Evolved Souls Don’t Need Long Earthly Experiences
April 2024 by Mark Pitstick, MA, DC

To all family members, I am very sorry about the death of your child’s human form.  (Your daughter and/or son didn't really die even though their earth-suit did.  That's an extremely important distinction.)  I’m glad you are learning how to heal and transform despite this seeming tragedy.  Six key understandings to making that shift are:

     1. Over 99% of who and what your child 'was' is still alive in the next phase of life.  This is true no matter how they passed on.  See the following articles at for a review of the scientific, clinical, and experiential evidence for this statement.

  1. Again, only their earthly body died: everything else about them continues – all the love, energy, sense of humor, memories, personality, energetic / spiritual body, and much more.

  2. They are happy, peaceful, loving, and enthusiastic – and want you to be that way now too. Read article #2 When a Child Changes Worlds and #93 For Bereaved Parents and Family Members to learn how you can do that. 

         4. You will see them when you pass on and can enjoy a different kind of relationship now.  To learn more about how you can do this, see article #9 Visit With ‘Departed’ Loved Ones Now
         5. You can choose – moment by moment – to transmute your grief into a spiritually transformative experience that powerfully improves your life and blesses others.  To learn how, see article #82 Journey from 'Bereaved' to 'Shining Light'

         6. You can heal and share gifts from their life and transition from earth by lovingly serving others.  Read article #84 Heal and Transform Your Suffering.


After a child changes worlds, family members understandably feel much pain, sadness, anger, guilt, and other lower-energy emotions.   No one could or should ever judge that.  However, many have learned to regularly use keys #1 - 6 above and, over time, and feel more peace, joy, love, and gratitude.  To learn more about how you can do this, see article #108 Higher Energies, Emotions, and Ways of Being.    

You can do the same.  It’s not easy and it doesn’t happen overnight, but it is possible with small steps day by day using the above keys and six action steps . . .

  1. Attend online HPH meetings on the Calendar and attend local Affiliate Groups.  (If there's not an in-person group nearby, consider staring one.)   


  1. Use Special Interest Groups that offer more focused service for fathers, siblings, parents of children who passed by suicide or substance abuse, and much more.

  2. Contact The Caring Listeners to talk with at no charge


  1. Read free articles at and take relevant action steps


  1. Listen to free Radio Shows at and experts' answers to life’s toughest questions including “Why do children die?”


  1. Lean on others as needed. Later, when you are doing better, you can help others.

Q: Dear Mark, thanks for the information in your March 2024 Soul Proof newsletterOur beautiful son also passed away by suicide.  (I still find it hard to say that word).  He was an absolute gentleman, intelligent, loving towards everyone, and never took drugs or alcohol.

But once he lost his dream job, everything turned quickly . . . it was totally out of character as he loved life!


It's been 4 1/2 years and we are still struggling to find a new normal.  I've searched high and low for good answers about the afterlife and really like the simplicity and certainty behind yours.  My God we miss our son!  He was an absolute blessing but was taken away from us and himself!  I'm confused and frustrated.  - Joe


A: Dear Joe, I am very sorry to hear about your son's passing and all the suffering you understandably feel.   Shock, guilt, frustration, and anger are common emotions parents have after their child change worlds via suicide.  


You and your family can heal and transform from this.  Helping Parents Heal has the resources to help you do that more easily and quickly than you might imagine.  Before recommending resources, I'd like to comment on these two sentences of yours: He was an absolute blessing but was taken away from us and himself! 


Much of the suffering people feel after any type of perceived loss is due to not fully knowing how life is set up.  Your son still is an absolute blessing; you just can't sense that yet likely due to: (a) your deep grief, (b) lack of knowledge about the nature of reality, and (c) limited or erroneous religious teachings from your past.  I'm not being critical, it's just the way things are.  Most people don't understand the big picture of life and suffer immensely because of it. 


He wasn't taken away from you as you will likely learn if you following the recommendations below.  Many parents continue to have stellar relationships with their children who has passed on but definitely not passed away.  And he wasn't taken away from himself.  As mentioned in the introduction to this Q & A, his earthly body is less than 1% of who and what he really is.  His consciousness / life force / soul is still very much alive. 


What's more, your son wasn't 'taken away' by God or life.  His suicide may have been an impulsive action that he wouldn't take if he could do things over gain.  Or, he might have suffered with mental illness or other imbalances that he didn't share with you.  For more information, see article #36 Suicide: Core Causes and Holistic Solutions.  Whatever the case, the timing and means of his passing certainly wasn't unilaterally decreed by a big guy in the sky.  To learn more about this, see article #78 Why Did God Take My Loved One?!   


I recommend the following resources to help you and your family feel more peace and acceptance about his passing.  All of these resources are important, but I'd start with recommendations #1, 3, article 4 under #5, and using all the audio techniques under #6. 


  1. Watch interviews with group leaders and caring listeners.
