Children Spirits

Happy Monday everyone! I’m still transcribing my first session with Robert as well as the Ask Erik answers to the winner of that submission. It takes a long time with these fingers which, for some reason, seemed to have turned into nubs with a mind of their own or fat little Vienna Sausages that can’t seem to avoid typing 2 to 3 keys at once. Indecisive wieners. Hmm. 

Of course, children have always been so dear to my heart even after raising five of them through the teenage years. That’s why anything Erik says about child spirits perk my interest. Erik adored children so much. The last joy he had just 30 minutes or so before he took his life was playing peek-a-boo with his niece, Arleen, through the posts along the stairwell. It was a half-hearted attempt at best.


Me: How are children’s souls treated when they die? Do they grow up there? Can they be any age they want including an adult, and who takes care of them? Maybe I should have done these one at a time, but go ahead. Let’s see what you remember.

Jamie (giggling): First he made a smart-ass comment that I refuse to say!

Erik: Children are treated like spirits. They’re treated like anyone else that passes away.

Jamie: The only difference he can think of is if the child–


Jamie (to Erik): So we could say… Give me some examples.

Erik: Okay. If the child’s spirit is a baby and dies very young or dies in the belly from miscarriage or abortion, cord strangulation, stillbirth, anything like that, that’s such a short life.

Jamie (to Erik): What’s a short life?

Erik: Pretty much from zero when the spirit decides to enter the body and I’ll say five. Five years old.

Jamie: He calls that a short life.

As a parent who’s lost a son, I say when I survive my child, theirs is a short life.

Erik: A short life means that the child hasn’t been influenced by the culture or society to let go of the beliefs that they came in with.

Me: Mm hm.

Erik: So, their connection to the afterlife is still pretty strong. If they’re passing from five and below, they pretty much know their shit, so when they get back, everyone’s like, “Hey, you’re here again! How have you been?” And they have that calmness, that knowingness, that familiarity. There’s really zero trauma. Zero trauma.

Yeah, for them, but…

Erik: Because they’re like, “I was just here! Hey!”

Me: It’s like one of those revolving doors in a high rise.

Erik: Yes, and, if they choose, they can stay that age or they can grow from that age and grow with the family annually to be a part of them. For me, I like being my age. I think I’m staying this way. In fact I think that if I got older, I’d look pretty stupid cuz my maturity level is not going to go beyond what it is right now.

Jamie and I laugh.

Me: That’s probably true!

Jamie: So, he would look like he didn’t have all his marbles together.

Me: Who said he did?

(Pause as Jamie smiles and moves her head and body as if she’s either trying to follow Erik’s movements.)

Jamie (to Erik): What are you doing?


Jamie: He’s checking his pockets. He’s pretending to dig through his pockets to find his marbles as proof to you that he had them all.

Me (chuckling): That’s a good one. All right, so, what about babies when they cross over? Does somebody have to take care of them if they want to, if they want to remain a baby?

Erik: Yeah, if they want to stay a baby and grow, it’s not like in humans though, Mom. It’s not like they need to be fed or they need to be dressed or they need to be protected.

Me: But nurtured, right?

Erik: Sure. Nurtured. Absolutely. But the things that you think of like sleepless nights and rocking and stuff like that, that’s not what we mean when we’re babied.

Me: Okay.

Erik: It’s kind of like, just thinking of it in terms of size, just being small or simple. Simplicity. Then we grow into accepting more knowledge.

Me: Who takes, uh, is there a place like a nursery where they take care of them or do the deceased relatives take care of them or what? I mean, they just don’t go crawling around with a diaper on out in the ethers!

Erik: No, no, no. No diapers needed. Wherever they think they want to be, they go. They have the same intelligence as an independent spirit would in the afterlife. They’re not helpless. They are not helpless at all.

Me: Okay.

Erik: They can communicate. They might not have had the English language on Earth, but they can speak loud and proud as soon as they let go of their body!

Me: Okay.

Erik: There’s nothing that’s being mistranslated. What they might want, like you said, is nurturing, companionship.

Me: Yeah.

(My retorts show that I have a great deal of contribution to the conversation.)

Erik: Commonly, it’ll be from those who have passed away in that family structure, that lineage. If that’s not there, it’s the guides of the parents.

Me: Okay.


Erik: So, the family unit still stays together until time passes, and then that child can decide, are they going to stay and kind of—

Jamie (to Erik): Linearly? Is that a word? Lin-e-ar-ly. (She over-pronounces the word as if to keep herself from stumbling over it. Sometimes when Jamie channels, it’s like she forgets words. That’s because they go straight from the spirit through her mouth, bypassing the brain. She rarely remembers any part of these sessions.)

Erik: —play out that life with the family that they tried to come [into], or are they going to kind of remove their energy from it and place themselves into another lifetime?

Me: Okay. Interesting. Now, why are children and babies and pets—why are they able to see spirits sometimes, and why does that eventually fade away? I suppose they fade away because they—at least the children and babies—get indoctrinated by the parents, right?

Erik: Yep. They tell them, “Good!” “Bad!” “That’s not right!” “That’s wroooonnnng!”

Jamie laughs.

Me: Well, why are they able to see spirits?


Erik: Pure energy.

(Long pause)

Me: Can you make that a whole sentence, please!

Erik: Cuz they’re not getting fucked up or mucked up by other belief systems.

Me: So, everybody, who doesn’t, uh, I mean if I didn’t have a belief system and wasn’t all messed up or “tainted” would I be able to see spirits?

Erik: Yeah.

Me: Like babies do?

Erik: Yes.

Me: Okay. Interesting.

Erik: That’s why pets, cats and dogs, continue to do it. Because they don’t sign up for our belief system.

Me: That’s true. I see my cats; they look up into this empty space and purr or keep following something with their eyes. Same thing with Bella, my dog. She’ll bark at the stairway even though it’s empty. Nobody’s there, except maybe Erik.

Erik: That’s me.

Me: Of course it is!

    Aww, little 3-lb Bella, and you’re her mommy 🙂
    My niece and nephew used to look at my crown chakra and smile…

    i have many child souls around me – i spent a lot of time with Caylee Anthony last night (they like to come out more at night and will wake me up at 3 am sometimes, occasionally i tap into their fears and receive nightmares so we will get up and walk them off and play to reassure them and myself ;)) Jonbenet is a spunky spirit, she and heather o’rourke come around quite often, jonbenet likes to hide in my bathroom and helps me get ready for work. i had noticed a young brunette quietly hanging around in the last few months. i finally figured out it was caylee – erik works with her :).

  • Jaime Baxter

    a cool story of mine: my mother’s side of the family is strict catholic. when we lived in louisiana we attended private school (as everyone on that side of the family has) i have an uncle who’s a deacon in the church (also gay if i had to speculate :)) i have second cousins who are nuns, i used to want to be one but didn’t want to miss out on relationships with men lol. anyway my grandparents had a daughter, Sharon Angelle Fontenot. She was born on Dec 28,1958, the day recognized by catholics as the Holy Innocents day where infants died at the hands of those looking to kill baby jesus ( my grandparents had the situation of opposing blood types. sharon had many complications because of this – underwent 2 surgeries, had needles placed in her tiny head like a crown, suffered intense digestive issues (her stomach would balloon up) my grandparents were present during the surgeries holding her hand not allowing themselves to cry. because of the pain she was in and the bleak outlook (i spoke to my grandmother about this a couple of months ago – my grandpa doesn’t really allow her to speak about it, i wanted to know her birthdate and passing date so i’m just adding this info to the whole picture for myself) so my grandparents knelt down to pray the night before mother’s day and told God to take her if he needed her and they didn’t want her to suffer any longer. She died the next day on mother’s day 1959. because of the condition she was born in and all the tests and issues she went through, the doctors were able to figure out how to give a blood transfusion to allow the fetus to acclimate (i’m not 100% on the process so i hope this makes some sense) this allowed my mother to be born in 1960 followed by 4 more children (my catholic side has large families). i was the first granddaughter (my brother was the first grandchild. his bday is 10/21/79 mine is 10/20/80. my other sibling my sister was born 5/27/84 my maternal grandma is 5/28) i was born with a birthmark that resembles an angel on my right shoulder. since i was a little girl i would say – it’s my guardian angel and i would wonder if it was sharon. what i’ve been told since speaking with the other side is that i am sharon (funny cus my mom has always been competitive with me like a sister and very affectionate with and favored my little sister). i came back to change the oppressive influence in my family. this makes sense to me because the only reason i ever share anything personal or creative is because i am aware that the many little catholic cousins (and my sister) i have foliowing behind are paying attention and i want to give them an alternative or at least show them not to be afraid of not conforming. the saddest thing for me is to see my grandma grieve over sharon (she keeps a bassinet of dried flowers below a picture of sharon) i want to say “i’m right here” my family has shunned me since i told them i speak to God, i don’t think they deem me worthy because i’m not a christian (though i do know christ :)). that way of thinking is what motivates me more to just be what i am and not fall into the same trap. i’ve gotten close again to my grandparents recently though i don’t know if i’ll see them again before they pass, but i know i’ll be able to welcome them to heaven 🙂 thanks for the space to vent – i guess i needed that 😉
    this story also fits into the death of my “father” – i’ll go write that one out for myself – thanks for the inspiration

    I’m really anxious to hear about last weekend’s f******* enlightenment seminar, an event I still think is one of the very best experiences of my life. I hope to make another one soon and, for you blog members undecided about attending, I can tell you, without a doubt, it is a game-changing, life-changer!! Is that a tad redundant?

  • davefromct

    Elisa.. thank you for all that you do! Both you and Erik have been a life changer for me. You mentioned your typing… not sure what kind of computer you use but Apple has built in speech to text for their “Pages” word processing app… it works quite well. Microsoft has third part apps like “Dragon” software… it’s not free and may be worth the investment…Once again, thanks for all your hard work and for sharing Erik with the world.


  • Nate

    I wonder why, then, if we make a conscious decision to renounce belief systems, or at least open our mind up to seeing energies of beings not in a body, we still can’t see them? ‘Cause I would love to…at least in baby steps

  • Jess

    Comical and of course all confusing at the same time!! I love your comments 🙂

  • Rach

    Thanks Elisa, child spirits is a topic I can’t hear enough about. I want to know everything about what my little boy would’ve felt, experienced, and what he’s doing. Thanks you x

  • Jenn Furney

    Mike can you tell me more about this and is it done through phone?

    • cristina

      oh good one, can we attend live by skype or some other online tool?

  • Louise Hillen Isom

    Wanted to thank ERIK, JAMIE, and everyone for the wonderful weekend! I have never met such kind, caring, people. Thank you, thank you. I enjoyed every minute of it. Louise Hille Isom

  • Roberta

    What ab Caylee’s death… Was her mother?

    • I didn’t channel that because all involved are still alive and that could present safety and legal issues.

      • Jaime Baxter

        yes, i don’t like to discuss gossip. what happened was caylee’s destiny. it fits into the causes that will be addressed and connected to this shift change (domestic violence/sexual abuse) that is what’s important to focus on here, not blame. and helping these little souls (and ourselves) see why the world came to a point that would allow those types of things to be so rampant and undistinguishable due to the laws and lies we live under. i can tell you she is/was very shy and untrusting of women, hint hint. this can cause such self destruction. she just needed to show us her story, more will come out. there’s a lot of children with a story like hers, sadly some are much much worse and most undetected. my life was similar to these children. not every child gets help, i thank God everyday that i finally got out. i believe that without my guides i would have had a similar fate. but caylee is happy, independent and loving. she loves working with the older boys, it gives her a sense of empowerment and having so many little friends like herself who suffered even more than she did gives her some resolve to help them see that they weren’t useless and horrible and didn’t cause the feelings their parents harbored against them helps her to see that about herself too.

      • perkyshayne

        so to clarify, if Patricia Ramsey were still alive, you wouldn’t of stated on here that she was the one who hired someone to kill JonBenet?

  • Paul

    Good Story!! I’m just learning about spirits. I never believed any of this until now. Has anyone ever head of channeling spirits? I watched some youtube clips of Jamillah A. Shabazz channeling Light Energy John Christopher. Cool stuff.

  • Exactly.

  • perkyshayne

    I have a feeling you have gotten a lot of negative comments towards you Jamie Baxter that were not posted. But honestly, I am getting an intuitive feeling that you are full of it and only looking for attention.

    • Who? Me? If that’s what you’re saying, you obviously don’t know me. Try spending one day with me to see what kind of person I truly am and how pure my motives are. You’d be ashamed of your comment.
