Interactive Communication with God

Updated on June 2, 2013

Communicating with God

Communicating with God

In my life, keeping an open line for communicating to Divinity is important. I prefer mornings, though any time of the day is fine. My ritual’s purpose is to help me to stay in touch. Why is it important for me to stay in touch daily? Communication is the only tool that I have to share with Great Spirit. It is how I can show my gratitude, as well as bring my concerns to the table. This has also provided me many moments of comfort, when I felt like a stranger living in a strange world.

Open communication has aided me in understanding this God Presence in my life, which for me cannot be labeled through a religion. In many ways, it has been through this type of communication that my own limiting beliefs of the Source have disintegrated. You too might discover that Divinity is not limited, and find enjoyment in your daily communications, as I have.

Morning ritual-interactive meditation

. The kitchen table has been cleaned off the night before, and special items that represent something to me have been placed on the table, along with two cups, prior to bed. This is something that I do in the same manner as preparing my table for company. There are endless ways to set the table, from flowers, crystals to anything that I wish to share with my guest-Great Spirit. I am aware that when I awaken in the morning, I will be brewing coffee for us, so I choose from a mug or china. When I am done, then I retire to the night.

This appointment to communicate with the Divine is something that I will do my best to keep daily. There are times the morning just will not work. In the past, it would have been an unlikely time, since I had my family living with me. It really doesn’t matter when you do it, but that you do stay consistent. If I for some reason cannot do this, I do mentally send a communication to the Divine. I apologize for not being able to meet, and offer another time. The time is irrelevant, for I am aware The Supreme Being isn’t limited, as I am. I also know It is everywhere. The time factor actually is only for me, as an aid to keep me motivated in continuing my communications. Life can at times become hectic, and it is during those periods where it is way to easy to abandon my communications.

The differences between interactive communication and prayer with your Deity of choice.

Chatting with the Deity of your choice is different than a prayer. It is communication, which offers an exchange. You can speak on anything that concerns you, or talk about a funny event. As you sip your coffee, in silence, you are also listening. The offering here is to be open to having a clear communication. This represents quieting one’s mind as another speaks. You are not focus on what to say, or anything else but giving 100% to listening. Both of you have the qualities of a good listener.

Another difference is you are not meeting to ask God to give you something. You are not loading the Cosmic Source down with promises in the form of bribery. Those statements, if only you will grant me a wish or two, I promise to be better. These are not put on the table. Instead this is a sacred time, which is used to share unconditional love and gratitude. It is also a time to seek guidance for how you can benefit others in your life path. You will spend moments laughing, as well as crying throughout your many conversations with God, which leads you to feeling uplifted.

Your ritual is a good cup of coffee and conversation with Great Spirit, which uplifts you, and helps you to meet the day, or understand your day. In this interactive discussion, you have had a chance to express yourself, as well as listen. You have felt the embrace of the Cosmic Source. Morning coffee ritual helps to enrich your relationship with the Divine. It puts your relationship on more of a personal level, through daily activity. It is different than offering a prayer. I find most who pray are asking for something, and to me a personal relationship must go beyond the edges of give me. It must be a mutual exchange. Do you not feel more energized when visiting with someone and the energy was flowing in a sharing exchange, versus the person asking you only for help? This is how the energy is between the Divine and me. The Supreme Being is loved by me. Love to me is not seeking to gain something from it. I would not treat my family or friends in that cold manner, let alone God. It shows disrespect.

Can you see the value of this type of communication? It to me is the best path I have taken. It does help me to reduce my stress level. This has kept me motivated to keeping going forward, even during my darkest days. I feel if we learn to interact with this God Presence we will reach a new rung on our ladder of spiritual growth. We will share this peace and calm with others. Wouldn’t this be a good way to live life?
