There is a meaning and purpose to all things that happen. There are people that believe your soul created a plan for you at birth. Is it possible that Alex’s soul faced an Exit Point when he left the physical world? I have been reading dozens of books to understand why this happened, where Alex is, and how to communicate with him…all in the spiritual sense, of course. Wonderful friends of the family started me on this journey only a short few weeks after we lost Alex.
I believe that Alex faced what is called an “exit point”. These are the times in our life when we have the option of leaving the physical and returning to spirit or staying on the planet in a human body. We all have two or three of these exit points throughout our lifetime and most of us are not even aware when they occur.
In our lifetime, there may be people you know who have been near death and have chosen either to leave or to stay. In fact, there is a movie based on this exact premise in the theatre right now called “If I Stay”. It’s a challenging time, just waiting to find out what happens. It’s a time of mixed feelings, celebrating a return to spirit and mourning the loss of wonderful human beings. If the purpose of our life on earth is to have various experiences for our souls growth, would it not make sense that the soul who’s body perishes, from one of many possible ways, learns from that experience as much as the soul who grieves profoundly for their loved one that died? There are many books and blogs on this topic and here is an excerpt from Spirit Speaks:
Here’s a message from the Lady of the Sun about exit points
“Most of you plan for exit points when you develop the outline of what you are coming to earth to do and experience. You can choose to leave or choose to stay depending on what is happening in your lives at the time and in the lives of those around you. For leaving affects many other souls and needs to be carefully planned.
For many people, the exit point represents a time when your karma has been cleared and you have done and learned most of what you came here to do and learn. You have the option of returning to spirit, or staying here and creating a new life for yourself, having let go of the past and being free of karmic debt.
When you reach one of these exit points, you arrange to meet with your soul’s support team on the other side to discuss what to do, what is best for the soul at this point and what is best for those around them. Much discussion and planning takes place, but ultimately the individual soul makes a choice.
Some people choose to leave because life has gotten very difficult for them to exist in a physical body. Physical bodies do break down and dis-ease, pain and suffering may be experienced. The soul may get weary of the burden of this suffering and decide to leave the physical and continue their work in the spirit realm.
Some people choose to stay and either continue with the same situation they were in, or make other choices, which happens more frequently. They choose another experience, most often something that involves feeling joy and experiencing abundance – another experience they would like to have while in physical form.
What happens really depends on the situation and what is best for the soul and for those around them, for choosing to exit has an impact on all who support the soul while on earth. Because of this, their higher selves are also included in the decision making, having the opportunity to let the soul know their perspective on their choice to leave or stay. And all of the guides and angels involved are allowed to share their ideas and preferences.
All of this information is taken into consideration when making the final decision, which is the decision of the soul who is at the exit point. The choice that they make is always for the highest good although it may not seem to be at the time when those who are left behind experience loss. But remember that loss can be mourned or the transition can be celebrated. You get to choose.
And I’d like to address that which you call suicide. The point of suicide is also an exit point that is part of the divine plan of a soul. If it is appropriate for the soul to leave the physical, they will. If it is not the best time, they will be sent back to complete the work that they came here to do. As with any exit point, there is much planning that goes into the decision of the soul to stay or leave. There is always a perfection in their choice to leave as most often, being in physical form has become very difficult for the soul.
Just know that from the perspective of spirit, there is no judgement on whatever choice the soul has made. Again, the decision is not made in isolation as a grand meeting of souls takes place and the choice that is made is for the highest good of all. That is just what you do when you plan from the perspective of your soul or what you may call your higher self. You make the best possible choice.
You will all find that many people are facing exit points at this time as the earth goes through its grand time of transition. Many souls have completed their soul contracts, cleared karma and can make the choice of experiencing the transition as a being in physical form or a being in spiritual form. The choice is always for the highest good of all. Know this to be true.
Just know that loss will happen for many as they let go of human beings who they dearly love. Just know that what you call death is not an ending of life, but a transition from physical form to spiritual form. And, whether you choose to mourn or celebrate this transition is a choice that you make.”
We are different as just a soul, as the intention to love and to be loved is the most important thing. Sometimes while we are present on earth and in the body, we can’t feel what we could feel as a nonphysical entity. In spirituality, there is no wrong or sinful act which is to say that ending your life does not change your destiny. As a soul in the afterlife, we are free to love and fully give our hearts. The darkest place could be the beginning of the light for some. No Divine higher being such as God, Jesus, Mary, Archangels, or other Ascended Masters would ever judge a human for taking their life in despair. Help and guidance awaits those on the other side, no matter how you pass through. Loving guides or angels are there and they nurture all of us.
It is also believed that if someone has tried to end their life and has even the slightest change of heart, there will be an intervention by our guardian angels. It is a fact that our spirit guides and guardian angels are unable to interfere with our “free will”. This is, in a way, a message to the living. If someone you know has died of a suicide, it was not your fault and nothing could be done.
Although Alex’s death is devastating for me, his family and friends, I know in my heart that Alex is at peace and growing spiritually. A decision was made by his soul and it could not be changed. I know Alex’s soul is in a beautiful place of joy and serenity. It is all we can ask for anyone we deeply love.
“I know my wisdom guides me to the right decision.”
