Betty Andreasson recalled under hypnosis that as a teenager she was taken into an alien craft, which entered a body of water and emerged in an underground complex. Up to this point, she seemed to be traveling in her physical body, since the trip involved what appeared to be great g-forces of the kind produced by ordinary acceleration. In the underground complex, she was told by “Gray” beings that she was going to be taken home to see the One.
Here is the experience that unfolded next, as relived through hypnotic regression:
Betty: We’re coming up to this wall of glass and a big, big, big, big, big, door. It’s made of glass.
Fred Max: Does it have hinges?
Betty: No. It is so big and there is – I can’t explain it. It is door after door after door after door. He 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 I’m standing there and I’m coming out of myself! There’s two of me! There’s two of me there!… It’s like a twin.
After thus entering an out-of-body state, she went through the door:
Betty: I went in the door and it’s very bright. I can’t take you any further.
Fred Max: Why?
Betty: Because… I can’t take you past this door.
Fred Max: Why are you so happy?
Betty: It’s just, ah, I just can’t tell you about it…. Words cannot explain it. It’s wonderful. It’s for everybody. I just can’t explain this. I understand that everything is one. Everything fits together. It’s beautiful!
This sounds like a typical description of the experience of Brahman realization, a state of consciousness that has been sought by yogis and mystics the world over. In the Vedic tradition, there are several schools of philosophical thought regarding the nature of Brahman realization…
After leaving the door of the One, Betty reported encountering mysterious white-robed beings:
“Okay, I’m outside the door and there’s a tall person there. He’s got white hair and he’s got a white nightgown on and he’s motioning me to come there with him. His nightgown is, is glowing and his hair is white and he’s got bluish eyes.”
This person looked like a normal human, in contrast to the small “Gray” beings she had encountered thus far.
