EPISODE 157

Being Willing to Change

Rev. Michael JS Carter

Minister/Former Actor/Author/Experiencer

June 17, 2023

Welcome back to Behind Greatness. Today we are speaking with Michael Carter who joins us from his home in North Carolina. Many listeners will know him from his frequent appearances over the years on the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens and on his appearance in Steven Spielberg’s TV documentary Diaries.

Today, Michael is an author and an ordained Interfaith reverend at a Unitarian church. He grew up in Baltimore and worked as an actor in NYC for nearly 30 years. While living in NYC, his life changed in a hurry after a visitation encounter in December of 1989. As he was reeling from an ontological shock trying to make sense of his experience, he met a stranger who recognized that he needed assistance.

We talk about his visitation experiences and his openness to the phenomenon. We learn about his fears and how confronting those fears helped him to become more intuitive and compassionate. We discuss how asking questions opens your capacity to bring in knowledge and checks your fears about the things you don’t understand. And as in his own personal case, he urges being emptied of your preconceived notions, before being filled. A fun and easy going conversation with a man unafraid.

A message of thanks to Dr. Bob Davis (ep 151).
