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: Randi’s Question

Here is the next Ask Erik submission from a bright young woman with any questions about her direction in life. Randi’s Question Hi Elisa, I stumbled across your Web site fortuitously. I was searching for Felix Lee Lerma (who I have seen before) and your posts came up. I am captivated by you, Erik, your...

Ask Erik: D.B.’s Question

Today, we have a question submitted from a concerned aunt. I only wish I had had enough time to answer all of her questions in more detail. D.B.’s Question Hi Elisa and Erik, I visit your blog daily and am amazed at some of the information Erik is providing. After reading the type of questions...

Ask Erik: Gina’s Question

The next question for Erik comes from a dear friend and coworker of mine. She’s a very gentle spirit with a kind heart, so it was difficult to learn that she experienced a tragedy similar to mine. In August of 2009, her brother took his life the same way Erik did, by gunshot wound to...

Ask Erik: Essie’s Question

My heart goes out to this next woman, because she and I share similar tragedies. Both our boys took their own lives very recently at the tender age of 20. Let’s see if Erik can help console and heal Essie as he has helped me. Essie’s Question Hi Elisa, Thank you for being willing to...

Ask Erik: Dina’s Question

This next question is from a young woman who goes by the name, Dina. Dina’s Question Hello Elisa, I’m writing to inquire about your “Channeling Erik” page. I’ll start off by saying this is my very first time doing anything like this. I’ve never had a reading done, I’ve never talked to a medium, I’ve...

Ask Erik: Hope’s Question

Hope’s Question Well I have been reading all the updates on channeling Erik.. It is truly amazing how much Erik is helping others. I have been speaking a little with you Mrs. Elisa about my Grandma. I wouldn’t to see if Erik could help me have a little bit piece of mind. I think about...

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...

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.
