One of the most interesting ways to learn about the spiritual side of life is by researching NDEs, or near death experiences. Many who die and come back to life return with incredible insight, even if they didn’t believe in life after death before.
This person, who had a NDE after liver failure, learned many things about the spiritual side of life, including suicide. She said, “…if you have unresolved issues, they do not go away just because you are dead. So if you hate yourself and commit suicide, you still hate yourself and are dead. It really is not much different than just closing your eyes. Your problems are still there. However, you are able to think more clearly. Your brain is fresh and alleviated of any damage, tiredness, illness, age, etc.”
As noted in number five from this list, one good outcome of people who have a NDE and survive a suicide attempt is that they realize they are loved and special, and it instills an importance of life and making the most of challenges. Also, they often return with a sense that they must help other people realize that suicide is not the answer or a way out.
All of this is consistent with what I’ve observed about suicide through past life regression.
Through exploration of my own and others’ past lives, I’ve perceived Japanese samurai suicide known as seppuku, a kamikaze pilot suicide bombing, self-inflicted death by the sword after losing a battle in Europe, jumping from a building due to financial ruin during the stock market crash of 1929, taking a bullet to the head after a ballet injury ended a career, purposely overdosing on drugs after spiraling out of control from drug addiction, driving a car into a tree when drunk after a failed marriage and career, and others.
I’ve also observed the aftermath of these lifetimes; suicide solves nothing and you need to come back again, often in similar challenging circumstances, to work things out.
