Energy Formulas and some thoughts on “My Son and the Afterlife”

One of the books I’ve been reading this summer is My Son and the Afterlife: Conversations from the Other Side by Elisa Medhus, MD. If you’ve ever visited ChannelingErik.com, that’s Elisa. Much of the book comes from the site, which she started not only to work through her grieving, but to serve as a place to share the channeled messages that she received from her son Erik, who committed suicide in 2009. These channeled messages come mostly from Erik’s spirit communicator (medium), Jamie Butler

I was introduced to ChannelingErik.com two or three years ago, and was immediately blown away and overwhelmed with the wealth of information and transcribed sessions between Elisa, Jamie, and Erik. In fact, one of my very first blog posts featured the site. For many, the site is controversial, and you’ll find several sites expressing skeptical opinions about it all. Elisa herself claims to have gone from skeptic to believer because of this whole journey. If you know me, you know I can’t NOT doubt a bit when I read things like this, but who wouldn’t want this to be authentic and real? I do my best to keep my ego and somewhat analytical mind in the corner while I read his messages, and I find them fascinating!  

As I said, the blog itself is a bit overwhelming… and that’s perhaps why I haven’t been a regular reader in a long time. But I’ve really enjoyed the book so far. Having it all organized in book form has really been helpful to me. After giving some background and describing the tragic moments that changed the family’s life forever, Elisa goes right into what I can only assume is a kind of “best of” from Erik. At the moment I’m only halfway through the book, but so far Erik has given answers to most of the typical questions that people wonder about the Afterlife. 

 

“Energy Formulas”

I don’t know why this fascinated me so much, but I immediately thought to blog on it when I read it. It’s so simple, really. 

Elisa asked Erik how it was possible for him, or spirits in general I suppose, to create smells, good or bad, so that we on Earth notice or sense them. Erik has been known to be a jokester, and so he apparently will often create “rank sock smells”, for example.

He answered by saying “everything has an energy formula on Earth, so I just replicate that energy formula, and I put it in that space.” So stop to think about the energy formula that your perfume or cologne is made up of, or even something we see as solid, like your desk or coffee cup. He says that what we end up sensing or smelling doesn’t actually exist. It’s just the energy formula that we’re sensing.

And do you know what I instantly thought of? It made me think of binary code, or the 1s and 0s used in computer programming, and even the recording of CDs. When would I ever think about or even try to understand binary code? A recording in a .wav or mp3 file, or from a CD playing, can potentially put me in a kind of euphoric state, or make me cry, or transport me to another world. The music and the orchestra isn’t sitting here in my room or living in my headphones, but the code is. So when I stop to think about it now, I totally get it. I mean, I don’t think it’s a concept that we’ll ever completely understand until we get such knowledge and experience on the Other Side, but I’m beginning to process it.

 

Isn’t it fascinating?

Whether you choose to believe all of this or not, isn’t it truly fascinating when you think about it? Or… am I just a nerd? One of my earliest readers and blogging friends, Ashley, knows a lot about Erik and the CE site, and she created the Facebook group for fans and readers of ChannelingErik.com. I hope she chimes in!  *HINT HINT*

 

A Message for Erik

This message is for Erik, if he’s reading. I know you’ve been known to visit and play tricks on many of the visitors and readers of ChannelingErik.com. I’ve made the request before, but I’m sure you’re busy. Consider this a formal invitation to bug the hell out of me for experimental purposes! Bring it. And I’ll keep everyone posted. 

 

Peace!

 

 

 

 


Mediums at the Turn of the Century…

This has definitely been one of the longest blog droughts for me, and so if you’ve been waiting for new content, I apologize and thank you for your patience. I’m recovering from one of the most stressful few weeks I’ve ever had in my real gig. For a music teacher, December and May are particularly challenging, and sometimes they are a nightmare. For four days I did not return from work until 8 or 9 in the evening, and even then I did work up until bedtime. I finished off the week with a bang, and fortunately not literally, because I went roller skating on a field trip with many of our kids on Friday. It had been years. I’m proud to say that though the skills didn’t come back to me as fast as they did seven or eight years ago, I managed to do okay… and I DIDN’T FALL! I had a blast, though if the muscles in my right ankle could talk, they’d say something very different.

 

So here’s a little something for you today.

I learned this in the book Lily Dale: The Town That Talks to the Dead by Christine Wicker, which I’m reading right now. Mediums at the turn of the century, real or hoaxers, were almost all women. Men were only okay with listening to these women mediums speak because it was men that were almost always being channeled through them. It was clear that these mediums were the real thing, because there is no way that a woman could come up with such great wisdom and answers on her own. 

 

This either made you laugh or really annoyed you. Either way, I thought it was an interesting look back, and a great example of how far we’ve come in a century… though many would argue we’ve got a long way to go yet.

Guiding Dreams and Channeling

Metaphysical spiritual teacher, Eugenia Oganova, has offered to share some wisdom and guidance about dreams and channeling from her recent book, Awakening the Harmony Within.” I think you’ll enjoy her post. When you’re done reading here be sure to click through to her website and blog using the link at the end of the post. Eugenia offers a great deal of practical metaphysical spiritual wisdom that will certainly enrich your journey.

Guiding Dreams and Channeling

Whatever we experience is REAL to us. If you see/sense/feel a being’s presence next to you – that is a truth for you. If you started with a guided visualization of, for example, entering a cavern, but then the vision took off on its own, expanding into something you saw – that is real. If you had a vivid dream and felt some extreme emotion in relationship to it – it is real.

.

There are three types of dreams:

Mental processing dreams,

Emotional processing dreams,

Guiding dreams.

. 

The mental type we all know very well – these are the annoying dreams of the images from your day – they occur because the brain is tired and overloaded, and even though the body is asleep, the brain is still running energy through the same neuron pathways that were used during the day when we were awake. These dreams mean nothing except that we are not in the Higher Self!

The emotional dreams are intense. Most people are scared of vivid dreams, especially if they seem to be about something negative (like that your friend dies, or that you find out something you don’t want to), and then either dismiss the dream as “stupid” (this is avoidance of true reality), or take the dream literally (as in, if someone dies in the dream, this means they will die in material life). Neither is true! The emotion is the truth, not the story! The emotion you felt in the dream is the message – something you are already feeling in your subconscious but for some reason do not want your conscious mind to see, it is coming out to be noticed. It is not aprediction of how things will go, it is simply a message about what already is in your subconscious. Vivid dreams are not predictions, but messages about what is that we did not notice…

Guiding type dreams are not only intense, but you can swear they are real! The reason for this is that they involve not only the emotional body, but also the mental and etheric bodies – i.e. they feel almost physical to your perception, so much so that sometimes during the day after such a dream a person might feel that they are remembering a “real” memory, only to realize it did not happen in material reality. These dreams are also NOT predictions. The future is not written, we make it as we go through our choices and actions, so if you believe the dream to be a prediction of the events to come, you might cement it into your experience through your own emotional reaction – fear or need). Vivid guiding dreams are very important to pay attention to and de-code, though! Why? – Because they do come from the Higher Self. It is a divine part of us that is showing us something. But it means different things – that is where the wisdom is! These dreams are never literal, always symbolic. Track your feelings to what you experienced and try to link these to the real life circumstances you are experiencing (internal or external) – chances are there is an answer for you in the dream!

Channeling is a way of aligning with the higher frequencies. All cultures throughout history cherished individuals, who were able to communicate with the unseen. There are many names for these people – prophets, seers, lucid dreamers, shamans, oracles, mediums, psychics, channels. Some were born with an innate ability to remain in alignment, others had that ability activated by their own Soul, or through special training.

Channeling energy through you while dreaming or while awake can bring a message from the non-physical reality. But who do we channel when we get a message from the Other Side? These messages can come from a person who had died but is somehow linked to us emotionally (like a deceased relative), from an ancestor who is linked to us spiritually (it can be our genetic ancestor, or someone from our Soul-group), or from the energy guides who support us on our journey here in matter.

Channeling while dreaming falls into the category of “guiding dreams” and does not require one to be in a very expanded conscious state – just being open is enough. Conscious channeling while awake can only occur when one has expanded his/her range of consciousness (i.e. the vibratory range) to match the range of (or at least to overlap with) the entity being channeled. You can read more on this in my Channeling Article here.

Interacting with energy guides, angelic entities, yours and others’ Higher Selves – all of these require your faith in something outside of this matter-based world. If you want to be able to change the programming of your system, you have to first believe that there is more to your system than the matter-body, then believe that your consciousness can envision a different you, and that you can become that new you. Over-thinking is a limitation that blocks an ability to consciously dream and/or channel. We must become open (“porous”) and silence the personal Egos (thoughts) so that we cancel out all interference, able to perceive the message as it comes through us.

From the Author ~

I have always felt myself to be “on a mission” of enlightment – for myself, others, and the planet. My clairvoyant abilities allow me to have an intimate relationship with Earth, the Galaxy, and the Universe, which have never felt far away to me. Being able to perceive the multidimensionality of universal energy, I live in a perpetual experience of Source’s Light/Code in every moment, parallel to regular life’s circumstances, thoughts and feelings. The holographic nature of our reality was apparent to me from birth, and the exploration of that hologram became my life’s work. I have studied science, history, archaeology and astronomy in Russia and in the U.S. and have a BFA degree from the Art Institute of Boston. I am an autodidact in anatomy and biology, nuclear physics, archaeology, ancient history and mythology, metaphysics and Theosophy. I now live in Maine with my husband, and have a company called Pravda, Inc. (which means “truth” in Russian). For over twenty years now, using my ability to see and read energy, I help people figure out solutions to many life’s challenges through my books, seminars, and private sessions.

Phony Psychic in Raytown…

Yesterday Joe sent me the links to an episode of Mama’s Family where a phony psychic comes to town. This would normally not be a blog that would condone such a thing, but it was such a cute and funny episode that I hadn’t seen. I had to laugh at all the different buzz words and woo woo lingo. And watch for how she fished for all of her info. If these embedded links disappear as they sometimes do, the episode is #116 from season 6 (1989/90) and is called “Psychic Pheno-Mama”.

Enjoy! (Last night of family vacation at the lake.)

Séance 101

I just finished Séance 101 by Elaine M. Kuzmeskus. This was one of the books I purchased for summer reading and to research some possible upcoming séance experiences. 

I have to first be honest and tell you that it isn’t exactly what I thought it would be. It seems to be more of a history of physical mediumship, with an occasional emphasis on the séance. Some of the bigger topics Elaine hits on are table tipping, psychic photography, opening the third eye, trance mediumship, medical clairvoyance, psychic surgery (which I found fascinating and hadn’t really heard of), trumpet séances, precipitated painting, and materialization. She does this while discussing many important mediums along the way.  

Also, I have to very respectfully and honestly tell you that the editing in this book is absolutely horrible. There are so many terms misspelled, or spelled multiple ways within a single chapter even. An example of this would be “chakra” being spelled “charka”, “chaka”, and in the index it’s even spelled “chakas”. It reminded me of the day my mother innocently referred to them as “chokers”. 🙂 But also, there are several sentence fragments, missing periods, incorrect book titles… things like that. It distracted me a lot. It is an out of print book, and my copy is in good shape but is actually a discarded copy from the St. Louis Public Library. Did they not like it? 

If you can get past all of the editing flaws and are interested in learning about the history of physical mediumship, you may want to check out this book. Actually, the book was written in 2007. Just last month, Elaine came out with a brand new book (which is also on my “to be read” shelf) titled The Art of Mediumship: Psychic Investigation, Clairvoyance, and Channeling.  I’m sure I’ll share more on that when I get to it. 

So there you have it. It’s not the most comfortable read in the world, but I’m sure I’ll refer to it in the future.

From the inside cover of her most recent book.

Elaine Kuzmeskus, M.S. is a nationally recognized Spiritualist medium, who has been a presenter at Lily Dale Assembly in New York and the Learning Annex in New York City. During her thirty-five years as a medium, she has conducted many well-publicized séances, including the 1997 Official Houdini Séance and a séance for the play “Blythe Spirit”, at New Haven’s Long Wharf’s Theater. Recently, Elaine was featured on Better Connecticut and the PBS special, “Things That Go Bump in the Night”. 

She is also the director of the New England School of Metaphysics, Suffield, Connecticut, and the author of several books on mediumship including “Connecticut Ghosts” and a book on physical mediumship, “Séance 101”. 


More Random Bits and Thoughts on Scole…

My last post about Scole discussed creative energy, music and vibrations, and light. Here is my final post about my thoughts on The Scole Experiment: Scientific Evidence for Life After Death by Grant and Jane Solomon. 

Manifestations…

Photograph from 28 February 1994 of the front page of the ‘Daily Mirror’, 16 December 1936. A copy of the original was obtained. It was almost identical to the photograph, with some minor differences which indicated it might have been from another edition on the same day. The newspaper was tested and proved to be genuine wartime paper. (Caption taken from the book) This showed up on sealed photographic film after a sitting. 

During a session, instructions for building a Germanium receptor (for better communication) manifested on sealed photographic film. This signature appeared at the end and is thought to be that of Thomas Edison, since compared to existing documents, his signature from life seems to be identical. 

All of the color photos of phenomena and apports that are included in the book can be found on the Scole Experimental Group’s page, or you can click on the photos above. 

Wisdom from the spirit team…

The spirit team answered many of the Scole group’s questions, which are included in the book. Here are some of the shorter question/answers that I find interesting. 

I’ve always found it interesting how many people insist on there being a heaven and a hell, angels, devil, demons, dark side, etc. My current opinion is that it’s all nonsense, but I’m always open to learning and changing my opinions. It felt good to read this first question/answer. Is the spirit team saying there’s no evil outside of us? No hell? No devil?

Is there a negative side that fights this very positive energy?

No. It is man in his ignorance that causes problems. If man lives his life without aspiring to a spiritual awareness, he lives in ignorance. Ignorance breeds negativity and negative thoughts create a negative force as, in a similar way, positive thinking creates a positive force, so we have to work on the negative forces. Not, however, those outside of man, but those within man.

Do the Akashic Records exist and can we have access to them?

It is true to say that much information is stored in other realms and spheres. But again, perhaps not as much as you are led to believe. Some of the records are accessible to higher beings. There are also some on Earth who claim to have access to them, but I do not know if this is true. 

As always, any thoughts?
