Internal World Meets External World

Well, I have some really bad news. I spent $2,500 out of my own pocket to create the mobile app for you guys only to have the hosting company, DWNLD.ME, drop all hosting services. It’s not as easy as me transferring the app to another hosting service like appmaker. No, I have to have my web designers create an entire new app. That means this app will have cost me $5,000. You guys know how I feel about accepting donations, but it sure would be wonderful if you could help me out. No amount is too small. I’ll even send Erik to prank you. This totally sucks. 

On top of that, I had a weird dream about Erik last night. He was around 6 years old, and I got out of bed, planning to wake him up so he could get ready for school. I was surprised to find him in the kitchen talking to my sister, Teri. She got him up early because she was planning to fly back to California that morning and wanted to spend time with my kids. I was watching him talk to Teri, and I started to wake up. As I was waking, I found myself thinking, “I wonder what kind of job he has?” Then I thought. “Oh, yeah. He’s dead.” I hate those moments of forgetfulness followed by those, “Oh, yeah. He’s dead” thoughts. Ugh. There’s a “DONATE” button on the right hand sidebar.

I find this Best of Erik a fascinating one. I hope you do, too. Oh, and don’t forget about Erik’s Hour of Enlightenment radio show TONIGHT at 5:00 PM PT/7:00 PM CT/8:00 PM ET. No more than 15 minutes before the top of the hour, call 619-639-4606 to ask Erik your question. There are three ways to listen: Listen on the phone line, click on the “Listen” icon on the right sidebar of the blog or click on this link: http://goo.gl/aFHTzJ

Me: Okay, here’s a long one from a reader. Let me see if I can encapsulate it. “One thing that I’ve yet to understand through this now is the time we look inside for everything, into the heart, as externally is where the things we cannot control are. So, if our focus is internally, in the heart, what is the external world about for us now? If all we have control over is ourselves and how we perceive and react to things, what is the external world for now? Maybe it’s always been this way and we just didn’t realize it. All I know is now what has become impossible to worry about external happenings, where all of the suffering and I, like others here, have had too much suffering already. I’m just confused as to what the external world is supposed to mean to us now since there is so much negativity and there’s nothing we can do about it.” Hm, interesting question!

Erik: That’s intense.

Me: Yeah, that’s pretty intense.

Erik: In a nutshell the question would be almost how to be resilient and let all of the negativity move through us so we can get experience from it but not let it alter us.

Me: Like a river, huh?

Erik: Yep.

Me: Let it flow. Like the title of that movie, “A River Runs Through It.”

Erik: Well for us, it’s about the human kind of being a net, and the net can be in the water. It can experience all of the motion and all of the rushing of energy and all of the life force, but it doesn’t change the structure of the net. The responsibility of the human is self-preservation in a way where it exudes love: Love of self, love of others. And the qualities of love possess respect, compassion—I’m sure people can throw in more for the definition of love. And even though the world is growing and changing, it’s not about the demise of the humans that are on it or the experience they’re having.

(Pause)

Jamie (laughing, to Erik): Really? (to me) He kind of scruffs up here hair and says:

Erik: You know, it really concerns me that a lot of people almost enjoy being stuck in that mental dilemma of trying to figure out how to be able to always just emotionally accept or be resilient about what’s coming at them. They like to stay in that conundrum.

Jamie: Whoa, Erik! Nice word!

Erik: Thank you, thank you. I can pull things out of my ass every now and then. But it is. I see a lot of readers and a lot of people at home—they tap in to the Channeling Erik blog. You know some of them think our shit totally makes sense!” And it does. It’s story telling. It’s raw. It doesn’t beat around the bush. It doesn’t ask much of people. It just shows. But then they leave, and they wanna think about this shit of like what we’re doing is in some other world; it can’t be in theirs. Not true.

Me: Yep. Yep. Wow. (My wit and extensive vocabulary continues to astound me). So, I guess the holes in the net have to be pretty big. You don’t want to catch too much shit.

Erik: Yeah, no, no, no, it’s true, you know. Well, we’re talking about a river without trash.

Me: Oh, good. Just wondering.

Erik laughs.

Me: Anything else on that, Erik?

Erik: Nah, that’s going to have to be the readers’ choice if they want more from it or not.

Me: Okay.

    Something to consider… You cannot lose what you never had. You are not responsible for anyone but you. Your choices and decisions to believe in and judge are what you are responsible for. You are responsible for the things you think, believe, say, and do. Each of these items are items you get to choose. You make the choice and decision to judge what you perceive and experience. You are the one believing that something has gone wrong. Dear One, everything that is happening and or has happened has been for your benefit and the benefit of humanity. Even the chaos you witness around you. Judge it not and sit and watch. Eventually you will see what is happening below the surface. Both within you and without.

    Brother, you cannot lose what you never had. Everything you have been taught to place value on is an illusion. None of them are real or have true value. Let go the value you have placed on them. The meaning you have given them. Those judgments are what are causing you this pain and suffering you are experiencing. You are doing all of this to yourself with your choice to believe as you are. Be willing to look within at what you are thinking and believing as being true here. When you look below the surface more than you could have imagined will be revealed to you.

    People will see what they want to see. They will believe what they want to believe. They will do what they think they should do. They do these things to fit in and gain approval and acceptance. Very few are willing to question, let alone step away from, what does not resonate within them out of fear of being persecuted and ostracized by their family, peers, and society.

    If someone or something does not resonate question it. Be willing to step away from it and those who seem to actively want that in their lives. We manifest what we focus on. What we focus on is what we have surrounded ourselves with. What we believe defines us and this world we inhabit. In each moment you have a choice. You get to choose what resonates with you or what does not.
    More often than not we choose what does not resonate. We do so because that is what we have been taught to do from birth. To accept the judgments and opinions of others that we are wrong or have done something wrong. That this is bad and this is good. We are rewarded for conforming and punished for choosing differently than someone else.

    Stand in your light of truth brother. Be not afraid of your brothers judgments of you. They have no value or merit when the light of Truth shines upon them. Be at ease knowing who you are within and without because you have chosen too. That choice was yours and no one may take that choice from you. Be the Light you are meant to be.

    Hugs, love, light, and blessings on your journey brother. You are loved. I love you

      Yay for Judy’s husband getting it done. My husband just offered as well, but he’s got too many projects going on so I’m glad someone stepped up. It will get done faster:)

      “You cannot lose what you never had.”

      The very person who needs to hear this has decided only to listen what she wants to hear. And she only wants to listen about apps.

      The truth hurts, so some people decided not to hear it.

        Who are you to judge what another may or may not need? What I am witnessing with your commentary is a projecting outward of a belief that you know better than God/Creator/All That Is. Recognize the reflection in the mirror before you. What you are judging in another is what you cannot accept within yourself…

        The Mirror

        Something I have come to understand about the mirror is that what we think we see is an illusion. We are taught to place before us a screen. A filter with which to view all we see. The picture I am given would be similar to the plastic film used on an over head projector with a drawing of the human body. My guides are using an example of the medical field and how a doctor would look at each patient.

        In the doctors mind they are holding up a picture of the human body and how it is supposed to look and act based on what they have been taught. They look at a chart with a bunch of numbers and if your numbers do not match they then judge you as having something wrong with you. They do not see the individual being standing before them. All they can see is that mental picture they are holding up in their minds.

        In this same way, we as individuals will hold up a mental picture before us as we look at our reflection. We will hold another’s image in our minds and compare ourselves to that other picture. Then we will ask ourselves why our image is so distorted. Why we do not fit into the image we are creating within our own minds.

        It is these judgments and comparisons that are distorting the images that you perceive. Each of us are perfect as we are. Each of us are unique. We are taught from birth to judge ourselves and others by comparisons. To pit ourselves against one another as combatants and not connect as the brothers we are.

        I had to learn to let go of everything I was taught to believe defined me. That each item was a judgment handed to me. Each one of those was a lie I chose to believe. In believing them I began to see myself as a hideous monster that did not deserve to continue living. In those moments I sought out death in the form of suicide. All because I was choosing to believe I needed to be someone else. Look like someone else…

        When I let go those beliefs I began to heal. I began to see who I truly am within and without. That everything is a choice and I am the one who gets to make that choice. No one else may make it for me. When I look in the mirror these days I see me and only me. I no longer see the images I used to superimpose over myself thinking I needed to be like them. I now accept me for me exactly as I am.

        Hugs, love, light, and blessings on your journey my brothers. You are loved. I love you.

    Elisa, my husband does web developing, design, etc. He said said he would love to help you out. You and Erik have done so much for me and my family… it would be the least we could do. All he asks is for a shout out… and I wouldn’t mind an Erik prank myself! lol. He just needs to know the particulars, functionalities, etc. if you are interested please let me know and I will put my husband in contact with you. Much love.

      That is just awesome, Judy. I was trying to find the Donate button and can’t! I hope that this works out for our dear Elisa!

    • Awesome! He can email me at emedhus@gmail.com but I’d feel better if he charged me something. I got this from DWNLD.ME: Hey Elisa-

      That’s a beautiful project and we’d like to help make this transition as smooth as possible. What we are able to do is transfer your app over to a new developer account, so you will still retain the app name and any installs your app has already gotten.

      Unfortunately, because we have no choice but to shut down the DWNLD service, the code your app runs on won’t work anymore. So you will need to build a new app using another tool.

      There’s appypie, goodbarber, shoutem, buildfire, appsbar, infinitemonkeys, mobincube and dozens of other cheap app providers like us.

      Let us know and then we can transfer your app over for you.

      Best,
      G

      • Queen Victoria

        okay! he will be in touch today ❤️

      • Queen Victoria

        his name is Bobby, by the way, and he has already sent you an email from abcbobby@yahoo

      • Yup, we’re connected!

    • Candi Stewart Johnson

      That is so cool that you can help out and offered! Much gratitude to you and your husband from all the CE family! (I’m sure the whole “CE family” won’t mind me speaking for them LOL) I also cannot find the donate bar???

      • If you go to the homepage, it’s on the right. It’s not on the post’s page.

  • Wei Wycoff

    Dear Elisa,
    Your dream about Erik is remarkable. If it were my dream, I’d wonder why I am asking about what job a 6-year old has. That is not a question we usually ask of a kid that young. Erik has left his physical body 7 years ago, he is this new 7 year old new Erik as we all know him. His job now is to enlighten all of us, the ordinary people who long for spiritual development and truth about how the Universe operates. If others are like me, often reading and listening “Channeling Erik” by my kitchen table, Erik is actually talking to all of us in our kitchens.
    Thanks for sharing your dream!
    Wei

      Sometimes my dreams are way way crazy and impossible to put into words. So it doesn’t surprise me that Elisa’s dream was off kelter (kilter???)

  • Nancy Antia

    Dear Elisa, Erik is not dead… I tell myself Santi’s not dead everyday so as not to forget it. It’s almost like a mantra for me. Yet, all my efforts seem useless when I have a dream like the one you had. I know how it feels.

    • guest

      Well, you can just live in that dream and not to come back to reality. Let the reality shift to match that alignment of the dream.

  • 403LEC

    I did not see a DONATE button on the right hand side bar

  • 403LEC

    Oh man…I found the donate button!

    • 403LEC

      It lead me back to this page. I wonder what I’m doing wrong…hmmm

    • YAY!! I think a lot of people have been searching the post’s page instead of going to the homepage.

      • 403LEC

        It took me a little bit of scrolling around BUT I found the donate button and I DONATED!!!

      • THANKS SO MUCH!!!

      • 403LEC

        It was my pleasure Elisa!

  • Lovely Light

    Wow this just rings with Truth for me and reminds me of the teaching, “Love Thy Neighbour As Thyself”: “The responsibility of the human is self-preservation in a way where it exudes love: Love of self, love of others. “

  • cristina
