What's an alien, anyway?

This blog entry is a bit off topic, but this is what's coming through today. . .

I was blog cruising this evening when I ran into The Spirit Moved Me and Look What Happened. A reader posed the question whether or not the blogger had come across an alien, did a healing take place, etc. Normally I'm really not into "aliens." I mean, my take on it is that they're here they're beyond queer, get used to it. But something about the post brought up an old memory I had about my own brush with an alternate live form. So, I thought I would re-post my comment here:

Thanks for this post. I'm happy to have found your blog!

It's funny, the word "alien" has somehow fallen out of my vocabulary-- I think because the lines between alien, non-alien, and entity are completely blurred, in my experience.

But I will say this, I have definitely seen a non-governmental space thing over the skies of Albuquerque, NM where I once lived.

And, I remember, some time ago, in the 90s, I was visiting the observatory on the University of New Mexico campus with my Mom-- there was some heavenly body that was moving fairly close to earth or something, so we went down there to take a closer look.

The observatory was packed-- we were waiting in a queue like it was a concert or something. I looked at a woman in line-- perfectly average, regular looking person. Thought nothing of her. I looked over at her again-- she was. . . well. . . reptilian. That's all I can say-- the human covering was a ruse.

I was transfixed for a minute or so, but it seemed a lot longer. No words were spoken, I wasn't transported, but I do feel that I was visited. The absurdity of an upright reptile waiting in line for anythingwas what really got me. The thought I heard in my head was something like you're all looking up there, but we're already HERE. And just as quickly, the woman was there again, like nothing had happened.

I've never told anyone but my mother about this, because the moment was just too strange.

But something that I have been thinking about a lot lately is, that our collective understanding of "alien" has changed. There was a time when Western media was flooded with alien this and alien that-- aliens were practically a breakfast cereal. Not so much anymore. Now it's all about ghosts, spirits, dreams, hauntings-- this apparent shift is very interesting to me.

Have we all simply integrated the concept of other life forms on other planets? Are extraterrestrials old hat?

Sorry for the long post-- but the question really got me going!


I think we're less wrapped up in "aliens" and more focused on ghosts and the afterlife because the concept is closer to the collective "us." It seems to be more within the realm of possibility for the average person to believe that a human can become a ghost. Extraterrestrials may still be too X Files for most people. Not that I want to be proven wrong, borrowed for an undisclosed amount of time and returned with a chip in the back of my neck. Being wrapped on the spiritual knuckles by Lord Byron during an automatic writing session for not fully pursuing my gifts as a writer is strange enough for me.

Alien tends to mean things like fundamentally differnt from ourselves. Different doesn't have to alienate us, but we may let it. A closer look may reveal we are unconsciously rejecting part of ourselves, our past or our future. Rejection is based on fear which we create to distract us from the truth. What do you fear?

There are several things I fear, I'm sure. I fear getting a tattoo. I fear that I may not arrive at the destiny my soul knows is mine, which I imagine is like trying to climb Everest, and having to turn back before reaching the summit.

You need not get a real tattoo in order to overcome the fear of doing so. You simply need to uncover the belief that generates the fear itself. Identify reasons for the belief, and you'll dissolve the illusion you imagine.

You have no reason to believe you will not arrive at your destiny. Every human being gets to where its soul plans to arrive. The process of "arriving" involves peeling away the layers of your self-created fear. Your subconscious already knows the plan. You also have free will and deviate onto diverse paths in order to learn. Cherish each one. Sense the power of now.

Ohh-- I've not thought of it that way-- overcoming that fear by uncovering it . . . Thank you!
