All About Destiny, Part One

Erik really shines on this one. Sorry to start with part one on a Friday, because you’re going to be writhing in anticipation until Monday, but no pain no gain. I also would like to announce that the regular small group channeling call scheduled for 4/11 is sold out, but the griever’s call where Erik will bring forth a loved one for you to communicate with still has one spot open. The date for that is 4/18. Jamie also has the channeling call schedule up for all of her calls at this link: EVENTS

************************

Note: I’m going to start using plain text rather than italics from here on out. (Hopefully I’ll remember). My editor told me it’s easier on the reader’s eyes. Feedback?

Me: Let’s talk about destiny, Erik. Can you talk about the spiritual contracts souls make before incarnating?

(Pause)

Jamie (sternly): Okay, straighten up, Erik. Come on. (To me): Okay, so you want him to tell you about destiny, how it’s planned before reincarnation?

Me: Yeah. I mean, part of it has to do with spiritual contracts, right?

Jamie: Yeah.

Me: So, I thought maybe we’d start out with that.

Erik: First of all, we want to ditch the concept of karma, because people with use the term, karma, as an excuse for the shit they deal with in their life that they don’t feel like they’re responsible for. They’re just experiencing this shit.

Me: Mm hm,

Erik: Okay. There’s really no karma.

Jamie (laughing): He’s making sounds like, “Poo-poo,” and “Blech”, and “Yuck,” and “just get that out.”

I giggle.

Erik: Now, because there’s not karma, and, which means you’re not held by honor or by any greater system to balance your own scale—we have to go back to balancing your own scale which means you have a judgment system in place.

Damn, he’s all over the place.

Erik: It means there is a right and there is a wrong, which there isn’t. There is no judgment scale so there is no karma. Now some people use the eye for and eye. You know, if you caused pain to one person, then you must suffer pain. That definitely has some validity. What you drop into the pond ripples out to the edges and comes back to the place where the pebble was dropped, but it’s not karma. It’s not a punishment program.

Me: Okay.

Erik: Okay. I just wanted to get that out, cuz let’s say you’re choosing to live in a life that still sucks shit and you’re thinking, “Ah I must be paying”—

Jamie: I love that! He’s talking in an old Jewish man voice. Nice.

Jamie laughs.

Erik: “Ah, I must be paying for it because of what I did in another lifetime or what I did to somebody else.” Even though there’s no karma, people still wanna play the victim, because they don’t know how to take responsibility for how the environment is behaving. They feel like they’re not in control over the environment. They’re correct. They’re not in control, but they’re connected to it, and how you choose to perceive it changes how it affects you.

Me: Ah!

Erik: Right? So, you could play the role of the victim, but if you had a really good teacher, I don’t know, say, like myself cuz I’m so awesome—

Jamie (giggling): Erik!

Jamie and I bust into a laugh.

Erik: –come in and say, “Hey, just tweak how you’re looking at what’s happening. Then all of a sudden, you finally feel a part; you’re connected to the environment. It’s no longer a victim circumstance, but a participant one. I wanna know where people get off on labeling themselves (in a whiny voice) the victim, the poor person, you know, the one shit always happens to, they’re cursed, they’re this, but yet they’re really good people and they pray and they’re really positive and they have a really good heart. (Sarcastically) Oh, these poor people! Where do they get off in doing this when they talk all this shit, but they don’t do anything about it? They’re not proactive in their life at all! They pray, (with great sarcasm) “God, please come and take this depression, this sadness, this curse away from me! Oh Great Being of Whomever”—

Me: Erik, you gotta wrap this one up, because we have some questions to go on to!

Erik: Oh, c’mon, Mom! I’m having a good time!

All three of us laugh.

Me: I know, but Jesus Christ, we have other questions, boy!

Erik: Well, that’s great! We’ll get to them!

This century, I hope.

Erik: Just listen.

Jamie chuckles.

Erik: So, they pray to this god to do all of these things for them, but they’re not putting in any action or anything. All right. So, the whole contract thing—

Thank you, Jesus.

Erik: —comes into place when you come into life and you’re choosing whatever situation whether it’s poverty, richness, joy, sadness—neither one is greater than the other—whatever you’re living in—is to help you learn some kind of life lesson that you’re attracted to learning. Is it possible that you’re basing this on another life? Absolutely! I mean, who the fuck says, “I want to learn how to ride a bike. I really fucking wanna learn how to ride a bike”, and then get on the bike once and fall down and hurt themselves and never get on a bike again? That’s stupid!

Me: Yeah!

Erik: So, you get into one life and you say,” I really wanna be a pilot. I really wanna be a pilot”, and you learn how to fly, but you crash, and you die. That really sucks. So, you get into another life. “I really wanna be a pilot. I really wanna be a pilot!” You try it again, man! That’s why we have contracts in place, so that we can hit the certain notes to make our song. Contracts help shape our destinies.

Me: Ah!

    Erik is sooooo spot on here. he states it in a way that really drives home the point that we are responsible for both our contracts and for what we are putting out there with our thoughts and actions on a daily basis. God, but I love hearing him talk!!
    Great post..hope all my CE fam has a great weekend!!

  • Lorraine (LP)

    thanks for sharing the video of your beautiful daughter!
    can’t wait for the rest of this channeling session; so far LOVE IT!

  • Clau_Bueno

    Awwww, Elisa! I loved the video!!!!

    About karma… I’m just finishing a book that calls “karma and reincarnation” from barbara martin. She is a very, very gifted lady and I attend to her classes from the spiritual arts institute. But she defends very strongly the idea of the karma, the good and the bad. That life is a boomerang, that we do here, comes back to us. Everything is based in our actions and how we deal with the situation. And for me, I confess that I am much more attracted to what erik’s already thought us. And about our contracts and agreements. Like that we could come to this life, maybe doing something “bad” (something specific) but it was part or “helping” to something good to come out of it. So, my brain get mixed while I am just trying to see and learn many different point of views…

    Thank you and I can’t wait for the Monday post!
    Enjoy your weekend everyone!
    Tchau for now,
    Claudia

    What if “praying” for shit to happen is what I signed up for? And what if it’s actually working? It’s all about experiencing things in all kinds of ways isn’t it?

    • Good one! If it’s working, then you’re putting action and continuous intention into it. That’s what I think, anyway.

  • dollparts

    It’s not karma, it’s a boomerang.

  • MikeHulse

    Elisa yeah your publisher is right about italics, and I would also say you should be using Verdana font. It was created by Microsoft several years ago to improve readability on monitors. Just my 2 cents 🙂

  • Brandi

    I loved the video! And I totally agree with Erik about karma and taking responsibility for yourself and what’s around you. He’s right. We often tend to be too passive, expecting someone else to come do it for us, to make us feel better. Thanks, Erik, for the reminder! 🙂

  • Liz

    Hahaha I used to have Halloween costumes like that–I can still smell the plastic smock, you know?

  • KarmaYoujustDontUnderstandIt

    There is Karma and there is no Karma is the way wise ones would put it.

    You are God but you are Human, thats how you are incarnated. If you choose to identify with your divinity, no Karma can bind and restrict you. But if you choose to identify as a human mind and body, your Karma can definitely restrict your life.

    Everything that we have ever thought, spoken, done or caused is
    karma, as is also that which we think, speak or do this very moment. Karma is
    not fate, for we act with what can be described as a conditioned free
    will creating our own destinies.Karma is not punishment or retribution but simply an extended expression or consequence of natural acts.

    Karma refers to the totality of our actions and their concomitant reactions in this and previous lives, all of which determine our future. The conquest of karma lies in intelligent action and dispassionate reaction. Not all karmas rebound immediately. Some accumulate and return unexpectedly in this or other lifetimes. Human beings are said to produce karma in four ways:

    through thoughts
    through words
    through actions that we perform ourselves
    through actions others perform under our instructions

    Karma is not fate, for humans act with free will creating their own fate.

    I am a major stressball, and I even developed a stomach ulcer from losing my mind all the time. But these past three or four years, I’ve had this “let’s see how I get out of this one” attitude which has really changed everything… And I kinda have to think that way now cause the ulcer is my stress wall.

    Knowing that this is all to add to your spiritual resume and asking yourself what’s the worst, I mean the utter worst, that can happen makes all the difference.

    Your daughter is amazing, and I laughed at all the things we have in common. I really will have to check out her blog now, even though I’m not into sparkly things.

  • Nice to know! I’ll see if that’s an option on this theme!

    • Ash

      Yeah. San-serif fonts tend to be the standard on the web.

  • Jan Drake Bakke

    Christine is amazing!! Brilliant and beautiful!!! I am so glad you posted this!!! xx

  • Jan Drake Bakke

    I also agree with Erik too here!! Great post!! I do pray alot for things and but try not to compalin too much and feel the victim. I know I do sometimes. I hope he wasn’t thinking of me. I will work harder at not being so victim ish. Don’t need it!!

  • I’ve always wondered about those people you come across in life who are just complete assholes. I just can’t imagine a spirit saying, “for this life I want to be a complete dick to everyone and basically have everyone I know dislike me.”

    Elisa, will you please request that Erik send that blond lady back to my dreams like he did a couple of years ago. 🙂

  • Trisha

    Well I liked the italics…

  • Elisa, your daughter is beautiful. Loved the video 🙂

  • I’ll get right on it, Sir! LOL!

  • Mariolga Locklin

    You asked for feedback on the italics question, so I’ll stick to that here — using regular font for the action will allow you to use italics when you make your side comments every now and then. That’s how italics are typically used in books, as the narrator’s asides.

    • Ah, okay! I’ll try to remember that! I wish this allowed me a choice in fonts.

  • mary wallace

    Elisa, what a beautiful, funny, smart daughter! I think she wants a pomeranian dog:)

  • Elisa, I’m an editor (and a former typesetter) and, while I have gotten used to the italics in your blog posts and actually didn’t mind them as a steady diet — probably because the content of your posts is so amazing — rendering text in roman (meaning upright as opposed to italic) is indeed easier on the eye.

    Save the italics for stressing or differentiating certain words, as one commenter suggested.

    Personally, I like the serif font you’re using — some form of Times Roman — especially for your particular blog.

    P.S. There really are no hard and fast rules when it comes to design. If you like your blog the way it is, stay with it. I certainly will — no matter how it’s rendered. Cheers!

  • Rocci

    Elisa, your daughter is a kick. I love how candid she is on camera and her smile is contagious Erik is awesome since I totally agree with his take on Karma. I am so glad I can give up the Guru’s talk on Karma.

  • Thanks for that! It seems the theme only lets me choose between bold/italics/plain other than various header types, etc.

  • MikeHulse

    Can see where your daughter gets her good looks from Mrs Medhus! 😉

  • LOL! How much do I owe you, Mike?

    • MikeHulse

      Oi Mrs Medhus behave yourself lol You’re just as beautiful as your daughter and that’s who she gets her good looks from. 😉 PS I take American Express and all other major forms of Credit/Debit Cards – joking! x

  • Alphonso de Barbo

    If we ‘come here to learn’ is a contradiction because the higher self already knows what it is that we come here to learn, so face it, it is all just a complete ‘have’.

    • It’s more that we come here to experience. We know things conceptually, but we need to know them experientially. It’s like taking the chemistry lab along with the class.

  • Simon

    Makes sense to me.
