A UFO is sighted somewhere in the world every six minutes.
But there could be even more seen, with many sightings and experiences going unreported, according to close encounter therapist Mary Rodwell. She never strongly believed in extraterrestrial life herself, but when a family experiencing paranormal activity came to her some 20 years ago, they changed her convictions.
Ms Rodwell has now counselled more than 3000 people who claim to have been abducted and said the stories she has been told have many commonalities. “People experience the same anomalies, they wake in the morning after having a strange night and feel like they were taken somewhere else,” she said. “Others have strange marks on their body or a bloody nose, with no idea of how they got them.”
Ms Rodwell, Australian Close Encounter Resource Network director, said these experiences had nothing to do with believers. “It often happens to people who have no interest in UFOs or aliens and my clients are anybody from lawyers, doctors, nurses to pilots, police, housewives and children,” she said.
One of Ms Rodwell’s practises is hypnosis, for people to discover “missing time”.
Missing time is when you move from one point to another, with no recollection of how you got there. “Clients often find out they have interacted with extraterrestrial life,” she said. “Children learn things on the craft and they talk about complex things they shouldn’t know about like black holes.”
Ms Rodwell said extraterrestrial life could be confused for ghosts and other paranormal beings.
She believes they aren’t necessarily something to fear and said some were healers. Ms Rodwell said she treated a Victorian woman in her 60s with chronic back pain.
She was told she would end up wheelchair-bound and only had morphine for relief. “After she had a levitating experience, her condition was gone, she is no longer on medication,” Ms Rodwell said.
“I did hypnosis and we discovered she went onto a craft and was healed. “Now she’s almost 70 and has more energy than her children. “Part of her mission has been to prove to her family and partner that this is real, they find it difficult to believe her.”
Ms Rodwell said many were closed-minded when it came to the possibility of other intelligence and some refused to report their experiences at the risk of sounding “crazy”.
“After people have experiences their whole life is transformed,” she said. “They are less materialistic and get involved with healing and caring for the planet.”
After 20 years of studying extraterrestrial life, Ms Rodwell said she had come to understand how common experiences are. “People need to come out of the space closet,” she said.
