Skin Walkers

Skin walkers, ee naaldloosh, bear walkers, ishkitini. These are names given by Native American cultures to a type of harmful witch, who has the ability to turn into – or disguise  themselves as an animal. Most often in the form or shape of coyotes,  wolves, foxes, cougars, dogs, bears, and sometimes even ravens or owls. In the Navajo cultures they are the skin walkers or ee naaldloosh.  Very real, very malevolent beings with the ability to harm and bring misfortune to their victims. In these next two episodes we will be hearing people's experiences with these beings. Along with an interview of a native Navajo person, whose voice and identity has been hidden as it is forbidden to talk about these beings for fear of attracting them to you. My guest tells of their experiences growing up on the reservation at the foot of a grandmother who was a medicine woman and experiencing these beings in their life.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

UFO's in the Night Sky - A Conversation with Bonnie

Imagine, you are a young woman, in your early 30's who has just faced a series of three life threatening strokes. So bad, that you have had to completely learn to talk again. Then imagine that one night when you are at home healing and  struggling to recover your literal voice, that you get this compulsive urge to go outside and look at the night skies.  You don't know why you have this urge, but it is utterly compelling and so you go outside and look up at the night skies. . . . And that is the beginning of almost nightly visitations of unexplained lights and crafts moving in the night skies. How would you feel if this happened to you? Would you feel like you were going crazy? Like it was some kind of side effect from your strokes? Or even worse, that you might be having another? This is my guest Bonnie's on going experiences. Bonnie lives in Texas, in the USA and kindly shares her experiences with us. She talks about how they have changed her life and how she is able to capture these craft in photos almost every single night.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

David & The Star People

I don’t think there would be many people in my listening audience who  have not heard of UFOs, or perhaps even seen them for themselves. Far  off lights moving in the night skies, or even closer encounters. So I  haven’t really gotten into them so much in these past episodes. What we  have heard are Stacy’s experience with the Rendlesham forest /  Woodbridge & Bentwaters US Air Force Bases that were then active in  the UK. We have talked about the mysterious Men-in-Black. And we have  heard Suzy’s most interesting experiences. In this episode we continue the theme. I have as my guest a gentleman from Canada who has also been a UFO experiencer his entire life. In this first part of a two-part episode my guest David  Montgomery. talks about his encounters with UFO's and the occupants of the crafts. I also discuss a few of my own experiences that were similar to his. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

The Men-In-Black

When you hear the words "The Men-in-Black" some of you will immediately, in your mind,  hear that catchy tune sung by Will Smith. Or think of the movie of the same name. For some people however, the fact that a movie was created from real-life events and beings does not escape notice, particularly if you have had the experience of meeting such beings. These meetings sometimes, but not always, follow encounters of whatever description, with UFOs or UAP (unidentified aerial phenomenon), which is the preferred term used these days.  We live in a very mysterious world, and there’s so very much that we  don’t understand about it. And, that is just on this planet…. But, we  also live in a universe that for those of us who are experiencers, know  is teaming with life. There are many things that happen here that just  don’t make any sort of sense at all.  Some say that The Men-in-Black belong in the don't make any sense category. What or who are they? Where do they come from? What is their purpose?   In this episode I explore the myths and the realities of these encounters and beings. I personally had an encounter with these beings the day after a close UFO encounter. I share my story with you in this episode, along with the experiences shared by many other people. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

Reincarnation

Reincarnation.... Rebirth.... Soul Transmitigation.... Metempsychosis.... All words for a belief system that has been around pretty much since man was able to create records. But what is it precisely? Is it real? If it is, then what does it mean for us in this life? How would knowing this is real alter our day to day lives? Alter the way we interact and react with people around us everyday?  In this episode we take a look at different belief systems in the world that subscribe to the notion of reincarnation as a basic tenant of their belief systems. We will also hear of children's reincarnation stories, particularly following the 911 tragedy.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

The Moehau Man

Throughout the world there are stories and legends of huge, hairy, ape-like creatures that have persisted over the centuries, through re-tellings of cultural myths and legends. Also ,of actual reported sightings of such creatures. These beings go by many different names. In North America, they are called Sasquatch, or the more common name of Bigfoot. Across the ditch in Australia, they are called the Yowie. In the Himalayas and parts of Asia they are called the Yeti, or the Meh Teh. So many different names for the same creature, or family of creatures. New Zealand with our geographical isolation is not immune from such a being. We call ours the Moehau Man. He also has other names in New Zealand, dependent on the part of the country he is seen in. Names such as Maero, Matau, Tuuhourangi, Taongina, and Rapuwai. In this episode I explore the myths of this creature. Hear actual reported sightings, and finally I interview a guest Marc Copell who is has had actually experiences with these creatures and is now in the process of creating a documentary about them. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

Music Of The Plants

In this two-part episode my former guest Gary Cook returns to talk with us about his ongoing research with plants and how we and nature are totally interconnected on so many levels. He discusses how plants communicate with each other, as has been discovered in recent scientific research.  Gary is a very well known New Zealand and Internationally published author, favourite guest lecturer and documentary maker.  And, he talks in his beautiful, rambling way, sharing his experiences as he talks, about how nature is such a vital part of our life and how we as a species have become plant blind. How we rarely even notice the plants that are around us any more. He discusses how plants not only communicate with each other, but can communicate with us as well. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

Suzy & The Star People

Can you imagine what it would be like to be driving home one night, when all of a sudden your car is surrounded by this blinding bright light and as you struggle to keep conscious awareness, you look over and see the driver of your car is unconscious. With your last remaining consciousness, you are aware that your car is rising off the ground?. . . . Or you wake one night, bolt upright in bed. Only to realise that your bed is surround by beings in a bright light. Beings with large, black, almond shaped eyes. Or you have periods of missing time. These are events that happened to my guest Suzy Hansen. Author of the book "The Duel Soul Connection: The Alien Agenda For Human Advancement", head of New Zealand's professional UFO investigation group UFOCUS NZ. A respected researcher in her field and frequently requested speaker and Conferences here in New Zealand and overseas. And a life-long UFO experiencer.

Glitch in the Matrix - A Holographic Reality?

In this episode I take a close look at what have commonly become referred to as "glitches in the matrix" after that famous Matrix movie starring Keanu Reeves. These are experiences that have left people scratching their heads and wondering what just happened to them. With no logical explanation that can be found for it.  I take a very brief excursion into the world of holograms, and the holographic universe theory. Of quantum physics and the brightest brains in these areas in the world, who suggest that this world is, in fact, a holographic reality. I look at the Mandela Effect and how living in a holographic reality that has parallel dimensions could possibly explain this. And I  have experiences that people like you have had, that they simply cannot explain. As Elon Musk says: “There is a ONE in a billion chance that we might NOT be living in a simulation.” --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

The Bentwaters Incident - A New Perspective.

Imagine being 19 years old. In the US Military, a member of the military police force. In a foreign country. Your base is on lock down due to some unknown activity and you are assigned to guard the East gate of your base. Whilst doing so, you come face to face with something completely out of this world, literally. How would you cope at the time? What would you do afterwards? How would it affect the rest of your life? And then the following night another incident occurs that you witness, how would that shatter your paradigms of reality? These are the actual events that happened to my guest M. Stacy Smith in 1980. During what has become one of the world's most famous UFO incidents. Called the  Rendlesham Forest incident. My guest was based on the Bentwaters,  base on England’s East Coast.  Stacy has never before come forward publically to speak about his experiences on those nights, but he is doing so for the very first time with me. And what a story it is. . . .  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

The Kaikoura Incidents

New Zealand is a small country in the South Pacific, for those who  don’t know us. Comprising of two main Islands, the North and the South  Islands. We are the last stop, and the main gateway to most countries in  the world who have bases in the Antarctic. So geographically we are a  fairly isolated country, however, our isolation does not preclude us  from our fair share of UFO sightings and encounters….  This episode is about our most famous sighting. One that made the news all over the world and is widely regarded as being in the world's top ten credible, filmed UFO encounters. In this episode I  go over a timeline of the events on both nights and basic rundown of the over all events. Also, I am very thrilled to have one of the last surviving professional witnesses to those encounters. My guest is a gentleman, now in his late eighties, who was on duty and in control of the Wellington  Air Traffic Control Center at the time of these incidents. He is so kind as to share his recollection of the events with us all. His name is John Cordy.  John shares with us his recollections of how the events unfolded and the ongoing effect this has had on his life. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

Near Death Experiences (NDE)

There are people who have died, often traumatically, but were able to be revived. Very often these people have unusual experiences before being revived. These are called Near Death Experiences (NDE).  There are commonalities to these experiences, such as seeing the body laying there and watching medical personal working on it. Seeing huge tunnels of light. Seeing loved ones who have passed over and much more. In this episode I explore this subject , we hear of people's experiences, including my own fathers. And interview a gentleman by the name of Ned Matinnia who runs a large Facebook group for NDE experiencers. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

A Forest Encounter

Forestry is one of New Zealand's main export industries, and so we have many, many small and large crews working in the the bush, as we say here in New Zealand. Very often these work sites are deep into the forest lands and quite isolated from near by towns or cities. Some even hours of driving away. Their very geographical isolation causes these groups, who generally camp on the worksite in these cases, to become a tight, close knit working whanau, or family.  Sometimes the world of us humans and the world of the Elemental, interdimensional beings clash, as in this case. What happens then? Is this a good experience for the human, or is it possibly not?  And what would you do if you were in such a situation, where you came  across such a being? How would you react? What would you do? And, how would this be experienced for you? My guest in this episode has requested to remain anonymous and I have respected their wish. This guest shares their experiences with us, that happened whilst they were working deep within the heart of a specific area of the New Zealand forest.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

Listeners Speak.

A little while ago I received an email from a listener in the United  States, his name was Rob. He initially emailed me stating that he had an  experience when he was visiting New Zealand, that he would like to  share and get my opinion on.  So, he shared with me a story of an experience  that he had with the Patupaiarehe – or the New Zealand Fairy folk,  during a visit to the Waitomo district,  in the North Island of New Zealand. It is a long, but a very  interesting experience, and he also has a photo of the spot he felt he  was being observed from, that shows something anomalous! The photos are  on, this episode’s page of the podcasts website.   I also share feedback sent in from listeners like yourself, and share a little about myself, your host. As I had not done this when the podcast was started 20 episodes ago to round off this my first season of this podcast. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

Things That Go Bump! In The Night

Ghosts, spirits, hants, poltergiest, specters, all names for people that have died, but for one reason or another chose to remain around this realm of existence. Some do so because they have unfinished business. Some because they fear to move on, perhaps because of mistakes they made in this life, or how their life ended.....  But, for whatever reason these beings remain they sometimes haunt the living, often creating fear and terror in those who experience them. In this episode we hear experiences of people just like you or I, who have been witnesses to such events. Some of these stories are touching. Some will definitely leave a chill up your spine. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

The Black-Eyed Kids

Picture this: You are asleep in bed, it's 2am. Suddenly you are woken by the sound of persistent knocking on your front door, rubbing the sleep from your eyes you go to the door and open it. To your surprise you see two wee children standing on your doorstep. It's the middle of winter, but these kids are dressed in inadequate clothing for the weather. Looking at them you are overcome by an irrational and unexplainable terror. Despite that, your concern for the kids overrides your fears and you ask them what they want and where are their parents? They ask if they can be let in so they can phone them. And then they look up at you and to your horror their eyes are completely black, no whites, no colour whatsoever. Your impulse is to slam the door shut, but inexplicably and against your will, you notice you are actually opening it further. Black-eyed kids. What are they? Where do they come from? What do they want? Are they real or simply an urban legend? In this episode we'll hear theories and experiences from those who have witnessed these enigmatic and strange looking children. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

Tyler's Return

Losing someone we love is a very painful, very difficult and heartbreaking journey. There are so many questions we are left with.... The least of which is do they continue on?  If they do, can they let us know they are still around us? And are they aware of our pain at their loss? Do they know how much we love them?  Deb., tells us all about experiences she had for the period of 18 months following the death of her then, young (27 year old) husband. How her place was 'haunted' by him but it is not in the least scary. It's a love story, touching and very raw, of how love transcends death and how life continues after this existence. Even now 16 years afterwards, the pain is still raw for her.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message

Signs from the other side.

Death, the final frontier – to change a quote from an old TV series, if you’re a trekie, then you will know it. But is death the final frontier, the end of us? Or is it just the end of our physical body, the vehicle that we currently use? Like with the victims of Spontaneous Human Combustion in our last episode? What do you think? In this episode I discuss ways our loved ones who have passed over may try to let us know that they are still around us. Still living, albeit in another reality, another form.

Spontaneous Human Combustion

Imagine if you will, simply sitting down to have a cup of tea, or sitting with a friend preparing for a fishing trip, when with no external heat source your body simply bursts into flames, burning you from inside of your body to the outside? Would you even feel the flames? Would you be aware that this was happening to you? And even if you were, could you do anything about it?  Or imagine that you are a witness to such an episode? How would you react? What would you do? These are the situations that this episode confronts. This episode is about the phenomena of Spontaneous Human Combustion, and shares witnessed and documented real-life accounts of people who have perished in this manner and a few rare, very lucky people who had this happen to them, but survived to share their experiences. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/walking-the-shadowlands/message
