How to talk to God (Receive Divine Guidance)
How to connect and communicate with God?
A question I get often is about how to communicate with God, or the Universe, higher self, Source, or whatever you want to call it.
I’ve shared about this a lot as it’s the way I live my life;
I’m in constant communication with God, so below are some of my articles that will be helpful to anyone looking to connect more deeply with that which they call “god”.
Anyone can have a close and intimate relationship with God, even if you’re an atheist! – Because “God” can also be your higher mind, or whatever feels most right for you to call it.
“I think we’re part of a greater wisdom that we will ever understand; a higher order, call it what you want. Know what I call it? The Big Electron.” — George Carlin
Another quote by George Carlin:
“We’re calling on a higher potential within ourselves when we say ‘please help me God’; Were saying ‘please God, help me find in me what it is like you that’ll make me do this the way I’d love it.” — George Carlin (paraphrasing the quote as I remember it from the movie “George Carlin’s American Dream” (2022).
God has nothing to do with any religious beliefs or belief-systems.
We all have the ability to do this, to talk with God and get answers, and the more you include God into your life and affairs, the deeper the relationship and communication grows.
Whatever you choose to call it, it’s all the same thing, and for as long as you have a good, healthy and loving relationship with It, I really don’t care what your name for it is.
God can have many names.
Depending on how I feel, when I’m in a reverent mood for example, then I call It ‘God’, while at other times when I’m in a more driven ‘doer’ mode, then I call it my higher self, or even subconscious mind.
It doesn’t matter what you call it.
The most important thing is to recognize that there is something higher or bigger that we can turn to and communicate with and get a response from.
It’s God that does everything, through us and ‘to’ us.
It’s actually the God power that prompts me to shift between the different energies of It, because there is an importance of self-empowerment as well.
We need to be both reverent, when we feel all blissed out and full of deep gratitude about everything in the presence of God (which comes naturally), and also follow how the energy is leading us to be in action-mode when it’s time for that (which also comes naturally when you follow the flow of what is shown), and then it serves us better to change our perception into a more self-empowered mode (this too happens naturally when you learn to trust the unfolding of your life), while still remain in the deep “spiritual”-like mode at our core.
There’s a perfect balance of everything (appointed by God/the Divine), where everything (and every aspect of yourself, God included) works together in harmony for your good.
And God wants this for us, it wants us to feel empowered and powerful. It is It that leads us on this path, showing us the different aspects of Itself, which we can relate to and work in alignment with.
I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful it is to have the connection I have, there are no words that can describe it.
How is your relationship with God?
You have to feel empowered and supported in your relationship with God (and not feel like you’re being judged and watched over by critical eyes etc).
If you don’t, then you have to work through the beliefs, concepts and definitions you hold about God that keeps you unhappy, stuck, and resentful.
In my own process to find the real God, I even went through a time where I was an atheist for a while, and looking back, I can see that it was God doing even that, in order to help me break free from the false.
So please do the exercises etc that I’m sharing in these articles and you too will be able to develop a wonderful and loving and awesome relationship and communication with this Power that we call ‘God’.
Articles that will help you connect and communicate with the Divine, the Universe, God, your higher self:
“When you connect and listen within, you will always know exactly what to do and when to do it and at the exact right time you need to know it, and at times when nothing comes up, you are able to easily drop it, knowing that when it’s time for you to know something, you will. You can live this way always. There is no need to be fearful, stressed out and anxious.

“We all have an inner voice of intuition that is always guiding us and showing us the way to live in alignment with ourselves and when we listen to it it protects us from a lot of suffering and struggle in life.

“When life wants something better for you, it sends you an idea, it puts a thought in your mind that contains the answer that will set you free.

Most people pray in a way that will not help them.

Do it today, connect with God, Source, your higher self, – Take some time off to be alone with yourself and God. I don’t know what could be more important than to do just that, especially if you really, really need help and guidance on something right now.
Take this article as an invitation from Source itself and I promise you that you will get a response, and the more you do this, the clearer the guidance becomes, and the clearer it becomes, the better your life becomes too.
You can be just as you are and talk however you want!
It’s a beautiful way to live, to be in alignment with God, and not as “spiritual” as many think.
It’s actually a natural way for us to live and move through life, it’s just that many people feel disconnected from it because we have learned to follow all kinds of other voices and influences instead of our own inner Self and the guidance that is constantly being given to us ‘from above’ and from within.
You don’t have to be or do anything special in order to talk with God.
Just be yourself and speak from your heart with sincerity and by doing this on a daily basis it will quickly develop into having an ongoing, conversational relationship with it/him/her that you would never want to not have again.
It just becomes part of who you are and how you live your life (and not just something you run to in times of trouble and hardship).
This is the way we’re meant to live and be in this world – Being connected to, and in communion with the amazing and beautiful God-force that creates worlds.
