Read about the astonishing lifetime UFO encounters of John Foster

This is a true story about one man’s encounters with UFOs over a period of 46+ years. It involves physical contact and other dimensional contact with mysterious beings, crafts and objects. As hard as it might be to believe, it was obvious that the beings (some appearing to be human) normally reside somewhere beyond the veil of the visible.

This man was virtually never alone when the encounters occurred. One or more relatives, friends and/or strangers normally accompanied him. The encounters occurred at all times of the day and night, but normally from noon to midnight…from coast to coast and from Canada To Mexico. However, most occurred in Middle America. It all began shortly after his birth in 1937.

The story is supported by some witnesses and what the author/experiencer believes is an enormous number of facts and happenings that extend from the depths of prehistory into his personal modern life and more broadly into our modern human culture. This includes phenomenal occurrences reported through our major religions and folklore, including those historic tales of the tribal people of the entire World. The story is further supported through implications suggested via new discoveries in science…in psychoanalysis, in parapsychology, in modern physics and quantum mechanics. It is a very complex and lengthy story that can help lead to profound answers to the many questions related to all of these fields and other traditional  fields of study and understanding.

However, for one to understand the many mysteries of UFO phenomenon, an open mind is simply a critical  must…i.e. the personal characteristic of “openness,” but an openness accompanied by a sincere sense of logic, discernment and judgement.

The following passage came to the author as he began to write Chapter Six in his second book, To Earth From Heaven…a book that reveals some of the mysteries underlying normal human existence on Planet Earth. The words just came to his mind spontaneously, in a flowing manner, as if they were being dictated by someone unseen who normally resides beyond the veil of the visible.

The beginning of Chapter Six in the book, To Earth From Heaven:    Chapter Six – Openness

‘If I can open my heart and mind, as the river of life flows, the currents move through me — I am the river.

If I am closed and empty, I simply float the currents of time, the torrid streams — I am merely a modest bobber gliding upon the surface of the living waters. The river takes me where it goes.

If I am closed and full, I sink like a rock to the muddy cold bottom and the river flows over.

I am all of these in different ways, at different times, in different places.

Openness is required of us, by “them,” the mysterious UFO intelligences, if they are to help humankind……so they say.’                               ……….John Foster

A UFO causes a head-on car crash at Lake McConaughey late 1940s or early 1950s

We were traveling east on a somewhat remote gravel road that bordered the north shore of Lake McConaughey, which is located on the North Platte River, in Western Nebraska. The sky was black, as it (solar time) was well after sunset. As we drove up over the crest of a hill, we were startled to see what appeared to have been a head-on collision right ahead of us. We stopped and our driver got out of our car to investigate. Continue reading

When I was young

001Hearing “the voice” for the first time:
“When I was very young, about two or three years old, I sometimes would play on the sidewalk, at the corner, in front of our house. And at times I felt excruciating forces on my body and mind. I could hardly move. Hearing roaring sounds above me, I struggled to look upward. I sometimes saw the craft (disc-shaped craft) hovering and moving slowly several yards above me in the fog or haze. And I sometimes heard a voice talking, at times to me about something I could not understand. After I gain control again, I would run to the house to tell my mother.

These mysterious, shocking episodes were only a part of the very unusual beginning of my entire lifetime that was peppered, for more than 46 years, with three dimensional and multidimensional contacts of mysterious crafts and beings that arrived strangely and physically from the unknown…from another place, beyond our time and space”……..John
