    Story
    "Consciousness, Reality, Why are we here"

    Open-minded skeptics will find this informative.

    Elisa Medhus stated at the beginning of this book that after her son's death she read and researched books about the afterlife.

    She specifically mentioned Tom Campbell's work, which I also find useful. (He is the author of the My Big TOE trilogy and has over 200 youtube videos to learn from)

    The format of the book seems to be in chapters that are on a particular topic to do with what happens after death, or some aspect of reality beyond what most people are familiar with.

    Within the chapters are transcripts of basically three people: the author, a "translator" (a medium who can see and converse with her son) and her son.

    The questions the author brings to the many sessions are very good questions. Some of the follow up questions are perfect. I've read books to do with Consciousness and the construct of reality, why we are here, past lives, reincarnation, near death experiences, out of body travel to the astral and beyond, and some physics or science books related to these subjects, and have had some of these same questions. I'm so glad to have found this book and get quite a few questions answered.

    The last portion of the book answered some pretty important questions people often have - such as what about animals, plants, rocks - do they have consciousness or souls - what about God? - what about Jesus? - what about other famous enlightened people - Budda? Gandhi? others? what about angels - more really interesting information about animals (like our pets who can be with us through various lives and even multiple times in one lifetime) and also about those that endure suffering - and what about suffering people? what about these physics theories? what about telepathy? or that tunnel? or what about people who believe this or that or nothing at all?

    Sometimes the chattiness of the transcribed conversations did get a tad annoying, but it was a whole lot better than stuffy science wording. So, unless the target audience is conservative scientists who need to open up their limiting belief systems, the book is just fine. The foul language didn't upset me and was simply true to the transcripts.

    Mentioned at least twice in this book was the 3-dimensional net like system on the "other side" with interesting comments about that.

    Excellent and informative.

    I am a follower of the blog. I am a believer in the afterlife, and I am more open to spirituality than I ever was due to Erik's insights. Thank you Elsa for you perspective and sharing your journey with Erik as he shares so many insights. This led me to a reading with Jamie Butler and Erik. Erik helped me understand my real purpose for this lifetime. I am ever so grateful for this experience and ever so calm in my life for the first time in a long time. Thank you.

    "The foul language is really annoying..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    well... yeah, just barely.


    Any additional comments?

    I believed the content is not fiction, and I believe the story is true and the intention of the book is really good. I can see the life between life realm described here is somewhat believable. However, I have to be very honest that this book is not very well written. The 2 star I gave here is for the book's intention.The deceased teenage Eric 's very foul language is just not received well by me at all. The kind of teenage attitude and seemingly lighthearted tone might be very endear and familiar to his mother , but to the reader , it seems very shallow and distasteful at times. I really feel because of the juvenile attitude, it actually discredit the book content's precious message quite bit. As reader and strongly believed in afterlife and spiritual realm, I had hard time with his way of talking and describing the afterlife even I do believe it. On the other hand, the conversation between the mother and son is somewhat repetitive and boring. Some question from the mother is really the roll your eye kinds of question, such as : do you have bus driver or plumber job on the other side... similar kind of questions asked repetitively ...
