First Physical Visits

For months now, I’ve longed for a more tangible presence from Erik. Nothing quite measures up to the intensity of a mother’s longing to hold her child in her arms, to kiss his cheek, to caress his face. Through our psychic medium, Kim O’Neill, Erik had mentioned that he has been practicing manipulating his energy so that he could eventually appear in a form we could see. To facilitate this, he asked us to talk with him, engage him, and channel him whenever possible. These, he says, give him the opportunity to practice extending his energy. He describes this as being similar to “puffing out my chest like I used to do when I was a little kid so I could look bigger.”

For the last week or so, I’ve been following his suggestion with keen devotion. At first, I felt a little silly talking out loud, engaging in idle banter to an empty space. I had to sequester myself in areas where I could be alone, for fear that my family, already concerned about my grief, would think I had finally tipped over the cliff into an abyss of insanity. Eventually, I conversed with Erik silently. The first few weeks, it felt like I was responding to my own dialogue, but with practice, I could hear Erik’s voice in my head as he answered my questions and reacted to my remarks. I could also see his image in my mind. I could feel his energy, his mood, his personality. The dark and somber mask that he wore the last few years of his life had been shed revealing the happy, mischievous boy I remember so well and miss so much.

The first physical visit occurred night before last. I had been talking with him all evening, and as I lied down to sleep, I could see a form at the foot of my bed on the left side. I felt it was Erik; his presence was so palpable. When I directed my gaze toward him, I could see his upper body. It was a translucent, shimmering blue with gold around the fringes. His arms were crossed, as was so typical of him, and he wore a broad grin that seemed to say, “See, I told you I could do it.” I could feel his pride so strongly. After 15 seconds or so, his form began to drift up and to the right and slowly dissolved. The last thing I saw before he was completely gone was that wonderful smile.

The next morning, I was sitting in my car in the garage waiting for Lukas and Annika so that I could take them both to school. I began talking to Erik again. I told him I loved him. I asked him what he’d been up to lately. I thanked him for the visit, and in general, engaged in trivial chit chat. I clearly felt his energy in the front passenger seat beside me.

When Annika passed in front of the car, she had a strange expression on her face. Although she usually sits in the front seat, for some reason, she paused at the front passenger window, then entered the rear passenger door to sit in the back seat. That night, she told me she saw Erik sitting in the front seat. It alarmed her. Things like that tend to freak her out as of course they would to most 15 year-old girls. When I told her that I had sensed his presence there at exactly the same time, her eyes widened to the size of cup saucers. I wonder how well she slept last night?

Hopefully, this is the beginning, not the end. Hopefully, it is the beginning of an exciting and enlightening journey traveled by a healing family with the help of a wonderful spirit.

  • Must have been quite an experience. It’s a bit difficult to believe but one can never fully comprehend what one has never experienced. I hope you keep up the faith. God bless you.

    • I know it’s hard to believe. I’ve been a skeptic for a long time. There’s a great book called The Hidden Domain written by a physicist who explains how all this and more is not only possible but highly likely. He does so using all sorts of mathematical equations, quantum mechanics, etc. It sounds complicated but it’s written with the assumption that the reader has no prior knowledge of basic physics.

  • I love this! You are very fortunate that Erik is visiting you in such an obvious manner. I remember my daughter as a teenager wanting nothing to do with mystical things, yet she has a gift of premonition. I think I’ll check out The Hidden Domain. Sounds interesting.

    Keep up the great work on your blog and in your channeling. It’s refreshing to find someone who believes and is not a loon!

    • Hmm, not so sure about the “not a loon” part. My kids might disagree with you there! No, but as a physician, the scientist in me needs explanations. I know certain phenomena, like “love” doesn’t require proof in terms of one or more of our five senses because we feel it, but it’s exciting to see the science and math behind these spiritual matters. Otherwise, I would tend to think I’m delusional in grasping for anything that might soothe my broken heart.

    That is so beautiful, Elisa!
    What a wonderful gift, to see your beautiful boy, smiling and happy at the foot of your bed!
    He loves you so much he wil do anything and everything to prove it.
    I am going to try this myself. So I just have to engage in conversation in my head and await replies and, hopefully, this helps build up the energy?
    I’ll give it a go and tell you if I get any results,
    love & spiritual hugs,
    Tracy xx

    • Adam loves you too, so remember that if he doesn’t come, this doesn’t mean he doesn’t care. I think it has more to do with us, the receiver, than with them. For me, it’s pretty hit or miss.

    You are such a beautiful mom. I love how much you are willing to share here. Thank for having the strength and courage to do so. I can feel so much love here.

  • Aw, shucks, thanks rebelgirl.

    Hello, first of all, I lost my beautiful son Paul on Oct. 24, 2012. He also took his own life, as I read this I see Pauls story, he also was very sick for yrs with Bipolar and depression. He tried twice before to take his life and once I got him and the other time his sister found him, this time he was not to be found, I realize now why. I can not stop crying as I read this , I want to thank you for putting your story here, it will help Moms everywhere. I almost feel like my son brought this to me. I have not heard him or seen hm or even dreamt about him and Im confused and a little jealous, what can I do to have the connection. Am I crying too much, I miss him so much and I feel exactly what you are going through. I was looking for “Ask Erik” but I do not see it, I wanted to ask him if he has seen Paul, if so tell him to get in touch with me, I know it sounds like Im desperate but I am. Anyway, again thank you so much for this, I pray for you and your family. My eamil is jjmontiel56@aol.com Love Joy NOW I KNOW MY BABY IS OK AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS HE IS HAPPY, That means the world to me.

  • God how well I know the pain. I used to have the Ask Erik column but I was flooded with so many requested that just couldn’t afford it anymore. I pay for everything related to the blog out of my own pocket, including the sessions. I wold recommend you sign up for one of the grieving parents conference calls though. Erik (through Jamie) will get Paul for you so you can talk to him, ask him questions etc. The only part I play is to volunteer to record the session so everyone has a permanent mp3 to keep.It’s so, so healing and very inexpensive. If any of you blog members want to share your experiences, please do. The only thing is, Jamie and Erik can only take 6 people for obvious reasons so they fill up quickly. Let me know if you want me to help you find out how to sign up.

    I would love to see the son I lost at birth. The nurses wouldn’t bring him to me afterwards so I didn’t get to see him. My mother saw him and described him to me. But I would love to see him for myself. That is wonderful you got to see Erik.

    • You should talk to him directly through one of Jamie’s small group griever’s calls.

      • Maryann Potter

        yes that is what you said before… I just need to get connected on a regular basis… I have been busy lately and have not had the time to just sit and connect. Thank you Elisa… hugs…
