“This was the beginning of a journey back to myself.”
Crazy story for me and my experiences with the CWG books! I first encountered Neale’s original book back around 1998 or thereabouts on a coffee table at my friend’s house. I was waiting around, bored, so I picked up Conversations with God and began reading to kill some time. Right from the intro, it seemed as though it was speaking directly to my soul. It was so profound that I swore I was going to find this book and read the whole thing. Problem was, it was not available anywhere I looked. I eventually forgot about the book but from time to time over the years, it would pop back into my mind and I would go on another search but my efforts never turned anything up. Around 2011 I was in a bad car accident. The pain took over and I was trapped in a horrible state of negativity.
Life’s events had built up over the years and the accident tipped the scales. I was beginning to explode. I was a literal sidewalk rager, angry at the world and attracting a lot of that energy right back to me. I was in desperate need of something, anything, to come along and lift me out of my funk. That’s when I remembered the book. After all these years, those few words still stuck with me but the problem was, that it had been so long, I could no longer remember the title or the author for that matter. It was driving me nuts!! I googled spiritual books; I searched bookstores, but the name eluded me. I complained to a friend who then recommended another book that really helped her. I decided to purchase this book on iTunes and opened up the app.
Guys, I kid you not, I opened iTunes and there was Conversations with God on the front page, just waiting for me. Hairs all over my body stood up. Of course, I immediately purchased it!!
This was the beginning of a journey back to myself. The series of Conversations with God books has taught me so much. I think the one of the biggest shifts for me was learning about my own energy and how my thoughts, whether negative or positive will heavily influence my experience with the rest of the world. You attract what you put out there. As soon as I read this, I just understood and life around immediately began to change. People stopped pissing me off. I didn’t rage down the sidewalks angry at the world for neglecting common courtesy. I just decided to stop being mad about it and all of a sudden people began smiling at me, saying thank you for opening the door them etc. It was a dramatic and immediate shift.
As I continued my reading I learned that I need to be extremely mindful of my words and thoughts because they quite literally create my reality. This is still a work in progress for me as I was raised in a very “cup half empty” family and I have been conditioned to think a certain way. None the less, I have began creating a life of positivity and I now understand that the only thing that was ever in my way was me and my thoughts creating an undesirable outcome. These books have brought me success, peace and understanding and without them, my journey to where I am now would have taken a lot longer.
The experiences I have summarized here are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the CWG series. I can promise that anything you may struggle with in life is addressed in these books. It is an incredibly open minded, open hearted book about literally everything – from religion, sexuality, politics, energy, power of thought, family dynamics, death, heaven hell, the list goes on….No matter where you are in life, you will find value within these pages. And don’t worry about remembering the name, the book will find you when you are ready for it. Funny enough it even says that in the book…and I can attest to that!!.
