Just in case you guys missed it, blog member, Sarah Leach, won the contest by being the first one to guess that I was married in 1983 and like to roam the earth in sloppy t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops. Yeah, I’m a bit of a slob. As a doctor, I spent enough time in dresses and high heels to last several lifetimes! Congratulations, Sarah! Emma and I will have your session in a month or two!
I’d also like to invite a few more of you to volunteer to come on this week’s radio show to share how Channeling Erik and/or Erik has changed your life, hopefully for the better. All you need to do is email me the number you’ll be calling from so I can pick it from the studio board. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. First, Erik will discuss what death is like, a subject that should interest all of us except you immortals out there.
Last but not least, click HERE for the Australian Channeling Erik blog courtesy of medium, Alison Ailfinn. It’s a great post!
Now for today’s Best of Erik, a mind-bending one at that!
Me: Here’s another question form a blog member. He said is past and future lives already happened, and he can interact with them, and he said at the birthday parties—I don’t get that—they have there spirits shift between identities they have been—different races, genders, etc. So, that means we can both be and interact with other incarnations past and future I presume. What’s that like? Birthday parties? I don’t understand that part.
Jamie: I don’t either. Erik wants to know if this guy’s drinking.
Jamie and I giggle.
Me: Okay. Well, let’s just take the birthday part out of it. What’s it like to be able to interact with other incarnations of yourself Erik?
Erik: It’s really easy. It’s kind of like interaction with your inner voice and your emotions. You know, you don’t feel like they’re so far off from each other, but they have different viewpoints. It’s like that.
Me: Is it something like you see and go shake hands with somebody externally and talk to them or is it something internal?
Erik: No, it’s more of an internal connection.
Erik: Yeah, because if it’s more of, “Hey I see you; let’s go shake hands,” then why aren’t you running into yourself all the time? It can happen, but it’s very rare.
Erik: It’s not so helpful to have that kind of face-to-face bluntness. That can throw someone into Whackyville.
Me: I guess so!
Jamie (laughing): Whackyville!
Me: Have you done that?
Me: Describe one of those instances.
Erik: Where I’ve gone into—
Jamie: He’s clarifying. (to Erik) Yeah, we wanna know what it was like when you went into the other life and how it was to connect to yourself.
Me (sarcastically): Oh, of course.
Erik: I was! I was impressed that I was so intelligent and, um, that I had such a zest for life, you know, whereas here I was a little out of sorts.
Me (with sympathy): Aw.
Erik: So, it’s just so interesting to see how different your experiences are but yet it’s still you having them.
Me: Interesting. When was that in terms of earthly time?
Erik: Hm. It was after I passed.
Me: So, it’s in the future?
Me: Do you know a year and a place?
I can hear Jamie muttering letters under her breath.
Jamie: Uh, it’s a foreign name.
Jamie (singing): A-N-A-K-A-U-M. Anakaum, Anakaun? Something like that. A-N-A. Maybe it’s A-N-A-U-K-A-N. He keeps using the same letters, but they’re in a little bit of a different order, so I’m sure that I’m not spelling it right.
Me: Okay. What year is it or will it be?
I can hear Jamie muttering numbers under her breath.
Jamie: He’s counting generations, and he’s saying it’s five generations from now.
Me: Okay. What about a past incarnation? Have you interacted with a past one?
Me: And were you stupid?
Jamie (laughing hard): He gets such a kick out of that.
Erik: I’ve had lives where I’ve been—let’s not say stupid—but very basic.
Jamie: He’s talking about a life in Africa
Me: So, you interacted with that personality, that Erik personality in the past, and what did you think? What was it like?
Erik: I wondered why we all couldn’t be that simple anymore. It felt like I was in a completely different world, like a completely different planet.
Me: Interesting. Anything else before we go on?
Erik: Nah. I can bore you. I can bore you more with other lives.
Me: No, you can never bore me, Erik. Well, here’s another one. If we know our future selves and can be with them, even if mostly in an internal way, how does that work with free will? I mean, did you know how you would die when you incarnated, or was that unknown due to free will? And if your death was unplanned or unexpected before you incarnated, did that change you future self when you got back Home? Oh my god, that’s a tough one to wrap my mind around.
Erik: Um, they coexist. That’s like the same as, “How do I influence this person, myself, and still maintain free will?” You just do. That’s not even a question.
Me: Well, did you know how you would die when you incarnated?
Erik: I knew it was going to be a short life, yes.
Erik: But I didn’t know how, no. That wasn’t part of it.
Me: So, the unknown, uh, or was that unknown due to free will? So, your free will crafted that method of death?
Me: Okay. And if your death wasn’t planned or expected before you incarnated, did that change your future self when you went back Home?
Me: What does that mean, exactly? I don’t understand what this person’s asking here.
Erik: You know, if you didn’t plan that exit, and then you created that exit, does it screw your shit up when you get back to Heaven?
Me: Oh. Okay.
Erik: It doesn’t screw your shit up! That’s like saying there’s a cause and effect and punishment set up, and there’s not. It just is what it is, so nothing’s getting fucked over by your free will.
Me: Ah, I see! So, you didn’t know. You just signed up and said, “I want a short life. So, you wanted the struggles. You wanted the short life, then you wanted to go back Home to do what you’re doing now.
Me: And you probably didn’t want to struggle very long, because it’s so painful, but you wanted just enough struggle to, you know, gain the wisdom, compassion and soulfulness to better accomplish what your doing now. Is that what you’re saying?
Erik: Ching! Yeah.
Jamie (with a soft giggle): Ching.
Jamie (Laughing): I’m just—ching! It’s just funny hearing him say just strange noises, sounds. I think it’s rubbing off on me, because the other day I made a really funny sound, and my kids just stopped and looked at me, and I went, “It’s a sound effect, guys.”
Jamie: So, I thought, “Oh my god. Erik is teaching me bad habits!”
Me: Oh, no!
Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!
