Searching….Finding

We know we are different.  We know science claims it has no answers.  And so, those of us with Rh Negative Blood search.

We each came to the realization of our uniqueness in various ways.  I knew I was somehow different when I was just a small child and had an out of body experience…and I told no one.  And later when I experienced episodes of sleep paralysis as a teenager…I told no one.   And when I saw the UFO in the night sky zooming in my direction, I told no one except for my mother who was with me and witnessed the same thing.  Yet we told no one, not even the members of our family.

It wasn’t until I gave birth to my daughter decades ago that I realized that I had Rh-Negative Blood.  At that time I didn’t realize how rare it was.  Over the years I had been drawn to all things metaphysical.  I was searching, searching for some unnamed something.  And then one day the words “in our image” jumped off the page as I was reading Genesis 1:26.  And then the real search began.  I was a woman possessed.  It was like putting a puzzle together without all the pieces.  Out of body experience…sleep paralysis…UFO….Rh Negative Blood….in our image.

I knew that what I was finding and what I was thinking needed to be written down and shared. This time I wanted to tell everyone!  I wanted it to be easy to read, entertaining in fact, and yet  contain the information I had found and the conclusions that I had reached.  And so I wrote my first novel “In Our Image” and its sequel “Abode of the Clouds”, all the while continuing to search. 

I can report that I have found.  I have found many, many of you who are like me.  Those of us with Rh Negative Blood seem to be drawn together in our search.   My path crosses with Rh Negative individuals quite frequently.  It should no longer surprise me, and yet it does.  For example, a woman was interested in the metaphysical attributes of gemstones and crystals and that interest brought us together.  She then bought my books and I received the following email from her:

“Just wanted to let you know that I sat down and read “In Our Image” it was really a good book. I finished it that night. I have found the subject of UFO’s interesting since I was a little kid. I have seen several in my life time. I have had two out of body experiences and I am RH-. Like the ladies say in book two (I am reding it now) “Weird”.”

Well, it was “weird” because I was unaware that she had an interest in UFO’s, or had out of body experiences, or was Rh Negative.  But the Universe brought us together, just as it is bringing many of us together to share our thoughts and knowledge as we search.

Rh Negative Blood Attributes?

Elsewhere in this blog I have discussed having seen a UFO, having an out-of-body experience, and experiencing episodes of night paralysis.  Are these incidents associated with having Rh negative blood?  Have other of you readers with Rh negative blood  had similar situations?  If so, please share your experiences and I’ll post your comments.

Another thing which has intrigued me is the power of the mind.  When I saw a UFO decades ago, and stood there staring at it, watching it make its slow path across the sky, I felt the beings controlling it knew I was watching it.  They had picked up telepathically on my observation of them.  I have had an intense interest in the subconscious mind ever since. 

Following is an except from my novel, “Abode of the Clouds”, relating to mind power:

“Well, as promised yesterday, today’s main topic is the power of the mind.  It was one of the most important of Christ’s messages.  I’ve marked the bible so I can read some of the verses to you.”

We watched as he opened the first page he had marked, and listened to him read:

“Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

He continued with the remander:

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea’ and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

“If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, ‘Remove hence to yonder place’ and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”

“Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen.”

“All things are possible to him who believes.”

The following verse about Jesus walking on water is significant because Jesus is telling Peter that if he had faith in his own abilities and did not doubt, he could walk on water:

“But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.  And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.  And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, ‘It is a spirit’ and they cried out for fear. 

But straightway Jesus spoke unto them, saying, ‘Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid’. And Peter answered him and said, ‘Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water’. And he said, ‘Come’. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, ‘Lord, save me’. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, ‘O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?’”

“That first verse, however, bears repeating,” Russell continued.  ‘Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.’  Believe that you have already received it.  Believe that is yours now, not some point in the future, but right now.

“I know this is extremely difficult to do.  You’re asking your subconscious mind to believe that you have something when your conscious mind is telling you that you don’t.  But it’s the subconscious mind that is really in control, not the conscious mind.  The subconscious mind keeps our heart beating and our blood flowing.  It contains all of our memories.  It controls our emotions.  Will-power is part of your conscious mind and it’s usually a battle to win with will-power because it’s fighting your subconscious which is vastly stronger.  Your habits are controlled by your subconscious mind.

“Your subconscious mind, however, can be programmed through repetition.  Once you consciously do something or say something over and over again, it becomes absorbed by the subconscious.  I’m sure you all can relate to driving your car and arriving at your destination only to think to yourself, ‘How did I get here?  I don’t even remember driving I was so lost in thought.”  Your subconscious mind was doing the driving.  You didn’t have to consciously think about turning here or turning there, stopping at red lights and so forth because you were on automatic pilot, your subconscious mind.  Through driving every day for months and years, that repetition was accepted by the subconscious and you no longer need to have your conscious mind in control at times when you drive.  However, if some emergency arose as you were driving, your conscious mind would immediately snap back in control.

“Have you ever experienced something being ‘on the tip of your tongue’?  For example, the name of an actor in a certain movie?  You work and work trying to remember the name, and it just won’t come to you.  Then you put it out of your mind and several hours later the name pops into your conscious mind.  That is your subconscious at work.  You aren’t even aware that it is working on retrieving the answer, and it provides you with the answer when you are no longer consciously thinking about it. 

“What messages are we sending to ourselves, sending to our subconscious mind, day after day year after year?  Whatever they are, those messages have created your world.

“Our minds are going continually, even when we sleep.   All kinds of thoughts pop in and out.  Do we ever think about controlling those thoughts?  I know that’s not easy.  Have you ever tried to meditate?  Can you really clear your mind of thought?

“How do we communicate with our subconscious mind?” I asked.

“One way would be through hypnosis or self-hypnosis,” Russell responded.

“Hypnosis?  Isn’t that all just a bunch of hooey?” Joshua asked.

“No, it isn’t.  Hypnosis is a state of restful alertness during which an individual has a heightened sense of concentration.  During our waking hours we are in the beta state, and when we are in a deep sleep we are in the delta state.  In between those two states are the alpha and theta and these are the states to which a hypnotist will bring us prior to imparting hypnotic suggestions. 

“Just before we fall asleep at night and just before we are fully awake in the morning we are in the alpha state.  That is the time when we can speak to our subconscious directly.  What we are looking to accomplish, our goals, should be repeated over and over during this relatively short period of time.  These goals should be positively stated and phrased in the present tense, as if you already have attained them.  For example ‘I am vibrantly healthy’ instead of ‘I will not catch the flu’.  As you repeat your goal or goals, visualize what you state.  Do this faithfully every morning and every night and you will achieve your goals.  And should you wake up during the night, take that opportunity to repeat your goals to yourself then as well.

“The subconscious mind is not a part of your brain, it is actually located in your solar plexus and through your etheric cord it is actually connected to the Universal Mind.  Wisdom and power are available to you through your subconscious, and this was an important part of the teaching of Jesus.

“Jesus’ message was love and the power of belief.  I took the liberty of grabbing the dictionary before I came out here, as I wanted to read the definition of ‘belief’ to you.  I have it marked.”

Russell opened the dictionary to the marked page and read:

“Belief:  ‘A state or habit of mind in which confidence or trust is placed in some person or thing; a conviction of the truth of some statement or the reality of some being or phenomenon’.  It’s the ‘state or habit of mind’ that I wanted to bring to your attention.  Jesus wasn’t talking about belief in himself or his ‘father’.  He was talking about belief in ourselves.  He was talking about the incredible power of our minds.  He wanted us to believe that anything was possible.  He didn’t want us to fear.

“Fear is the tool of the beings of darkness.  It produces nothing but negative energy.  Thoughts are energies.  They can vibrate on both high and low levels.  What we send out comes back to us on the same vibrational level.  The fear that we feel and the negative thoughts that accompany it produce more of the same.

“If we worry about something and think about it constantly, then we are drawing it to ourselves and it will eventually manifest.  Our thoughts are waves of energy and they vibrate at a certain energy level.  Once released, they link with other similar energy waves and come back to us reinforced.  It’s similar to a radio frequency.  If we set our radio to a certain frequency, it is impossible to receive at another frequency.  We attract vibrations at the same energy level that we send out.

“Negative thoughts or energies are dense and are difficult for the body to process and release.  They can become blocked and the stagnant negative energy can produce a harmful effect, such as ‘dis-ease’.

“On the other hand, if we are thinking positive thoughts and believe that we have received what we have asked for, those thoughts vibrate at a higher level or frequency and also return to us in a positive manner.

“Take a moment to think about what we see on television for the most part.  If you’re watching the news, it’s usually bad news being reported.  If it’s drama, it’s usually blood and gore or greed that are the major topics.  If it’s comedy, it’s usually mindless drivel.  Even if it’s the weather, it seems like they’re trying to frighten us by blowing many impending storms way out of proportion.

“And while I’m on the topic of television, I’m going to ask you one thing.  Don’t let your children watch television.  In addition to teaching the children fear, which is not inherently within them, they are also indoctrinated on how to think.  They are taught a materialistic mindset.  They are also taught what kind of behavior is acceptable and how to judge.”

“What about educational programs?  Aren’t the children allowed to watch them?” Jane asked.

“No.  There are subliminal messages programmed into even the supposedly most benign, informative shows.  The media is controlled by the beings of darkness.  Television is their mouthpiece and the great majority of the world’s population has access to television.”

“Does that mean that we adults shouldn’t be watching television?” Jane asked.

“Don’t watch it when the children can see or hear it, and when you do watch it, be very selective about what you watch.”

“I still remember that morning we turned on the TV to hear the news that UFOs were reported to have been seen around the world overnight.  How thrilling that was.”

“Yes, I’m sure it was.  But that was a very rare occurrence, was it not?” Russell asked.

“It was probably the only thing of value that I’ve seen on that TV set in decades,” Alex muttered.  “And what Russell said about television being the mouthpiece of the beings of darkness really rings true with me.  How ingenious of them; we welcome the devil, the father of all lies, into our homes with open arms.”

“Not to change the subject,” Jennifer interjected, “but do you know how to hypnotize people?” she asked Russell.

“Yes.  Why?  Do you want to be hypnotized?”

“I do!” I shouted.

“Me, too!” echoed Jane.

It was quickly evident that we all wanted to be hypnotized, and Russell said he would conduct a guided imagery group hypnosis.

 “Before I start, however, I want to explain the importance of deep breathing.  The majority of people breathe with their chest muscles instead of their abdomen.  I’m going to put my hands on my stomach and take a deep breath.  Watch my hands.”

We watched as he slowly inhaled and we watched his hands move as his abdomen expanded out.  We continued to watch as his abdomen moved back in as he slowly exhaled.

“That’s called ‘belly breathing’.  Your lungs have five lobes and they go much further down than just your chest.  Most people only breathe using the top two lobes of their lungs.”

“I swear sometimes I hardly breathe at all!” Jane exclaimed.

“And you’re probably right; your breathing could be very shallow at times, and it’s extremely harmful to your well being!  Okay, let’s all try this together.  Put your hands on your abdomen.  Just breathe in deeply yet comfortably; then slowly exhale.  Your exhalation should take about twice as long as your inhalation.  Every one is different.  Just do what feels comfortable to you.”

We all took our first belly breaths and looked at each other with amazement.

“I never ever took a breath like that.  It felt strange, unnatural in a way, yet so wonderful!” Jennifer marveled.

“You used your diaphragm to take that breath.  That kind of deep breathing oxygenates the blood, nourishes every cell of the body and promotes relaxation.  Slow deep breaths change our vibrations, by increasing the molecular activity of our cells.  I mentioned earlier that the solar plexus is the seat of the subconscious mind.  Deep breathing massages the diaphragm and increases the flow of blood to the solar plexus. 

“What I’m going to do now is conduct a progressive relaxation exercise which will relieve stress.  Position yourself comfortably in your chair, take a couple of deep calming breaths, close your eyes and just listen to me.”

A while later I opened my eyes at the count of five, feeling very relaxed and yet alert. 

“That was hypnosis?” Joshua asked.

“Yes,” Russell replied.

“But I heard everything you said.  I wasn’t in some sort of trance or asleep.”

“Right, you were in a very relaxed state which allowed me to speak to your subconscious mind.”

“I still can’t believe I was hypnotized,” Joshua persisted.

“Take a look at the back of your right hand.  Do you see the impression I made with my fingernails when I pinched you?” Russell asked.

“I see the mark.  You pinched me?” Joshua asked.

“I pinched each of you, and I pinched you hard enough that the mark is still there.  Do you remember when I touched your hand and told you that you would feel a little pressure?  No discomfort, only a little pressure?  That was when I pinched you.  Before I did that, I told you that your hand was numb; as if you had it immersed in a bucket of ice water or was given a shot of Novocain.  I was speaking to your subconscious mind and gave it the suggestion that you had no feeling in your hand at all, and then I pinched you to prove it.  Before I brought you out of hypnosis, I told you that all normal feeling was returned to your hand.”

“The entire experience was so relaxing,” Jane murmured.  “I feel marvelous!”

“And it’s all simply mind over matter,” I remarked.

Do any of you readers have an obsession with mental powers and the subconscious mind?

Back to the Bible

As I mentioned earlier in my post entitled “In Our Image”, Genesis, Chapter 1:26 intrigues me.  It reads:

 

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

 

God had created male and female “in his image”.  So if God had created man in “his image” then “God” must have had a physical form and was not just a spiritual being.  And if humans were created in the image of “God”, then our creator didn’t look like a stereotypical extraterrestrial with a big head and big dark eyes and grey skin. But who’s to say how many different kinds of celestial beings there are out there; each group could look different.

 

Genesis Chapter 2 begins with reference to God ending his work and resting on the seventh day. However, Verse 5 says“…there was not a man to till the ground.”  What had happened to the man he had created in Chapter 1 whom he told to be fruitful and multiply?  Reading further, Verse 7 says:

 

            “…the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

 

Was this a second creation or a restatement of what was described in Chapter 1?   And I saw that “God” was “God” in Chapter 1, but now a quick scan of Chapter 2 shows that this has been changed to “the Lord God”.  What did this mean?  Was this a different entity and a second creation story?

 

Chapter 2 continues with the Lord God saying “it is not good that the man should be alone.”  And then, for the second time, God continued to form every beast of the field and every fowl of the air.  But for the man there was not found a “help meet” for him. The creation of woman, again for the second time, follows beginning with verse 21:

 

            “And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”

 

Then the serpent shows up in Chapter 3 and we all know how that goes.  I especially noted the verses that read “And the serpent said unto the woman, ‘Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”  And once they had eaten of the tree, they did not die as God had said, but they did know they were naked.

 

I wondered who the serpent was.  Was he ‘Satan’, or was he an emissary of an extraterrestrial community interfering with this little creation experiment for some reason?  And if so, exactly what was their agenda?

 

I also noted that the serpent uses the word “God”; yet throughout Chapter 3 the words “Lord God” are used.  “God” was the creator back in Chapter 1.  Were ‘God’ and ‘Lord God’ two separate entities? Was the serpent connected with the ‘God’ of Chapter 1 and out to sabotage the ‘Lord God’ of Chapter 2? 

 

           Reading further in Chapter 3, I came across that second reference to “plural gods” when the Lord God says “Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil…”

 

I noted that once I got into Chapter 4, the Lord God became just “Lord” and again wondered if that had any significance.  I kept reading past Noah and the flood story and came to Chapter 11 which began “And the whole earth was of one language, of one speech.”  And described the building of a city and “a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”  And this was followed with:

 

            “And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.  Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth:  and they left off to build the city.  Therefore is the name of it called Babel: because the Lord did there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.  So the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.”

 

Up through Chapter 11 there are three separate references to plural gods, and in each of them it is a direct quote of “god” speaking to others who appear to be of similar standing.  And in the Babel story he is saying “let us go down”…like fire up the spaceship we’ve got to go down there and confuse the hell out of those people because they’re getting too smart for their own good.

Unmoving Experience

I was about 15 when I had my first sleep paralysis episode.  It happened while  I was babysitting for my sister and brother-in-law one night.  They had three young children at that time who were all tucked in their beds, fast asleep.  It was after 11 p.m. and I was getting drowsy.  I laid down on the sectional sofa in the living room and after a short while I dozed off.

I don’t know how long I had been sleeping when I awoke with a start.  I was laying on my side, facing the back of the sofa.  I could sense someone behind me.  I could even hear their breathing.  I thought to myself that one of the children had come downstairs and was standing there.  I went to turn around and realized with alarm that I couldn’t move.  I couldn’t move any part of me except for my eyes.  I can remember staring at the woven fabric of the sofa with a sense of alarm.  What was wrong with me?

As I kept trying to move, I realized that the breathing behind me was closer now.  It was right behind me.  And it was not normal breathing, it was loud and labored.  I still thought that this must have been one of the children and something was wrong.  What kind of babysitter was I? 

As the breathing got louder and louder, I was in a panic and unable to understand what was happening to me.  Did I have a stroke?  Why was I paralyzed?  I kept trying and trying to move.  Then with one mighty effort, I flung myself around only to face nothing.  No one was there.  The breathing had stopped as soon as I moved.  This really freaked me out. 

I checked all the outside doors, which were still locked.  I turned on the outside lights and saw nothing unusual.  I know I hadn’t imagined it.  What had happened?   I didn’t say anything to my sister when she and my brother-in-law returned home.  I thought they would think I was crazy.  No point in even going there.

Over the decades since, I have had other similar episodes.  I’ve sinced wondered if the breathing behind me was emanating from an extraterrestrial who slid back through a portal into his dimension when I moved.  What else could it be?

After all, I did see a UFO when I was younger…maybe they’re monitoring me?

Rh Negative Blood Relatives

Until fairly recently I had no idea that there was anything unusual about my Rh negative blood.  I knew that after I had given birth to my daughter, I was given an injection of Rhogam.  I was told that Rhogam  was routinely given to women with Rh negative blood after pregnancies in which they carried Rh positive fetuses in order to prevent the mother’s immune system from reacting against the Rh positive blood of any subsequent fetus.  At the time I thought it was strange that my immune system would react against a subsequent fetus with Rh positive blood, but I never questioned it, and I had no more pregnancies.

 

Recently I learned that only 15% of the world’s population has Rh negative blood.  The other 85% has Rh positive and the Rh stands for Rhesus like in monkey.  So those with Rh positive blood have a factor in their blood that can be traced back to the Rhesus monkey.  But the earthly origin for Rh negative blood is unknown.  Scientists have no explanation for it.  This made me think back to my mother saying that a monkey wasn’t her uncle.  I asked her to explain what she meant.  She said that she didn’t believe that humans evolved from monkeys.  Her theory was that if humans did evolve from monkeys, how can there still be monkeys on this planet?  Wouldn’t it follow that all monkeys then evolved into humans?  How could it be that some monkeys evolved and others did not?  How could you argue with this?  I certainly couldn’t.

 

Recently I started thinking about the Rh negative issue again.  An Rh negative pregnant woman’s body rejects the positive blooded baby in her womb. Her blood builds up antibodies to destroy the alien substance. Conversely, an Rh positive woman’s body does not reject an Rh negative fetus.  Why would an Rh positive fetus be considered alien?  I started to research this on the web and learned that scientists can clone the Rh positive factor, but they are not able to clone the Rh negative factor.  There are some sites that suggest Rh negative people are related to the ancient astronauts and it’s believed there is a high percentage of alien abduction of people with Rh negative blood.

I have seen a UFO, I have had an out of body experience, I have had episodes of sleep paralysis and now I believe this Rh negative thing is related to these.

UFO/ET Art History

Finding the usage of the plural pronouns “us” and “our” as references to God in Genesis prompted me to take a trip to a local bookstore.  I told my friend Alex about what I had found, and he joined me, as he, too, was now curious.  Finding several books which were related to ancient astronauts and the creation of the human race by extraterrestrials, we thought that we had enough to do some preliminary research.  We were about to head to the check-out desk when Alex spotted ‘The Alien Chronicles’ by Matthew Hurley.  “Look at this,’ he said, “the cover has a picture of the baptism of Christ with a big UFO above shining its light rays down on Jesus.”  I said “That can’t be a real painting”. Alex found the credit inside the cover and he said, “Yes it is, get this, it was painted by Aert De Gelder in 1710, it’s entitled ‘The Baptism of Christ’ and it’s housed in the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge. The cover also states ‘Compelling Evidence for UFOs and Extraterrestrial Encounters In Art and Text Since Ancient Times’. We have to get this.” 

 

 

I looked again at the front cover of this book, and said to Alex, “This picture takes us from the Old Testament to the New Testament.  There is a possibility that celestial beings created us, and now there is also a possibility that there was a connection to Jesus.  Like the Star of Bethlehem…maybe it wasn’t a star, maybe it was a UFO?  Maybe every time you read ‘angel’ in the bible, it’s really an ET and every time you read ‘star’ or ‘cloud’ or some such thing it’s a UFO.”

 

 

When we got home, Alex said “I’ll try to do a ‘find and replace’ function of the bible on the internet and see what I come up with.  I agree, this probably involves the entire bible, not just the Old Testament.” He got up and walked towards the computer and I started to thumb through the book.

 

I turned to the table of contents and found a chapter entitled ‘Creation Stories’.  The chapter was broken down into sections:  1) Asia, Mesopotamian Civilizations, Bible Stories, Islam, 2) Africa and Egyptians, 3) North America, 4) South America, 5) Australasia.  It referred to a common thread appearing in creation myths and legends of cultures around the world.  The common thread was that beings from elsewhere with “Godlike” powers tried to assist in the development in the culture of civilizations around the world.  The Indian ‘Vedas’ actually contained descriptions of flying machines, which were called ‘Vimanas’. 

 

I quickly browsed the rest of this chapter and realized that I needed to sit down and read every word, not just browse.  The existence of the types of books that we purchased today was evidence that our preliminary suspicion that the ‘god’ reference in Genesis might be extraterrestrial was supported by others.   But the newly acquired books were too much of a distraction.  I needed to focus on one thing at a time, and I felt that one thing was to finish reading Genesis.

 

I started to put down ‘The Alien Chronicles’ and then curiosity got the better of me.  I turned to the table of contents again and saw there was a chapter ‘UFOs in Western Religious Art’.  I had to take a peek at this.  The picture on the cover was too enticing.  

 

The first work of art shown in this chapter was ‘The Annunciation, with Saint Emidius’ by Carlo Crivelli, 1430 to 1495.  The painting shows the Virgin Mary kneeling inside a building with what appears to be a dove (the holy spirit) above her.  But outside in the sky is a UFO which is emitting a beam of light down, through the wall of the house, through the dove, and into the head of the Blessed Virgin.  The Angel Gabriel was outside the building speaking with Saint Emidius. 

 

Another painting was that of ‘The Virgin Mary with Saint Giovannino’.  The artist is unknown, but has been credited to the School of Lippi, 1406-1469.  This picture was amazing.  It showed the Blessed Virgin with the baby Jesus.  Off to Mary’s left shoulder is a UFO hovering in the sky.  There is a man and his dog in the background.  The man has his hand up to shield the sun from his eyes and both the man and the dog are looking up at the object.  If you missed the UFO at first glance, then looking at the man and dog looking up would draw your attention to it. 

 

Then there was the ‘Glorification of the Eucharist’ by Bonaventura Salimbeni, 1595.  This was the most bizarre of all!  Toward the upper right side is God the Father, to the left is Jesus, and above is the dove which symbolizes the Holy Spirit.  In between Jesus and God the Father is a round object that has two antennae, kind of like rabbit ears, sticking out of the top.  And toward the bottom is a round protrusion that looks like a camera or telescope.    To me this object resembled a Russian sputnik or one of the earlier satellites.  What did this mean?

 

There were other paintings and tapestries included in this chapter ranging from the 1300’s to the 1800’s.  Why did these works contain portrayals of UFO’s? What did these artists know?

Many Moons Ago I Saw a UFO

I must have been around 14. My mother and I sat outside on summer nights in our backyard in Connecticut to enjoy the cool night air and watch the sky. We knew the flight paths of the airplanes from the New York airports to Boston and Europe. We knew the path of Telstar’s orbit and we would watch for it as it passed overhead. We sat in the sunken garden for hours on a nice night and observed the stars, planets, shooting stars and everything else that occupied the night sky.

One night I noticed a relatively dim light low in the southeastern horizon. It appeared to be stationary, but it was a light or star that I did not recall seeing before. I kept my eyes on it while taking in all that was going on in the sky above me. It seemed to me that it was moving ever so slightly. If you looked at it, you couldn’t see movement, but if you looked away and then looked back several minutes later, it appeared to have moved northward along the horizon in relation to where it had been before.

After watching this for probably a half an hour or so, I brought it to my mother’s attention. She didn’t remember seeing it before either and she kept her eyes on it as did I. Over the next half hour we both agreed that, yes, it was still moving north. Now we were really intent on watching it. It had progressed a little more than half way across the eastern horizon. We watched and watched and it appeared to have stopped. We continued to watch. Minutes passed and no movement. We were now up on our feet watching it. We were alarmed by the lack of movement. What could possibly stop dead in the sky? There were no sounds and it seemed to be very distant.

Then, from that dead stop, it made a 90 degree turn and was zooming directly toward us. I felt that it was reading our minds…it knew we were watching it and it was coming to us. As it zoomed in our direction, the light was getting brighter and bigger with still no sound emanating from it. It was almost directly overhead. Scared, I took off and ran toward the house. I could hear my mother’s footsteps following me. We reached the back door and ran into the kitchen and locked the door behind us. We were afraid to look out the windows for fear something would be looking in. We discussed this episode quite often in later years and often wondered if we had lost any time that night….were we abducted? We couldn’t recall losing time and we had no evidence that we were abducted. But now, more than 45 years later, that memory is still alive and I still wonder.
