Trigger Warning: Triggers are different for everyone. You never know when they are going to show up. I am sharing in hopes of helping others.
Suicide has become the #1 cause of death for teenagers in my state currently. There have been 12 in the last year that I am aware of. My heartbreaks for those involved. I know the times I have attempted I was not in my right mind. I was in a dark place where there was no hope. I at times I was numb to everything and just going through the motions faking life.
I am grateful my attempts where not successful. I am grateful for the support I had and continue to have. There are still times that I experience suicidal ideations but they are more passive.
What is Suicidal ideation? Suicidal ideation is broken down into two forms: active and passive. Active involves an existing wish to die accompanied by a plan for how to carry out the death. Passive involves a desire to die, but without a specific plan for carrying out the death. Most people have Suicidal ideation, or suicidal thoughts at one point or another in their life. Sadly it is a lot more common than most people let on. Suicidal ideation, or suicidal thoughts are quite troubling, especially as they’re usually accompanied by a mental illness such as depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder.
I want to help others find a way to cope with the emotions that are leading them to the Suicidal ideation, or suicidal thoughts. Here are some great Suicide Prevention Resources:
- Suicide Prevention, Awareness and Support
- National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255
- Suicide and Crisis Support
- Rutgers University – Counseling guide for suicide prevention (Thanks Erikka & Kyla for sharing this one with me.)
I have also put together some online classes for Supporting Anxiety with Essential Oils and Supporting Depression with Essential Oils.
Lime is an amazing oil that can assist you in dealing with grief. Its stimulating and refreshing properties positively affects mood to promote emotional balance and well-being.
If you or someone you know is struggling please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255, review the Rutgers University – Counseling guide for suicide prevention and/or find a counselor.

Everyone has his or her own journey. I honor Warrior for sharing hers with you. We each have our own triggers and interpretations of life. My intent is to add in the healing process not cause anxiety or pain. Our experience may be similar but they are each unique. Even though many people could have been at the same event each person experiences and remembers those events through our own eyes and will recall the event differently. My blogs will be from my perspective of my life. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend. I am not a Doctor, Counselor or Therapist. I believe it is important to work with Doctors, Counselors and Therapist along with Essential Oils, Energy Healing and spirituality to find health, healing and balance.
