One of the most studied cases of abduction of a human by alien beings is the 1967 experience of Massachusetts wife and mother Betty Andreasson. While in the kitchen of her South Ashburnham home on a January evening, a strange orange light shone through the window while a group of short creatures with humanoid features approached the home and managed to pass through the closed wooden door.
The creatures established telepathic communication with Betty, assured her they meant no harm to her children or father, then led her onboard a saucer-shaped machine stationed in the backyard.
After a rendezvous with a larger spacecraft, Betty was given a physical examination using bizarre equipment prior to having certain knowledge locked in her mind for future reference. Approximately four hours after her abduction, Betty was returned to her home where her family was then taken out of suspended animation and everyone fell asleep.
Betty, who was devoutly Christian, later described her captors as having an angelic quality. When questioned under hypnosis, Betty was able to provide many detailed recollections of what when on during her four hour alien abduction. Her experiences were judged to be both sane and credible by researchers and scientists who performed lie detector tests as well as numerous hypnotic regressions in which her story was always consistent.
The following are the exact transcripts from her hypnotic regression when Betty was regressed to her childhood during one of her first abduction experiences and her encounter with the One. Betty’s words are in blue. The hypnotherapist’s words are in black.
We’re coming up to this wall of glass and a big, big, big, big, big door. It’s made out of glass.
Does it have hinges?
No. It is so big and there is – I can’t explain it. It is door after door after door after door. He (the alien leading her) is stopping there and telling me to stop. I’m just stopping there. He says: “Now you shall enter the door to see the One.” And he says, “Fear not.”
[Then Betty appeared to undergo an out-of-body experience!]
And I’m standing there and I’m coming out of myself! There’s two of me! There’s two of me there!
Are you looking at yourself?
Okay. Do you see the One yet?
The One? No.
Okay, go on.
I’m coming up to the door, and the little person is saying: “Now you shall enter the Great Door and see the glory of the One.” And I’m standing face to face with that door.
[Betty now stood before the strange door. Again she described its appearance and her out-of-body experience.]
There’s a big door there, and it is big, but it is strange. It is like deeper and deeper and deeper. And it’s bright, really bright. And I have to stand before the door. But, before that, I came out of myself. I was just standing over there, and I was standing over here. There were two of me, but that one over there was stiff.
Have you tried to talk to your other self?
That won’t work, because I’m over here, and that one is over there.
She looks exactly like you? Is she making motions to show you she is alive, like breathing, moving her arms?
Would you say she looks like a wax museum piece or something?
No, it looks just like me.
All right, go on.
I was told to come forward. I went in the door, and it’s very bright. I can’t take you any further.
What do you mean, because?
I can’t take you past this door.
Okay, I’ll tell you what. You go past that door alone then for a few minutes, okay?
[Time and again, the hypnotist tried in different ways to induce Betty to tell him what was behind the door – all in vain.]
Sometime maybe, if you change your mind, would you tell me?
I can’t change my mind. It is set.
What would happen to you if you did tell me?
I can’t tell you. I’m sorry.
Okay, let’s proceed to the first thing you can tell me. Fair enough?
Oh! [Betty’s face glows with joy]
What’s happening now?
I’m coming out of that door, and it was wonderful!
Did the One say something exciting?
I can’t tell you. I’m sorry.
Would you say that the One was God?
Do you really know what God is?
I don’t know. I was hoping that you had seen him and could therefore tell me.
I can’t tell you about that.
Okay, let’s proceed. What’s happening now? You just came out of the room, and you feel great.
I come out of the door, and there is a tall white-haired man standing there and he’s got on a long nightgown.
[The next session took place on May 15, 1980. Determined to find out what lay behind the Great Door, the hypnotist again brought Betty back in time to where she was standing before it.]
Where are you?
I’m before this huge great big door. It’s glass. Layers and layers of glass.
What are you standing on?
Let me ask you now: You’re going to see the One now, right?
Why are you going to see the One?
Because it is time for me, they said, for me to go home to see the One.
All right, in other words, does this imply that the One is someone that you have seen before?
I don’t remember.
Okay. Do you know why it is time to see the One? Why haven’t you asked questions?
They haven’t been there very often. Those little people haven’t been there very much for me to ask.
Yeah, but they are asking you to do a lot of things, shall we say.
I know. But, I’m in their place. I can’t do anything.
Okay. In a moment you’re going to see the One, right? We don’t want to waste the experience. We want to get the most out of it. So when you see the One, I want you to ask yourself: “What am I getting out of this? Why am I here? And, what will this mean to me later on in my life?” It’s like any big experience a person is allowed to have. Okay? I want you to progress to where the door is open and you are seeing the One.
[At that very moment, an indescribable smile came over Betty’s face. The only adjective that the investigators could think of to describe it is rapturous. This expression of pure, unrestricted happiness remained on Betty’s face as the hypnotist continued to question her.]
You seem happy. Why are you so happy?
It’s just – ah, I just, I can’t tell you about it.
All right. I know you can’t tell me, but I want you to do a few things. I want you to ask yourself why you are being shown that which you are being shown. In other words, you weren’t given this trip just for a free ride, so to speak. They want you to see what you are seeing. Does that make sense?
All right. Now that you’re there, ask yourself: “What am I getting out of this? Why am I here? What am I supposed to think about after I leave here?”
Oh, it matters not what I get from it.
What do you mean?
It’s – words cannot explain it. It’s wonderful. It’s for everybody. I just can’t tell you this.
You can’t? Okay, why can’t you?
For one thing, it’s too overwhelming and it is – it is indescribable. I just can’t tell you. Besides it’s just impossible for me to tell you.
All right. Are you capable, when looking around you, to tell yourself?
I see it.
Right. That which you can see, you have a grasp of even if you don’t understand it.
I understand it. I’m sorry. I’m just sorry. I wish I could share it with you.
Were you told not to share it with me?
It is like even if I was able to speak it, I wouldn’t be able to speak it. I can’t. I’m sorry.
Were you specifically told not to speak it?
How was it expressed to you?
I can’t tell you those things. I’m sorry.
All right. Can we let the beings speak through you? Suppose you just relax, and I’ll put my hand on your shoulder and with each number you will go deeper and deeper. When I reach three, you will just relax and allow the beings to speak through you. One, two, three.
[Betty began speaking in a strange tongue.]
Okay, Betty, can you explain to me so that I could understand what you have just said?
[Betty begins crying] Father loves the world so very much.
And so many reject him.
Uh huh, okay. You said a lot of words. Can you explain more of what you said?
They will be felt by those who believe and have faith. They will feel the love radiating from them.
Okay, where are you now?
I’m where there is light.
And what do you see?
I cannot tell you this.
Okay, that’s all right. Let me ask you. Do you feel much love, the same love, or any different degree of love now than you have before?
It’s a greater love.
Okay. When will I understand all of the words that the being said through you?
When you allow the Spirit to come upon you and you are filled with that love.
Do you understand all the words that you have said?
I understand them, but they will not come forth.
Okay, I’m trying to understand. I’m not trying to ask you to divulge anything, all right? You understand them, but you can’t express them?
They’re in my heart.
More like a feeling than a concept?
They’re in my heart, in my mind, in my body.
Okay, could you explain this to your children?
[During this hypnotic session, Betty was regressed to a childhood experience when she was single with no children.]
If you have children someday. The words that you spoke, while they had a message of love in them, did they also have a warning?
Yes. Those that do not have love have nothing. Love is the answer.
[Again the hypnotist failed to elicit the information that he sought regarding what Betty had experienced while behind the Great Door. With endless patience, he tried yet again.]
Okay. You’ve seen the One. Do you feel different about anything now than you did before?
Everything is so wonderful!
Is there anybody that you don’t like?
There are some people, shall we say, that aren’t as nice as other people, right?
No, everybody is nice. They are just growing, that’s all. If one doesn’t understand another one, they are just growing, that’s all.
Okay, just relax. You’ve been to see the One and now everything is a little nicer, right?
I understand that everything is one.
What do you mean?
Everything fits together. Everything is one. It’s beautiful! No matter what it is!
[Betty’s experience with the One ends here.]
