If God Hears Me, I Want an Answer!
By Barbara Rose, PhD
It is important at this time that you know where I’m coming from, and that you know I am a regular human being just like you. So I am going to share with you how this all happened. How I learned about the process of getting answers from God, and the doubts, fears, and insecurities I went through. Everyone I have taught this process to went through the same thing.
How It Began
In 1994, I had a session with a highly spiritually evolved man named Bill Burns. He told me that I had the ability to bring through information from my Higher Self. I asked, “What’s a Higher Self?” He said, “Your Higher Self is the one you call God.”
I literally laughed in his face and said, “Are you kidding me? Why would God want to talk to me? I’m not Mother Teresa or the Dalai Lama. Why would God want to speak to ME?” He said, “You can’t understand or relate to this now. It’s not like you’re going to be some Madam Zelda with a scarf on your head and a crystal ball, but you will see that you will bring through information from God in your writings and in speech to uplift the spiritual consciousness of humanity.”
I looked at him as if he was from Pluto. Although I had deep respect for him, and do to this day, I didn’t understand what he was talking about, and I certainly did not believe that I could receive direct answers from God.
But I was curious. So I went home and did a writing: I asked God questions in writing and wrote down the answers I received as the words flowed into my mind. Even though I received answers that all turned out to be true, I dismissed the whole thing. I thought I was probably making it all up.
Then, life happened. Hardships happened. Injustice happened. A relationship happened, and I fell in love.
Now, if anything is going to get a person to really start asking God for answers, it is when he or she is in deep turmoil. I was writing letters to God every single day; many times, two, three, four, and even five times a day. I didn’t understand why the events in my life were happening. I didn’t know what to do or how to figure everything out, and I wanted answers!
I received tens of thousands of pages of answers. The only problem was my ego. I did not believe the answers were really coming from God. I kept thinking I was making it all up. Then I began to receive predictions. They were all on the personal level. Exact dates and times by which things would happen, all in advance. This happened for two solid years. During that time I seriously thought I had gone mad. I used to walk around the house and say to myself, “I must be insane. I’m probably just a harmless psychopath.” I really thought I was going crazy. I didn’t believe that the one God, creator of Heaven and Earth, would actually communicate directly with me.
So then in my writings I would ask for another prediction. It came true. Then another, and another. At one point, the words that flowed into my mind from God were, “Barbara, when will you finally believe? How many predictions do you need to come to pass?” And I would write, “Dear God, please just give me one more, and then I will believe.” So I received yet another one. But I still didn’t believe. This went on for two solid years. I was a tough nut to crack. Then I would write, “Dear God, what is going to happen this week?” I received another prediction. Once again, God brought the words into my mind that I wrote down verbatim. The words were, “When will you believe?” So I once again wrote, “Okay God, just one more prediction and then I will believe.” This was after receiving hundreds of them. So I received another prediction with the exact date and the latest time by which the event would occur on that date. For example, I was in a long, deep, and emotionally difficult relationship with a man I dearly loved and still do. He broke up with me, for about the twentieth time, and said that it was “over forever.” I really believed him because he sounded dead serious. I had even reached the point that I thought I had wanted it to be over forever. Then I wrote to God and asked, “Dear God, is the relationship really over? Please tell me it’s over, I can’t take it anymore. If it is, I can handle it. Please tell me the truth.” The answer I received was, “No, it is not over. He will call you to see you on Wednesday by 6:00 p.m.” After two solid years of predictions, when that one came to pass (I received a call from him on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. saying that he wanted to see me), my ego gave way as if a dam had burst open. I finally believed I was not making it all up.
Logically, I had to conclude that there was no way on this earth that I could come up with advance information documented for two solid years and be correct each and every time.
So I believed. But I had tremendous fear about what other people would think of me. I feared being viewed as some kind of New Age fruitcake. I feared how I would be viewed by society.
It was through my writings, and all of the information I received from God in my writings, that I was able to completely transform my entire life.
I had lost everything. There was a time I didn’t have a home, a car, or money for food, and my life was at the bottom of the barrel. My self-esteem and self-confidence were also at the bottom of the barrel.
God guided me in writing after writing about self-love, self-value, how to transform my life, what to do next, what to create, what to share, and what to write in books for humanity. God’s words flow into my mind, and I write them down verbatim. The process feels exactly like taking dictation. The only difference is that rather than hearing the words spoken out loud by someone, the words come into my mind silently, so it is like taking internal dictation. What I mean by “internal” is that I hear the words within my mind, exactly as you might hear God’s still small voice within your mind saying something such as “take this road home today instead of the one you usually take.”
The process of personal transformation was given to me by God through my writings, and I can guarantee that if there is any area or aspect of your life in which you would like to see, feel, and experience positive transformation, God will give you every answer in your own writings exactly as He or She does for me and for the countless other people I have taught this to who also receive direct answers from God every day of their lives.
It is also important for you to know that no matter what is upsetting you or what you may feel unsure about–even if you are not sure about the perfect words to say in reply to an e-mail–if it is important to you in your heart, you can ask God in writing for the perfect words to write, and then simply write down the answers as the words flow into your mind.
This is the beauty of the process. You can receive answers for anything that matters to you in your everyday life. You do not have to wait for an emergency. Here’s a good rule of thumb: if you’re not sure about something, ask God! There is one exception, however, and that is asking for predictions about future outcomes.

No matter WHAT life is showing you, you have at your disposal the UNLIMITED resource of your MIND to first picture, then FEEL, while you SEE WITHIN YOUR MIND all you d4esire your life to be. As you affirm this is what you want – and deserve – you will then have sudden inspiring impressions within your mind that God is literally guiding you to move into ACTION, one moment at a time.
The universe has no limits. YOU are an UNLIMITED Spiritual human being with direct access to all of the good you desire.
Your very first step is ONE SIMPLE DECISION – about how you truly want your life to be. ONLY YOU can DECIDE – see, feel, experience the strongest determination that WHAT YOU WANT IS YOURS – and this is the turning point when you refuse to remain stagnant at where you are, because this is the deciding moment in your life when you REFUSE your current reality (if you do not like any part of it) and affirm that THIS MOMENT is the beginning of the rest of your life.
ALL people have undergone great adversity prior to achieving the prosperity, health, joy, love, and LIFE they really desire.
USE YOUR ADVERSITY to bring yourself abundance while you help to transform it for all others who can relate.
EVERY book I wrote was the result of my pleas to God for the guidance to OVERCOME the adversity I was facing. I received the answers that flowed into my mind, that I simply wrote down with pen and paper. I then transcribed those writings from my journals into a Word Doc which became the identical manuscript for each book I brought through.
When you USE your adversity and ask for the higher perspective – you will certainly receive it! I literally used to log on to my own website to re-read the articles I brought through when I was crying myself to sleep most of the time. Re-reading the information given to be as the words flowed through my mind literally from God, TRANSFORMED ME!
I am no different from YOU! I do not have some kind of special ability! This is already built into every human being on earth! You receive within your mind that “still small voice” of inner guidance. THAT is God – not Aunt Edna.
When you receive the higher perspective, while you write it down, you are going to feel exactly as you do right now – you are going to feel like YOU! You are NOT going to go into some altered state of consciousness. You are NOT going to feel like you are sitting in a lotus position hovering over Mt. Everest. You will be fully aware of everything around you, but your mind will be fully engaged in the process of “taking dictation” while you write down every word you receive.
At some point the information will come to a natural stop. Go back and IMMEDIATELY re-read what you received that you wrote down TWICE – so you will be able to make out the words.
As you re-read, it will be like you are reading it for the first time, and you will be AMAZED AND ASTOUNDED at how helpful, practical, and down to earth the guidance is.
Soon I will be touring giving large keynotes and weekend intensive workshops to make sure I reach as many people on earth as I can – to share this process that completely transformed my life and millions of others.
If you want to read about the whole process, it is shared in the book If God Hears Me, i Want an Answer!
Additionally, I have recorded deep intensives live that are available for download at $9.99 US. Not trying to make a “sale” just sharing resources if you want to know more in depth information about this life saving and transforming process.
Sent to you with much love,
I just got an email from some “expert” and the beginning of the message read, ____ (name of person)
is sunning himself in Tuscany. Even the greats have to recharge sometime.
Ugh! What’s up with this “even the greats”. I honestly felt nauseated. After I read that I didn’t care about what he was offering or how low his price was. I clicked delete right away.
Let me humbly share with you that when I was super insecure I would try to somehow feel “better” because deep inside I felt less than the entire human race.
It does not matter WHO the person is – NO ONE is “greater” than YOU. A person’s title does not matter, their wealth certainly does not make them “more important” than you. I don’t care how many PhD’s a person has, or what awards they have won, all of that is fine and dandy, however, it does not in any way make them “better” than YOU or me, or anyone.
Our society has created some myth that one person is better than another based on external conditions. There is a saying I came across many years ago, “Be kind to the people you meet on your way up, because they will be the same people you will meet on your way down.”
That really stuck with me. And if anyone has experienced “down” it’s me. I would venture to say you may be able to relate, however, “down” is a temporary circumstance.
If you have been feeling down in life, and look at others who seem to not have a care in the world, use that as inspiration to create the very best life you truly desire to live.
Being “up” is a feeling we ALL deserve to experience. But there is a far greater feeling, and that is inner peace. We achieve inner peace by moving into our heart, and feeling the love that is there, then taking the next step we PREFER to take on this journey called our life.
I just wanted to share this with you and hope it helped you in any way.
Questions with Answers
1. How can I become awakened and enlightened?
2. What can I do when circumstances get the best of me?
3. What is the best practice I can do in order to achieve an enlightened state?
4. When I feel down and upset, how can I transform this into personal awakening?
5. What is the key to Christ Consciousness and pure enlightenment?
1. How can I become awakened and enlightened?
They way to awakening is to merge your thoughts with the Divine higher perspective. It is the way of anchoring the light of God, creator, within your mind. As you direct your mind to the light, and as your heart felt intention to serve as a being of light merges with your desire to become a living expression of Christ consciousness, God consciousness, this heart felt desire will help you to focus your mind on the light. When your mind is focused on the blessing even amid circumstances that are unpleasant, and when your mind seeks to serve and become one with your Higher Self, you are both serving God, as well as being an expression of God in your life.
This requires steady focus on what is going through your mind, and consciously re-directing your thoughts to the light. It calls for you to ask God to help you by seeing the higher perspective so that you can radiate out the higher rather than the lower perspective.
You came in to this life to attain your highest, purest and most loving state of being and expression. Release all attachment to outcomes. Commit yourself fully to being the light of the Creator in every moment of your life. Keep the thoughts in your mind pure, and your emotional body, mental state, and personality will then merge with and become an expression of the purest consciousness in this universe. This consciousness can never escape you, because it is you. Once you begin to live in this way every time your mind is focused on anything other than light, you will awaken. You will allow the enlightenment that is your essence to flow from within you, and you will serve yourself, others, as well as share with those who ask how to shift their minds focus to the light, where all answers, awakening and enlightenment is. You are this expression, and it is time now for you to live in this awakened state for eternity.
2. What can I do when circumstances get the best of me?
Many times, in fact, all times, circumstances that you are unhappy about have come into your life precisely so that you can find the light within that circumstance. I call this “strengtheners” as opposed to “testers.” It is your conscious choice to weaken or strengthen. The gift of free will and choice humanity has endows each spiritual human being with the ability to focus on the light behind the darkness, and to transform any dark circumstance into one of light.
This can only be done first with a decision within your mind. It is your heart felt commitment to discovering the higher reason, and moving in that direction that will enable you to become the best that you are as a result of the circumstances that have acted as catalysts for your coming into your highest and purest state of being and expression. This is your purpose. It is to be the light, under all circumstances, and to bring light to those circumstances. Then, you will be living and sharing the higher purpose. Personal and global transformation is the result of this, where light transforms darkness. And it is your mind, focus, dedication, and expression of this light that will serve to help uplift the lives of those who are undergoing circumstances similar to yours.
3. What is the best practice I can do in order to achieve an enlightened state?
First, breathe. Then ask God, your Higher Self, Holy Spirit, Source or whatever name you give to the source of the pure love, light and truth in the universe to help you see the light. When you ask for the higher perspective, and when you focus on light, and practice Higher Self communication on a daily basis, you will come to know that the practice is never a ritual. It is a pure state that comes from your heart to bring you into your highest awareness, awakening, and then inner peace will replace any internal discord you may feel.
Dedicate yourself to serve as a beacon of light from your heart. Share with others the higher perspective you have realized. Remember that no one person can ever be the source of your enlightenment. You are source, and it is in connecting to this unlimited, boundless and eternal expression of light with every thought, motive and deed that you will achieve an enlightened state. What your mind focuses on is the key combined with the purest intentions within your heart. BE the light.
Ask that light permeate every corner of your life, and consciousness. As your unwavering dedication to being this expression of Divine light and love continues, you will only feel light and love. You will then be enlightened and feel inner peace at all times, under all circumstances, because you will know that light is the source of all circumstances to help you to see the light that you are, which no outer circumstance can ever extinguish.
With compassion. Have compassion for yourself and all others. Have compassion for the circumstances that are there to help you honor your highest truth. When you feel down, it is usually because there is an external condition that your personality is not happy about. Go beyond the personality level, and ask for the higher perspective. This will end the cycle of internal discord. This will begin the cycle of seeing every circumstance from the Highest perspective which will free you from drama.
It will open your mind to the transformation that is about to be birthed from within you. Bless every person and circumstance as you view them to be catalysts for your personal and spiritual evolution. Once you have done this, you will no longer feel upset. You will feel free. This feeling of pure inner freedom that is never bound to a circumstance or situation is the result of personal awakening. View each time you feel down as an opportunity to move into the light of the higher perspective. It is from this vantage point that all internal upset will be transformed into internal peace.
5. What is the key to Christ Consciousness and pure enlightenment?
Your heart centered, pure motives as well as your unwavering dedication and commitment to become the physical embodiment of Christ consciousness every moment of your life. When your heart and mind are aligned in this manner, with steady focus on the light behind each circumstance, you will feel they key in your heart. The key is filled with the purest of love. To uplift yourself, and then to help others by example in any manner that is necessary. Show compassion instead of anger.
Give understanding. Remove yourself from all negativity. Be the light you wish to see in this world, and know one thing: You are not only an expression of the light, you are the light giving expression. This is the key. Remember it always, and live it with every breath you take. This path is filled with radiant inner peace. It is the path that yields the most joy as it naturally spreads joy to all others, regardless of space or time.
Consciousness transcends all space and time. When your consciousness is single focused, solely and completely on light and love – there will only be light and love, as well as the inner strength to carry it out every moment of your life. Others will remember your pure heart-centered example, and they too will awaken to and embody pure light, love, truth and the inner strength to carry it out until all of humanity lives in this way. And this, is the Christ Consciousness that is awakened within every human being. This is the time, and now, your decision to reach within your heart will engage your mind into its highest state, each moment, every moment, and thus, you will be the embodiment of pure enlightenment.

Humiliation does not even being to express the experience of being homeless. So I am going to share the lessons I learned that hopefully can spare you from such a degrading downfall.
The beginning of my downfall happened while I was living in an exclusive Country Club Penthouse. I had the entire floor to myself including an elevator that opened to my own private lobby.
Life was carefree. However, I had a serious bad habit of spending money as fast as it was coming in. I was never taught how to save money while growing up. I was only taught how to spend. Guidance from God flowed into my mind countless times to save twenty percent of my earnings and put it aside and to stop all non-essential spending. I, of all people, didn’t listen to that inner guidance.
When times were easy, I never dreamed it would come to a sudden halt. First I slipped and fell and broke my foot. The pain was terrible and I was not able to work as usual. Then female bleeding 21 days out of every month left me so drained that I could do next to nothing – but spend.
My weaknesses were watches, hand bags, boots and jewelry. I thought I was savvy when I learned how to shop wholesale. Spending $19.99 instead of $500 on items I did not need, but had to have. My ego was running the show, certainly not the higher wisdom I was repeatedly given.
I had been to the hospital as a result of my bleeding only to return home to find an eviction notice on my door. I ran out of money completely and was evicted. Without a place to stay, my car was my only option.
I was alone and scared. I had never been in this situation before and it lasted for ten months. When some money flowed in from book royalties I was able to go to a motel and spend a few nights. Then when I had no money left to rent the motel room, I was back in my car.
One night I decided to park in the back parking lot of the motel. I felt safe there and literally slept behind the wheel. I heard a knocking on my driver side window and saw a bright flash light. It was a police officer along with the motel manager.
I opened my window and told them I had just fallen asleep. The Officer flashed his light inside my car. It was jam packed with as much of my belongings that I could fit inside. He looked at me and asked me one question. “Are you living out your car?” The deepest humiliation and degradation filled my entire being. I could not even look at him and I felt so ashamed that I could not even answer him. So he asked me again, “Are you living out your car?” I looked down consumed with shame and shook my head with a silent yes.
He was extremely kind to me when he explained that the motel did not want people to sleep in their parking lot, but I could drive somewhere else that was safe and park my car there. I said, “Okay” and then I started my car and drove off in the middle of the night to an old neighborhood I used to live in and parked my car there.
The seasons passed from winter to spring to summer. I felt sub-human, left without any trace of dignity. When the temperature in my car read 103 degrees I almost died from the heat twice. I then spoke with a gentleman who worked at a 24 hour store and told him I was homeless. He said he knew someone who had a room to rent in his house. I felt like a lit Christmas tree inside. Hope at last! The next day I went to the house and rented the room. The house was horrible, but it was far better than my car.
I was still bleeding, and then months later the doctor who delivered my children gave me a procedure that stopped the female bleeding completely. He told me, “I am not charging you one penny for this – my number one patient.” Words cannot express the gratitude and love I have for this Doctor.
I was still quite shaken up inside from my living, or rather existing experience. Anxiety and fear consumed me. Yet in the following months, I started to slowly come back to myself.
During months of reflection on the whole experience I learned a lot that I am now going to share with you.
Now, I want to share with you about fancy expensive living.
When I lived in that exclusive penthouse condo, it was not all that it’s cracked up to be. The walls were paper thin, and I heard EVERY noise the couple who owned the condo that backed by bedroom wall made.
I heard them pee! I heard their telephone ring as if it was right next to my own bed. I heard their television.
Then at 4:00 AM, every single morning, I heard the loud noise of the machines that prepared the grounds of the golf course for the residents who played golf.
At the time of this writing I rent a room from another very nice home in an entirely different area. I know my life is back on the upswing and finances will increase again. My goal is to buy a nice but humble home for cash, so I have zero mortgage.
With the home foreclosure nightmare in the United States, there are literally millions of homes that are priced as they were twenty five years ago, which translates to LOW. Never again will I pay expensive rent.
The term “minimalist living” resonates with me now because I lost all I owned in my penthouse condo. I gave away my huge library of books, and donated thousands of books to charities because they were all in storage and the fees were extremely high. So I thought to donate to those in need before the storage company auctioned off almost the entire contents of my home, which they did.
What hurt the most was seeing my children’s toys being loaded onto the truck that was owned by the couple who paid at auction. However, my children were away in college, so that eased the blow. Storage companies are inhumane! My God, the least they can do is allow children’s items to remain. But they don’t give a damn about anything except money.
Although I lost nearly everything materially, I gained so much. What did I gain? I gained freedom from feeling the need to buy material things and acquiring possessions for no reason.
Life is much simpler now. With simplicity comes ease. No financial burden. I gained a higher perspective on spending with new wisdom that I will only spend on what is essential.
I have not used a credit card in twenty two years, so I have zero credit debt. I highly suggest if you have credit cards to cut them up and consolidate any debt while you learn how to live below the financial means you have.
I had to share this experience with you because I felt like it was a dark degrading secret I have been holding inside. I needed to let it out and I pray that it helped you in any way.
There are still positive rippling effects of my experience that I implemented to serve and help humanity. I lowered the prices of everything on my website, all book, live recorded seminars, and love offering buttons for live seminars for people who cannot afford the regular registration tuition.
It feels GOOD to care about humanity and do all I can to help to ease the financial burden for anyone who needs it.
My feelings of shame, humiliation and degradation are behind me. I feel much more humble – and this is a good thing. My life’s mission will continue as a soul who is one with humanity for humanity. This is what is most important in my life’s work and it does bring the greatest joy.
I wish YOU every joy life can offer. I am here to serve and help you. This is what ignites my heart and I hope what I have shared ignites something positive in yours.
