Jane - My intention for starting this thread, and for sharing my experience of clients who claimed to be abducted/abused by aliens, was to increase understanding and release fear for everyone that might be reading. There are various layers of reality that we can tap into, and everyone has their own perception - that's a given. I've already stated that abduction is possible just not my experience, or my experience with clients.
When others aren't sharing our same perception, or our perception is considered "wrong" for being so different than others, of course we feel invalidated, rejected. A mystic is definitely having a different perspective than most people, or rather multiple perspectives, which some people would consider as delusional. The difference is that they can help others gain the same perspective, they're typically functioning in a grounded practical way, and are so internally-validating that it doesn't matter if no one agrees with them.
And sometimes we're just delusion or conflicted - nothing wrong with that. I know a woman who thought she was Jesus and went on a shopping spree, staying at hotels and not paying, speaking incoherently with disjointed thoughts, making grandiose claims, etc. Once she was able to get medicine for schizophrenia, which was hereditary in her case, her perspective shifted.
My experience from clients is that their own story/perspective/understanding shifted based on their own experience, not solely based on what I was saying. I didn't make them change or invalidate them - which is what it sounds like you felt with your experience. I was very present with them to see what was needing to be acknowledged in the moment.
Everyone on this forum has probably had some kind of experience of not being acknowledged, understood, valued, respected. And if you have had an experience with UFO's, then I could imagine that a public announcement would seem more like a vindication of your perception, something to celebrate. Based on what everyone has been discussing on this thread, there are likely to be all kinds of reactions from people all over the world. So like my intention for this thread, perhaps the reason for an announcement would be to help lessen the fear, create a sense of trust and sharing, and create a greater collective transformation through wisdom/understanding that will be shared.
