I've heard there are but I don't remember the source. Personally I don't believe there are but it's still just not a good idea because you'll have to come back again and be given the same tests that made you do it in the first place.

I agree with pureEvil760, one has to do it all over again. Suicide is not the answer, getting help is, to then help yourself.

1) What about the pain you've caused your loved ones?
2) What if others follow your example?
3) What if you find out that wonderful things were about to happen to you that you cut short?
4) What if you "almost succeed" at killing yourself, as in wind up as a vegetable, or in a nursing home? (I saw an attractive young woman in a nursing home with elderly Alzheimer's patients, who shot herself, but survived, with severe head injury.)

I also think like a few previous posters that you will reincarnate with the same problems, and maybe an urge to again run away from those problems, so in the end you’re just making it harder on yourself.

I’ve heard that in a life review at the time of death you see your life and how it affects other people, imagine seeing the hurt you’ve caused others when your own depression is taken out of the picture and you can see clearly.

Life is precious, I think we’re here to fulfill our spiritual potential, to cut life short deliberately is wrong in just so many ways.

If you die by your own hand (suicide) it does not mean you have to come back and do it again,
people take their own lives for a variety of reasons,
anyone who passes over through illness etc or suicide go into a hospital of sorts in the spirit world so it can heal.
it does not mean you have to come back and do it over again.

That's good to know Native Spirit.

I've always heard it was totally against God's will & it was either being sent back here or some dark plane on the other side.
And being raised Catholic I was taught the old straight to Hell thing.

What if all the things on your list were Life's Purpose/Karmic Obligations that were agreed on before we come here?

I can either believe in karma or your concept, I’m going with karma.

Karma isn't much more than reward/punishment mentality and frankly it's really not very 'Spiritual' either. If you want an understanding check out kamma-vipaka. And Native's 'concept' isn't a concept, it's mediumship and therefore from Spirit.

This may apply to karma on an individual level, and it is how many people understand karma.

On a broader level, karma relates to universal balance and harmony. Which is why astrologically the sign governing karma is Libra with the scales of balance.
