RA, Session No. 2, January 20,1981: “Place at the entity’s head a virgin chalice of water. Place to the center the book most closely aligned with the instrument’s mental distortions, which are allied most closely with the Law of One—that being the Bible that she touches most frequently. To the other side of the Bible, place a small amount of cense, or incense, in a virgin censer. To the rear of the book symbolizing One, opened to the Gospel of John, Chapter One, place a white candle.” (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
From the Introduction to The Ra Material: “When the session is over, Don waits a few moments for Carla to return to her usually quite stiff body; he calls her name a few times until she responds, helps her to sit up, rubs her neck a bit, and gives her the chalice full of water to drink after he and I have filled it as full of our love vibrations as we can.” (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)

RA, Session No. 69, August 29, 1981: “At this particular working there is some slight interference with the contact due to the hair of the instrument. We may suggest the combing of this antenna-like material into a more orderly configuration prior to the working.” (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
“We hook up three tape recorder microphones just below her chin so that we don’t miss any of the session if tape recorder one or two malfunctions, which has happened.” From the Introduction to The Ra Material. (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
RA, Session No. 2, January 20, 1981: “The proper alignment is with the head pointed 20 degrees north-by-northeast. This is the direction from which the newer or New Age distortions of love/light, which are less distorted, are emanating, and this instrument will find comfort therein.” (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
RA, Session No. 2, January 20, 1981: “The instrument would be strengthened by the wearing of a white robe. The instrument shall be covered and prone, the eyes covered.” (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
From the Introduction to The Ra Material: “We average about one session every week or ten days now, which allows us to prepare for each session with the greater degree of care that seems to be required as sessions accumulate. A great deal of thought goes into the questions which Don asks during each session.” (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
From the Introduction to The Ra Material: “Each of us contributes ideas, but the great bulk of the line of questioning is accomplished by Don, who is the questioner, since he has years of experience in investigating the UFO contactee phenomenon necessary to develop the intellectual foundation which is required in any attempt to fit the diverse pieces of this puzzle together.” (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
From the Introduction to The Ra Material: “After Don lights the candle and incense, he and I walk the Circle of One around Carla and repeat the words which begin each contact. At some point after that Carla departs her physical body and Ra then uses it to make the words which form the responses to Don’s questions. I meditate and send light to Carla for the duration of the session, only taking time out to flip the tapes over as they finish each side.” In this picture Carla is not channeling Ra but is singing “Amazing Grace” as per Ra’s instructions for the instrument to be constantly speaking if her eyes are covered during the picture-taking session. (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
This picture was taken immediately after Carla responded to her name and the eye-covering was removed from her face, somewhat mussing her hair. (Photo taken June 9, 1982.)
Photographs from the Ra Contact books
Before the session with Ra, Don aligns the appurtenances: Bible opened to the Gospel of John, Chapter 1, chalice, incense, and white candle.
Don checks his questions while Carla lies prone with microphones attached and eyes covered before beginning a session with Ra.
Don rubs Carla’s very sore and stiff shoulders after completing a session with Ra. The weariness, Ra said, was the equivalent of “many, many hours of harsh physical labor.”
Fearless Carla L. Rueckert. Though we operated as a group, Carla alone would face the risk of serving as the instrument and entering into trance. Ra said also that she took the “brunt” of the greeting.
Carla, her glow subdued by significant fatigue, sits beside the driveway of our house with our flower garden and kitchen windows behind her.

Carla dances in the leaves while Jim sits on the porch of our Lake Lanier house where we had session #106, our last conversation with Ra.

Calm, courageous, fearless, serene: Carla awaits the unknown.

Carla looks to the picture-taker before beginning a session with Ra. Jim’s chair in the background.
Carla with three microphones attached to record the session with Ra. Carla’s energy had an adverse effect upon electronics that necessitated three recorders.
Notebook full of questions for Ra in his lap, Don observes Carla singing “Amazing Grace” to be sure that she doesn’t go into trance while the pictures were being taken.
Jim begins visualizing light moving through the instrument. He will sustain this meditation with single-pointed attention throughout the entire session, breaking only to flip the cassettes.
