About Erik Medus

How I came to know Erik

All though I have been communicating with spirit since I was young,

I was very doubtful that it was actually spirit as my parents told me it

was my imagination.  Since I can remember, spirit has been present

- Trying to sleep as a young child was a task, as I closed my eyes, I

could feel, hear and sense them. When I closed my eyes, I could see

colors and patterns and faces. Little did I know, this was energy.. Spirit

energy.  I would lie on my tummy, cover my head with my pillow and

then cover the pillow with the blankets.. I thought that would make

them go away... Here I am some 45+ years later and thankfully, they

haven't gone away! 


I've been attracted to everything spiritual for as long as I can remember

 -  books, movies, EVP's, and conmmunicating with the other side

fascinates me. 

Finding Erik, or perhaps I should say... Erik finding me, has opened up my abilities

to communicate with the other side.  I have found an incredible community of like

minded folks who are open and encourage the belief that we can all communicate

with Spirit. The Channeling Erik website/blog/Facebook page has given me the

opportunity to find a whole new family who I can openly discuss things the rest

of the world may not be ready to comprehend.  Erik and Elisa have given me the

forum to develop and share my gifts with the rest of the world with love and confidence. 

I was watching a TED talk on YouTube with Anita Moorjani (I recommend her book and

TED talk) and there on the side bar were the "you may also like these videos" was Jamie

Butler's interview with Erik.. Erik Medhus describes his own death... Those Eyes...

I think, hmph... now THAT'S got to be one thought provoking video. The video above

that was Jamie's interview with Robin Williams, who is by far one of my favorite people on

both sides of the veil. I proceeded to watch Anita discuss how we all have the ability to heal ourselves.

I HAD to go back to watch the Robin Williams interview, it's fascinating to see his personality come through this beautiful and clear channel.. HOW DOES SHE DO THAT??? Again, there on the side bar, I saw a picture of Erik with the Caption, Erik describing  his own death.


Those piercing eyes.     They got to me.    They watched me during the Robin Williams interview


OK, OK, OK, I GET IT, I'm supposed to watch!!!!!


Once I did.. I was hooked from that day forward.

As Quoted from the Channelling Erik blog:


"Erik Rune Medhus, my 20 year old son, took his own life on October 6, 2009. Since that sad and tragic day, an overwhelming sense of grief and despair propelled me into a search for answers. Answers that would provide me and others with comfort and hope. Some of those answers came from the many books I bought, but many came from an unexpected source…Erik, himself. Through dreams, visitations and channeling, he describes what happens during the death process, what the afterlife is like, what he does with his time there, what it feels like to be a free soul, the nature of thought and reality, the meaning of life and the human experience, as well as other matters. If you fear your own mortality, if you grieve over the loss of a loved one, or if you yearn to know the answers to these questions and more, please join me in this journey to enlightenment.

Erik would be the first to admit that he is no Oracle of Delphi. He does not claim to be a Dalai Lama, the Great Messiah, a mountaintop guru, or even a wise sage. No, he is a flawed human being who, like many of us, has battled his own dragons both inward and outward. He has stumbled and failed time and time again. But perhaps because of his foibles, he has a deep understanding of the human experience. He knows what it’s like to be neck deep in a foxhole of misery clawing desperately in the mud to pull himself out. He also knows what it’s like to feel hopelessness, to give up, to believe that life is not worth the pain, the trouble and the setbacks. But these attributes, these trials and tribulations offer another type of wisdom. One we can relate to in the shadow of our own hardships. That said, however young, flawed and imperfect, Erik is a voice worth hearing. He is one of us." Written by Elisa Medus



About Elisa Medhus:


is a physician and mother of five who has practiced internal medicine for over thirty years. She is the author of three award-winning parenting books and has lectured on parenting for schools, parent groups, and corporations. After the death of her twenty-year-old son Erik, Dr. Medhus began journaling her grief in her blog A strong believer in science, she formerly viewed spiritual matters with skepticism. Once Erik began to communicate with family, friends, and blog members, her entire paradigm shifted. After devouring books on the quantum physics explaining the science behind spirituality, Dr. Medhus began her journey towards spiritual understanding and belief. Why I created this blog/book: After my son, Erik, took his life, the pain was unbearable. But that pain was compounded by the fact that I was raised by two atheists. I didn’t really have a belief system about life after death. Plus, as a physician, my educational background is heavily steeped in science, so for something to be real, I had to perceive it with my five senses—or so I thought. Since I heal best when I help others, I decided to vent my pain by creating a safe and loving community where other’s who grieve could share their pain as well. Channeling Erik was born. But shortly after, Erik began pranking and visiting blog members. The membership grew exponentially and extended globally. What I’ve discovered during my journey is that people yearn for answers. Seventy-eight million baby boomers are grappling with their own mortality. "
