Very few sensitive people have not felt suicidal at a moment or two in their lives. This world is filled with incidents and accidents that give tremors to our hearts. For all of us, there are times when it just seems too much, or we get too tired and fed up, or someone betrays and hurts us to a point of no return. It is at that exact moment that we must call upon our higher selves in order to get through. What strength we cannot find within ourselves, we must seek outside of ourselves, such as angels, ancient masters, religion, workshops, therapy, books, films that we feel can feed our spiritual and emotional hunger.
There are many different emotions that stir a sense of deep despair. Because suicide is so on the rise, we felt that we would be doing an injustice not to give some promising suggestions. We do not have THE answer but we do care enough to try and share some of the things that have worked for ourselves and others. However, getting professional help is more often necessary than not necessary, whether that be a counselor, therapist or groups. Also, today, there are many web sites offering assistance under the title of Suicide. Reach out and when you do, know that one day, someone may be reaching out to you.
Some of the emotions that can stimulate suicidal feelings
Hopelessness – not seeing anything positive in our future.
Suggested solution: Find our purpose for being here in this world. Knowing our purpose is knowing our power. There IS a bigger picture, however we must seek it… for only the seeker shall find.
Helplessness – feeling like there is nothing that can be done about something we do not like.
Suggested Solution: Develop an acceptance of things we cannot change yet commit to what we can change. So many things are out of our control, therefore it behooves us to focus on what we CAN control… mainly ourselves.
Fear – fear creates an extremely darkened feeling, a sense of not feeling safe in this world.
Suggested Solution: Examine to see if the fear is a wisdom, as example, maybe we should not go to places that are dangerous or involve ourselves with people who dangerously create problems. We need to be conscious of surrounding ourselves with people whom we can trust. We need to try endeavors that feed our souls, being very careful not to invoke any kind of soul loss. Soul loss is a loss of our light. When we lose our light, darken energies come into our space.
Bullying – feeling intimidated, tyrannized, creates extreme fear.
Suggested Solution: Do not let it go. Go to the web site, www.bullying.org – there are a lot of people available to help. Get the assistance you need to stop it as quickly as possible. If we are in a situation that is too difficult for us to handle and we feel frightened, we must find someone who can help us. We were never meant to make it alone, there is ALWAYS someone, somewhere who can help. Do not give up trying to find that person. Angels are always watching but must be asked in order to be able to intervene.
Loss of Inspiration – emptiness and feeling void of creativity.
Suggested Solution: Never watch violence on TV or in movies, look for mentors who are inspiring, listen to good music, eat fabulous tasting food that was cooked with love, read articles and books that reinforce positivity, go to the Good News Network (www.goodnewsnetwork.org), find people who are inspiring, do something we have never done before, such as painting, changing our room around, baking, cooking, trying a sport we never tried, go to a place we have never been.
Lack of Faith – not believing in a power higher than ourselves.
Suggested Solution: Find a group that believes, find a mentor who can connect us to something higher than ourselves, spend time with animals, walk in nature and really look at what has been so beautifully created, deliberately look for beauty, in art, in films, in stores, in nature, in magazines.
Feeling Unloved and Unlovable - which leads to loneliness and isolation.
Suggested Solution: More and more we are realizing that loving ourselves is the most important aspect of being able to lead a successful life. With the pace of our world, technology, internet, and over exposure to stimuli, by and large people are not taking care of their loved ones as they use to. So learning to care for ourselves ensures stability in our emotional being, our spirit and our lives.
We need to be conscious of our self-talk, saying only positive things about ourselves to ourselves.
We need to be conscious of our mind chatter, thinking only positive things about ourselves to ourselves.
We must concentrate and focus on things we like about ourselves.
We must be honest about the things we do not like about ourselves and commit to transforming them.
Acts of kindness always help our self-esteem; they are a protection against a feeling of unworthiness.

Constantly learn to love others well, whether that be a person, an animal or the environment.

One sure way of getting out of depression, is everyday make a commitment to do five acts of goodness for someone or something.
Look to those less fortunate and do something about it. Being of service automatically sparks a new productivity.

“Is this all there is?” attitude – this can lead to believing that it is better on the other side.
Suggested Solution: Life is what we make of it. Happiness is not the absence of problems but the ability to deal with them. The original Divine plan is that we are supposed to be living Heaven on Earth. This planet and our lives are a garden….but gardens need constant tending, look for things that will make us happy, that will make us smile, that will make us sing, look for people who we admire and try to incorporate something into ourselves that we respect in them.
