One evening I was in my kitchen looking out the window into the backyard. Just above my neighbor’s house, I saw a spacecraft. It was the “classic” flying saucer shape; it had a band of bright yellow lights spanning its circumference and the body of the ship was a pale green alternating with a solid red.
And my first instinct was to run and grab my cell phone to take a picture or video of the UFO!
I quickly found my phone, but as I returned to the window it faded away and disappeared. I guessed the beings in the UFO didn’t want the publicity… I definitely don’t think this was an appropriate first reaction on my behalf and I felt a bit remorseful.
Perhaps sensing my remorse, the ship returned a few seconds later. And at this point, I ran to the back door so I could go outside and greet them! Without my phone…
A Brief Encounter
While the thought that this was in fact taking place in the astral plane never directly crossed my mind, I knew very well that I was in the astral plane – especially since I no longer lived in the house where the experience was taking place and the fact that many people seem to have encounters with extraterrestrials in the astral plane.
I made a symbolic gesture to the ship, trying to convey that I welcomed them in peace. The ship landed in the backyard. And a platform descended.
Although I hadn’t even met them yet, given that I knew the experience was taking place in the astral plane, where one is quite likely to encounter negative entities, I immediately began to use a protective recitation that Belsebuub describes in his Astral Codex book to dispel evil presences as a precaution, just to make sure I wouldn’t have an encounter with any negative entities posing as extraterrestrials.
Two beings came out of the ship, but I was surprised to see them dressed in armor! One of them even carried a sword in his/her hands (I couldn’t see their faces because of the helmets). I was very calm and had no fear. They walked slowly towards me.
I repeated my symbolic gesture just to break the ice – I didn’t really know what to say or do. One of them paused briefly and gave a gentle nod of the head, seemingly as a polite greeting or acknowledgment.
The experience did not last much longer as I started to lose my awareness of the present moment. I was speculating in my mind why one of them had a sword, and as my mind was getting caught up in thinking, my vision got blurrier and blurrier and I woke up.
I found this to be an uplifting experience overall, but for me there was some uncertainty about what took place in the latter part of it. I can’t be certain that through the excitement of the event, that I applied the recitations as effectively as possible. In my mind there’s still a lingering concern the beings I met were not actually extraterrestrials, but negative beings in the astral trying to distract me from having a clear experience. A clear lesson I can take from this is taking greater care with the recitations in the future, to have no doubts.
