There is a topic I feel very strongly about as a Medium and that is where someone has taken their own life.
Growing up in Ireland there is an awful lot of stigma surrounding people who take their own lives and where they end up as a result.
It is my belief that when people die then they may stick around or they may Passover completely to the spirit world.
As someone who felt the exact moment my Grandad passed away and having felt him bring me home from Glasgow to Wicklow, I know that spirit can contact you from the moment they pass. My Grandad was a brave age and it was his time. He was ready. Not all people who pass to spirit are that free of this life that they can pass over so easily and they may stick around in like a limbo state, if you like. For a lot of these spirits they have either not be ready for their own passing, have not been ready or they have a huge guilt which makes them unable to move on to spirit to face what they have done in this life. A sort of Karma if you will.
This leads me to people who have for whatever reason had enough and they taken their own life. Having had the privilege of channeling a lot of messages from people who have taken their own life, they all have a similar story. They all want to say sorry for the pain and hurt they have caused in their passing but for everyone of them it has been exactly the right thing for them.
We all have bad days but depression is an illness, just like Cancer and in some cases that depression is an awful lot worse than others. Yes life can throw curve balls at us, some of us will sink and some of us will swim. But for some people they are fighting their own minds. It takes every inch of strength they have just to get up and get dressed. Their illness makes them fight themselves. For others, to the outside world they are happy and content. Just because someone smiles doesn't mean they are happy...
So the next time you think that someone has taken their own lives, think again... Their illness (just like Cancer) Depression has taken their life. These people aren't sent to some mythical hell for all eternity or whatever your religion tells you. The Hell these people suffer was in their own minds and it was here on earth but they are free now. While they deeply regret hurting their loved ones they did what was right for them.
So while I would never encourage anyone to take their own life, neither would I condemn them for what they did. Life isn't easy. Life is tough. But the spirit lives on free.
