(Warning: This article may contain beliefs that will be threatening not only to one's ego, but disturbing to one's viewpoint, and so therefore I ask for an open mind, as I do not ever write anything without extensive experience, decades of study, deep contemplation, and having gone through this loss with a boyfriend and friends.) To answer this question, one must first define hell, the "other side", what is going on there, and if hell actually exists outside the ego mind belief. When we cross over (taking into consideration a belief in reincarnation here), the "Other Side" is exactly what we expect it to be. I mean that statement as literal. Having said that, exactly who are these beings on the other side who control everything and "teach" us - helping us to "progress"? By "these beings" I refer to the so-called guides who help souls progress from different levels, mentioned by various authors, such as Michael Newton and Sylvia Browne. Who are these beings? For myself, I believe they are beings that perpetrate themselves as either "of the light" or "of the dark", to keep this whole unnecessary cycle of reincarnating continuing ad nauseam. I personally do not trust anything that tries to teach me how to be a lightworker, or an accomplish of the dark. I no longer participate in the game of light against dark, as it is only just that - a game, and the only way to escape it is to forgive this world, this cosmos and the other side as the holographic illusion that it really is. Sylvia Browne did hit on one part of it when she said there was a final stage you get to where the soul goes back to God. The problem is these "beings" create the temptation of staying in the reincarnation cycle, by urging us to review our lives and correct our "mistakes", but how many mistakes can actually be made in an illusion?
So, what happens, then if someone commits suicide? Depending on the individual's belief, they will go to a perception that lives out what they think their soul corresponds to - this light or dark side. So, if a person commits suicide, because they want to make other's pay for hurting them, they may be aligning themselves with a dark agenda and go to a place of imagined suffering. Remember its all a holographic perception, even over there. If they took their life because they were worn out and could not go on, or other non-vindictive reasons, they cross over, heal and recover. When I ask where the soul is, the spiritual heirarchy or lightworker perpetrators may tell me the individual is making a choice to accept self-love and then they can fully cross over, but I know this is merely the asking of the individual to choose light or dark. Essentially, they are not being taught real love, in which there is no separation between souls, but are tricked (as we are here) of continuing the idea that we are all separate ego personalities with different destinies. The choice for the soul, then is where they want to visit on that side. Hell-like or heaven-like? So, it is no different for a suicide or anyone else crossing over where they end up - its a self-perception choice.
This may seem disturbing to you reading this, who have lost loved ones to suicide or by other means. Believing that everything happening on the other side is a game can seem hopeless, but it truly is just an extension of what goes on here on Earth. An endless cycle of birth and death is unnecessary, because there is a true Heaven. This is oneness with God, the choice to return to God, giving up the unreal creations of the ego-self, and thereby exiting the reincarnation cycle altogether.
Similar explanations to this can be seen from a variety of perspectives, such as David Icke's belief in an alien Reptilian matrix universe that we are caught in, but whatever the belief, the common ground here is that this universe is a hologram, does not exist, and the ultimate spiritual goal is to traverse it. Suicides, in my opinion, and in my experience of contacting them after death, are the same as regular deaths. They do not reincarnate back immediately through a revolving door, as some suggest, unless they actually choose that. They are not punished or treated any differently other than how they believe that they should suffer or be rewarded.
