TITLE: MY SON AND THE AFTERLIFE: Conversations from the Other Side”
SPECIAL GUEST: Dr. Elisa Medhus
An emotional journey through grief to healing and skepticism to belief—discover the answers that will change your life forever. Until her son Erik took his own life at the age of twenty, Dr. Elisa Medhus never believed in life after death. But all of that changed when Erik began communicating with her from the other side. As an accomplished physician, Dr. Medhus had placed her faith in science.
But the tragedy surrounding her son’s death forced her to seek answers, to ask those universal questions we have all asked ourselves: Is there life after death? Do the dead communicate with the living? In My Son and the Afterlife, answers are finally revealed. Through a series of conversations, Erik reveals a compendium of new knowledge on the nature of death and afterlife, the abilities and activities of the soul, and the powerful experience that love knows no boundaries—not even death.
Intimate, heartbreaking, and illuminating, go on an incredible journey from grief and skepticism, to healing and belief. Based on Medhus’s wildly popular blog Channeling Erik, My Son and the Afterlife provides answers to the most universal questions of being human.
At once tragic and uplifting, Erik speaks from the other side with candor, wisdom, and depth as he describes his own experiences and provides new answers on the nature of souls, death, and the afterlife—answers that have the potential to change our lives forever.

After the death of her twenty-year-old son Erik, Dr. Medhus began journaling her grief in her blog ChannelingErik.com.

Why she created her blog and wrote her book
Since Elisa’s belief is that you heal best when you help others, she decided to vent her pain by creating a safe and loving community where other’s who grieve could share their pain as well. Channeling Erik was born. What Elisa has discovered during her journey is that people yearn for answers. Seventy-eight million baby boomers are grappling with their own mortality and the death of loved ones. Because of that universal need and curiosity, she decided to collect the material from Erik’s answers to those many pressing questions and create a compendium of knowledge about death, the afterlife, the untethered spirit and much more.
