A Ray of Hope for the New Year

First of all, I want to express my deep love and gratitude for all of your caring comments and wise insight. I don’t know what I’d do without you all. Before I unveil a deliciously exciting piece of news, I want to share another side to grief with you that those of you who have lost loved ones may relate to as well. It is my hope that when we all relate to the same things, whether painful or joyful, we gain a sense of community and connection. So here it is. One of the most difficult aspects of grief other than the obvious is how it has changed my footing in the family. Before, I was the “glue of the family,” the one others came to when they wanted advice, unconditional love, nurturing, encouragement or a kind and patient ear. Now, I feel like the weak one. The fragile invalid. The 800 pound gorilla in the room around which others must step on eggshells. I hate this new role, and I don’t know how to get out of it. I don’t know how to rediscover my strength and change from child to matriarch. One day, perhaps…
And now for the fun stuff. Here is a comment Robert posted to the last entry.
Now on to something funny doll…i was speaking to Laura today and while we were talking, Erik popped in and flushed the toilet.  he gotta a kick outta doing that, mostly because I got a confused look on my face and then grinned when i heard him laughing and slapping his knee.  I didn’t mention it to Laura because at the time we were deep in a discussion and i didn’t wanna lose focus.  Erik says that was precisely why he did it….he LOVES trying to throw me off my game!  oh, Erik wants to know if the floors were warm enough for ya’ll there in the chalet.  i assume he must have been up to something or he wouldn’t have brought it up…heehee…

Big hugs and lots of love to everyone!
The reason this comment is so amazing is that several days ago, the warming cables in the floor of the main bathroom went totally haywire for the first time ever. Despite being at the proper setting, they heated up so much that the ambient temperature in the room was 89 degrees, and it felt like we were walking on hot coals. Rune had to reset the entire system. Our first thought was, “Erik, you little sneak!” This event was a classic Erik calling card.
No one but us, 5000 miles away, could have known about this electrical malfunction. It was not posted anywhere. It lived and died in the austere beauty of the Arctic Tundra. Furthermore, not many would know that floors in this remote little chalet could (and should) heat up.
This story spun my mood around 180 degrees. I’m hoping it gives you the same comfort and joy on this important and meaningful date: 1/1/11. 11:11 is the number for manifestation. May you all manifest joy and abundance in the coming year.
Sorry, but I’m being pulled out the door for a long and snowy walk. No time for edits or spell checks! Love you all!

    LOL. Erik is so sneaky. He just loves being a prankster.:)

    I LOVE validation from spirit! Amazing story, Elisa!

    On another note, my brother visited family in upstate NY and 12 of them went to see a medium in a group setting. They were amazed at the validation of facts that came through for nearly everyone in the room, especially healing and love for one man there who’s brother had recently died of a brain tumor and came through. I’m finally starting to realize that yes, this whole crazy spirit thing is REAL.

    Ok, at 11:11 today, I’m going to meditate to manifest some really good stuff for this year…

    Happy 2011 to everyone!

    Elisa, loved the video yesterday. The landscape was so stark and painfully beautiful- and, hearing your voice was such a warm rush of sunlight in contrast.

    Sounds like the floor bit was one of Erik’s better tricks- that’s hilarious!

    May all of us continue any good that 2010 brought, and bring joy, peace, and comfort into the new year.

    Elisa, may you feel the love of a thousand readers so that it lifts you up above your grief- if only for a moment here and there.

    To all of the other readers hurting- may we all send loving thoughts to each other so that we receive them when we need them the most.

  • Recipe for a Happy New Year

    Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate, cleanse them completely from every clinging spite; pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these months are freed from all the past—have them fresh and clean as when they first came from the great storehouse of Time.

    Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time (so many persons spoil the entire lot this way) but prepare one day at a time.

    Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work (some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, prayer, meditation, rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing—don’t do it), and one well-selected resolution.

    Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.

    To Elisa, Erik & the whole CE family, I look forward to another wonderful year of getting to know you…

    In reaching out with others, we heal ourselves. In giving happiness, we receive our peace. In rising above our sorrows, we find our joy.

    Happy New Year! 🙂

    Love and hugs,

    • Couldn’t have said it better myself, Ceridwen. This might actually beat my grandmother’s cobbler recipe from 1901! (Fewer calories, too!)

  • Skoshi

    I just read Robert’s post on the other screen. It really is fabulous! It never fails to amaze me how generous some of us are…like Erik picking you up with humor. Can you imagine him sitting around in the unfettered life thinking, now what can I do to get their attention? And he gets inspired to turn up the heating in the floor?! I’m sure if there was any way Erik could take away your pain, he would, and he’ll continue to give proof that he’s around.

    • Yes, Skoshi, and when he’d get tickled about something, he’d slap his knee just as Robert says. What a funny, lovely boy. And this all validates how special Robert’s abilities are. He’s an amazing channel, probably more amazing than he realizes, the humble sweetie that he is. You know, I’m being to see that each blog member has a special abilities. Some endow great wisdom, some shift perspectives, some help us with our shaky faith, and some remind us of our connectivity. There are many things at play here, both internally among blog members and between the blog and the rest of the world that awaits what we are meant to do to inspire and awaken.

  • Paul Conklin

    Dear Elisa,

    Sometimes what we think is strength is actually weakness. What we think is weakness is actually strength. Vulnerability is something that is derived from a caring and loving heart. You feel that your vulnerability is a weakness and that other family members must now carry you.

    You were the one always doling out the unconditional love, patience and a listening ear. You were the “glue” that held the family together. But that is a very burdensome role to undertake. Not a single one of us can handle the storms of this life alone. We put ourselves into roles that we have created. Then when we stumble and fall we feel that we have let down those that we love the most.

    Imagine a burly man that has been the rock for his family. He is the patriarch. He is the one that all the family members run to when there is a problem. One day when he is out shoveling snow he feels a sharp pain in his chest. The pain radiates to his jaw and left arm. He is having a heart attack.

    Luckily, a family member looks out the window at just that time and watches as his father falls to the ground. He calls the ambulance and performs CPR while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. With his child’s efforts the man survives, but the doctors find there is something very serious that needs attention.

    The doctors find that there is a tear in his aorta. He must have an aortic heart valve replacement or he will die. He is prepped for surgery and then put under anesthesia. The surgeon delicately and with skill removes the defective aortic heart valve and replaces it with the new one that has been donated.

    It is touch and go for a while, but after several weeks the man is allowed to return to his family. However, there are many restrictions. He must watch his diet. He must limit his physical activity.

    It is quite common for anyone that has had a heart attach to suffer severe depression in the aftermath. He can no longer do the things that he used to do. He is restricted as to his diet and as to his physical activities. He feels useless and unnecessary.

    His family members now must take up the slack. They must now do the things that their father used to perform with ease. But what he does not consider is that his example was the greatest gift that he had ever given them. It is now their turn to give back what their father had given them.

    Your family’s gift to you Elisa is to give back what you have given them in full measure. You were blindsided one day when you lost your heart, but the surgeons were not able to repair it. But the unconditional love that you had given out so freely returned to you and began to form a new heart. A new heart built from the ashes of your former heart that burned down when you lost your beloved.

    You must restrict certain activities at the moment, but when your new heart has reformed, you will be able to do the things that you used to do. You will resume your role as the family matriarch and all of your family members will be stronger as a result. They too will be able to give out the pearls of unconditional love that you have taught them.

    My dear friend, you are far stronger than you think. One day you shall rise again because your new heart will be beating firmly. Each beat of your new heart is saying, “This too shall pass, this too shall pass.”


    • I swear, Paul, I think you and I have a connection, because you read my mind. As I drifted off to sleep last night, my thoughts were about Love. Love is special because it makes us both strong and weak. By opening our hearts, we render ourselves vulnerable to pain, but we also endow ourselves with the power to heal and positively transform. You also read my mind in that I understand abstracts best with metaphors, and your story about the father with heart disease is so poignant and effective. Your writing is powerful, because it generates epiphany after epiphany. Short of the Seth books, no writing has yielded such power for me. You are a gift to the Channeling Erik family, Paul.

  • M and M

    Elisa and all, I have not lost a child but I have lost close loved ones and I have been in a situation for a long time that has tested who I am (or who I thought I was) to the core of my being. I too used to be the strong one, the together one, the one who gave others comfort just by being present because I had this ability to make everything go smoothly. I worked so hard to accomplish that always and in all situations, never letting my guard down. I thought my place in the world, what gave me the right to be here, was to make others better, happier. I went from being the pillar of strength to leaning on others to get by when everything collapsed around me. I believe this is part of the duality of the world we live in, and as much as that sucks, I also think it gives us a rare chance to see a side of ourselves that we would not have seen otherwise. Vulnerability shows true strength and courage. It also gives our loved ones a chance to experience and love us in a new way and to provide a level of love and support that they could not have done otherwise. I think all of us who are going through this great transformation are so very courageous and strong, that we all have extremely loving and compassionate souls; since we can give even more of ourselves despite the heart splitting, non ending pain we are going through. I know that feeling well, going from strength to total vulnerability, and hate it so fully, but I know that that feeling has brought us all together, and it has brought us closer to our loved ones in ways that could not have happened otherwise. I am so very thankful for everyone’s courage and support, and I am thankful to Erik for his love and support- after all he has gone through as well. The silver lining in tragedy is when people come together to care and support one another, and that can only happen with vulnerability. Elisa, I look at you as stronger for this, for living your vulnerable self with your family and for sharing it with the rest of us. I feel I have grown from it and for that I thnak you. Here is to a soul enriching 2011. Love to you all.

    • Aw, M and M, you’ve made my day! You’re so sweet! And God, you sound a lot like me, wanting to help and heal and guide others. But the whole duality thing is right on. And as Nina said, sometimes you have to give an opportunity for others to rise to the occasion, to find the strength within so that they can give us the comfort and support we need in our weakest moments. When I read your words, I realize that learning to let our guard down so that others can come in to help us is, in fact, a form of strength, a form of giving. (even if it means kicking and screaming all the way.)

  • Skoshi

    I think you need feel no “less” for being vulnerable, Elisa. During the session when my guides told me to buy “Demystifying DNA”, they quoted to me from Alice Domar’s “Self-Nurture: Learning to Care for Yourself As Effectively As You Care for Everyone Else.” They didn’t tell me to buy it, but I figured I probably needed it, because I’ve felt responsible for others all my life. As I said in the last post, even as a very little child, I felt I had to care for others. Before my brother was born, I thought I had to protect my mother from my father. Little did I realize at that age that she purposely needled him and started fights. In any event, I often have thought that I was “born old.” Far too serious, stressed and worried. I appreciate Erik’s humor, playfulness, and willingness to tolerate all our foibles.

    • I can totally relate to feeling responsible for others, Skoshi. Of course you’ve probably gotten the same, “You have to take care of yourself if you’re going to be able to take care of others,” and I know there’s truth in that, but for me, taking care of others is like fresh water to a wilting plant.

  • mom2bzs

    I love the posts between you and Paul. So powerful. You express yourself so wonderfully Paul.

    I was talking to Robert about this yesterday. It reminded me to tell you.

    When I go to the gym, some of the songs on my Ipod I listen to are Led Zepplin. Showing my age, huh? :o) I always feel and visualize Erik when I listen to music like this. Led Zepplin, Linkin Park, etc. So when I listen to Led Zepplin, I always see Erik playing his electric guitar in my mind. He’s having a great time, as we both enjoy the music!

    Much love to all of you,

    • Led Zepplin was his favorite band! He also loves Rush, AC/DC and others, but Led Zep was his number one!

  • Nina


    I know you may not feel strong, but I look up to you a lot. I can tell by the way you treat people on here that you are an exceptional and enlightened loving little spirit. You don’t judge people and you lift people up. That’s hard to find. To me, you are inspirational. I have a little girl and I see how much love you have for your children…makes me want to be a better mom.
    You’re stronger than you think. I love you, happy little spirit. 😉


    • XOXO, Nina. I love you too!

  • Candsi

    Elisa – by being in the position of the “weak” one (which is hard for me to see you in that light because you always come off as very together to me) maybe you allow others that you love to discover aspects of themselves that may have been hidden away because they never needed to deal with or develop those parts of themselves when you were always the “strong” one. Likewise, you will discover things about yourself in this new place. You know, that thing about crisis and opportunity.

    • Ah, yes! The opposite sides of the same coin! I already see this at work within the family, Candis. But it’s hard for me to experience the comfort from one of my other children when I should be the one comforting them. But I do see them growing because of it and that’s a good thing.

  • Michelle C

    That is hilarious what a prankster our Erik is…. I say ‘our Erik’ cos I have come to think of Elisa, Erik and all of you as family xx

    • Oh, there’s enough Erik to go around for all of us! I love sharing him!

  • Nina

    I swear elisa, I wish you had a “like” button on here like we have on facebook because what Paul wrote was so extraordinary!!!

    • I know!! Paul is great. In fact, each of you has a gift to share with the whole channelingerik family. Where would we be without each other?

  • blush…you are so sweet Elisa! i am just so happy your feeling better! 🙂

  • Happy new year everyone. I thought I would share some information about numerology that I picked up on another blog. Enjoy.

    Number Sequences From The Angelsby Doreen Virtue, Ph.D
    The angels do their best to get our attention and to communicate with us. In this way, they help us heal our own lives. However, we often discount the signs they give us, writing them off as mere coincidences or our imagination. The angels say: “We can’t write our messages to you in the sky. You’ve got to pay attention and believe when you see any patterns forming in your life � especially in response to any questions or prayers you’ve posed. When you hear the same song repeatedly or see the same number sequence, who do you think is behind this? Your angels, of course!”

    Number Sequences
    Your angels often communicate messages to you by showing you sequences of numbers. They do this in two ways. First, they subtly whisper in your ear so you’ll look up in time to notice the clock’s time or a phone number on a billboard. The angels hope you’ll be aware that you’re seeing this same number sequence repeatedly. For instance, you may frequently see the number sequence 111, and it seems every time you look at a clock the time reads 1:11 or 11:11.

    The second way in which angels show you meaningful number sequences is by physically arranging for, say, a car to drive in front of you that has a specific license plate number they want you to see. Those who are aware of this phenomenon become adept at reading the meaning of various license plates. In this way, the angels will actually give you detailed messages. Here are the basic meanings of various number sequences. However, your own angels will tell you if your situation holds a different meaning for you. Ask your angels, “What are you trying to tell me?” and they’ll happily give you additional information to help decode their numeric meanings.

    111 – Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don’t want. This sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form. Are you pleased with what thoughts the universe has captured? If not, correct your thoughts (ask your angels to help you with this if you have difficulty controlling or monitoring your thoughts).

    222 – Our newly planted ideas are beginning to grow into reality. Keep watering and nurturing them, and soon they will push through the soil so you can see evidence of your manifestation. In other words, don’t quit five minutes before the miracle. Your manifestation is soon going to be evident to you, so keep up the good work! Keep holding positive thoughts, keep affirming, and continue visualizing.

    333 – The Ascended Masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help, love, and companionship. Call upon the Ascended Masters often, especially when you see the number 3 patterns around you. Some of the more famous Ascended Masters include: Jesus, Moses, Mary, Quan Yin, and Yogananda.

    444 – The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don’t worry because the angels’ help is nearby.

    555 – Buckle your seatbelts. A major life change is upon you. This change should not be viewed as being “positive” or “negative,” since all change is but a natural part of life’s flow. Perhaps this change is an answer to your prayers, so continue seeing and feeling yourself being at peace.

    666 – Your thoughts are out of balance right now, focused too much on the material world. This number sequence asks you to balance your thoughts between heaven and earth. Like the famous “Sermon on the Mount,” the angels ask you to focus on spirit and service, and know your material and emotional needs will automatically be met as a result.

    777 – The angels applaud you�congratulations, you’re on a roll! Keep up the good work and know your wish is coming true. This is an extremely positive sign and means you should also expect more miracles to occur.

    888 – A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you forewarning to prepare. This number sequence may mean you are winding up an emotional career, or relationship phase. It also means there is light at the end of the tunnel. In addition, it means, “The crops are ripe. Don’t wait to pick and enjoy them.” In other words, don’t procrastinate making your move or enjoying fruits of your labor.

    999 – Completion. This is the end of a big phase in your personal or global life. Also, it is a message to lightworkers involved in Earth healing and means, “Get to work because Mother Earth needs you right now.”

    000 – A reminder you are one with God, and to feel the presence of your Creator’s love within you. Also, it is a sign that a situation has gone full circle.

    • I wonder what 123 means? I get sequences like that a lot: 1234, 234, etc. Thanks for sharing this, Todd! Anyone else have any personal angelic number sequence stories to share?

  • Donna Block

    Happy New Year all,
    I love what you all have to say. I feel so blessed to have found you Elisa and everyone on here. My spirits are always high after I read your comments. God Bless All, Donna

    • God Bless you too, Donna. You are a wonderful friend.

  • Betty

    Many years ago when we were starting a business, I was extremely stressed and began to have pain in two fingers of my hand. I was taking my daughter to a healer at the time. The session wasn’t for me. The healer asked me to sit down. She never touched when she healed. She immediately picked up the pain in my two fingers and said, “You think you are the seamstress of the Universe. That’s giving you pain.” Once I realized that I couldn’t stitch up everything for everybody, I began to give that up. The pain went away. Of course, we “seamstresses” don’t quit stitching immediately as we have been fully addicted to our “sewing” for years. So, Elisa, you don’t have to be the glue (or the seamstress). Let others go to Walmart and buy the E-6000 or Superglue and you can watch on the sidelines for a change. Mixed metaphors. Oh well. XO Betty

    • Another hard lesson: learning to let go of things like roles, control, etc. Love the metaphors, Betty! I see you emailed me but I couldn’t open it in the airport. I’ll check all my emails tomorrow after a good night’s sleep. Love you!

  • Tiffany

    Since I am always cold, I think I would have loved this little prank played on me. 89 degrees sounds rather inviting right about now in our single digit temps here in Idaho! Hi, Elisa, it has been awhile! I have been catching up when I can. I hate getting behind. This year seemed so much busier than others for the holidays. I see you evolving and changing with each new post. The fact that you are aware of your role change and your dislike for it so much, is the first step to changing it when you are ready. Think of your new role as a form of survival. It has protected you to be able to be where you are now. I have learned to honor and thank the positive and negative things in this life, and when I do, especially with the negative, they seem to just dissipate and change to something more desirable. Its amazing! Your role change has taught you what you needed to learn in order to advance to your next role, whatever that may be. There will be a day, and you will know it, when your current role no longer serves you. When that day comes, thank it for giving you knowledge and the ability to grow so you can play the next role that awaits. That is the only way I know how to get out of something. That, and a conscious effort to choose differently to create a new habit. 🙂 I hope all is well and you are blessed this coming year! Happy New year!

    • You’re so right Tiffany. It’s so easy to forget that the meaty part of the human experience is the negative. I should embrace its guidance and it’s power to define and change. I’ve missed you, girl! Just got back home an hour ago and jet lagging badly!

  • epeavey

    Paul that was beautifully said and incredibly powerful! I agree completely. Elisa, in time you will become stronger, less vulnerable, and will begin to resume your prior role as matriarch. It will never be the same though, I am assuming the strength within your family will be shared by more, evenly divided more than it has been in the past. And with that division of strength, you will be closer than ever before. For now, allow yourself to lean on them. It is probably just as essential for them to be there for you as it is for you to have someone to lean onto. The spiritual growth you will all encounter from this will be astronomical!

    Much love to you and may this New Year bring an immense amount of joy!!

  • I get a lot of 11s, 22s 7s and 9s. Usually 11-11, 9-11, 7-11, or any number preceding 22.

  • Skoshi

    Good morning. That gold ball of light energy came to me twice this morning. The first time I said, “Erik, is that you? Good morning.” It was back a couple of minutes later and I said, “Erik, your Mom is in Norway. Go to her. She needs you.” And it disappeared.

    It left me wondering if Erik has any insight from the Unfettered Life into all the conflicts couples are experiencing (maybe not more now than in the past)? People can’t seem to stay together. I was sad recently when I read an interview Richard Gere gave in August where he said he was distressed because his marriage was in trouble. I guess now it’s ended. I thought, if people who have the same world view and have worked so much on getting insight into themselves can’t get along, what chance does the average person have? Brothers are fighting with brothers, sisters with sisters, parents with their adult (and not so adult) children, etc. What does Erik have to say about it?

    Speaking of numbers, Todd, did anyone else see the History International channel program about ETs Thursday night (9 p.m. EST)? They interviewed 2 men who were officers in the military in Germany 30 years ago. They came across as very credible, reasonable, and grounded. An unidentified craft landed near a military base there, and authorities sent them out to investigate. They saw a triangular craft that left markings on the ground when it left; one fellow said when they looked at it, he expected to find USAF written on the side, but there was some kind of unrecognizable hieroglyph, which he copied down in his notebook. When he touched it, he saw a flash of light, and doesn’t remember anything after that. But at the time, in addition to the symbols and a drawing of the craft with measurements, he wrote 6 pages of zeros and ones in his notebook, not having any idea what the numbers meant or how he came by them. Of course, now adays, looking at the notebook, we immediately recognize computer code. Investigators recently gave the code to a computer programmer (why they waited 30 years is beyond me!). The programmer said he expected it to translate as gobbledigook, but it translated as:

    “Exploration of Humanity for Contin[uous] Advance[ment]”

    and it gave map coordinates for a spot about 100 miles out in the Atlantic off the west coast of Ireland. According to Celtic myth, that is the location of Hy Breasal (pronounced Hi Brazil), but many believe it is the location of a sunken island because there is a good-sized island there on medieval maps. In Celtic legend, a highly advanced group of people lived on the island, having left mainland Ireland to live in peace away from the wars and conflict going on in Europe. Of course, believers in ETs said on the program that perhaps there were advanced people there who left earth and have been coming back in craft to check on the progress of humans. The program said this 30 year old code could be the “smoking gun” (proof of extraterrestrial life) researchers have been looking for. Anyway, History International will repeat the program Thursday at 8 and have another new program about ETs at 9. I’m going to try to catch it.

    • That’s a good question to ask Erik, Skoshi! I bet there are many parts to the answers. Maybe long ago, it was more difficult to have couple’s problems because the wife didn’t work and couldn’t survive as well without that financial support. Also there are religious and cultural issues at play. On a spiritual level, I’m wondering if, given the coming Awakening, some individuals are evolving at an accelerated rate in order to honor their spiritual contract in regards to bringing enlightenment to the world. Perhaps their partners have spiritual contracts that help prepare them for that role, but they aren’t directly involved in the Awakening, so they don’t evolve in the same way or at the same rate. Maybe the adversity/challenges between couples are the duality we need to propel us into this enlightenment. I’m thinking as I type so this might just be a load of crap, but I’ll ask. The computer code thing is so cool! Why don’t these things reach intense public attention????

  • Denise

    I have recently been watching “I Survived… Beyond and Back” on tv, reading Conversations with God and this blog…boy, talk about echoes. To have so many sources agree means it must be true, not that I ever doubted. I also realize that others(family) still cannot see these things so clearly because they can’t, won’t, or aren’t supposed to yet. Now when I think of the transition from here to there I see a wall of mist is the only thing separating us.
    I must also say that Conversations with God is the most boundary shattering book(s) I have ever read. I am on my second go round and still get gobsmacked at times. (or is that godsmacked?)

    • Isn’t it great!? I also like Walsch’s book, At Home with God cuz it focuses on transition. Pretty cool and an easier read I think.

  • iola

    Welcome home Elisa. Paul says things in a way that I cannot begin to. I just wanted to pass on something Andrew told me during our session…he said ‘you dont have to be the hero all the time, Mom. Let someone else be hero sometimes. Btw, did you find out if he and Erik were snowboarding? That made my day. love you all

    • Yes, I asked Kim and she said it was really Erik and Andrew!! She says Erik teases him by calling him Drew.

  • Paul Conklin

    Dear Elisa and Everyone,

    Thank you all for your upbuilding comments. I am grateful that I have found so many kindred spirits and I am happy to offer my unconditional love to you all.

    Some persons here were asking about the number sequences that we sometimes see. Since we cannot communicate directly with our destiny guardians or guardian angels and midwayer friends they prompt us at times to recognize a certain number. Todd posted the number sequences from Doreen Virtue and those number sequences are helpful.

    Before my son Jim died I kept seeing eights all over the place. It wasn’t until he got sick that I looked back at that and saw that as a warning from my angels as to what was about to transpire.

    Now Elisa when you see the numbers 1234 your angels are telling you that you are making spiritual progress and they are proud of you. You are a very deep, loving and caring person. You give of yourself freely without thought of gain. That despite what you have endured for over a year now. I for one am grateful.

    Now, we use words that spell out names to identify ourselves. That is understandable to us, but the celestial realm uses numerical sequences as their form of identification. The midwayers will identify themselves as abc the first, def the first and so on. I suspect that the letter sequence is more for us than it is for them.

    The seraphic guardians are our guardian angels. These angels take on the feminine form, but they are not female. When they are created they are created in pairs. Typically, one part of the pair will be more agressive and the other pair more passive. Now, these angels are identified with a long numerical identification.

    Jeannie told me that the name of my guardian angel is Gabriella. But remember that name is a composite name, because there are actually two individuals working together to help their human charge move forward spiritually. These angels are mathematical prodigies. They would astound us with their mathematical wizardry. But deep inside they are the sweetest, kindest, tenderest, most loving beings that we could ever have.

    I have two angel stories that are funny and touching, yet it shows how pathetic I am. It seems that the only way that my angels get my attention is through food.

    One morning a few years ago I went to dunkin donuts to by a dozen. (Really, really sad, I know) Now the dozen donuts at the time only cost about six dollars or so. The female cashier rang up the total and it was exactly 7.77. 777 is the angels congratulating you and telling you to keep up the good work.

    The strange thing is that I looked at the female cashier and she looked at me and we wordlessly thought, “What just happened?” She knew that she had rung up the 5.99 and it rings up 7.77. I just laughed because I knew that my angels were getting my attention.

    I am now writing a book and I have a few chapters written. I was wondering if what I was writing was good, so I put it out there for my angelic friends. I went to Walmart to pick up some mouse traps. But before getting there I stopped at McDonald’s for breakfast. (Will anybody help me I have a real problem. It is really, really sad)

    Well, I sat down to eat, but I dropped one of my utensils on the floor. I stooped to pick it up and there was a white feather on the floor right below my left hand. It was not there when I sat down. I picked it up and thought that was cool. I took the white feather and stuck it in my left hand coat pocket.

    The next day I went to retrieve the white feather and it was gone. That was really cool! So, our angels and midwayer friends will use various means to get our attention. Sometimes it will be through numbers and sometimes through objects. The main reason is to get our attention and to tell us that they love us and are proud of us. Remember that they have lived a long time. We are like children to them and they have a deep love in their hearts for us.

    I would like to say one more thing to my dear friend Elisa. You have a broken heart and I have a broken heart. When you take two broken hearts and unite them together they are no longer broken. The two broken hearts fuse together and heal. They become one heart, fused, healed, beating as one.

    It is no accident that we have been brought together as well as all the rest because we came here to heal. Our angels saw two hearts in pieces so they picked up the broken parts and fused the two together. Now that the two parts are whole the hearts may beat with soundness once again.

    I send my love to you Elisa and to all of the Erik family. Our hearts may have been broken, but they have been repaired by the unconditional love of our destiny guardians and our dear Erik.


    • Dearest Paul, reading this comment, again the tears (of happiness) flow. (Do you have that affect on people or what? (grin)) Where did you find out all of that information about the midwayers and seraphic guardians? I’d love to learn more about that too!

      I so unconditionally cherish and love you, Paul. I agree we are all united as family now and forever, hopefully to achieve something good for humankind or at least to create a bit of momentum in the right direction. I could go on and on, singing my praises for you and others, but I’m getting hungry and need to make a quick run to Taco Bell. (heehee)

    On the 30 year old computer code thing, I know scientists can determine the age of paper and ink. I wish someone with $ would step up and offer to have the notebook scientifically tested…it would be good if there were photos or video (8 mm?) of him and the notebook from 30 years ago too. Wouldn’t it be good to get this whole thing settled?

    • Yeah, it would. I think it’d be a freaking breakthrough no one could ignore.

  • epeavey

    Todd I’ve often wondered about numbers as well, but really have no idea as to the meaning behind them. I was born on 11/17 and for a number of years (and on occasion today) I glance up at the clock and see the time is 11:17, sometimes in the morning but usually it is in the evening. I don’t know if that means anything but I wonder. My husband was also born on 7/7/70, and turned 7 on 7/7/77. I am sure this has some meaning. Any ideas?

    Happy New Year Elisa!

    I want to express my most loving gratitude for everything you have done with this blog over the last year.

    You, Erik and the wonderful mediums you work with have provided the most comforting confirmation that there is so much more after we leave this earthly plane that I feel even more compelled to live this earthly life to the fullest – enjoy every day with the ones I love; travel to new places; try new things.

    I know for sure that what waits for me is nothing less than perfect peace – so I’m going to do my best to make the absolute most of the time I have here.

    What an amazing gift this is for me and the entire family assembled here to share support and love.

    Thank you again and I send you very best wishes for a year filled with healing and love.

    Love – XOXO


    • True, not many people take something like this little ol’ blog and try to transform aspects of their lives. Dang, Girl, you da bomb. You’re really a loving and evolved spirit. Glad you’re family. What an amazing gift you are for US!

  • True

    I’m merely a student here – you are the teacher and the source of light and inspiration – that would make you Da BOMB 😉



    • We’re all students and teachers, i guess. Both are fun!

  • Hi Epeavey,

    I’ve wonder about the numbers every day since I see the sequences every day. I used to be skeptical of numerology but the other day I finally gave in and just paid $40 for one of those personalized 12 month forecasts. So far I am pretty impressed with what I’ve read. I guess only time will tell if there is anything to it.

    If you really want to know what is with the synchronicity in your life regarding those numbers, take a chance and get a numerology reading.

  • Hi all, I have done numerology on my name (birth name LATIKA TRIPATHI) twice and finally arrived at PURVI BERI (after the second change). I studied numerology on my own for more than 3-4 years thoroughly and finally came to the conclusion that JUST the name change in itself has little or short term positive effects…it does work as the vibration on the correct name is closer to the date of birth vibrations (everything can be reduced to numbers)if a name change is suggested – however if we do not change our INNER beliefs – the name change is futile and has temporary effects as the negative beliefs will override every thing else. It is but one part or step to achieving the harmonious vibrations that are in synchronicity with the divine rhythm of the Universe. I have started using both my names now, without any ‘beliefs’ that the right name is ALL that matters – as I know now my thoughts define everything – so I always keep a postive balance on that…I have been authoring under my maiden name and continue to use Purvi Beri on a daily basis – since a third name change is not legally allowed in India – else I may have just gone back to the birth name to make a point…it took me almost 8 years to figure this out…and it was totally worth it (despite long queues and formalities to get it sorted out TWICE)…because it made me realize that I am the Master if I believe I am…(in a nice way) – as we all are that have come down now to achieve certain objectives…sooner we find that we are on our life path with the Angels always prodding us in the right directions and those numbers (from Angels) are totally an example of how much they love us and to the lenghts they go to to get us to start moving on our pre-birth chosen path…or life purpose.

    Dear Elisa,

    I don’t know if anyone is able to start a new thread so I figured I would just discuss this here. A few months ago I had a session with Jeannie Barnes and she brought my destiny guardians through as well as my son. It was amazing.

    Our guardian angels are seraphim. The seraphim have a very sobering task. They are charged with helping their human charge to become like the Eternal Father. When you feel the chords of truth, beauty and goodness flowing through your heart you can be sure that your destiny guardians are responsible.

    The destiny guardians are created in pairs. One of the pair is more aggressive and the other pair is more passive, more retiring. They work in concert to help their human child to progress spiritually. For those of us that have reached out to become more spiritual we have a great reward awaiting us. When we die we will meet our destiny guardians and see them face-to-face. We will ascend together to the Paradise Father of us all.

    I learned that the name of my guardian angel pair is Gabriella. Our destiny guardians reflect the feminine part of their natures, thus the reason for the feminine name. Gabriella is a composite name for two persons. Gabriella told me things that were mind blowing that I will not share at this time. I had been having a series of dreams with a similar theme. It kept happening several times. I would say this recurring dream theme happened about eight or so times.

    Anyway, after I heard these wonderful things through Jeannie I wrote a poem to my destiny guardian pair Gabriella. It is entitled Dear Gabriella and I wanted to share it with you. By the way, all of you here have your own seraphic guardian pair. When you die you too will meet them and ascend to meet the Father together. Awesome.

    Here is the poem:

    Dear Gabriella,

    Have you ever tried to say ‘thank you,’ but you know that those words are wholly inadequate? It is like trying to thank the blooming flower for its beauty and sweet aroma. Each day the scents from that flower follows you no matter where you go. There are times when the remembrance of that flower becomes dim in ones memory, but there in the back of one’s mind its beauty ever calls out, “Do you hear, do you hear me?”

    Have you ever stumbled in the dark, tripping over every obstacle put in your path? While lying on the pavement no one can tell whether or not the wetness is from the rain or from the tears that fall from your eyes. But then a hand is extended there in the dark and a voice is heard: “Please take, please take my hand.” “For my child as you fall and land unto the ground, you will rise, you will rise again.”

    Have you ever discovered that a stranger loved you more than you loved yourself? Can anyone tell me, can anyone tell me what it all means? Will you guide my steps in this life as I grope and reach for, grope and reach for that intangible. In another realm, strange to my eyes lives the perfect duo, tenderly calling to me, “Dear child, weep not, for we shall ever be, ever be here.”

    They tell me that their name is Gabby, Gabriella. Dear Gabriella hear me, please hear me. Down here below upon this sphere of broken hearts and sorrow joy can be found . For you surrounded me with love supreme and promises sweet. For you lifted me from the bitter cancer of despair and rose me up to the sublime heights of a spirit, of a spirit that dwells in the hearts of all mankind.

    You may think that this was just your job son, just a job. You may think that this was your duty, just your duty. But what is this life that we live? What is it that you have been called to perform. With precise balletic moves you dance with such passion, the passion of unconditional love. With flawless execution you sway to the rhythms of love in motion, love in motion.

    Dear Gabby, Gabriella, when the Father looks down upon you he exclaims that you are a precious, a precious jewel. Your sparkle has jumped multi-dimensionally to slough off the imperfections in a developing diamond. One day, one day soon, this diamond in the rough will gaze upon your eyes. With moisture from the 3d realm the tears will flow like a river to all those down below awaiting the refreshing waters of someone that has been, that has been there.

    Have you ever tried to say ‘thank you,’ when those words rung so hollow? For if I could write those words upon the sky so that the whole world could see, could see those words, still those words would ring hollow. Oh Gabby, Gabriella we are just starting, just starting the eternal adventure together. Will you take the hand, take the hand of this grateful mortal. Let us fly together, fly together to insurmountable heights.

    Have you ever tried to say I love you and those words fall like a boulder over a cliff? Words are mere marks of black and white. But love is written in the heart and cannot be erased. Oh Gabby, dear Gabriella please hear the words, hear the words not from my mouth, but from the words written upon my heart, for I love you. Oh Gabby, dear Gabriella see these words etched upon my soul. Dear Gabby, dear Gabriella, I love you. Dear Gabby, dear Gabriella let us fly together, fly to the inaccessible heights of infinity where our Father dwells, awaiting in anxious anticipation.


    • Hey Paul, I had a session scheduled with Jeannie this morning but her number is changed and the message said she’s out for a few days for personal reasons. I know her parents are elderly and she’s been having to fly out and take care of them from time to time, so I hope all is okay.

      I love your heartfelt poem. When Jeannie first placed me in touch with my main guardian angel, Veronica, I felt this enormous sense of love welling up in my heart and I choked up. I could feel that amazing connection. I try to remember to thank her every day (for putting up with the challenge that is me!)

    Fancy Erik’s fave band being Led Zeppelin!
    That is Neil’s favourite band. Robert Plant was born in the same town as us in Staffordshire, England and he also lost a child in tragic circumstances.
    On the banks of Loch Ness is a house – Boleskine House – that was once owned by Alistair Crowley who was an infamous devil worshiper. (His pic is on the cover of the Beatles Seargeant Pepper’s album – third from left at the top).
    Anyway, years after Crowley’s death, Jimmy Page bought the house. Robert Plant said he shouldn’t because of the bad residual energy. Shortly afterwards, Robert’s daughter drowned in a swimming pool and he always blamed Jimmy for buying that house.
    After her death, Robert bought a house close to ours in the Highlands to hide away from the world while he grieved. The people he bought from are aquaintences of ours and Robert still keeps in touch with them. He was so grateful for their discretion during that terrible time while he hid away.
    Neil would love to speak with him when he next visits our friend, just as one bereaved dad to another. Nothing to do with the fact that he idolises Led Zep at all!

    • Fascinating story! Maybe Erik can find Robert’s daughter and bring her to him. It would sure be an honor for him. Thanks for sharing this with us, Tracy. OOOOOO, I feel the goosebumps, left leg–that’s Erik saying, “Hell, yeah, I will!”

  • Paul Conklin

    Dear Elisa,

    I know what you are talking about. I felt that same love in my own heart when my guardian angel was talking with me.

    What I learned today is that we earn the right to a guardian angel through our own strivings. When we reach a certain level of spirituality we are assigned a destiny guardian. Or I should say a seraphic pair because we actually receive two angels. Now we end up giving two beings major headaches not just one. (wink)

    We go through the seven physic circles. The first step is actually the seventh step, then to the sixth, fifth and finally down to the first psychic circle. I think that it is similar to going through grades one through twelve except we are pursuing a degree in spirituality, so to speak.

    When we reach the first psychic circle we are close to uniting with the piece of the Eternal Father that lives in our mind. Enoch was the first one that fused with a fragment of the Eternal One. When that happens we are energized and we leave this world in a blaze of glory. Some people call it chariots of fire.

    Normally to get to the other side we need to die, but there will come a time when natural death will happen less and less. As mankind progresses spiritually more people will fuse with their Father fragment and find themselves on the other side without having to experience natural death.

    The cool thing is that we earn the right to a personal seraphic pair through our own actions. These seraphim volunteer for this assignment. It is a wonderful thing for them to help a human being listen to the heart stirrings of truth, beauty and goodness.

    Gabriella told me that when Jim died my wife and I were surrounded by angels. It was comforting to know that since it was the most heartbreaking experience of our lives. You can be sure that you were also surrounded by your angels and continue to be surrounded. Your seraphic pair loves you dearly and it is obvious to me that you have responded to their training.

    Neither of us wanted this to happen. We would have preferred to learn another lesson. But this is the lesson that we learned. Our destiny guardians allow certain things to happen to us because it allows for greater spiritual growth. We do not like it very much, but the results will be worth it. We will eventually be reunited with our loved ones and we will have grown to become more like the Father.


    • Such painful lessons. I wish I could have just read the Cliff Notes. 🙁

  • Lyn

    Hi all,
    I’ve recently been seeing 1111 more and I’m very interested to learn more about the meanings and messages. Thank you Paul for sharing the meaning of number sequences!

    I recently went to a 1111 website that shares messages from midwayers. I have read on the website the message from several different midwayers that we don’t reincarnate and it is only a one-way trip from this planet. This goes against everything that I know, what I’ve been learning here and what I feel in my being.

    Paul, Elisa, Erik, others, do you have any thoughts about this?

    Thank you all, especially Elisa and Erik for all of your sharing and love.

    Happy New Year to all!

    • Good question, Lyn. It’s on my list of things to ask Mr. Erik!

  • Paul Conklin

    Dear Elisa and Lyn,

    I know that this is a matter that everyone feels strongly about. Some teach that we live here to advance spiritually. We die and then inbetween lives we plan what we will do when we return to the earth to advance our souls further. When we have achieved a certain level of spiritual advancement we will no longer have to reincarnate as human beings.

    I do not personally believe in reincarnation. My only memories are of this life. My first cognizant memory was when I was about three and a half years old. I remember that my mother took me and my brothers and sisters to a strip mall in Pa. Prior to that memory all I can compare it to is blackness. I simply did not exist. I look at this life as my beginning. I start life as a human being, then when I die, I start life as a fledgling soul crafted by my efforts and the efforts of the Eternal Father fragment living in my mind.

    It is my opinion that reincarnation takes us a step backwards rather than progresses us forwards. If one were to really benefit from previous lives, if such were a reality, we should know where we messed up in our previous life. Otherwise our present sojourn would be meaningless. How can we learn something when our memory has been wiped clean? We may be doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

    But I look at human life as grade school. We start out as human beings, the children of the universe. We are playing in the sandbox of time and space. We live this trouble filled life fraught with grief and pain at times until we bloom into a soul of great beauty. This soul building work starts here with the aid of our destiny guardians and our Father fragments. They are working with us to become as one with the Father.

    I have often wondered why the Eternal One would have us start out as mere children of the dust. What is the purpose of all this suffering, grief and pain? Why is love only temporary on this sphere? I believe that we go through this chaotic, hectic, trouble filled life because it results in the greatest soul growth.

    When you have suffered a pain that pierces you through your soul you begin to see things differently. You begin to sympathize with the sufferings of people around you. You begin to love people from your heart. You begin to see things from the Eternal Father’s perspective.

    Lyn, you are being prompted by the midwayers. They have prompted tens of millions of people so far. They can zip in and out of our reality to get our attention then zip back to their reality. Their basic purpose is to draw our attention to the indwelling spirit of the Father. To get us started on the road of our spirituality. They have been here for thirty-seven thousand years and they remember everything that has ever happened to them. They claim that there is no reincarnation, but they respect the belief systems of people. They will not insist that you or anyone else believe in a certain thing. What is important is that we grow and become like our Eternal Father.

    I would like to hear Erik’s take on this. This is a controversial subject, but if we strip away our belief systems we find love residing there. We should love all people regardless of what they believe or what we believe. When the Eternal One looks down from heaven on His children living here he does not see a religion or a belief system. He sees His daughter or son, a human being, whom He loves unconditionally. That is what He wants us to do. To love one another unconditionally. When we begin to do that en masse we will be starting to enter the age of light and life.


    • Maybe this is your first incarnation on earth, Paul. That would explain why you feel like there is no reincarnation. One of my favorite books on this subject is “Children’s Past Lives” by Carol Bowman I was not a believer in the subject AT ALL until I read this book. It discusses the rigorous research of Dr. Ian Stevenson, a man who originally set out to DISPROVE reincarnation, but in fact proved it. It’s hard to fathom given the fact that there is no “time” in the other dimension. Eventually, we’ll know.
