note: The following question was asked, "God, how can I learn to channel
you?" (or) "How do I connect with the God within, to gain the
support and the guidance that he offers?" Two contributors have channeled
answers, and we are posting their work here to demonstrate other examples
of God channeling.
"Many want to know the answers, but few want to hear them. Few will accept them. To access God, nothing needs to be done. NO THING. Rather, no ritual or dogmatic understanding is necessary. First of all you are already connected. You cannot not be connected, so first the question must be rephrased. This is the first step in understanding; to properly phrase the question. Getting answers is infinitely easier if you ask the questions properly. For the question : How do I connect with the God within? The question itself is redundant. It presupposes that I AM within, hence we are already connected. But I know what you mean. The question properly phrased is, "How do I become more aware of my connection with God?" When asked in silent sincerity the question begins to answer itself. It says "I am connected to God, now I AM MORE aware of God.
"You would imagine that I would be a booming voice from without or an insistent tugging from within. I AM not your divine representations of you. You are the human representation of me. I do not have human emotion as you do, I have divine emotion and will not "boom" at you or cajole and manipulate you into "doing my will." That age is over. My voice is so close to yours that when we speak, you too often assume it to be your own mind.You are too quick to cast off the easy communique from within in search of the "hard-earned" wisdom from without. To answer your question, you become more aware of your connection with me by believing that the connection exists and that my voice is not always a voice. Sometimes my voice is a song or a picture or a child or a movie or a heart attack or an auto accident or a sunrise. Whenever you feel that "there's something else going on, here" IT IS! IT'S ME!! That's when you should relax and ask (properly) what else is going on. I will always answer, will you always listen? You are all too busy and have come to believe that if you are not going, going, going then you are lazy or not achieving your "potential," that you'll fall behind, there's not enough time... huff huff huff. My dears there is so much more "time" than you realize. There is no hurry to get where you will surely be, where you already are. There is always next time. In your hurry, you are looking beyond where you are. You miss what's right in front of you. The noise in your mind will drown out my soft whispers to you. Slow down.
"To be more aware of anything, slow your mental chatter and take more of "it" into yourself. Try this. Close your eyes. Relax, take a deep breath and with sincere intent and assurance of success tell yourself to "be all here". Feel your energy coming back into your space. It might surprise you to know just how "outside yourself" you are at any given moment. Call yourself home. Repeat it "be all here" "be all here" "be all here". When you feel "all here" I AM with you (I AM always with you, are you always with me?) When you're all here, reach out with your heart and mind and being and ask "am I connected? Are you there?" you will know then that I AM there. The more often you do this, the more you will know it, the more you will feel it, the more you will be aware of your question answered. A long answer to a short question, yes. But you would not hear the short answer; "To be connected, connect. To be aware, awaken." You want to know the mechanics of it, the why and how. And it is good that you do, but in that questioning you drown out the answer even as I give it to you. A questioning mind is as a clenched fist trying to pick up a coin. Relax the grip and simply pick me up. I AM easy, regardless of what you have been told."
God, how we can contact you within, to gain the support and the guidance that you offer?
"It is only to trust that you do. Look to a small plant, a blade of grass. See the life, feel the life the glow. Does it not bring a smile?
This is "All That Is". Close your eyes and breathe in the wonder, the life, a child's laugh, the light. Now, hold that breath and ask for strength and ask for guidance and ask for protection and ask to listen. Let out this wondrous breath that you have held and all the tension and fear and disbelief. Do this again, breath in the joy, the love, the gentleness and hold the wonder, the breath and give thanks. Now let it out slowly feeling the glory, feeling the peace, beginning to feel more of the oneness than ever before. And again, inhale the life that abounds around you, inhale the love from the ground you stand upon. Inhale the love and the light from above and hold this love and see it penetrate every cell of your being. You are radiating the light, you are the light, exhale and you exhale light, breathe normally and you breathe in and out pure light and love from all things and "All That Is" .
Now you might ask, "What do I do now?" Just be, just be in this magnificent light. And when something happens to dim this light within yourself, just simply remember this exercise and do it again. Daily, several times a day, it will only bring you closer, bring you to remembrance, to oneness with All That Is. As there is only one, we are one, we are All That Is.
Now when you look upon that small plant, that blade of grass, what do you see? Do you see a part of you? Ask that plant or blade of grass what it is needing. Now listen. Trust. Now go within, go to the millions of cells that are alight with divine love. Feel the embrace, the love. Ask what is on your mind, the answer will come, be still, be quiet, listen, and most of all, trust. Trust that first message you receive, it is the divine message. This is a process to receive guidance from within, from all things, from "All that is".
