"No one knew this place existed; no one cared. To the world, it was just thousands of acres of long held, family wilderness. Rarely walked; rarely explored. Never documented. Everyone said the bizarre walls were property markers or Pioneer cattle enclosures. Everyone said the Chinese or Portuguese built them.  But they were simply repeating a rumor. Just like so many other mysterious, ancient places, one person speculated, then wrote something and everyone else blindly followed the leader like a bad game of a child’s version of telephone. When I went out, I saw something quite different. Something extremely old and familiar, something I recognized. Something that had nothing to do with farm animals or agriculture. Upon viewing the Lidar Maps, it was clear there were many 'hidden' and even buried walls and structures; thousands of acres of them.  Later, we'd find these mysterious and extremely ancient  man-made rock walls cross-crossed the entire North American continent.  And their true function remains a mystery to this day." --Alyssa Adisi Waya Alexandria

Spots of the Fawn is a look into Earth’s power spots; the term first coined by The Hopi and known to all indigenous peoples as power places. Places of immense energy we can measure with field instruments; places our ancestors deliberately chose to build their sacred places upon. But what happens within these places, a universal phenomenon all human beings are vulnerable to, leaves even science questioning the nature of reality.

It has been noted by global researchers that ancient people located these sites and harnessed, then altered and increased the natural energies observed within them. The reason for this is still "officially" unknown. Theories speculated upon are increased crop yields, fertility and consciousness altering concepts.  But it's clear to most researchers they understood and practiced the art of High Geomancing; manipulating the natural earth energies of the land for plant, animal and human benefits.

Within these very specific places one may enter an involuntary, and often unaware, altered state of consciousness capable of blurring the lines between everyday reality and what the ancient indigenous called “the other world.” In other words, much like plant medicines and other visionary substances containing DMT, the land doesn’t let go of you until it’s ready. Spots of the Fawn  not only awaken the power within; their power changes our perception of what's around us. They appear to make the "unseen" -- "seen." They’re built upon magnetic anomalies and are heavy in electromagnetics; things shown by science to induce altered states.  But what exactly is an altered state? Is it simply brain chemistry that creates visions?  Or is it a state that allows us to perceive what is normally hidden from us?  

This book centers on a power spot known as Severed Hand, an area the author studied for 8 years, scouting and identifying indigenous archaeology. It is here within this area of study, a prehistoric ceremonial landscape, she experiences chilling and seemingly very real events such as spirit phenomena, UFOs, sky creatures, light anomalies, cryptids, and ghosts of the ancestors; things all witnessed in what appeared to be “ordinary-everyday-reality” while mapping and photographing this extraordinary location for others.  

"It was stunning when I realized that perhaps this place was built for visions, journeying, questing; something I had done in a traditional manner, all my life."         Alyssa Adisi Waya Alexandria

Simply put, there are places on the earth that defy logic; places which unlock the mind and unleash the spirits. They’re known to the Indigenous of North America as Spots of the Fawn; places of immense power. Power that can be felt; power that can be measured with instruments.

Some are known, registered sacred sites, while others still sleep undiscovered or unidentified within our remote wildernesses. You can also find them untouched by man, existing in their wild state; as natural to our planet as mountains and valleys. You may be in one right now and not even know it.

They are composed of magnetic anomalies and heavy in telluric energy (electricity.) Built over underground streams and faults and Granite laden landscapes. They are mineral rich with copper, iron, gold or silver or all of the above.  All these things are conductive. They are places of great electromagnetic fluxuations.  

At a glance, there is nothing esoteric about these unique locations. But, what occurs in these places is a wildly different story. Within these places what you’ve been told is “unreal” is very, very “real,” according to our ancestors.

Just another face of the mysterious side of our world, Spots of the Fawn are both “natural” and “inexplicable” at the same time. The ancients claim these places connected many worlds; ours and that of the “others.” And that each “spot” holds an energetic doorway we might use to access them. Most stunning is these places appear to be constantly reaching out to us in a conscious manner. As if the “spots” themselves are a sovereign, divine entity or at the very least a conduit for one.  In other words, they respond to you; they answer your intentions whether those intentions are conscious or subconscious—positive or negative.

For this unique reason, ancient people chose to construct their sacred places upon them.  Within them they could reach incomparable states of altered and visionary consciousness. They could journey to other realms and realities while "altered." Just like today's sacred places have "altars" so does every sacred site; it is literally one great altar.  Altars are places  where you pray; when you pray you are "altering your consciousness." The first altars we know of, globally, were made of Granite. 

 

There is no trace of human habitation; no midden mounds or garbage pits. No points or arrow heads are to be found; no hunting took place here.  No one knows who built it; local tribes do not possess a living memory of it. It carries a North Western indigenous theme but of unknown origin. Within it we find prayer beds and spirit seats where people "cried for luck" or visions. We find burial cairns and capsules, defleshing sites and bone niches.  We find donation stones, story and teaching stones, and the legendary White Fire Stones; stones coated in solidified liquid quartz which were said to have fallen from the sky.  We find Medicine Mortars and Capstones. It's clear, this place was meant for the spirits and the ancestors and the dead. It's clear it was only occupied by Medicine People and those in spiritual training.

The journey to other-worlds via death or out of body spiritual questing remains a consistent theme through many cultures. As if our ancestors are testifying to the same exact experiences and motivations. They also testify that these places took us “some-where” else.

Severed Hand is prehistoric and it seems to thematically echo the US Eastern Mound Builder civilization. However, no direct connection has been established. Only, that a small pocket of Algonquin speaking people still inhabit the Klamath. The Algonquin Speakers are known to be found only in the East of the American continent. There is new and surprising research which discusses Algonquin speaking peoples originating in the west and traveling east.

Severed Hand was built by those who were said to be primitive yet somehow had knowledge of extremely advanced ideas and concepts. These people were not master builders of temples, such as Egypt, but they had somehow grasped the concepts of energetic principles and High Geomancy which echoes them.

You’ll find that many Spots of the Fawn have been re-named “Devil’s” this or that. When searching for a Spot of the Fawn, this might be your first clue; most “Devil’s” places are most likely Spots of the Fawn and usually tout reports of a paranormal nature. But, this is simply a misunderstanding and renaming by white settlers of an area which is beyond their understanding. I can assure you, our ancestors saw these places as the unique, valuable and powerfully endowed areas they are. Or, in Severed Hand’s case, they would never have expended the enormous amounts of precious calories and man power that it took to build the profound structures which are found within it. Nor, have maintained them simply for growing crops and running animals on rocky soil; no, there is more to the story, much more. 

Severed Hand is not a place that sustains anything, even on its best day. It is located in one of the most hostile areas of the valley and its rocky landscape is not conducive to forest farming or running animals safely in its highlands. This isolated area of study, among a much greater network spanning two states, is privately owned by multiple landowners and is vigorously posted with “keep out, violators will be prosecuted signs."  One must have permission to enter. The reason: it’s dangerous. Reason number two: Personal Injury Lawsuits. And most importantly, it is a treacherous landscape filled with a prolific abundance of rattle snakes. And yet, it is a place of steep sided, pyramidal shaped hills, parabolic in appearance, filled with stunning megalithic beauty. It is a place of deep underground streams locked within lava tubes where at certain points you can literally feel the vibration of water beneath your feet. It is a place of rugged Granite, Dolomite and Andesite outcroppings and vast boulder fields. But, what hits one first is: The intelligent design incorporated and mixed into all of this; the hundreds of miles of inexplicable rock walls built by someone for some unknown reason.

And there's another aspect to "Severed Hand Site." It is a direct reflection of the constellations  that wheel past over head; Cygnus, Scorpius and Orion. This is depicted in the man-made rock walls built in their likenesses.  The site is filled with serpent, hand, tongues of fire, bones of stone, and Condor imagery and its center piece is a hill resembling a human hand; its spindly fingers covered in spirit seats, donation stones (prayer stones) and the occasional burial niche.  Here on the Northwest portion of the American Continent, our indigenous ancestors built an ancient and epic site; the walls running for miles across two states as one network.

Andrew Collins, Greg Little (The Path of Souls) (The Cygnus Mystery) and William Romain (Shaman's of the Lost World) have all explored the concept of an indigenous North American people, now lost to living memory, who valued these constellations; Andrew Collins being the first "modern" to discuss the topic of "The Path of Souls," a North American Indigenous death journey,  in a public way.

Outside of the Severed Hand and Path of Souls ceremonial symbolism, these walls are as yet unexplained by the mainstream; an anomaly of epic mystery.

A special thanks to those "modern" researchers who have gone before.  

Freddy Silva, for his deep understanding of "power places." His book, "The Divine Principle," has been a profound influence on the study of sacred sites. You will hear his voice often woven within my own.

Graham Hancock, for his studies on altered states of consciousness; his book "Supernatural" has become a touchstone.  

The late John Burke; for his scientific studies (physics and agricultural sciences) on power places and their influences on crop yields. And to fellow author and researcher Kaj Halberg.

Andrew Collins and Greg Little, respectively, for their studies on North American  "Path of Souls" mythology depicted within the book "The Path of Souls."  And a heartfelt thanks to Andrew for his book "The Cygnus Mystery."

William F. Romain; for his published studies of anthropology, archaeology, and cognitive and religious aspects of ancient North American peoples. 

To Grandpa Den, who imbued me with a love and respect for the land, my own indigenous heritage, and all things spirit.

To Dustin Naef, author of "Mount Shasta's Forgotten History and Legends," for his life long friendship and support.

And to Tim MacSweeney, fellow researcher and friend, who continues to share his findings from the Northeast on the mysterious rock wall networks that span the continent. 

And to all the land holders and those minds with a greater understanding than my own, who so generously quickened a spectacular experience I will never forget; my heartfelt thanks. The multiple sites are privately held, therefore can never be shared physically with the general public.  It is for this reason my book "Spots of the Fawn" and this website have been created.

"I'm no stranger to vision questing and altered states, I’ve been doing it my whole life.  But within Severed Hand never did the lines blur like this.  I had no idea I was altered while working in Severed Hand and because of this, I questioned my sanity.  This is the surprising and profound difference between deliberate vision questing and being in a Spot of the Fawn. Questing you know you’re in an altered state—you can tell the difference between the material and non-material. You can voluntarily snap out of it.  In a spot of the fawn, you are experiencing the other world in "real time."  Not outside of time, not in a dream,  in ordinary reality. It is inescapable. And unless you know about Spots of the Fawn, many people are not prepared for what happens in them.  Because you cannot tell you are interfacing with an altered reality that appears to bleed into our own within these special places."  Alyssa Adisi Waya Alexandria 2016
