To: Captain, First Class, and Mrs. Vladimir
Captain and Mrs. Geletin,
name is Pamela Chilton. I am the Director and President of a
teaching and research foundation that works with the mind. My
husband, Dr. Hugh Harmon, is the founder of this foundation.
My husband and I grieve with you on the tragic loss of your
son. We feel, also, the grief of the other sons of Russia that
do not know your beliefs, so forgive us if this letter is difficult
to believe or understand. In our work with the mind, we recognize
the mind is part of spirit. The mind is dependent on the brain
for speech, but does not need the brain or the body for mind
to mind communication. We also know that when a person dies
the spirit of that person can communicate mind to mind with
those left behind. We have communicated mind to mind with spirit
in our work and research, and we truly believe it is possible
and far more common than people realize. We also know that mind
to mind communication is symbolic thought form that the subconscious
mind can interpret into the language of the receiver.
write you because we think we have heard from your son since
his death. We don't know why he chose to communicate with us
or how he found us. Perhaps when my husband read of his death,
your son was drawn to his feelings of compassion, and recognizing
my husband’s mind to mind communication abilities, your son
came to him. We don't know, because I failed to ask him. My
husband wanted to write you of this experience. I was not so
sure, as I suspect it is difficult to believe. My husband felt
we should let you make that decision. I also realized, as a
mother myself, that I would want to hear this even if it was
difficult to believe.
night, in bed, my husband suddenly said, "I am so cold. I feel
so very cold, almost frozen." This is unusual as we are in summer
and even with air conditioning, my husband is usually too warm.
I put my arms around him to warm him up and his body felt warm,
but he kept saying, "It’s odd. I feel so cold. So, so cold.
As though I'm freezing." Finally he fell asleep.
morning we went into his office to find out what had happened
in the night to make him feel like he was freezing. My husband
is an extraordinary trance channel through whom spirits can
speak easily. Usually, I guide him into a trance state, but
to our surprise, as soon as my husband sat in the chair he started
to shiver. "I feel so heavy," he said. "I feel so cold and heavy."
He then began to talk. I did not record this as it happened
so quickly. I am writing this from memory so it is not exact
word for word.
I recall, this is what was said: "Ah, it is a young man that
is here. About 25 years old I think. He was on the Russian submarine.
He is a lieutenant. He is the son of the officer trying with
the others to save him and his ship mates. He is so sad." [
My husband began to weep, which surprised me.] Then he said:
"We were testing a missile. It is a new type, propelled by gas
until it is far enough away to be fired to the surface. Something
went wrong before it left the chambers. It exploded and blew
the midsection port side. [I think he said port side, there
were other nautical terms I didn't catch.] The ship began to
sink immediately. I was in the control room, [he didn't say
which control room] and water began flooding immediately through
the hatches. There was so much pressure. So cold. The air was
cold and the water freezing. I thought of my mother and called
out to her. After the senses of the body shut down, I was warm
for a moment, just before dying, but after death I was freezing
again. I felt terrified, to be out of my body and still suffering."
said to your son, "You do not have to be cold. You can go to
the Light and it is warm there." My husband added, "There will
be many there to welcome you with love. You will feel warm and
loved. Your son said, "That comforts me. I feel much better."
said, "Ah, I see an honor guard of spirits. They say they are
heroes of Russia. They are saying you are a hero, too. They
say they wish to accompany you to the Light." Your son said,
"I see them. And I already feel warm now. They are saying our
sacrifice was not for nothing. That because of this our country
will improve the equipment and preparedness of its armies and
navies and that this is good. It is a great good we have done.
Ah, I feel so much better. Yes, that feels so good. I am proud."
asked your son if he was the only one that had felt kind of
lost after death. He said, "No, many of the men are still hanging
around the submarine wondering what to do next. I didn't want
to stay because there was nothing more left to do there."
said to your son, "Take the honor guard with you and lead them
to your friends, so you may lead your friends to the Light.
You are to be very proud. You are only 25 years old and already
a leader of men."
son said, "Thank you, we go now, though I wish I could speak
with my mother and my father so they can hear me." I said he
would be taught how to do so in the Light and your son left.
have spoken with many spirits after their death and I know people
wonder why spirits are sometimes confused when they die and
don't know where to go. The reason is trauma brings emotional
upset which often confuses clear thinking, even after death.
Emotions are connected with the mind, which along with the spirit
survives the death of the body. When a spirit is close to the
earth - before ascending to the Light - the emotional mind is
active. A sudden death can be very confusing until the spirit
becomes clear headed enough to think where to go. Your son found
his way VERY quickly. He is an enlightened spirit.
When you have "unbidden" thoughts of your
son, those thoughts are most likely a mind to mind communication
from him. He is well now. And warm. He served honorably and
his death, and those of the men with him, are honored by those
in spirit as well as by those still in body. You are honored
yourselves by such a son. He lives. He is surrounded by love
and he is growing in his spirit and his mind. You will meet
again in spirit. We embrace you and your family and Russia in
your loss. May the peace of spirit be with us all.

sank in 2000 and all 118 crew died.
