Why Do People Die

As a medium I am often asked "If there is a God then why do people have to go through so much suffering?" "If there is a God why do people die such horrific deaths?"  "If there is a God why do children and animals get abused and/or tortured?"  I could go on and on.  I never pretend to have the all the answers.  To be honest, I have wondered some of these questions before too.  I especially have difficulty coming to terms with the fact that there really is so much pain and suffering in the world.  I simply can't cope with that and I can't understand it some days.

Luckily, with my spiritual growth and discovery I have learned a valuable lesson that helps me during those constant times of "Why's."  I've realized that there is a purpose to death and I can rationalize why people die horrific deaths, suffer, and/or die young.

The first thing I'd like to say about this is to not worry about your loved one that passed.  Once their soul separates from their body they are in good hands.  They are off to bigger and better things.  They don't hurt anymore.  So stop worrying.  They are doing beautifully.  Worrying doesn't help anyone and it's pointless.  I know that's harsh, but it's true.  Worrying about anything in life really doesn't help you.  It hinders you.  So try to make peace with the fact that your loved one is ok.  They are more than ok.  They're awesome.

The next thing I'd like to talk about is the why.  Why do people die?  I'm told that before our spirit is born into this earth we plan our lives, agree to certain circumstances, and even choose our parents.  We didn't choose these things based on simplicity or to have the best life ever.  We chose these circumstances in order to grow spiritually while on earth and to help ourselves progress even further in the after life.  For example, a soul may choose to have abusive parents in order to teach themselves a lesson that will help them grow.  They may have been abusive and self destructive in a past life.  In order to grow maybe they felt the roles needed to be reversed so they can see the error in their ways.  A soul may choose to die young to help teach someone on earth about unconditional love and to help them grow and progress on their own soul journey.

It doesn't always have to make sense, but in the end I do believe that someone learned something, grew, and improved because of these traumatic instances.

I feel that my own rough times and even the losses of family members helped me tremendously on my own soul journey.  It helped me grow and transform into a more loving and compassionate person.  I saw the error in my ways of being selfish and started calling my family members and friends to see how they were; to be there for them and to simply listen when they are having a hard time.  I learned about impermanence and the value in viewing death in a way that is beautiful instead of allowing depression to take hold of me.  I am able to understand that in order to have life there must be death.  I am ok with that.  

I think the point I'm trying to make here is that no matter what there is always a reason behind the pain and suffering and horrors of the world.  They don't always have to make sense to us but these souls agreed to endure those horrors and hard times for a reason.  Whether it's while you're living on earth or when you're in the afterlife, I do believe that you will find answers eventually.  I know it's a controversial way to view things but it's something I do strongly believe in.  I think it's our job to accept things for what they are, grow from them, and make peace with things that we cannot change.

Simply have faith and you will be fine.
