5 Guidelines for Choosing a Hypnotherapist

During my book writing years, people would email me from time to time about how to find a good hypnotherapist or hypnotist to work with for looking at extraterrestrial encounters, investigate missing time, or even to look at past lives. This underscored to me the need to have this skill to offer and I’m now certified in hypnosis. But what about people who don’t live near enough to me, or to any other hypnotherapists who are “safe” to explore memories with that might just land someplace way outside of “accepted reality”?

First of all, be sure you really want to explore your memories or missing time. It can be like opening Pandora’s Box, and it can’t really be successfully closed again. If you have memories of extraterrestrial experiences or military abductions or other-dimensional experiences, it will take you time to process and integrate such experiences. There can be much turmoil emotionally, even post-traumatic stress, as you work through this. If you are working with me, I strongly suggest continued body-centered sessions to help deal with what you’ve discovered. Even if you’ve had your session with someone else, if they are not available to help you integrate what you discover, then consider working with me or someone else you feel can truly help you. In the old days, there were what I call hit-and-run hypnosis sessions – a session would happen with a hypnotist (rather than a hypnotherapist) and then off that hypnotist would go, leaving their client with a lot of strange and/or frightening material to try and sift through and make sense of on their own.

I will be doing some limited sessions via Skype for a while to see how they go and if this is a good, viable way to work with people at a distance. My guidelines on this are firm: prospective clients must have a trusted person present with them to handle Skype and technical aspects of the session while they are exploring their memories. The other equally important aspect of this is to watch over the person being hypnotized and provide a sense of safety. “Trusted person” would mean some friend you trust completely and who you would seek out to talk about your experiences under hypnosis anyway.

But what about those who are not able to do a session via Skype for some reason? What is the best way to find help to explore your memories and experiences? Following are some suggestions.

1) Finding the right hypnotherapist/hypnotist.

If you can, find out if a possible hypnotherapist works with people who have had ET encounters, and has experience with this, and experience with ET encounters is important! In looking for a hypnotherapist, try any spiritual circles of friends or places where people gather who you feel good about. Let them know you are looking for someone, and, as much as you are comfortable with in opening up to your circle of friends or the spiritual gathering, tell them why you are looking, and ask what they know about any prospective hypnosis practitioner. If they help you find someone, then you can apply the discernment process I’ve outlined below. If you don’t have this kind of circle of support, try the yellow pages or do some internet searches for hypnosis.

2) Prepare yourself to meet and talk with a prospective hypnotherapist or hypnotist.

Before meeting and talking with them, calm and quiet any emotional or mental activity going on in you. Mental activity to quiet down: worry thoughts, racing thoughts, anxiety thoughts. Emotional activity: emotions you feel caused by the above thoughts that could be causing any emotional-body reactions, such as faster heartbeat or breathing, any tightness or sensation of contraction in the throat, chest or stomach area. Too much mental or emotional activity can jam your intuitive radar. Basically, you want a calm, quiet and centered demeanor when meeting and talking to them the first time, at least as much as possible. Then your intuitive radar can function more properly. You will be able to trust your intuition more when perceiving from this calm, centered state. If thinking and emotions come up, gently tell them you will give them time to be thought/felt later, when you are alone. Once you’ve prepared yourself by calming and centering, talk with the prospective hypnotherapist on the phone or in person (again, before agreeing to or arriving to do a session!) carefully pay attention to how you feel in your body while talking with them.

3) Take some time to yourself to assess how you felt in talking with the prospective hypnotherapist or hypnotist.

Once you’ve had this initial talk with the prospective hypnotherapist, take some time to assess how you felt in their presence from the calm centeredness, as much as you were able to cultivate and maintain. How did the discussion and information “land” in your body? In a body-mind state of calm centeredness of possible perception, what came up for you, in the mind or the body? As much as possible, perceive the spontaneously arising thoughts, emotions or body sensations that come up in meeting the hypnotherapist without too much second-guessing or dissecting with logic. I have learned to pay attention to feelings that constitute “YES” or “NO” in my body, and I believe you can also. One is yielding, relaxed and may have happiness with it, the other is resisting and has a closed, contracted feeling in the body, with mental thoughts of concern and a feeling of hesitancy.

4) Choose someone who will support YOU in working with you, not someone with a personal bias to support their own research, opinions or beliefs.

In talking with them, find out their own feelings about the kinds of experiences you want to explore, or their feelings about abductions or contacts or other strange experiences, such as military or covert ops abductions. What is their approach? If they have any set beliefs or ideas about abductions as being bad and invasive, steer clear of them. Even if your experiences feel bad or invasive to you, the last thing you need is someone who will commiserate with that or try to look for and draw out all the information supportive to such beliefs about experiences. It could make things worse for you in the long run and keep you from discovering everything about your experiences, including the gifts of your experiences that come from integrating them into your life and new expanded world view.

Mary Rodwell, a friend and hypnotherapist from Australia, has sought in her work to simply bring forth people’s experiences through gentle questioning without applying any of her own belief systems, preconceptions or prejudices to what she and her clients uncover in sessions. Because of this, she has taken her clients – including myself – to some remarkable places of understanding and insight with regard to their experiences, and it comes far more from we the clients for ourselves than from her.

5) Trust is essential to going under hypnosis.

Pay attention to your feelings and perceptions. It’s vital that you select someone to work with you feel good about. In investigating extraordinary experiences that fall outside our normal daily reality, there is enough that can be strange, otherworldly, other-dimensional, disturbing, upsetting or downright frightening. You don’t need to feel you can’t truly trust the hypnotherapist on top of all that. He or she should be a guide for you that you can fully trust.

When all is said and done, pay attention to your intuitional feelings and how they land or register in your body. Thoughts and emotions will flow from these intuitional feelings, but don’t go off into too many logical thought processes. If you feel the “YES” or “NO” in your body, trust it, and either work with the person who inspires the “YES” or move on from the person who inspires the “NO” and look further, and apply the same assessment and discernment process to the next prospective hypnotherapist or hypnotist.

I hope this post is helpful. If you have questions, I will be watching the comments section under this post and will do my best to address any questions in a follow up post or video. Watch for future posts, audio or video logs about opening to our tel-empathy and expanded senses, and discussing the concepts of resonance, dissonance and discernment.

Namaste,

Learning to Cry

“The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.”
~ The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran

I have been through extraordinary trauma; trauma that warps the mind and makes the soul weep, even when my body, conditioned to be stoic and “show no weakness” couldn’t let the weeping happen.

Fortunately, at long last, I am learning to cry; indeed, I can’t really prevent it any more. When I am moved by either grief, beauty or some other upwelling of emotion, I find myself crying. It’s as if some dam of stoicism has cracked and all kinds of tears are pouring forth at times; tears of sadness, grief, of relief, even of joy.

I can only say that it’s better to be able to weep than not. In the past, when I could not allow myself to cry to the point it seemed my ability to cry had been shut off, the internal pressure of needing an outlet for grief and not being able to get it out by giving vent to tears had me feeling like I might implode.

A New Way of Being in the World

In trying to digest way too much from the “information superhighway” that is the internet, and feeling total information overload, another big insight is making a shift from being an information and learning junkie (I’m a lifelong learner and love learning new things!) to being far more inward-focused and moving from my own inner center, listening to impulses to do this or that or just “be.” I still want to learn as needed, but will be tuning in much more deeply to following my inner guidance on what I need moment to moment. I am coming to feel – and trust – that by staying centered as much as possible, moment to moment, I can be guided to what I most need in that same moment. No need to pile on tons upon layered tons of outer data and information “just in case.”

My wonder questions: What could I learn by following my impulses, by making space inside myself for the innate wisdom I might not have even realized was in there because I’m looking outside of myself so much of the time? What knowledge might be seeded within my soul, waiting for an outlet, waiting for a special new way of listening to see what might emerge? I don’t know, but I’m excited to learn new ways of deep listening within to find out. I will be finding ways to put myself in the path of this newer way of being, opening more and more to intuitive guidance, more and more to moving on my inner impulses as much as possible.

First-time Author Learning Curves

I guess I’m a rank amateur when it comes to being a new author. There is so much more to self-publishing a book than I imagined! Next book, I’ll be much wiser. And most likely there will be more books. Right now, I’m in an “aversion to technology mode” out of necessity to get my body back in shape after 4 years of sitting, writing, editing and formatting. After all the work on Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light, it’s time for me to give some tender-loving-care to myself for a while. Writing the book has been a vital part of my healing process… remembering, writing, expressing, sharing. And I’ve discovered in my trauma recovery work studies that the kind of back problems I have are directly related to the sexual assaults I suffered during my experiences. But I believe in the complete resiliency of the body to heal when given the right opportunities, beginning within the realm of consciousness.

Managing My Electronic Life…

Sometime in the future, reworking how I use the internet, including email, Facebook, and other digital means of communication, I’ll be creating more blog postings, written and video. In the comments sections below such entries, I’ll be paying attention to questions that people pose to me about my experiences, and I may create a Facebook group for the same purpose. I will do my best to address these questions in writing or in a short video.

I plan to do some teleconference calls with groups of people where questions can be answered in an interactive, real-time setting. Because for all the people who have suffered trauma in one way or another who resonate with my way of working with people and trauma, I want to be there for you as I can. If you are a person who needs deeper work in this area, please visit my About Body-Centered Therapy page to learn more about me and my skills and talents in this area, not the least of which is having gone through the process myself.

Posts on this website and on my Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light website will diverge from here on… Encounters with Healing will be more devoted to the healing arts, especially as pertaining to trauma, and teaching about consciousness expansion. Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light will be for sharing new learnings and insights about extraterrestrials, disclosure and much more about the forces impacting and shaping our world today.

I sincerely hope the book does well out in the world, as of today. I poured into it all my love of this planet, of all life here, and especially my love of humanity and the wonderful things we can become if we can accept our differences and unify to celebrate the hearts and souls that we essentially are, that simply want to love and be loved in return. From my heart to all of yours, I wish you all your highest and best personal and spiritual evolution.

In’lakech – I am another yourself,
Niara

Writing, Editing, Proofing… Done!

Well, I wondered if this day would ever come, but it has. I’ve finished all work on the book and it’s off for formatting for self-publishing. Lots of obstacles kept popping up, but I’ve finally prevailed!

I’ll post here again when the book is available for sale! Right now I need to jump into a whole new set of tasks, especially finishing up my Trauma Releasing Exercises training. Still have to complete Level II to work with groups. More tasks to do as well on all kinds of things that have been on hold for a long time due to book work!

Thanks for reading…

Warmly,

Niara

Reclaiming Freedom

Reclaiming Freedom

“… if it is a despot you would dethrone, see first that his throne erected within you is destroyed.

For how can a tyrant rule the free and the proud, but for a tyranny in their own freedom and a shame in their own pride?

And if it is a fear you would dispel, the seat of that fear is in your heart and not in the hand of the feared.”

~ From “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran, on Freedom

It is fear that undermines and restricts the full exercise of our freedom.

So how do we deal with the darkest dark in our world? Hellish things that come straight out of humanity’s worst nightmares? Head on. Into, through and out the other side.

If we know that terrible things go on in our world, if we know, as from all kinds of news reports, mainstream and alternative, that war goes on, torture goes on and more, then these acts touch the collective human psyche of which we are all a part. We can try to ignore them, but ignoring them does not productively or effectively deal with them. Such ugliness can become things we secretly fear. They lurk in the dark corners of our minds. But so many of us do the animal thing and avoid looking at them, hoping that they won’t “get” us. We plaster over such fears with happy thoughts and positive affirmations. Like black mold in a house, plastering over it does not get rid of it. It has to be exposed to fresh air, the light of day and cleaned out or it will sit there and continue growing, malignant and unseen, undermining our quality of life.

We must stretch ourselves to understand that we are more than flesh and blood. The evidence for this is burgeoning all around us. Those who have achieved expanded awareness through spiritual practice know the larger energetic and vibrational reality “within”. Quantum science has given us a model for consciousness at work in our world. This has birthed new areas of consciousness and psychic phenomenon research. Near-death and out-of-body experiences and the profound changes in consciousness of individuals who experience them also support this. We are made of light, energy and vibration. It is our consciousness, collectively, that dreams into reality the solid-seeming world we see around us right down to the bodies we inhabit.

Organized religions have failed us by not addressing these parts of us. We have been cut off from the true knowledge of who we are through religious indoctrination. Traditional religion puts human authoritarian intermediaries between us and the Infinite. Intermediaries as subject to human failings and the seven deadly sins as the rest of us. At their worst, religions have sought to control their followers with fear. Fear of eternal damnation, word pictures they paint of realms they call hell and purgatory. Why? Because the church leadership fears the loss of the power and wealth their followers bestow on them.

Governments have failed us as well. We must fight and make war with whomever the powerful label as “Other”. This Other may have something they want to possess. So the Other is made into someone “not like us”. Savages, barbarians, heretics, infidels, terrorists. “Other” is evil. They use noble-sounding rhetoric that plays on the indoctrination of populations into taking actions they want taken. Their aggression is cloaked as religious crusades, patriotic defenses of ideology or preserving racial purity. Preemptive wars are justified to make sure such Others are dispatched before they have the chance to “get us”. And, oh well, as long as we’ve conquered the evil Others, we might as well lay claim to their land and other spoils and make use of them as we see fit.

Divide and conquer is the way the rich and powerful play the game. They fear us as a unified population. There are millions, billions more of us than them. They know that if we ever all got together, particularly with spiritual knowledge of who we truly are – consciousness inhabiting form – our collective, directed desire, thought and intention could put a decisive stop to their power chess game with the world and it’s people. They have a vested interest in us not remembering our own multi-dimensional and spiritual wholeness. They have staged an all-out war on expanded consciousness, trying to mask it in every devious way they can so we don’t catch on.

Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself

The power chess game going on in this world is all about who can wield fear and control over populations most effectively. Fear is the gross base level weapon of the few but powerful over everyone else. Bliss and ecstasy can be another. Both have the potential to be extreme emotional states that block our intuition from functioning. From there, the control devices get more and more subtle.

The best way to control anyone is for them to not realize they are being controlled. So they do it through televised media. They do it overtly with packaged content. And although use of frequency manipulation, subliminals, and other subtly invasive electronic measures are deemed illegal, they are still very likely covertly used, because honestly, how are most ordinary people going to be able to detect it and report it? One of the healthiest things you can do for yourself is disconnect from the public mind control feed in your own home: cable or satellite television. I would even get rid of the boxes that bring the signal in. If you want entertainment, rent movies or TV shows from a local or online video rental service. You’ll enjoy them a lot more without constant commercial interruption, and you’ll pay far less. But watch them in moderation. Get out and live your own real life.

The first step in escaping what traps our consciousness in this world is learning of the ways it steals and cages our energy. If we come to remember that we are more than the bodies we inhabit, that we are indestructible beings made of spirit, love and light, then we have a choice. Are we going to allow ourselves to be manipulated by fear, or other emotional extremes? Or can we learn to simply relax into the knowledge that we are energy and vibration?

If we come to that knowledge, we discover that fear – especially as it is brandished about in our society by those trying to manipulate us with it – is really a phantom with no real substance. Fear doesn’t have any real power over us. It only has the power over us that we allow it to have. It tries to look terrifying in its many masks. It tries to trick us into surrendering our sovereign beingness as free consciousness to it’s thrall. This is to keep us locked into the 3D “solid” reality paradigm. If we can be convinced we are just physical beings subject to pain and death, we can be frightened into compliance. We are controllable.

The reward of achieving and maintaining a higher vibration of love and inner peace is that our consciousness can begin to awaken to its true nature. Our awareness can begin to expand.

It is very true that our bodies can experience pain, suffering and death. We are especially susceptible to threats to loved ones. But if you surrender your sovereign beingness on some hollow promise of being protected from pain, suffering and death, you may later find out that the price of such “safety” was far too high. Surrender your freedom to the state for “security” and you become a herd animal in fact, to be managed or disposed of as your masters see fit. You have abdicated your right to choose for yourself.

The United States Constitution is not a document that grants us freedom. If we believe that, then we can also fall into believing it can be taken away. The Constitution is meant to reflect that that we are in essence free sovereign beings, endowed by the Creator with certain inalienable, inherent rights. Freedom is not given to us by the state, nor can it be revoked by the state. Freedom is inseparable from who we truly are. We, humanity, cannot be “set free”. Freedom is our natural birthright as spiritual beings having a human experience. As pure energy and consciousness.

And even if we have given our freedom away, we can reclaim it at any time we choose.

Why else would there be so much propaganda out there, be it religious, scientific or medical, funneling our beliefs into ourselves as limited and frail human beings? Even in the face of new evidence of life and consciousness beyond bodily death, the old conditioning dies hard. The mainstream public eyes such information with both hope and suspicion. In the face of fear most still fall into the old belief systems. Fear that can then be used to manipulate them in to trading their freedom for “help, safety, security” – the seductions of the controllers.

  • In assessing my own exercise of freedom I ask myself the following questions:
  • Is it worth it me to surrender my freedom for a hollow “promise” of safety and security?
  • How might others I give control over me manage my safety, my health, my well-being?
  • Could I live with the consequences of such a decision?
  • Would it be better to stay free, live free, act freely, speak freely? Even if someone tries to harm me in some way to stop me?

I was afraid of what had happened to me. I was afraid of speaking out. But the time finally came when none of those factors could any longer compel me to remain silent. The personal cost became too high. The energy of fear was locking down my consciousness and exacting a toll on my body. I had to shed it.

So far, I continue to take the stand for my personal freedom, day by day. What might happen to me if I was ever truly tested on my commitment to freedom no matter what? In all honesty and integrity, I can’t say in this moment. I’m as human as anyone. But so far, the questions above keep my personal compass pointed to “Freedom”.

The only honest limits on freedom dwell within conscience: not to infringe upon the freedom of others nor inflict harm by word or deed. Honor all life and live in mutually beneficial harmony with it.

***

I looked at the dark as deeply as I needed to to understand what actually existed out there and to understand in what context my own experiences happened. I looked at volumes of it. Today I my approach is this: Don’t turn or run from anything because it’s too scary to look at, but deal constructively and positively with the fear and move beyond it. Do this as many times as necessary.

Finally you’ll get to a place where you don’t have to look at any scary stuff any more. There isn’t much left that fear can throw at you that you haven’t already faced. If there is a new fear, you’ve strengthened your confidence to deal with it productively. You move beyond fear.

Once fear loses its power over you, your awareness can begin to expand and awaken in ways you could not have imagined. Then you become a light in the world. You become a space-holder, an energy broadcaster with that light for this world’s transformation. If you take action in the world to help in its transformation, that is icing on the cake. I see many inspired to do just that, and that is a joy.

Today I know there are elite groups out there who consider the masses of humanity as a herd to manage, control and use to serve their purposes. They consider us expendable. I accept the possibility, even the probability of technologies out there in the hands of the wealthy and powerful that the mainstream public can’t begin to imagine. These could include technology for control of weather, earthquakes and volcanoes. If such technologies do in fact exist, it is the secrecy they are concealed by that makes them most dangerous. They are most likely wielded by wealthy, powerful groups with a terrifying lack of either conscience or morals. Since the general public is unaware, natural-seeming disasters are accepted as acts of God, not men. Yet I can’t help but feel suspicious when in the wake of tsunamis, earthquakes and hurricanes, thousands or millions of people killed or displaced, the devastated lands are taken over and begin to be developed by corporations for their profit in some way. The displaced people left after the disaster remain displaced, unable to return to where they once lived.

If you are just becoming acquainted with the darker side of our world, then some time spent looking at the depth and breadth of it may be necessary to formulate a complete understanding of it. Having a good grasp of the contextual landscape in which we live is important so we can direct our lives in the best ways possible. I have to wonder today if I had had a full understanding of the kinds of dark and ugly things that go on, would I have been so traumatized by what happened? Certainly it would still have been truly terrible to experience. But if the knowledge that the chances existed to encounter such people, capable of doing such things, had been part of my understanding of the world I lived in, the trauma might not have been so severe, perhaps not severe enough to cause the memory to submerge. In a society that recognizes that such things do occur, one would hope that some kind of support system would be set up to help people deal with the aftermath.

I often wonder if the bubble world we live in, this contrived, matrix-like reality, is in part constructed as it is to leave the people living out their lives within it susceptible to severe trauma. If those who have the arcane knowledge of the dark underworld they have constructed need to use one of these individuals, innocent of such knowledge, then they have someone conditioned to be vulnerable to the kind of trauma they can inflict. Susceptibility to severe trauma would certainly be an asset to groups with an agenda of control.

This is a dark idea and may or may not be true. I would much prefer it was not true, that it is just darkly incidental to such structures and processes. But having learned all I have, I cannot rule out that this is done by diabolical design. I admit the possibility and leave it at that. Just having an understanding of the kinds of dark that operate in the world is a protection from it creeping up on you and paralyzing you with trauma, at least to a degree. Understand it exists as a possibility and then set it aside.

Understanding the kinds of things that go on or can happen is not the same as continually wallowing in them and allowing yourself to get emotionally overwrought with anger or fear. Understanding is simply to keep you from being so severely impacted should such knowledge or experience come your way. I hope to create a network of healing resources for those who have had to deal with extraordinary and severe trauma. I also feel that peer support – being in the company of kindred others – is one of the most powerful healing structures we can create.

I no longer feel any need to dig into every bit of information I can on such possibilities or probabilities. I do not need to examine in detail every new piece of disturbing data that gets thrown in my path, and believe me, plenty gets thrown in my path.

I look at them as briefly as I would eye the weather on the horizon, assessing whether I need to get my umbrella or take shelter in a root cellar… in that present moment. I find it dangerous to project too much doomsday into the world from my own thoughts and emotions laced with fears of the future. The scary possibilities predicted by people who look almost exclusively at the darkest of the dark, set whole groups of mind-egos desperately spinning. They try to plan for every possible contingency, devising a reaction for every possible dire event that could befall them.

I’ve also learned that when I face and make peace with the really big fears, I no longer have to look closely at all the little ones that litter my path anymore. When you’ve faced whatever your mind morbidly manufactures as the worst things that can happen to you, the other stuff becomes insignificant. Annoying or frustrating perhaps, but far more easily dismissed.

Once we acknowledge within ourselves the kinds of dark things that are possible or probable, that is enough. Understand it is there, then dismiss it and turn your full energy and attention to something positive, loving or joyful. We must build bridges of understanding with each other. We must cultivate joy in ourselves if we are to build a better world. We just cannot use contrived joy as some kind of denial defense mechanism.

The truth is, all kinds of things could transpire or happen to any of us at any time. Events that have taken place in the past may indeed have set in motion things that will happen in the future. But what if our positive focus and action in the present could impact our future in a positive manner? I choose to believe it can. And the more of us that collectively sign on to such an endeavor, the better our chances of affecting a positive outcome.

The present moment is the moment of positive action. The present moment, and what we choose to hold in our desire, thought and conscious intention, creates all our subsequent moments.

Truth, Freedom & Responsibility

Just what is freedom? What does it personally mean to you, the reader of this book? What does it mean on a physical level? On a mental or emotional level? What does freedom mean on a spiritual level?

These are not test questions with any definitive or rote answers. These are questions to muse over and wonder about every day. They are contemplative questions to make rich with meaning over the passage of time. When you encounter any way in which you are not free in your life, on whatever level, reclaim your freedom in that area of your life.

Don’t look outside yourself for someone to “give” you freedom. Freedom is your sacred birthright. No one can take it from you. They can only try and compel you surrender it to them.

A sword has been used as a symbol of Truth. Its two edges could equally symbolize freedom and responsibility.

The truth, if we come to know and accept it, will set us free. With ultimate freedom comes ultimate responsibility. Responsibility for the choices we make and how they will affect us, each other and future generations. At any moment of choice, we can turn one way or another… we choose our destinies as much as they choose us. What we choose to do with our lives is all the more precious because of free will. Exercising our free will to be and to choose comes when we have the broadest spectrum of learning, knowing and understanding possible. The true exercise of free will can only come when the mind, heart and spirit are free, when we live, move and breathe in a world of transparency and truth.

We choose incarnations in a human body to rediscover freedom through the “confidence course” of limitations and barriers to it that exist here on Earth. To gain, through all the contrasts of duality that we experience here, a fuller understanding of what freedom truly is. Ultimately, to discover that true freedom lies in rediscovering who we are at the level of consciousness and interconnectivity. We live our material lives on Earth within the unified quantum field of potential that underlies the reality that we have created from our desire, thought and intention – even though we also decided to forget who we are when we come here to more fully participate in our creation.

Keep stepping back in your consciousness. We come into human existence and it becomes our reference point for everything we experience. We become part of religious, political and societal structures and they are added to our reference points for how we view life through these various lenses of belief and judgment. What broader context can you step back and view? Can you honor your human feelings and existence while stepping back further into a cosmic perspective? Can you imagine how extraterrestrials might observe life on Earth, especially with the destruction humanity wreaks on the ecosystem we depend on for life? Can you imagine how it might affect telepathic and telempathic beings to touch minds that hide so much from themselves? Can you go further and imagine yourself a drop of consciousness merging with the universal field of all consciousness, suspended in the quantum wave field of all potential, dreaming dreams of differentiated realities settling into various dimensional densities of energy and vibration and bringing them into “real” manifestation?

It’s my heartfelt wish that all people everywhere can learn to move beyond fear and discover the wonderful and incredible potential that awaits them as free beings.

New Interview on the Lois J. Wetzel Show

At the following link you can listen to a new interview I did with Lois Wetzel, Shaman, Healer, Teacher.  I noticed that my embedded interview was the same as the last one I posted so I made this change.  I’m removing the embedded players because they change content from week to week, and replacing them with links to the appropriate interviews.  If you would like to download the interviews to your computer, click on the link “The Lois J. Wetzel Show” at the top of the interview page and it will take you to her main Blogtalk Radio page where you can scroll down and find download links to the interviews there.  Again, this link below will take you to the interview page to listen online.

Extra Terrestrials, Exopolitics and More with Niara Isley

“Coming from a spiritual standpoint, Niara will be discussing the necessity of facing and moving beyond our fears to allow our consciousness expansion to continue. Also, the law of attraction teachings apply… and doing our shadow work and consciously choosing how we wish to reshape our own lives and our world. While most law of attraction teachers focus on people creating personal wealth, great relationships or other personal desires, they don’t delve into the world of shadow gov’ts, military-industrial complex conspiracy, these are becoming more apparent and transparent over time. This is a gift, they are being exposed so that humanity can more consciously choose – the collective human shadow revealing itself to be transformed. An understanding of how the gov’t-military-industrial complex continually dishes up fear through their controlled media needs to be understood so we can withdraw our vital creative spiritual energy from keeping us focused in their matrix world to envisioning and actively creating a world of love, peace and sustainability for all people. And this may be an important part of demonstrating humanity’s full sentience to ETs for full open contact. “

I want to here express my deep gratitude to Charles, and his wife Mary for traveling to meet me for this interview and the painstaking time and care that they gave me to allow me to get into multiple topics that I consider important around the issues of disclosure, amnesty, extraterrestrial contact and giving spiritual perspectives on all of it.

Special for the 2010 International UFO Congress in my talk: A  part of my experiences never before shared publicly

There is a part of my experiences I have never shared before that I will share with at the UFO Congress in Laughlin this year as a speaker.  If you can make it to this last UFO Congress in Laughlin, NV this February I will be speaking about my experiences, healing and the insights that have flowed from that process in hopes of helping others with that process as well.  I will be there all week and will do my best to make time to meet with people as I can, and Melinda and I will be having a MILAB encounter group on Thursday evening under the guidance of primary facilitator and colleague, Mary Rodwell of ACERN in Australia.

(This is not truly the last UFO Congress, but it will be the last one in Laughlin, NV under Bob Brown’s direction.  It will be reshaped and reborn under Open Minds, who are creating new ways to get the vital word out about the reality of extraterrestrial technology, extraterrestrials themselves, helping to further disclosure and contact for the future.  Open Minds:  http://www.openminds.tv/ )

My Book-in-Work:

I am working on a book called, “Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light” with a projected completion date by June of 2010.  Far better than radio interviews and discussions where important information comes out piecemeal in sound bites, this book is my story of how I came into this life, abductions/contacts beginning at a very early age, how they may have shaped and influenced my life, how I ended up in the military and what happened to me there.  It is about my own journey for meaning and healing and deeper self-discovery, and how my early connection to my own spirituality became the container for all of it and the lens through which I finally healed and made peace with it all.

Again, thank you so much for tuning in, and I’m sorry I couldn’t be there for you as much as I had hoped to me.  I also so appreciate Melinda for doing her best to fill in material for me when I couldn’t be on any more.  Not to worry, more interviews are up-coming.

Many Blessings,

Niara
