My Life After Death begins on the tragic day when Erik Medhus took his own life. What follows is a moment-by-moment account of the spiritual life he discovered on the other side - told for the very first time in his own words, as channeled by medium Jamie Butler and then transcribed by his mother, Elisa. In this intimate and provocative memoir, Erik describes more than just a visit to the afterlife. He personally walks us through the experience of dying and reveals a detailed look at the life awaiting us on the other side. In doing so, he helps to answer crucial questions, including: What does it feel like to die? What is it like to become a spirit? Why and how do spirits communicate with the living? Is there a heaven? Ultimately, Erik's story provides the answers that will help listeners find solace and remove the fears surrounding death, showing that love has no boundaries and life does not truly end.

"Dr. Elisa Medhus offers a heartfelt, deeply moving story that invites readers to question their own beliefs of love, loss, and the afterlife." (Eben Alexander, author of Proof of Heaven)
I love to listen to metaphysical audio books and anything to help train the mind.
I gleaned much from this book as to what happens after death and it put some of the puzzle pieces together where I had unanswered questions in my own mind.
It is easy to listen to in its conversational style and the narrator is excellent. If you are not afraid to have your worldview challenged and you're ready to listen with an open mind, this is really good stuff.
I highly recommend.
This was such an amazing sharing. The first hour or so was a bit rough to listen to as it details the death of Erik in full sharing mode as is his style from his perspective but how awesome is it to have the perspective of one in the beyond. I have so much respect for Jaime and Elisa for being willing to bring this forth as that must have been so hard to do. It reminded me a little of The Afterlife of Billy Fingers as it is told from the perspective of the one in the beyond but also gave me a lot of peace for my loved ones that have past as well. Thank you for this sharing. Very well done.
I was enjoying this book in the beginning because I believe that there is something more after we die but "give me a break" Erik actually has a house, a motorcycle, and is able to transport himself to multiple locations all while channelling his heaven experience. I won't waste my precious time so I had to stop listening. I wish I could get a refund back on this book.
She tries to channel Erik's voice and sound like a cool teenage kid and is very distracting. I have a hard time believing that a spirit would use the f bomb nonstop and the lingo as a teenage boy which doesn't work well in a females voice on audio.
Only the fact that anyone can understand a mothers attempt to make sense of such a horrible thing of losing a child. If she is able to help even one person in this ridiculous narrative then it has a redeeming quality.
Don't waste your money. There are many many more comforting books on this subject that give more insight into the other side.

The f-bombs detracted from the narrative, but I kind of understand where it will appeal to a different audience. Many of the descriptions match up with those in other books. Where physicist Tom Campbell will give descriptions that are scientific in his My Big Toe series, this book is definitely in layman's verbiage and in a story narrative that is easier listening.
I went back to listen to a portion of Tom Campbell's My Big Toe series Book 2 last night after finishing the Medhus' audio book My Life After Death to confirm my thoughts on this matching overlap - and yes - these books do have areas in common. But My Big Toe is a pop-the-hood-and-look-underneath-to-see-how-it-works version in a really lengthy scientific point of view and My Life After Death is a more relatable version for lay people who like to use words like Angel or Guide and get information quick and simple.
The generous number of descriptions in this audio book of creating your own reality also match closely with descriptions found in the Seth books. The descriptions of interactions with electrical equipment, such as telephones, or even iTunes, was fascinating - as was the explanation and discussion of EVP phenomena and how it works. The many varied descriptions of energy and how it is used is exceptionally good and understandable.
This book's strength is in the explanations of how things work on the other side, and how energetic interactions back with the physical work. It's a book worth another listen sometime in the future since there is so much detailed information.
Channelled by Eric...he has opened mind to the fact that you can really communicate with your loved ones after they pass on..He has also told us about life in hesven! Thank you so much!
Erik's story is lovely and generous. However, I feel his message may be clouded by the excessive use of curse words. I understand that's who he is and he shouldn't be anybody but himself but when it comes to authoring a book, there is a certain amount of professionalism needed to convey a message. I am not sensitive to curse words and am very comfortable with the use of them. I just feel the valuable messages would be deeper if not for the curse words being used constantly which definitely hamper the ability to take them seriously.
I enjoyed the narrator's performance but it definitely would have been more enjoyable with a male narrator since it's being stated directly from Erik.
I have always had a different believe in the traditional religions. I was raised Catholic and grateful I was, I do believe in Jesus Christ I believe he was here to teach us, to be an example, let us know what we are all capable of. We need to be more loving, have an understanding that we are all ONE.
The first book I read probably about three times, listen to. It's an amazing read, I hope you do it as much as I have.

I read Elisa Medhus's first book and enjoyed it. I've spent time on her Eric website. I've watched some of the utube video's available. But I have to admit, for some reason, I always have slight doubt, and I'm not a doubter about this subject in the least.
I very much believe in communication with the other side, reincarnation, all of it. These are the types of books I navigate towards. I just continue to have this feeling of doubt about what is being written by Elisa Medhus, and I truly wish that doubt wasn't there..
Having said that, this book did nothing to squash those feelings. It actually just made it worse. The person narrating sounds like a dorky teenage cartoon character who uses the f-bomb constantly. Maybe the other side does continue with foul language, what do I know? But it really distracts from the message.
This is one book that should probably be read rather than listened to, as the narrators voice truly is so childish sounding. I realize Eric was a young man when he committed suicide but I doubt he sounded like a cartoon character. I've tried repeatedly to get through this book, only to end up looking for another book to listen to after a very short time.
