Great news guys! Jamie and Erik are almost finished with the details for the upcoming Channeling Erik event in San Diego this November. It’s going to be held in a pretty little hotel/resort on the beach. Yum. Some of the classes will take place on the beach, too! So, start making your plans peeps and email me if you’re pretty sure you’re coming so Jamie can order the appropriate number of materials. I think the conference rooms are a little small, so there may be a limit this time. 🙁 Now for Erik’s take on Ouija Boards.
Me: What about Ouija boards? Can you give me the general low down on them?
Jamie (laughing): Oh my god! Erik’s been talking to me about this! I was asking him what do we want to do in our San Diego event in November. He’s asked me a little bit about taking the Ouija boards and talking board communication boards out there and having and having part of a day learning how to use them.
Me: Okay. That’s so cool! If not a little creepy!
Jamie: What, do you actually approve of it? Do you think that it would be an okay thing?
Me: Are you kidding me? This is your and Erik’s gig. I’m just one of the paying customers! I think it’d be great. Any way to communicate across the veil is very cool in my opinion.
Erik: Mom, I still think you need to hire someone to do all the transcribing and focus all your energy on the books.
Me: No! I love transcribing, because it’s so healing for me to have the conversation with you all over again. No. No, no no.
Erik (sighing): Okay. It’s like taking away your pacie (sp?) I get it.
Me: I know.
Erik (in a sing song tone): I’ll let ya keep it.
Me (sighing): Okay.
Erik: Tell Jamie—
Jamie (to Erik): I know.
Erik: Tell Jamie to put it on the books that we are going to teach Ouija and communication techniques on talking boards.
Jamie (to Erik): That means I have to have a Ouija board and talking board for every couple of people!
Erik: Yes, Jamie. You can do that; don’t worry so much.
Jamie: All right.
Me: Anything else on the Oujia board?
Erik: Well we didn’t really talk about it.
Jamie (to Erik): Oh, really? (pause) Uh, yeah, we can. Tell, uh, well, that’s not going to be til later in the year, Erik. (to me) He says that this time, when we do the Erik conference, he wants the workshop, the workbook, to be kind of like a chart to be where you’ll be able to scan it and post it on the website for people to be able to download.
Jamie: So, if we do the Ouija, then he and I will create a document that can be scanned in and posted as a “here’s how you do it” kind of a thing.
Me: That sounds good, especially since not all of the blog members will be able to go.
Erik: We gotta help people stay in contact. They’re real instruments, but tell the people who are asking the questions that you can really fuck up bad.
Me: Yeah, because can’t you let in negative energy, negative spirits and stuff?
Erik: Oh, yeah. A whole lot of creepy shit.
Me: Mm. So, I guess there are ways to protect yourself.
Erik: Yeah. Yeah. But that’s like a whole hour lesson. Do you wanna get into it?
Me: Well, we don’t have an hour, sadly. I guess the main thing we wanted to know if whether or not Ouija boards were truly useful instruments or crocks of shit.
