The ‘Competing’ Poltergeist, Demonic, UFO And Ultra-Terrestrial Phenomena – It Could Turn Out They Are All One And The Same!

Amityville.

amityville house

Six individuals were shot to death in this house in Amityville, Long Island, said to be the scene of some extremely violent poltergeist activity following the murders.

The very name of the small Long Island, New York, community instantly conjures visions of horror, of a death-dealing psychopath laying waste his parents, two sisters and two brothers with a Marlin rifle. The egregious murders were chronicled in both a bestselling book and a major Hollywood studio movie and have become, pardon the pun, a “household name”: The Amityville Horror.

The convicted killer was Ronald DeFeo, Jr., whom one judge called “the devil incarnate.” DeFeo told varying versions of what happened the night of November 13, 1974, including the claim that he was possessed by an evil spirit and had committed the crime through no free will of his own.

While it is of course impossible to decide the existence or nonexistence of the devil and his demons in a court of law, the evil-spirit-possession argument was entered along with an insanity plea. Ultimately, Defeo received a 25 years to life sentence for each of his victims and remains in prison today.

But is it so easy to simply scoff at Defeo’s claim to have been an unwitting agent for the devil? Could it possibly be that Defeo was telling the truth of what happened?

Amityville and Beyond

This is one of many issues dealt with in the book recently issued by Timothy Green Beckley’s Inner Light – Global Communications publishing house. Entitled “Amityville and Beyond: The Lore of the Poltergeist and Other Petrifying Paranormal Phenomena,” the book breaks relatively new ground in making some overdue correlations between spirit possession, ghosts and even the UFO/alien presence.

This overarching “theory of everything” hypothesis can perhaps be credited originally to the late John A. Keel and was later expounded upon by the very prolific Brad Steiger. But Beckley and his hard working crew of contributors aim to take this theory and definitively tie up the loose ends and connect the many different forms of paranormal activity at play in the world today.

A PARANORMAL RESEARCHER’S EARLY POLTERGEIST ENCOUNTER

Paul Eno

Paul Eno is among the topnotch researchers Beckley has assembled for the writing of   “Amityville and Beyond.” Currently Eno hosts, along with his son Ben, a radio show called “Behind the Paranormal” based in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

“American history is full of poltergeists and nasty and vengeful spirits,” Eno writes. “Much has been written about the Bell Witch that frightened a U.S. president so badly that he fled in the early morning hours from a Tennessee homestead. Furthermore, this book contains the full story of the dreadful Amherst poltergeist, which is just as scary as any similar saga of evil you are likely to hear about from an historical perspective.

“My attitude about such cases,” Eno continues, “is a bit more ‘radical’ than the views of other researchers, who tend to treat such poltergeist outbreaks as either restless spirits gone awry or put them in the general category of a purely psychological manifestation attributable to the witnesses’ psychological state. I see such outbreaks more akin to a crossing of parallel dimensions by a variety of beings often mistaken for the undead – though they seem to have, in many instances, the same attributes as so-called ‘aliens.’ Even cryptids from the darkest realms of our minds have recently been brought into the poltergeist equation.”

Here Eno has very succinctly expressed the overall theme of “Amityville and Beyond,” that aliens and cryptid creatures like Dogmen are cut from the same cloth as “noisy ghosts” and possessive demons. Eno at one time was an assistant to the famed Ed and Lorraine Warren, the husband/wife paranormal researchers whose work has been the subject of the movies “The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2.”

Several bestsellers and over a dozen movies have been made (both “fact” and fiction) involving the unexplainable phenomena inside the Amityville house. Here Ed and Lorraine Warren meet with a reporter as they try to contact the spirit world.

 Eventually, Eno broke away from the Warrens because he found their ecclesiastical approach to poltergeists and their subsequent use of exorcism to rid a person of the “demon in charge” to be too steeped in religious folklore and superstition. Eno says he found that reading jokes from a book did more to dispel the presence of the “devil” than the sprinkling of holy water by a priest.

In November 1974, Eno found himself on Lindley Street in Bridgeport, Connecticut, along with Ed, Lorraine and Father William Charbonneau, and an indeterminate number of police and reporters. And a very frightened family.

Poltergeist victim Marcia gives her pet a big hug while trying to put the events of the past out of her mind.

“The latter consisted of Gerard Goodin and his adopted daughter and only child, Marcia (pronounced Mar-SEE-a),” Eno writes. “Shortly Mom (Laura Goodin) returned from the St. Vincent’s Hospital Emergency Room with her right big toe bandaged. It had been broken by a flying television set. The house itself was a mess. ‘The Thing,as Laura called it, had been tearing pictures, especially religious objects, off the wall all morning. A priest had come to bless the house, apparently to no avail.”

Calling it the best-witnessed poltergeist event in history, Eno says that violent phenomena were witnessed by almost 100 people in the Bridgeport outbreak. Eno was on the scene himself when some of the bizarre incidents transpired.

“I stood in the kitchen,” Eno writes, “with three firefighters on one side of me and three police officers on the other and watched the refrigerator float off the floor, turn right, turn back, then settle gently back to the floor. Late in the evening of that first day, I was sitting at the kitchen table with Lorraine. Also in the kitchen was a huge police officer, Ed Warren and a reporter from WNAB Radio. Lorraine suddenly let out a yelp. I watched as a second-degree burn, with its trademark white blister, appeared on Lorraine’s left hand, between thumb and forefinger. This was all caught on the radio reporter’s tape, which still exists. You can hear a youthful me stating, ‘There’s a blister forming!’”

 TOUCHING THE NEAR-INVISIBLE

At another point during Eno’s visits to the Bridgeport home, he was alone in the house with the Goodins, playing monopoly with Marcia to pass the time and to help her relax.

“Suddenly an acrid smell, like ozone mixed with sulfur, came from the kitchen,” Eno recounts. “Instantly Gerard Goodin was up, dashed into the kitchen and started chanting in Latin! My skin tingled with an electrical charge that I now associate with the electromagnetic ‘branes,’ as physicists call them, presumably the boundaries between parallel worlds.

“A whitish, gauzy cloud began to form in the kitchen,” Eno continues, “and Goodin was back in the living room at once. I was convinced that four entities were ‘arriving’ in the kitchen from Marcia’s adjacent bedroom. They weren’t entirely invisible, and there were four distinct shapes coming from the kitchen in a line. They were each about four and a half feet high and had rounded tops, with no discernible head or shoulders.”

Goodin saw the figures also, and he followed one as it moved from the kitchen. As the mystery entities entered the living room one by one, Laura Goodin started to cry while Marcia clung to Eno for comfort. Then one of the almost-invisible things approached Eno and stopped.

“That’s when I made my mistake,” Eno confesses. “I began to feel angry toward this thing, which at the time I thought was a demon in the classic, theological sense. I was angry because it was obviously trying to get to this child. The whatever-it-was simply fed on the negative energy I was releasing and grew stronger.

“What happened next was the biggest shock I’d experienced in paranormal work up to that time. As the entity moved to get around me and at the girl, I instinctively pushed toward it. It resisted as though it was entirely material. In fact, I felt flesh and bone structure as if this were a solid being. These ‘demons’ were supposed to be spirits!”

Eno says it took him many years to come to grips with the experience, let alone explain it in terms of parallel worlds. He never even reported it to the Warrens, and it was decades before he could write or speak about it.

“While I stood there dazed,” he continues, “the entity got around me and threw Marcia across the living room. She ran back to me, crying. Finally, as the gauzy cloud inundated the whole interior of the house, and as I tired from, I would say today, being drained by this powerful parasite, I ordered everyone outside.”

Bridgeport-Post-1974

Several hundred onlookers crowded in front of the Goodin house after reports of a poltergeist spread through the area.

Although the police had cleared away the crowds and cordoned off both ends of Lindley Street, there were still thousands of onlookers gawking from each end of the block.

“I could hear a voice in the crowd,” Eno writes, “preaching something about all this being a ‘sign of the end.’ These being the days long before cell phones, I had to use a neighbor’s phone to call the Warrens. It took them an hour to get back into the city because of all the traffic caused by this paranormal circus. When they finally arrived at about 9:15 P.M., we all reentered the house. Things were quiet.”

When Eno writes about the creature he pushed against as being almost invisible yet possessing a flesh and bone structure, what manner of being is this? It sounds not unlike the physical-yet-not-physical “bodies” of the familiar gray aliens whose stock in trade is the abduction of chosen subjects for whatever dark reasons are left for us to discover. As Eno so clearly explains, the aliens and demons who cross between dimensions may be one and the same entity but are given different names in scripture and folklore that vary according to who encounters the strange interlopers.

VOICES FROM THE DEVIL MADE THEM DO IT

poltergeistdrummer

Brad Steiger writes that in some cases, there could be a connection between demonic possession and poltergeist activity. (Graphic – The Demon Drummer of Tedworth, 1662)

While the saying is popularly true that “we all have our personal demons,” in some cases the demons can achieve total control of a hapless individual. In a chapter of “Amityville and Beyond,” the celebrated Brad Steiger makes a case for genuine demonic possession being at the root of many a murder. He also talks about the demon/alien connection.

“There are many among us,” Steiger writes, “who have every reason to accept the Ultra-Terrestrials as demonic, akin to the poltergeists that plague our darkest nightmares and create havoc all around those they decide to target. If humankind is indeed interacting with an extraterrestrial species then those UFOnauts, the ‘Grays,’ as they are currently nicknamed, may be representatives of technologically superior reptilian or amphibian humanoids.

“These serpent people have been interacting with Earth for millions of years,” Steiger continues, “either appearing in cycles of programmed visitations or steadily monitoring our species’ technological and societal development from underground or undersea bases. At some point in their many centuries long interaction, some Ultra-Terrestrial entities began to exploit humankind in foul, lascivious and wicked ways. Whether they be extraterrestrial or multidimensional in origin, they have become known to those unfortunate humans with whom they have interacted as evil, cruel and demonic beings.”

Steiger says the reader can easily see that Ronald DeFeo, Jr., was not alone. Steiger provides a frightening list of killers who claimed they were driven by evil “voices” to commit their crimes.

For example: In January 1990, authorities searching an Ohio farm commune found the slain bodies of a family of five – all victims of human sacrifice. Jeffrey Lunden, a self-declared prophet of a new religion, had decreed the sacrifices necessary to persuade the “forces” to present Lunden’s cult with a magic golden sword.

Another case: Daniel Rakowitz, suffering under religious delusions programmed by “voices” who called him the messiah and told him to form a new satanic religion, sacrificed his girlfriend in September 1989 to insure his messiah-ship.

One particularly gruesome case happened in 2000. Prosecutors charged a man in Great Falls, Montana, with killing a ten-year-old boy, butchering him, eating his flesh in specially prepared dishes, then feeding the remains to his unsuspecting neighbors. A psychiatric evaluation indicated demonic fantasies about cannibalism and the taste of human flesh. Encrypted writings found in the suspect’s home revealed a list of recipes involving the bodies of small children.

“The terrible power which drives and compels those obsessed with sacrificial murders,” Steiger writes, “is something so much more insidiously evil and complex than can be created by the distortion of creeds, ecclesiasticisms or belief structures. The monstrous voices that command men and women to kill others are not those of mortals. Those who have fallen under the deadly spell of the possessing Ultra-terrestrial-multidimensional entities claim to have been controlled by something outside of themselves – usually personified as Satan or one of his demons.”

 AND THEN THE TERROR SPOKE . . .

poltergeistactivity

Poltergeist activity displays a wide range of unusual events. Ranging from strange knocks and bangs on the walls, household items being thrown around, and mysterious voices demanding attention.

Evil speaking voices are also dealt with in a chapter by Tim R. Swartz called “When the Poltergeist Finds Its Voice.”

“It can be terrifying enough,” Swartz writes, “when a poltergeist makes its appearance in a household. Rocks thrown about, strange bangs on the walls, moving furniture, items disappearing and then reappearing – this is enough to set anyone on edge. However, when a poltergeist finds its voice and starts to talk, you know that events have decidedly taken a turn for the worse.

“Poltergeist activity has been recorded throughout history,” Swartz goes on, “and is probably the most prolific of all supernatural events. A poltergeist is extremely aware of its surroundings and will often quickly respond to suggestions by observers and other external stimuli. This shows that there is some kind of ‘intelligence’ behind its pranks and not just some random psychokinesis (PK). This intelligence, along with an ability to communicate, will manifest in a myriad of ways. Pieces of paper with strange messages appear; writing on the walls; children’s toys will be arranged to make words; and, perhaps the most shocking, they will sometimes start to speak out loud.”

According to Swartz, when a poltergeist achieves speech, it generally starts as animal-like growls and whispers that slowly evolve into discernible words. Most poltergeists never reach this stage in their development, but, once they do, a clear “personality” emerges from what were previously just random events.

Swartz recounts some case histories in the annals of poltergeist hauntings in which the intruding spirit spoke to its victims.

BellHouse

The Bell homestead. From Authenticated History of the Bell Witch, M.V. Ingram, 1894.

The 1817 case of the “Bell Witch,” the name for the poltergeist who took up residence among a Tennessee farming family headed by John Bell, Sr., is an interesting example. “The Witch” was extremely talkative and could imitate the voices of people from the area.

“The poltergeist was said to speak at a nerve-wracking pitch when displeased,” Swartz reports, “while at other times it sang and talked in low musical tones. In one instance, it was alleged to have repeated, verbatim, sermons administered by two preachers, occurring at separate locations, that took place simultaneously. The sermons recited by the witch were verified by people attending the churches as being identical in voice, tone, inflection and content. The poltergeist was even known to attend church and sing along with the congregation, using the most beautiful voice anyone had ever heard.”

gefmongoose

On one occasion Gef agreed to allow Voirrey to take his picture. The subsequent photographs did little to convince skeptics on the reality of the talking mongoose.

Stories of a talking mongoose named Gef, who bedeviled an Irish family in the 1930s, as well as the tale of a Spanish family who heard maniacal laughter and voices emanating from their kitchen stove, help to round out Swartz’s examination of real-life incidents of “talking” spirits.

He also touches on the Middle Eastern folklore and Islamic theology dealing with the “djinn,” or genies, who can take possession of buildings or locations and torment any person who goes to live there. The djinn can levitate and cause objects to disappear as well as take any physical form they want – humans, animals and anything else. They can mimic the voices of deceased humans, claiming to be spirits or Satan. They enjoy playing tricks and frightening people. In fact, they can feel strong emotions such as fear or grief and gain energy from those powerful feelings.

“Like humans,” Swartz writes, “the djinn have distinct personalities. There are those who are of low intelligence, quick to anger and fond of playing tricks. Others have a superior intellect and act more along the lines of guardian angels rather than tricksters.”

WHEN AN ULTRA-TERRESTRIAL APPEARED IN A UFO WITNESS’ HOME

Tim-Beckley-Weird

Like his friend, the late John A. Keel, researcher/publisher Tim Beckley (seen here in an off-screen moment during a taping of the syndicated William Shatner’s “Weird Or What?” show) believes there is a readily apparent similarity between poltergeist hauntings and UFO landing and abduction reports.

Timothy Beckley has been marching to the sound of a “different drummer” for more than half a century. He rightly admits that when it comes to most UFO cases he has “been there, seen it and investigated it.”  He started out publishing a ten-page mimeographed newsletter when he was but 15, and over the decades has edited/published such widely circulated zines as “UFO Review” and “UFO Universe,” both sold on newsstands worldwide. And while he now claims to be “semi-retired,” Beckley’s prestigious para-physical publishing house still grinds out a couple of new titles every month.

“More and more, it became clear that there is only a thin line that separates what is known as poltergeist phenomena and events of a UFO nature,” Beckley remarked. “I always say what happens in a séance room or a haunted house is very similar to what you can expect to find at a UFO landing site or in the home of a UFO percipient.”

Beckley says that for a period of several months during the summer of 1982, members of a family he knew quite well were at the center of some unexplainable events which were triggered by the appearance of a circular device – a UFO – that was seen hovering across the street from their premises. Shortly thereafter an eerie presence could be felt as if some “adopted entity” had joined the family.

Voices were heard in the basement and at the bottom of a well. Children saw a silver suited being on the perimeter of their property and a shadowy figure was seen to walk behind the refrigerator and disappear into the wall.

The lady of the house goes on to describe in detail some of the bizarre incidents which took place and which tended to drive everyone “crazy.”

Strange voices were heard, objects disappeared and were teleported about, and one of those involved said someone kept pushing up against the mattress she was sleeping on at night. (Art by Carol Ann Rodgriguez)

“From time to time,” the woman told Beckley, “it would feel like someone would come into the bedroom at night and would push against the bottom of my mattress. Sometimes I would be overcome by the feeling that I wasn’t alone, although nobody was physically in the room with me. One time, I was lying on my left side facing the wall and I felt a poke like someone’s finger jabbing into my shoulder.

“The business with the mattress happened almost every night. In addition, a photograph of my youngest son, aged two, kept falling from the wall This happened so frequently that finally I decided to leave it down where it couldn’t break.

“One night, I got bumped on the mattress and I thought that someone was trying to speak to me. I sat up in bed and said, ‘What did you say?’ I was able to hear the sound of someone talking but was unable to distinguish any words.

“Later, when my daughter arrived home, I told her about the voices and she said she’d heard them a few times as well. Actually, she seemed truly petrified. It seems that they had been bothering her for a while, but she was afraid to mention it to anyone for fear we would all think she was crazy. She said the voices would call her by name, but even though I was in her company when this happened, I could never hear anything.

“Things really got out of hand the day before Labor Day. Everybody had gone out to see the fireworks display put on by our neighborhood carnival and I was sitting around the kitchen getting the food ready for the next day when I heard a sound coming from the basement. It was the sound of someone walking across a board that had been placed at the bottom of the stairs to cover an open sewer pipe. When you step on it, it makes a little plunking sound, and someone was going back and forth across it repeatedly and it was driving me crazy.

“Not wanting to get hysterical and trying to brush the matter aside, I kind of laughed and thought, ‘Oh, I’ve got company.’ It was like a feeling of not being alone. Now and then, I got a little upset because it plunked a little too loud. I would stand out on the porch for a little while just to clear my head and then go back into the house.

“When the family got back from the fireworks display, I told them what had happened and that I had this strange feeling that I wasn’t alone. When I explained what had happened to the boards, my daughter replied they had been hearing that all day long but didn’t want to say anything about it. Her husband and my oldest son also heard it. My daughter’s husband even got up a couple of times to see if it was the kids fooling around and there was nobody there. He said, ‘It would sound just like someone was walking around down there and then when you went to look, you couldn’t find anything.’

“Our ‘friend’ seems to like my air conditioner. One night the dogs were barking out back and there was nothing outside. I shut off the air conditioner in order to go and check on the dogs. When we were below my bedroom window, my husband said, ‘The air conditioner isn’t on.’

“I said, ‘No, I shut it off so I could hear the dogs better.’

“So, we were out back of the house trying to figure out what was wrong with Max. He had plenty of water and food. It wasn’t that. He wasn’t nervous, like he was that other time. He wasn’t shaking. The dog was upset about something in the air.

“All of a sudden, my husband turned and said, ‘What was that?’

“I asked him, ‘What’s what?’

“He said, ‘The air conditioner just went on. Then it went off again. But just as we went by the window, it went on again.’ There is no way to shut it off and turn it on without pushing the buttons. When I had shut it off, it was on ‘Off.’ When we went back indoors it was ‘On.’

“I said, ‘Well, thank you, whoever you are. It is hot in there.’

“My husband said, ‘I know that thing was off. I know that thing went on and off a couple of times.’

“I said, ‘I know, it’s George.’

“He said, ‘Well, tell your friend to leave. I don’t want him hanging around here.’

“I said, ‘You tell him to leave.’ We went to bed and there wasn’t any more trouble that night.”

THE OUTER LIMITS OF ‘LITERARY’ FEAR

There is much more to be found in “Amityville and Beyond,” including chapters from a multitude of contributors as well as dozens of spooky illustrations. One can read about the night author and radio show host Joshua Warren spent in “America’s Most Haunted Bedroom;” paranormal investigator Michele Lowe bears heart-pounding witness to the spirits left behind in the aftermath of a murder-suicide; the rise of interest in poltergeist and paranormal lore that was part of the counterculture of the 1960s; the notion of cryptid creatures like the Dogmen, as studied by Pennsylvania researcher Butch Witkowski, as being physical embodiment’s of demonic extraterrestrials – the list goes on.

At the very least, “Amityville and Beyond: The Lore of the Poltergeist and Other Petrifying Paranormal Phenomena” delivers on the promise of its title and provides a great many scary, scary stories. Whether this nonstop horror show could all be a matter of real-world events is up to the reader, but you will in any case get a generous serving of fascinating tales of what happens when evil takes control and some among us mere mortals can only be its unhappy prey.

UNSCRAMBLING THE MYSTIQUE AND INSCRUTABLE CHARACTER OF AN UNDERCOVER ALIEN HUNTER AND WHISTLEBLOWER

By Sean Casteel

commanderxfiles

Many mysteries are revealed in the new version of the “The Commander X Files – Updated: Identifying the Real ‘Commander X’ Alien Hunter.”

Most discussions of Commander X begin with this question. Who the heck is he REALLY?

This issue is grappled with in the newly released “The Commander X Files – Updated – Identifying the Real Commander X.”

In this most recent offering of Commander X’s prolific works – as published by Timothy Green Beckley’s Inner Light-Global Communications publishing house – the cover teases that the book will identify the “real” Commander X.

Which is true up to a point. But revealing the literal, physical, human identity of Commander X would endanger not only Commander X himself but also many of the people with whom he works as he labors to bring the truth of so many government/alien conspiracies to the attention of that portion of the reading public who are receptive to his general message. The truth can set you free, but it can also lead to imprisonment or assassination, a familiar threat to those who conceal their identities and sources of information as a necessary requisite to doing business.

AN IMPORTANT REVELATION

commanderx

Who is the mysterious military operative identified only as “Commander X” in a series of pop culture UFO books?

But Commander X has sanctioned that a little information about his working methods can be uncovered at last – the fact that his writing was often corrected and made more readable by the late Jim Keith, a conspiracy theorist whose story is also a fascinating one in itself.

As Beckley writes in his introduction to “The Commander X Files – Updated,” it’s all gotten a little complicated over the years. Still, Beckley does offer some tidbits he hopes readers will find satisfying.

“I am going to tell you something,” Beckley writes, “that I have never revealed to anyone else before. Some of the books by Commander X were not written in their entirety by him. He had help.”

Beckley first addresses the accusation that Commander X is just another disinformation agent. He defends the Commander by saying that the secretive figure had always been aboveboard and honest in his dealings with Beckley himself, which is all Beckley can really know.

“True, I have never met him in the flesh,” Beckley continues, “but in the ‘old days’ we did exchange correspondence and a couple of telephone calls. I think if you have been an avid reader of the Commander X books, you will agree that he has made some striking revelations. He says he worked at Area 51. That he knows about the underground base at Dulce. Was involved in the government’s teleportation program.”

WRITING ON THE FLY ISN’T EASY

But Commander X was continually on the run from his enemies, whether they were part of the international cabal or the aliens themselves.

“Often he would submit a few pages at a time,” Beckley explains, “ramble on a bit and not complete a project he had started on in all earnest. Even as a small publisher, we had to adhere to some sort of schedule for the release of a new title. In order for us to fit into a specific time slot, we had to get the good Commander a bit of literary ‘help.’ We had to find someone who could polish up a manuscript and fill in some of the blanks. Nothing drastic, mind you, but you still can’t put out a book that is full of incomplete thoughts and not rendered in a professional manner.”

So Beckley turned to the aforementioned Jim Keith, a writer who was quickly establishing himself as a prominent conspiracy theorist.

jim keith

Jim Keith

“If you have ever been into alternative topics such as black ops, UFOs and mind control, you probably have a number of Jim’s books close at hand,” Beckley writes. “His most important works include ‘Saucers of the Illuminati,’ ‘Mind Control, World Control,’ ‘Casebook of the Men in Black,’ ‘Black Helicopters Over America,’ and ‘OK-Bomb!’ Unfortunately, tragedy struck at an early age, when Jim Keith passed away suddenly – some say under mysterious circumstances.”

Beckley draws on writer Peter Robbins to fill in some of the background. “Jim was truly a conspiracist’s conspiracist,” Robbins writes.

“He spoke at numerous conferences about conspiracies and contributed many articles to journals and magazines. He did not subscribe to the extraterrestrial theory of UFOs and viewed the phenomena as human in origin. He felt that the craft involved were entirely the product of highly classified governmental programs, employing advanced technology.”

In September 1999, Jim was attending “Burning Man,” a weeklong arts festival held annually in Black Rock, Nevada, when he broke his knee in a fall from a stage. He underwent emergency surgery in Reno, Nevada, where he resided. During the operation, a blood clot was released and entered his lung, which was the official cause of his death.

“It’s particularly tempting,” Robbins writes, “to yell murder when someone so dedicated to conspiratorial thinking, and to bringing government abuses and cover-ups to the attention of the public, dies under such freaky circumstances. If the blood clot was not the cause of his death, as some still maintain, I doubt if we will ever learn what in fact it was.”

WAS JIM KEITH THE ‘REAL’ COMMANDER X?

Beckley resumes the narrative by writing: “Interestingly enough, at about the same time as Jim Keith’s passing – whatever the cause might have been – a ‘wild rumor’ started to circulate. It was being said that Keith was in reality the mysterious Commander X. These rumors were denied by Keith himself and ‘verified’ by at least one ‘close friend’ who thought Jim had taken him into his confidence. Actually, Jim was not lying or covering up for Commander X or, for that matter, our publishing company. He was NOT Commander X. There was – and still is, somewhere out there – an actual Commander X!”

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE GOOD COMMANDER

Having dealt with these weighty facts and suspicions, “The Commander X Files – Updated” moves on to the writings of Commander X – as told to Jim Keith.

helicopters cash landium

Unmarked choppers upon occasion have been seen in association with unidentified flying objects. Particularly well known is their connection to the Cash-Landrum case in 1980s Texas.

The first chapter, called “Escape to Abduction,” is a thrilling opener as it recounts the story of Commander X being warned by a phone call from a friend in the intelligence community that the Commander’s cover had been blown and he should “run like hell.” As he flees his pursuers (whom he calls “hired murderers who had been hunting me for years, ever since my defection”), he philosophizes that, “I had given it my best shot, and that was all I could do. I had done my best to warn the people of the world about the Secret Government and the gray aliens and their plans, and if I didn’t last another day, it would have all been worth it.”

Commander X arrives at a grassy overlook at the shoreline of the Pacific Ocean. Thinking he has managed to conceal himself from the human element, he is struck by the sight of two unmarked black helicopters in “whisper mode” who obviously know where he is. They are followed quickly by the appearance of an alien craft, which he calls “truly beautiful in a purely artistic way.” The craft shoots a cool white beam of light from its underside that engulfs the Commander in the most intense fear he has ever felt.

“I was about to say that that was when I blacked out, but the term isn’t appropriate,” he writes. “I whited out. I knew no more.”

A typical day in the life for Commander X? It would be a little daunting, to say the least, if that was the case. But the fact of the black helicopters working in concert with an alien ship does serve to illustrate one of Commander X’s primary operating assumptions.

“The most horrifying truth that ever confronts a researcher into UFOs and aliens,” he writes, “is the realization that, at a certain point, forces within the U.S. government capitulated to and, at least to a certain degree, joined forces with the aliens in their goal to dominate the Earth.”

A REVEALING CLANDESTINE CONVERSATION

area 51 restricted area

Beware! You have been warned! Try to cross this barrier at Area 51 and you will be arrested – or possibly far worse.

As an example of the treachery of the gray aliens, Commander X presents a short Q and A with a woman he calls “Miss N,” who was employed as an executive secretary at what is known as the A.T.C. (the Alien Technology Center) at an Air Force base the Commander declines to name. The A.T.C. was a secret “sub-facility” that has been in operation since the 1960s.

“It had been believed until recently,” Commander X writes, “that this area of [deleted] was under the control of the human forces and engaged in researches positive to human aspirations, but subsequent events showed that this had been a ruse fostered by the gray aliens.”

area 51 game

Area 51 has become part of America’s pop culture and has even been incorporated into slick games for adults.

The Commander explains that he often travels incognito to UFO conferences around the country in order to chat with the attendees. Along with the gawkers, the debunkers, and the merely curious, he says one also meets individuals with a real knowledge of the planetary situation.

One such savvy attendee was the aforementioned Miss N, whom Commander X calls “articulate” and “perfectly rational.” He first met her at a UFO convention and she continues to be one of his informants.

“It was apparent to me after speaking with Miss N for a brief while,” he writes, “and after having her pull me aside to see the array of government identification cards which she carried in her wallet, that she knew about what she spoke. While she was terrified and was looking for someone to ease her mind about what she had witnessed at [deleted], she was also privy to an otherwise unreported instance of alien betrayal by the higher-ups in the military.”

Here are portions of Commander X’s dialogue with Miss N, as transcribed from an audio recording:

X. You alluded to a “shutdown” and a “cover-up” at the A.T.C. portion of the base in 1991? I hadn’t heard about that. Could you give me some additional details?

Miss N: I’m surprised you didn’t hear about it considering your connections to the military. I won’t pretend I’m not scared telling you about all of this. They came in, came right into the lab area . . .

X. Who came in? Military intelligence?

Miss N: It was totally transparent what happened. My God, who do they think they are? The talk had been going around that the scientists in Section G, which supposedly dealt with antigravity research from what I heard, had made a big breakthrough. We thought that was supposed to be the purpose of the center, to actually make scientific discoveries, so I guess nobody was trying to hide what they heard. But that wasn’t it at all. It was only supposed to look like that.

X. I’m not quite following you. What happened?

Miss N: Really, I can’t believe that you didn’t hear about this. I heard it was a directive, straight from the grays, that was issued to the brass at the A.T.C. An ultimatum, I guess. They terminated the scientists in Section G and they tried to cover it up by . . .

X. Terminated? Do you mean . . .

greys

Many abductees have remembered under hypnosis that they were “manhandled” while being held captive by a group of ultra-terrestrials identified as the Grays.

Miss N: You know as well as I do that I don’t mean “fired from their job.” I mean they killed them, they killed four scientists in the A.T.C. and they tried to cover it up pretending it was radiation poisoning. They sent the hit team into the compound . . .

X. Humans?

Miss N: Yes, I’m sorry to say it was humans who did the job. They came into the lab dressed in radiation suits, and the alarms were going off. I heard the shots, even though they used silencers. I heard the shouts and the crashing of equipment. It didn’t last long, maybe three minutes total. I think you understand as well as I do what the situation is. The research is a total fraud, a cover-up, and they’re keeping the scientists pretty much tethered, giving them little bits and pieces of information and technology. They know that, if we know what they know, then we can fight them, maybe even win. God help me, I hope no one saw me talking to you.

The foregoing conversation between Commander X and Miss N puts in a nutshell so much of what Commander X is all about. There is the collusion between the secret government and the hostile gray aliens, aliens who sometimes masquerade as benefactors to mankind. There is the cloak-and-dagger meeting with an informant who fears being murdered even for speaking in secret. There is an “ear witness” to an unlawful execution of government scientists who somehow drew the anger of the gray aliens by going too far with a technological breakthrough, a breakthrough they had been told they were supposed to pursue.

“I agree with Miss N’s assessment that the alien forces will stop at nothing,” Commander X writes, “to keep humanity in the dark about advanced technology, while at the same time pretending to offer it to us.”

HUMAN ROBOTS AND MUTILATED CATTLE

treaty cover small

Commander X, in his recently published book on the subject, has joined other researchers claiming that the U.S. signed a treaty with a group of aliens back in the 1950s which enabled them to abduct humans in exchange for what we are told was a superior technology.

In another recent offering from Inner Light-Global Communications, entitled “America’s Top Secret Treaty with Alien Life Forms,” Commander X discusses similar themes of a secret branch of the government’s longtime conspiracy with the gray intruders.

“Primarily, what the government doesn’t want people to know,” he writes, “is that an actual agreement was drawn up between the military and the group which John Lear and others have identified as the EBEs (short for Extraterrestrial Biological Entities). The key figures taking part in this scenario had no reason to suspect anything but the best from what they had taken into their confidence. The EBEs said they wanted to take a few humans for examination, that they had actually seeded the planet at the time of creation, eons ago, and simply wanted to keep track of their scientific experiment. For being allowed the privilege of abducting members of the human race on a limited basis, they were seemingly willing to give us scientific data which would greatly enhance our technology.”

According to Commander X, what the government didn’t realize was that the aliens planned to abduct tens of thousands of people, plant monitoring devices in the abductees’ brains, and program them with specific series of responses to direct commands. In other words, the aliens were going to take a much bigger bite out of the human population than what was agreed to and then take complete control of their victims’ unsuspecting minds.

“The EBEs – also behind our backs – began to mutilate cows and other animals,” Commander X writes, “because they wished to use their tissues to create a genetically advanced race of flesh and blood robots. When the government realized what the EBEs had in mind, and wanted to go back on their agreement, the aliens took over several of the bases where they had already installed underground laboratories.”

THE PURPOSE AT HAND

treaty alien_agreement-1

Commander X says he now ponders whether the signing of a treaty with the EBEs was a positive choice for the people of Earth.

As someone with close military ties, Commander X says he is in a privileged position to know what is going on. He feels it is his patriotic duty to reveal all he knows regardless of the consequences.

“This conspiracy has gone on far too long,” he writes, “and it surely would continue were it not for the a few brave souls who have literally risked their very lives to leak the story of the century to a public that has been left in ‘blissful ignorance.’ I can testify to the fact that this conspiracy leads right up to the front gate of the White House and behind the walls of the Kremlin; for it is a secret that all the major world powers share, but continue to keep to themselves, for fear of what the repercussions of their actions and the eventual outcome of the situation may be.”

One would certainly hope to be among the “few brave souls” Commander X refers to and do one’s part to help to break the leash the grays and their government allies hold us to heel with, to use an unfortunate “dog” metaphor. In taking up the struggle, the reader should begin by familiarizing oneself with the books of Commander X, which are published to the potential peril of many in the fields of UFO and conspiracy research. Let us hope that there is still time to undo the damage that has already been done.

Was Inventor Nikola Tesla a UFO Contactee?

By Sean Casteel

Nikola Tesla

In the more than 70 years since his death, Nikola Tesla has never ceased to be a fascinating, mysterious figure dwelling somewhere outside the borders of history as it is understood by the unseeing masses. While we as a 21st century civilization continue to reap the benefits of his outsized genius, Tesla has yet to be given the recognition he deserves as a major architect of the relatively technologically comfortable age we live in.

Still, there are those of us who do give Tesla his due, belatedly but sincerely. This article will deal with an aspect of Tesla’s genius that has gotten short shrift even from those of us who revere his name: UFO contact.

And that theory is nowhere better espoused than in “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla” by Tim R. Swartz. Swartz’s bestselling classic has recently been updated and reissued by Global Communications and is worth a new look whether you’ve read the first edition or not.

Tim R. Swartz

I interviewed Tim Swartz a few years ago for one of Tim Beckley’s now defunct newsstand magazines, and Swartz laid out some historical background of Tesla’s earliest beginnings.

“Tesla was born in Yugoslavia,” Swartz said, “in what is now Croatia, at midnight between July 9 and July 10 in 1856. He had that spark of genius right from the very beginning. There are a couple of people, I think, throughout our history, that you could classify as a ‘super genius.’ That’s the best word I can think of. Most people would agree that Einstein was one of our greatest geniuses. Maybe Leonardo da Vinci. And Nikola Tesla should fit right up there with those guys, because he just seemed to have this mind that was open to the universe.

“I suppose that’s a rather esoteric way of looking at it,” he continued, “but he had the ability to visualize his ideas to such a point that he could actually ‘see’ what he was visualizing in three dimensions. As he put it, ‘It seemed to hang in the air right in front of my eyes.’”

Nowadays, Tesla is best known to the general public as the inventor of the AC motor.

“Our entire system of electricity,” Swartz explained, “works with AC current. In Tesla’s day, Thomas Edison had come up with a system to deliver electricity to houses and buildings based on the DC current, direct currents. DC current works fine, but it can’t be sent over any great distance. Probably every half mile to a mile you would have to have a station that would step the power back up again and send it on for another half a mile or so. A very inefficient system, and really only good for close areas, like New York City. That’s where Edison had initially done some wiring.”

Tesla, by contrast, created a motor based on alternating current, which can travel hundreds of miles before it has to be retransmitted. This was a revolution for its time. Tesla came up with a working version of an AC motor and was the first to build, at Niagara Falls, a massive power generating station that supplied electricity to New York City.

“It was cheap, clean, efficient, and it actually worked,” Swartz said. “That’s probably Tesla’s greatest claim to fame.”

Tesla followed up that achievement by inventing radio. Though popularly credit for radio is given to Marconi, the Supreme Court declared some years after Tesla had died that Tesla’s patented radio devices had preceded Marconi’s and that Tesla is officially the father of radio. Tesla also created the first remote control device, which he demonstrated by directing a small battery-powered toy boat through various maneuvers on a lake as newspaper reporters looked on. He also designed a torpedo for use in warfare that was remotely controlled.

It was while working on a radio receiver designed to monitor thunderstorms that Tesla stumbled onto something quite extraordinary.

“Tesla thought that possibly he had received a radio signal from outer space,” Swartz said, “that could conceivably be from extraterrestrials. Which is a pretty amazing concept for his time. People in that era speculated that there could be life on Mars, but nobody suggested it too seriously. Tesla was conducting experiments in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 1899, with a pretty good-sized radio receiver, because he was fascinated by the way lightning played in thunderstorms. He was trying to come up with a way to harness the power from thunderstorms.

“And one evening,” Swartz continued, “he received what he called ‘regular signals.’ You know, like beep, beep, beep. Not the usual static you hear from thunderstorms and lightning. He wondered at the time if he wasn’t listening to ‘one planet greeting another,’ as he put it. From that point on, it became somewhat of an obsession of his, to build better and better radio receivers to try to see if he could repeat what he heard. He got to the point where he claimed that he was actually receiving voice transmissions. He said it sounded just like people talking back and forth to each other. He made notes saying that he was actually hearing intelligent beings from another planet talking to each other, although he didn’t know what language they were speaking. But he still felt he understood them.”

An interesting point that should be made here is that at the time Tesla was hearing these alien voices through his primitive radio equipment, 1899, the country had just experienced the great Airship Wave of the late 1800s. No less a UFO expert than researcher and historian Dr. David Jacobs believes that is when true UFO contact first began, in the skies over America, when people familiar only with hot air balloons as real life flying devices began to see metal ships that flew over their homes and farmland, abducting the occasional cow and speaking to bewildered farmers in languages beyond their understanding. While one hesitates to abandon the more familiar Ancient Astronauts theory that says alien contact began with mankind’s birth in prehistoric times, Jacobs’ belief does tend to support what Tesla claims happened to him.

This also begs the question: Did aliens have some kind of part in leading Tesla to create what he did? It is argued in the controversial book “The Day After Roswell,” by the late Colonel Philip Corso and his collaborator Bill Birnes, that recovered alien technology was reverse-engineered and used to lay the groundwork for numerous inventions, including fiber optics and much else in the way of technology we take for granted today. One sometimes wonders if the aliens more likely are implanting the seeds for, or even directly “inspiring,” through some process of implanted thoughts, some of the marvels of the current age.
lostjournalsfront3
In any case, there is likely some kind of overlap here between Tesla’s voice contact and the inventions that came later, though it is of course impossible to prove. Tesla felt the voices were slowly preparing mankind for conquest and domination. In “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla,” Swartz goes on to recount the spine-tingling chronology of Tesla’s battle with these aliens he believed to be an enemy race, all set against a background of industrial espionage and governmental secrecy that would make for a crackerjack science fiction tale were it not for the fact that the events are alleged to be completely real.

Tesla later went public with his claim that he was receiving extraterrestrial voice transmissions and was subjected to the usual humiliating ridicule that greets UFO witnesses today when they try to speak openly of their experiences. But he remained firm in his conviction that the voices were genuine and posed a terrifying threat to life on Earth as we know it.

Global Communications publisher Tim Beckley provided more input on the connection between Tesla and UFOs.

“There are many who believe,” Beckley said, “that Tesla was actually a ‘star child’ of sorts, that he was born on another planet and left on the doorstep of his adoptive parents. This speculative theory was first offered in a long out-of-print book by Margaret Storm and a later book by our own Commander X titled ‘Nikola Tesla: Free Energy and the White Dove.’

“The idea that Tesla was born off-planet,” Beckley continued, “seems to have originated with a gentleman named Otis T. Carr. A Baltimore MD and inventor, Carr claims that he worked side-by-side with Tesla for years and that he discovered bits and pieces of the great inventor’s life that no one else knew about, including the fact that Tesla wasn’t originally from ‘here.’”

According to Beckley, Carr later went on to invent a saucer-shaped device that he said for a mere $14 million would take us to Mars or somewhere else nearby in the solar system.

“Carr was a controversial figure in his own right,” Beckley added, “but no one has been able to prove that he didn’t work with Tesla in Manhattan, where Tesla was living in the New Yorker Hotel near Herald Square. We do know that Tesla was fascinated with the possibility of life on other planets.”

Beckley reiterated Swartz’s statements regarding Tesla’s attempts to establish contact with the aliens via radio.

“And he might have been successful in reaching out to the stars,” Beckley said. “Furthermore, Tesla is said to have even developed a ‘Tesla Scope’ that anyone could use to make contact with extraterrestrials. The device was on display in Canada for several years before its owner passed away.”

Now a few words about the title of Swartz’s book. Tesla died in 1943, in poverty and relative obscurity. As he moved from hotel to hotel, staying one step ahead of his debts, he often left behind whole suitcases full of notes and diagrams for unfinished inventions. Legend has it that after he died, the federal government stepped in and confiscated the material, believing it contained designs for new weapons devices and therefore was relevant to national security.

Tesla Died in Poverty in 1943.

But apparently a few things slipped through the fingers of the government. At a 1976 auction in Newark, New Jersey, a collector named Dale Alfrey bought four boxes of papers for around $25. Alfrey at first thought he had purchased the notes of a science fiction writer and had no idea of the importance of what the boxes contained. Twenty years would pass before Alfrey began to actually read the material and to try to preserve the badly mildewing papers by scanning them into his computer. While he was absorbed in this effort, he was visited by a trio of Men-In-Black who looked to him like “undertakers.” They offered to buy the papers from Alfrey, who replied that they weren’t for sale.

After further discussion, which included some disturbing threats from the MIBs, the three visitors turned in unison and walked away. Alfrey felt himself to be regaining consciousness after being in a kind of trance. When he rushed back inside, the papers were gone, and so was the hard drive to his computer. He never completely recovered from the experience with the MIBs, but he did retain enough of what he had read of Tesla’s lost journals to be sufficient for Swartz’s book. Meanwhile, newspaper accounts from the time of Tesla’s death related that a dozen large boxes of Tesla’s notes may still be unaccounted for, perhaps waiting to be rediscovered and give up their secrets in our time.

This newly revised and expanded second edition of “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla” by Tim R. Swartz also contains new chapters on Time Travel, Alternative Energy, and Nazi flying discs, all of which help to expand the range and depth of the legacy Tesla has left to us to assist in our 21st century groping for technological mastery of our world. If we ever learn to travel in time or to take our energy directly from the forces animating the universe or even to slip the surly bonds of Earth in a disc-shaped craft of human design, our debt to Nikola Tesla can only increase.

EXPLORING THE BIZARRE REALM OF THE PARANORMAL AND OCCULT SCIENCES

By Sean Casteel

Maria D’ Andrea

One of psychic Maria D’Andrea’s earliest memories is of fleeing as a refugee from her native Hungary during the Hungarian Uprising of 1956. She and her mother were among the 200,000 refugees seeking to escape iron-handed Communist rule in what would eventually become a failed revolution that was crushed by the puppet regime established by the Soviet Union.

            On that cold, icy trek to freedom, Maria’s psychic powers may have saved her life and her mother’s life as well.

austrianhungarianborder1956_2

Hungarian refugees cross a river on their way to Austria in November 1956.

            “It was actually my mother and some of her friends,” Maria recalled. “It was a large group. And as we were escaping, we got really cold and it was very dangerous. A lot of people around us were getting killed, but we were doing okay. The group stopped at a certain point and were trying to decide whether if they should go back or keep going forward. My mother told me I was six at the time. She said I told them that God said we should move forward and we’d be fine.

            “I don’t know why anybody would listen to somebody that’s six in the first place,” Maria continued. “But my mother said the group split up and half of them went back. The other half decided to listen to me. Apparently I wasn’t speaking in a way that a six-year-old would normally speak. My mother said the way I phrased it wouldn’t make sense for somebody my age. The group that went back, all of them got killed. But we made it to freedom.”

            Maria and her fellow travelers reached the safety of Austria and she and her mother would eventually resettle in the United States.

         When I mentioned to Maria that the Hungarian Uprising had recently had its sixty-year anniversary, she said, “You know what is weird? A lot of us don’t really keep track because we’re trying to move forward. But a lot of it I do remember. There was a lot of ice and it was freezing out.”

             The same psychic powers that delivered Maria and the other refugees from death have served her well as an adult. She has long been a fulltime, professional psychic, meaning that she makes her living giving readings and counseling to those seeking help from beyond. She is also an interfaith minister and a shaman and speaks publicly on spiritual, psychic, paranormal and interdimensional topics. Meanwhile, other members of her family, although they have similar abilities, don’t make their living that way.

            “Everyone in my family,” she said, “have jobs that have nothing to do with psychic situations. However, they do some psychic work on the side. As an example, both of my sons are in analytical fields and they both do readings. My grandparents on my mother’s side were trance mediums. My grandfather also did automatic writing and he used to channel his brother who had passed away when he was a lot younger.”

thumbnail_maria-lecturing

Maria insists that everybody has some degree of psychic ability hidden within them.

            Maria’s father owned a couple of businesses and was well-served by his analytical and psychic abilities.

            “Most of the people in my family were priests and ministers and professors at universities,” Maria said, “so they all had analytical jobs and possessed psychic gifts. They were highly intuitive.”

            But Maria insists that everybody everywhere has some degree of psychic ability hidden within them.

            “Everyone at some point has had a gut feeling,” she explained. “For example, when you first meet someone, not every time, but every now and then, before you even say hello you have an urge telling you whether you like them or you don’t. You ever notice that? So when you get that feeling, it’s more or less accurate. It’s a very intuitive, psychic – it’s like a warning system. It tells you basically if someone is not going to get along with you.”

            This doesn’t operate as a moral judgment on the other person, according to Maria. It simply means the connection between you and that person is not going to work out. Meanwhile, one’s intuition could just as likely be telling you that you’ve encountered a good situation.

            “So you’re picking up on whatever it actually is,” she said. “I feel that everyone has a base of psychic and intuitive ability. You can look at it this way: Some people are artists but everybody can draw. Well, pretty much, except me. I can’t do a stick figure. But everybody has a base for that also.”

Maria D’Andrea’s Positively Positive Spell Book.

            Global Communications/Inner Light Publications has published many of Maria’s books on numerous psychic topics. She is quick to point out that all her books are “How-To” books as opposed to a vain fixation on writing about her own life story.

            “I truly believe that the more you can do for yourself, the better the world gets,” she reasoned. “The better you do, the more you can help other people, and the better it gets for people around you. As an example, I have a book on finance. I have one on evocation, which is a heavier level of dealing with the spiritual realm. And then I have one that is a positively positive spell book.

             “I really never write anything negative and I don’t teach negativity. I truly believe in karma and that whatever you put out comes back. There’s always a positive way to approach everything. And the whole point is to help people improve their lives, whether it’s through meditation or rituals or spells or mentally focusing on situations. I always feel that if you have an interest in it then you’ll be attracted to it and you can benefit by spiritually improving your life.”

              You can read more of what Maria has to say about her work on her website, located at http://www.mariadandrea.com as well as contact her there should you wish to consult with her personally.

wordsofpower

Maria D’ Andrea’s Supernatural Words of Power.

              Maria’s bestselling “Yes You Can!” series of books includes a newer title called “Supernatural Words of Power,” which teaches one how to harness the simple spoken word to attain and achieve the things you long for in life. You will learn to command the true power of language to establish an open channel to the cosmos. There is a powerful energy force generated by the spoken word that man has been able to control since ancient times, but this ability has been locked away in our collective unconscious and hidden from the masses of us for eons. Maria teaches a simple, step-by-step methodology for reawakening the power concealed within us using words as that force’s most basic tool of expression.

               But if you find yourself not interested in different methods of psychic “reaching out,” then you’re not supposed to be reading her books.

            “It always goes to the person who is ready to move on that type of situation,” she said. “You know that saying? When the student is ready, the teacher comes. I tend to look at it that way. Sometimes it’s just a matter of letting people know the techniques and the tools they can actually use to improve their lives. Whether they want to move on it or not, that is free will.”

            Maria is such a dedicated teacher that she even does it without payment on occasion.

            “I do a lot of media work,” she said. “I used to teach on the air for free. I had a TV show called ‘The Spiritual World With Maria’ and it’s now available on YouTube. As much as we need to make a living, because, unfortunately, the phone company does not barter, we still need to put back. Because it’s a circle.

               “People always seem to forget the putting back part,” she continued. “Sometimes people look at putting back as a money thing, but it really isn’t. Sometimes it’s that you can help people financially. Sometimes it’s as simple as a friend needing a ride to the store or for an appointment if their car isn’t working. If you give them a ride, you’re putting back. Sometimes people really need advice. If you’re giving them advice from the heart, if you feel it’s going to help them, again, you’re putting back. The funny part is, when you do something like that, because you want to and you’re doing it from the heart, it really does come back. When you need a ride, say twenty years later, somebody’s going to be there for you.”

              One of the most basic components of what Maria teaches is open-mindedness, a sense of the psychic realm as a place we can freely explore in a continual learning experience. But first we must learn “psychic self-defense,” which Maria cautions readers to do in all of her books by the use of rituals and spells and by visualizing the protective white light radiating from heaven itself. Once that is taken care of, a positive spirit may come and speak to the seeker.

thumbnail_words-have-power-art

              “Now, it can be clairaudient,” she explained, “which means you can actually hear words in your mind. It sounds exactly the same as if someone was standing behind you where you don’t see them but they’re talking to you. There’s absolutely no difference in the way you hear it clairaudiently. Sometimes you have to remember they’re not literally there.

              “I’ve actually had it happen where I turned around to answer somebody before I remembered that they weren’t ‘there,’” she said, laughing. “But it sounds exactly the same. Sometimes you clairvoyantly see something or someone. You can actually see them physically. It depends on the situation.”

              But when inviting spirits into your life, again, you must remember to first use psychic self-defense methods.

              “I keep coming back to that,” Maria said, “because it’s really imperative. If there was something negative coming in, a negative spirit or entity, what would happen is that you would see them or hear them or know that they’re there, but they cannot affect you. That’s the difference. You’re always safe when you do this.”

              This ability to be impervious to negative spirits is what makes it possible to do a house cleansing, for example, and banish evil spirits – because we are always safe.

psychic-defense

Maria cautions that when inviting spirits into your life you must remember to first use psychic self-defense methods.

              “In the physical world,” Maria said, “we’ll go to places none of our friends would go to because we’re safe everywhere.

              “But say you’re summoning a spirit,” she went on. “If it’s a relative, it’s fine, because you know who the relative is. If you’re summoning a spirit by name, you need to be really sure what that entity is before you do that. Some folks will read a book and they’ll call in a name because the book said that it’s a positive spirit. I always say before you call in a spirit to work with you or help you, I would go to Google or the encyclopedia or the library and find out what they say this particular entity does. Don’t just look at what just one person says that they do. You want to double-check because you want to be safe.”

There are other necessary practices to follow.

              “One is, you have to be in a positive mood,” she said. “You have to have a goal. You have to be aware that you have free will. You have to know you’re in control at all times because in the physical body we really have the control.”

              There are times when a given spirit may not wish to work with you, she said, at which point you try calling in a different spirit who IS willing to work with you. Once the ritual or summoning is completed, you mustn’t forget to thank the spirit for helping you.

              “I happen to be an interfaith minister,” she said, “so I consider it to be God. But whatever you name your source, that’s that works for you. You have to thank your sources and send the spirit back. Because if you controlled its coming to you, it’s not going to leave until you send it home. You would get all kinds of issues if you forget. So you do have to send them back.”

A spirit has some degree of choice as to whether to leave or not.

              “But you have to remember that we have the will power,” she said. “We’ve spoken. We have to have emotions behind it because emotions are like a battery charger. And we really have to have no fear because we know we’re safe everywhere. That takes a little practice. If you encounter something negative, your first reaction is to panic. You can’t panic. You just have to remember that you’re always safe.

               “There really is no ‘negotiating’ with spirits,” Maria continued. “People have a misconception about that. We are always in control. The spirit can choose whether or not to work with us, but as soon as you’re dealing with a spirit where you’re supposed to be negotiating, you’re dealing with something negative. Don’t deal with the negative. As soon as any negotiating gets started, you want to send the spirit away and to have sufficient control to send the spirit away.”

Maria made reference to an occult law that says “like attracts like.”

             “So when you’re working in a positive way,” she said, “most of the time you’re going to attract positive spirits, because like attracts like. It doesn’t mean a negative spirit may not pop up to see what you’re doing or to test you. But they’re not going to feel ‘comfortable’ around you.”

              Sending an evil spirit love and healing energy works against its negativity and leads it to back off. But any feelings of anger or fear or emotional upset on the part of the human in question will be like delicious food to a malevolent entity. It’s a creature of negative energy that feeds on mortal negativity.

thumbnail_maria-would-love-to-talk-to-you

One of the reasons Maria likes to do readings is that what comes up in a reading is what people NEED to know, but not always what they WANT to know.

               Maria spoke about how the word “occult” simply means ancient wisdom and hidden knowledge, adding that today the more frequently used words are “paranormal” or “metaphysical.”

                “We really are the oldest science,” she said. “It’s not just a matter of someone up there chanting.”

                  For Maria, as a professional psychic, her mastering of the occult sciences and their wisdom has served to help others navigate the spirit realm and create positive change in their lives.

                  “One of the reasons I like to do readings is that what comes up in a reading is what people NEED to know,” she explained. “It’s not always what they WANT to know. At the end of a reading, I put in questions that the person can ask. But I never want to know anything ahead of time, because the universe will tell them what they need to know that’s going to help them improve their lives. Whether people make the move on things or not, that’s free will. But the point of a psychic reading is always to elevate yourself spiritually and to be able to maneuver much better within your own life.

                 “You don’t always have to use tools to be able to work in these areas. Some of it is just very direct. It’s a combination of mental focus and technique. You don’t always need rituals, spells, candles, gemstones, any kind of tools. A lot of times, our best work is when we just go direct. But the point of the books and some of the tools and rituals is for people who haven’t been on that level yet. It’s kind of like a training level. Once you really get the hang of it, eventually the point is not to need any of it.”

VISITING THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON – UFOS, MEDIUMSHIP AND THE PARANORMAL

 By Sean Casteel

At one point in the history of America the belief in spiritualism was as strong – and as controversial – as the belief in UFOs is today. And a demonstrable parallel can be drawn between the two topics, which even seem to attract some of the same people across the various paranormal research fields – more so in recent years as increasing numbers come to accept the reality of UFOs as being at least partially of a paranormal or supernatural nature.

The most fundamental belief of the Spiritualists is that the soul survives physical death and that certain departed souls can communicate with the living.

Spiritualism flourished beginning in the mid-19th century and for many decades held a fascinated general public in its thrall. Whether one was a believer or a determined skeptic, everyone had an opinion as to the reality of contacting the dead, with many others devoting their energies to the tireless debunking of fraudulent mediums who the skeptics thought were scamming the public and taking their hard earned money deceitfully.

What is Spiritualism? The most fundamental belief of the Spiritualists is that the soul survives physical death and that certain departed souls can communicate with the living. This communication is achieved through the agency of a medium, a man or woman who claims the distinct ability to speak with those who have passed away.

thumbnail_strange-figures-inside-teepee

The Shaking Teepee Phenomenon is common throughout Native American culture. A shaman will enter a teepee and the shadows of spirits will appear even though the medicine man is bound so that he cannot move about.

Mediumship traces its roots back to the ancient shamanistic traditions and is an extension of many priestly traditions as well. Most Native American tribes had at least one shaman or “medicine man” among them who would go into a specially prepared teepee and enter into a trance state (sometimes in a drug-induced state) in order to contact the ancestors of the tribe. Those standing outside the teepee could see mysterious shadows and figures moving about inside the lodge which could not have been the shaman. His hands were often bound and his posture secure – much like in a séance off the reservation.

A true medium can be a conduit for numerous Spiritualist phenomena, including prophecy (i.e., the Oracle of Delphi in ancient Greece). He or she may also be capable of clairvoyance and clairaudience, possess the gift of speaking in tongues and of healing by the laying on of hands. They may see visions and enter easily into a trance. A medium can also summon spirits and guides from the world of the dead and even cause the voices of the departed to speak aloud to a gathering of the living at a séance.

A distinguished British physicist and chemist, Sir William Crookes, around the turn of the 20th century categorized certain physical manifestations of spiritualistic activities. These include:

*** The movement of heavy bodies with contact but without mechanical exertion.

*** The phenomena of percussive and other similar sounds.

*** Movements of heavy substances when at a distance from the medium.

*** The rising of tables and chairs off the ground, without contact with any person.

*** The levitation of human beings.

*** The movement of various small articles without contact with any person.

*** Luminous appearances.

*** The appearance of hands, either self-luminous or visible by ordinary light.

*** Direct (automatic) writing.

*** Phantom forms and faces.

*** There is also the possibility of special instances that seem to point to the agency of a superior intelligence as well as miscellaneous occurrences of a complex character.

All of which sounds like a motherlode of the strange and bizarre and calls to mind many of the claims made by UFO abductees. This relationship between Spiritualism and UFOlogy has often been noted by Timothy Green Beckley, the CEO of the publishing houses Global Communications and Inner Light Publications. While Beckley is widely known as Mr. UFO, he has also long been interested in spiritualistic and occult matters and has republished classic works in the field.

The latest such offering from Beckley is “We Can Awaken the Dead: Evidence of an Afterlife Now!” It consists mainly of the personal journey to Spiritualist truth made by Vice Admiral W. Usborne Moore, a British naval officer who publicly advocated the notion that we can communicate with our departed loved ones.

MODERN SPIRITUALISM

thumbnail_vice-admiral-william_usborne_moore_spiritualist

A military man for most of his life, Vice Admiral William Usborne Moore’s worldview “softened” greatly after being contacted by the spirit of a loved one during a séance.

Moore began as a skeptic. He talks of reading a book, at the recommendation of an acquaintance, by the aforementioned William Crookes called “Researches into the Phenomena of Modern Spiritualism,” which Moore said had led many people to the subject. Readers marveled that Crookes’ credentials as a scientist did not deter him from expounding at length on the existence of “forces exercised by invisible intelligences.”

Moore decided to test the waters himself and went to visit a clairvoyant named Mrs. Crompton, in Portsmouth, England, in 1904.

 “She clairvoyantly saw a spirit form near me,” Moore writes, “that answered very nearly to ‘Iola’ as I remember her.”

Another medium, a Mr. Vango, described Iola to Moore two or three times, giving her name.

“These were the first intimations I received,” Moore explains, “of the desire of my relative to get in touch with me.”

As time passed and Moore visited other mediums, Iola continued to reach out to Moore.

thumbnail_seance-images-phenomena

During the heyday of spiritualism, photos of ectoplasm and spirits were often taken in the séance room. Some were obvious hoaxes. Others could not be so easily explained. Here are photos of ectoplasmic spirit and the fabled angel hair found at UFO landing sites that often dissolves in minutes.

“To be brief,” Moore writes, “I found that the deeper I went into the study of Spiritism, the more apparent it became that, whether he wished it or not, man’s individuality was not extinguished at death. I read books, visited clairvoyants, and attended séances for materialization. Through all of this I was constantly reminded of the existence of a near and dear relative, older than myself, who passed away thirty-seven years ago in the prime of her life. Her continued reappearances could only lead me to one conclusion: I was being guided to a reconsideration of the problem of immortality.

“At last, I have come to the absolute conviction,” he continues, “that what we call ‘death’ is a mere incident, a door to a higher life that is, in reality, more substantial to the senses we shall hereafter possess than the one we set so much store upon here. The near relative who had proved to me this valuable truth is called in this volume ‘Iola,’ a spirit name which she herself adopted to avoid the unpleasant complications that may arise as to her identity among those of her friends and relatives who are not educated in Spiritism.”

Thus Moore was drawn to the subject by his lost relative reaching out to him and not the other way around. Iola seemed to reenter his life from the world of the dead completely unbidden and without prompting on Moore’s part.

Along with his heartfelt belief in the genuineness of Spiritualism, Moore also took aim at the debunkers.

“Nothing they write has tallied with what I’ve seen,” he declares. “For a concrete instance of the foolish suggestions put forward by these ignorant ‘know-it-alls,’ I would point to a recent work in which there is a description of how slate-writing is performed.”

slate_3_lily_dale_museum

A slate that is now on display in the Lily Dale Museum, still has a message and a drawing of flowers allegedly produced by a spirit during a séance.

Slate-writing falls into the category of “physical” spiritualist phenomena in which a spirit takes chalk in hand and write messages from beyond on a small slate.

“The writer says the sitter brings his own double slate,” Moore writes, “and the psychic deftly inserts a small piece of chalk previously prepared by being mixed with steel filings. While the slate is being held under the table or elsewhere, the psychic moves the chalk by means of a magnet concealed up his sleeve and does it as in mirror writing.”

The debunking writer unequivocally says the deceiving medium’s use of this method is unassailable fact, but Moore quite pointedly differs.

“This statement of ‘fact’ is untrue,” Moore argues. “Such a thing cannot be done. Even with an electromagnet in open sight it would be impossible to write twenty legible words. With a man sitting near you and watching you it is not possible to write five legible words without detection.”

Nevertheless, Moore admits, books by debunking authors sold well and perhaps helped the naysayers to climb the social ladder of the time.

“For the majority of educated people are anxious not to be disturbed in their amiable doctrines of a Day of Judgment,” Moore reasons, “and a fiery material hell in store for those who do not agree with them.”

Readers at this juncture will observe that the way the skeptics behaved during the heyday of spiritualism is similar to the debunkers today who go out of their way to discredit many UFO experiencers, be they abductees or the much more tainted contactees of the late 40s and 1950s.

Early on in his book, Moore describes other physical phenomena he had personally witnessed, which included the materialization of heads and busts of discarnate entities, spirit singing, whispers and the flight of a musical instrument around the room and over the heads of the sitters, all the while playing a definite tune.

“I saw and heard a number of things,” Moore writes, “that could not be explained by any system of juggling or deception of any sort.”

THE DAVENPORT BROTHERS – THE GREATEST PHYSICAL MEDIUMS OF ALL TIME?

thumbnail_davenport-brothers

The Davenport Brothers managed to produce all sorts of phenomena while they were chained in a special spirit cabinet. Musical instruments would play and fly around the room of their “own accord.”

Such physical manifestations as Moore described were an everyday occurrence for the Davenport Brothers, a duo of American spiritualists whose talents were celebrated by none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of the immortal detective Sherlock Holmes. Doyle had manufactured a character whose skills as a logician solved many crimes, but Doyle himself was given to more mystical beliefs. His struggle against the magician and escape artist Harry Houdini over the veracity of Spiritualist claims – including that of the Davenports – is well-known. Beckley has published a book [see the Suggested Reading list at the end of this article] dealing with their very public conflict as well as other strange theories about Houdini’s “hidden powers.”

Beckley has also published “Dark Séance: The Fabulous Davenport Brothers,” which is in part a reprint of a detailed account of their careers written in the early part of the 20th century. Their story began in 1846, when the Davenport family was disturbed by what they described as “raps, thumps, loud noises, snaps, cracking noises, in the dead of night.” Not knowing how to respond, they simply did nothing.darkseance

A few years later, when the famous Fox Sisters began making headlines for experiencing similar things, ten-year-old Elizabeth Davenport declared that if such things happened to anybody, they might as well happen to them. The Davenports gathered around their table, placed their hands upon it, as they had read the Fox Sisters had done, and waited to see what would happen. After a few moments a movement as of swelling or bulging was felt in the table, then crackling noises, tippings, raps, and, finally, very loud and violent noises.

Ira Davenport, five years older than his sister, Elizabeth, was “taken with a violent propensity to write, his hand becoming subject to extraordinary gyrations. These messages were believed to be quite beyond both his mental or physical powers, and contained matters known only to the persons to whom they were addressed, and quite beyond his personal knowledge.”

Another incident in this early stage of the Davenports’ development involved the knives, forks and dishes on the breakfast table beginning “to dance around as if suddenly imbued with vitality. In a few moments the table began to move, tipping up sideways, balancing itself on one leg and finally rising clear from the floor, floating in the air without the least support and moving in such a way that it was wonderful that the dishes upon it did not slide off and come crashing upon the floor.”

Meanwhile, Ira’s younger brother, William, had begun to communicate with an entity who said he was not of this Earth. The entity warned them to procure a large table for the better accommodation of those who would be coming from far and near to see these wonders for themselves. The family began to hold regular séances during which the physical manifestations were repeated in front of witnesses. Loud raps were heard; the table answered questions; spectral forms were seen in the flash of a pistol; lights appeared in the upper parts of the room; and musical instruments floated in the air while being played upon above the heads of the company.

davenportbrothers

Ira Erastus Davenport and William Henry Davenport.

The spirits somehow communicated to the Davenports that Ira and William should take their show on the road. They began by touring in Maine and obligingly permitted debunkers to thoroughly examine their equipment and to bind the brothers hand and foot so that no sleight of hand could be perpetrated. In spite of these conditions, the brothers were nevertheless able to conjure mysterious arms and hands that would play musical instruments.

While appearing in Philadelphia, the brothers were met with “violent opposition” from “philosophers,” religious bigots, other spiritualists and people spoiling for a fight in general. It required fifty policeman to keep order. In spite of this, the brothers still produced the most extraordinary manifestations even before hostile crowds.

They continued to amaze observers and moved on to tour England and Scotland, appearing not only in theaters but also in private homes. In exclusive drawing rooms in London, they performed before not the “ignorant or the credulous,” but a select company that included some of the sharpest minds in England, none of whom could see any method of deception on the part of the Davenport Brothers.

 A writer for a London newspaper, The Morning Post, who was present for one such private séance, reported – somewhat bewilderedly – that, “Possibly they may be [clever conjurers] or it is possible that some new physical force can be engendered at will to account for what appears on the face of it absolutely unaccountable. All that can be asserted is that the displays to which we have referred took place on the present occasion under conditions and circumstances that preclude the presumption of fraud. Here is a field for the investigation of the scientific world.”

Beckley’s “Dark Séance: The Fabulous Davenport Brothers” also includes his own musings on the brothers and Spiritualism in general, with particular attention given to the similarities between Spiritualism and UFOs. It is certainly true that both fields cry out for serious study by the scientific community, as The Morning Post writer urged in his account of the London séance.

This has been but a brief overview of “Dark Séance,” but the book itself is rich in fascinating detail. Ira died in 1911 and his brother William died tragically young at age 36 in 1877. Whatever the secret to their apparent miraculous powers was, it has never been disclosed or discovered.

THIRTY YEARS AMONG THE DEAD

thumbnail_30-years-among-dead2-cover

Thirty Years Among the Dead.

While one reads Vice Admiral W. Usborne Moore and the Davenport Brothers in large part because they deal with physical manifestations of Spiritualistic workings, there is also another avenue explored in a book from Inner Light/Global Communications called “Thirty Years Among the Dead,” first published in 1924. The book is still available in older, more expensive editions, but Beckley’s version is the only one that can truly be called “complete and unabridged.”

“Thirty Years” is not, as the title may suggest to some, a dull account of hanging around a morgue somewhere. It offers instead a still vitally relevant approach to abnormal psychology that is based on the idea that extreme mental illness is caused – not by a harsh environment or muddled brain chemistry – but by the encroachment upon the innocent by the discarnate spirits of the evil dead.

You may already be thinking that therein lies the stuff of a great horror movie, but you will be intrigued to learn that “Thirty Years Among the Dead” is a factual, well-documented account of treating and actually curing the mentally ill by contacting the oppressing spirits within the sufferer and convincing those spirits to leave.

To carry out this form of therapeutic spiritualism, a physician named Dr. Carl A. Wickland worked alongside his wife, Anna, an accredited medium who voluntarily allowed herself to be temporarily possessed by these wicked spirits in order to better understand their tormented motivations. The Wicklands would then use this information to treat the victims who so grievously suffered under these destructive otherworldly influences. Along with the mediumistic coercion of spirits conducted by his wife, Dr. Wickland would administer low voltage electric shocks to the patient’s neck and spine with a device called a “Wimhurst generator,” a wand-like instrument that worked to “dislodge” the wicked spirit of the dead.

thumbnail_elizabeth-templeton-solway-firth-spaceman

UFO research also has a variety of unexplained photos of a paranormal nature associated with it – such as the photo of Elizabeth Templeton taken on an isolated hilltop in the UK. When the family photos were developed, a strange “spaceman”-like image appeared that was not visible when the picture was taken.

In his introduction to the new edition, Beckley explains that the Wicklands felt they had absolute evidence that these demented spirits of the dead liked to hang around the living in order to continue their evil ways even from the afterlife. In essence, they would leech onto those who were prone to similar fits of debauchery or were well on their way to a life of unabated revelry and eventual damnation.

“The influence of these discarnate entities,” Dr. Wickland writes, “is the cause of many of the inexplicable and obscure events of earth life and of a large part of the world’s misery. A recognition of this fact accounts for a great portion of unbidden thoughts, emotions, strange forebodings, gloomy moods, irritabilities, unreasonable impulses, irrational outbursts of temper, uncontrollable infatuations, and countless other mental vagaries.”

Dr. Wickland points out that “records of spirit obsession and possession extend from the remotest antiquity to modern times,” including the Old and New Testaments and the Homeric legends. The Wicklands’ work stands as an example of the power of certain Spiritualist practices to heal deep psychological and emotional wounds, something science is still groping in the dark to accomplish through medication and simple talk therapy.

And while it is true that Spiritualism cannot today claim the many millions of followers and believers it had in the years between 1850 and the early decades of the 20th century, Timothy Green Beckley is part of the process of keeping the movement in front of the reading public and demonstrating its continued relevance to many fields of the occult sciences and to the pursuit of the truth underlying UFOs and alien abduction. Beckley’s publishing efforts may one day help the world to arrive at a kind of paranormal “Theory of Everything” where all the mysteries fit in their proper places – to the enlightenment of us all.

CONFESSIONS OF A PARANORMAL UFO TIME TRAVELER – MARIA D’ANDREA EXPLORES OTHER REALMS

By Sean Casteel

maria-new-photo

Maria D’ Andrea

At home in Long Island, Maria D’Andrea wears the multi-jeweled crown of psychic, shaman, interfaith minister, lecturer, teacher and author. She can also lay claim to the diamonds of UFO contactee and time traveler to complete her crown of wisdom.

I spoke to Maria recently, being fascinated particularly by her UFO-related experiences and her claim that she has developed the incredible ability to travel through space and time, which she describes in astonishing detail in her recent book “Travel the Waves of Time: Contacting Beneficial Beings,” which is part of the “Yes You Can!” series released by Tim Beckley’s Inner Light publishing.

From the start, Maria wanted to make it plain that, when we talk about UFOs and their occupants, we are actually speaking of more than just one type of craft and crew.

thumbnail_aliens-in-time-and-space-maria

Interdimensional Aliens

“There are some aliens that are interdimensional and some that are physical,” Maria said. “But a lot of it is just that they’re on another plane of existence. We look at ‘spaceships’ – for lack of a better word. Sometimes, the way that they’re spinning vibrationally, you might see part of the ship because it will be in synch vibrationally with our realm for a couple of seconds or for a little while. Sometimes they’re simply physical ships. In any case, they have the ability to shift their energy between time and space. It’s just like when we go out-of-body, we’re able to travel totally without limits.

“But I find from my experiences, when I’ve run into the aliens, it happened more often when I was going out-of-body rather than seeing them physically. If you look at olden times, like really way back, people used to think of aliens that could travel between dimensions and through time as gods. They believed in ‘sky gods,’ which could have appeared in an airplane, a rocket ship or a spaceship. But because they ‘came down from the sky,’ the ancients saw them as sky gods. There is also an entity called Chronos, who is a time god, as well as one called ‘the angel of time.’ So through the centuries they’ve always had some type of god that came down in one form or another. They’re really either just time travelers or aliens coming into our space.”

Out of body experience

And what has Maria experienced herself in this regard? She says she now has the ability to consciously leave her body and often does so because it enables her to work with the various otherworldly energies quicker and more directly. During one out-of-body experience, she found herself looking at the planets.

“You’re thinking like you’re seeing somebody floating or flying through in-between the planets, right? And they’re usually going fast? I didn’t get to have that experience,” she said. “What I had was, I was stationary, like I was standing in one place, and the planets were moving. I remember a spaceship coming out from behind one of the planets. And it came a little bit closer. It kind of stopped and looked at me and then it went away. So these things happen more frequently when you’re out-of-body.”

 A VANGUARD OF UFO OCCUPANTS

In other experiences, Maria has literally seen the UFO occupants.

 “I had one situation where they looked just like us,” she recalled. “And then I had one that was just very strange. I’m kind of bad with heights and things, but they were a little bit taller than me and their skin was like a very dark brown. But it looked kind of leathery. When I met them, they seemed very, very friendly.

“They just wanted to pass on information to me. Which really means to ‘us,’ or whoever would have shown up. I don’t think it was only me specifically. Now, I was getting this more telepathically. It wasn’t as though I was getting a language or hearing it clairaudiently, which sometimes you do. This was more you just ‘know’ what they’re saying. There’s a ‘cross-sentience’ where you just know. There’s no other way to describe it.”

The dark brown leathery aliens communicated to Maria the idea that they wanted to help the world become more “awake.”

awake

AWAKE!

“The word I kept getting was ‘awake,’” she recounted. “I would have thought they would say ‘enlightened’ or ‘to do better,’ but I kept getting the word ‘awake.’ They were trying to awaken the planet and they were sending what looked like energy light waves. Think of a laser beam coming from them. It looked like it was coming from what we would call our Third Eye and the center of the palms of their hands. They were just sending white light with a little blue on the edges. I don’t know why. They didn’t explain the light; they just shined it on the planet to help the people awaken. Then they disappeared.”

Maria has had even stranger experiences, including this one that happened on her very first journey out-of-body.

monks

“The reason I’m saying ‘monks’ is because they had cloaks, brown cloaks, over their heads, so I couldn’t see their faces.”

“It feels like you’re in a gray room,” she said. “You know you’re in a room but you just don’t see walls. I remember that at a distance there was a row of – for lack of a better word – what looked like ‘monks.’ There was a row of them going from right to left. It kind of looked like a procession. The reason I’m saying ‘monks’ is because they had cloaks, brown cloaks, over their heads, so I couldn’t see their faces.

“I wanted to get closer to see what they looked like. When I started moving closer, I actually ‘felt’ a warning to stay away. Being who I am, I wanted to get closer anyway. Some of us don’t learn. So I moved a little closer and I felt the warning much stronger that said to ‘stay away.’ I tried moving closer anyway, because, again, it’s just me.”

After this last attempt to move closer, the warning to stay away suddenly had more meaning.

“All of sudden I realized that I didn’t know who I was,” Maria said. “Not only did I not know my name or who I was – I thought, okay, if I look down at my body I will see who I am. I looked down and there was nothing there. I panicked because, on top of everything else, now I didn’t even know my gender. It scared me so much that I popped right back into my body.

“If something happens and you get scared,” she explained, “or you’re in danger, you will automatically snap back into your body. It’s not like you’re going to die. You automatically snap back. But the first time, that’s what happened to me. I still don’t know who [the monks] are. It hasn’t happened again. But it was really, really scary.

“And after a couple of months of calming down,” she said, laughing, “I’ve been doing it ever since. I’ve never again run across the monks. But I could definitely ‘feel’ a warning. It wasn’t a threat. It wasn’t that I was in danger. It was just a warning not to get closer. Since then I’ve learned that if you’re seeing something at a distance, you really can’t get much closer. Because the closer you start to get, it just disappears and you come back. I think some of it could just be a survival instinct. On the other hand, when we have experiences like that, we tend to learn from them and try to do a little better with that.”

HOW-TO BOOKS OF THE SUPERNATURAL KIND

Visit Maria’s website at http://www.mariadandrea.com to get a detailed rundown of the services she offers and the numerous books she has authored over a lifetime of psychic adventure and exploration. She has definite ideas about the pragmatic nature of her literary output.

“First of all, all my books are really How-To books,” Maria explained. “They’re not about my life. It’s not vain. It’s all How-To, so that people can do things for themselves. Because I truly believe that the more you can do for yourself, the better the world gets. Basically, if you know the technique, pretty much everybody can do it. A lot of it has to do with going out-of-body.”

There are numerous ways to achieve an out-of-body state, such as by using meditation or specific types of crystal and copper in various setups and combinations.

“When you’re dealing with that,” Maria said, “what people forget about is that it’s basically about how to navigate the energy streams. So, when you’re going out-of-body, there are different waves or different levels of energy. And interdimensionally, the only difference between our dimension and another dimension is the rate of vibration per second of the energy.”

vibrations

“The only difference between our dimension and another dimension is the rate of vibration per second of the energy.”

This difference in the rate of vibration is why some things are visible to us in the physical realm and some are not. It also explains why something may appear only temporarily to us, because the vibration of the energy from another dimensions is just momentarily in synch with our own before reverting back to its own dimension. To reinforce this idea, Maria points out that, in real-world physical terms, we know a spectrum of colors exists that is far outside our human ability to perceive them. Even though we don’t take them in with our eyes, they are nevertheless truly there.

“So, when you’re dealing with out-of-body,” Maria continued, “or when you’re dealing with traveling through time and through space, essentially you’re putting yourself into alignment with the vibrations of the energy on that interdimensional edge. The difference is, sometimes we do it consciously and sometimes we don’t. I do feel that we’re always under our own control. And that’s a very big factor. People get very nervous about some of these situations.

“The first thing I always teach is,” she cautioned, “with anything someone is ever going to try spiritually, on the paranormal level, psychically – on any of those levels – the first thing they must do is learn psychic self-defense. Because you need to be safe. I look at it as ‘electricity.’ You don’t see electricity but you also don’t put your hand in the socket. It’s a matter of understanding the laws of the universe.”

Psychic self-defense involves various rituals, spoken prayers and visualizing oneself surrounded by heavenly white light. The important thing is to be aware of one’s rights as a mortal creature who need not fear the spirits on the other side even if the entity one has contacted reveals itself as negative and malevolent.

 TIME TRAVEL IS THE WAVE OF THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE!

thumbnail_time-travel-maria

Time is more fluid than we may realize.

Maria also has her own perspective on the phenomenon of time travel.

“We have a specific time that we look at, whether we’re doing rituals or anything else,” she said. “And the reason is that we need the ‘time construct’ in order to have the necessary mental perception to function in the physical world. So we have ‘time,’ but they do not. When you’re dealing with spirits or aliens or any form that is interdimensional, they don’t have the same outlook on time as we do.”

The first step to genuine time travel is to learn to travel out-of-body and therefore outside of time itself as well. Just like the benevolent spirits we may contact on the out-of-body plane, we also are not limited by time or space.

“We are actually masters of time,” Maria declared. “People just don’t realize that because they don’t know the technique. I do like to get people to understand how to work interdimensionally because we’re really not alone.”

Gabriel Green for President of the United States!

By Diane Tessman

The Space Brothers Candidate!

gabrielgreenforpresident

America Needs a Space Age President.

There was a moment in our history when We the People could vote for a man who bravely championed contact and friendship with extraterrestrials and who attempted to lead us into a bright new day!

I am proud to have known Gabriel Green who ran for President of these United States in 1960 and again in 1972. Gabe would have been the “Flying Saucer President” who would have disclosed the existence of extraterrestrials in Earth skies, and explained their positive motivations to the people of Earth. He wanted humans to benefit immeasurably from the advanced Space Brothers and Sisters’ knowledge and wisdom.

However, Gabe was ahead of his time; even in 2016, we still struggle to accomplish UFO Disclosure. Gabe did not meet the required number of voters to be on the ballot with Richard Nixon and his Democratic rival, John F. Kennedy in 1960, but he nonetheless put together a full platform, covering a range of economic and social policies based on information received from the Space People, and campaigned mostly in his native California. He ran a full-page spread in the Los Angeles Mirror News. Despite early enthusiasm, Green withdrew in October, giving his endorsement to Kennedy. In 1972, his campaign drew even less attention but Gabe was intrepid and brave; he always gave it his best.

Have we taken two steps backward? In 1960 we at least had a presidential candidate who waged a serious campaign involving Disclosure and Contact. In 2016, there is no candidate who even mentions extraterrestrials, although Hillary Clinton is said to have a real interest in the subject and would like to disclose at least some of the truth.

I knew Gabriel Green when he was a few decades older than during his presidential and senatorial campaigns, but he was still a dedicated Disclosure/Contact pioneer. I first met Gabe at his home in Yucca Valley, California, in 1983. My good friend Timothy Green Beckley was visiting the area and asked if I would like to meet Gabriel Green who was famous in the George van Tassel days at Giant Rock. Of course I wanted to meet Gabe Green! He had blazed a trail for me to follow in my UFO and ET research and Contact.

Gabe’s home was full of working computers and I wondered who he was communicating with; were they on a starship? I will never know, but Gabe was a fascinating man and I loved to listen to his tales of extraterrestrial contact at Giant Rock and then, ongoing ET communications in his life.

Gabriel Green was born in Whittier, California, in 1924. He studied at the Los Angeles Art Center School of Photography, but his career aspirations were put on hold when he was drafted into the U.S. Navy. At war’s end, Green returned to civilian life and operated a photography studio as well as working in the Los Angeles school system.

The Space People’s Candidate.

As George van Tassel began drawing tens of thousands of people seeking contact with the Space Brothers and Sisters at Giant Rock in the High Desert of California, Gabe founded the Los Angeles Interplanetary Study Group in 1956. He promoted interplanetary messages and music. He also became regular speaker at flying saucer events, including Giant Rock gatherings. He then launched the Amalgamated Flying Saucer Clubs of America (AFSCA) as a successor to his study group and published a national newsletter inviting the Space People to please continue contact with humans.

Gabriel Green was also a trance medium who channeled messages from the Space People himself. He led UFO circles in past life regressions and taught individuals how they too could make psychic contacts with far-distant beings. It was at this point in his career that 1960 rolled around and he ran for President of the United States.

In November of the same year, Green married Helen Isabel Sibert. The couple remained together until her passing in early May of 1970; Gabriel never remarried and I could always sense his sadness and how much he missed her. They were married a brief ten years before she passed.

In 1962, Gabe launched a campaign to become the Democratic Party’s California nominee for the United States Senate. However, he failed to make an impact and he put politics behind him for the time being. He made claims to having telepathic connections to John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy via his Alpha Centauri contact “Renton.” While there is no way to prove this, I saw no reason to ever doubt Gabe’s sincerity.

Gabriel Green and Diane Tessman, 1983, Yucca Valley, CA.

In 1972, Green took part in his second and final presidential campaign, this time as the nominee of the Universal Party, with fellow saucerian Daniel Fry as his vice-presidential running mate. This time Gabe was registered on the ballot in Iowa but his efforts garnered less success and less press than previous years.

Gabriel Green retired in the mid-seventies to Yucca Valley, near Giant Rock. It was in his comfortable home there that Tim Beckley and I enjoyed talking with him on several different occasions. He continued his work as a medium, relating messages from the Space People. He remained an active member in the UFO field until his passing in September 2001. I like to believe that he is now one of the Space Brothers himself; I know Gabe would agree with that possibility too!

Interview with Gabriel Green at the August, 1960 AFSCA Convention

The following is a transcription of a recorded interview, conducted at the August 13-14, 1960 meeting of the Amalgamated Flying Saucer Clubs of America.

Question: What made you decide to take on this campaign, aside from the other duties of your organization?

Gabriel Green: Well, I decided as a result of a request from the Space People that I do so. At first I was very reluctant because I felt very humble with being asked to undertake such a responsibility. Frankly, at first, I really didn’t feel that I wanted to take up on my shoulders such a tremendous project. But when the Space People talked to me about it, and pointed out that our civilization was doomed unless somebody took the effort, made the effort, and took the action to change the present direction in which mankind is heading that we would not very long have a civilization on this earth. And, like many others, my buddies in the service, I was in the war too, and I was fortunate enough to come back alive, and I feel that I owe something to my buddies, and to those who are yet living, to dedicate my life to attempting to resolve the many problems which mankind is facing now, and as a result of the advanced information with the Space People have over a period of many years have been a party to us, we now have this information in our possession, and I have decided to submit to their request to carry through with this program, to attempt to bring to the American people these solutions so that they may evaluate them for themselves, and decide for themselves whether or not they feel they have merit.

Q: I see. When you say Space People, are you referring to actual personal contacts or psychic contacts?

GG: I’m referring to personal contacts with the people from other planets.

Q: Now, are these individuals present in our civilization? Are they free, walking around–?

GG: Yes, there are many of them walking our earth, as fantastic as that will undoubtedly seem to many of our people who have not had the opportunity of becoming aware of the overwhelming existence of these people visiting our earth at the present time, which our flying saucer movement has accumulated over a thirteen year period of investigation.

Q: What is the main difference between an extraterrestrial person and a person born on this planet? Is there any physical difference, or mental makeup difference, or anything of that sort?

GG: You would not be able to recognize any physical difference, although, in general, I would say they are perhaps better looking than the average earth person; although we, of course, have many very handsome people, movie stars for instance, and a great many very good looking people on our own planet. The difference would be, I would say, primarily, a mental and spiritual advancement, as well as having an understanding, a greater understanding of all that is, that means scientific and technological information, which allows them to live in a non-destructive society.

Q: Will these people actively participate in your campaign, or merely offer suggestions during the campaign?

Gabe For President – 1960

GG: There is a certain limit to which they can intervene in our behalf, or will intervene, and the limits of this intervention in behalf of the welfare of our people of earth depends on universal laws. All planets must go through an evolutionary period, and they know that it is impossible for people to learn anything if everything is done for them. They could, at any time, take over our earth between breakfast and lunch, and make robots out of all of us, but this would be against their universal laws, and against their principles. They are here to help us help ourselves, and we all know that you can hold a baby’s hands, but you cannot walk for him: he must learn to walk for himself so he can do things on his own if the help that is given to him is to remain permanent.

Q: Is the actual success coming in November or do you merely see an opportunity to bring your question to the people?

GG: Our main purpose this year is to attempt to get information about our plan before the public, and when our people understand this plan, it will sell itself on the basis of its obvious merit; but, and I say this, that if we receive sufficient publicity before November, we would be in the White House this year. I say that if we had 1/10th of 1% of the wealth behind just one of our candidates, that we could be successful in reaching the presidency in 1960. But if we are not successful this time, we will have a four year period in which to campaign, and present our plan to the people, and by that time, the Space People assure us, that we have a very excellent chance of being successful.

Q: Thank you very much Mr. Green. Best of luck.

GG: Thank you very much, it’s been my pleasure.
