Sightings Of 'UFO' And Strange Animals Frequently Point To Spiritual Deception
It's always good to clean the slate during this time of the year (call it summer cleaning) and so an item or two here. Today, let's focus on the esoteric. Why do we often carry stories on strange topics like "bigfoot" and UFOs?
These are two subjects the very mention of which brings up the word "fringe," and often rightly so. The word is "bizarre." But in all that strangeness, is there a spiritual element?
We are not alone in our reportage. Such topics are increasingly discussed in major media outlets like ABC-TV, national cable networks, and newspapers. The English government has taken reports of "unidentified flying objects" seriously enough to issue a major report (basically, dismissing them), while in the U.S., various in-depth studies have tended to take a position of neutrality. In Mexico, the military has allowed pilots to speak of objects they have seen and cannot fathom, in effect declaring it a mystery.
The reason we occasionally link to articles about UFOs is that we believe at least some of them -- the ones that are not satellites, high-flying planes, or swamp gas -- may indeed have a spiritual component. We also believe that this spiritual nature is not a good one and is part of what we call a "great deception."
In the past, we have explained that, while it is certainly plausible for life to exist elsewhere (the Vatican says this too), and while it is certainly possible that beings from another planet are visiting us, many luminosities in the sky seem more spiritual than extraterrestrial.
Why do we say "spiritual"? They (and their "inhabitants") are said: to materialize and dematerialize, like a nonphysical phenomenon; to frequent occult sites (such as covens); to bequeath psychic gifts on unfortunate witnesses; to haunt families, sometimes for generations, mostly in a way that is frightening; and in certain cases even to leave the odor of sulfur, which is associated with the demonic.
That many government agencies have investigated UFOs without finding conclusive physical evidence speaks volumes. Throughout history, luminosities in the sky have often carried spiritual connotations. Indians often recorded "spirit lights," and they are especially prevalent at old burial grounds.
Meanwhile, the "aliens" often resemble ancient representations of voodoo spirits.
It's why we call many such reports a "deception" and one can feel the "grit." There is simply not a good energy with this and for this reason, we recommend discarding books in this realm (especially about alien "abduction," which closely mimics possession) and to switch the station when a show on such comes on. We have been looking into this topic since the 1960s and know how clever is the deception.
What about Roswell? What about those who claim there is physical evidence?
Again, heed the caution light. The devil loves to toy with us and in times past, it was wood nymphs, trolls, and fairies.
Now, as we have progressed technologically, it's spacemen.
The same is true in the realm of "crypto-zoology."
That's the study of creatures like "bigfoot," lake monsters, and assorted other mythic animals.
Over the centuries, thousands have claimed to see a strange, large, ape-like animals from the Himalayas to the West Coast and even Florida. Interestingly, they are often linked to "UFO" sightings (as near Seattle).
Since they seem to disappear into thin air in certain instances, or leave behind a sulfur odor, let us be wary that this too, or most of it -- at the very least -- is a deception.
Indeed, reports of a hairy giant in California go back more than two hundred years. Spanish priests in the 1700s recorded that one such area -- a stretch of river along the Santa Ana (near Riverside) -- was known as the "Camp of the Devil." It was claimed that missionaries even saw one (and there were reports of a smell like "brimstone").
Is there a chance these are real undiscovered mammals?
In some cases, there is that chance. Sightings have been made by credible observers (including sheriff deputies) and paleoanthropologists have studied skull fragments from a huge prehistoric gorilla known as "gigantopithecus."
This ape, some theorize, may still be alive in tiny pockets.
Once more, it could be that a small pocket of such apes exist.
But like UFOs, "bigfoot" often seems to all but vanish into thin air, and is sometimes prevalent in areas with an occult attachment.
In New Jersey are sightings of a creature known in the Pine Barrens. Hundreds testify to its existence -- once more, including cops. It is known as the "Jersey Devil" and is so frequently reported that a professional hockey team was even named after it!
In West Virginia it's the "mothman." Weird events connected to this myth began on November 12, 1966, near Clendenin, West Virginia when five men were in the local cemetery that day, preparing a grave for a burial, and something that looked like a ?brown human being? lifted off from some nearby trees and flew over their heads.
Or so they claim.
The men were perplexed. It did not appear to be a bird, but more like a male human with wings. A few days later, more sightings would take place, notes one report -- electrifying the entire region.
What was needed, in this case, perhaps, was not a crypto-zoologist but an exorcist.
Most notorious are the lake "monsters." There is Loch Ness ("Nessie"), and plesiosaur-like water-animal reports from Lake Champlain to -- well, to Devil's Lake in the Dakotas.
They are described in a way that elicits the word "serpent."
Whether chupacrabras or werewolves or centaurs, whether sea monsters or yetis or gargoyles, strange and often demonic-looking creatures have been a part of the human psyche.
Few know that in A.D. 565 St. Columba (top, left) was said to have stopped by Loch Ness and performed an exorcism to get rid of that lake creature.
Why would a saint perform an exorcism on a physical specimen?
Argentina. British Columbia. Quebec.
With so many, why no definitive physical evidence?
In Tibet, the legends even state that bigfoot came from the sky with supernatural powers.
Meanwhile, those involved in "crypto-zoology" are often connected with occult organizations.
Again, one has to ask why that is.
In the annals of Christian mysticism are accounts of half-human, half-animal entities like what we see as classic idols in ancient Egypt or Babylon. Archeologists have discovered rock paintings depicting strange creatures and called them teriantrops: hybrids of humans and animals.
St. George. Dragons. Woe to China! The list goes on. Along Loch Ness are homes frequented by occultists, who are drawn to the area, including the former home of the most notorious English satanist.
Our advice: pull out a rosary (or Holy Water) before you pull out a camera.
"Just thought I'd mail you a piece of interesting info as I seem not to be able to let it go," noted one of our readers. "I live in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, and was waiting for my daughter who was having a babysitting interview in a house in a fairly affluent neighborhood, when I saw it. Since I was getting a little bored in the car I was staring up and down the street at the houses, etc. Then I saw this ginger-colored -- what I thought was a cat, slowly walk in a cat like determined fashion toward me.
"And then I saw it wasn't a cat at all-much too tall and its legs were long. It was downright odd. Then I thought a fox --- but it's tail was long and thin and went straight down it's backside. And I've seen red foxes and there's no mistaking their bushy tail and bright red coat. It had a pointed snout though. Too small for a coyote. And desperate and scrawny.
"Anyway it walked by and I watched it go down beside a house and disappear. A truck had slowed down to watch this weird animal too. I have no idea what it was and neither does anyone else."
Most recently, the hotspot has been Malaysia. There the Johor Wildlife Protection Society says it has "scientific evidence" to prove the existence of a yeti whose sightings in the Johor jungles have excited the world's media: not just one bigfoot but a whole colony of the giant, hairy creatures which the society named "Orang Lenggor" (for "Lenggor People").
Our question: why does bigfoot often have a proclivity for camps inhabited by shamans (Himalayan magic medicine men)?
A researcher there was startled to find two heaps of uprooted plants, a hundred yards apart, in a secondary forest near Kampung Lukut China in Kota Tinggi. "Vincent Chow, on a personal expedition to find out if Bigfoot exists, said he came across the puzzling trail as he went some 200 meters into the secondary forest," said one report. "And Orang Asli living along the Johor-Pahang border claim they too have seen 'Bigfoot' in the Endau-Rompin National Park while collecting forest produce in the area."
Or so they say.
Our times are as mysterious as they are difficult and exciting!
Perhaps more to the point is the old saying of the Hopi elders that the increasing appearances of bigfoot are not only a message or warning to the individuals or communities to whom he appears, but to humankind at large. As one researcher put it, they see bigfoot as "a messenger who appears in evil times as a warning from the Creator that man's disrespect for His sacred instructions has upset the harmony and balance of existence." To the Hopi, the "big hairy man" was just one form that the messenger can take.
By "messenger," perhaps they meant "sign."
