I’m awestruck by the magnitude of the Universe and the small and luxurious half Earth has performed within the nice unfolding. I’m compelled to do my small half to work in direction of the environmental safety of Earth and to work in direction of a paradigm of all species, together with people, belonging to Mom Earth moderately than the Earth and all of her species belonging to people. I’m re-committed as a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist to help folks in understanding how their language, beliefs, and tales create and perpetuate their relationships to themselves, to fellow people, to different species, to the Earth, and to the cosmos. And, I discover myself fixated on a press release made in school a number of instances: “By no means underestimate the facility of story”.1
It’s practically unimaginable for me to know the various profound results telling the Universe Story may have on folks whose cosmological tales are outdated and even non-existent. I can solely sit with my expertise of it, being awed by the knowledge shared, feeling the results of “my story” shifting, and witnessing the generally dramatic results the story had on my classmates: tears, anger, awe, pleasure, reverence and style. And but, there is part of the story that from my perspective continues to be untold within the new cosmology class. It’s a story that I’ve heard time and again from researchers who current at conferences and who write books, and a narrative that I’ve heard repeatedly during the last twenty years as a therapist. It’s a part of a narrative that I heard once more in a three- hour session with a fellow Knowledge College pupil on the Saturday after class.
On Thursday in school we have been within the darkness of the cave classroom sitting within the glow of candlelight taking a look at our Milky Method galaxy of stars. The salt “stars ” have been spiraling out to signify our galactic house within the Universe. The trainer defined that the grains of salt on the ground represented solely a small proportion of the particular variety of stars in our Milky Method Galaxy. Through the dialogue a fellow pupil requested the trainer about his opinion of the potential of ET’s and aliens from different locations within the Universe. I keep in mind that como;ogy trainer intimated that it’s unlikely that there are others on the market.
The piece of the Universe story which for me was untold and a big piece of my actuality of the Universe has to do with the non-physical and mystical dimensions of the universe. As a hypnotherapist and transpersonal psychotherapist I’ve been a facilitator and information to many consumers who’ve skilled close to demise experiences (NDEs), out of physique experiences (OBEs) contact with lifeless kin and family members, poltergeist experiences the place issues levitate and fly throughout a room, visitations by angelic beings and being kidnapped by alien beings. A few of my purchasers have aware recollections of those non-ordinary occasions others uncover their experiences whereas doing trauma restoration work in hypnosis and EMDR. In all circumstances, these experiencers, as they’re referred to as, have a really tough time residing with their experiences, particularly as a result of they’re outdoors the fact of the cultural tales adopted as consensual actuality.
By way of my coaching in hypnotherapy and in regrssion remedy, I do know the distinction between main a shopper into “false recollections” through the use of embedded strategies and manipulative language and facilitating a shopper with open-ended questions that permit a shopper to expertise genuine inwardly generated responses. Whereas I work with these purchasers I’m very cautious to make use of expertise that preserve my opinions and beliefs out of the session. I work with the purchasers to allow them to inform their very own tales. Listening to their tales has deeply contributed to the best way I understand the Universe.
Within the space of UFO alien abductions I’ve studied with therapists who focus on working with abductees and I’ve attended many conferences specializing in UFO analysis, crop circles, and alien abduction experiences. Presenters on the conferences embody retired NASA workers, physicists, psychiatrists, experiencers, and researchers. I’ve learn many books written by these professionals and plenty of by individuals who have had direct experiences with aliens. What’s most fascinating is that there are often patterns that emerge. For probably the most half, these patterns correlate with the tales informed to me by my purchasers. I share with you now one in every of these tales. The Universe Story in my world consists of this extra chapter… a chapter which John E. Mack, MD and psychiatrist estimates is written by over three million American individuals who have contact expertise with aliens. 2
I start with my most up-to-date shopper expertise. I’ve permission to inform this particular person’s story so long as his identify is held confidential. I met this particular person in our New Cosmology class. I’ll consult with this particular person as “M to guard his identification and to assist his anonymity. M needed to talk with me after I launched myself in school and shared that I do “ghost busting”. He was intrigued with my introduction and requested me what I meant by ghost busting. A protracted dialog emerged. M had been on the lookout for an individual to work with for the final 5 years. He had an expertise 5 years in the past making a solo 5 hour drive house throughout two southern states the night after New Years. Whereas driving in the dead of night on a abandoned freeway M skilled bazaar climate patterns. There was a repetitive sample of thick fog after which snow flurries after which clear star-filled night time sky. The fog appeared in unusual formations. M seen a fog financial institution that all of a sudden appeared in again of his automotive. Whereas trying on the fog he had a transparent thought, “I’m going to see a UFO”. Then he seen a big silver craft that appeared like a UFO hovering over the automotive whereas the automotive was nonetheless transferring. There have been purple lights pulsating across the round edges across the craft that have been a colour of purple that he had by no means seen earlier than and has by no means been seen since. One of many post-traumatic signs M has had for 5 years is feeling haunted by the purple lights. At the moment, he wears a hoop that has a purple stone which is a colour of purple which reminds him of the lights. He has additionally had different signs of post-traumatic stress for the reason that sighting.
As M drove the automotive underneath the craft there was a deep buzzing sound and a noticeable vibration. He started feeling surprisingly… like his consciousness was being sucked out of his physique. M struggled to remain current and aware and pulled the automotive over to the facet of the street and stopped. He remembered getting out of the automotive to get a greater take a look at the craft. The following thought M had was: “That is loopy. I won’t be protected out of the automotive”. He acquired into the automotive and felt like his reminiscence was being taken away. He rehearsed mentally: “I wish to bear in mind. This actually did occur. It’s January 2 at 8:30PM. I actually noticed a UFO. I wish to bear in mind this”. The craft all of a sudden disappeared and so did the buzzing and the sight of the purple lights. M remembers feeling very odd, shaky and his physique vibrated as he drove off understanding that one thing incredulous had occurred to him. He mentally stored rehearsing that he has seen a UFO, feeling just like the reminiscence was being pulled away from him. He famous the time, date, and the place she was on the street so the expertise may very well be imprinted into his now fuzzy thought course of and reminiscence. M additionally felt that he needed to name somebody to share his expertise. Ought to he name the army, the police, or his family? Afraid that he could be considered loopy he referred to as nobody. M listened to station after station on the radio hoping that there could be a information report that another person had seen the UFO as nicely. There have been no different studies on the information.
Eternally modified, M went again into his day by day life. For days after the incident he skilled the residue of an oily or soiled odor that he related to the sightings. He struggled to resolve and are available to peace with the expertise. He contacted MUFON, a corporation that helps the schooling and analysis of UFOs and experiencers, hoping to search out solutions to his many questions. They informed him to jot down down his expertise. And so they referred him to sources for schooling and assist.
5 years later, M and I met within the New Cosmology class. We determined to do a hypnosis session collectively to assist him get well extra particulars of what occurred in the course of the UFO encounter. At my workplace we labored for 3 hours the Saturday after class. What he found is thoughts blowing and but it explains rather a lot about a few of his childhood experiences and former thought processes and motivations. As I’ve finished 1000’s of instances earlier than, I facilitated my shopper in going right into a relaxed and centered hypnotic state. I invoked his increased Self,…his smart inside information, and requested that the knowledge that he gleaned could be genuine and for his highest good. M responded fantastically to the regression and plenty of particulars to what appear to be repressed recollections emerged.
M remembered being lifted “out of his physique” into the craft. He felt extraordinarily chilly. He noticed a fog round him that he knew protected him from seeing the alien beings. He believed that the fog and the chilly sensation have been related. This fog appeared very very like the fog that he had seen whereas driving. He felt three beings shut by they usually telepathically communicated to him that they might not harm him and that they didn’t wish to frighten him. He noticed what appeared like a management panel on the perimeters of the within of the craft but it surely was not like something he had ever seen earlier than. He additionally noticed by way of home windows that have been concave shapes across the edges of the craft. He noticed the again of the top of a small alien being sitting on the management panel. He felt a strain on his arm and knew that some equipment was hooked up to his arm and that they have been monitoring him. He was shaking from being so chilly and he knew that the beings have been involved about his physique temperature. By escorting him by the arm they took him into one other room within the craft. He grew to become frightened that they have been going to do some form of medical process. They telepathically assured him that he wouldn’t be harmed. The fog continued to encompass him. He continued to really feel uncomfortably chilly. He was astutely conscious of an oily and soiled odor which he believed was coming from the aliens.
He was taken right into a room and guided to take a seat down in a chair. As he sat, his arms have been being held up by one thing hooked up to his wrists. He understood that his physique was being monitored. (At this level within the hypnosis session, M’s arms lifted and floated by his facet for the remainder of the session. They have been suspended in a catatonic and immovable state for forty minutes.) The beings directed him telepathically to look out a window and “informed” him that they have been going to indicate him the place they arrive from. The craft started to vibrate. He felt unimaginable strain in his physique whereas he peered out the window at what appeared like a scene from Star Trek. He was whooshing previous stars by way of house. The craft stopped and he noticed, what they communicated to him, was their galaxy. They referred to as the galaxy Andromeda. They communicated that that they had been with him many instances earlier than and that now he was prepared to recollect the connection. They communicated that he was a descendant from the Andromeda galaxy. They communicated mentally that that there have been going to be many modifications and challenges on Earth and that there could be chaos. His work was to assist folks cope with the modifications and the challenges. Then he skilled the craft vibrating once more and had a way of motion. They have been bringing him again to Earth. They requested him permission to connect one thing to his wrist so that they may very well be in communication with him. He agreed. He felt assured that he had agreed to the reference to these being and to the challenges and work forward. He felt strain on his wrist, however no ache. They knowledgeable him that they might be with him once more.
The shopper described saying goodbye to the beings after which he was again in his automotive feeling his physique buzzing and vibrating. The story continues right here with the shopper rehearsing the day, time and place as he feels the reminiscence, as he described “being sucked out of him”. As he drove he questioned who to name and he listened to the automotive radio for studies of others seeing a UFO within the space.
The hypnosis ends right here. I depend the shopper again into an open-eyed state with strategies that he’ll bear in mind the entire expertise consciously and that he can return to the hypnotic state once more if he must get any extra info. Lastly, after forty minutes of floating up within the air, his fingers and arms return to his facet. M says he’s drained however relieved to know what occurred.
We talked about his expertise. He commented on how in hypnosis info simply got here to him and the way straightforward it was, though he remembered the uncomfortable chilly sensations and the concern of not understanding if he was protected being with the aliens within the craft. He started to make aware connections with the kidnapping expertise and different childhood recollections.
After three hours of working collectively we stated our goodbyes and agreed that the following time he was within the Bay Space we might work collectively once more. I acquired permission from him to share our session on this paper.
Is M’s story or his expertise actual or a metaphor? Was his house ship and ET expertise a bodily or one other dimensional one? Does the universe “home” different beings who’re in touch with us on earth? Are they bodily beings? Can these beings actually journey quicker than mild? In assist of the validity of M’s recollections which have points which are like tens of millions of different experiencer’s recollections, I imagine there most certainly is another person “on the market” or possibly they’re “in right here”.
My private model of Universe Story consists of many components of the magical and non-physical: I imagine in a Multiverse. I’ve been a pupil of parapsychology, UFOlogy and non-ordinary states of consciousness since I used to be sixteen years outdated. I’ve spent 1000’s of hours during the last thirty years with purchasers a lot of whom have had non-ordinary experiences. I’ve had many non-ordinary experiences myself. Whereas the bodily universe is ASTOUNDING in nature, the examine of consciousness and non-physical realities are simply as vital to me as the fabric world. I reside with a paradigm that embraces each the bodily and non-physical. The non-physical consists of mystical states, psychic phenomena, psychokinesis, contact and communication with the lifeless, the expertise of past-lives, the state of consciousness previous to incarnation, and the existence of ETs. I additionally imagine in the potential of time journey and touring quicker than the velocity of sunshine, particularly if touring by way of different dimensions. M acknowledged that he was taken “out of his physique”, which sounds very very like a non-physical OBE expertise.
Why would I imagine a narrative just like the one which M tells me which is inconsistent with the recognized properties of the world? I imagine his story and 1000’s of different tales which have emerged by way of my private experiences as a information to others who wish to extra totally come to phrases with their relationships with non-ordinary experiences: experiences that aren’t restricted to the recognized properties of bodily actuality of the universe however are actual in notion generally by way of waking consciousness, generally by way of non-ordinary states of consciousness or some that appear mystical in nature. For example: the US authorities spent years of analysis on distant viewing. Distant viewing is used for spying and protection. How can an individual go to an atmosphere in a non-physical method and see intimately the environment? There are presently distant viewing courses for the general public out there within the Bay Space taught by Dr. David Moorhouse who did distant viewing for the particular operations within the US Military. With distant viewing folks expertise seeing with psychic eyes and being current in a non-physical physique as they “see.” In distant viewing experiments what the distant viewers see may be verified by senders on website at prearranged targets.
The Universe Story as I expertise it, is multi-dimensional. The bodily evolution of the universe is partnered with the evolution of the non-physical. I expertise that we’re everlasting non secular beings in bodily our bodies… multileveled consciousnesses expressed in bodily and non-physical methods. Because the Universe evolves and expands we, too are evolving and increasing in consciousness. My Universe Story consists of the bodily Universe and non-physical Multiverse, as nicely. My Universe consists of bodily and non-physical beings, the flexibility to supply psychokinesis the place objects appear to defy gravity and levitate and the likelihood that a million Individuals have had contact with alien beings who’re interfacing with folks on Earth. I maintain what Ken Wilber, a modern-day thinker, would consult with as an Integral perspective, a perspective which honors all of it.
In honoring and residing in a Integral actuality I’m actually involved concerning the ecology of Earth, my current house. I do my very small half to honor her and to assist ecologically sound practices: My house and two electrical automobiles run on photo voltaic power. I proceed to help individuals who work in remedy on creating an inside ecology in order that their lives and hearts are centered on love moderately than hate, concern and negativity. The Universe Story helps my dedication to residing extra consciously and in additional concord with all of it.
