CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE FIFTH KIND IN MONTERREY,
MEXICO - DECEMBER 1994
By Shari Adamiak ©1995 Executive Director of CSETI
The following is an account - from my point of view -
of events that occurred during a CSETI investigative team activation to
Monterrey, Mexico in Decemer of 1994. While necessarily somewhat
subjective based on my own experiences, every attempt has been made to
present an accurate depiction of events that were experienced by myself
and our team.
CSETI Reacts to Flap in Mexico:
After seeing a tape of a "Hard Copy" program showing an
active wave of UFO activity in Monterrey, Mexico - the third largest metropolis
in Mexico - we made an effort to contact the researcher who had taken those
videos. Santiago Yturria is a thorough researcher and skilled
videographer, along with Diana Perla Chapa, the host of a popular live
talk show on Mexican network television ("Mujeres"), who has had a UFO
group for over 20 years in the state of Nuevo Leon.
Dr. Steven Greer, international director of CSETI, activated
a CSETI Rapid Mobilization Investigative Team (RMIT) to Monterrey to investigate
this current flap. Santiago, Diana, and the entire Ovni Club Nuevo
Leon assisted us, took us to sites, shared their evidence and graciously
welcomed us to Monterrey. Dr. Greer, myself, a woman from New York and
a man, also a videographer, from Minneapolis made up the CSETI team. (Names
furnished upon request.)
Lucid dream activity played a significant role in the
events that unfolded in Monterrey. Three of the team had dreams that
proved to be portents of happenings on this project. I had a dream
in the early hours of December 13th. In it, the extraterrestrials
were showing us the spot where we should come in order to have a meeting
with them. They showed me aerial views, in stop motion - each one
closer to the ground - and marked the site with a strobing turquoise laser
pattern. They showed me a view from the ground, looking up at some
steep peaks, and showed it to me both in day and nighttime views.
The night view revealed two stars in a particular configuration over one
of the peaks.
That very afternoon, Santiago and his friends drove us
to Las Mitras mountains, well known as an area of many sightings of UFOs.
As we approached, it dawned on me that it was identical to what I was shown
in my dream. We decided to use the spot as our field research site that
night. When we came to Las Mitras (so named because the mountain
peaks resemble a bishop's miter hat) that night, the two stars were indeed
in the sky in the same position as I had seen in my lucid dream.
The Team Gets to Work:
The CSETI team had observed some anomalous objects in
the sky at two different sites on the nights of December 11th and 12th,
but the next two nights, the 13th and 14th at the Las Mitres sites, proved
to be exceptional. The Las Mitres mountains contain a large cave where
the local investigators believe that spacecraft conceal themselves when
coming to the Monterrey area. And, unusually dense low clouds were
known to form over the cave and other parts of the peaks very quickly.
On the night of December 13th, the entire CSETI team set up camp at the
base of Las Mitres. We were joined by an American woman who was a friend
of one of our teammates, who was married to a Mexican man and living in
Monterrey. She had arranged our lodging and transportation for us.
Around 10:30 pm, following our first Coherent Thought
Sequencing (a CSETI protocol) session, we observed a very bright light
that appeared in the zenith of the sky, traveling rapidly in an upward
arc that terminated in the center of the constellation Orion. At
10:45 pm, very dense clouds materialized within a minute on parts of the
sheer mountain cliffs.
The Close Encounters Begin:
At approximately 1:00 am, Dr. Greer and another team member
were standing slightly down the gravel road when they observed a bright,
strobe-like white light to appear at the edge of the mountain. At
about the same time, I had gotten up and walked closer towards the brush
at the base of the mountain. Dr. Greer looked for me to tell me of
the strobe light and found me at the spot where it had appeared.
As we stood there, another round light came rolling down the side of the
steep slope. Just then, I felt some invisible energy that felt as
if it were gently pulling me in deeper to the brush. Both Dr. Greer
and I felt there was a presence nearby that, from past experience, led
us to feel there was a spacecraft and extraterrestrial beings very nearby.
Just then, I began to perceive small, square-shouldered
beings in the brush around us. They could be sensed and dimly seen,
but a clear view of them wasn't possible. The little beings were
extremely shy and reticent. They would scurry close to us, then backtrack
quickly into the brush. We could not hear any brush moving or footsteps
but we could dimly see them. To me, they seemed to have on uniforms
that covered their body and legs that were a dull orange-rust color. They
were very short, just up to my knees (I am 5'7"). I became aware
of a telepathic message - they were concerned about our video camera, behind
me to the right. I turned my head and looked. Sure enough,
unknown to me previously as I had not seen it in the dark, was our teammate's
professional camera set up on a tripod. I send back the mental message
to them not to worry, the camera wasn't on and we wouldn't let him touch
it. They seemed to trust my assurance, as the event continued to
unfold. I related this two-way communication to Dr. Greer, who went back
to the other three people and instructed them to stay where they were unless
he called them forward.
These rich, rare exchanges with what appear to be extraterrestrial
life forms are very delicate scenarios. Any sudden, rash or extreme
emotion or movement can thwart the entire event and bring it to a screeching
halt, and the extraterrestrials vanish. Sometimes our second-guessing
of what is needed to allow an event to unfold in all its possible fullness
is accurate; sometimes it is not. It is almost like hesitant dance partners,
longing but afraid to get closer. Until we as a people are more accepting
of close contact with extraterrestrials, our interactions are likely to
continue in this way.
I could mentally 'hear' concerned conversation going on
amongst the small beings. They eventually conveyed to me the message, again
mentally, that they were having difficulty adjusting our energies in preparation
for a meeting because my physical energy was concentrated on my stomach,
trying to digest some food. Just before all this began, I had eaten
about a half of a Power Bar, a dense protein energy food. It was
cold and hard from being in my gear bag for hours and I could feel it kind
of just laying in my stomach. At this point, I sent a very deliberate
message to the life forms: "I give you permission to take it out
of my body". Suddenly, I felt as if someone were standing some distance
away with a fishing line whose hook was inside my stomach. It felt as if
someone were slowing reeling in the line as the food came back out the
way it went in. Now, I detest vomiting more than almost anything
and I was struck by the gentleness that was used in removing this food
from my body. It was only mildly unpleasant. Dr. Greer, an emergency
physician, asked me if I was alright. I told him that I was fine
and that this was being done with my permission. After this little purging,
the energy felt softer, with less intense vibration.
Soon the little beings sent both Dr. Greer and I the message
that if we removed our glasses, we would be able to see them better. Although
I normally use contact lenses, glasses are preferable for field work
when wind and dust often gets blown into my eyes, plus the fact that we
are often in the field until the wee hours of the morning. After
receiving this message, we each removed our glasses. One last request
from the little ETs - that we remove our hats (it had been a chilly night.)
At this point, I could actually feel a harmonious flow of energy between
us,the little beings, and some other unseen source.
Another Being is Perceived:
At this point, the small life forms disappeared. Shafts
of golden light began to come from an unknown, unseen source and lay across
the bushes in front of us. We learned later that the three other
team members behind us could see this as well, although they had not been
able to perceive the small beings. I could feel one of these shafts
of light approach me and fill my torso with a warm, golden glow.
After the light rays faded, a large oval of bluish fog began to form
about ten feet in front of us. As the blue mist began to coalesce,
Dr. Greer and I became aware of a being within it. Although again
we could see him only dimly, he appeared very humanoid, tall, with long
and straight silverish hair. He appeared to be clothed in a light
blue and silver uniform.
We learned later that one team member saw a tendril of
the blue fog travel along the ground towards her. It frightened
her a little until the mist reached her foot and began to send wisps around
her feet. She later told us that there was a gentle kindness about
the fog and all misgivings vanished. However, our American friend
who was not an actual team member became very frightened by the golden
light and blue fog.
We learned later that it was all too much for her - something
the extraterrestrial would tell us. For as we stood there facing
one another, the tall being sent us a message that they would very much
like to manifest more fully in the physical to meet with us, but that if
they did so, one of our team members would be dangerously frightened.
Their caution and concern were touching. And a far cry from the crying
wolf that goes on so often when extraterrestrials are said to be heartless,
devoid of feeling, and out to harm human beings. We in CSETI feel
that this type of encounter points up the absolute need and appropriateness
of doing real-time field work in our efforts to learn exactly what these
beings are all about.
It is important, and interesting, to note that both Dr.
Greer and myself received nearly identical mental messages each time there
was a communication from the extraterrestrial.
Dr. Greer and I consulted one another and decided to send
a joint message. We told the tall being that if they could not come
to us, it was okay with us if they could take us to where they were.
We could sense this was being discussed with a 'central command control',
or his more senior team members. Dr. Greer and I saw a copper-gold
sphere, ten to twelve feet in diameter, begin to coalesce to the left of
the tall being. It never reached material solidity but soon
began to disperse. The tall being then sent us a message that it would
frighten our teammates just as much to see us disappear in front of their
eyes as it would for the ETs to manifest right there. At this time,
we had no idea that any member of our team was having difficulty coping
with these events.
Soon Again, Soon Again:
Finally, after what seemed like a few moments, the tall
being sent us a message that they would not be able to manifest fully in
the physical this night. But they sent a message: "soon again; soon
again". At this point, Dr. Greer went back to speak with the other
team members and I stayed put. For the next five minutes, the being
and I exchanged blessings to each other, to our teams. It was poignant
and lovely. I cannot recall any of the actual 'words' or specific
communications; it was not a left-brained exchange, but was beyond the
bounds of linear thought.
Their Reluctance is Proven Out:
When I joined the others, I learned that our American
friend had become extremely frightened, so much so that she had taken refuge
in our vehicle. We had designated the big Suburban as the 'safe area".
We do this on all our field research - setting aside a specific enclosure
that any team member can go to if unfolding events prove fearful to them.
In fact, it is our policy to send a 'buddy' along, who remains with them
the entire time they wish to stay in the safe area.We divide into buddies
at the beginning of our field session so that each team member is accounted
for, and accountable, at all times. She told us that if she had seen
anything more from the ETs, she would have run screaming down the mountainside.
Preparation is Key:
Her reactions impressed upon us the importance of training
for each team member. It served as a strong reminder to us to be more stringent
in adherence to our policies regarding untrained guests who wanted to join
our field work.
Much to my surprise, Dr. Greer and I learned from our
teammates that we had been standing there, exchanging communication with
the extraterrestrials, for nearly two hours. We both thought no more than
thirty minutes had elapsed. By this time, it was nearly 3:00 am,
so we broke camp and went home.
The Encounters Continue:
The following day was a busy one with an appearance on
Diana Perla Chapa's live TV show ("Mujeres") in the morning, a field trip
to another site in the afternoon, and a talk at the Ovni (UFO) Club that
evening. It was about 11:30 pm by the time we were driving up the
narrow road to our Las Mitras site.
Interestingly, our videographer teammate was absent from
field work. He had decided to stay in the city to visit his friend
and her son. As the Suburban headed up the gravel lane, Dr. Greer
and I simultaneously observed a small, bright light on the side of Las
Mitras. We knew from the previous night that there was no light normally
in that area. Tonight we also had with us our American friend's Mexican
husband. He and our driver assured us there were no houses, no power
lines, no roads, nothing on the sheer cliffs of Las Mitras.
As we came to the base of the mountain, Dr. Greer jumped
from the Suburban while it was still rolling. The other woman and
I jumped out and grabbed the bare necessities of field gear: a 500,000
candle power portable halogen light, our night vision scope, binoculars,
a small camcorder, and a hand-held micro-cassette recorder.
Because of the reaction by an untrained participant the
previous night, we sent our driver and his friend down the road.
We told them we could not afford any panic this night. Unbeknownst
to us at the time, the men went to a spot at the bottom of the road where
they could clearly see the events that unfolded.
Are We in a Spielberg Movie?:
Dr. Greer grabbed the halogen light and sent a signal
to the star-like light on the hillside. Instantly, the light transformed
into a gigantic, brilliant round beam that shot light down the entire mountainside!
We were astonished. It came close to being the time we always joke
about - when events are so incredible that we'll wish we had on "Depends"
undergarments! We continued to have a Close Encounter of the Fifth
Kind - a human- initiated or human-interactive experience - with this craft
for the next two hours and fifteen minutes. An exchange like this,
with a team in the field, is unprecedented.
During the lengthy encounter, we sent light signals to
the craft. The craft would signal back to us in the exact same sequence.
Then its lights would extinguish. Within a few minutes, it would again
illuminate and initiate a signal to us. This went on and on.
Twice during this time period, we saw the shadows of beings walking in
front of the blinding beam. At times, the beam would rotate upon
itself, appearing to the left of its original position - then back where
it was. Once the light seemed to turn over on itself, illuminating
the sparsely forested slope behind it. This was one of the times
when figures were seen to move in the beam.
Hoaxability Ration - Low to Zero:
It must be emphasized that this is a very remote area
devoid of roads. For anyone to have hoaxed this event would have
required something on the scale of a major motion picture crew. There
was simply no way to have moved equipment like this onto these sheer slopes.
It would have caused quite a commotion in the suburbs below if a crew of
that magnitude had traversed those sheer cliffs that day. The area
would have been swarming with lookie-loos.
At the end of the two hours and fifteen minutes, the light,
which by now had split into two candle-flame colored round lights, turned
to brilliant red, shot out a lightning bolt of energy and vanished.
We saw a golden streak shoot through the sky towards the direction of the
ancient volcano, Topochico. And the energy was gone. It was
not until this point that we fully appreciated that 1) we'd been standing
up for all that time, and 2) our hair had stood on end the entire time.
As a side note, I want to report that when we first got out of the vehicle
at the base of the mountain, I heard crickets chirping in stereophonic
synchronicity. One would chirp on our right, then one would chirp on our
left. The chirping was loud and distinct. When I heard it, I told
my teammates that it was significant. I had heard similar chirping
prior to another major encounter in the past. It was moments later
that the gigantic craft illuminated before us.
Eventful Trip Home:
We signalled to our drivers to bring up the Suburban.
When they arrived, we learned that the men had gone to a vantage point
and had seen everything, giving us two independent witnesses. In
fact, from their extra distance the light was not so blinding and they
were able to discern the craft. They both reported seeing a very
large disc-shaped craft with a domed top. The men were extremely
excited. They said they felt bonded now, like brothers. The
American's husband said that his life would never be the same again.
As we were riding on our 30-minute drive home, Dr. Greer
remarked that he felt the ETs would follow us. Within a minute, the
man in front was exclaiming, "la luz, la luz!" (the light, the light!)
We could then see that the gigantic light was visible from the road, showing
itself to us on the opposite side of the mountain from where it had been
at our field site! We stopped at a closed gas station, signalled
and videoed (which came out fuzzy and blurred). You will recall that,
of all nights, our videographer was not with us this night. Coincidence
or orchestrated by the ETs? So many such things happen that we have to
ponder the possibility. This time, the light was not appearing as
two lights side by side. Instead, they were two lights stacked one on top
the other. We continued to observe it on the remainder of the homeward
ride, stopping twice more to observe.
When we arrived home, we climbed up to our flat roof.
We could still see it, even though the entire valley of the city of Monterrey
was now between us, the back side of Las Mitres and the rest of the range.
The lights were still there. They had changed position again and
were now staggered, one atop the other. They had been so bright that we
could see the rock face behind it illuminated. As we watched, the
lights dimmed down to about half their luminosity.
The Craft Revealed:
At this point, we could clearly see the structure of the
craft. It was indeed a large disc with a sloped dome on top.
By measuring with fingers at arm's length, Dr. Greer determined that the
craft was between one-half to one full city block in size.
As the birds began to sing and the sky began to lighten,
we bid goodbye and heartfelt thanks to our visitors for these remarkable
experiences and went inside to sleep, and dream of them.
Executive Director, CSETI
Final Notes: I wish to advise that the three persons
who interacted with the craft as described above included three very responsible
and stable individuals. Dr. Greer is a practicing trauma physician,
father of four, world-renowned expert on extraterrestrial intellignce.
He is the founder of CSETI, and the visionary and guiding force of it.
Our teammate from New York is cofounder of a research foundation, and is
personal friends with world leaders in both the political and private sectors.
And I myself have been educated in the sciences and the law and worked
for many years as a paralegal, which gives me a logical mind upon which
to base my ongoing extraterrestrial experiences.
