Lyssa Royal is an internationally known author and channel. Her books, published in seven languages worldwide, include:

Lyssa has been using her channeling skills professionally since 1986. Her channelings, books and tapes deal with such subjects as our galactic heritage, extraterrestrial contact, frequencies of consciousness, ancient civilizations, and earth changes.

Lyssa was raised in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. While getting her BA. degree in Psychology, she developed an interest in hypnosis and learned to place herself in altered states of consciousness for the purpose of stress management.

She has been seen several times on national and international television, heard live on radio shows, and is a regular contributor to the magazines Connecting Link and The Sedona Journal of Emergence. Lyssa conducts extensive tours throughout Japan and Australia and continues to lead tour groups to ancient power spots such as the Yucatan, Guatemala, Egypt, Peru, Easter Island, and Greece.

Lyssa has also been appointed a coordinator for The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) in Arizona and conducts in-depth field research into CE-5s - human-initiated contact with extraterrestrial intelligence. In 1979, Lyssa and her family witnessed an extraordinary UFO sighting near their home in New Hampshire. This experience triggered an acute interest in extraterrestrial phenomena which propelled her into an in-depth study of the nature of extraterrestrial consciousness using her channeling and intuitive abilities.

This evening group channeling with Lyssa Royal will include time for questions from the audience. Lyssa will also present two workshops in the Grass Valley area: September 18 (Sat.) A one-day workshop called 'Preparing for Contact'. The idea of humans initiating the contact experience will be extensively explored. September 19 (Sun.) "Exploring Earth's Galactic Heritage". Based on Lyssa's 1989 classic book, The Prism of Lyra, this workshop will explore the reasons for the creation of Schoolhouse Earth, and who was involved in its creation.

(Editor's note: the following is excerpted from a recent article by Lyssa Royal, Preparing for Contact: Entering Species Adulthood.)

For thousands of years mankind has been looking up at the sky, imagining the wonders of the heavens. During that time, we've developed an extraterrestrial mythology filled with benevolent beings assisting humanity as well as Jealous "gods" vying for the worship and control of humans. But all through our past relationship with extraterrestrials, we've never allowed an equal relationship between us to form. In one way or another, the human race has played the role of victims to extraterrestrial contact.

With the development of the atomic bomb and other technological toys, humankind has entered a phase on the evolutionary scale where it could possibly destroy itself. Gone are the days wherein we were a child race. It is time to enter Species Adulthood.

Becoming an adult species has its challenges. Perhaps the biggest challenge is to act like an adult and seek out relationships with adult species from other worlds. Though it may be challenging, we must begin to implement a contact program as a responsible adult species that empowers the people on Earth to be planetary ambassadors.

Preparing for contact is a concept that we've never explored as a sentient species. We have no role models with which to guide us. At some point, we are going to need to stop theorizing and take action. Soon it will be time to go 'out in the field' and apply what we've learned.

A planetary species which feels powerless and victimized (whether by its own bureaucracy or by an external force) may wait for contact to be forced upon it and never take action. However, what extraterrestrial civilization would want to make contact with a powerless, frightened species?


The only ETs who would want to contact a planet filled with frightened souls would be those who want to take advantage of them by preying upon their fears. Unless we want to create that type of contact scenario, it is time to assert ourselves by reaching out, not from fear, but simply from curiosity and excitement. The ETs have made the first step. Have we?

Some would say that projects such as SETI and Voyager are our attempts at making contact. However, those projects were not joyously participated in by humanity; instead they were funded and implemented by governments and/or private organizations who may or may not speak for the People. Those projects, in a sense, speak the party line by assuming that an ET species will value science and technology (radio waves and space probes) over consciousness itself.


Did those contact programs speak for you?

Perhaps it is time to design a contact program of our own, based on our understanding of ETs, their reality, and the human consciousness. Already some visionary organizations like CSETI (founded by Dr. Steven Greer) have begun this immense task. But before a paradigm shift occurs, a large group of people must be willing to do whatever it takes to become planetary ambassadors ' even if that means releasing old safe belief systems and entering the world of the unknown in order to do so.

As we prepare for contact, there are several issues which need to be addressed before we can become an empowered planet of intergalactic ambassadors:


  1. Acknowledge the Inevitability of Contact

    It is time for the people of influence in our society to stop arguing whether ETs exist or whether or not a specific case study is real or hoaxed. Instead, we as a society can be better served by realizing contact is a high probability and prepare ourselves for the inevitable contact which occurs for any species entering adulthood.

  2. Discover Personal Truths

    The only truth that matters is the truth one finds within. This requires us to form a solid personal truth about the ET phenomenon which is not based on polarity-meaning that we don't simply categorize the ETs as being space brothers here to save us, or invaders here to conquer us. The truth lies somewhere in between, and becoming self-responsible individuals simply means putting aside our judgments, cultivating a personal truth about the importance of contact, and carrying out our responsibilities to initiate contact in a dignified and diplomatic way.

  3. Embrace Humanity

    Opening positive, diplomatic communications with extraterrestrials who may be quite alien to us will be impossible unless we first take responsibility for our planet and the people upon it. Unless we seek to become a People, it is unlikely that extraterrestrial will wish to open contact with a group of fragmented and aggressive adolescents. We must seek to create an atmosphere of family on Earth.

  4. Interspecies Communication

    We have several "alien" species here on Earth with which to practice our communication skills. It is unrealistic to think that contact with ETs will be achieved through the types of language and communication with which we are familiar. In the meantime, we can practice learning new methods of communication with the dolphins, whales, and the plant kingdom, for example. This will prepare us to enter the unfamiliar landscape of communication with alien races.

  5. Confront our Fears

    Until we confront our own inner and outer fears, we humans will continue to perceive ETs through the veil of our fears and thus distort their true reality. We must learn to come to peace with our own inner archetypes of dark and light, otherwise the ETs will simply become contemporary demons upon which we will project our fears.

  6. Decompartmentalize our Consciousness

    Right now the human consciousness is segmented into the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious minds. Many individuals who have had ET contact have stored memories of the contact deep within their subconscious or unconscious, in order to maintain the sense of a secure reality. We must be willing to integrate these levels and face our frightening memories. Many have already begun doing this through regressive hypnosis. Once the human consciousness begins integrating and healing, we will be perceived by ETs as whole beings instead of fragmented ones.

  7. Reclaim our Power

    For thousands of years influential people and organizations have been dictating what the consensus reality should be. The time of dependency upon 'authority' figures must now pass if we are to enter Species Adulthood. We must no longer wait for our government to reveal the ET bodies and crash debris it has before we believe solidly in the extraterrestrial presence. We must reclaim our power by beginning a contact program "For the People, By the People".


    We must begin educating a timid public on extraterrestrial issues, giving them responsible information. And most of all, we must stop the bickering and invalidation between researchers which only serves to divide and conquer the visionaries of the future.


    As we reclaim our power in this way, we become a global People ready to interact with our intergalactic neighbors.
