Praying To UFOs? - Is CE-5 & Contact Work Praying To The UFO Phenomenon?
Is CE-5 and Contact Work Praying To UFOs? This is a question that comes up all the time regarding CE-5 that I think needs a somewhat detailed conversation and nuanced explanation. I hope people find this helpful and that it helps provide clarity to the very surface level accusation that CE-5 is "Praying to UFOs". There are some who have a genuine inquiry into this question which is understandable. However, some people use this terminology in a way to undermine, belittle, make into a thing of faith alone, or miscommunicate what CE-5 and Contact Work is and how it works. Enjoy!!!
