Book Description

In the follow-up to Elisa Medhus’s My Son and the Afterlife—“a heartfelt, deeply moving story” (Eben Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of Proof of Heaven)—her son Erik tells his astounding story directly from the afterlife, describing in detail his death, transition, and spiritual renewal.

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 discovers 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.

Overflowing with his signature honesty and candor, Erik describes more than just a visit to the afterlife. He personally walks us through the experience of dying, transitioning into spirit form, and reveals a detailed look at the life awaiting us on the other side.

In this intimate and provocative memoir, crucial questions will finally be answered, 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? and Is there a heaven? Ultimately, Erik’s story provides the answers that will help readers find solace, and remove the fears surrounding death, showing that love has no boundaries and life does not truly end.

Meet the Authors

Erik Medhus

Erik Rune Medhus is an eternal twenty-year-old who passed away on October 6, 2009. From his new place in Heaven, Erik’s main occupation is a spirit guide who helps those who struggle with their human experience, and he is the inspiration and contributor to the Channeling Erik blog and community. With candor, sincerity and humor, Erik shares his own experiences and explorations of what happens after death in the first book of the series My Son and the Afterlife (October 2013) by his mother Elisa Medhus, MD. Now Erik’s full story, a memoir from heaven, is brought to the forefront in the follow-up title, My Life After Death (September 2015). 

Elisa Medhus, M.D.

Elisa Medhus is a physician and mother of five who has practiced internal medicine for over thirty years. She is the author of three award-winning parenting books and has lectured on parenting for schools, parent groups, and corporations. After the death of her twenty-year-old son Erik, Dr. Medhus began journaling her grief in her blog 

A strong believer in science, she formerly viewed spiritual matters with skepticism. Once Erik began to communicate with family, friends, and blog members, her entire paradigm shifted. After devouring books on the quantum physics explaining the science behind spirituality, Dr. Medhus began her journey towards spiritual understanding and belief.

Press Reviews

“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

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

“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 appreci”

Mark Ireland
author of Soul Shift and Messages from the Afterlife

“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”

Meeting God

After Celia and the group of angels told me that I was destined to become a guide and help people on Earth, I remember going back to the first home I built, the earthlike home. I sat on the couch and started to reflect on how my family was having a really hard time with my death. They were torn apart with so much grief that they couldn’t glue themselves back together. My mom and dad weren’t really talking, and nobody could understand everybody else’s feelings. I just wanted to know why. Why? Why did my path and separation have to create so much suffering?

That’s when God came to me.
