Ann Druffel's web-page - Resisting alien abduction (halfway down the page)
Appeal to spiritual personages. It works whether the witnesses are fully awake or if they are already paralyzed and in an altered state. The majority of FATE readers believe in some theological doctrine—-Christianity, Judaism, Islam, etc.—so the technique is presented here as a pragmatic resistance method rather than as a religious teaching. Witnesses don’t have to be fearless or have strong confidence to use this technique successfully.
What they do need is strong faith in a spiritual realm in which spiritual, protecting personages reside. A variety of spiritual personages have been appealed to, including Christ, Mohammed, guardian angels and spiritual guides.
The experience was shown to be able to be stopped or terminated by calling on the name and authority of JESUS CHRIST.
2. You unknowingly open a door to the realm of this experience. Some people unknowingly opened a door for the experience, by being involved in New Age or Occult activities. When you engage in the unknown things outside of GOD the Creator and His WORD you make yourself vulnerable to these entities. We have found this reason to be the most often found root cause.
FACT: A 1991 Roper poll estimated that 4 million people in the US may have had an "alien abduction" experience (2% of the population). This does not even take into account the number of abductees worldwide, which based on the Roper poll, could be estimated to be 129 million people. This is a number of pandemic proportions.
Christian research in this field has shown that these are spiritually dangerous false beliefs, which can open a spiritual door to the occult, resulting in having dark paranormal experiences. These experiences destroy people's lives and relationships with family and friends, and changes their worldview. It is very important for Christians to learn about this topic and get more involved in this field of ministry. The need is very great, as the belief that alien life is visiting humanity is steadily growing in popularity.
FACT: Modern documented reports of alien's activities and abilities parallel the abilities of (fallen) angels as seen in the Bible.
CONCLUSION: Deceptive spiritual entities are posing as modern day "aliens", bringing tormenting experiences into the lives of individuals, and offering a false gospel message, in opposition to the true message of Jesus Christ.

...or, there is something to the argument that aliens are in fact demonic apparitions.
if not that, Jesus, being God's only Son, is Lord of lords, and King of kings, and all of God's Creations are under His authority, since all in the universe was created by God, including advanced aliens.
but, humans beings no nothing of the universe to make a claim God doesn't exist.

It is a most fascinating subject for me! What is amazing is how my sleep paralysis episodes have completely changed in hand with my research on the subject. I have gone from hallucinating grays before ever hearing the term 'sleep paralysis' to seeing more occultist and shamanic-like imagery after hearing the explanation. This also leads me to believe that this is largely a psychological reflection as another poster suggested.
But, we're still skating thin ice when trying to explain these phenomena and distinguish them from physical close encounter abductions of wakeful subjects experiencing missing time while driving their automobiles. BIG difference from being asleep cozy in the bed, huh?
Edit: By the way..I do not think sleep paralysis easily explains many abduction cases. Just in case my posts gave off that attitude. Rather, the abductions described in the article sounded more like sleep paralysis episodes to me based on the "call God to rescue you" bit.edit on 19-4-2012 by NarcolepticBuddha because: Trying not to confuse people and be a jerk. Trying.
