Reflecting back over the latter half of my life, dating roughly from the time of the “White Eagle Initiation,” recounted in Part 2 of the book, as the most obvious conscious beginning of this Contactee Memoir, I realize I have only very recently been able to fully accept the manifold of my experiences with off-planet extraterrestrials from a time in our Earth-based future. I also understand more about the earlier half too, even from the beginning of my 72 years on Earth—and what a long, strange … and unusually interesting trip it has turned out to be! I refer to this as my ‘Identity Convergence,’ the main impetus for offering this book-length story of what will probably be unbelievable accounts for many if not most people to take seriously. I would have been unsure of what to make of such claims myself only a couple of decades ago.
I started writing about the White Eagle incidents more than a decade ago to report on my unusual experiences having obvious UFO/ET links, which I felt needed to be documented. They had impacted me deeply, and as I slowly overcame my doubts, I didn’t want to forget some of the details of these bizarre events—the powerful imprints of the core experiences themselves were likely never to be forgotten! But then it began to occur to me that this sequence of incidents—that as far as I knew were unique—really were significant, not just for the sake of making a report but for projecting and honing my own remaining trajectory in life. As always, I was afraid I would never find out why these unusual events had happened to me—what it could mean and what it was really about. And I never forgot the similarly persistent insight I had when I was twelve years old that I should or would become a writer—but it would take a while because I had so much to learn before I would finally be ready. My whole “career” in life has led up to this ... And then it all came together nearly fifty years later with the “Coming of the Golden Eagles” (Part 3) … around the time I met Julie Loar, with whom I was able to make strategic contact (with a little help from our Dear Friends), as kindred spirit and delightful companion; deep mind-field investigator; co-author; and now lovely wife in our Grand Adventure together—and without whom I probably would never have been able to have the breakthroughs that finally allowed me to assemble the puzzle pieces. She was the catalyst, the Alchemical Philosopher’s Stone that provided the extraordinary insights to induce my remaining essential identity transmutation.
This latter stage of my contactee story that began with Julie and the Golden Eagles only five years ago—the excerpted accounts from our Telepresence Conferences with ETs and Celestial Guides, which is the sub-title of our *Five Star Series* of books—was largely revealed through so-called “hypnotic trances” that I conducted with her after I learned of her prior experience as a practiced hypnotic subject. The unfortunate confusion of all the varieties of hypnosis with “sleep” is still prevalent after a couple of centuries of experimentation in mainstream psychological investigations, such as they have been, yet without a clear understanding or differentiation. As “our ETs” have made clear to us, nothing could be further from the truth—discovery of which, as always, has been my main objective as would-be realist and sometimes romantic rationalist. Rather, ‘waking hypnosis’ (hip gnosis?) of the kind exhibited by Julie, is still a bit mysterious—she does it so easily and so well. I am now convinced this gift, talent or whatever it is, should be seen as a space-time viewport made available through the superconscious mind function of a few rare individuals who have been able to prepare themselves for such a quest. Julie, a modest person by nature and unsure how this enhanced psychic function actually works, is indeed a remarkably gifted “hypnotic subject” as I have been able to see in depth over many hours of working together with her.
