A Letter to Neale

Reader Question:

Dear Neale,

I recognize that there is no shortage of responses to your Conversations with God, but I still felt compelled to add my energy to the others. I come from a life history that includes decades of loneliness, self-loathing, and debilitating depression, culminating in chronic illness and "toxic drama."

During one of many major operations, I stopped breathing and was clinically dead for 16-20 minutes. I had what is commonly referred to as a near-death experience, which shifted my level of awareness so completely that I no longer am "Who I Was."

During my death journey, I watched the medical team work to resuscitate me; and as time progressed without success, I listened to them begin to construct an explanation for why they had lost me, to offer to my family. Highlights of my afterlife experience included a new understanding of how time works and how expansive our ability to know is; I saw that knowledge is limitless. At one point I was able to comprehend how this universe works, and, most incredible of all, I experienced what I can only describe as unconditional love, which is simply love without need.

I also encountered a Being of Light, or God-quite an occasion for a non-believer-who knew me intimately and loved me so completely, I cannot describe the feeling here. This Divine Being knew I didn't believe in His existence, knew I would argue about having to return to the body, and loved me nonetheless. The other profound revelation during this experience was that this divine source had a wonderful sense of humor, and that He delighted in mine.

This is a very condensed account of my death experience, and doesn't touch upon the affects it had on my life journey since. What I want to share here is that I have spent years trying to find something written that I could recognize as this God voice I encountered, without success-until now. Conversations with God contains God energy. It is the same language, the same unconditional love, and finally, the same sense of humor I remember from my experience. I laughed and wept as I read CWG. It was a homecoming for me.

Like so many people, painful losses and my own human fears have marked my life journey. I am still healing from the death of my marriage, and I am struggling financially. I do not know where I'm headed, but know I have a sacred contract to fulfill. My heart is open and the spirit is ready. What I do know is that I am committed to remembering "All That I Am" by how I present myself every day.

Lastly, I know from my teachings during my death experience that nothing is coincidental, and that a fine reminder of this was the arrival of CWG Book 1 in my life at a time when I needed it most.

Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to share my own personal life path with you, and to express my gratitude, for your hand in creating these two wonderful books.

Loving Light & Joyful Energy to you,
Rochester, NY.
