Former nurse Kerrie-Ann Thornton, 37, says her first alleged encounter with an extraterrestrial took place when a dark figure suddenly appeared from the back seat of her car as she was driving on a Sydney highway. Ms Thornton now dedicates her life to serving "the greys", a "peaceful alien species” she claims to have a contract with. As a self professed psychic medium and telepathic communicator, she says she also has contact with other alleged "alien races" including the Draconians, Reptilians, Annunaki and Illuminati. Ms Thornton, from Harrington Park, is one of thousands of people around the world who believe in the existence of these so-called extraterrestrial creatures which she claims talk directly to her.
"My job and my business is to deliver messages for the ET's ... it's up to you what you do with those messages."
About 12 people, men and women, pay a $20 entry fee and file into the small function room to watch Ms Thornton become possessed by aliens and deliver messages to them on a sunny Sunday afternoon in March.
They meet in an old country-style motel, tucked behind a used car sales business in Campbelltown, on the outskirts of western Sydney.
"You are invited to ask questions about anything, the ET’s themselves, life, the universe, etc and the ET's will answer all questions," a pamphlet advertising the seminar reads.
She warns that "everyone will be running for the door" in the second half of her seminar when she becomes possessed or if the aliens decide to appear in the room.
"I'm told they’re going to put on a big show," she tells news.com.au.
"They’re calling it 'the Awakening'. They're going to make a statement."
"I won't remember the second half after it’s happened."
Guests are told there is nothing to fear and advised not to be alarmed if they "feel something touch (their) shoulder" or if the medium starts levitating.
"There are 30 plus ET’s in this room right now ... invisible," Ms Thornton says.
