math and science are so present in the constructs of the universe, beginning with the foundation of sound and light condensing, or lower the vibratory rate, into form.

Advanced races that can travel across time and space are familiar with the natural laws and order of the universe, so they are well aware of the effects of adjusting frequencies. If you consider the known quantities of information about the nature of frequencies and the subtle adjustments that produce amazing changes in our bodies and environment, it just makes sense that the same adjustments can be made with technology applied to our bodies.

The simple science regarding the anal probe is that the sphincter is an end point, as well as the genitals, of the perineum nerve. The nerve is directly connected to the spinal nerve which, according to the ancient arts, is the path of Kundalini Serpent Fire when it is ignited. So, we can ignite this Fire (Divine as it is) with practice AND it can be accelerated by procedures.

What happens when the vibratory rate is adjusted by such measures? Usually an orgasm is the first thing. That’s why the mistaken idea of sexual experimentation comes, no pun intended. We are so oppressed in regard to considering or discussion anything of a sexual nature that folks haven’t been able to transcend their paradigms. In time, we will.

So, thanks Jason, I appreciate the opportunity to address the subject again.

Luba was reading one of my books just moments ago on this Sunday morning, coffee in hand, when she burst forth through tarmac toward the sun again. Okay, couldn’t help the Moody reference. Alien Agendas and Anal Probes is what she was reading, then announcing with every ounce of surety in her that she was shaken to the core and this was exactly what she had been looking for… in Tom Campbell, in Kundalini, all the books and videos, everything… that this was the core of our existence – why we are here and what we are doing.

Farbeit for me to resist the opportunity to share her excitement, and my amazement at her discovery and how much it meant to her as a keystone experience. She thought everyone needs to read this and see/feel for themselves how much sense it makes.

And so the excerpt:

We might see it as God dwelling in man again. I eventually understood it as cosmic consciousness condensing into form and becoming aware of it.

The result, according to the narrator, is a sense of oneness and willingness to operate free from intellectual pursuits driven by the desire to dominate the environment. Each individual soul has purpose, like a thread in the tapestry of life that is just as important as any other thread. The beauty of the tapestry is dependent on the threads, no matter the color, diameter or length.

When all the threads become aware of the tapestry, it becomes alive and whole – able to be viewed. Individuals are like fractals of the tapestry, able to contain the original yet finding form, fit and function within it as their own filaments combine to form the whole.

Just in case you want to read the whole thing…

The Hypostasis of the Archons

The Hypostasis of the Archons

An Introduction By Bernadette Rezak

(with comments by Zen Benefiel)

In this day there is much “talk” about The Archons mostly in the Experiencer circles and more widely in the UFO lingo when speaking about certain Aliens.

Being an Ordained Gnostic Priest and serving as a High priestess since 1990, it seems to me that the subject of the Archons has not had much consideration. The Hypostasis of The Archons is otherwise known as “The Reality of the Rulers” and these Rulers come into play form the very Formation of US.

So I begin this talk with a definition of an Archon in the gnostic terminology.

An Archon, in the Gnosticism of late antiquity, referred to several servants of the demiurge, the “Creator God” that stood between the human race and a transcendent God that could only be reached through gnosis. In this context they have the role of the angels and the daemons of the Old Testament.

Further the Gnostic concept of the Universe is the role played by the seven world-creating archons known as the Hebdomad.

These seven are semi-hostile powers. They are the last and lowest emanations of the Godhead: below them-and frequently considered as derived from them –comes the world of the actually devilish powers.

There are certain exceptions: Basilides taught the existence of a “great archon” called Abraxas who presided over the 365 archons.

The ancient astronomy taught that above the seven planetary spheres was an eighth, the sphere of the fixed stars. In Gnostic teachings, it was in this eighth sphere that the mother to whom these archons owed their origin dwelt, Sophia (Wisdom) or Barbelo.

Hebdomad denotes the seven archons and also the name of the place denoting the heavenly regions over which the seven archons presided. (perhaps the number of perfection is derived from this understanding?)

What is an Archon?

Taken from the Greek word archai it means, “origins, beginning, prior to time.’

In the classical Mediterranean world, archon was commonly used for the governor of a province or any religious or governmental authority. So the plural term of Archons in gnostic texts were “the Authorities”.

Archons, then, are a species of inorganic beings that emerged in the solar system prior to the formation of the earth. A genuine species with their own proper habitat and may even be considered god-like but they lack intentionality and occasionally stray away from their boundaries to intrude on the human realm.  They are said to intensely envy humanity because we possess the intentionality that they lack. (this does not mean they intrude with malevolent intent.)

The Mystery Schools teach that the Archons are an alien force that intrudes subliminally upon the human mind and distracts us from sanity and higher elevation. It is not them to blame for our own actions of inhumanity for we have the potential to follow the truth in our hearts. Deviant and abnormal tendencies of violence and inhumane behavior therefore are a result of weakness on our part to follow our worst human failings, due to intrusion of the Archons on our space. (a lack of understanding promotes fear first; fearlessness comes from seeking understanding of the truth.)

The Archons are also –OUR COSMIC KIN

Psycho-Spiritual –offspring of Aeon Sophia. (An Aeon is a God understood in terms of physics of consciousness)

Inorganic entities are two types: embryonic and reptilian.

They exist independent of humankind. They exist as a presence in our minds.

Risk of invading our minds is far greater than any physical risk they make by breaching the biosphere.

Working through telepathy and suggestion the Archons attempt to deviate us from our course of evolution.

(The notion of the 72 names of God, from the esoteric Hebrew teachings (Kaballistic); 36 greater  and 36 lesser denote those who impart wisdom and those who test it, the ‘invasion’ of temptation.)

The Gnosis Theory of Alien Intrusion

Roswell 1947, the UFO phenomenon, present day encounters, alien intrusion are rampant everywhere. In 1947 an alien ship crashes in Roswell. In 1945 The Nag Hammadi scrolls are found in Egypt, although they were not realized until 1947 where they were brought to the Light, announced to the world.

Gnosis means “inner knowing.” The Nag Hammadi Scrolls were lost teachings of the Mystery Schools and these two major events were happening at the same time on Earth.

Gnostics were Pre-Christian ancient seers that explored the cosmos at large. In heightened perception, Gnostics developed a vast cosmological vision centered in a female deity, the Divine Sophia. The Gnostic creation myth explains, in detail, how inorganic alien beings came to be present in our solar system.

friendly neighborsFirst hand encounters with inorganic beings called Archons, ET’s or Aliens abounded in the Gnostic teachings. They are benevolent or neutral toward humanity.

Physical descriptions of Archons, two types are clearly identified:

A neonate or embryonic type

A Draconic or reptilian type

Descriptions fit the Greys and Reptilians of contemporary reports to a TEE as in Extra Terrestrial!

Gnostic texts use mythological language to describe actual events in prehistory as well as long term developments in the human psyche.

(This information as a clarification from the ancient mystery schools is imperative to understand as we move forward toward Harmony Among People and Planet. We are part of a vast inter-connected network of universal construct, designed to reveal itself to those who seek to understand and unite as ONE.  The continued creation of separative notions is an act of choice, even perhaps unintentional ignorance. The conduit is closing, as we were told in the August, 2002 message.)

New Hope for Contactees

FREE-WPNew Hope for Contactees

There is a groundswell of activity on an entirely different level than traditional ufological research, something that has been ever-present yet kept out of the limelight for various reasons. Those reasons vary from possible incredulity to outright denial of the possibility, but let’s face it folks, we’re not alone and the communication circuits have been open for a long time.

Scott Mandelker’s book From Elsewhere: Being ET in America brought out many such ‘contactees’ and their experiences. Their ability to communicate experiences and share the ‘message’ from others was often poorly articulated and, quite frankly, sounded like new-agey gobbledigook most of the time. So, how could anyone really take them seriously, huh? Today, nearly 30 years later the scene is much different.

The growing numbers of ‘contactee’ experience now includes professional people across nearly every industry imaginable, including the realms of astro- and quantum physics. Well respected academicians and researches are discovering that there is much more to the story than meets the proverbial eye (third or otherwise) and the notion of an expanded consciousness capable of perceiving into other realms is tantamount to the new discoveries.

If you’ve had experiences and would like to participate in the research and sharing amongst fellow contactees, please explore the survey hosted on the FREE Website.

Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters

We at FREE, the Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters, are undertaking the first ever comprehensive ACADEMIC research project on the ET Contact Phenomena–   The FREE Experiencer Research Project.   Our study will focus on individuals who have had any type of “Contact” with ETs, who we are defining as a “Non-Human Intelligent Being”, but the primary focus will be on UFO related ET contact.

FREE was established with the insistence and guidance of Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man on the moon, and Dr. Rudy Schild, Emeritus Professor of Astro-Physics at Harvard University.  Both are founding members of FREE’s Board of Advisors.

No one has ever attempted this type of study on Experiencers before– it will be the first comprehensive ACADEMIC study on the ET contact phenomena involving a series of two surveys and a formal interview.  Phase 1 is our initial survey that is already embedded in our website.  A more extensive survey, our Phase 2 survey, will be provided to those individuals that choose to participate in our formal interviews.  The formal interview will be the Phase 3 component of our study.

The FREE Experiencer Research Project is being supervised by 2 retired Professors of Psychology–   Dr. Jon Klimo, the world’s leading expert on the so called “Paranormal” phenomena, and Dr. Leo Sprinkle, the pioneer in the research field of “ET Contact” who published his first article on this subject in 1962.  By the way, both Dr. Klimo and Dr. Sprinkle are “Experiencers”.

Dr. Klimo is the Chair of our research project.  Dr. Klimo has chaired over 250 Ph.D. dissertations, 75 of them on the topic of the “paranormal”.  Dr. Klimo has also taught “Research Methodology” for over 40 years.

Other members of our research project are: Mary Rodwell, Whitley Strieber, Barbara Lamb, Ralph Steiner, Kathleen Marden, Denise Stoner, Giorgio Piacenza, Dr. Joe Lewels, Dr. Michael Melton, Chase Kloetzke, and several other members. This is the cream of the crop when it comes “ET Contact Researchers”.  Most of these individuals have worked with “Experiences” for over 25 years.

The ET Contact Phenomena comes in “all flavors and colors”– some Experiencers perceive their experiences as extremely positive while some as extremely negative, and so many in between.  FREE does not take any position regarding what might be the “ET Agenda”.  We might have our own personal individual hypothesis and beliefs, but as an organization we stand neutral on the ET Agenda issue.  The ET Contact Phenomena is extremely complex and we agree with Einstein when he said: Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.

ANONYMITY: As a participant for our 2 surveys and formal interview, you have a choice to Rey and Dr. Mitchell,remain “ANONYMOUS”. There will be no way for us to find out who you are and where you live if you wish not to identify yourself.

Please inform all “Experiencer”, individuals that have had any type of “Contact” with an ET (a “Non-Human Intelligent Being”), about our FREE Experiencer Research Project and encourage them to take our initial survey that is located in our website.

UFOlogyPRSS Curator, Zen Benefiel, will be hosting Co-Founder Rey Hernandez during the 2015 IUFOC so look for us at the event and absolutely feel FREE to engage. Reach out to either one of us if you would like to schedule some time while at the event.
