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.

Ask Erik: Paula’s Question

And now for a question from a concerned mother: Paula’s Question I am both intrigued and skeptical by your reports of visits by Erik and the channeling. I know grief, and dealing with it, takes many forms. I am impressed by your ability to put into words what most of us bury (no pun intended)...

Ask Erik: Guillermo’s Secret

This first question is from a dear friend of mine who’s father died very recently. Within the last few years, her daughter divulged a terrible secret that she’s kept to herself since she was very young: her grandfather, Guillermo, had been molesting her for years. She has been progressing well in therapy but, because her...

Teen Shit

In this part of the channeling session with Kim O’Neill, Erik discusses self-esteem issues and delivers messages for his sisters and brother. Let’s begin. Me: What, other than past life issues, really affected your self-esteem, Erik? I mean, why? What happened to you? Erik, shrugging: Just typical shit. Typical teenage shit. Kim: Erik, could you...

Future Work with Erik

In previous channeling sessions, Erik has told me that we are meant to work together on several projects: this blog, some books, a TV series and a movie. I can’t fathom this, as my energy and motivation is as low as my spirits. How low? The Marianas trench looks like the Rocky Mountain ridge by...

Suicide: To Be or Not to Be

I’ve had a number of readers submit questions to the Ask Erik column who are depressed. Many are in crisis, at a crossroads and in despair. Some are admittedly contemplating suicide. As a physician, my impulse is to help by giving them various resources and a compassionate ear. As a mother, my impulse is to...

Crisis of Faith

The last couple of months have been difficult for me. I haven’t really felt Erik’s presence for what seems like an eternity. No sounds, no signs, no smells, no nothing. This paucity of evidence along with my ever-present tendency to analyze and doubt has begun to erode my faith. Yesterday, I had an epiphany about...

Is 2012 the End?

Last time I channeled Erik through psychic medium, Kim O’Neill, I asked him a question that seems to cause a great deal of concern to people the world over. Does the year 2012 mark the end of the world as predicted by the Mayans? With the world economy in historic distress, with Iran and North...

Finding Strength in the Dark Forest of Grief

Many readers have commented on how strong I am despite having just lost a son. After all, can there be any greater travesty than the death of one’s child? For me, no nightmare is as grim. The grief is still raw and fresh like an open wound. Yet since my blog explores the “upside” to...

Ask Erik: Irene’s Question

I really enjoy watching Erik wield his newfound wisdom to help others. I have my next channeling session in a couple of days and already have several Ask Erik submissions, along with my own personal questions. Here’s the last one from a woman living across the pond. Irene’s question: Hello Erik: I would like to...

Ask Erik: Tom’s Question

And now for the next question presented to Erik through psychic medium, Kim O’Neill. Please note that I’ve obscured the last name for privacy issues. Tom’s “Ask Erik” submission: Hi Elisa, Stanley is a friend of mine and back in February, he emailed me a link to your blog here. At the time I thought...

Ask Erik: Lauren’s Question

Mother’s Day looms in the near future like a dark specter taunting me. I feel so conflicted. On the one hand, I should be rejoicing that day. After all, I do have four wonderful children still here with me on the earthly plane. On the other hand, this is the first Mother’s Day without Erik...

Ask Erik: Bethany’s Question

Here is the next of several submissions to the “Ask Erik” page. As you can see, we’ve kept him very busy, but I’m sure he adores the attention. Bethany’s question: In 1996 my uncle committed suicide and my family seemed to fall apart after this. My dad has been in deep depression since, and his...

Birthday Wishes From Heaven

My eldest daughter and Erik’s sister, Kristina, celebrated her 26th birthday on the first of May. The evening before, the entire family joined her at a new Indonesian restaurant to rejoice over the wonderful years we’ve spent with her here on earth. Firsts are difficult, though, and Kristina’s first birthday without her little brother is...

Ask Erik: Cassie’s Question

Cassie’s question: You’ve never met me, but I knew Erik in high school and even though we didn’t speak much, gosh, he was such a neat guy! I go to his facebook page nearly every day and I’ve read every blog of yours. It’s truly inspiring considering I lost my father very suddenly when I...

Ask Erik: Pascal’s Question

Erik has done so much to help us peons here on Earth. Oftentimes, our struggles compel us to flirt with suicide, so when Erik offers his wisdom and insight, it lights our way with hope and a newfound desire to continue our human experience, however trying and burdensome. The next several posts will include submissions...

Channeling Erik Through Felix Lee Lerma, Part Five

And now (drum roll, please) for the final segment in my channeling session with psychic medium extraordinaire, Felix Lee Lerma. As always, comments are welcome. Erik wants you to quit beating yourself up over what happened. Yeah. He said you’re being hard on yourself. Well I think back on my last conversation with him before...

Channeling Erik Through Felix Lee Lerma, Part Four

Before we begin with the next segment of my session with psychic medium, Felix Lerma, I’d like to make an announcement. Yesterday, I had a very short session with Kim O’Neill,, and I used that opportunity to ask some of the questions readers submitted through the “Ask Erik” page. I will post those transcripts soon....

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.
