Suicide – Where do their Spirits Go?

suicide spirits

Suicide is sometimes perceived as the only way out by people who are very depressed or coping with extreme illness or pain. Family and friends may be left with unanswered questions – why did this person commit suicide? Are they in a good place now? What happens to the person’s soul who commits suicide?

Most major religions see suicide as a sin (Jainism and some cases in Hinduism do not view suicide as a sin – according to Wikipedia). But what is left of the soul afterward? Does it wander the earth plane forever lost? Does it work out it’s issues in purgatory before being allowed to move on?

Is it like Albert Brooks’ movie Defending Your Life where you get a life review before getting your judgment? While I don’t have all the answers, I can tell you about the spirits I have connected with from my own experience as a Medium.

About five years ago, a girlfriend of mine took her own life. She was bipolar, struggling with recent memories that had surfaced regarding sexual abuse, and had chosen to isolate herself from her family.

She lived in an apartment that overlooked the bus stop where I caught the bus to work. It was shortly after her death – a few weeks maybe. I remember looking up at her place and wondered to myself where her spirit was.

Then, suddenly, I heard very clearly in my one ear – “I’m right here”. But of course, no one was standing there. It was her spirit speaking to me.

Later I tried to connect with her to see if she needed help. She hadn’t crossed into the light yet. In fact, she was in this weird in between place. I say weird because it was like she was between two walls of energy.

I could see her. I could talk to her. And at the same time, she was in a different type of energy or in a different dimension of some sort. She told me that there were some things she had to finish before she could move on.

There were people she needed to visit and have some sort of closure with. One was her father, the other was her brother. When she was alive, she felt they didn’t believe her. Whatever it was she needed to do was not shared with me.

I didn’t connect with her again for a few months. And then, she came by briefly. She was no longer in the “in-between” place. She had crossed fully into the light. Her energy had shifted as well and she felt lighter.

When I connect to those spirits of people who committed suicide, it doesn’t seem to matter what religious background they came from. The spirit comes through, sometimes saying they are sorry, sometimes saying they are much happier now.

Some of them tell us about how they still had to work on themselves. It seems that our spiritual progression does not stop when we are no longer incarnate. That goes for everyone, not just suicides.

Some of them cross into the light right away. Some of them linger for a while. But none of them are condemned or damned. Pure love knows no judgment. There is only acceptance.

    That sounds right to me; feels accurate. I always had problems with the idea that spirit would condemn us for ending our present situation if it became unbearable. To each their own path and decisions is my view. It seems only right that growth continues as we are seeking the light for the most part; even if that includes seeking to go “ahead of our time”.

  3. Hi Selina, I was touched by your story because I’ve experienced this as well. Thanks for sharing your story.

    Is it true that those who do take their own lives still have to come down to earth to face the exact same thing for another 7 lives?

    • admin says:

      I haven’t heard that one before! I don’t believe it is true as the spirits who have come through who had taken their lives do not indicate that.

    I find it so hard to believe that a person who commits suicide is yet again to endure untold suffering, of which I read about. This is something not done lightly, and anyone who chooses this must be in a incredibly unfortunate state of mind. It may not be the best solution for solving life’s difficulties, but if that is what the victim feels, and even more so, if contemplating for a long time, and realizing implications once completed, after much introspection, who are we to say they were wrong?

    For some this life is just too much. They’ve had it, and have decided it’s time to check out. Of course there will be some serious issues to deal with, but that is how the spirit evolves, either here, or there. There are lessons to learn, and this is a big one. The pain of those left behind etc. The suicider will feel all that many times over. This is the worst part I think. But the act is only one in a life that may have brought good to many.

      I like your ideas and agree. If someone commits suicide, they are in unbearable pain and misery. (Whether mentally or physically)

    Thanks for this story now i am a bit relieved because recently i lost my friend and truly speaking i had become a little restless thinking about her.

    Sad story but thank you for sharing story. 90% of people who kill themselves are mentally ill, Suicide isn’t a
    random decision acted on impulse. Most
    Suicidal people are usually that way for a
    VERY long time. Something may trigger the
    decision to finally do it…and get it the heck
    over with, but all in all the generel feeling
    that life is awful and you are simply sick
    and tired of living can go on for a while. As
    for the friends and family that everybody is
    supposed to take into Consideration of
    hurting, much of the time loved ones are
    busy and wrapped up within they’re own
    lives and problems. And have no real
    understanding, concern or patience for
    you…or why you feel you’re life is oh so
    Terrible. Especially when you have all of
    the things that Society insist and tells you
    are supposed to make you happy. Friends
    only like you the best when you’re
    smiling…then when you kill yourself they
    act surprised, shocked, heartbroken and
    put upon. Saying how they didn’t see it
    coming or any of the warning signs, but
    what an amazingly beautiful individual you
    were who they had all loved all along and
    Blah, Blah, Blah di da. Because when
    you’re Suicidal that’s not the case. Most of
    the red flags before a Suicide go
    completely ignored. And if they cared so
    much why didn’t they notice or try to help?
    PERIOD! Not just the ones who take
    matters into they’re own hands. People
    don’t cut out the time for other people’s
    pain. Nope. They’re too busy and caught
    up in they’re own. So all of us can feel
    really alone at times. Add depression and
    despair into the pot…mix it all together and you might just
    make yourself the perfect recipe for a
    Suicide! If you don’t understand….just shut
    up, leave you’re condolences and move on.
    Otherwise don’t judge another person for
    something you haven’t experienced or
    been through.

    • Kris Key says:

      I agree 100% with your ideas. People are too involved with themselves to take the time to notice someone who is suffering.

      • Selina says:

        Hi Kris,

        Thanks for your comments. Sometimes the person who is depressed hides their depression or others may not realize how serious the problem is, but that doesn’t mean that people don’t care. Many of my clients who have lost someone through suicide feel guilt wondering if they could have done something to stop it, if only they had known how serious it was or what to do. If a person starts to have suicidal thoughts or is very depressed, they need professional support to get through it. It’s difficult to navigate these kinds of emotions on one’s own.

        Many kind blessings,

    You’ll never know how someone else feels not depression but something that triggers life is just not worth it like someone telling you I don’t want to be seen with you because you look gay even though they are your “best friend”or you loose your job because your friend who always played tricks on you reported you for doing the same

  11. sade says:

    I have been thinking about this for awhile and reading your article brings me a sense if peace. Suicide is not an easy decision. Its one that takes so much thought. I hope that reading your article brings others peace of mind like it has given me.

  12. Greg says:

    I can understand someone wanting to end their life if they are suffering in constant physical pain, chronically ill, all alone in the world, or homeless without any family.
    I don’t care how many brownie points you get from St Peter at The Pearly Gates.
    Why stick around for that??
    What I can’t understand are these young kids who are leaving us way too soon.
    They have their whole life in front of them with so much yet to contribute.
    It makes no sense to me at all.

  13. Ash says:

    Personally, I have nothing left to live for. I’m in pain all if the time. I have nothing. My husband is emotionally and physically abusive. Constantly sleeping with women and texting them in front of me. Kicking me out of the house for the weekend to have sex with some smart, beautiful, and younger woman. He tells me how awful I am, he screams at me whenever I cry. He gets pissed off that I don’t want threesomes, and that I just want him (We used to have one every week with a different woman). My life is hell. I could have been the perfect wife for someone, giving endless love and care. I ruined my life by marrying a man that no one agreed I should marry. I was 18 and stupid, now I’m 24 and crying everyday. I tried to make him happy but I will never be enough no matter what I do or change. The only thing stopping me from suicide is the pain my family will endure. Will they be okay? I need to go away.

    Marriage: 6 years
    Age: 24
    Husband: 33

    • Selina says:

      Hi Ash,

      Please seek immediate help from a psychotherapist or other mental health professional. Suicide is NOT an answer to your problems. There is always another way to cope and improve your life circumstances. I can tell you that almost every single person who comes for a mediumship reading because they have a loved one who committed suicide is in great emotional pain, often feeling guilty that they could not help them. Go get help now to get out of your mental anguish and life circumstances.

      With kindest respect and blessings,

  14. Jackie says:

    Hey Ash,
    Please leave that man! You don’t deserve to die, you deserve a new life! I’m sure you have a friend who would let you crash on their couch, or family that will give you a place to stay until you get on your feet. Do not kill yourself over that loser. You’re only 24, you have time to make different choices and start fresh. Good luck and keep us posted

  15. Annie Walters says:

    Hi! This article has been very helpful especially to me now. I just learned of a close friend’s passing a few days ago and it happened last year. I’ve been crying for days now because I cannot imagine he could do it. It was a tragic way of dying since it’s a murder-suicide. I really, really hope and pray that his soul is okay. I’ve lighted a candle and offered a prayer for him. In this case, where do you think is his soul right now?

    Thank you in advance for the answer.
