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.

Early Morning Visit

Around four o’clock in the morning, I received a pleasant surprise–a visit from Erik. I was lying down on my left side facing away from the edge of the bed hovering somewhere between the sleep state and the wake state when I suddenly felt a presence behind me. In my peripheral vision, I could easily...

And Now for My Next Trick…

All I can say is, Erik, you must have a lot of time on your hands now! I love his little pranks because it so confirms his comforting presence. It’s nice to know that, in death, he has only shed his body, not his lovely personality and playfulness. Nearly every day, he does something to...

Erik, the TV Star

Just when we thought he had grown tired of his little pranks with our appliances, Erik strikes again…twice. His new gig…messing with televisions. His first TV appearance occurred at my eldest daughter’s apartment a couple of days ago. Sometimes she feels Erik’s presence when she goes upstairs to her bedroom at night. This apparently freaks...

Erik Playing with Plumbing

Ever the mechanically minded, Erik has branched out from kitchen appliances to plumbing fixtures. He hasn’t totally abandoned the kitchen downdraft vent, mind you, as it has continued to rise up out of the countertop at his command. In my last channeling session with him on the 18th of this month, he confessed to being...

Erik Teases Us Again!

They say that the spirits of our departed loved ones enjoy staying in contact with us and try to get our attention in numerous ways in an effort to continue their relationship with us in the afterlife. The easiest ways for them to do so is by visiting us in dreams and by manipulating electrical...

Ask Erik: Sarah’s Question

Here is the last question in this incredibly long list of submissions to the Ask Erik venue. Let’s see what kind of detective Erik is! Sarah’s Question Hello, and thank you for sharing your experiences with those of us who have also lost loved ones and are looking for answers. My question for Erik is...

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...

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.
