Through interviews of
abductees or "Experiencers", Mack concentrates on the meaning of the experiences
for humankind rather than trying to prove the reality of the aliens or "ET's"
and the abduction experiences. Our willingness to explore their experiences
expands our view of the universe and our way of knowing and perceiving.
With a shift in
consciousness and the collapse of duality, we will see that we are all connected
to one source and that source is within us. The aliens are our partners in our
connection to Source. Through alien contacts the Experiencers feel that they are
being helped to move to higher levels of consciousness and the mission of both
the Experiencers and the aliens is to help us save the earth.
Abduction: The Next Generation
The encounters with
aliens or "humanoid beings, are accepted in many non western and indigenous
cultures and are part of their myths and stories of their ancestors coming from
the stars in spaceships and creating cultures here on earth. The supernatural
and a direct communication with the Creator have been part of their daily life.
Shamans from these cultures embark on journeys that take them to alternate
spaces and time beyond the material world where they bring back knowledge and
skills that benefit the tribe.
abductees are those who have been taken by alien beings or ETs,
sometimes against their will to spaces where they take part in procedures
that may include the communication of knowledge or strong feelings of love.
Subjects were interviewed using relaxation techniques or modified hypnosis to
access the non-ordinary state of consciousness to help them to release their
powerful emotions from their experiences. For the Experiencers, the subjective
conviction and meaning are real.
Westerners view this
with suspicion as it does not conform to the logical, materialistic view that
can be scientifically verified by traditional physics and experimentation,
(although new postulations and theories in quantum physics are bridging the
What is common in the
encounters with the aliens with this group is the connection to the ecological
crisis that is occurring on earth and the importance of expanding our
consciousness and learning new ways of acquiring knowledge through the subtle or
unseen realms. Through the interviews and narratives of these Experiencers,
patterns have emerged that contain a consistency from one person to another.
Basic Elements of the Phenomenon of
** The person is
home, in their car or outdoors when a bright light, humming sound, and/or
vibrations appear, and a strange craft and humanoid beings. The Experiencers are
taken against their will and are given a variety of medical-like examinations
and procedures, having to do with sexual and reproduction procedures, which may
be very traumatic and may result in hybrid babies. They also may report that a
variety of minor or major conditions have been healed, and that they have also
been transformed by being more intuitively connected to others and to the earth.
** Also common
to many Experiencers is the telepathic transfer of information and images
through the eyes of the aliens, and by being transported to earth scenes of
exquisite beauty or of the apocalyptic destruction of the earth. The aliens may
also convey skills and information of profound and sacred meaning.
** The third
commonality is the expansion of consciousness that does seem to occur from the
traumatic event of the abduction. The experiences seem to change the
consciousness of the Experiencers and they are convinced that they have a life
preserving mission and may develop psychic abilities. They also experience a
collapse of the time/space perception of entering another reality, of possessing
both a human and alien identity, and of feelings of connection with all of
creation. Over time they may see their alien abductors as spirit guides bringing
them closer to the Source or ultimate creative principle.
If the experiencer is
able to surmount the traumatic fear, then the encounters evolve over time into a
relationship between the Experiencers and one or more of the humanoids, reaching
to profound feelings of love, through the eye contact of the depth of the black
eyes of the aliens.
How Do We Study Something Like This?
Originally the earth
sciences regarded strange phenomena as folk tales, yet parapsychology is one
area that challenges the mechanistic view of the universe. The abduction
experiences seem to be of no known visible universe and yet they appeared to
manifest in our world, just as crop circles and apparitions of Mother Mary have
appeared. There is a fear of the unknown and a resistance to knowing as this
challenges the prevailing view of reality and is in conflict with the common
belief that we are the most advanced intelligence in the universe.
We can study these
physical manifestations of evidence through photos, soil samples analysis where
crafts have supposedly landed, and by implants and health problems supposedly
stemming from the abductions but it is difficult to prove that they came from
abductions. There is just enough evidence to convince those who want to believe
and not enough to convince those that don't believe. The only physical evidence
that has been found to support these experiences is that when the Experiencers
are remembering what happened to them, their frontal lobe displays a hyper
arousal pattern on their EEGs similar to advanced meditators.
Each person was
interviewed prior to being included in the study and there were no findings of
personality disorder to account for the experiences. Included in the study were
also indigenous medicine men from different cultures and a photographer who took
pictures of the lights, which were corroborated from others in the area who have
also seen them. The abductees described their experiences as mind shattering,
Mack was convinced of the Experiencers' truthfulness because of the intensity of
the feelings and appropriateness of what they were reporting. They had no
secondary gain and were being as truthful as they were able to be and the words
and body expressions were consistent across different cultures. Also noted is
that memory is subject to distortion since it is reconstructed rather than
retrieved in its original uncontaminated form.
"inter-subjectivity" in the interviews as is used for a patient/therapist
relationship by exploring the meaning through entering their world empathically
and gaining trust, to be with their powerful emotions for healing.
Is it Real; and if so, How?
experience an "ontological shock" when they are not able to deny that what
happened to them is in some way real. It is as if there is a third zone of being
and contains the qualities of the unknown and its terrifying significance. The
acceptance of this "reality" and the feelings of isolation also contributes to
The experience of
time, space and dimensionality is where everything is always present and is a
change in the way we perceive. The Experiencers describe moving to this parallel
universe as moving into higher vibrations and passing through vortices from one
dimension to another, like a birth canal or tunnel full of light. It is a finer
and higher vibration where we are in an altered state of consciousness and it
requires that we transform and evolve to see new things.
are important because of the apparent ability of the beings and their advanced
technology to manifest in our material world. According to some Experiencers,
there is a shift in consciousness that is taking place that brings them closer
to the ultimate creative source. They may develop psychic abilities from
experiences and bodily changes and vibratory sensations from passing through the
solid barriers into the other dimensions.
Light, Energy, Vibration
Light seems to be
used in transporting crafts and abductees and they may feel as if they or their
bodies are light. The vibrations are felt as an awakening of consciousness and a
resonance at the cellular level, as a cleansing or healing and the body feels as
if it is coming apart at the molecular level. Light may be seen as emanating
from a sacred source and may evoke powerful feelings of love.
The Experiencers say
we have the ability to go through matter or the aliens wouldn't be able to take
us through it, that there is an inter changeability of energy and matter. Their
vibrations change so they are in tune with the beings and the energy boosts you
rather than draining you. These vibrations change the cell structure and cause a
shift in consciousness or spiritual awakening.
The light and energy
they experience may not be the same one that physicists measure and study.
Light/energy is fundamental and may relate to chi, prana, kundalini awakening,
and the subtle energies.
Protecting the Earth
The experiences of
the abductees seem to be connected with the ecology crisis and they are being
reprogrammed through changing their vibrations to pass this knowledge on to
others. Experiencers are to be active in protecting the earth, and going through
the changes requires an evolution of consciousness and transition from
material/physical reality to spiritual, through feelings and not just giving
info. They are trying to deepen our empathic connections with earth and feeling
mother earth's pain. The earth changes are a cleansing to restore balance to the
earth so that we can learn to live in cooperation with the simplest to most
The Experiencers may
receive visions of a dying world from the future, or of a beautiful place on
earth. This information is transmitted by a direct telepathic communication from
eye to eye contact, or from libraries on the ship where information is stored.
According to one Experiencer, they are stored in spheres of light in caves.
The ETs live
peacefully among us and with respect. They may be the keepers of our world.
The Hybrid "Project"
Sperm is taken from
males and eggs from females in a forcible manner and an alien component is added
to the fetus. There may be physical marks during the process. The alien babies
still need a human mother for incubation and a young woman will carry the fetus
which is later removed. from her uterus and placed in an incubation chamber. The
Experiencers are encouraged to nurture the hybrid offspring after they are born.
believe the hybrids are a balance between human and alien, and would be used to
repopulate the earth if we destroy it and that this meets needs of aliens and
us. Whether this is happening on a material plane or in another reality of
consciousness is not known.
gynecologists have found pregnancy symptoms and positive pregnancy tests with
some of the Experiences and then later there are no symptoms and no fetus. The
doctors conclude that the fetus was reabsorbed since the woman did not have
physical signs of a spontaneous abortion (fetus was removed by the aliens). The
women report the pregnancy is somewhat different from a "real" pregnancy and
they may have an alien mate in this other "dimension". One Experiencer describes
the babies as being lighter in weigh, very fragile and not as dense as human
In the past, there
were health problems of physiological or anatomical defects in the hybrids and
difficulty in producing emotions, however, it has been changing over the years.
Hybrids seem to need physical touch and breast milk although there is no
evidence that they are of the physical plane. The mating with aliens is done
with vibrations of the cells and the seed is left energetically as it is not a
Although this process
seems intrusive by human standards, it's for a higher purpose and a loving and
powerful connection develops with the aliens during this process. This process
also serves as an elevation of consciousness, which appears to be a state
between waking and sleeping.
Shamans, Symbols, and
experience a world of symbols and archetypal images of great power and the
aliens may present themselves as animals, where the eyes are too large or
pronounced. Common animals that are used are cats, owls, eagles, snakes, spider,
deer, raccoons, or panthers.
The forms the aliens
appear in may also depend on their level of consciousness or on their agenda and
also the level of the Experiencer and what fits into their framework of beliefs.
Some of the beings seem to be more progressive and future oriented while others
seem to be more oriented to the traditions of the past.
The phoenix is also a
common symbol, which stands for death and rebirth by fire, destruction and
renewal and feeds on no living things. The tunnel spaces are felt to be symbols
of a rebirth, (reincarnation) and are ways of teaching about inter dimensional
travel, that we go through these tubes to other planes of reality and that there
is life beyond this life.
To Native Americans,
the power animals are the same as the aliens and show themselves as power
animals or symbols which appear in the sky after native ceremonies. Encounters
are more frequent among shamans from indigenous cultures and they say that these
beings have been around for thousands of years and are coming more frequently
These new alien
beings that shamans are encountering are different from other beings that are
present in their shamanic journeys as they are not able to manage them through
the skills that they learned as shamans. These beings have overwhelming energies
and they appear to have a direct link to divine intelligence that is beyond
forms and symbols.
feel manipulated by the aliens and deceived by their using personal spiritual
beliefs, while others feel that they use symbols for establishing a common
ground to communicate with us. This communication through symbolic images may be
like a hologram projected into the Experiencer's consciousness as a faster way
of communicating and as a preparation for learning. They use the shock of their
impact on us and their intense energies to open our experiences and expand our
boundaries of our familiar world.
The Experiencers feel
the interconnectedness of everything through these encounters, which is similar
to the states of consciousness that shamans enter. If Experiencers, shamans, and
others can integrate these experiences they can move to higher levels of
consciousness. Perhaps aliens are modern day archetypes as we no longer believe
in the Gods.
Bernardo is a shaman
from Brazil, and he received his healing and intuitive powers from the
encounters with the aliens. To his people, the aliens are the great spirit
taking physical form and are the people of the stars, acting as messengers of
God. They are everywhere and nowhere and we may all be descendants from them.
They are coming to us
more frequently because we are destroying the earth and they don't want to see
this happen as they love us. This is the time when their myths tell us that the
condor and the eagle will fly together, with the condor bringing the knowledge
of the south and the eagle bringing the power of the north.
Sequoyah is a Native
American shaman who believes the beings are always here and become visible so
they can interact with us and bring us back to our source by opening ourselves.
They are our teachers, star beings, and he welcomes the teachings. ETs are just
one "face of spirit" and they will not interfere with our free will.
Disease is being out
of harmony with the creator and human destructiveness comes from unresolved pain
and suffering. Sequoyah's mission is one of healing and transformation, teaching
about trust, open mindedness and unconditional love. He has transmitted his own
pain and suffering so that he can serve others and pass on the wisdom of the
peace and love that fills all creation.
Vusumazulu Credo Mutwa
Credo is a shaman
from Africa, who uses his teachings to transcend violence against nature and
separation-ism of cultures. ETs give us knowledge of the real meaning of things
and have influenced our cultures from the beginning and he believes they are our
selfishness are the factors that motivate us and he believes that the ETs are
also motivated by these. He links them to cave drawings of the Australian
Aborigines; to the ancient Sumerian sculptures of figures with large eyes and
bald heads, small noses and chins; and to crop circles and animal mutilations.
The aliens are using
us and harvesting from us, but he isn't sure why. He felt tortured when sperm
was taken from him and feels ambivalent toward them, because he is bitter about
their purpose, but also he received knowledge and healing power from them and
believes they can bring us back to Source.
All three shamans
demonstrate that the phenomenon of abductions is not simply the imaginings of
Westerners. All of them had both a Christian and a native up bringing and they
see pain and suffering as a means to growth.
Trauma and Transformation
Although there are
traumatic aspects associated with the intrusive procedures that the Experiencers
go through, they believe that this is not the most important or central aspect
of the trauma. Instead the "mind shattering" impact brings about ontological
shock, carrying the possibility of profound personal mind-altering
characteristics of the trauma include:

to protect themselves or their loved ones

** Fear of

fear and acknowledging it, they recognize the power of love to encounter the

believe that the aliens are messengers from the Source/creative principle of the
universe, a bridge between the One and us. They may be a kind of energy form
that becomes embodied that helps us to connect to other planes of existence.
The ability of
choosing and remembering unity over duality is part of, or heralds, a collective
shift in consciousness or transcendence, where we become an eternal body of
light in tune with nature and the universe with a feeling of oneness with all,
and we then loose our fear of death.
The Experiencers feel
the pain of separation from home or Source and a longing for reuniting. It is as
if there is a cosmic game where the Creator learns of itself through the
splitting of consciousness.
unconditional love, where we surrender to spirit. There is a resonance within
the body, so that there is a communication with others on an energetic,
spiritual, emotional, physical and cellular level.
The Experiencers have
difficulty in reconciling the different realities of aliens and humans and tend
to move toward jobs in human services or healing, to help others to having a
greater understanding of themselves and others.
Relationships: Contact Through the
We experience our
connection with Source through relationships, and with the aliens, through their
eyes, which were reported as mesmerizing and full of love, an opening to the
infinite and a mirroring of truth for Experiencers. (There was no pupil and no
eye lid to blink). Some Experiencers would see from the perspective of aliens

seemed to be a mutual need.
The Experiencers were
encouraged to form a connection with their alien mates, which may have begun in
childhood as that increased the chances of healthy hybrid children. The aliens
also expressed concern about the increase of genetic deformities and sterility
in humans, which would lead to our dying out because we would be unable to
