The methodology of paranormal archaeology

Pamela Nance

Since 2008, I have conducted field-work at approximately 100 historic sites & properties throughout the mid-Atlantic & southern United States. Over time, a paranormal investigative model was developed based on research methodologies from anthropology, archaeology & history. This is Copyright material

Why Me?

Gwen Farrell

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...

Who are the greys, and why are they here?

Judy Carroll

“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..

Types of phenomenological/ extraordinary experiences that occur in our world

June R. Steiner

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...

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

June R. Steiner

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.

The Human Ladder

Judy Carroll

I have been an experiencer of contact with the extraterrestrial and inter-dimensional beings known popularly as “Greys”, or “Zetas”, since childhood back in the early 1950s. At times this contact has been fully-conscious, and has always been positive, with some wonderfully informative and uplifting messages and teachings being passed on. One of the most important of these was given back in 2001, on what the Zetas refer to as the “Human Ladder”.

Sleep paralysis during et encounters

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.

Should I get therapy for my contact experiences?

Gwen Farrell

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...

Omega 3: Revelation or Revolution --- A Comparative Study of Abductees

Robert B. LeLieuvre, Lester Velez, & Michael Freeman

Ring and Rosing (1990) compared individuals who reported Near-Death experiences with individuals who reported UFO encounters. They also compared the experiential groups with two control groups, one for each type of extraordinary encounter. They found high degrees of similarities both in antecedent life experiences and in consequences of these encounters. Interestingly, they also found such similarities in the control groups for each encounter, although both control groups scored lower on the dimensions studied.

Grandmother told me

Unknown

In 1987 my grandmother told me that she had been watching an interview with Whitley Strieber about his new book “Communion” and she wanted me to go out and buy a copy of the book to read because she felt that it had something to do with me. At first I thought the content of the book must have something to do with the Catholics, because of the title and could not figure out why she would direct me to that system of belief.

Experiencing high strangeness

JUNE STEINER

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?

Discussion of anomalous experiences and the importance of assisting individuals

June R. Steiner

Some examples of extra-ordinary or anomalous events are found in the UFO Encounter, the Near Death Experience, a Spiritual Crisis/Emergence, a Kundalini awakening, 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.
