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.
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.
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.

It may sound strange, but having great sex can open spirit doors. Yes, I know, that sounds weird, but it really is true. Think about when you have hot sex. When you are passionate, you produce energy. Your mind relaxes, and you can almost fall into a trance. Basically passion excites the mind and body. Your sexual state of mind and energy combine like dynamite which can blast open a door to the other side.
Those who live in haunted locations will experience this, though they may be reluctant to talk about it. They are often embarrassed about what happened and feel shy that someone was watching them in their intimate moments. So witnesses are less likely to be open about what happened.
However, you don’t have to live in a haunted location to experience this. There are many people who have told me that paranormal activity BEGAN when they were having sex. Though they were fully into what they were doing, they couldn’t help but get distracted when they saw shadows moving around them as if watching. They describe the shadows as being blacker than the darkness, and the shadows had form. Usually there are more than one shadow beings when this happens. What scared some of the witnesses was when the shadow creatures bent down to get close. One woman said ‘it was like they were leaning in to get a better look.’ She said the ‘thing was a pervert.’
People also report objects moving around the room while they are making love, things that couldn’t have been knocked around by their sexual activity. Whispers were common too. It was as if they were on display in some gallery, and entities were talking about it. These were isolated locations. There were no other people around, and no radio or other devices were on. Furthermore, a few told me that lights would flash on and off when this happened. They would hear thumping sounds out of nowhere when they stopped. It was like something was banging on the ceiling or walls. And no, there were no people in rooms above them having fun of their own!
Two men spoke about seeing what looked like an alien when they were having sex. It appeared in the corner of the room, and they both saw it. They swear that it had big black eyes and a large head, and it seemed to ‘walk through the wall.’ They are convinced that the entity was an extraterrestrial. In fact, there are many who say that the ‘spirits’ watching sexual behavior are aliens who are observing us on Earth.
On the other hand, several witnesses reported seeing human figures that they could see through. Those people swear that the entities were ghosts. The truth is that we don’t know exactly WHAT is watching when people are intimate. But there is SOMETHING that is attracted by human passion.
An interesting point was that those who said that they saw alien creatures did not continue to experience paranormal activity after the sighting. Yet those who saw black shadows or see-through humans DID continue to experience paranormal activity. This was a clear distinction and points to multiple types of entities.
For those who did continue to have paranormal activity, the ‘hauntings’ tended to be negative. This makes sense because one would think that decent, good entities would respect privacy and not watch intimate encounters. Think of the peeping tom who stalks neighborhoods at night. These aren’t stellar citizens. They are predators. So this raises questions about the safety of those who experience paranormal encounters while having sex. That is, do those beings who come to watch sexual encounters have bad intentions?
Another theory is that the people themselves CREATE the phenomena. That is, the individuals present are somehow interacting with their environments and causing the poltergeist activity.
One thing is for sure. The mentality of being sexually excited coupled with the energy produced by sexual behavior opens some kind of portal or draws/creates entities. It seems to act like a magnet to them. If you have had such an encounter, please let me know. I keep witness information confidential.

“It sounds nuts,” said one abductee. “If my best buddy told me this story, I’d never believe him,” said another man. “I still don’t believe it, and it happened to me,” gasped another abductee.
At the beginning of an alien abduction case, people will report seeing some kind of unusual light right before the experience. The light appears “liquid-like.” People report that once they see the light, it then follows them. The light moves at an extremely rapid speed, and it is at this point that memories become fuzzy. Time goes missing. People will find themselves in another location having no memory of how they got there.
This can even happen to a group of individuals. When it does, the group typically does not talk about the experience right away. Though time has passed with no explanation, abductees say they felt very tired and didn’t want to talk about what just occurred at that time. Days will pass before people begin to come out of their brain fog and discuss what happened.
Sadly, they are not believed at first. They are viewed as crazy or liars. This makes disclosure all the more difficult. After all, why tell people about this scary experience who are just going to make fun of you?
Yet unusual things keep popping up in the wake of the bizarre happening. Poltergeist activity occurs in abductee homes and can even follow them from place to place. A state of hyper-fear sets in. Because these people will frequently suffer from flashbacks and strange nightmares along with poltergeist activity, they develop trouble sleeping. They keep getting up to lock and re-lock doors and windows when they try to rest. Any little sound terrifies them. It gets so bad that they get up multiple times a night to check doors and windows.
Next, the abductees can suddenly have an irrational fear of something they never were afraid of before. It has been suggested that ET’s plant this fear indirectly in the minds of people in order to black out what really happened. In other words, instead of remembering being with aliens, an abductee may not remember much at all at first. Memory will be hazy and unclear. Then, the individual may remember seeing a deer or an owl and suddenly have a deathly fear of them. Basically, the fear associated with being taken by extraterrestrials gets transferred to the hypnotic image that has been put in the memory’s place. All of a sudden, a grown man may be terrified of a certain animal or something similar that has never scared him before. It is an irrational fear that is very strong. However, with time, the abduction memories do bleed through, and people remember their odd encounters.
Along with the intense fear comes paranoia. After the event, abductees will sometimes feel as if they are being watched, and it freaks them out. There are times they will catch a glimpse of a face in the window or a shadow out of the corner of their eyes. Something just doesn’t feel right. Now this doesn’t mean that they are being watched, yet these people certainly feel like they are. Some abductees I’ve spoken with have said that when they feel as if they are being watched, they will rush to the window to see if there is someone outside. Second, they will look to the sky to see if there is anything there. In some cases, they stated that they saw strange lights in the sky at that time.
As a result, anxiety skyrockets along with doctor visits. Though some people may not know this, it is quite common for abductees to seek out medical guidance for their problems. For many, any pre-existing medical condition seems to get worse. Coupled with the extreme anxiety, they feel lost and desperate. Because of that, they go to doctors. It is more typical that abductees do not tell medical personnel about what happened at first. Instead they simply seek help for their existing medical problems and the increasing anxiety.
At the same time, abductees become obsessed with a subject they may never had thought about before. Obsessed. They will spend a great deal of time with their new obsession. Some fixate on math. Some take up art. Others zero in on medicine. They will spend a ton of time involved in this new fixation. They can’t explain why they become fascinated with a certain subject. All they know is that suddenly they just have to investigate and get involved in this new venture.
It is as if these people have a breakthrough of some kind. They see things that they hadn’t before. Suddenly they understand advanced mathematics or medicine. It is as if information has been downloaded to their brains. In many instances, these people find themselves going in a totally different direction in life. They can change jobs, move to a different location, get divorced, or simply change who they are in general. The ET experience seems to induce a dramatic change and compulsive behavior in people.
The after-effects are clearly there for anyone to see. Whatever caused their experience, there is dramatic change in human beings afterward. And these abductees want answers. I never met one who did not want to know what really happened and why it happened. Those I spoke to wanted to understand what happened and were more than willing to see doctors to rule out medical issues or medication as being a cause. Most would rather be declared sick or mentally ill than actually having encountered extraterrestrials.
Certainly, there are ways to explain these patterns of experiences without referring to aliens. Obviously the first go-to answer would be mental health. Are people who go through these things simply psychotic? For some, the answer is ‘yes.’ There are people I have spoken to who are obviously out of touch with reality. When you suggest seeing a psychiatrist and a doctor, such individuals react badly. They are convinced that aliens got them and there is nothing anyone can say or do to sway them another direction. They do not question whether they are sane or not. They ‘know’ they are sane and aliens are stalking them. There is no room for doubt for them. This is a small number however.
On the other hand, there are others who question everything. They are not convinced at all that they have had contact with ET’s. They want answers and are more than willing to see all kinds of medical specialists to get to the bottom of their experiences. They say that if they were deemed mentally ill, that medication and therapy could fix them. In other words, they were not married to the idea of having been taken by extraterrestrials. In these cases, the people do go to psychiatrists and other medical doctors in a quest to find the truth. The results? No psychosis. They were deemed sane by board certified psychiatrists. In some instances, there were medical issues. However, the illnesses would not produce hallucinations or delusions. Things like ingrown toenails or bulging lumbar discs were discovered. But nothing that would explain away what happened.
In a very small number of cases, seizure disorders were found. In such cases, the alien abduction situation can be explained away because seizure disorder can produce hallucinations and lost time. A person can feel, see, taste, and smell things that are not there. Though the experiences were very realistic to the individuals, unless there was more than one person going through the same thing at the same time, reality points to the seizure disorder as being the culprit. Dr. Barry Taff discusses the link between seizures and paranormal phenomena, and I strongly suggest you read his publications to learn more.
Alien experiences become more difficult to explain away when groups of people have alien contact occur at the same time. And that does happen. Psychiatrists may say it is a group hallucination. The problem is that victims suffer from physical problems from the abductions. There will be scars that form overnight. Big scars that shouldn’t form so quickly. Lumps appear on areas of skin that are damaged during the experiences. Some have evidence of radiation exposure. No matter how much you hallucinate, as far as I know, you can’t irradiate yourself doing so. Multiple people experience these things at once. There is the heart of the matter. It becomes much more difficult to dismiss when groups go through this. Though the idea of ET’s can seem ridiculous, so is suggesting that groups of people massively hallucinate, cut themselves, irradiate themselves, and all have the same hallucination at the same time. Now you don’t have to believe extraterrestrials are causing this, but something is. That something is worthy of study.
Or course there is always the possibility of government shenanigans. The US government has been involved in some pretty heinous experimentation on human beings in the past. What is to say that these alien encounters are really ET’s? Could it be the government doing some kind of research and/or testing? Who knows. It is something to consider.
The point is that many people from all different backgrounds around the world go through this phenomenon. If alien, one has to presume that motives are not so pure. If they were acting in our best interest, they would not operate secretively. They wouldn’t have to. In fact, there would be people lined up to have contact and engage in research with ET’s. A lot of humans would volunteer, and there would be no need for ‘abductions.’ That’s just a fact. If aliens are here, they may not be killing us all off, but they are not doing much to help us either.
When someone who is down to Earth tells me he/she has had one of these bizarre experiences, I believe them. People have these weird things happen, whether ghost or ET related. Too many people are quick to dismiss those who speak about paranormal happenings. At the same time, if you talk to people in depth, many will admit to having had some kind of supernatural experience.

The term alien abduction either scares people or makes them laugh. It seems there is little reaction in between. However, as more and more paranormal shows make headway into popular culture, the notion of aliens visiting our planet has become more accepted.
Lots of people are interested in extraterrestrials. Who wouldn’t be? Intelligent life is something we all seek. It certainly is not out of the realm of possibility to believe that aliens exist somewhere.
There are many people who believe that aliens are already here and have been for a very long time. I’ve spoken to a large number of people who believe that they have experienced E.T. contact. After doing that, I decided to look a specific groups of people who have been through this. As a criminal profiler, I profiled serial killers for 20 years. After retiring, I’ve been working in the paranormal field looking for answers to the biggest questions out there.
So I went looking for people who had specific traits to see if the alien abduction experience is different for certain groups of people. In this paper, I am writing about alien abductions involving the deaf. Since they cannot hear, it was interesting to get a feel for their perceptions of their experiences.
Though most routine E.T. contact begins with either a high pitched noise or a clicking sound, the deaf could not hear such noises. Instead, they felt a buzzing or electrical type charge on their bodies. Many talked about seeing a light right before or at the same time they felt this vibrating or buzzing sensation. The light was described as being either white or bluish. And almost every person who experienced this said that when the light appeared, they got goosebumps.
One of the abductees was not fully deaf and used a hearing aid. He said that after sitting on his couch, feeling the vibrations in his stomach, he then found himself on very large table in a big room. He could not remember how he got there. There were 3 small grey colored creatures with large heads standing over him. The entities had taken his hearing aid out and seemed fascinated with it. The abductee stated that they almost seemed to fight over which one got to hold the hearing aid. These three beings were smaller entities who immediately acted subservient to a larger entity which came into the room after a few minutes. The larger being was very tall and had what the abductee described as a bug type head. It scared him so much that he passed out. When he woke up, it was the next morning, and he was on his couch. His hearing aid was not working right. It produced a lot of static which it had never done before.
Likewise, other abductees recalled being on a table, while others talked about walking through a dark hallway. The consistent factor was the entities. The descriptions tend to point to the grey aliens. A few talked about human looking beings who were extraordinarily beautiful or handsome. The role of the ones who resembled humans was to comfort the abductees. Though this was the purpose, it did not work well. The abductees said there was something ‘off’ or ‘different’ about these humanoids. Something was not quite right. Whatever happened, the entities were ALWAYS present. The abductees were never alone. They felt watched constantly.
It is interesting to point out that though this set of abductees are deaf, they could understand the entities speaking in their minds. It was a telepathy, and the people knew exactly what was being communicated. One entity asked why one female abductee could not hear like other humans and wanted to know why human doctors would not fix this problem. The only thing this woman could manage to think of was her family. She was so frightened that she could not provide any answers to these ‘monsters’ in front of her. Over and over, she pictured her family and prayed. She felt pain on her leg, but she did not see if an entity touched her or if some kind of instrument touched her. Because she was so scared, she tried not to look at them. Still, she would peek at them every now and then. She said that the beings appeared frustrated with her because she was almost paralyzed with fear and tried not to look at them. I asked how she knew they were frustrated, and she said that she felt their anger. In her own words: “you know when someone’s mad at you, like when you’re talking to someone who is mad.” In her description, she relayed how there was a feeling of contempt coming from the beings. In short, she said she felt hated by these creatures.
Several other abductees spoke of an alien putting its long finger in their ears. Not enough to hurt them, but enough to scare them. And scare them it did.
One of the grey looking entities told an abductee that they (aliens) have trouble understanding humans. To them, humans are unpredictable and have too much diversity which is not true of their kind (at least the ones involved in this case). In fact, from the descriptions, these beings appear very uniform in appearance, thought, and behavior. The Borg from Star Trek comes to mind since it appears as if when one alien learns something, they all learn it (like through some connected telepathy).
After the abduction experiences, all felt an impact to their lives. The majority suffered problems. Friends and family did not believe them, and many developed illnesses right afterward. A very small group looked at the experiences as transformative, and they changed their lives for the better. They became very spiritual and felt a peace they had never known. So the abductees do not have the same after effects. One wonders why some seem to get hurt while others almost seem blessed by the experience.
To those who have not read a lot about this, these stories may seem far-fetched. Scientists may say that neurological disorders can produce thought problems and hallucinations, and such a medical issue could explain the bizarre accounts. Yet, there have been people who have claimed to have been abducted who have gone through a battery of medical tests which have found nothing out of the ordinary except a suspicion of radiation exposure in one case.
Other skeptics will say these people are either mentally ill or lying. While it is certainly true that there is a large number of people who are not quite right in the head, I have reviewed these cases and most are professional working people who are educated and have no monetary or seemingly other reason to come forward with these accounts. They are not seeking money or fame. They simply want answers as to what happened to them.
SOMETHING is going on. Whether one chooses to believe that the events are real or fake, the experiences do happen to the people who go through them. We need more research to find out what really is occurring. Because if aliens truly are here, we’ve got a lot more to worry about than bickering between skeptics versus believers.
