I feel a strong need to talk about suicide. There is a belief out there that when people commit suicide, their soul is burning for all of eternity. I believe this has origins from Catholicism. Somehow, it was looked at as committing murder against yourself.
Does that mean if you knowingly approach someone who has threatened to murder you, and they do murder you, have you committed murder against yourself? No one told Jesus about that one. What about if you are suffering physically or mentally and you pray for death to come and wrap you in its arms? Sin is just the same whether you think it in your heart or act on it, right?
I have done readings in which I have brought forth communications with spirits who committed suicide in this life. No one ever mentioned the eternal fires of hell.
I cannot believe a loving God full of compassion and love would see someone suffering and in pain and not welcome them with the unconditional love they may not have understood in their life.
Gods love is unchangeable. It is always there. God doesn't lose sight of us, we lose sight of God.
Each suicide is greeted with an unbelievable amount of love and comfort. After receiving this comfort, they then are made aware of all they left behind. The soul will see the anguish, grief and pain they caused those they left behind. They are able to see this because the love they received crossing over has given them a clear sight, it has mad them whole. They can now experience their own judgement with a clear sight. They see the sadness of the children they left behind, they see the Christmases not celebrated by their families anymore, they see the heartbreak they have left spouses with. They are able to feel the anguish they have caused knowing they cannot undo it. And I believe this is their hell. The afterlife is a beautiful loving place and they are there feeling the guilt of what they have done.
So no, I do not believe they are condemned to a Catholic version of hell. I believe they are held in judgement by their own conscience.
How does a spirit heal from this? I believe they experience all the pain with those left behind. They are with the loved ones as they grieve. When a spouse left behind is crying and screaming "Why did you do this to me?" The spirit is there experiencing that with them. Healing comes when those left behind heal. The spirit wants to help those left behind find happiness again. That spirit will be there for those joys; the children marrying, the parents laughing again, maybe a spouse remarrying. Anything that makes those left behind to feel truly loved and peaceful. The spirit feels the joy and love along with them. And it is the love that heals them.
We are all healed by love.
So remember to send your love to all those who have crossed over into Spirit. They can still feel it.
