For the hypnotherapist, the scene with Jacqueline has played out hundreds of times before — different patients, different memories, but always involving extraterrestrials. But you get reassured. They immediately demanded the piece of metal.

Either way, God help you if the nightmares ever come and haunt you What I liked: Sharon Delarose makes a compelling case for her experiences. While I cannot claim to be a victim of an abduction, I can see how her experiences would lead her to the conclusions she reaches in the book. Add to it the paralyzing fear she felt, the recurring dreams, and her explanations of screen memories, and I was intrigued.
I found myself having to jump back and forth to check details when the same events were mentioned in different parts of the book. For believers in UFOs and abductions, I can see how it would bring back haunting memories - screen or otherwise. I would recommend it to anyone who wants more information about the possibilities of UFO abductions and how they might be masked. And, I will be checking my windows before bed tonight! My rating: 4 Stars! Mar 29, Lita Burke rated it it was amazing. Alien Nightmares: Screen Memories of UFO Alien Abductions by Sharon Delarose is a nonfiction book about alien abduction that describes dream imagery and memories about visiting extraterrestrials.
It details her experiences with repeated alien kidnappings. But even false memories have patterns, and this book peels back the mask. Throughout the book, the author correlates empirical events from news media reports and dream journal entries. The writing style is matter-of-fact, has attention to detail, and shows organized thinking. Despite the fantastical subject area, the alien abduction accounts have a refreshing clinical factualness. Believers find reassurance that they share a sobering, and terrifying, comradery with other abductees.
This book does an excellent job of systematically analyzing the dreams and the related actual events. The book could convince the doubter there might be something alien going on, after all. Other readers that demand correlated facts to give credence to fantastical accounts would enjoy the painstaking cross-referencing.
No matter if you are an alien abduction believer or doubter, this book delivers treats for both camps. I have never read a book on alien abductions before, and I must say that while I do think it possible that aliens visited our planets eons ago, it is much more difficult for me to believe that they are zipping in and out around our planet on a daily basis.
That being said, the author makes very compelling arguments and offers some re I have never read a book on alien abductions before, and I must say that while I do think it possible that aliens visited our planets eons ago, it is much more difficult for me to believe that they are zipping in and out around our planet on a daily basis.
That being said, the author makes very compelling arguments and offers some really disturbing insights to back up her claims. One thing I found interesting was the fact that even as a young girl, her dreams bothered her enough that she felt driven to keep a journal of them. The extent to which she is able to correlate her own dreams with the dozens of cases of UFO documented activity is also compelling. I would have liked to see some more scientific evidence; for example, positive pregnancy tests for the two alleged pregnancies she suspects were alien terminated.
The connections she makes between alien activity and religious history are not something new. Over all, this book was a disturbing read. I was a little overwhelmed by the many different dream sequences. I think that readers who have had similar experiences, will appreciate this book. Whether you are a believer or not, you will find this an interesting read.
The author makes it clear that her work is based on memories of dreams, not actual remembered experiences; however, this is not fiction. This is a full-length work, not a short story. Mar 05, Jada Ryker rated it it was amazing. Nonfiction First Person Account Sharon Delarose's firsthand account of her experiences is an interesting work. Her words are compelling and thought-provoking: "I do not possess a single "waking memory" of an alien abduction. What I remember are incredibly vivid UFO dreams and the terror that those "dreams" left me with.
While I refer to them as dreams, it may be more appropriate to call them screen memories of repeated UFO abductions, which is what I now believe them to be. Some UFO researchers refer to screen memories as 'merciful amnesia. All you are left with is a jumble of bizarre memories, vivid dreams, and seemingly irrational fears. You may remember seeing or dreaming about bright lights, UFOs, monsters, floating in the air, or being paralyzed. My dreams took me far beyond that into another world which was sometimes beautiful and other times terrifying.
Delarose is a brave person.
Dec 13, Blaine rated it really liked it. Thanks Sharon. You've brought my insomnia back with a vengeance. This is one book that you may not want to read when it is dark and the wind is howling outside. It's going to tuck and prick at that little seed of doubt or uncertainty you might have in the back of your head. It's going to make you wonder if your thoughts are yours - or something else's.
It's a book you're not going to forget. Read the book, and you'll un Thanks Sharon. Read the book, and you'll understand what I mean. Oct 29, Sahara Foley rated it it was amazing. The author ends the book with her personal take on what the memories mean for her personally and what her experiences could portend on a larger scale. So to be up front, I am a skeptic about everything supernatural, extraterrestrial, spiritual, etc.
I like to experience things first hand or at least have a solid body of evidence. OK, so with that out of the way I said yes to reviewing this book because the author also writes science fiction and I thought it would be very interesting to see how, if at all, her personal experiences color her fiction writing. Over all, it was an interesting experience listening to this book. I have never chatted with someone who believed they were the subject of an alien abduction, let alone a series of abductions that lasted perhaps 2 decades. Instead, she dug through the available literature on the subject and newspaper articles from the relevant time periods and locations.
With that said, she does cite sources such as an episode of the TV seriesUnsolved Mysteries to bolster a certain point. I did have to set my skeptical brain aside in order to simply experience the book. The author does a good job of letting the readers know what she now clearly remembers many of her memories were buried under screen memories or laid dormant for decades and what they signify. I think this book could be an excellent resource for fiction writers researching alien abduction accounts.
She makes several biblical references and how that ancient book might have foretold the coming age of open alien encounters. Then, she gives a personal bit about how her husband and family view her memories. When a person comes in to see her, she knows that, ultimately, it's not going to be just him or her.
The abduction experience begins in childhood. Children, Smith found, start talking about it at around 4 years old. One little boy told Smith about a spider that would come into his room, stand in the corner and talk to him. He drew the spider. It had two big black eyes.
Kids are not always scared when describing alien abduction. After all, childhood is that time when fantastical things are possible. Consider the case of Ron Noel, who, as a year-old, went to see both Smith and her colleague, podiatric surgeon Roger Leir. To date, Leir claims to have removed 16 extraterrestrial-origin implants from patients. Noel was patient No. Noel believes aliens stuck an implant in his wrist when he was 9 years old.
He and some friends were camping in a vacant lot in their Tennessee neighborhood. Soon after going to sleep, they were awakened by a bright light — a star, they thought, which came closer and closer. A blue light shot out, and Noel felt a prickling feeling. He recalls laughing as he began to rise into the air. Onboard a ship, surrounded by skinny gray beings, the boys were told they would not be harmed. Noel was disrobed, examined, implanted, then lowered back down.
Upon their return, the boys were seized by an overwhelming compulsion to eat vegetables. Noel recalls racing over to his neighbor's house and tearing up her garden. Jacqueline believes that she has been abducted repeatedly throughout her life. When she was 4 years old, she says, a spaceship landed in her backyard.
She walked onto it willingly, hand in hand with an alien. These days, her relationship with E. You feel sick, or your tummy feels queasy. For her, it happens in the hazy twilight time between wakefulness and sleep. A light flickers. Or a lamp turns on of its own accord. Shadows seem to solidify and resolve into a presence. I just won't open my eyes. She forces herself to go to sleep faster. One night, Jacqueline was in the living room watching TV with her soon-to-be—ex-boyfriend, year-old choreographer Cosmoe Tayson, who had just gotten home from work.
All of a sudden, he was screaming. She heard a faint voice calling her name. It seemed as if he was yelling at her from so far away. She tried to move but couldn't. Tayson recalls the movements: Her back arched. Her head came up off the pillow. The upper half of her body lifted a foot off the couch as if being yanked from the stomach.
Her right arm flung out in crucifixion position. Her eyes remained closed. The blanket draped over her hung straight down, as if she were the floating girl in a magician's trick. Sex with aliens. It happens, at least as far as some abductees are concerned. The man ejaculates. The aliens collect the sperm. In other cases, male abductees — and Smith notes that, at this point in her lectures, the guys in the audience cross their legs — describe being probed with long needles and a hoselike instrument.
Typically, the man wakes up with triangular-shaped scoop marks on his penis. One poor fellow, she says, didn't even know it was there until he stepped into the shower and the water hit it. Why the sperm collection? The babies are by far the most disturbing aspect of the contemporary alien-abduction narrative. John was driving up the 5 freeway to visit his girlfriend in Northern California on New Year's Eve when he noticed a strange craft hovering over his car. It looked like a stingray: black, flying low, making no noise. He doesn't remember pulling over. One moment he was driving; the next, three hours had passed and his girlfriend was pissed — a classic missing-time scenario.
The experience haunted him for a decade before he summoned up the courage to look into it. Oh my God. Just looking straight ahead. Can't look over me. I'm going higher. I have no control over what's going to happen. John's recorded testimony on the babies is nothing short of heart-wrenching.
The client's speech, Smith explains, often becomes sluggish, as if anesthetized. He is weeping outright now as he describes being led into a room banked by a wall of tanks filled with gelatinous liquid. The tanks have fetuses floating in them. Oh … with an umbilical cord. That it's mine. By John's account, the aliens took him periodically to bond with his child. He saw it as an infant, then as a toddler, then an adolescent.
The last time he saw his son, the child had grown up. Women also can be breeders. Then, one evening in the waking world, she met him at a dinner party. How could this be, she wondered? Her dream lover, present in the flesh. They spoke. He was just as perplexed to meet her. In hypnosis, Jacqueline found an explanation.
Jacqueline believes she is a breeder. She had the symptoms: She'd miss a period. Her clothes wouldn't fit. Her feet swelled. Her breasts and nipples felt tender. Then she'd bleed heavily for 10 days straight. A natural miscarriage?
Or, as she suspects, the aliens removing the fetus? Visits to the doctor turned up normal. But for years, the sight of mothers out in the world with their toddlers would make her cry. In hypnosis, a memory surfaced. The aliens showed her a little girl. The girl was advanced for her age, only 3 months old, but already walking and talking. Another time, she recalls, they escorted her into a room and presented her with six children — all hers. As they scampered around her feet, she noted the children had her features—the same big eyes, round cheeks, full lips and sharp, fine nose — but with fair hair instead of dark.
As a therapist, Yvonne Smith's biggest difficulty is the pain. When her clients cry, she wants to cry with them. Let them know they're safe. Make sure they listen to my voice. For abductees to successfully incorporate the weirdness into their lives, they must first admit that it is indeed happening.
Water is wet. And UFOs exist. Now, why? Why are they doing it?
