Dear Ones,

Here is a ghost story for you. I heard the story on the astral plane while walking in Serrano Valley, California. The boy was buried in a Mormon Cemetery at Homol’ovi State Park in Arizona, in an area of Native American hunting grounds.

There is an edited Summary after the video …

I feel there is not one word of truth in this. But I have to admit, it is a pretty good ghost story.

I was resting a minute ago under those trees over there … [shows a stand of oak trees] … and when I got up, I thought about the Mormon boy named Gad who died at a very young age out in … was it Utah, I think? … and how I had spoken to his spirit some years ago, and how he was waiting for his father and looking for his father. And he said his mom had gone off to the town because there was not enough water and she needed to go to the town. And then he passed on while his mom was looking for his mother, I guess … But I did not know that part; all I knew was that he was waiting for his dad, whom he really admired very much. And he was hoping to one day have a wife of his own; he was waiting for that day. [smiles]

Since I was speaking with spirits today, I thought maybe I could get in touch with Gad … even though, here I am in California, near the beach … in Serrano Valley … and there is Gad there at the graveyard, out on the Native American reservation … in Utah, I think it was.

So I called for Gad. What do you know, he answered! His accent is just very, very different from that of the people in this pioneer area here. And I asked him if he was still looking for his dad. He said, Yup! He was still waiting for him.

So I asked around, on the astral airs, whether there was anyone there that was the father of a boy named Gad. And a man answered. He said: Yes, yes I know Gad.

I said: Is that your son then?

And he said: Yes.

I said: Could you find him?

And within a minute or two they met up on the astral plane. They were so happy to see each other! It was incredible. And Gad’s father told him: I went to find your mother, but I could not find her.

Gad and his father were very happy to find each other again. And the boy said that he had died at the place where they had settled, but that the Indian braves … that is what he called them … had made a safe place for him there. I am glad they agreed to do that …

I heard the father and son off talking again just now. The young boy said: I said, ‘I think I need a drink of water’ … And then he said: That’s the last thing I said before I died. 

And then the father said: Here, son, let’s sit here and sing ‘Rock of Ages’ song. So I guess that is what they are doing now …

Well this is quite something; the father just said: Well there’s your mother! 

And I heard the mother say something like: Well, don’t you just know I’m your Rock of Ages woman? And then she said: Why didn’t you find me? I passed on of something that did not have birthday ingredients in it.

So I guess they are all three together now … the father, the mother, and the son named Gad (for a gadfly!) ..,

Now the story keeps on … The man said: What are your name? And he waited …

And I said: Alice Clagett.

And he said: This here are Clementine … meaning his wife.

And I said: And your name is …?

And he said: Jason. And this are Gad, the gadfly … [chuckles]

That is all for today, as far as pioneer stories are concerned …

This cloud reminds me just a little bit of Gad, and how happy he was to see his father, and then his mother …

You know this cloud now looks a little like the child on the right, crying out when it sees its mom … and on the left, the mom turning around, as if she is searching around and about to see her son there … on the left at the top, see, with flowing hair, and her arms out? …

Dear Ones,

OVERVIEW OF THE VIDEO

In this video I am channeling my Star Nations friend Mosteenya and doing my best with the old English ballad “Greensleeves.” There is a wayside marker about the Dominguez Escalante Expedition, and photos from the San Juan National Forest in Colorado and Homol’ovi State Park in Arizona.

There is a little about a conversation with a young sprite named Gad, who in the 19th century lived with his parents at Sunset, the Mormon settlement on the Little Colorado River (now within Homol’ovi State Park). Gad was only 9 years old when he passed on. On the astral plane, his sprite said his folks called him Gad because he was like a gadfly, but I think they might have had another reason as well, as he seemed such a gentle, good young man.

I could tell he loved his father very much, and could not understand why he had left him there. He did not know that the settlement was abandoned because of droughts and floods. He said he had had never seen so many babies die … I guess he was talking about the infants buried in the cemetery. I tried to help Gad on toward the Light, but I guess it was just not yet his time to turn to the Light.

I also spoke with the Hisat’sinom (the ‘long-ago people’) … the spirits of the Hopi ancestors … who guard that land. They were many. They could not understand why the Mormon settlement would move away and leave the remains of their own who had passed behind. I explained that Gad was just a child, and asked that they help his Spirit find rest, and they agreed. They are puzzled by our lack of understanding of these very basic things.

Let’s all say a little prayer for the sprites that have yet to turn to their Spirit guides and to the beautiful astral light. May that moment of joy come soon for each of them!

There is a lightly edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

I am in a national forest, and I think there are wild cattle around here. So I am not sure how long I am going to be able to continue like this …

I thought I would try channeling Mosteenya (from Lyra, once leader of the Galactic Council), who is a Star Elder and a friend of mine. But I am not so sure how well this is going to turn out. We will see …

Greensleeves, through Mosteenya

Alas, my love, you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously,
When I have loved thee so long,
Delighting in thy company.

Greensleeves was all my joy,
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my Lady Greensleeves.

Alas, my love, you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously,
When I have loved thee so long,
Delighting in thy company.

Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my only love,
And who but my Lady Greensleeves.

Gad, The Mormon Child
A Ghost Story by Alice B. Clagett, 7 September 2014

A few days ago I had a talk with a sprite named Gad at the Mormon Cemetery at Homol’ovi State Park in Arizona. He was confused and a little lost. He said he was 9 years old, and so many babies had died at the Mormon settlement there. He had never seen so many.

I explained he had also passed on. He was upset his father had left him there, and was not sure where he wanted to be. Maybe with Saint Joseph, he thought.

I gathered it is not his time to turn to the Light quite yet. My heart went out to him. What can I say? It is a time of some confusion in the fourth dimension right now. Let’s say a prayer of blessing for him and his family.
