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.

Another Erik Prank and the Universal Language of the Afterlife

Today, Erik came by to wish our housekeeper, Maria, a Happy Birthday. As you may already remember, Maria has been in our lives since Erik was 16 months old. The love between my children and her has always been undyingly strong, and Erik, in particular, enjoyed talking her ear off, teasing her, and giving her...

Ask Erik: Lois’s Questions

Enjoy, this, the last question during the session with Jamie on the 16 of August. Bear with me, folks, because I’m trying to work through three channeling sessions that were scheduled within one week. I applaud your patience. For all you newcomers, I strongly suggest you start at the very first entry and work your...

Weekend Issues

First, I’d like to apologize for not posting this weekend. Hopefully some of you browsed the archives for entries you might have missed or wanted to revisit. I did fix the Media Gallery by upgrading to Cincopa Pro to allow more monthly traffic. This weekend was exhausting. I babysat for my cute little grand daughter,...

Ask Erik: Skoshi’s Questions

There is little I can say as a preamble except: Here are amazing answers for an amazing woman! Skoshi’s Questions I’m 63 and live in Spotsylvania. I have many heart birth defects, which I assume was planned and has to do with karma. Many years ago my cousins spent a lot of time and effort...

Danielle’s Gift

Danielle shared this song with me today, and it struck a deep chord of understanding. In truth, it took my breath away, because it perfectly encapsulates Erik’s life, my life, everything we’ve been learning together and the journey all of us are now taking. Surely, Danielle’s guides led her to this, entitled, Eric’s Song. Plus,...

New Media Gallery

Hey Guys! Check out the new Media Gallery page located just to the right of the “Now Reading” tab. This new page contains videos and photos of Erik. If you wish to start channeling Erik yourself, listen to his voice so you can recognize it when he talks to you!

Ask Erik: Lidian’s Question

Sometimes we have family members with chronic illnesses that present a great deal of heartache and challenge. I had my fair share with my younger sister, Denise, who passed away several years ago after a life plagued by complications from Diabetes. It was heart-wrenching to witness her decline. The last several years, she lived with...

Ask Erik: Connie’s Questions

Connie had so many crucial questions, I wish I could have answered them all. The answers we did get seem to give rise to dozens of others. Since early childhood, she, along with her family, suffered great losses and hardships, the most pivotal being the sudden death of her young mother. No wonder her questions...

Ask Erik: Julie’s Question

My heart breaks for this bereaved mother. How well I know her pain. I hope Erik and Jake can help her find some sliver of peace and joy in the darkness to which she and I have grown accustomed. Julie’s Question I lost my son Jake March 27 of this year. I do not know...

A Time for Miracles

As many of you know, grief hits the bereaved in waves. Over the weekend, with my mind uncluttered and free of the menial tasks of the work week, sadness poured into the open door like an unwelcome visitor who refused to leave. At my lowest point, Erik intervened with acts of merciful love. He saved...

Technical Difficulties

Just want to let you know that my email address doesn’t work now. Apparently some stupid Viagra-selling spammer got a hold of my contact list and gmail account. Now I can’t send or reply to any messages. I’m trying to figure out what to do. Hopefully, I can find a way to contact Google and...

Ask Erik: John’s Questions

John’s Question Hello Elisa and thank you and Erik so much for this wonderful blog. I’ve read every word so far and many times have been moved to tears. I feel like I’ve been directed here for a reason. I too feel transitional. Although I’m in my late 50′s and have had a fairly good...

From Elisa

I won’t be posting part of the channeling transcript today, as I had promised. I’m just not up to it, missing so deeply, feeling so much pain. This grief will never end. Please forgive me. I’ll post something tomorrow. Love you all, Elisa

Comic Relief

Hey guys, I hope you don’t think this is in bad taste, but on this blog, we often deal with so much sadness, that a little comic relief is welcome. I bet it’ll make you laugh as hard as I did.

Ask Erik: Joe’s Question

This next question comes from a husband and his wife who selflessly devoted the opportunity to help a family in need who lost their young daughter to suicide. I found it fascinating that Melanie, the deceased, behaved like a typical preteen girl even after she had crossed over. My heart warmed to know that Erik...

Practical Jokes and What’s with All the Dragonflies?

I just had another session today with Erik and Jamie. Although I’ll share details when I transcribe that session, I want to share a preview with you, my sweet virtual family. When I called Jamie at our set appointment time, she was giggling when she answered the phone. She said she was really tickled, because,...

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.
