As a child of the 60s, I watched Lost in Space and became insatiably curious about what might exist beyond planet Earth. I didn’t have a “filter” then; so, in my imaginative mind, space travel and contact with beings from other planets was quite possible.
My inquisitiveness about the cosmos naturally expanded when man landed on the moon in 1969. I was eight years old and watched on our small, black-and-white TV as astronauts bounced on the moon and staked an American flag on it’s surface. I vividly recall that I went out that night with my Dad, and we looked for the flag through the lens of my new, high-powered telescope. Of course, we couldn’t see it on the crescent moon, but we talked about how mysterious the universe is and wondered if intelligent life existed elsewhere.
Just a year before the lunar landing, my Dad and I watched the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey at our local drive-in theater, which in combination with the subsequent Apollo missions created quite a depth of contemplation in the mind of a young, impressionable girl. Add to that the popularity of a new show called Star Trek, as well as comic favorites such as, Superman, and you can understand my fascination with space, other planets, and alien life.
For the most part, through the entertainment mediums my parents would allow me to experience, aliens never came to Earth. Space explorers always encountered them out there. So, the thought never entered my mind that aliens would come to Earth. Clearly, my parents hadn’t told me about War of the Worlds, which premiered seven years before I was born, or enlightened me about the Roswell incident.
I can understand that they wouldn’t have told me such a thing. I had been traumatized in childhood by relentless night terrors, and I’m sure they didn’t want to feed my imagination any further. Surely, accounts of alien abduction would have sent me over the edge. That’s why I probably never heard anything about “the Greys,” until I was a teenager.
I don’t remember how I found out about these malevolent creatures from another planet, but I remember being frightened to the core. At that point, fearful that I’d be abducted if I even entertained the thought, I absolutely refused to engage in any conversation about aliens or flying saucers. I just blocked out the entire subject for years.
But, curiosity eventually got the best of me. It always does. It’s because I need to understand the world I live in, and denial interferes with that understanding.
So, at some point, I decided to take this “Grey” bull by the horns and figure it out for myself. I immersed myself in books like, Communion, never missed an episode of The X Files, and took mental notes when viewing shows like, Unsolved Mysteries and In Search Of , which often featured accounts of alien abduction. My goal was to find out: Who are these aliens? Where do they come from? Why are they doing what they’re doing? And, why hasn’t someone stopped them? About that time, I also forced myself to watch the spine-chilling movie, Fire in the Sky. But, I was also delighted in seeing ET and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which had more of an influence on me than I realized at the time.
And, as they say, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
Many years into my personal research project I came across information that relieved my fear of the Greys. I don’t remember how I received the information–it could have been a website or a New Age book. I don’t know. But, I vividly remember the feeling of relief that surfaced and the resonance I felt with the conclusion drawn, although the information revealed that Greys really do exist.
A long time ago this species of extraterrestrial being, supposedly from Zeta Reticuli, had been given permission by the Galactic Federation (a kind of intergalactic police force that maintains harmony amongst the many galaxies of the universe) to come to Earth to study human behavior, genetics, and our environment. However, as the Greys continued to abduct, traumatize, and do invasive medical testing on humans, the Galactic Federation prohibited them from having any contact with the planet or its Earthlings. Evidently, this banishment happened shortly before the new millennium began.
I don’t know if this is true or if I just want it to be true. So, I measured this information with personal truth meter, which is a very specific feeling I get in my throat–it’s weird, I know, but it’s always accurate–and I ascertained that this information, although simplistic in nature, was true. But, if it’s true, then why do we continue to see UFOs? It happens all over the world. Millions of people witness all sorts of unidentified flying objects. Who is this? What do they want? Are they malevolent like the Greys or benevolent beings from a far-away star system?
Finding an answer is very important to me because I’ve had three distinct, relatively-recent UFO experiences, and I NEED to understand why.
My first experience took place in 1999, when my husband and I stayed in a cabin at Lost Maples State Park in Vanderpool, Texas. There was nothing near this cabin for miles and miles, except for beautiful maples trees that were turning the most brilliant shades of gold and red. Not even ambient light reached our remote location.
The autumn evening was so beautiful that we decided to spend it together in a hammock right outside the cabin. I had never been in such an isolated place before and was in awe of the millions of stars that I never knew existed. We cuddled in the hammock hoping to see some shooting stars, and that’s when we saw it.
Two objects that looked like white, sparkling stars were darting from way over there to way over here with such speed that we knew it wasn’t commercial aircraft, a satellite, or even a meteor. Actually, it appeared that these two objects were playing a game of tag with each other. At first, it was fascinating to watch. Then, I remembered all the stories of people who had been abducted from isolated places, and I got really scared. Needless to say, we went inside for the rest of the evening.
Then, in 2006, I heard a low rumble outside my house. I was in the room furthest from the front of the house, when I heard what I thought was a fire engine going down our street. Since we live around the corner from the fire station, this was commonplace. The fire engine driver usually switches gears about the time they reach my house, which makes this low rumbling noise. It’s always brief, so it caught my attention when the rumble didn’t stop. I was in the living room watching television with my daughter, who was working on her laptop, and I got up to investigate. When I opened the door, I didn’t see any kind vehicle on the street. I followed the sound, which now seemed to be coming from up above. Honestly, I expected to see a plane or far-away helicopter. But what I saw was not of this world. Right above me, only slightly higher that the roof and tree lines was a HUGE, black, triangular-shaped THING with red lights at each point. It blocked out all the stars behind it, so I got a pretty good idea of its size, which I estimate to be that of a football field.
I frantically called for my daughter. She said, “What is it, I’m in the middle of something?” I yelled, “Come quick!” Again, she said, “What is it?” By the time she arrived on the front porch, the thing had passed over our house and was out of sight. What was it? Who was it? I just don’t know.
The funny thing is, seeing the black triangle thing didn’t alarm me like the UFOs had at the cabin. Actually, I was filled with a kind of nervous excitement–you know, like being on a roller coaster and getting excited and scared at the same time, right before the first big drop. The only unfortunate thing about this experience is that no else saw what I saw, not even one neighbor. I was simply left bewildered.
Then, on December 19, 2009, I went to bed around midnight after a joyous birthday celebration with my family. As I lay in bed looking out my window, expressing gratitude to God for my beautiful life, I saw an orange orb. I assumed it was the light from an airplane. But, then, another orange orb came into view. And I thought, “Oh my God, those two planes are going to crash!” Then, I saw another orange orb, then another, until there were five orbs traveling at great speed in the direction of my house. It appeared they were maintaining some kind of formation, until one orb suddenly jerked away. Then, another orb joined it, and they seemed to be playing a game.
I jumped from my bed and ran down the stairs to go outside for an unobstructed view–yes, in bare feet and a nightgown in the dead of winter. My husband and daughter, who were downstairs watching television, asked where I was going in such a rush. All I could say was, “Come quick!” They soon joined me on the driveway. I’m so glad that there were other people witnessing this because I might have questioned my own sanity. We watched for a good half hour, as these orange orbs went in and out of formation, until we couldn’t see them any more.
The next day I thought for sure there would be something in the news about it. But there wasn’t. I put a post on Facebook asking if anyone else had seen it, but no one had. I couldn’t understand this. No one else in the entire city of Austin saw the orbs?! Thank goodness for Google. I searched “orange orb UFOs” and found YouTube footage from others who had witnessed something similar in locations around the world. There’s even a Facebook page that tracks these orange orb sightings. However, there isn’t any explanation of what it is, who it is, and why so many people around the globe are seeing them.
This disturbs my mind, which needs answers. But, I think I might have found an explanation.
I am now deep in the 25th year of my spiritual, consciousness-awakening experience, and have had access to many great teachers. From these teachers, I have connected the cosmic dots and have come up with an explanation that suits my inquisitive mind.
It would take pages and pages to explain how I came up with my hypothesis, but I can do that if anyone wants to know. The point I’m trying to make with this blog post is to share information that I think will be useful in the very near future–like next week, for example.
Whether it’s next week or by the end of 2011, I believe that we will finally come to understand that the UFOs that we’ve been seeing in the skies since the year 2001 are benevolent beings from other star systems, who have been playfully making their existence known.
From my understanding, they are aware of our collective, conscious fear of extraterrestrial invasion, which has been perpetuated by our government, the media, and the entertainment industry since the 1950s. And, the last thing they want to do is promote more fear, especially because, in actuality, they are here to help us at this pivotal, unprecedented moment in human history–The Great Shift in Consciousness.
You see, Earth is a kind of school. It’s the Harvard of the universe. From what I understand, many star beings (or spirits from Heaven, as we would refer to them from a religious point of view) want to incarnate as human beings in this hyper-challenging learning environment, as a means to more fully evolve as spiritual beings.
If granted the opportunity by our Creator to come to Earth, it is done with complete amnesia of the wisdom that we as spirit beings possess. We are, therefore, born into dense, third-dimensional energy, where we forget our divinity, our power to create, and our knowledge of the universe and all the life forms that exist beyond our atmosphere. We choose to live in a world of duality that allows for the illusion that we are separate entities, fully disconnected from each other as individuals, nations, planets, and galaxies.
Therein, lies the ultimate spiritual goal–to RE-MEMBER.
For aeons, we have not remembered. That is why there have been thousands of wars, never-ending oppression, patriarchal inequality, divisive disharmony amongst religions, races, and creeds, as well as fear of alien invaders. However, the process of remembering our ONENESS–the great shift in consciousness–has been slowly but surely spreading across the planet. It began in the 1960s with the hippie’s peace and love movement and was accelerated by the 1987 Harmonic Convergence. This mass awakening has now reached the tipping point. It can no longer be stopped. And, this is good news.
This tipping point is what allows benevolent beings (highly-intelligent life forms acting on behalf of our Creator) to answer our calls for assistance, which we’ve sent for ages to God/the Heavens/the Angelic Realm/the Universe–whatever/whoever you call it, it’s all one in the same. Through communication with this intelligent life we will be able to understand the truth of our distant past, which will coincide with what the ancient Sumerians recorded, explain what’s written in the Bible about giants and chariots of fire, and even decode messages that have been hidden in art, such as the Madonna and Saint Giovannio. Not only can these beings illuminate our past, but they can also shows us what is taking place in the present, which is preventing us from re-membering our divinity and our power to create.
With their loving assistance, we will be able to heal the Earth that we’ve brought to the brink of destruction. We will be able to create peace among nations and truly become a global family. We will be able to release all our fear, which was created by the duality of the 3rd dimension, and return to a state of unconditional love, where Christ-consciousness can fully fill our hearts.
Isn’t this the ultimate goal of all religions?
I believe we will be returning to Heaven–to God–by bringing heaven to Earth–as above, so below. To me, this is what the Bible is referring to when it describes the second coming of Christ. I believe He will first arrive through our hearts. This Christ-consciousness in our hearts will serve the same purpose as the palm fronds that were placed on Christ’s path as he entered Jerusalem. It will herald our re-birth. With this illumination we will be able to create a new Eden, just like the Lord’s Prayer insinuates: “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed by thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. . .”
You see, it’s like I’ve been saying for years–it’s not science OR religion. It’s both. In understanding the science of the cosmos combined with wisdom of the spiritual realm, we can finally see how the pieces fit together and, once and for all, know who we are and why we’re here. We will finally understand the multiple dimensions of our universe, all the divine beings that exist, and how we can work together to create infinite peace and love.
That’s my hypothesis.
I believe my exposure to and curiosity about the cosmos, as well as my lifelong religious and spiritual quest, has led me to this moment in time. The influence of religion, Lost in Space, the Apollo missions, the 1960s peace movement, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, my own UFO experiences, and even my latest celebrity crush on particle physicist, Brian Cox, is not simply coincidental. It all led me to sharing this message with you right now.
I believe we will be introduced to some of the benevolent beings very soon. Please don’t be afraid when this happens. Listen to them with your heart, and YOU will KNOW why they are here. After all, we called them with our pleas for peace. They are as much God’s children as you and I.
And, although I don’t want to mention much about this, I do want to say briefly that there are those who will not want this shift in consciousness to take place. There is nothing they can do to stop it, but they will try. They will use fear that has been buried deep within the collective psyche just for this purpose–to maintain their control over the masses.
I believe this is the battle between good and evil, which is described in the Book of Revelations. And I believe this battle is already taking place. I conjecture that we will soon learn that the anti-Christ isn’t one person. The anti-Christ is a collective quality that permeates every facet of our existence on Earth. This anti-Christ quality exists wherever there is a lack of love. This is what we will understand from the evolved beings. Again, when they speak, I ask you to listen from your heart. You will be able to distinguish who is here to harm and who is here to help.
I believe we all incarnated at this monumental moment in history to play a very important role in the ascension of humanity and our planet. We each possess the power to be the change we wish to see in the world, and NOW is our moment of truth. One day our grandchildren and their children’s children will read about this moment in history and will feel tremendous awe and gratitude at the courage, wisdom, and leap of faith we had, which took humanity out of the true dark ages and into the eternal light.
I’m excited beyond what words can describe to be on this magnificent journey, and I am most honored to be creating the New Earth with YOU.
Peace and love,
Sherri Swanson Defesche
