Me: What energy techniques do you see as the most helpful? It’d be interesting to hear your take on homeopathy.
Erik: If we’re talking energy techniques, to give energy to another person, I think the best one –
Jamie (to Erik, giggling): Are you doing that “arms out” thing again, like, “Everybody listen to me?” (To me) It’s like he’s about to say something extremely important.
Me: Drum roll please!
Jamie makes a drumming sound.
Erik: Intuitive energetic healing.
Erik: You know, the kind where the human mind doesn’t fucking get in the way.
Me: Mm hm.
Erik: Where you, as a human, become—excuse this, Mom, please. Don’t kick my ass later for this.
Me: I might have to.
Erik: Oh shit. Just pretend you’re not listening.
Me (chuckling): Okay.
Erik: Where you, as a human, become this trained energetic physician who starts putting equations and processes to the healing technique and just be clear enough, clean enough and empty enough to channel the absolute, intelligent, energetic healing that needs to be done, because it’s not always that the human knows best.
(Pause as I try to clear my confusion)
Me: Okay. I don’t get that. Who are we talking about?
Erik: You’re asking what kind of energetic healing is the best.
Me: I know, and you said that you don’t want the brain to get in the way.
Erik: Intuitive, energetic healing, the kind where you don’t have to process or achieve or do in a certain amount of minutes or in a special location. No equation or process.
Me: Okay. So which—
Erik: The intuitive kind where the person that can channel energy becomes a fucking passenger, not the goddam leader! The leader should be the person who’s fucking receiving. It takes a humble-ass person to be a passenger, I’ll tell you that shit.
Am I mistaken or did he use almost every curse word in his vocabulary?
Me: Okay. I don’t like to drive, so…
Jamie (laughing): Spoken like a 90 year-old man.
Me: So which one do you like the best? Quantum Touch. Do you like that?
Erik: I don’t care about any of the titles, Mom. It’s the person, the practitioner. That’s the jackass that can get in the way, and if that practitioner is being the passenger during the healing session, then I’m fucking behind you 100%, because you’re going to be letting the process, whatever it is, come across to the highest possible intelligent, um, in the most intelligent possible way for that person that you’re working with to heal. It’s really not about if it’s reiki or Quantum Touch or EFT or—none of that matters.
Me: Okay, so basically, you like the one what works where the healer is going with the flow and not saying, “Okay, we’re going to reach this goal today, and this is going to happen when I do this.” Is that what you’re saying?
Me: Okay. That makes it easy.
Erik: You just got to get the ego and the person and the direction out of the way so you can get healed to your own degree and at your own speed.
Have a great weekend everyone!
The journey on which you’re about to embark will take you through stories that are deeply personal and involves a relationship between a mother and her son.
As a physician raised by two atheists, I had no personal belief system about life after death. In a word, I was a confirmed skeptic. As my journey progressed, my mind opened. It is my sincerest hope that yours will open as well and that you will have a greater understanding of your own life and what’s to come ahead.
Although Erik sometimes paints a rosy picture of the afterlife, time and time again he stresses that suicide is not the answer to one’s problems. If you struggle, please understand that the information in my blog and my book is no substitute for professional help. Please click here for a list of resources for help when you find yourself considering taking your own life. Know that they are readily available when you feel that hopelessness and despair that many of us feel from time to time in our lives.
I refuse all donations and ad revenue on the blog. It is my dream to one day establish a nonprofit organization that delivers a variety of spiritual services for those who have lost loved ones to suicide and cannot afford that assistance on their own. It’s a mission of love, sacrifice, and dedication.
Love and light,
