This is an old thread, but I need to state some things. I am a mother who lost her son earlier this year. Initially because of my grief I was drawn to this "Channeling Erik" blog. In the beginning I bought into it because I was in so much pain and wanted answers. But things started to seem false. Interviews with JFK, Ted Bundy, Bob Hope, and yes even Jesus. The list goes on. Apparently all Erik's mom (Elisa Medhus) has to do is ask Erik and he will bring in everybody. From Mother Earth to Little Grey Aliens. Then there are the times when Erik takes over Jamie Butler's body and she begins to ACT like Erik. It is so ridiculous. All of them are making a lot of money off grieving parents. Now they are trying to get a reality tv show out of it, and of course Elisa Medhus is going to write another book. So many facts wrong in these celebrity interviews. I think now Jamie Butler is charging $650 for a medium session. She also does 7 minute phone sessions, and group sessions, can you see the amount of money she is raking in? So many people now on the facebook blog think they are really powerful mediums too. Everyone is having Erik signs, and pranks, and out of body experiences. Everyone is an expert. And if you question anything, because it seems impossible, Elisa Medhus will freak out. How dare you question her a "grieving mom." So nobody ever does. Elisa Medhus also asks everyone to like her page, her videos, any interviews, votes on blogger awards, etc. I believed at first that she was just a grieving mom, and not at fault. Then one night I woke up like BAMM! And you know what hit me? She is false too. Why? Because I know that as a mom, who knows her son, if someone like Jamie Butler was connected with him, and his words were coming out of her mouth, I would know in an instant if it was my son talking. No doubt. The interviews through Jamie/Erik/Elisa are so weird. Both mom and son have foul language. But it's not even that. It is the way his mom giggles and posts her questions. It is so hard to believe she is even a doctor due to her immaturity. I really feel that this site is taking advantage of grieving people. I feel it to the core. I just hope that someday what I feel will be proven. And I do have beliefs in the afterlife. Just not with these people. The best mediums in the world could not do what Jamie Butler claims. At least none I know about. If you investigate like I did, please post your thoughts.
