alien abduction and NDE
One of the most
documented and believable cases in UFOlogy is the experience of one woman's
aboard a UFO. Her name is Betty Andreasson
Luca who is a devout Christian. During her abduction, she was taken before a
being of intense light and love called "the One." This description of this being is
remarkably similar to descriptions of the so-called "Being of Light" encountered in near-death
experiences. Her first abduction occurred during her childhood and culminated with an
abduction experience that involved her whole family. Led by a number of teams of
highly-credentialed investigators, her experience is one of the most thoroughly
investigated cases ever reported in the annals of hypnotherapy. This page is mainly
focused on her experience as a child with the Being of Light
she calls "the One." The following are excerpts from
Raymond Fowler's book,
Affair: The Documented Investigation of a Woman's Abduction Aboard a UFO.
Raymond Fowler is also the author of the book
The Watchers and his excellent follow-up book The Watchers
II: Exploring UFOs and the Near Death Experience. For even more

of Betty Andreasson Luca
On the evening
of January 25, 1967, Betty Andreasson was in her kitchen at South
Ashburnham, Massachusetts. Her seven children, mother, and father
were in the living room. At about 6:35
p.m., the house lights suddenly blinked out for a moment. Then, a
pulsating reddish-orange light shined in the kitchen window. Betty calmed the
frightened children while her father rushed to look out the kitchen
window. He saw a group of strange-looking small creatures approaching with
a hopping motion. Five small humanoid creatures entered the house, passing
right through the wooden door.
family was immediately placed into suspended animation. One creature went over
to her father. The leader of the other four established telepathic
communication with Betty.
The leader was
about five feet tall. The others were about four feet tall. All had
large pear-shaped heads, wide catlike wraparound eyes, and diminutive ears
and noses. Their mouths were immobile slits that reminded Betty of scar
lines. Each wore a coverall blue uniform adorned with a Sam Browne-type
belt. An insignia of a bird was affixed to their sleeves. Their hands had
three digits. (Later, on the craft, they were gloved.) They wore boot-like
attire on their feet. They floated rather than walked.
fright was immediately calmed by an overpowering sense of friendship. When
she displayed concern for her family's welfare, the creatures temporarily
released her eleven-year-old daughter, Becky, from this strange state of
unawareness to assure Betty that she was all right.
Then Betty was
taken outside and brought on board a small craft resting on the side of a
hill that sloped into the back yard. The machine was
about twenty feet in diameter. It looked like two saucers, one
inverted upon the other, with a small superstructure on top. The small
craft accelerated and apparently merged with a larger parent craft, in
which Betty was subjected to the effects of strange equipment and a
physical examination. Then she was taken to an alien place and given
a bizarre object lesson that caused her to undergo a painful yet ecstatic
night, a 10:40 p.m., Betty was returned home by two of her alien captors. At
home, she found her family still in a state of suspended animation. One
being had stayed behind to watch over them during her absence. Then the
beings put the family - still under some type of mind control - to
bed, and the aliens left.
the aliens had told Betty that certain things had been locked in her mind.
She was instructed to forget them and her UFO experience until the
appointed time. She consciously remembered only a fraction of the
strange encounter; the power failure, the colored light flashing through
the window, and the aliens entering the house.
Betty, a devout
Christian, interpreted the creatures as religious or angelic in nature. The
subject of UFOs was largely unknown to her. Her education had been
limited to ten years of schooling, her basic interests included family,
church, and community-related activities. Not until much later did
she think of her experience as a possible UFO encounter.
In 1975, Betty
responded to a local newspaper story about UFO researcher Dr. J. Allen
Hynek, who was soliciting personal UFO experience information from the
public. Betty's letter contained such few data, however, that it was filed
and forgotten until an investigation in January 1977. The
investigating team consisted of a solar physicist, an electronics
engineer, an aerospace engineer, a telecommunications specialist, and a
UFO investigator. They employed the services of a professional
hypnotist and a medical doctor trained in psychiatry. During a
twelve-month investigation, they conducted an extensive
character-reference check, two lie-detector tests, a psychiatric
interview, and fourteen lengthy hypnotic regression sessions. Under
hypnosis, Betty and her daughter relived a consistent, detailed UFO
experience with genuine physiological reactions. Their
three-volume, 528-page report led to the conclusion that the witnesses were reliable
and sane individuals who sincerely believed the experience had really

UFOs and the NDE
by Joseph Kerrick
description under hypnosis of her experience of the One
in the preceding page is instantly recognizable as the same type of
experience reported by many experiencers, and even in many
cases the same IDENTICAL experience. It is a very basic kind of
spiritual experience, which has also been consistently reported throughout
history by saints, mystics, and various types of ecstatics.
between UFO abduction and NDEs have been explored by a
number of writers and researchers, the most famous and credentialed of
which is undoubtedly Dr. Ken Ring. Dr. Ring did an extensive series of
clinical studies on the NDE and published his results in Life
at Death and Heading Toward
Omega. Then he did a
follow-up project in which he studied UFO experiencers (primarily
"abductees"), and specifically compared this phenomenon to that
of near-death. His full report can be found in The Omega
Project; he found strong similarities between the two types of
experience, and hypothesized that they may actually be two variants of a
more basic underlying phenomenon.
Ring also quotes
other commentators, who make the following remarks:
to polls, we live in an age where now most people believe that UFOs are
real and that 'people like us live on other planets.' In that
context, since angels and demons are out of style, they now dress in the
costume of our own epoch's archetypal figure - the extraterrestrial
alien - whom we can see precisely because we can now CONCEIVE of
him; he conforms to and expresses our current ideas of possibility.
may represent a contemporary form of shamanic journey - one that fits
and is phrased in terms of a highly technological society which has
already turned its imaginative attention to star flight ... Perhaps
the (ancient) otherworld journey motif is 'camouflaged' in the modern lore
of space travel which, like the fantastic voyage legends of the past,
exemplifies what might be called the lure of the edge.
ecological and millennial themes have been part of the canon of the UFO
world and its literature for a long time, and many persons have already
commented on their quasi-religious character. Indeed, in an age
where secular thinking has come to be the standard but from which the
religious impulse has never disappeared, it is psychologically very
understandable why traditional religious images of salvation have come to
be projected onto the screen of a universe where, for some, it is easier
to believe in ETs than in God.
Betty Luca does
believe in God very strongly, being a devout Christian; yet a
striking difference between her experience and that of near-death
experiencers is that she was escorted to it not by dead
relatives nor Christian spiritual figures, but by small gray bug-eyed
space aliens. Yet, at the end of this first event, which occurred when she
was only 13 years old, there appeared figures of a different type: a
number of entities who were human-looking except for their size, being
about seven feet tall; they were dressed in long white robes, had
pale-colored skin, and hair that was blond to white. In a word, they
looked exactly like the Christian image of angels, except that they had no
wings. Betty called these beings "the Elders," after the
Christian term used especially in the Book of
Revelation, denoting the
angelic beings surrounding the throne of God. (Note: Experiencers have
also reported being brought before a
of Elders to have a life review).
After some three
decades of further experiences, reported in a total of four books by
researcher Raymond Fowler, there came a point when the Elders seemed to
completely take over Betty's encounters.
All the earlier events,
including her first experience of the One, took place in mysterious
locations which seemed to be underground, or else on or near the surface
of the Earth. But now, as reported in the last of Fowler's books, The Watchers
II: Exploring UFOs and the Near Death Experience,
the small Grays came again for Betty in a
saucer, and for the first time took her into outer space, where the small
craft docked with a huge cylindrical mother-ship. This was the domain of
the Elders, who apparently commanded the Grays in a symbiotic
relationship. This journey climaxed for Betty in another ecstatic
experience of the One, though this time the events leading up to it were
Betty asked why
she was here with the Elders, and they said:
| "Don't you remember your
She didn't know what they were talking about, and in
response they used a machine to show her a scene from earlier in her life.
It was at a church service, and what happened was this:
Betty stood up and
gave testimony and pledged to use her talents for the glory of God. This
was probably not unusual for this type of service. But then the minister
suddenly began speaking in tongues. His wife jumped up, ran down the
aisle to Betty, put her hands on Betty's head, and began speaking in
tongues herself. Then the minister interpreted his wife's tongues; it
was a message for Betty:
| "You have given all that you have ... thou
shalt be blessed above women ... "
evidently the scene as Betty remembered it from when she was younger. But
now in the strange replay on the mother-ship, she noticed some differences.
Some of the people had a light around them - these
included Betty, the minister, and his wife. And two Elders were present in
the room, unseen by the congregation. One of the Elders stood behind the
minister and put his hand on the man's shoulder - and this is when he
began speaking in tongues. Then the Elder whispered in the ear of the
minister's wife, and this is when she jumped up and administered "the blessing"
to Betty. Evidently the whole scenario had been orchestrated by the
shown this scene from the past, Betty witnessed live what
clearly seems to have been an act of ritual magic performed by the Elders. Three
of them stepped into a circle drawn on the floor, subdivided by straight
lines into six equal parts.
their hands together, and then, as they concentrated, beams of light came
out of their foreheads, and formed a triangle. At length, in the center of
this triangle, there appeared a ring of light, floating in the air.
Elders stepped into the circle, and they all began chanting "Oh."
Three more beams of light appeared, forming a perfect hexagram. A larger
circle of light formed around the heads of the Elders. Then this
light-ring moved upwards, shrank to the same size as the ring in the
center, and floated down and interconnected with it, forming a revolving
spherical object which finally condensed into a beach ball-sized orb of
lavender-purple light. This was then taken and placed in a four-pronged
stand which had obviously been designed specifically to hold such spheres.
The term "Elders" is Betty's name for these beings. When on an
earlier occasion she had asked them who they were, they had answered that
they are "the ambassadors of Oh, masters of rings, cycles, and orbs." Now, after witnessing the creation of this magical orb,
Betty asked an Elder:
| "Who is Oh?"
| He replied that Oh is "the
internal, external, eternal presence."
The next thing
that happened, to Betty's extreme startlement, was that the Elders induced
an out-of-body experience in her. This is similar to what happened in her
experience at age 13, before she entered the Great Door and saw the One. Now, on the mother-ship, as soon as she emerged in her subtle body, one of
the Elders handed her the orb of purple light, and another led her through
a portal made of rippling waves of energy.
On the other
side of the portal, Betty and the Elder seemed to be on Earth, in a woods
at night. Some hobos were sleeping on the ground. One of them awakened and
approached the two visitors; he glowed with light. The Elder
wore little rings of light on his fingers. He allowed the hobo to take
some of them, and they turned into a single tiny ball of light, which the
man kept. Meanwhile, the larger orb in Betty's hands changed color
momentarily, evidently in resonance with the transaction. Every once
in awhile, Betty's attention was drawn into the ball:
| "Oh," she
said, "it's just so beautiful! Something in it keeps on moving ...
Now the Elder
touched Betty's shoulder. There was a little explosion of white
light, and then they were in a different place: a hospital room, where a
very old man lay in a bed, with a nurse keeping vigil beside him. And
there was more: two small entities which seemed to be made of
darkness where tugging at the man, as if trying to pull his soul out of
his body - this was Betty's impression. But there was also present a
light-being; this was a type of entity Betty had encountered before in her
experiences - it had no visible human features, but appeared as
a bodily form made of white light. This being was also tugging at the
dying man; it was clearly a battle for his soul between these opposing
entities. The Elder resolved the conflict: he threw two tiny balls of
light at the black entities, and they flew away.
The Elder and
Betty next transported to a woods again, where a small saucer and two of
the Grays awaited them. They went on board, and evidently flew up
into the sky. Betty asked where they were going now, and the Elder
replied that they were going to see the One.
Betty had to
give the purple orb to one of the Grays; she was very reluctant and
sorrowful to give it up. The craft came to a stop, and they emerged into a
place filled with bright light. Above them was the Great Door, which was
the source of the light. The Elder touched one of the Grays on the
shoulder and spoke to him, and he came along with the Elder and Betty as
they walked toward the Light. Their walk turned into a run, as they moved
swiftly into the pure radiance. Betty was overwhelmed with the ecstasy of
the One, which she re-experienced on the hypnotist's couch, and the
several people in attendance were all profoundly moved by the visible
effects of her transformation.
Elder, and the Gray all turned into light-beings as they went into the
One. Each was a different hue: the Elder's light-body was pure
white, the Gray alien's was light blue, and Betty's was golden.
"Oh, there is such love ... Oh, there is such peace ... I'm
just engulfed in light and blending into that light. Oh! ... Oh,
this is everything, everything, everything ... I cannot explain
the wonder and beauty and love and peace."
And then came a
heartbroken cry as Betty realized that she would have to leave this
beatific state of Oneness:
"Oh, I'm going to have to go back. I have to go back for others so that they too will see, will understand
and know ..."
And Betty, the Elder, and the Gray emerged back
out of the Light, turning back into their normal forms in the process.
The Elder gave
three of the tiny balls of light to Betty; then she was escorted into the
saucer and taken home by the Grays. She found her physical body
sitting up on the side of her bed next to her sleeping husband, and
re-entered it. The experience had ended.

Edgar Cayce and
Edgar Cayce had more
documented out-of-body sojourns than perhaps any other person who ever
lived. His NDEs were induced through self-hypnosis
which put Cayce in a unique type of trance which allowed him to leave his
body and travel through the tunnel and into heaven. The range of hidden
knowledge he acquired through these journeys are truly remarkable and
unequaled. During Cayce's lifetime, such terms as UFOs, aliens,
flying saucers, or extraterrestrials, did not exist. Cayce
died in 1945 before the UFO craze and it wasn't until after 1947 that these
terms came into common usage in the public. But the Cayce material does
contain a few interesting tidbits that relate to extraterrestrial life and
extraterrestrial visits to Earth.
In a 1939 reading, Edgar Cayce related to a man
that one of his past incarnations was in Atlantis who fled the destruction
to the Yucatan, Pyrenees, and Egypt. Cayce continued:
"For the manners of transportation, the
manners of communications through the airships of that period
were such as Ezekiel described of a much later date."
Book of Ezekiel
(circa 600 B.C.) describes what many UFO writers have interpreted as a
flying saucer: "And I looked, and behold, a whirlwind came out of the north,
a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it,
and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the
fire ... and their rings were full of eyes round about them four. And when
the living creatures were lifted up from the Earth, the wheels were lifted
The most definitive Cayce reading on ancient visits to Earth by
extraterrestrial beings was given in 1938:
"Before this we find the entity was in the land now known as the
Mexican and Yucatan land ... It was just before that period when
those as from the east had come, and there were the beginnings
of the unfoldments of the understanding that there were other
portions of the same land, or those that were visiting from
other worlds or planets." [1616-1]
The reading goes on to
describe how human sacrifices had developed, and it was causing torment. The
time frame and location of these apparent visits by people "from other
worlds or planets" is fairly narrow. It was in the Mayan (Yucatan) region,
and it was after Christ's appearance in Israel. The time frame becomes clear
in a later portion of the reading:
"Before that we find the entity was in the Earth during the days
when the Master walked in the Earth, and in and about those
portions where there were the journeyings of the Master into
strange lands - or out of the Palestine or Galilean land."
One other 1938 Cayce reading
appears to strongly suggest ancient extraterrestrial visitations, but this
time it took place in the Atlantean land, around 10,000 B.C. Incredibly, the
reading could mean that the warning given to Atlantean priests about the
impending destruction of Atlantis could have come from extraterrestrial
sources. Furthermore, the need to have the Atlantean records preserved in
three locations also appears to have come from the same source:
"Before that we find the entity was in the Atlantean land. There
we find the entity was very close to those in authority; being
that one who was the keeper of the portals as well as the
messages that were received from the visitation of those from
the outer spheres, in the latter part of the entity's experience
there. For it was the entity that received the message as to the
needs of dividing the children of the Law of One for the
preservation of the truths of same in other lands. Hence we find
the entity was among those who were as the directors of those
expeditions, or the leaving for the many varied lands just
before the breaking up of the Atlantean land. Hence the entity
outlined in the most part, it might be said, the expedition
guided by Ax-Tell and the ones to the Pyrenees and to the
Yucatan and to the land of Og." [1681-1]
Cayce also mentioned in many
readings for individuals that they had prior sojourns on other planets as
part of a necessary progression of experience. These sojourns on other
planets, however, are not really in a physical form as we understand it.
They are spiritual experiences in which Cayce describes the manifestation of
the soul on a particular planet as adapted to the environment and conditions
of that planet. These soul manifestations are sometimes described as
somewhat physical as well as occasionally in spirit or consciousness alone.
For example, in a 1934 reading Cayce stated:
"Not that Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Uranus or any of the planets
about this Earth's sun have beings or bodies such as are known
in the Earth's sojourns; but those that are peculiar to their
own realm - their own element or position from the solar light,
or the light and heat." [541-1]
Another 1934 reading relates
a similar message:
"We find Jupiter, then, as the greater ruling force; or the
entity's sojourn in that environ. Not as a physical body as
known in the Earth, but as a body adaptable to the environs of
Jupiter; for there's life there (not as known in Earth), as
there is in Saturn, Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Uranus, Neptune,
Mars; all have their form - as about the Earth, the inhabitants
of the air, fire, water - in and out of the Earth. The elements
about same are inhabited, if you choose, by those of their own
peculiar environment." [630-2]
Several Cayce readings
describe dwellers on the moon, but these also appear to be descriptions of
individuals' sojourns. In a 1933 reading Cayce related:
"As it has been often presented by one school of thought, the
dwellers upon the Moon (the satellite of the Earth) preceded the
abilities for matter (expressed in a form that is known as
matter in the Earth). And this entity was among those that so
dwelt, and is influenced by two sojourns there." [264-31]
Carefully reviewing this
reading, it appears that Cayce's statement that the dwellers on the moon
"preceded the abilities for matter" means that the form the souls took on
the moon was nonphysical and was a preparation for a later physical
incarnation on Earth. A 1936 reading explained this further:
"It is not that a soul AS a body is in an environment that it
lives upon a planet as one does in the Earth, but that the
consciousness which is befitting to the environ of the planet is
in that environ, see?" [826-8]
The question of whether or
not human-like life exists on the planets of our solar system was directly
answered in this Cayce reading:
"Upon what planets other than the
Earth does human life exist?"
"None as human life in the Earth." [826-8]

"[The U.S. Government] hasn't maintained
[secrecy regarding UFOs] It's been leaking out all over the place.
But the way it's been handled is by denial, by denying the truth of
the documents that have leaked. By attempting to show them as
fraudulent, as bogus of some sort. There has been a very large
disinformation and misinformation effort around this whole area. And
one must wonder, how better to hide something out in the open than
just to say, 'It isn't there. You're deceiving yourself if you think
this is true.' And yet, there it is right in front of you. So it's a
disinformation effort that's concerning here, not the fact that they
have kept the secret. They haven't kept it. It's been getting out
into the public for fifty years or more." - Dr. Edgar
Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, from a taped interview
