At the base of Mt. Adams in Trout Lake Washington resides the ECETI Ranch, a place known in UFO circles as a hotspot for paranormal activity - a place to make "enlightened contact", as the ranch's founder, James Gilliland would say, with divine extra-terrestrial intelligences.

I've heard this all before of course, from a variety of gurus willing to share with you their Annunaki-insider information if you're devoted enough to download their ebook or subscribe to their YouTube channel. Skepticism aside, I decided to visit the ranch and see for myself if "contact" couldn't be made.


I honestly didn't expect much more than a bunch of hippies aiming laser pointers in the sky, oohing and ahhing at supposed "power ups" which were nothing more than iridium flares from passing satellites. Needless to say I was not disappointed by an over-enthusiastic James Gilliland and his audience of true believers looking for whatever passing salvation they could find in the night sky. Satellite after satellite traveling in a predictable straight path appeared overhead as expected. Nothing unusual to report.

But then something extraordinary happened - I saw something impossible, a real "power up", much like the phenomena recorded by Steven Greer and his trips to the Arizona desert. I saw three more before the night was over. I have no idea what a "power up" really is, but it sure as hell isn't something your 7th grade science teacher could explain. I don't know what NASA's budget is these days, but they need to fly some engineers to this ranch immediately for an extended stay, and have them research this phenomena in more detail. It's no joke, and you really should see it for yourself before passing judgement. 


Even though I still think enthusiasm gets the best of some of the SkyWatch participants, the power ups I witnessed were undoubtably genuine UFO experiences, the likes of which I have no explanation. 

The second evening started with a phenomena I haven't previously discussed, the "Anomalous Luminous Phenomena" that happens on Mt. Adams itself during the dusk hours, just before nightfall. Lights will crackle 13 miles in the distance, much like flares on a highway roadside flickering on and off. Skeptics say it's from hiker's headlamps and snowmobiles, though reports of these lights have been documented for over 100 years, and have left serious researcher and electrical engineer Dave Akers completely stumped on the subject. 

I don't know what these lights are, but I don't know of any hikers trying to summit a glacier EVER NIGHT FOR OVER 100 years at 2am with a headlamp capable of being seen thirteen miles away. It defies explanation. 

But that's not what really got me. Just before night hit, giant "swishes of light" wispped in front of the crowd. Many saw it, including a kid next to me who blurted out "look mom, it's the ocean swimming through the air". How poetic, and true. 

It was not ball lightning or swamp gas. It wasn't a problem with my eyes. Whatever it was - it took my breath away.


Perhaps the most unexpected event was waking up to a large mammal engaged in a yelling contest with the coyotes nearby. My spine literally shivered at the guttural vocalizations - it was a loud, aggressive whooping the coyotes deeply despised, and they responded with their own howls and screams.

Upon getting home from the ranch I did some brief research to see if that sound matched that of other local animals in the region - owls, other coyotes, ravens, bears, etc. It came back negative, aside from one creature that it matched with uncanny accuracy - at least according to audio recorded in the Sierra Nevadas during the 1970s.


I know it sounds crazy, but I believe I might've heard an actual Bigfoot. I speak about this experience and the other experiences I had at ECETI in more detail in this YouTube video. It's worth checking out if you have the time.


There were other notable moments I had on the ranch, speaking "Light Language" (something I've been doing since my Kundalini awakening 13 years ago) with a supposed native Peleidian speaker, doing my spontaneous mudra and chi work...etc. My buddy even recorded a video of the Peleidians communicating with Clyde Lewis via a black box session. All in all, if you want a chance at real "contact", I can't think of any place its more likely to happen than the ECETI Ranch.

Before you get all skeptical about it - I seriously suggest you just go to the ranch and see with all your senses for yourself. What I saw has left me profoundly changed. Yeah, there were people there that would probably believe anything you tell them, who are gullible, easily fooled by charlatans promising enlightenment and other escapes from reality. But mixed with their absurdities, their human frailties, was genuine contact with ETs. It was incredible. 

Our world is not what it seems, not what our masters tell us. I believe ECETI is somehow sitting on some kind of geomagnetic anomaly (perhaps this explains the Anomalous Luminous Phenomena) that distorts our space-time continuum enough for visitors to peek behind the veil a bit, to see into some dimensions just outside our own awareness. 

Don't believe it, well...visit the ranch and see for yourself. Close encounters don't come any closer than a trip to ECETI!
