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...

Hour of Enlightenment

I’m on the road to Dallas to attend Rune’s CMRA awards banquet, so I’m not going to post the usual. Instead, I really want you guys to listen to this week’s radio show because it applies to almost everyone. Even the answers to callers’ questions will help you! Have a great Saturday! Listen to “Hour...

Channeling Bruce Lee, Part Three

The Ask Erik magazine column for December is finally out on the Sivana blog and soon to come out in the Sedona Journal. You can read it HERE. I’ll be calling for the next round of questions the third week of this month, so be sure to read the blog daily if you want to...

Erik on Unschooling

I love Amazon. I purchased 99% of my Christmas gifts from there, but I had to buy one thing for my husband through another online retailer. For some reason, they generated two orders of the same thing with two separate order numbers and delivered both packages. I called to have them issue a call tag...

Channeling Bruce Lee, Part Two

Medium, Raylene Nuances, has agreed to hosting monthly “Ask Erik” sessions starting in late January. She’s going to set up her site so that you can reserve your spot to ask Erik a question. Of course, there will be a limited number of spots, but I’ll give you the details as soon as she gives...

Diseases in Higher Dimensions

Before we get into today’s Best of Erik post, I want to give a shout out to my dear friend and cohost of the Joy Ride Show, Tiffany Williams. Last night, she put a get well gift basket full of wonderful goodies in front of my door. I wish she had knocked so we could...

Channeling Bruce Lee, Part One

Last night, I could barely sleep. I’ve been suffering from a nasty ol’ cold and had been getting better, but now it’s in my chest so I was coughing and sputtering for hours. My poor husband was such a good sport about it. So, doped up with Dayquil, I’m pounding away on my laptop, waiting...

Erik Being Erik

Story #1 I have an Erik story-I assume it was him because it seems like something he would do, lol… My mom and I have been staying in a hotel since December 29th, 2015. We had an interior, electrical fire. We made it out unscathed, thank god. But, between insurance hold ups and slow construction...

Erik Helps to Heal

It’s so Christmassy outside, cold, gray and drizzling, so tonight we’re (finally) going to put up the Christmas tree adn decorations. Michelle and Rune tell me they only want to put up the tree and stockings because usually when I decorate the inside of the house, there’s garland, various figurines, snowy villages, animated Santas (although...

Extinction, Part Deux

Thanks to you guys and Bobby Salmon, the CE mobile app is looking great. He’s putting the final touches on, then we have to submit it to iTunes and Google Play. I’m not sure how long it takes to be accepted by these two, but surely no more than a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, the...

Coping with the Holidays, Part One

Medium, Raylene Nuances, invited me to have a session with her today, and it went very well. We were supposed to talk about weight issues with Erik, and we did, but she first wanted to give me a personal reading with the help of my new spirit guide, Amanda (I guess I ran one off...

Female Feticide and Infanticide

I freaking love the Internet. I almost never have to leave my house! I’ve just about finished all of my Christmas shopping, all thanks to Amazon. It’s no secret to many that I hate, hate, hate shopping. Not your typical female I guess. Also I ordered all my groceries via Instacart, and they should be delivered...

Euthanasia, Part Two

Over the weekend, a veneer on one of my front teeth, showcasing that fashionable Howdy Doody look: Fortunately, my awesome dentist was able to cement it on, but why, oh why do these things happen on a Friday??  I had a session today with Kim and was able to ask Erik about the situation in...

Erik Never Fails to Impress

I’m Austin today at COTA (Circuit of the Americas) where my husband is tearing up the track with his BMW motorcycle all clad in leathers (which of course beats the hell out of bubble wrap in these types of situations.) Other than watching him race, it’s pretty boring listening to the guys talk about their...

Dragonflies and Doves

I decided to limit the Erik Encounters to just one if they’re on the longish side. I thought this one was great and so like Erik.  One day, while at work, I was sitting in the kitchen on the 4th floor of my building. There are two windows that open and one has no screen....

Euthanasia, Part One

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mine was great. Lots of happy noise, full bellies and family closeness. Of course, it’ll be a lot better when someone (hint, hint, Lukas) cleans up their share of the dishes. Before reading the first part of our Euthanasia series, check out this hilarious video my daughter,...

Vaccines, Part Two

Annika and Lukas came home from college yesterday afternoon, and I’m so glad to have all my babies here. Unfortunately, my eldest baby, Kristina, will be having Thanksgiving for the first time in her new home in North Carolina. 🙁 I know she’s excited! Of course, I probably won’t see Annika before noon because she’ll...

Gratitude in Time for Turkey Day

I finally found out how to get to the names of those of you who have donated so generously and want to extend my heartfelt thanks to each and every one! Thank you: Chen Wang Teresa Stroupe Amanda Cameron James Beach Luciana Humphreys Billie Christopher Donna Young Vogel Erin Bloomenfeld Virginia Ballinger-Pierce Candi Johnson Robin...

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.
