Suicide according to Spiritism

This is a complicated issue and brings much suffering to the souls that suffer from it.

Suicide is the act of an individual, deliberately shortening one’s life. Suicides affect people in all walks of life and for various reasons, from depression, financial problems, unrequited loves and so on.

I participate in several online self-help groups.
Many people who committed suicide and survived, report that seeing their bodies flounder, feeling that death was coming, they repented and sought help. This means that it was an extreme act and in reality they did not want to die but to kill the pain, the suffering that existed in them.
Some said they saw low-grade, obsessive spirits who were laughing about them.
When we think about commits suicide, there are often obsessors who encourage us, who speak in our minds, as for example: “Life does not make sense anymore. “I want to disappear.” “I will prove to all that I have courage”

We’re never alone. That is why it is very important that we seek help. If the parents are not able to understand the situation we are going through then there is the neighbor, the pastor, psychiatrist, self-help groups that we can talk about our problems.
The spiritual centers in this case will help us and at the same time, the obsessors.

But as we look at the theme through the spiritist vision let us first analyze what the book of spirits tells us in questions 943 and 944:

943. Where is the disgust of life born, which, without plausible motives, seizes certain individuals?

“Effect of idleness, lack of faith, and also satiety.” “For one who uses his faculties with a useful purpose and according to his natural abilities, the work has nothing arid and life flows faster . He bears the vicissitudes with so much patience and resignation, and works for the sake of the most solid and lasting happiness that awaits him. ”

944. Has man the right to dispose of his life?
“No, God alone assumes this right. Voluntary suicide matters in a transgression of this law. “

We see that according to the spirits the main cause of the suicide is the spiritual idleness. But what would that be? The person who sees no goals in life and does not feel stimulated to seek any useful occupation. Of course this is not a single cause, but we seek to explore the main reasons before in order to study together the problem aspects of great consequence for the being.

Some end life in order to escape the various problems caused by life, perhaps encountering in difficult situations these spirits seek in death the escape of suffering. Kardec also seeks to answer this question:

Suicide is one of the most desperate acts that someone may commit.

When I was a teenager I tried myself once. The second time I didn´t  have the courage.
Today am very glad about that.
The reason that led me to this act has to do with the death of my relatives and the hard life I led.

The thought of suicide accompanies me to this day. But because I have been studying Spiritism for some time, I know that pain or difficulties will not end with death. I also know the consequences of this act.
Today I thank that friendly voice that spoke in my thoughts: “Leave it to tomorrow … Today is not your day to die”. This was when I was 17 years old. On December 26th I will complete 42.
With each passing day I thank the universe for being alive and being able to complete my task that was competed before my reincarnation.
How about you? You have a mission, too. Do not let your life run out before you find out. Do not miss the opportunity that was given to you.
Sorry to tell you, but we are immortal spirits. Death is definitely an illusion. If we end our life now, we will have to return many times with the marks of the consequences of suicide.
So we’d better take advantage of the now.
We can not go back to the past, but we can always recommence a new chapter in the book of life.

What happens after the Suicide? I mean, afterlife?

In the next few Article I will try to translate a serie of Videos from Spiritism Doctrine according to Allan Kardec, and othe Spiritualist views

Many greetings, miss Froggy


 

Suicide and its consequences according to Spiritism

This is a complicated issue and brings much suffering to the souls that suffer from it.

Suicide is the act of an individual, deliberately shortening one’s life. Suicides affect people in all walks of life and for various reasons, from depression, financial problems, unrequited loves and so on.

But as we look at the theme through the spiritist vision let us first analyze what the book of spirits tells us in questions 943 and 944:

943. Where is the disgust of life born, which, without plausible motives, seizes certain individuals?

“Effect of idleness, lack of faith, and also satiety.” “For one who uses his faculties with a useful purpose and according to his natural abilities, the work has nothing arid and life flows faster . He bears the vicissitudes with so much patience and resignation, and works for the sake of the most solid and lasting happiness that awaits him. ”
944. Has man the right to dispose of his life?
“No, God alone assumes this right. Voluntary suicide matters in a transgression of this law. “

We see that according to the spirits the main cause of the suicide is the spiritual idleness. But what would that be? The person who sees no goals in life and does not feel stimulated to seek any useful occupation. Of course this is not a single cause, but we seek to explore the main reasons before in order to study together the problem aspects of great consequence for the being.

Some end life in order to escape the various problems caused by life, perhaps encountering in difficult situations these spirits seek in death the escape of suffering. Kardec also seeks to answer this question:

946. And of suicide whose purpose is to flee, who commits it because of the miseries and disappointments of this world?
“Poor Spirits, who do not have the courage to endure the miseries of existence! God helps those who suffer and not those who lack energy and courage. The tribulations of life are proofs or atonements. Blessed are those who endure them without complaining, for they will be rewarded! But woe to those who hope for the salvation of what in their wickedness they call chance, or fortune! Chance or fortune, in order to use their language, may, in effect, favor them for a moment, but to make them feel cruelly the emptiness of these words. “

In this response the spirits show us that NO suffering escapes from God and He does not delay to help the being to go through the necessary adversity. We know from the law of action and reaction that suffering spirits spy on some kind of lack or pass a necessary test of spiritual upliftment. The greater the probation, the greater the advance that the spirit will obtain in concluding this stage.

Thus we realize the enormous delay that suicide causes to the evolutionary process of the creature. In fact, in addition to “stopping time” in spiritual progression, the individual commits a crime to the law of preservation and survival that we all bring within us.

Such arguments are presented in the answer to the following question:

950. What to think of him who kills himself, hoping to get to a better life sooner?
“Another madness! Let him do good, and he will certainly be there, for by killing himself he delays his entrance into a better world, and will have to ask him to be allowed to return, to conclude the life to which he has ended under the influence of a false idea. A fault, in any case, never opens the sanctuary of the elect to anyone. “

Now we realize how much suicide can be harmful to spiritual evolution and those who seek in this act the escape of their pain end up enlarging them beyond the grave.

Indirect suicide

It is called indirect suicide, the act of a being to make oneself a conscious evil that can lead to diseases and even death. An example is the act of smoking. Everyone now knows the harm that causes them to smoke cigarettes, and whoever does it has the equivalent of an ordinary suicide. Another example is André Luiz’s work, Nosso Lar de Chico Xavier. In her André Luiz is accused of suicide because its death was due to the excesses alimentary so that its perispiritual liver got the mark of this imbalance. There are other types of indirect suicides, which are not the act of killing yourself immediately and purposefully, but rather of doing something that can bring you energetic harm capable of compromising your physical and perispiritual organization.

What happens to the suicidal spirit?

As we know in Spiritism each case is a case and there are numerous factors that can lead to a different conclusion for each specific situation. I will list here some of the possibilities not being all possible but most commonly told in spiritist literatures and in mediumistic meetings.

By committing suicide a spirit lowers its vibrational field automatically due to the crime committed against its own life. This leads to all kinds of sensations of lower levels and can cause in the spirit incredible feelings of guilt, since in the spiritual world the conscience of the being has a voice much more active than in the corporal world the suicide can suffer for many years of a guilt that corrodes His psyche leading to the brink of spiritual madness.

There are also cases of these spirits being so out of touch that they end up being easy prey for energetic vampires. Dark spirits who take advantage of wandering spirits in suffering to suck their residual energies post-disincarnate (see the work “Our Home” from André Luiz).

There is also a place called the valley of the suicides, where energetically the spirits who committed such act attracted each other. The medium Yvonne Pereira, in her book “Memories of a Suicide”, speaks of the Suicide Valley. There is news in mediumistic meetings that the group of spirits responsible for the rescue in this spiritual field called Legion of the Servants of Mary. There is now confirmed news in some mediumistic meetings that the valley had been undone because of the spiritual redevelopments (a type of energy cleansing that began to be made slowly in the spiritual regions close to the crust due to the arrival of the moment of elevation of planet Earth to a world of regeneration). Whether it is confirmed or not is known that there are still several regions on the threshold where suffering spirits, including suicides gather together due to sympathy of thoughts.

When reincarnating many suicides come with the organ that was attacked by indirect suicide marked, this explains many birth defects. They may be spirits who in previous lives have committed some kind of excess that has caused them a perispiritual mark of such depth that even in another life the effects of this action are perceived in the form of health disorders presented since childhood.

How to avoid suicide or that a loved one has such tendencies?

Kardec responds by saying that work, that is, a useful occupation that brings you the satisfaction of being useful to the world and to yourself. To those who have any kind of mental disorder, be it depression or any kind of psychological problems, you should always seek professional help, since medicine on earth has no effect at all. Remember, life goes on and suicide will not save you from problems but rather increase them!

Look for friends, family, who have important role in helping to recover the emotional balance of the individual. Walk in faith, try to be grateful to the things you have, have you stopped to think that many people in Africa for example have MUCH less than you and always seek to survive?

It’s true that it’s a complicated situation but God is by your side! To brothers who have friends who have tried suicide or have serious tendencies to this I say: do not forsake them! Continue to guide them and seek to help them find something that can save them from themselves.

Finally, I want to ask God to support the hearts of all those who have committed suicide and find themselves in pain because of the unthinking act against their lives, that the light is made in the life of each one and that they can repair their error. I hope the article has been helpful, although a brief summary hopefully helps in the discussions and debates regarding the subject! A lot of peace!

Medium: Divaldo Franco:

Whatever the reason that the individual dazed look to escape the physical life, commits a heinous crime.
Not being the author of life, do not have the right to stop.
Suicide is cataloged as a heinous crime alongside wars, but also the criminal abortion, euthanasia, the death penalty.

Thus, when the individual chooses to destroy life, even when under deep depression, it is in his unconscious a very large rebellion.

Got against.
and somehow, the individual is trying to kill another, in so-called love affairs.
And it is impossible to destroy the one who made him unhappy, invests against himself, trying to interrupt the life cycle, to wake up in the afterlife with the sufferings of the early flow of the sum of pain and afflictions due to his act of defiance.

Suicide is also an act of moral cowardice, and deep ingratitude. Ingratitude for those who stay for those who love him, for those who devote themselves and often skip the conflict that the patient is always victim.
Thanks to the advances of psychic doctrines and study take place nowadays about depression, it appears that at the root of any act of this nature, there is the disorder of depressive behaviorwhich clarifies but not justified.
Because the very depression is ongoing the phenomenon of the law of cause and effect.

If the individual amount to God through the prayer, through the practice of good, the overcoming of tormenting passions, of course it will contribute greatly to his mental health, his emotional health, his peace, preventing suicide.
Suicide? Never!

In 1939 my sister committed suicide.
She was a temperamental young. married, she discovered that her husband cheated on her with another woman.
Strong-willed, she went to the other woman and after a rubbing, feeling ashamed, she opted for suicide.
It took years, I was young and she appeared to me, all deformed screaming like crazy and saying, “I wanted to run away, but I did not get out of where I was
Years and years passed, in 1972, when my mother was disembodying (dying), passing through agonizing moments, she closed her eyes, held my hand and said excitedly: “My son, Nair, my suicidal sister, is here and she’s saying: Come mother, come quickly to comfort me. Come and decrease my bitterness. Come and help me, for I did not longer take any more suffering on this eternity

 

33 years suffering because of her rebellion. So my mother told me “I‘m going, my son, but then I’ll be back to take care of you and your sister.
We were the last two children who were alive. Smiling, I replied her: “ Mommy, do not come back. You suffered so much on earth The spirits tell me that they just waiting for you to be immensely happy.”

Then she said me: “Son, what the happiness of a mother, if not to look after their children? I’ll take care of Nair, and then I will return.
I saw my mother disembodied, leave the physical body and saw when the spirits enveloped her and my menthor Joana de Angelis said: “thank your mother, who carried you for 86 years”

SUICIDE – A SPIRIT VISION

Ending one’s life, giving up all possibilities, for a possible peace, is the path that many follow, consciously or not;
But instead of showing a solution, it becomes a long path of pain, suffering, and deliverance.

Francisco Aranda Gabilan

Material extracted from his book Between Sin and Evolution

It is striking and even terrifying that we have to call the subject of “current theme” suicide, whether voluntary or indirect. But, unfortunately, it is current: it is a growing evil, striking all humanity.

Its occurrence has always been constant, since the remote past and in all social and ethnic segments, even children. There are reports of suicides, both individual and collective, in various indigenous cultures.

Hence its actuality. In fact, it is not for another reason that the subject has been the object of concern of anthropologists, sociologists, physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, in all branches of science of Being – and, of course, Spiritists, always attentive to the wounds of humanity.

An example of this is the number of lectures, debates and articles that ask the spiritists about the subject, including the number that always appear on the same subject. In other words, if there are questions, it is because the subject needs a broad approach.

1. How do Spirits and Spiritism consider suicide?

A: Using only the teachings of the spirits contained in the Codification, suicide is regarded as a crime in the eyes of God (Heaven and Hell, chapter 5), and which matters in a transgression of the Divine Law (Book of Spirits, question 944) and Always constitutes a lack of resignation and submission to the will of the Creator (idem, perg. 953-a). Thus “man has no right to dispose of life, since it is only up to God to remove him from the captivity of the earth when he sees fit. The suicide is the prisoner who escapes from prison, before the sentence is served; When arrested again, is more severely treated. The same is true of the suicidal man who thinks he is escaping the miseries of the present and immersed in greater misfortunes “(Gospel according to Spiritism, chapter XXVII, item 71)

2. Why do spirits deal with this matter with certain constancy?

A: Firstly, as we have already said, because it is always a current theme, since suicide has been a constant mark of our civilization; Second, which is the most important: the doctrine of the Spirits, has an absolute comforting character: through the mediumistic fact (in the words of the very cult Herculano Pires, the mediumistic fact is literally a second resurrection) the spirit returns to the flesh, not the one that left In the tomb, but that of the medium who offers him, in a gesture of love, the opportunity to return to the hearts he left in the world (Mediumship, Chapter 5), it is permissible for the suicides themselves to tell us that they did not die and claim Not only did they not solve the problem that led them to the extreme act, as they are still “alive” and, in short, with two problems: the old and the new, generated by the violation of the laws of Life. Thus, Spiritism works preventively so that people know their responsibilities in performing acts that may aggravate their future situation and not to condemn them to eternal martyrdom.

3. What are the causes that lead to suicide?

A: Unbelief, lack of faith, doubt, materialistic ideas. In short, to believe that Nothing is the future, as if Nothingness could offer consolation, as if it were a remedy for supposedly abbreviating suffering, a belief that, in fact, constitutes moral cowardice.

4. What are the consequences of suicide for the Spirit?

A: In the first place, it must be made clear that suicide does not erase the offense committed, but instead, instead of one there will be two; Secondly, that the Spirit, when realizing the act committed, finds that nothing was worth, being literally disappointed with the effects obtained and that were not the sought ones, because it makes sure that life is not extinguished and that it continues more real than ever . Thirdly, and quite painful, suicide aggravates all sufferings: “After prolonged torture, in the purgatory regions, often after several failed attempts at rebirth, they regain the body of flesh, but carry in them deficiencies of the spiritual body, whose harmony Misfired At this stage, they exhibit retarded brains or obscure nervous diseases, “according to Emmanuel in Laws of Love, chapter VI.

5. So there is no hope of recovery for the suicide bomber?

A: Of course there is – total! God is Love and He bestows upon all Creatures the highest expression of His Infinite Goodness: the possibility that the Beings always evolve incessantly; Allows existences to succeed by offering the infinite opportunities for readjustment and reform; And this is possible through the most effective vehicle of the Law of Evolution: reincarnation.

Therefore, the relatives of the suicide of yesterday or today are not exasperated, on the contrary, keep alive the hope that it is possible the remission of faults and that the Father of Mercy will provide the means to make the author of the extreme act itself Recognize the Eternal and indestructible Spirit, and that calm, resignation, and faith will be the safest condoms against self-destructive ideas. It will not be too much to repeat to them: God is Infinite Kindness and therefore does not allow His Creatures to suffer indefinitely and that this suffering can be shortened more quickly through sincere and loving prayers of all who want to restore Good.
