Is there a valley of suicides?

QUESTION: Masters one medium told me that my friend, who committed suicide last year, is suffering greatly in the “valley of suicides”, because he has transgressed divine laws. She directed me to pray for suffering souls, of Kardecism. I did not like the prayer. I believe in free will and unconditional love outside the earth. Is my friend
really still suffering? Should I pray for him yet? Please, tell me how he is. ~Isadora, Brazil

ANSWER: Your friend had a good laugh over the words of the medium and your battle between what you were told and what you believe in your heart from your awakening state. What the medium told you sounds a little like the religious concept of purgatory or something that would be said of a karmic consequence in response to negative activities. These things exist in your world only if you believe they are present.

To whom do you pray if you create your own reality and negativity only exists on Earth? Who can change what you have manifested? All decisions are individually determined. No one can change your choices unless you agree. There is no supreme or higher being creating your world and changing it as they wish.

There is no valley of suicides because neither your friend nor anyone else has transgressed divine laws. The laws are that every soul is broken off from Source and therefore is in its image and likeness composed of unconditional love. Each soul, while experiencing negativity in the only place they can, which is Earth, has total freedom of choice to decide what they wish to learn.

Outside of the plane of Earth there is nothing but unconditional loving energy. Once your friend left his corporeal body, he went into that love and found not a scintilla of negativity around with which he had to deal. He is back spending time with other souls of his acquaintance and watching what is going on in the wake of his leaving.

He wants you to know that he left as he did because he had made an agreement with a number of people, including you, to go so that you would have to deal with his method of death. He had never planned on being around much longer than he was. He had accomplished what he set out to learn, and sticking around was becoming boring. He will be back before long because there are new things he wants to explore.
