Seeing is believing
The morning prior to my 48th birthday on Sunday August 21 I woke up fairly early in the morning. I love early mornings. The sun had been up for about 45 minutes or so and there is something especially comforting and introspective about the morning time for me, particularly a Sunday morning. It just has a special feel to me that I enjoy. I had shot some photos the day before and had been exceptionally disappointed in the results and began to wonder if something was wrong with my camera. I messed with the settings and felt fairly confident that all was right as far as the camera was concerned so just to be sure I took a test shot indoors. The photo I took was of a particularly messy area to the side of my office. I didn’t pay too much attention to the picture itself and while it was slightly out of focus, the color and everything else was ok so I then proceeded outdoors to take some shots. I changed my settings to match the early morning timeframe outside and began to fire away at the nearby grove of trees to the east of my house.
As I took my photos I really didn’t notice anything unusual about them as I viewed them on the LCD or even after as I reviewed them later on the camera. I took my camera inside and downloaded the pictures immediately and reviewed them right away on my computer. That in and of itself is unusual as I don’t typically do that but what was even more unusual was what I had managed to capture on my camera. It astonished me then as it does now. It changed me forever. Now I realize that that’s a pretty bold statement but after you have an opportunity to review these same photos today I believe you will feel the exact same feeling I had that one Sunday morning in August of 2011. As I reviewed these pictures, astonishment turned to an overwhelming sense or feeling of profound truth and a confidence that indeed all that we see is not all that there is in this life.
About four months earlier in April of 2011 a long-time friend of mine and fellow photographer from Grand Rapids, Michigan named Jason arrived to stay with me for a few weeks. As time went by Jason and I shared and caught up on our lives and the events of the last several years the subject turned to my latest hobby; filming aliens, UFOs and all things extraterrestrial. I took Jason and guided him as I shot at night and he was at a loss to explain what the strange lights were in the sky that I was filming. I also shared with Jason that of late I had become aware of some strange things in the trees around my home.
As I had taken many photos of the sky I had inadvertently captured edges of some of the trees around my house. I began noticing very odd things from time to time in the trees; very, very odd things. I shared some of these photos with my friend Jason and on occasion during the last portions of his visit with me we would sit outside and talk and would look up at one of the closest palm trees near my home and both of us would see what we swore looked like beings or life forms in the tree. They were not always visible making it more challenging.
What was also challenging was grappling with the self-doubt and the feelings of losing one’s grip on sanity that accompanied the acceptance of these “tree beings”. At one point, Jason looked at me and just shook his head in disbelief as he had seen some sort of life form in the palm tree. I rarely mentioned this to friends and only confided this newest discovery to my closest inner circle. Some of them believed me and some of them thought I ought to take a long rest somewhere. But none of them could offer a valid explanation for what these things might be in the trees in Tempe, Arizona.
I began noticing these “tree beings” in February of 2011 as the films and photos revealed some pretty weird sights. At first I thought that the phenomenon was limited to palm trees only and I began to research. My research led me to some pretty strange references and legends. For example, in India and the Middle East there are ancient legends surrounding palm trees that I found intriguing. In ancient times in those areas of the world, palms were believed to house bad spirits or demons and people would often follow certain behavioral modifications in response to these legends. Ancients never slept under palm trees or walked between a palm and a building for example in the fear that the spirits of the tree, which they categorized as evil, might harm them. I wasn’t quite sure what to think about all of that and I really wasn’t eager to label these things as alive or evil until I had more proof of the reality of their existence. That proof came that one Sunday morning in August. I’d like to review those photos with you now.
Motion in the trees
In this series of photographs taken that Sunday morning in August I noticed nothing too terribly strange or unusual about them with the exception that some of them were slightly blurred. It wasn’t until I zoomed in on the photos that the strangeness literally slapped me in the face. The second picture in the set really tells the entire story so I will go into as much detail as I can and may in so doing, slight some of the details in the subsequent photos. I hope not to do that. Also a note before we begin this analysis, I am human. I’m a really busy human and by nature am impatient and find myself growing more so as I age. I may have missed some details in the write up about these photos. I encourage every reader to look at the full sized images as they are posted here on Alien Reality and study them for any details that I may have missed. If you should find any please contact me via email or simply post your thoughts to the blog here.
The second photo as I said pretty much tells the entire story and proves much about our world, our place in it and I say it definitively answers the age old debate between the spiritualists and non spiritualists about the nature of existence. We are simply not flesh and bone that dies off when we cease to be in this realm. There is most assuredly a spirit, a life force, an essence if you will that I believe because of this photo can now be solidly asserted. This photo taken on August 21, 2011 at 5:54AM in Tempe, Arizona is historic to say the very least. When I first looked at it as I mentioned I couldn’t help but notice the blur that you see immediately. I thought perhaps that my camera’s focus had gone out again which had been the source of some of my consternation about my beloved camera the previous day. But as I zoomed in on the photo I could tell that the blur that you see was not created by any distortion of the image by the camera but was in fact caused by motion blur. Something, many something’s’ in fact were in motion in that photo.
“There is most assuredly a spirit, a life force, an essence if you will that because of this photo can now be solidly asserted.”
The second thing that I noticed was the tremendous amount of white, cotton-like stuff that appeared to be almost hanging from the tree itself. This cottony substance on further examination was what was causing the motion blur of the photo. This white cotton-like stuff was in motion and as you looked at each of them very closely but without much effort you could tell that each was an independent thing and to top it off, many if not most of them had some sort of facial features! Granted, they were blurred and in motion and hardly any of the faces of the white material looked anything like a human being but they were faces nonetheless. These were life-forms I was viewing and there were literally thousands of them! There are so many life-forms in this photo that it is impossible to count them all. These life-forms were beings unlike anything I had seen on this planet but yet they were here in my photograph. I was stunned.
The portals have opened
The motion of these beings was toward what appeared to be a red glowing light to the far middle right of the photo. As I examined that light more closely I couldn’t help but notice that it was just a simple street light attached to a large steel street lamp. But the odd thing about that is the street lamp in question which I have photographed many times unintentionally as I did that day has never glowed red. The glowing red light came from where the bulb actually is but that of course you know as any standard street light does, glows yellowish white when it’s turned on. It has never glowed red in color, at least not to my naked eye and furthermore that reddish tinge to the street light appears to be no fluke or camera accident as it is consistently that color in many subsequent photos.
Looking more intently at the reddish light, the source to which all of these life-forces were being drawn you can in the first photo see quite plainly what appears to be am alien being that is being transported in some sort of energy or tube. It is unknown if it is being drawn into the reddish light or if he has already passed through it on the way to some other place. Fascinating. The possibilities and potential explanations for this photo and all of its subsequent revelations began to boggle my mind! I had it seemed, taken a photograph (actually several photographs) of beings who appeared to be not from this earth whose spirit bodies or life forces were rendered non material in order to transport themselves from this place on this planet to somewhere else. This somewhere else could be a spacecraft or an entirely different realm or dimension of reality. Think of the profoundness of this folks. Never in the history of mankind to my knowledge has such a vision or photo or depiction ever been recorded. Think of what this means. It is revolutionary and provides us a glimpse into an entirely different realm that heretofore has not yet been seen by the human eye. Astonishing. I was humbled, comforted and began to be a bit concerned about what I had seen and recorded that day.
Finally, I understand that despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary the powers that be in the world deny the existence of extraterrestrials. Science for the most part denies anything that it cannot see and measure and hence tends to discount or put into the “cannot prove” category any notions of spirit bodies or additional dimensions of existence. Religion does not address this subject either. This is new territory folks and the nature of the human beast is to be threatened by new information. It takes us out of our comfort zone and makes us rethink our place in the world, opening up more questions sometimes than it answers. Threatened people typically act in a hostile manner towards what they perceive to be a threat and should that occur, what a tragic mistake that would be.
As you thumb through the photos taken the morning of August 21, 2011 you see that each of the early photos show in essence the same thing; the transporting of inter-dimensional life forms. The literal seconds in-between each photo shows that this entire process doesn’t really take very long as in each of the later photos the motion blur and number of entities being transported diminishes. This entire process that I recorded with my camera that morning took literally seconds. The later photos however show something different. As the number of inter-dimensional travelers decreases with each subsequent photo and the photos become increasingly more clear and focused, you are able to see some of these life forms in their real and cloaked states. Look through these photos and view the different shapes and objects housed within this grove of trees and I believe that you will be equally challenged by what you see.
Our arriving visitors
I could go into enormous detail on each photo and each spotted entity in the trees but I will spare you that and simply point out a few of these cloaked or camouflaged beings so that if it isn’t readily apparent you might be able to see for yourself what I am attempting to convey. The human mind trains itself early in life to observe and record the world around us as either normal or abnormal. There is so much detail in everything around us that if we were to focus on all of it, we couldn’t begin to take it all in and would hence become bogged down and overwhelmed by the vastness of these every day items. So the mind abbreviates.
If you see a house you think “that’s a house” but typically you don’t recall the color or details associated with your quick glimpse of one single home. If you see a car on the road and are like me your mind says “that’s a car” and as I am not interested in cars in the slightest, I ignore the details. There are others however who because of their interest in cars will see one on the road and instantly pick up far more details about it than I would. That is because we are selectively detailed about some things and others, not so much. The key difference is awareness and interest. If I become interested and aware of cars or even one specific type of car, then my brain takes in many more details than it did before. That same principle applies to viewing these photos. You may look at one of these pictures in this series and your mind might say “that’s just a tree”, and as I bring some of the oddities associated with the picture to your awareness you will begin to see many more details and will understand what I am saying. Awareness is the first step and the key to it all. Let me show you a few examples:
Figures 2.1 & 2.2
I strongly urge you to view the original sizes of these photos available in the photo gallery area and study the details of each. I believe that you will be astounded at what you see. While the majority of this post has focused on the evidence of “what is” as presented in these photographs I will now diverge into speculation and in particular regarding what these beings are doing here and why they may be here now.
Not long ago I heard a gentleman from Hawaii who is a long-time Ufology expert and a highly spiritual man give explanation as to the reason that some aliens are here on this planet. He was shown a video taken over the Pacific Ocean of a series of clouds that resembled ships. These clouds were remarkably similar to those that are being seen not only here in Phoenix, but around the world as well. These strange, morphing clouds apparently are a form of transport for the beings who inhabit them.
The answer, as given by this Hawaiian gentleman was that the beings who come to us in these clouds are inter galactic travelers from an entirely different galaxy than the Milky Way. They are here to observe us at this particular time as mankind and our mother earth pass into a higher dimension of reality, the beginning of which will be as predicted by the Mayan Calendar on December 21, 2012. What they are observing and whether or not their observations will result in any intervention or judgment or assistance to us was not discussed, only that they were watching. The Hawaiian man’s explanation for the presence of these beings on earth at this time was something I wanted to share with you and while the information he shared resonated as true to me, only time will tell.
One thing I will say in closing is that for over two years now I have observed the goings on in the skies over my home. That initial experience blossomed a hundred fold and I can in all truthfulness state that I have seen things that only a few years ago I would have considered to be highly unlikely even in my grandchild’s lifetime. As these beings have come to my awareness they have stepped up their presence in both numbers and visibility.
There is a significant increase in the visibility of these beings even since the first of this year. Something is making them more and more prevalent and more and more visible whether that something is them or natural forces due to our impending planetary changes. One thing is all but certain to me and that is in short order, in a matter of probably a few months, these beings will be seen by all. You my friends who are reading this today bear a responsibility to the rest of humanity to keep them calm, open and accepting of this revelation; for if my experiences are true and accurate, it will happen very, very soon.
