Now this the real scary part of the paranormal. If you are drawn to ghosts, poltergeists, aliens, Bigfoot and other supernatural spooks, then you need to listen up because there is a real danger in hunting these things. Honestly you put yourself in all kinds of jeopardy when you seek out these fascinating entities. You are in more peril than you may know. One of the worst threats that you may face but not know about is radiation exposure.
There are several risks involved when you entangle yourself in paranormal phenomena. These include physical manifestations such as scratches, burns, and other injures caused by supernatural entities. And yes, such things do happen. No really, they do occur. People get hurt from these energies. For those out there who think this is all fun and games and that paranormal harm is not real, you simply do not know what you are talking about.
Environmental factors at haunted locations present real problems. These dangers consist of things like asbestos, toxic mold, gases, and other environmental hazards that you might not even think about when embarking on your ghost hunts. Old buildings can have a lot of poisonous materials in them. When you think about heading out to some notoriously haunted place, you likely wouldn’t even think of such risks. However, they are there, and ghost hunters have become very ill from being in these environments. They develop lung, heart, and other health problems after spending time in these places. So be aware of this if you are heading to a location and protect yourself.
People who live in haunted homes should also be alerted to the fact that they are likely being exposed to some type of environmental problem. Whether they have high levels of electromagnetic fields around them which can affect their bodies, or if there is toxic mold, CO2 gases, there is danger. If you live in a ‘haunted’ place, you should get your property checked for these things. People who live in homes that have lots of strange happenings often suffer multiple illnesses. It would wise in that situation to get the environment checked to make sure there is not an environmental factor that is making you sick.
But a hidden danger that most people do think about is radiation. Yes, you read that right. People who are in settings that have a great deal of paranormal activity often have high levels of radiation around them, either from the ghostly or alien appearances or simply from the home in general.
Geiger counters show spikes of radiation when paranormal manifestations are present. Background radiation does not go that high, so it would not explain the rapid increases when supernatural entities appear. Radiation is either present or being created from the beings, the environment, or the people present. At the current time, we don’t know which is causing the phenomena.
This is a real danger and I warn those who do this regularly to take precautions when dealing with alien ‘contact’ or ghostly/poltergeist manifestations. Well known paranormal researchers have been either diagnosed with cancer or asked where they were subjected to high levels of radiation. Doctors actually have asked ghost hunters if they have jobs that put them into situations where they are exposed to radiation. And no, other than paranormal work, they do not.
There is more to this field than people realize. Many think it is made up or fake, but it is all too real. People get hurt and sick. Sadly, the medical field has continually let these people down. Too often, those exposed to the environmental hazards have been blown off by doctors who didn’t listen and frankly didn’t care. As a result, these people got sicker and sicker when they could have been helped.
My advice to you is that if you are in these haunted locations and suffer from symptoms, get checked out. And if the doctor blows you off (and they likely will), go to another doctor and another until you find someone who will listen to you. This will be difficult because the medical field in the US has mostly become a money game where doctors only see patients as dollar signs. If you don’t have an easy to diagnose illness, they will kick you out of their offices and act like you are crazy. It is so sad that these victims have to be re-victimized by the medical field when they could have been helped. You wouldn’t believe the stories of how doctors have treated these patients. It would make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. These individuals who live in haunted homes and become sick are not believed by anyone, and this takes a heavy toll on their psyches.
If you are involved in this field and have been to or go to ghostly locations, be very careful and protect yourself as much as you can. This field really is in its infancy, so we don’t know the long-term risks associated with it. As it becomes more acceptable to study, more scientists will become involved and our knowledge of these things will skyrocket. For the ghost hunters, alien hunters, and Bigfoot hunters out there, you are truly honest to goodness pioneers who deserve a pat on the back. I think this field will eventually teach us a lot about our planet, new power sources, abilities of our own minds, and health in general. Stay tuned as we learn more.

Do aliens have different colors within their species like humans? Just as we have people with various skin tones, do extraterrestrials come in different ‘flavors’ too.
Alien abductees and experiencers have described all kinds of various looking entities. From little grey men, to tall white creatures, people have claimed to see just about every type of being from outer space.
The interesting part comes when you hear these same stories from those around the world, from all different cultures, who see the exact same thing.
The grey aliens seem to be the most common entities encountered. Within their groups, you find little 3—4 feet tall grey henchmen who do the actual kidnapping. These little guys are the ones who come and grab you then take you to the taller grey creature who is typically referred to as ‘doctor.’ The tall guy is the one who is in charge in the lab. Even stranger than that, people who have had these encounters have said that when taken to a UFO by the Greys, they have also seen giant praying mantis looking beings. And these mantis things appear to be in charge of all of the ship. In other words, the mantis are the brains behind the operation. At least that is how the majority of abductees describe it.
Interestingly, others portray the aliens as not being grey at all. Some entities seem to have skin like a mole, almost see through and very, very pale. Others have skin that looks completely white. The white creatures tend to be very tall and more humanoid. Still others refer to Reptilians who look exactly as their name sounds.
So where do the blue creatures come in?
There are a number of abductees who say that Greys are not grey at all, but they are bluish in color. They have the same characteristics of the traditional grey alien except that the color of the skin is more bluish. Perhaps this is a distinction that depends upon the observer. Basically, it is a matter of personal opinion and what an individual remembers. They may be one in the same.
But that is not the only type of alien who has this blue hue on their skin. Several abductees have seen blue aliens who are quite different from the traditional grey creatures we would recognize as ET’s. People say these tall Blues are more humanoid in appearance than Greys. Their facial features are similar to us. They tend to be taller than humans and bald. Their eyes are described as ‘pretty,’ unlike the Greys. It kind of reminds you of the entities from the movie Avatar. Perhaps there is more truth in that movie than we ever thought. Personality wise, the Blues come across as shy, kind of like a child who peeks out from behind his mother’s skirt. That is the way people describe them. They remain in the background, peeking out to watch. It seems they would rather observe than interact overall.
The Blues are said to be more empathetic. That is, they seem to be able to tune into human emotion better than Greys. In short, people who come into contact with the tall Blues tend to have better experiences than those who come across the little Greys. This could be a result of only finding Blue alien contact cases that were positive. Perhaps there are abductees out there who have had bad experiences with the tall Blues who simply have not spoken about it.
When abductees or contactees talk about conversations with the Blues, they say communication is indeed telepathic. A person can form a question for the ET’s in his mind and the aliens will answer before you fully form the question in your head. Like the Greys, however, they do not directly answer questions and are extremely evasive when dancing around providing actual answers. And they are not very good at ‘dancing.’ What I mean by that is that they fumble and provide stock mumbo jumbo answers to abductee questions.
People get answers like humans need to come together and hold hands and that if we all just get along, then all of our world problems will simply vanish. That isn’t to say that there is not some truth in that. Our minds are very powerful. Our thoughts can dictate our realities. If you have ever read a book about mind over matter, you will see how our thoughts effect our bodies. Positive beliefs matter. Fighting over petty things keeps us from focusing our energies on more important matters.
Yet, the kumbaya answer is an overly simplistic response to extremely complicated problems. In these cases, the aliens never give concrete answers that can be beneficial in a very specific way. For example, let’s look at human health. These entities haven’t provided any cures for any diseases that can be given to more than one person. There are examples of abductees who after ET contact are healed from serious illnesses. While it is great for that one person, how about the rest of the people with these terrible diseases? Tough cookies for them I guess.
While contact with Blues seems more positive, there just isn’t a lot there to say that the Blues are totally benevolent either. They are still involved in abductions. People are taken against their will. Medical procedures are done to these people without permission. Their memories are tampered with. Doesn’t sound too kind to me.
One thing that is consistent in ALL abduction and contact cases is the alien entities expressing how superior they are to us. Interesting when you think about that. While these beings claim to be far advanced, way more advanced than us, they don’t provide any meaningful help to humans. Messages from them always include something like save the oceans or heal the Earth. This is a no-brainer. Anyone with any sense knows we need to have clean air and water to live. Not exactly Earth-shattering news. There’s never a cure for cancer or a way to heal MS included in their superior advice. It is all generic bumper sticker instruction that truly doesn’t do much for us. At the same time, they are using humans for their own purposes. They are taking from us; not helping us. In the long run they may be assisting humanity, but for those suffering now, they are virtually useless.
Apologists for these beings claim that aliens are merely trying to help our species along by ‘tweaking’ human beings and waiting for evolution to take over. While that may be a fine goal, it ignores terrible human suffering in the present time. By taking that approach, the beings profile themselves. While they may be superior in some ways, they are stunted in other ways. They seem to lack basic empathy and the ability to understand and be impacted by human suffering. This is a flaw.
These entities can do complex medical procedures on humans and heal them instantly in order to get genetic material and/or place implants in the human subjects. In doing so, they have demonstrated that they can help us. They just won’t. Let me put it to you this way. Imagine having a human friend who could 100% cure your child of brain cancer but refused to do so, telling you he had his own plan for humans. Would you say ‘well, he has his reasons,’ or would you scream at him and come to the conclusion that this isn’t your friend at all?
I know people have very different views on this subject. People who have positive experiences will vehemently defend ET’s. Even certain researchers will do so. And for those people who have these good contacts, their personal encounter and result is benevolent. That just isn’t the case for everyone. A large number of abductees suffer from their contact, both mentally and physically. They get sick afterward. They lose their jobs and families. Contact is anything but benevolent for them.
This reminds me of serial killers I studied. I interviewed 25 serial killers and mass murderers and worked hundreds of serial homicide cases. Sadistic serial murderers told me that sometimes they would be kind to people in their lives. One serial offender actually volunteered at a soup kitchen during his killing spree. Another donated meals to the homeless. When I asked them why they would do good deeds while at the same time slaughtering people, their response was always the same. They decided when they were good, and they decided when they were bad. In that way, they were like God as they determined who lived and who died. It was sheer narcissism and arrogance, coupled with psychopathy. Kind of reminds me of the aliens.
Instead of being forthright, open, and honest, ET’s use trickery, violence, and deceit to achieve their goals. They kidnap, torture, and then mess with the minds of abductees afterward. Sorry people, that’s not friendly.
There appear to be several different races of ET’s visiting our planet. They may look different and operate in various ways. However, none of them are particularly open about their goals. Very little help is provided, if any at all. At the same time, they are not killing all of us, so bravo to them for that.
There are countless examples of UFO phenomena around the globe which are not able to be explained away. When you put all the abductee stories together with UFO cases and physical evidence, the information will send a shiver down your spine. There is something out there, and some of it appears to be hunting humans.

I wrote this article back in 2015 and it resonated with so many people that I am re-running it. Enjoy.
Aliens do speak. They talk just like you and me. Well, maybe not exactly like us, but they do communicate. While it has been widely reported that aliens have visited us and that telepathy is the preferred manner with which they ‘talk,’ there are many incidences where humans report aliens ‘speaking’ in clicks. I have heard the sounds when examining witness recordings, and the sounds are somewhat similar to dolphin clicks. However, it is not exactly the same.
It is important to note that those who have come into contact with extraterrestrials have had vastly different experiences. Though the majority report negative contact, there are a few who have had pleasant interactions. In either case, aliens did communicate. Telepathy was more common, but the clicking is widely reported too.
The hallmarks of these encounters are many. First, in the ‘clicking cases’ as I like to call them, witnesses report seeing UFO’s AND aliens. They usually go hand and hand in these types of sightings. Either witnesses see a UFO immediately preceding the encounter or right after.
Second, unusual creatures are seen, often by multiple witnesses. The entities are described as having skin that looks rubbery and varies from green to grey. The body is thin. Strangely, people have trouble describing the head. Some say they just couldn’t get a good look at it. Those who did said that the creatures had big ‘eyes’ which either were blackish or were glowing.
Third, witnesses reported that the aliens did not want to be spotted. In short, extraterrestrials would hide and peek around objects to watch humans. This type of thing happens outside more than indoors. Frequently, it takes place near or in a wooded area.
When people catch sight of these beings, the clicking sounds are heard. It is as if the aliens are surprised when caught and then ‘speak.’ Usually these extraterrestrials back off once seen, but they do come back. It is like they become fascinated with certain people and want to keep track of them.
Fourth, witnesses also report hearing these clicking sounds coming from electric devices which are unplugged and non-battery operated shortly after seeing UFO’s and aliens. It is not clear whether the entities are using these devices or if something else is going on. But enough people have reported it to note it.
Fifth, most clicking cases are associated with abduction. While people may not necessarily remember all of their abduction time, they remember enough of it. Plus, they repot having fresh cuts or scars following these events. The cuts are symmetrical as if done intentionally, like a surgery. Almost always, those who go through this report pain. These are not good contacts. Victims say that they observe aliens touching and prodding them while expressing little to no concern for comfort. Though there may be one alien that shows compassion, the others are basically without empathy, like psychopaths.
The few people who report good experiences say they were not abducted. They only saw extraterrestrials and UFO’s and heard the clicking sounds. They were not victims of experimentation. This could be the result of one of two things. Either there are different types of aliens who use the same clicking sounds or those who report positive experiences have not YET had abduction. Sightings suggest that there are more than one type of alien.
In summary, the clicking aliens appear to be observing us. They tend to keep their distance but come close enough to be heard and seen, but they never engage fully. The majority of contacts produce intense fear and leave witnesses shaken. Abductees refer to themselves as victims because they feel violated. Having been observed and even taken without their consent, they are rightfully angry and frightened.
Because there is so much social stigma, those who have these contacts are reluctant to come forward. They don’t want to lose careers or be painted with the crazy label. There are so many reports worldwide which are consistent that you have to question what is happening. There is no way governments can be oblivious. But still, the alien concept is mocked widely. One wonders if this is done on purpose to keep people quiet.
In any event, if you have had such an experience, please let me know. I keep your name confidential. I’m only looking to research these incidences and gather information.

Why is it that those who have had alien abduction experiences tend to have a lot of health problems? I’ve interviewed over a hundred people who have had this happen, and with a few exceptions, they all suffered from their contact. They had problems both mentally and physically. The effects can be horrible.
- Mental Effects:
Those who have had alien abduction experiences can feel like they are crazy. I’m sure to many who are reading this think that anyone who claims to have been taken by aliens is mentally ill. While this is true in some situations, in other cases, that is simply not the case. People involved in these abductions will go to therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists. The vast majority are given a clean bill of mental health. Other than things like Anxiety disorders or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, there are no diagnoses of schizophrenia, delusional disorder, or psychotic disorders.
However many do get diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after their alien encounter. Remember, in order to have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a person has to have lived through something that is so traumatizing or scary that it leaves a mark on the individual’s mind. People with PSTD have flashbacks of the experience. They avoid anything that reminds them of what happened, and/or they are extremely easily startled. It all goes back to the bad, scary experience. Those who live through ET abduction often suffer from PTSD, though there is no other experience in their lives which would cause this disorder.
Anxiety is a common thread which goes through the lives of abductees. The anxiety interferes with their sleep and their daily lives. These people can develop Obsessive Disorders such as locking windows and doors, re-locking them, and then repeatedly getting up to make sure the doors and windows are locked yet another time. Sleep is terribly hard to get, and when they do sleep, bad dreams haunt them. Over time, the nightmares reveal more about their alien encounters. They will see an eye, a big black almost lifeless eye, and then wake up shaking.
The next nightmare finds them laying nude on a table, panicking while little entities put long needle-like instruments in their bodies. It hurts when the ET’s do it, yet the abductees can’t move. The victims awaken sweaty and terrified in their beds. These are the types of nightly dreams they endure which slowly seem to reveal what they have been through. Most people will understand when I tell them that these nightmares seemed real; different from a normal dream. Those who have had dream visits from loved ones who have crossed over know exactly what I am saying when I point out that some dreams are so real you know they are not simply dreams. This is what the alien abductees go through.
Now think about enduring something like this and then knowing that no one is going to believe you. It reminds me of rape victims or people maimed by doctors who try to report their attacks only to be laughed at and demeaned.
I worked a lot of cases as a criminal profiler where initially rape victims were treated like garbage. When these victims told me these horrible stories, it just broke my heart. This commonly happened with prostitutes because people wrongly believed that they could not be raped or it didn’t matter if they were. Likewise, in the cases where people are hurt (and even killed) by doctors, it is common knowledge that fellow doctors lie for one another in order to cover up the crimes. Sadly if you have been the victim of a doctor, it will be very hard for you to get any help from the medical profession. You will be lied to. You will be laughed at. You will be mocked. And you will rarely be able to find help. This is similar to what alien abductees go through because like in the medical field, there are people who have a vested interested in keeping these things quiet.
I give you these examples so you can understand what these poor people are going through. A person who is attacked and not believed is hurt worse. A victim is a victim. Whether the person is a rape victim or a paranormal victim, that person deserves help. Being victimized twice makes things ten times worse. It is not fair to victims and it increases their pain and anxiety.
- Physical Effects
For those who simply dismiss abductees as lying or crazy, there are cases where physical evidence exists. There are those who have seen UFO’s and/or have been abducted by aliens who suffer from radiation exposure. They have radiation burns on their skin and even their eyes. As I have pointed out in my other articles, someone who is making up a story or is mentally ill cannot magically produce radiation burns on their bodies. And there’s more. There are those who say that when the ET’s touched them that they experienced a burning sensation on their skin. It was like the alien touch was acidic. They too ended up with burns on their bodies. Acid type burns are different from other types of burns, so it is worthy of exploring. Damage is done to the body. So with radiation exposure and other burns, something is going on here.
Next, abductees frequently develop sicknesses that they didn’t have before their encounters. Commonly, they get some kind of autoimmune disorder and start to have headaches. They will get tingling in their bodies as if their nervous systems have been impacted. In fact, some develop seizures AFTER the experience. It is important to note that the seizures appear following the contact since there are parapsychologists who point out that seizure disorders may actually CAUSE paranormal phenomena. Yet these seizure cases only make up a tiny number of abduction cases.
Women may begin to have pain in their pelvic areas and even start to have vaginal bleeding immediately in the days following alien contact. **I have noticed that it is more common for women to suffer from health problems after contact than their male counterparts. That does not mean that men do not develop sickness after abduction, because they do. However, the illnesses tend to be more severe in women overall.
Strangely there are cases where someone who has been abducted actually gets BETTER health afterward. This type of case is rare, but it does happen. For these ‘lucky’ people, prior sicknesses or injuries are miraculously cured. And they tend to enjoy long periods without health problems of any kind, even colds or the flu. I say they are ‘lucky’ in that they did not suffer the ill health effects after contact that others did. That is not to say that they did not suffer while the abduction was happening. During and after, these people were terrified and often will have unbelievable levels of stress and anxiety. It effects their mental health and family life in a terrible way. These ‘lucky ones’ simply did not have the physical health problems that plagued others.
There is more to this that I will be writing about as time goes on. The point I am trying to make is that there are aspects of the alien abduction phenomenon that are very hard to explain and dismiss. People who make fun of abductees or dismiss them are truly doing them wrong. There are suffering, hurting victims who are living through these nightmares, and they deserve to be heard. They deserve to be respected.
When we look at these things, we can ask whether various Military forces are involved. Certainly, Militaries around the world have been involved in shady things in the past. But how could they come up with the same after-effects for abductees? How could they get to different places around the world? How could they make people see the same things in Africa, Australia, England, Ireland, Chechnya, Russia, Mexico, Brazil, and the USA? Would all the Military forces be able to produce the same hallucination? What about remote places? What about the miraculous healings? What about the sicknesses? What about those abductees who all of a sudden become poltergeist agents and/or very psychic?
The more you study this subject, the more you realize that you don’t know. All we can say for sure is that something is happening. That something is clearly paranormal. It is sad that the subject is still mainly taboo to academic researchers because so many hard sciences are involved. Biology. Physics. Chemistry. Geology. Electronics. All of these subjects are encapsulated in the ET phenomena. I believe that someday this subject will be taken seriously because it will have to be. When that happens, I believe we will get long sought answers to many of life’s questions and at the same time unlock the potential and power of our own minds.
