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.

What is a hybrid?

There are various types of hybrids it seems. For our glossary, the definition we arrived at—with input from the hybrids—was: a being which has been genetically altered to be more than one species.

How are hybrids created?

Another complex question. One of the hybrids was created as part of a military project, combining DNA from her human parents and two ET races. Four of the hybrids understand they had ET genetics introduced while in their mother’s womb. Commonly, they are composed of a number of ET races. Some call these their ET ‘frequencies’.

One of the hybrids described a process called ‘spinning’, in which the various genetics and ‘energetic imprints’ of the ET ‘parents’ are combined, in order to set up the template for the cell mass. This is then made ready for the being to incarnate on Earth to human parents.

Several understand they made an agreement as a soul to incarnate on Earth as a hybrid, and they may recall doing the planning while in that pre-corporeal state.

Another of the hybrids had several theories as to how he was created, including the possibility that, given his Mantis component, he may have created himself. As these particular Mantis beings don’t die in the way we understand, they can choose a new form as required.

How do they know they are hybrids?

Most of them uncovered their identity slowly, putting pieces together over the years as memories of ET visitations came back, visitations increased or messages from ETs came through more clearly.

They all have ‘guides’ or ‘star families’ they interact with in various ways. These guides may be ET, or human or animal spirits. Sometimes these guides offer hints, sometimes they are more direct with their messages. They can also use physical effects to enhance their messages.

It was common that the hybrids had no shock or surprise at receiving confirmation of their nature. Many expressed relief—a reaction far from what a regular human, I imagine, would have at learning such a thing.  

Why are hybrids created?

This is the question the hybrids themselves are most concerned with. What is their purpose—their mission? And what are the ETs trying to achieve through this enterprise?

This is, in my view, the most important information to come out of this research for the field of ufology. The answer depends on which ETs one is referring to. There are principally two classes: those in ‘service to self’, and those in ‘service to others’. Most of the ‘negative’ experiences with ETs may occur with the service to self ETs, who reportedly display little compassion for the needs of humans. The ‘service to others’ class are, in general, more like cosmic missionaries, and are here to help humankind evolve—to move through the ‘Ascension’ process.

Ascension is another contested topic. Some hybrids view it as a process of the planet and its inhabitants shifting from the third to the fifth dimension—becoming less physically dense, and some see it as more of a spiritual evolution, in the sense of becoming more enlightened, and living more harmoniously with ourselves, each other and the world in which we live. So both could be thought of as processes of spiritual development, but the term ‘spiritual’—as ever—has varying interpretations.

Both classes are creating hybrids. The activity of the ‘self’ class has been documented across two key books by David Jacobs, and the ‘others’ class by ourselves, and 17 years ago, by CristiAnne Quiros in her PhD dissertation. Many people have explored aspects of these subjects over the last few decades, but I refer here to specific studies of hybrids.

Understanding of the hybrid subject has been previously somewhat skewed towards a darker interpretation, as Jacobs’ work and conclusions have dominated the discourse. His research has pointed to a ‘colonization’ program, wherein certain ETs seek to take over Earth by producing hybrids which look human but can control the minds of other humans through their superior psychic abilities.

The dissertation of Quiros, a psychology graduate, was (to my knowledge) the first major study of the phenomenon which directly involved people identifying as hybrids. The lives and understandings of six—all North American women—were explored for the purposes of equipping the therapeutic community to assist hybrids and their friends and family. Quiros found that the 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—relating to the concept of Ascension.

Our research explored the subject in a similar way, but went deeper and wider. What became evident is that Jacobs and Quiros may both be correct in their conclusions—they are simply talking about different ETs. The hybrids noted that among the races we hear of regularly, there are often several varieties. For example, the reptilian hybrids in the book made it clear that they are connected to benevolent reptilians, and the male Mantis hybrid said that there are Mantis beings with very different looks and agendas.

Between these two classes of beings there may be a nebulous middle ground, wherein experiencers are being traumatized by ‘service to others’ ETs who may have their own reasons for giving people the experiences they do. One of the hybrids pointed to the work of Lyssa Royal and Keith Priest, who discuss this in detail.

Bringing these two strands of research together to form a synthesis is an important step in comprehending the apparently contradictory information that has been coming forth over the last six decades concerning ET intentions. If we give credence to both sides of the interpretation, we have a much richer, more comprehensible picture of what is happening on this planet, involving the work and agendas of non-human intelligences.

Missions, abilities and services

Linking into the Ascension process are the missions of the hybrids. Some have numerous aspects to their missions. They are equipped with special abilities that help them carry out these missions, which they will often deliver through particular services.

Their missions range from helping the Earth and its people and animals, to helping other hybrids and starseeds, to developing new technologies.

In terms of abilities, most or all of them have some psychic and healing ability. The healing may involve psychic function at the diagnostic level as well as the treatment level.

Hybrids as spiritual teachers

Within a month of commencing the interviews, it was evident that perhaps above all else, this type of hybrid is effectively a spiritual teacher. Their understanding of the journey of the soul, of the evolutionary process we are all undertaking, is often detailed and profound. This is a subject that refuses to get hung up on the material or the intellectual—no matter how much we may want to apply the standards of Western materialist science to it. John Mack concluded the same in his research. We need to be open to other ways of knowing, particularly direct experience. The book offers advice and techniques from the hybrids for pursuing one’s own Ascension, and even for connecting with ETs directly.

Beyond ufology

The hybrids take us right through and beyond ufology, and throw open a mass of questions as to what we may best do with their information, and how we may continue to make progress with this subject. If we accept the word of the hybrids, and work with their information and techniques personally, we find that ufology becomes too small a place for this exploration. The level of conceptual expansion and personal spiritual revelation available to anyone suggests that we revisit the definition of ufology, and ask whether this is still a useful term, or if it has now been outgrown.

The increasing contact between science and spirituality which is developing in the mainstream—as well as the continuing exploration of space—is opening up opportunities for the information that has been produced by ufology to connect with and contribute to these more conventional modes of inquiry. And given the unprecedented democratization of information flows in our culture, I submit that the time has never been better for those of us committed to expanding our understanding of reality to make progress in offering our research to the mainstream.

The hybrids offer the royal road to solving the mysteries of ufology, and so much more. Let us make the best use of this resource. After all, for many of them, helping us is built into their mission.
