A Quote About Ancient Aliens

Jim, on Ancient Aliens: "They either go too far, or not far enough." 
That sums it up!

"Jim" being my dear one.

We still love you Ancient Aliens. It's just that, at times, it just gets so …. 

You know.

But as I said. We still love you!

In spite of …

Alfred Lehmberg at The UFO Proletariat

At the sister blog UFO Proletariat, where Alfred Lehmberg is a contributor, who writes, thusly (as he might say)…

The UFO Proletariat: "It's a rabbit hole... sure. But then everything is, eh? We don't even understand ourselves, it is clear, awash in Whitehead's fallacy of "mis-placed concreteness…"

Indeed. So take a look over there; lots of good thoughts on UFOs in our midst.

The UFO Proletariat: Wait... What?! Alfred Lehmberg

Alfred Lehmberg on things gone wrong in UFO Land. At my blog UFO Proletariat, where, graciously, Lehmberg is a contributor:

The UFO Proletariat: Wait... What?!: In 2004 I was fresh from a substantive and emotionally messy donnybrook of the ufological kind. This regrettable kerfuffle involving the man called Mortellaro was the result of a knowing betrayal of my trust—neatly and before the fact—a betrayal as regards some kind of corporeal thread or inroad into this thing we're all interested in involving UFOs.

I'd bet on the wrong horse, frankly, and been humiliatingly hoaxed. Husband, father, grandfather, Air combat Veteran, Retired Army officer, Master Army Aviator, Summa college graduate, and aspiring writer on non-fiction, I was once burned, now, and maybe three times shy. (Lehmberg)

Do It Yourself Abduction Regression Kit:Golden Merkaba, Chariot

Jim and I, and some others with us,  are walking on the boardwalk by the ocean. It is twilight. Cool, but on the warmish side for November. Light rain falling, wind. Orange and yellow leaves are falling slowly to the ground. I hear the wind, the rustle of trees, the falling leaves, the ocean ... I tell everyone to stop and listen, there’s something happening here. Everyone tells me of course there is, it’s just the rain and the wind. I say no, not that, listen! There is a sound behind the expected, the normal. “They” are here, and by "they" of course I mean "them." You know, those invisible aliens and their morphing craft. Soon, all can hear this sound behind the sound. It's a kind of invisible humming, or... something. We watch a leaf fall very slowly to the wet pavement and I say “That’s not normal, it’s falling way too slowly and purposefully for a simple leaf.” The leaf then turns into a large yellow geometric shape, the size of a VW bug, a yellow jack (child's game of jacks) then   a golden  Merkaba. We know to look up, way way  up, in the sky which is now vibrating with shots of light. Clouds are shaking.  A large UFO/craft appears through the clouds and the feeling is clear and sharp: this is not good, not good at all.

Dream scene shift, and  we are in a pleasant conference type room, surrounded by picture windows, up in the wooded hills. Isolated, out of town. It's later this same night.  The subject is UFOs, and I am desperately trying to tell everyone about what had happened earlier with the changing leaf, as well as my past columns for UFO magazine. I feel an overwhelming urgency to get this information out.  People are asking me all kinds of questions -- they’re beginning to feel this urgency too. Then I say to someone it’s like “the other dreams, the dreams I’ve had before this.” And I realize that I’m dreaming now, and talking about other dreams within this dream. Layers of dreams, messages  just barely hiding within them.

The presentation begins. We sit and watch a video on UFOs and abductions, and how using the tools presented in this film, we can now regress ourselves. No longer do we have to go to an untrustworthy hypnotist or researcher, or share with strangers . We can regress ourselves within ourselves, by ourselves. This is great news for us and most of us seem to accept this as a breakthrough. We feel empowered, and that's the important thing, even though we are also uneasy about what would be revealed via this do-it-yourself-hypnosis-abduction-regression-kit. 

Merkaba: ancient sacred symbol representing energies of the human body ascending, used in spiritual work. A tetrahedron; two pyramids as one.  The Merkaba protects, transforms, brings us closer to our higher selves. It is also the Hebrew word for Chariot. In Tarot, The Chariot

The color yellow can be yellow aventurine. I don't know if that was the specific stone in the dream, but I found it interesting that one characteristic of yellow aventurine is to "help people who have problems with power and control."  (Healing
Also:Those who are oversensitive or indecisive, issues relating to an unbalanced Sacral Chakra, can also benefit from Yellow Aventurine's reassuring and balancing energies. Meditating with a Yellow Aventurine Merkaba can help focus your intentions for manifesting a sense of ease in being yourself. (Healing
The Major Arcana tarot card, The Chariot, also has to do with control, will, assertiveness, direction, victory, travel. Interesting the Chariot is also a vehicle, as is a UFO/craft. Both the golden Merkaba and the Chariot have to do with will and control.

In the dream, the Golden Merkaba came down from above; disguised at first as a leaf, then a child's toy, then finally, the stone. It transformed from familiar things to something more esoteric. While it came down from above, so did the UFO. The Merkaba was not a negative energy, but the UFO was. Both out of my control, both out of my doing. Later, meeting with other like minded individuals, in the woods -- we were away from others, in a private setting surrounded by nature -- taking back our own power with the "do it yourself" kit. Retrieving memories lost to missing time is our choice, and the way we want to do that --  if we want to do that --  is our choice. Each one of us determines what it means, not some self-appointed UFO guru shames or trivializes those who do not share in his or her conclusions.

A Fairy Survey

Image Public Domain

A fairy survey. Three, actually, based on experience. Thanks to Anomalist for link. Yes, I took one of the surveys; of course I did!

Survey - Fairyist: The Fairy Census is an attempt to gather, scientifically, the details of as many fairy sightings from the last century as possible and to measure, in an associated survey, contemporary attitudes to fairies. The census was inspired by an earlier fairy census carried out by Marjorie Johnson and Alasdair Alpin MacGregor in 1955/1956, a census that was published in 2014.

LogDriver: Emma Woods, Creepy Professors and My Little Wooden Box

LogDriver — Emma Woods, Creepy Professors and My Little Wooden Box: Suffice it to say that listening to the recording of Creepy Professor threatening Emma Woods over the phone when she refused to go along with his delusional script for her life brought back an explicit (by which I mean detailed, not X-rated) memory of being threatened by my former dissertation advisor when I called him up to explain why I wanted another one of my committee members to serve as chair instead of him. I remembered the trepidation I felt as I got ready to make a call I really did not want to have to make; I remembered his lengthy silence after I said my piece; I recalled the venomous tone in which he finally spoke. He had a low, rumbling voice and did venomous quite well.
An excellent piece, well written and very personal.

Jeremy Vaeni is back!

Jeremy Vaeni, along with Jeff Ritzmann, had one of the best UFO podcasts ever with their Paratopia program. In this article from Jeremy he explains why he stopped his podcast, and why he's back. I'm looking forward to this! October Surprise: Whitley Strieber Resurrects Me From The Podcasting Dead | JayVay:

 Premiering exclusively at, The Experience is a weekly half-hour program wherein I interview experiencers of all high strangeness phenomena. Anything and everything is on the table. Let’s explore it all: what it means to be an experiencer; what the experience itself may mean beneath its obvious surface. And what is an “experience of high strangeness?” Does it hold at its core a singular intelligence using numerous facades like tools to interact with us, or are we embedded in a much larger ecosystem filled with multiple intelligences and energies that live on the periphery of our senses? Or is something else entirely going on? (Jeremy Vaeni)

Anti-Anti-Tricksters @ The Nightshirt

Excellent points from Eric Wargo at The Nightshirt regarding the Trickster within UFO study. He cites Hansen's most excellent The Trickster and the Paranormal,   which should be read by anyone at all interested in exploring UFOs. I've been writing about trickster like manifestations and UFOs, as well as related aspects of the enigma, for a long time now. (See my: Trickster, UFOs, Paranormal, Supernatural…Seeing the Virgin: Tricksters Take it to the People, Speculation on Mary as Trickster, among others.)

Anti-Anti-Tricksters @ The Nightshirt: Reynolds is right that the Trickster concept can’t serve as an explanation. But at least in my reading of the topic, including George Hansen’s massive study The Trickster and the Paranormal or books tangentially invoking the concept, like Colm Kelleher and George Knapp’s Hunt for the Skinwalker, the term isn’t being used in a literalistic way to denote a “real being.” Rather it is being used, quite appropriately I think, as a shorthand term for a type of sentience or intention that seems to underlie a wide range of paranormal phenomena (ranging from UFOs to psychic experiences to hauntings) and that has a distinctly ironic, thwarting character. There’s no other term that quite fits the bill as well as “Trickster.” (Eric Wargo) [italics are mine, not Wargo's.]

Synchronicites: Smile!, and White Wolf. Oh, and Owls.

I wrote this on my Facebook page last night:
We need to be aware of what we say to children, and to students. Telling a child to "smile!" is usually a well meaning thing to say, but think about it. We have no idea what a child has been through the night before, or that morning on his or her way to school. Maybe they slept in a homeless shelter. Or outside. Maybe their home life is chaotic, maybe they didn't have enough to eat, and so on. Insisting they "smile" is just one more lame thing another adult who is clueless tells them. Instead of expecting children to "smile" let's give them our support in other ways. I won't insist a child "smile" but I will smile at them. I will let them know I am glad to see them, glad they are here and let them know I will do my best to keep them safe while they are in my care. I don't care if they smile or not, but I will let them know I appreciate them. I will let them know I listen to them. But I will not tell them to "smile." 

Ubiquitous yellow faces of enforced gaiety 

Later that evening, I was watching Forever. Not a great show but something about it keeps me watching, since I'm easy when it comes to supernatural content. Last night's episode had a Jack the Ripper theme --always worth following -- as well as a comic book theme. The name of the comic book in the show was Soul Slasher. Big camera zoom in on a page; lots of gore and horror and Soul Slasher and the words "Smile!" I thought that was an interesting juxtaposition to what I wrote about concerning adults demanding that children smile. Well meaning, usually, but behind that is a "soul slasher" effect.

Forever, mild mannered TV mystery starring Dr. Cute

I'm always receptive to white wolf, that image living within my dream head for many years. A picture of a white wolf was on the wall in the doctor's office today, and later, a friend of mine posted on FB her "animal totem" which was a white wolf. Nothing better to do on a rainy day, home with an ear infection, I took the "What is Your Animal Totem" quiz, expecting to get White Wolf as well. Nope. I got… yes, OWL. Uh oh. We know what that means!

The owls. The owls! . . . 

Lehmberg on C2C and Jacobs

From September, this excellent post from the Orange Orb evil twin sister blog, the U.F.O. Proletariat, contributor Alfred Lehmberg wrote on Noory, C2C, and David Jacobs. Definitely worth reading. Let's not forget Jacobs -- and let's stop treating him like he's a UFO god worthy of respect.

The UFO Proletariat: David Jacobs On Coast To Coast AM...: David Jacobs has risen once again from his moldy crypt of deleterious ufological retrograde to appear on the increasingly irrelevant George Noory version of Coast To Coast AM, a program so insipid and cognitively bereft that Art Bell has ordered the program to stop mentioning his name as a historical taproot or fellow... and to which I'd long cancelled this writer's subscription. Among the highlights of the, in my opinion entirely disingenuous, appearance: (Alfred Lehmberg)
