    Hi Michael, Finding you this morning on Gaia with George Noory was beyond serendipity,,, being guided by spirit is more like it, whether it be ‘my’ spirit, ‘your’ spirit or spirit in general, this was a Divine action. Long story short, the night before I had come under attack by a friend who is strongly christian. It is the same old story, same old song and dance, I am NOT christian and she is very fearful for the salvation of my soul. My good nature saved the day and all turned out well, BUT I could see that in times like that how a situation could go awry as you say “it could get dangerous”. Well the whole thing bothered me and I nearly lost sleep over it,,, but next morning I turned on Gaia and discovered Mr. Michael JS Carter! You really helped me to put that predicament into perspective. Also I just want to say that I am tickled right down to my toes that I have found a highly enlightened mind that I can so resonate with. Thank you for putting it out there to a point where Ray Charles could see it! I’m off to Barnes&Nobes to pick up ALL your books,,, looking forward to sinking in for a good read. One more thing Michael, I’d very much love to attend a Unitarian Universalist church if only there were one close by,,, I live on the outskirts of Fayetteville NC if you by chance know of one please let me in on it. Thank you for so much ,,, Love&Peace, Ginger Rain*

  8. Hi Ginger Rain!
    Thanks so much for writing me. I wish I could help you with a church in your area (there all so very different) but try to Google a church in your area and see what happens. Yes, many times over zealous “Christians” are not just able to live and let live. Glad you handled it well.

  9. Thank you so much “Girl from Serres.” Peace to you.

    Good morning Reverend

    I am sorry to bother you but I think you will be able to help me. I am looking for a certain doctor Michael Carter, he has his own surgery and his number starts with +1 516 254 8073. May you please help trace him as I don’t know his location, only that he is in New York. He is originally from Spain
    I will be grateful for you help
    May God bless you

    I heard him on with Heather Wade last night….Fun pleasant guest…
    Sounds like 60s TV star Soupy Sales….
    The only insane thing I heard Michael say was he believed in the hollyhoax scam….
    I’m surprised that he wouldn’t look into the truth of that topic….

  15. KMR says:

    Hi, Saw you on Gaia. I do not speak out much, but am convinced we all should look inside our own hearts. Just a small pat on the back “your doing well, keep going”. Mary Ann

  21. Thank you Mary Ann and thanks so much for reaching out!

    hi Rev Michael,
    i wrote your church an email awhile ago wondering about listening to one or more of your sermons, but i still haven’t received a response. what church are you at now?
    also, i will be contacting you soon about anti-racism being that you’ve trained and are educated in it and about your book Alien Scriptures. i first found out about you from watching Ancient Aliens – a great program.
    have a great day!

  23. Cirano Silveira says:

    I’ve watched several documentaries where you comment on various subjects.
    I am directing you to read The Secret Doctrine, by Helena Petrovna Blavastsky.
    She describes in the volumes on Cosmogenese, Anthropogenese and other more subjects in 1888. These subjects which were only proven to only a few decades, things that at the time were ridiculed, for example: earth date of 4.32 bi years, date of the universe, how life on earth was formed, the date of the appearance of man.
    I know she takes the mystical side, but she was way beyond the time.
    It is worth proposing the subject for Discovery or the History Channel

  24. Thank you for the suggestion.


  25. Hi Lisa,
    Sorry it took a while for me to get back to you. I don’t check my site as often as I probably should. I am serving the UU Congregation of the Swanannoa Valley in Black Mountain, NC. The sermons are not on the site anymore but they used to be. You may contact me at
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    May The Force Be With You!

    Thank you so very much for giving us access to your articles. I’ve been watching you for years on Ancient Aliens and I’m thrilled to find out you do Reiki. I, too, work with energy through Tibetan Singing Bowls and find energy work so rewarding and successful through prayer.
    Your sermons I’ve read really find the heart of who listens and connects with our minds in ways that bring us closer to God and the Oneness that is All. Thank you so much and if I ever make it to NC, I hope to hear your sermon in person. Thank you also for encouraging people to see the world differently and our role in it. And thank you for showing people how we’ve been duped for years into being materialistic instead of spiritual beings.
    Your tone, your heart and your soul shine through all you do and brings us closer to Creator through peace, compassion, and pure love.
    May you live a long and beautiful life full of love, sharing and teaching and may all who hear your words let those words connect deeply and with profound meaning.

  27. Peace to you and yours. Thank you so much!

  28. You are very kind and I thank you so much.


  29. Same to you! Are you Cherokee?

  30. Candace J. says:

    It was a pleasure to watch you interview with Alexis Brooks today. I listened as I cleaned and cleared my altar. You mentioned something about “banned scriptures”. Can you guide me towards further reading on that subject matter. It would be greatly appreciated. When I learned about, long ago, missing books of the bible, I immediately asked “What do they NOT want us to know? ” I started down the Rabbit Hole long ago, and would like to revisit that journey. Any guidance would be appreciated. Also, do you lecture in NC? I’m in Charlotte.
    Thank you in advance.❤
