In a recent interview on an Apple Fitness show called Time to Walk, actress Goldie Hawn, 77, said back in the 1960s she had an encounter with aliens that actually touched her. She described it as being touched by the finger of God, Fox News reports.

It is an interesting story and if true may have the hallmarks of an encounter with a fallen angel.

Hi, my name is Dean Smith and in this podcast, I want to compare famed Hollywood actress Goldie Hawn’s alleged encounter with an extraterrestrial with the prophet Daniel’s encounter with an angel, because there seems to be some similarities.

Hawn was in her 20s living in California and working as a dancer. She said during the ’60s, there were countless reports in the media of people seeing UFOs.

Hawn said that one evening she was sitting on a ledge outside her home and she looked up at the night sky and wondered about life on other planets.

She said:

“That was a time when, you know, there was a lot of UFO sightings. I remember this so clearly. I went outside my door, and I sat on the little ledge, and I looked up at the dark sky. And I saw all these stars. And all I could think of was, How far does this go? How little are we? Are we the only planet in the whole wide universe that has life on it?”

But it didn’t stop there. The actress then looked up to the night sky and spoke out loud to aliens.

“I know you’re out there, I know we’re not alone, and I would like to meet you one day,” Hawn recounted.

About three months later, that brief statement would be answered, and she would come in contact with two or three extraterrestrials while at a dancing job in West Covina, California.

During a break, she decided to lie down in her friend’s car, when she heard a high-pitched sound. Looking out, Hawn saw two or three silver aliens outside the vehicle that she described as having triangle-shaped heads.

She said they seemed to be pointing at her and talking amongst themselves about Hawn.

Terrified by what she was seeing, and not knowing if this was real or not, Hawn said she immediately tried to get out of the car, but said, she felt paralyzed and unable to move.

“I was paralyzed,” Hawn said. “And I thought, Oh, my God. I want to get up. I didn’t know if it was real or not real.”

Then the aliens touched her face.

“[The aliens] touched me, and it felt like the finger of God,” Hawn said. “It was the most benevolent, loving feeling. This was powerful. It was filled with light.”

This sounds strange, and maybe it wasn’t real, but it does have the hallmarks of having an encounter with a spiritual being or more specifically a fallen angel.

We know from the Bible that there are both godly angels and as well a group of fallen angels, which chose to follow Satan in their rebellion against God.

We read of that rebellion in Revelation 12 when the Archangel Michael drove Satan and a third of the angels out of heaven down to earth.

In the book of Corinthians, the Apostle Paul warns that the satanic angels appear to have the ability to masquerade or disguise themselves as an angel of light.

We read:

14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 11:14).

Notice how Paul specifically referred to this fallen angel as an ‘angel of light” which is similar to Hawn’s description of being filled with light after the encounter.

The Greek word translated as disguised in this verse speaks of Satan’s ability to appear as something he is not.

This leads to the obvious question if a demonic angel can disguise himself as an angel of light, can he also appear as something else, say an extraterrestrial.

The Bible also tells us that angels have a unique ability to impact humans with a touch or word.

We see an example of this in a dramatic encounter that the Prophet Daniel had with a godly angel while he and his friends were enjoying a day along the banks of the Tigris River while in captivity in Babylon.

This encounter is recorded in Daniel chapter 10.

When the angel first showed up in verse 8, the other men with Daniel fled in terror. Daniel would have undoubtedly joined them, but similar to Hawn, the angel’s appearance paralyzed Daniel causing him to fall to the ground.

Daniel described what happened this way:

Yet no strength was left in me, for my complexion turned to a deathly pallor, and I retained no strength. But I heard the sound of his words; and as soon as I heard the sound of his words, I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground.” (Daniel 10:8 NASV)

Over the next several verses, we read how the angel was able to impact Daniel by word and touch.

Anyone watching the weird things that happened to Daniel would not have associated it with the angelic activity unless they had a split-screen TV and saw what the angel was doing:

But we read:

  • Verse 9: The angel spoke and Daniel fell into a deep sleep.
  • Verse 10: The angel touched Daniel and he fell to his knees trembling.
  • Verse 15: The angel spoke again and Daniel fell flat on his face speechless.
  • Verse 16: The angel touched Daniel’s lips and the prophet was able to speak.
  • Verses 18 and 19: the angel not only touched Daniel but said the words “Peace,” “be strong,” “do not be afraid,” “take courage and be courageous!” and Daniel was instantaneously strengthened.

Now as we read both Hawn’s and Daniel’s accounts there is a second similarity.

Hawn described the extraterrestrial touch as powerful and similar to being touched by the finger of God, Daniel said he was instantly strengthened when he was touched by the angel.

So while Hawn described it as an encounter with an extraterrestrial being, Daniel attributed what happened to him to contact with an angel.

But there is one critical difference.

It is important for us to understand, that when a third of the angels fell and chose to follow Satan, these demons or evil spirits didn’t suddenly lose this ability to impact people through words and touch.

Though what happened to Daniel was the result of an encounter with a godly angel, demonic angels, even though they have fallen away from God, still retain this same ability to affect people from the spiritual realm.

And we see it on display in one of the most unusual visions recorded in the Bible.

Typically, visions found in the Bible allow us to see what is happening in the spiritual realm.

In 2 Kings 6, when Elisha’s unnamed servant was terrified when he saw that the Aramean army had surrounded their home, Elisha prayed for his servant’s eyes to be opened.

As soon as that happened, Elisha’s servant saw angelic beings, literally horses and chariots of fire, had surrounded them and were fighting on their behalf.

But the book of Zechariah provides a completely different vision as it shows how those of us living in the physical realm appear to those who are in the spiritual.

In this vision recorded in chapter 3, Zechariah saw Satan standing beside Joshua who was serving as the High Priest in Jerusalem at that time.

We read:

3 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. (Zechariah 3:1 NASV)

Joshua was serving as the High Priest at the Jewish temple in Jerusalem, and it appears he was performing some type of service.

Zechariah saw two things.

First, he saw Joshua standing before the Angel of the Lord and that Satan was standing at Joshua’s side sending a barrage of accusing and condemning words at Joshua.

As he was performing his service in the temple, Joshua would not have been aware of either the angel of the Lord standing in front of him or Satan, who was standing at his side uttering words of condemnation.

Secondly, Joshua would have been dressed in his elaborate High Priestly garb. That is how he would have appeared in the physical realm, but that is not how he appeared to those looking at him from the spiritual realm.

In verse 3, we are told that Joshua was wearing filthy garments.

The Hebrew word “soi” s – o – i  — translated filthy is literally the English word for poop.

Now Joshua would not have been wearing clothes covered in excrement while working in the temple. Nevertheless, this is how he appeared to those in the spiritual realm because Joshua was feeling the spiritual impact of the condemning and accusing words coming from Satan.

He would have not heard those satanic utterances, but he would have felt condemned, and how he felt is how he appeared in the spiritual realm.

Similar to Daniel’s encounter with the godly angel, the words that Satan was throwing at Joshua from the spiritual realm were having an impact.

But over the next several verses, we are told that the angel of the Lord rebuked Satan. God then ordered that Joshua’s filthy garments be removed, and new clothes be put on Joshua.

Again, Joshua would have been totally unaware of all this, but suddenly his spirit would have lifted as the accusations stopped, and new spiritual clothes were put on him.

This story demonstrates the ability of fallen angels to impact our daily lives if they so choose.

So while Goldie Hawn attributed what happened to her as being the result of an encounter with extraterrestrials, the Bible speaks of similar things happening through encounters with angels, both good and fallen ones.

What exactly did Goldie Hawn encounter in West Covina, California.

It may be another reminder for believers why we need to make sure we are wearing the full armor of God that Paul speaks about in Ephesians 6.
