Your Soul’s Plan: The Deeper Spiritual Meaning of Suicide

Recommended Posts

RobSchwartz    0

When difficult or traumatic experiences occur in our lives, we naturally wonder, “Why did this happen? What does it mean?” Often, such experiences may appear not to have any particular meaning; they may seem to be nothing more than purposeless suffering. Yet, in my years as a spiritual author and teacher, I have found that not only are our greatest challenges rich with meaning and purpose, but also that very often we ourselves planned those experiences before we were born. I explored this premise in detail in my first book, Your Soul’s Plan, and I do so again in my new book, Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born. In this article I will share with you one of the most profoundly healing pieces of information I have ever discovered in my work.

 

First, a word about my methodology. In both books I interviewed people who had experienced common life challenges like physical illness, the death of a loved one, addiction, or mental illness. Those individuals then had sessions with gifted mediums and channels in which I asked Spirit, “Was this experience planned before birth, and if so, why?” In my books I present all the wisdom that then came forward. My intentions are to help people see the deeper meaning of their life challenges and, in so doing, heal from them. It’s important to understand that painful experiences can catalyze profound healing for our souls if we, the incarnate personalities, respond to those challenges with love (including self-love) and an open heart, and if we learn the lessons offered by these experiences.

 

In the Suicide chapter in Your Soul’s Gift, I share the story of Carolyn, whose only child Cameron suicided shortly after he graduated from high school. Carolyn and I had a channeling session in which we spoke with Jeshua (Jesus). Jeshua began by telling us that suicide is never planned prior to birth as a certainty, but it is often planned as a possibility and sometimes as a high probability, as was the case with Cameron. In other words, Cameron knew that he was taking on so much in this lifetime that a suicide was likely.

 

One of the difficulties Cameron had while he in body was that chronic depression blocked his capacity to feel his love for his family. Jeshua tells us:

 

“While physically alive he could not feel his love for them anymore. When dead he realized the full extent of his love, and from the soul’s perspective this was a great breakthrough. The suicide forced change upon Cameron, and in his case it worked out well. It was a turning point for his soul.”

 

This is a radical yet powerfully healing perspective. Our society views suicide as perhaps the ultimate failure, and yet Jeshua tells us that from the soul’s perspective it can be a blessing. As souls our highest intention is to give and receive love. While in body Cameron was unable to feel, and therefore unable to express, the great love he held in his heart for his family. Now, in the nonphysical realm, he feels that love intensely, and for his soul that feeling is a triumph.

 

In addition to viewing suicide as a failure, we also tend to see it as a sin. Yet in the conversation with Carolyn, Jeshua tells us:

 

“From a spiritual perspective, there are no acts that are absolutely wrong or sinful. The deepest act of self-betrayal can lead someone into a state of inner clarity that may help forever. The darkest point may become the starting point for a new direction toward light. You see, spiritual evolution does not proceed in a linear fashion. It uses the polarities of light and dark to create dynamics and change.

 

In saying this I wish to take away the traditional judgment about suicide, that it is the gravest sin. God or Spirit does not feel that way. God has the greatest compassion for people who take their lives in despair. There is always help available for them on the other side. They are never abandoned.”

 

Through the medium, we also spoke directly with Cameron, who confirmed that indeed he was not abandoned. Upon returning to spirit, he was greeted by loving guides, who nurtured and supported him through a process of emotional healing and through some very difficult conversations with Carolyn which occurred in her sleep state. Importantly, and contrary to what some religions teach, Cameron told us that he was never punished in any way for having taken his life. He did not go to some sort of “Hell,” nor did he wander endlessly in a limbo state. Instead, he briefly experienced some confusion and disorientation when he first crossed over (as he had been confused and disoriented when he suicided), but he quickly saw his guides, who escorted him “Home.”

 

And what of Carolyn’s healing? Since Carolyn has no memory of her pre-birth plan - just as most of us don’t - she quite naturally felt that she had failed Cameron. She was filled with guilt and self-blame, wondering what she could have done to prevent her son’s suicide. In response to those feelings, Jeshua shares with us one of the most important, startling, and powerful pieces of information I’ve come across in my research. He tells us, “Every suicide preventable by outside forces was indeed prevented.” What he meant is that if the suicidal person has the slightest openness to changing their mind, the Universe will stage an intervention. It could be something as simple as a bird flying by and distracting the person, or something as dramatic as an angel assuming human form and physically interceding. If you have lost a loved one to suicide, know this: There was literally nothing you could have done to save them.

 

You are not to blame.

 

You are not at fault.

 

You did not fail them.

 

Therein rests your healing. Therein lies your peace.

Hi Robert,

 

Thanks for taking the time to share with our community. I believe that Hashem alone is the only one that can peer into our soul and judge our actions. So, through the power of the Holy Spirit I pray to Jesus to ask Hashem to forgive Cameron actions during his life.

 

Those individuals then had sessions with gifted mediums and channels in which I asked Spirit, “Was this experience planned before birth, and if so, why?”

Can you tell me who are the mediums that channeled your conversation with Jesus? Are they Christian? Jew? Muslim? Hindu? Buddhist? Zoroastrian?

 

Do you believe that trust and obedience are what everyone owes God in view of future judgment?

 

Ecclesiastes 12

 

12:12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them.

 

There is no end to the making of many books,

 

and much study is exhausting to the body.

 

12:13 Having heard everything, I have reached this conclusion:

 

Fear God and keep his commandments,

 

because this is the whole duty of man.

 

12:14 For God will evaluate every deed,

 

including every secret thing, whether good or evil.

Jesus said to his Apostles if you believe in the Gospel and you are baptized, then you are saved from damnation. Did Cameron believe in the Gospel? Was Cameron baptized?

 

Mark 16

 

16:15 “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

 

16:16 The one who believes and is baptized will be saved, but the one who does not believe will be condemned.

Despair is something I can understand. Was Cameron sacrificing his life for the sake of others? Or was Cameron's suicide a selfish act? Or was his capacity for judging his actions significantly diminished?

 

Job 6

 

6:8 “Oh that my request would be realized,

 

and that God would grant me what I long for!

 

6:9 And that God would be willing to crush me,

 

that he would let loose his hand

 

and kill me.

 

6:10 Then I would yet have my comfort,

 

then I would rejoice,

 

in spite of pitiless pain,

 

for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.

 

6:11 What is my strength, that I should wait?

 

and what is my end,

 

that I should prolong my life?

 

6:12 Is my strength like that of stones?

 

or is my flesh made of bronze?

 

6:13 Is not my power to help myself nothing,

 

and has not every resource been driven from me?

Are you stating that God does not know the future outcome of each one of us before it happens?

 

Psalms 139

 

139:11 If I were to say, “Certainly the darkness will cover me,

 

and the light will turn to night all around me,"

 

139:12 even the darkness is not too dark for you to see,

 

and the night is as bright as day;

 

darkness and light are the same to you.

 

139:13 Certainly you made my mind and heart;

 

you wove me together in my mother’s womb.

 

139:14 I will give you thanks because your deeds are awesome and amazing.

 

You knew me thoroughly;

 

139:15 my bones were not hidden from you,

 

when I was made in secret

 

and sewed together in the depths of the earth.

 

139:16 Your eyes saw me when I was inside the womb.

 

All the days ordained for me

 

were recorded in your scroll

 

before one of them came into existence.

How was Cameron's fruitful with the life he had been given from God?

 

Genesis 1

 

1:26 Then God said, “Let us make

 

humankind in our image, after our likeness, so they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move 52 on the earth.”

 

1:27 God created humankind in his own image,

 

in the image of God he created them,

 

male and female he created them.

 

1:28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply! Fill the earth and subdue it! Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every creature that moves on the ground."

You state something that is goes against the teaching of the Gospel of Jesus. There are many acts of rebellion against God and mankind. These can be forgiven if one asks for forgiveness. But, Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit is unforgivable.

 

Matthew 22

 

12:22 Then they brought to him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute. Jesus healed him so that he could speak and see.

 

12:23 All the crowds were amazed and said, “Could this one be the Son of David?”

 

12:24 But when the Pharisees heard this they said, “He does not cast out demons except by the power of Beelzebul, the ruler of demons!”

 

12:25 Now when Jesus realized what they were thinking, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is destroyed, and no town or house divided against itself will stand.

 

12:26 So if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?

 

12:27 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? For this reason they will be your judges.

 

12:28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has already overtaken you.

 

12:29 How else can someone enter a strong man’s house and steal his property, unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can thoroughly plunder the house.

 

12:30 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.

 

12:31 For this reason I tell you, people will be forgiven for every sin and blasphemy, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.

 

12:32 Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven. But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
