Sometimes things that seem completely unrelated and fantastical are actually deeply connected at the core and simply practical. There is a school of thought that believes human intelligence is non-local, that we receive wisdom like a radio tunes into various channels. Quantum physicists have observed non-local phenomena, and there is now even a Manifesto for Post Materialistic Science. The story of how I came to see the ways that these apparently unrelated topics of sacred sites, native wisdom, channelers, and extra dimensionals are intertwined is almost as interesting as the subject-matter itself.
Last August I got a phone call from a good friend, Steve Copeland, who is a filmmaker. I worked with Steve on various projects over the years but most notably his film, Shift of the Ages (which is now available to watch free online). The film and my connection with Steve have always been about supporting indigenous elders in sharing their prophecies through digital media. This time Steve was visiting Arizona with Reuben Langdon to shoot b-roll for their series called Interviews with Extra Dimensionals which airs on Gaia TV. They invited me to join them on the new moon to camp at a cliff dwelling in Sedona so on a whim I grabbed a sleeping back and headed over to meet them.
“When I finally understood that I am the creator of my reality I looked at all possible storylines that exist or that I could even imagine. The cosmic one that is unfolding now, making contact with our galactic families, is in my opinion the greatest story being told. ” — Reuben Langdon
While at the cave we set up cameras for time-lapse shots of the constellations moving across the sky and talked story until the wee hours of the morning. What became increasingly apparent as we swapped stories is that the concept of sacred sites, native wisdom, channelers, and extra dimensionals are actually completely entwined. We were in an ancient native cliff dwelling that is clearly a sacred site and it was easy to feel the presence of those ancestors who had once sat in this same spot singing, praying, and holding ceremony in ages past.
“The Great Pyramid is aligned with Machupicchu, the Nazca lines and Easter Island along a straight line around the center of the Earth, within a margin of error of less than one tenth of one degree of latitude. Other sites of ancient construction that are also within one tenth of one degree of this line include:
Perseopolis, the capital city of ancient Persia; Mohenjo Daro, the ancient capital city of the Indus Valley; and the lost city of Petra. The Ancient Sumarian city of Ur and the temples at Angkor Wat are within one degree of latitude of this line.”

Channelers: I have always kept the New Age ideas of spirituality at a distance because I have worked closely with many tribal people who have felt exploited or misrepresented by what they call “fake shamanism”. Though there is plenty of that especially in Sedona, there are also some very gifted healers bringing forward important information for our times. I was inspired by my time with Steve and Reuben so I got a subscriptions to Gaia TV and began watching some episodes of Interviews with Extra Dimensionals. A few weeks later I received a call from the team at Ascension One and Asil Toksal.
Asil Toksal and team were referred to me by a mutual friend and reached out for social media consultation. I only like to work with people that I feel aligned with so I spent some time researching their website and Facebook Page to learn about the work they are doing. I was impressed with their message and presentation but what really grabbed me was that Asil’s focus on doing channeling sessions at sacred sites. This resonated with me deeply especially because of my experience in the cliff dwelling with Steve and Reuben.
“Greetings. I am Raphael. Specific sites on this plane have always served humans as places of worship. The experience of divine forces and energy of this plane and other planes were accessible at these sites. Especially non-material existence found these places of worship, places of the congregation of energy lines, to be particularly relevant as a resource for power and energy. As a congregation and connection point between the material and non-material realms, these places have served as a meeting point between humans and the non-material existence. Even though intended to reach higher realms of consciousness, all non-material existence found itself to be attracted to places of worship similar to this.”

Native Wisdom: One of my Hopi Elder friends used to take me on hikes in the desert. He would tell me about how the land holds stories. He saw the rocks as living beings, he called them the Rock People and encouraged me to, “listen to what they had to say”. I always took this as metaphor but on a few occasions I watched him literally place his hands on a canyon wall, close his eyes, and tell me things that had happened in that place over the centuries. Was he channeling? Eventually if you explore long enough, you will begin to see that these ancient and modern practices begin to overlap and make sense.
I have been learning about these important issues since the age of 12 when I received the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle and its teachings. Our people have strived to protect Sacred Sites from the beginning of time. These places have been violated for centuries and have brought us to the predicament that we are in at the global level.

A Galactic Perspective: A common theme in Reuben and Asil’s work is this idea of energetic, planetary grids on this planet. There is a sense that there are portals between the physical and extra dimensional realms that are connected across time and space in some sort of network. Whether it is a modern channel like Asil Toksal or a traditional shaman, there is a global movement to activate these sites and the larger grid that connects them. Are there beings from other dimensions or different solar systems, or even non-physical information pouring into this realm from the cosmos? If there are any of the above it would make sense that there would be places where these energies are concentrated on the land that humans have visited and known about for millennia.
“Bring forth whatever you can, the places of worship, the places of divine connection that had been established before this opening. Once all of these sites are connected to each other, the network and the web of all these sites serve all of humanity.”
-Raphael, Channeled by Asil at The Cenacle, Place of the Last Supper
Suddenly these fantastical ideas begin to feel simply practical. If human emotions are electrical vibrations and our thoughts are wave frequencies, the land and the stars could very well be some sort of hard-drive that collects and emanates information. Just as some people have a gift for music, math, or painting, perhaps there are people who are sensitive enough to pick up on these subtle vibrations and frequencies. Sacred sites may be charged with powerful wisdom, or maybe even hold deep wounds that need to be healed in order for humanity to evolve. We are all influenced by our environment which may include the landscape, the air, water, and possibly even the unseen energetics of a place.
Similar to a human body, Earth can store energetic trauma in its own “energy body.” It might originate from war, conflict, environmental catastrophes— or even spiritual work done with the intent to serve a personal agenda. When Earth is perturbed in this way, it can cause irritation and dysfunction in the people who live in the vicinity of these sites. -Asil Toksal, Transmission
Our cell phones and internet are expressions of human creativity, perhaps they mirror energetic networks that have always existed. These things came from our dreams and maybe even emerged from our DNA as a reflection of our own divine nature. Intuition, psychic abilities, and non-local phenomena are now being taken seriously by even the most scientific thinkers. We are living in a time of transformation and awakening as we open our minds and hearts to infinite possibilities.
Check out Asil’s new book, Transmissions, and learn about his work at sacred sites. Tune in to Reuben’s Gaia Series, Interviews with Extra Dimensionals there are also a lot of other interesting programs on Gaia TV. Take some time to contemplate these perspectives and leave a comment below with your input. Most of all, make an effort to seek time at sacred sites with an open heart and an open mind to see what kinds of inspiration or healing might come through.
