Karen Cavalli on The Experience

lettheminA great dialogue between Let Them In: 30 Years of Secret Experiences author Karen Cavalli and I is happening right now on The Experience. This is an interview I approached with trepidation, unsure what to make of the notion of letting them in and/or an experiencer offering guidance. What does guidance mean when it comes to alleged aliens and assorted paranormal phenomena? I feared it would end up me wading through New Age nonsense. I was wrong. In fact, I quite like Karen’s approach.

I’m always saying we have to know what we are before we can ask what the other is. Part of that might have to do with femininity/masculinity. Not male/female specifically, mind you. But just masculinity/femininity.

This is not a topic discussed on the show, but between this week’s and next week’s episodes I wonder if this isn’t something worth discussing in the future. It could be another factor (besides fear) in why some of us take the UFO/ghost “hunter” approach and some try to find deeper personal meaning in our experiences.

For now… on with the show!

Weird Confirmation of A Small Personal Experience

I’ve searched and searched JayVay for the account but I can’t find it. Perhaps I gave it on an episode of Paratopia or in a vlog. Or maybe I just left it on Facebook. I’m not sure–but I know I’ve talked about this publicly. I feel comfortable enough lazily asking so that I don’t have to repeat the whole story, Hey, remember that time a couple of years ago when I talked about walking down the cliff of Pololu Valley and heard a voice in my head that was me but not me tell me to take off my shoes and walk it barefoot? And remember that the lesson of doing so was that my feet just knew where to step when I got out of the way and let them walk, but if I’d intervene to find the shorter path of least resistance–that’s when I’d get hurt (step on a sharp rock, stub my toe, etc.)?

Anyone here remember that?

Now hear this. It’s the first thing McKenna talks about, before the music overwhelms. I believe it confirms what I was saying and because it does, negates what he’s saying in terms of it being an atrophied ability and the need for psychedelics to get back to that mind.
