    So many of you have expressed doubt about that part of the Jesus interview where Jesus says he did not die on the cross. Since then, I’ve heard some chatter about how historians are supporting this claim. (Like we need to get a second opinion for what Jesus says? Ha ha.) Diane, one of the Channeling Erik Facebook Group members shared this link. Things like this and more are what you can get out of being a member of the group. Please ask for an invite. It only costs the click of the mouse.  

    NEW EVIDENCE THAT JESUS DIDN’T DIE ON THE CROSS

    Also, my husband and I will be going to Norway to see relatives and unwind. We’ll be leaving July 2nd, returning July 13th. I’ll be up in the mountains with very unreliable internet (plus the data plans are outrageous) so I won’t be posting during that time, too. I also won’t be answering emails, approving comments or answering Facebook private messages, so please don’t send them if you can help it. I don’t want to come home to a million messages! :) (Note the insertion of a smiley face so that you know I’m just not being a bitch.)

    Me: Okay, here’s a question from one of the blog members. What’s the association between the soul, the body and the mind?

    Erik: Well, that could be taken a few ways. Do they mean the exact physical association or the energetic association?

    Me: Hmm. I don’t know, physical maybe? Or both?

    Jamie laughs hard at Erik!

    Jamie (to Erik, still laughing): Oh really? That’s not a joke, Erik?

    She continues to laugh a while until she finally catches her breath enough to tell me what he said.

    Erik: It’s the belly button.

    Me: Oh, okay!

    Jamie: I was like, ‘What?’

    Me (chuckling): Ah, so that’s why you have to contemplate your navel! It’s all coming together now! The key to all the answers in the universe come right down to the belly button!

    Erik (laughing): Well, that’s what kids like to believe, right? Everything is connected to the navel; the umbilical cord comes from it. That’s the first source of nourishment, that’s where the womb, the sacral chakra, Hara, the pocket of energy sits.

    Me: Oh!

    Erik: The Kundalini sitting right behind it is the base of the soul.

    Me (teasing): Ah, so THAT’S why it so important to clean the lint out of our belly buttons from time to time.

    Erik: Bingo! Hey, Mom, you know in Asian cultures they won’t put their finger in their belly button.

    Me: Really?

    Erik: Yeah, they’ll clean it out when they need to, but they don’t dig in their belly button, because they consider that something that might block the chakra and create something like stomach problems. There’s old school knowledge to it that’s thousands of years old that the belly is sacred.

    Me: Wow.

    Erik: So if I had to point to any place in the body, it wouldn’t be the brain. The brain is like—

    Jamie laughs hard again.

    Erik The brain is like the storage box that you rent that gets dropped off in your driveway. You put shit in it. It’s still on your property, and you’re storing nice things in there, but it doesn’t run the whole show.

    Me: Oh, okay.

    Jamie: Erik! So he’s saying if he had to point to a physical place, it’d be the belly of the body.

    Me: Okay. What about the energetic association of the soul within the body and mind?

    Erik: Energy exchange between body, mind and soul, this happens at every level, in every cell. Energy exchange of all three happens consistently throughout. It’s not like energy is kinda leaking out bits, traveling down an artery or vein and feeding different areas. It encompasses the entire being from the intracellular level up.

    Me: So the energetic connection is pervasive between the three?

    Erik: Yeah, cuz remember, it’s ALL energy. Everything is energy. The mind, the body and the soul..

    Me: You make it sound so very easy, Sweetie!

    Erik: It really is, Mom. Everything is very simple, really. It just requires a different way of looking at things.

    Me: Very cool, my darling genius.

    This little guy has the right idea:

    Kundalini Power

    Now, YOU pick a navel to contemplate:

    Candidate Number One

     

    Candidate Number Two (and Iola’s First Choice. Okay and mine too.)

    Candidate Number Three (for Cat Lovers and Those with Questionable Taste)

    The holidays are over, everyone might be a few ounces heavier, but hopefully your hearts are full of love and gratitude and that that feeling will endure the years. God this is sappy. If my kids read this they’d be rolling their eyes. (Some of them do that often enough at things that I say or do that they could probably bench press 400 pounds with their eyelid muscles.)

    We finished the poll for a possible CE Weekend in the UK and I have 24 with a great interest. It’s be pretty cool to start spreading this event internationally. Some commented on other places they’d like to see the events take place: Australia, San Diego, Colorado and others. Let’s make the survey official. Where would you want to see the next CE Weekend take place?

    Now let’s learn more about spirits! 

    Me: Erik, let’s talk about you and your brethren spirits. What do you think about that? Are you game?

    Erik: I’m game for anything you can think of.

    Me: Good. What do you and others look like over there?

    (Pause)

    Jamie (giggling nervously): Let’s skip past the first five words he used and get down to the real stuff.

    Me: Uh oh.

    Erik: Energy.

    Me: Well, come on. Tell me the first five words! It’s not age-appropriate? Is that it?

    Jamie (laughing nervously): No, it’s not age-appropriate!

    Me: Okay.

    Jamie: It was completely fresh out to the gate teasing, vulgar language.

    Me: Uh oh. This should be fun though. All right, so you look like energy. Tell me more.

    (Pause)

    Jamie: He’s describing that they don’t have to hold shape all the time. They don’t ever have to present themselves in the way they appeared when they were in a body on Earth. (Pause) He’s telling me they can change shapes as they see fit, but I asked him ‘What’s the original state. (To Erik) If you’re not thinking about anything, Erik, what is the comfort zone in what you look like?

    (Pause)

    Erik: Pure light.

    Me: Hm Interesting. Like a ball of light or a beam or what?

    Erik: Not necessarily like a circle ball of light. A little looser than that, oval, oblong. It’s a light source of its own, and it shines out.

    Me: Is it kind of like the orbs that we capture in photographs sometimes?

    Erik: Yes.

    Me: Okay. Now you come to me as “Erik,” the shape and look of “Erik,” and I guess you do the same with Jamie. Do you do that with everybody? Do you keep your personality [and body] like Erik up there?

    Erik: Well, when I’m communicating with people on Earth, especially the ones associated with the blog or who know about me as I was on Earth, I want present myself exactly the way that I looked then.

    Jamie laughs. I had no idea why until she composed herself and continued to translate.

    Erik: –which, by the way, was handsome.

    Jamie and I giggle.

    Me: Is that what he says?

    Jamie: He’s using some other words.

    Erik: Debonair. We can say that one.

    Jamie: Debonair. That’s a big word.

    Me: Debonair, yeah. (Somehow that adjective doesn’t belong to Erik. Sorry bud.) Okay. Anything else about how you guys look?

    Erik: Nah. Probably what’s most important to know is that we don’t need a shape. I think that people think that if there’s something more holy to us or more grandeur, that they want to dress us or shape us—

    (Long pause)

    Jamie (to Erik): Wait. What are you talking about?

    (Very long pause)

    Jamie bursts out in laughter.

    Jamie: I’m sorry. He just went off on a little sideline. He’s discussing how some people believe that they have had a past life experience or, let’s say, a near death experience. Let’s take this one. And he says that some of them will come back and say, “Oh, I was at a round table and everybody was wearing long robes.” It looks like I’m looking at a bunch of Romans, basically.

    He must have sent her the image.

    Me: Okay. Like togas.

    Jamie: Togas, yes.

    Me: Toga party!

    Erik: Who the fuck decides that because we’re ancient and all-knowing that we have to fucking wear togas? That’s ridiculous. Or that we’re more holy so we have to look like a monk. Appearances mean nothing of who we are, so you can kind of tell people’s dream state vs. people’s real near death experiences or cross over experiences—

    Jamie: That’s what he was talking about—the bullshit claims.

    Erik: Yeah. If you’re coming across stuff like that: “They all walked as if they were tiptoeing like an encore at a ballet show.”

    Jamie laughs.

    Erik: Pretty much, that’s going to be an overactive mind and that’s not going to be an authentic experience. It’s coming through filters that you’ve created, that you’ve decided it should look like.

    Me: Based on your beliefs. Just like you said: you afterlife experience you created while you were alive.

    Erik: Ding, ding, ding!

    Me: All right. Okay, you say you’re big, your light. Is it an infinite volume or—

    Jamie laughs hard, face in hand. I have an idea why.

    Me: Oh no. I know where that’s going. How big are you?

    Jamie shakes her head quickly and very nervously.

    Jamie (to Erik): No, how big is your light, Erik? Your light. (Pause) Your energy, Erik!

    (Pause)

    Jamie (To Erik, firmly): I’m not doing it! Come on.

    (Pause)

    Jamie: Um.

    (Pause. Again.)

    Jamie (laughing with the fingertips on both hands on her forehead, covering up her face.): Stop!

    Me: Erik!

    Jamie (still laughing): He’s not going to let up today. I don’t know what he ate for breakfast, but yes, they don’t really eat breakfast.

    Me: But they can.

    Jamie: If he did, it was Wheaties.

    Erik: In my “relaxed” state, the size of myself is—

    (Pause)

    Jamie: That’s so interesting. I’ve never asked him this question before, because I always see them as people.

    Me: Mm hm.

    Jamie: He’s showing me about an 18-inch diameter sphere down to about a 10-inch sphere and it’s not stagnant like a ball. The image he’s putting in my head, the sphere has a breath of its own. Our chest cavity moves while we breathe; this has kind of a pulse to it and a growth to it and a cycle it runs. Yeah, so I guess they’re smaller than what I had imagined.

    Me: Ah, Erik. You’re smaller than you let on to be!

    Jamie listens to him for a few seconds then blushes.

    Jamie: Next topic!

    Poor Jamie.

    Me: What are the spirits abilities after they transition, Erik?

    (Pause)

    Jamie: Oh, good. He can’t really get nasty with—well I guess he can, but. (To herself) Spirit’s abilities.

    (Pause)

    Jamie (to Erik with a shrug of her left shoulder): What can you do?

    Erik: Well, the first thing that you notice right away is time and travel. They don’t exist with the same parameters that we believe them to have when we’re alive. Period.

    Jamie (chuckling): Finally he sits down in the chair in front of me. I put a chair in front of me so that he’d be there, but he was kind of standing.

    Erik (sweeping his hand, palm down, across his chest): So fucking different. It’s nice. It feels more natural. It doesn’t feel like you’re being scheduled or being forced into a routine or needing to think ahead about how to set up a process, to achieve a goal. Here you don’t have that linear thought. You see it as a whole, as how it’s going to affect everything. Like the way that [humans] think right now, most people will get out their computers, look at their schedules and decide that at 8:00 they’re going to do this, 9:00, 10:00, dut, dut, so that by Friday, they have this finished.

    This is taken right from my playbook.

    Erik: Now imagine that you’re thinking in this way. I know a lot of people use the little image (now talking like a sissy) of dropping a pebble in the lake or in the pond—

    Jamie (smiling): He’s being really funny with his voice.

    Erik: And then it ripples out, you know, 360, it ripples out. It touches the edges of the water and then it comes back in ever so gently, but imagine that your thought is on every single ripple, every single wave, 360 again and again and again and again and again, and then back at you.

    Me: Interesting.

    Erik: Soooo fucking cool.

    Jamie: That must be his new phrase.

    Jamie and I laugh.

    Me: You’re still amazed by where you are and what you can do, huh?

    Erik: Yeah. There’s a lot to learn. It doesn’t—

    Jamie (to Erik): It? What’s “it”?

    Erik: Your abilities, your language, your base knowledge—this “it,” it doesn’t stop on you. There’s no end in sight. That’s the most exciting thing.

    Jamie (smiling): Well, that and a few other things. Just think nasty.

    Me: Oh, god. Of course. Boy, you are on a roll, Erik.

    Jamie: This is the dirtiest session. I have chosen not to say everything. Normally I’ll succumb and, like, turn red and do it, but I won’t do it this time!

    Me: We gotta put a leash on that boy!

    Jamie: We need to create a leash we can put on him.

    Me: Exactly. Now, what do you have to adjust to the most right after you transition?

    Jamie: His eyes light up and he kind of falls back into the chair and he goes—

    Erik: Immediately, the overwhelming sense of peace.

    Me: Mm.

    Erik: That you don’t have anything to worry about, that you don’t have any physical pain—

    Me: No homework. No chores!

    Jamie laughs.

    Erik (teasing): C’mon Mom. You think it’s simple. Think huge! All of a sudden, you have no concern if somebody is loving on you or hating you. There’s no need to please someone; there’s no—

    (Long pause)

    Jamie: He’s pausing.

    Erik: Cause and effect. There’s no cause and effect, and that’s—

    Me: Cuz that’s linear.

    Erik: Yeah. You’re right. That’s linear. It’s the first thing that you feel, and you think it’s so surreal that you want to call it a dream state and you know you’re going to come out of it. I bet half of you, upon dying, are going to start pinching yourself, because you won’t want to believe it’s real. And then it keeps going; it keeps going, and it remains consistent. That’s what blows you away. It’s consistent. It’s not contingent on anything that you do, anything that you experience, anything that you desire, think, want, none of it. This whole compassion and peace remains consistent.

    Me: That sounds good. Very good.

    Me: Okay, again, I’ve asked you this before, but I just want to see what else you’ve picked up. How are new souls born or created and why?

    (Long pause)

    Jamie (chuckling): He’s pausing. He’s repeating the question to me. It’s like he’s thinking about it.

    Erik: Let’s start with the idea of a new soul. Frankly, we’re not new at all.

    Me: Um hm.

    Erik: Because we all come from God Source, and God ain’t new.

    Me: Are you saying God’s getting a little long in the tooth?!

    Erik and Jamie laugh.

    Erik: But if you’re asking in terms of whether or not the soul is coming to the earth for the first time—

    Me: Or maybe just when the soul individuates or separated from Source. Hell, I don’t really know what I’m asking at all! Help me out here, buddy! Tell me what I’m asking! (I start laughing at my own confusion.)

    Erik: Well, think about it, Mom. We all have conscious collective memory.

    Me: Okay.

    Erik: Well, maybe we’ll call it a subconscious collective memory. So the definition of “new” doesn’t really fit.

    Me: What about a tentacle breaking off from the God Source, then? It’s still part of the old stuff, but it’s new from the standpoint of being a tentacle.

    Erik: Yeah, cuz even if a soul is having its first experience, it’s not new. So maybe we can ask if there are still spirits that have first experiences on earth.

    Me: Okay.

    Erik: We can say, yes. Yes there are. The population is growing. But you think, at the same time, uh, look at the rate of trees being cleared. These are all souls coming back to the Source. And of course there are souls that want to come in. These souls can take the shape of man, of animal—we’re really outgrowing ourselves.

    Me: Wow, so I’ll ask this one again: do animals always come back as animals, a plant as a plant and a rock as a rock?

    Erik: No, that’s like saying a black person can only come back as a black person. We’re not confined to race.

    Jamie: Oh, so Erik, you’re putting insects, animals, trees and humans all on the same level, and you’re considering these almost like all different races?

    Erik: Yeah!

    (Long pause as I wait (in vain) for elaboration.)

    Me: Okay. So these new souls, oops, I mean these new tentacles from Source are being projected to earth because it sort of accelerates God’s experience of Itself?

    Erik: Yep.

    Me: Because we have more bodies to—

    Jamie: To fill.

    Me: Okay. Now, do souls age? I mean, of course there’s no time, so how does that work?

    Erik: No, we gain knowledge and information, but we don’t age; we don’t grow old or weak. We don’t dissolve. It’s a conscious effort if you wanna dissolve and go back to God’s pure energy. And when you do that, you relinquish yourself, but you’re not burning or evaporating. The work you’ve done, the memories you’ve had, it maintains itself in that conscious pool of information.

    Me: But you can choose the age you want to appear as, obviously. Erik, you probably look like you’re twenty, twenty-one, but, you know, you could just as easily appear as eighty or ten.

    Erik: Yes. Yes.

    Me: Right. Now, do souls raise children in the afterlife?

    Erik: No, because as an energy source, you’re not helpless, not like having an infant who can’t walk or feed itself. It’s not like on earth where you have to protect and support and provide for a child until it can do that on its own. When you’re in spirit, you are on your own. That doesn’t mean we enjoy being alone all the time. We enjoy having units: family units, gatherings, friends, you know, intimacy.

    Me: Okay, so it’s not like you need to raise a child because they need support, nurturing, guidance and protection, but can you still have a family unit, create a family unit there and create children who grow up and enjoy that process, or…

    Erik: I know what you’re asking, and it sounds wonderful when you say it, but it just doesn’t fit with how we live. We don’t have that yearning within us, cuz there’s no drive to reproduce.

    Me: Oh. Well, what about this: If you have—like there was one family unit we talked about who died all at once in a car accident. Now the children and parents live together in the afterlife—have a little house they created, they grill outdoors and do all the things they used to do on earth—can you have that? I mean, say you were a soul family on earth, and uh, you know—

    Erik: Yes, Mom. I know what you’re saying and yes. You can maintain that family unit and you can play life just as you did on earth.

    Me: Okay.

    Erik: The only weak moment I can think of is when a person dies on earth—infant, child, teenager, adult or elderly or whatever—

    Jamie (giggling): He’s going through all the ages for us!

    Erik: So, at any age, there’s that weak spot when they arrive and they go, “You know, I might know where I am, but how does this work; what am I doing?”

    Me: Yeah.

    Erik: And that’s when we band together, and we say, “Let me show you; let me walk you around; let me open your mind.”

    Me: I see.

    Erik: But we’re only able to do as much as they’re willing to accept or even listen to, and when it gets over their head, it stops right there.

    Me: It reminds me of how kids all have to figure things out for themselves, make the same mistakes we made at their age, because they don’t want to listen to the advice that comes from our own experience. Reinventing the wheel.

    Dear Reader,

    The journey on which you’re about to embark will take you through stories that are deeply personal and involves a relationship between a mother and her son.

    As a physician raised by two atheists, I had no personal belief system about life after death. In a word, I was a confirmed skeptic. As my journey progressed, my mind opened. It is my sincerest hope that yours will open as well and that you will have a greater understanding of your own life and what’s to come ahead.

    Although Erik sometimes paints a rosy picture of the afterlife, time and time again he stresses that suicide is not the answer to one’s problems. If you struggle, please understand that the information in my blog and my book is no substitute for professional help. Please click here for a list of resources for help when you find yourself considering taking your own life. Know that they are readily available when you feel that hopelessness and despair that many of us feel from time to time in our lives.

    I refuse all donations and ad revenue on the blog. It is my dream to one day establish a nonprofit organization that delivers a variety of spiritual services for those who have lost loved ones to suicide and cannot afford that assistance on their own. It’s a mission of love, sacrifice, and dedication.

    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?

    (Pause)

    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.

    (Pause)

    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!

    Given the state of the Northeast Coast after the destruction Hurricane Sandy left in her wake, today’s radio show will likely be postponed since the producers are in New York City. I’ll keep you abreast of the situation. Meanwhile, I hope all of you will continue to send your prayers and light to that devastated area.
    As far as the Yahoo contest is concerned, voting has closed, and we anxiously await the final results. Of course the chances are slim. For example, some of the nominees have huge congregations backing them up. Nevertheless, I’m just so grateful for the outpouring of love and effort from all of you, and I’m tickled pink for even having been nominated at all!
    And now, our own, Betty Daniel, shared this Huffpo article. I thought it was so fascinating that I couldn’t help but jump Erik’s queue of wisdom and post it. Sorry Erik. Tomorrow I plan to post some interesting information about Mother Earth.

    Scientist Shows What Happens To ‘Soul’ After Death

    In a video that recently aired on “Through the Wormhole” narrated by Morgan Freeman on the TV channel Science, Dr. Hameroff claims, “I believe that consciousness, or its immediate precursor proto-consciousness, has been in the universe all along, perhaps from the Big Bang.”

    Understanding where consciousness comes from could solve mysteries such as what happens to the “soul” during near-death experiences, or when a person dies.

    Dr. Hameroff goes on to share hypothetical scenarios derived from the Orch-OR (orchestrated objective reduction) theory of consciousness that he and Roger Penrose, mathematician and physicist, proposed in 1996. According to the theory, consciousness is derived from microtubules within brain cells (neurons) which are sites of quantum processing.

    But what exactly is consciousness, where does it come from and can it be scientifically proven? Dr. Stuart Hameroff, MD, is Professor Emeritus at the Departments of Anesthesiology and Psychology and the Director of the Center of Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona and much of his research over the past few decades has been in the field of quantum mechanics, dedicated to studying consciousness.

    According to Dr. Hameroff, in a near-death experience, when the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing, and the microtubules lose their quantum state, the quantum information in the microtubules isn’t destroyed. It’s distributed to the universe at large, and if the patient is revived, the quantum information can go back to the microtubules. In this event, the patient says they had something like a near-death experience, i.e. they saw white light or a tunnel or floated out of their body. In the event that the patient is not revived, “it’s possible that the quantum information can can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul,” he said.

    The Orch-OR theory of consciousness remains controversial in the scientific community. Many scientists and physicists have challenged it, including MIT physicist Max Tegmark, who wrote a paper in 2000 that was widely cited.

    Still, Dr. Hameroff believes that “nobody has landed a serious blow to the theory. It’s very viable.”

    This post is one we should definitely share on Facebook and other social venues!

    SCIENCE CONFIRMS SURVIVAL

    by J.J. Snyder

    A group of British scientists, including two astrophysicists, a thermodynamicist, and other professional researchers, are conducting experiments and solving complex equations that they believe furnish conclusive and irrefutable proof of human survival of bodily death.

    Michael Roll, a rationalist and freethinker who heads The Campaign for Philosophical Freedom, is unofficial spokesman for the group. He has recently revealed information that could drastically alter humankind’s entire belief system regarding continuation of consciousness beyond the grave. Roll, of Bristol, England, a former businessman, is a long-time explorer of paranormal phenomena. He and his colleagues’ series of discoveries, involving mathematical equations and physical experiments, when taken together, furnish empirical evidence that makes an extremely strong case for continuing after-death survival of the human psyche.

    The group has come to regard that continuation as the functioning of a natural, universal law, the study of which is strictly a branch of chemistry, physics, and mathematics, rather than an article of religious faith.

    This scientific approach to a subject which heretofore has been discussed mainly as a function of theology is stirring lively debate, not only in Britain, but worldwide. The assertion that immortality is conferred on humankind through natural law alone, rather than by an all-powerful, monotheistic God, is awakening interest and triggering penetrating questions from the general public, including churchgoers, as they become more fully informed about prospects for continuing existence beyond the transition known as “death.”

    The researchers’ premise is that certain recent mathematical discoveries, combined with results of in-depth exploration of physics and quantum mechanics, now furnish verification for many previous well-documented scientific experiments dealing with what has been previously known as “psychic phenomena.” These experiments were, and are being, conducted by various researchers from the late nineteenth century down to the present day, and all have a common thread. Each features repeated appearances by, and communication with, entities from the next level of existence who have experienced the event known as death, and yet maintain consciousness, remain articulate, and sometimes become visible on this physical level. At times these visitors from etheric realms can be touched, felt, and even held tightly by incarnate humans. Fully authenticated and documented visits to living family members, friends, and researchers have long proven the reality of these manifestations, but their cause and origin has remained inexplicable in the context of heretofore known laws of physics. However, many of the questions relating to these phenomena have been answered by the British researchers, and ongoing exploration continues.

    Discarnate entities sometimes appear through materialization mediums – those specially endowed individuals who are able to furnish a psychic link between the two planes. At other times, usually when influenced by extremely strong emotions on either, or both, the etheric or physical level, materializations occur spontaneously. Other mediums, while not always able to effect materializations, are still able to relay communications between the two levels of existence.

    Much of the evidence provided by certain mediums has been subjected to close, even hostile, scientific scrutiny, and found to be true and valid. Recently, there have been many reports of discarnate communication occurring by electronic means – telephone calls, tape recordings, fax messages, and even long discourses on computer screens. Etheric entities identify themselves, answer questions put to them by experimenters, and furnish information on conditions in the dimensions where they now exist. Extensive research into electronic communication with afterworld beings is being conducted on both sides of the Atlantic. In the USA, the American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomena and the Continuing Life Research organizations are in the forefront of these investigations.

    Simply put, the British investigative group’s contention is that these appearances of and contacts with “deceased” persons are manifestations of natural physical laws, the validity of which has been proven by recent and startling discoveries in mathematics and quantum physics. These are fields of study directly related to the structure and behavior of electrons, protons, neutrons, and other sub-atomic particles. Roll asserts that these new discoveries now fully vindicate the findings of early investigators of psychic phenomena such as Sir William Crookes, Sir Oliver Lodge, John Logie Baird, Arthur Findlay, Dr. Glen Hamilton, and many other prestigious scientific truth-seekers. After years of research, each of these experimenters declared unequivocally that life continues, endures, and advances on the next levels of existence.

    Baird, a television pioneer, and inventor of the infrared camera, contacted the “deceased” Thomas A. Edison through a medium, and a discussion of the infrared camera followed. Later, Baird made the following statement: “I have witnessed some very startling phenomena under circumstances which make trickery out of the question…I am convinced that discoveries of far-reaching importance remain waiting along these shadowy and discredited paths.”

    Fittingly, efforts in Britain are now underway to embark on a project to employ an infrared camera that will scientifically measure and record phenomena produced during experiments, including the videotaping of recently deceased persons. Many early investigators were given a very rough time by fellow scientists and the media. This holds especially true for Crookes. In 1874, he published the results of his four years of experiments dealing with a wide variety of unexplained phenomena. The report described many well-documented appearances, in the presence of Florence Cook, a materialization medium, of a spirit entity by the name of Katie King. Immediately upon publication of these findings, he became the target of infuriated detractors. After Crookes’ death in 1919, his enemies even went so far as to accuse him of being sexually obsessed with Cook, and collaborating with her in faking evidence of psychic phenomena. These cowardly attacks were directed at one of the most distinguished scientists of the nineteenth century, a Fellow of the Royal Society, later it’s President, and the discoverer of the chemical element Thallium.

    Although Crookes had become convinced of the reality of etheric communications long before beginning work with the medium (he began his research by investigating the numerous psychic phenomena associated with D. D. Hume), these unfounded and unproven allegations, many of them outright lies, have persisted into our own time. They have muddied the waters of paranormal investigation, and discouraged other scientists from following in Crookes’ footsteps.

    This is in spite of the reams of documentation of the many paranormal occurrences, including numerous appearances of the aforementioned discarnate entity, which occurred throughout Crookes’ investigation. Conclusive photographs are part of the record, and the authenticity of the phenomena has been verified by a number of independent witnesses. Some of these witnesses were themselves brilliant and esteemed scientists of the era, one of note being Cromwell F. Varley, an early researcher into ionization phenomena, and supervisor of the initial laying of the Atlantic Cable.

    Another investigator, Dr. Glen Hamilton, MD, of Winnipeg, Canada, a member of the Canadian Parliament and long-time psychic researcher, carried out later experiments which closely paralleled Crookes’, and achieved comparable results. His research sessions were also marked by manifestations of, and communication with discarnate entities. All of these occurred under closely-controlled, replicable, conditions, including a battery of fifteen flash cameras which photographed the apparitions from all angles simultaneously. Scientific observers who were present at these experiments included four other doctors, two lawyers, and two engineers. All of these witnesses stated unequivocally that “time after time, we saw dead persons materialize.” In well over a century, there has never been an explanation put forth for these hundreds of scientifically validated manifestations and communications being anything other than what the experimenters claimed them to be, that is, paranormal, or “psychic” phenomena.

    Roll balks at the term “psychic,” however, preferring instead to talk of “sub-atomic” phenomena. This he perceives as beginning with the separation of the human mind from its bodily shell, a natural and universal function that takes place at the end of physical life.

    The mind, retaining all of the memories, emotions, and intellect that it possessed on the material plane, then moves on to its next level of existence. This event occurs without regard for an individual’s religious belief and/or good behavior, or lack of the same, during his or her physical existence.

    The term “sub-atomic” refers to the many particles that compose the atom. There are over two hundred of these so far discovered, in addition to the generally well known electrons, protons, and neutrons. An electron is part of a family known as leptons. Its companion protons and neutrons are constructed of a similar sub-atomic group known as quarks. It has been postulated by a number of physicists that another sub-atomic particle, the neutrino, may account for ninety percent of the previously “missing” matter in the universe.

    All of these particles possess properties and exhibit behavior which remains inexplicable in the context of conventional physics, and there are strong indications that they may furnish an explanation for the numerous phenomena which are characteristic of the so-called “etheric body.” According to the group’s premise, both the human body and its etheric personality, the essence of human consciousness that endures after the physical ceases to operate, are composed of various sub-atomic particles. When the etheric portion detaches from the physical, in the event known as “death,” it remains energized by these same particles, which, in their new state, are now able to impart to it powers and abilities unknown, and even unimaginable, in our material world. Under certain conditions, discarnate entities manifesting on the material plane can appear and disappear at will, speak, respond, and even be grasped and held by those present at controlled experiments.

    In Roll’s view, there is nothing “supernatural” or “paranormal” about these appearances, which he sees as merely proving the ongoing existence of human consciousness and personality beyond the end of physical life. He blames certain religious denominations and national political leaders, pandering to their own interests by keeping the masses in ignorance, for this information on sub-atomic phenomena as it impacts upon survival not being more widely circulated and available to the general public. To aid Roll’s efforts in disseminating this evidence, an impressive array of scientists, physicists, and university professors have lent him support and made public their own research findings, all of which bear out the validity of his assertions.

    The late Professor Abdus Salam was a Nobel Laureate and Director of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, who was awarded an honorary knighthood. After reviewing the results of investigations by the savants, he gave Roll numerous monetary contributions from his own pocket, as well as a sizable grant from the Foundation, to help him spread the word of these exciting discoveries that verify the truth of ongoing life beyond the physical level.

    R. D. Pearson, BSc, another of Roll’s scientific collabarators, is a former university lecturer and engineer whose specialty is thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. He has written a book, “Intelligence Behind The Universe,” along with a companion booklet, “Colossus,” and an accompanying appendix of mathematical proof. These purport to explain the cosmic force that drives the phenomenom of continuing life, and mathematically back up the experiments of Crookes and Hamilton. Put quite simply, Pearson sees post-mortem survival of the human psyche as one of many functions of a multi-dimensional, multi-universal, sub-atomic grid matrix, on which all forms of life exist, and which sustains the etheric, as well as the physical consciousness of all living organisms. In this model, physical materializations of so-called “dead” persons, and even deceased animals, are but the temporary merging of two different frequencies, or wave-lengths, from two discrete levels of the grid, somewhat similar to when more than one radio broadcast is picked up on the same dial setting.

    Pearson furnishes full mathematical proof for his postulations, which may one day be looked upon as the key that finally unlocked the door to universal awareness of the reality of discarnate existence. One of the roadblocks to scientific acceptance of this “grid theory” (which is considerably more complex than the above simplified outline) has been the existence of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, parts of which seemed to negate Pearson’s hypothesis. However, Doctor Louis Essen, a Fellow of the Royal Society, and inventor of the atomic clock, informed Pearson that he has found significant errors in Einstein’s calculations.

    This recent discovery by Doctor Essen is in accord with a statement made by Einstein himself on his seventieth birthday: “There is not a single concept of which I am convinced that it will stand firm, and I am not sure if I was on the right track after all.” Over the past several years, other physicists and cosmologists worldwide have also come to the general agreement that “Einstein’s laws contain some flaws.” As a result of this consensus, they are examining certain discrepancies that have been found in Einstein’s work, and are formulating other premises to account for specific occurrences in quantum physics that cannot be explained by his theories.

    Pearson is confident that his “grid theory” corrects some of the discrepant data in Einstein’s works, and that it will withstand close examination and criticism by fellow physicists and cosmologists. In his book, he calls for seven experimental checks to be made which he is certain will return positive results and affirm his conclusions. Pearson has made several trips to Russia to present his theories. After extensive investigation and review, they were fully accepted by the physicists and scientists of that country, and Russian physics textbooks are in the process of being revised to reflect his new and exciting discoveries in sub-atomic physics. One of the strongest points in their favor is the fact that they have been shown not to conflict with the proven realities of quantum mechanics, as do many of Einstein’s theories.

    Sam Nicholls, MSc, an astrophysics graduate of Leeds University, and a fellow researcher into sub-atomic phenomena, concurs with Pearson’s findings. He has further postulated that so-called “deceased” entities, although composed of slightly different atomic components, exist in, and share the same space with, incarnate persons. He states:

    “Like the physical universe, their world would likewise be composed of sub-atomic particles, but these may be in much closer vibrational harmony with the all-pervading “grid” than their physical counterparts.”

    In one context of observation, this grid itself could be seen as the Creator-Sustainer of All Things for a number of parallel but separate universes. This premise does not, however, negate the possibility of an even higher, ultimate, Intelligence behind the grid.

    Another British astrophysicist and sub-atomic researcher, Michael Scott, BSc, a graduate of Edinburgh University, cites Niels Bohr’s “Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics” as seeming to actually require the existence of consciousness as a non-material extension to space-time. Scott makes the point that sub-atomic physics, as explored by him and other researchers worldwide, no longer views the building blocks of the universe as discrete particles of solid substance, but rather as vague, wavelike structures whose existence borders on the ethereal. Scott further states that:

    “The advancement of quantum physics has produced a description of reality which allows the existence of parallel universes. Composed of real substance, they would not interact directly with matter from our universe.”

    Professor Fred Alan Wolfe, although not a member of the British group, seems to concur with their findings in his book “Mind and the New Physics”. In it he states that “as fantastic as it may sound, the ‘new physics’ called quantum mechanics posits that there exists, side by side with this world, another world, a parallel universe, a duplicate copy that is somehow slightly different and yet the same. And not just two parallel worlds, but three, four, and even more…! In each of these universes, you, I, and all the others who live, have lived, will live, and will have ever lived, are alive.”

    These radical concepts of quantum physics and the ephemeral state of perceived reality as it impacts human existence beyond physical life have spurred attacks on the researchers from many quarters. These include certain members of the clergy, spiritualists, other scientists, and professional “skeptics.” Roll, as spokesman for the group, has drawn the wrath of religionists and spiritualists by his denial that belief in a supreme being is a necessary condition for next-world survival. His assertion that religious faith, or lack of it, is irrelevant in the context of continuing afterlife has placed him in direct conflict with the established churches, especially certain Christian denominations, and some of his fiercest foes are to be found in this camp.

    It seems particularly ironic that Christian sects are in the forefront of opposition to the sharing of these findings. The reported teachings of Jesus, whose doctrines are the foundation of their beliefs, are all based on the existence of another life beyond the present. Many thinking persons feel that these new discoveries in sub-atomic physics give credence to all those who, since the advent of human consciousness, have taught survival of death, and in addition, eliminate the necessity of belief through faith alone. This point is made by Pearson when he states,

    “People need to be made aware that their religious faiths have a base strongly supportable by modern physics. There is no longer any reason to think of science and religion as basically incompatible.”

    Roll expected strong opposition from the churches, but sees it as paradoxical that certain British spiritualist organizations have also joined in denouncing his views. The very core of spiritualism has always been a belief in the reality of contact with departed entities, and many survivalists of the past, especially the great historian and researcher Arthur Findlay, have made important and lasting contributions to research dealing with these contacts. Roll’s charges, which are backed by correspondence of record with several Spiritualist groups, are that their present day members have abandoned the rationalist philosophy of Findlay and other pioneers. They have instead tended to side with organized religion in asserting that belief in a monotheistic “God” is a vital part of the spiritualist creed. To refute the concept that faith in a supreme being is necessary for afterlife salvation from eternal punishment, Roll states unequivocally that life continues on in the next dimension without divine intervention or retribution, regardless of one’s religious beliefs or lack thereof. In addition to the findings of his colleagues, he bases this statement on personal communications with discarnate entities with whom he has spoken, and even held and embraced, including a “deceased” member of his immediate family.

    From information received through these contacts, he describes the afterworld as having many of the same conditions that are found on this physical plane. One significant difference seems to be that the environment experienced by each person is wholly dependent upon that individual’s behavior while incarnate. Punishment for wrongdoing, if any, is meted out to oneself by oneself, after undergoing a review of the past physical life. There are infinite and varying levels of existence, and advancement to higher planes is within the reach of every inhabitant of those realms. Roll outlines his philosophy in a quote from his booklet “The Physicists’ and Rationalists’ Case for Survival After the Death of Our Physical Bodies:”

    “Dying is as natural as being born; we all pass into the next world whether we like it or not. There is no special place reserved for Christians or members of any other sect. There are no social strata or racial barriers. We all graduate to the level we have earned by the development of our characters.”

    Conspicuously missing from this scenario is that favorite authority figure of religious fundamentalists, the “Big Daddy God,” a stern judge who summarily sentences some souls to eternal fire as punishment for alleged “sins”, while raising others to eternal glory as a reward for belief in “Him.” Mention of this deity is found nowhere in the numerous accounts by discarnate entities of life in their world. The Creator of the Universe, whoever or whatever he/she or it may be, seems to be a much more loving and compassionate being than literal interpreters of the Bible can conceive of. Opposition from certain establishment scientists to this view of after-death survival as a natural function of sub-atomic processes has also been strong. In spite of Lord Kelvin’s statement that “Science is bound by the everlasting law of honour to face fearlessly every problem which can fairly be presented to it,” some scientists have refused to even look at Pearson’s data, or review the hypotheses of the other researchers.

    Adrian Berry, Science Correspondent of the “Daily Telegraph,” has framed this attitude perfectly by stating in print that

    “few subjects more infuriate scientists than claims of paranormal phenomena, because, if confirmed, the whole fabric of science would be threatened.”

    Although obviously not Berry’s intention, these words make a crucial point for the embattled researchers.

    Roll’s response to Berry is that “nothing can threaten true science, which in essence is the unceasing search for knowledge, and that observed and verifiable facts call for an explanation of their cause, no matter how uncomfortable the eventual solution may be for it’s discoverers.” He equates such reluctance to explore new vistas with past suppression of uncomfortable ideas and discoveries, as when the brilliant researcher Giordano Bruno was murdered by the Catholic Church for daring to assert that “There are many suns, with many planets circling them. The priests and so-called “scientists” of Galileo’s day refused to look through his telescope, because of fear that what they might observe would overturn their cherished and antiquated beliefs.

    Even the ubiquitous James “The Amazing” Randi, erstwhile magician and member of the “Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal,” (although he has been forced to resign from this organization due to legal problems stemming from character defamation suits brought against him) has taken it upon himself to attack the premise of scientific verification of continuing post-mortem existence. His nose was figuratively bloodied during an encounter with Sam Nicholls, however, when the astrophysicist, as a member of the audience of a television show, stood up and publicly challenged Randi’s assertions. The magician quickly ordered the cameras of Granada Television Studio switched off before they could record Nicholls’ words.

    Since there is no separation of church and state in England, religious opposition there has, until very recently, made it difficult for Roll to air his findings and those of his colleagues. As an example of this church-state integration, the law demands that an “act of Christian worship” be performed daily in every school throughout the land!

    Also, British laws have not always favored Roll’s attempts to disseminate his views in the media. One example of this mental harassment is an incident which would be unimaginable in the USA. Because of a clause in the Broadcasting Act, the host of a radio show on which Roll appeared and championed the existence of subatomic phenomena as a natural law, while denying it’s divine origin, was threatened with being reported to the IBA, (the British counterpart of the Federal Communications Commission) if Roll ever again appeared on his show. The courageous broadcaster was not intimidated, and his publicizing of the threat resulted in increased demand by listeners for more information on the subject, which led to Roll ultimately being invited back on the air without fear of sanctions. These and other restrictions have worked as deterrents to the free dissemination of information on sub-atomic phenomena, but the situation is rapidly changing.

    Lately, likely due to public pressure, Roll has been allowed to air his views more freely, and has been appearing on a series of radio broadcasts, where he was able to reveal the far-reaching discoveries of his colleagues with a minimum of restrictions. He also gives numerous lectures throughout the UK and in Europe, and recently formed the Campaign for Philosophical Freedom to further disseminate the truth about ongoing life in etheric realms. As word of these exciting and factual affirmations of heretofore only hoped-for afterlife existence spreads, the public is showing its strong interest in life after death by ever-increasing attendance at lectures and programs given by Roll and his associates. They are demanding more information, as well as the lowering of all remaining barriers to free and open discussion of the matter. In future years, it is likely that the present times will be looked back upon as the dawning of a new Renaissance in humankind’s perception of both the physical and non-physical worlds alike.

    A quote from Arthur Schopenhauer describes the current situation in the study of sub-atomic physics as it relates to ongoing life now being at the second stage, and nearing the third:

    “Any unexplained phenomenon passes through three stages before the reality of it is accepted:
    During the first stage it is considered laughable.
    During the second stage, it is adamantly opposed.
    Finally, during the third stage, it is accepted as self-evident.”
    – After Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 – 1860)

    Yeah, I know. The title screams for explanation. Instead of torturing you with a long drawn out introduction, I’ll let you just dive right in, head first.

    Me: Well, I’ll follow that up with a much simpler question. Who are we? (This is right after I asked how we could translate lessons, knowledge and life experiences into concrete results.)

    Jamie laughs.

    Erik: Oh, yeah, because it’s so easy.

    Me: Well, these blog members have inquiring minds and they want to know. And so do I.

    (Long pause)

    Erik: Okay, simple?

    Jamie listens.

    Jamie (to Erik): Kindergarten level? Sure.

    Erik: We, as humans—that’s what you’re asking, right?

    Me: I guess. Well, I don’t know. Give me the two-part answer.

    Erik: Yeah, that’s totally a twofold answer. We, as humans, are souls from the greater Source having experiences so that we can bring back those experiences to create a larger understanding of life.

    Me: Now, is there a difference between experiencing and learning? There’s a difference, right?

    Erik: No, there’s really no learning on Earth. It’s just kind of remembering.

    Me: Ah, remembering! So, we’re not here to learn. We’re here to experience so we can remember who and what we are.

    Erik: Yeah.

    Me: Interesting.

    Erik: And we, as souls—

    Jamie laughs at his answer.

    Erik: This is just going to fuck people up if I tell them that there is no beginning. It always does.

    Me: Yeah. That’s okay; they’re used to that. We’re all already fucked up, so…

    Erik: Ah, thank god! Maybe that’s why the site works so well.

    Me: You know I’m just kidding, right Erik?

    Erik: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You know, we’re used to looking at life and creation as having a beginning and an end. We watch birth, and we watch death, and this is the only viewpoint that we’re getting on what life is. This is really just so one-sided and narrow-minded. As spirits, we look at what our spirit life is: It’s multi-leveled, it’s multi-f—

    Me: Faceted?

    Jamie (with surprise): He really just said that!

    Me (in jest): Wow! Such a big word for a little boy!

    Jamie (to Erik): Yeah, it doesn’t really sound like you, Erik.

    Erik: I don’t want to piss the crowd off. I gotta give them a teaser of intelligence every once in a while.

    We all giggle. Except Erik. Guys laugh; they don’t giggle.

    Jamie (still giggling): He says as humans, we’re pigeon-toed runners. Do you remember that?

    Me: What?

    Jamie: God, I told myself I would remember that joke when I heard it, but I’d forgotten it until just now.

    Me: What is it? A pigeon-toed runner?

    Erik: Yeah, a pigeon-toed runner. We step on our own feet.

    Jamie: I just thought that was a funny visual he gave me.

    (Not sure what this has to do with the topic, but I’ll persevere somehow.)

    Jamie: I’m sorry. He just totally got off track.

    (No duh. And I thought it was just me and that shriveled little thing that used to be a brain.)

    Erik: When we look at our spiritual life, you know, it’s so many layers, we don’t have a beginning and we don’t have an end. It’s just like looking at a sphere. There are many points, many moments—in fact an infinite amount of moments—that create this sphere creating our soul, and even though—

    Me (in a worried tone): Fear? Did you say fear?

    (Damn, not only is my brain shriveled, my ears are kaput, too.)

    Jamie (with the emphasis appropriate for an elderly demented lady. Sigh.): Sphere. What he shows me is like one of those little bouncy balls.

    Me (slightly embarrassed, but chuckling none the less): Okay, okay. Got it.

    Jamie (giggling): You’d think it’d be more fancy than that, but it’s not!

    Jamie and I laugh.

    Jamie: YOU ARE A BOUNCY BALL!

    Erik chuckles at our silliness.

    Erik: Even though that sphere is seen as being an individual, it is actually a speck or a moment or an experience in a larger sphere. And that larger sphere is Life Force, God Source, Prime Source, whatever the fuck you wanna call it. It’s the thread that’s tying all of this soul energy together.

    (Pause as Jamie listens.)

    Erik: And it’s not just human energy and plant energy and animal energy. It’s alien energy, universal energy. You know, there’s so much more to it. We’re kinda selling ourselves short if we really think our happy Caucasian male god only reigns over the humans.

    Erik lets out a hearty laugh.

    Me: Oh god, yeah.

    Erik: You know, I hate to see us sell ourselves short. There’s so much more there.

    Jamie bursts out giggling.

    Me: What’s going on?

    Jamie: I’m just joking with him. I said, “So, Prime Source, Life Source, Life Force, whatever you were saying is just a big bouncy ball?” He said, “Yep!”

    Me: Too funny. Well, I guess that’s his way of dumbing it down for us peons. Us huuuumans.

    Erik: Well, there’s something else I’d also like to say: it’s not associated to our solar system or our Earth. You know, it’s a much bigger spread of a thread through space.

    Me: Yeah. Okay.

    Erik: I just don’t want people to think we’re localized.

    Me: We’re infinite.

    Jamie: Shebing, shebang, shebang. I’m trying to make some funny sounds.

    Me: Don’t even try! Please, Jamie.

    Jamie (giggling): My accuracy rate is poor right now.

    Me: Geez, I can’t take you anywhere. Don’t embarrass yourself, girl. That’s my job. I’m the queen of self-embarrassment.

    For newcomers, this is the substitute teacher in for Elisa on her day off.

    Today the first day of July starts the second half of 2012. We ask Erik to step up to his internet pulpit (and suggest no grabbing of it or anything else, as a break for Jamie!) How long that might last, well….who knows? The intent is golden… “time” is relative and hope springs eternal. The substitute teacher has no lesson plan this week, so mass will be as the sermoners decide. As usual, ST = substitute teacher, E = Erik, C = The Committee.

    ST:       Erik, 2012 is the big year and we’re halfway though; what’s in store?

    E:         Another half year mostly. The world ain’t gonna end and George Carlin will still be here, no matter what he says.

    ST:       What’s happening to us over the next six months?

    E:         We’re going to begin to see the new age on Earth, lots of changes, some big for some people and some not so big for some people. All that will start.

    ST:       You know everybody wants to know what date and time this is going to happen and that’s going to happen. Can we know?

    E:         No, because the days aren’t known. The plan of events is, but the moment on Earth is random, whatever time it happens to be on the date, that’s when it happens.

    ST:       Can you explain that in more detail?

    E:         Throw a ball at a spinning disco mirror chandelier; where’s it gonna hit? Does it matter? You know it’s gonna hit if it’s aimed right. Nobody runs around with watches timing shit; the people who need to be certain places when something happens are there. Time gets slowed down or sped up for ‘em so it’s all coordinated. What time it is on Earth doesn’t make a difference; what’s important is not what Timex says.

    ST:       Big things seem to be changing all the time, Greek and European economies, US medical insurance laws, political scandal involving the US administration and stuff like that. Are these things part of it?

    E:         Yes, weather stuff, too. No purple rain or pink snow’s gonna fall. The weather and natural events are all things that happen anyway, except the pattern will emerge after a while. Some people will see it, some won’t for a while. It’s all a part of what’s going on.

    ST:       Should we be worried?

    E:         If the events don’t affect you, no. Look at the news, sure, but don’t get hot over it, man. Most of what’s the system now is gonna change anyway.

    ST:       The “system” you said; what systems?

    E:         Government, education, business and stuff like that. You’ll have all this, but it’s gonna change and pretty quick, it’ll have to. Some people are gonna be disappointed and a lot of people are gonna be really surprised. Who you thought was bad maybe was a mix of good and bad, same thing for the good person. A lot of people are gonna see things weren’t like what they thought.

    ST:       Give us a few examples for the things you mentioned; what changes can you describe?

    E:         Government’s gonna be less of an influence, play less of a role. The idea government action is key to causing problems or solving them will go away because governments aren’t going to be able to help or hurt things. What’s coming is new and doesn’t fit what the government’s been set up to do. Education will be less administration; more teachers and students. Teacher volunteer work is coming back; teachers as career employees will be less and less. Business will change the most, ‘cause all the stuff y’all buy and sell will be less and less. Ya ain’t gonna be importing food from across the world or sending TV sets and appliances someplace else nearly like now. It’ll be a lot less business activity. More family time, friend time.

    ST:       Disasters that sink continents? Earth’s poles reversed? Hidden planets showing up? Green martians from outer space?

    E:         None of that shit. Some stuff’ll be going on, and some of it’s gonna scare people, but it ain’t the end. It’s a phase.

    ST:       You know we had some good entries this past week on abusers, abuse victims and estranged children and many touching, emotional, heartfelt comments. Your humble substitute teacher mentioned these would be covered in today’s sermon, and we’d like The Committee’s and your input on what we all believe are meaningful subjects.

    E:         Damned right, just what I was saying about family time. By the way, Jamie you know I love you just as much as the shock look you put on! These things are what’s important; this is what life on Earth is about, mostly, and other stuff just feeds into it.

    C:         Indeed we say and allow us to tell you all, we have a larger than heretofore committee this visit. More of our friends have come to help out, nicknamed Yoda by some readers. Great smiles we wear as we think of this movie character as representation of us. This day please think of a Yoda Committee, we this costume enjoy, we do.

    ST:       Yoda Committee?

    E:         Ya gotta see this crowd! It would make the Star Wars bar scene look like British House of Commons. Better behaved though, no communication with language, less interruptions!

    C:         Indeed, please all hear your thoughts. Listen to the words you do not hear; hear the messages not spoken. All of your Angels to you they speak. They say much of great value. Great wealth there is given.

    ST:       Esteemed Yoda Committee, can you expand on this past week’s discussion of abuse and abusers?

    C:         Erik’s arrows point accurately; there is truth in his descriptions. We must say, we felt the emotion of thinking a young child would shoulder blame, hold fault or responsibility for this treatment. Your life there shows the child as that alone, as it is intended. The soul of all is far more than the body and role seen, played out and lived. There is great strength in the young person subject to such behavior; such force, resilience and power as a human cannot know, for you are human. Just human for this moment and inside what you know, you know what is wrong with this and so learn from it you all do. Indeed the pain of this lesson is unbearable in many cases, and we do say, there is comfort given not seen, that cannot be seen. You all learn a great compassion and understanding from it.  We shall, as he has suggested and given permission to mention, describe your great Erik as a good example. He served as a teacher to many who needed his strength; a police officer who will know the error, the others whom he knew who have now thought deeply of their interactions. Had Erik not crossed their paths, how would they have come to experience their own selves and learn of what churns inside them to then send it out, unaware it came from inside their thoughts?

    E:         I had plans for many and met them.

    ST:       You mentioned some time ago, your family was, as much as anything, your platform?

    E:         The best possible. All great trees grow from solid roots, my growth came from the best.

    C:         The interaction of abuser and abused builds a framework of understanding. The abuser will, as planned, observe the encounter, step back into the role and review it from this point as the provider of the behavior. Then, with knowledge that damage was done, the abuser will experience what the object of behavior felt, knowing the pain and hurt was caused deliberately. The abuser will be again in the steps that led to the place of damage and see where opportunities to steer away were not taken. The pain felt as the abuser knows what is to come and what was done by the abuser’s own hand is excruciating to a level and degree your life does not know, so terrible it is. We know humanity’s lesson is forgiveness and how difficult this reaction is; it is the difficulty of reaction that so much learning supplies to your soul. The need to carry the hurt need not be; for all the challenges of organized religions there are, as you describe them in the density of Earth dimensions, jewels of wisdom in them are to be found. The concept of forgiveness is the great jewel of value to your souls. To turn the other cheek, as is said, requires great strength. The attack will be reviewed and relived by the attacker and so strong will be the twist and pain of the soul as this happens that no human words do to this give service.

    Your souls we all see; the person you know not, aboard the train or the plane travelling quietly is as we see all of you. You yet on Earth, who would observe such traveler, know the person is far more than the hairstyle, necktie, suitcase or luggage even though this is all you can see. We see you all on Earth in this way, as you see yourselves and we also see into you, who you REALLY are, far beyond the life circumstances, the suit of clothes, if you please, into which you have travelled to live a time on Earth. The plan, the hurt, the pain, the joy and the review of all things of your life are to be seen by you again as you have chosen. All that you see and live, all of these things are as real as anything in the universe. They are not an illusion but for the idea that what is around you is all there really is. THIS is the illusion, that reality for you is complete in what you can see and touch; it is complete it is, inside the temporary veil of your choosing and visit there. The illusion is finality and separation, that what not seen by humans is not to be seen by humans, yet it is.

    The abuse, the participants, the objects and perpetrators, all a great challenge they assume; to confront, have opportunity to change course, to refuse the pain, to resist the urge, to stand ground, to follow though, to suffer and all of it, all the outcomes of your free will, all to be reviewed and seen. It is with great compassion we all embrace the abuser as the act is seen, felt and reviewed for benefit. The experience of the pain with understanding of the choice to inflict it, this is so tough and horrible a thing of permanence that the object, the victim must be a truly compassionate soul to know how the review will be felt. Great and old souls are those who choose this route and it is of great service to enlightenment they assume this burden.

    To execute a murderer as punishment we see as so pointless and we do know one great leap forward humanity will soon take is the understanding of the murderer’s experience. There is no punishment of this thing so horrible, and there is no purpose to doing it. Freedom of choice and ability to change course have often permitted this to be recognized and allow such killers to be treated differently; know that what awaits is not what humanity can see. Separation of a killer is the better route, for the killer not but for you who would see the effect of the act. Execution in one way sets free the soul of a murderer; where humanity need not end a life, it should not.

    ST:       What of estranged children?

    C:         Many examples of this there are, and varied are reasons. This will soon not be.

    E:         It’s fucked up, for everybody. Maybe it has to happen sometimes, but it’s still, what it is.

    ST:       Fucked up?

    E:         Yup.

    C:         There is no complete answer to this; many circumstances have led to this in some families where in others, no such breakdown would take place. Circumstances of life on Earth will bring some families back together; many have this in their plan. Separations of this way will not be common.

    ST:       Yoda Committee, can you give us your input in general about what we need to know now?

    C:         As wealth seems to decline, remember poverty is where perception and circumstance cross paths. A reliable, inexpensive bicycle is more valuable than a car missing a wheel. The cyclist could be considered less wealthy than the owner of the car but when abruptly faced with the need to travel a good distance urgently, perceived wealth is of what value? This will come to face you all more often in the coming months and years. Circumstance will lead to beliefs of wealth lost; as you feel this, can you see what you might gain? “A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse” will bear relevance again for some.

    Speak well of your foes as you see them flounder, as reunions with them you will face. Fall easily, as you need not crash when tripped. Look up for guidance and let not your hopes obscure those of others who might disagree with yours. The same ship you all occupy, as you chose to do. Poke not a hole under that foe to believe you shall sink not; water its level always finds. No burden you cannot bear will come about; great joy and fascination will also be offered and happy you can be with them.

    You will all soon set sail in new directions; look not back with longing, look forward with appreciation for what is now behind you; there is no wrong in the past; the richness of experience is great for every human being, every one of you. There is no grade or qualification to be earned and compared and used to rank, classify and judge, so do not. Completion is a great accomplishment for all and all of you completion shall have. Bear witness to a great society now to be changed, its lessons to be the enrichment of you all, from this moment. Good tidings and blessings.”

    Thanks, my dear Channeling Erik family members, for your prayers. They seem to be working. I hope you keep sending them our way. Love you.

    Me: Okay, how much of the personality and self-identity is influenced by the physiology and chemistry of our brain? Are thoughts, decisions and movements and acts of free will controlled by the microscopic activity in our brains, determined by genetics, dyes, drugs and other things? In other words, how much of the personality is brain and how much is soul?

    Erik: That’s really being asked?

    Me: Yeah.

    Erik: Because all you have to do is slow down enough to know. The soul is pretty much the energetic computer motherboard and it’s using the brain as a computer. Emotions drive us; emotions create our reactions; thoughts create the way we react to a situation, which can build character. You know, people want to get down to the source of what is soul and what is brain?

    Me: Um hm.

    Erik: Well, soul is the electricity and brain is the computer.

    Me: Oh, I like that analogy. Okay, one more. Gifted mediums like Jamie, what’s different about her? Is it something physical? Is it something like a spiritual contract? Do some of them have a history in past lives of having the same gift?

    Erik: It’s definitely a contract. They agree to come in and do this kind of work. Since you’re pointing Jamie out, she’s had this ability in other lives too.

    Jamie (to Erik): You see, I knew that, too! And I’ve found out in past life regressions that I’ve had a similar pattern. For me, it ran through my family, so it was partly hereditary.

    Me: Oh, wow!

    Jamie: And I would always have parents that would accept my gifts and enhance them instead of being this “drop-in.”

    Erik: It’s like if you dropped into a family and you’re totally psychic and gifted and nobody believes you—thinks you’re just fucked up in the head lot of those people end up on the top floor.

    Me: Huh?

    Erik: Psychiatric ward.

    Me: Oh! So, genetically speaking, Jamie, you and your ancestors probably influenced the genetics, but it’s mostly about, “Hey, you guys, I want you to be my parents for awhile, because I have this gift that you have to nurture. Is it that sort of thing?

    Erik: Exactly.

    Be sure to join our new Channeling Erik group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/ChannelingErik/ that Ashley so graciously constructed! Thanks Ash! Also, friend Erik and me on Facebook if you haven’t already.

    Have a great weekend!

    I want to express my pride and gratitude for the Channeling Erik family for rallying in support of our dear Lynette. I’m sure you’ll continue to keep her in your prayers, sending her the healing energy she needs. I met her in Atlanta during the first CE event, and she’s such a gentle and loving soul.

    And now, here’s a question from a blog member: Where did our Erik begin?

    Me: Here’s another question: Do you know how you began, Erik?

    Erik: Began this journey or began this life?

    Me: I’m not sure what he’s asking. I think he’s wondering if you recall how you began your entire journey as the personality known as Erik. I think that’s it. Or is there even a beginning? Since we see ourselves as linear in that we are born and then we live and ultimately we die, we assume everything has a beginning. Maybe that’s a misconception.

    Erik: Oh, so like The Big Bang?

    Me: I guess? The Big Erik Bang.

    (Pause as Jamie listens to Erik)

    Jamie (giggling): Erik! (to me) He makes a sexual joke!

    Me: Typical.

    Jamie: About the Big Bang.

    Me: I can only imagine. The Big Gang Bang?

    Jamie (grateful that I rescued her from having to repeat his words): Yes, you got it right.

    Erik: That’s how life starts. If the guy wants to talk about the beginning of creation, I don’t think I’m the one for it. I just don’t know right now, but I think it’s probably safe to assume consciousness is a sentient energy that has always been. No start, no end. And that makes sense since they’re no time here.

    Me: Do you think there’s an Erik that’s stuck on a lower plane that needs help?

    Erik: Nope.

    (Jamie laughs)

    Me: And I guess the biggest question I have is this: Does he even care about these things? I mean, when we leave this plane, do we actively pursue these questions, or do we just get thrown into the eternal present where all this stuff becomes irrelevant? I think you already answered that. You really don’t care.

    Erik: Yeah. It makes no difference. By the way, I was that Erik that needed help.

    Me: I know, Sweetie. I figured as much!

    The Erik Who Needed Help

    For those who have questions about their own life or health or wish to contact a deceased loved ones, I think Jamie and Erik may still have a few spots left for the next conference call on February 16th. This will be a very small group–only 10 people. To reserve your spot, go to https://withloveandlight.com/shop/channeling-erik-call-out-216-115-215-pm-est/

    Also, there’s still time to sign up for the Channeling Erik Weekend of Enlightenment Austin event. I can’t wait to meet everyone! Register at https://withloveandlight.com/shop/channeling-erik-weekend-of-enlightenment-austin-tx-32-34/  The hotel link with special rates is at http://doubletree.hilton.com/en/dt/groups/personalized/A/AUSLNDT-CEW-20120228/index.jhtml?WT.mc_id=POG

    Five Reasons You Won’t Die

    Robert Lanza, M.D.

    Scientist, Theoretician

    We’ve been taught we’re just a collection of cells, and that we die when our bodies wear out. End of story. I’ve written textbooks showing how cells can be engineered into virtually all the tissues and organs of the human body. But a long list of scientific experiments suggests our belief in death is based on a false premise, that the world exists independent of us − the great observer.

    Here are five reasons you won’t die.

    Reason One. You’re not an object, you’re a special being. According to biocentrism, nothing could exist without consciousness. Remember you can’t see through the bone surrounding your brain. Space and time aren’t objects, but rather the tools our mind uses to weave everything together.

    “It will remain remarkable,” said Eugene Wigner, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1963 “in whatever way our future concepts may develop, that the very study of the external world led to the conclusion that the content of the consciousness is an ultimate reality.”

    Consider the uncertainty principle, one of the most famous and important aspects of quantum mechanics. Experiments confirm it’s built into the fabric of reality, but it only makes sense from a biocentric perspective. If there’s really a world out there with particles just bouncing around, then we should be able to measure all their properties. But we can’t. Why should it matter to a particle what you decide to measure? Consider the double-slit experiment: if one “watches” a subatomic particle or a bit of light pass through slits on a barrier, it behaves like a particle and creates solid-looking hits behind the individual slits on the final barrier that measures the impacts. Like a tiny bullet, it logically passes through one or the other hole. But if the scientists do not observe the trajectory of the particle, then it exhibits the behavior of waves that allow it pass through both holes at the same time. Why does our observation change what happens? Answer: Because reality is a process that requires our consciousness.

    The two-slit experiment is an example of quantum effects, but experiments involving Buckyballs and KHCO3 crystals show that observer-dependent behavior extends into the world of ordinary human-scale objects. In fact, researchers recently showed (Nature 2009) that pairs of ions could be coaxed to entangle so their physical properties remained bound together even when separated by large distances, as if there was no space or time between them. Why? Because space and time aren’t hard, cold objects. They’re merely tools of our understanding.

    Death doesn’t exist in a timeless, spaceless world. After the death of his old friend, Albert Einstein said “Now Besso has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us…know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” In truth, your mind transcends space and time.

    Reason Two. Conservation of energy is a fundamental axiom of science. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can’t be created or destroyed. It can only change forms. Although bodies self-destruct, the “me” feeling is just a 20-watt cloud of energy in your head. But this energy doesn’t go away at death. A few years ago scientists showed they could retroactively change s…. Particles had to “decide” how to behave when they passed a fork in an apparatus. Later on, the experimenter could flip a switch. The results showed that what the observer decided at that point determined how the particle behaved at the fork in the past.

    Think of the 20-watts of energy as simply powering a projector. Whether you flip a switch in an experiment on or off, it’s still the same battery responsible for the projection. Like in the two-slit experiment, you collapse physical reality. At death, this energy doesn’t just dissipate into the environment as the old mechanical worldview suggests. It has no reality independent of you. As Einstein’s esteemed colleague John Wheeler stated “No phenomenon is a real phenomenon until it is an observed phenomenon.” Each person creates their own sphere of reality – we carry space and time around with us like turtles with shells. Thus, there is no absolute self-existing matrix in which energy just dissipates.

    Reason Three. Although we generally reject parallel universes as fiction, there’s more than a morsel of scientific truth to this genre. A well-known aspect of quantum physics is that observations can’t be predicted absolutely. Instead, there’s a range of possible observations each with a different probability. One mainstream explanation is the ‘many-worlds’ interpretation, which states that each of these possible observations corresponds to a different universe (the ‘multiverse’). There are an infinite number of universes (including our universe), which together comprise all of physical reality. Everything that can possibly happen occurs in some universe. Death doesn’t exist in any real sense in these scenarios. All possible universes exist simultaneously, regardless of what happens in any of them. Like flipping the switch in the experiment above, you’re the agent who experiences them.

    Reason Four. You will live on through your children, friends, and all who you touch during your life, not only as part of them, but through the histories you collapse with every action you take. “According to quantum physics,” said theoretical physicists Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow, “the past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.” There’s more uncertainty in bio-physical systems than anyone ever imagined. Reality isn’t fully determined until we actually investigate (like in the Schrödinger’s cat experiment). There are whole areas of history you determine during your life. When you interact with someone, you collapse more and more reality (that is, the spatio-temporal events that define your consciousness). When you’re gone, your presence will continue like a ghost puppeteer in the universes of those you know.

    Reason Five. It’s not an accident that you happen to have the fortune of being alive now on the top of all infinity. Although it could be a one-in-a-jillion chance, perhaps it’s not just dumb luck, but rather must be that way. While you’ll eventually exit this reality, you, the observer, will forever continue to collapse more and more ‘nows.’ Your consciousness will always be in the present — balanced between the infinite past and the indefinite future — moving intermittently between realities along the edge of time, having new adventures and meeting new (and rejoining old) friends.

    “Biocentrism” (BenBella Books) lays out Lanza’s theory of everything.

    Blog member, Su, shared this wonderful video of April Crawford, trance channeling Veronica on questions about what the afterlife is like. It’s so aligned with what Erik and other spirits have said.

    Channeling Transcript

    Me: Okay, here’s a question from one of the blog members. What’s the association between the soul, the body and the mind?

    Erik: Well, that could be taken a few ways. Do they mean the exact physical association or the energetic association?

    Me: Hmm. I don’t know, physical maybe? Or both?

    Jamie laughs hard at Erik!

    Jamie (to Erik, still laughing): Oh really? That’s not a joke, Erik?

    She continues to laugh a while until she finally catches her breath enough to tell me what he said.

    Erik: It’s the belly button.

    Me: Oh, okay!

    Jamie: I was like, ‘What?’

    Me (chuckling): Ah, so that’s why you have to contemplate your navel! It’s all coming together now! The key to all the answers in the universe come right down to the belly button!

    Erik (laughing): Well, that’s what kids like to believe, right? Everything is connected to the navel; the umbilical cord comes from it. That’s the first source of nourishment, that’s where the womb, the sacral chakra, Hara, the pocket of energy sits.

    Me: Oh!

    Erik: The Kundalini sitting right behind it is the base of the soul.

    Me (teasing): Ah, so THAT’S why it so important to clean the lint out of our belly buttons from time to time.

    Erik: Bingo! Hey, Mom, you know in Asian cultures they won’t put their finger in their belly button.

    Me: Really?

    Erik: Yeah, they’ll clean it out when they need to, but they don’t dig in their belly button, because they consider that something that might block the chakra and create something like stomach problems. There’s old school knowledge to it that’s thousands of years old that the belly is sacred.

    Me: Wow.

    Erik: So if I had to point to any place in the body, it wouldn’t be the brain. The brain is like—

    Jamie laughs hard again.

    Erik The brain is like the storage box that you rent that gets dropped off in your driveway. You put shit in it. It’s still on your property, and you’re storing nice things in there, but it doesn’t run the whole show.

    Me: Oh, okay.

    Jamie: Erik! So he’s saying if he had to point to a physical place, it’d be the belly of the body.

    Me: Okay. What about the energetic association of the soul within the body and mind?

    Erik: Energy exchange between body, mind and soul, this happens at every level, in every cell. Energy exchange of all three happens consistently throughout. It’s not like energy is kinda leaking out bits, traveling down an artery or vein and feeding different areas. It encompasses the entire being from the intracellular level up.

    Me: So the energetic connection is pervasive between the three?

    Erik: Yeah, cuz remember, it’s ALL energy. Everything is energy. The mind, the body and the soul..

    Me: You make it sound so very easy, Sweetie!

    Erik: It really is, Mom. Everything is very simple, really. It just requires a different way of looking at things.  

    Me: Very cool, my darling genius.
