Experiencing God's Love

Mother Clare Watts, author of the article: Experiencing God's Love

Nothing will ever be more transformative and life-changing than having your own powerful and direct experience of God. Such an experience changes all your speculation about what is real and what is of value into first-hand knowing.

No one else’s theology or opinions will matter anymore because you will know in your very bones what is true. Then you will be a mystic – one who knows God, knows your own inner being, knows about souls and about the heaven world, all from your own experience. This is a blessed state in which all you ever need and the root of all you could ever want is fulfilled from the God-center inside your own being.

Having A Real Experience of God

Some people have deep and real experiences of God without having done hardly any inner work to prepare for it. Most often, such spontaneous revelations occur when a person has a near-death experience or a major life event. If you don’t want to wait and hope for such a blessing to come your way while facing the very good chance that it won’t, you may want to do the preparatory work needed to open the way to such a first-hand experience of God.

God cannot be manipulated or forced, but God can be invited and induced to want to come and begin a personal relationship with you. What can you do to induce God to bring you into God’s presence where you can see and know God?

Becoming Pure In Heart

The first step is to clear your heart of negation. As Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” How do you become pure in heart? Begin by knowing your own heart. You need to be willing to feel your feelings and acknowledge what you hold in your heart.

You don’t need to begin with a pure heart, or none of us would have a chance, but you do need to be willing to clear out of your heart all the negative emotions you hold there. Though this may sound like an overwhelmingly large task, you will receive an enormous amount of help from the heaven world if you decide to dedicate yourself to this work. For every step you take toward cleansing your heart of all negativity, God, Jesus, Mary and the angels will all rush toward you to help you out. You simply need willingness and dedication to the task as well as the humility to allow yourself to be helped by others who know the way.

Experiencing the Love of God

God will begin to reveal God’s self to you quite early in your efforts to experience God. You will have many small confirmations that God is seeing, hearing and helping you. You will begin to feel God’s love and the presence of Jesus or Mary not long after you start to open to them.

You will need to develop your subtle spiritual senses to feel them, as they only rarely appear to people’s physical eyes. As you open your heart to them, as you clean out of your heart all that is cold, closed, bitter, hard and dark, you will begin to experience the gentle, clear and the powerful love of God.

You will need help because everyone has blind spots in which they cannot see their own issues and obstacles. Seek out the help you need. Accept the help God sends you. Open in humility and dedication, and you, too, can become pure in heart and see and experience God. It is a promise from one who knows.
