Our perception and understanding of God is based on our religious beliefs and upbringing. The belief system we are born into is normally where we stay. It will vary from person to person.
I try to imagine and comprehend the magnitude of the Infinite Divine Energy we have named God. I abandoned the concept of the judgemental God of the Abrahamic religions years ago and consider God’s Divine Energy encompasses all and love as the life pulse. We are all players in the game of life and may have a bigger impact on our world than we will ever know. It is always a challenge when reading sacred texts, realizing man has has somehow tampered with most. The purpose is either one of control or an effort to explain something more clearly. Either way we are here to figure it out for ourselves and the answer may be within each of us, just a heartbeat away.
I remember I was having doubts about my spiritual journey, and just wanted confirmation, something to give me a sign to continue. So one day last year in 2018, there was little or no chance of rain. During meditation I just wanted some evidence because sometimes the spiritual path is a lonely journey. I asked for rain, any amount for that day, just to let me know I was not alone. Afterwards, about 30 minutes later, I was sitting outside. Nothing was really happening. Then clouds started to form, which was not a big deal. Then a little thunder and few drops of rain started coming down. I felt indescribable joy. It really was happening. Then it started to rain and it rained five inches in 30-45 minutes. The news reported a cloudburst happened in a one square mile area and I was at the center.
We live in physical and metaphysical worlds, inseparable yet most of the time we realize only the physical. How many times have you spoken to God, perhaps in a prayer or meditation or just a discussion, and something happened based on that conversation. At first we may rule it a coincidence, but we have to remember we are an inseparable part of the Universal Consciousness . We are limited in the physical world by our five senses; see, feel, hear, taste and smell. Our metaphysical world is unseen or under the veil. Awareness of the metaphysical world, the unseen world, is helpful in understanding the Divine Energy that encompasses all. Our physical world is shaped by the positive and negative energy of our thoughts, emotions and actions. When we look at the physical world in isolation, we miss much of what is happening not only to the universe but within ourselves. Perhaps that is where we find God, that Divine Spark or energy in each of us; part of the Divine Universal Energy, Universal Consciousness.
God is just a heartbeat away and you can have a conversation anytime you choose. Trusting God is trusting yourself. Realize who you are; know you are part of this creation in your every thought, emotion and action.

What a beautiful post. I too have asked God for a sign, seen it, and then discounted it. A sad reality that has been going on since I was a young teenager. It is only in the last seven years that I really started to believe and trust – and my life has been so much better since.
I think we all see signs and then discount over time, not just once but many times. We are much like children and have to be reminded often. Thank you for reading and your wonderful comment.

Thank you for sharing your powerful and inspiring story of the rain, what an amazing and awesome sign for your answer! I think it is a story I will always remember, and just thinking of how you must have felt at that time brings me delight! <3
Thank you Trina for your kind words. It was an amazing sign that I use to remind myself of just how connected we all are to God. Five inches of rain truly got my attention and the emotions were indescribable.
