The Shift of the Ages: The Extraterrestrial Factor

I begin with two quotes from IONS founder and Apollo 14 astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, Ph.D. Aeronautics, MIT, and the 6th man to walk on the moon:

“My interest basically is what’s the nature of the universe we live in? What is our relationship to the larger reality? If UFOs are a part of the larger reality and we are denying it, that to me is unconscionable."

“Yes, there have been ET visitations. There have been crashed craft. There have been material and bodies recovered. There has been a certain amount of reverse engineering that has allowed some of these craft, or some components, to be duplicated. And there is some group of people that may or may not be associated with government at this point, but certainly were at one time, that have this knowledge. They have been attempting to conceal this knowledge or not permit it to be widely disseminated. Perhaps a large part of the activity that's classified as UFO abductions may very well not be due to ET activity at all. I would suspect if any is due to ET activity, it is a rather small part. A larger portion is due to human activity in a very clandestine fashion. People in high level government have very, very little, if any, valid information about this. Most have no more knowledge than the man in the street. [As to] the question, “How could it be kept secret?” It hasn’t been kept secret. It’s been there all along. But it has been the subject of disinformation in order to deflect attention and create confusion so the truth doesn’t come out. I believe it is a very important effort that we get Congressional oversight of all this. But so far that hasn’t happened.”

Several years ago I watched a Discovery Channel documentary, “Humans: Who Are We?” It traced the evolution of humanity from our distant past, and at the end, it extrapolated into our future, wondering what kind of adaptations would happen in the human race as it evolved in environments on other worlds we would someday colonize. So, even in this documentary, the scientists who helped create it surmised that someday humanity would travel to, colonize, or seed other worlds with life like our own.

If Terran humanity dreams of going into space, colonizing other worlds, why is it so hard to imagine—and even more, seriously investigate—that this has already happened… that we ourselves were colonized or seeded here by other travelers, by other versions of galactic humanoid life?

Some people have difficulty with the notion that humanity is not some kind of evolutionary culmination or pinnacle of development. Some people, if they could entertain the idea of extraterrestrials seriously, would shun contact or help from extraterrestrials, just because they are different or not of Earth… perhaps because they would be evidence incontrovertible that sentient Terran humanity is not as special or unique as many of us would like to think, or have been taught to think our whole lives, by history, science and religion.

The Star Trek universe that is so popular on television and at the movies for decades now, has taught us about a principle of non-interference, their Prime Directive, that those evolved, space-faring races of moral integrity would allow individual worlds to evolve and develop on their own until such point as they begin moving out into space, then contact them and invite them to join their ‘Federation’. The very use of the metaphor of a science ‘fiction’ show to illustrate my point may draw some ridicule as people point out that I’m a dreamer who would like real life to imitate an idealized television or movie fantasy.

But for those of us who have experienced abduction or contact by extraterrestrials, or have been insiders and witnesses to extraterrestrial contact or technology kept secret by a shadow government within a government over the last 60+ years, extraterrestrials and their extremely advanced technology and science are not in any way a fiction. They are a reality. One that has been suppressed by individuals and groups whose moral integrity is non-existent, whose only desire has been to keep secret this contact and technology for their own purposes of power, control and personal profit, as bits and pieces of this technology have been leaked out to the public, such as laser and microchip technology. Oil corporations have been allowed to continue an energy stranglehold on our planet, the dwindling and costly-to-obtain oil supply ever-increasing in price, forcing up the cost of all goods and services because of the cost of the energy required to move and provide them. All this going on while other free energy extraterrestrial technologies have been researched and available to replace oil and avert an environmental catastrophe, possibly available from at least the 1960s. Even when humans have come up with ways and solutions to expand and make more efficient the burning of fossil fuels, these have been suppressed as well. The powerful interests that control the energy and the cost of that energy to move goods and provide services that humanity has become dependent on have not allowed their energy monopoly to be in any way threatened. They sit on top of this pyramid, and intend to remain there.

One doesn’t have to look at the extraterrestrial factor these days to see the greed, control and power-mongering in government, wars created for political convenience for those who have seized the global power of the U.S. It is more than ever transparent to any thinking person that this is about who will control the remaining oil reserves on the planet, keep power and stay on top the pyramid. However, without a good grasp of the extraterrestrial factor and the shadow government that has kept secret and exploited extraterrestrial technology in their own ways, mainstream society does not have, and cannot have a complete and whole picture of the problem. And until we have this complete grasp of the problem of oil and the secrecy around the power that keeps it in place, those of us who want to meet the challenges of environmental protection and restoration and find new energy solutions, may find ourselves taking swings at phantoms that sit just out of our reach that we can’t, or refuse—to see. I don’t see how we, as human beings of conscience and integrity, can solve a problem that we don’t fully understand the deepest root causes of.

Individually, many of us who have made our path a spiritual one through life know that often it is a crisis of consciousness, an extreme challenge or threat that we face that opens us to even more depth, more compassion and more understanding of our own spiritual natures, expanding our understanding of the spiritual universe and our places in it. As the sciences push deeper into the mysteries of quantum mechanics, string theory and the existence of other dimensions, they are met by the sages and teachers of spirituality and the true nature of reality who understood this all along throughout the ages.

Just as we have individual challenges, crises— things that open up our awareness and understanding— so is humanity as a collective experiencing this challenge and opportunity to expand our consciousness, now. We have created this crisis for ourselves and now we must resolve it, as a collective.

On one hand, if we look at reality in an objective, empirical way, we see good guys and bad guys in this drama unfolding on Earth at this time. Television, movies and the media give us unending examples of good versus evil, good people finally driven to fight for their rights to live, be free and have a good life. War is still the paradigm handed to us.

But what if there is another choice? What if we choose to see past the things that divide us and choose unity and understanding, community and compassion over war? What if we choose not to fight at all? The path of a spiritual warrior is to ever look within at the duality inside himself or herself, ever deeper, seeing to the heart of, the truth of a situation… and to choose the way of peace, understanding and compassion. This is not always an easy path when we would rather jump to the conclusion that something is bad and must be fought against. That is why the term, spiritual warrior applies. We must all cultivate our own inner spiritual warriors to undertake the often difficult path to the core of truth, understanding and compassion, rather than leaping into a path of action that on the surface seems just, but does not see to the core. The spiritual warrior looks within to the deepest truth and undertakes to shift his perspective and face his or her own shadow to create change in the outer world.

I believe that part of the crisis in consciousness for the collective of humanity at this time is to look inward collectively and heal our collective humanity and consciousness from within, individual by individual, reaching out to each other, teaching each other, facing our collective shadow that has created our current human environmental/societal/political mess. It’s easy to point fingers outside ourselves and get angry at the government, the oil corporations. Harder to look at how we are complicit in the way the world is today. But we are. Our collective unconscious behavior, our refusal to look at the collective human shadow in how it’s reflected in the behavior of our governments, societal institutions and corporate entities has created this collective crisis of consciousness.

People have labeled as conspiracy theory that which they are too afraid to look at and admit goes on in the world, and those whose power is tied up in keeping their own secrets have encouraged this ridicule and disbelief. We have been sold a version of reality that is not true and does not serve us any more— if it ever did. But how can people change things if they don’t even know what is really happening beneath the apparent surface of their reality? It takes the will and the courage to look and learn. A good place to start is the Transformation Team at

The truth is that we need to scrutinize and question the debt-based system of money and finance in this world which allows the rich to get richer and the poor, poorer all over the world. We need to scrutinize and question why we are addicted to oil and take responsibility for that addiction, how we accepted the promise of cheap energy to allow suburban sprawl to take over our farmlands and make us dependent on distant factory farms for food. We need to take responsibility for allowing our government to institute the National Security Act of 1947 – no accident that it was the same year as the Roswell UFO crash – that allowed an impenetrable curtain of secrecy in our country behind which every power-grabbing individual or group could hide any and every dirty secret that they could pin to the banner of “national security”, free from any legal means to investigate or prosecute abuses of people, places or rights. We need to face the fact that our government imported the Nazi Third Reich scientists who experimented and tortured thousands of Jews in concentration camps because they wanted to know the secrets these Nazi scientists had learned about the breaking points of human minds and physical endurance and how they could be programmed, like Manchurian candidates. (Google “Project Paperclip.) Mind control is one of the most frightening and difficult to acknowledge parts of the collective human unconscious, but it does go on, in this country and around the world, including every kind of pre-meditated torture and sexual abuse imaginable, and perhaps forms of abuse that some good people can’t even imagine. And like in a family where incest is going on, fear and avoidance of looking at the truth and doing something about it allows it to go on, allows people to continue to be harmed and controlled in horrific ways. It is when we don’t look, refuse to look and to see that the dark, shadowy and disowned parts of the collective human psyche have broken off and taken on a life of their own that we become an accessory to those shadow factions and their acting out.

To look at all the shadow parts of humanity and to become aware of them can be overwhelming at first. From my own experience, I know that it is best to allow the whole tide of feelings and emotions to wash over one, from the standpoint of the spiritual warrior, seeking the core of truth and understanding. Weep tears if you must. Feel rage if that comes up. Feeling fear about it all can be the most difficult to face. But as many sages have taught us, that which we fear to look at in our lives, controls our lives. Allow the feelings and emotions to wash over you without stopping its flow until it spends itself and you can take a deep breath and let the energy go on the outbreath. And all grief, rage and fear do spend themselves and run down. They are energies that, if opened to, cannot sustain themselves over time— unless they are unacknowledged, repressed and not felt to completion.

I have come to intuit and believe deeply that spiritually evolved and benevolent extraterrestrials have been watching over Earth for a long time. It is the unresolved collective human shadow that has kept them for the most part out of sight and beyond open contact. If you can imagine races of beings that are peace-loving, cooperative, telepathic, tel-empathic, how can they risk that kind of contact with a species who still carries so much repressed and unacknowledged shadow material that perpetuates misery and suffering on our planet? They know in certainty what we have begun to learn in recent decades—that we are responsible for the acting out of our disowned shadow natures, individually and collectively. They have been waiting for us to grow up. They want contact. They want us to know them. They want us to know our true heritage as children of the Star Nations and to join them as mature, sentient spiritual beings. And if we can do this, then we may gain access to resources that could help solve our current environmental crisis beyond what we are able to achieve on our own.

Imagine two parents, arms outstretched as their toddler takes his or her first steps, reaching for those loving hands. This is the analogy I see as humanity stumbles forward, teetering and trying to gain balance as it attains the equilibrium to take those beginning steps to touch the hands of our galactic parents in friendship and cooperation. The only way the balance and equilibrium is attained is through embracing peace within our individual hearts, clearing out any dark places in ourselves that would prevent peace. When we do this we are expanding our vision and our consciousness, raising our vibrations and reaching the common energetic ground upon which the meeting of Earth humanity and galactic humanity can take place.

With the incidence of extraterrestrial craft sightings increasing exponentially in recent times and being more and more widely shared and acknowledged, this is evidence that the great Shift of human consciousness is underway, and significant numbers of us are beginning to mature as a species. The extraterrestrials have been waiting for us to meet them halfway, to help to create the common energetic ground in which contact can occur. They have not been able to risk lowering their vibrations to encounter us before now, but as we raise our vibrations through clearing our shadow material and embracing truth, love, peace, understanding and compassion, we help to create that common energetic ground upon which we can meet.

Be Well, and Many Blessings to you,
