Channeling Erik®



After Erik’s death, my entire family and I plunged into a state of numbness. We were shaken by a grief so profound each minute seemed like an eternity. Making the funeral arrangements from choosing a casket and burial plot to deciding what clothes he should wear in his perpetual sleep was an agony that clawed angrily at my heart. Every decision was gut-wrenching and insurmountable. All I wanted to do was lie down in a corner and sob. I’m so grateful for the inner strength my husband, Rune,  demonstrated. He too was in pain, but society mandates that the man must keep a stiff upper lip and muddle through on their own somehow. They are the silent, neglected grievers, the broken warriors who need just as much support and comfort as women.

In all the tragic turmoil, however, Erik came to provide us with comfort three times in as many days. The second night after his death, he came to my husband in an uncharacteristically vivid dream. In that dream, they were both standing near Rune’s new Ford F-350, a truck that my son drooled over with great pride. Then Erik said in joyous excitement, “I feel so wonderful! I’m so light and free. It’s an amazing feeling. Here, Pappa, feel.” And when Erik reached out to grab his father’s hands, Rune was overcome with a sense of intense euphoria unlike any sensation he’s had before. It was a feeling of joy, love, comfort, lightness and freedom that simply cannot be describe in our limited language as humans. After a few moments, Erik let go of Rune’s hands, leaned toward him and said, “This is what I felt like before.” Rune then felt the deep despair and darkness that had long tormented his son. The world felt heavy and unwelcoming. Rune knew Erik was trying to convey that he was fine, in fact happy for the first time in years. From that moment, healing for our family had begun.

Erik’s grandfather, José, had a similar experience. Let me preface this by saying that my father has never truly believed in life after death. To him, when the body dies, so does the soul. We all simply turn to dust. There is no immortality.  There is no God. There is no Heaven. Three days after my son’s death, my father called me to say that Erik had come to him in a dream. I could tell by his voice that he was quite shaken. He said Erik appeared to him as a small boy. He crawled into his lap and snuggled against his chest. My father felt, without a doubt, that Erik’s presence was real. He felt the warmth of his grandson’s small body and the love that emanated from his presence. Mind you, my father was wide-awake at the time. After a few moments, Erik looked up at his grandfather and recited a Spanish proverb that essentially translates as “things come in threes.” Dumbfounded by the encounter, my father exclaimed, “Why did this happen to me? What does it all mean? I feel so startled!” Erik’s visit challenged the very foundation of the staunch beliefs he had held for decades. As for the meaning behind the proverb, I wondered to myself if Erik was preparing my father and my mother, both in their 80s, for their own transition into the afterlife.

The third visit was to a family friend, Kelley. She has known all of my children since they were small, and our families have vacationed together several times. Erik was quite fond of Kelley, in particular. Shortly after his death, Kelley called me to recount a lucid dream she had had: “I saw Erik in a beautiful meadow sitting in a hammock with his back to me. Beside him sat a girl with long, light-brown hair.” (This may have been a former girlfriend who, 7 months earlier, suffered an accidental gunshot wound to the head by a drunken “friend” who thought he had unloaded his new revolver.) Kelley goes on to say, “People were milling around everywhere. I got the sense that everyone knew and loved each other and that they regarded Erik as some sort of celebrity. He seemed to have a movie star quality about him, like Brad Pitt. I moved closer to him and asked, ‘Why did you kill yourself, Erik? What could have possibly led you to do such a thing?’ Then he turned his head to look up at me with that charming, mischievous grin he was so famous for and began to sing a tune, ‘If you wanna be free, be free. Cuz there’s a million things to be,’ and then he calmly faced forward and hummed the rest of the song.” Kelley woke up with a start, wondering if the tune was indeed an actual song. Eager to verify her suspicions and lend meaning to the dream, she jumped out of bed, turned on her computer and typed the lyrics into the search window. The results stunned her because, although she hadn’t recalled ever hearing the tune before, it was an actual song composed and sung by Cat Stevens entitled, “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out.” Days after, the song appeared as a theme in a commercial for T-Mobile. Eventually, we would discover the true meaning behind that song as you will soon discover.

All of these dream visitations were of great comfort to my family and me although I wondered selfishly why he had not appeared to me, his own mother. In retrospect I believe I was too besieged by grief to open my mind and heart to him. But that would soon change.

    Erik, you are a true inspiration. It’s great to hear that the afterlife is total opposite to this current nightmare on this planet. I must say that I was very close to becoming atheist due to the horrors that currently exist in life. Now, I think I am going to rethink my atheist beliefs and look at life differently. It’s really hard on this planet to believe in a god that cares, well, it is for me. For the simple fact, that people suffer, children suffer, wars, etc., I think you get it. Anyways, I am so glad to hear that there is life at the end of the tunnel, and horrific experiences in life makes it worth while. You are a WARRIOR!

      I hope you read on through the archives. A lot of atheists have been converted and comforted!

        I will surely work on it. Thanks

    My 20 year-old son has a lot in common with Erik, he too has struggled with an uneasiness and anxiety since age 12. He never struggled in school, and actually excelled above other students,However, his anxiety was found to be related to a thyroid condition-Hashimoto’s and when he doesn’ t take his medicine he gets very depressed. I pray everyday that he does not take his life. He is currently on thyroid ,anti-anxiety, and antidepressant medication. I would gladly switch places with him to ease his pain. As a teacher and mother to a younger son with ADHD, I wanted to point out that Erik’s struggle in school sounds much like my youngest son who is 12. Since starting Ritalin, he has excelled. I was originally against it but his poor performance in school was causing him to be depressed. Sounds like the school he was attending may have dropped the ball in identifying a possible case of ADHD. My soul identifies with you and Erik, thanks for sharing your story. I had a similar experience to your husband’s when my grandmother’s spirit came to me right before I found out she died on the operating table. I didn’t know it was her at the time but the overwhelming and indescribable joy I felt lasted for 30 seconds or so, I was sitting in my car in a parking lot and thought the sensation was very odd.

    Elisa, first off, thank you once again for your work and thanks to Erik. I am a mother and grandmother and I have a problem with being overly protective and fearful. When I was five-years-old, my father had a heart attack in front of me (He survived, but I was forever changed.) I had 8 sisters and brothers but, at 13, my older sister was murdered. She was 20 years older but very close and her daughter was almost murdered by the same man (a tenant in their apt. bldg -much younger man on drugs). Her daughter was one of my best friends as well as my niece. Our family fell apart. My mother wouldn’t come out of her bedroom for about three days except to use the bathroom.

    Then, Mom came out of the room and made breakfast, much better acting. She said that Mona (my sister) had appeared to her and told her, “It is alright Mom, it’s so much better here.” She spoke like mental telepathy and Mom knew it was really her as only a mother can know.

    I was 13, and decided that Mom was having some kind of shock reaction. I believed in God, afterlife, etc. but this was way, way more real. Still, I thought it was probably just a grief reaction..

    Then, two days later, my other sister, who was in England at the time and couldn’t get home, called to say that she had heard Mona’s voice, like mental telepathy. Mona had said, “It is alright. It is so much better here.”

    Since that time, I have been searching for religious/spiritual truth. I got a degree in psych. and have talked with many priests, ministers, social worker types, and college profs about death, psych of dying, etc. I have also lost every one of my sisters and brothers except one, and both parents. It seems like about every two years someone very close to me has died. I know this is sounding like a “woe is me” story, but the effect has been to make me afraid every day that my only daughter or her only son will be killed and taken from me. I take meds for depression and have seen shrinks to talk about this etc. but, I wonder if I will ever be able to get through a day without being fearful about being left behind to grieve.

    I have led a very full life, but it has been difficult and sad so much of the time. I guess I am just hoping that you and Erik are for real. This is probably rude of me to ask, but are you very, very certain that Erik is really talking to you? I believe in life after death, but there are many “dark nights of the soul” in my life too. Would you ask Erik to check on my sister, Mona? I know you are busy and have millions of your own questions, but I needed to ask, just in case you would find the time.

      Gosh, you’ve been through so much.Having a large family has that as a drawback. There are such so many lives to take. As far as my beliefs go, it took me a long time to get there. Of course part of the reason was that I was raised by atheists. But then the pranks and visits came. Erik’s visit to my atheist dad really had me wondering, but still, I didn’t believe. Erik visited me in the flesh. Still I had my doubts. He turned on water faucets and unplugged appliances in front of me, dropped Airsoft BBs from the ceiling, but still, I couldn’t get to that 100% sure mark. It took hearing his voice on one of the recorded session (that was not heard during the live one) that took me there, particularly when the analysis by a sound professional confirmed the voices were not human because they left no voice print. I think I was afraid to believe for fear of finding out one day that it was not. That would be like losing Erik again and I wasn’t willing to take that chance. So, this is not the wishful thinking of a grieving mother. The science behind it helped me, of course. Read the posts, “Science Confirms Survival” and “Belief and Science.” That will help you. lLso, make your way through the archives. It might take some time but it’s worth it. So many people have been rid of their death anxiety by doing so. One young lady was so afraid to die that she could never leave her house. Now, she has no fear at all and is finally free of her bondage. Also, join the private Channeling Erik Facebook Group. You’ll never find a closer, more supportive, wiser (and often hilarious) group of people. In the end, this is your path. Take it at your own pace. I’m not hear to convince you. Others trying to convince me didn’t work. You can try to talk to your sister on one of Jamie and Erik’s grievers calls or the “call-out” calls. She doesn’t take many people on the call at a time, though. Erik brings the loved ones forward and helps them communicate if necessary. Ask the group what their experiences have been with these calls. Jamie’s site is

    Google “CDP-Choline” (also known as citicholine) against social anxiety, depression, bipolar disease, PTSD and even thyroid disease. this has changed my life and I’m coming off of all three of my antidepressants. I’m not recommending this as medical advice. Be sure you check with your healthcare professional, but many don’t know much about it yet. The studies are just now pouring in. I take 250 mg every AM and I get it at cuz I get 50-70% off of all supplements by paying something lke $70 a year. It’s hard to find in regular health stores. Regular choline doesn’t cross the blood brain barrier, so that won’t work. It costs me about $14 a month.

  • Lindsey

    I stumbled on to your blog by accident, and I have to say…..I’m offically surprised right now! I was born on September 21, 1989 at 2:59 pm. I have just recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder type 1. I am shocked beyond all belief right now……………

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Wow, there are no coincidences, you know. One of Erik’s roles is to guide people who suffered like him to the blog and/or book. You got that nudge I guess. Maybe he’s one of your guides. I hope you read on!

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Wow, and you were born one minute before Erik. That makes you the big sis!

  • Amelia Derusso

    Elisa,I lost my son a year ago,I am also so torn with grief.I had a reading with my medium on Sunday night and my son told me your Erik and him are great friends,He wanted me to read about him,so I been reading ever since.I am so incredibley besides myself.Your Amelia

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Aww, they’re buds! How wonderful!

  • phoenix

    I want to thank you for the work you are doing, Dr. Medhus, Erik, and Jamie. I stumbled across your youtube videos and have been sitting in front of the computer ALL DAY watching them! My daughter’s father passed in 2010, and I miss him like crazy. Hearing Jamie channel is refreshing to me, and the information is comforting. Still, I am grieving and cannot seem to move on. I was not with DJ when he passed, in fact, he was alone, and I wish I could have been there for him. I talk to him a lot, but I am usually crying or missing him and I suppose that my energy isn’t conducive to hearing back from him. Anyway, I have found a great deal of peace watching your videos and will continue to follow them. You are so fortunate to have Jamie. Such a gift. But, then, isn’t she an incarnated angel?? Love and Peace to you and yours……..and Thank You Erik, for it all.

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      How well I know what grief can do. Maybe you should talk to him through one of Jamie’s small group channeling calls. :)

      • phoenix

        This is precisely what I intend to do! How exciting is this!!! What an amazing gift. Thank you all…….

  • Nicole Russell

    My childs father was also Bipolar and so many steps your son experienced before his suicide so did my soal mate, Ray, he clog to material things and seems perfectly fine…one disagreement and he locked me out of a room and hung himself….Ive never told anyone but …cant remeber how shortly after…I had such a vivid dream he was sort of laughing and smiling trying to talk to me but I was CRYING so loudly I couldnt hear him I was on my knees in my dream and screaming “why!” and crying so loudly …after i woke i remeber feeling how could he be laughing….i never dreamed of him again until a few weeks later…I dreamed he was protecting me from him family who were throwing rocks and at me and killing me and i yelled to him “tell them I didnt do it, tell them what you did” and he said “I try Nikki but they dont listen”…I just bought your book on Amazon but can you tell me how you channel so frequently? and Vividly?

  • Janet

    Hello Erik, my name is Janet, my son is Josh who was 27 when he took his life on May 28,2013, I wish I new why….

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Oh Janet, I feel your pain. One of the most healing things for me was to actually speak with Erik through Jamie and other mediums. It’s really hard to find a good medium but it is well worth it. Jamie is one of the best but she’s very booked up. You can register for one of her small group calls where Eric brings forth the deceased and help them communicate. This is very powerful and healing. Kent and Cindy Lehman are also very good channelers. You could find them in my links list. Kate Sitka is another very good medium. Whoever you use, be sure to ask Erik to come along because he keeps the medium’s filters down and he also helps the deceased loved one come forward. Erik’s job is also to help the deceased communicate because some of them have trouble with that. I’ll do anything to help you. Know that I have your back. So do the rest of the members of the blog.

      • Janet

        Elisa, I would like to tell you I am so sorry for your loss, and I want to thank you for your kind words and guidance threw all this pain, I have never seen a medium so I will try to get intouch with the names you have given me. Thank you!

    Hello Janet & Erik, My name is Karen, My daughter, Dana took her life January 12 of this year. It is the saddest time of my life right now. She was my best friend & always put my interest before her own. We were so close. She has a sister who is so heart broken. Dana was 31 yrs. old. She’s came to me in dreams 3 times. My tv in the kitchen now shuts off & turns on by itself. I stumbled upon this website yesterday,which I think she kind of guided me to it. It has been so helpful to know that Erik has given us a chance to see where our children are and how they are doing. What kind of process they went through and how they are learning and teaching at the same time. Erik reminds me of my daughter because she had no filter either. She said what she thought and if you didn’t like it, oh well. She was proud to be from Brooklyn NY. Erik , if you run into Dana Koons, tell her “thanks for letting me know she around me and talk to her. She’s really a funny gal. You two would hit it off. Also tell her that I will continue to talk to her and prayer for her & love her very much, Blessings to you both. Karen.

  • Karen Helms

    Greetings to Elisa & Erik, Hello, My name is Karen, I lost my daughter, Dana This past January 12th. She took her own life. She had been in 6 rehabs the last year and married someone who was a lot older then her(19) yrs. and seem to keep her around what she called “those people”. I tried to have her come home & the day before this happened, she called me and said she was so modified & embarrassed at her actions for the past 2 yrs. She was my hero, best friend, We talked about everything. Some things I did not want to hear but she said “your my mom, who else am I supposed to tell. I’ve had 3 dreams about her and she likes to turn my t.v. on & off in the kitchen. That’s where I’m at most of the time. I still talk to her everyday & prayer for her at night. She was a true Brooklyn Girl & very proud of that. She loved kids. I hope Erik will try and find Dana Koons & tells her her mom knows she’s around, we love & miss her. And I’m so proud of her because I know she’s doing good things up there. A special blessing to you Elisa , I did the same thing u did after Erik passed, I looked up & read every book I could get my hands on . But yesterday, I was brought to this web site and the more I read, I knew my Dana had directed me to this site. Hope to get in on one of those special readings. God bless you both, and thank-you for sharing your story. Comforting to know your not the only one. Hope to talk to you soon. You truly are a wonderful & caring person. Blessings. Karen

      I’m so glad you’re here!

      • Karen Helms

        So sorry, didn’t know if you got my first message, so I sent another one. Finally, there’s other people who have been through it , going through it and will make it through it! I always told my daughters, if there’s any way to come back after I die, you’ll know I’m around. TV, radio, dreams, etc. And now it’s happening to mew/ Dana. You have to go on with your life, but I always watch for the clues. She’s a prankster, so even in death, I’m on my toes, lol Love this kid. If anyone needs to talk, please fell free. Today is a good day. Blessings to Erik & Elisa xo

      • Elisa Medhus, MD

        Sounds like Erik has met his match in the prankster department!

      • Karen Helms

        Oh believe me, if she could run this show instead of u & him, she would be talking to u or be his side kick, just so she could have some imput. She loves to be “In-charge”. If I know her, she’s already trying to figure something out. The word is out…lol. They have to meet. Bklyn Girl. Accent & All. She only been there 6 months, she may need someone to show her the ropes. Or how to stop talking so much. They might have muzzled her already lol . Blessings to all. Karen. I have a picture of her on my FB pg. if u have time , look her up. She’s the blond with her sister Hugs to you, Elisa.

  • Elisa Medhus, MD

    HAHA! They’ll be quite the pair. Heaven will never be the same.

  • Karen Helms

    I’m still wondering , Which I haven’t run across anything in your blog, How does Erik, see or look down at you from heaven. Is he with you and around your house most of the day? Does he visit you every day and do you feel his presence? Or do you just talk to him during medium’s readings? I want to know that it’s my daughter visiting me and not Erik, which I don’t think it’s him. I don’t think I’m still understanding how we all can’t connect with our loved ones, if we want, just like you do with Erik.

    That song “”If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out” was in the amazing movie called Harold and Maude 1971 film – To the friends of Erik – please watch it if get the chance. :-)

  • Susan…..Cody’s mom

    Finished the book! Have read a lot since Cody left us 12/8/13 at the young age of 17. This has been the hardest thing to face. I wish I felt his presence as much as you do Erik’s. He sends me flies cause he has an unbelievable sense of humor. I read your story and feel like Cody was so similar to Erik. Just wish he was still as loud about making his presence known. Thank you! Cody’s mom

  • Susan…..Cody’s mom

    Finished the book! Have read many since Cody my son left us on 12/8/13 at 17 year young… Reading your story and blogs provides some peace. Just wish I was getting more than the visits from flies from Cody as he always had such a huge presence, but than again he was always a jokester. Thanks for sharing….

    Your book was referred to me by a friend. What an amazing and strong woman you are and how fortunate to have the relationship you do with Erik. I have to tell you about two things that happened while I was reading your book. I am on vacation on the St. Lawrence river near Alexandria Bay. I was about 2 days into the book. I remembered reading about how Erik sometimes manifests himself in smells and as a dragonfly. One night I was awakened by the smell of men’s cologne. I did not bring any cologne with me and there was no one else in the cottage. The next day, a dragonfly landed on the finger of my nephew and stayed there for what seemed 2 minutes. The day after that, the dragonfly made it’s appearance and just hovered around fro a bout 5-6 minutes. I can only believe that those signs were all Erik validating for me. My mom passed away a couple of years ago and I have not heard from her yet. I fully expected to hear from her a while ago and am certainly ready to and in fact have been anticipating her signs. I have heard from dad but nothing from mom. I am hoping Erik can help connect us.. Thanks for sharing your story I can not wait to continue reading the blog and for your next book.

    Love and light to you and all.

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      You’re lucky Erik didn’t give you one of his nasty smells! Erik says he nudges people to the book and/or blog all the time, sometimes with the help of a deceased loved one. I think that happened with you. Thanks for the kind words!!!

    Thanx for the book, and the blog, It’s helps me in everyway:) love from Norway, Marianne<3

  • Marianne Astrid Jørgensen

    I love the book, it’s give me som much hope and comfort!
    But, i Wonder Why i cant’t feel my moter and father, and other dear one’s. My mother died suddenly at her home in 2007. I blame myself, cos i gave her my medicine and she died because of it.. And i have to live with that blame.

    She promised me to give me a sign and visit me after life, we did talk about death many times.. But i can not feel her:( it’s feels like she is gone in everyway, and it’s break my heart.

    i have seen ghost before, when I was younger and iam open and can feel other things.. But not my own family. That’s make me so unhappy, i need to know. i can’t go on and enjoy my life wihout feeling something..

    Is There something i can do, to make it happend? I hope you have some advice.. Sorry for my bad english! All best to you and Erik:)

  • Joshua Jones

    Sweet story & I am incredibly sorry for your loss. I mean this with absolutely no disrespect or malice in my heart but I have to ask, do you ever worry that it might be dangerous for someone who is potentially suicidal to read things like this & in some cases may have the ADVERSE effect of what I think you’d like to accomplish with this book? I have to imagine that sharing Erik’s “transmission” (for lack of a better term) to his father about how the “afterlife” feels as ” a feeling of joy, love, comfort, lightness and freedom that simply cannot be described in our limited language as humans” could very possibly serve as just the kind of notion some potentially suicidal people would need to help them go through with the act? For so many people right on that edge, the difference between the pain of living & the unknowns of what’s next can be so thin that often maybe all they’d need is just that kind of statement from a person who has lost someone to suicide. I am not doubting your story or your sincerity, honestly, but for people who have experienced the loss of a loved one to suicide & have not been lucky enough to have such “astral/psychic” connection & affirmation from the lost loved one, the thought of another family going through the same pain because they’re loved one got just the kind of notion they needed to believe that the next life truly is worth going to from their current life really worries me…

    We lost our 41 yr old son Jimmy 9 months ago to a heart attack. I nave received signs from him since the very day after I found him. Usually by way of anything electronic. . Mostly with my cell phone. 2 nights ago I was googling how to record messages from loved ones when I saw this site on the list. I started reading , thinking of Jimmy. All of a sudden at the bottom of this page, above the bar across the bottom with the icons, was a white bar. It was about 1/4 inch high, from the left all the way to the right of my laptop screen and it kept flashing. I asked Jimmy if that was him and it seemed to flash in answer to me. This was not on any other page I had open at that time. I started speaking to him, thanking him for still being with me and visiting me when I most needed him. The flashing stopped but the white bar remained. I had asked him one time to make sure his signs to me were obvious and he did just that, with the white flashing bar across the screen.

  • Teddy Man

    Hi. I watched channeling Jesus and was shocked to hear his response that the Shroud of Turin was genuine. Keep exploring. We (and I) have so many questions…Teddy

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Yes, and now historians are discovering that he might actually not have died on the cross. Did you hear him say “yes” when I asked him if he had a current incarnation on Earth? Listen with headphones. The YouTube “Voices from the Dead” has that response but also Erik’s. It’s clip the sound engineer sent me after concluding that the voices left no voice print so they were clearly not human.

  • Karen

    Elisa…in one conversation with Erik he said that he is pretty sure he only has to come back one more time. However, then in another conversation he says he will have to come back several times. Why do you think there is the discrepancy?

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      I truly believe Jamie is more accurate in channeling. Keep in mind that Erik learns as he goes along. He’s learned that there is no time where he is. Time is just a human construct that makes life livable here. He’s living all lives at the same time, past present and future, as are we.

  • Carol Pagano Veloz

    I so much love this stuff. I have watched a lot of the videos but have many more to go. I am interested in channeling Erik so I am following his mom’s instructions. I have not found his voice yet which I am working on that. Your efforts here are helping the people wake up to how things really are. This is absolute evidence that the veil is lifting. Human consciousness is evolving and I love being a part of it. Cheers to Erik, Jamie and Mom.

  • Rachel Lawrence

    Hi Elisa,
    My cousin is a very spiritually minded person who has told me a about your blog and channeling Erik.
    I too lost my son to suicide 3 years ago and am finding it a daily struggle to cope with the loss of my eldest and only biological son.
    Reading your story has given me comfort and hope that my son is happy I hope to that I will be able to connect with him as you have with your son xxx
    Thank you from one mother to another

  • Caroline Garrod

    after finding Erik on you tube I have enjoyed his videos very much ….I asked Erik if he would be in my dream and last night he was he was sitting on the floor and as i walked past he grabbed my leg so i fell to the ground ( in a nice way like siblings would play) sitting on the floor with him he tickled my toes and said i had funny feet! i had also asked him to send me a text message that made no sense ( a bit greedy I know ) but as soon as i woke from this dream my phone went off with a text……..this guy asked me why i wasn’t coming in because he had left the door unlocked and thought i was billy and used phrases like yo bro well i got what i asked for! thanks Erik xxxxx

      You rock, Erik!

  • Nique Totten

    After my boyfriend committed suicide 2-22-15 I began searching for answers and comfort… My religious back ground was you go to hell for it. and of course talking to the dead was for sure a sin…I just couldn’t grasp that he might be in hell. I started asking for signs. I have received many validations Feathers,quarters, front door opening on its on, music, Angel cards…And the best was discovering Eriks web site. Listening to him has put me at ease answering so many of my questions. Thank you Erik! Will you look for my Love, Aaron and help him find ways to communicate with me.Look forward to reading and listening to more of your work.Sincerely,Nique

    I don’t want to upset anyone but how true do you believe this to be? I myself for specific reasons to my life, am searching for answers of the afterlife. Have you ever asked Erik to contact a total stranger so they could know ? Or asked him to contact a relative of theirs?
    Life after death is a comfort to some, but for others, it is not whether there is life after, it is what happens, in life we may love people and then wonder, what will happen in death, will they love me still, or they may love someone who doesn’t love them and they may wonder, will i be free of the pain of rejection if i am dead.
    Or will they be judged too sinful to go where it is good?

      I think it’s wise to be an open-minded skeptic. I was for 4 years after Erik died, even at the time I published this post. Keep reading through the archives and you’ll see the science behind it, additional evidence gleaned from my experiences and those of blog members all over the world, etc. You’ll learn about judgment, about the human experience–why we’re here–and much more.

        What i really seek is to know if i will finally be happy, ie will love i cannot have now, come to me in death? And will i be condemned for not having faith in god when i find a total absence of him in my life and therefore choose not to believe in any of the many religions or denominations but to wait for even a dream visit by god or an angel to tell me the true religion.
        I wish my own relatives would contact me to help me answer some questions but of course they dont

    My husband took his own life September 5, 2013. I struggle with the darkness.. even though Ive tried to go on with my life including re-marrying. nothing has worked to get the images out that is now burned into my mind. I threw myself on him trying to get him to wake up, covered in his blood… all this burned like a torch in my mind.. I cant wake up from this nightmare..

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      It sounds like you have PTSD on top of everything else, sweetie. Have you ever heard of EMDR? I had to see Erik after he shot himself in the head. It was a hollowpoint bullet so it did a lot of damage. It was a sight no mother should see. Eventually I tried EMDR and it helped a lot. I’d also consider talking to your husband through one of the CE mediums (or any good one) or through one of Jamie and Erik’s small group channeling calls.

      • Rose Garner

        yes i saw my husband too.. he did it in front of me.;same thing.. hollowpoint bullet… Im not sure what EMDR is? I saw one medium/psychic and she said he was sorry and he loved me etc… but wasnt good enough for me… Ive only had one dream about him.. I want to have more.. I want to see him again..

    My mom was my best friend. When she was diagnosed with lung and bone cancer on Jan 9, 2010, I moved in with her for 14 months and took care of her every need, also drove long distances for her chemo, radiation, and blood transfusions. I held her in my arms as she took her last breath. I am both proud and humbled that I was able to do all this, but I paid a high price, lost my job and my house, filed bankruptcy, etc. I would do it all over again because I learned that it is indeed better to give than receive and true bonding between two human beings.I envy those who have had contact with their loved ones after they’ve passed over and those who say they feel their loved one’s presence. I haven’t even dreamed about my mom, and she has been gone 4 years now. Can anyone explain why some people have “visits” and others don’t?

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      You might get some insight if you search “electromagnetic” in the search bar. I think the post is “Belief and Science” but I’m not sure.

    where’s the rest of the story? in your blog?

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Yes, if you make your way through the archives, you’ll find it and more.

      • Shelley Lester Dodge

        thank you I have been fascinated with the interview’s and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your delightful son with us! I have a wonderful son and cannot imagine the grief you felt in losing Erik but I hope you know that by sharing him with us you’ve helped many. Have you heard of Delores Cannon’s work? Amazing read! She has passed so would love to hear from her now that she’s on the other side?

      • Elisa Medhus, MD

        Yes, I’ve heard of her. She’s on my list of people to interview. :-)

    I am the ultimate skeptic, in so many ways, yet I wonder. I lost my Aeric on May 29th, to suicide. I have been reading since then, wondering even more, without making up my mind. I had a brief dream about Aeric a couple of nights ago, and felt that I needed to go to his ‘tree” to speak with him, somehow. I saw him sitting on the huge rock from which he took a final step, wanting to talk with me. I made the hike up to his tree, but I didn’t hear from Aeric. When I got home, I was looking for books to read on Amazon, and found your story about your Erik. I am half way through your book, trying to comprehend, trying to open my mind. My heart and soul are eternally open, and I am listening, looking, and trying to let my son know how very much he was loved, adored, and how very much he is missed, beyond belief. I feel like half of me is gone: my arms ache to comfort him, my hands to caress his lovely head, and for my eyes to see his smile, and my ears to hear his quick, funny chuckle. Aeric was also bi-polar, struggling deeply with unimaginable pain. I only wish I had known how to help him.

    Dr. Medhus,

    I just discovered you today through your youtube videos with Jamie. I am very happy to be joining the forum here. I lost a good friend to suicide three years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think about her and wish I could talk to her.
    I have always been interested in the afterlife and channeling, both of which I believe very strongly in.
    I am really excited to be here.

    – Shawn

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      We’re excited to have you here! Be sure to join the private Channeling Erik Facebook Group. It’s a great bunch.

    Hi i learned a’lot from this Blog thank’s a’lot. Spiritually i have obtained very valuable knowledge. The many are ONE. By the way come visit me Erik i have a very high frequency so i’ll be able to spot you a mile away and end up pranking you before you prank me. hehe

  • SnakeEyes

    I don’t want to judge his mother, and I don’t know details. But it sounded as if he needed a school where he would be more accepted, and understood. To have kids and even {VILE} “teachers” call him “stupid” is heartbreaking to hear. I am hoping she switched him to a school that was not as mainstream after that –
    This was all so sad I couldn’t read the whole story yet, but I think I will get the book.

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Yes, I did send him to a charter school and that helped a lot. Not enough, I guess. Thanks for watching the show. I thought it was funny that Erik pranked him. He seemed a little freaked!

  • Lisa

    I just wanted to say Hello to Elisa and of course Erik… Elisa I wanted to just let you know as a mother of 3 young adults girls I am so happy that you created such a wonderful place for anyone to come and connect. I am now at ease after reading Erik’s book that life does continue it never ends. I have been talking about Erik to my girls for the past year. They are very open as I am, and I hope that as a family we can learn more from you and Erik. (Thank you Elisa & Erik)

    Hi Elisa, thank you so much for this and your courage to share. My sister passed away in Feb and I have been looking out for signs. Most days I see 11.11 a lot and double numbers and I think maybe its a sign from her. I have a 14 year old son and we are going through a sensitive time. The other night I said to my sister’s picture ‘please give me a sign that you’re around’. The next morning I found your videos on youtube and became intrigued so I came to the website, bought Erik’s book, and spent the day reading. My heart was pounding as I began to read and I cried a little. I asked Erik, I know I’m new, but please if I see the name Erik anywhere else today or my sister’s name Lisa in your book I will know its a sign. Lo and behold I later went on Facebook for the first time that day and the first thing I saw was a friend had posted that her dog called ‘Eric” had just passed away and has gone to heaven. My comment was obviously RIP Eric I couldn’t believe what I was writing (didn’t even know she had a dog). I was a bit stunned at that! Then coming back onto the website I realised (dumb me) that Elisa has Lisa in it which is all over the book of course! Further looking on the site I have seen a post entitled a very odd saying that only my sister used to say as she was very funny. Lastly I just went on Facebook again and my friend has posted a pic of her dog smiling and another pic of a cartoon dog with wings which says “when you feel me in your heart just look up, I’m right there”….. I think I got my answer? Now I just looked down this page and the post 2 down is by Lisa! This stuff is freaking me out now but I love it! Thanks so much :)

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Sounds like Lisa and Erik are working together to get your attention!

  • Peggy Mistretta

    Hi Elisa I love watching n listening to Erik give so much information from the other side! I would love to ask Erik if Gary Spivey is right about us having demons for everything that is wrong with us. He focuses so much on this that it scared me. I would like to know if this is true? Thanks so much I look forward to hearing from Erik!

  • Helen Moulford

    In which of your books can I read about what Erik saw after he died? I ask because in July last year i had a series of OBE’s when I had cancer surgery. I was able to tell my beloved husband, who was a scientist and not as spiritual as me, what I had seen. He died suddenly on February 6th of this year, but is not gone from me. I know death is not the end, but i still wonder where I went during those times, and why.

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Both, but I’d start with the second one, My Life After Death.

  • tman dunk

    Hello. I am a christian and I really was very offended by your ”channeling Jesus Christ” video you did and I believed that your video was very deceptive because you never talked to Jesus. Jesus said a lot of things in the bible which he did not say while you guys were so how channeling him. Why is that Elisa? Jesus said that he is the only way to God but you guys are saying that they are many ways to God. BTW you should always test these spirits because some spirits are demons.

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      What you’re saying Jesus said is the account of other men. I believe what’s coming directly out of his mouth. Things get lost in translation as they go from mouth to mouth to mouth, plus organized religion has heavily edited the Bible to suit the needs of those in power.

      • tman dunk

        You were speaking to a demon pretending

  • Riskie

    I found this sight thru looking at your book on Amazon. I’m new to all this, so not sure how it works. My 18 year old son committed suicide 48 days ago in his bedroom, here at our home. We found him when we went to get him up for school. No warning signs, no apparent problems that would cause him to make this decision. He had gotten a scholarship for college, had many friends and was always smiling and joking. It was a total, numbing shock to everyone.
    My sister, who lives with us for the time being, started getting ‘thoughts’ from him. She isn’t one to believe in such things, but the messages were so powerful, she started writing them down. We told our trauma Therapist about it, and she called it ‘channeling’. I’m looking forward to being in a discussion about this.

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      I’m so, so sorry for your pain. I hope you read through the archives, because I think that will help you. There’s a lot a science in it and that helped me. Maybe you should also join the private Channeling Erik Facebook group. They’re all so loving and supportive. Reading Erik’s book will give you a detailed idea of what death was like for your son, what his life as a spirit is like, and what his new home is like.

      • Riskie

        Thanks so much for your quick reply. I’m ordering his book and have read a good bit of the archives here and enjoyed them. Erik, like Casey, is full of humor and wit! Case left us notes, which was both comforting and heartbreakingly sad. We didn’t know he was suffering so much and, like Erik, was self-medicating to try to ease the pain any way that he could. Having suffered w/depression and diagnosed Bipolar myself, I should have seen SOMETHING. I’ve always been open with him about my struggles and told him to come to me and we’d get him help. He knew that therapy, along with medication had saved my life. The guilt that I carry is tremendous. I put too much pressure on him. Nothing was good enough; he could always do better. I just wanted him to be the best he could be. I didn’t want him making the same mistakes I had.
        I just want him to know how much we love him and miss him more than he could ever imagine. I want to know that he is okay. Believing he is speaking to us, via my sister, has been very comforting and has allowed me to release some of my guilt. I don’t think it will ever all go away, though.

        Sometimes we push them so that they collect the wins they need to help their self-esteem. Think about your intentions. They were always good.

    Dear Elisa & Erik, I am a 37 year old mum of three. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse & domestic violence. When I was 17 years old I tried to kill myself. I almost succeeded I spent 4 days in a coma on life support. I took an overdose. I am very lucky now to have beautiful children and a great partner who is kind and caring. But I still struggle with post traumatic stress and every day is a struggle to stay alive. I am going through a very bad episode right now and I have been considering ending my life for good. Through a synchronistic series of events I stumbled across you guys. Your videos have helped me so much. Whilst typing this message an electric blue flash of light appeared in the corner of the room. Although I am still in a bad place, your work has shifted my vibration to a more positive one. You guys truly are angels. Thank you Erik & Elisa with all of my heart x

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      Maybe that blue flash was Erik! He might have nudged you here meaning you are meant to stay. Consider reading the post “A Break from Being Human.” Also, there are posts about people who feel like they don’t belong. Those might apply to you. Can’t remember the title but it’s something like, “Are you from Mars.” Maybe search using the keyword, Mars.

      • Dark Matter

        Thank you so much Elisa, funnily enough I have just clicked on your latest twitter post and a pic of Erik popped up wearing a blue t shirt. Thanks again xxx

  • llabier

    HI Elisa, I am so in awe of your work and your dedication to your son. I am new to this blog and find so much hope from your blog and video interviews. I had recently asked Erik to send me a sign that he is indeed with us… Day 1, I received a telephone call from my own phone? (the caller ID showed my own number) and no one was on the other line, Day 2, I came home from work and my house lights were on (I’m 99.999% sure I shut them off before leaving for work), Day 3 I used a recently laundered towel after my shower and it smelled like cat urine … I do not own a cat! It sounds like Erik’s sense of humor (from what I have been reading)… Anyway, Elisa, I think you are doing amazing stuff and let the haters hate…. stay strong to your convictions.

    • Elisa Medhus, MD

      It sure does sound like him!

  • Lala

    My father has always said in the past that when u die, it’s like before u were born, he said do u remember that? And I would say no and he would say that that is death, u feel and see nothing!
    When I was somewhere between 7 and 9 I had a “dream” and in it there was a swirly light on the wall right next to my bed and I started screaming that I was allowed to go through it so why wouldn’t my dad let me, “he promised I could”, according to my dream and when I woke up my dad was shaking me awake and I knew then that what he said was wrong, I don’t remember how or why but I believed that we all made our own “heaven as such” and that what my dad said was so wrong! I wish with all my heart that I had told him that but I know he would never believe me so I worry about when he dies that that is what he will see, but after following Eric’s journey through the afterlife I truly believe that what I saw was true and also that my dad will find his way :)

    Thank you to u and mum for making my life complete again and remembering why I’m here :) love u Erik and Elisa x

    • Lala

      By the way Erik thanks for the dirty smelly sock smell I get most mornings when I go in the lounge:) I always feel loved that u are visiting :) but I can really do without the smelly egg fart smell thank you :) greetings from Australia :)
