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.

The Opiate Epidemic

We still have part of our house without power and some other things that need fixing, but one of our dear friends has 4-6 feet of water in his house and his cars are all totaled. No flood insurance, either. So many people are hurting right now in Houston and the surrounding areas because the...

Erik on God, Part Four

Enjoy the last of the series on God! If you prefer the video version, it’s at the end of the post. Also, don’t forget tomorrow at 7 PM CT is Erik’s Hour of Enlightenment radio show. Call 619-639-4606 15 minutes prior to talk to Erik. http://goo.gl/aFHTzJ Erik: Will God ever die? No. It’s infinite. Life...

Teasing Out Our Different Lives

Well, we finally wormed our way back home just an hour ago. The flooding we passed was indescribable. We saw military helicopters flying to and from hospitals, convoys of Texas National Guard vehicles, escorted volunteers towing boats to be used in rescues and just a lot of devastation. Please send prayers to Texas. We need...

Erik on the Refugee Crisis

Well, we made it to Dallas, rented a car and are now in Waco. In a few minutes, we’re going to try to drive to Houston, circumventing road closures. It’ll be tricky because those closures might change since they’re opening levees here and there. The negative of going home is that Michelle and Nick have...

Harvey is Bitch Slapping Us

Sorry no post today. We’re in a sticky situation. We boarded a plane here in the Santa Barbara airport only to be told we’ve have to disembark because of delays in the arrivals terminal in Dallas. Eventually, we’ll fly to Dallas where we have a rent a car waiting for us. Then, we’ll drive as...

Shooting Star and More

Rune and I are still in Santa Barbara having a good time, especially now that he’s finished with a string of 3+ hour business meetings! We were going to go on a catamaran ride, but it’s chilly and the air is moist here, so it doesn’t sound very appealing.  Meanwhile, Harvey is ravaging the Texas...

Jamie and Erik

Here I am on Rune’s company trip while Houston is about to be slammed by a hurricane. And I’m missing all the excitement. I’m a bad weather junkie, but I don’t like when people get hurt or killed, obvious. I just want a little rain and thunder. Nothing like that in Santa Barbara. Clear skies...

Erik on God, Part Three

Oh my god, peeps, I’ve been having a puppy party every day! My daughter, Kristina, has been bringing her two dogs over since they’re painting the cabinets in their new house and the fumes are pretty strong. Every time I take them outside to pee, it looks like a freaking clown car let out! Here...

Multiple Dimensions

The Channeling Erik Store is now open for business as per Erik’s insistence! Click HERE for start shopping! More products to come. Let me know if you want to sell your own products.  I now have–get this–34 volunteers for transcribing, which means that each person, me included, will probably only do 30 to 60 minutes of...

Erik on God, Part Two

I’m so grateful to all of you who have volunteered to help me with the transcriptions! I’m working on my guilt feelings about being an imposition, but all of you have said you’re happy to do it, and that makes me feel a lot better. If you want to be added to the list, email...

Erik on God, Part One

Okay, I’ve decided to accept generous offers for help transcribing. So many people need to read the blog rather than watch its videos and I want to honor that. I’d like to create a volunteer transcription pool, so if you guys who are willing to transcribe can let me know by emailing me at emedhus@gmail.com,...

Erik Texts, Calls and More

I’ve been trying out various automatic audio/video transcription softwares, and the results are very disappointing. I’d have to spend so much time correcting text that it would be more work and time than if I transcribed it myself. Do any of you guys know of a better service for cheap? I’ve looked for live transcriptionists...

So Much Erikness!

I’ve got a bit of a dilemma here. Many of you want the kind of variety in posts that I outlined and polled about a couple of days ago, but that means having more frequent sessions (two hours a week with Emma, one hour every other week with Kim and an hour a week with...

My Sister, Teri

First of all, it seems like the overwhelming majority of you agree with my decision to make significant changes to the blog, the biggest being making it mostly video based. I think more and more people don’t like reading and prefer to watch things like YouTubes.  Of course I still have transcripts to post, and...

Kundalini Awakening, Part Four

In the past few days, two different people have said the blog has become boring. Maybe I’ve overstayed my welcome. Can you guys give me advice on changes I should make? You can do that as a comment or email me at emedhus@gmail.com.  Tomorrow at 7 PM CT is Erik’s Hour of Enlightenment radio show....

Euthanasia

I had my Yag laser surgery for the cloudiness of the right lens capsule yesterday, and it went well. No pain. It took all of 20 seconds. There’s some clouding on the left side, too, but my doctor wants to monitor that for now. The only thing I’m slightly concerned about it I have a...

Kundalini Awakening, Part Three

It’s time to collect questions for the next Ask Erik questions (and I’m sure last month’s will be coming soon so that I can post them.) Please submit one short question and your first name and the initial of your last name to emedhus@gmail.com. Also, since Raylene won’t be doing the monthly Q&As for the...

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.
