I’m so grateful to all of you who have volunteered to help me with the transcriptions! I’m working on my guilt feelings about being an imposition, but all of you have said you’re happy to do it, and that makes me feel a lot better. If you want to be added to the list, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. So it looks like the blog will have more variety and will be both text and video based. Something for everyone!
Now this is WAY off the subject, but have any of you had a roach friend? Yes, I said it. A roach friend. Well, my husband and I do, and his name is Freddie. Every evening he crosses from one part of the pool deck to the next and dives into the ground cover. Recently, a friend of mind saw Freddie and almost squashed him. My screams stopped her in her tracks, and she was a bit perplexed by my attachment to the little guy. So, don’t squish any roaches. They might be one of Freddie’s relatives!
Here’s Part Two on our God series.
Kim: Oh, jeez. Now he’s talking about the pineal gland! He’s talking so fast!
Erik: That is the point of consciousness, and first you have to accept and allow the idea, the knowing that you are the creator. How could it be any other way?
Kim (laughing): I’m sorry, and I truly hope—look, I’m just the messenger, so I hope this doesn’t offend anybody!
Erik: Mom, do you really think that there would be a man sitting in Heaven that could control billions of people?
Erik: No! How could that be?
Erik: Of course, God is almighty, God is in and for everything and by everything and of everything, but God is that thing in us that gives us life. If there were no God, there’d be no “us.”
Erik: I want you to be able to live it in yourself, to be it. Yeah, I said it! BE GOD!
Kim and I laugh.
Me: Well, to be awake, you have to be able to be awake in order to do that, I’m sure, so what does it mean to “be awake?” Just real succinctly because I have a bunch of questions that I need to get in.
Erik: Okay, you said to keep it quick because you have a bunch of questions? To be awake is to let go of your questions.
Me: Oh, I see!
Erik: I’m not talking about your questions, Mom. In life in general, when we question, when we question our being and everything around us, we’re not awake. We accept everything and we allow ourselves to be in that natural flow. It starts with the pineal gland.
Kim: He keeps referring to the pineal gland as the point of consciousness.
Erik: We need to foster its health to open up the gateway, the byway back to your divine nature.
Me: Okay. How do we do that? How do we make it healthy?
Erik (touching each of his fingers one by one): There are all sorts of things you can do. You can change your diet. As humans, changing your diet is going to be the most important thing because you are living, breathing bodies affected by other tangible things, food and drinks and so on. Oil, oil. You gotta talk about oil, Kim.
Kim: He’s showing me my bottle of frankincense oil that I have.
Kim: He’s also referencing –
Erik: I know. Sometimes this shit is weird, but it helps, I promise.
Kim: He’s showing me cilantro. I don’t know what’s in that.
Me: Okay, I love cilantro.
Erik: But any time you’re going to use food as medicine because it breaks down the calcification [of the pineal gland], you need oil as a carrier.
Kim (clenching her fists): He keeps doing this with his hands. He’s really passionate.
Erik: You need an oil that can actually carry those nutrients and break the barrier to the pineal gland in the cells.
Me: Okay, so you can’t just have cilantro in your salad. Maybe you can toss a little olive oil in it or something. Is it that or are you talking about essential oils?
Erik: The potency isn’t the same between olive oil and frankincense oil.
Me: Oh, okay.
Kim: I don’t even know what he means by that.
Erik: If you can get an oil, try frankincense.
Me: Okay. Can you eat that? Is that edible?
Erik: Yeah, it comes in a lot of forms.
Erik: Lemons, too. Lemon oil.
Kim: He just keeps saying all sorts of lemons: lemon juice, but natural, though. Fresh squeezed.
Erik: Not the shit you get in the store.
Me: Okay. Now, does God look like anything?
Erik: Mom, God looks like you.
Me: Aw, how sweet!
Kim: That about made me want to cry.
She fans her face, tears welling up in her eyes.
Me: If you were to meet God in Heaven, what would He look like? She! It doesn’t have a gender, right?
Kim (Smiling): Yeah, that’s so funny. Right before you said “He” he goes, “Nuh uh. It’s not really a he! And then you went, “She.”
We both laugh.
Me: That’s funny! But no, it’s genderless, right?
Erik: Right. Right. God is pure and strong. The purity is almost tangible.
Kim: When he shows me what God looks like vs. just different forms of God, of energy, over here (she puts her hands to her left) there might be a regular person. I know that sounds terrible to say that!
Me: A regular person, huh?
Kim: I know! That sounds so bad. I’m sorry! You see all of these little balls that move and swirl, and there’s space between them, but then over here (she moves her hands to her right) when he tries to show what God looks like, the energy is solid. It’s solid like. You can’t see space between the little moving things.
Erik: That’s where the strength is, and because of the strength, it’s often perceived as masculine, but God is not man; God is not woman; God is All. God embodies all light.
Kim (her arms far apart in front of her chest): He’s going from here to here and talking about a light spectrum.
Erik: These are colors that have music.
Erik: These are colors that have their own life, and they’re the makeup of God. You’re one of those colors, Mom.
Kim: Man, I have chills.
Erik: Because of the all-encompassing, you can’t see all of the colors, not with your kind of eyes.
Kim: So can you show me with the third eye? Is that possible?
Erik: It’s more of a feeling. To feel the color is to understand it. Sometimes with seeing you analyze it, and that gets in the way of actually experiencing what it is.
Erik: You can feel what It does to you.
Kim: That’s why he’s calling it like music.
Erik: Music lifts the emotion and carries you. So, that’s what God is.
Me: Wow. So, everything is light, everything is energy, everything is God, and God is the spectrum from very bright to very dark. That means evil must be whole and part of God, too.
Kim: Let me get to that in just one second. I want to share what he’s talking about.
Kim: He’s continuing to show these colors, this solid light, and he says:
Erik: God is self-repairing, self-healing.
Kim: It’s because I asked, ‘Can that light ever be damaged or does it need repairing like we do?’
Erik (in a matter-of-fact tone): No, no. It’s self-repairing. When we accept God in us, as us, we accept healing, too.
Me: Then we’re self-repairing, yeah.
Erik: Exactly, and that’s how we can overcome illness, Mom.
Kim: This like makes me want to cry because he’s actually crying while he’s talking.
Erik: So many people go through so much unnecessary illness because they have long ago rendered themselves powerless and Godless because they’re conditioned and taught to believe that God is something outside of them, that they worship something out over there, you know, instead of bringing it in here. (He puts both hands on his chest.)
Kim (crying): Sorry. I did not expect to cry this morning!
Me: Aw! I wish I was there to hug you, baby.
Erik: Allow that without question. Three are no questions in that process. That way, we overcome, Mom. We overcome. No matter what illness it is, we overcome.
Kim (Trying to compose herself): He’s showing me–my neighbor was just diagnosed with Guillian-Barre, if that’s how you say it. Oh, a terrible, terrible thing!
That’s a disease that entails paralysis that starts in the lower legs and slowly ascends up the body.
Erik: Even something in that case, it’s a matter of presence, becoming one and present. When we live in patterns where we’ve given our power away and we’ve given our God away—the God within us—then there’s no presence in the cells, in the physical body, and that’s when illness can manifest.
Kim: That’s when he’s coming in and talking about these darker lights, dark energies, it’s just the absence of light. It’s not a darker shade.
Me: Is it a complete absence or is it less light?
Erik: Less light.
Me: Okay, because I thought everything is light.
Erik: Yeah, it’s not complete absence; it’s just less. That’s why it gives us the effect that it’s darker. And by the way, let’s go ahead and bust up that myth that because it’s dark, that means it’s bad. That’s not true. That’s not true. So don’t associate dark colors or shadows or whatever with bad. Let that go.
Happy Solar Eclipse, peeps!
