“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known...The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena...There are a lot of places out there, the molecules of life are everywhere, I use the word billions...it would be astonishing to me if there weren’t extraterrestrial intelligence.” ~ Carl Sagan


In the past couple of weeks, amid the holiday hustle and bustle, there has been an interesting, no-drama flurry of UFO related information, including camera footage, released by NASA, former Pentagon officials, and other high level sources to mainstream media. Articles and interviews have appeared in The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, on the major television news broadcasts and in social media. The bottom line of all this is that highly placed people and government sources are gently letting us know that the evidence for non-terrestrials visiting the Earth is very compelling.


The topic of extra-terrestrials and their influence on life here on Earth is not new. Peoples throughout history have attempted to tell us in the records of their art, written traditions, and even in nuggets of truth surviving in myths that contact with E.T.’s has been going on for untold thousands of years and is real. Ancient advanced civilizations all over the world have openly attributed their knowledge of everything from architecture, engineering and medicine to beings from the stars who came to Earth. The recognition of star beings is also true among indigenous cultures.

Currently, we have the eyewitness reports from astronauts, military personnel, police, scientists, and thousands of civilians who have witnessed UFOs and/or experienced “close encounters.” Recently we also have detailed testimony about secret space programs from credible experts and experiencers turned whistleblowers. There is an impressive selection of brilliantly researched books published on these E.T. and secret space program topics.


What is new is that when NASA and Pentagon government sources share previously secret information with mainstream media, when a recently retired head of a government UFO project speaks publicly about findings, we can assume the timing of this is not random. These disclosures would likely be on purpose and with a purpose. This appears to be part of an on-going soft disclosure...aka a little bit at a time … perhaps slightly accelerated right now...about what’s been going on for the past seventy years or so related to extra-terrestrial research, exploration, technology retrieval and outer space discoveries.


This article is an invitation to be aware of what we are being shown is on the event horizon. This is not about promoting fear. This is intended as an opportunity to begin adjusting ourselves to the far reaching changes to everything we thought we knew and believed, which a confirmed E.T. presence will bring. The ability to expand our capacity for what’s true and to adapt, no matter how mind blowing, can spare individuals, communities and nations from excessive fear and mitigate serious personal and societal mental trauma as some of our long-held and/or foundational beliefs become obsolete.


Inevitably there will be good guys and bad guys, noble agendas and destructive ones, things we will want to know and things we’d rather we didn’t know. The ability to see what is...without emotional reactivity...allows for mental clarity, emotional calm and the ability to discern what’s true to make informed choices. As more and more of what’s been kept secret related to UFOs, space exploration and ET technology is likely revealed, there will an appropriate mix of reactions...from shock, upset and despair to wonder, excitement and optimism, and everything in between.


These revelations also introduce the extraordinary and challenging opportunity to step into becoming galactic citizens capable of leaning into and contributing the best of our unique humanness to the advancements, the complexities and the wonders of expanding what’s possible beyond what we are able to imagine. Always keep in mind that every human being has a heart equipped with the ability to consciously access and share the highest love, creativity and intelligence of the Cosmos. As this story unfolds, keep informed, keep your mind open and curious. And as consistently as possible, lead with an open heart.
