In an interview with “Waking Universe,” Anka recalled in 1973, of having a "close encounter of the first kind" with a Black triangular UFO; in which he later formed a telepathic relationship through recurring meditation; "I had close-range, broad-daylight sightings of UFOs with witnesses present both times. At each sighting we saw a dark metallic, triangular craft about 30 feet on each side. There were three blue-white lights, one on each "point", and one orange-red light in the center. The craft in the first sighting was about 150 feet away; in the second sighting, only about 60 feet away." In 1983, Anka began to openly communicate, through channeling, with the extraterrestrial Bashar. He describes Bashar as existing in a parallel reality, a time frame that we perceive as the future. The monologues and dialogues with Bashar cover a wide range of topics, some including spirituality, planetary advancement, sacred geometry, metaphysics, and extraterrestrial life. Bashar has stated his reasons for contact in saying, "We are interacting with you to share certain perspectives that may give you an opportunity to see within yourself more of what it is you contain, to know more about yourselves, to allow us to reflect to you certain ideas you may already know but, perhaps as a civilization, have forgotten about." To assist humanity in recognizing its true nature and function, Bashar has also disclosed the following statement, referred to as The Four Laws of Creation:
The One is All and the All are One.
What you put out is what you get back.
Change is the only constant... Except for the first three laws.
Occasionally, Anka will act as a guest speaker in conferences related to issues such as extraterrestrial contact. Anka appeared in the 2008 documentary, "Tuning In" alongside other notable channels such as Lee Carroll.
More recently, Anka wrote and directed a fictional documentary about the afterlife called "Dearly Departed" through his production company, Zia Films. Anka is currently in production on a documentary called "First Contact," about channeling and extraterrestrial contact, based on his two UFO sightings.
