How to Talk to God

Let me start today’s blog by acknowledging that the G-word can be a little loaded for some people. If you resonate more with terms like the Universe, angels, your ~ing, or anything else, just know that it’s all the same.

Got it?


Whatever terminology you use, there is an energy force within us and around us supporting us and guiding us. This energy force shows us what to do and what to say; it protects us.

The word or words you use to describe that force don’t really matter. What matters is that you have faith in it, that you acknowledge it and trust it.

When we actually OWN that truth, we can begin to get into conversation with God. And that conversation is simple. It’s just 3 steps, repeated daily:

1. You ask
2. You listen
3. You witness

Step 1 is asking, which you do through prayer. Praying doesn’t have to be elaborate or complicated. You just say thank you and offer up a request or an intention with gratitude. In doing so, you start a dialogue with God.

Sometimes I simply say, “Show me what to do.” Or I might ask, “What miracles should I perform today?”

Sometimes I say, “Thank you for revealing to me what it is I need to know.” Praying with the word “thank you” is very powerful because it implies that what you need is already done. Instead of exuding a desperate energy, you inhabit serenity and gratitude and sureness. Pray with the words “thank you” and see for yourself the impact it has.

Another powerful prayer is to pray for the highest good for ALL — instead of praying for what you think you need. When you pray for what you think you need, you start trying to control outcomes. When you pray for the highest good for all, you allow the Universe to do her thing and you can wait without anxiety.

Once you’ve prayed, the next step is to listen — and we do this through meditation. When we get still and come into a state of peace, we can allow the voice of love, the voice of God, the voice of wisdom, to move through us.

Meditation lets us slow down, get quiet, and get out of the way so that we can finally hear this voice. (You may even want to keep a notebook near you so that after you meditate you can jot down any insights or thoughts that may come through during your meditation.)

Finally, step 3 is to continue to witness. Let this conversation become a dialogue in your daily life. Allow and witness. Allow and wonder. Be in the presence of what is coming to you, and trust that what’s coming is in the right divine order.

When you follow these steps you clear away fear, doubt and limitation and live in a world of magnificence and freedom and support every single day. Being in conversation with God lets you trust in God.

Start this practice today. Get into it and enjoy it! Let the Universe support you. For more of this, pick up my book The Universe Has Your Back and co-create your life with the Universe.
