Alien Encounters

First of all with the evolution of Ufology and its terms, it is important that we define what an alien encounters are. Quick history lesson; back in 1972 a guy named J. Allen Hynek coined the term close encounter. This is an event in which the person witnesses a flying object. There is also a close encounter of the second kind (CE2), which is objects that have been physically influenced by a UFO; like a crop circle. A close encounter of the third kind (CE3) is when the observer comes into contact with extraterrestrial beings.

Nowadays we use more descriptive terms like alien encounters, or abductions, rather than semi-vague terms. People still use the Hynek system and have even expanded on it. Unfortunately, it’s more difficult to attach an idea to a number than a phrase. To save time I won’t go into the additional four kinds of encounters that there are. If you would like to read up on the others, head over to Wikipedia, and look up close encounters.

Alright, semantics aside, with UFO sightings up 67 percent within the last 3 years, you can bet that alien encounters have increased as well. Steven M. Greer is the founder of CSETI (Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence) teaches others how to supposedly how to come in contact with aliens. I can’t vouch for this, because I have never attended a CSETI course. If anyone out there reading this has, please get in touch with me!

Aside from Dr. Greer’s report, alien encounters are very rare. Once again if anyone has any interesting stories to share, let me know. The ones that do get reported are probably only a fraction of the actual number. Even if people have what they feel is a legitimate E.T. experience, they’re not going to run out and tell people. This may not be the case for everyone, but ask yourself if an alien appeared in front of you right now, would you be itching to tell the first person you saw.

If you want to get into it even deeper, there is a lady named Delores Cannon who uses hypnosis in lots of interesting ways. Trust me if you’ve never heard of her you’re going to want to check out some YouTube videos. She works with much deeper levels of hypnosis than most hypnotherapists. She often gets clients that have alien encounters, with no memory or inkling of anything that has happened. At best the only thing the individual can notice is missing time, or a sudden gap in memory. Other than the occasional glitch in the Matrix, people have no idea about coming in contact with E.T.’s

With all the increase in UFOs and related subjects in the last few years, you’re bound to get some fake stories mixed in with the actual ones. Use your head and you’ll easily be able to weed out the made up alien encounters, from the real ones. This is an area that attracts a lot of attention seekers and crazies. So, do your homework on the information source before you believe anything that you read.

I hope that you liked reading this article and if you’re into aliens and things like that, drop me a line. I love talking about this stuff.

Another interesting article. Its funny how UFOs sighting have exponentially exploded on YouTube, to the point where they become a normal thing for some communities. Now organic alien sightings... that's a gold mine to any curious paranormal researcher.

Hey thanks for the comment! Yeah I know what you're saying. I'm no 'the world is going to end in 2012' (although I do joke and ever time we experience intense weather, I like to mumble 2012 to my friends) but I DO think that things are speeding up and getting ready for something big. I also think that the aliens are here to watch us in this process, that's why there is an increase in UFO sightings. I don't know call me weird but I really like the idea of something amazing happening for us ascending to a higher level of consciousness. Glad you liked the article:)
