Early abduction experiences lead to increased awareness

from the June 2008 Star Beacon

Exopolitics comes of age in Durango, Colorado

By Ann Ulrich Miller
         Niara Isley is an artist, certified body-centered life coach and writer living in Durango, Colo. She is also an experiencer and researcher of extraterrestrial phenomenon.
         “I feel like I’ve been in a process of spiritual inquiry since very young,” she disclosed recently in a radio interview with Dana Shino of The Purple Phoenix ( “The spiritual inquiry has formed a sort of ‘container’ that has helped me.”
         Niara was brought up in a dysfunctional home, with an alcoholic father and a very codependent mother. Early experiences as a child included a nightmare when Niara was four years old. She woke up screaming. In her dream, she remembered being left under a street lamp. Her sister had left her there and told her she’d pick her up later, but she didn’t. “It was dark everywhere except under the street lamp,” Niara said.
         It wasn’t until many years later, under regressive hypnosis, that it came out as an abduction by the Zeta Reticuli. Niara recalls saying in a child’s voice under hypnosis, “Well, it’s nighttime and it’s dark outside... but my bedroom is full of light.”
         The beings, she said, were scary looking with big heads, big eyes and spindly bodies. As a child she had found their appearance frightening.
In her early childhood she had ongoing abductee/contactee experiences with the Grays, and as she grew older, her feeling was that the Zetas were trying to save their race, and she felt that was a valid concern for them in picking people up and doing some of the things they have done.
         “One of the things the Zeta Reticulans are working on is sexuality and sexual response,” Niara said. “They’ve bred out all emotion and the ability to reproduce as couples. They didn’t want anything to do with it because (long ago) their own passions destroyed their world.”
         She believes she was being used in sexual experiments the Zetas conducted. Although hard for her to talk about, she disclosed that it was very difficult to realize just how much sexual stimulation was given to her by the Zetas so that they could study sexual response. “Sex feels wonderful, and when you’re feeling those feelings, you want to surrender to them. But when you’re with a being that is so far from a human being... it doesn’t feel right. It was really a difficult thing to feel the feelings with beings that were not human beings.” She drew the analogy of “pushing the accelerator” while at the same time “stepping on the brakes.”

Lacking both sexuality and emotion
         Niara found that the Zetas “use the means at their disposal to study human sexual function and response. Under hypnosis, I experienced a clear liquid or gel applied to my genitals as a very young girl, arousing sexual feelings in me that at the time I was not prepared for, both pleasurable and frightening. I read about this clear liquid or gel in a book as an adult years later, cited by another experiencer. The Zetas did not appear to me to have any sexuality or much in the way of emotions.”
         Later on in life, physical evidence emerged from visiting doctors. Every time Niara went in for a pelvic exam or pap test, she was told her uterus was enlarged. The doctors wanted to know if she was pregnant. She would explain that no, that wasn’t possible as she hadn’t been with anybody. A couple of times, she said, they ran pregnancy tests just to be sure. “It was frustrating to hear this every time I got near a doctor,” she commented. She feels she may have been pregnant many times during her child-bearing years and that the fetuses were harvested from the womb by the Zetas through a needle through her belly button.
         At one point she went in for a tubal ligation and, under general anesthetic, when she was opened up, she was still awake, and the doctor said her abdominal cavity was full of adhesions. To her knowledge, she hadn’t had any other procedures done. The Zetas had been harvesting fetuses all along through the needle in her navel.
         Niara spoke a bit about hypnosis as a tool for retrieving lost memories. She said it is important to find a skilled facilitator who doesn’t ask leading questions. Hypnosis has been effective as evidence in a court of law. More recent development has given it less credibility because of “false memory syndrome.” But upon investigation, she found that people with connections to the CIA were on the board who decided this, and it was due to so many embarrassing and damaging memories people were coming out with against the government, so they had to try and discredit any memories brought forward.

Involvement between the Grays and our government
         Niara recommends that interested readers listen to Alfred Labramont Weber’s talk on the Exopolitics Web site ( It discusses former President Eisenhower’s meeting with ETs, which was covered in the December 2006 issue of The Star Beacon (“Ike and the Alien Ambassadors” by Peter Carlson, The Washington Post).
         Niara had a science background and entered the Air Force as an electronics person. She believes the government or military knew she was an abductee, which predisposed her into being pulled into certain things that happened to her in the military.
         “Dan Sherman, author of Above Black: Project Destiny, was inducted into a special intuitive communicator program because the military knew he (and a superior told him so when drafting him for the program) was specially adjusted by ETs while in the womb, making him a candidate with the special skill and talent to be an intuitive communicator. In this program, Sherman communicated telepathically with ETs providing information to the military.”
         She believes that a technology exchange occurred between the Grays and our government. “Zeta Reticulans can pick people up throughout the population, at will, for their genetic experiments,” she said. Also she believes that name swapping was going back and forth, which predisposed her.
         In the Air Force, Niara went into radar electronics, working with auto-track radar, which is war-time surface-to-air missile or anti-aircraft artillery radar.
         “My first duty station in the Air Force was at Nellis Air Force Base at North Las Vegas, Nevada, working every other week out of Tonopah Electronic Warfare Range for the first three months there,” she explained.          But 10 years later, she remembered that during her entire time at Tonopah (in 1980), she only had the most general memories of being there. “I knew I worked there, but didn’t remember the people I worked with, or where I slept at night. Hardly any details whatsoever.” She basically had missing time for three months out of her life.

An event wiped from memory
         Through hypnosis with Budd Hopkins in 1994, she discovered the following story: “I was standing on the deck of the radar van in the middle of the night, seeing saucer-shaped craft in the sky. We had tried to track them earlier while inside the radar van, but they could not be tracked.”          Everyone was dressed in fatigues, with no rank or insignia, and they were warned not to speak to each other. “Up in the sky there were at least nine saucer-shaped craft, one so close that I could see it glowing orange on the bottom.” She remembers feeling so scared, because she thought she was seeing something that was way above her security clearance.
         A short time afterwards, Niara and the people she was with were put on a bus and taken to a medical facility, which she believes was probably Area 51. She can’t think of any other facility they would have been taken to. “We were put in a waiting room, in chairs that ran diagonally from one corner to the other, with backs to the hallway with double doors and lights from the hallway, but no lights in the waiting room.” Then, one by one, they were called into a little room.
         She got called and was told to go in. There was a guard with a sidearm standing there. She was told to lie down on a stainless steel table. She was fully clothed and laid there for a long while, feeling scared. Finally, a man came in wearing a white lab coat. He walked past the guard and up around the table and kept saying to her in a deadpan voice, “Stay calm, stay calm, stay calm.”
         “When he got up on the right side of my head, he then injected my neck with a hypodermic needle,” she revealed. And at that point in the regression session, Niara spontaneously came out of hypnosis and sat bolt upright on the couch with an excruciating headache that lasted for three days.
         The information that came to Niara during that session prompted her journey to understand it. “This plunged me into a completely different world than the one I had supposed I grew up being part of,” she wrote in her January 2008 essay, “Exopolitics Comes of Age” (found on her Web site, “I have delved into this, feared the ridicule myself and, because there was so much I couldn’t get answers to, tried to push it out of my life.”
         Finally, she had to undertake the healing journey that allowed her to integrate her experiences productively into the whole of her life. “I have resisted coming forward as yet another ‘voice in the wilderness’ for a long time,” she proclaims, “and yet, now it seems to be necessary, and my journey has well-equipped me to present what I feel I have to offer on this subject, from a place of heart and conscience.”
         Niara feels there is absolutely nothing to be feared of these extraterrestrials who are visiting us. “Their technology can help us.” The beings are here, visiting the planet, and they are interdimensional. 2012 is coming up, and the shift in evolutionary consciousness will take us into the 5th dimension and “enlightenment of the entire human race.”
         Once a month Niara hosts a group of locals in the Durango area and they share information and films on the subject of UFOs and extraterrestrials. She notes that sightings have increased exponentially on a global basis, and that people need to be prepared for open contact.
         Niara’s blog at, was initiated to share news of exopolitical events and ET disclosures, because “while I heartily applaud all the groups worldwide coming forward to address this issue, I feel that a huge piece is being left out — extraterrestrial technology that our government has had since the Roswell crash and perhaps much more, as research in this area bears out. This technology could hold important keys to solving our current and expanding environmental crisis by providing clean, free energy and removing the need for dangerous and polluting sources of energy — oil, coal and nuclear energy.
         “And if extraterrestrial technology, and perhaps even open contact with ETs themselves, can help us avert a global environmental crisis — if it can help humanity survive, thrive, and have the chance to evolve into the beautiful and magnificent potential I believe we as a species have, my time working to bring it into the mainstream public domain is time very well spent.”
         As a certified Body Center Life Coach, Niara focuses on feelings in the body for healing purposes, and accepts donations for her work. You can learn more about it at Niara may be contacted at Her exopolitics article can be read at American Chronicle Online:
