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.

The Power of the Hugs and Angels

Deb sent me the most amazing YouTube video today which happens to fit perfectly with a story I want to share with you all. When Erik was in one of his deepest, darkest periods, two angels crossed his path at the perfect moment. He was waiting in front of the IHOP restaurant near the high...

More on Animal Souls

I had the most amazing lucid dreams last night. It was one of those dreams where you think you’re actually awake. Maybe I was, I don’t know. I knew my eyes were closed, but I could still “see” in spite of that fact. I thought that was pretty weird. So, with eyes shut, I saw...

Enlightenment

I’m still under the weather with influenza, but busily wiping down the phones, door handles and keyboards with disinfectant to protect our boy, Robert. He’s on Tamiflu, doing well, happy to have his staples out! I’m not going to edit this entry, so can y’all let me know if you see any glaring boo-boos? Channeling...

Death, Council of Elders, and the Life Review

Joan Rivers and Erik Antics

Kristina is in New York at a leadership conference in New York City and heard Joan Rivers speak during lunch. Afterwards, they met and talked at length about their tragic experiences losing family members to suicide. You may or may not recall that Joan’s husband killed himself years ago. Anyway, Kristina went on to tell...

Erik’s Eulogies

Don’t know why I feel compelled to share these, but here are the eulogies that were said at Erik’s memorial service in the order they were delivered. A lot of pain was felt by all that day. I guess I just wanted to share what an amazing soul our Erik was and is. Sigh. Kristina’s...

Sublime Illusion

I recently discovered that Robert is also an amazing poet and has been writing since he was a small child. Here’s a poem he wanted me to share with the rest of the family. The Sublime Illusion You, I, We Exist in this temporary space, Encased in fragile forms To play a part In the...

Prostitutes, Drug Addicts, Criminals and Robots in the Afterlife?

Channeling Transcript Me: One of the blog members wants to know if there are prostitutes, drug addicts and criminals in the afterlife. I mean, can you pay for the services of a prostitute, can you buy drugs, can you commit crimes there? Erik (laughing): Well, there aren’t any criminals, cuz there’s no crime here, Mom!...

More Erik Mischief!

Enjoy blog member, Randi’s, Erik experience. I always enjoy wondering: ‘Who’s next?’ Maybe it’s you! Hi Elisa! I’ve been meaning to write you for a few days now — I’ve also been meaning to call Robert — but work is so insane right now that I was actually up until 4 am last Saturday night....

He’s here with me at home, no doubt being driven crazy by the happy chaos. My sister and brother-in-law are coming to help us celebrate! As if this wasn’t good...

Professor Patrick Bends Minds Again

As blog member, Patrick, proves once more, us here Texans are a lot smarterer than we sound. In fact, we’ve dedicated a topic thread for him in the Channeling Erik forums so he can continue to make us feel like morons. Yay! Oh, and in yesterday’s channeling session, I asked Erik a lot about God,...

NOTE: I SEE THAT THIS IS NOW PASSWORD PROTECTED. IT’S  WORTH PURCHASING THOUGH!! THE AFTERLIFE INVESTIGATIONS DVD EDIT 12.1.11 from TIM COLEMAN on Vimeo.

Ask Jason: Barby’s Questions

A couple of quick but important announcements: It looks like they won’t have to carve on Robert after all. The surgeon thinks it’s a huge hematoma (collection of clotted blood) rather than an abscess. Not sure how this can cause a white cell count of 21,000, but he may come home tomorrow!! I’m concerned that...

The Jason and Erik Show

First an update on Robert. Good news and bad news. The good news is that Robert feels great other than frequent shaking chills. The bad news is that on CT scan, they found a big abscess just behind the bladder causing those chills as well as his high white cell count. So back to the...

Two Announcements

I just got through watching the most amazing DVD called The Afterlife Investigations: Has Science Proven the Afterlife. If you are still a skeptic watch it and your doubts will vanish. If you have a loved one with who thinks we’re all a little woo-woo nuts, have them watch it so you can say, “I...
