These pages are records of trips taken on the search for the whole self, visiting the ancient Bristlecone forest.

This one tells about finding a path in the valley. Specifically, it is for a rite of passage for Leo Geary, on September 27, 1992. View this page with the main Chalfant Rite page

sounderSound mound. Looking southeast. This is the location of the cave. If you imagine walking around the mound to the right, step over the boulders. Looking at the mound, from there, you see the cave. It starts slightly above ground. I am there, too, keeping the healing energy and channeling guidance. I'll be glad to see you there. Behind us are the larger higher rocks, topped with footprints.

Now in rite for transition of spirit from the body, irradiates the rock of the Nume Valley cave. A blue heart is within. {Guided to do this artwork 9/26/97 as sit in virtual vigil--Caroling.}

Our task

Five years ago Leo Geary died. We have celebrated his passage in many ways, being free in mind. However, there is something we need to do then that we just learned of now.

We are going back to that time to perform a rite of passage for the transition of Leo's spirit from his body. Being free in time opens freedom of space. So we can consecrate his body in the cave made by our ancestors. We do not know their mindset, their methods, or their time. But we wish to know. We are open to guidance.

When Caroling learned of the task Thursday morning, 9/25/97, she immediately took virtual action. That is, on the relative date five years ago, Leo's body had been in the mortuary overnight, rest in peace. It was time to virtually move Leo's body to the cave of his choice.

Caroling has been sitting in virtual vigil, sealing the cave from the inappropriate and opening the cave to the helpful. She continues to be there until Saturday, late afternoon, PST, or until she feels the transition (of spirit from body) take place.

Elizabeth OMlulu is coming for the ceremony of the third day after death. On 9/27/97, Saturday, which relates to the day of her actual arrival in 1992. It is 3pm in NY and 12 noon in California. OMlulu spirit is strong, old, and has the inner knowledge needed to speak to Leo's spirit. Her purpose is to calm, define, and flux the transition. She knows what to do when the time comes, at the right time. It could actually be something that has already been done or will be done later, given freedom in time. Also, she follows guidance.

I should mention the Tibetan lama (priest) spirit that is here. Recently I watched the video tape of a PBS program about the Tibetan Book of the Dead, filmed in Tibet of people who use the book. It followed the transition of a man. In the end, a photo of the lama looked very much like a vision I had when Leo was cremated. I had seen a buffalo with rich dark brown fur, horns to grasp, and loving eyes to gaze into. However, the visual clues could have been of a lama in a darkened room. The ear flaps of the cap sweep back, curling upward like horns. The eyes are deep brown velvety with care and smile wrinkles. The space is charged with energy like the electricity of fur that wraps the lama. A lama like that is here for Leo's transition. That is, was there in 1992.

Our visions

Elizabeth wrote: My notes from the meditation: My spirit guide, Rosina, came to help and so did my goddess-self--all graceful and naked. We had to get naked, to be humble, had to strip down to the bones: become a skeleton to be in that space and then go back--or at the the same time be human because that represents where he came from. Provide the link.

How much is nature set by human intent?----Or some "being's" intent? Oh but aren't we all part of nature--can't nature have our feelings too? Are moods owned by humans alone? No, I think. Leo is sent off in a bullet form like a piston in a valve. He is weary getting to the send off and before he goes we wipe his brow. Now laying down, he opens his eyes: clear as day and looks out. Something bigger than him is looking out of his eyes and we go all different angles and see that it is the eye that just is. My old snake friend is here: now a lethal python, now a laughing cartoon--this is the snake in the dream I had years ago: 6 days before Leo, as I knew him, ceased to exist. Leo and I were not that close but I can still send peace to this transition.

Another thing: Rosina shows me something. Eula comes back in her whites: she reminds me that I have to clean out the evil. Someone gives me a little hand broom and I sweep the four corners and in the middle comes a pyramid of white shoots poofs of smoke to the four corners and a canopy blooms over-head, see-through, like gause. Underneath Rosina is showing me how to muster my strength to create white light which draws a circle in/on the ground and the ground falls way to fire--cleansing fire where Leo's earth-body goes. Leo's spirit is elusive and passes on so quickly, there is no conscious communication between my id and whatever he is becoming. I start to float somewhere but I choose to ground myself. Then something evil comes by but it poofs out--I am not scared. The four directions have been saluted.

Pale, fuscia ultraviolet, glowing all over, like scorpion, skeleton, ic chip, structure needing to form anew. Not sure of scale, if is molecular, inner organ, mental or what. Interesting fast-changing images. Cave shape very helpful. Purple, deep blue colors lining, helping. I see eliz like on the other side of a giant aquarium. See her through wavy water. Many biomechanical processes happening. Blue. Fuscia. I put up my hands as Eliz is doing, in sending-healing pose.

All of a sudden Leo wakes up. Knows what is happening. Has never been without use of arms and legs in extreme situations. Face in mummy hood of color. I think to blow these colors to him with breath. Saw bink of an awareness out of body. Alternating interest in me or Eliz and inner processes.

But later the huge amount of pulling to release self, extricate self. That is detach self from body. Like bubble gum stuck or prying. Very attached. Actually very uninterested in the corpse. Not identified. But not sure who it is. Really no attachments just thinks it is. We helped clear up any doubt about what to do. Action oriented. I got up from my bedroom and went to sit in EIE in lostNfound (the big model). Finally saw whirling energy to edge of cave, no room for me there. Like balls at end of strings, whirled from a center, but more complex.

I didn't get any feeling that it was over.
