The Toll of Silence:
The Human Cost of National Security Act of 1947 Secrecy
by Niara Isley

Posted: 13:11 April 22, 2009

On March 28th this past month I did something that was a big deal for me, I spoke publicly at the Aztec UFO Symposium about my extraterrestrial-related experiences, both my childhood through adulthood abductions/contacts and my more challenging military experiences while in the Air Force. You can read a basic account of those experiences at or search the UFO Digest website for the article, Nellis AFB Radar Specialist Witnesses UFO. If you have seen the Bruce Burgess 1996 "Dreamland" documentary, then you've seen me, I was the female radar specialist interviewed in shadow.

When my experiences first came to light, they left me reeling in shock for a number of years. I was very resistant to coming forward publicly about them. At first, frankly, I was terrified. Someone or some agency had gone to alarming lengths - at great personal cost to me - to get me to compartmentalize that memory and bury it and I was quite positive they would not want me remembering it, and most certainly not want me talking about it. Not only were the actual experiences traumatic to recall and re-experience under hypnosis, the very idea that such things could happen in the "United States of America" that I had learned about in school as a child growing up was even more chilling. American icons I carried around like the flag, mom, baseball and apple pie went up in smoke. I was, from the moment I came out of hypnosis, living with and trying to manage an internal level of terror, trying not to let it overcome me so I could go on living and working my job and paying the bills.

The few friends I told of these experiences found them so far outside normal human everyday reality that they tried to tell me I was mistaken somehow, or just to forget about it and put it behind me. But when you are handed an instant case of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), how was I supposed to "just forget about it and put it behind me"? And even before the memories began to be reclaimed from hypnosis, there was internal physical and emotional evidence of PTSD.

So on the one side, I was afraid of government-military repercussions and I had my recovered memories of how terrible that could be. On the other, I had friends and family who couldn't seem to handle even hearing about such experiences. It made seeking healing or help seem impossible. For a long time had to live with the internal tremors of the PTSD.

I was already kind of a different sort of person from the norm - sensitive, inward-focused, nature-loving - had been from childhood on, and I was afraid this would just isolate me further from the rest of "normal" humanity. In addition, on my quest for more information about what had happened to me, and in what context it had occurred, I met many grim and angry conspiracy-theory types who seemed to have little sense or intuition of the spiritual (rather than religious) side of life. This grim anger was not what I wanted my life to be about… so after a few years of digging up more information, that brought up more questions than answers, I decided to shove it all to the back of my mind and get on with the kind of life I wanted to have, one that was centered in spirituality and connection to others.

This did not work either. The essence of a spiritually-lived life is to "know yourself", to collect all the fragments of your spirit that trauma and challenging experiences have split away from your essential being-ness and reconstruct yourself into a new, integrated, healed and whole self. So, after several years of shut-down, I opened up to my memories and PTSD with a new agenda, to heal the emotional fallout from my experiences. I was very fortunate at this time to find a wonderful, caring and gifted healer to work with on this, and I'm deeply grateful to her for her help. I could not have come so far as I have now without her. I now hope to pass that help on to others using the body-centered life coaching training I've had, and other certifications I've collected over the years.

The Cost of Silence: Our Government of the People, by the People, Stolen from Us

After 8 years of a political coop that usurped the U.S. government called the Bush-Cheney administration, I have learned the cost of staying silent, and it is far too high to remain silent.
