My Response to a Bogus Article Posted About Me on the Internet Recently

Some Facebook friends alerted me to the posting of several articles on the web yesterday with headlines like:

“Lizard men abducted me to the moon for sex”, “Woman claims she was abducted to the moon by lizard men…”, etc. Ad infinitum… ad nausem.

The following is what I posted on Facebook about this:

“This is a bogus story folks. I never made any such claims. If you want to know the real story of what happened with my experiences, please read my book, “Facing the Shadow, Embracing the LIght: A Journey of Spirit Retrieval and Awakening.” Part of the reason I wrote it is to put, in my own words, what I remember and what I’ve researched and data I have collated on my experiences and the experiences of others. And for the record, I really HATE drama. I never made any such claim, ever, nor would I ever lend my name to such a sensationalistic headline even if there was a shred of truth to this. Actually, I thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have posted a similar comment to this on the actual article page.”

My words from previous articles and interviews have been grossly twisted for cheap and grotesque sensationalism. This is one of the reasons I wrote my book, so that my statement would be on the record as precisely as I could write down my memories of what I remember happening. If anyone wants the REAL story, they are going to have to buy my book and read about it themselves. The book, Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light: A Journey of Spirit Retrieval and Awakening, is available on as a paperback or Kindle edition. I hope to have a PDF version available soon, and an audio version will be in the works as soon as my current life transition, a move to a new community, is complete and I have settled in comfortably. I am just coming out of an extremely rough year and a half in my personal life. Having to deal with this kind of article nonsense at any time is an awful thing to have to deal with any time, but especially so now after such a difficult and trying year and a half.

Here is the link to my book on

I am a highly sensitive person and an introvert. I NEVER express myself in such dramatic terms. What happened to me while in the military was horrific, but to my knowledge, was primarily perpetrated by human men, not reptilians. Did I see reptilians as part of my experiences? Yes, a couple of times as recalled in the pages of my book. But not in the manner alluded to by these articles with their ugly and sensationalistic headlines. And mis-quoting me to boot.

I suppose this kind of trash is what one has to deal with when making their story of extraordinary experiences public. I came forward publicly for several reasons with interviews beginning back in 2009. The first reason was to shed light on horrible human rights abuses going on under National Security Act of 1947 secrecy. When I had the thought that by staying silent, I was allowing such abuse to continue for others, I knew I had to write the book. I wrote it for my own healing. I wrote it so one more voice would be saying we don’t need fossil fuels and we don’t need to destroy our environment digging them up and burning them in our vehicles. And many more reasons that should be evident to those who have read my book.

No one should have to live with the kinds of experiences that will haunt me for the rest of my life. But I do. I do it as successfully as I can, with lots of time in the healing beauty of nature, with a morning spiritual practice that includes vipassana meditation and contemplation, and WITH AS LITTLE DRAMA AS POSSIBLE. Because you see, when the experiences are as bad as the ones I live with, they don’t need extra drama or embellishment. At least among average folks who are not drama kings or queens, who have some personal compassion, sensitivity and empathy.

A person who is kind, compassionate or empathic would not do such headlines or articles as the ones appearing on the web around this completely twisted and bogus article or articles. They would know that it just adds to the pain I will live with the rest of my life about what happened. Such articles, if I was being truly hyper-sensitive it would feel like a kind of rape all over again, having such ugly words applied to me in any way.

But at least I’ve moved beyond that — those who twist my story with these kinds of untruths are the ones responsible and accountable for their words.  There are all kinds of trolls who have slammed much of my writing on the internet and in my book, many with clear or veiled agendas of their own. Some day it may come back to haunt them, but I’m not going to worry about that. I’m just going to refute it here and everyone is free to make up their own minds.

Even those who have read my book, with some other agenda most likely, have taken things I’ve said in it and slammed some of it, without seeing or mentioning that I myself say in my book that I don’t ask people to believe in what I say, but to do their own research. Those without some kind of spiritual outlook on life and our universe will likely miss many of the points in the book as well. But I did write the book to be as down to earth and pragmatic as it is spiritual.

But I knew that by publishing my book for my own altruistic reasons, I would probably have to contend with this kind of crap from time to time. So, in addition to the statement my book makes, I’m choosing to simply publish this statement, here on my website, that this is material taken from my experiences and twisted to suit the purposes of the persons who are publishing this and re-publishing it again and again – to shock, to frighten, to sensationalize, and to muddy the water of what really did happen. It is a gross unkindness.

And after what I’ve been through, I consider unkindness to be one of the cardinal sins.

So, again, if anyone wants the real story, from me, please buy my book.

Many Blessings to you readers,


Politics and Collective Human Consciousness – What indoctrinates us into continued slavery and what frees us?

Held in LoveI’ll begin here, by suggesting movies to watch – or rewatch – and consider carefully as we move towards the Presidential and Congressional elections in 2016:

#1: The Handmaid’s Tale – starring Natasha Richardson, Aidan Quinn
#2: V for Vendetta – starring Hugo Weaving, Natalie Portman
#3: The Matrix – starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss

As you watch the first 2 films, are you struck by how some of the characters in the films remind you of real-life people you see on TV today? What are the messages? How much is smoke and mirrors? How much of it directs your attention to trival dramas while real problems in our society and culture go unaddressed? And how much over-the-top extreme drama and behavior do you see both portrayed in the films, and far more disturbingly, in our real-life world? How much hatred of people against people do we see being spun out and generated daily in the news media? Hatred against gays to the point of someone actually introducing legislation to put a gun to their heads and kill them without legal consequences, such as I saw in a recent post from a friend? Hatred – divide and conquer tactics and rhetoric – generated where there should be more understanding and compassion. And usually salvationist religions are at the heart of this generation of hatred and divisiveness.

In the 3rd film, The Matrix, I have been struck in the last year of how individuals in my own life seem to be “triggered” to changes in character and/or attack without sense, logic or compassion, much as how any regular person on the street in the Matrix could be turned into an “agent” in just moments. In studying the archon phenonomenon, as described in the Gnostic Scriptures, I have to wonder at the extent of their influence and control over individuals, activating the worst traits in individuals and pushing them to unnatural extremes of behavior. See the following link for more info on archons. I believe that archons are behind the seeming explosion of narcissistic individuals in our government, military and religious institutions who push anti-life agendas without regard or compassion for people or the environment. “Salvationist” religions are a primary tool of the archons.

I’m no Bible scholar, but there is a passage in the Bible that speaks of “fighting not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers of darkness.” I believe this refers to the archons, and I feel it was included in the Bible with much other material, to inspire fear of things that we have been conditioned to believe we have no power over. As Jim Marrs has said, these invaders did not come with spaceships and particle weapons. They invaded our minds, giving us their anti-life maniacal mentality that exaggerates every human fault and failing to an unnatural extreme. We see it played out around us at every turn in our societies today.

And for the record, I put 1 and 2 together in my book, “Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light” regarding how our collective consciousness is indoctrinated, managed and controlled from birth to spin out a version of reality from the quantum field (see the movie, “What the Bleep Do We Know?” for more on consciousness and the quantum field) that keeps these controllers in control and us subject to them. Keeping us divided and conquered prevents us from discovering who and what we really are, and fulfilling the incredible potential that is our birthright. I felt strongly when I wrote my book that this is the information the controllers, Illuminati, shadow gov’t people MOST FEAR getting into the hands of the people. With it, through our consciousness, we can change the face of this planet and take it back from such dark forces. WE could create the New Earth for ourselves.

I have to wonder if the attacks and misfortunes of the past year have been somehow deliberate, to prevent me from expanding on this education. I don’t buy into that idea totally, but I do have to wonder at it.

When I speak of the “more” I have to offer, this is a part of it, as I wrote in my book. Specifics of becoming UN-indoctrinated must be addressed. It begins in questioning the nature of the reality we see around us at the most fundamental levels. In the future, once I get clear of the attacks and horrible stresses of this past year where I felt attacked on every side, shortly after my book was published, this is the work I wish to continue. To serve my world through education and freeing as many people as I can from the mass forms of mind control, just as indoctrination from birth, that enslaves our world by enslaving our consciousness. Information to educate and enlighten and take back our world, our minds and our very lives from anti-life forces that would wipe us all out because they are spiteful and jealous of the consciousness abilities that lie within us like undiscovered treasure. I am still working daily on creating a space in my life to continue this work, which I consider vital to the survival and “thive-al” of our human species, with love, dignity, respect for one another and our world and environment.

If you are interested in my book, in reading about my own experiences that led to my awakening, it is available here as a paperback and for Kindle:

The book is comprehensive in it’s scope, going far beyond my own experiences, and won an award in the 2014 Indie Spiritual Book Awards.

Circumstances in my life that seemed like attack after attack for over a year after publication prevented me from being able to promote it properly, but that also will soon change, because I’m getting my strength back and my passion for my work.

If you would like to be one of the people who help me to get back on my feet and back to the work I feel is vital to our human survival and evolution into what we as humanity are meant to be, here is the link to the GoFundMe campaign that my friend Janet Sailor graciously started for me to help me get back a life in which I can do my work.

Much Love to you all,

Niara Terela Isley

Update from Niara – Light at the End of the Tunnel


This is an update from my last post. I am doing better, thanks to the support many have offered.

My friend Janet Sailor started a GoFundMe campaign for me to raise more money that could really get me back on my feet. She has been a dear friend since 2009 when I first went public with my experiences. After a conversation with her, she created the campaign as she knows how much writing my book took out of me, having to relive my experiences to write them effectively. I got what care I could afford for my back until my resources ran out. Now there is nothing left and I’m going without chiropractic, acupuncture, Bowen and other forms of care that have really helped in the past. The link will be included below. It is needed.

Funds are needed badly and urgently for dental care which is a ticking time bomb right now, and to be able to seek more care for my back disability. I need to purchase an older Subaru Forester, 2005 or earlier in excellent condition or fix it up for traveling to promote my book again in the future. And I’m not talking dental care in the USA, where it’s exorbitantly expensive, but money to go to Mexico, have lodging and get what I need done there where it’s more affordable.

My life was gutted last year with a series of difficult events when I needed to be well and strong to promote my book. I was already trying to recover from writing the book as well. I could not do it under the pressures and stress I was under at that time. I am still under a lot of pressure and stress – including recent harassment from my landlady a week ago about my dog, in-training to be my service dog. My dog is a prescription from my healthcare providers to help me with my stress levels and PTSD, having her is absolutely necessary, and more than that, protected by federal law. So I did get help getting the landlady to back off and leave me alone finally.

I’m still dealing with massive exhaustion from years of not sleeping well or enough, and the stress of getting ready to move. The good news: I have a couple of options for FINALLY getting into a home in Pagosa Springs on the near horizon. I hope to hear something conclusive about this in the next week to 10 days. Once I’ve moved, I will need significant time to recover from living in this place where the stress levels have been intolerable and the lack of sleep has made it all worse, including my back problems. I just want to get back my health and vitality and get back to work serving the world I live in. Once I have rest and the chance to take care of myself for a while, I have more writing and books planned, videos to teach more about what is going on and how to deal with it, and more. It’s so frustrating to have all of this simmering within and be unable to get moving on it due to exhaustion and stress. Many of you may have noticed how long it’s been since I even did any interviews. I hope to get back to doing them once I’ve rested up and recovered sufficiently. It will have to be after I’ve moved and rested for a while from the work and stresses of the last several years.

As to the GoFundMe campaign: if you were one of the people who contributed to my earlier fundraiser to help get the closing costs money together, there is no pressure on you to contribute again. And even if you are one of my friends who cares about me, there is no pressure to contribute if it is beyond your means right now. If you can share my GoFundMe campaign with others who might help out, that would be very much appreciated. After talking with Janet Sailor about my needs, we decided on an amount of $25,000 to get me back on my feet. On one hand, that sounds like a lot. On the other, in this economy, it’s not that much.

If someone within a reasonable distance from Durango, Colorado had a Subaru Forester in good condition to donate to me rather than money, that would be welcome also. If it’s a major fixer-upper, unless I meet the goal of this GoFundMe campaign, I would not be able to fix it up with all the other expenses I’m facing.

If many people give small amounts, I can reach my goal without creating stress on anyone else, which I would never want for anyone, especially with what I’ve experienced this past year. This is all I ask, what you can give without creating stress for yourselves. If you can’t contribute, I hope you will share the GoFundMe link with others.

Thank you very much, from my heart to yours.


Where Has Niara Been?

It’s seemed forever to me since my last post. I’m going through a very hard time right now and the transition phase I’m in looks like it will take several more months, but I thought I would share with my readers a little of what has been happening.

I finished my book and it was published in November, 2013. The work of it and the emotions of writing it left me in great need of rest and recovery. In writing the book, I at last gave myself full permission to start feeling my feelings about the horrific experiences I have gone through. In the midst of that, I found out my boyfriend had been lying to me and seeing another woman behind my back, likely from the very beginning of our relationship in fall of 2011. I threw him out of my life. It was like suddenly losing my best friend and lover, or at least a person I thought was that for me.

I was devastated. In addition, without the passion and work on the book drivng me any more, kind of creating a bubble in which I worked on the book, the effects of living in an apt that has been continually triggering my PTSD began to really take a huge toll on my health. I don’t sleep well here, have not for many years since with the continual slamming my nervous system never gets a chance to calm down.  The downstairs neighbor continually slams her front door so the floor shakes under my feet and it also knocks the pictures crooked on the walls. She also slams and bangs her interior doors and cabinets – it’s like she never learned to simply shut things in her life, but only slam and bang.

I am in the process of trying to move out of here at last, but there are financial restrictions on what I can have that are making this a long drawn out kind of torture, waiting-waiting-waiting for the right thing to come along. I have not been able to work or write or do any of the other things I might be able to do in a place that gives me enough peace to think clearly. I’m just in a waiting mode, waiting for the right place to come along that will give me a new start. Life has ground completely to a halt where I am living. There are more difficulties going on in my life right now besides these, but hopefully it’s not necessary to give an entire laundry list. Suffice it to say that right now, with all the problems that have been thrown my way this past year, continuing to today, I feel completely bound and – mostly, except for this post today – gagged. So, being sleep deprived, PTSD constantly triggered and being being a nervous wreck is taking a terrible toll. I also deal with daily chronic pain.

I have a lot of plans and ideas for more writing, and more work I would like to offer the world, but with this impending move, my life is in boxes right now while hoping the right home will appear soon… I am in a waiting mode, living, at least for now, an existence where I can’t really move forward in any meaningful way. The one bright spot in my life is my new dog. She has helped me enough to get to the place that I can even write this post.

To this end, since I’m not able to do any work to generate a little more badly needed income right now, I am placing a “Donate” link on my websites. If you can give, and feel in your heart you would like to give something, any amount would be welcome. Thank you in advance from my heart to yours.


Someday, I will resurface with more information, more teaching and more to offer this world I live in, which is my heartfelt desire. Many, many blessings to you my friends and followers who may help in advance.

Much Love,

Close Encounters of the Intimate Kind: An Interview with Richard Dolan

I recently had an wonderful in depth interview with Richard Dolan, who I consider one of the most respected and skilled researchers in the UFO field. He is a great person as well, and I’m very fortunate to count him as one of my friends.

Here is a link to Richard’s website:

In this interview, we discuss a fascinating and challenging topic – the Greys, or Zeta Riticulans and their hybridization program and their necessary study of human sexuality in their endeavors and how it impacts human lives and human sexual expression. Not terribly easy for me to go on public radio and discuss such things that have personally affected me, but very necessary, because I know this has affected others in similar ways, no matter which way the sexual pendulum swung for them – either being over-sexed or completely shut down sexually or both at differing periods of their lives. I put this information out in my book as well so that ET or even also MILAB or mind control abuse survivors can begin to understand the deeper reasons for their perhaps challenging sexual behavior – or their lack of it. The quest for people like us is to heal, to bring our attention and consciousness to bear on what we have experienced, how it has affected us, feel our feelings about it, and then begin to build a picture of what “healthy sexuality” means to us. I have spent a great deal of time on my own healing in this way, and have conducted workshops for women and even mixed groups on exploring what healthy sexuality means on an individual basis – because it can differ from person to person. I will explore these subjects further in a future post.

Here is the interview:



I’ll be watching any comments and will do my best to respond in a post or video later on. Due to the sensitive nature of this interview, I ask that only respectful and earnest questions or comments be posted. If you are interested in my book, here is a link to my earlier book release post:

An ebook edition that can be read on other e-readers than Kindle will be coming soon as well!

I’m off in a few days to speak at the Super Soldier Summit in Las Vegas, NV! For those not attending in person, there will be a livestream that can be purchased to watch the summit from where you are! The subject of my talk is “Who’s Really In Charge?” where I’ll be discussing all the elements on our world that seem to be trying to take total control – of our politics, of our money, our food, water, environment – almost every aspect of our lives. But are they really the ones’ truly “in control”? My final conclusion may be a surprise for many!

Here are links to the 2014 Super Soldier Summit III website and Facebook page, for more information:


Heartfelt thanks for watching and reading… Be well.

For Kindle readers and others in other countries, the Kindle edition of my book is ready and online at in the USA and other countries. Please check the website in your location if you’d like a copy. Here is a link to the USA Amazon website offering the Kindle version: 

Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light; Kindle version

Also, I just found out that for those in Australia or New Zealand who want to order a book, you can order them through the Amazon UK website and get reasonable shipping to your region. I really regret that I can’t send books down there – it costs 2 to 3 times the cost of the book itself to ship “down under” or overseas anywhere actually.


Finally! The book release date is here! For those who have been waiting, my book, Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light: A Journey of Spirit Retrieval and Awakening is ready to buy, for those who’ve been waiting for it to come out. 

I feel so much appreciation to everyone who supported me during this long process with their friendship, with holding space and more. There are no words to express the gratitude I feel for all of you.


If you are ordering from outside the continental USA, please order the book from – simply go to the Amazon site for your country and order it from there. Shipping books to locations outside the continental USA costs as much as the book itself and in some cases, costs 2 or 3 times the cost of the book.

Learning to Cry

“The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.”
~ The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran

I have been through extraordinary trauma; trauma that warps the mind and makes the soul weep, even when my body, conditioned to be stoic and “show no weakness” couldn’t let the weeping happen.

Fortunately, at long last, I am learning to cry; indeed, I can’t really prevent it any more. When I am moved by either grief, beauty or some other upwelling of emotion, I find myself crying. It’s as if some dam of stoicism has cracked and all kinds of tears are pouring forth at times; tears of sadness, grief, of relief, even of joy.

I can only say that it’s better to be able to weep than not. In the past, when I could not allow myself to cry to the point it seemed my ability to cry had been shut off, the internal pressure of needing an outlet for grief and not being able to get it out by giving vent to tears had me feeling like I might implode.

A New Way of Being in the World

In trying to digest way too much from the “information superhighway” that is the internet, and feeling total information overload, another big insight is making a shift from being an information and learning junkie (I’m a lifelong learner and love learning new things!) to being far more inward-focused and moving from my own inner center, listening to impulses to do this or that or just “be.” I still want to learn as needed, but will be tuning in much more deeply to following my inner guidance on what I need moment to moment. I am coming to feel – and trust – that by staying centered as much as possible, moment to moment, I can be guided to what I most need in that same moment. No need to pile on tons upon layered tons of outer data and information “just in case.”

My wonder questions: What could I learn by following my impulses, by making space inside myself for the innate wisdom I might not have even realized was in there because I’m looking outside of myself so much of the time? What knowledge might be seeded within my soul, waiting for an outlet, waiting for a special new way of listening to see what might emerge? I don’t know, but I’m excited to learn new ways of deep listening within to find out. I will be finding ways to put myself in the path of this newer way of being, opening more and more to intuitive guidance, more and more to moving on my inner impulses as much as possible.

First-time Author Learning Curves

I guess I’m a rank amateur when it comes to being a new author. There is so much more to self-publishing a book than I imagined! Next book, I’ll be much wiser. And most likely there will be more books. Right now, I’m in an “aversion to technology mode” out of necessity to get my body back in shape after 4 years of sitting, writing, editing and formatting. After all the work on Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light, it’s time for me to give some tender-loving-care to myself for a while. Writing the book has been a vital part of my healing process… remembering, writing, expressing, sharing. And I’ve discovered in my trauma recovery work studies that the kind of back problems I have are directly related to the sexual assaults I suffered during my experiences. But I believe in the complete resiliency of the body to heal when given the right opportunities, beginning within the realm of consciousness.

Managing My Electronic Life…

Sometime in the future, reworking how I use the internet, including email, Facebook, and other digital means of communication, I’ll be creating more blog postings, written and video. In the comments sections below such entries, I’ll be paying attention to questions that people pose to me about my experiences, and I may create a Facebook group for the same purpose. I will do my best to address these questions in writing or in a short video.

I plan to do some teleconference calls with groups of people where questions can be answered in an interactive, real-time setting. Because for all the people who have suffered trauma in one way or another who resonate with my way of working with people and trauma, I want to be there for you as I can. If you are a person who needs deeper work in this area, please visit my About Body-Centered Therapy page at my sister website, Encounters with Healing to learn more about me and my skills and talents in this area, not the least of which is having gone through the process myself.

Posts on this website and on my Encounters with Healing website will diverge from here on… Encounters with Healing will be more devoted to the healing arts, especially as pertaining to trauma, and teaching about consciousness expansion. Facing the Shadow, Embracing the Light will be for sharing new learnings and insights about extraterrestrials, disclosure and much more about the forces impacting and shaping our world today.

I sincerely hope the book does well out in the world, as of today. I poured into it all my love of this planet, of all life here, and especially my love of humanity and the wonderful things we can become if we can accept our differences and unify to celebrate the hearts and souls that we essentially are, that simply want to love and be loved in return. From my heart to all of yours, I wish you all your highest and best personal and spiritual evolution.

In’lakech – I am another yourself,

Writing, Editing, Proofing… Done!

Well, I wondered if this day would ever come, but it has. I’ve finished all work on the book and it’s off for formatting for self-publishing. Lots of obstacles kept popping up, but I’ve finally prevailed!

I’ll post here again when the book is available for sale! Right now I need to jump into a whole new set of tasks, especially finishing up my Trauma Releasing Exercises training. Still have to complete Level II to work with groups. More tasks to do as well on all kinds of things that have been on hold for a long time due to book work!

Thanks for reading…
