CHOSEN UFO ABDUCTION CASE STUDIES
By Yvonne R Smith
Posted: 14:45 March 28, 2008
I met the author of this book when she and I were invited (along with others) to speak at an International UFO Conference over in Carrick On Shannon Ireland last year (2007) I sat fascinated as I listened to Yvonne's lecture on her first hand experiences with UFO abductees and was amazed at the power point slides that she put up on screen each one showing in graphic detail the small grey 'beings' as they poked and prodded their helpless victims. And that's the thing, the helplessness that UFO abductees find themselves in when they are suddenly catapulted into the 'Twilight Zone' (for want of a better word)

There are many hundreds of people spread out throughout the world who are involved in UFO abduction research and a good number of those are doing so through hypnotherapy and using it as a tool to hopeful retrieve any hidden subconscious memory of their abduction event that might, just might, help to explain if it really happened at all or if it is all in the mind. Having looked at this subject myself for over 20 years, I am of the firm belief that we are indeed somehow interacting with some form of non human intelligence, now what exactly that 'alien' intelligence agenda is, is of course open to question and interpretation.
Yvonne initially had absolutely no interest in matters pertaining to UFOs and aliens, she of course had heard about it (as we all do) through TV and sensationalised press reports but initially dismissed these reports as over active imaginations, that was however, before he mother handed her a book to read entitled, "The Tujunga Canyon Contacts written by Anne Druffel. This book described the use of hypnosis to unlock the memories of two women who shared a UFO experience. However, it wasn't so much the actual UFO incident that intrigued Yvonne, is was more to do with the use of hypnosis at getting at what could be termed the truth, or trying to explore the truth, whatever that truth may be. This set Yvonne off on a one woman crusade where she learned that hypnosis was not just about making people act and quack like a duck, that it had its more beneficial purposes. She perused the writings of the American Medical Association and poured over as much information as she could get on the use and workings of hypnosis and the mind. It wasn't long before she found herself enrolling in a local hypnosis class of which she graduated from.
Not long after she graduated from her hypnosis school, Yvonne and her mother attended a Whole Life Expo in Pasadena California which amoungst other things, had aspects on hypnosis and UFOs. It was during her visit to this Conference that she encounterd and listened to one Budd Hopkins who himself was making a name for himself in the world of UFO abductions. Back in Yvonne's home town she started her own hypnosis classes which brought forward a number of local people with ailments from heavy smoking and weight problems, each who looked to Yvonne to do something about. Whilst working with these people, she began to realise that a number of the people that she was working with, put down their problems to a UFO experience. This was puzzling to Yvonne and set her out on a course that would change her life.

Soon Yvonne was working with what we would term as 'UFO Abductees' and this book highlights but a few of her more startling cases that she found herself involved with. What I'd like to do now is basically discuss some of the points that Yvonne makes in her book because as we'll see, some points have a relevance to one major Scottish case that I worked on some years ago.
