Why is this so hard for people to believe? Why can't we have a conversation with God? A REAL conversation and not simply a one-way chat where you talk and He listens. In fact, if someone walked up to you today and told you that they just had an actual conversation with God, would you think they had multiple personality disorder or were just simply crazy? Many would just shake their head in disbelief. Katharine Giovanni, author of the new book "God, is that You?" would like you to think differently. "For years I have listened to sermons, read books by New Age authors, and asked people questions in hopes of finding a way to actually talk to God. What was I searching for? I wanted God to answer my questions in real, honest-to-goodness English. I wanted to hear actual words that I could understand." Giovanni says in her new book. In fact, Giovanni says it's quite simple and outlines a very easy method in her new book "God, is that you?"
1. Remove your doubt
Doubt is probably one of the most powerful emotions in the world. In fact, you can doubt yourself out of anything! You can doubt yourself out of taking that new job, you can doubt yourself out of writing that book and you can doubt yourself out of talking to God. You say you can't do this so you don't ... it's as simple as that.
So, the first step to actually hearing God's words is to remove the doubt. KNOW that you can have a two-way conversation with God. Choose to do it and you will. Doubt that you can talk to God and you won't.
2. Remove your fear
Fear is another very powerful emotion. Many of us have been socialized since birth to believe that God will only talk to the special people in the world such as the Pope, priests, ministers, rabbi and the like. Many also fear that God will punish them in some way for the various "sins" they have committed. Fear of what God might say or do causes many people to simply not want to have a conversation with God, even if they could.
What if you can? What if you CAN have an actual conversation with God? Imagine how your life would change! You must stop being afraid of God and simply choose to talk to Him. You can do this!!! Everyone on the planet can if they choose to. Everyone. God loves us unconditionally and is here to help you no matter what you have done in your life.
Let's repeat that one again ... God wants to help you no matter what you have done. Today is a new day!
3. Choose to hear God's voice
Choose to do it, and you will. Life is actually as simple or as difficult as we make it. Imagine that you are an artist facing a blank canvas. You can make the picture as simple or as complex as you like. You can choose the colors and the theme of the painting. Choose to make your painting simple, and it will be. Choose to make your painting difficult, and it will be. Doubt your abilities and doubt that you are worthy enough for God to talk to, and you won't hear Him. It's as simple as that.
God WILL and CAN talk to you in your own language. In words that you can clearly hear and understand. Choose to hear Him. Choose to move forward and watch your life transform!
THIS IS YOUR GOLDEN MOMENT OF REALIZATION. This is the hope of a better way and even better things yet to come! It is time you had your very own conversation with God. Remove your doubts and inhibitions for a brief moment while you walk down this new road. You can always go back to them if you wish. There is a whole new world waiting for you, a world filled with light, love, and unlimited opportunities! Ready? Of course you are. You wouldn't be reading this article now if you weren't. Perhaps this is what the world needs right now, faith that God will talk to us. Imagine how your life would change if you could actually talk to Him! Now you can. In fact, this method is so easy that anyone can learn how to have a two-way conversation with God.
