Family members suggested Adair was hallucinating, having been ill. However, she was able to describe and draw (in 1964) specific details that we nowadays associate with the features of tall and short ‘Greys’, with lined faces and large black eyes. Adair felt strongly and intuitively, that the beings she recalled in what may have been an altered state were associated with her childhood sighting.
There are some facets of Adair’s 1941 childhood sighting experience that stand out, and which are common factors of many close encounter episodes:
- On that night, Adair could not sleep and lay awake staring out the window long after her parents had retired to bed. While there can be many contributing factors to sleeplessness, similarly, many abductees/experiencers describe feeling ‘wired up’ or restless prior to a contact; on an intuitive level, they sense something is about to happen.
- Adair stated she did not feel afraid or move from the window as the smaller ball of light rapidly approached, and nor did she call out to her parents, although one would expect an 8 year old to have done so. In many close encounter experiences, the target subject appears to be put in an altered state of calm, or a decreased reactionary state, just prior to contact taking place.
- Adair described something akin to an ‘explosion’ taking place, both in her head and all around her, as the light surrounded her body. Experiencers often report hearing a loud clap or explosive sound in or around their head, just prior to the onset of the ‘Oz factor’ (altered state) in which people often report bodily tingling or vibrations and the inability to perform any actions or reactions that would normally be instinctive or intentional. Adair experienced these symptoms as she stood at her window watching the smaller light approach. She was ‘rooted to the spot’ and recalled physical vibrations moving through her body and she felt strange, as when one is losing consciousness.
- Adair had no recollection of what happened next; there was no closure to the event. Instead, there was that all-too-familiar blank, leaving the person guessing as to what might have taken place. She had no recollection of seeing the spherical light/object depart from the paddock and equally no recollection of getting back into her bed.
Following discussions with Adair, it seems to me that her accounts, descriptions and drawings are indicative of contact experiences, with many of the commonly associated anomalous events and intuitive abilities described by experiencers/abductees.
It is my opinion we will witness a significant increase in reports of historic contact experiences from the older generations in the coming years, and this will bring a sense of reality to the extraterrestrial and non-human intelligence contact arena. They will be parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, with a wealth of family, community and work experience behind them, and their word and experiences will be difficult to refute when presented en masse as the subject opens up and becomes accepted by the general public.
In my book, The Dual Soul Connection – The Alien Agenda for Human Advancement, I describe Three Waves of souls incarnating on our planet for the last 100+ years, here to assist our evolution. The First Wave, which I believe Adair could have been part of, has come here to ‘enlighten us – to challenge the norm. Many have deep spiritual understandings and are involved in such pursuits as environmental groups, healing, art and music, but at the same time, many are free spirits and futuristic thinkers, and this can be isolating.
Adair’s family’s obituary for her stated, ‘Her philosophies were beyond her time’.
As many experiencers of contact describe, Adair exhibited a strong sense of purpose throughout her life and a desire to be of help to others, which she performed in her career as a nurse and matron, and in her spiritual pursuits and groups. She recalled a profound visionary experience that occurred in childhood in which she promised to work for mankind.
Adair felt driven to explore spiritual perspectives on life, and was involved in spiritual healing and the development of psychic abilities. In her later years she wrote a booklet, a collection of her personal research into such topics as energy, frequency, telepathy, intelligence, astronomy, light, nature, art, God and Spirit – to name a few. She considered her search for answers to her experiences to be an ongoing investigation and an opportunity for learning and opening to new paradigms.
