Important First Step In Learning To Receive Communication from God

10 comments

Holy Spirit Peace DoveThere are many different ways to receive inner guidance, direction, and communication from God. People oftentimes think, even if they are not aware of it, that the only “valid” or “real” way to hear God’s voice is to hear an audible, distinct voice within them. Ironically, it is this thought that frequently causes people to miss all of the other wonderful ways that God speaks to them all the time.

One important step in learning to hear God’s voice within you as a distinct and conversational voice is to first acknowledge all of the other ways you already “hear” this Voice in your life. In truth, God can speak to you in countless different ways, i.e. through signs, feelings, your intuition, books, music, muscle testing, movies, television, the newspaper, nature, your dreams, your own journaling, other people, and truly through every single possible symbol that the world offers. When we believe that there is only one valid method for hearing God’s voice, we will undoubtedly dismiss all the other ways that we already hear this Voice without knowing it.

This was my experience for many years. I was so determined to hear an audible voice within me that I discounted all of these other ways that I was already hearing God’s voice and didn’t know it. During this period of time, it was incredibly frustrating and saddening for me to try to hear God’s voice, because I was truly hearing it all the time and didn’t know it. I was receiving divine guidance, healing, insight, and all of the other wonderful qualities of God in so many different ways, yet I was unwilling to acknowledge it because I didn’t hear God’s voice as a seemingly separate voice within me. It wasn’t until I finally gave up trying to hear an audible voice and began to finally acknowledge all of these different ways of hearing God’s voice that I finally opened up to hearing it in a very conversational way within me.

By acknowledging and validating all of the different ways that I was hearing God in my life, I began to deepen my relationship with God. I began to feel God’s presence in my life. I began to receive much of the guidance and communication from God that was all around me. This process helped me to open my heart and mind to greater communication. It helps me to deepen my experience of God in all areas of my life. It was this openness that eventually became the catalyst for hearing God’s voice more clearly and distinctly within me.

I would like to encourage you to spend some time acknowledging all of the different ways that you receive guidance and communication from God. Spend some time acknowledging all the different ways that you are restored to peace, love, understanding, compassion, wisdom, and truth in your life. Every time that you are restored to a quality of God, you are hearing God’s voice. Every time that you deepen your compassion, understanding, and faith in your brother or sister, you are hearing God’s voice. Every time that you experience more joy, passion, and inspiration in your life, you are hearing the voice of God within you.

Spent some time today and all this week acknowledging every time that you are restored to God your experience. When you acknowledging this, validate your ability to receive communication from God. Validate the truth that you ARE hearing God’s voice already. This acknowledgment and validation will open the door for a deeper and richer relationship with God, and a clearer, more conscious experience of your ability to hear God’s voice in a distinct and conversation way.

Spend some time today, and throughout this week, recognizing and acknowledging how you DO hear God’s Voice in your life. By doing so, you will begin to build a strong foundation for hearing God’s voice in all the ways that you truly desire.

Many blessings to you.

    Thank you for this. I am finding great comfort in looking back over the past days, seeing all the times I have been in communication with God. I’ve never looked at it this way before. It feels very good. God bless…Debbie

  • Thank you so much for commenting and sharing your experience doing this, Debbie. I’m so grateful! Every time that we can acknowledge hearing God’s voice in some way, it strengthens the reality that we truly do Hear that Voice in our lives, more than we realize. Blessings to you!

    David,

    This has come at the right time. Actually there has been a number of times that I felt God was speaking to me through say a poster on a wall, writings on a minibus, on a sticker but sometimes I have dismissed this thinking we should not take this as truth because it is not the word of God (Bible). Surely, I need to start acknowledging all the ways. The Question is How can you be sure? Beacuse at times you can hear your own voice and think it was God speaking to you. Elias, Malawi
