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.

Depression to Progression

Before you read this beautiful testimonial, I want to wish you all a wonderful 2017. May it be a year of love, peace and enlightenment! My name is Michelle and from the U.K., living and working in Dubai as a teacher. I was introduced to Channelling Erik by my Indian friend, and after watching one...

Erik Farts

In case you missed it, here’s this past week’s radio show where Erik discusses ways to communicate with deceased loved ones, but this time, from the standpoint of emotion. He has so much to share about how to keep our relationship with our loved ones alive, that I think we’re going to have to have...


Kickboxing has been exhausting lately, and I found out why. I ordered annual lab work for my husband and I and my thyroid hormone is low. Very low. I don’t know how I was doing what I was doing. That might also explain why I’ve been a little bit in a funk, having trouble forcing...

The Giant Cosmic Wave

Rune’s been taking off the last few days because not much is going on in the stock market this time of year, so I’ve really been enjoying his company. I can’t wait until he semi-retires (he’ll never completely retire) and can work out of the home more often. I’ll have the opportunity to drive him...

All About Love and Hate

Rune decided to play hooky, so we’re going to do errands and other fun things today, so I’ll keep this introduction short. I mean REALLY short. Happy Holidays again, peeps! Me: Okay, one more question for today. Where did hate and love actually originate? I guess that’s weird, because I think we humans think that...

Weight Issues, Part Three

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Christmas Eve was awesome for me because my eldest daughter, Kristina, and her hubby, Houston, flew in from North Carolin to surprise us. They were supposed to spend the weekend in Asheville, NC, but decided to hang with the fam instead! When she walked through my door, my...

This Week’s Radio Show

I’m not posting the usual post today because we’re busy with Christmas Eve festivities with the family. Because of our Norwegian heritage, we celebrate today instead of tomorrow. (But of course I’ll probably celebrate both days!) Have a Merry Christmas, everyone and enjoy this past Thursday’s radio show where Erik shares tips on how to...

Captain Erik McDingus

I’m still bummed about the family drama. One of my closest family members has shut off all communication with the rest of the family for reasons I don’t understand. No one knows what has upset this person, and I think it’s always best to communicate and to air everything out with love and emotional honesty....

You’re Blowing my Mind, Man!

I just got through shopping for our “Little Christmas Eve” Norwegian frukost (breakfast). It basically consists of open-faced sandwiches that have smoked salmon, salami, sliced hardboiled eggs, cheeses and other possible toppings. It’s delicious, but I swear, whenever we go to Norway, after a few days, I don’t care if I never see another sandwich...

Weight Issues, Part Two

I’m not going to write much of an introduction because I’m a little bummed about some family drama. Triangulation sucks. But I do want to remind you of the radio show tomorrow! Also, I’ll be calling out for questions for the Ask Erik column, so be sure you read the blog to catch it. Remember...

Weight Issues

Our trip to visit Kristina, Houston and Gidget was such a success that it was hard to leave! My stomach was in knots at the passenger drop-off because I knew I’d miss them so much. I hate goodbyes. To top it off, I was a little nervous for Bella. She’s such a small dog that...

More on the Holidays

We’re still enjoying our time here in North Carolina. The other day, a red fox traveled across the backyard and a hawk circled above Gidget and Bella. Gulp. I love wildlife but not the type that considers my dog a tasty morsel.  Today, I think we’re going to the History Museum and perhaps travel 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.
