Best of Erik: How ’bout them psychics’

Here are a couple of things that so many people wonder about where psychics are concerned.

Me: Here’s another one from a reader. “How can spirits who speak in foreign languages communicate through mediums who don’t speak that language?”

Erik: You’ve gotta remind people that the medium is a tool.

Me (laughing): Did you just call Jamie a tool! Erik! “Jamie, you’re such a tool!”

Jamie bursts out in laughter.

Erik: So, they’re going to use the tool however the tool knows how to work, right? So if the medium speaks English, they’re going to hear everything that’s coming into them as English.


Erik: It’s like the language of emotions. You don’t have to learn—

Jamie giggles at whatever he just said.

Erik: –the grammar specifics to know how to feel love.

Me: Yeah.

Erik: You can do that beyond language. Communication in the afterlife is beyond language, but when we’re communicating verbally to a medium, they’re going to use the intellect, the knowledge they know to be able to communicate back or to give the message forward. (Putting his arms out, and speaking in mock self-importance) Language is no barrier for me!

Jamie and I laugh.

Me: So, a Spaniard, for example, would communicate to Jamie in ideas and emotions and no words?

Erik: No. He’d communicate to her in Spanish, but she would hear it in English.

Me: Oh, okay. Got it. Got it.

(But not really, come to think of it.)

Jamie: Here’s my two cents. What I’ve found is if there’s not an English word for that Spanish word, I’ll hear in Spanish,

Me: Oh, interesting. Wow.

Jamie: Like when I’m talking to the Japanese clients, we’ll be cruising in English and all of a sudden it’ll be just this foreign word.

Me: Oh gosh. What do you do then?

Jamie: I’ll sound it out and then I’ll ask the spirit, ‘Well, what does it mean?’ And they’ll come talk around it until I get the concept and it’s, ‘Oh, it’s a duh, duh, duh, duh, duh.’

Wow, what foreign language is that?

Me: Why can’t psychics get the right numbers on the lotto and make a killing in the stock marker, and why can’t they predict the future for themselves?

Erik: Such is the curse. Why would you think they’d want to use these abilities to profit? They use them to help. Don’t you choose to put this in or not? (What he’s about to say next)

Jamie (giggling): He’s saying the person that put this information is a little bit of a fool but he means it in an endearing way, because he thinks the question’s good.

Me: A lot of people think that psychics must be frauds because of that.

Erik: He’s an ignorant fool to think that you’d want to use something such as this gift that’s more pure for what humans desire. It’s not always “the humans know what’s right or know better.” There’s an amount of respect that comes with the work. I think they often have dreams with the numbers and then dream that they fucking full on win everything. That’s great, because that’s what they’re needing. That’s what’s their time. (??). But for you to come in and say that you want the lottery numbers and that you can win and do good with the money or do whatever you want with it doesn’t mean that you should fucking win. We’re all trying to stick to a goal that we chose before you came to this earth.

Me: Mm hm.

Erik: Hey, man. I’m not going to be the one to fuck that up. Over a few numbers? Hell no. I’d never live it down over here.

Me: Okay, on the respect side—what if you had a psychic who just really wants the money? Your whole thing is that other spirits aren’t going to give them that money because of your respect, right? For the purity of the—

Erik: Yes!

Me: Okay. Got it. Got it. Is that the same reason why they can’t predict the future for themselves, or can they?

Erik: Sometimes they can see it crystal ass clear.

Jamie laughs, then says, “That came with an image that was pretty funny.”

Me (chucking): I can only imagine.

Erik: And that’s great, because those are the moments that they need to connect to, to show them that they’re ability is, you know, on. Everybody has doubt, I don’t care who the fuck you are in this world. You have doubts about yourself. That’s the human experience. So, even psychics, who can connect to everything, can have doubts that they’re actually doing it.

Me: Oh, sure. I can imagine.

Erik: But for them to walk around with all the answers for themselves, you have to ask yourself why they fucking decided to become alive anyway. The whole point of being on Earth is the mystery of who you fucking are—getting to know yourself, learning about love—those are still applied to those who have the ability to see beyond.


Jamie (chucking): He’s making wiseass joke. (Whispering mysteriously) “Beyond the veil.” Like a bad magician. Ta da!

Erik: It’s beyond what humans can see. It sounds like this guy—

Jamie (to Erik, sternly): Uh uh.

Erik: It sounds like this guy is fucking jealous, really.

Me: Might be. So, how can psychics peer into the future? Is it because there’s no time?

Erik: Because time doesn’t exist. Yep.

Me: Okay.

Erik: Well, at least not linearly.

Me: Yes. Exactly.

    To Jamie and erik. You just don’t know how much I get from your postings! Well I guess you do Erik! The information is simply golden to me, being a medium in progress, in classes for mediumship. I learn even more from you at times then from my classes. Well at least just as much! Thank you, thank you!!!!!!

    so what would happen if a medium was given a written question in a language they didnt understand? Can the spirit see this question, so without the medium having to read it the spirit will tell the medium the answer? Ive come across this a few times and in all instances the medium couldnt give an answer as they couldnt understand the written question

    • ..Princess Maxine Lane..

      i’m sure the spirit would read the question and tell the medium what it says also if there was an answer they would supply the answer to why you asking? x

    I don’t have a problem in believing in Jamie & Eric’s communication, because I have read about other Psychic-Medium’s abilities and beliefs. My husband thinks I’m being influenced by the devil… I have never had any interest in reading the Bible, because I wanted to know God in a way that wasn’t driven by fear and judgment ( I was raised Catholic, but started to question it as a teen). My husband has read the Bible twice and is deeply influenced by a highly educated preacher. I told him that Erik has filled in the dots that other Psychic-Mediums haven’t been able to do for me. My husband believes that if you committ suicide, that there is no way you would be in heaven with all these answers. The biggest problem my husband had was with Jesus living into old age! He said THAT is blasphemous. I asked him why the rock was moved when it was discovered he was gone. According to the Bible, Jesus was able to go through walls after his death. Why would a rock need to be moved in order for him to leave…
    I don’t have a desire to shake his belief in Jesus, but would love to be able to talk to him about Erik’s afterlife information, so he could stop talking about doomsday and how God is only saving those that believe in Jesus. It’s such a hateful message….

    Hi Elisa,Eric and Jamie, just wanted to say great job on the book My life after death !! I am truly amazed and grateful for the context and YouTube videos. You truly saved my life and possibly my sons, as I was literally “at the end of my rope” with him. Being a parent is the hardest job on earth !! Why don’t kids come with instructions??? Lol. What do you think about this tough love parenting. Doesn’t feel right, and there has to be a better way of teaching our kids. Anyway, a big Thank You from me !!
