Dr. Elisa Medhus never believed in life after death. As an accomplished physician, she placed her faith in science. All of that changed after her son Erik took his own life and then reached out from the other side.
Intimate, heartbreaking, and illuminating, this book takes listeners 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 about the nature of souls, death, and the afterlife-answers that have the potential to change our lives forever.

My Son and the Afterlife
I'm sorry, but this book did nothing for me. I read everything I can get my hands on about the afterlife, and I found this book to be a true disappointment. Perhaps it is just not in line with my personal beliefs, but for a spirit who has passed on to be sharing that he misses food more than anything, and sex after that, I find it hard to believe. As well, while I am not a purist by any means, the prolific cursing was exhausting. I applaud the author, his mama, for taking on the task of opening her mind and reaching out for her son after his death, but the morose young adult banter got exhausting by Chapter 4. God bless the young man and his mother, and all of his family left behind with the pain, but the book is a little too riddled with cute banter to rate much higher for me.
