Alien Dreams and Memories II

Within the outer world of sense

Thought-power doth lose existence of its own;

The Spirit-worlds are finding

Once more their human offspring

Which must its seed discover

In spirit; but its fruit

In Self must ripen

Rudolf Steiner

In an earlier article for UFO DIGEST, I shared accounts of men and women who claimed to be experiencing alien dreams and memories. The response to that article has been remarkable. I am gratified to report emails from across the Canadian Provinces and the United States, as well as from across the big waters from France, the UK, Australia, Spain, and Poland.

"Thank God, you spoke up. I thought I was all alone down here, " was one very common response."

"Thank you for helping me to understand my true mission on Earth," was another remark often heard.

"Reading the article was like reading an account of my own experiences," wrote another . "I am so happy so many of us are coming together as a Family."


For many readers, such as Angie, a writer from Los Angeles, the article provided memories that had long lain dormant in their psyches:

According to Angie: "One summer night when I was a child, I woke up without reason to see a shining, silver humanoid being standing at the foot of my bed. I remember the sensation of undistilled terror. But the feeling changed into awe and wonder as I watched the being fade away.

"The second event that I recalled was when I was older and driving alone on a dark country road. Suddenly I saw directly behind me and just above me a brilliant white light with a bluish center. I did not hear a voice, but I was unmistakably getting a message from the light or from something. I knew somehow that [the message] was from myself--or from something connected with myself--in the future or in the past. .. I came away from that experience knowing with a deep certainty that 'I am.'

"It was years later that I found out what the 'I am' phrase means in theology, in regard to Moses' experience with the burning bush. It's hard to put into words, but from that time on, I knew that 'I was,' that I exist, that I will do so for all time, and that there has never been a time that I have not existed."


Christa had her life saved two times by three entities who guided her to safety as a child struggling for survival in Germany during World War II.

Once she was trapped in the cellar of her uncle's home, the survivor of a direct bomb hit. The entities, who at that time appeared as three bright lights, contacted Christa's grandparents in a mutual dream and caused them to insist that digging be resumed.

Later, the entities manifested in human form and motioned her off a bridge just before Allied bombs obliterated it.

Christa saw her first UFO when she was sixteen and living in Great Falls, Montana. The experience began her longing for the stars.

"I knew as I saw this UFO that I did not belong here on Terra [Earth]," she wrote. "Longingly, I wanted to go to my true home beyond our solar system. That night I was told in my dream that the time was not yet, and that I must grow and have patience."

In February of 1961, Christa "lost" five days of her life: "I remember a bright light, a control console and revolving crystals ... I had knowledge of a planet that was my true ancestral home."

She awakened fifteen miles from Great Falls. Five days had passed--although it seemed as if only five minutes had elapsed.

Christa soon discovered, however, that not only had she lost five days, she had also lost her job. And running through her thoughts was this bit of poetry:

Lo and ,behold I enter your mind,

and into your hands I deliver to you

the body of a child!

Born I know not where

Conceived among the stars up there.

Delivered to be raised by Terrans

And to learn their ways

Before returning back home

To my ancestral race.


Jack, a former U.S. Coast Guard electronics technician, from Morro Bay, California, has experienced "visions of an infinitely expanding universe" since his early childhood. He also expressed his occasional feelings of sadness in living among largely insensitive men and women who express too much of the Earth, and too little of the stars.

"It is difficult for me to find people who are willing to drop their daily schedules and thoughts and work and social conglomerations to just experience the magic of life and spirit with a fellow human, "Jack said. "Alas, this tends to dampen my enthusiasm at times, and I pick up too much of the oppression which surrounds me.

"Occasionally, though, there is the fresh breeze of the exceptional individual who blows in from the depths of humanity. At those times I rejoice."


Sherry and I are convinced that if even the archest of skeptics would read the mail from well-adjusted, well-educated, highly contributive men and women who freely claim such transcendental experiences, they would have to concede that "something is going on," that the individual mystical experience is far more widely spread than certain materialistic pundits would have us believe.

We have determined that integral to the individuals whom we have named "Starseed" is an activating visionary experience which occurs at about the age of five, introducing the child to an intelligence who thereby becomes a guiding entity and who maintains at least a sporadic contact with the individual throughout his or her life.

Virginia, who once served as a technician with the Air Force, remembers that her activating experience occurred on a Christmas Eve when she was about four. The incident was highlighted by an out-of-body experience when Virginia got up and "walked" to see the Christmas tree lights, then saw her still-sleeping body lying in bed.

"I knew that if I woke up then, it would still be Christmas Eve and I would still be four years old," she said. "Then I knew that somehow, that even If I didn't wake up until years later, like Sleeping Beauty, nothing would change. It's really funny, but that incident formed my entire approach and attitude toward life. I know that, somewhere, I'm still four years old, and it will always be Christmas Eve."


Luana, a former schoolteacher from Nevada, wrote that after her encounter with an alien or a multidimensional being as a college student, all of her senses became extended. In the area of sight, her color perception extends in both directions, principally on the blue end.

In hearing, the extension is such that any loud noise of prolonged duration--over thirty seconds--sets up a vibration which first causes pain in the mastoid area, then causes uncontrolled shaking which lasts for several minutes. The nerves of her entire body "jangle" and only subside when the noise ceases. It takes a good hour to return to normal. Sirens are a constant menace.

As a retired schoolteacher, Luana recalled that one of her worst experiences with noise occurred in the school parking lot when all the drivers began honking their car homs to celebrate a sports victory.

It took fifteen minutes to get away from the noise. and a half an hour before she could get control and get out of the car. It took a stiff drink to dull her nerves to a semblance of normality.

Bright light is also a hazard for Luana. Once, standing in the sun, perceiving flashes off band instruments, caused a temporary blindness. Her students led her back to class. It took about half an hour for her sight to return.

Emotions seem to create problems for those who experience "alien dreams and memories," because they are so empathic. In order to function effectively as counselors, they must learn to create shells around themselves. As Luana remembered it:

"At one time in my mid-twenties, it was necessary for me to escape from my friends whose problems and joys I absorbed to such an extent that I was physically drained ... It was also at that time that I learned to seal my emotions off and no longer absorb so much. There have still been recent times when I have been physically drained by the problems or excitement of others, but the renewal is rapid."

In his response to alien dreams and memories, Cliff, a hospital intern, expressed a hypersensitivity to light, touch, emotion, and hearing, but he has found some compensation in a response that other respondents have also noted: "When I kiss or make love, I hear music coming from the other person and/or myself."

Sensitivity to vibrations considered "musical" by those in the physical plane is also a common factor in the individuals who have responded to our Steiger Questionnaire (see Cliff said that he was also visited by such entities as a "girl-woman who radiates shining white light and speaks in a soft, musical voice."


Consistent with our earlier research, those who wrote regarding their alien dreams and memories were at least 87 percent "night people," who prefer to do their most important mental or creative work after sundown.

In our broader sampling of individuals with such awarenesses and memories, we find that about 94 percent of them vividly recalled their activating experience with an entity or light manifestation at about the age of five, while the other six percent are consciously aware that "something important" happened to them at that time.

Nearly all those who claim such memories remember always yearning for a place that they consider their "true home," somewhere not on Earth.

Stephanie of Youngstown, Ohio, first wrote down her concept of "Cosmic People" in 1980.

Stephanie commented to us that "as with probably everyone else that you have heard from, I, too, was shocked to discover that thousands of people have been contacted by Light Beings; I was also completely amazed that so many people have been given the same types of ideas and messages from their sky families. It truly is wonderful and wondrous!"

Stephanie told us of her encounter with two Sky Beings at age five, which altered her life from that moment onward. As her quest continued, she, too, had become interested in documenting the awakening of the "Cosmic People."

As in the case of our own research, Stephanie commented: "They do not originate in any single or special group of human beings; they seem to come from every race, color, creed, nationality. philosophy, psychology, and political belief on the face of the Earth. However, they hold certain ideas and ideals in common within their hearts."


Those visited by alien dreams and memories are not without their frustrations in dealing with this Earth, as Frederike of Pasadena, California, confessed to us:

"Let me say that your books, meditations, and so forth, are helping me to rid myself of much anger at the people who are messing about with the Earth ... Sometimes, much to my shame (I don't like admitting this to you!) I think, "Why should we help these idiots? These people who kill and tear and hurt things without so much as a thought of regret are barely out of the caves. Just let them go'"

"This is not a very enlightened thought on my part, is it? I know, and deeply, too, that we have an obligation to help everyone--and most especially those people who are living in the dark and who are ignorant when they destroy Earth' s gifts and resources and all the other things they mess up."


Regardless of whether or not they might be blessed with such an insightful and restorative personal vision, many of those people who seem to be experiencing alien dreams and memories seem well aware that they can always rejuvenate their energies through meditation. Dale of Waltham, Massachusetts, uses a crystal to go deep within her psyche and to return with such expressions of the experience as the following:

Seas of brilliant colors, flowing and swelling,

moving, like graceful wings.

Energy surrounds my whole being.

My mind grows even stronger,

and I am filled with the light of a thousand suns.

I feel totally alive, rejuvenated, and renewed.

I live.

I am the Light, eternally guiding others to my Creator,

Growing brighter and brighter,

Bursting and rising into the far reaches of the Universe.

To the place of beginnings…
