Gifts From The Anunnaki


Before I venture into the subject of the narrative let me state that I have never been in favor of the United State's 2003 invasion of Iraq. According to U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the coalition mission was "to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein's support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people." From the beginning I recognized that this was an excuse...there had to be another reason for this assault. In 2005, the Central Intelligence Agency released a report saying that no weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq. That statement alone set my radar abuzz. What have they actually been looking for?

For many years since the invasion there have been rumors about Saddam Hussein's scientific and military 'underground', especially when the subject of hidden weapons was raised. Saddam Hussein desired a 'super weapon' and would do anything in his power to obtain one. In the 1980's, Iraq engaged world-renowned artillery expert Gerald V. Bull to construct the "Supergun / PC-2", a huge howitzer able to fire satellites into space or launch artillery shells thousands of miles into enemy territory. The endeavor was called 'Project Babylon'. On March 22, 1990, Bull was assassinated, allegedly by several western intelligence agencies, terminating development, and the parts were confiscated by British customs after the Gulf War.

THE STARGATE

Dr. Michael E. Salla, PhD in government from the University of Queensland and William Henry conclude the U.S. and German governments believe there is a 'Stargate' (portal to another world) in Iraq, a country also known as Ancient Mesopotamia, the land of Babylonia and the Cradle of Civilization.

They stated that the strongest available evidence comes from the work of the Sumerian scholar, Zecharia Sitchin. Sitchin translated the cuneiform tablets recording the beliefs and activities of the ancient Sumerians whose civilization began almost overnight in 3800 BC. The Sumerians had detailed knowledge of all the planets in the solar system, understood the precession of the equinoxes, and also had an understanding of complex medical procedures.

Salla believes that the U.S., Russia, Germany and France have been aware that the Anunnaki left behind some very high-tech apparatus, and possibly weaponry, when they abandoned the Earth around 1,700 B.C. Salla also contends that Saddam Hussein had been getting assistance from Russian, German and French archaeological teams for years in an attempt to unravel, and perhaps reverse-engineer, this apparatus. Salla claims it is probably far in advance of any technology we might have obtained from the Grays from Zeta Reticuli and which is supposedly warehoused at Area 51 in Nevada.

Saddam Hussein wanted to cement his place in history by reviving the grandeur of early Mesopotamian civilizations because he was allegedly aware of the existence of a Stargate. Prior to the US invasion, Hussein performed a detailed underground mapping of the area around the Sumerian city of Uruk and had given permission for a German team of archaeologists to resume excavations in the most likely location of the Sumerian Stargate. This is consistent with the German government’s public opposition to the invasion of Iraq. If there is a Stargate in Southern Iraq, then the Bush Administration was aware the Stargate would play a role in a “prophesied return of the gods.”


SADDAM HUSSEIN AND THE ALIENS

On Thursday, December 16, 1998, during Operation Desert Fox, the Allied air strike against Iraq, a video clip aired on CNN showed a UFO hovering over Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, and moving away to avoid a stream of tracer anti-aircraft fire. At the time, it was thought to be just another UFO sighting, although captured on videotape. Many ufologists think there might have been more to this incident.

According to ufologist Ignatius Graffeo, "I did see a triangular formation of lights moving very slowly at about" 12:55 a.m. Baghdad time that Thursday "on an NBC news report of the bombing...The light was steady, and it was definite and very striking." He described it as "a V-shaped formation like the one at Phoenix," Arizona on March 13, 1997.

The UFO "was against a black night sky and very different from the 'greenish' tracer fire moving across the sky, which did not hold their position for any length of time."

On December 6, 2002, a caller into the Art Bell (radio) show, who claimed to have a connection to the military, said a UFO crashed in Iraq in recent years. The caller also stated that the U.S. is searching for any public pretext to invade Iraq, but its greatest fear is that Saddam will reverse-engineer the crashed alien spacecraft. "The craft allegedly crashed during the Gulf War (1990-1991) or more recently (possibly December 1998). This will be Iraq's Roswell. The U.S. is currently reverse-engineering the Roswell craft and fears Saddam's scientists will catch up with or even go beyond the U.S. in one or more areas. These areas of research include zero point, over-ratio or gravimetric technology, which would allow for a tremendous advance, allowing Iraq to become a leading power."

During a recent guest appearance on 'Beyond The Edge' Radio, author / UFO & military historian Mack Maloney made a similar statement about an alien craft being shot down by U.S. pilots and that the wreckage was retrieved by the Iraqis.

Ukrainian psychic Lenura A. Azizova claimed that Saddam Hussein first met an extraterrestrial in 1989, when a cylindrical UFO crashed in the mountains southeast of Kirkuk.

"In 1989, in the mountainous region several dozen kilometers east or southeast of Kirkuk, was the UFO crash that was soon cordoned off by Saddam's military," Azizova said, following a series of remote-viewing sessions in her own country. "The craft was seized, evaluated and kept hidden in great secrecy. The crash of this alien spacecraft made a long trench in the ground. The vehicle was shaped like a cylinder, or more precisely, like a bullet, 12 meters (40 feet) long and 2.4 meters (8 feet) in diameter, silver in color."

"The body of one dead alien was found inside," she added, "The alien was Asian-looking, about 1.5 meters (5 feet) in height, with a big head, big eyes and four- fingered hands. The second member of the crew left the capsule through the opening at the back part of the craft. A few days afterward, Iraqi soldiers in the nearby mountains" north of Taqtaq "caught this second alien. The entity was obviously frightened and gave off squeaking noises."

"Saddam was afraid that other aliens would arrive to save the crew, so the recovery was made very quickly," she stated. "The Iraqi army transported the craft in top secrecy at night to Irbil province, where the special underground tunnel with hangars was constructed to hide and study the spacecraft. Natural caves existing in the region were used for this purpose. The body of the (dead alien) pilot was also stored there in a special cryogenic container."


The underground facility is "located in the mountains southeast of Irbil, approximately somewhere between Girdasur and Mirza Agha."

An Iraqi correspondent Mohammed Daud al-Hayyat stated before the invasion, "there are talks about extraterrestrials in Iraq, but nothing is said about any crash. It is rumored at a market in Sulaimaniya, to the south of Zarzi, that aliens are Saddam's guests. Where do they stay then? People mention some underground base. But Saddam has a palace in this valley, an old stronghold Qalaat-e-Julundi. Earlier it belonged to the royal family. After the revolution, the government took possession of the fortress, and now, like every palace in Iraq it is "a summer residence" of Saddam Hussein. The fortress is mentioned here for a very simple reason: it is practically impossible to penetrate into it. The citadel stands on a hill surrounded with vertical precipices on three sides; the precipices plunge down to the Little Zab river. It is said that Saddam lets aliens stay there."


An Iraqi UFO reporter Mohammed Hajj al-Amdar said on the basis of strange stories coming out of that valley: "Saddam gave the aliens sanctuary, so that they couldn't be captured by Americans. Nobody can reach the citadel Qalaat-e-Julundi at night. They say that the aliens created "watchdogs" for Saddam. The aliens took ordinary desert scorpions and used their bio-engineering to grow the scorpions to giant size. Scorpions of a cow-size! They are wonderful watchdogs: they blend in with the desert, swiftly and silently move on their warm-blooded prey for a decisive attack. Luckless intruders hear just some strange sound from behind stones, then a pincer crushes their necks, another pincer crushes their legs; then the victims is slammed to the ground and beaten with a barbed tail six or seven times. Death comes almost immediately."

UFO Roundup Editor Joseph Trainor came to a conclusion that something strange is actually happening in the valley of the Little Zab river, but it is not clear what exactly. It is not ruled out that Saddam intentionally spreads these rumors so that to scare people away from some important military object located in the old fortress of Qalaat-e-Julundi.

Several years earlier, on June 20, 1993, information was published on FIDOnet's MUFONET BBS NETWORK, what was a letter from 'Steve from Britain'. He openly warned: "The following information was published in Amateur Radio Packet BBS on June 13 by some short-wave transmitter for spreading all over the world. I know nothing about the man who published the information, I also cannot say whether his information is true. The man reported that some aircraft was found after it was brought down by F-16 over Saudi Arabia during raids in Baghdad."

The information itself said: "A high-ranking source admitted that US Air Force's F-16 brought down a UFO over Saudi Arabia during the Operation Desert Storm, and five countries are trying to conceal information about this fact. I don't know details, but it was some plane unknown to me. Saudis who were with me at that moment, were scared so much that they asked American, British and French investigators to come to the crash site immediately."

Colonel Gregor Petrokov, a senior Russian official said that at that moment he was on a visit to Er Riyadh, where together with a Russian group he managed to examine the crashed aircraft before American troops participating in Desert Storm came to the crash site. He said: "The aircraft was round and made of some material that I never saw myself. About one third of the craft was torn out by blasts of American missiles. Saudis didn't let us touch anything, but we managed to see appliances, mechanisms and other things that bewildered us absolutely." Inscriptions on the control panel and on the scales were in some unknown language.

"It was a relatively small craft, of approximately 15 feet in diameter. It had three chairs, probably for crew members, but they were so small as if meant for children. To all appearance, space aliens were just about three feet tall. However, it seems incredible that there were no dead bodies at the crash site; what is more, nothing that might look like an engine was found there as well. Probably American missiles hit the engine immediately and destroyed it. Later, operators of Saudi radar stations told me that no ejection or falling of some subjects out of the craft was registered. Searching helicopters surveyed the desert, but the pilots failed to find any surviving crew member close to the crash site."

At the radar station Petrokov learned that the target identified as a UFO emerged "from nowhere" when four F-16 headed for Baghdad. One of the American planes broke the line and directed toward the UFO. The alien craft started moving south-west, away from the American plane, and the latter pursued it. When the F-16 was three miles away from the object, the craft fired at it but missed. Then the American plane fired a missile at the UFO. A horrifying sound followed and the spacecraft dropped on the ground. Petrokov says that when American investigators came to the crash site, he and his people were ordered to leave the area for Er Riyadh. The colonel says, it is highly likely that Americans didn't want others see some other things that were in the crash site in addition to the round shape of the craft made of some unknown material and the fact that no aliens survived after the crash.

In Petrokov's words, people from his team managed to take pictures of the site, and neither Saudis nor Americans noticed it. But the next day the team was ordered to bring the pictures to Russian authorities. "American military engineers gathered all wreckage and removed them for further study in the USA."

So...did the U.S. and it's allies invade Iraq to disarm it of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein's support for terrorism, to free the Iraqi people and to secure the oil fields? Or was the mission designed to capture alien technology before Saddam Hussein had the ability to use it?

Faceless Phantom

This anecdote was forwarded to me by a friend and details an incident experienced by her sister and niece in July-August 2009:

The following story is true and centers around my daughter Carmen when she was five years old. The poor economy required us to move into an older modest house in western Pennsylvania. From the day we moved in Carmen began to have, what I considered at the time, terrifying nightmares. She would come running into my bedroom in the early morning hours screaming, claiming she had witnessed "something very bad." After a while, I would calm her down and convince her to return to her room. In a month's time the situation was at a point where she totally refused to go back to her own room. So she began to sleep with us...unfortunately, no one was getting any sleep.

One day I asked her to tell me what was really bothering her in her room at night. She told me instantly that an scary woman with no face would come into her room, close the door and stand in front of it so that Carmen couldn't get out. She said the woman had long hair and was dressed in a bloody dress. I thought to myself "where did she get theses ideas from?" So in order to prove to her that there was nothing to be afraid of I agreed to sleep with her in her bed that evening.

That night, after she'd already been asleep for a few hours, I lay awake wondering again how she dreamed up this scary scenario. But what happened next convinced me that something was not right. Suddenly Carmen sat up in bed, out of a dead sleep, and clutching the covers against her she said "Mommy...you scared me! I thought you were the woman!" I hadn't made a sound...but she woke instantly. It seemed like she could sense that something was in the room even though she was sound asleep. I calmed her down and we soon fell asleep together.

Around midnight, I heard what sounded like a gun firing or a large firecracker. It was so loud it seemed to go off in the room. I assumed it was just a dream and my mind playing tricks on me. Carmen was sound asleep, like nothing had happened...so I went back asleep. Just as I drifted off, I woke to the sound of something downstairs. I sat up and realized that someone was banging wildly on the front door. I ran down the stairs and looked out onto the front porch from a side window. The light was kept on, but I could see that there was no one on the porch. I went back upstairs and woke my husband to see if he'd heard anything. He looked up at me like I was crazy and said "go back to sleep." What the hell was going on, I thought. I got something to drink, went back to bed and slept through the night without any further disturbance.

The next morning I felt awful. I'm one of those people that needs to get a certain number hours of sleep or I can't function well the next day. At about 10 am, the owner of the house came by with a plumber to work on a leaking pipe. She was wondering how we were getting along, so I briefly told her what had been going on, especially my experiences from the previous night. It sort of spooked me when she started to nervously looked around as I described the incidents. I asked her if there was anything wrong...she said 'no' and said that she was going to check with the plumber. She got up from her chair, walked over to the basement door and started walking down the basement stairs. Now what was that all about? After the plumber finished, he left the house...but the landlady asked if she could talk to me for a minute. She softly said not to be alarmed, but after what I had described to her she needed to tell me what had happened previously in the house. I didn't like this already.

She started by saying that the woman that lived there before us was very strange and had told her numerous stories about odd incidents. She had dismissed these stories to her eccentric behavior and the fact that the woman was known to drink heavily on occasion.

Many years before that, a young woman had rented the house. She had expected her fiance to move in as well but on the very same day she moved in, he called to say that he'd met someone else in another city and that he didn't want to see her again. She attempted to call him back several times, threatening to commit suicide if he left her. Each time he hung up on her. Later that evening, the calls stopped. The fiance became worried and tried to call her but after an hour without success, he called the police. When the police arrived they woke the landlady in order to get a key to get in.

It was around midnight as the police banged feverishly on the front door (the same time I heard banging on our front door). When they got no reaction they let themselves in, only to find the young woman in the room that Carmen now slept in. She lay dead by the door after she had shot herself under the chin. She had used a large caliber handgun and the gunshot had completely disfigured her face. This had to be the loud noise I heard while in Carmen's room. There was a dark stain on the hardwood floor by the door but I never gave it a second thought. I asked the landlady about and she admitted to me that it was blood, and that they had never been able to completely remove it.

I assume it's possible that this young woman had been visiting my child the night. We didn't wait to find out...we moved out shortly after. RR

An American 'Clurichaun' Tale

I received an email inquiry from a reader several years ago:

Hi - I was wondering if you had ever had or heard of a leprechaun or fairy experience in America? Susan

Well, I have written about and reported a few fairy-like being encounters over the years...including a leprechaun or two. There are also legends of the 'Tommyknockers' in mining areas worked by Irish immigrants throughout North America. After I received the inquiry I looked back through my files, including a few journals I had kept from the 1970's. I did manage to find an odd anecdote that was told to me by a friend-of-a-friend in 1976 while in Philadelphia.

From what I gathered an ancestor by the name of Finn, who lived in colonel Philadelphia, had a bit of trouble keeping port wine on hand. It seemed that each morning he noticed that the level of a barrel he kept in the cellar got lower. In fact it had gotten to a point where he thought his wife was taking a dipper full each night while he slept...though he had never known her to have a taste for the stuff.

One day while working at the dock he asked his friend Donal what he thought about the situation. Donal looked back at Finn and laughed..."His Nibs is sampling your stock." Finn had no idea what Donal was referring to. "His Nibs...a clurichaun is stealing your spirits."

Honestly, when I heard the story I had no idea what a clurichaun was. Apparently, it is an Irish fairy which resembles the leprechaun. Some describe the clurichaun as a night 'form' of the leprechaun, who goes out to drink after finishing his daily chores. Clurichauns are said to favor drunkenness more than not. However, unlike their cousins, they are surly. If you treat them well they will protect your wine cellar, however, if mistreated, they will wreak havoc on a home and spoil the wine stock. Occasionally he can be heard singing Irish folk songs in the wine cellars. The clurichaun is great to have around the house because he also protects your home from vandals and thieves. They are also referred to as 'clobhairs' and 'His Nibs.'

According to Donal, if Finn wanted to see the clurichaun, leave a cup of wine on the night stand...it can't resist an offer of drink. Donal warned "don't scare it away. There will be dire consequences if you do."

That night, Finn left a full cup of wine on his night stand hoping to catch a glimpse of the imp. A little bit after midnight Finn heard the floor boards creaking. As he slowly opened his eyes, he gazed upon a small 3 ft. man wearing a red hat made of plant leaves and a red wool vest. It resembled a leprechauns in all it's physical characteristics. As he watched the clurichaun reach for the cup a horrific scream shot from behind him. His wife also caught glimpse of the small being and reacted instinctively. The clurichaun dropped the cup on the floor and dashed out of the room. Flinn thought "what now?"

Flinn tried to lure the clurichaun back and to its good graces with several offers of wine, but was never successful. It is said that Flinn could never keep fresh wine again...it always turned to vinegar as soon as it was brought into the house.

My Uncommon Home


Dear Lon,

I have been meaning to write to you and describe some bizarre and on-going experiences I have had while living in a small, 3 bedroom brick ranch home in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA. Most all these incidents have occurred inside this home, which in all respects is very mundane and ordinary. There is nothing sinister about the appearance or atmosphere of this residence. I have been living here quite comfortably for 27 years, yet there are occasions when things happen in this house which can't be easily explained away.

Among the first incidents I remember distinctly was one night as my then-wife and I were lying in bed, I felt a very sharp downward tug on the bed covers. The feeling was as if someone was crouched down at the foot of the bed and had just grabbed a handful of the covers and tugged them once, sharply, toward the floor. This movement was very firm, it was not just a wrinkle falling out of the covers, or me having a dream. I was wide awake at the time. Though I waited for something else to happen, nothing did, and that was the end of that particular incident.

There have been plenty of occasions where some item would suddenly disappear from its normal location, be gone for days or even weeks, and then reappear in its proper place, or well hidden in some unexplained spot around the house. One particular incident that stands out from many years ago was my driver's license was missing from my wallet. I searched all over the house and in my car, it was not to be found anywhere. A few days later, my driver's license was back in my wallet, but instead of in the compartment with the plastic window, the driver's license was just placed in the wallet alongside my cash.

Among the more startling things that have happened have been our television turning on by itself. This has happened several times, almost always when I'm alone in the house. One time in particular was very odd, because I had been working and doing errands around the house. Those errands had me entering and leaving the living room on several trips, but it was not until I had finished all my chores and walked into the living room to sit down and watch television that it came on by itself! I looked down and verified the TV remote was sitting on the coffee table untouched and in good working order.

There seems to be a slight increase in activity around Christmas time, as I have noticed on more than one occasion items will suddenly move of their own accord. I caught a slight movement out of the corner of my eye one holiday season and noticed that an extension cord which we had used to set up a table display had started to sway on its own.

On one occasion after my divorce from my first wife while I was living here alone, I heard the sound of something scratching around in my bedroom closet one night. As I listened, the scratching sound became louder and more active. Finally, believing it had to be a rodent that was possibly chewing on something in there, I got up and searched through the closet. I found nothing in the closet, nor the rest of the room to explain the noises. On many other occasions I've heard a lot of heavy movement in the attic. The attic of this house is quite small; you can not stand up anywhere in this attic and it is also quite packed with boxes. There is no way any one of normal size could move around much up there, but yet I've often heard the sounds of what could only be a full-sized person moving all around up there, seemingly trying to make as much racket as possible while doing so. I have gotten up and gone up into the attic to check things out, but have never seen or heard anything when I did. I want to emphasize that these sounds are not rats, squirrels, bats, etc. or some other small critters; these sounds are being made by something weighing what a full-grown adult would weigh.

As you can tell, the vast majority of these unexplained events are just curious and do not exhibit any overt signs of evil or any bad intent toward my present girlfriend, our animals or myself. However, there are some incidents that continue to occur on a very regular basis that have brought much distress to my girlfriend. Often when she is the first to retire at night, she will get back up very agitated within a few minutes and tell me there are people in the bedroom that are bothering her. She has some psychic sensitivity and swears someone who had lived in the house previously had been involved in some type of witchcraft or experimentation with Ouija Boards, because she was sure a portal had been opened in the room we were now using as our bedroom. She claims this portal remained open because some previous resident or guest in the home had probably buried some talisman or spirit object in the crawlspace under the house. I have been under the house on odd occasions through the years but have never found any evidence of something buried there, yet she believes this portal is open and is the entryway for these undesirable entities to come in.

Whatever the source of these manifestations, they have greatly affected my girlfriend. She is very uncomfortable sleeping in the bedroom and even has had some of these experiences while I'm in the room with her. I can not sense these things myself, and sadly, having me there with her does not always ease her suffering. I've suggested to her that as someone who has at least some psychic ability, she should learn how to protect herself from these entities or people, but she claims she is unable to find any source of protection to stop this from happening to her.

This is by far the most disturbing aspect of the incidents and obviously I find it very distressing to have this continuing to occur on a pretty regular basis, but I've been at a loss as to exactly how to put an end to it. I'm aware that sometimes bringing in a priest or someone to cleanse a home will actually provoke even more activity rather than ending it, so she continues to have to deal with this and neither of us quite know what to do.

One other incident that happened just prior to my moving here is also worthy of mentioning here. I was living in a small wood-frame house in a neighboring town. This place had its share of strange noises at night, including some very discernible footsteps that would come up the wooden steps from the basement. One night while living there alone, I was in bed prior to falling asleep when I felt something press down on the right side of the bed near my feet. It felt exactly as if a small child, maybe about 40 pounds or so in weight, had sat down on the edge of the bed. This was needless to say very disconcerting and I was quite taken aback. However, nothing else happened. At some point, as odd as it may sound, I eventually just fell asleep without ever reaching down to see if I could feel anything there or getting up and turning on a light to ensure my safety, although when it happened I was pretty shaken. I still don't know how or why I just laid there without reacting until I fell asleep, but that's what happened.

I've been told the previous resident of my present home, an elderly woman, had become ill and died here. There is ample evidence she loved this home and was quite attached to it. There are still many plants and shrubs growing around the lot which she planted herself. Perhaps she is still here and makes her presence known with these incidents to let us know we're not alone. If she is still here, for the most part she has been a very congenial, non-threatening member of the household and I have no problem sharing the place with her so long as she doesn't make trouble.

The above incidents are true. I have been an ardent researcher of all things paranormal/unexplained all my adult life and I have to admit it's been extremely interesting for me to have some real-life unexplained incidents of my own which, if nothing else, have given me irrefutable proof these incidents happen, quite probably happen to everybody, but some people take note of it and other people just ignore or dismiss these things.

Sincerely,

Steve A.

It Came At Night


I received the following email several years ago:

Hello - many years ago, a couple with 2 young boys moved into a venerable one-story house a few miles outside Portland, Oregon. The property was just down the road from us. We had known the wife through our church. After they had been in the house for a few months, they both began reporting strange activity. They had both heard something large and heavy enough to shake the ground with its footsteps come from the forest and walk around the outside of their house. In fact, it attempted to get in the house on several occasions. It also made growling and snorting noises. This happened several times, always at night.

On one occasion, the older of the two boys, then about 4, was heard talking with someone in his room during the late evening. The parents distinctly heard both the boy and a second, male voice. Both parents hurried into the room, to find the child reaching toward the open window, yelling, "No! No! Don't go! Don't go!" This was at first written off as an "invisible playmate", except that the window had been closed to keep the child warm and that he was not strong enough to open it alone.

The unknown being continued to prowl outside the house, and the family became horrified of what might happen if it got inside. They refused to go outside after sundown for any reason. After 6 months of fear and without the means to move, they discussed the situation with us one evening. We decided to try to eliminate it. Since both our husbands hunted deer and elk, they both had rifles if needed.

The men rigged spotlights all around the house, which was connected to a single switch inside. Late in the afternoon, they got into an old car that was parked on the property in plain sight of the house, and hunkered down out of sight. They remained there with some food, coffee and a walkie-talkie radio.

Shortly after sundown, we were inside the house and began to hear something walking the perimeter of the building. The ground shook with each step. We heard it slamming the walls, doors, and windows. I threw the switch for the lights, and the men stormed out of the car with rifles at the ready. They saw the tall weeds moving as though something large walk through it, but could not see what caused it. I was in contact with my husband by radio while we were inside hearing the sounds. The men heard nothing other than my voice on the radio.

We were terrified but, as a result of that night, there were no further disturbances at the house (as far as I know) and the family moved out a few months later. There had been several families in the residence since then, though none had reported any activity. The house was demolished recently to make room for a larger residence.

I will never forget the sound and fury we experienced that night. Most times when I mention the incident to others they usually say that it may have been a Sasquatch or another large animal roaming around. I doubt that very much since the men never heard or witnessed anything outside the house.

The real reason I am writing you is to get your opinion on a theory I have about this incident.

The woman had emotional issues and had several 'episodes' after she had given birth to her boys. I suppose this would be classified as postpartum depression nowadays. She was also very young, aged 16, when she was married to her 32 year-old husband. He was a member of a fundamentalist religious sect that is very strict when it came to family. In particular, she was expected to cater to all his needs - literally. I suspect that there was a lot of abuse, which then resulted in her emotional problems.

My question is - could this have been poltergeist activity? Could she have manifested a dark being or force?

I will end this email with one more disturbing detail. After the couple moved away, we rarely communicated again. They had moved to Idaho and lived in a very rural community. I was told later that the woman had died while giving birth to a fifth child - but I discovered soon after that she actually died of unknown circumstances that had never been made public. She was only 27. Thank you for reading - Rita

NOTE: though I don't know the full details of what happened in the family home, it is conceivable that this situation could have manifested into a poltergeist. These 'thought-form' entities are rarely benign and become quite strong in light of substantial emotional distress. If this fervent abuse continued after the family moved away, I suspect that the paranormal activity continued at the new location. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated circumstance. Stark abuse in any household can very easily result in a similar situation...Lon

Winter of Discontent: George Washington's Prophetic Vision


Many believe the story to be authentic, but most historians believe it is a legend, similar to the story of George Washington chopping down the cherry tree. Historians point out the story of the angelic vision was unknown during Washington’s life. It is first found in the writings of Charles Alexander (1836-1927) who wrote fictional “dream” stories about many famous Americans. Alexander wrote that in 1859, a 99-year-old man named Anthony Sherman, who claimed to have been an aide to George Washington, confided to the author. In the National Tribune, 1880, an article appeared giving an account of the "Vision of Washington" at Valley Forge. The article was reprinted in the Stars and Stripes on December 21, 1950.

The soldier mentioned as having a first-hand account of the "Vision," Anthony Sherman, was a soldier in the Continental Army. However, according to his pension application, written by him, he states that he was at Saratoga under the command of Benedict Arnold at the end of 1777 and only joined the main forces in 1778 in New Jersey just before the Battle of Monmouth.

Anthony Sherman wrote:

You doubtless heard the story of Washington's going to the thicket to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation. One day, I remember it well, when the chilly winds whistled through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shown brightly, he remained in his quarters nearly all the afternoon alone. When he came out, I noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual. There seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance. Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters who was presently in attendance. After a preliminary conversation of about an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone commanded, related the event that occurred that day.

THE VISION AND PROPHECY

"I do not know whether it is owing to the anxiety of my mind, or what, but this afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire into the cause of her presence. A second, a third, and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes. By this time I felt strange sentiments spreading through me. I would have risen, but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, even thought itself had become paralyzed. A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor. Gradually, the surrounding atmosphere seemed as though becoming filled with sensations and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarify, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy, and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

"Presently I heard a voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn,' while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world -- Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific. 'Son of the Republic,' said the same mysterious voice as before, 'look and learn.'

"At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel floating in mid-air, between Europe and America, dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand. He sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a dark cloud raised from these countries and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning passed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

"A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.' I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them. Again I heard the mysterious voice say, 'Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.'

"At this the dark, shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill-omened spectre approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking, I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word "Union," bearing the American flag, which he placed between the divided nation, and said, 'Remember ye are brethren.' Instantly the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons, became friends once more and united around the National Standard.

"And again I heard the mysterious voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.' At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia, and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: from each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were joined into one. And throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America, which country was enveloped in the volume of the cloud. And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns, and cities that I beheld were springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.' When the voice had ceased, the dark, shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth and blew a long and fearful blast.

"Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel, upon whose head still shone the word "Union," and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens, attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle. Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, 'Son of the Republic, look and learn.' As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious.

"Then once more I beheld the villages, towns, and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice, 'While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.' And taking from his brow the crown on which was blazoned the word "Union," he placed it upon the Standard, while the people, kneeling down, said, 'Amen.'

"The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, 'Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, passing which the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land, and the Union.' With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat, and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States."

"Such, my friends," concluded the venerable narrator, "were the words I heard from General Washington's own lips, and America will do well to profit by them." - Anthony Sherman

American spirits reached a low point during the harsh winter of 1777-78. British troops had marched triumphantly into Philadelphia the previous autumn. Philadelphia was the largest city in the Colonies and the seat of political power. After the British swept into Philadelphia, the Continental Congress had flee to west, first to Lancaster then to York.

VALLEY FORGE

Washington's army had spent the summer of 1777 fighting a string of losing battles. The Americans harassed the British army in skirmishes and minor battles for much of the fighting season. In the fall, the Americans showed pluck at the Battle of Brandywine in September and the Battle of Germantown in October. Yet the Americans were unable to keep the British out of Philadelphia.

In December, Washington marched his tired, beaten, hungry and sick army to Valley Forge, a location about 20 miles northwest of British-occupied Philadelphia. From Valley Forge, Washington could keep an eye on General Howe's British army ensconced in Philadelphia.

At Valley Forge, there were shortages of everything from food to clothing to medicine. Washington's men were sick from disease, hunger, and exposure. The Continental Army camped in crude log cabins and endured cold conditions while the Redcoats warmed themselves in colonial homes. The patriots went hungry while the British soldiers ate well.

Terms of enlistment were ending for many soldiers in Washington's army. The General wondered if he would even have an army left when the spring thaw finally arrived.

General Washington was upset that local farmers were hoarding much-needed food waiting to earn higher profits in the spring. Some farmers even sneaked grain into Philadelphia to feed the British army, who paid in gold or silver. With each passing night came more desertions. Washington grew privately disgusted at the lack of commitment of his so-called patriot fighters.

Then there was the grumbling of some in Congress and among some of Washington's own officers. Washington's leadership skills were openly questioned. Many said General Horatio Gates was better-suited to leading the army. After all, hadn't he scored a major victory in October at the battle of Saratoga.? Within the environment of cold, deprivation, and rebellion, how long could Washington and his army endure?

CONDITIONS AT VALLEY FORGE

Head Quarters, Valley Forge, February 16, 1778

Dear Sir: It is with great reluctance, I trouble you on a subject, which does not fall within your province; but it is a subject that occasions me more distress, than I have felt, since the commencement of the war; and which loudly demands the most zealous exertions of every person of weight and authority, who is interested in the success of our affairs. I mean the present dreadful situation of the army for want of provisions, and the miserable prospects before us, with respect to futurity. It is more alarming than you will probably conceive, for, to form a just idea, it were necessary to be on the spot. For some days past, there has been little less, than a famine in camp. A part of the army has been a week, without any kind of flesh, and the rest for three or four days. Naked and starving as they are, we cannot enough admire the incomparable patience and fidelity of the soldiery, that they have not been ere this excited by their sufferings, to a general mutiny or dispersion. Strong symptoms, however, discontent have appeared in particular instances; and nothing but the most acitive efforts every where can long avert so shocking a catastrophe.

Our present sufferings are not all. There is no foundation laid for any adequate relief hereafter. All the magazines provided in the States of New Jersey, Pensylvania, Delaware and Maryland, and all the immediate additional supplies they seem capable of affording, wil not be sufficient to support the army more than a month longer, if so long. Very little been done to the Eastward, and as little to the Southward; and whatever we have a right to expect from those quarters, must necessarily be very remote; and is indeed more precarious, than could be wished. When the forementioned supplies are exhausted, what a terrible crisis must ensue, unless all the energy of the Continent is exerted to provide a timely remedy?

Impressed with this idea, I am, on my part, putting every engine to work, that I can possibly think of, to prevent the fatal consequences, we have so great a reason to apprehend. I am calling upon all those, whose stations and influence enable them to contribute their aid upons so important an occasion; and from your well known zeal, I expect every thing within the compass of your power, and that the abilities and resources of the state over which you preside, will admit. I am sensible of the disadvantages it labours under, from having been so long the scene of war, and that it must be exceedingly drained by the great demands to which it has been subject. But, tho' you may not be able to contribute materially to our relief, you can perhaps do something towards it; and any assistance, however trifling in itself, will be of great moment at so critical a juncture, and will conduce to keeping the army together till the Commissary's department can be put upon a better footing, and effectual measures concerted to secure a permanent and competent supply. What methods you can take, you will be the best judge of; but, if you can devise any means to procure a quantity of cattle, or other kind of flesh, for the use of this army, to be at camp in the course of a month, you will render a most essential service to the common cause. I have the honor etc.
– George Washington, letter to George Clinton (Feb. 16, 1778)

Help came in the form of a Prussian volunteer, Baron Von Steuben. The military leader was aghast at the lack of American discipline. At Washington's urging he trained the Continental Army, Prussian-style. The troops slowly became more professional. Among the soldiers who remained, confidence grew.

Over the course of the winter, the weather improved somewhat. Food trickled in from the surrounding countryside. Many wives of soldiers spent time at Valley Forge over the winter. Washington was able to quash those who questioned his leadership abilities.

The Continental Army encamped at Valley Forge in the fall of 1777 with about 12,000 men in its ranks. Death claimed about a quarter of them before spring arrived. Another thousand didn't reenlist or deserted. But the army that remained was stronger. They were fewer, but more disciplined. They were weary, but firmly resolved.

The next year, 1778, brought greater fortune to the American cause. While Washington froze at Valley Forge, Benjamin Franklin was busy securing the French alliance. Now the war would be different indeed. - Washington at Valley Forge

"Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connexions with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked, Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."

Essential Oil Combination for Treatment of Skin Infections


Hey folks...last week I was hailing the properties and benefits of Clove EO (essential oil). I now have another remarkable use for essential oils.

After I was discharged from the hospital several weeks ago, I started to experience inflammation and pain in a once benign sebaceous cyst, which is located on my upper right back. I've had this cyst for almost 30 years and never had any problems with it. For the past 2 weeks, the cyst has doubled in size and become very painful. I believe the number of new drugs I was given in the hospital is the reason for the inflammation. I suppose I should have it surgically removed...but I'd prefer to not to go that route. I needed to find a way to facilitate drainage without cutting. Since this is an epidermoid cyst and located in the skin layer, I hoped that I could find a way for the pores in the skin to expand and drain.

So I went searching for information...and found the following article:

Recently, a close family member developed a nasty abscess on her back near the spine. Thinking it was a cyst, she fussed with the sore lump trying to get it to open…only to find the infected skin boil getting worse and intensely painful as days passed.

Mid-week while visiting us (before the recent Mothers Day holiday), mentioned she couldn’t lean back against her car seat when driving due to pain from the pressure. She was getting alarmed. The skin boil was so close to her spine, she feared the infection might become systemic. She was also afraid of what a doctor might do, attempting to lance the abscess, etc. and really didn’t want to make a medical appointment.

I asked if she would be willing to give gentle, strongly antibiotic, therapeutic-quality essential oils a try at least through the weekend to see how her body responded? Told her how essential oils bolster our immune system, infusing the body with natural compounds to fight and neutralize infections*. Despite having been an essential oils skeptic and naysayer, she now was willing to give them a try.

Four anti-infectious oils came to mind: CLOVE EO, LEMON EO, and two wonderful essential oil blends – one made from spices and another favorite blend with Tea Tree and Rosemary essential oils (my favorite reliable go-to choice for infections). Our relative has very sensitive skin, so I hesitated to offer either CLOVE or the spice blend, both ‘hot’ oils (skin and sensitive tissue-irritating)….which would need dilution.

Decided to check via dowsing, which essentials oils would be most effective to heal her skin boil…..a LEMON+TEA TREE-ROSEMARY essential oil blend was indicated. Further dowsing determined a 75% LEMON EO with 25% TEA TREE-ROSEMARY EO ratio as best for her. So I made this custom mix in a little 2.3ml bottle for her use. A bonus was its wonderful fragrance!

She gave me permission to apply the essential oils gently to the swollen, red, angry-looking abscessed skin boil twice before she left. In the couple of hours between applications, I could see a visible change in the surface texture of the abscess…the hard inflamed surface was softening. Suggested she carry the little bottle in her purse, continuing to apply the LEMON EO+TEA TREE-ROSEMARY EO blend am/pm after her morning shower, when she got ready for bed, and whenever she thought about it during the day.

The next morning (Thursday) her mother suggested applying a hot compress to the skin boil and within 10 minutes the skin broke open, so the abscess could begin draining. My relative was really surprised at the quick results, happy the infection would now begin healing. In doing further research on-line, we found hot compresses are a classic remedy to use on boils and abscesses.

She did make a doctor’s appointment for the following day (Friday). The doctor examined the abscess, confirming it was very good it was draining and to keep it open. A lab test sample was taken to check for staph (a common cause of skin infections) or other bacteria. (I never heard the results of that test.)

My family member asked if the essential oils may have helped the skin boil start draining so quickly? The doctor, unaware of therapeutic essential oils anti-infectious properties, assured her they likely had helped by ‘softening the skin.’ The MD advised her to continue the hot compresses, morning and evening; to wash her hands well, before-and-after touching it; and prescribed a dose of antibiotics to prevent systemic infection.

By Sunday, 4 days later, the sore had begun itching…a sure sign of healing. Putting on the LEMON EO+TEA TREE-ROSEMARY EO blend relieved the itching. The next time we saw her, nine days later, her skin was well on the way to recovery. She was being erratic with applying hot compresses, was taking the antibiotics as prescribed, but experiencing diarrhea from intestinal disturbances, and applying the LEMON EO+TEA TREE-ROSEMARY EO blend at least morning and evening. Once the course of antibiotics is complete, she will have to repopulate healthy intestinal flora by taking a probiotic for several weeks, since she doesn’t like to eat yogurt.

Heal Abscesses and Skin Boils Quickly with Essential Oils and Old-Fashioned Remedies

If I had a skin infection, my choice would be to not take an antibiotic prescription. Rather, I would use strongly anti-infectious, therapeutic essential oils frequently: bolstering my immune system by putting 3-6 drops of an immune bolstering essential oils blend on the soles of my feet, morning and evening. I would apply a gentle essential oils blend on and around the sore, often. And definitely apply the comforting hot compresses once or twice daily to speed the healing process.

In researching healing protocols for abscesses and infected boils, came across an old-fashioned remedy: applying a thin slice of raw potato over an infection will draw out the toxins! I wouldn’t leave it on longer than 30 minutes, flipping the slice over or changing to a new potato slice with each application. Our relative remembers using grated raw potato poultices over skin infections as a child to help them heal, something she learned from her mother. Simple old folk remedies often work, if we give them a try! - Cynthe Brush ~ Certified Clinical (Medical) Aromatherapist

I started using the Lemon EO + Tea Tree EO + Rosemary EO combination 3 days ago. Within 24 hours, the cyst started to drain. I combined the oils in these proportions:

70 drops Lemon EO
25 drops Tea Tree EO
25 drops Rosemary EO

I used these oils for only 24 hours (applying every 4 hours). I now have covered the area with heavy gauze which I change every few hours because of drainage. Lon

The Benefits of Clove Oil


As many of you know, I am fond of essential oils for their medicinal / aromatic uses. I've touted lavender oil and tea tree oil, but recently I have been using clove bud essential oil...particularly for direct pain relief on inflamed areas of the body. It's probably the best substance I have found for shingles. It has a pungent odor...but has many benefits.

The eugenol oil is a major ingredient of clove buds. This oil is extracted from dried buds of clove via steam distillation and it is rich in eugenol acetal and caryophyllene. The scientific name of eugenol is obtained from the scientific name for clove – Eugenia caryophyllata. It is liable for the flavor of cloves. It is the prominent component in the essential oil derived from cloves, which comprises 72–90% of the total content.

Benefits of Eugenol Oil

This oil is quite stimulating and aromatic in nature and is used in the form of powder or infusion for the treatment of vomiting, flatulence, nausea, languid indigestion etc. It is also considered to be potential germicide and antiseptic. Eugenol oil is more often than not facilitated in combination with other medicines.

Anti Microbial and Anti Viral: This oil is used to deal with toothache and other gum and dental disorders. It assists combating infections in gums and tooth decay and also protects against bad breathe. If decoction of clove along with ginger, basil leaves and cinnamon is used, it can treat cold, cough, cold and sore throat also.

Anti Septic: Eugenol oil, found in clove essential oil, is known for its antiseptic properties basically due to its anti-microbial characteristics. It can be used on wounds, any type of injuries (only externally) to offer them a protective layer of anti septic effect.

Anaesthetic: Eugenol oil is used for numbing and getting relief from certain pains. Because of this property, it is used to alleviate pain due to severe burns, skin sensitivity and any kind of inflammations.

Aphrodisiac: Eugenol oil also acts as an aphrodisiac, which catapults libido. Some ancient citations manifest that it was facilitated for treating impotency, premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunctions specifically in China. Nonetheless, it is not scientifically proved but due to its stimulating characteristics it is considered to be an anti depressant and mood booster.

Sedative: Eugenol oil is also used as a stress buster. If a few drops of eugenol oil is added in one glass of lukewarm water and taken, it can work as a great remedy for warding off mental fatigue, stress and offering a sound sleep. Hence, it is used to treat insomnia.

Healing Properties of Eugenol Oil: This oil is often used in multiple ways as it is rich in ingredients that helps stabilizing blood circulation and maintain body temperature. If this oil is applied externally, it can provide stimulating effects on the skin, generating redness heat.

Antifungal properties: Preliminary research has manifested that eugenol can be rich in additional, more potential medicinal value. For instance, some studies indicated that eugenol combats bacteria and eliminates the development of several fungi, like Candida albicans, the pathogen instrumental for majority of yeast infections found in human being.

In cell cultures, this oil has been found to have 1.4 and 2.3 times better in fighting C. albicans and C. tropicalis, compared to those medications of the antifungal pharmaceutical nystatin. It is often also facilitated for combating fungal infections often witnessed on the skin, vagina, and ears in some of the countries, but this remedy may lead to some kind of irritation or dermatitis, hence it is advisable to try this remedy only after consulting your health care adviser.

Antioxidant: Preliminary study and research also exhibit that eugenol oils is a great fat-soluble antioxidant, eliminating the assimilation of fat peroxide component in red blood cells, regulating the functions of the body’s antioxidant enzymes and keeping them within normal level. The complete results of laboratory studies suggests that only small quantity of eugenol is required for a great protective effect as eugenol can be injected into cell membranes and can prevent lipid peroxidation instantly in place.

Digestive Disorders: Eugenol triggers flow of enzymatic and promotes functioning of digestive. They are facilitated in several forms of gastric dyspepsia irritability. Consuming the fried cloves powder with honey, can controlling vomiting tendency. The anesthetic properties of eugunol neutralize the stomach and gullet and thus cease vomiting episodes.

A combination of eugenol oil along with zinc oxide has been recommended by dentists to soothe toothache. Several toothpastes and mouth fresheners are equipped with eugenol oil, due to its good aromatic effect.

The Wandjina: Dreamtime Artists

Arguments can be made that the evidence for ancient astronauts comes from supposed gaps in historical and archaeological records, and they also maintain that absent or incomplete explanations of historical or archaeological data point to the existence of ancient astronauts. The evidence is said to include archaeological artifacts that are beyond the presumed technical capabilities of the historical cultures with which they are associated. This also includes artwork and legends that are interpreted as depicting extraterrestrial contact or technologies.

Notwithstanding these contentions, let us say that there is an axiom to the ancient astronaut theory. Then we need to ask, who were these beings? What did they represent to the inhabitants of earth? Where these beings the ancient Gods of antiquity?

I would like to periodically chronicle my speculation of how the native people interpreted these unknown entities. This edition describes the Wandjina.

In 1838, a party led by Captain George Grey stumbled across paintings in the Kimberley district of Western Australia that have been the subject of controversy ever since. Exploring among the hills near the Prince Regent River, Grey's group found a number of caves in which many extraordinary figures were painted.

Describing the main painting in one of the caves Grey investigated, he wrote in his journal that "It was the figure of a man, ten feet 6 inches [3.2 metres] in length, clothed from the chin downwards in a red garment, which reached to the wrist and ankles"

"...The face and head of the figure were enveloped in a succession of circular bandages or rollers...these were colored red, yellow and white: and the eyes were the only features represented on the face. Upon the highest bandage or roller, a series of lines were painted in red, but...it was impossible to tell whether they were intended to depict written characters, or some ornament for the head.."

Grey continued to state that the paintings: "...had the appearance of being much more defaced, and ancient, than any of the other's that the party had seen".

Wandjina (the spirit in the cloud), as the paintings have become known, have given rise to many theories. Some people contend that the Wandjina represent visiting extraterrestrials, with their spherical helmets to protect them from our earthly environment. The existing rock art has depicted them as having huge upper bodies and large heads. Their faces show eyes and nose, but typically lack mouths. Around the heads of Wandjinas there appears to be lightning and feathers.

To the Australian Aborigines, the Wandjina (or Wondjina) were cloud and rain spirits who, during the Dreamtime, painted their images (as humans but without mouths) on cave walls. Dreamtime is a sacred era in which ancestral Totemic Spirit Beings formed The Creation. It has been said if the Wandjina had mouths, the rain would never cease. They also lacked limbs and had a skull-like face. Their ghosts still exist in small ponds. Walaganda, one of the Wandjina, became the Milky Way.

The Wandjinas have common colors of black, red and yellow on a white background. Wandjinas are believed to have made the sea, the earth and all its inhabitants. The Wandjina is thought to have special powers and if offended, can cause flooding and intense lightning. The paintings are still believed to have special powers and therefore are to be approached cautiously.


Aboriginal actor-historian Ben Blakenley tells of "The Legend of the Silver Bird", "Long long ago, far back in the Dream Time, a great red coloured egg (spaceship) came down from the skies. It tried to land safely on the ground but broke (crash landed). Out of it emerged white-skinned culture-heroes (gods) and their children."

"The children's elders soon died, either through their old age or because they could not accustom themselves to our atmosphere. The children however were young and able to adapt more easily to their new surroundings. They carved and painted the likenesses of their parents upon cave walls to perpetrate their memory. In time the great red colored egg rusted away until its remains had merged with the ground, thus creating the red soil of Central Australia. The children of the culture heroes who came from the sky grew in numbers until they eventually populated the whole land, their skins turning black due to the hot climate."


Scholars have long argues whether these are visiting astronauts and their spacecraft, or mythical culture heroes and toltemic designs. Ufologists have pointed out that many of these puzzling shapes are similar to UFO shapes which have been sighted and reported in the 20th century. The implications are that 15,000 years ago strange shapes were observed in the skies. Whether these were spacecraft containing ancient astronauts remains unknown. There is evidence both for and against the theory of ancient astronauts and that they may once have visited and had some influence upon the ancient history of Australia.

An ancient astronaut legend comes from the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. This was told by the Dharuk tribe which formerly occupied a vast area stretching from the Hawkesbury River-Sydney District across to the western slopes of the Blue Mountains. The legend concerns "Biramee the Bird Man," who laid a great egg near what is now the town of Linden, from which the ancestors of the Aborigines hatched.

Another legend contends that Biame, the Sky God, came down from the sky in a big dreamtime hunt across the Blue Mountains. He gave the Aborigines the spear thrower and the boomerang, teaching them how to hunt their food and also to make fire...then he returned to the sky from whence he had come. The carvings not only depict Biame but also many strange little figures which were also the totemic figures of the various tribal groups that peopled the area. Among these totemic figures carved on the stone is a strange fish-like object which some have theorized to be space-craft. They also point to a strange human figure clad in garments which could be said to resemble an astronaut; others see a resemblance between this figure and a Egyptian soldier equipped with helmet and shield and say that the above creation myth is more reminiscent of those of the middle-east.

Although these finds may not be proof of extraterrestrial civilizations having visited earth in antiquity, there is certainly evidence which could be said to lend considerable weight to the ancient astronaut theory in Australia. The evidence primarily consists of archaeological finds which imply the former existence on this continent of a race of non-aboriginal man who inhabited Australia before the dawn of history, and who have left behind them traces of a vast astronomical knowledge. Similar features are to be found elsewhere throughout the ancient world. However, the mystery remains as to how these ancient peoples came by their knowledge often without sophisticated equipment which is only now available too modern man.

Strange Sightings & Reports

The following odds and ends are emails received from readers and a few unusual MUFON CMS reports:

These incidents took place during my childhood years up until the day I graduated from high school. We lived in an old three story brownstone apartment building with a basement apartment. The whole building was owned by family. Initially, my grandmother's sister lived in the basement with her family and her two brothers occupied the second floor. My family was on the first main floor and my grandmother was on the 3rd floor. She believed in the superstition that if you moved down a level if you lived in an apartment you would soon die. She continued to climb the three flights of stairs even though she was very arthritic.

As the years passed by her sister and her immediate family eventually moved out and the two brothers on the middle floor passed away. The basement level was now empty and my mother, father, sister, brother and I continued to live on the first floor. The second floor was empty and my grandmother still resided alone on the third floor. There was never a thought of renting the vacant rooms.

On several nights, while we were asleep, out of nowhere the front door would slam waking everyone up. After a few seconds, there would be footsteps moving up the metal stairs followed by footsteps, shuffling and creaking above us on the second floor. My father would jump up and rush to see who broke into the house. No one was ever there of course and things would be quiet again for a few weeks and then it would happen all over again.

The apartment was usually cold and drafty so we would all stand next to a wood stove in the pantry because it was our heat source. On several occasions we would see a faint apparition of someone walk towards the stove. Once in awhile we would think someone had come home and would say "hello" only to be greeted by nothing.

When I turned 10-years-old my mother was sleeping on the third level in order to help care for my grandmother. My mother recalled one incident when she woke and saw me standing beside her bed. She asked what I wanted, I turned, walked away and disappeared. There was another incident where she rushed out of the bathroom on the 1st floor and was frantic because she heard her mom scream for her. My sister and I were shocked because we didn't hear anything.

On another occasion my grandmother's aunt had been sick and was in the hospital. We were driving home and my mother was resting her head against the window when suddenly she raised up and shouted "oh my god, Aunt Jane just died...I just saw her face." My father looked at the clock and it was about 7:00 pm. When we got home the charge nurse was calling to let us know that she had passed away at the exact time.

The most memorable incident happened when my brother and I were talking about the weird stuff that had occurred in the house over the years. I said "yeah like the old guy who used to watch us sleep". I was sort of half-joking since I wasn't sure if he had ever known since it was never brought up between us. He turns and he answers "you mean the guy that stood behind the dresser in the living room...who leaned over with his hands behind his back?" As he was talking he, duplicated the way the apparition moved exactly. That really freaked me out!

MUFON CMS - November 1999: I was working on a large 160 acre farm in Pendleton County, KY. I had several duties. On this day in question I was eating lunch and a local friend stop bye to say that he had saw some hunters sneaking on to the property, I told him that I would let them get settled down and after my lunch I would go out and round them up. So I finished lunch got my gun and started walking down the fence row my plan was to cut into the woods and sneak up on them. I had been out there around 45 mins to an hour and as I was making my way though the woods suddenly something step out from behind a tree. I yelled friend or foe and point my gun at it. I couldn't believe my eyes there standing in front of me and my gun was a 3 and 1/2 foot tall gray being, suddenly I had the thought that it was talking to me though my mind, I had the felling that it was a young female and it was scared and telling me it was going to run up a little knoll, just then it took off running up that knoll. I followed it with my gun barrel as it reach the top of the hill there was a flash of light and a door way opened up out of no where. It was about 4 ft wide and probably 8 ft tall It was brightly light inside and I could see the little being standing in it, now it looked like it was wearing a tight black suit of some sort. Suddenly out of the corner of my left eye, I see what looked like something was running toward me I wheeled around and right in front of me was a lizard like man about 5 to 6 ft tall and he was holding a long staff like thing in one hand, His face was more insect looking to me though, and it had dark blue eyes. Again I caught the feeling that it was the little females father, or guard. Okay I know this sound weird but just then to my right there was a 7ft or 8 ft brown hairy Bigfoot creature just standing there. I didn't hear him speak but I did hear in my mind NO! don't hurt Him. Just then the lizard looking one, looked right at me and his eyes changed right in front of me to a yellowish gold. I turn to run and when I did. I was just standing there in the dark in the woods, yes it was night time. I stood there in shock for a moment trying to collect myself. I looked around and I was alone. I started my walk out of there. Back to the farm house, when I got back there was another farm hand that said where have you been we thought you got lost. I didn't say a thing. I come forth now, because I have tried to live with this for years, but recently I was watching TV the History Channel show Ancient Aliens and saw something that looked like the lizard man on the TV.

It brought back memories of that day and I started having dreams again and thinking strange thoughts like, could that have be a portal I saw the little one go into? Are they interdenominational? or time travelers? Is this why no one finds Bigfoot bones? and so on, also I'm having dreams about our future. I need to know what happened to me, out there that day. So I come to you for help.

Hello

When I was growing up at night I would have several episodes of being pinned to my bed.

It wasn't until 1996 on going to bed that I had a nervous feeling again as I tried to go to sleep. I woke up suddenly several hours later as I was pinned to my bed, only this time I was fully conscious and I could see.

In my bedroom ( I can only describe as Greys) there were three beings. I was being held by one of them so I struggled and pushed it of me. As I did this the bigger of the three moved forward and I was caught in his gaze and I became motionless and could not move. In his right hand he held an instrument that was of a gold or brass colour at the handle and was another 8'' long but this tapered from an inch in diameter from the handle to a millimeter or less at it's tip, like a spike, made from a crystal like material and shone with a very bright white light.

I could not move and he put this instrument up my left nostril. It was pushed up to between my eyes and maybe an inch to an inch and a half back. The pain was one of the worst I had experienced. This being seemed shocked that I was feeling this and was fully aware of what was happening. As the instrument was pulled out I became aware of another being standing in the corner, only this one was a male human in a dark blue jump suit and dark aviator style glasses.

All of a sudden I was released and all four moved very quickly out of the bedroom door onto the landing where with a bright intense white flash of light they were gone.

I felt in shock and questioned if this was a very real dream. I got up and went to the bathroom put on the light, looked in the mirror and noticed a small trickle of blood coming from my left nostril. I have had feelings of deep anger about this and I have 90% of the time numbness and tingling (only slightly) on the left side of my face and head.

I have also been left with a link with the biggest of the three beings from when he linked with me. Even now if I feel the thought pattern of him I link mentally with him. At first he recoiled in fear and as time went by with irritation, now it is just acceptance.

I hope I get answers and that this perhaps helps somebody.

Love and Light.

MUFON CMS - New York - 10/26/2010: Sometime during my sleep on that night, I was hit with a strong frisson of fear and the immediate impression that I said (to who, I have no idea) either 'Don't take me' or 'Don't leave me'. Immediately after that I felt, physically felt, firm but gentle pressure on both my biceps above my elbows, pushing me backwards onto my mattress and into my pillows. At the exact same moment, I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and calm, and almost felt sad when the pressure ended. I regained awareness that I was in my bed a short time later, and didn't feel any sense of fear or anxiety, just kept the calm, peaceful feeling. My dog didn't seem to have been bothered by anything, and nothing looked out of place in my room. But I was certain something had happened.

The next morning I awoke with an amazing sense of joy, purposefulness, and was incredibly energetic and productive at work. The only odd thing was that I heard a ringing/buzzing in my right ear that lasted for days after. But since then I've been a bit more attentive to the phenomenon, which has prompted a bit of a paradigm shift in my thinking. Something else occurred later that has me thinking perhaps we are going to be given the opportunity to meet these 'others', whoever they may be. I'm going to try not to get too freaked and try to keep an open mind and heart.

I was surprised to see your post about Area 51 and Dugway Proving Ground. I used to live in Terra, Utah form 1992-1996. Dugway is where my kids went to school when we lived there. I became friends with a lady who had a daughter that was in one of the same classes as one of my daughters. She lived on post and her husband was a pilot, she once told me that things were being moved from Area 51 onto Dugway. She seemed very disturbed about it and wanted her husband to transfer to a different post. All of it made me very uncomfortable, back then I didn't believe in that kind of stuff and I thought that maybe I made a bad choice in being friends with her. I ended our friendship as slowly and easily as I could (because our daughter's were still friends) and that pretty much ends my story. There are a lot of people in Terra and all over Skull Valley who are (or were living) during the time of the nuclear testing. I met alot of people who were down-winders and many people who had cancer or lost family members. It is a closed group in that area, even the natives that live there keep to themselves. If they did move something from Area 51 to Dugway, the government chose well.
