John Carpenter, MSW - Reclaiming Reality

There is little doubt that the gray aliens possess a powerful form of telepathic control according to research by many investigators – as well as my own UFO research as a Psychiatric Therapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist.  I learned a great deal from approximately three hundred hypnosis investigations between 1989 and 1997.  But I tried to keep a non-judgmental, level-headed, and logical appraisal of all the emerging information and fascinating detail.

Humans are very sensitive to anybody trying to control them or their lives.  A controlling marital partner is probably one of the major causes for divorce.  To have a sense that aliens are controlling our minds with their telepathic powers is, therefore, already an unwanted practice.  But we assume that this is negative and a bad thing.  But my research has shown that it happens to sedate, calm, or make a person comfortable with their presence.  It has also been shown that their telepathic messages help us forget or suppress memory of their visit, so that we can continue our lives without interruption, distraction, or feeling disturbed.

However, the aliens have greatly underestimated our emotions as human beings.  While our conscious minds may be fooled, manipulated, and temporarily controlled, our subconscious emotions KNOW that something out of the ordinary has happened.  Those emotions start giving the abductee disturbing nightmares or unexplainable, confusing images.  They may start doodling or painting these nagging images, feeling a sense of fear at times.  As in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), certain environmental cues, like flashing lights or the eyes of an owl, may trigger unexpected emotional reactions.  These intense emotions have been submerged and hidden – and do not know how to be processed and understood yet.

I think that the aliens did not want to disturb or upset our lives while they carried out their agenda of studying us and using us for their own needs.  Many of my subjects tell me that what angers them the most is that they did not ask permission or explain what they are doing.  Although the research shows the same kinds of procedures being repeated consistently and nearly predictably, the reactions of human subjects have been emotionally all over the place.  Some are inspired, amazed, and grateful for being chosen.  Others are just confused and perplexed with curiosity to learn more.  And many others are angry, feeling violated or abused. That is human nature – dependent on our personality, experiences in life, and attitudes.  If you sent one hundred people to see a movie at the theater, are they all going to come out from that experience with the same opinion and reaction?  No.  Despite all of them having the same exact exposure to the movie, their opinions afterward will range from “loved it – best movie ever” to “got bored and fell asleep” to “dumb movie and a waste of money.”  Yet, they all shared the same exposure to the elements in the movie.  This is why abductees can have such a wide range of emotional reactions when the abduction details are essentially the same general process.

But let’s get back to this aspect of mind control, induced forgetfulness, and screen imagery.  Why don’t they just tell us what they are doing and give us the opportunity to understand? Picture the Grizzly bear in the wilderness that sees a helicopter approaching.  As it hovers over him, he feels a sting and a numbing sensation and collapses to the ground unable to move, yet still conscious.  The helicopter then lands and two humans walk toward him as the tranquilizing dart makes it safe for them to approach.  They examine him carefully while he remains paralyzed and then tag his ear for later tracking and identification.  As they return to the helicopter and lift off the ground, the big bear only has a fuzzy recollection of the incident.  Does he wonder who they were and what were they doing?  Does he wonder why they did not ask permission or explain anything to him?  Why do they keep returning to visit him later?

I cannot tell you how many times my subjects described confusing images of four-foot animals: bald squirrels, deer, owls, giant gerbils, wolves, parrots, bunnies, cartoon figures, etc. But, no matter what image was seen, it was ALWAYS four-feet tall.  Why would a four-foot white owl stop their car?  Why would a four-foot hamster be at the end of their bed?  Why would a four-foot Disney character be playing outside and come to their window when they were children?  Because the aliens knew that their real image as an alien would be too scary or disturbing!  If they did not care how we felt, they would not go to this trouble of providing more comforting imagery.

Think of a small child about to get the dreaded shot in the doctor’s office.  As the doctor prepares the shot out of sight behind the child, a nurse shows a stuffed animal to the child and makes playful gestures with the loveable toy.  While comfortably distracted, the doctor then quickly injects the needle before the child is aware to react.  The nurse had also said, “Hold still, you will be going home soon.”  I cannot tell you how many times abductees heard the same telepathic message.  The alien did not provide any more information than the nurse did either. 

One lady, who had been stopped in her car by a bright light, panicked when she thought she saw an image of a gray alien in her rear view mirror.  But when she dared to look again, she now saw a loving Jesus sitting in her back seat – and felt reassured.  Other subjects may initially be comforted or at least not frightened by the images presented to them, but both their subconscious emotions and their logical mind cannot comprehend why that four-foot bunny was in their bedroom.  And why do they keep dreaming about those large bald squirrels?  Again, the human subconscious “knows better” because it was not fooled and manipulated like the conscious mind was at the time.  Just as with PTSD, these images and emotions haunt us until we deal with them, process them, and accept them at some point, consciously.

Hypnotic investigations were always successful for my efforts to get past the screen images.  While the conscious mind was very relaxed and “asleep”, the subconscious mind had its opportunity to finally explore what it remembered.  As we know that hypnosis is a very suggestible state of mind, I would deliberately try to stay with the screen image and suggest logical answers based on that image.  Therefore, the subject would have to go against that series of suggestions and provide the truth of his own inner recollections instead – largely because his emotions knew what the truth was.  Here are some examples of the questioning with the responses:

Carpenter:       “So as you look at that four-foot squirrel, describe the color of his fur.”
Subject:           “I don’t know what color that is – it doesn’t look like fur.”
Carpenter:       “But all squirrels have fur, right?”
Subject:           “Yes, but for some reason … this one appears naked with skin – no fur.”
Carpenter:       “But, you see the cute little nose with whiskers?  Does it twitch like a bunny?”
Subject:           “No – this is confusing … I don’t see a nose or any whiskers at all … strange.”
Carpenter:       “Take a close look at the squirrel’s little claws since he is standing up.”
Subject:           “Huh … odd … I don’t see claws – just four long slender fingers … huh …”
Carpenter:       “So he has the beady little brown eyes?”
Subject:           “They are beady – but much much bigger … and very dark and black …”
Carpenter:       “Does he squeak, chatter, or chirp like squirrels do?”
Subject:           “No – no sounds at all.  It almost seems like he talks to me through his eyes.”
Carpenter:       “You must be mistaken – squirrels can’t do that.  Take a closer look.”
Subject:           “That is no squirrel at all.  Oh, my!  It is a bug-eyed, large headed, skinny little man with gray skin and no clothes!  He is scary-looking! No wonder …”
Carpenter:       “It’s okay, I am with you.  Tell me what he does – what happens next?”

And that is how you can break through the alien-suggested image with careful hypnotic investigation by going along with the consciously recalled image while the emotionally-charged subconscious mind examines that image for truthfulness.  Once into the abduction scenario, this same technique can be used at other points to untangle confusing images which the aliens promoted as something else.  Sometimes the abductee will even remember the telepathically transmitted suggestion:  “You will think of this only as a dream tomorrow.”
