Hi! I moved to a new place. I would love for you to visit me there.

I Don’t Believe In Religion But I Talked To God Today

my conversation with godI got involved today in a very unexpected activity for me. I was talking to God.

Why unexpected? Because I don’t talk to God often. I am not religious person, I don’t go to church, I don’t say prayers or read the Bible.

I, of course like many of us, believe in Source or Universal Consciousness or our Higher Self… whatever we call it, it represents the same thing to me. God represents that to me too, but I don’t talk specifically to God, and I never imagine the Father Almighty when I try to get some answers from within.

Anyway, today I was asked to talk to God. Specifically God, not any other names I mentioned above. It had to be God, The Father, The Almighty. I had to imagine a person not a concept.

I was reluctant in the beginning, I had resistance. I asked why do I have to give this religious connotation to it? Why can’t I just talk to my intuition or to my Highest Self or the Universe? But the person specifically asked to talk to God and imagine God.

I still wanted to resist, I wanted to argue, I wanted to prove that it doesn’t matter what we call him or what we imagine. As long as the attributes are the same, the name we give or the specific image we have in mind doesn’t matter.

I was asked to try anyway to imagine God and talk specifically to God. I surprisingly  agreed to do it.

I imagined God. I haven’t done it in a long time. It felt weird.

Then I was instructed to ask questions. I asked. One of the questions I asked  was –What do you think of me? Another one was – What message do you have for me?

I had to write my answers down as they came. I had about 5 minutes and I had to write down the first things that came to mind.

I did.

What came out was nothing that I didn’t expect or didn’t know but everything that I didn’t expect and didn’t know. It really felt like coming home if it makes sense.

I wanted to share with you the message that I found written down on my paper:

“I love you, my sweet and dear child, always did, always will. There is nothing you can do for that love to change. There is nothing that can separate me from you.

I love you so much that it hurts.

I want to protect you, I want to give you only the best. But you have a choice and like a loving parent I respect it.

You think that you need some of the choices you make in order for you to grow more but in my eyes you are so perfect, no further growth is needed.

I so wish you could realize it. I so wish you could understand how much I love you and could see the love that you are.

I so wish you could realize that you don’t need to work on yourself or improve yourself first before you can earn what you want.

You deserve it now.

Please allow me to give it to you.

Allow in all the abundance that is yours already.

I love you. I am proud of you. I am here for you.

You can trust me. Will you trust me? Please trust me.”

That was the message. I felt I had to share it with you. Hope you don’t think I am too pathetic for doing it:)

Here are some lessons I took from the experience:

1. I realized why I had to talk specifically to God and imagine a person in front of me. The Universe, the Source or any other concepts I originally wanted to use could not have possibly sent me the same message. Well, maybe they could but my mind wouldn’t have accepted it. It had to be a person.

2. I realized once again that there are always two ways: pushing and allowing. Both work but the last one is easier. I am still pushing a lot in my life even though I want to start allowing more.

Does allowing mean not doing anything and just sitting on the couch expecting all of my desires knock on the door?

No! It means trusting more, letting go more, loving myself more, expecting less failures while taking the same focused and consistent action.

Allowing is not as much about what you do but more about how you do it, the vibration you send out while doing it. There is no clinging, there is no fear, there is no striving.

3. I also realized that you probably can’t come to a full allowing stage before you went through a pushing stage. Some people never come to a pushing stage to begin with. Some people are so afraid of failures that they never take action on their dreams to begin with.

Pushing is good as long as you are moving and growing…but allowing is so much better and so liberating.

Allow the ease. Trust more. You are always loved. Nothing can change it. Failure is an illusion.

He is always there for you. Whatever you call him – God, Source, The Universe, Your Higher Self, Your Unconscious Mind or maybe you don’t call him anything.  He is still there.

He wants to help you.

You deserve it. You are perfect already.

Accept your greatness, step into it and allow the abundance to come in.

I don’t know about this. I’m an agnostic, which is the hardest belief to hold, because humans want solidity, but my desire for truth means at least at this stage I can’t say there is or isn’t an Infinite being or God.

I like your message, but I think we as humans should be offering that kind of love to each other. 🙂

Thanks for commenting Gordie! I think we can offer that kind of love to each other only after we can offer it to ourselves first.

Lana, this post is incredibly powerful!
There is a spirit within man, it’s the breath of God. You said, “I was asked to talk to God,” and I ask, who told you to do that?
I see tremendous openness in you for spiritual things, that continues to amaze and stun me.
Yet, nothing about this post inspires me as much as two things, (1) Your courage and openness in sharing a deep spiritual experience with us. (2) The highly encouraging words you received form the Almighty Father of all human spirits.
Thank you so much, and may God continue to bless you!

Wow Lana, what a message to receive and a powerful door you’ve opened between the readers of your blog and yourself. This was an incredibly brave post to write as a lot of people could take it the wrong way, however you managed to write with grace and humility. I don’t believe in god but am still deeply spiritual and believe in my ‘higher self’ so I know where you were coming from with the resistance.

Great post Lana, it showed us a little more about you.

Lana, I am so glad that you shared this post and experience. I always believed that personal beliefs are choices that each of us has to make on their own. I am a Christian and even though I don’t go to church I read the Bible and talk to God regularly. To me it all makes sense and this is the road that I have chosen for my life.
I was extremely resistant at first too but after I had a few amazing accidents happen in my life I didn’t have any more resistance. I put my trust and faith in God but I keep working myself to make sure that I am worthy of His love and help.
I am sure that this conversation with God opened new possibilities for growth to you. Thank you again fora wonderful article and your openness.

Hi Pastor WD, the whole things actually happened pretty spontaneously at my friend’s house. It is amazing that a pastor would want to comment on post that said:”I don’t believe in religion..”:) Glad we met and thank you for your kind words.

Amit, this is true, I think i finally accepted myself fully after this experience and realized that I truly am perfect already. Some people might think it is selfish to think that but I think now it is selfish not to. Thank you for your sincere and kind comment.

@Steven I so appreciate your comment and understanding, I really had to go out of my comfort zone to publish something like this, but I am glad I did. Thank you!

“Allowing is not as much about what you do but more about how you do it, the vibration you send out while doing it. There is no clinging, there is no fear, there is no striving.”

I think this is the key. Allowing is not something we do, it’s something we stop doing. We stop resisting.

I just a wrote a post on this, on allowing whatever our state is, lovingly. When there is no clinging and no fear, we can learn from it.

Thanks, great post.

Hi Lana — yes, I’ve had the same sort of experience — that when I address something I say to God, I do feel a sense of warmth and understanding, even though I don’t tend to intellectually see God as a being that is separate from reality. It’s interesting and something I definitely want to explore more.

Lana January 20, 2010 at 8:25 am

@J.D. Thank you, I like it too, self actualization and self acceptance rock:)

@ Chris yes Chris, I didn’t realize right away, but then I understood why it had to be specifically God-because of that feeling of warmth and understanding. Thank you for commenting:)

Oh wow! Interesting adventure! It’s great that you received a response! Have you read the books by Neale Donald Walsch on “Conversations with God”? His books transform my life!

Very good material, Lana — thank you for sharing it. It’s interesting how you you describe it as “the message you found written down on your paper.” This suggests that it sourced from outside of you, which is my definition of channeled– is that what it felt like to you? It is certainly written that way, and resonates deeply with much other loving channeled work. Also, it’s appropriate that Evelyn pointed out the similarity to Neale Donald Walsch’s Conversations With God. Years ago, his books were my springboard into a much more intensive spiritual experience of life. Most of his books may be categorized as auto-writing, just as you apparently did. I suggest that you continue seeking this connection, and allowing its flow through you. Be the love that you are, dear One 🙂

Thanks for sharing your personal prayer or talk with God. I think we’ll get an answer no matter who we address. If we are silent long enough to hear the message it’s always there. Nice!

Lana,
The nice thing is that you don’t have far to reach that Lovely and wise Power: It is always inside of every single person. We have just to stop and listen the Voice…..
All the best!

@ Evelyn yes, I read his books about 6 years ago and it was very enlightening! Thank you for commenting Evelyn!

@ Mike It didn’t really feel like the source was outside of me. It felt more as if it was coming from something that was within me all along. Thank youf or your encouragement and I will definitely try to be more the love that I am.

Lana January 21, 2010 at 7:18 am

@Tess, you are so right, the answers are always there, all we have to do is listen and hear them. Thank you for commenting Tess!

@Boris, it was definitely nice to hear that message that quickly. No need to wait for hours and hours, just ask and listen. Thanks for commenting!
