Is there life after death? Is there proof of the soul?
Elisa Medhus, a physician and mother of five, received the news any mother could receive. Her 20-year-old son, Erik, committed suicide by taking a .45 caliber handgun and shooting himself in the head in their home. Erik was bipolar.
As a woman of science and skeptical about the soul's survival after death, she began to question her beliefs when inexplicable events began to happen shortly after Erik's death. Erik began to communicate with family, friends and blog members. After devouring various books on quantum physics explaining the science behind spirituality, her beliefs began to shift. She became a believer. Now, she channels Erik through renowned medium Jamie Butler, asking him questions about death, the afterlife and so much more.
As her blog members join her in this journey toward spiritual understanding, Erik continues to offer not only his insight as an insider on the other side, but also adds some comic relief with his mischievous pranks. She shares her journey in her first book, My Son and the Afterlife: Conversations from the Other Side. Now, Erik has authored his own book, My Life After Death: A Memoir from Heaven. (see Orb photographs attached below taken by Dr. Medhus' daughter.)
In addition to her two books about Erik, Dr. Medhus is also the author of three award-winning parenting books, Raising Children Who Think for Themselves, Hearing is Believing, and Raising Everyday Heroes.
