Bret Oldham describes his strange and terrifying life-long experiences and memories associated with aliens and UFO occurrences and encounters. How these events affected him and how he came to terms with them through the years is a fascinating narrative.
From numerous memories of face-to-face encounters with “the greys,” Bret shares a wide variety of episodes that have included a fetus removal from a former girl friend (which she consciously remembers as well), years later onboard memories where he was introduced to a hybrid child (which it was explained to him was his), to onboard physical exams and tests, and apparent psychological experiments where the aliens would play bizarre and disturbing mind games with him, seemingly to learn more about his psychological make-up.
I met Bret and his wife Gina over three years ago, at the time to engage in paranormal investigative work. Bret’s psychic abilities seem significantly elevated above that of the average person, which right along with his early childhood alien encounters he became aware of psychic abilities too. We have had many conversations since about how this UFO/psychic connection crops up in numerous “alien abduction” cases and I am pleased to see that he delves into this aspect as well in this book, in addition to how we met and have explored together the “electronic voice phenomenon,” sharing how he introduced myself and our mutual friend Sandy Nichols, also an “abductee,” to the “spirit box,” which has resulted in hundreds of perplexing audio files between us.
Fascinating, thought-provoking, and a very, ver-ry highly recommended reading experience. This book is absolutely a must read!

The Winter Solstice of 2012 has now come and gone, and over four months later we’re still here and all seems well. That, of course, is a ver-ry good thing. Does this mean the Mayan’s were incompetent in their calculations and predictions? Actually they were extremely competent astronomically and mathematically. They weren’t dim-witted primitives. Furthermore, it was modern man who over-reacted and misinterpreted the Mayan material and assumed that the end of the Mayan calendar spelled the end of the world.
Rather the author explains that this the end of the world as we have known it, and foresees a future looming before us that has great potential for positive growth and evolution. She delves into the ancient shamanic world, how that world has much potential for improving our lives and furthering our future goals. She provides guidelines and instructions on how we can learn to engage in the shamanic journeying process ourselves, helping to heal and gain insight and understanding for ourselves and others.
The author also sprinkles numerous helpful and insightful stories and lessons from her own life. She enlightens and tickles your funny bone all at the same time. A stimulating and thought-provoking book.
