Most humans who have been contacted recall this not only in their subconscious but to some degree in their conscious. This cannot help but happen, as the two parts of your brain were designed to speak to each other, and constant leakage occurs. As our contacts are placed only in the subconscious, remembering a visitation is not like what an amnesiac recalls, when he allows a reconnection. There, the memory is already in the conscious, only disconnected, laying quiescent as a fragmented piece.
When a contactee remembers, these conscious memories are being built for the first time, so there is an escalation process that occurs. Whether while analyzing a dream, or day dreaming, or under hypnosis, the process is essentially the same. A fragment pops up in the conscious, connected firmly to the subconscious, but at first not connected to any other conscious memories. However, as the fragment will contain some clues to other parts of the conscious, building connections to the conscious begins. Wasn't that the borrowed robe worn that night spent at Cousin Joe's on a spontaneous overnight stay? Isn't that the childhood chum, whom one built a tree house with in the woods behind the school? Might the sharp bite of pain and temporary soreness remembered, as a tissue sample is taken from the back of the leg, relate to that odd scar that seemed to just appear one day?
By these means the building begins, and continues apace depending on the willingness to remember. If the contactee is frightened, or generally using the route of denial to deal with these issues, the recall is blocked. Remembering remains as disconnected fragments in the conscious, perhaps never to be accessed again. If, however, the contactee desires to remember, their curiosity greater than their fear and anxiety, building conscious memories picks up steam. Musing on matters, the contactee makes more and more connections, and his life as a contactee begins to take form. Sometimes reading about the experiences of others is a trigger, and where this is used by debunkers to claim that contactees are merely suggestible hysterics, this is in fact the method used thousands of times daily by teachers, therapists, self improvement gurus, politicians, trial lawyers, preachers, and children appealing to their parents. Don't you remember when ... imagine a situation where ... remember the last time you ...
Aware contactees, who have done their digging about in the subconscious and have built a solid base in their conscious almost always try to figure out ways to recall right after a visit. They notice certain correlations. The odd and untimely desire to take a solitary walk in the woods, the sense that something is different at this moment than just the moment before, or sometimes they realize they have just returned if their body jerks, or reacts in a startle response, for no reason. Contactees most often know well ahead of time about a pending visit, and their desire to be alone, in the woods or wherever, is due to their plan to sort this all out afterwards. They arrange a peaceful time for themselves. Going into a visit, the contactee is aware, telepathically, of the agenda. For instance, if all are going to discuss a project the contactee is working on, a problem there which the contactee has requested assistance on, the contactee might suddenly find himself musing about a solution he had not thought of before, and feeling less worried. This is a solid clue that a visit has occurred.
As we frequently use the paralyzed state to transport contactees, there is often a reaction to having this state lifted. The body reacts, sometimes by being too relaxed for, for instance, a standing position and thus suddenly adjusting the body musculature to support the stance, and sometimes reacting to the sudden stimulation with a startle reflex. This too is a solid clue that a visit has just occurred.
