Suicide is the intentional taking of one’s life. It is generally preceded by periods of chronic depression, a sense of extreme loneliness, worthlessness and isolation.
It adversely impacts more than just the person who ended his or her own life. It impacts the parents (mother and father), siblings, relatives, offspring, and friends and perhaps a community.
Depressed individuals are oftentimes suicidal. To be depressed means to have your spirit deflated. Depressed people have a tremendous weight on their shoulders.
When your foot chakras and crown chakra are unstable, the Soul can easily pass out of the body. Suicidal people usually have unstable foot and crown chakras meaning they are unstable materially and unstable spiritually.
Depression is rampant in the Western world today, especially in the United States, and especially amongst females.
Depression is also the result of the perception of lack of love, joy, good health, passion, inspiration, hope, purpose, creativity, zest, ambition, willpower, sense of being, self-esteem, high self-image, and a host of other things.
Loss of something (i.e. of a loved one, prestigious position, a possession, etc.) can also lead to depression. Depression is a form of emotional wounding and it is the depth of emotional wounding that determines the depth of the depression.
Depression means your spirit is depressed and needs inflating and it is only inspiration stemming from love (especially self-love, love of life, love of purpose, etc.) that can inflate the spirit.
Alcohol and drugs feed depression. This includes pharmaceutical drugs (medication). In fact, antidepressant medication such as Prozac and Valium actually cause suicidal tendencies according to independent research and studies.
Chronic depression is something one would need to be concerned about because it is chronic depression that fosters thoughts of suicide. People who are chronically depressed live a certain lifestyle in chronic fashion, doing the same thing over and over or consistently, i.e. thinking negative (that they’re worthless, not loved, have no value), feeling sorry for themselves, sleeping long hours throughout the day, staying inside shut of from society, or popping pills and/or drinking booze. You are bound to be depressed if you consistently think depressed-filled thoughts. Depressed thoughts lead to depression.
Loneliness is a major reason many people contemplate and actually commit suicide. But loneliness is nothing more than natural aloneness inverted.
When we feel lonely, it’s because we don’t truly know ourselves, and so we need others or at least we think we need others to make us feel whole or complete.
We must realize that if we feel lonely, we are lacking the sense of aloneness and must work on getting back to this natural state. Yes, aloneness is natural and even our birthright. Consider the eloquent words of the world’s greatest spiritual mystic, Osho:
- Lonelines is misunderstood aloneness. Once you misunderstand your aloneness as loneliness, the whole context changes. Aloneness has a beauty and a grandeur, a positivity; loneliness is poor, negative, dark, dismal. Loneliness is a gap. Something is missing, something is needed to fill it, and nothing can ever fill it because it is misunderstanding in the first place. As you grow older, the gap also grows bigger. People are so afraid to be by themselves that they do any kind of stupid thing. I have seen people playing cards alone; the other party is not there. They have invented games in which the same person plays cards from both sides.
Finding your aloneness you can create, you can be involved in as many things as you want, because this involvement will not anymore be running away from yourself.
Now it will be your expression; now it will be the manifestation of all that is your potential. But the first basic thing is to know aloneness absolutely.

Feed your spiritual side (and don’t confuse spiritual with religious). Perform deep breathing exercises, or yoga. This exercise helps us to remove pent up, stagnant, and stale energy.
Do not lie in bed all day. Get up! Move around! Do something! Occupy your mind. Stretch, jog, go swimming, or hiking!
FORGIVE YOURSELF. It doesn’t matter what it is that you have done or was done unto you. Release it! Let it go! Forgive yourself and be free!
Meditate and pray. Release the grief! Remove the fear! Release the guilt and shame!
Though times may get dark, you must understand that all life starts in darkness. Without darkness we’d have no light. Light is dependent upon darkness. Darkness and light work together.
Dark days don’t always last (and again, not that dark days are bad or negative). Trouble doesn’t always last. A person like me sees and converts trouble into opportunity that means choices, choices to improve my life, condition, and circumstances.
Make sure that if and when you are depressed that you only listen to uplifting or inspirational and motivational music. Even go to sleep listening to this kind of music. Make sure to listen to this kind of music repeatedly and consistently, consciously programming yourself.
Also, watch funny movies, comedies! Laugh, laugh, laugh! Laughter truly is good medicine.
Make sure you only talk to positive and uplifting people, too.
If you are contemplating suicide…
Your life has value.
You are loved, whether you feel it or not.
You do mean a lot and something to this world and the world does need you.
You play an integral part in the balance of things here on the planet.
Your life has purpose!
Think about all of the good things you’ve ever done in your life. Only think about the good you’ve done as well as all the good things people have said about you. If no one has said anything good about you or you can’t remember, simply say something good about yourself TODAY! Today, this moment, is all you have, so start here!
