I had a really hard time coming up with a title for this post. It was between “Identity Crisis”, “Afterlife Work” (which sounded too laborious), or “Hot Latinos” (which would get me a lot of hits from porn-seekers but might ruffle my husband’s feathers.) In the end, the choice was obvious.
Me: Hi Erik! What up, home slice?
Erik: A lot!
Me: I know!
Jamie: Poor Erik has been keeping up with me. He has this way, he’ll just, like yesterday, he looked at me when that guy, Tom, the husband, when he said goodbye, and he just exploded into tears—
(She’s referring and incident during one of the recent small group channeling conference calls when she began crying in response to Tom’s tears.)
Me: Oh, Yeah.
Jamie: Erik got up in my face, and he was snapping his fingers, and he was like, “Come on, Jamie. Lets go. Let it go.” And I was like, ‘I’m trying to let it go, Erik. I’m trying. And I couldn’t talk. I was like, ‘Oh, shit!’
Me: Aw, he’s your boy. He’s got your back.
Me: Okay, when I die, what will my role be in the afterlife? We know what your role is, but…
Erik (laughing): Well, that’d be pretty bossy for me to just tell you what you’re going to do!
Me: Well, what do you think? I mean, it’s going on right now given the fact that past, present and future are occurring simultaneously so, I’m there as we speak.
Erik: Oh, I think you’re going to help out quite a bit.
God, I hope I can take a little vacation, first.
Erik: You know the community will still keep—
Jamie (with surprised): Oh wow! That long? Yeah, he says the community will keep going.
Me: Jamie, you’re going to have to take over when I go.
Me: Good luck! You can do something. Transform it, write your books and bring them to the attention to the CE audience. Get your kids involved. Something. Maybe one of your kids will want to take over.
Jamie (giggling): That’d be awesome if Luka could take over!
Me: Yeah, oh my god. How cool!
Erik Yeah, so when you’re here, it’s more like you’re going to be helping me and the community, also—
Jamie (to someone in her office): One sec. You see it, right?
Jamie (singing in rhyme): HerMAN the maintenance MAN.
I laugh at her silliness.
Jamie (in a very hushed and naughty tone): He’s so cute!
Me: Jamie, you’re so bad!
Me: I love Cesar Milan. He’s on my cutie list with Antonio Banderas. Marco Rubio’s adorable, too. I just wanna pinch his little baby cheeks.
Jamie: Oh, I don’t even know who that is. I’ll have to find out.
Me (whispering): Adorable.
Poor Erik. He’s so marginalized. I can see him rolling his eyes in disgust, tapping his foot.
Erik: Ahem. So, mostly, you’re going to choose to help people. You know, you’re going to kind of take the role of motherhood to all.
Jamie: He’s laughing really hard!
Me: Being free of the body and getting your memory back of all your past lives—what’s it like? Can you suddenly become anyone you wish? Little girl or man or alien? How does this affect your sense of identity? Can we tap into that now?
Erik: Yes, yes, yes and yes.
Me: How much is possible, and how would we do it?
Erik: Anything is possible, and you do it through thought. Thought is the manifestation. You want to sit in the chair in the other room? You get up and sit in the chair in the other room. You want to be a little girl? You get up and you go be a little girl. You can present yourself however you want. You’re still going to be you.
Me: Mm hm.
Erik: And you don’t lose your identity. You don’t become confusing and overwhelming about your identity. It’s not like, you know, being fucked up in the head when you’re human. It’s all of a sudden you get this awareness of exactly who you are. It’s not like you’re overwhelmed and you’re losing it. It’s all of a sudden like, “Fuck! Wow!”
Me: So, it’s not like, “Who am I? Who am I?”
Erik: No, it’s like, “Oh my God. Clarity strikes again.”
Me: So, you still remember who you were in each, you know—
Me: Yeah. You still remember the identity you had from each life?
Erik: Yeah, yeah.
Me: Oh, good. So, you remember when you were the captain fighting against Vlad the Impaler and when you were Erik, my son and all that stuff?
Me: Okay, good. Anything more on that?
Erik: No. That’s really how it is. A lot of concepts don’t translate very well.
Me: Okay. Tell me about that.
(Stark silence. I guess that means time to go on.)
