Douglas Taylor

Inside A Starship- (slide show lecture by Douglas Taylor) Douglas Taylor was a carpenter by trade and a surfer by choice, traveling around the world searching for the perfect wave for much of his youth. In 1978 on one of his surf trips to the Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico, he experienced an incredible psychic encounter inside a UFO and telepathically communicated with its extraterrestrial occupants! On his return from this trip profound changes took place in his life. In a series of hundreds of beautiful communications in visions and dreams with extraterrestrial and celestial beings over the next twenty years, he became inspired to start writing, painting, and teaching. Taylor’s visionary and UFO paintings are considered to be some of the best in the world, many of which are published in his incredible new book Soulic Journeys. In addition to national radio talk shows and interviews with film and television crews from around the world, he has taught hundreds of classes and workshops at the Learning Light Foundation in Anaheim, California.


Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Puerto Rico, exact location not given, in 1978, at night, the witness was lying down on his bed attempting to go to sleep when he began to feel an unusual spinning sensation. His whole body appeared to be vibrating. As his mind began to clear he became aware of standing inside what he assumed was a "spaceship," the surroundings were pulsating with a brilliant light. He felt a mental message and saw a group of seven beings standing directly in front of him, both male and female. Some stood around and others were manipulating some sort of control. One of the beings that was human in appearance and wore a pure white suit looked at the witness with the most intense and penetrating eyes he ever witnesses. A beautiful glow surrounded the beings and the witness felt a sense of peace emanating from them. The white-garbed beings, that seemed to be the leader communicated with the witness by using telepathy. He spoke of the energy used to propel their ship and of many other subjects including the cosmic mind and creation. Soon he found himself back on his bed with a clear memory of all that had transpired.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Douglas Taylor, International UFO Library Magazine Vol. 3 #4."
