Jocelyn Buckner, The Bradshaw Ranch Mystery - UFOs, Paranormal and Unexplained

In league with the Black Swan - the Que Sera approach to Uncertainty: Influence of the unfathomable exists to upend whatever all-knowing account 'prediction' supposes. Endless possibilities arise when one practices creative projectivity.

Wendy's Coffeehouse 9/16 - Jocelyn Buckner - The Bradshaw Ranch

Now retired, Intuitive Jocelyn Buckner was a vortex tour guide. She plans to release a couple of e-books on Sedona. One is a general tour guide and the other focuses on a paranormal hot spot: the Bradshaw Ranch.

Fascinated by the stories comparing Bradshaw Ranch to the Skinwalker Ranch, I wanted to talk with someone who had actually been on site. Jocelyn is very familiar with the ranch and shares what she knows, including her own experiences regarding paranormal, ET, Bigfoot, and UFO stories surrounding the Bradshaw Ranch.

We were limited on time at KCMO. I also talked about what drew her to Sedona in the first place. Great story involving a ceremony at Giant Rock and a psychic who told her she would relocate to Sedona for a specific purpose.

For the rest of the story - check out my other weekly podcast. Conscious Living on Empower Radio.

I've included the picture I took at Sedona in June of 2018. I found this video after our trip. The cool part is the orb activity matches orbs I caught in my digital images that I didn't see at the time.

“I believe these openings have always been on our plane and they’ve perhaps been the portals to allow others in, but if one were to ask my opinion of my experiences regarding this magical place, I would say that not only are they being allowed in, but they are coming in in great numbers. - Linda Bradshaw, Co-Author with Tom Dongo, Merging Dimensions - Source

One of the reviews of that book offers a perspective on the validity of the contents and gives me a chance to offer one of my own accounts relating to fear: 2010 or 2011, I journaled an encounter.

--- My guides had given me a heads up warning that alien (ET, Extradimensional) encounters will challenge and elude us until we are able to control our fear. They said in no uncertain terms: "You need to work on your fear."

Failing to understand the point, I responded that I had endured some frightening situations unscathed - including paranormal/unexplained and physically life-threatening encounters of the Human kind. I assured the guides fear was not an issue for me. Then came the test.

Around 3 am one morning, I felt a presence in the corner of the bedroom. In that half-waking state, I sensed something but saw nothing.

Then I heard it. A mechanical voice spoke my name. Reaction was immediate and completely involuntary. I froze. Five star alarm!

Audible to me, the 'voice' didn't wake my husband nor did the pets (1 dog, 2 cats) react. Electronic.  Something about the frequency of that sound (the fracturing of my name made it "Wenny" instead of Wendy) was so completely unnatural and unnerving to me, so foreign that I could not fathom a source.

As that sound resonated, it triggered a fight-or-flight reflex that included a sharp burst of energy from my toes to my head. Momentarily frozen, while immediately trying to pull back my alarm - I was so frustrated because I KNEW that reflex response had shut down the flow. My insight was essentially blown offline. I then understood what the guides had inferred regarding fear as a stumbling block.

When the innate, survival response kicked in, I lost the ability to engage with the 'other' who was trying to connect with me. I activated a self-protection, lock down mode.

For my benefit, that demonstration was intended to highlight the chasm between our species and elements so foreign to our core code that the survival instinct is triggered and we are blocked from the encounter. 

Hearing the guides chuckling afterward, I asked what was so funny.

Their matter-of-fact response: "We told you, you need to work on your fear." ---

Similar to an OBE, one of the experiences Jocelyn shares involves walking into a parallel dimension (my description) where she is able to see others and even 'touch' someone in her group but they cannot see or sense her presence.

Only when she retraces her steps does she then become 'visible' again. Among the paranormal anomalies Linda Bradshaw experienced was a sense of being touched by unseen others. A connection?

2 Synchronicities -
  • 1/On the morning of the interview with Jocelyn, prior to getting out of bed, I felt something push against my head, deliberate touch without form. Wondering at the significance while shifting position to push my head deeper into the pillow (By now, I have had multiple encounters with unseen entities of all sorts.) it wasn't fear that surfaced. It was irritation in thinking I had to get up soon enough. I didn't have time for hide and seek puzzles.
  • 2/Gazing up at the sky overnight, I saw multiple streaks, like meteors. I shifted my point of view and noticed a bright white star. It flashed at me.

In the conversation with Jocelyn later that following day, I made the connection: Presence. How well I know others among us can be hidden in plain view and seen only by some. (Talking to Nightlights)

At least, in my case, the close encounters seem to be pre-planned, coordinated with spirit guides and beneficent others. Activities, exercises and encounters are geared toward evolving the collective consciousness, whether we know it or not.

Each goes at his own pace.

Dr. Sean Daley, Paranormal in the classroom. Plus, Odd, Offbeat and Weird never go out of style.*

Wendy's Coffeehouse interview with Prof. Sean Daley - Paranormal Anthropology. One of several classes offered at Johnson County Community College where students can earn credit for learning about Ghosts and their haunts. Perks include optional investigations and tours of haunted locations.

Concluding from results by Daley and his investigation teams, one of the most consistent paranormal performers - in terms of encounters with the unknown and unexplained - is the Sallie House in nearby Atchison, Kansas. This is the video (Link) I mentioned during our interview - the one with the self-activated mini-blinds.

What began with one class has expanded to several. Day classes are in the Spring. Evening classes are scheduled in the Fall (enrollment underway) and the reviews suggest Professor Daley's classes are popular.

Bio: Sean M. Daley, Ph.D., M.A. Professor, Anthropology Director, Center for American Indian Studies Associate Director, American Indian Health Research and Education Alliance Johnson County Community College.

Sean currently teaches "Anthropology of the Paranormal and Supernatural,” “Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Ghosts and Hauntings,” “Demons and Demonology in the Roman Catholic Tradition,” and “The Anthropology of Religion.”

Haunted sites visited include the Sallie House in Atchison, Kansas, Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City and Glore Psychiatric Hospital and Museum in St. Joseph.

Sean says he doesn't really remember the exact trigger for his interest in the Paranormal but the interest has grown. More info about his class activities in the JCCC Campus Ledger. He has also accompanied an Exorcist - and that's another topic entirely. Don't expect to find a listing.  Contacts are made through select sources, eliminating the tire-kickers.
Regarding Ghost hunting at the Sallie House. Listen to Astonishing Legends Episode 123. Note: The Sallie House is not for the faint of heart. Extremely active. About the Sallie House.

Continuing and forwarding to Episode 126. Professor Daley talks about investigation results at the house and provides evidence his teams have gathered. In this example, captured on video, students are seated in a circle around several objects when two of the objects move.

Living in a haunted house can be exhausting. Clearing the space helps quiet it down but there can be peaks and valleys in the activity. My current house is not haunted but - I do have occasional visitors who might be lost, have opted to take a detour or need assistance. Each encounter is unique.

Example: Image included here. I thought the roll of film had been used up. After the images were developed, there was one I couldn't explain. It correlated with paranormal events happening at that time.

Ghost Watch  unexplained

Confession - I got chills when I first discovered it. 

No class course? Ghost touring on your own? Weston, Missouri - just across the river from Atchison, has an abundance of accessible haunted retail sites. That's one of the reasons I participate in the annual Dining with Ghosts Tour. Info.

A recent group of tourists ventured over after a trip to Atchison, disappointed, no ghosts. They entered the store joking and making light of the fact any place could be  haunted.

Ghosts at Main Street Galleria obliged with a twofer: an appearance, rushing past a woman in the hallway and then tugging at the hair of that same woman after she went downstairs.

She ran out of the store, refused to come back in, and stood outside to wait for her friends. - As per Verna Kowertz. Owner of Main Street Galleria 

If a Weston overnight is on the agenda, try the Hatchery B&B or the Benner House (now operated as part of the Saint George). Each has documented ghost sightings and encounters. Day trips should include the Weston Café, Weston Bend Candle Company and Main Street Galleria. With prior arrangement, there might also be an opportunity for an on site investigation.

You don't have to believe in Ghosts to experience one. They exist. Whether you believe after an experience? That is entirely up to you.

Thank you for listening!

Channeled - Ascension: Realizing a path

Broadcast light emits a frequency. Listen, ground your awareness  – and heal. ~ Talking to Nightlights

--- Beautiful Dreamer - awaken unto thee, the Atman in all-and-one - in being. All that is required is to acknowledge the Dream and know all is as it should be. When there is no resistance to the present one can truly fly – and not off cliffs – as it were but to heights of knowing and being and truly one with all things and non-things. One knows his true destiny when all are accepted at face value for being worthy – no matter how out of fashion or out of the norm.

In each and every being is a spark of soul united and that spark desires connection even when it cries out in pain that the world or the reality is revolting and all in it are heretics. Each and every soul then must realize that it is not the being in the individual that is crying – rather that is the voice of the collective heart saying – you can do more. Why do you wait for a crisis?

--- Allow that all is not what it seems and healing is just as – if not more – effective when done on the higher planes.

Now ‘put that in your pipe and smoke it’ [altered states] are simply a tangential or independent perspective and do not always give you applicable resolutions or analogies as when in that state one deals with a whole new set of variables.

What is that state? How does one reconcile the unknown? Why does one assume the rules of the game are the same? How far are you willing to go down the ‘rabbit hole’ – as there is indeed a point of no return. You are actually exploring an entirely new and unrelated realm with each and every transition.

--- But that is the challenge. It can be relevant to the present form, if/when, one aspires to greater awareness and begins to work and to identify/inhabit/transmit/translate code in symbols and non-form. Are you confident you can identify the door back to your own planet – space – plane?

What gives you the right to determine who is in charge and how the world should be organized? Too many chiefs and not enough psychologists. This world has much to be desired. And that is meant to be read in multiple ways.

--- Who are your allies? Have you determined your abilities and your weakness enough to recognize when the direction has been faulty? All is as it should be and every living breath is an opportunity to share that space through the millennia that all who have come before and will come after know as Earth Reality.

As such when you transcend – do remember for each and every ONE who breathes here there is – as they transcend - all the numbers you can count and beyond - a reality to shift into.

You will not know the whole here as it serves that greater awareness to learn with no further awareness so that learning will be completed in the form of not knowing and that goal [when accomplished] speaks to the evolution of a far greater being than that which can be confined in a material form. Aloha!

Again – we say Awaken Beautiful Dreamer and be that which you seek as you have always been [without knowing] the one calling the shots. The Dreamer is at HOME.


Thank you for remembering.

Shows are daily at 9 pm central time

Conscious Living with Wendy Garrett is produced by Empower Radio and featured on empoweradio, iheart, itunes, stitcher and various independent youtube channels. Programs cover a wide range of Mind-Body-Spirit/Alternative Awareness/PSI topics, including: Consciousness, UFO, Metaphysics, Paranormal and Energy Medicine.

Ongoing personal experiences with extraordinary and unexplained seen/unseen phenomena underscore my belief in a world abundant with wonders we haven't yet begun to fathom.

Experiencers, via their unique encounters, give us glimpses and clues to what potentials creation has yet to reveal when we are willing to listen to the call of the muse and curious enough to table our fear and explore the unknown inner and outer limits of being.

And the answers are there, teasing us in quirks, quarks and fantastic anomalies.

My proof
- and that is the whole point of this reality thing being very personal and unique to the individual experiencer - the light beside me goes off for a moment and then comes on again as I am composing this introduction, underscoring the "quirk" factor and the representation of the ever-present, unseen support in this adventure.

Thank you for your interest and for listening. I hope you enjoy the shows! - wendy ... and the nightlights ;)
