I had the coolest session with Kim and Erik this morning. At the advice of blog member and dear friend, Steve Trask, I asked Erik to bring in my Higher Self. First of all, I had a bone to pick with her. Why, girl? Why did you throw your mini me to the wolves? It was so enlightening, and I think each and every one of you should have Erik bring your Higher Self forward to channel. There’s so much to learn. I asked my Higher Self what she thought about Erik, and she said so many things that make me even prouder of him. I can’t wait to share the YouTube, but one thing I will put out there as a teaser is that his energy is very close to that of an archangel. That’s incredible!
Many of you weren’t able to afford or didn’t want to buy a copy of the Sedona Journal of Emergence in order to see if your questions to Erik were answered or not. Since it’s been several months, I thought I’d share the first edition of the column to give you a taste of how valuable his answers are. If you submit a question in the future, I urge you to pick up a copy in most any bookstore, especially the metaphysical bookstores (which are always pretty cool anyway,) order one HERE or subscribe to the magazine. It’s really meaty and full of enlightening information. Ideally, it would be wonderful to write a column for a magazine that’s free and fully supported by advertising, but those seem to be far and few between. I’m posting this column over two days. Enjoy Part One. Even if your questions are not here, I’m sure you can glean something valuable from the answers.
Ask Erik is a spiritual advice column from the eternally twenty-year-old spirit guide, Erik Medhus. Through gifted medium/spirit translator, Kim Babcock, he directly answers readers’ questions on death, the afterlife, spirituality, the human experience, and more with the insight and wisdom he’s gained since his passing.
Thank you so much for the amazing work that you are doing. I’ve been praising your blog and YouTube videos to everyone. Erik has pranked me, and I’ve also spoken with him during one meditation. Wow, he speaks a lot! Here are my questions:
- Why can’t my girlfriend find a restaurant place and start working for her dream and passion? She has been looking for a spot over a year now, and when we finally found one, someone else got it (with more money.) Is this what she is supposed to be doing or are we just not supposed to move to Turku in Finland?
- I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with my life, and now, after losing our apartment and not working, I would like to ask about my life purpose or at least what I’m supposed to do for a living for the next 5 years
Thank you so much Elisa, Erik and Jamie
Much love and light from Finland
Where you’re looking is not the right location, and it’s not the right time. The time is near, though. It’s the right purpose for her to be in the restaurant business and everything that falls under that umbrella, but you need to move to a town that’s more rustic. Your girlfriend needs to live in a rustic environment in order to put herself out there in a way that’s true to who she is. Good things will happen when she’s more comfortable in her own skin and more authentically herself.
As for your life’s purpose, first, when you have things stripped away like that, unemployed and without a place to call your own, nothing on the outside gives you satisfaction, so you’re forced to reflect inwardly more. You need to look within yourself to find security instead of looking for that in the external world. You’ve had trouble with this in other incarnations, so you designed this life in a way that would help you learn to find the security you need internally, not externally. People often think, “Oh, I have a comfortable home, and that provides security.” Well sure it does, but you have to find security inside first. These recent events are gifts that offer you this valuable lesson.
You’re a good cook, so you need to use that talent in the restaurant business. You’ll work with your girlfriend at the restaurant in the beginning, but then she will move on to something else.
Hello Dr. Medhus,
My name is Umasankar, and I’m from North Carolina. Thank you for starting this Ask Erik column. I discovered the Channeling Erik website last year around this time, and since then I am hooked. I am no rookie to matters concerning the afterlife and the spiritual, but I feel I have more clarity and understanding after stumbling upon your website. Thanks a lot for it. Here are my questions for Erik.
- My right hip has been aching for over a month. I have been to the doctors, and they suspect it is a groin strain, and I am following their advice, but my hip pain is taking time to recover, and the pain comes and goes. It is frustrating as I am not able to carry on with my duties. Can you ask Erik if I am on the right road to recovery and what else I should be doing for a full recovery?
You need herbal remedies that attack internal inflammation. I’d start taking turmeric and drinking Chaga tea daily. I always want to talk about the spiritual side of shit, you know, so here it is. You’re not only limited physically, you’re limited spiritually. This reduced mobility you have because of your hip is your soul’s way of telling you to become more independent and mobile, spiritually. In other words, your spiritual immobility is manifesting as physical immobility. If you want to get well faster, move forward in your spirituality. When I talk about spiritual mobility, I mean progress in your search for spiritual understanding and share it with your family. Don’t be afraid to share your experiences and beliefs, and don’t be afraid to dive deeper to gain more spiritual awareness. 2. What is my spiritual contract? I have been trying to find it myself but am unable to come up with any concrete ones. It would be great if I can get it from the horse’s mouth himself.
You’re a guide. You’re here to share what you learn about spirituality as you’re learning it, particularly with your family.
- My mother recently had a stroke, and she is on her way to recovery. Can you also ask Erik if she has to do anything more for her to regain her old strength?
The answer here is pretty similar. Strokes hamper mobility, so your mother is in the same situation as you are in. The only thing your mother has to do to physically regain her strength is to believe that she can. That’s hard for her, but believing in your own power is a huge spiritual milestone. When she does that, she’ll be moving forward, spiritually and physically.
- What is the deal with my brother? It is very difficult to get through to him, and any attempts made end up only with more frustration on my side.
Frustration comes from expectation. When you want to get through to somebody and you expect them to react in a certain way, it doesn’t always work, so drop the expectations first. You’ll be less frustrated. Also remember that everybody has their own personal journey. Whatever your brother is going through, if he’s meant to experience it, he will, and you have to allow that. If he’s going to experience A, B, C, and D, you have to let him. As hard as you try to get through to him, it isn’t going to fucking work. All you can do is provide support along the way.
- Final one! Ever since I started reading My Life After Death: A Memoir from Heaven, a sparrow comes and taps on my front window almost every day. Can you please confirm with Erik that it is him who is saying, “Hi?”
Yeah, that’s me. I send many animals and insects to let people know I’m around. Some people can’t handle certain signs like when I make the lights flicker, when I manifest in front of them, physically or when I do other things that are pretty loud. Some people can handle that shit; some people can’t. I’ll send animals and insects to the people who can only deal with the subtler signs.
Once again thanks a lot for all you are doing and bless your heart.
Now for another stellar review of Erik’s book, My Life After Death. Buy your own copy today! It’s just ten bucks and change.
I sometimes laughed and sometimes cried and sometimes did both at the same time! Loved this book and couldn’t put it down. Erik gives us great lessons/advices for all us, emotional beings, on how to make the most of our time on this earthly plane.
Erik and Mrs. Medhus; you are doing an amazing job!
