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.

Channeling Omar Mateen, Part One

Sorry for the lack of an intro for this post, but I have 700 square feet of filthy grout and tile with my name on it. Have a great weekend, everyone! Me: Hi, Robert. Hello, Erik. Erik (waving his hand really fast): Hey, Mom. Me: My baby boy. Robert: He’s holding his arms out like this...

The Penal Code

I’ve always felt like our justice system is unfair on many levels. It’s one-sided in that it’s almost purely punitive. Instead, I think we need to realize that those who commit crimes, particularly related to drugs, are often in pain. Even rapists and murderers probably commit their crimes because of a painful past. Not all,...

Mental Shredding

I had my second kickboxing session yesterday evening and took it much easier. Afterwards, I didn’t throw up in my mouth and only half of my body’s cells were bleeding and begging for mercy. I’ll just have to listen to my body every time. After all, I’m a 61 year-old grandmother. Kickboxing doesn’t seem to...

Congratulations, Shruti! Short Summary of the Event. All CE peeps stayed together with Shruti and Alison in a...

Orlando and San Diego

Hey all, I’m posting this separately because I don’t want it to be overlooked as it’s important. The tour to Orlando and San Diego may not have enough ticket sales to pay for the venue, but that might be because we all tend to procrastinate. Unfortunately, Kim has to make a decision before a certain...

Enjoy these great Erik stories! Story #1 Dear Elisa, I wrote to you before how wonderful your work, your book and Erik’s book, and how I wanted to have these books translated into Indonesian language. Well, it didn’t work this time, but I wanted to share that no matter how far we live, Erik just...

Ho Hum, Part One

I just had my first kickboxing session, and I thought I would die. I was the oldest person in the room, of course, but they encouraged me to listen to my body, and take time out when I felt overwhelmed. I had to do that when I threw up a little in my mouth. The...

Living in the Now

Today is Erik’s birthday, and I don’t know whether to feel bummed or celebratory. Maybe I should feel a little of both. My emotions are all over the place, and I thought that by seven years in, they wouldn’t be. Please be sure to wish him a happy birthday on his Facebook page )Erik Rune...

Reality or Just an Idea?

Our vacation is coming to an end. It’s been amazing. For example, we visited the ruins of Pompeii and traveled along the hair raising Amalfi coast yesterday. Tomorrow, we spend the day in Barcelona, and Monday, we get on a flight back to the States. We’ve had so much fun, but I look forward to...

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.
