Dear Shaman Lizzie: My brother committed suicide in 2019 for unknown reasons. There were no warning signs or evidence that he was having any issues and no drug or alcohol abuse. He had a great wife and a small child. It was like he woke up one morning and decided to end things. I have been distraught over his sudden passing and need answers for closure. I have went to 2 mediums and both were unable to communicate with my brother. What can I do to move forward? Noreen, Harrisburg, PA.

Dear Noreen: Hello and thanks for your question. I’m sorry to hear about your brother’s suicide and the grief and confusion it has caused. Dealing with the loss of a loved one, especially when it involves suicide, can be an incredibly challenging and painful experience. It’s only natural to seek answers, closure, and a way to connect with the departed. Many people turn to psychic mediums in the hope of receiving messages from their loved ones who have passed away. However, the topic of afterlife communication and its connection to suicide can be complex.

Can Mediums Communicate with People Who Commit Suicide?

One of the most common questions that arises in situations like yours is whether psychic mediums can communicate with individuals who have taken their own lives. While it’s important to approach this topic with sensitivity and respect, it’s worth noting that psychic mediums claim to have the ability to communicate with spirits in the afterlife, regardless of how they passed away.

However, it’s crucial to understand that the ability to connect with spirits is not guaranteed. Mediumship is an intricate practice, and not all mediums can successfully establish contact with every spirit. There can be various reasons why a medium might struggle to communicate with a specific individual, including factors beyond their control.

Understanding Afterlife Communication

When it comes to afterlife communication, it’s important to keep an open mind and approach the process with realistic expectations. Psychic mediums work as intermediaries between the physical and spiritual realms, but they are not all-knowing or infallible. They rely on the energy and willingness of the spirits they are trying to connect with.

It’s essential to remember that the afterlife is a complex and mysterious realm. The reasons behind why someone took their own life may not always be immediately apparent or easily communicated. It’s possible that your brother’s spirit may still be healing, processing, or adjusting in the afterlife, which could affect the ease and clarity of communication.

Seeking Answers and Understanding

While psychic mediums can provide a channel for communication, it’s important to manage your expectations and consider other avenues for seeking answers about your brother’s suicide. Grief counseling, therapy, and support groups can offer a safe space to explore your emotions, gain insights, and find healing.

Understanding why someone chose to end their own life is a complex matter. It often involves a combination of personal struggles, mental health issues, and other factors that may not be readily apparent. It’s crucial to approach this delicate topic with compassion, empathy, and a willingness to accept that some answers may remain elusive.

Honoring Your Brother’s Memory

Instead of solely focusing on the reasons behind your brother’s suicide, consider shifting your focus towards honoring his memory and celebrating the positive aspects of his life. Remember the moments you shared, the love you had for each other, and the impact he made during his time on earth.

By keeping his memory alive in your heart and sharing stories about him with others, you can help ensure that his legacy lives on. Additionally, participating in suicide prevention initiatives or supporting mental health organizations can be a meaningful way to honor his memory while making a positive impact in the lives of others.


Dealing with the loss of a loved one who has committed suicide is an incredibly difficult journey. While psychic mediums can offer a potential avenue for afterlife communication, it’s important to approach the process with realistic expectations and seek support from other sources as well. Noreen, remember to focus on honoring your brother’s memory and finding healing in your own way.
