When you look at what happens when people are taken by aliens, you find patterns. People who have been snatched by ET’s will often at first say the experience was terrifying. They can’t eat. They can’t sleep. Their lives are turned upside down. Yet much later, they will change their story and say the extraterrestrials meant no harm. They even can become fiercely defensive about the aliens. The questions is: how does a person go from suffering from PTSD to being fine with alien abduction?
There are many examples of this abductee mindset change, but let me give you a simple example. There are women who have been abducted and then became pregnant. They have fuzzy memories of entities doing something in their vaginal areas. A pregnancy occurs. Then, the fetus suddenly disappears after another abduction. At first the abductee is mortified. They feel violated and traumatized. But after time and the prodding of a regression therapist, they change their opinion. They go from saying they were taken, impregnated, and had a child stolen, to ‘no problem.’ It is like a shrug of the shoulders. When pressed about the subject, abductees will say that the aliens have their child, so it’s no big deal. There must be some good reason for what the entities did.
Whoa! That is a big change.
How did they go from being terrified to not caring at all? The key I’ve found is that a regression therapist or someone with different views intervenes. ET enthusiasts will point out that the abductee wasn’t hurt THAT much. After all, the extraterrestrials could have killed the abductees, but they didn’t. So, aren’t they good guys after all?
There’s so much wrong with this thinking that I don’t know where to begin. The best example I can give is this. What if you were abducted by a human predator, impregnated, and then taken again and the fetus forcibly removed from you? Would you say ‘well, he could’ve killed me, so he’s not all that bad!” Come on. We all know the answer to that. Yet in cases of alien abduction, abductees will excuse heinous behavior of otherworldly entities. The truth is that they do so because they cannot cope with the reality of the situation. After all, when you think about the horrors of these cases, the fear can be overwhelming. Who wouldn’t want to change the story? Who wouldn’t want things to be different?
As to the regression therapists, I see a problem with the power of suggestion during the sessions. Over the course of the regression, the therapist will often ask if the abductee gave secret permission at some previous time to be abducted. Now, of course, this is a loaded question and should never be used. Yet it is, and it is a clear suggestion which totally changes the course of the therapy. It puts a seed in the mind of the abductee.
The reason this is so concerning is that the abductee has a strong motivation to grab on to that excuse and hold on to it. It gives the abductee an ‘out.’ They can believe they weren’t taken and assaulted. They can think they agreed to it. It allows them to turn from a victim to a non-victim. It gives abductees a sense of control when there is none. But is it really true?
Let’s face it, if ET’s are taking you, you have no say in when, where, and how it happens. They do what they want, when they want, and how they want. There is no control here, only the illusion of control. Abductees believing they gave permission changes all of this. I completely understand why an abductee would seize onto this line of thinking. It is a psychological protective mechanism. It can allow someone to live a normal life when living day to day may have been difficult to almost impossible.
Abduction is abduction. Experiments are experiments. Unless you have given conscious permission, it is not all right. Still, some abductees have become strangely protective of the ET’s. They don’t seem to recognize that they are actively engaged in Stockholm Syndrome which is a coping mechanism for people who have been abducted. As time goes by, the abductee can feel positive emotions toward a captor. It allows the brain not to be in a constant state of anxiety. It lets the victim to feel a sense of control. This changes a horrible situation into something tolerable or even pleasant.
So, frequently you will see abductees change their stories from horror to love. There is a lot that goes into this change, and I am not sure the victims fully understand it. This is not their fault. They were thrust into a bad situation against their will, and they are making the best of it. If this thinking allows them to live a good life, then it is necessary. I am glad they have this relief.
Yet my point is, you cannot paint toxic waste and say it is beautiful. There are plenty of people who were taken and are distraught over their abductions. Their lives are in ruins. Their marriages suffer. Jobs are lost. Health is destroyed. There is no putting a positive spin on it for them. Is the only difference in abductees the mentality and belief afterward?
There is another factor that could be at work here, and it is disturbing. Since ET’s can impact our neurological systems and memories, who is to say that they are not simply wiping the minds of certain abductees and putting positive emotions in place? It is something that could explain how an abductee could go from being horrified at what happened to shrugging their shoulders. It is such an extreme change that it warrants further investigation. Please see the work or Dr. David Jacobs and Derrel Sims.
I am not saying that some people do not have positive experiences with ET’s. I know people who psychically reach out and have relationships with extraterrestrials. They share information and friendship. Those cases are totally different. They are not what I am referring to in this article. I am talking about nonconsensual abductions. We have so many questions, and really, the more I learn, the more I feel that I don’t know.
I do wonder if this lack of disclosure is done on purpose to cause confusion. I keep going back to this in my research. Secrecy breeds confusion. Confusion leads to anxiety. Anxiety keeps people upset. It is hard to make good decisions and progress when constantly being spun around. As we stand now, we know very little about ET’s. It seems as if they want it that way, and that has to make you question what is really going on.
