I’ve been thinking of starting a Vlog 🙂 I have a Youtube account, but I never use it! Might as well put it to good use. I know you all will just enjoy my boring life 😉 I wanted to share with you all my review of a remarkable book I read. I wrote two different reviews, and I would like to share both of them with you.

Amazon review/more professional review:
My Life After Death: A Memoir From Heaven was a phenomenal book to read. The word “phenomenal” doesn’t even begin to cover how incredible this book is. The story follows a young man, who has taken his own life, as he explains how his afterlife is like. He provides incredible detail of the things he sees, smells, hears, and feels while exploring his way through Heaven. Not only that, but you learn of his journey to becoming a spirit guide, what God is, the concept of time, and the feelings he felt for his family after he had crossed over. You get to see from the point of view of a spirit what the after life is like, which has brought great comfort and an understanding I wouldn’t otherwise have had.
You actually get to go inside of Erik’s head and understand his every thought and feeling leading up to his transition and afterward. His hilarious, and sometimes mildly inappropriate, sense of humor along with his colorful vocabulary involving many cuss words is what gets you hooked because he is such a relatable guy. His voice throughout the book is carried out in such a way that you are able to connect easily with him because he isn’t speaking formally. You sympathize with his every word, and you are pulled in by, not only his experiences, but his compassion.
It’s easy to fall in love with this book from the very beginning. It’s a very gripping story that will keep you hooked from start to finish. I was blown away by how easily I understood the concepts that were spoken about like timelessness and the idea that there is no true “right” or “wrong”. I highly recommend this inspiring book. It will change the way you feel about the world and others around you, and it will also change how you view yourself, which is something that no other book has been able to give me. I have been able to shift my entire perspective, and I have discovered a whole new meaning to my life. Because of this book, I now see my life as worthy and something that’s beautiful for me to enjoy. This profound book has changed my life and also saved it.
Here is my review for Barnes & Noble/more personal review:
I actually edited it, and took out the more personal stuff I sent to the co-author, Elisa. However, I want to share the more personal stuff with you since I’m practicing on opening up more emotionally. Stepping out of my comfort zone here!
Erik has saved my life more than once. Wow! What a great way to start a long ass story, right? He saved my life! Boom! There it is! I could leave it at that, but I want to fully explain how he has saved my life because he does so everyday. It’s not just one circumstance where I’m sitting there in my room alone about to do it, when he eventually steps in. It’s literally every single day.
I struggle with suicidal thoughts. It’s really hard for me to talk about because it’s only Erik that knows the extent of it. I don’t open up much to people. I only feel safe opening up and crying with him. Maybe it has to do with him not being in the physical? I have no idea, but I only feel emotionally safe with him, which he has pushed me to open up to people through a blog. It has helped a lot for me.
I’m not completely sure if I’d still be here on Earth if it weren’t for him. I hit lows in my life, and they happen at random. One day I’ll be happy, grateful for my life, and loving everything about it and then the next day I’m depressed and feel this dark hopelessness looming over me. I don’t trust myself to be alone during these times because I always end up doing something stupid to myself like cutting. I usually have to force myself to sit down away from anything sharp. I have to even keep my own fingers away from my body because I’ll be tempted to start scratching to harm myself. I have to lay my hands down away from my body and spread my fingers apart. I take deep breaths to calm myself, and I try to pull myself out of this darkness. I don’t trust my thoughts either, so I use music to drown them out. This is when Erik shows up. He always does without fail.
I can channel him, and all I can hear is him telling me to get out the pendulum to talk since I’m in no shape to channel. I created me and Erik’s own pendulum chart that we use that has cuss words on it. I have a lot of fun joking with him on it. He’ll begin swinging it and telling me to “let go” and talk about how I’m feeling. I always end up crying like a baby, and then after I’m done crying, I begin to feel lighter. Then we start to joke around, and I no longer feel the need to hurt myself to drown out my emotional pain. Laughter really is the best medicine.
That’s how he saves me when things get tough for me. Reading My Life After Death: A Memoir From Heaven, I got to see form Erik’s point of view. I’ve always wanted to get inside his head and dissect his every thought now and when he was in the physical. This book allowed me to do that, and it made me feel not alone. Reading how he learned to appreciate Human life, made me begin to realize how I should start appreciating mine. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I cried while reading the book, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I was crying now as I’m typing this up (haha!). Erik saved my life yet again just by writing this book, and so did you Elisa. I’m so eternally grateful for everything you and Erik have given me through the blog, and through this book (Fuck, dude! I’m shaking!).
If it weren’t for this book, I think I’d still be going through the cycles of being happy and upbeat for a month or two and then having my random lows the next. I’m going to take control over my life and who I am. Like Erik said, I can control my emotional state and I want to. I am choosing to fight my depression, so I can stop with my suicidal thoughts. This book has brought me hope and courage to start fighting back over something I never thought I’d have control over. So thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
As you can see, I fell in love with this book. I hope you take the time to check it out 🙂 it just might change your perspective. Try something new!
