Demi Lovato has been studying aliens. Don’t worry, she’s not going to Area 51. This is going somewhere, but it begins with aliens. Lovato was on the Wild Ride! with Steve-O podcast on April 30 discussing how she is spending her down time during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The conversation ultimately turned to shifting consciousness with meditation but it began with aliens.

“I just saw this movie called Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind,” Lovato said. “It’s a brand new documentary and it was just released in April. It was just released on Apple TV but it’s all about actually meditation. Technically it’s about aliens but they talk about how you can have a close encounter of the fifth kind which is contact with aliens.”

You may remember the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It turns out that movie stopped halfway!

“The first encounter would be like seeing a UFO,” Lovato said. “The second would be some kind of proof being left behind. The third encounter would be like you have some sort of interaction with the alien. The fourth is like you’re on board, you get abducted and then the fifth is human initiated contact with aliens. I sound nuts right now.”

Aliens lead to a shift in consciousness

Lovato doesn’t necessarily believe in aliens, but she believes our consciousness needs to be open to different ways of relating to the universe. She thinks the coronavirus crisis is bringing about such a shift so that documentary comes at just the right time.

“This documentary is talking about that shift of consciousness,” Lovato said. “It’s just also interesting that it was one of the top viewed movies on Apple TV, top most watched. I think this time right now is forcing a lot of people to look within themselves. That consciousness is totally shifting.”

Demi Lovato is shifting her own consciousness with meditation

Whether it’s aliens or one’s own private practice, Lovato recommends meditation. She is putting in a lot of hours during the quarantine.

“I’m doing a lot of meditating,” Lovato siad. “I swear, I haven’t meditated so much in my life. You find yourself, there’s literally nothing to do so you might as well do nothing. Sometimes I’ll do guided prayers. There’s an app on my phone that my church has. So I ‘ll do guided prayers. Other meditations will be like I do some Kundalini. Some is just breathing.”

And if you’re putting of meditation, Lovato says just do it. 

“I believe that meditation is hard work,” Lovato said. “That’s why so many people don’t want to do it. They use the excuse which is the excuse I used to use. I’m not goot at meditating. I’m too distracted. Well, duh, that’s the whole purpose. That’s why you’re supposed to meditate is to practice.”
