Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

A Spiritual Perspective on Suicide

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Impelloe, that were raised after reading our post, Challenges, Suicide, and Spiritual Growth. Impelloe says they’re surprised The Council isn’t more discouraging of suicide and they make it seem like a viable option.

The Council says suicide is a viable option. They ask why would we discourage someone from pre-planning suicide in spirit and deciding that it’s something they want to learn from? Or understand something they’ve gone through from another lifetime? Or understand something they may choose in a future lifetime? We’d never discourage anything a soul is planning.

Sometimes a soul will choose suicide to teach people around them a lesson, like waking up to ideas they didn’t have before, or understanding love and when it’s lost as opposed to when it’s there. There’s nothing wrong with suicide if that’s what you want to experience. If you choose suicide to help another soul grow or to help yourself grow there’s nothing wrong with that because you never end. You leave one lifetime (or reality) and plan another.

As difficult as suicide is for the people who are left behind, they’ve all chosen in spirit to be part of this suicide experience. It’s not something you’re forcing another soul to go through. It’s an example of group acceptance. We’ll go through this suicide with you because you want to learn about it. It’s going to be difficult for us, but we love you enough to participate in this suicide for you.

Or the person who commits suicide does it to teach people something they desperately want to learn. We are spirits that are here to learn from bad experiences as well as good ones and it’s all done out of love.

If you know or hear of someone who’s committed suicide, don’t judge them. You can wonder what their lesson was. What was your lesson? What did you learn from this suicide? You can applaud the spirit who commits suicide because they’ve pulled off something that could have been very difficult. It was their way out to end this lifetime, learn from it, and help you learn.

Impelloe asks if suicide is ever the only planned exit strategy. The Council says suicide is never the only plan. You always have options. Some people may choose to heal. Someone who’s depressed my find a doctor that gives them the medicine they need. Some people come in with the plan that if life is too difficult for them they’ll use suicide as a possible out. They leave that option on the table, but they want to learn, grow, and find out what else they can do to change their situation, to understand themself, or to help the other people around them. There are many options. The soul chooses what it wants to learn.

Impelloe asks if someone creates a soul contract to commit suicide, do they have to go through with it? The Council says, no, because you always have the ability to change what you have planned. In your human mind you may think you want to change it, but your higher self may say no because you really want to go through this suicide. It’s difficult. We know as a human you want to change your plans to commit suicide, but your higher self knows you’ve chosen to experience it and so you stay with it.

Impelloe asks about a suicide that speaks out about injustice and changing something, like a hunger striker. The Council says if you pick an experience like being a hunger striker to change injustice or unfair conditions, then that’s probably what you wanted to do and the only way to do this was to do something drastic. If you’ve committed suicide and ended one reality, but have made a great change for others, this is a great thing you’ve done out of love.

Impelloe closes by saying they hope challenges can still be overcome and speaking out be done another way beside suicide. The Council replies that of course there are other ways besides suicide for those people who choose them.

What Can I Do to Have Good Health?

This interesting post contains questions from a reader named Marie, who asks The Council about issues with her health. Marie’s been healthy most of her life, but starting over six years ago she’s experienced breast cancer, lymphoma, and skin cancer, one after the other.

The Council says Marie needs to fully understand that going through these different illnesses doesn’t have anything to do with being a bad person, and has nothing to do with what she believes as karma (her illnesses aren’t payment for things she’s done in other lifetimes). She’s experiencing these illnesses so she can balance her energy.

In this lifetime and other lifetimes it’s the intent behind Marie’s words and actions and what she wishes for other people that creates this imbalance of energy when these words, actions, or thoughts are negative. As Marie came into this lifetime, her focus was on what she desires to bring into balance.

Next The Council said something about Marie not having to experience what she’s created, but she needs to understand it and learn the reality she’s living is the most important one because it’s creating the energy that needs to be balanced, and it’s creating an easier lifetime when she goes forward into other lifetimes.

At this point in the session, The Council asked Bob (as they frequently do) if this is understood, and Bob said, “No”. After a little laughter on both The Council and Bob’s part, they attempted to re-explain.

The Council said if you don’t understand when people go through poverty in another lifetime, you would experience going through poverty at some point in your future lives to try and understand it better. As you grasp that you’re going through this poverty, The Council says you can experience compassion for yourself.

When you can accept the experience of poverty (or in Marie’s case, illness) without judgement (whether you judge yourself for creating it or you judge it as a horrible situation that you’re angry about), you are balancing this energy, and when you do this with understanding and love, the poverty or illness will cease to exist.

The Council says there were a few lifetimes for Marie where there was no patience on her part for being around people who were sick. There was a time where there was a loss of a limb and there was a lot of sadness and judgement against what Marie experienced as her God. In another lifetime Marie was angry for experiencing bad luck.

Now Marie is setting up her life to go through these illnesses, not to judge them or be angry for going through them, but to simply understand this is what it’s like and to work through it. And in that understanding and peacefulness of wanting to learn and grow and take the next leap on her spiritual path, future illness will not be necessary.

Marie asked if she planned these illnesses before she incarnated into this physical life, and The Council says, definitely yes.

Marie asks what more she can do to get on a stable path of good health? She feels like she’s on some kind of a loop. The Council says this feeling of being on a loop is because she’s trying to balance many other lifetimes in her current lifetime. They suggest she think of all the health issues she’s experienced in her current lifetime and in a peaceful way, accept that she’s created this to understand it, feel what this is like, and to keep moving forward.

The Council adds that this situation of illness after illness is able to easily turn around for Marie, and if she is able to calmly come to a place of understanding what the illnesses feel like, these illnesses will disappear.

The Council closes by saying that in the greater scheme of things the experience of these illnesses is a good thing for Marie because as she accepts this and wonders about it in a calm way without judging it, she is creating wonderful energy for future lifetimes.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance on balancing and understanding illness for Marie and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about this, or ask a different question.

Do not pass judgment on fear,

It is one of your creations.
