_ Crossing Over
To understand the concept of crossing over you must first understand what the soul is. Everything in the universe is created from energy, the soul is the pure energy created from the essence of God and the soul is created in God’s image and has his inherent abilities.
Every soul has a free will they will not be forced to cross over if they choose not to. There are numerous reasons why a soul does not cross. Angels are present at the passing of a soul. ANY soul they don’t care what religion you are. If you have followed a sinful life they will council you in the heavenly realms and escort you up the levels of consciousness. There is always an angel present to meet you when you pass, as well as some family members who wish to greet you. A soul has free will and can choose not to go with the angels but to remain on the physical plane. This plain is between earth and the first level of consciousness, and is a kind of limbo or neither land. There are numerous reasons a soul may decided to stay in this realm.
Why do spirits remain earthbound?
Fear is the most common cause for a soul not crossing; many souls are terrified of how God will judge them and worry that they will burn in eternal damnation for their misdeeds. This is a misconception created by religious institutions as a way to control the masses through fear. This is a fallacy and completely untrue. God is the creator of all and the most powerful entity all the universe, he is our father. Do you really think that he would be as petty as to thrown you into a burning pit for all eternity because you were human and sinned. Parents may not always like what their children do, but they always love and forgive them. It is the same with God, as the almighty God he gives divine forgiveness and welcomes you back into his loving arms. No misdeed is too great for him to forgive, all you need to do is repent your faults and ask for forgiveness and it shall be granted.
They are not aware that they are dead
Some souls die suddenly and very traumatically, for these souls the trauma is so serve that they do not realize that they have passed.

With suicides there is a problem because before coming to earth each soul creates a contract with God as to how long they will be here and what they chose to learn. If a person cuts short their life through suicide they do not automatically pass, they are held here so that they can complete their contract. It is possible to cross these souls over they will need to review their lives and complete their lessons then they can pass. These souls can be very distressed because they are trapped in a cycle of remembrance of the moment of their passing and the instance regret of realizing their mistake and knowing that it was too late to chance it. Many of these souls immediately try to get back into their bodies as soon as the realization hits them but in most cases it is already too late.
