After speaking privately with Dolores Cannon, author of The Convoluted Universe series, we agreed that specialized areas of the encounters that are normally viewed as controlled by the ETs can also be attributed to certain natural states the human body experiences when going through the encounter process.
The encounter process comprises of a number of extraordinary steps that seem to lie beyond the human condition, but when explored are quite simple, albeit rare, happenings. This includes sleep paralysis, altered states of consciousness, biochemical responses, and naturally generated bodily fear, all occurring at the same instant while half-in half-out of the sleep state.
The most notorious of these processes is the activation of ‘sleep paralysis’ during the beginning stages of encounter. It has long been thought that this is a controlling mechanism brought about by the ETs to enforce complete control over their ‘victims’. As discussed in the regressive ideology of victim-hood, the experiencers that are considering themselves to be victims are still living in a paradigm prescribing that they are not empowered to control their own lives. This victim-paradigm – initiated by the individual him/herself! – takes the control of the experience out of their hands, and places it outside themselves. Once this first step is lost (unconsciously, therefore through no fault of their own) and the experiencer believes individual control has been compromised, fear has become the foundation of the experience. Once fear has been established, the human body reacts by releasing fight-or-flight responses such as the chemical release of epinephrine (adrenalin), increased heart rate, and tunnel vision. Of course the end result of the failed flight-or-flight response results in… panic.
At the onset of REM sleep the brain ‘shuts down’ motor neurons by the release of specific neurotransmitters resulting in a bodily state termed REM atonia. Now it should be easy to see how sleep paralysis occurs. The mind ‘wakes up’ before the neurotransmitters stop REM atonia, thus the stimulation of the motor neurons is still at an inactive state. It was discussed during Part I that sleep paralysis occurs as a natural by-product of the human body as it undergoes a transition phase of consciousness. REM sleep is included in these transitional phases of consciousness as this state of the human consciousness leaving the body. As stated earlier, one of the prime forms of spiritual enlightenment taking place at this time of spiritual growth is the bridging of the spirit and physical while both remain fully conscious. That is where it seems the Grays are bringing the human; to a higher vibrational frequency that does not always include the 3rd density physical human body. In order for the 3rd density human body not to hurt itself, it automatically shuts down the motor neurons, just as it does when entering the REM state of dreaming.
Much as we humans have natural mechanisms to shut down motor neurons, so the Gray aliens have technologies to produce this effect for us. Of course, the technology is far beyond mankind’s own, but nearly all abduction reports claim that the Gray’s do use a small rod-like object (sometimes with a glowing end) to induce sleep paralysis. The obvious use of inducing sleep paralysis is elimination of the possibility of violent responses from the abductee. Many reports from the abductee have illustrated other functions in relation to this ‘rod’ – memory loss being one of them.
So, we have the Grays – that are not only extraterrestrial beings, but interdimensional beings – visiting us while the human body and the human consciousness are at the preferred state for contact. Quite possibly, considerably more trauma would take place if contact were made outside this state of consciousness. Although the contact experience is traumatic, much of it could strongly be argued as physical responses generated from the human individual by taking the victim ideology out of the equation.
An understanding of the various possible mechanisms that produce this state of paralysis and the knowledge that the mind is in an altered state of awareness is necessary in staving off the extreme ends of fear: panic, the results of which produce further memory loss, unwanted bodily chemical changes, and unusual mental decisions and processing of sensory data.
The mind will attempt to fill in the unknown gaps of what is exactly being experienced by using the imagination. The imagination naturally begins filling in the gaps of the unknown by building off of the predominate construct of the experience: Fear. The understanding and knowledge of what is causing the fear reaction can be used as a focal anchoring point to deny growth of the governing fear response. This retention of the negative aspects of perception allows the mind and spirit to become grounded and retards the illusory constructs trying to form in the psyche. This is vital to clear much of the distortion of the experience and gain better mental retention of the encounter.
