Fellow Lightworkers:

From the 4th to the 18th of November, we presented a special pre-publication offer for my new book, Your First Contact, on this website. As a result of your enthusiastic response, we obtained more than enough book orders and have now gone forward with our plans to publish and distribute the books, as promised. I cannot thank you enough.

Your First Contact has deeply impressed those who have read it. One reviewer has called Your First Contact 'a reference work for the awakening'. Others have found it unique because it adds the galactic realm to the existing body of resources on the Ascension.

For those of you who have still not ordered your copy of Your First Contact, it is still available for sale on this website. Order now, and be inspired by its indispensable information regarding our true purpose and our common destiny.

Selamat Gajun! Selamat Ja!

A Commentary By Sheldan Nidle

Ancient Beginnings
The story of 'the Roswell incident' really begins with the galactic wars that ravaged this sector of the Milky Way Galaxy for millions of years. About 900,000 years ago, the remaining contingents of Reptilian and Dinosauran hybrids went underground when the Galactic Federation of Light established a second Earth colony on the lost continent of Lemuria (a now-sunken land in the mid-Pacific Ocean that was destroyed by Atlantis some 25,000 years ago).

Although Reptilian and Dinosauran hybrids made sporadic disruptions in the new colonists' lives, their primary goal was to quietly observe the settlers' strengths and weaknesses. The hybrids expected that, at the right moment, their main forces would return and the information they had gathered would assure the dark side its ultimate victory.

The long-anticipated time never came. Instead, the Reptilian and Dinosauran hybrids were compelled, eventually, to bargain with the off-world 'rebel' forces. The Anunnaki had held crucial government positions in the Atlantean Empire, just before its fiery destruction some 13 millennia ago. Subsequently, these 'underground' Reptilians and Dinosaurans became observers and important allies of the many Anunnaki regimes that secretly ruled our world until about five years ago.

The Facts behind the Crash and Other Similar Incidents
In the 1920s, the informal arrangement between the dark-siders and the Anunnaki was shaken when the Galactic Federation of Light diplomatic teams began to initiate formal contacts with some of your major national governments. This was at a time when the American, British, Canadian, French and German governments were developing and testing some truly remarkable secret technology. This advanced weaponry used high voltage electrical fields and 'zero-point' or photon energy to create protective force fields, produce particle beam weapons and demonstrate exotic types of propulsion.

Quickly, Earth rose in status from an off-limits, 'quarantine' planet to one that, by the early 1930s, was under intense surveillance. Strong confirmation of the need for such scrutiny came during the last year (1945) of the Second World War, when an experimental atomic weapon was exploded in New Mexico, followed by two more bombs, detonated over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These heinous events prompted various star-nations, representing both the Light and the dark, to send spacecraft to directly observe these activities.

The Initial WWII Incidents and the Crash at Roswell
During the 1940s, as well, events occurred that compelled Earth's major governments to deal with the dark 'off-worlders'. Washington State was the site of the first significant US crashes. At the time (1942), the US Navy was able to repudiate the accidents as 'war-related' incidents. Sadly, the cover-up continues to this day.

The major incidents, however, took place in New Mexico between midsummer 1947 and midsummer 1949. Most famous of these is the crash of three Zeta Reticuli observation ships near the city of Roswell, New Mexico, in early July of 1947. The crash occurred during the Zetas' mission to ascertain fledgling US atomic warfare capability, and as a result of their flight path.

During the last year of the War (1945), the US Navy and the US Army Air Force began to experiment with more advanced types of radar. This led, in the mid-1950s, to the successful development of the first highly secret, 'over-the-horizon' radar devices.

Two stations of this type were located in northern areas of New Mexico and Arizona. At the exact moment when their main tracking beams overlapped, they inadvertently created a strong electromagnetic field capable of briefly disrupting the photon beam fields that propel the typical Zeta Reticuli observation ship.

One of the flight paths that these Zeta Reticuli ships chose to observe our planet began at the North Pole, extended down Hudson Bay to the Rockies, and then traced this cordillera into northern Mexico. From there, they followed the lands of northern Mexico into the Caribbean and, finally, back into outer space.

Between the midsummers of 1947 and '49, the two secret experimental radar stations carried out specific tests that, for extended periods, combined tracking beams. During the same time period, numerous Zeta Reticuli ships were ordered by their star-nation to increase surveillance 'runs' over North America. The rest is history.

In early July 1947, three observation crafts encountered the beams of these secret radar facilities, severely disrupting their propulsion fields. The emergency that resulted somewhat resembled a severe 'stall' in a conventional aircraft during high wind turbulence. The spacecrafts' pilots, unable to regain proper control, rapidly lost altitude and crashed.

The Aftermath - Secret Agreements, Et Cetera
Two major crises ensued. First came the nature of the American response. Initially taken aback by the events, the US government sent investigative teams to search New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and northern Mexico and interrogated survivors of this and other recent crashes. Second, the combined governments of the Zeta Reticuli binary star-nation were deeply confused and angered by what they perceived as an unprovoked attack on their unarmed spacecraft.

In 1949, these occurrences almost caused the military forces of Zeta Reticuli to annihilate Earth's population. Swift intervention by various diplomatic teams from the Anunnaki and their Reptilian and Dinosauran allies was able to prevent the escalation of the incidents into an attack upon Earth. They helped to devise a means whereby negotiations between Earth's major governments and the Zeta Reticuli star-nation became possible. Cooler heads prevailed and, finally, in the early 1950s, an 'arrangement' was worked out. For nearly five decades, this 'understanding' brought about a massive increase in 'alien abductions', as well as other vile acts.

The Galactic Federation of Light took a different approach. It attempted to contact Earth's major surface governments (including the US, Canada, the UK, France and Italy), to establish a formal and open exchange between them and the Galactic Federation's diplomatic and technological liaison teams. Because of the cover-up strategy adopted by Earth's major nation-states, their policy of direct governmental contact initially failed. Accordingly, beginning in the early 1950s, the Galactic Federation of Light introduced a program designed to contact various private groups and individuals on Earth. It has continued to this day.

The Spiritual Hierarchy's 'Star-seed' solution
Under the auspices of your local Spiritual Hierarchy, the Galactic Federation of Light has generously aided a project to incarnate vast numbers of 'star-seeds' or Souls that emanate from other worlds to yours. Their primary function is to bring more Light into the Earth plane and, eventually, to become teachers of a newly restored humanity. These 'star-seeds' are a crucial aspect of the local Spiritual Hierarchy's program to transform humanity into full consciousness. From a slow beginning in the late 1930a, the infusion of star-seeds into the Earth plane has rapidly accelerated over the course of the last fifty years.

Clearly, the 'Roswell incident' marks a turning point in Earth's history. It is the decisive moment at which the Light and the dark forces of this galaxy again made direct contact with our world. It ended the deep quarantine that has long kept most star-nations in this galaxy from contacting the people of Mother Earth. Because of it, we are now very close to a massive first contact with the forces of the Galactic Federation of Light. At that time, we will see the beginning of our global society's next great adventure - the open meeting and acknowledgement of its many spiritual and space families.

Dear Friends:

Recently, I had the great opportunity to attend a workshop by Ron Russell called "Crop Circles: Spiritual Machines," at our annual Metaphysical Celebration Fair. For those of you who do not know him, Ron is regional coordinator for the Center for Crop Circle Studies, MUFON field investigator and CSETI board member, as well as a professional artist with works in the Smithsonian and Guggenheim Museums, NASA and on Star Trek. He has also been featured on ABC-20/20, on the Fox program "Sightings", and on BBC-TV.

A few years ago, I attended one of his lectures, which I enjoyed immensely. This time, his presentation included even more crop circles and new information, and it was phenomenal! He showed a great slide presentation of past and recent crop circles (including man-made ones), as well as excellent video footage. It was interesting to see the difference between man-made crop circles and the real, ET ones.

In real crop circles:

  • Because Earth's magnetic field is disrupted, compasses wobble or spin upon entering the circles.
  • Plant stalks are bundled as the circles are formed, in several layers, each layer in different directions.
  • Plant stalks are never broken and flowers (if any) are not damaged.
  • The circles' Sacred geometry is used to communicate to us.
  • Crop circles' energy is very strong, easily measurable by various machines and always felt by those who enter them.
  • Those who stand in crop circles eventually can see ships, balls of light and astral forms.
  • Objects such as crystals and artifacts can often be found at the center of crop circles, or buried under their center.
  • Crop circles form in seconds, often instantaneously.
  • Black helicopters frequently appear overhead.

In man-made crop circles:

  • No sacred geometry is used.
  • The crop is damaged and broken.
  • Energy readings do not change when these crop circles are entered, nor is energy felt while people stand within them.
  • These crop circles can take hours to create.
One of the questions I asked Ron was whether or not there was any significance or pattern to the dates of the crop circles' appearances. For example, how the appearance of a new crop circle relates to the Mayan or galactic calendar. He said he didn't know but that it was a good question and that someone needs to volunteer to research it.

Another person asked if anyone has explored the nutritional value of these crops. Again, Ron said that someone from that field needs to volunteer to study this and that it is a great question. He said the ETs could be "adjusting" us by having these crops enter our food supply.

We learned that crop circles are one way contact has been occurring for thousands of years and they are increasing. Ron said that these circles are a gift to us and believes we are supposed to use our intuition to understand and communicate with them. He said even if one tries to imitate them and create a crop circle, it could be a good thing (like trying to communicate with them). If anyone has the opportunity to visit a crop circle, Ron suggested placing some of the grain on one's altar since it has been "touched".

Much, much more was revealed at this workshop and if you would like more information about crop circles or about Ron Russell's next tour, visit

I would like to share some movies I have recently enjoyed. I think that they would be of special interest to starseeds and Lightworkers, as they all have positive, enlightening messages. They are currently showing in theaters, or are available to buy or rent on VHS or DVD. There are others I have not listed (such as What Dreams May Come) that were released a little earlier, as well as some new ones I haven't yet explored.

The following movie suggestions are categorized, first by ratings and then by release dates. I took care not to reveal anything that would spoil any of your movie watching, just in case you haven't seen these yet.

Disney's The Kid
July 2000
Rated - PG
Stars - Bruce Willis, Spencer Breslin, Emily Mortimer, Lily Tomlin
This movie reveals the concept of time travel and that everything is simultaneous and is happening now. I think Disney's The Kid has important messages for us all, as we go through our own transformation processes. It is great for the whole family.

Mission To Mars
March 2000
Rated - PG
Stars - Tim Robbins, Gary Sinise, Connie Nielsen, Don Cheadle
According to director Brian De Palma, he "tried to avoid all the clichés of science fiction movies" and instead wanted "a whole new look and approach" to his story. I believe that his script discloses many "truths" about what happened on Mars. It reveals the concept that Earth was seeded by life forms from another planet. According to the March 2000 issue of "Time" magazine, this movie "echoes Richard C. Hoagland's 1987 book, The Monuments of Mars. Hoagland [former NASA consultant] postulates that the planet was once inhabited by superior beings, who left their seed on Earth. The theory may not be hard science, but it can make for enthralling science fiction." As the credits roll by, you'll notice that NASA participated in the production of this movie...very interesting. You'll also enjoy the messages and the great visuals in this movie, another one for the whole family.

Galaxy Quest
1999 (on VHS and DVD)
Rated - PG
Stars - Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, and Tony Shalhoub
"Galaxy Quest" is the name of a Star Trek-like TV show from the 1970s. When the cast of the show appears in costume at a science-fiction convention 20 years later, some fans turn out to be authentic extraterrestrials (loving beings), who think the "Galaxy Quest" crew is real. The extraterrestrials take them into space for the adventure of a lifetime! Great special effects, lots of humor (with some seriousness) and excitement for the whole family.

The Sixth Sense
August 1999 (on VHS and DVD)
Rated - PG-13
Stars - Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment, Toni Collette, Olivia Williams, Donnie Wahlberg If you haven't seen "The Sixth Sense" yet, I think it's definitely worth renting. I know that most of you have already seen the previews, which shows a young boy saying, "I see dead people." This movie takes a small peek at what death really is about (and more), without any dogma or superstition. That, along with the great acting, is why I think it appealed to so many, regardless of religious beliefs, and why it has helped to awaken the masses. Not a movie for young children.

The Green Mile
1999/2000 (on VHS and DVD)
Rated - R
Stars - Tom Hanks, Bonnie Hunt, James Cromwell, Michael Clarke Duncan, Graham Greene, Patricia Clarkson
Stephen King wrote this story in 1996 and it became a New York Times bestseller. Although it's a little long (over 3 hours), time will fly as you become immersed in this gripping tale. I don't want to reveal too much (as you can see!) but "The Green Mile" is an incredible, very metaphysical film with superb acting and important messages for all. If you haven't seen this movie yet, set aside a special time for it, as it is another one that you must experience!

The Matrix
1999 (on VHS and DVD)
Rated - R
Stars - Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, Joe Pantoliano
If you haven't seen it already, this is definitely a "must!" -- a very important movie for your personal library. Many who have seen it, have done so several times; it's that kind of a film. Although it's labeled science fiction, viewers interpret this movie in many different ways and it's already considered a classic. With the great acting, action and amazing special effects, your eyes will be glued to the screen until the very end. I think all who saw The Matrix were affected in positive, powerful ways, which I believe is helping with the awakening process and the shift in consciousness. As you can tell, I'm not really giving any hints -- you have to experience this journey for yourself. Sequels to this movie, Matrix 2 and Matrix 3, are coming next year.

Celestial Clouds
Some of you have seen unusual cloud formations described by many as "cloud ships". It is said these formations hide actual spacecraft and do not move in the way other clouds do. They have been known to remain in one location for several hours.

Caroline and Sandy, both members in Payson, Arizona, submitted beautiful photographs to share with you. Sandy photographed all of these spectacular cloud formations seen over Arizona, describing the locations and exactly what she saw.

She divides the photos into Groups #1, #2, and #3.

Also, she included photos of additional cloud formations that (according to Caroline of AZ) "are very much like angel wings."

See Sandy's comments below.

Selamat Gajun!

Cloud Ship Photo Gallery
Group #1 Photos: Summer's Eve, 1998. I watched the lead ship come in from the southeast with a number of ships following. Star Valley, four miles east of Payson, AZ.

They were spaced apart; you can see them slightly on the pictures. They are more visible if you enlarge them. The lead ship stopped over the two mound-type mountains, then the others stopped. I snapped pictures as they changed. They stayed for about two hours. Then, they just disintegrated before my eyes. Very exciting! Regular clouds were moving from the south to the northeast. These UFO clouds moved from the southeast to the west - stopped over the mountains and melted away.

If you consult a map, they were over an area called Hells Gate, west of the town of Young, Arizona.

Group #2 Photos: July 1999, White puffy clouds, bright sunshine. Seemed to be formed from above, pushed around etc., and then disappear. I ran out of film -- Star Valley, AZ.

Group #3 Photo: November 1998, shot in Sedona. They were huge. Evening, looking east from west Sedona, just south of Flagstaff, AZ
