A Little Experiment: Pendulums, Telepathy and Aliens

Popeye and Eugene
The psychic aspect of UFOs seems to be too often ignored or dismissed by many researchers. Often exasperated by what’s perceived as a silly, New Agey element that is an embarrassment to “serious” UFO researchers (someone please tell em what is a “serious” UFO researcher? A suit and tie? Heavy use of a clipboard?) a psychic component of the UFO phenomena is sometimes seen as an unwelcome intrusion into credible research.

But there is a psychic thread within the UFO experience, and it’s dishonest to ignore that. It’s dishonest, or at least a disservice, to reject the value in this fact. UFO lore is full of stories of people who’ve had some kind of psychic or telepathic experience in context of their UFO and/or alien encounter. The UFO literature is full of stories of witnesses finding that they have a sudden, unexplainable strong urge to look out the window, go outside, walk or drive to a certain place. Upon doing so, the witness sees a UFO or encounters an entity. Sometimes these encounters include psychic or telepathic communications between human and alien.

There are also many stories of witnesses who say the UFO they saw “knew” it was being watched, knew that the humans were there. The UFO seemed to have an intelligence and awareness of the human witness, and plays or puts on a show for them.

My Self-Reflexive, New Agey Self

I’ve had a literal lifetime of paranormal and UFO experiences, including this psychic aspect to UFOs. My interest in this part of UFOlogy is personal; self-reflexive. While I’m a bit embarrassed myself about my New Agey side, well, there it is. Call me Crystal Cruncher if you must, but like Popeye said (who had, as his companion, the supernatural “pet” Jeep... something was going on there) “I am what I am.”

Invisible Aliens: They’re Here

Three different times I’ve had the eerie experience of knowing that “they” were in the room with us. Who “they” are, I’m not sure, but a few things I just know to be true are: “they” are related to UFOs, “they” are not human, and yet have a connection to us, and “they” are very much aware of us; far more than we are of them.

I never saw ‘them” but their presence was as real, as tangible, as concrete, as anything else in the room. I would think I was just over imaginative or going crazy, except that, in all three instances, this experience was confirmed by others.

“You Know They’re Here, Don’t You?”

The first time it happened, I was in someone’s living room with a group of people. An informal UFO study group; we were talking about UFOs, sightings various individuals had had, etc. I suddenly had a very strong and slightly electrical feeling (similar to what I get when around ghosts or spirits or with other psychic phenomena) that we were being watched and listened to. Furthermore, that the entities watching us were here, in the room with us, and I could tell exactly where they were: up towards the ceiling in a corner of the room. I felt very strange -- was I going insane? Maybe it was just all this talk of weird UFO stuff. I glanced over and the woman who lived in the house -- and has had a life time of UFO experiences, including abductions -- was giving me the widest grin. I wondered what the heck was she was grinning at? Finally she said “You know they’re here too, don’t you.” It wasn’t a question. She went on to say that this happened several times before.

The second time was in our own living room. I was with my husband and a few friends. The conversation turned to UFOs. I had that feeling again! I didn’t say anything, but I was becoming uncomfortable. Then my husband said that he felt them in the room with us; he had been aware of them watching us for a long time.

The last time this happened was in the house we’re living in now. Four of us, my husband and another couple, were talking about all kinds of things. The conversation turned to UFOs and ghosts, which wasn’t unusual, given that this couple has had a life time of extremely intense paranormal (including Bigfoot) encounters. Just as if someone had switched on a light, they there were! I could feel them, hear them, and I could hear them, or sense is more accurate, that they were kind of laughing or more like chuckling -- they were defiantly amused. I could point exactly to where they were: up towards the ceiling, in the west corner of the room. Again, I remained silent, but my friend Lola suddenly said “I feel like we’re being watched, there’s a presence here, right there” and she pointed to the corner.

Expecting a Spaceship

I’ve seen several UFOs throughout my life. Sometimes there’s a sense of communication going on; other times, it seems random. Years ago I was at a friends home. We were downstairs watching vacation slides, and I had the sudden feeling we were going to see a UFO. I was waiting for it. I noticed the hostess kept looking out the window, watching something. It was nighttime, so all one could see were lights and the dark. I knew she was watching the UFO. After a few minutes, she said to everyone “Look, come look at this light” and we did. All we saw was a white light, but it was very bright, and doing a strange bobbing thing, moving towards us. We went upstairs to get a better look. With the naked eye, it was a white, round light. Through binoculars, it changed shape every few seconds: triangle, square, rectangle, as well as color: turquoise, orange, red, yellow, green.

What strikes me about this event was that the object was almost boring -- just a round white light -- yet when observed through binoculars, it was pretty amazing. And why have such a strong foreknowledge of such a mundane looking object?

The Orange Orb

And then there’s my orange orb sighting in the 1980s, where the object seemed to respond to my thoughts, following me intentionally. There was missing time involved in that encounter -- not just for myself, but my husband as well. Intense dreams, nightmares really, followed that sighting, for example, dreams of beams of x-ray type lights that paralyzed us.

The Pendulum

The other night I decided to use a pendulum to see if I could discover anything about these experiences. I like the aesthetics of using a pendulum, I like the personal connection between the earthiness (I use stone or gem spheres) and myself. I asked the pendulum if my encounters with the orange orb UFO, and the presence of these invisible entities were connected with aliens “from outer space.” (These were separate questions.) The answer was a strong yes.

I trust the pendulum; I’ve had success with it so far although I’m still in the exploring stage. And yet, while the answer to those questions is interesting, I’m not sure what to make of it. I’ve made it a point to not say “I’m an abductee” because I know no such thing. I’ve never even seen an alien; have no conscious memory of anything abducted related, or of seeing an alien. (I have had some strange experiences in altered states, via meditation, dreams, etc.) In asking the pendulum these questions, I tried to keep my mind blank, asking only for the truth. How much of the answer was my own, how much was a true answer?

Context of Experience

All three instances with these “invisible aliens” occurred in three different places, with different groups of people. In the case of the first experience, and the third, the people involved were very heavily invoked in UFO and paranormal experience. In fact, these experiences began when they were children, and, extended beyond them to other family members.

In the second instance, where my husband was present, the only two people that had a life time of high strangeness, including UFOs, were myself and my husband. (We knew the other people there very, very well -- one was a relative -- and they did not have that history of experience.) It was during this event that my husband had also, for the first time, talked about his experience of the orange orb sighting, which added a new twist to things!

So it seems that a gathering of people with a life long experience a connection, -- a relationship -- with UFOs and possibly the paranormal, intently discussing these subjects, seems to invite or “call” these entities to stop by for a visit.

In that context, I think it’s fair to say that the pendulum was accurate.
