Spooned by God

Spooned by God

Sharing is caring!

It’s essential to devote time to explore your inner world. You can access your inner world through the portal of your imagination which I invite you to do now.

Imagine a vast and majestic, holy castle within you. This castle is the high altar of your consciousness, the kingdom of your soul. It is the place within you, wherein all that you have ever desired now exists and abides. It is eternal and vast; it is the place where your innermost dreams and desires are fulfilled. It is your home, your real home, and it’s already paid for in full. There are no mortgages or leases or second mortgages on this home, and it is your line of eternal equity.

Whenever you get tripped up by the circumstances, conditions or personalities in your life and begin to think that God is not real, come back to this place, to this castle within you and ask God to show itself to you. God accepts requests and responds accordingly. It knows what you need to see, hear, feel, sense, and experience to remember how much you are loved and adored by It.

For example, many years ago, I had only just begun my spiritual inquiry and quest for Truth, when the relationship with my boyfriend came to an end. I was heartbroken, a real mess; fraught with disappointment and sorrow, I cried and cried. The time came when I needed some respite from the sadness; a peaceful night’s sleep, and that is when I made my first request of God.

Do you know that cuddling thing you do with your beloved at times commonly referred to as “spooning”? Both of you are curled up in a fetal-like position, one behind the other with knees bent. There is such a sense of love and safety in resting together that way.

I was so upset, heartbroken and tired of being this way when I said: “God if you’re real, then why don’t you spoon me?” I realized this might have been an unreasonable request, yet I felt a sense of relief in asking God for some love and comfort. I laid there in my bed in that fetal position waiting when I suddenly felt energy push up against my back, behind my knees and the blankets snuggling tightly around me. I knew it was God.

I felt loved and at peace, then I fell asleep.

Don’t be afraid to ask God to reveal Itself to you and then begin to look for it everywhere. I guarantee you will start to see it more and you will know that you are sweetly courting the Divine as the secret and unseen self within all selves. Each time it shows itself to you, give thanks for its appearance.

One day you will no longer have to ask; it will simply be with you always in all ways, and you will know It like you know your name.

And so it is.
