The Other Side of Suicide, byKaren Peebles: What happens when a suicide crosses over? Where do they go? Readers, I crossed over into the spirit world 25 years ago, having ended my life prematurely by what you call on Earth suicide. You would call me a suicide victim. I have a lot to say, having been here now for this long and having searched all of that time for someone there on Earth to communicate with. Someone to bring back the knowledge that I now have access to and share that knowledge with persons, like the person I was while alive, who have lost hope and feel so heavily burdened by life that only death itself seems like a solution. I also have much that I want to share with families of persons who have ended their lives early. While I reside now, here in the spirit realm, I have a greater understanding of the mechanics of life on Earth. Why we choose to come down to Earth to begin with, how we allow ourselves to get caught up in the world of illusion, and how we can easily lose touch with the true essence of who we really are while living on the Earth; which is what happens all too often and escalates to the point of a desire to end life before its perfect time. This is the collection of information from the spirit known as George who ended his life early while on the Earth and seeks to impart a greater knowledge to others who are contemplating the same fate.
