On October 6, 2009, my 20-year-old son Erik, took his own life. Since that sad and tragic day, an overwhelming sense of grief and despair propelled me into a search for answers. Answers that would provide me and others with comfort and hope. Some of those answers came from the many books I bought, but many came from an unexpected source: Erik himself. Read more.

Welcome New Visitors

Dear Reader, Although Erik sometimes paints a rosy picture of the afterlife, time and time again he stresses that suicide is not the answer to one’s problems. If you struggle, please understand that the information in my blog and my books is no substitute for professional help. Please click here for a list of resources...

All About Erik, Part Three

This morning, when I opened my computer, a pop up from my iCal app announced Erik’s upcoming 28th birthday tomorrow. It was like a punch to the gut. I hate those days when I think of what could have been. I should be baking him a birthday cake, lighting candles and singing (or trying to...

All About Erik, Part Two

First of all, don’t forget about Erik’s Hour of Enlightenment radio show TONIGHT at 5:00 PM PT/7:00 PM CT/8:00 PM ET. No more than 15 minutes before the top of the hour, call 619-639-4606 to ask Erik your question. There are three ways to listen: Listen on the phone line, click on the “Listen” icon on the right sidebar of the blog...

All About Erik, Part One

Ringo is almost fully recovered, thanks to all of your prayers. This weekend, since Emma’s daughter will be out of the hospital, we plan on having a 2 hour session covering the afterlife interview of Laci Peterson, all about climate change and that mysterious legend, Moth Man. It should be entertaining stuff, and I can’t...

Energy Protection

For those of you who submitted questions for the September Ask Erik column, click HERE to see how Erik answered them. If you didn’t, then you might want to read this anyway because it could apply to your life, too! And we’re ready to collect questions for October now, so if you want to submit...

Erik on Energy Cleansing

Ringo update: He hasn’t been drinking water at all and has only gotten fluids through the wet cat food he’s on temporarily. I’ve been giving him syringe-fulls of water on a frequent basis and he seems to be improving. Still, he looks miserable in his little collar. The poll results are in. Exactly 87.23 %...

Sex in the Afterlife

Ringo will be picked up from the vet today. Apparently, he sailed through surgery with no problems. Not only that, I called the emergency vet where I took the Jack Russell to be scanned and, in spite of the fact that her chip wasn’t registered, they found the owners.  Missed yesterday’s Hour of Enlightenment show...

Little Trickster

THE RADIO SHOW HAS CHANGED TO EVERY MONDAY: Tomorrow at 7 PM CT is Erik’s Hour of Enlightenment radio show. Call 619-639-4606 15 minutes prior to talk to Erik. http://goo.gl/aFHTzJ Topic: Seeking Approval. Also, I left out one of Sassy Mantras’ YouTubes. Check this out because it’s funny! Last but not least, I want to...

Sassy Mantras

I just stumbled upon a great YouTube channel called Sassy Mantras. She’s only got a few clips, all very short (which fits my tiny attention span.) Her first name is Daniela, and she’s actually been a blog member for quite some time. Daniela claims that Erik has encouraged her to start this YouTube channel, injecting...

Erik on Chakras, Part Two

Check out this very poignant video, courtesy of our new guest medium, Veronica Drake, about our boy Erik. She’s received an enormous amount of praise for her channeling here, and is planning to offer the same question and answer sessions as Raylene and Emma soon. She’s AWESOME! If you want to contact her, click HERE before...

The Joyride Show

Being on the Joyride Show with Kerry, Tiffanie, and Kari was so much fun, just like a bunch of girlfriends getting together and yakking! Watching this, you’ll learn a lot more about me, aside from being Erik’s mom. Be sure you subscribe to their channel. 

Erik on Gender

Since the Beltway and many roads are closed due to flooding (see yesterday’s post for pics,) traffic around town is HOR.RI.BLE. I was supposed to go on Tiffany and Kerry’s Joyride Show starting at 9:30 this AM, but what should have taken 15 minutes took over 1 1/2 hours so we missed it, had to...

Fear of Failure

Confession time. I have a lot of little quirks in my behavior, so let me share one. I prefer baths to showers and when I get out of the bathtub, I rush to dry off, get dressed and do whatever else I need to do. The goal: to be out of the bathroom before the...

Pranks, Pranks Everywhere!

Many of you have expressed a desire to donate to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Help is badly needed. Did you know that 70% of Harris County, which includes Houston and the surrounding areas, flooded with at least 1 1/2 feet of water? It’s crazy. The Beltway at I-10 is still closed because the underpass...

Where to Begin

If you're new to Channeling Erik, I recommend you read the backstory first. Then, I suggest you start with the very first post. In doing so you can follow my journey just as I did, through the inexplicable, inconceivable, and yet utterly undeniable surprises that I have encountered since my son''s death. Welcome.
