Learning How to Become Lucid During Abduction Experiences – getting beyond the screen memories and seeing the alien captors for what they are!

Authors note: A significant word of CAUTION – do NOT attempt lucidity if you are not willing to face the truth about what is happening to you and the possibility that your captors are not positive beings. It is better to wait until you are ready to face the facts. In addition, make sure you have a professional support system afterwards such as a therapist in the field of alien abduction to help you through potential traumatic experiences.


Recently several people have asked me how I become lucid during an alien abduction experience. I am usually lucid and wake up before the abduction I have consciously programmed myself to wake up at the slightest movement. Often I’m knocked out after they have appeared (they will use their version of sedation for us who don’t cooperate), – I fight for consciousness as hard as possible and I am still able to get bits a pieces of the abduction after this form of sedation. I have used some of the techniques below to aid in getting lucid. Fighting for consciousness is a major key to getting past screen memories [1]and seeing the alien abductors for what they are and most importantly, what they are doing to you and humanity. Like many abductees, many of my early memories are deeply hidden away, archived in my psyche – but at times, many have emerged because I try to consciously force them up once a psychological trigger [2]is activated. Nothing is one-hundred percent and these techniques may not work for you. All I am saying is give it a shot, because it might help you.


Start by keeping an abduction journal - there are key reasons for this. A journal will help you strategically organize your brains wonderful ability to remember things that it tends to shelf away.


Setting up your Journal:

  1. Buy a couple of regular note books ( not legal pads etc..) <I have three>
  2. Keep one at your bedside, in your living room or den (the place you relax in your home) and keep one in either a glove box or somewhere in the car that it would be safe. Like a back seat or side door pocket, keep a pen or pencil with it. I use a spiral type of note book and keep my pen or pencil in the spiral part
  3.  In each journal start by taking the top line on each page and adding  a place for date  and time,  skip a few lines and add the word experience: <write as much as possible that you remember even if it’s just one single word.
  4. Then leave space and describe how you immediately feel. These are called body sensations, (do you feel edgy, anxious, dizzy, buzzed, sick, hurting, paranoid, etc)? write those things  down!
  5. Then leave a space to write about any body markings you may have. Completely check your body use mirrors for hard to see places– write down if you have bruises, triangles marks, punctures marks, injection points, scratches,  indentations skin, raised markings, knots on skin, nosebleeds, or bleeding from other orifices like ears, or private parts.
  6. Leave space for writing afterthoughts – those odd feelings – other things that come to your mind. Sometimes memories come much later after the experience.
  7. Lastly, did you tell anyone and who was the person you told? Make sure to write the date when you told someone down. If it is a spouse, as them if they remember anything!

I have on my website a page you can print out to get an idea on keeping your journal. You can access it here: http://maar.us/journal_example.html



The purpose of the Journal:

a.) It will help you to remember key elements of the event even if it just one odd memory, you can begin to focus on that one memory and other memories will usually follow. This will take time for some and may came quickly for others but it will eventually provoke a memory, however slight it may be. For some don't be surprised if it triggers many memories, like a flood gate if this happens feel free to email me at colleen@maar.us


b.) Nevertheless, try not to panic, write those things down nothing is insignificant when it comes to a memory whether it's real or a screen – and granted some memories may be screen memories…those that cover up what’s really going on. The more you remember - the more chances you have at eventually becoming lucid. You can also program your own mind to remember events if they occur or BEFORE they occur.  This is why it is so important to keep a journal. Also, pay attention to odd thoughts after the event – feeling sad, emotional, etc.,  note what is triggering the thoughts. These odd thoughts may come days later. This is identified as a recall memory [3] sometimes you might have recall dreams too. Real experiences - that bubble up from those shelves the psyche has place them.


c.) Once you begin remember things - this is when you will start becoming lucid. Remember minor memories and small moments of lucidity are as important as being able to see whole segments. Try to do things contradictory to what the aliens expect. They expect us to be quiet and lay still. According to My research and reports for from abductees, who are becoming lucid the last thing to go before one passes out are the eyes, and mouth. My friend (and mentor I might add) Dr. Karla (Kandy) Turner taught me to lick out at them or bug my eyes at them. They seriously freak out at this. try raising your eye brows, try to wiggle something, fingers toes make a screwy face Try ANYTHING, this does work eventually.


d.) Once you achieve lucidity even if just for a few minutes - you can PRETEND to be out of it. When they are holding you, prior to their experimentations take your eyes and look at your surroundings, do not move your head, instead use your eyes. Tell your mind while lucid you will remember what has happened. Note if anyone else (if you are with others) is there that you know or seem familiar to you.


The Fight for Reality

Again you must fight (it is a fight) for lucidity and consciousness. Think of it this way - You have been programmed by alien captors since your abductions started (many of us during childhood around the age of three or four years old).  You been programmed to SLEEP, to close your eyes, to roll over, to think of your captors as though the experience is a dream, (even masquerading as cartoon characters, rock stars, or humans whom look strange), to lay still and not move or to obey their commands. Your spouses or significant others hare programmed as well NOT to remember or awaken and in some cases believe it's actually happening.

You can learn to do a little programming for yourself:

 At this stage – you might seriously begin to get past the screen memories and see who your captors really are. You may become upset –simply because your abductions are not what you expected them to be.  That is when a good support system is so important! You can begin to see what they are doing to you and others but it takes time to undo the programs to reprogram. We do have more control than they would like us to believe. Please try the above method and be patient for results.

Patience is another key - again you must be really ready to do this. If you have fear about it, try having a hypnotic regression first.

Regardless, we must fight for consciousness to find out what is really happening to us. If we don't we will be forever locked in a world of posttraumatic stress disorder and paranoid behaviors as well as becoming deeply depressed. It is worth knowing? In my opinion yes no matter whom is doing the abductions.

 We learn to educate ourselves and others about the reality of abduction - and that is above all, is the most important information we can give to the segment of humanity that experience this type of enigma.
