Within Enlightened Materials:
Enlightened Materials, alien abduction and paranormal experiences, as well as material that may enliven and awaken the mind. Here are movies, videos and books whose purpose is to broaden the mind and create inclusion rather than exclusion, which is all too prevalent in the cultures of the Earth at present.
We have put together these resources that we refer to as Enlightened Materials, which we hope will be useful and enjoyable to others seeking information and knowledge that can help us see a bigger picture in life, beyond our world view. We believe these resources have the potential to expand consciousness.
Of course, nothing is so powerful as the inner desire to be a better human being and the willingness to change your perceptions of reality. Unfortunately, we all find too often in this culture, a climate of arrogance and self-importance that permeate the character and qualities of many human beings, keeping them from SEEING behind their perception of things, into what lies behind the appearance world.
We continue to add those books, films & videos that we believe, help to Awaken the soul.

Ancient Aliens :”Presented in the 1968 bestselling book Chariots of the Gods, by Erich von Daniken, the theory of ‘ancient aliens’ rocked people’s beliefs in mankind’s progress. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru, and Indian texts that describe the ‘flying machines of the gods’ were just a few of the odd archaeological artifacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well-known to our ancestors. Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, ANCIENT ALIENS launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings on mans evolution and newly decoded artifacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.”
Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Two-Disc 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition) [Blu-ray] Starring Richard Dreyfuss, François Truffaut, Teri Garr, et al. (Nov 13, 2007) This movies continues to convey the profound mental and emotion experiences someone who has been touched by these events goes through…It is a sterling and highly entertaining film that can trigger and teach….Everyone who is involved in this phenomenon or wants to know about it should definately see this film, maybe more than once.
Communion (1989) This film is based on Whitley Streiber’s book that details his true experience of alien abduction from his cabin in upstate New York. The film also delves into his psychological exploration of this phenomenon. While many people may see this film as a horror movie at the end you find that there is a question of mankind and the Universe, which has to be on the minds of those who are Experiencers/Alien Abductees.
I have heard that Mr. Strieber is now focused on the negative aspects of this phenomenon. I don’t know if that is true, but there are many races of beings within our Universe, as there are many, many different kinds of sentient beings on our planet . Each of us needs to assess our own experience and come to our own conclusions.
When we perceive events that shock our sensibilities as evil, we are throwing out a pretty wide net……… The truth might just be that we are not alone, have never been alone and there are forces that only our souls can comprehend, not our minds.
My view continues to be that this phenomenon has the potential to be revolutionary and therefore Evolutionary, inspiring the development of Human Consciousness. And I do believe that Humanity can and will be better…..That is what I choose to make my life focus about. While I see the obstacles clearly, my life choice is to work for the upliftment of mankind.
They Live (Collector’s Edition) [Blu-ray] Starring Roddy Piper, Keith David and Meg Foster (1988) They influence our decisions without us knowing it. They numb our senses without us feeling it. They control our lives without us realizing it. They Live.
Aside from a slew of new bonus features and a crisp-as-a-hundred-dollar-bill high-def transfer, the film comes complete with an incendiary class-warfare political message that’s just as relevant today as it was back at the height of the Reagan/Bush era. –Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, November 2012
The Federation of Light THE FEDERATION OF LIGHT – and WHITE CLOUD thefederationoflight.ning.com/Information to assist us align with our soul truth under the guidance of The Federation of Light and White Cloud. This is a beautiful website showing many different aspects of our evolution….It is also amazing how we can all work together, to change the consciousness of this planet and that is what we all need to do NOW!

The Friendship Case – Watch Free Documentary Online Newspapers talked about it, people wanted to know, but nobody could penetrate the mystery. What was going on? Strange flying machines were playing the skies of Italy.topdocumentaryfilms.com/friendship-case/
An Italian documentary describing the extraordinary Italian case of alien contact with a group of men and women. This is an amazing video, which shares a story that has waited decades to appear, filled with knowledge given and shared, love, friendship and kindness. I was particularly moved because I refer to the Beings in my book as “friends”, which they also experienced and is made very clear in the information shared regarding the Italian connection. I have also been drawn to Italy many times in my life, almost beyond desire and seemingly into situations where that was where we were going….And of course I love Italy, the food the people and the beauty that surrounds it.
Intruders (1992) : This film is based on the book by Budd Hopkins and is without a doubt a must see for anyone have these paranormal experiences. Even if you have seen it before, seeing it again may awaken memories. The Psychiatrist was fashioned after Dr. John Mack and tells the story of him stumbling upon the alien abduction phenomenon after working with several patients who were all experiencing the same symptoms with the same memories. Eventually, he is forced through the accounts and continuity of experiences shared by many patients, to recognize and becomes aware that there is something “real” happening to these patients. He is then moved to accept the possibility that their events and experiences are actually real. Of course the music drives me nuts in this film because it is classic 1980’s scary! But the film really nails the feelings that alien abductees experience and go through as they “realize” they are living in the world in a different way than others around them. This is a power film that should be watched more than once.
Steven Spielberg Presents Taken (2002) : A TV Series, these Videos continue to add knowledge to the area of Ets & Ufos, especially if you are an Abductee or you may think you have these experiences. Watching this series can help trigger memories. It is always good to find ways to trigger memories on your own, rather than through hypnosis. This 10-part series spans over the time period from the Roswell crash to present. It highlights the story of three families and their experience with the alien beings.
Little Buddha (1994)Amazon.com Really, anyone who is the least bit interested in consciousness will find this film filled with knowledge about the evolution of consciousness. In many ways Little Buddha is a companion piece to Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor. A beautiful travelogue and history lesson unfolds in the two parts of this film: a historical text of Siddhartha (Keanu Reeves) and the contemporary quest of Lama Norbu (Ying Ruocheng), who believes he has found the reincarnation of his former teacher in a Seattle child. The ancient, magical tales sweep away the blasé contemporary action. Ruocheng’s presence drives the story of discovery as the child learns about the teachings of Buddhism. A visual feast that will dazzle both young and old. In fact, were it not a religious icon, the youngsters might want Siddhartha dolls after viewing his magical on-screen adventures. Beautiful cinematography by Vittorio Storaro. –Doug Thomas
The 4400: The Complete Series (2008) : A mass of people who have been abducted by aliens are returned to Earth. Their sense of times, space and even themselves is dramatically different, and the characters are left trying to pick up the pieces and solve various mysterious resulting from the unexplained incident. This may appear as a commercial series but if you are Awake or in the process of Awakening you can find some profound material in this series.
Baraka (2001) DVD Amazon.com This is a very powerful film to watch if you are interested in Awakening and seeing the world through different eyes. I always find this film impactful…on conciousness for anyone. (Here is a small clip.)
3:35 baraka first scene.aviby morpheus790312,078 views The word Baraka means “blessing” in several languages; watching this film, the viewer is blessed with a dazzling barrage of images that transcend language. Filmed in 24 countries and set to an ever-changing global soundtrack, the movie draws some surprising connections between various Peoples and the spaces they inhabit, whether that space is a lonely mountaintop or a crowded cigarette factory. In an early sequence Baraka segues between daily devotions of Tibetan monks, Orthodox Jews, and whirling dervishes, finding more similarity among these rituals than one might expect. And there are other amazing moments, as when sped-up footage of a busy Hong Kong intersection reveals a beautiful symmetry to urban life that could only be appreciated from the perspective of film. Cinematographer Ron Fricke (Koyaanisqatsi) explains that “It’s not where you are that’s important, it’s what’s there.” And what’s here, in Baraka, is a whole world summed up in 104 minutes. –Larisa Lomacky Moore.
The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951) (2009) : An alien visitor, Klaatu, comes to earth, warning that if humanity doesn’t change its direction, life as they know it will come to an end. This may be a more real story than any fiction. These two films may sum up how we are perceived in the Universe by other, more advanced civilizations.

Knowing (2009) : An astrophysicist and his son stumble upon a numeric blueprint for their near future. The son’s ongoing relationship with alien beings comes to a head as the Earth faces a natural event that redefines the existence of life, as humans know it. This movie was a good surprise for me, because I started watching it without knowing what it was about. It touches on so many things that are of profound consequence in our world today.
Peaceful Warrior (Widescreen) Starring Scott Mechlowicz, Amy Smart, Nick Nolte and Ray Wise. This film depicts the relationship between a teacher and a student. It also conveys many of the concepts one may find in the study of consciousness and evolution. The teachings found in the Fourth Way could be this same teaching of consciousness or many of schools of spiritual development.
Amazon.com: The Matrix: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne …The Matrix is an explosive sci-fi adventure about a man who comes to believe that his everyday world is the product of a computer-driven digital matrix that feeds on humans. I have probably seen this film too many times. I didn’t appreciate the series, but this one I found very informative as to how we are living here on the Earth, at this time.
Millennium (1989) : A plane crash serves as the focal point for the unraveling of an investigation that proves to the investigative cop that time and reality are not what he thinks they are. This is a great movie about time travel and the manipulation of matter as well as the concept of PARADOX.
The Lady Movie Trailer – Michelle Yeoh – Aung San Suu Kyi …► 2:31► 2:31www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYLW77CGwEs THE LADY MOVIE TRAILER The epic true story of the peaceful quest of Aung San Suu Kyi, the woman at the center of Burma. For me this is a very important film for anyone who leads a life that is not sanctioned by the culture you live in, but you always seek to make life a little better in this world for others. This exquisite woman gives up everything: her family and her freedom, to help her people in Burma, where her father was murdered because of his politics. Where today this country has the worst Human Rights record of any country in the world. There were moments throughout this film, where I could not watch what was happening, because it broke my heart. But, I made myself continue watching it, to be aware of how much she was willing to give up and what she was willing to endure to be a leader for her people..
The Fifth Element (1997) : This intergalactic thriller is fun, action packed and sets the back drop for an unlikely hero to save the world against its destruction by the Great Evil. In this film, the four elements must come to life but can only do so with the fifth element….and the struggle to find that element is one where time is short. This is such a fun movie, anytime, whether you have seen it once or four times and the concepts are very advanced levels of awareness and consciousness as well as profoundly spiritual ideas. I would not have gone to the theatres to see this movie. But it is really worth watching.
Picnic at Hanging Rock (1979) : This film relates the story of the disappearance of several school girls and their teacher during a picnic to Hanging Rock on Valentines Day in 1900, and the subsequent effect on the local community. Directed by Peter Weir. This film is a stunning portrayal of events of the paranormal and I have no doubt they relate to extraterrestrial involvement.

Memoirs of a Geisha tells the story of a young girl, Chiyo Sakamoto, who is sold into slavery by her family. Her new family then sends her off to school to become a geisha. This movie demonstrates the power of the human spirit and helps us to remember to be grateful for our lives in the face of so much human suffering on this planet.

Amazon.com: Lady in the Water (Widescreen Edition): Bryce Dallas …Frank Lovece of Film Journal International said, “Fans of actor Paul Giamatti or of filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan may get something out of Lady in the Water.
This film doesn’t have very good reviews but I find that in some of the really good movies I see. Movies that project something spiritual and beyond the status quo. This film has some really good material, looking at the world from another place.
Lions For Lambs Starring Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, Robert Redford and Peter Berg. This movie is timeless, addressing issues and scenerios that humanity seems to continue to play out over and over again with each impending and new war we enter. The characters are the same, the issues are the same and it seems that after eons of time humanity has not learned that the most significant and powerful resource on the planet is the human being. Here we see humanity literally offering up their children and in the end, for what?
Ethos: A Time for Change Starring Woody Harrelson, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, et al. (2012) This is an honest look by educated and intelligent people sharing knowledge that supports the well-being of humanity. I have heard many people in Hollywood make fun of Woody Harrelson for his theories on corporations and government. I find this a compelling, interesting and informative video that is just simply intelligent.

One True Thing. Carl Franklin directed this family drama adapted from the 1995 novel by former New York Times columnist Anna Quindlen about a young woman who goes back home to take care of her dying mother. This is a very good movie about the death process and its impact on family relationships. We see those that deny the death process and those who are forced to embrace it, against their will. But they become better human beings.

This 3-part series of interviews with Dr. Vandana Shiva about the future of food is one of the most contentious, revolutionary, profound, and important discussions of any, we have had to date on Food News. This is more than about the safety of biotechnology; its about the ability of all of us to have a choice of the foods that we eat, and for our farmers to be able to freely use their own seeds, and grow food in the manner that they choose.
|PAUL ROBERTS – THE END OF FOOD – YOU TUBE|
Paul Roberts, veteran print journalist, and author of The End of Food, and The End of Oil, speaks at the first ever, Organicology conference, in Portland, Oregon. The story he tells here is a cautionary tale. Modern science has created the industrial agriculture revolution, producing enormous benefits for society. Though over time, many of these very same benefits: lower costs of production, greater production yields, and greater efficiency through increased economies of scale, have led to serious systemic problems that threaten the entire agricultural system, perhaps even our planet.

Her mission to unearth the cause revealed more about the food industry than she could stomach, and impelled her to share her findings with others. Informative and inspiring.|

EXPERIENCERS & ALIEN ABDUCTEES:
Gilbert, Joy, S. (1995). It’s time to remember. A riveting story of one woman’s awakening to alien beings.This little book is a biographical account of my alien abduction experience that Awakened me to what had been happening my entire life. I felt my experiences were not only shattering but were profoundly enlightening as well. These paranormal anomalous experiences led me into shocking and expanded states of consciousness, which allows me to SEE the world very differently than what is considered, the norm.
Yes, at first terrifying and overwhelming. But you soon realize that you have been given an amazing opportunity to SEE the world in a new and powerful way. In this little book I share my experiences knowing that some people will make a joke out of my life and others with think I am insane or just plain crazy. But those people out there who are also having these experiences may find solace and a deeper understanding about their experiences. I truly hope this book will offer another view and that it may lead someone to an awareness of their own profound value and potential. I believe that each of us have the ability to evolve and see the world as it truly exists behind the veil that has been dropped on this planet.
Writing It’s Time to Remember, was very challenging, primarily because it was such a personal account of events that had happened throughout my life. While at University I was trained as a research writer, which is a very different focus and style of writing from a book, which describes such personal and intimate experiences.

Dean Radin’s, The Conscious Universe forever lays to rest any question as to the experimentally demonstrated existence of at least some psychic (or “psi”) phenomena. Using the statistical technique of meta-analysis, Radin methodically and forcefully examines the results from nearly a century of increasingly sophisticated experiments. Notwithstanding the possibility of thousands of researchers committing fraud in a massive decades-long conspiracy, or a complete misapplication and misunderstanding of meta-analysis, the existence of telepathy (mind-to-mind perception), clairvoyance (perception at distance), precognition (perception through time), psychokinesis (mind-matter interaction), and perhaps other psi phenomena (e.g., mental interactions with living organisms) is incontrovertible.
