Nestled within the Mount Adams Wilderness north of the Columbia River Gorge in south-central Washington State, ECETI Ranch is a legendary UFO and ET contact hotspot. Reports of contact with intelligent beings from within the region predate Kenneth Arnold's 1947 sighting of flying saucers. Near death experiencer, contactee, UFO researcher and author James Gilliland joined Connie Willis in the first hour and a half to provide an update on the ranch and a mysterious cave near the site. Gilliland says that his family has a history of UFO contact, although he believes that anyone can initiate contact with aliens. The conditions are important he says, and "the more we do our inner work, the easier it is to contact these beings."
Over the July 4th weekend, Gilliland said that Mount Adams, which looms above the Ranch, seemed to have a cave or opening appear that wasn’t there before, and says that he has photos and videos of the cave as well, including footage of objects coming out of the mountain. He believes that there is actually more than one opening into the peak and that there is "a galactic airport" inside. He also claims that the interior hides a "crystal city" populated with legendary beings such as Lemurians and Atlanteans. As for those who have asked if drones or ground expeditions can go to look for these openings, he says that the area of activity is at least 17 miles away over treacherous wilderness. During the course of the interview Gilliand said that there was more activity on the mountain as he and others watched.
There are natural power places, composed of magnetic anomalies and heavy in electrical energy. In the last 90 minutes, author and energy expert Alyssa Adisi Waya Alexandria discussed how within these places, one can reach incomparable states of altered and visionary consciousness. Alexandria says she was raised in multiple Native American traditions which taught her that energies flow through the Earth and nature "like water," with the same waves, eddies and vortexes. She believes that the goal of a native medicine person is to recognize and direct these energies. The energies concentrated at sacred sites "are known to put you in an altered state" she added.
Alexandria spent eight years living alone in the Severed Hand Wilderness near Mount Shasta. She says that there are ancient manmade rock walls running through the area which "carry a subtle electric charge" that were apparently used to focus and direct energies from the Earth. She recalled witnessing a strange floating orb "about the size of a car" moving along one of these walls before disappearing into thin air. Alexandria noted with some astonishment that the object seemed to have a surface that looked exactly like an elephant’s skin. She also observed a glowing orb that moved over her home early one morning which looked like "a diamond in the sun." It appeared to go into the side of Mount Shasta. Because of her numerous visionary and strange experiences, she believes that any contact with nature spirits requires "a human consciousness, an altered state, and a "spot of the fawn" i.e. a place of natural magnetic and electrical energy.
