36 Tips To Hearing God's Voice, The Voice For Love Within You: Tip #1 - Thoughts On Hearing God

Aug 17, 2007
Even though I could remember talking to God as a kid, when I was an adult and thought about talking to God, what came to my mind was: "Who are you to think that you can talk to God?" But the truth is, who am I not to? Who are YOU not to? When we think, "Who am I to talk to God?" we deny ourselves our Oneness with our Source. So even though the thought might arise, "who am I to think that I can talk to God?" it is just a thought. It's just something that arises when you entertain the thought of connecting with Source.

There are lots of thoughts that arise just like that: "Talking to God is impossible. Talking to God is something that only Holy people do. Talking to God is something that takes years and years of meditation, dedication, and isolation. One has to be in a monastery or be a priest or Pope to be able to talk to God." All of these thoughts are just distractions in the moment to keep you from connecting with your Source.

When you begin to think about talking to God and hearing His Voice, by whatever name you use, be it God's Voice, Holy Spirit, Voice for Love or Peace, Higher Self, True Self, Inner Wisdom, small still voice within, become aware of what thoughts arise. Notice what happens when you do that. If you become afraid at the thought of talking to God, that just means that a thought has arisen that caused you to become fearful. A fear thought could be as simple as, "I'll never be able to do that." It could be a thought that says, "I'm not worthy of talking to God. God would never talk to me." It could be, "Look at all the things that I have said and done. Why would God bother with me?"

When you notice what emotion arises when you think about talking to God, you can know that a thought, which we call emotion, has attached itself to that thought, and just allow yourself to become aware of what it is that arose in your mind that was this momentary distraction, because that's all it is. It's just the idea of "look over here," instead of going to God. Notice this instead of going to God. Solve this instead of going to God. But that thought is only a tiny, meaningless distraction. It's like a little flea that's nibbling away at you here and there, and all you have to do is see it for what it is. If you want to scratch the bites, that's fine, but don't let that become the focus of your reality. It's just a little bite. Scratch it and move on. That's all these thoughts are, just a little momentary distraction. Notice them for what they are and move on.

In your meditation practice, in your communication with God and God's Voice, allow yourself to become aware of what arises in your mind as you go within. Do your best to notice those thoughts, emotions, or beliefs as lovingly and kindly as you can. They are just thoughts that arise. They don't mean anything. They are not a reflection of you. They're just thoughts that arise, these little flea bites that distract you for a moment. When you notice them for what they really are and respond to them with truth, love, and kindness, you are free to continue to focus on your connection with God.

Let's say, for example, that you have the thought: "Who am I to think that I can talk to God?" You can then remember: "Oh yeah, who am I NOT to? It's my job to be connected with Source. That's my job. That's all God would ask of me. Who am I not to?"
Or you have the thought: "Why would God want to talk to me?" You can respond, "Because God created me and God only sees my perfection. God wants nothing more than to talk with me."

"I'm not worthy. I've done these things, said these things, or thought these things. I'm not worthy to talk to God," and you remind yourself, "God doesn't care. God just loves. God does not judge, God just loves."

Whatever thoughts arise, allow yourself to respond to them with Truth. You know the truth in your heart. You know that God only loves. So when you have the thought: "Oh, I've done these things or said these things. God will judge me," you can remember, "Actually, God doesn't judge. I am the only one judging me," and continue to move past that thought or move on from that bug bite. Allow yourself to continue to move in the direction of connecting with Source. It's as if you are maneuvering your way around these little distractions or obstacles, the little thoughts that arise, but you respond lovingly to them and remain on the pathway to Source.

There is nothing that can stop you from getting to God. There is nothing that can keep you from your Creator. Even if you're not sure how to respond with the truth to a thought that arises, just remind yourself, "Nothing can keep me from my Creator," and continue to move along on that path.

Since it is only a thought that can keep you from God, let yourself notice what thoughts have arisen in the past few minutes. Make note of the thoughts that sound familiar or the thoughts that have come to your mind and allow yourself in the next few days to continue to become more and more aware of what thoughts come up when you think about talking with God. Really look at each thought and allow a truthful response to each one to come to you so that you know no matter what thought arises, there is nothing that can keep you from your Source. Focus on this in the next few days and find out how much more connected you feel to God in doing so.
