"Dr. Elisa Medhus offers a heartfelt, deeply moving story that invitesreaders to question their own beliefs of love, loss, and the afterlife." (Eben Alexander, MD, author of the NY Times bestseller Proof of Heaven (Praise for My Son and the Afterlife))
"My Life After Death takes us on an extraordinary journey filled with inspiration, love, and hope. Well worth reading and celebrating. Thank you, Dr. Medhus and Erik." (Gary E. Schwartz, PhD, author of The Sacred Promise and The Afterlife Experiments)
“From the graphic description of finding himself looking at his own dead body and seeing all the commotion and heartache that his suicide caused, Erik Medhus provides us with a totally new perspective on what its like to die. His voice is clear, direct and intimate as if talking to a close friend in the language of young people today. His insights are poignant and profound. Eric tells it like it is ‘no punches pulled.’ My Life After Death will expand your understanding of mental illness, suicide, spirituality, love, and the afterlife. And above all it is a book of joy, hope, and wonder.” (Dr. Victor Zammit, co-author of A Lawyer Presents the Evidence for the Afterlife and The Friday Afterlife Report)
“Communicating through a medium, Erik Medhus draws us into experiencing his world and his life in the afterlife. We experience his senses, emotions, thoughts, amazement, discoveries, and surprises as he has lived them since his passing. My Life After Death is an absorbing journey through the afterlife that I recommend to anyone who wants to understand the realm we will all eventually inhabit by experiencing it through the engrossing accounts of this young man living there now.” (R. Craig Hogan, PhD, author of Your Eternal Self)
“Many books suggest that consciousness and personality continue after death, supported by evidence from spiritual mediums who convey accurate messages related to specific deceased persons. This book is unique in that it describes what existence is like for Erik Medhus after his physical death. It is interesting to envision Erik’s mode of communication with ‘living’ loved ones—and to contemplate the various realms and experiences described as he becomes aware of his true nature. But I most appreciate his fresh take on the value of Earth life, reflected by these words: ‘Hold hands, man. Hug everybody. Have a hugfest.’ ” (Mark Ireland, author of Soul Shift and Messages from the Afterlife)

For over 40 years I have devoured every imaginable book about the After Life. My library rivals that of a My 40 + year journey has ended. public library in that aspect - from Anthony Borgia to an 1800 era channeled Judge - you name it -
I’ve read it, beginning with the famous Ruth Montgomery whom I met, decades ago. I’ve even done Voice Narration for one of the largest Talking Book Centers in the World and many voice narrations were in the metaphysical category.
But, I never thought my search for the truth would satisfyingly end with a 20 year old Erik Medhus interspersing salty language with his blow by blow description of life in the after life. Was I taken back by the salty language? Absolutely. But, it is what it is.
Reading this fascinating book - and then re-reading it again - has me more prepared for the process we will go through when our brief journey has ended here and we move on to another dimension.
Erik’s story is basically confirmed in my many hundreds of other readings, but never - ever - to the extent
Erik has vividly described. Erik took it over the top with the help of his amazing translator.
For those paranormal novices reading this book, either you love it, hate it, or are mind boggled. But, believe me, when I say once again, this one young man’s book is a complete compilation of my decades of research.
It all comes together! That says a lot. No. It says more than a lot for me.
Further your own religious upbringing will also determine how you view this book. Cast your "earthly" philosophies and beliefs aside. Years ago, I threw off all the man made rules of my Catholic upbringing. Common sense dictated to me that centuries ago, religions were in political power hungry struggles. But, I’m not here to discuss religion. I’m saying that just to be a decent, compassionate human being is all that’s required. Pretty darn simple stuff.
We know Erik’s mother was an atheist due to the fact her parents were atheists. Erik was quite young, however. But it seems she had her own searching to do. I have the feeling that young Erik didn’t have too much entrenched formulation in that direction one way or another. He went as an open book.
My unquenchable thirst these many years has now been fulfilled completely. I was always looking for another piece of the after life puzzle. Always searching. Never fully complete. Always had yet another question. No more.
Thank you, Erik. When my time comes for me to check out the "other side", I will also seek you out to thank you in spirit. And, I also practice what you said, Erik, when you said you missed hugging your mother and loved ones; the act of touching we mere mortals take for granted. I hug more than I ever had before - taking those memories with me as well.
I would recommend this book to anyone that has ever felt sad, lonely, hurt, misunderstood, or abandoned. To anyone that has ever wondered, "what comes next?", if there is a God, or "where has my loved one gone? Are they okay?". This book will bring you love, peace, and all the answers you could ask for, and more, in vivid detail. So please, take a moment to read the first chapter, just the first one, and I promise that you won't want to put it down! Erik has literally saved my life, and I welcome you to let his love, and his message do the same for you.
I find Erik's story about life on the Other Side(not stuck between dimensions, like earthbound spirits, or shadows—a.k.a. ghosts) to be incredibly inspiring, deep, thoughtful, and funny (Erik's sense of humor actually rivals my own. Trust me. I have a dirty mind that could drink Erik's under the table, any day). Thus, I am impressed and fueled by Erik's ability to speak with an open tongue, to say what comes to mind and put it out there, the same way I teach my Composition and Writing courses in college. I am enthralled by the descriptions of energy fields, sensations and emotions within the Ethereal dimensions, our true home.
I take to heart Erik pointing out the affect that our words and actions, even the tiniest ones, have on others, to include those we think are hurting or bullying us. There is so much more real alternate spiritual history and story to every single individual on the planet (and everywhere, in every time-frame, in every dimension), that I find myself fighting back normal judgments, in order to remember that many of the truths Erik writes about are self-evident. Not everything can be recreated and proven in a physical lab. We know certain things to be true in our hearts. I've always realized that we are all playing roles, not just on Earth, but in the entirety of the Multiverse.
It's not always easy to see the true intent or motives behind people's actions. Yet, Erik is able to put these understandings into as plain and simple words as possible in this book, as well as the blog and videos. That is not easy to do. I know. I teach the language of writing, and language tends to fail us much of the time; the written word, especially, can be a rather pernicious little tool. Yet, like any tool, it all depends on how we use it, not that it exists. We apply meaning to words, not the other way around.
In My Life After Death, the written word represents, to me, one of the most beautiful attempts at relaying the Common Universal Spiritual Good I've ever seen attempted in this type of writing(and I've read a lot of them). There are only a few others that fit that profile. Erik is intentionally mindful with his words, while trying to get his thoughts and images across, without using much in the way of religious or psychological doublespeak, hyperbole, obtuseness or outright deception, like so much of our spoken and written life, as our politics of late continue to prove.
I find myself, at times, after reading or hearing something Erik has said, laughing the words, 'I love you, Erik.' I use those words in the sense of what Gene Roddenberry called The Commonality (from his mid-late 1990's series, Earth: Final Conflict), that We Are All One. Yes. That sounds so damned cliché, yet is the one Universal Truth staring the Human Race in the Face. My Life After Death does so much to point th is out.
I am planing on designing a Paranormal Literature and Investigations class over the next year. I am hoping to include Erik's My Life After Death as one of the required texts. Anyone in the course, for which I am hoping to teach through my college, will know why he or she is there. No one will be required to take the class. So, no one will be forcing students to believe anything, one way or another. This book offers a perspective that covers even the most resistant among us. Yet, if you are in the room, then you are meant to be in the room. You know why you are in the room.
My Life After Death is not meant to be left in the dark, just a part of a pile of books to be burned, or lost in some new age movement fad. No matter what happens in the physical realm, all thoughts last forever, all books, all stories, all ideas. It's what we do with these ideas and understandings, some of these being what I call universal truths, that will make all the difference. I would like to make a difference with Erik's words. That is how much this book has meant to me, Erik, Elisa, and Jamie. Thank you all so very much.
