    Here’s a three-part series on God and religion. 

    Me: What does God look like and how was He or She created? I think we’ve asked this before, but a blog member wants to know or maybe just needs clarification.

    Erik: What does God look like? God is energy and can present itself to you anyway that YOU feel that you want to identify with God. If you’re thinking omnipresent and full of energy, that’s what you’re going to get. If you’re thinking white guy with a beard, that’s what you’re going to get. If you identify with God as a woman, that’s what you’re getting.

    Me: Well, what does God look like when He or She or It looks into the mirror?

    Jamie and Erik laugh.

    Me: No seriously! What does God see in the mirror?

    Erik: Mom! The mirror? The mirror is US.

    Me: Oh, whoa!

    Erik: You know, God divided God’s energy to know God’s self by going through us. We’re the many, many mirrors.

    Me: So God isn’t inherently a white ball of light or anything, right? Unless I want to identify with him that way.

    Erik: Right. God is us and we are God, part and whole.

    Me: So, how was God created then? I’m guessing that since linear time is an illusion, that God always “was.” But we want you, the expert, to intervene here.

    Erik (laughing) Did you just call me an expert?

    Jamie (giggling): He thinks that’s funny. He’s repeating what you were saying about God always being there, but humans can’t understand that there is there is no beginning or end. You know, we’re not getting born, then getting older, then dying and disappearing, but that’s what most people tend to think. That’s their frame of mind.

    Erik: God Source or God Energy has always existed. It was not created with the Big Bang. It didn’t grow with evolution. We’re the ones—humans—who were created by the Big Bang and evolution. We can’t compare ourselves to God Energy, and that’s what humans will automatically try to do.

    Me: Okay.


    Me: So, is there any one correct or “right” religion?

    Erik steps back to let the angel answer this one.

    Angel: No there is not. All religions hold some elements of truth in them and some element of untruth. So when one chooses to go into a particular religion, one should choose the one that most fits with their soul and their highest belief. There is no one religion that right and there never will be until one crosses over to the other side.

    Me: I suppose the truths lie somewhere in the commonalities.

    Angel: Yes, the communalities when choosing one that is of the highest and holds the most truth are the ones that believe that there is a God, that there is Love, that God does not punish and send people to Hell, as some religions believe. As long as it is filled with Love and does not involve harming other people—that religion holds the most truth.


    Me: Okay, let’s ask this one again. Is there any “right” religion, Erik? I know the angel answered that when I asked it during a session with Jeannie, but let’s see if you have anything to add.

    Jamie: God, he like leans back, and he throws his arm out wide like to slice something in half.

    Erik: NO! There is no right one.

    Me: Yeah, that’s what your angel instructor said.

    Erik: And there’s no “wrong” one either. Don’t forget that. There’s no wrong one, cuz even all those cults that people create—

    Me: Um hm.

    Erik: Those people needed that type of structure or that type of control to feel safe.

    Me: Yes, and I’m sure that with some religions, even the negative aspects are teaching models for the collective consciousness, too.

    Erik: Yes. The only thing that really gets my goat, personally, is when one religion starts pointing fingers at another one and says, “You’re not right! You’re not right!” (He says this in a really whiny voice.)

    Me: I know, and they all have threads of commonality that they can and should embrace.

    Erik: Oh, easily they could.

    Me: It just all seems to break apart when mankind massages a religion into a tool for oppression, control, or the satisfaction of greed.

    Erik: We’re getting there; we’re getting there! Humankind is coming together to save the place where we live—the earth. And in learning how to save the place where we live, we’re going to have to find out who people are instead of what they believe in. Then, those belief systems are gonna broaden, and we’re gonna embrace each other.

    Me: That’s a beautiful thought.

    Erik: Now, we’ll never dance under one same sun.

    Jamie: One same sun. Like the sun in the solar system. I think that’s what he means.

    Me: Yeah, sure.

    Erik: We’ll all view it so differently, but at least we’ll be able to keep our individuality. Those differences will be respected. Finally, we’ll stop pointing fingers.

    Me: Well, it’s about time!

    Erik: Of course there’ll always be groups who enjoy pointing fingers, but at least the balance will be healthier. The pointers will be at a lower ratio.


    Me: In 2012, what it the role of organized religion?

    Jamie: In this year, what is the role of organized religion?

    Me: Yes.

    Jamie (laughing hard): He gave me the image of a baby pacifier, like lots of them.

    Me: Oh, no!

    Jamie: On street corners—really big ones.

    Erik: Just to help people pacify and find a connection. A wiser question would be to ask what kind of role it will play in 2015, 2020, 2025 and more in the future, because they are going to dwindle out. They’re going to be more places where we learn how to be better people. Rather than learning how to connect to a god that’s been defined by them, they’ll be learning how to connect to the god that’s inside of us.

    Me: Ah, I love that idea!

    Erik: That’s way out, but we’ll get there.

    Me: Yeah. The same guy asks this: Two of the major religions believe that people outside their faith are either infidels or are going to hell for not accepting Jesus. That doesn’t come across as inclusive or loving. How do the people of those faiths reconcile that duality? How can they say that and turn around and say that God is merciful and embraces everybody? That’s such a great question!

    Erik laughs hard.

    Erik: That’s the glitch in the system that we’ve all been talking about. Clearly, this reader has been able to identify it himself, but the people who are in it can’t see it. They can’t see, you know, that in—

    Jamie (to Erik): What is that? The tree for the forest? You mean the forest for the trees, Erik!

    Erik: Yeah! Oops. And that’s where we, the people who do comprehend, extend compassion and just let them be who they need to be and wait for the day when they want to wake up.

    Me: Okay. So, in other words, they don’t reconcile that duality.

    Erik: No, it’s not even on their marker. That’s like—

    Jamie (laughing, to Erik): What? Between Hell and Heaven? Why is that funny?

    Me: Because that’s duality, I guess.

    Erik: Because they say God is omnipresent; God is omni-being—

    Jamie: Omni-something.

    Erik: Omniscient. But Hell is supposed to be the absence of God? How do you reconcile that duality, Baby?

    Me: Yeah, really!

    Erik: It’s that human need to measure, compare and contrast, and it does NOT work in the spiritual realm. But religion is that place in between being human and being spiritual, so they hold onto both concepts, and it doesn’t roll well.

    Me: Ah, interesting.

    Jamie (a bit stunned): Okay. Brilliant!

    Me: You’re really doing well today, Erik! I’m very impressed with you, today. Of course I’m impressed every time we talk.

    Jamie (giggling): He scruffs his hair up when you gave him the complement.

    Me: Aw!

    God and Ants

    Posted in: God, Thought

    I want to thank everyone for supporting Erik. He was crazy happy in our session day before yesterday, and he said it’s all because of how you guys are loving his book, writing reviews and spreading the word. A number of people who aren’t even blog members have been pranked by him, and so far they’ve all said it was great fun. Please continue the good work for him by writing reviews and sharing on your Facebook timeline!

    This entire Fall will be busy with radio shows, print interviews and TV. Fox just contacted my wonderful publicist, Eileen, the other day, asking for me to appear! Eileen is great. She’s very passionate about Erik’s book and feels like it’s part of the important work she’s here to do, spiritually. So she’s a very spiritual woman, driven to do good by following her heart of gold. Erik adores her and she, him. 

    I know; I know. I have a lot of announcements during the book launch. My interview on the Journey to the Center of Tammi show will be aired from 1:00 PM CT on. Go HERE to listen. I also have Coast to Coast coming up Saturday at 11:00 PM PT and Live with Lisa Phoenix Sunday. Here’s information about that:

    Elisa Medhus 9.13.2015 - Version2

    Last thing, and I’m mostly thinking out loud here: I really want to write a “Dear Abby” type column for a magazine where people can pose questions to Erik, personal or otherwise, but am at a loss where to begin. I’ll probably ask you guys for questions, then ask Erik for the answers and create an article to send to magazines like Spirituality & Health. Maybe there are other magazines along those lines. If you know of any, let me know. I also want to do the same thing via radio. I’ve heard that BlogTalk radio isn’t very good, but there are others like OM-Times Radio, Transformational Radio and others with a spiritual bent. If you guys know of any that you like, let me know. Price is an issue, though. I don’t plan on making money with the show. It’ll just be a public service from me, so the monthly fee can’t be insane. Of course if a company wants to advertise and just cover the overhead, I won’t refuse that, but I’m okay with paying it myself. Money, where Erik is concerned, is a very touchy subject with me. I don’t mind having expenses covered like for my publicist, the sessions, web hosting fees, etc., but I cannot, cannot make money beyond that. Then there’s the question of what to call it. “Ask the Dead Dude” might be a little harsh, but it’s Erik’s still. It could also be as simple as “Ask Erik.” Whatever it’s called, it’ll be so nice to open Erik up to the public more. I’ll let you know when I open things up for question submissions. 

    Enough, already! Here’s the post for the day!

    Me: Here’s a question from a blog member: “If God is and always has been complete, perfect, omnipotent, infinite and unified, why did It ever appear to fragment to create the material world, different universes and ultimately us? If It is truly perfect and complete in all ways, then why would It need to evolve through individualized aspects of itself?” Good question.

    Erik: That person is defining perfectionism and flaw-free. All of those flaws, from a spiritual perspective, are what makes things perfect exactly the way they are. So what’s happening, basically, is that everything that exists is going through all the different scenarios like it’s being run through a computer program. There is no end to all the possible scenarios because you can piece and put together in an infinite number of ways. Because consciousness is the driving force behind all that, It gets to experience all of this, and it becomes, in the level of a little bubble of individualism, aware of the infinite collective that It is. When you go into spirit and you’re collected into the collectiveness of who you are—the God part of who you are—you already know all that shit. Some spirits choose to shed their individuality completely and become part of the collective, “permanently.”

    Me: Yeah, use air quotes because there is no time.

    Erik: They just sit back and chill and become part of every possible experience that can exist—and those are infinite. Those experiences don’t stop because they’re like a rolling ocean. All the different waters are constantly moving in different directions, in every direction.

    Me: So you can be your “God Self” and your individual self at the same time since there is no time, right?

    Erik: Fuck, yeah, or you can choose one or the other.

    Me: But since there is no time, you have to be both or neither.

    I’m giving myself a headache.

    Erik: Like I said, time is subjective. It depends on what you’re perceiving at any given moment. If you’re choosing to be an individual while you’re in spirit, you have to involve what you perceive as time to a certain degree to create that whole linear progression of things. You don’t label it time, though. I’d have to do that to create the experience of walking through a field like I talked about before.

    Me: Okay. Anything else on that?

    Erik: I think that’s good.

    Me: How did thoughts begin—and creativity? Well, I guess thoughts are a form of creativity.

    Erik: From the perspective of the collective, they’ve always been, just like everything has and will always be. So they didn’t begin anywhere. That would imply that there’s time. There isn’t. But from a human perspective? Well, fuck, where do I begin with that, because it can be traced back and back and back to way before the solar system was created. You can trace it back to every iteration of this universe.

    I’m completely lost.

    Erik: Let me make it simpler by starting with Earth, herself. When Earth was born, the potential for thought began with the very rocks that created her. Then, creatures evolved and those thoughts were in there. In order for those creatures to survive, they needed to be creative. That gets expressed, in human beings, in their own way. When humans evolve into something else, and they will, creativity will be expressed in another way.

    Me: Fascinating.

    I wish I had asked for clarification. You know how you think you understand only to rethink it and realize you don’t? That’s what happened with me here.

    Me: Do other life forms think differently than we do?

    Erik: Sure. There are beings that think a lot like human beings, and there are some that think a lot differently.

    Me: Give me an example of one that thinks very differently.

    Erik: Not on Earth? Let me think.

    Me: Or on Earth. I don’t care. How about both? Let’s give an example of each. That’d be cool.

    Robert: He shows himself looking through a book. He’s pulling from his own lives or what his soul has lived as other lives. It’s interesting. He’s showing me this little bubble of Erik, and inside of that bubble there are an infinite number of lives going on. They all fall under the umbrella as “Erik.” Then there’s a greater bubble that encompasses that bubble and the same thing is going on inside of that. It’s a hierarchy thing. But then he squishes it all together to show it’s all the same thing. What is that, Erik?

    Erik: It’s just a metaphor for how we’re collectively all the same thing. Let me pull up a good one. Ants. Ants are social like humans are. So that’s one way we can relate to them. We live in colonies and things like that. When I lived as an ant—

    Robert (chuckling): Were you somebody’s aunt?

    Erik: Ha ha, dude. It’s almost like you’re living in this program where you rely on scent like you’re a train on rails. The rails represent the scent patterns. And you just kind of follow that rail everywhere and do what you need to do based on what the chemicals are telling you to do. There’s a little bit of visual stuff going on, too, and a little bit of communication going on in other ways, but it’s a different kind of awareness. It’s all about, I don’t want to say it in a way that makes people judge ants—

    Me: No, we love ants!

    Erik: I’m trying to pick my words carefully. It’s like you’re following this program based on, “What do I need to do?” “Go pick up that rock. Bring it back to this place. Put it down. Now, go back here. Wait, I need to go over here and grab some food.” It’s this constant state of doing that, from a human perspective, seems mindless, but it’s not. It’s serving the greater good of the colony.

    Me: So their thought processes are about doing.

    Erik: Right. Pure doing without analysis or judgment.

    Me: Or putting emotions to it?

    Erik: Well, they have emotions. Everything does.

    I’ll have to ask some clarifying questions later.

    Erik: Their emotions stay very calm, cool and collective because there are no waves going on. No drama. They’re doing what they know they were meant to do.

    Me: What do their emotions look like?

    Erik: Like a calm, tranquil lake. There’s just this constant feeling of what humans might call comfort.

    Me: So there’s only one emotion?

    Erik: When I tap into that life, that’s the only one I pick up on. There’s never any fear. Even when we got into fights with other colonies, it was still like a seesaw that stays balanced.

    Me: We could learn a lot from ants!

    Erik: Yeah, because they never feel slighted. They never think, “I’m missing out on something!” or anything like that. They feel connected to this greater colony. There’s no distress. Nothing.

    Man they look pretty pissed when I accidentally step on their anthill.

    Me: We should be more like that.

    Actually, I’m wondering if that’d be boring.

    Me: Okay, give me a weird example of how thoughts might work in another dimension like an alien one.

    Robert: That’s just what he was getting ready to do.

    Erik: There are aliens who process their reality and think the way humans do, but it’s more expansive than that. For instance, they accept the fact that what their reality tells them can be different from what another reality of someone from the same or different reality tells them. I’ll go back so you can relate this to human beings. A person who sees ghosts.

    Me: Okay.

    Erik: In that alien species, if they have someone who sees ghosts, no one else thinks they’re crazy or has to be hospitalized. They recognize that that’s their reality, and it’s different—still as real, but different. They don’t judge how one reality is for another. That’s one example, but I have an even weirder one.

    Me: Oh god.

    Erik: There are entities that don’t process things visually. They process things numerically.

    Me: Weird!

    Erik: Yeah. I use numbers because that’s what humans know. So the only way they think is through mathematics.

    Me: Wow. Interesting! Oh, I bet Stephen Hawkings was one of those who have come back as a human.

    God, Part Two

    Posted in: God

    I’m doing the coolest experiment as a vlog, y’all! I have three glass jars, each filled with a little rice that’s then covered with water. Every day for a month, I’m going to say, ‘Thank you’ to jar #1, ‘You’re an idiot!’ to jar #2 (I always feel really bad when I do that one.) and I completely ignore jar #3. (I feel a little guilty doing that, too.) The purpose is to see what effect intent/thought has on another life form. I’ll post it when it’s done. I hope I wasn’t supposed to use distilled water or measure equal amounts of rice and water to the nearest gram. If that’s the case, the experiment’s doomed, and I will have been uncharacteristically nasty to a living creature for nothing. Actually, is rice living?  Okay, here’s the post. Last one for God.

    Me: You also said that God is Love. So Love is a form of energy then, I guess.

    Erik: It is. Love is the basis of energy especially [where Earth] is concerned.

    Me: What do you mean?

    (Long pause)

    Jamie: He’s talking in circles. Hold on. He’ll get it together; he’ll get it together.

    Erik: For Earth’s vibrations and for Earth’s purposes, being human—remember I keep trying to preach that being human is more about being an emotional being, about emotions. That’s kind of the special treat about being human. So if we’re looking at how God Source energy interacts with Earth life, it’s going to do so with emotional character. That’s the role that it plays with us. That’s the value for us. If you want to go live a different life on a different planet, then you’re going to get a slightly different character. Maybe it’s about survival. Maybe it’s about community. Maybe it’s about conflict. Here, it’s specifically about authentic emotional quality.

    Me: What do you mean?

    Erik: What do you mean, what do I mean?

    We can play this game all day.

    Erik: I mean if you’re coming to Earth, if you’re choosing human life, you’re choosing a life that’s based on emotion. That’s the value of coming to Earth.

    Me (confused as usual): Now what does that have to do with God? Maybe I need another sip of coffee!

    I take a sip. Actually a gulp.

    Me: There we go.

    Jamie: That’s exactly what he said, He said, “Mom, drink your coffee!”

    Erik: But the thing about God Source’s energy and how it is everything, I’m just trying to describe a little bit more by saying if God Source energy is working with Earth within all the belief systems, all the religions, all the life, all the things like the inanimate stuff, the animals, the way it interacts with us is through emotional value.

    I guess that’s all I’m going to get.

    Me: Okay.

    Erik (annunciating each word): Authentic emotional quality.

    Me: Instead of what? What other options would there be besides that?

    Erik: You’d have to go to a different planet for that, Mom.

    Me: I’ll put that on my itinerary.

    Jamie (laughing): Yeah on your to-do list.

    Me: “Check!” All right. Tell me about your first meeting with God, Erik.

    Jamie: He’s doing that soundtrack again.

    She moves her hands like a rapper deejay.

    Erik: My first meeting with God was—

    (Long pause. Jamie is clearly discussing something with Erik to herself.)

    Jamie: Sorry. I’m listening to music right now in my head, apparently. He’s trying to take me off track. It’s that 70s song—please don’t make me sing it.

    Me: Please don’t.

    Jamie: Lady Love? Ma, my lady.

    Me: Oh, right.

    Jamie: My Endless Love!

    Me: Yeah, okay. That one.

    Jamie mouths the words.

    Me: I’m not going to sing it. We both aren’t. It’s too early in the morning [unintelligible as we talk over each other.]

    Erik: That’s what it felt like, and it was more of a feeling than anything. When you die, it’s not like you go straight to this center energy, this God Source. You don’t have to. There’s no reporting system here. You, you know, you report to yourself. You get to look at your experience. You get to look at what you’ve done with what you had available.

    (I hear the classic Siri tone beep off to Jamie’s right.)

    Erik: You get to decide those things. God doesn’t do that.

    Jamie slowly turns her head to the right, eyes widened.

    Siri: Checking. Okay. I found something on the web for “experiences you didn’t look at what you’ve done.”

    Me: Siri is another form of God!

    (Silence as Jamie and I ponder this.)

    Jamie gets up and moves away from the sight of the camera.

    Jamie: It’s just sitting on the chair.

    Me: Oh, Erik. Stop! He must have pushed the button. He wants Siri to join us.

    Jamie comes back, looking at her phone.

    (Pause as she reads it)

    Jamie: Siri is searching for experiences you didn’t look at what you’ve done.

    Me: Wow! Erik, are you bossing Siri around?

    Jamie (putting her iPhone’s screen in front of the camera): Quotes about regrets.

    Me: Oh my god! Erik, did you do that?

    Jamie: He’s saying, “yes.”

    Me: Yeah, because you can’t access Siri without pushing the home button for a long time.

    Jamie puts her phone down, then flings her hand up in a “I don’t know what the hell just happened” move.

    Me: So, Erik, I guess you’re not going to provide all the answers. You’re just going to dump it all on Siri, huh?

    Jamie (chuckling): He’s laughing.

    Erik: Maybe you should ask Siri these questions.

    Me: I guess so! No, seriously. Back to your meeting with God.

    Erik: You come across God because you want to. You go to Prime Source energy because you desire it, you want it, not because you have to report or that you’re going to be judged, looking at the good child, bad child of what your life was about. About the time that I decided to speak with God was when we were deciding to do something much bigger than what we were doing, you and I, Mom, and what that would look like. So, for me, it was more helpful in an overall way for all the other lives that I have chosen to experience, and how could I do that with—

    Jamie: He’s making lights go off in the room.

    Jamie looks around the room.

    Me: Rein him in, Jamie.

    Jamie: What is this? It’s like the world of phenomena.

    Me: That’s Erik.

    Jamie: I’m having a hard time focusing anyway!

    Jamie takes a sip of coffee.

    Me: Pull back your energy [Erik.]

    Jamie: Yeah. Pull it in. Pull it in.

    Erik: So I was using God much like a resource to make sure that what you and I wanted to do, creating, manifesting—again, I’m speaking in linear terms because that’s the way we understand things. Through that, I got to experience, with God, instantaneously, All That Is. You know how—

    Jamie: Eminem? (Laughing) He says you have to lose yourself in the moment.

    We both laugh.

    Me: Marshall Mathers! That’s his real name.

    Erik: Well, in the moment of communicating with God or connecting to God Source energy, you lose yourself in the moment. You don’t surrender yourself. You don’t burn up your consciousness and delete everything. It’s not that. You surrender the concept of designing your experiences to fit your understanding, to feed you. All of a sudden, you’re experiencing the whole all at once.

    Me: Okay. What did that feel like?

    (Long pause, then Jamie looks extremely embarrassed.)

    Jamie: God Erik!

    She takes a moment to compose herself.

    Me: Come on, Jamie. I know it’s early, but…

    Jamie: Snap to it, right? He is confusing me left and right.

    Erik: What does it feel like? For a human it would feel like the peak of a climax, an orgasm—

    Me: I figured he was going to say that.

    Erik: –that continues. It stays there. The whole body feels cracked open. The whole part of your energetic soul, your soul, your spirit feels cracked open, feels the presence of everything, and nothing is overwhelming. Nothing is scary or shocking. It’s just the a-ha moment that lasts forever. And it’s your free will choice to step back from it or step into it. You’ll notice that most of the spirits that you come across that are working to help humans, to help the Earth, to help these dimensional planes, you know, to work better and to be better, find that when they step away from God Source energy, they can understand the humanness of the experience.

    Jamie: He’s showing me magnets. You know, one on one side and one on the other. The little soul is in between. One magnet is the Earth and one is God Source energy, and the little piece of metal (the soul) goes to one, then the other, then to the other.

    Erik: This is the dance that a soul in the human body will do until it lets go of the human body. It’s the human body—the physical—keeping it a very dense energy that gives the false illusion of being separated from God Source energy, to not be God. So I like that visual of the magnets because we have these a-ha moment when we’re kind of closer to the God side and then we have these moments when we feel very dense and very human. We kind of teeter back and forth. When you get out to the body—take off the metal piece—the magnets will actually come together. You don’t have to play middleman. That’s what it’s like to be a spirit—God Source energy everywhere. You’re together and you decide your level of focus. You don’t feel like you’re pulled or not in control.

    Me: So you decide if you want to feel more separate or if you want to feel more a part of the whole?

    Erik: Yeah. Those are pretty lame words, but it describes it really, really well.

    Gee thanks.

    Jamie: The lights.

    Me: Lights are going off and on in the room?

    Jamie: I know it’s not me. If it starts to be me, someone needs to let me know.

    Me (reading through my notes): Okay, let me see. So you said it didn’t have a beginning. I think we asked everything.

    Erik: It exists. It exists.

    Me: Anything else you have to say on this? I mean, God’s a pretty big subject so if you have anything else to say, please do so.

    Erik: Even if you choose not to believe in God, you actually believe in God.

    Me: How so?

    Erik: Ba boom.

    Jamie mimics his gestures in a way I can’t possibly describe.

    Erik: Because this Prime Source energy is omnipresent, omni-being and omni-everything. It’s there so there’s no such thing as true absence.

    Me: So when the lights are on in the room, you can see all the furniture, but when the lights are off, you can’t see the furniture but it’s still there. Is that what you’re saying?

    Erik: Yeah, I like that. Yeah.

    Me: Anything else before we close?

    Erik: Nah. Let’s just tell people—

    Jamie (laughing): Please don’t do this. This is Erik’s humor. Erik is saying you have to do this.

    Erik: I just think we’ve confused everybody so much you should go have a joint, go get high, drink some wine and chill out with these thoughts and see how they resonate with you.

    Me: Disclaimer time!

    Jamie laughs.

    Me: Contact your physician or your mental health professional.

    Jamie: Yes, and I would say, meditate.

    Jamie keeps laughing all the way up to our goodbyes.


  • June30th2015


    Today, I’m taking care of my grand daughter, Arleen. I wasn’t expecting to, but Michelle’s babysitting plans fell through. That means I won’t be able to do as much of my usual work because I need that important time for playing Magical Forest, Doggie Fashion Show and other adventures and extravaganzas. Today is the beginning of the God series. I know this is also available as a YouTube, but if I don’t use YouTube transcriptions for posts, I run out of material for the blog! Some people prefer reading anyway. 

    Me: Hi Jamie.

    Jamie: Hello.

    Me: Have you had your coffee?

    Jamie laughs and shows me the cup.

    Me: We might have to sip it from time to time because we’re both exhausted. Erik, I want to say hi to you, too.

    Erik: Hi Mom. I love you.

    Me: I love you too. I’m going to talk about a really big topic with your and that’s GOD! Do you want to talk about God?

    Erik makes an ominous “Dun, dun, DUN!” sound. It makes me laugh.

    Me: Well everybody’s interested in this whether they’re religious or not, so let’s start out with, what is it? What is it?


    Jamie: He’s actually going to sit down for this one.

    Me: Not for long, I’m sure.

    Jamie: Probably not.

    Erik: If you want to ask the question about God, we basically should be asking, “What comes first, the chicken or the egg?”

    Me: Well, what does?

    Jamie smiles and mimics Erik shrugging his shoulders.

    Erik: Let’s talk about it.

    Me: Let’s do.

    Isn’t that what we’re here for?

    Erik: You’re talking about God, and can I make the assumption, dear Mother that you are defining God as like a dude who looks like a person? How should we approach this?

    Me: Well I don’t think It’s a dude that looks like a person. You’re supposed to tell me these things. You’re not interviewing me. It’s the other way around.

    Erik: I just want to be clear that when we’re asking the question that everyone understands what it is.

    Me: Okay.

    Erik: You’re just using the term in general maybe as the basis for people who are in a religion that they direct their faith and worship to. “God.”

    Erik nods his head and widens his eyes as if to say, “How do you like that, huh?”

    Jamie: I guess he’s waiting for you to respond. I don’t know. It really didn’t seem like a question.

    Erik: Okay. God is the universal source of energy. It is where we all come from: all the races, all the personalities, all the love, all the hate, all of everything. It’s not some dude. In fact when you meet this original source of energy we’re all derivatives of—

    Jamie stumbles on the word.

    Jamie: Good word, Erik.

    Me: Yeah, that’s a pretty good word [for a little goof.]

    Erik: That energy will look like anything you want it to. It can look like Mother Earth. It can look like the dude on the throne. It can look like a big Buddha. It can look like whatever you need. The term, “God” is extremely loose. When you’re saying it and vibrationally receiving it, it’s all about the orignainl source of energy. The way that you can look at it is much like—

    Jamie (laughing): I don’t know what you’re saying, Erik! I’m so sorry.

    Erik: The way that you can look at it is a little like a neuron. It has kind of like a core, center of information, of stored energy and these light things, these little transmitters come off of it. And all of these transmitters, those are our lifelines. What we do with those [transmitters] is under our own control, our own free will, but it all feeds back and relates to this one prime source of energy.

    Bella is trying to get up in my lap. The noise is so annoying that I pick her up.

    Me: She’s making me lose my focus. Sorry for the interruption, God.

    Erik: She’s so cute! No, and when we start talking about energy like this, God like this, prime source energy that is All There Is, then we start to wonder who gave birth to that or where did that come from? That’s the real question here, right?

    Me: One of them.


    Erik: And that’s going to stay a mystery.

    Jamie (laughing): That’s not fair.

    Me: Oh no! So you say it’s the original energy. How does that work if there’s no time?

    You can tell Jamie is talking to Erik in her head.

    Jamie: You’re asking the same thing that I’m going over in my head with him. I’ve never seen him—cuz he’s saying he’s using linear language to help us understand the conversation better.

    Erik: When we talk about having a beginning and an ending or whether the chicken came first or the egg, then for us, we see it as a beginning.


    Erik (to Jamie): No, no. That’s not what I’m trying to do.

    Jamie: He’s trying to calm me down.

    Erik: I’m trying to stoke the fire where you are.

    Jamie listens for a long time leaning on her elbow with her chin in her hand.

    Jamie: Ask him another question. I’m grilling him, but I think I’m just taking him in circles.

    Me: Okay. Well, he does that, too, sometimes. Uh, is it a collective consciousness? Is that what God is?

    Erik: That’s part of it. That’s not all of it.

    Me: Okay. Well, you’ve said before that we are part and whole of God. Can you talk about that?

    Erik: Yeah, we can look at it in the reverse. Anything that is being taken from this prime source of energy is God and, as we talked about energy before, if we’re dividing energy, even the piece that is coming away from it is a complete whole. It’s not seen as a portion of it. I know that hurts people’s heads because it’s important as a human to be able to measure something to understand it. Where’s it coming from? How does it look? What size is it? That lets us put it into a place in our head and say that we understand it.

    Me: Mm hm.

    Erik: That kind of logical thinking when we’re discussing God and energy and chicken before the egg doesn’t work. It doesn’t apply. We have to see it as, even if we’re considering a source and we’re a part of it, we come away from it, that this (he shows one hand) is an equal whole as this (he shows his other hand.) We are God, God is us. We are prime energy; prime energy is us. We are all made up of the same thing. We can access the same thing. It’s our free will, when we dive into a body, which allows us to choose definitions, perceptions, likes and dislikes. This designs how we define God or where God is or how God exists.


    Jamie (leaning back in her chair and laughing): He thinks this is really funny. He kind of leans back and, I don’t know what that was. A little jerk of the head.

    Wish you guys could see that.

    Erik: You know all of this is really, really damn creative, how people view God. It’s all damn creative.

    Jamie (laughing): He’s using his professor voice.

    Me: Where’s your pipe and your hat and you’re smoking jacket?

    Erik snaps his fingers to make these appear.

    Jamie: Oh, play the role, Erik.

    Erik (in a very stuffy, professorial voice): Carry on.

    I chuckle.

    Jamie: With his pipe.

    She pantomimes holding a pipe in her hand.

    Me: I’ve heard people say that God is like information and information manipulates energy to create things, etcetera. Is that true?

    Erik: C’mon!

    Me: And what is information, anyway? Is it a form of energy? Go ahead. I blasted you with a couple of questions.

    Erik: I like the question that you’re asking. It’s really good.

    I aim to please.

    Erik: What’s consciousness?

    Me: Energy that’s aware, maybe? I’m not sure.

    Erik: Isn’t that the same damn thing that you’re asking? Information and energy and (touching his fingers in front of him) and woo, they get together and that’s consciousness. We already said that God is a mix of that consciousness, but this God Source is a collection of pure energy, energy that hasn’t manipulated to be into bodies, that hasn’t been designed to have a character or a role or a purpose, a plan. It’s a pure energy.

    Me: Well does it have a personality or is it just this big, giant, infinite sea of energy, or does it have—

    Erik: It has love, Mom. Love.

    Me: Love. Okay. I hear that it is Love, right? Is God love?

    Erik: Yes. Yes, yes.

    Me: I also heard you say, I think, that God is All There Is. I mean, there’s nothing else but God?

    Erik: Everywhere. Everywhere. People think that this “God,” this energy that we possess is solely ours on Earth.


    Jamie (chuckling): He just went off on a tangent.

    Me: Of course.

    Jamie: A bunch of bad words.

    She makes the sound of a machine gun.

    Me: You can’t say bad words in this particular interview, Erik! It’s sacrilegious, but go ahead.

    Jamie laughs and I shake my head.

    Erik: That’s silly to think that [God] just belongs to us. It’s in so many places and in so many different forms. I think it’s going to be very entertaining, Mom, when we finally get over racism on Earth. We’re going to have to deal with intergalactic racism.

    He stresses this as if it holds particular importance.

    We laugh.

    Erik: We’re going to have to acknowledge other beings, who they are and how they look and what their personality traits are and what their proposes are.

    Me: Well, now you’re getting off on a tangent. Are you?

    Erik: No! No, because we’re talking about God Source energy.

    Me: We’re talking about whether it’s All There Is. If God is in a glass, filling it up and that glass is on the table, is that God, or is God the whole room, the whole universe not just what’s contained in the glass?

    Erik: God is everything.

    Am I dense? Oh yeah. I am.

    Me: So there’s nothing else but God.

    Erik: Right, and you can take the word, “God” and say, “Prime Source Energy.”

    Me: Okay, and God is—

    Erik: I think that helps the masses understand how everything connects.

    Nothing like some funny God cartoons!

  • May12th2013


    Before we begin this post, I’d like to reiterate a concern of mine. Many blog members seem to have elevated Erik to the status of a quasi-deity and this idol worship makes Erik and me very uncomfortable. First, it creates this disconnect, making him seem less approachable and more detached from us as you’d expect with someone perched high up on a pedestal. Second, it makes the Channeling Erik family seem more like a cult rather than a safe place to share, gain insight and explore belief systems. Erik is really just a kid without a body. Any spirit can tap into the infinite pool of information available on the Other Side. The only difference with him is that he has a voice in Jamie, and he has a venue through which to express it. That said, let’s all try to see Erik as one of us. He really wants it that way, and so do I.

    Look at him! Can you really see him as an idol to worship?

    Erik Closeup

    From this day forward, I plan to include the following disclaimer before every post so that new readers will understand my motives are pure.:


    Please be aware that Erik and I do not want him to be elevated to an idol status. Neither Erik nor I want him to be the object of worship. He’s just a kid without a body who, like any spirit, is able to tap into the vast pool of information available in the dimension where he resides. The only difference between Erik and most other spirits is that he has a voice through Jamie and a venue through which to share with a large group of people what he knows and discovers.

    Also, I would like to make it clear that I cannot accept any ad revenue or donations, and would prefer to take care of all expenses involving the blog and the channeling sessions out of my own pocket. The majority of the profits I might receive through books, etc. will be used to create and subsidize a nonprofit organization to help suicide survivors and those who contemplate suicide. I see it as the money I would have spent on his college education. To have it any other way would be to exploit his death, and, as a mother, I could never do that.


    Me: What does God look like and how was He or She created? I think we’ve asked this before, but a blog member wants to know or maybe just needs clarification.

    Erik: What does God look like? God is energy and can present itself to you anyway that YOU feel that you want to identify with God. If you’re thinking omnipresent and full of energy, that’s what you’re going to get. If you’re thinking white guy with a beard, that’s what you’re going to get. If you identify with God as a woman, that’s what you’re getting.

    Me: Well, what does God look like when He or She or It looks into the mirror?

    Jamie and Erik laugh.

    Me: No seriously! What does God see in the mirror?

    Erik: Mom! The mirror? The mirror is US.

    Me: Oh, whoa!

    Erik: You know, God divided God’s energy to know God’s self by going through us. We’re the many, many mirrors.

    Me: So God isn’t inherently a white ball of light or anything, right? Unless I want to identify with him that way.

    Erik: Right. God is us and we are God, part and whole.

    Me: So, how was God created then? I’m guessing that since linear time is an illusion, that God always “was.” But we want you, the expert, to intervene here.

    Erik (laughing) Did you just call me an expert?

    Jamie (giggling): He thinks that’s funny. He’s repeating what you were saying about God always being there, but humans can’t understand that there is no beginning or end. You know, we’re not getting born, then getting older, then dying and disappearing, but that’s what most people tend to think. That’s their frame of mind.

    Erik: God Source or God Energy has always existed. It was not created with the Big Bang. It didn’t grow with evolution. We’re the ones—humans—who were created by the Big Bang and evolution. We can’t compare ourselves to God Energy, and that’s what humans will automatically try to do.

    Me: Okay.

    A closing thought: Please send all of your prayers, love and Reiki to long time blog member, Ceridwen, who lost her beloved father, Ralph, very suddenly yesterday. They were very close, so she’s in a lot of pain. We’re family, so we help each other in the times when we feel alone.

    Happy Mothers’ Day to all of your wonderful moms out there.

  • March4th2013


    After completing the interview with Mother Teresa, I was left feeling very conflicted about her. My conclusion was that here is a woman who everyone idolized to sacrosanct levels, yet she was very much human. What surprised me is that she seemed interject her ego, at times.

    I know we’ve already done many of these interviews over the last year or so, but I’d like to stop and thank Erik for bringing them in. I don’t know if all of you realize this, but very few mediums are able to channel celebrities. They just can’t pull them in, for some reason. Even Jamie was never able to call one in until she met Erik and asked his assistance. I find that interesting and thought I’d the fact that these interviews wouldn’t happen without him.

    Me: Do we have Mother Teresa here yet?

    Jamie: No, he hasn’t brought her in yet.

    Me: Hi, Erik.

    Erik: Hi, Mom.

    Me: Erik, can you please bring Mother Teresa in for us?

    Erik: Yeah. Yeah I can do that, but I wanted to say hi first.

    Me: I love you.

    Erik: I love you, too. Mother Teresa is a little fireball.

    Me: I bet so. To have accomplished all she did, I’m sure she is a little spitfire.

    Jamie: Okay. He’s going to go get her. He paused. I told him to go get her before the call.

    Me: Maybe she’s a little shy, but somehow I doubt that.

    Jamie (chuckling): I doubt that, too.

    Me: Maybe she’s just really busy ministering to the sick, orphaned and dying!

    Jamie: We need to have that call waiting music while we’re waiting for them to come in.

    Me: That’s right. Or cricket sounds.

    Jamie (giggling): Oh, she’s so much shorter than I thought!

    Me: Oh, really? Shorter than you, Jamie?

    Jamie: Yeah! I’m 5’41/2”. She’s probably around the five-foot mark.

    Me: Oh my goodness! Hello, Mother Teresa!

    Mother Teresa: Thank you for having me. This is very interesting. I didn’t know if I was going to have the time to join you today.

    Me: Well, thank you for carving out that time. I really appreciate it, and I think it’ll do a lot of good for a lot of people.

    Jamie: Erik is hounding her about the time thing. He goes, “You know that’s not true! You could have shown up wherever you want. What was your hesitation?”

    Jamie covers her mouth in shock.

    Me: Ah oh! Beating of Mother Teresa! Naughty Erik!

    Mother Teresa: I believe in a lot of spirit communication, because this is how I communicated with Jesus when I was alive. Though I appreciate the work that you do, I feel lit should have more direction, religiously.

    Me: Are you talking about from a Christian standpoint?

    Mother Teresa: Yes. I’m not judging your work, because each man and woman will do as they see fit, but if it were up to my design, it would be structured under that belief system.

    Me: But then what would Moses and Allah and the other religious, uh, those who follow other religious faiths, what would they think?


    Me: I mean, who would they follow?

    Mother Teresa: They would think whatever they want. We’re not here to change that, are we?

    Me: Well, what would Jesus think? (chuckling) What would Jesus do?

    Jamie (laughing): What would Jesus do!

    Jamie (shifting into an Indian style position): I’m just going to get comfortable, because you know this is going to be a long one!

    Me: I know!

    Jamie (whispering): What would Jesus do?

    Mother Teresa: Jesus would embrace anyone who came to him.

    Me: Including non-Christians.

    Mother Teresa: Yes.

    Me: So, if we narrowed it down to one faith—

    Mother Teresa: Yes, I didn’t call on Jesus’s protection when I opened this kind of communication.

    Jamie: I don’t use Jesus, personally, Jamie, as part of my intent or prayer before I do sessions. I use the term, “Father, Mother, God” so it’s a bit broader, but…

    Erik: What is your faith based in?

    Mother Teresa (to Erik): My heart belongs to Jesus.

    Me: That was one of my questions, actually. When you crossed over, what sort of conversations or thoughts did you have when you first met Jesus?

    Mother Teresa: I was accepted.

    Jamie: She has an older woman’s voice, but there’s also an accent to it. She talks in shorter sentences. She’s not very elaborate, and she doesn’t add a lot of extra words in. It’s just very simple and direct.

    Mother Teresa: What I wanted throughout my life was to be in his presence and accepted by him. Though I knew this in my heart when I was living, it is always a different feeling when you can look into the eyes of the one you believe in.

    Me: Okay. Now, what influenced you to begin ministering to the poor, the sick, the orphaned and the dying, and what made you join a convent?

    Mother Teresa: I knew from day one that I belonged in service to other people. My father passed away young. I was little. It brought up many questions to me about death. For me, it showed me that life was much shorter than what I dreamed of when I was a child.

    Jamie: So, she says this happened as a little girl. She’s showing me like 8, 9, 10 kind of a thing.

    Mother Teresa: I knew I was to go into the service after that.

    Jamie: Makes it sound like the military, but she means The Church.

    Mother Teresa: I couldn’t do that until I was old enough. My mother would not let me leave, live at the church, but I made many pilgrimages to worship and to seek solitude at the church. Through those experiences, I knew that was where I wanted to stay. I no longer felt I needed to stay attached or defined by my family. I wanted to be attached to Jesus and defined by the spiritual family.

    I’m wondering why she couldn’t have done both.

    Me: On September the 6th, 1946, you were traveling on a train from Darjeeling to Calcutta for some annual retreat, and you experienced what was later called, “The call within the call.” What happened, if anything?

    Jamie: You made her smile when you talked about his.

    Me: Oh, okay. I aim to please.

    Jamie: It just makes you realize that through all of this that she’s, you know, not a really smiley, bubbly person. She’s very calm and simple. So, when you mentioned this whatever it was, she smiled broadly.


    Jamie: Erik is repeating the question to her.  I just wanted you to know why there’s silence.

    Erik: Describe it in a way we could maybe understand it or compare it to an experience.

    Jamie: She’s explaining it to Erik, not to me that it was as if it was an out of body experience where she was able to communicate directly to God and to Jesus.

    Mother Teresa to Erik): It was clear to me the path that my life would take. From that moment on, I had no more doubt, no more question of what my life would be like. And the types of—

    Jamie (to Erik): Attacks? Is that what she’s saying?

    Mother Teresa: The types of attacks that would be pushed on the work I was meant to do on Earth.

    Jamie: She’s telling Erik—I think she’s much more comfortable talking to Erik than with me!

    Me (chuckling): Oh no!

    Mother Teresa (to Erik): I was not an angel. I did not come to Earth as a holy being, as an angel. I came to Earth as a little girl, as one who wanted to experience life, and it was in my younger years that I was able to clearly see, without filters, my own personal desires. There were many moments between ages 8 and 18 that influenced me to follow that unfiltered dream when I was young. Everything I did in this life was driven by me and my belief. I had a mission.

    Erik (laughing): Literally, you had a mission!

    Mother Teresa: Yes.

    Final reminder:

    Don’t forget tomorrow’s radio show where Erik and Jamie will be the guests on The Sean and Jen Show at 4 PM MST/5 PM CST. If you’d like to submit a general question, email it to me at Indicate how you’d like your name to be announced: initials, full name, anonymous, etc. Example of questions might be: What is the hardest thing to get used to when you lose your body? Do they have streets in the afterlife? What do spirits usually miss the most about not having a body? You get the idea.

  • January9th2013


    For those of you who weren’t able to listen to the radio show yesterday, it was amazing. Erik was in fine form, the callers asked wonderful questions and Jamie, as always, was her usual gifted self, a wide open, filter free channel. No worries, though, because when the hosts have the mp3 file available, I’ll post it on the blog for you guys.

    Today, I included a question many of you had for Moses after his interview a few months ago. Sorry it took so long, but the queue of transcriptions is not a short one. After that, Erik will present the main event.

    Me: Okay, now one of the things you said when we interviewed Moses, Erik—he said that he was alive when all three religions were together at once, but that doesn’t make any sense, because all three religions weren’t all together at once. So, that baffled some of the blog members.

    Jamie: Do we have to call Moses in? What was the question? What three religions?

    Me: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Maybe the roots were together at once? I don’t know. So what did he mean, Erik?

    Jamie: Oh!

    Me: And he saw them together and then they branched off their separate ways and didn’t keep the important tenets that they all shared at first.

    Erik: You’re right. You had it right. It’s, um, he was there when it was just the one main belief.

    Me: But Christianity? Was he here when Christianity, uh, because Jesus Christ wasn’t around then, but, so how did that work out?


    Me: Or was he alive, I don’t know, because maybe Moses was reincarnated. You tell me cuz I’m obviously lost here.

    Erik: In conversations with God.

    Me Oh, that makes sense. Moses was alive in conversations with God. With all of these.

    Erik: Yes. He was conversing with God while these were all splitting off.

    Me: Oh, okay.

    Erik: It doesn’t mean he was on Earth, physically.


    Me: When are individual spirit created, or are they every born, in a sense? Have they always just existed? We’ve already covered this, but it’s always nice to approach the topic again for the new members who don’t go through the archives like they should.

    (Hint, hint.)

    Me: Also, how far back in time can you remember? Oh, that’s interesting! So, to recap: The individual spirit: Are they every born, or have they always existed, and how far back into time can that spirit remember?

    Erik: Individual spirits are not born. They are just a—

    Jamie (to Erik): Do it. Just explain it.


    Jamie (to Erik, laughing): No, I don’t think there’s a word for that either! He said, “I want a word that means piece, like a piece of, but you’re still a part of it.” He was telling me how blanking, blanky, blank the English language is.

    Jamie and I can’t help but burst out laughing.

    Jamie: I said, ‘Just explain it out,’ and he said, “Okay.”

    Erik: Human spirit is never born. It’s just a piece of the whole.

    Me: Right.

    Erik (sounding a little frustrated at his loss for words): We always have to go back to the hologram thing, because I think that’s the best way to describe it. I don’t know anything else that does this where you can shatter it and pick up all the pieces and look at the individual piece and there’s still an image of the whole. So, Prime Source, God Source, Life Force, whatever the fuck you wanna call it, we are little particles of that whole. Though we identify ourselves in the human form as separate, we’re not. We’re a part of the whole. We’re connected. It’s just in subtle energy layers that we don’t see. A lot of us can feel them, but most of us cannot see them. So, we aren’t really born, because the whole—Prime Source or whatever—has always existed. As far back as you can remember? Um, that’s up to you.

    Me: Okay.

    Erik: If –

    Jamie (laughing): You know, a paddleball?

    Me: Oh yeah.

    Jamie: It has that elastic string and a rubber ball at the end ,and you try to hit it.

    Erik: You know a kid version—it has a short elastic string and it’s much easier to do.

    Me: Uh huh.

    Erik: But you get the adult one or the cheap one where the elastic is like already four feet long, and you can’t even like swing the ball because the elastic is so long.

    Me: Oh god. I can’t even use the kid one.

    Erik: Okay, so the ball is the human spirit, and the paddle is Life Force, God Source.

    Me: Okay.

    Jamie giggles at whatever Erik is now saying.

    Erik: And the string, the elastic, is the subtle energy that keeps us all whole and connected. Sometimes when you pull away from God Source, your elastic’s really short, and you still have this intense connection and these memories. And those memories can go far back—

    Jamie (giggling): Um, he’s cussing.

    Me: Ah oh.

    Jamie (mimicking Erik): Fucking, fucking, fucking. The word he wants to use is “beginning” and he refuses to say it, because it’s not accurate.

    Jamie and I both laugh at his conundrum. Poor Erik.

    Erik: But in our linear world, that’s what we would call it. Beginning.

    Me: Sure.

    Jamie: He’s yelling at me. “That’s not the fucking right word!” and I tell him, ‘I know, but you can’t come up with another word, can you?’

    Me: Oh, he’s stumped!

    Jamie: Yes. It’s ticking him off! Wow. Sore spot!

    Erik: Yes! Language is a sore spot for me. It’s stupid.

    Me: Aw.

    Erik: I wish I could—you know, I just close my eyes, and if you’d feel it, you’d get it.

    Me: I can feel it, but I can’t type that. But I can feel what you’re talking about, Erik.

    Erik: Not linear, but what you’d call back to the beginning.

    Me: Right.

    Erik: Because you are part of God Source, you have all of the experiences and memories of what God has.

    Me: It’s almost a place instead of a timeline, right?

    Erik: Yeah. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! And some of us, we have like that really long elastic cord, and we just wanted to get as far away as possible.

    Me: Mm hm.

    Erik: Just cuz it was what we wanted to do.

    Me: Yeah.

    Erik: And nobody is going to judge us for it. We just did it, and sometimes it’s just hard to get the ball back to the paddle.

    Jamie bursts out laughing.

    Me: God, Erik. We’re all bouncy balls to you, lately!

    Jamie and I both laugh.

    Me: Okay, so can you remember the time of the split from Source?

    Erik: Hell yeah!

    Me: Wow! What does it feel like?

    Erik: I can only speak for myself on this one.

    Me: Okay.

    Jamie (laughing): He’s going to get all Zen on you!

    Me: What?

    Erik: I’m going to get all Zen on you.

    Me (chuckling): Okay. Got it.

    Jamie: I’m just laughing, because the way he said it was so unnatural. It’s funny. He’s got his elbows on his knees, and he leans forward.

    Erik: It’s like when the raindrop leaves the cloud. That’s how it feels.

    Me: Ooo! Wait, how does that feel? I’m not a raindrop, and I’m not a cloud.

    Erik: Maybe you should be, Mom.

    Mom (laughing, in jest): Oh, god, you little twerp. If so, I just might rain on your parade. So explain.

    Erik: Well, it really doesn’t have feeling. It’s not excitement or scary or anything. It’s not like giving birth or painful or—

    Me: Is it like a breath?

    Erik: Yeah, like when you breathe out. You know, the air that leaves your body as easy as it came in.

    Me: Okay.

    Erik: I hate to disappoint you, but there are no fireworks.

    Me: Well, I wouldn’t call it disappointing. You might hurt Source’s feelings, you know.

    Erik (laughing): No I’m not! Source does not judge!

    Me: I’m teasing, silly.


    Are any of you guys Skype savvy? Jamie and I just video Skyped an interview with the Sun God, Ra, and, like the last couple of Skype calls, the video blurs with movement, the audio is out of sync and cuts in and out, but was much worse than previous calls. Jamie says there was no problem with my video and audio, and when I Skype others, they’re very clear. I use Call Recorder to record and then convert the .mov file to YouTube, but this is almost unusable. I know have it as a url created from Mediafire. Are there changes we can make to Jamie’s computer? Can we salvage the file we have? Help!

    Also, the Channeling Erik Weekend of F*^#ing enlightenment registration and details are up on Jamie’s page now. The event will take place in Atlanta, GA March 22 through March 24. I can’t wait to attend and hope to see you all there!




  • August21st2012


    I’m so excited to hear from Moses this week! Much of the information I’ve gotten is mostly about Jesus and I’ve been left wondering just how the Old Testament fit in, especially the “laws” of Moses. So, no surprise to me that Elisa would post this interview. Nothing is ever a coincidence, aye? Last week we talked more in-depth about the teachings of Jesus and how they line right up with what Buddha was taught 500 years before. We discussed some of the symbolic meanings behind biblical stories and characters, the history of how the Bible came to be, and some of the mysticism behind the Bible and other religions.  This week, we’re going to look at what it all means now.

    I feel like the biggest issue with interpretations of Biblical scripture is that most people see it as based on the promise of reward… be a good person, go to Heaven, get lots of treasures in Heaven. Be a good person so God will bless you. The fatal mistake is when people assume that God’s idea of blessings are the same as that of humans. What if God’s idea of a blessing is not gold and treasure, but is simply health, peace and happiness?

    We need to find a way to tie being a good person for the sake of being good. Not because we’re afraid of being punished if we’re not, and not based on the promise of material rewards if we are. Having MORE STUFF is not what makes us happy. Even statistical studies show us that, generally speaking, the amount of “happiness” received from material gain – money – hits a law of diminishing returns at $75,000 household income – the amount to meet a person’s needs and allow them to live somewhat comfortably. Any amount of money made over that does not really contribute to a person’s happiness.

    Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Matthew 19:23-24”  Most Christians will say this means you cannot buy your way into Heaven. Indeed, if the biblical idea of Heaven were a place, you could not buy your way into it.  But you can’t buy your way into a state of being either….well, you know, unless we’re talking about drugs.

    When the rich man asked Jesus if he could become a disciple, he turned him away and said, “Go sell all of your possessions first, then come back to me.”

    Why do you think Jesus preached to people to give away their possessions? When we kick materialistic thinking out of our lives – we get back to nature, and back to God, and begin to see that love is all we need – or as the Beatles would say, all you need is love. In fact, love is all there is. Because god is everything, and god is love.

    When you are Christ-like, you are so at peace, you will realize that you do not NEED wealth. Buddhism teaches the same thing.

    Material, worldly possessions do just that – they possess us. We begin to live our lives for those possessions, the accumulation of those possessions, and not for love. And let’s just clarify – people, relationships, and addictions can all be forms of possession as well. Christians might be right – maybe America has gone downhill, but it’s not because of the gays. It’s probably because we’re one of the most materialistic nations in the world.

    “Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won’t. We’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” – FIght Club

    Karma can be perceived as the idea that you get back the energy that you put out. Do your Dharma – your duty – give love to your fellow creatures and beings, and you get it back. The Wiccan idea that any spell you cast comes back three fold. The whole, “renounce your worldly possessions” bit Jesus gave. What are any of these but other ways of explaining the Law of Attraction? The universe is your mirror, you get what you give… all of these little anecdotes we’ve heard our whole lives. But it’s not just an action, it’s also a state of mind.. because consciousness is all that is – God is consciousness. We create our own reality through our consciousness, so does God, so does Source, so does Brahman. All that they are (us and the universe) is a product of consciousness. All that we are is a product of our state of mind.

    You must give – be giving – in order to have. Be love and give love to receive love. Have a healthy attitude toward wealth to be wealthy. Be happy with what you have, and give it to others to receive more of it. The Universe reads your mind. If all you think is “I want love” the universe will give you the want of love! But, if you think, I have love, I am loved, I am love… and give it to others… then you shall have love and be loved. Should you expect it to land in your lap? Sometimes, but you’ve also got to do the Universe a solid and go look for it! Have realistic expectations about what you are going to receive – you’ll get exactly what you want, but only as much of it as you NEED –  but all that you need is just enough.

    Ever hear those stories about how people just happen to, by mysterious coincidence, receive the exact sum of money they need in order for something to happen? Some will attribute that to God. And at a higher level, it is God. But it’s not a matter of God the genie granting your every wish and prayer. It’s providing for your needs – and ONLY your needs. The accumulation of stuff, of relationships, of whatever – pick your poison – is not what we need. It’s what we want. It’s what the ego wants. Therefore, we’re in a constant state of want… more more more. When we realize that we have already that which we need… we realize that we don’t need any more. We become at peace… in a state of ‘Heaven.’ And in the act of giving away that which we don’t need, the Universe is then providing for someone else who “needs”…

    That’s how it works in nature.That’s how it’s balanced. No creature takes more than it needs to survive and the earth provides- except us. Humans take more than they need all the time, even to the detriment of other humans. Scarcity is an illusion. There’s plenty to go around, there’s just a percentage of us that are hoarding out of fear. That puts us out of balance with Nature, and subsequently out of balance with God. It’s yin and yang.  And that’s when shit hits the fan – war, a product of fear and the illusion of scarcity. Famine. A product of fear the illusion of scarcity. Corporate greed. A product of fear and the illusion of scarcity. The system is flawed. Our perception is flawed. It must all fall apart… so we can reset. Be resurrected… into the “kingdom of God.” Into Nirvana, Zen, the state of being, the way of living, back in balance.

    Let me repeat: “Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won’t. We’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” – FIght Club

    I want to be clear about what I’m saying here – over time, as new gadgets and gizmos and modern conveniences have been invented, our  idea of what is “needed” has changed. Way way back in the day, all we wanted was a roof over our head, food in our belly and people that loved us. Today, we want all of that, but we want the roof to be a little sturdier, the house to be a little prettier, the food to be a little tastier, the people to be a little cleaner and after a while, we decide that we really like it that way, and we just couldn’t live without it – but we did for thousands of years.  I know I’ve heard people talk who go on mission trips to places like Mexico and see the conditions that people there live in, and they feel sorry because those people aren’t living the same way that they live and they say, “I could never live this way….how can they?”

    Well, they can because often times, they don’t know there is anything else. I want to share with you what I got from a past life regression I did just a week ago. In the regression, the life requested to be shown was the one that has the most influence on this current life situation. I saw myself long ago – ancient times. I’m talking like, when stonehenge was built. I was this pale, thin, blond haired, blue eyed girl of about 19 years old. All I saw from that life was the simplicity that I lived in – I was living in the forest, barefoot, wearing something akin to a burlap sack, living in a simple little stone structure in the woods.

    As far as I could tell, I was alone, except for the animals in the forest, which I loved as my own family. It was very fairytale-like, you know. So much so, I initially thought I was just making it up.  A little bit of Cinderella meets Sleeping Beauty meets Snow White. The colors were very vivid, lots of green with little splashes of pinks and blues from the flowers and the butterflies. I had no job, I worked very little to survive, the forest provided for me what I needed to live – nuts, berries, fruit, and mushrooms (which would explain why I LOVE eating mushrooms to this day!). I was a complete child of nature and however simple my life was – I was completely, totally, and blissfully content with it and enjoyed the moments in it in a way that I can’t describe. I died at a young age, I think – possibly 20 or 21. For some reason, I get the impression that I ate something I shouldn’t have – a poison mushroom, perhaps. All I saw of my death was that person, laying on the forest floor, looking peacefully asleep – just like Snow White. Snow White – how’s that for a story about resurrection? But I won’t get into the symbology of Fairy Tales right now.

    I was thinking about my past life on my morning drive a couple days later. What did it mean? And I thought about the Mayans and the tribal people who still live that way in the rain forest today. They have no knowledge of what modern conveniences are – and so none of those things mean anything to them.  Could I live that way now? Do I really need a gourmet meal every day? At the time, in my past life, I was perfectly happy without it. Some would say that our quality of life is better than theirs – we might live longer thanks to the conveniences of modern medicine, we don’t face the same problems and issues that they do – but what is considered “quality”, like anything, is in the eyes of the beholder.

    People in ancient times may not have had as long of a lifespan as we do today, their hygiene may not have been up to our current standards, their knowledge about many things in the world not what we have today – but they didn’t have all of the SHIT that complicates life either – they were probably able to evolve, spiritually, at a much faster rate than we are today out of the sheer simplicity of life at the time, and thus, didn’t NEED to live to be 80 years old to have the learning experiences that they planned.

    Back then, food didn’t have to be enjoyable, it was just fuel for the body – a means to an end. Little focus was given toward eating it – more so just the energy required to acquiring it, and thus – more time to focus on the enjoyments of a spiritual nature.We’ve placed a lot of meaning on food since then. We use it to celebrate, we use it as a form of expression, art and enjoyment. Same goes for many other things. And there’s nothing wrong with that – we can even use those as avenues of spiritual expression. But it’s part of a cycle – first of discovery, then exploration and learning, and then making decisions about which things discovered are important and which things aren’t, and then releasing those things that no longer serve our purposes, while retaining the knowledge gained from them.

    Especially over the last 200 years or so, we’ve been making many many discoveries, exploring and learning exponentially and we’re now at the point of making decisions about which of those things are still important and which ones are not. Which ones cause more problems than they solve. And as this wave of new energy that comes with Ascension crests and we begin the period of “settling in” we’ll start to see ourselves releasing those things that no longer serve our spiritual purposes.

    That includes material possessions that aren’t truly necessary, the manufacturing of which negatively  impacts the environment- huge houses that use tons of energy, tons of gadgets that we don’t really need, events, foods that aren’t good for us and the global industry that makes all of these things, jobs that we don’t need because we’re no longer buying the things that don’t serve our purposes, cars that guzzle gasoline and release CO2 that we won’t need as many of because we don’t need to work as much, and learning tools like violence that results when people want or can’t get the things that others have, war that results from the struggle over the resources required to create those things that we don’t really need, and last but not least – politics and government that we won’t need in order to fix all of the social and economic problems that will no longer arise from our want of material things and experiences that we no longer value. These are the things the Committee has been telling you about – they just haven’t been as clear as to explain WHY other than saying your perspective about them will change.

    Chapter 9:
So where does Science fit in?  Scientists and skeptics who love them are usually the ones who are always telling those of us who have had spiritual experiences that we’re “delusional.”  They say there is no evidence for a God, therefore one must not exist.  There is no evidence for spirits. They do not exist.  But they are skeptic, by their very nature. They will not acknowledge the possibility – even though science is pretty open-ended at this point. All science can tell you is that there is currently no evidence that supports the existence of a God or spirits or an afterlife, but they cannot prove, conclusively, that one does not exist. As I said earlier – absence of evidence is NOT evidence of absence.

    You see, Science came after religion. Up until science came along, religion was used to explain all that there was in the world. Since its inception, science has been backtracking to come up with its explanation – it’s perception – for the past, which religion has already covered. But Science hasn’t quite caught up to spirituality just yet…. that’s why they still argue that there is no evidence for an afterlife and no evidence for a “God” (although they still, too, compare it to the God that is separate from us). Science’s big book of scientific religion is still incomplete. Our current model of Physics is incomplete.  We still can’t explain everything in the universe. There are things out there that we aren’t even able to observe. They haven’t written the end yet because they haven’t discovered the soul and “God.” But it will catch up, and soon. It’ll be the great revelation….that we were each right all along!

    Quantum theory and some of its facets, like string theory, etc., I think will be the area that allows science to finally catch up to spirituality. For example: they dispute that there is an intelligent being that we cannot see, yet can interact with us. Well, scientifically speaking, we’re all vibrating masses of electrically charged particles. Everything we see, including ourselves, constantly blinks in and out of existence, but it happens so fast that your eyes don’t see it happen – it’s like a movie reel. It looks like one fluid motion even though it’s several different photos moving at a quick speed.

    Interestingly enough – New Age philosophy teaches that the material world is an illusion – and it is! Literally.  It teaches that we create our own reality – which, if quantum physics is correct, that may be literally true, as well as philosophically, going back to the differing viewpoints and how it relates to our emotions and how we see reality. Fascinating, isn’t it?  Let’s continue.

    So, these particles that we’re all made up of vibrate at differing speeds. The slower they vibrate, the more solid something appears and the faster they vibrate, the less dense they are (like ice vs. water vs. steam). Mathematically speaking, the speed that these particles vibrate can go faster and faster into infinity. Eventually, I’m sure, some force of physics makes them slow down, but I don’t know enough about physics to discuss that, and we’re just talking hypothetically here for the moment.

    Because our bodies only vibrate at a certain frequency, we only perceive the things that vibrate in a general range that is near or equal to our own. Science has afforded us technology that can see a little further up the scale… but there is an infinite range beyond that which is still unviewable to us. So, how do we know that there isn’t an intelligent life form somewhere higher up on the scale that is simply vibrating at a speed that we cannot perceive?

    When we talk about vibration – we aren’t only talking about the physical body’s vibration, we’re talking about the soul. That’s what we mean when we say that we’re of a certain “vibration” and that the spirit world is a higher vibration (such that we can’t perceive them) and if we want to interact with them, they must lower their vibration or we must raise ours, and, I suppose, some combination of the two could allow us to meet in the middle.

    You know how Jesus says, that we are in this world, but not of it? Our bodies are physical; they are vehicles for the soul. Our body vibrates at a lower speed, but our soul – it is in this world and not of it. It is of a higher vibration. That is why we are able to perceive things from the higher dimension. Our souls still have the ability to connect to “home,” – and like Erik says, there’s always a part of you back at home base. Some of us have just retained the skills to connect, whereas others need to work a little harder to remember it.  What is happening now, as we go through the shift, our physical body’s vibration is being raised as well.

    Imagine that Jesus comes to earth and KNOWS all of this. But how do you explain that to ancient hebrew sheep herders with no knowledge of science? Through fables and analogous stories.  Quantum physics – your thought waves affecting the physical reality around you – would also explain how Jesus was able to perform miracles. His “faith” – the strength of his belief, creates his reality.

    Matthew 17:20: He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

    This same concept goes for Jesus’ ability to heal.  That’s what modern day energy healers and reiki masters do! It’s just harnessing the energy that is all around us through our thoughts and intentions (quantum theory).  Jesus passed this on to his own disciples. Same could be said for ‘magic/k.’  The spells, incantations, potions or whatever are just symbolic of the intentions behind them.  Thoughts creating reality.  The level at which things actually manifests depends on the energy level – the vibration – of the individual. Jesus must’ve been a bad ass… like… Yoda.  The force.  It’s all the same concept. :)

    I relate a lot of this back to Christianity just because it’s what I know the most of.  If you’ve studied some other religions more in depth, perhaps you can help us connect a few more dots :)

    There are SO MANY instances where Jesus makes comments like this… his sayings, and many of the scriptures, they have multiple meanings – layers of meanings. I think they all do and most people miss the connection because they’re only understanding ONE layer.  Like the creation myths we’ve already talked about earlier- they are all different pieces, different aspects and viewpoints, explaining the same thing.  Like the cube I referred to earlier – Truth. It’s all TRUTH, from a different viewpoint… no matter how completely different it looks from the outside – deep down it’s all the same thing.  Which, interestingly – is also a parallel to the idea that we are all a manifestation of a single being.  So many layers! So many clues!

    So – there’s a few parallels between Jesus and Krishna too – they were both born through divine conception. Thirteen prophets before Jesus were considered “born of a virgin” – that doesn’t necessarily mean literally, you have to find what the symbology of “virgin” is.  Jesus, Krishna, the Egyptian Sun God Horus and several others are resurrected, many of them are a “flesh” manifestation of a higher being (Krishna was the living incarnation of Vishnu).

    Hare Krishna is based on the teachings of Krishna and spreading “Krishna Consciousness,” and some of the tenets of that religion include:

    • The systematic propagation of spiritual knowledge to society at large and the education of all people in the techniques of spiritual life in order to check the imbalance of values in life and to achieve real unity and peace in the world.
    • To bring the members of the Society together with each other and nearer to Krishna, the prime entity, thus to develop the idea within the members, and humanity at large, that each soul is part and parcel of the quality of Godhead (Krishna).
    • To bring the members closer together for the purpose of teaching a simpler and more natural way of life.

    These are all the same tenets of Christianity as well, if you substitute the word “God” or the name “Jesus”  for “Krishna.”

    In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna, states that he is the door through which salvation is found, the Lord, and the one true friend. And Jesus says, “I am the truth, the way, and the life.”  Many of the stories about Jesus and his disciples mirror those of Buddha and his own followers. And there’s a hell of a lot of similarities between Hinduism and Buddhism. Does this mean that either Jesus, Buddha, or Krishna didn’t exist and one is based on the others? Or that none of them existed and are based on something older? Or that they all DID exist and just spoke the same message? Or that Krishna and Buddha were actually foretelling of Jesus’ coming? Or that Jesus is the reincarnation of Krishna? Or that Buddha is the reincarnation of Krishna? Or that Jesus is the reincarnation of Buddha who is the reincarnation of Krishna? Or that we’re all a manifestation of the same single being so that means Jesus is Krishna AND Buddha. Buddha is Krishna AND Jesus… and so we are all Krishna AND Jesus AND Buddha?!?! *head explodes!!!!!*

    This doesn’t mean that Jesus, Buddha, and Krishna are direct parallels. How could they be? They come from totally different cultures. But the CONCEPT of their teaching is the same. They all taught enlightenment, which, by the way, is an evolution – a process of discovery –  just as anything else.

    Crucifixion itself, in many forms, is a big theme in mysticism as well as religion. Crucifixion, death, resurrection and pieces of enlightenment is the typical process represented to us time and again by both religion and secret societies.

    Pick up any book by Mark Booth (The Secret History of the World) and he’ll point out that this is an allusion to the secretive Greek Mystery schools and secret societies that evolved from them. He thinks it’s part of their initiation ritual where a near death experience is induced through an altered state of consciousness, resulting in enlightenment. I suppose that was basically what happened with the woman whose near death experience Elisa posted a week or so ago. Booth’s book picks out a lot of other similarities between world religion and esoteric occultism and ties them back to mysticism and spirituality, too, including some of the ones we’ve talked about here. He posits that many of the “saviors” throughout different religions and mythologies are representative of the sun, the center of our solar system.  The galactic alignment that happens on this year’s winter solstice can be perceived, symbolically, as the crucifixion of our sun, thus it is portrayed in the religions of planet earth, showing many “Sons” of God, born of virgins on the winter solstice, teaching enlightenment, being crucified, and resurrected.

    I know there are some people out there who believe all the great prophets – Krishna, Muhammad, Buddha, Jesus, etc. etc. were all messengers of the same thing. It’s pretty much the basis of the Baha’i faith (if you don’t know what Baha’i is, looke here:’%C3%AD_Faith).  I think they were, or at least that’s what their stories are meant to portray (or maybe BOTH).  Each put their own spin on it to better relate to their audience, which, coincidentally, is also what the Baha’i believe.  Not to mention, history has had its effect on their teachings. Some were written down and a lot of editing went on. Some were meant to be stories told with a side commentary about the meaning, but that portion has been lost and all we’re left with is the fable itself. But the underlying message is there.

    *Side story about Baha’i – about three years ago, I used to frequent a Subway during lunch next to my old office. One of the happiest individuals I have ever met worked there. He was a foreigner with a distinct accent that I can’t quite place – possibly Turkish? He was Baha’i. I know this, because he gave me a card and asked me to read about it. If I only knew then what I know now. :) He would always tell you to smile and ask you for the “secret password” before he would hand you your sandwich.  Of course, the secret password was “Love.”

    Next week we’re going to talk about the true meaning of Salvation, Biblical prophecy, Revelations, the Rapture, and the “end times.”

    Welcome to our channeled mini-series to be aired for the next few Tuesday’s courtesy of blog member, Ash. Please enjoy!

    I first came to CE last October – a complete novice on all things spiritual. I can say that it was no accident, we’ve all come here for a reason. Elisa and Erik are the reason I started my own journey, and what a journey it has been. I know that my purpose here, for now, is to help those around me.  That seems pretty vague, but I like to think it’s just broad – I can help anyone who is led to me, in whatever way they need at that time.  I can only assume that I am getting this partly because my own understanding has grown in leaps and bounds, and continues to do so even now – and I’m now able to make connections between things that I could not see before (Amazing Grace! I once was blind, but now I see!).  One of my guides is with me specifically for spiritual development, and I think has been instrumental in my sudden bursts of understanding.  The information in this series is actually cobbled together bits and pieces of my conversations with various people over the last couple of months – people who were strangers who not so coincidentally crossed my path. In our conversations, I found that I was saying things that I never knew I knew! I suppose it was truly “remembering.”  So I’ve sort of stitched all of those conversations together in a single, fluid explanation which I hope will help everyone at Channeling Erik see the connection between all things spiritual – including religion. So here it goes….

     Religion!  It’s probably one of the most divisive topics anyone can think of (maybe next to politics – happy election year!). But when you really get down to it – the essence of every religion is the same. Heck, a lot of religions even tend to have overlapping themes.Those who don’t have a deeper spiritual understanding can’t see the links at first glance – they’ll argue about the literal interpretations of two different texts and how they can’t possibly be similar.  But other people can look at the themes and find plenty of similarities between many of them – resurrection, born of a virgin, son of god are just a few that we can name that are common among many religions, not just Christianity.  Many skeptics would like to use that to discredit religion. “Look, they’re just repeating the same story over and over.  Your religion is a farce.”But shouldn’t the fact that certain themes are repeated over and over mean something? I think it’s been relatively theorized (I don’t know how widely accepted, though) that most religions are at least similar, if not all evolved from a single one.   I think that is true – I think all religions essentially evolved form a single spiritual truth… and that God (or source) transcends religion. In fact, this is the only thing that possibly make sense to me. A fair and loving God would create us as perfect beings, give us free will to do as we please, and love us unconditionally no matter how bad we fuck up.  So how did we get so many different ideas about this “God” and the nature of existence?I think that over time, different cultures and spiritual teachers have latched on to various parts of that single spiritual truth, and re-interpreted it in ways that made sense to them. In that vein, truth can be found in every religion on earth. There is no right one or wrong one – just different interpretations of the same concepts. But over time, we’ve forgotten where it all comes from, and have been reduced to hating that which we perceive as different from ourselves.Reading sites like Channeling Erik and books by New Age authors is what helped me connect these dots.

    Scientifically-minded skeptics like to scoff at any and all religious beliefs as well as the supernatural – but technically speaking, science IS their religion. Their doctrine is material information, and their book is tangible, repeatable results. They want “evidence” to prove the existence of a God, but all of reality is subjective-even theirs. And absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. How many spiritual experiences (their evidence!) have they ignored simply because they did not believe it possible? A closed mind is a wasted thing.

    Every mental construct that we have created throughout our lives has created a frame of reference, so to speak, for our own version of reality.

    What I’ve spent the last nine months trying to do is break down all of those mental barriers- all the conditioned responses, all the social constructs. I’ve referred to it as “unlearning.” All of those things cause us to form an opinion – on everything! That includes Science – it’s focus is the physical, tangible reality. What I’ve found is – you can only see something for what it really is – the Truth – when you have no opinion at all.

    I read an example Erik gave us a while back. At the time I thought I understood what it meant, but I realized I didn’t fully comprehend it until just a few days ago. Erik used facets of a diamond, but for simplicity’s sake, I’m going to use a cube.

    Say you have this cube – the cube represents Truth. Christians are looking at the right side of the cube. Politics looks at the left side. Scientists are looking at the bottom of the cube. Psychologists look at the top of the cube. And insert any other discipline to look at the front and the back – it doesn’t matter.

    Each one of the sides of the cube is Truth. A single side just represents a viewpoint, an opinion, a frame of reference – it’s Truth from one angle – but it’s still Truth. The only way you can see the whole of Truth is to pull back and look at the entire thing objectively – pull away from the single frame of reference. It’s at that point you realize that the whole of it – together – is truth. All of us – the Christians, the Buddhists, the Scientologists and the Scientists are arguing about who is right.  But we are all right! We are all looking at the Truth through our own frame of reference and we can’t identify with any of the other frames until we look at the whole cube and not just one side.

    We have such a hard time pulling away from a frame of reference (or rather, looking at something objectively) because every single thing we think and do is in some way in relevance to something else – we can’t fully comprehend what a thing means to us without knowing it’s opposite – this is yin and yang – the opposing forces, balancing one another. You can not know what love is, if you do not know fear. That’s why we’re here. To experience and learn. Or more accurately – to experience and remember.

    So many people will misinterpret this to mean being able to see both sides of an argument, and it is that, to a certain degree. But “agreeing to disagree” is not what it’s about… because if you agree to disagree, both parties still believe their view is correct – that their view is better than the other, when in fact, that is just an opinion. Sure, there are certain parts of a viewpoint that are based on incorrect information. It happens, and those are the finer points that you can say, “This is incorrect because (insert statement of fact here).” Perhaps it’s just part of the human condition, and that’s why it pervades every aspect of our lives and causes a shit ton of social problems in the process.

    So essentially – in ALL THINGS – even where we disagree, we are all looking at the same thing, and describing the same thing – only we each interpret it differently. Those are our subjective psychological realities that we are creating with our thoughts.

    So let’s look at a handful of religions to begin with – Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam.  We know Christianity and Islam are pretty damn similar. But how does Buddhism fit in?  Well, I think these are all “dualistic” religions in a way. Christianity has Heaven, it has Hell, it has God and it has Satan.  Islam has all of these things too.  They are perceived as external forces and places.  Both religions’ basic theme boils down to trying to teach people how to think and act, resist Satan’s temptation, in order to obtain heaven – and Christianity in particular, wants to bring that heaven to earth. I don’t know enough about the Koran to know whether or not that is part of their theme, also, but I do know that they have a “Heaven” that they’re trying to get to, too.Now let’s look at Buddhism – I’m not nearly as well schooled in the terminology here, so forgive me if I make a mistake. What I’ve learned of Buddhism comes from New Age stuff. But I have the “ego” which are your thoughts.  You have suffering, and the end goal is enlightenment, right? Nirvana?Well look at the parallels here:  The “Ego” = Satan,  Suffering = Hell, Enlightenment/Nirvana = Heaven… so where does God fit in? God is you- the spirit inside you…the observer of your thoughts.The difference between Christianity/Islam and Buddhism and other Eastern religions and philosophies is that Buddhism teaches you that heaven is a state of being – it internalizes all of the things that Christianity and Islam see as “separate.”   So basically… a different way of explaining the same thing.Hinduism and Buddhism have a few things in common, too – meditation and introspection, their state of suffering is the “madness” that we’re all born into, the delusion.  They’re trying to work their way out of it via reincarnation – trying to get rid of their Karma so they don’t have to come back anymore.  So where does reincarnation link to anything else? Well, the Bible used to have hints of it until they were taken out.  Interesting link, no? Two seemingly very different religions with LOTS in common.I think that the underlying messages between most religions (I’m not including stuff like Jehova’s witness, which are just another evolution of the Bible itself…but interestingly enough I have some theories about Scientology and Mormonism as well) goes even deeper than these larger themes.
    If we take a good look at creation mythology from various religions around the world, we’ll find some interesting similarities between religions and science.Everybody knows the Christian story of creation – God created the Heavens and the Earth, and then the Garden of Eden and all the animals, and then last he created his crowning jewel – Adam, from the earth itself – and he did it all in just seven days. There’s a lot of debate between Creationists and Evolutionists about what we should teach our kids.  If the story of creation is real, then the theory that there was a huge space explosion that flung matter into the far corners of the Universe that somehow made an evolutionary leap from stardust to plant life to animal life to humanity over millions of years doesn’t exactly coincide. And a lot of other religions have creation myths that aren’t exactly compatible, either. How can these possibly be the same?The Hebrew word for “Adam” literally means “dust.” We already knew that, right? God made Adam from dust. But did you also know that it can also mean “stardust?”  And that “Eve” means “life?”  And since Eve was created from Adam’s rib…we could very easily posit “From stardust, God created life.”  Wow.  Sounds a lot like the big bang, afterall! And God first created the earth, and then the plants, and then the animals and then humans? That sounds a lot like the stages of evolution.  And thanks to my friend Thomas, a theology and philosophy student, for enlightening me to the meanings in the Hebrew language.We can also compare that to the Mayan creation myth. The Mayans say God first created the earth, then the plants, then the animals, and then tried to create man three times, but failed.  Each time, God created man out of a different substance – first mud, but that didn’t work out, so he destroyed them. Then he tried trees, but that didn’t work out either, and all the tree people fled to the forest and turned into monkeys.  Ok…so first men were mud, then men were plants, then men were animals – also sounds a lot like the stages of Evolution. Picking up on a theme here?

    In case you’re curious, the final creation of man, according to the Maya – the one that stuck – was corn. They made man out of corn and that was the final version. Does this mean the Maya literally think they came from corn? I doubt it. What you have to ask yourself is: What did corn symbolize to the ancient Maya? See – it’s not always literal.  Interestingly enough, the Maya also describe a great flood which destroyed one of the previous creations of man.  So does the Bible. Coincidence?

    Let’s look at the Hindu creation myth for a second. According to the Hindus, Vishnu, Lord Siva (also known as Maheshwara) and Brahma, are considered as the supreme Trimurti in Hinduism, are not three separate Gods, but three manifestations of the same Supreme soul, Brahman.

    In the story, the universe and everything in it was created by Brahma – actually manifested THROUGH Brahma, the creator manifestation of the supreme soul. Let that sink in for a moment – everyone wants to call Hindusim a polytheistic religion because they have 700 some odd Gods, but if my understanding is correct, those 700 gods are manifestations – different aspects or expressions, if you will, of a single God. Kind of like the Holy Trinity on steroids.

    In the beginning, there was only Avyactha, or ‘The inexpressible.’ In this emptiness, Lord Vishnu, the preserver appeared (Remember, Vishnu is a manifestation of Brahman) in the form of a child, lying on the leaf of a banyan tree. As soon as he appeared in this form, his mind was filled with doubts about his identity. Then his questions were answered by an unmanned voice- the voice of the supreme soul (Brahman), which is his true form.

    Now think about that parallel for a moment – Christians often think they’ve heard the voice of God speak to them.  Instead of writing them off as a religious lunatic, as most people would, questioned them further. Having a good understanding of how psychic phenomena works can explain a lot of this. Does the voice come from outside or within?  Is it your own voice or a different voice? I would bet that in most cases, when people think they’ve heard the voice of God, they’re really hearing their higher self, or maybe a guardian angel or a guide… although higher self info DEFINITELY comes from within, is very loud and clear and probably pretty “god-like.”

    So – you hear a big booming voice in your head, and you call it your higher self. A Christian calls it God.  In reality, your higher self, and you, are both manifestations of your true form (God!) so it’s really the same thing from two varying perspectives.

    At the moment of Vishnu’s manifestation, his mind was immediately filled with doubts about his true identity. He did not know who he was, he didn’t know that he was a manifestation of Brahman. But why? New Age philosophy teaches that we are born into a state of unknowing – we already know everything there is to know, but we’ve forgotten it, and the purpose of being here is to remember.  Spiritists and Mediums speak of the “veil” – the thing that keeps us from knowing that spirits are all around us. Sometimes it’s referred to as “The Veil of Forgetfulness” – we move from the spirit realm into an incarnated body (like Vishnu did) and we forget who we really are.  So, from the moment of our birth, we are filled with unknowing – no knowledge of who we were.  No knowledge about this world, a state of innocence, for sure, but also a state of doubt about our original identity.

    Is there a biblical parallel to this? You betcha. Adam and Eve were innocent in the Garden of Eden. They had no knowledge of good and evil until that embarrassing apple incident. Once they ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge, their eyes were opened to duality, and they were cast out of Eden… paradise. Being “cast out of Eden” is analogous to leaving the spirit realm – to be born into a physical body and experience the good and evil of duality. And we pass through the veil on the way – forgetting who we are, like Vishnu.  But we always have access to home, by looking within.

    Thanks for you insight, Ashley! You never cease to amaze us all.

    I thought you all would love this email from our lovely long term blog member, Tracy. After she saw the painting Eric Grbich did of my Erik, she commissioned him to paint one of her own son, Adam. The finished masterpiece was no less stunning. If anyone would like his email address, let me know. My email is

    This is the latest creation by the wonderful Eric Grbich.  He painted my Adam and we love the finished product! 

    It’s funny, but whilst Eric was painting this, I took part in a phone conference with you all and Jamie and she told me that Adam enjoyed learning to paint, so I’m sure he’s been there with Eric, seeing how it’s done!

    Elisa, I would just like to say that when I first saw the painting it took my breath away – because I had already seen it! 

    A few weeks before, I had a dream where Adam held the portrait up in front of me and it looked exactly as it is.  His face was straight and serious, with those blue eyes shining through the sepia tones.  I remember staring at it for the longest time, willing it not to fade, but the image stayed with me.  I was curious to see if Eric’s portrait was the same, and it was!!  

    I know Adam has been with Eric through the whole process and it was his way of showing me the finished product.  I could imagine him saying to Eric, ‘Make me look handsome for my mom!’ 

    On the back, Eric wrote, ‘Tracy’s Handsome Boy’.

    We all just love it so much and – like you with Erik’s portrait –  can’t bear to part with it to get it framed. 

    Thank you, so much, Eric.  With your extraordinary talent, you have made the Lamont family very happy!!

    And now for part three of our interview with George Carlin. It just keeps getting more and more raunchy. Sorry.

    Me: Okay, so you crossed over. First it was dark, then you thought, “I am God,” then you laughed, you clapped your hands. Then what happened? How did your beliefs change at that point?

    George (laughing): Well, it was interesting to think there was something greater than me. As we all know, I am the best!

    Me: Biggest d%#$, best person, one step under God, eh?

    George: Yes.

    Erik: You and God probably don’t have any d#$% measuring contests though, do you?

    Jamie laughs hard.

    Erik: I wouldn’t if I were you.

    Jamie (crying with laughter): You guys are killing me!

    George: Wouldn’t you want that, though? Wouldn’t you want a big d#$% in your God?

    Me (teasing): Oh, I would accept nothing less! But she’s a woman, so…

    George: I would still want her to have a big d#$%.

    Erik: She’d have to be a hermaphrodite. Or maybe she has a strap-on.

    George: Only if it was black.

    Me: God, we can’t put this in the book, can we? Maybe a warning is warranted.

    George: I dare you. Maybe when you get to my name in your book, we’ll lay out some of the facts and the rest of it will be just blacked out just like the JFK files.

    Me: That’ll take a dozen black Magic Markers.

    George: You know, I think that might be the beauty and the niche in mine. All the cuss words, just black ‘em out.

    Me: No! I like that! I like the curse words. They won’t recognize you without them.

    George: George Carlin Stripped Down.

    Me: We’ll just put “For mature audiences only.”

    George: Yeah, that’ll really work!

    Me: Well, people just need to learn how to lighten up. Now, can you describe your surroundings when you crossed over into the afterlife? You said nobody greeted you at first, but that’s because of your atheistic beliefs. Did things eventually unfold? Did loved ones come? Tell me what happened.

    George: You want me to talk about when the lights came on.

    Me: Yeah.

    George: I saw one person.


    Me: And who was that?

    George: It was not the person I expected to see, but it was the person I needed to see.

    Me: Mm.

    Jamie: He’s talking about a wife!

    Me: And why did you need to see her?

    Jamie: His first wife.

    George: I had no closure. I didn’t realize I had a broken heart.

    Me: Aw.

    George: Sometimes strength is too good of a Band-Aid, and you aren’t allowed to see how rotten you are inside.

    Me: Aw, Sweetie. Rotten not in the sense of bad but in the sense of damaged?

    George: Yeah, damaged.

    Me: I’m wondering if that’s why you died from heart disease?

    George: Yeah, sure. Let’s believe it’s not the Vicodin or the other drugs. Let’s believe that.

    Me: Well, the drugs, whatever, that’s self-medication for a broken heart. It all ties in.

    George laughs.

    Me: So, what did it look like, your surroundings?

    George: It was black, except where we were it was lit. Everything else was very monotone colored, black and dark, and I held her. I held her, and as we talked and I understood what my pain was about and what my life was and who I was to her, then I got to see more.

    Me: Mm. And what was it that you saw?

    George: I saw other people who I knew, most of them I didn’t, but even though my heart didn’t know their faces, I knew they were friends, not foes. It had to be one of the most humbling experiences I’ve ever had.

    Me: I can imagine.

    George: And it was through this that my wife taught me how I could watch our family on Earth. She explained how she knew everything that had been happening and going on.


    Me: Are y’all still together?


    Jamie: He’s taking about being a bigamist.

    Me: You’re a bigamist over there?

    George: No, I still have a wife on Earth. One living, one dead. I don’t want to trade them in, one for another, so why can’t I keep them both?

    Me: Of course! 

    George Carlin on Death and Dying

  • June20th2012


    Fasten your seat belts. Parts three and four only get worse.

    Me: So you passed over. Was it peaceful?

    George: It was a fucking piece of shit.

    Me: Oh, no! Why?

    George: You know, I think I bought into the real estate—I bought into the idea that this tunnel of light was going to save my ass, and it was going to tell me it was beautiful and fine, and it was going to hold me like a baby and let me nurse on some big woman’s breasts, and everything was going to be well.

    Me (laughing): Oh my god, George.

    George: Sure enough, it was what I’ve been saying all along. When the lights go out, the lights go out. And they went out for a long time. Do you know, what saved me—?

    Jamie laughs and then sighs to compose herself again.

    George: —is that I started laughing about it. I started laughing, and I had this moment of realization that what if I am God?

    Jamie and I giggle.

    George: You know, that trick of the mind got me rolling so fast that it actually turned the goddamn lights on!

    Me: That’s the magic password, maybe. Not “Open sesame,” but –

    Jamie: I AM GOD!

    George: The damn lights came on, and—

    Me: Were you clapping your hands like with The Clapper?

    George: Yeah, twice!

    Me: Okay. There we go! God invented the first Clapper.

    George: And yet again, I was disappointed. Nobody greeted me with flowers; I won no award; there was no gold watch, no golden streets—

    Me: Aw! Poor baby.

    George: –no Pearly Gates. If it’s not true, tell me why people set themselves up for failure. We do it. We buy into this when death is really simpler than life could ever be.

    Me: So, back up and tell me a little about what beliefs you had before you died. Were you an atheist? Is that what you’re saying?

    George: I grew up Roman Catholic. I got put into the schools; I got hounded. You know I grew up in White Harlem.

    Jamie (laughing): Is there such a thing?

    Me: I don’t know!

    Jamie: I guess it’s like the bad neighborhood, but filled with white people.

    (God I hope this doesn’t get me into trouble.)

    George: Everything was rough. Hope was just as strong as having a bullet to the head, and you didn’t know whether you were going to have hope or the bullet in the head. Which one is going to be better? So, I quickly grew to be very cynical and sarcastic. It’s my outlet. To be nailed to the wall and be told what you’re going to believe and how it was though the fucking people teaching you had never—

    Jamie (flustered, trying to keep up): Phew!

    George: — been there themselves, then why the fuck are you going to believe in this?

    Me: Exactly!

    George: So, I renounced everything, and atheism quickly became my thing, my way of living. There was nothing about it that bothered me. And trust me, it’s not that I shut off and didn’t want to believe anything. I explored. But through my explorations, it gave me more strength to become an atheist.

    This YouTube really gives you an idea of George’s journey to atheism.

  • May24th2012


    I’m so very impressed by the number of thought provoking questions that have been submitted for Erik to answer. The list is very long now, so if you are one of the ones who has asked questions, I promise I’ll get to them. I just hope you’re patient! That said, I’m still open to more questions, so bring it on! And now for today’s topic:

    Me: What does God look like and how was He or She created? I think we’ve asked this before, but a blog member wants to know or maybe just needs clarification.

    Erik: What does God look like? God is energy and can present itself to you anyway that YOU feel that you want to identify with God. If you’re thinking omnipresent and full of energy, that’s what you’re going to get. If you’re thinking white guy with a beard, that’s what you’re going to get. If you identify with God as a woman, that’s what you’re getting.

    Me: Well, what does God look like when He or She or It looks into the mirror?

    Jamie and Erik laugh.

    Me: No seriously! What does God see in the mirror?

    Erik: Mom! The mirror? The mirror is US.

    Me: Oh, whoa!

    Erik: You know, God divided God’s energy to know God’s self by going through us. We’re the many, many mirrors.

    Me: So God isn’t inherently a white ball of light or anything, right? Unless I want to identify with him that way.

    Erik: Right. God is us and we are God, part and whole.

    Me: So, how was God created then? I’m guessing that since linear time is an illusion, that God always “was.” But we want you, the expert, to intervene here.

    Erik (laughing) Did you just call me an expert?

    Jamie (giggling): He thinks that’s funny. He’s repeating what you were saying about God always being there, but humans can’t understand that there is no beginning or end. You know, we’re not getting born, then getting older, then dying and disappearing, but that’s what most people tend to think. That’s their frame of mind.

    Erik: God Source or God Energy has always existed. It was not created with the Big Bang. It didn’t grow with evolution. We’re the ones—humans—who were created by the Big Bang and evolution. We can’t compare ourselves to God Energy, and that’s what humans will automatically try to do.

    Me: Okay.

    By the way, I just want to say that my eldest, Kristina, is graduating from medical school tomorrow! She’ll be a bonafide, certified doctor, then she starts her anesthesiology residency sometime in June. Busy lady lately. I couldn’t be prouder. I know Erik is, too.
