My name is Sheldon Nidle and I have been appointed as a representative of the Galactic Federation. This position has been given to me by a Sirian counselor and galactic presence named Washta.
You may sense that Sheldon is somewhat lacking in the critical faculty department. A more sceptical individual might have wondered whether "Washta" was qualified to make such an appointment. (For all we know, "Washta" isn't even his real name!) For reasons we may only speculate about, I suspect that Sheldon became the target of a gang of con men from outer space, intent on eating his brain or some other equally felonious activity.
Whoever Sheldon's contacts were, they were certainly secretive. Rather than landing a spaceship on the lawn of the White House, they preferred to manifest themselves through what is known as "channelling" - in which invisible beings communicate in a manner indistinguishable from the pratings of nutcases or fraudsters. Sheldon, the vessel, or ventriloquial dummy, would emit the words of Washta while his pal Virginia Essene wrote them down for the intended benefit of humanity.
Unfortunately, though, Washta and his gang sold Nidle and Essene a great steaming pile of horse feathers. According to them:
... your solar system is presently poised to enter a vast region of light called the photon belt sometime during a period between March of 1995 and December of 1996. This photon belt—a huge mass of light—will be the vehicle for your restoration to full consciousness and for the complete transformation of your DNA and chakra systems. These unbelievable changes will forever alter not only yourselves, but also your planet and your solar system. This is because the photon belt will move your solar system Into a higher dimension (from 3rd to the 5th), allowing your planet, within the solar system, to move to a new position in space closer to the Sirius star system.
... you are moving from a 3rd-dlrnenslonal physical reality to a 5th-dimenslonal (semi-ethereal) reality. You are moving into a world in which all minds share a common consciousness and human beings no longer have the kind of separate world that you presently have. You are also moving to a consciousness where things can be done by humans that would, at present, be considered miraculous. Therefore, every Earth human must understand what his/her capabilities are and what his/her realities mean. This education project is what the Galactic Federation will be sharing with you before the arrival of the photon belt. Once you have learned to regulate your new consciousness process, it then becomes necessary to understand how you control and utilize thought forms; how you communicate properly with those that have previously died; and how you use this knowledge to aid yourself and others. This entire process will be taught to you by counselors who will land on your planet before the photon belt arrives As this education continues, humans will see that the population must operate as a vast web of Interconnected consciousness After you learn some basic qualities of galactic humanness. you can enjoy having a lighter body and using thought forms to rejuvenate and overcome aging. You will also have the ability to communicate within your own being, with other people, plants and animals including Lady Gaia herself. You will also have full communication with those who have died in previous times as well as those who might today be called angels or archangels. In short you will become both a being of spirit and a being of the physical.
Imagine how disappointed those who fell for Washta's scam must have been when, instead of being transported to a higher dimension, having their DNA upgraded and getting that lighter, more communicative body they'd always dreamed of, they were offered the chance to buy Windows 95. What a swiz.
