Many of you may have had deceased loved ones communicate with you in ways you might not be aware of. (Damn I hate to end a sentence with a preposition, but I sound too professorial if I do.) Anyway, I digress. (Ah oh. That sounds kind of professorial, too. Sigh.) The way Erik says hello or tells me I’m on the right track is by creating a sensation of intense goosebumps. It’s a tingling sensation either on my scalp, my face, an arm or a leg. I had never experienced those goosebumps before he died. So, I asked him how spirits create that sensation, among other forms of communication.
Me: Why do some spirits make us feel goosebumps and/or coolness, and how exactly do they do that?
Jamie (to Erik, whispering): Oh, don’t.
Jamie: Can this go off record? Or maybe not.
Me: No! I don’t edit anything.
Jamie: Oh, god.
She braces herself as she conveys what Erik said.
Jamie bursts into laughter. She can’t contain herself.
Erik: Sometimes when you feel goosebumps, that’s kinda like when you’re in the movie theater and you’re—
Jamie squirms and says, “Oh,” to signal how hesitant she is about repeating his words.
Erik: It’s like being in front of Pee Wee Herman.
Me: I know you were going to say that!
Jamie: How did you know that? Holy sh*#. How did you know that?
Me: When you said “movie theater,” it was pretty obvious. Okay, what about Pee Wee?
Jamie laughs nervously, but continues.
Erik: —and, you know, he’s whacking off. That would give you the goosebumps.
Jamie: Even though he says whacking off, he shows me a, uh, a pump of lotion.
Erik: You know, that would give you goosebumps.
Me: Well, how do you do that?
Erik: It really depends on the vibration that the spirit is giving off, and what you’re wiling to perceive. Goosebumps, if we look at it scientifically—
Jamie: He’s using air quotes.
Erik: —they’re there as a mechanism, as a warning that your sense of your environment has changed without cause. I think that’s a great alarm system for when a spirit walks into a room. They can change the subtle energy in a room, but yet visually and physically, nothing has changed. You know, that’s there to raise the hair in your body and make you look bigger than what you are and like a badass. It’s the same thing as when raccoons and cats raise the hair on their bodies. Same mechanism as the goosebumps. Makes your hair stand up.
Whoa, I feel goosebumps on my right leg as I type this. HELLO ERIK!
Erik: They do it out of defense, but for us, it’s kinda, you know, (in a girlie voice) a little bit of fun. How do we do it? It’s really just a vibration match.
Me: A vibration match? You mean you match it with ours?
Erik: Uuuuh, it’s not like an identical match, but let’s say if I need a finger to push a button, I replicate the energy vibration of the finger so I can push the button. It’s cause and effect.
Me: Oh, I see. So, in the case where you make me feel goosebumps, um, like sometimes you make me feel goosebumps on the side of my face or my scalp or leg. How do you do that? Give me a step-by-step.
Erik: I get up behind you, and I get a large container of lotion.
Me (chuckling): God, Erik. Don’t even go there.
Erik: No, I get up behind you,and I put my hand in your hair. Then I push my energy through the top few layer of your skin, but not to the bone. And just the muscles. Usually your body responds to an interference, a change in the environment, so your body responds with the goosebumps. That’s why it’s really location specific.
Jamie stumbles on the word, “specific”.
Erik: Full body goosebumps is when we move through somebody or move past somebody. It’s all kinds of things. But for you, it’s pretty easy though, because you’re in tune to me; you communicate with me; you talk to me, so it’s kind of like knocking on the door to come in or hitting the doorbell and coming in.
Me: Mm hm, You usually do it to say hello or to give me an affirmative like, “Yes, that’s true,” or “Yes, you’re on the right path.” Things like that. Is that true?
Me: So, really, it’s energy-to-energy, right?
Erik: Yes, it is.
Me: So are you matching my energy, or…
Erik: Well, I’m not matching it identically; I’m just matching the need to give you the goosebumps.
Jamie (to Erik): I think that was confusing, the way you used “matching.”
Me (confused): Yeah. I don’t understand. Tell me energy to energy what you mean.
Erik: If I need a level 4 vibration to make you have goosebumps, I adjust to a level 4 to get into your energy and create the goosebumps for you. If I want to give you a solid touch, maybe I have to be a level 2, so I’d go to a level 2. If I want your ear to turn red and get hot and fiery, then maybe I have to be a level one.
Erik: So, I adjust myself to a level one. Our sense of interacting with humans, pets, plants is an adjustment of your energetic vibration level. It’s not like a mental think where I’m thinking it and I’m creating it and I’m making it happen out and away from me. I’m actually involved in that interaction, that merge of energy.
Me: Interesting. This blog member goes on to ask what other ways spirits make themselves known and how.
Erik (laughing): What? Is she writing a book?
Me: I guess so!
Erik is laughing hard.
Erik: The ways? The list is endless!
Me: Okay. Give me one other way.
Me: The second most common way.
Erik: Oh, like when people just randomly think if us for no cause or reason?
Me: Okay, and how—
Erik: But they think it’s just their memory kicking in or that they got sad or that it got triggered by something else? You know, that kind of bullshit; it’s really us.
Me: So, how does that happen? We sense the energy, but….
Erik: Ah, because normally your conscious mind is focused on something else, so it leaves your backside totally vulnerable. And I don’t mean, literally, your ass side. I just mean that if you’re focused on one thing, the 360 of where your focus could be is kind of left dark, right? If you’re focused on eating that hamburger the way your are, then all the other parts of your conscious awareness are kinda dull. So that leaves us an opening to send an energetic email with our imagery, our smell, our touch, our whole presence. You know, that’s like an email to us. It’s the whole thing. It’s a way of communicating. And then that darkened area outside what specific focus they’re having will light up. Boom! Cuz it’s receiving the email. And it’s easier to receive it cuz your fucking brain isn’t trying to control what’s coming in. It’s too damn focused on that hamburger. That’s the sweet spot. Then all of a sudden, you go, “Ah, Jim! I remember Jim! Why am I thinking about Jim? That’s weird!
Jamie (chuckling): I love these voices. The way he says things in a different voice. It’s funny.
Erik: So, that’s one way we get in, but yet people think it’s their mind paying games with them and all kinds of fucked up things, so we often don’t get the credit. Instead of, “Oh, Jim must be saying hi”, it’s, “Oh, he must have liked hamburgers.” So, they fuck it up. That’s one of the easiest ways we communicate.. If we go beyond that, we go to moving shit, putting shit in your way like in situations in your life, like you wanted a new job but you looked and looked and looked and looked, and it didn’t come up. Then, you turn around and you bump into somebody and they say, “Hey, are you for hire?” And they give you the job you wanted. That’s the shit we like to do.
Me: Well, that’s nice!
Erik: Yeah, that’s why I’m kind of digging all this media and, you know, finding the right people for your team, so…
Me: That’s awesome.
Erik: Yeah. It’s happening. It’s good stuff. Good stuff, Mom.
And that was good stuff, Erik.
Just a heads up: Jamie has two small group phone readings coming up. I urge you to sign up, because you’ll have the opportunity to talk with your loved ones, find out your spiritual path and past lives, ask about relationship, health and career issues, and more. Jamie is kind enough to offer these inexpensive mini-readings, because she’s booked up through September for her full hour readings.
Also, please join Jamie on Saturday, May 18 from 10:00-11:30am EST as she channels Erik. This will be a fun and unique event in which Jamie will channel Erik. He will deliver a lesson for the first 45 minutes, and then answer participant’s questions for the remaining 45 minutes. I’ve already signed up, and I hope you do, too. These sessions are often life-changing. Sign up below:
Last but not least, don’t forget to subscribe to the Channeling Erik YouTube channel. This morning, I just added a four-part series about the nature of, sensations behind and physics of death as well as information about life reviews. Here’s the link to the channel as well as the first in the five-part series about being human. Be sure to bookmark the link to the channel.
