Erik’s Growth, Part One

I got back from Norway last night and had such a great time. I missed you guys and am ready to hit the ground running. Today, the spotlight turns on Erik, the woo-woo guru himself. I got to thinking: I ask him questions about death, the afterlife, spirits and the human experience, but I rarely ask about him, personally. This two-part post will keep us up to date on his personal growth in the afterlife. Enjoy.


Me: All right, Erik. Let’s talk about you. I haven’t really spent a lot of time talking about you and your growth over there.

Erik (chuckling): Just like we don’t spend a lot of time talking about you and your growth over there?

Me: Oh, well that’s true, but now it’s your turn.

Jamie (laughing): He totally just turned the tables. That was funny.


Jamie: He just rearranged himself in the chair. He’s sitting sideways in the chair with his legs over the armrest and his back against the other armrest.

Me: Mm hm.

Erik: The work I’m doing over there, I think you can tell that it’s been pretty damn steady.

Me: Mm hm!

Erik: I’ve been thinking a lot about the transition from small to big, and it got me into wondering what is organic and what is manmade or if is there any different between the two. So that’s what I’ve been diving into—understanding the design of determination and free will, because those two can easily feed off of each other. I’ve been sitting back and watching people’s lives—not just people’s lives on Earth, but people’s lives where I am—and, when you start to help people on Earth, there’s a spoken rule and an unspoken rule. You know those things.

Me: Oh, yeah.

Erik: The spoken rule is that—

Jamie laughs at what he just said.

Erik: —you cannot fuck with people’s lives.

Me: And the unspoken rule is you can do it as long as nobody finds out!

Jamie cracks up.

Erik: The unspoken rule is that, you know, giving influence, influences are accepted, but we don’t ever talk about doing it in spirit. And that kind of influence is to help that person reach their goal I guess what you might consider quicker or in a timely fashion, or something like that. But we’re really not supposed to be that. We’re almost like these people who become teachers. We’re just trying to participate without trying to get involved. It’s really fucking hard sometimes.

Me: Yeah. I bet.

Erik: And I noticed it’s so fucked up because the blog is like that, too. Everything that you’re doing is wanting to participate but not get involved, right? Cuz you can’t get involved in someone’s life. It’s gotta be their choice, their doing, their own strength guiding them, but at the same time, we all want to participate in it. There’s such a fine line. It kind of fucks with my head sometimes.

Me: I bet it’s difficult.

It reminds me of how hard it was for me to stand by and watch my kids doing homework without jumping in. (Although if it was past 4th grade level, I’d probably have done more harm that good if I did)

Me: So, do you try to influence people who are instrumental to our success?

Erik: Yeah. I just get them to notice the name more or come across it more often, like coincidences.

Me: So, that’s probably participation instead of involvement. I think I understand.

Erik: Yeah. It’s kind of like those influences can do something but not get in their way and say, “This is what you’re going to do.” You can’t control anybody.

Me: Mm hm.

Erik: And then the last—


Jamie (to Erik): In Earth time, Erik. Earth time.

I chuckle.

Erik: In the last two months, I’ve been thinking about Mother’s Day.

Jamie (clearly touched): Aw, that’s cute.

Me: Aw.

Erik: Cuz I know how empowered you are by, you know, being a great mom, and so I’ve been thinking about it, because I wanted to see what I could do for you, and I’ve decided that everything I’ve done for you so far has been great, but I still feel like we’re in the same boat.

Jamie (whispering to herself): In the same boat.

Jamie: He’s pausing.

Erik: You know. In the same position we were in before I left. And I want more from that. What I figured out—what I really want—I’ve gotten for myself. You know, I understand what the pain was and what life was, and I see it differently. That’s helped me, but I want you to really see.

Me: To see what?

Erik: Not what I’ve gone through. I want you to really heal from what happened, and um—

Jamie: He’s pausing again.

(Long pause)

Jamie: He won’t let me see his face. He’s got his hat on today, and he’s got it pulled down so I can’t really make eye contact with him. I can just kind of see his jawline.


Erik: Well, I know that—first off, let me just say I’m not going anywhere. This is not a goodbye talk. That’s bullshit.

Me: Oh god. Don’t even think about it.

Erik: But I wanna say that when people on Earth experience that loss of someone, they experience the absence of them, and I’m concerned that I’ve never given you the absence for you to finish your grieving.

Me: Ah.

Erik: So, the Mother’s Day gift I decided to give you is to help you heal, and I started working on you at night. I’ve started inviting people to come help you. There are all of these crazy highs and lows energetically in you. There are these emotions that are kind of stored off in these random places. Now that I’m starting to understand better what peace feels like and, I don’t know, I guess you can call balance or something—

Me: Mm hm.

Erik: —I realized that I used to do my emotions like that like kind of tighten ‘em up and ball ‘em up and put them in random fucking places.

Me: Like compartmentalizing them?

Erik: Yeah, kind of.

Me: Okay.

Erik: And that was really the first time I saw it in you.

(Long pause)

Jamie: He’s quiet. And?


Jamie: I’m just asking him, ‘What’s your overall point?’ cuz he’s getting stuck on his words.

Erik (chuckling): I’m not a fucking poet, Jamie!

Me (laughing): That is true! You have many talents, but that’s not one of them!

Jamie laughs.

Erik: I’m just trying to say that I wanna help you heal, and I don’t know how. I feel a bit paralyzed in this situation, because I know I’m a part of it, but once–


Jamie: He stopped and goes, “I don’t fucking know!”

I chuckle.

Jamie (to Erik): You do! Just deliver it flat.

(Very long pause)

Jamie (to Erik): What’s the concern, then, Erik?

Me: I feel great! Of course I have my days, but they’re not as bad as they were before. I’m-I’m-I’m functioning quite well.

Jamie (chuckling): Functioning. He—(to Erik) Don’t. Oh my gosh. He says, “I’ll shut up, then,” and I was like, ‘No! No, don’t.’

Me: Aw.

Erik: I can see ways how you can be better, but I can’t do it for you. I’ll just say if you ever figure out how I can help you heal more from this, you let me know.

Me: Well, you just have to be patient, Erik. It’ll all happen in due time. All of this is part of my healing. Also, self-reflection, inner reflection, etc. You just have to be patient with me. It’s going to happen. Don’t worry about me. I’m strong and persistent.

Jamie listens to Erik.

Jamie: Bla-la-la-la-la. He’s talking fast.

Erik: What if when it gets really big—when this all blows up and you have to fucking sit down and tell the story again and again and again? What the fuck is that about?

Me: What do you mean?

Jamie (to Erik): Yeah. What do you mean? What story?

Me: Our story. The story of his death. But what do you mean? What’s that about?

Erik: I just don’t think you should have to say it again and again and again.

Me: Of course I’m going to have to for every place I go. On the media tour for the book? Is that what you’re talking about?

Erik: Yes.

Me: Well what am I going to do, sit on the next couch and say, ‘I’ve already told the story on Good Morning America, so watch the tapes.’

Jamie laughs.

Me: I mean, I can’t do that. As painful as it may be, I have to.

Erik: I would—


Jamie (giggling): He’s getting so flustered with himself.

Me: Aw.

Erik: I just want you to be in the right state of mind. I want you to feel really empowered by talking about it, and I don’t want it ever to hurt you again.

Me: Oh, do you think I’m going to just break down in tears when I get up there?

Erik: I don’t care about the tears. That’s going to happen. But sometimes—

(Long pause)

Jamie: He just changed his tone and posture. His feet are on the ground; his elbows are on his knees.

Erik: Listen. What I mean is when a human thinks about one thing again and again and again and again, it doesn’t leave room for any other thoughts, and I just don’t want the media to hound you to tell the story over and over so that it doesn’t leave you any fucking room for any other thoughts. I don’t want you to lose your mind over it. I want your mind to be really, really healthy and strong before you have to do this, so, I don’t know, is there some kind of fucking exercise you can do? Lift some weights with your brain or—

Me: No, I just, I don’t know. (Laughing) I’m not going to do any exercise, I’ll tell you that!

Jamie cracks up.

Me: Forget about it. I don’t have time for it. But it’s okay. I’m not going to be under the media microscope all the time. I’ll have time set aside for myself.

Erik: Okay, make a promise then. For every hour that you invest into the Channeling Erik name, media, career, whatever you wanna call it, you take an hour away from it. And sleep is not included!

Me: Aw, I love sleeping. No, I sleep normally.

Erik: No, sleep is out of it. I’m talking about awake hours.

Me: Oh, okay.

Erik: You put one hour for writing the blog, then I want you to put one hour drinking coffee and being by the pool.

That’s exactly what I try to do every morning.


I have great news! Jamie is trance channeling Erik this weekend for a full 90 minutes!  It will be on Saturday, August 17 from 10-11:30am EST.  Don’t miss it because it’s so, so fun. You know Erik; he’s a real cut up. Plus he shares so much valuable insight that you can apply to many aspects of your life. You can ask him questions, too. What a treat! The direct link to register is here:  CLICK HERE



Dear Reader,

The journey on which you’re about to embark will take you through stories that are deeply personal and involves a relationship between a mother and her son.

As a physician raised by two atheists, I had no personal belief system about life after death. In a word, I was a confirmed skeptic. As my journey progressed, my mind opened. It is my sincerest hope that yours will open as well and that you will have a greater understanding of your own life and what’s to come ahead.

Although Erik sometimes paints a rosy picture of the afterlife, time and time again he stresses that suicide is not the answer to one’s problems. If you struggle, please understand that the information in my blog and my book is no substitute for professional help. Please click here for a list of resources for help when you find yourself considering taking your own life. Know that they are readily available when you feel that hopelessness and despair that many of us feel from time to time in our lives.

I refuse all donations and ad revenue on the blog. It is my dream to one day establish a nonprofit organization that delivers a variety of spiritual services for those who have lost loved ones to suicide and cannot afford that assistance on their own. It’s a mission of love, sacrifice, and dedication.

Love and light,

    This is so sweet and loving. Erik, the loving son, is concerned for your well being and state of mind. His language sometimes is tough and macho but, bottom line, at his core, he is an incredibly insightful, kind being. Boy do I state the obvious or what? Incidentally, did Erik visit you in Norway?

  • jhon74

    great erik,,great son,,I complete understand you Elisa,,you are a great mother,,,you have raise great kids,,(sorry my english, Im juan from miami, i never miss a single post)

  • liz

    I love coffee by the pool! I think it’s sweet that Erik wants to protect and help you without meddling or influencing…not an easy balance, I bet!

  • cristina

    this was so beautiful Elisa <3
    That naughty boy is so sweet and sensitive, but I am sure he would hate hearing such words about him because "He's THE MAN !" 😛

    I just realized reading this that I see Erik like a person, not as a spirit. Is hard to explain: I mean I think about him as I think about you Elisa, except he has access to more information than you do :))))))))))))) So .. is very hard to think about him as a spirit, is weird… For me is no difference between him and my facebook friends :)))))))))))))) Because all I have from all of them are "conversations"… 😛

    This is very new for me 😛 Sprit world seems NOW as normal as our world, I see no pain in losing somebody to death… is simply a transition… like moving houses in another country 😛

    • That’s how I see him too. It’s like he’s just away at a college out of state far away. In his case, he’s very far away. In reality he’s just a kid without a body who’s able to tap into this vast pool of information.

  • Radiochick

    Thank you Elisa. Your dedication to this sight has gotten me through some very rough times. I have been a paranormal investigator for years and all of Erik’s comments fit perfectly with my research. Validation. He is such a beautiful soul!

  • Cindy

    What a wonderfully sensitive post, Elisa. Thank you for sharing this one with everyone.

    I think the following excerpt is an important concept for all of us to consider, as we communicate with loved ones in Spirit. “Erik: But I wanna say that when people on Earth experience that loss of
    someone, they experience the absence of them, and I’m concerned that
    I’ve never given you the absence for you to finish your grieving.”

    Communicating with loved ones in Spirit can be very healing, but I understand what he is saying. If we allow it to, communication with our loved ones in Spirit can also keep us stuck in our grief versus moving through it.

    Which reminds me of the Winston Churchill quote, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

  • Lorraine (LP)

    so lovely..
    welcome back Elisa! : )

  • Crystal Thomas

    I just want to say that thanks to Erik and to you Elisa-I am now a Certified Level I Reiki Practitioner!! I will, of course, be continuing to Level II and finishing with Reiki Master. If it wasn’t for the two of you and this blog I may never have found my path! Thanks from the bottom of my heart!

  • Milla

    Hi Elisa! This is so far one of the most touching post I ever read here. It seems to me that “our Baby boy” is growing.. He’s a sweet soul! I couldn’t help myself and cried as I read the post. I cried thinking of you, your pain for missing him in the physical word, asking him to put his dishes in the dishwasher, to take the garbage out while stealing a kiss and giving him a hug-things like that. He came in my dreams last night:)! I was hugging and kissing him and he felt loved! He was wearing a yellow shirt, neatly ironed and jeans. It was a wedding and he refused to attend. But he was calm and loving! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and Eric with us. In gratitude,

  • MikeHulse

    Elisa, I felt after reading this maybe you have to sit down and give Erik permission to intervene and help you and heal you. Maybe your GAG’s only allow him to go so far as part of your own contract. Even though he is still your son etc. You still have your own contract to fulfill, which obviously involves everything that has been going on with Erik. But that line may have been drawn in the sand so to speak when you were hammering out the fine details of your own contract. Maybe he has to have permission from you to actually directly intervene. IDK.

  • Leila

    Wow. Wow. WOw. Beautiful post. Wow, what a sensitive soul! Erik! wow!

    Big permission slip given from Erik to put joy and healing first before giving to others. oHhh. In fact total permission NOT to reveal anything that doesn’t make you feel good! Ohhhh – amazinggggg sensitive loving one aint he? And wise!

    You are so amazing Elisa – you are so amazing Erik, Jamie. This is such a beautiful space. Sorry to talk so long!

    Love to you,

    Leila XXX

  • Aww, you’re so sweet Milla. This brightened my day. You’re such a caring soul.

  • Kim

    I definitely understand how spirit needs to step back and allow us still in body to carry out our plan and learn our lessons without interference. Though I am not a mom, I see it as akin to allowing your kids to make mistakes, knowing that they will be better people from the value of what they learn. Can you ask your son the difference between the law of not intervening and telling you to write a book about him? There’s a lot I am learning about the afterlife, so it would be good to understand this distinction.

  • Neal

    I hope this is true, and Elisa you seem so sweet, but I can’t help but be skeptical that Jamie is trying to get you to not do the tour because it will bring attention to her from skeptics who might disprove her. I mean with how Erik changed his story relating to Bigfoot I think it was. I mean has Erik ever materialized to you or anyone like he said he would in the earlier posts? Have you ever asked her to ask Erik to identify something he maybe hid in his room or maybe simply ask him to identify a memory you two shared that he’d certainly remember and ask him to describe it. I want to believe but I also don’t want you, Elisa to get scammed because you seem like a very nice person. There’s a guy named James Randi who is offering 1million dollars to anyone who can prove they have psychic abilities and it’s been offered since something like 1968 and no one has won it yet. Not saying I don’t believe it’s possible but again, I’m skeptical for you

  • I don’t have any doubts about Jamie’s often to city. She has validated so many things such as the fact that Erik was sitting in his chair at his desk when he died, that he used a gun, what kind of gun it was, and even the clothes he was wearing. Another thing that I would like to say is that when I first started using Jamie she refused payment for the sessions but I insisted. This is not the behavior of someone who is pulling the wool over one’s eyes. Also Eric has manifested himself to me physically two or three times.

    • Neal

      I don’t mean to upset you, so I hope I didn’t, as that wasn’t the purpose of my post. In fact, I see a lot of myself in Erik. I have gone down the spiritual path in hopes of finding some meaning to my life, with some amazing highs and also some bad lows, at times I too have contemplated suicide, as my struggles with communicating with others throughout my life (which are rooted in fear) makes me feel very alone in the world and due to this I feel very hopeless about my future. I realize that all the power to overcome this is found within and am working on it (I’ve read many books about spirituality- Eckhart Tolle and Deepak Chopra being some of my favorites) and understand their teachings but struggle with implementing them as the fear within me in the form of anxiety seems to be very tricky to get rid of.

      One thing that has drawn my interest is autism. With the HUGE increase, something like 1 in 55 births in the US, it seems that it is influenced by the external world. What I hate is, having autism appears to almost be like hell on earth. I imagine it is what I feel internally except being completely unable to express yourself. And to think that this can be prevented yet it isn’t (I believe it is either due to profit reasons or indescribably evil acts in an attempt to dumb down our society. I have come across a sociopath in my life, dated one, and so I can see how they function (I personally believe many of the politicians and people in high power in the world are sociopaths) where they can win people over with their extreme charisma and likeability yet have no remorse for any harm they cause to others (another reason I question psychics). I used to think people like this couldn’t exist until I met one, and now that I have I can understand that they are capable of doing such evil, such as poisoning people, without care, if it benefits them. Admittedly, I am a conspiracy theorist, and think that 9/11 is not outside the realm of possibility of our leaders having involvement (not to get off topic, but to show you the capacity of their actions) and to prove this is possible, look up Operation Northwoods, it came out with the freedom of information act, and shows how our government put together a plan to us an act of terrorism, including flying a plane into a building, to enter Cuba. I say all this again to not get off topic but to bring up a point.

      I am not saying psychics are outside the realm of possibility, I am a firm believer that NDE’s are real and if they are, then this type of phenomena seem to also be possible. The point is, if Erik is able to communicate and help others, why not help others on a large scale and ask him to explain what is causing autism. Certainly if he has access to past, present, and future, as has been indicated in a post; This covers everything, so why not use his ability to communicate to help us eradicate something that is causing avoidable suffering for many, many, people? If he can answer this, I would be more than willing to participate in any actions that would help get things moving on this plane to help bring a lessening of this horrible disease.

  • Oh no, of course you didn’t upset me! I’ve gone through those same concerns with every medium I’ve used and most of them were crap. And I’m pretty sure he discussed autism. Did you check under the categories list?

    • Neal

      I did, yes. But there was nothing mentioned about specific causes. There was mention of vaccines and how we shouldn’t use many at once, but there is no specific mention of what about vaccines is causing autism. And more importantly it is mentioned that he doesn’t want to say which ones to use or not use. It seems that if someone has access to past, present, future and can speak to Jesus the answer would be able to be very specific. This is confusing.
      Also, I am a huge Jimi Hendrix fan!! and was disappointed that the channeling of him was removed.

      • I’m not sure. I’d ask him for specifics but I have so many questions that I’ve not covered and I know this sounds awful but since it costs me money every time, the expense is exorbitant. I can’t go into great detail about anything. And I had to take the celeb vids off because my publicist advised me to do so. You can sign up for one of those conference calls with Jamie/Erik and ask about more about autism if you want, of course.

      • Oh, I know about the weird looks. When they slowly back away it’s really bad. I’m sure Erik can help you. Just ask. Oh, that’s right; you just did! As for the origin of “spirit energy waves” it doesn’t really matter because having a transmitter has nothing to do with whether they exist or not. It’s hard in this case because there is no time there so the energy in the afterlife and of souls has no origin. It always was and always will be. It comes from Source, but Source has existed forever too. We just need to do the whole beginning, middle, end thing because that’s the way it is here: We get up, do our thing all day, then go to sleep. We eat breakfast, then lunch, then dinner. We’re born, we grow up, we get old and die. Who’s to say radio ways haven’t always existed but are being captured and then transmitted? I don’t know though.

      • Neal

        Oh no worries, I totally understand. I am just a seeker, always looking for answers, and so am curious if this medium is actually able to channel your son. At first I was totally sold, but I began to become skeptical after some research of psychics and then the inconsistencies of the Bigfoot stories and the incarnation of Jesus as Mona but earlier it was said he had no incarnation. I guess my encounter with a sociopath just makes me very skeptical of individuals who appear “too good to be true”. I guess it’s a bit selfish of me to question all this when I wouldn’t even know about it if you hadn’t gone through the trouble of making this website and written a book but I just want something to believe and don’t want to see people getting taken advantage of.

  • Being and open minded skeptic is a good thing.
