I’m packing up the campsite, getting ready to head home. We had a wonderful weekend in beautiful weather, and I didn’t end up with any broken bones mountain biking, although I can say there were a couple of close calls.
Last night was a little hard. I was thinking how much Erik used to love camping with us and how he would be enjoying everything we did yesterday with us if he were alive. I got into that, “I can’t believe he’s dead” state of mind. He’s been gone 6 years now, but I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that there is no body to hug anymore. I don’t think I’ll ever get to that point. I also thought about how horrible it is for a mother to lose her child because, after all, it’s our job to protect our cubs. I failed at that job, and there are no do-overs. Today, I practiced tweaking my perspective, reminding myself that he isn’t truly gone and that the main Erikness is eternal. I also shifted my perspective toward all the things in my life I’m grateful for–and there are many–so I feel somewhat better. Still, when I heard that Nancy Reagan had died, I got a little jealous. After all, she’s with her Ronnie now, and I have so long to wait to see Erik again.
I’ve had a tough week because my husband’s been seriously ill in hospital so after taking care of him for the last couple of days at home and lots of journeys to hospital I’ve begun to feel slightly worn out myself. So last night I had a hot bath and went to bed. This morning I woke and thought I need the bottle of lavender oil I use for a because burn on my leg as it was feeling pretty sour. I’d remembered seeing it the night before on top of the toilet where id left it but as I rolled over there it was laying next to me! I was pretty baffled and shocked that it had appeared there! I Told my hubby as he’d been Sleeping on the settee due to being poorly and he also shared a story about the night before. He had seen a shadow moving around our living room for around ten minutes before he went to sleep. I believe it was Erik because I’d been been watching the latest video on u tube the night before and believe he came along to remind me to take more care of myself. I also believe he told me in a dream because I instantly woke and thought about my leg and my health, including taking more care of myself. Thank you Erik for reminding me. I have been over doing it so I’m now taking more time for me.x
I’ve been following you guys for awhile now. I feel like Erik has been there for me in a couple of situations. I ordered the book My Son and the Afterlife last week. Well, today I was watching random YouTube videos about the paranormal. I fell asleep in my chair and was woken up by my cat calendar falling from the wall. It scared me a little because there was absolutely no reason why it should have fell. The hook was still in the wall. Then all of a sudden I thought of Erik and I said “Omg, I bet his book is the mailbox and he is trying to let me know.” Low and behold, it was out there! I just smiled and thanked him for freaking me out. Lol. I love Erik and Elisa and Jamie. You have all helped me with personal situations. I will continue to follow you guys. Love and hugs from Paris Texas.
I have been following the Erik blog for about a month and just finished reading his “My Life after Death” book. I was hoping he might prank me, but at the same time a little nervous about it, too. I work graveyard shift in a large building where I take care of all the floors. I am mostly alone and like to I talk to Erik as I am going about my work.
The other night I stood in the doorway of a large room and flipped on the lights. I noticed that it had been decorated for Halloween. There was stuff all over the room and on the walls. I glanced at the carpet from the doorway to see if it needed cleaning. But I never stepped into the room. Deciding that it didn’t need to be done at that time, I flipped the lights back off. One of the decorations on the wall (a skeleton head) started laughing and the eyes flashed on and off! Yeah, for a split second my stomach did a flip flop. It stopped after a few seconds. Then I said into the dark room, “Erik, was that you?” And the skeleton head went off again! This decoration is supposed to only go off when someone physically walks in front of it.
So, the next night, eager to put this decoration to the test and see if it was just a fluke, I went and stood in front of this decoration trying to set it off. Three times I did this and that skeleton mask just sat on the wall not moving. I went back and stood in the doorway looking at the mask from across the room. I said aloud,” Well, Erik, I guess that was you last night.” Suddenly the skeleton starts laughing again! Now I know without a doubt it was Erik! Thank you Erik!
I am an American citizen living in Canada for the last 20 years. I read the first book about Eric written by his mom a while ago in the book-store. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon the You-tube interviews just three days ago or so now… Very Cool 🙂
Anyway, I got home today and went on Youtube to listen to more interviews with Eric through Jamie and I heard about his new book he wrote, so I got in my car to go buy it at the local Chapters Book Store near my house in South Surrey.
I am clairauident , and I feel energy, and know things…ect……. ( but I sometimes doubt myself), anyway while I was driving in my car to go buy the book I asked Eric that if I have been hearing and feeling him ( I feel lots of energy when I am watching the Youtube videos and I think it is Eric) anyway…. I asked Eric that if it was him that I am hearing to make sure that the bookstore would have his book and I would be able to buy it today and read it tonight and that if it was there then I would know that I am hearing him….
So when I got there, I went right over to the section that I thought it would be in and looked… but I could not find it… but I heard Eric say… It’s here… so I kept looking and I saw one copy of his book…. and when I found it… I heard… Eric say… ” told ya”! I am feeling tons of energy now as I am writing this… I have asked him to be one of my guides and he said “sure”! I love his sense of humour . He’s funny too!
I have a daughter who is 17 and I did find a letter 3 years ago that she wrote about taking her life ( thank God she has not)…. and on top of that she says that I am crazy for believing in ” this stuff”. I have asked Eric to guide her and my 14 yr old daughter to look at his videos and to read his book, I know that he is on it now!! 🙂
Thank you Eric, Elisa and Jamie for doing this. You all ROCK 🙂
