Making Channeling Erik Fun!

I have a question for you guys. I think it would be fun to start having live chats on a regular basis with Erik, Jamie and me. First, what do you think about that idea? Second, what format would you prefer: Twitter chat, Reddit, Facebook, or YouTube? I think YouTube has some sort of live chat. It would be ideal to have a way to archive the chats so that people who weren’t able to join the live sessions could listen to them later. I’m not very good with this stuff so your guidance would be appreciated.

It’s also time to make Channeling Erik more fun. Let’s start by having exciting little contests. Our first one will be for all orb submissions, photos or videos. Do your research on what constitutes a real orb vs. those that occur from dust, ash from burning candles, or refractive anomalies. The contest will start today and end in two weeks. Email your orbs to me (, but know that I will not comment on them mostly because I get 100s of emails a day and don’t have time to reply to them all. 🙁 I will have an independent group (that excludes me) judge and vote on each entry. The prize is an autographed copy of my book, My Son and the Afterlife: Conversations from the Other Side. v

Speaking of the book, I’d like to remind you all of the following:

1) It’s a great holiday present. What better gift than one that can transform the life of someone you love?

2) Missing your loved one? This book will bring you more comfort than a cup of warm cider by the fireplace. You also may know a friend or family member who has a rough time grieving over the holidays. This book will give them hope that their loved one is not really gone.

3) As you know, I refuse all donations and ad revenue. Many of you have tried to encourage me to change my mind about this, but I can’t. However, buying the book for yourself or others will help me create that nonprofit organization I’ve always dreamed about. That’s the ultimate goal after years of working so hard on the blog. The organization will be run by Jamie and Erik and its goal is to provide relief in many forms to those who grieve but either cannot afford that help or don’t know where to start. I will NOT profit from this book, other than knowing that I’m helping people and that Erik’s death will have some meaning.

4) I don’t want to shamelessly beg.

Here’s the link to Amazon (although it’s available pretty much everywhere.) You can get it as an eBook, a paperback (dur) and an audiobook. I love the audiobook because it’s funny to hear this pretty, young narrator drop F bombs.)


Okay, okay. I know. Enough already. Here’s the post for today. I lumped these two topics together because they’re so short.


Me: According to a blog member, in one of the posts Erik said that love of a parent is the most important. I don’t really remember that one at all! Did you really say that, Erik?

Erik: Yes!

Score one for parents! Yay.

Me: So, when you look at soul mates, is that as important or even important at all? Sometimes we meet our soul mate but we don’t end up together. Is that a free will thing? A destiny thing?

Erik: It’s a free will choice. The reasons I say that the love of a parent is stronger than the love of a twin flame or a –

Me: Oh, I was thinking you were talking about the kid’s love for his parents, but yeah, the parents loving the child, oh gosh, yes!

Erik: Because it’s that relationship that teaches you how to be open and available to love another person.

Me: Hmm!

Erik: You know, your parents are kind of ground zero. Whether they completely fuck you up or send you off with everything, it doesn’t matter. It’s the interaction that you had with them—from them—first that shape how you’re going to interact for the rest of your life.

Me: Mm hm. That’s true.


Me: Why is it that almost every channeled entity out there, Bashar, Seth, Abraham, etc., why are they all presented as males? Why are there no female channeled gurus?

(Long pause)

Jamie bursts out into laughter.

Erik: Because we live in a patriarchal society.

Me: Ugh.

Erik: Where the fuck have you been? There are tons of females!

Me: Okay. But so many more are male.

Erik: Thank god I have a dick. Think about it. When this was coming about—when channeling and communication with the afterlife was coming into mainstream again, right? —

Me: Mm hm.

Erik: Cuz it used to be very much there back in the old days, the Greeks, they had gods and goddesses and prophets, and mostly that was matriarchal.

Me: Like the Oracle of Delphi. I think that was a female thing, but I don’t know.

Erik: Back then it was the women who were pure, but now we have a patriarchal society and really for us on this side to know how to get the word out, we’re going to take the easiest route. So, if you believe that men know best and men are stronger and men are leaders, then that’s what we’re fucking going to be.

Me: Ah!

Erik: We’re already entering into your comfort zone of your beliefs. We’re not trying to make you change it. So we can teach you and show you more. It’s not a fool’s game or a trick. It’s giving the masses what they understand the best.

Me: Hmm. Okay. That makes sense.


Remember that there will be a book signing for my book at the Book Passages -Corte Madera bookstore this Sunday at 4:00 so if you live in or around San Francisco, come get a hug!

Also, I might not be able to post until Tuesday because I fly to San Fran tomorrow morning and don’t get back until Monday afternoon. If any of you want to do a guest post, send it to me.

    ” It’s giving the masses what they understand the best.” – interesting bit 🙂

    live chats on a regular basis with Erik, Jamie and you sounds great ! 🙂 Looking forward to that !

  • Michael Mahoney

    I think your best bet for the chats is probably Google hangouts.

  • Oktobre Taylor

    Well I have mentioned it to you before, but I will mention it again. I think Blog Talk Radio would be an EXCELLENT choice for this sort of thing. For $39 a month you get up to 2 hours per show and it archives the shows should you choose that option. Every live show has a chatroom for listeners to interact in. Amy Cavanaugh and Jan Drake Bakke are already regular hosts on BTR radio show called Psychics Gone Wild and could help you get familiar with how to do your own radio show. I personally think group video chats don’t work very well. Great in theory but it can sometimes be really confusing. With BTR you would be able to have control over letting listeners on air with you so it isn’t a massive mess of people all trying to talk over each other.

    I recently went on air with Chris from Curious Times as a guest. Here is the archive of that show. Channeling Erik was mentioned a few times:–oktobre-in-november

    Facebook and or Youtube, I do not have a twitter account and not sure what Reddit is. I know, I know I need to catch up with the times of technology sorry.

  • Kryssey

    I would love the Q & A with Erik! How fun! Facebook works better for many of us. But whatever you decide would work perfectly! 🙂

  • Chelsy

    I think live chats would be amazing! Have you heard of I haven’t used it before, but it seems to be sorta what you’re looking for.

  • MikeHulse

    And for the Orbs photos, try to make sure they are genuine. There are ways to check. 🙂

  • MikeHulse

    Inspired by himself today. Enjoy lol

    • cristina

      soo cute <3

    • ilSuperGattoNero

      have a very Erik Xmas :p

  • Vanessa Pagan

    I think it would be cool to read little snippets from you, Jamie and Erik throughout the day on Twitter. You can’t really put too much in a tweet but it could give some of us a great laugh whenever Erik says something out of the blue that is hilarious lol

  • Bootsctr

    I think live chats on a regular basis with Erik, Jamie and you is a stupendous idea! I think it would be very powerful and a way to share our experiences as a whole. I like Twitter chat.

  • Carlos

    Can Erik help me find why i feel like people can feel my presence and and I feel them close to my body it makes me nervous how can I stop this. I never feel like am alone in private and it tiring cause every move I make feels like it being judged and controlled. please help.

  • Jonette Teresa Benavides

    Personally, I like twitter. It’s fast & quick and not overwhelming. Also, I read the other day that twitter is becoming the most popular social media site and that FB is fading. I’m sure youtube will always be around, but you could also link to youtube from your twitter. I’d love to read a little message or pick me up line from Erik a few days a week on my twitter feed!

    & I might come to your signing sunday if I can make it!! I’d love to meet you! 🙂

  • Do come! I’m ready for a hug!

  • You’re clearly an empath. There are ways to shield yourself. My fave is surrounding yourself with a bubble of white light. You have to imagine that in your mind.

  • Maya

    1. Bought. 2. Youtube.

  • Nehaa

    wonderful idea Elisa…:)
    Looking forward to chatting with you and Erik and Jamie :))

  • Twitter will never be the same after Erik gets through with it!

    • Vanessa Pagan

      Haha I totally agree. It would really make my day seeing funny and obscene tweets from him on there.

  • asil

    wow, that sounds like a plan! and if it meant that I might also get some answers, input, validation for so many questions that I have, even better !! long story, but there are a great many missing pieces to find closure with my situation. We each have our own paths, but those unknowns can really drag you down. someday…

    Hi Elisa,
    The celebrity ghosts interviews, why don’t you collect all of them, print a book and then sell it? I know it is a cheesy starting point to introduce chanelling Erik. But if it can make lots of money and draw mass attention, why not?

    I mean, that kind of book is easy to sell, and has a possibiliry to make it big. Then at the same time, slowly you try to introduce your other books. Eventhough it has a cheesy start, but you’ll end up with more people in your mission.

    (I know, there must be negative voices accusing you of making money of your son’s death, but maybe it won’t be that bad)

    Just an idea…

    • People would send me all sorts of hate emails. They already have. They go, “who are you to think you can bring in Kurt Cobain?!” The media would hurt my feelings.

      • Patrick De Haan

        I did, got complaints and gave ’em the Erik answer, which I remember was something along the lines of “with themselves”and an intimate act.

        Cobain is a cool dude.

      • Haha! Patrick you have the best humor. Oh and I talked about you during my book signing in San Fran, all good things. Were your ears burning?

      • Maya

        The late psychic Sylvia Browne also had a similar book (ghost celebrities), but yet she had her success all the way. Why? I know she’s a fraud, but if she could make it that big, there must be something right that she did.

        You know 1 + 1 = 2. You know that with all your heart. If some other people tell you, you are wrong 1 + 1 = 5 or -1, ignore them. Because they will learn 1 + 1 = 2, …. the hard way.

        You have a sharp tongue, if you wish. You can use that to keep you balanced. No one is 100% good or 100% bad. Ehm, at some point you will have to sacrifice the “good mother image” to keep you happy and balanced. (Release the evil in you. Sorry, I might sound provocative).

        The taller the tree grows, the stronger the wind will hit the tree. But if you spoke the truth all the time, you are meant to stand very tall, because the truth keeps you grounded.

        Well, what I wrote above is my own words. But what I wrote below, I feel some other ‘force’, asks me to write this:

        Well, you have Erik behind you. Trust Him (Him =Erik joins the God force) that he will support you all the way. You are not alone here.

      • I will certainly consider this because I think we can learn a lot from all walks of life including celebrities. Many of them have struggled greatly. We can learn a lot from people’s hardships.

      • ilSuperGattoNero

        she mentioned in one of her books, via ‘francine’, that heaven was only a few feet away/above. something that has been confirmed by ‘da committee’ who talk through Patrick..

      • ilSuperGattoNero

        thats the ‘spirit’

      • Ha ha!

      • Shelby

        That duality is rough!

      • Tell me about it!

      • ilSuperGattoNero

        who are they to dare attack you, i say ..

      • There will always be trolls.

      • ilSuperGattoNero


    • ilSuperGattoNero

      How about something like a passworded pdf. a simple question can be set that only regulars will know. paypal contribution/sale based. downloadable on request. no publisher, no mistaken access that’ll raise the hackles of the ‘posteriorly challenged’ 😛

    • ilSuperGattoNero

      i’m new, & i keep seeing links to them in the ‘you may also like’ section. i couldn’t help but comment!

  • SoulScribbles

    Live Chat sessions would work so well in showcasing the wonderful chemistry between the three of you, which does much in the way of getting to know Erik and the valuable things he shares with us. What a great idea! Whichever venue you choose, I hope it’s one where personalities come through with all their spunk and spontaneity.

  • Lol!
