Unarius Interview on Coast to Coast AM

Ernest Norman

A few months ago the Academy was contacted by Coast to Coast AM requesting an interview with Ernest Norman, cofounder of Unarius and author of the core texts. Of course, the producer didn’t realize that Ernest Norman made his transition to the spiritual worlds in 1971. So we suggested David Reynolds could speak on behalf of Unarius, keeping in mind that David had been Unarius’ representative on George Noory’s cosmic science panel at the LA Conscious Life Expo for the past couple of years. Then just a week before the interview was to take place on September 18, David received a call from the Coast to Coast producer inviting him to speak about Ernest Norman and his book The Truth About Mars. What an awesome Truth About Marsopportunity to spread the light, love, and truth! Coast to Coast AM is heard on nearly 570 radio stations in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Guam, and all interviews are live streamed and archived on their website.

Having heard interviews over the years that frequently covered topics related to UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence, past lives, and other metaphysical subjects, David had always thought Unarius should be a guest on this program: “We have a lot to offer which would appeal to many of their listeners.” And when it finally happened, David related: “Thank the Infinite, for the time finally arrived; the proper cycle had swung in. With help from my fellow Unariuns all was in readiness for the interview. The focus was to be on The Truth About Mars book, but my inner feeling was that the interview would expand from that single subject.

“George Noory was a very interested and generous host and allowed me to have the first two hours of the four-hour show. For me it was such an exhilarating experience and quite effortless; I could tell Uriel was right there, in spirit, helping to inspire the conversation! We have received a lot of positive responses from listeners as well as many orders for the book. I’m so very appreciative of the Infinite giving me this chance to advance Unarius and my progressive evolution another step forward!”

Actually, we have received almost 120 orders and a few keep coming in every day, after the initial overwhelming response! Many of course have been for the Mars book, but people have taken the time to browse through Unarius’ online store and have ordered other books, CDs, DVDs, starship emblem pins, and more. Unarius has also gotten many phone calls from people requesting information be sent to them. Two calls were from eighty-six-year old individuals (they both happened to be the same age) who have been long-time students of Unarius and were pleasantly surprised to hear the interview on the radio. One had been out of contact with Unarius since 2001 and the other, a fellow named Frank Landis, said he had been a charter member of Unarius since 1974 and hadn’t called the center to talk for a couple of years.

Here is a sampling of other listeners’ comments: “You know the truth when you hear it.” (This fellow had been studying other metaphysical writings for many years.)

“This is what I have been searching for. I wish I had found Unarius thirty years ago when I first became a truth seeker.”

Then there was the conversation with a blind woman named Lynell who had heard the interview and was so excited about getting the book that she called the very next day, before heading to the hospital for an operation. She was going to have a person at the “Lighthouse” read the whole book to her and then record it so she could listen to the recording in the future. Lynell was not born blind but became visually impaired six years ago, and she is determined to see again. When she found out that Unarius teaches how to heal oneself, she was excited to hear that. She knows “we are not this physical body” and has been searching for the connection to begin the healing process.

We received several emails from Elana in Florida who was also thrilled to learn about Unarius: “I heard about your center through George Noory’s radio show. I was sound asleep but was awakened by my bike light which suddenly came on. This bike light is broken; yet, it started working and awakened me just at the time Mr. Noory was interviewing a man who shared about your organization. I have interlibrary loaned some books and intend to study everything that your center teaches. I know that these teachings are going to help heal me in a way that I never anticipated.”

If you missed hearing the interview or want to hear it again and have access to the Internet, you can listen to the podcast. You’ll need to become a Coast to Coast Insider, but you can sign up for the monthly rate (only $6.95 ) and then cancel before the next auto payment, if Unarius’ interview is the only one you want to hear.

Unarius Artwork in AVAM Exhibition

Friday, September 12th, 2014

TVE Preview Party Flyer - emailUnariun artists Kevin Kennedy and Paula Rich-Greenwood will be traveling to Baltimore, Maryland at the end of September to represent Unarius at the media and opening previews of The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster at the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM). Unarius artwork and more will be featured in this exhibition that opens October 4 and will run through August 30, 2015. The AVAM is the first nationally recognized museum dedicated to visionary, self-taught art, so Unarius’ inspirational artwork is a perfect fit! Guest curator Jodi Wille and AVAM founder and director Rebecca Alban Hoffberger have “assembled a diverse and wildly transcendent collection of artists, scientists, philosophers, and spiritual pioneers who have ventured straight to the source of inspiration itself.” Read more about this exhibition on AVAM’s website.

Jodie Wille visited the center last February to photograph paintings by Unariun artists and several of Uriel’s costumes to be considered for the exhibition. We were thrilled that four paintings (see below) and the Peacock Princess of Atlantis cape were selected. Additionally, photographs of the Cosmic Generator, the Unarius Space Cad, and Unariuns dressed in costume for an event held in 1979 (see below) at the center were chosen to showcase inspirational works. The museum director was so impressed by the Cosmic Generator that it is not only featured on the AVAM website, but also on the exhibition program cover! Jodie being a filmmaker herself (The Source Family, 2012) wanted to make sure museum visitors were introduced to Unarius films and videos, another form of creative expression. So visitors will be able to watch footage from The Arrival, combined with footage of Uriel speaking on creativity and the true source of inspiration, in the Unarius exhibit area. This video can be viewed on Unarius’ YouTube channel.

The Peacock Princess of Atlantis cape was created by a Unarius seamstress in the early 80s for Uriel to wear during filming. According to a short article in the Pictorial Tour book, the cape originally had 800 peacock feather eyes glued on it. But after so many years, the peacock feathers were deteriorating and falling off. Unariun artist and seamstress Billie McIntyre removed all the old feathers and 740 new peacock eyes were individually glued on. The art shipping company workers that picked up Unarius’ exhibition items three weeks ago handled the cape with great care, hanging it in their van and then

covering it with plastic. They said a special container would be created for the cape at their warehouse in San Diego, and the paintings would be crated in preparation for transport by truck to the museum in Baltimore.

Museum staff notified us last week that the shipping company did an excellent packing job and everything had arrived safely. As stated in their email: “We are very excited to be working with this fascinating collection!”

How fantastic that thousands of people will be able to learn about Unarius through the exhibition—the museum has over 100,000 visitors a year!

Importance of Studying

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

The Academy received an email from home-study student Nicholas Sauer about studying the Unarius texts and how it was helping him. His email was right in synch with a letter on the importance of studying,  from the  Unarius archives, that was read in a class session shortly afterward.

Here is what Nicholas had to say: I’ve had some interesting personal experiences in regard to my studies of Unarius. There was a period where I was devoting almost every hour of my day to studying, especially in the morning and at night. I was very happy, feeling more loving toward all the people around me, more friendly and aware. I felt like the Brothers were always only a thought away and I often thought of them as friends and helpers that were working with me rather than “holier-than-thou” type entities. Everything was going smoothly, but slowly my focus shifted from studying every chance I had to just every now and then, maybe a half hour here and there during the day just to tune in and feel good about myself. I had a very subconscious thought that with five years of being a student and absorbing knowledge from the books, I should be able to do without studying and simply tune within and I would still find life beautiful as before.

However, I saw that my life had changed in a very subtle way, that I avoided people and my thoughts were more negative and chaotic. I let this all happen for about a week, until I noticed what the real change within my life was; that I was giving the outside, reactionary world more reality and importance than my studies of Unarius and the inner worlds. Now I’ve gotten back to setting my alarm clock early so I can study in the mornings, which has become the most important part of my day to study, and using this month period to analyze myself, I can see just how important studying Unarius has become to me! It really has become the rock of my life because my happiness just doesn’t compare when I’m not studying! I’ve been able to work through the hardest tribulations of my life because of having Unarius, and this last month has only recrystallized my dedication to understanding Unarius and the Infinite, and to dedicate myself completely.

I’m sure the rest of the Unarius students have had these same experiences, the conflict between the inner realms that we contact while studying and the reactionary world that we are inherently a part of just by being alive. It’s amazing how high we lift our consciousness in our studies, and how fast we can dissipate that elevation by changing the channel!

The letter that was read in class was written by Ruth Norman (envelop was dated 11-29-71), and its purpose, as stated at the beginning of the letter, was “to help individuals who have, at some time during the past few years, made contact with Unarius . . . especially in instances where the student has become somewhat lax in his efforts to carry on with his study, or that his interests may have waned, we wish to try to help renew or restimulate his inner desire or urge for spiritual wisdom, so you may carry on in your self-mastery program, to again become actively engaged in your individual, regenerative progressive evolution—the way to a better future.”

The letter goes on to make some strong points: “There is only one reason why the student does not experience changes, help, and a new way of life, and one reason only: LACK OF STUDY. No sincere student can remain steadfast in his efforts to conceive the Science, without experiencing results—results of an infinite variety. This little missive to you is simply to prompt your interest, to try to encourage you who have at one time heard this ‘call’ to prepare yourself: preparation for your own future years and lives, both here and on other distant planets. Our urge is that you may again begin your unfoldment process—your spiritual awakening!

“This material world has served a purpose for you, yea, many hundreds of years and lifetimes, but the fact that you have been touched on the shoulder, so to speak, to begin your climb upward in wisdom does go to prove that you are one of those certain numbers who can, at this time, begin to prepare yourself for life on higher worlds. . . . Your return to your study, your contact with us here, again, will make this help possible; for help must be always given in proportion to the individual’s own efforts. Otherwise, life’s purpose would be defeated; evolution would be meaningless. . . .

“The Unarius Science is indeed unique to any other teaching which you have ever, or will ever encounter; for it was written not from the conscious mind of an earthman, but is actually a creation of the very Infinite Mind of Creative Intelligence. Thus, these principles can be impinged within your own psychic anatomy to actually change its existing vibrating rate. Moreover, your times of attunement or study create an alignment with the Minds on the Higher Worlds and with we Channels, here, who can and do work with you continuously. All that is asked on your part is that you REMAIN STEADFAST TO YOUR STUDY—how little a price to pay for the great benefits received! A better investment is simply nonexistent, at any price; for to understand, to conceive the principles of Unarius is a better life, here and hereafter.”
