Author Anders Lidén from Sweden sent in these contact experiences. The first case involves Gösta Carlsson, known in Sweden as the Pollen King.
In 1946, in the village Ängelholm in Southern Sweden, Gösta Carlsson (1918 - 2003) had a UFO experience that changed his life.
Gösta and his father had a bee farm where they tried to get out as much pollen as possible. Gösta worked at SJ, the Swedish Railway Company, and had no knowledge whatsoever about medicine or biology, etc. He was an engineer.
One day, he went for his evening walk near the so-called "Siberia Forest" when, around 8 pm, he saw a flying saucer land about 30 meters from him. (There is a monument at the place today to commemorate his experience). Gösta saw 3 human-like, beautiful beings walking out from the spaceship and they communicated with him telepathically. Gösta got some insights from them about how to get out more pollen from the bees. He kept his secret for many years (until 1971 when he went public to tell his story) and used his insights to start the production of pollen-based medicine. In 1956 they succeeded and they started the company Cernelle, and Gösta became a multimillionaire. He invested a lot of his money in the local hockey team Rögle BK, and in the sixties the team, against all odds, reached the top in Swedish hockey league. In 1963 Gösta started a daughter company Allergon where they produced substances for production of medicines for allergies.

Interview with Julie L. Shepard
Julie Shepard maintains the ETMENA blog, which focuses on abduction accounts in the Middle East and North Africa. (http://etmena.blogspot.com).
As we start this interview, can you first tell us bit about yourself?
I am Dutch and Native American. I follow Native traditions, including work with Spirit Guides (do not use the word "belief" here as they are very matter-of-fact for Native people). Natives such as the Navajo believe they once lived underground with the "ant people," who had large heads and eyes not unlike the Zetas. My tradition is Haudenosaunee, which is Seneca, Iroquois. My mother was a holocaust survivor and so was my father; so there was trauma on both sides of my family. Because of that I grew up very early feeling like an outsider and also, it made me multicultural and interested in cultures from a very early age. I saw little green aliens on my roof when I was about five, and since then I have seen craft mostly far away, but also less than 500 feet above me at one time.
I began early on working with the Berkeley Psychic Institute, and I was a medium and healer at the Spiritualist Church. I am empathic, I can read energy, and I have used these skills to help immigrants and refugees with job training, cultural bridging, and empowerment, and ascension training. I have worked with foreign cultures my whole life and presently live in Agadir, Morocco.

Some weeks ago, we published an article by Miguel Mendonça who co-authored the book Meet the Hybrids with Barbara Lamb: Meeting the Hybrids. We followed up on that with an article where we asked members of our panel for their thoughts: The purpose of the hybrids. Now, three of the hybrids that were interviewed for Meet the Hybrids respond to that article.
I really enjoyed the article because it helps me to understand that there are other agendas than that of benevolence. Although all my experiences have been benevolent, there is no spiritual ascension without challenges, but understanding the bottom line of all beings is to ascend to that highest state of Creation, becoming All That Is.
In all the years of counseling star seeds to help them understand who they are and why they are having contact with other Universal beings, the only comment about hybrids were that the hybrid children were more loving than humans. They didn't make fun of others, nor did they find faults with anyone, and they found all beings to be interesting, beautiful, and loving. One such child that had been taken on the ships was a Chinese child living in the USA. She told her father that she liked the hybrid children so much more than humans because they played with her, they were eager to teach her how they did things, and they smiled and actually told her they "love her". This is a bold statement when our own humans say they feel safer with the hybrids, they feel love from them, and they are not judged by them.

Owners of Unusual Skull Seek Help of Veteran Researcher for Future Scientific Study
In the late 1990s, a strange-looking relic known as the “Star Child” skull first began to appear on the UFO lecture circuit. With its odd, bulbous shape, the skull appeared to bear obvious cranial deformation, causing it to have marked similarity to the alleged alien “Grays” represented in UFO abductee literature since the 1960s.
This similarity had been what prompted researcher Lloyd Pye, whose interest early on had involved reports of anomalous primates and mysteries of human origin, to take up the cause, championing the skull as bonafide evidence of alien visitation to Earth. Thus, throughout the rest of his life Pye proceeded with raising funds for scientific tests, in an effort to credibly present what became known as the “Star Child” to the world. Pye himself had said, upon first being shown the specimen, that it became his hope to “shove it down science’s throat.”

Some Experiencers (ET abductees, contactees) have conscious recall of their ET experiences, some have partial conscious recall and many have no conscious recall at all. Conscious recall of an ET event doesn't affect the credence or validity of the event. In other words, just because an individual consciously remembers their ET interactions, that doesn't mean the experiences are more real or more valid than someone who doesn't. Nor does it make it any easier to live with. On the face of it, it might seem advantageous to have conscious recall of your ET visits, but some Experiencers would give anything not to remember. In the case of traumatic experiences, it's often a blessing. Some Experiencers want to remember, others want to forget. There's no right or wrong.
But back to why you don't remember. Psychologists spend an inordinate amount of time and energy arguing among themselves about why humans remember and why they don't, but probably most would agree that there are some basic reasons why you may not remember your late night ET rendezvous.

When the idea was first conjectured that aliens were not simply gliding by planet Earth for a look-see, but instead might be performing hands-on experiments on humans; the concept was astounding. No longer were we pondering whether UFOs were "real," and whether the occupants were "real." No, we were way beyond that. We were thrown into a realm of speculation over whether these experiments, that seemed to be of a reproductive nature, were indeed taking place.
From the earliest reports of abductions, we had farmer Antonio Vilas Boas in 1957 claiming he saw an object land in his field, was then dragged onboard and later forced to mate with an alien woman with a pointed chin and catlike eyes. This report was not given wide publicity at the time. Fast-forwarding to 1961, we learned that a New Hampshire couple driving back from a vacation in Montreal was buzzed by a strange craft and ultimately taken up into it. The wife, Betty, was subjected to an intrusive examination, involving a long needle being inserted into her navel which was very painful. The aliens described this as a pregnancy test, similar to a procedure now known as amniocentesis. Meanwhile, her husband Barney endured a strange cup-like device placed over his groin area. The purpose of this procedure was seemingly to extract sperm. Later Barney developed a circle of 21 wart-like growths where the device had made contact with his skin. They were each 3/4 of an inch long and Barney ultimately had them removed.

I’ve mentioned elsewhere that UFOs have presented themselves as a modern, continuing mythological phenomena manufactured to be assimilated relatively painlessly by the common folk. That myth is created by two factors: First, the physical factor: The UFOs are assumed to be of ET origins because they seem to be piloted craft that perform impossible antics in our skies and they seemingly are engaged in activities other than flying around. Yet they remain unknown in all other salient aspects of their obvious existence. That predicament for us is entirely contrived, not happenstance. All we have are suspicions and indications as to who and what they are and their business here. For decades, they have created, cultivated and sustained this perfect scenario of their own mysterious myth.
Second, for anyone that cares to look at the data and make rational judgments, the governments of the world, and especially my own, the U.S., have made a concentrated effort from the start to prevent people from recognizing the existence and then the intent of the ETs. It is ludicrous for anyone to think that governments see nothing and know nothing of the UFO phenomena. Such denials are not done for your protection, peace of mind and well being as much as done for control. Some level of collusion between the ETs and world governments must be taken into consideration to form the complete, balanced picture.

About nine years ago, the first issue of the Journal of Abduction-Encounter Research (JAR Magazine) was published. It contained three articles on hybrids and on what could be the purpose of their existence. While Helen Littrell shared her experiences with Raechel, an alien-human hybrid who was her daughter’s roommate at college, Budd Hopkins’ and David Jacobs’ articles focused on a hybridization program with an agenda of infiltration, possibly even colonization.
In his article Meeting the Hybrids, published in JAR in February 2016, Miguel Mendonça also talks about the possible purposes of the hybrids. He concludes it is likely that different groups of extraterrestrials are active, with different agendas. One group seems to be dedicated to Service to Self, while another group to Service to Others. Both groups are creating hybrids. The hybrids Jacobs and Hopkins describe belong to the Service to Self category, while the ones Mendonça and Barbara Lamb interviewed for their book mainly belong in the Service to Others category. The Service to Self hybrids appear to have an agenda of social integration and colonization. The Service to Others hybrids "saw their creation, and the intentions of the ETs responsible, as being a fundamentally benevolent enterprise, which seeks to preserve and enhance human life, principally through the expansion of human consciousness."
We asked members of our panel for their views on the matter. Nadine Lalich, Tom Minderle and Helen Littrell sent in their responses:

By Miguel Mendonça
In 2015 I met ET-human hybrids for the first time—eight of them. Within two months, my reality was expanding so fast that I had to let go of trying to understand it all intellectually. It became clear that this cannot all be understood with the mind. We cannot turn their information on consciousness, love and oneness into personal knowledge without opening our hearts and occasionally letting the mind take a back seat.
That is just one of the key learnings that came out of the research that Barbara Lamb and I undertook for what has become the book Meet the Hybrids – The Lives and Missions of ET Ambassadors on Earth. The hybrids have access to a level of understanding that answers not just the big questions of ufology, but many of the biggest questions that humans have ever thought to ask.
Let that sink in for a moment. Then let the questions flow: how do they know so much? Who are they? What are they? Why are they here?
This brief introduction to hybrids will only scratch the surface of what we uncovered in the research, but it will give the reader a sense of the complexity and multidimensional nature of the subject.
This has major implications for ufology, and indeed the wider enterprise of human inquiry. I will close with some further thoughts on what this suggests for our continuing research in this field.
