How can I communicate with ETs?

This question is arising more and more frequently from scientists, researchers and investigators who are convinced of the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial beings and who want to take the next step of communicating with them.  Interestingly, even some experiencers who have had contact for years are asking how they can initiate contract, rather than having to wait for ETs to come knocking on their bedroom doors at night.  And yet, despite the growing interest in the subject, this may still be the most controversial of all the forbidden questions.

Why communicate with ETs?

Regardless of the many positive human-ET contact experiences that we hear about, negative contact events are also still being reported, and the human-ET contact phenomenon remains a risky business with no guaranteed safe harbor in sight.  So, why would any intelligent, level-headed human being want to risk initiating contact with beings who seem capable of inflicting so much pain and unhappiness?  If you asks scientists, investigators and explorers in any field why they step outside their warm, safe laboratories and libraries and venture out into the vast, mysterious unknown, they will tell you they do it to challenge themselves, to satisfy their curiosity and to expand the scope of human knowledge.  Likewise, if you ask Ufologists and contact researchers why they want to meet and...

Should I get therapy for my contact experiences?

Not necessarily.  While all human-ET contact events share similarities, each experience is as individual as the person who experiences it.  Human-ET contact can manifest in a multitude of ways and can happen a single time or recur repeatedly over the course of a lifetime.  Some experiencers respond to these occurrences with joy and a feeling of blessing and privilege, even eagerly anticipating the next occurrence; while many respond with fear and frustration, sometimes even doubting their own sanity.  In most cases, individuals don’t have complete memories of contact events, but only vague partial recollections or dreams they don’t understand that fill them with confusion and dread.  They may feel that they need help, but not know where to turn or who to turn to.  If they are then faced with skepticism or ridicule from their peers or the condemnation of family, friends or religious authorities, their situation can become even more difficult, and their search for help more desperate.  Experiencer therapy can be very helpful in working through issues arising from contact, but it may not...

Why Me?

It’s likely that thousands of humans have had contact with ETs and don’t remember it or choose not to acknowledge it, but it’s unlikely that every human being has experienced contact.  Experiencers are unique, and regardless of the nature of their contact, most of them want to know why ETs chose them rather than someone else.  Sometimes ETs share their reasons, but in most cases, they don’t, and experiencers are left to wonder.  Do ETs exercise specific criteria for selecting which human to connect with or is it random?  While we don’t know for certain why you were taken and another person wasn’t, there are theories, and we may be able to come close to an answer by looking at the history and characteristics of...

Are all contact experiences like mine?

What's this item about? What makes it interesting? Write a catchy description to grab your audience's attention...No, they’re not.  While the vast number of human-ET contact scenarios are similar in some aspects, no two are exactly the same.  Each human experiencer is an individual who perceives and processes his or her contact through their own brain and personality that are unlike any other brain and personality in the Universe.  Two individuals can go...

Assisting in the Understanding, Processing, and Integration of the Experience.

Some examples of phenomenological/extra-ordinary events are found in the UFO Encounter, the Near Death Experience, Spiritual Crisis/Emergence, Kundulini, and the Shamanic Journey. These experiences range from the ecstatic to the profoundly traumatic, and regardless of where they lie on the spectrum are generally life-shaking or changing. The individual requires a supportive, safe, and non- judgemental environment that allows time and space to recall, process, and integrate as much of the event as possible. This includes helping the person access, retrieve, and work with the physical, cognitive, affective and spiritual aspects of their experience and to reach their own conclusions within an environment of acceptance. Anyone having an experience different enough from the normal, everyday happenings of their culture that makes it difficult to understand, explain, or be believed by self or others generally needs trained help in dealing with the trauma that often follows. The quality of that help can enhance the depth of understanding and integration of the event or add to the confusion, fear, and/or inability to incorporate it into one’s life in a healthy way.

Useful Therapeutic Methods for Facilitating and Assisting in the Recall, Understanding, Processing, and Integration of a UFO Experience while Reducing Accompanying Trauma/Anxiety.

It is assumed here that the counselor has had considerable experience with facilitating extra-ordinary events, especially those of a UFO nature and can readily create a safe, supportive, and compassionate environment for the experiencer to recall, integrate and utilize their learnings from the particular event. Trust and confidentiality are essential ingredients to assist in the full recall and disclosure of the UFO experience.

Imagine something happening to you that you didn't think was possible, that made no sense and that no-one or very few other people believed. Where do you go with that experience? Who do you tell? How do you keep going in a world that often doesn't accept what happened to you, in a world that sometimes suggests you might be just a bit crazy?

Sleep Paralysis - Judy Carroll

The phenomenon scientists label as “sleep paralysis” has been described by many people undergoing encounter experiences with ETs. Having undergone such encounters since early childhood, I still clearly recall the first couple of times it happened and the awful fear and discomfort associated with it, but the reality is it’s simply a safety measure.

The Human Ladder

The Human Ladder is a term used by the Zetas for the cycle of human evolution upwards through the vibrational energy frequencies which comprise the universe. It has 10 “galactic levels” (another Zeta term), which are not physical localities as such, but rather a series of gradually ascending, broadening and deepening levels of self-realization and conscious awareness.

Who are the Grays

“Greys” is just another term for the ETs known as “Zetas”, and is used for the simple reason that many of them are grey in color, but neither term is really correct. A better name for them would be “Guardians”. The name Zeta implies that they’re nothing more than just a species of extraterrestrial form the Zeta Reticuli star system, and although some of them may have experienced lives there, they’re actually way beyond that. “Greys” is just another term for the ETs known as “Zetas”, and is used for the simple reason that many of them are grey in color, but neither term is really correct.

Book Report - Wonders in the Sky - Mark Commerford

In 1969 Jacques Vallee wrote a book titled Passport to Magonia: From Folklore to Flying Saucers. In that book he argued for the objective reality of anomalous aerial phenomena. He pointed out that the UFO related phenomena had certain common characteristics although the reports were also shaped by the beliefs and culture of those reporting the observations.
