Suicide: What Happens To The Spirit After Death?
If you’ve ever seen the movie, What Dreams May Come (click here to watch on Amazon) with Robin Williams, you’ll know that there are some theories out there on suicide, some of which are a reflection of the truth, some of which aren’t.
I have personal physical world experiences with those who have passed through deaths of despair. As a medium, I've also had the opportunity to talk with spirit people who have died this way.
All forms of death are in some sense a form of letting go, however, I’ve learned some truths about suicide that are different than some of what is presented out there, so I'd like to share those with you today.
First things first, if you are contemplating suicide, every Spirit I have spoken who has died this way, has told me the same thing -
I regretted it the moment after I did it, but it was already too late.
Yes. Each and every Spirit person who has come forward and the readee has later validated that this person committed suicide, has come back in remorse, regret and yes, acknowledging their life path, but also saying,
I wish I didn’t do it.
This goes for people who have drunk themselves to death, overdoses, and so on - it doesn't mean they are getting punished over there, it just means that there is a sense that they wished they'd thought through another method of carrying on.
In many cases, after they share their story and why they did it, they will also share, in detail, about what has happened since they've crossed-over. And by and large, while the stories vary from individual to individual, I have found there are three main scenarios that happen to a person on the other side, after they die this way.
For the purposes of this article, we are including both drug overdose and addiction here.
What Happens to the Spirit After Death
There are the few possible routes for a Spirit who has died in suicide to take once they reach the Other Side.
option #3. They may not cross-over right away
A person who has committed suicide may not cross-over right away, due to what I mentioned above - feelings of immediate regret and wanting to come back. Many people who take their own lives in a very blatant way, often want to apologize to their loved ones first and get that off their chest, before entirely leaving the earth plane.
Once they say what they need to say and/or are made aware they cannot come back into a body/exist in the way they had before, a person who has taken their own life is ready to cross-over.
If you sense a friend or a family member who has passed this way, you may sense heavy, dark cloak energy around the house, which would indicate they are earthbound and need to cross over. You can actually learn to help your loved one cross over, and it's a very healing experience. I detail the process in my Transitions eBook, if you'd like to try it yourself.
option #2. They may go to a resting place first
The resting place has been shown to me as looking like a garden, a womb or a vacant space where this person is all alone. It is not a punishment here.
This is the place where people go to contemplate their experiences, come to terms with their actions, and release any heavy emotions they are carrying (perhaps the same ones that lead to their death in the first place), before fully crossing.
A person may go here first, the resting place, before fully going into the Light. They can stay here for any period from just a second to years - all depends on their life path. If you haven't seen or heard from your person since their passing (no signs, no nothing), it's likely they are in this resting place. A spirit generally cannot communicate with anyone on Earth during their stay here.
option #1. They cross-over immediately and become spirit guides
I have seen people move immediately into the Afterlife, turn around, and become Spirit Guides for people who are contemplating the same. Kind of like Angels.
They counsel, help uplift, watch over and do their best to guide those just like them, into a new direction in life. Basically, they go on to prevent future suicides. Have you ever seen the movie, It's A Wonderful Life? (Click here to watch on Amazon)
There is a scene where the main character is saved by a mystery man who guides him not to jump off the bridge. Think of it like this.
If this option is going on, you may have already been visited by your person as a light, seen them in a dream, or even seen light apparitions of them, all signs they've crossed the rainbow bridge fully.
Option #1 is absolutely my favorite outcome, but all, eventually work out in time.
Which of these situations may apply to your loved one will depend on their life path and the unique circumstances involved in their situation.
Each person has a uniquely intimate experience both living here on Earth and living in the Spirit world. You know your person better than anyone, so you will ultimately have the best sense of where they are in Spirit at any time.
To understand the specific Afterlife course of your friend or family member, you’d have to find out from the Spirit themselves, contemplate on it a bit, or ask around and see if anyone has sensed them lingering around, seen an apparition, or not seen them at all.
If you've lost someone to suicide, please know that the best course of action is never to take your own life. It may feel like that at times, but it only expands the suffering of the earth. Also know that no matter what, suicide is never anyone's fault, especially not yours. One of the best things you can do for a person who has passed this way is to see their spirit happy, healthy and whole - and send healing to them across the divide. It works.
