Fact masquerading as fiction, Looking Through Eyes of Love comes from first time author Judy Carroll, and is an exploration of the extraterrestrial contact issue from a unique perspective – that of the ETs themselves. Judy Carroll has been in contact with her extraterrestrial ‘Grey’ teachers from a young age, receiving lessons, guidance and spiritual teachings from them. Eyes of Love is Carroll’s way of presenting the things she has learned in this time, in the guise of a fictional tale about a young girl, Ali, who is a ‘Grey’ reincarnated into the body of an Australian woman, placed here on Earth to help humankind in their development.
Beginning with a UFO crash in the desert, Eyes of Love takes us from the totally alien, to the human, to the alien-disguised-as-human. As the subject of the story, Ali, learns her true origins and purpose in life, cosmic lessons are taught along the way so that the reader learns these lessons at the same time that Ali does. Through lessons on board an ET ‘disc’ we learn about Grey history, social structure, physicality and psychology. We are taught such things as how the Greys are able to manipulate frequency and vibration, the ‘Human Ladder’ of evolution, cosmic awareness, and our own unknown origins. Deeper concepts such as death, reincarnation, spiritual evolution and astral travel are all explored. Carroll even takes the daring step of introducing, as Ali’s brother, a Catholic priest, who provides an interesting and open minded collision between our accepted religious dogma and the true nature of the universe.
Questions are asked, and answered, in the course of the book. What is the Greys’ true purpose, their origin, the goals driving the abduction phenomenon? How are abductions carried out, what are implants, and the so-called ‘hybridisation project’? It is explained that a physical adjustment of human DNA is ongoing, as is the development of the energy system of the body, and physical versus soul evolution is also explored at patient length.
Further, more Earthly phenomena are introduced, such as the Reiki, Eastern versus Western philosophy, orthodox religion, and the part that the ET presence may have played in our history. The lessons that Ali and her brother learn are the lessons that we also need to learn, and the author takes great pains to teach us also that the Greys are not the robotic, unemotional and soulless creatures they have so far been portrayed as.
What is unique and refreshing throughout Eyes of Love is the constant humour and playfulness. It is a serious matter Carroll is presenting, but it is kept light-hearted and, thanks to the author’s unexpected sense of humour, the funny and ‘human’ side is seen in almost every situation. Giving the Greys a serious sense of humour is certainly confronting to the UFO researcher, as it goes against everything said so far about our unseen visitors and their activities on this planet. Perhaps this is an effort to humanise the ‘Greys’ and reduce the distance between our species, and they are depicted as quite human in their thought processes and behaviours. This is initially disconcerting to the reader – ETs are surely not so human… are they? Carroll maintains that they are, and in this sense she could best be described as an unofficial ambassador for the Grey species on our planet.
Carroll has chosen this avenue because, as she says in the forward to the novel, the human race is not yet ready to know all there is about the ET Contact phenomenon. It may be that we will never be quite ready for reality, but readers of Eyes of Love will at least have a more open-minded, and far less fearful, approach to the prospect.
