My Conversation with God

April 4, 2012
by Coach Cora

In my past I have had a raging Co-Dependant relationship…it was intimate, it was juicy, it was dramatic…

and it was with…

MY CELL PHONE.

I bought my first mobile phone when I was a junior in college and I carried it with me EVERYWHERE.  It  felt so thrilling and new to to call a friend at ANY POINT during my day.  I even made phone calls to friends while jogging on the trails behind my school.

I was a bit obsessed.

One of my Cell Phone Rituals consisted of calling friends to chat EVERY TIME I was walking somewhere.  I had a daily couple-mile jaunt to my job at the Boys and Girls Club so each time I walked, I talked…and talked, and talked, and talked!

It was compulsive.  I was filling up every minute of every day with connections to other people.  With this cell phone, it was truly possible to be connected OUTWARD at all times (even while on the toilet…TMI? oops).

One beautiful Spring day, I was walking back to campus from work, and I pulled out my trusty partner, my Cell Phone.

Yet, something stopped me from dialing.

I tried again…something prevented me from making that call.

And then I heard a Voice…it was warm, slightly chiding, with a rolling giggle underneath the words.

“You know my dear, you can put the cell phone down and dial my number ANY TIME.”

Whoah.

I felt shivers up and down my spine as if every cell in my body was vibrating.  Deep breath.

“You know my dear, you can put the phone down and dial my number ANY TIME.”

My first inclination was to hide in shame (now I know how Adam and Eve felt).  I felt naked before God, caught red-handed in a desperate attempt to fill ALL my time with outward connection.

Spirit’s invitation was to connect WITHIN.

With the Love, Light, and Wisdom that is inside all of us.  With my Inner Guidance, my Intuition.  With the Divine within.

“Okay God.  I hear you. I love you.  Thank you.”

I placed the cell phone in my backpack and proceeded to have a full on conversation with God.  Out Loud.  Whether or not others perceived me as the Crazy Lady walking down the street talking to herself.

And it was wonderful.

I did a lot of talking,  but most importantly…

I LISTENED…

to that still small voice inside of me

I LISTENED…

to my True Partner and Soulmate on this Life Journey

I LISTENED…

to the Voice of Unconditional Love and Acceptance

and I cried, and laughed, and learned…

Yes, I listened, and I dialed Spirit’s Number…

and realized that much more important than my Cell Phone, was my HOME Phone.

I Listened…and came Home.

    Wow, awesome post! I have been spending way too much time outwardly connecting lately on social media, and that same inner voice is guiding me to spend less time outwardly connecting. and more time, just like you, connecting to my inner guide. What a difference it makes. Thanks for the reminder.
