I Can’t Accept My Friend Has Committed Suicide

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Feeling Empty, who lost a friend to suicide last week. They’re in complete disbelief and can’t believe he’s not here. My mind is unable to accept his death because I can’t attend the funeral (due to the coronavirus lockdown), which would make his death real and believable.

The Council asks if you can’t have faith in anything unless you see it? Your friend hasn’t gone anywhere. He’s still around you. He can still see and hear you. You’ll be able to hear him when you believe he’s just lost his human form. The essence of your friend is still here. This is what you need to experience.

Start with believing your friend has only changed his appearance. When you believe that and ask for signs he’s around, you will receive them. You’ll be together again and we’re sure there will be more lifetimes together.

There’s a lesson for you in your friend’s committing suicide as well as a lesson for him. What have you learned? Was your friend’s life so difficult or was he so sick that suicide was his way out?

Always remember suicide is a contract that’s made in spirit. It’s an option that’s available when life is too much. When you created your current lifetime everyone involved agreed that suicide was acceptable. Everyone would be okay about taking part in this. This way you help each other grow as souls.

Think of what your life has been like with your friend and what you’ve learned. Imagine how wonderful it is that you agreed to come so far with him and agreed to the suicide. And know you’ll be able to meet your friend again in another life if this is what you both want.

Feeling Empty asks if their friend is okay now and The Council says he’s perfectly fine. We assure you he’s very happy and very loved. And when it’s your turn to transition out of your human body he’ll be there and so will others you’ve shared this lifetime with. Feeling Empty asks if their friend knows how much I care about him. And The Council says he knows everything now.

Feeling Empty closes by saying although I’ve been spiritual and believed in an afterlife, I’m beginning to lose faith in all my beliefs. The Council says your faith will return when you get the sign you’re looking for, when you accept that your friend has left only your current reality, and you’re okay with that.

Your grief, anger, and loss of faith are blocking your connection between you and your friend back in spirit. Work on this. Realize all is well and the situation is exactly what you wanted. When you cross over you’ll meet again and you can plan other lifetimes together. Life goes on and on and on after you leave each individual life. When you’re happy knowing this you’ll receive your sign.

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 Happens Spiritually When Someone Commits Suicide?

This post answers questions for The Council by a reader who goes by the name, Lone Creator, who asks what happens when a spirit prematurely exits its incarnation because it doesn’t like the lessons it’s chosen?

The Council says you never stop learning, even if you don’t understand your situation while still in your physical incarnation. If you choose to end your current lifetime by suicide or by creating an incurable disease, The Council says this isn’t a problem.

Sometimes because your life and the lessons you chose involve other people, another spirit can come in and take your place so that these other people can continue their lessons. This is agreed upon in spirit before you come into this reality. When Bob asked for clarification on this point, The Council said in spirit you discuss with your guides what you’d like to create in your lifetime so they can help you with this. Sometimes your guides will advise you that you’ve planned too much, but they have to step back and let you create what you desire.

When you plan a lot and your guides question whether you’ll be able to accomplish what you intended even with their help, and you decide to prematurely leave your body, there’s the question of what happens to the other people in your life that are counting on you to help them finish their lessons. In this situation you are needed and so another spirit comes in to take your place and allows these people to continue with their lesson.

The Council says this doesn’t happen very often, but spirit substitution is a possibility. The spirit enters the same body, other people won’t know there’s been a change, and you won’t remember another spirit has come in to finish your life.

The Council says you always have the choice to complete this life early. When you desire to give up a particular lifetime, you’ll create something in your life that will end it prematurely. You can develop a disease, have an accident, or create a suicide. You can find a way out of your life, but The Council adds that most of the time you try and finish what you originally intended.

Listen to our 7-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Lone Creator and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Why Someone Would Choose to be Born with a Cognitive Disability

This post answers Pakt’s question for The Council about why someone would choose to be born with a cognitive disability. She works in a classroom with students who have these disabilities and read that people with Down Syndrome committed suicide in another lifetime.

The Council says people can choose a cognitive disability just for the experience and to understand what this feels like. In another lifetime if someone they knew had this disability and they didn’t show understanding and love, perhaps they’d choose to experience it in this lifetime and to see if they can bring love into it.

And sometimes people will choose a cognitive disability to teach the people around them about this disability. They do not choose to experience a cognitive disability because they’ve committed suicide in another lifetime.

Pakt says she always thought people choose to experience a cognitive disability so the rest of us can learn from these people as opposed to these people learning a lesson. The Council says these people with disabilities also learn. When we choose different experiences, whether they are happy ones or challenging ones, we also choose the people that will go through this with us because of what they want to learn and we can help them. But The Council says we always want to learn from having the experience of a cognitive difficulty or some other difficulty. There is a learning on everyone’s part.

Listen to this brief 2-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Pakt and the rest of us on why someone would choose to experience a cognitive difficulty in this lifetime, and let us know how you feel about it.

Challenges, Suicide, and Spiritual Growth

This post is inspired by a reader named Cait, who says she thinks about ending her life every day because it’s so painful, and she asks The Council if she’s able to break a pre-birth contract she made in spirit once her incarnation has begun.

Cait begins by asking The Council, what if the path your soul chose to achieve spiritual growth actually inhibits your spiritual growth? And The Council says this is never the case. They say your spirit works out whatever challenges it wants to meet while it’s in the physical body, and while this can seem difficult from a human point of view, your spirit knows exactly why it has chosen what it has chosen and what it is trying to accomplish.

The Council says when you begin to accept you are spirit in a physical body and believe you can learn with less difficulty, and can focus on the way you wish your life to be rather than the way it is, this is the beginning of change. You always have the power to turn your situation around. When you plan in spirit whatever you want to experience, it isn’t written in stone. You create every minute of every day, and so you can create something new.

Cait says she thinks about ending her life every day, and while The Council says there is no judgement in spirit for taking her life, they explain there’s growth she can experience from going through these challenges. And if she chooses to pass on these challenges in this lifetime she’ll be postponing them until she chooses to learn from them in a future lifetime.

Cait comments that her life is harmful to her soul, and The Council replies that her soul will never create circumstances that will harm her spiritually. It creates these situations for her to grow from them, to change them, and to bring love into them.

Cait asks how she can get out of her current challenge without killing herself and The Council advises her to refocus her attention and read as many books as possible on spiritual growth that can teach her who she is as a spiritual being.

Cait finishes her comment by saying her higher self doesn’t appear to care about her or her suffering. And The Council says Cait has no idea the love, caring, and support that spirit has for her if she’ll open up to it, even if she only pretends to feel it at first.

The Council recommends Cait read a book written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel and Pat Rodegast, and the energy from this book will help her turn her life around.

The Council tells Cait she’s come to this feeling of desperation and wanting out on purpose to experience an extreme situation so she can find a better way through this. And The Council says she will find it.

Listen to the entire 11-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear first hand all their guidance for Cait and anyone else who’s having difficulty navigating their current circumstances and is looking for a better way to experience them.
