[dropcap]They[/dropcap] are known as The Watchers. The Protectors. Heavenly Benefactors. Or simply God’s Angels. And each one of us is said to have one or more personal “Guardian Angels” sent to observe, guide, and remove us from harm’s way. They are invisible, but yet we are lead to believe they are never far from our side. In fact, if we are to accept as factual the Scriptures, the Creator has given us the power to command Angels to do our bidding. . .and they CANNOT refuse!
Ok let me say first off – and anyone who knows me can verify this – I am not a religious person in any way, means or form. Seldom go to church. Don’t watch televangelists, and haven’t picked up a Bible unless it’s to check out some reference to what might have been an ancient UFO sighting described in the Holy Book. I did visit the Vatican and produced a 90 minute documentary SECRETS OF THE VATICAN.
Let me explain that I am not an atheist, but I am prone to wanting to examine the evidence and demand proof from scholars, not religious rhetoric. To me, some of the Good Book is just absurd. But I am interested in the supernatural and in miracles, and in visions, and the Bible is a great reference, a fabulous study of a great deal of paranormal activity. And Angels, of course, are as supernatural as you can get.
To prove that we practice “individuality” at the Conspiracy Journal/Bizarre Bazarre which I publish, not everyone on our staff is of like mind. Associate and the author/co-author of numerous books for Inner Light/Global Communications, California-based Sean Casteel expresses his Christianity openly. While he does not have any actual degrees in Biblical studies, he is about as well-versed on the Bible as a layman is likely to get. In addition, he has cultivated friendships with several Christian clergy and even fundamentalists. He is one of the few researchers to have a close Christian connection that he manages to relate to UFOs, though most of his writings are of a secular nature, not being one to proselytize.
Recently, Sean and I worked on a book together that has caused a certain degree of controversy, it being a topic that is a bit out of the scope of what I normally would tackle to either research or write on. Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer pertains to what I call “the dark side of UFOlogy,” i.e. demonic influences, blood rituals, animal and human mutilations, the Nazi tie-in, the shape shifting powers of aliens as well as the morphing of their craft, the Jinn, and a host of other horrifying, shadowy aspects that seem to go hand and hand with the sightings, encounters and abductions. Some UFO witnesses, it turns out, are literally pulled down to hell after what they have experienced. UFOlogists, for the most part not wishing to deal with the possible “Satanic influences,” have avoided this area of investigation like the plague. Its UFOlogy’s “dirty little secret,” but one Sean and I were not willing to sweep under the rug. So, with the help of a number of other luminaries in the field such as Nick Redfern, Chris O’Brien, Allen Greenfield, Tim Swartz, and Scott Corrales, among others, we tackled the subject head on, offering up some pretty starting and frightening conclusions as to what sinister force might be behind this phenomenon.
From the outset of our laboring to edit this material together in a comprehensive manner, Sean was concerned that we might be giving only one side of the story – that we hadn’t told the entire tale. He felt that if some of the UFOs are occupied by “demons,” there have to be others coming here of good will that are of a highly evolved spiritual nature. These beings, whether of a flesh and blood consistency or of a pure etheric serenity in form, are what apparently are referred to in the Bible as Angels that would be part of God’s Heavenly forces.
WAS MY LIFE SAVED BY A GUARDIAN ANGEL
During the time I have been involved in UFO research and in publishing books on what I like to term “alternative studies,” several people have asked me if I have ever had an abduction experience or feel that I am being guided to do this work since hardly anyone else can claim they have made a career since the age of 14 out of publishing such diverse, almost inspired, books and magazines, resulting in printing hundreds of titles which would probably otherwise never have seen the light of day. Well, the only missing time I can recall was in first grade when I tripped over my own two feet while playing a game of kickball in the school playground and ended up in the hospital with a loss of memory and my late sister looking down over me when I came to. I could have been lifted out of my body in some astral way then, but let’s not go that far. Early on, at the age of three or four, I did have a “near death” experience of sorts which I haven’t related previously and which may have involved a guardian angel or some other corporal being.
My father was raised in Kentucky, in the small town of Shelbyville, located about 30 or 35 miles from Louisville. It’s the home of the king of fried chicken, Colonel Sanders .My parents met and married in Kentucky, but soon relocated back to my mom’s home state of New Jersey. My mother had asthma and other allergies, which were relieved by a yearly trip to Kentucky in the family Oldsmobile. Naturally, I went along on the trip, which lasted three or four days, nestled in the back seat with my blanket and toys. One time, as the family “legend” goes, it was getting really late and there were still a few hours of driving to do. My father was at the wheel and wanted to continue right through to their destination. But it was getting increasingly foggy and my mother insisted he pull over to the side of the road right away so as not to meet any unseen traffic.
