Why You Should Pass on Repressed Memory Therapy

A former U.S. Air Force worker who claims she was abducted multiple times by alien reptiles who raped her on the moon is the latest reason why people should avoid any participation in repressed memory therapy.

The UK Mirror is reporting on the story of Niara Terela Isley, a writer, artist and body-centered life coach who once worked as a radar tracking officer in the U.S. Air Force and claims that she was abducted by a “humanoid with a tail” when she was 25 years old and taken to a secret base on the far side of the moon where she was repeatedly raped.

Isley, who worked at the Tonopah Test Range in Nevada, claims that she discovered a three-month block of missing time in 1990. She enlisted the help of the so-called “father of the alien abduction movement”, the late Budd Hopkins to help her retrieve her memories.

Hopkins was an artist-turned-hypnotist with no education in psychology who became interested in UFO’s and alien visitations after experiencing a daylight sighting of an unidentified flying object in 1964. When he reported the sighting and received little response from a nearby National Guard base, he suspected a government cover-up and began researching other incidents of UFO sightings. Eventually he became a well-known figure in the field of alien abduction therapy.

He was a perfect fit for Isley who enlisted Hopkins to help her discover what took place during those missing months as well as to analyze other memories and strange dreams that had afflicted her childhood.

She claims that these therapy sessions helped her to discover that she had been taken into space eight to 10 times over the course of several months when she was 25 years old.

Describing her abductor, she said: “He was humanoid and did have a tail.” He also had yellow eyes with vertical slit pupils.

The sexual abuse took place on the “dark side” of the moon where she was passed around from one reptile to another.

Isley eventually wrote a book about her recovered memories, entitled Embracing the Shadow, Embracing the Light: A Journey of Spirit Retrieval and Awakening which she describes as “one woman’s induction into the world of extraterrestrials, flying saucers, shadow government operations and her own transformation.”

As I describe in my book, the Learn to Discern Compendium: Is It Christian or New Age, stories such as these are the reason why testimony retrieved during repressed memory and/or past life regression therapy is not allowed in most U.S. courtrooms. It’s simply too easy for a therapist, especially one with strong beliefs such as Budd Hopkins, to introduce an idea into the mind of a patient that leads them to believe something happened when it didn’t. This phenomenon, known as false memory syndrome, has been responsible for many a ruined life by someone who claims they were raped or molested by friends or relatives who end up being falsely accused.

As for Isley’s alleged experience, she seems to be making the best of it, saying that she’s working to “create the common energetic ground in human consciousness for extraterrestrial contact with our galactic human family to unfold and become a multi-dimensional reality for Terran humankind.”

The rest of us see this story as a gigantic red flag billowing in the wind and warning us all to stay as far away as possible from any form of this dubious use of hypnosis.
