When I started writing my next book (coming out late 2018) I was determined to stay as close to science as possible, especially in regards to what happens to us when we die.
But the more I read and researched the more I saw something I didn’t expect.
However, I didn’t really say it out loud to anyone or even to myself.
Then one night I had a dream where God visited me.
I saw God take me by the hand and guide me under a doorway.
While we were walking under the doorway I received this message.
“I am here to take you into a new direction.”
Imagine my surprise when I woke up.
First of all, this was the first time I ever dreamed about God.
And second of all, I don’t consider myself religious, so this was, to say the least, unexpected.
But it got me questioning the things I believed in.
I realized that the God I believe in is not just a story inside a book or a prayer inside my head.
My God is my consciousness.
My God is light that travels across our cosmos.
My God also created my brain, my cells and my DNA through my consciousness.
I know this sounds unlike the biblical versions of what we are told.
But I think we all are talking about the same God.
Over the years I have received many emails asking me this one question:
“Christina, do you believe in God?” and whenever I said yes the response has always been “but how come you don’t talk about God in your blogs?”
My response to that always was “but I am.”
I think there are many ways to talk about God.
My way of talking about God is inside words like particles and atoms.
As well as light, molecules and consciousness.
God is consciousness and the observer in all of us.
It is also the creator of this beautiful universe.
Over the many thousands of years, we used story to express what God is.
The stories didn’t include the definitions of particles and quantum physics but they did showcase the unexplained, the unseen and the miraculous.
Now that we talk about atoms without adding story to it does it mean we don’t believe in a God?
In my humble opinion, we study God now more than ever before.
“Science—the science to which I’ve devoted so much of my life—doesn’t contradict what I learned up there. But far, far too many people believe it does, because certain members of the scientific community, who are pledged to the materialist worldview, have insisted again and again that science and spirituality cannot coexist.”
Atoms, particles, molecules and the study of them does not take God away from our lives.
As a matter of fact, it brings God closer.
It gives us even more proof.
‘My journey deep into coma, outside this lowly physical realm and into the loftiest dwelling place of the almighty Creator, revealed the indescribably immense chasm between our human knowledge and the awe-inspiring realm of God. The brain itself does not produce consciousness. That it is, instead, a kind of reducing valve or filter, shifting the larger, nonphysical consciousness that we possess in the nonphysical worlds down into a more limited capacity for the duration of our mortal lives.”
As the Bible explains in 2 Corinthians 4:18
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
This three-dimensional reality is nothing but a filtering process of the brain so we could experience life in this way.
But it doesn’t mean we should forget our powers and abilities to move mountains, do impossible feats and above all find God inside of us, inside the light that hits our retina and translates it into this physical reality.
As I remember my dream with God going under a doorway I realize that I take the reader through the most beautiful doorway in the beginning of the book.
I didn’t put two and two together until right this moment while writing this Star Letter to you.
If you are going to take something from this letter, let it be this message.
God is everything you think he/she is.
And everything you think he/she is not.
In between the seen and the unseen.
Before the big bang and after.
Inside time and space and always outside of it.
