I have taken the time to think about human methods of communication and there are more than I imagined. How can a new mother tell when her baby is hungry, thirsty, happy, in pain, and more just by the sounds her child makes? She seems to know. Is this a form of telepathy between the two souls who have been solidly attached body to body by a cord for nine months? One uses vocal tones in order to deliver their desires to the mom who in turn can choose to use soothing sounds in return or words that in some way tell her child she will take care of the infant’s needs.
Throughout our lives we either use or learn of so many forms of communication it is difficult to realize how many more there could be in the outreaches of the Universe or depths of our oceans yet to be searched or even discovered here on our own earth. We have no idea how many forms of life here on our planet attempt to communicate with us as humans and we fail to recognize that. For example, are our plants communicating thirst by a show of dry soil and drooping leaves? Chickens refusing to lay, cows not producing milk, coral beds dying, whales beaching themselves, and much more. We are also hearing occasional sounds coming in from “distant” space and stranger yet frightening sounds coming from the earth that we have no idea how to interpret. Surely this all has important meaning.
We are very selective people. If we are deaf, we learn sign language in order to communicate with those around us. In turn our loved ones and often friends show us respect by doing the same and an amazing type of close communicative contact takes place that not many have in common. There are those special individuals who learn it in order to teach and translate for a wider audience. These are the people who are open to sharing this language with strangers who wish to have a better understanding of the “world of the deaf”.
If we can’t hear or see, like Helen Keller. The brilliant woman who came to try then succeed and teach her how to make her wishes known was Anne Sullivan. It took both of them to make this work, much thought, trial, and error was put into what finally worked for them and eventually what was used for many like Helen. This, another type of language – human touch. In the beginning Helen felt the tapping of Anne’s fingers on her palm – finally in turn – Helen placed her fingers on Anne’s lips, her thumb on Helen’s vocal cords. Before she passed away in 1968, a new language had been developed, Helen had a college degree, was teaching others, lectured, and many are following in her footsteps today. Just stop for a moment to think, consider, contemplate, and how about visualize that against all odds a new language was created for those who did not understand the human differences here. There was a total non-acceptance of this type of handicap when Helen was born so no attempt was made to envelop her into her community and further. We have since made great strides in this area and working hard to develop methods to understand each other when our own human bodies can be born so different from one another.

Introduction (Manuel Lamiroy)
Some weeks ago, an author was peddling his book on Facebook in which he claims that all cases of alien abduction are really cases of encounters with demons. He categorically denies that any other beings could be involved. It is a narrative that is commonly promoted on social media. But that does not mean it is true. On the contrary.
I have personally spent over 25 years investigating cases and have exchanged information with a network of researchers. I have also spent more than 15 years as an administrator of discussion forums where contactees can share their experiencers in a safe environment. The topic of aliens and demons was one of the topics that was explored in extenso.
The consensus on the forum was that both exist, and that the beings people perceive as extraterrestrials are not demons, and vice versa. But, yes, sometimes the behavior from some of the beings encountered can lead to them being mistaken for one another. That does not mean they are the same. There are some clear differences.
- A first difference has to do with physicality. The extraterrestrials people have encountered are usually physical beings, while demons are non-physical. (Though there have been encounters with extraterrestrials that are somehow less physical than we are). One factor that makes this clear is the existence of witnesses. There are multiple cases where an alien encounter was witnessed by other people who could see the beings as physical beings, which is not the case for demonic activity.
- A second difference has to do with technology. Extraterrestrials use craft with advanced technological capabilities. They use implants, futuristic tools like needles that can go through the navel without leaving a mark, tractor beams … They routinely transport beings through solid matter, and possess antigravity technology. Their craft can suddenly accelerate to dizzying speeds and perform 90 degree turns and have been known to switch off nuclear missiles. None of this is consistent with patterns of behavior that are assigned to demons.
- Many abductees mention being submitted to advanced medical procedures, which they clearly label as being medical in nature.
- There also are many encounters with extraterrestrials which result in the contactee experiencing some kind of healing. This, too, is inconsistent with the behavior of demons.
- Many contactees also mention that they were given an ecological message.
- Quite a number of abductions happen to people being taken from their cars, which, again does not happen when demons are involved.
- On the forum, we had several people who have experienced both, i.e. abductions and encounters with demons. They unanimously said they are different beings and look different in their natural state.
- And there are of course all the cases of positive encounters.
So, to me, it is clear that the narrative that 'cases of encounters with aliens are encounters with demons' is false. Still, I thought it would be a good idea to submit the question to our panel members. No surprises there: they all have unanimously come to the same conclusion that both demons and extraterrestrials are real, and different from one another.
Read below what they each had to say.

How other dimensional beings assist us on our way to the best versions of ourselves
Humanity has been aware for quite some time that the world needs change, the change often being associated with healing. The need for change includes the planet, its environment and inhabitants, all sentient beings. While the planet itself, guided by its own wisdom, has been in this process for a long time already, the living world, largely controlled by its most evolved species, has been following at a slower pace, realizing only recently that much more of an awareness-raising effort is urgently required to accelerate the process.
What is our planet healing from and what do we humans need to heal from? And what, in the first place, has brought us to this situation, since our planet has always been equipped with everything needed to nurture the whole living world perfectly? Was it the intervention of some intellectually and technologically superior but not ethically evolved enough intelligence, trapped in a duality mindset, considering as natural the principle of survival of the fittest, and egocentrism as a necessary condition for progress and growth?
There is no doubt that a higher, all-inclusive awareness could have protected us from diversions. An awareness that we are beings organically and otherwise connected to our planet, and at the same time members of a large cosmic community, an awareness of our true history, of where we came from and what we are here to do, everything anchored in reality as it truly is. Also an awareness of having access to infinite life energy available all around us that we can use to thrive, in full health – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The noosphere self-managing itself, living in truth. Truth is health.
The extraterrestrial and other civilizations from parallel worlds have long been our models of higher awareness manifesting in harmonious otherworldly societies with all the resources needed for abundance as a condition for peaceful cohabitation. High moral and ethical values are a natural extension when nobody lacks anything on any level, including the willingness to selflessly guide others along the proven evolutionary route they themselves have already walked and benefited from.

There are now many hundreds of documented cases in which people have been healed as the result of a UFO encounter. Most of these involve healings of physical injury, illness or disease. However, there are also cases on record in which people have been healed of mental illness. What follows are two cases of people healed of suicidal depression.
One such case took place in October 1997 to David Perez of West Covina, California. It was only a few weeks after the mass suicide in San Diego of forty-nine “Heaven’s Gate” UFO cult members.
Perez stepped out of his apartment to smoke a cigarette when he observed an unidentified craft hovering a few hundred feet away. Says Perez, “It looked like a ship…All I saw at first were the lights all the way around it. I never saw lights like that around a helicopter or an airplane.” As he watched, the object started to flash lights at him. Perez’s cousin and girlfriend came outside and also observed the object, as did his neighbor. At one point, the object sent down a beam of light which apparently struck Perez. As he says, “This red bright light went on, and it seemed like it kind of penetrated my pupils, and my vision turned red. Everything that I saw was tinted red…that’s when I got kind of scared. I thought it had screwed up my vision…I couldn’t talk, and I couldn’t move or anything. I don’t know if it was the fear or what, but I just couldn’t move anything.”
A few minutes later, Perez had an argument with his girlfriend, got into his car and drove off. He reports that the object followed him from West Covina to Canoga Park, where it suddenly appeared again over his car. A strange feeling of comfort passed over him and he realized that the encounter was affecting him physically. Says Perez, “I was kind of stressed. I’ve always had problems with my back. I used to cough up blood once and a while. I was kind of sick. I had pains in my chest and on my side. Ever since that night, I haven’t had any pain at all. And I was also suicidal. Ever since that night, I haven’t been. I’ve been good. I’ve been feeling really good, really healthy.”
Perez also started to experience premonitions and developed an interest in meditation and psychic development. He believes that the UFO is responsible for his spiritual awakening. As he says, “I kind of feel for some strange reason that they have something to do with God. Ever since then I’ve started talking about God.”
A second case occurred in 1992. John (pseudonym) was living in southern California and battling suicidal depression. On April 10 of that year, he made a fateful decision. “I drove to a location in the mountains to commit suicide.”
Around noon, John found an isolated area outside of Lake Isabella. “When I got there, I got out of the vehicle and walked around it, looking around my surroundings to make sure nobody was watching…After about fifteen minutes of making peace with it and saying goodbye, I was now ready.”
John held a 357 magnum, loaded, with the trigger pulled back and ready to fire. “I was no more than ten seconds from pulling the trigger,” John writes. “I noticed something moving out of the corner of my eye.”
John became upset because he thought people were watching. He turned his head and saw two figures. “Both stood facing me,” writes John, “one motionless and the other one leaning…leaning just enough into my peripheral vision that I would see them. They were exactly like the small grays you see, like in the Roswell accident.”
John could barely believe his eyes. “I saw them, twenty feet away from me. I even had a loaded gun and could’ve shot at them and probably hit them…[but] when I noticed that I was not alone, it simply voided the suicide, and I left, which I thank them for really.”
As John drove away, he realized it was now 11:30 p.m., and there was a full moon. It was as if the moment the ETs appeared, darkness had already fallen. He had seen them only in the nighttime, which meant that there were about ten hours which he could not remember.
While the experience prevented him from committing suicide, it had other repercussions. “It took years for me to actually accept what I saw with my own eyes.”
Now, however, John has accepted what he saw. “There is no doubt whatsoever, 100 percent absolutely positive beyond any doubt that I saw them, twenty feet away from me.”
According to the Center for Disease Control, suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States. As can be seen, ETs are not only curing people physically, they are also curing mental illness. Cases like these show a positive side of ET contact, and reveal how truly advanced the ETs are.
BIO: Preston Dennett has researched UFOs for 35 years. He has written more than 100 articles and 26 books, including: “The Healing Power of UFOs: 300 True Cases of People Healed by Extraterrestrials.” He currently resides in southern California.

One of the more intriguing and lesser-known aspects about encounters with extraterrestrials, are the numerous accounts of healing encounters, which are far more prevalent than people think. The survey by FREE, the Edgar Mitchell Foundations for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Encounters revealed that about half of respondents had experienced a healing encounter that affected either themselves or a relative. That is a staggering statistic.
When it comes to the motivations of the visitors for these healings, people have opposing views. This shouldn’t come as a surprise as it is usually the case with assessments of their intentions. Some see the healing encounters as proof of their benevolence, while others just see it as them taking care of their resources, the way a farmer takes care of his cattle.
John Carpenter: "I have never seen where aliens healed somebody’s physical ailments as a deliberate act of benevolence or kindness. Instead, they might report they fixed something because it was interfering with their plans. For example, one abductee was clearly color-blind as certified by his uncle, a doctor. His wife would never let him dress their kids. After one of his abduction experiences he recalled that they were implanting something behind his eye. They told him that he would notice 'as a side benefit' an increase in color perception because they had to fix that so that what they were doing would work right. His uncle the doctor was surprised when he tested him and found that his color vision was now perfect!"
We asked our panel for their thoughts:
- Gwen Farrell was kind enough to share the chapter of her book that deals with healing encounters, which offers a nice introduction to the topic.
- Suzy Hansen shares both her personal experiences, as well as cases she has come across in her work, and that are included in her book.
- Bill Konkolesky also shares his personal experiences, as well as those of others.
- Denise Stoner shares her personal healing encounter at length.
- Tom Montalk starts with one experience he had and shares his thoughts on the phenomenon
- Nadine Lalich shares one healing encounter she experienced as a child

Nadine Lalich has been a trusted member of our panel since we started our 'Ask the Panel' series.
Her new book, Evolution - Coming to Terms with the ET Presence (Alien Experiences), is now available.
(At the time of writing, only in paperback. Kindle edition will follow soon).
Here is a short video:
This is the introduction on Amazon:
It was late on the evening of June 15, 1991, when Nadine and her friend, Pamela, pulled into the empty lot of Banjo Bill Park in Sedona, Arizona. After the long drive from California, they planned to sleep in the van and then head into town the next day. Sometime after midnight, Nadine awoke to the sound of people outside walking around the vehicle. Alarmed, she quickly sat up, and a moment later, the rear door of the vehicle opened lighting up the interior. Reaching toward her was a thin grey arm and a hand with only three fingers! The terrifying experience would be the first of many to come, but it would take thirteen more years before she would find the courage to speak about it. When she did, an unexpected shift occurred: the experiences began to include a military presence.This book chronicles Nadine's experiences during her lifetime involving a variety of non-human life forms, some of which appear to be physical and others potentially interdimensional. Included are descriptions of ten different ET species, their behavior, and possible intentions. Over a dozen alien and military technologies are presented, along with descriptions of crafts, underground and underwater bases, medical and psychological testing and procedure. The book includes 50 illustrations and photos.
Until I took the time to investigate, I never knew there were thousands of other people having experiences similar to mine. Hundreds of dedicated investigators have been researching for years, and a vast amount of verifiable evidence has accumulated that I knew nothing about. In 2004, after 13 years of secrecy, I began to talk about my experiences, a difficult decision considering the negative connotations and disinformation associated with the subject. Once I accepted the fact that we are not alone in the universe, a dramatic shift occurred in my consciousness and spirituality, and I developed a profound sense of purpose. My compassion and commitment to the earth and all living beings became fiercely ignited, along with the desire to see an end to the political and military chains that stop humanity's progress. With this book, I have fearlessly shared my experiences. In doing so, I am stepping to the front line of disclosure, committed to doing all that I can to support the evolution of human consciousness which will allow us to become cosmic citizens. That, I believe, is our destiny.

Often the inspiration for these panel questions comes from conversations I have had with experiencers. This time is no exception. I was talking to someone recently who said she felt blessed by her contact experiences because she felt they were always around. It made her feel safe. She never needed to feel lonely because there was always someone to watch over her.
It reminded me of other experiencers who shared a similar sentiment that they were never alone. But they didn’t like it, and felt their privacy was being violated.
The phenomenon of "often or constantly feeling the presence of the visitors contactees interact with" is fairly common. What seems to greatly differ is how people experience it, as the two examples above demonstrate.
We asked our panel members for their thoughts and/or experiences.

Interview with Julia Sellers
There is so much research going on across the world about general existential questions such as who we are, what our purpose is, our ultimate destiny unfolding through the ongoing process of evolution, where we are at the moment in terms of our consciousness, potential and our current human condition, the awareness of which is crucial for a self-perception that would enable us to position ourselves appropriately into the broader universe and get a proper perspective of our purpose and related life trajectory.
While I came across Julia’s book I Have Seen It Tomorrow, I was attracted by its title alone, because I have a feeling, shared with many people in today’s world, that things must somehow be turned upside down, looked at from a different perspective, examined from an opposite to normal direction – like reading, writing, looking at a picture – allowed to exist in a different order to that we traditionally conceive, because something is not right about the established concept of our world, something is missing and something is wrong and this must change, be complemented or corrected or eliminated altogether.
Julia Sellers, writing under a pseudonym Iris Krst, is a researcher of anomalous phenomena, primarily of out-of-body experiences.
She is interested in quantum physics, free energy, anomalous cognition, in merging the topics of science and religion, in shattering limiting beliefs.
She is also a lecturer, author, and coach. She had her first out-of-body experience in 1995, and since then she has dedicated her time to studying them.
Once engaged in journalism, translation-interpretation, consulting for international relations, and teaching about the behavioural problems of children, she now devotes her time to issues related to STEs and NOTEs, she is a member of the Society for Scientific Research and the Society for Afterlife Research, a member of (I)SEN – International Spiritual Emergence Network, and a contributor to the Journal of Exceptional Experiences and Psychology. [Editor's note: STE = Spiritually Transformative Experience; NOTE = Non-Ordinary Transcendent Experience].
The topic of our conversation was paranormal phenomena including Julia’s main field of research – out-of-body experiences, with an emphasis, however, on extraterrestrial contact as one among the many paranormal experiences humans are increasingly exposed to, and the psi-factor as its crucial component, discussed also in one of the recent series of articles in the magazine JAR.
Julia: Maybe we will start the interview with the topic of out-of-body experiences. They are also an essential part of what we call non-human intelligent contact, formerly known as extraterrestrial contact. Now we are talking more about non-human intelligences, or NHIs, because when the contact happens it does not necessarily have to be extraterrestrial. We call this intelligence an entity, or entities, because we don’t really know what it is and thus what to call it. It could be anything, it could be pure energy, pure plasma, it could be discarnate spirits of this world. But it could also be the Grays, other extraterrestrials, ghosts that live in nature, etc.
