Watching the sky
Crossing the bridge from Hood Canal into Washington, I felt a lifting of energy, a shift. Everything was brighter and sparkling. The trees seemed greener and more alive.
We were 20 miles from Trout Lake and ECETI Ranch, Enlightened Contact with Extraterrestrial Intelligence, founded by James Gilliland to study UFOs and other paranormal activity in the area around Mount Adams.
My primary purpose for making the trip was to meet Peter Maxwell Slattery, a UFOlogist from Australia who was visiting The Ranch. I had recently worked on three of his books, which he said were “channeled” through him by Shi-Ji, a light being from the star cluster Pleiades.
I went with no expectations regarding UFOs or alternate realities, but I was hopeful I would see something unusual during Skywatch Weekend.
It was quite cold the day we arrived, so we took long, hot showers. Afterward, I decided to sit alone in the shower room for a while and enjoy the warmth. Closing my eyes and falling into meditation, which for me is more like a clairvoyant trance, I had a vision of the large field in the center of The Ranch. This field is where the human visitors sit at night to watch the lights in the sky, and also the lights going in and out of Mount Adams.
In my vision, the entire field was filled with different colors and interdimensional beings or entities. They appeared to be having a party, a meeting. They were laughing and singing and dancing. In the center of the field, an elevator reached from the ground up into the sky as far as I could see. Everything appeared as scintillating light.
On the left, some beings were floating gently downward. Arriving at the party, they were greeted by those already in the field. On the right, others were floating upward.
According to my travel companion, the elevator is a portal, a point of intersection between our physical reality and other worlds.
This vision was magical and indescribable, although some might say the beings in my vision were coming and going to a mother ship. I had heard other visitors at ECETI talking about the enormous extraterrestrial ships that sometimes appear over the field, and also the other worlds and dimensions that connect to Earth in the ECETI field. Another way to explain this psychic phenomenon is that the UFOs and the beings who inhabit them are in the same space as we are, but in an alternate universe that vibrates at a higher frequency.
I cannot explain this experience, not even to myself, nor do I understand it. I merely accept it as a beautiful experience of a peaceful, loving, compassionate presence, a vision of a happy place.
The next day, I met Pete Slattery, who seemed to vibrate at a higher frequency, even higher than some of the great gurus and teachers I’ve met, but in a different way. Like most of the people I met at The Ranch, Pete was fully heart-centered and focused on service to humanity.
On Saturday night, I braved the cold and sat at the edge of the field for Skywatch with about 30 others. Pete and James Gilliland had laser pointers, and they would flash them up into the sky and shout, “There’s one! (Referring to a UFO.) And, “Wow, look at that one power up.” Everyone was cheering and laughing. I loved it.
My view of reality and the planet we live on was forever changed when Pete handed me his night-vision goggles to watch the sky. I could hardly believe how much was going on above me. I observed several bright lights cross the sky and then blink off abruptly. There were also brilliant lights going in and out through apparent openings on Mount Adams.
I feel profoundly changed by my experiences at the ECETI Ranch. I’m more centered in myself, and I’m hopeful for the future of humanity and planet Earth. It really did seem — at least for a few days — that we are not alone in our struggles and that unconditional love is available to all life forms in all worlds and dimensions.
