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: 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....

Channeling Erik Through Felix Lerma, Part Three

I’ve been having a very hard time lately. It seems like I must work so hard to distract myself. Idle moments take me to a very dark and unhappy place. The images of what he looked like when I found his body, his blank and lifeless stare, the smell of gunpowder and blood in the...

Channeling Erik Through Felix Lerma, Part Two

And now for the anxiously awaited continuation of the channeling session with world renown psychic medium, Felix Lee Lerma. Let’s jump right it. Again, as before, Felix’s comments will be in italics and mine will be in plain text. Enjoy. Who’s Mickey or Mike? Mike? Mike is…I met two friends who also had children who...

A Message for Aunt Laura

Yesterday my sister, Laura, was driving past the cemetery where my son is buried. She said her usual greetings of love and longing when suddenly, this song began to play on the radio. It reminded her of Erik. Surely it was a message from him. Perhaps he wants us all to know he’s home. Many...

Erik’s Visit to Brianna

We’ve been blessed to have such wonderful neighbors on our street while Erik and his brother and sisters were growing up. One of the families we’ve been the closest to live right across the street. Although Erik was older than all of them, he was very fond of the now 16 year old twins, Brandon...

Channeling Erik Through Psychic Medium, Felix Lee Lerma

A friend tipped me off to Felix Lee Lerma, a young psychic medium living in San Francisco who apparently is very well-regarded, conducting readings for a number of celebrities and other famous people. I had to wait four agonizingly long months for my appointment to finally arrive. I’ll break my hour long session into several...

Soul Relay Race

Recently, a news article was published in a British newspaper about a Croatian teenager who wakes from a coma speaking fluent German. She had never spoken that language before. Furthermore, she could no longer converse in her native tongue. Is this added proof that walk-ins are possible? If so, doesn’t this further substantiate the survival...

Life’s Work in Heaven

After these many months of having inside information about the afterlife, I’ve discovered how oddly similar Heaven is to the earthly plane. Aside from the fact that you have no body and have greater abilities to manifest what you want immediately, so may aspects seem the same. Discarnate souls can have homes, material possessions, and...

Love One, Death Zero

My next series of questions focus on Erik’s big sister, Kristina, who is currently finishing up her second year in medical school. She’s had little or no time to stop and catch her breath since his death, much less go through the full grieving process. His suicide came as such a violent shock to all...

Past Lives

I often wondered why Erik was such an enigma. He was brought up in a loving and nurturing environment with endless opportunities to thrive. He was surrounded by so many friends who loved him. He was exposed to wonderful adventures, hobbies and destinations. So, why did he feel so lonely all the time? Why did...

The Nature of Souls and Thought

My next few questions for Erik mirrored my penchant for understanding the underpinnings of life and reality. Consider me like a devout car enthusiast who spends hours under the hood of a ’57 Mustang marveling at its cylinder arrangement. Whatever, I don’t know enough about auto mechanics to put together a believable sentence here, but...

Working with Energy

Since Erik’s death, one of my deepest desires has been to see him, to hold him, to hug him, to kiss him, to hear the sound of his voice and his wonderfully infectious laugh. As you can see from various entries, we’ve been blessed by numerous occasions when he’s been tangible through our senses of...

Punked Again!

Let me start by saying I have this thing about being organized. Very organized. I have lists for everything, even lists of my lists. This personality trait probably evolved because of my ADHD as a means of finding order in my own personal chaos. I don’t know if I could have survived medical school otherwise....

Erik and the Fortune Cookie

When I was a kid, fortune cookies were kick ass. (I was fairly easy to please.) Seriously, they pointed you in the right direction, gave clarity to a muddled path, and were just, well, fun! Now, it’s all about moral advice for morons: the early bird gets the worm, people in glass houses, yada, yada,...

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.
