I love it - checked it out completely, and am here to testify that your questionnaire is right on target. I'd never looked at a list of things that abductees could 'check off' to see where they fit in.
In order to stay uncontaminated, I've avoided UFO books since the late '80s, and though I know Brad Stieger has a questionnaire that sounds like yours (I've been pointed towards it by many people) I stayed away from reading it. But I couldn't resist reading yours. The thing that blew me away was the 'clown' fear - I have that to a very extreme degree, but didn't connect it to E.T. experiences! As a child I couldn't stand circuses or carnivals, and looking at cotton candy made me vomit. I was placed in a silvery coffin like container (by E.T.s) lined with a pink fluffy stuff that looked like cotton candy, and it impacted me terrifically. I plan to be cremated in order to avoid being put in anything resembling a coffin again!
A huge percentage of the things on your list fit me - in the entire list, found only four things that I had not experienced or did not fit me or my memories. I think you did a great job compiling this questionnaire! I might add, from experience with other abductees, that lots of us seem to have altered vital signs: slower heart rates - in the range of 60-70 beats per minute; lower than average (for their age group) blood pressure, and lower normal body temperatures - the average temp is often in the lower 97 degree range. My heart rate is usually about 64-65 bpm, my temperature is usually about 97.3 - 97. 4 degrees, and my bpm averages about 98/68, unless I am stressed or ill. And many abductees I've talked to have lower vital sign rates than these figures. My abductee daughter also fits this pattern.
Thanks for sending the URL, which I book marked and will check regularly, and my best wishes for continued success with your group!
Peace and blessings, Josi

Re Star Kids Questionnaire
I was so shocked; I was speechless when I read through the list on your questionnaire. There were only five things that I either don't think fit me or can't relate to. Several of them that fit me I hadn't previously put in the star child category, for example: feeling something/someone (an invisible someone) touching me - especially my hair (this has happened to me since childhood); difficulty being in crowds (it really upsets me - I keep looking obsessively over my shoulder); and my compulsion to avoid certain foods, example - red meat, just caught seafood, just picked veggies or fruits.
I have such an aversion to killing anything that I can't put fresh shrimp, crabs, lobsters or fresh picked veggies in boiling water. The last time I threw a head of broccoli (just picked from the garden) in the boiling water I thought I heard it scream -it really took my appetite away. Lots of the things on your list I had already figured out, but those surprised me so much! Another thing is sitting with my back to a room full of people, like in a restaurant - I can't do that - have to have my back to a wall.
I commend you for the really fine job you've done - and can give your lists an A+ from my experiences. You hit a bull's eye with me, and will with many other people too, I'm sure. Thanks for sharing this material - it was very validating for me.
Peace and God's love, Josi

Just checked out your web site. Looks like it is really coming along. Looks lovely and easy to use.
I looked through the questionnaire and found I fitted into the psychological framework except for the fear of open windows, closets and bugs. There are a lot of similarities between abductees/contactees and active researchers aren't there. I noticed the same thing when looking at the differences between NDEers and their researchers/actively interested people. Hang around long enough and it rubs off.
Well I suppose that isn't true. But there are similarities between close contacts and people very interested in UFOs. I remember we had a panel at our meeting one night and remember someone making the comment that the UFO folk were almost pristine. Didn't smoke, drink, swear, gamble, some vegetarians and all very health conscious and intersted in the environment etc. Quite curious, really.
Anyway, will catch up soon. Just wanted to let you know I had been to your web site.
All the best, Sheryl

Rodwells Inner Alchemy CDs
Please also check out my new main website. I have placed a link on my website to Mary's website, as well as giving information about her book and the two videos she has produced. There is also a write-up about my Suport Group, which I am starting up over here in the UK.
is a rather intriguing digital photo that was taken at the Crop Circles
Conference. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Crop Circle Conference
Thank you for a most wonderful evening last Saturday night at the Murdoch University.
We did so enjoy greatly. You leave us as always gasping for more each time we are with you.. You were both brilliant. Thrilled so many interested people had the chance to open their minds more fully. I do so commend you on your courage and fortitude to lift up this mantle to educate and inform the masses. You are not only educating but giving us 'adventurers' a validation after so many years of ridicule and self questioning.
I am reading your book with great gusto and shouting out nearly every page " that's me, that's what happens to me. " So comforting to see and read others accounts of their space travels and visits to other realms. I do not feel so isolated and alone. One can become very lonely in ones isolation. Your book has helped me understand so much more of myself and why I do not fit into the world I find myself in at present. I am SO pleased to have found you.
Tried several times to come to speak with you on Saturday night but each time you were surrounded with eager folks. This was good to see and made my heart happy.
I look forward to our next encounter .
Sincerely Carol Turner ( U3A meeting at the U.W.A.)
