Is Heaven a Snoozer or a Trip?

When Erik describes Heaven, I react differently depending on the state of affairs in my life. If the shit’s hitting the fan, I’m like, “Sign me up. Let’s get a first class ticket for Mama E!” But when I’m loving life as I have recently, I’m more hesitant. The thought of having no contrast sounds, well, boring as hell. Let’s see what Erik has to say about it. 

Me: Some people wonder if spirits get bored. Like [my son] Lukas said, “Ugh, I don’t think I wanna die. Heaven sounds boring!”

Jamie laughs.

Erik: It’s definitely not boring! There’s way more to do here than there is on Earth. I think people believe that if they don’t have conflict or chaos, that things are boring because you can only be happy for so long before something goes wrong.

Me: Yeah.

Erik: Well, that’s just human training. We don’t need that shit here.

Me: Good.


Me: Tell me more. One thing is you don’t get that element of surprise or anticipation, “Ooo, I wonder what’s going to happen next.” Not only bad stuff, but good stuff, too.

No surprise birthday parties and no meeting your husband at the door in a negligeé.

Erik: Yeah, that element of surprise is dampened a little bit, but there’s still discovery. You can still come across things that are perceived as new even though you already attained that knowledge. It’s kind of like how people fall into amnesia like a pretend amnesia or fake to forget—


Erik: Or just stopped eating bread for ten years and then had a piece of bread. It’s like a new experience.

Me: Oh, I see. Okay.

Erik: That’s how it is here. No matter what, we can get all the information, but at the same time, if we want to know, we can just kind of go to that spot and gather up that information and know.

Me: Okay.

Erik: But if we don’t want it that way, we just kind of go into it without consciously wanting to receive the information beforehand, and, as you might say, we muddle our way through it.

Me: Well, do you like it there better than you like it here?

Erik: Is this a trick question?

Me: Mm mm.

Erik: Yes.

Me: What about others? Are there spirits who prefer to be on Earth as a human?

Erik: I haven’t come across an entity who’s been trying to get back to Earth who hasn’t had the ability to, because if you really like Earth that much, you can just go back into another body.

Me: Okay. So there’s nobody who’s like, “Forget this Heaven stuff. I want to dive right back in. I’m ready to go. Boom! I’m going to Earth.”

Erik: Yeah. Not so much, plus when we’re talking like that, we’re assuming that you can only be in one place at a time because you’re missing it so much that you’re not connecting to it or are there. But since time is all happening at once, all the incarnations you’ve chosen, even if you’re not focusing on one of them, you’re in other incarnations.

Me: Okay. That makes sense. You can just focus your intent on that one. Bella, get off of my questions. She’s on my desk walking around the questions. Bella, let me see the next one. Okay, this is from a blog member. “What advice do you have for people who know they want to live for others like their family and kids but the pain of life is so great that they fantasize about the relief of death?” This is a really cheerful one. Woo hoo! Yay!

Jamie laughs.

Erik: Well, Mom, we gotta remember that death and dying isn’t a sad thing, but our culture has engrained in us that it is. We’ve been taught that it’s sorrowful and negative to think about. So we feel ashamed and we punish ourselves if we are more attracted to death than to life.

Me: Mm hm.

Erik: We just have to find a more compassionate way to accept this person’s needs as is. So I would say to this reader, this—

Jamie: Blogger?

No, that’s the person who writes the blog.

Jamie: What are you saying, Erik? B-l-o-g dash capital E. E is for Erik. Blog-E. There we go. I knew I was missing something.

Erik: What I would say to this blog-ee is, “Don’t ignore your feelings.” I don’t want everyone to think that I’m on one side or the other when I give this advice, so please read with an open mind and an open heart. We shouldn’t ignore what our needs are. Now, the biggest question is “Are we in a healthy place in our life where we can best identify those needs, or are we using escapism?”

Me: Mm. Yeah.

Erik: And so I would seek help making sure that how you’re viewing your life has meaning and accuracy for you. I would go to a life coach, therapist, whatever floats your boat, whatever makes you feel comfortable when you’re talking about these needs. And then if you’re in the boat like so, so many of us where you absolutely want to die, but you would never take your own life—you’re just not interested in that. You’re just like, “C’mon. When? When’s the end of the story? Let’s do this! Let’s get out of here.” The way to deal with this is learn astral projection. Learn transcendental meditation. Try the deprivation technique. You know, find techniques that take you to an altered state of mind to go to other dimensional states. That way, you can have that pressure relieved. Guess what? You don’t have to wait until the end of your life to have the joy where we are. You just don’t have to wait for the end.

Me: So I guess hallucinogens like LSD might be an option, too, under the supervision of a doctor.

Erik: Hell yeah! Look at my mommy!

Me: I’ve learned from the best!

Erik: It’s true. A lot of people can’t take their minds and just let go, but under supervision using hallucinogens—it’s just amazing. Stop forcing yourself to live the life you’ve already willingly disconnected from. Be responsible. Start going beyond the boundaries that you were taught had to be maintained for you to have your life and start living in a way that fulfills all of your needs.

Me: Exactly. Start tripping.

Erik: Start tripping! You know, maybe it requires that you move away from the city and you get into nature. Maybe you live in a nature preserve and start taking care of the animals. Maybe it’s a very unconventional life, but, guess what? It allows you to go beyond this human structure—society’s structure—and allows you to live more in an altered state of mind, which gives you joy.

Me: That’s true.

Erik: Reconnect your life back to your needs.

Me: I love that! That should be a bumpersticker.

Jamie: Yeah, it should be. Highlight that. Bold Italicized. Red font. Let’s go all the way.

I chuckle.

    I SO love this post!!!

  • Heather

    I loved this one. I astral project almost every single night. I love sleeping so much! It’s like death without the commitment 😛

    • Alan Fernandes

      I love sleeping too.Everyone has said I have slept more than 1/2 my life away.Especially in stressful times l want to sleep-maybe because I can go back home for some comfort.Heather do you do telephone readings(I am in Canada)but don’t have skyp?.thanks Alan

    • I wish I knew how to do it!

      • Heather

        It took me a while, but I got it pretty quickly (only because I practiced 3 times everyday when I didn’t have a job hahaha). I can teach you a few quick tips that could help 🙂

        1. Set your intent: what I do is first recite a saying like, “I’ll successfully astral project from my body, and I will remember what I need to remember to help with my spiritual journey.” I say that 5 times. This helps to set your intent, and you are more likely to astral project if you tell yourself that you will successfully accomplish it. This also helps with setting boundaries so that you have a good and positive experience.

        2. Get into a deep meditation: then I relax, meditate, and focus on my breathing for a little bit until I’m almost asleep. It’s important that you get to the point of almost falling asleep. To see how to get started on meditation, click here.

        3. Begin to reach out: after meditation, I begin to imagine myself in my mind reaching out my head towards the headboard of my bed. I imagine reaching through the wall and clinging on to something in the other room or a tree outside. When I do this, my head begins to vibrate. I focus on that vibration and try to send it all along my body. After my body begins to vibrate (the vibration along the body isn’t as strong as it is in the head), I switch to reaching out to the ceiling. I imagine pulling in energy from the ceiling and pulling it into my head, and then allowing the vibrations to get stronger throughout the rest of my body.

        4. Pull yourself out: finally, I find an object that’s in the room I’m in like a ceiling fan or dresser. I imagine myself holding on to that object, and using that to pull myself out of the body. I’m not sure when it starts to work because after that, it feels like I fell asleep because I’ll have a lucid dream where I’m out of my body.

        Typically I just fall asleep while the buzzing in my head is happening, and I get very vivid dreams.

      • I’m not sure what question your asking. Can you make it short and simple?

      • Heather

        I was giving some tips on astral projection 🙂 Simple way: just a imagine a white tunnel of light coming from where your third eye chakra is to your ceiling. Think of that white light as a tunnel that pulls energy in from the ceiling. You should begin to feel tingling in your third eye, and when you do, just fall asleep 🙂 your dreams should feel like lucid dreaming.

      • Cool. I’ll try it!

      • Does your energy pull in into the ceiling or does energy come from elsewhere through the ceiling?

      • Heather

        The energy you’re pulling in comes from the ceiling as well as your guides and angels or loved ones helping to feed you energy through the light tube. I forgot to mention to ask your guides and angels for help 🙂

      • Okay, thanks.

    • Piet Mondriaan

      Wow, I love what you can do!! I’ve tried it for eight years since I was 16 or something. Sometimes very die-hard, like waking myself up 10 times in a night! Meditating my ass off. Reading all kinds of books. Maybe I should go for the LSD instead. 🙁 How do I find out what I do wrong?! I wish people like you would start Astral Projection seminars or something, I’m not interested in my guides. (saw your site) I’m more interested in you and your experiences. Write a book about it 🙂 (Including many details.)

  • Jean

    Wow, awesome!! Thanks Erik <3

  • Gwen

    This was a great post! Loved the cartoon…too funny!! 🙂

  • Nancy Antia

    Elisa, your posts have been healing wounded parts of of my soul for such a long time already! A hearty thanks!

  • Mike

    Has Erik talked about the rapture or the Second Coming of Christ? Most Christians believe that Jesus is the Christ and that he will return in glory to establish his kingdom on earth for a thousand years.
    What does Erik say about Christ’s resurrection?
    Christ in the New Testament foreshadowed his death and resurrection, and some would say that the Shroud of Turin is proof of a miracle because of the image of a crucified man. That image could have only been “embroidered” on due to intense radiation, according to some scientist. I don’t have the references but there was a documentary on the History Channel that talked about this subject.I am interested in your thoughts.

    • I haven’t asked him about those. Have you watched the interview with Jesus? It’s on the CE YouTube channel.

      • Mike

        I read some where that he never died, but later moved to France. But going back to the Shroud of Turin, some experts claim that it would have been impossible to paint the image with a paint brush due to the fact that the paint or blood didn’t seep deep into the cloth.
        Also, I don’t want to be to random with my comments, but there is a man by the name of Howard Storm who was an atheist professor who had a nde, and he claims that within the next one hundred years the world will be drastically different. He claims that it was revealed to him in heaven that we will live in an utopian society, and that people will choose how long they want to live and will be able to plant seeds and grow food by meditating. He claims this will happen within a hundred years.

      • Carol Walker Cline

        I’m pretty sure in the interview on youtube that Jamie has with Jesus that he does say the shroud of Turin is real. I also personally believe that it is entirely possible that the second coming is nearing. I think someone suggested on the blog a while back that the shift might actually be part of all of that. I can’t remember exactly what was said or who said it, but it wouldn’t surprise me if that was true.

      • Mike

        After viewing the video, it seems to me that Jesus is in spirit and not in a resurrected state.

      • Carol Walker Cline

        yes, she is interviewing him in spirit :0)

      • Carol Walker Cline

        oh hey, you know what I just realized – in that interview with Jamie, Jesus says that he is incarnated on earth right now…….he is a girl in India. “For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the son of man.” – Matthew 24:27 – interesting thought……….

      • Mike

        The Bible says that he will come in glory and his feet will touch the Mount of Olives. What about all of the NDE’s where people have recounted their interactions with Jesus and he says to them that he will come back soon in glory? Why would Jesus refer to himself as God? Isn’t that what got him in trouble?
        Another thing I have a hard time understanding is the idea that there is no devil or Satan. The major world religions acknowledge that an Adversary or Devil exists. There have been many documented paranormal investigations and reports of people being possessed by demons. Yet, I read in a transcript from the archives that demons come from a different dimension. What is their purpose? Moreover, most of the possessed individuals can’t stand to see a cross or hear the name Jesus.
        What’s your take on this?

      • Carol Walker Cline

        I’ll have to go back and check out the one about the demons, but he does say that demons exist… kind of makes sense that they would be from a different dimension, but I still don’t have the best understanding of all of the dimensional stuff yet. The alternate realities that they discuss in the 2nd interview with Jesus is also really difficult for me to process. I think he says that there are some people who actually choose to come back and have an experience where they come in contact with some sort of demonic entity. I can’t really imagine why anyone would want to experience that, but apparently some people do. – and yes, he says they are real. I personally think Jesus is downplaying the role he plays in life a bit in the interview – it may be for the benefit of others who belong to different religions. It may be that he didn’t want to alienate them or make them feel their religion was not as important as Christianity. Have you read any of the info that relates to how we all have “higher selves” in spirit. It helps to start at the beginning of the archives. It makes it easier to process everything.

      • Mike

        But didn’t Jesus teach how to pray in the Sermon On The Mount. Didn’t he say that we should say “thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” I probably didn’t quote it correctly, but Jesus making reference to his father.
        I do believe that Erik is doing an important work or service for his mom and for followers of this site. However, at times I get the feeling that there really is no structure in Heaven and that God is really laid back. But I go back to the NDE’s that many people have had, which they claim to have conversed with Jesus and they come back with a testimony that he is the Christ. They come back knowing that he died for our sins, that he is the Savior of humanity and that he will return to earth to rein as king of kings. There are hundreds of NDE’s that have this same common thread. Carol I appreciate you replying to my comment because I think you come from a Christian background. I wonder if anyone else from this blog has the same questions I have. I have so many questions about all this.
        One last thing. I go back to people being possessed by demons and how those demons can’t stand the image of the cross or the name of Jesus.

      • I’m wondering if that sentence refers to what Erik has said: that there is free will here and where he is.

      • Carol Walker Cline

        Hi Mike – of course I’m happy to chat with you. Yes, I am from a Christian background. My grandfather was an Episcopal minister and I went to a christian girls school growing up. I actually found my way to this site after a friend and his wife both committed suicide after their baby died. Before I started looking into Erik’s story, I spent about a year studying Near Death Experiences myself. I had always wanted to believe in God and Jesus and an afterlife, but was afraid that it wasn’t true – kind of a too good to be true thing. Anyway, after our friends died I started searching for the truth beyond a shadow of a doubt. So I started with the NDE’s and like you said many people who have had them claim to have seen and spoken to Jesus. I definitely believed the people who made those claims, but it was still odd to me that all of the NDE’s were so different. Anyway, once I read Dr. Medhus’s book, it kind of helped tie everything together for me. It answered a lot of questions I had about all of that. If you haven’t had a chance to read her book you should get a copy. It’s really very good & it helped me piece everything together. There is also a lot of info in the book that is not on her website. Just to add a tidbit, Dr. Medhus does not profit from anything related to the site or her son. – and to answer your question, yes, I do think that Jesus will come again & will reign as our Prince of Peace – I hope so, anyway, b/c there certainly are a lot of bad people in the world :0)

      • Jesus, like all of us, is God. Erik says that we are all whole and part of God, like a hologram, and God is All There Is. Nothing else exists. A lot of the stuff in the Bible seems supported by Erik.

      • Mike

        Thanks. I know that the Bible is corrupt because stories that are passed down from generation to generation can become altered. This is all new to me because of my upbringing. Many Christians will tell you they know what heaven is like, but they have never been there except for those have had NDE’s. Even then, those people have never stayed there long enough to know what Heaven is really like.
        One last thing, Elisa you should try to channel Joseph Smith the Mormon prophet. There are millions of people around the world who believe he spoke with God and Jesus Christ in 1820 when he was 14 years old. I think it would be interesting to see what Joseph Smith has to say about his life mission, polygamy and Mormon temple rituals.
        Just a thought.

      • I’m pretty sure he’s on the list.

      • Mauigirl

        Just a small note regarding your question about the devil; the premise that there is no devil is based on the premise that God, or Source Energy, is All love, All perfection, and All That Is, therefor there can be no opposing force such as the devil, or evil. As souls experiencing the Separation, we can get pretty far out there and appear to be “evil” when in actuality those souls are just experiencing the far reaches of the Separation. In Truth, we are all from God, and the only truth about us is that we are Perfection, whether we are consciously aware of it or not, or choose through free will to experience that or to experience something else. The whole spectrum is available to us without judgement for our own personal growth and expansion. Hope this helps.
