The abduction stories form a continuum with old legends and beliefs …They do contain a message …given to us by the hidden parts of our being.
— John Rimmer – (The Evidence for Alien Abductions – 1984)
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore – While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
— Edgar Allan Poe – (The Raven)
“We stepped into the fringe of reality,” Karla Turner replied to a questioner — after relating her incredible story to an immense group at the 1992 Ozark UFO Conference. “Our book comes from my journal that I kept (about these events).”
Karla [now deceased; a victim of the insidious cancer many “abductees” mysteriously succumb to -B:.B:.], who holds a Ph.D. in English, hypnotized her husband Casey in the mid-1980s to attempt to find the source of Casey’s anxiety and tension. Casey, a computer software consultant, had been seeing a therapist at the time and was suffering with a variety of nervous problems. What they found in the hypnosis was not what they expected.
Casey had numerous memories of alien contact — sexual contact. One of his earliest memories was a white-haired, old woman appearing in his bedroom when he was 13 years old. She had a deeply wrinkled face and deep, piercing eyes. Unable to resist, he had sexual intercourse with her. Casey also recalled other times that creatures entered his bedroom and forced him to have sex. One such experience left him with claw marks on his back, while another incident in 1987 resulted in a painful scar on the back of his leg.
Interaction with the abductors wasn’t limited to Casey. Karla told of walking into her home at night when a being grabbed hold of her arm. The creature told her it was her mother, but Karla stated that it looked like a giant grasshopper. Another time, Karla was coming home through her back yard when she felt like she “had hit an electric fence. I wasn’t feeling right… wasn’t moving right …there was a glow everywhere …I stopped… and saw four gray beings standing side by side in my backyard.”
“I assumed I was having a hallucination (but) I’m awake — why? I felt I could see through them and they talked to me telepathically.”
“Greetings, we are your ancestors,” they said. “We are a part of you, but we are real.”
“I couldn’t move as I normally do,” Karla continued. “Then two females behind me came up close — they started buzzing.”
“They are giving you some instructions,” they told me.
