Indirect Suicide

By Geraldo Goulart

Whenever we hear comments about suicide, it comes to mind the picture of an extreme, violent, abrupt death that, in fact, is what characterizes a suicide based on someone’s desire to end immediately their own life. However, the Spiritist Doctrine let us know that this extreme act is a serious error because the only life with which the suicide ends is merely that of his physical body. On this subject, for those who wish to know a little more, we recommend reading the books “THE MARTYRDOM OF SUICIDES” (written by Almerindo Martins de Castro) and also “MEMOIRS OF A SUICIDE” (by Yvonne A. Pereira) both edited by Brazilian Spiritist Federation.

Notwithstanding the false impression that the suicide has gotten rid of what has been tormenting him, suicide has more scope in the Spiritual Plan than that considered here on Earth. Studying the Spiritist Doctrine, we are informed that the unfortunates who commit violent suicide have, in the True Life dimension, a greater burden of suffering, but it is not about this aspect that we wish to reflect, but rather to consider the aspects about indirect suicides (or unconscious suicides) regularly practiced and that may surprise us when we arrive at the Spiritual Fatherland.

In the book “OUR HOME”, André Luiz (Spirit and author of Chico Xavier’s fraternal narrative) tells that as he regained consciousness after his passing, he heard a faint but perfectly noticeable voice calling him: “suicide, suicide… “and he was astonished and wondering if that would be him. After all, he had not committed suicide, and if he had died (he was alive, and very alive, he thought) it would have been because of acquired syphilis. However, sometime later, after a medical visit to a treatment room, he learned that syphilis, associated with other factors such as alcohol use, had generated a cancerous stage that it had damaged his kidneys and liver. Andre, though battered by the evils that caused his discarnation, but lucid enough, acknowledged that by his own fault he had assaulted his physical apparatus by accelerating his physical death. He who had been a doctor on earth had not considered such possibilities!

After careful reading of the Spiritist literature crossed with some biblical passages, we learn that we expose ourselves to daily situations that subject us to the condition of unconscious suicides. Let’s look at some:

  1. Excess of diet and drink (overeating and continued ingestion of alcoholics that make the gastric tract vulnerable and affect the kidneys and liver).
  2. Verbal Intemperance (the feeling of anger, anger, generates negative forces for the one who feeds it and strengthens it in free and repeated aggressions against others and throws excessive doses of adrenaline into the bloodstream).
  3. Nervous imbalance (evidence of poor mental process).
  4. Sexual excesses (degenerating vital energies whose absence can bring the individual closer to madness)
  5. Ingestion of harmful elements such as drugs (alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, crack, LSD, heroin, cocaine and derivatives).
  6. Immoderate use of medication – or its abstinence – (excessive doses in relation to the prescription or ignore the prescription by own decision believing that the doctor did not know how to analyze your problem).
  7. Carelessly crossing roads and / or exposing yourself to risky situations such as not using a walkway or waiting for a traffic light, which is considered suicide even by road legislation.
  8. Drive recklessly taking the risk of killing and dying.
  9. Unprotected sex with strangers.

Although most of the described actions may provide pleasure, they should be avoided as they may be – somewhat – contributing to the self-extermination of the person who practices them. Paul’s statement is worth remembering: “Everything is permitted to me, but not everything suits me. Everything is permitted to me but I will not let anything rule” (Corinthians 6:12). In what suits us because it is necessary for the maintenance of material life, we must observe the equilibrium so as not to strike the fine line that isolates us from the moment of death while we still need to remain in physical health.

We end with the warning from our Sublime Master that we pray and watch because through prayer thanking the blessed gift of life that is bestowed on us for the evolution of our Spirit, we will also be watching over our actions avoiding the precipices in the evil that lurks at us at various times. One careless act will include us in the condition of unconscious suicides who may have to reside in the dark valleys of mourning and pain for a set amount of time – until the date of their planned death.

Suicide – Please Don’t Even Consider It!! – You are an Immortal Spirit

We Spiritists, are taught that we must pay in this life or the next for the wrongs we have committed. But for suicide, the payment is immediate. In Andre Luiz’s first book, Nosso Lar, psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier, published in 1944, Andre dies and is sent to;

“Actually, I felt like a prisoner trapped behind dark bars of horror. With my hairumbra-andreLuiz on end, my heart pounding, and scared stiff, I often cried out like a madman. I begged for mercy and clamored against the painful despondency that had taken hold of my spirit. But when my loud cries didn’t fall on an implacable silence, they were answered by lamenting voices even more pitiful than my own. At other times, sinister umbra-nossaLarlaughter rent the prevailing silence. I thought that some unknown companion out there was a prisoner of insanity. Diabolical forms, ghastly faces, animal-like countenances appeared from time to time, increasing my panic. When it wasn’t pitch dark, the landscape seemed to be bathed in a lurid light as if shrouded in a thick mist that was warmed from afar by the rays of the sun.” [Nosso Lar, 2010, p.17]

Suicide – Life after Death is Worse than Physical Life

Suicide – Life after Death is Worse than Physical Life – The aftereffects of suicide is discussed in my book “The Case for Reincarnation – Your Path to Perfection.” The spirit realm tells us that we aren’t allow to end our planned trials early – if we do, we are still connected to our decaying body until the time planned for us to return to the spirit universe. The time spent in the Lower Zone is not pleasant.

Feel like committing suicide? – The Spirituality Wishes You to Complete Your Trial on Earth

The book - Nossa Lar

Nossa Lar

We Spiritists, are taught that we must pay in this life or the next for the wrongs we have committed. But for suicide, the payment is immediate. In Andre Luiz’s first book, Nosso Lar, psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier, published in 1944, Andre dies and is sent to;

“Actually, I felt like a prisoner trapped behind dark bars of horror. With my hairumbra-andreLuiz on end, my heart pounding, and scared stiff, I often cried out like a madman. I begged for mercy and clamored against the painful despondency that had taken hold of my spirit. But when my loud cries didn’t fall on an implacable silence, they were answered by lamenting voices even more pitiful than my own. At other times, sinister umbra-nossaLarlaughter rent the prevailing silence. I thought that some unknown companion out there was a prisoner of insanity. Diabolical forms, ghastly faces, animal-like countenances appeared from time to time, increasing my panic. When it wasn’t pitch dark, the landscape seemed to be bathed in a lurid light as if shrouded in a thick mist that was warmed from afar by the rays of the sun.” [Nossar Lar, 2010, p.17]

Sounds horrible. Andre told of people coming to him and calling out “Suicide!”, but he knew he didn’t commit suicide. It wasn’t until he was rescued by the spirits from Nossa Lar, that he discovered that he was a suicide, an “unconscious suicide”, which denotes that he drank and whored himself to death (or more explicitly, syphilis and liver damage killed him). Andre stayed in that location until he finally prostrated himself and begged for God’s mercy and forgiveness.

We are sent to earth to learn the lessons assigned to us by the spirit world. Lessons that we need to repair past wrongs and to remove blemishes from our soul. We aren’t here just for our own benefit, but for a greater purpose. We are part of a legion of spirits who are on earth to better ourselves, so one day the entire planet can be the paradise it was meant to be. Hence, we must all learn to love, be charitable, and honest with each other.

It is for humanity that we must strive to become worthy souls. This is why the spirit realm places ourThe Problem is the Solution soul into the assigned body and we are programmed to remain connected until we have completed our planned destiny on earth. The trials you must suffer through in your life can be very trying, but they are there to replace past wrongs and to teach you to, one day, become a pure spirit. Read about why you must experience your full life in my book The Problem is the Solution. You will discover that the events presented to you are there for a reason.

Camilo’s Suicide

In another book, Memoirs of a Suicide, by the Spirit Camilo Candido Botelho, published in 1955, psychographed by Yvonne A. Pereira, Camilo, who was a famous Portuguese author, committed suicide in June 1, 1890. He writes of the landscape where he found himself;

Camilo Candido Botelho

“Within its winding gorges and sinister caves, spirits that used to be men and women on the earth howled like hordes of infuriated demons, demented by the absolutely unconceivable intensity and strangeness of the sufferings that tormented them.

In that awful place that distraught eyes of the condemned were unable to discern even the slightest gentle outline of a tree that might bear witness to their hours of desperation; or any comforting scenery, for that matter, that might distract them from the wearisome contemplation of those gorges, where no other expression of life could enter other than that of supreme horror!

umbra-sceneThe ground, covered with fetid, dark soot-like matter was filthy, pasty, slippery and repugnant! The heavy air was asphyxiating, icy and darkened by threatening clouds, as if never-ending storms were roaring all around. When they inhaled, the spirits confined there would choke, as if the pulverized matter, more noxious than ash and lime, had invaded their respiratory tract, tormenting them with a torture unimaginable to a human mind used to the glorious light of the sun – that celestial gift that blesses the earth every day – and the life-giving currents of salutary breezes that invigorate the physical bodies of the planet’s inhabitants.” [ Memoirs of a Suicide, 2012, pp.19-20]

The absence of the sun, the presence of pitiful creatures, the filth, all in common with both experiences. Not a good place to be. The spirit world must have desired to create a place that would be worse than whatever drove you to the conclusion that death would be a better alternative.

Why does such pain await for suicides and for people who drink, drug, or smoke themselves to death? Because, when we are reincarnated, we are expected to live through our trials, our lessons. The act of dropping out of those classroom activities is not an option.

We are told that when a person commits suicide, they will usually reside in this terrible place for the number of years that they would have normally lived. This is why, we have an obligation to live to our agreed upon lifespan. Since many of us are participants in mapping out the trials we shall experience while incarnated on earth.

victoryWe must remember, as said many times in books psychographed by Chico Xavier and in the books by Allan Kardec, we are not given trials that we don’t have a way to be triumphant. While the road may seem impossible, there is7Tenets-small3D always a method for a successful exit. And by the way, maintain a good attitude throughout the entire ordeal and you may get bonus points.
