Conversations With God And Neale Donald Walsch

If I were to narrow down a list of my absolute favourite books — the ones that have rocked me to my core and changed the course of my life — Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch would be a sure-fire inclusion. When I read it the first time (and there’s been many re-reads since) almost the entire book ended up dog eared and highlighted. I found myself nodding along in agreement, even saying ‘YES!’ out loud, because everything I was reading was resonating so intensely with what I already knew to be true deep in my heart.

This book is my bible (big call, I know), but I cannot deny the potency as I return back to it time and time again. The reminders are potent, powerful, simple, and are articulated in such an easy-to-digest way that you can’t help but be catapulted back to love whenever you find yourself off course.

The author of this book — and the ‘voice of God’ — is Neale Donald Walsch, a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before experiencing his now famous conversation with ‘God’. The Conversations with God series of books that emerged from those encounters has been translated into 37 languages, touching millions and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.

Neale has since written 29 books on spirituality and its practical application in everyday life. Seven of those have reached the New York Times Bestseller List, with the first Conversations with God book occupying that list for over two-and-a-half years. (Crazy, cool!)

I was insanely excited to interview this amazing man, and our conversation did not disappoint. (I had goosebumps — or as I like to call them, ‘god bumps’ — the entire time!) Get ready for a spiritual awakening!

In this episode we chat about:

  • His journey and how he got to where he is today (05:00)
  • How the Conversations with God phenomenon came to be (06:55)
  • The passage from his book that brought my husband and I together (I wasn’t kidding when I said it was a ‘life changing’ book!) (14:30)
  • Neale’s foolproof strategies for dealing with challenges when they pop up (18:02)
  • The powerful spiritual tool that will change your life forever (I loved this so much!) (22:36)
  • How Neale deals with tough moments (and why what we resist persists) (26:18)
  • Neale’s favourite phrase that helps him move through adversity (28:52)
  • Are you really creating your own reality? (31:02)
  • Why being self-centered is the key to living your best life (37:12)
  • The one sentence to say to yourself before you walk into any room (40:00)
  • Why expectations ruin relationship (and how to ditch them instantly) (43:09)
  • Why forgetfulness is a great gift (47:28)
  • How and why sex is sacred (and how to use this extraordinary expression of love to enhance your relationship) (50:53)
  • The key to life (01:10:10)
  • Plus so much more!

Thank you so much for introducing this book and your knowledge to me, it has come at a point in my life where I really needed it. You're wonderful and such a beacon of inspirational light!

      I am a subscriber of the podcast and I was so surprised to see this podcast come up. I literally finished reading Book 1 of Conversations with God TWO days ago and just found it completely serendipitous that your podcast would be interviewing the author. This was so amazing! A true example of universal synchronicity. When the universe wants you to see or hear something it will make sure you do. I loved this podcast and I loved the book. Everyone NEEDS to read the series.

      I'm only half way through and it's already giving me so so so much! You can never hear enough that you aren't expected to be perfect, that the experience is ongoing and to be reminded into gratitude.
      Thank you God!
      Thank You Neale
      Thank you Melissa

      Ohhhh Mel, no words at the moment. The best podcast yet. I had conversations with god on my bookshelf for well over a year and only just read it a month ago. As soon as I finished I started it again. This just sings to my soul and makes perfect sense to me. Can't believe you got to chat with Neale. Thank you so much - I have never felt so awake in my 42 years in this life - I have a heart full of joy, love and purpose because I REMEMBER WHO I AM. Thank you so much. Xxxx

      Mel, thank you for interviewing this incredible man, I was so excited when I saw your podcast title as his book is on my bookshelf and I remember when I first started reading the very first few pages, I was blown away.

      I am so grateful for you and Neale and your wonderful podcast and work that you're both doing in the world, it inspires me so much.

      I will definitely be sharing this with people.

      Wow wow wow Melissa! This podcast has had such a profound effect on me. Thank you so much for introducing Neal to me and his message... or rather his approach to living.

      I have not been able to relate to religion or God in such a long time but Neal's approach has demystified it all. I still have a long, long way to go, but I am so glad to have taken the time to listen.

      Keep doing the AMAZING work you are doing.

        Thanks for your kind words Sasha. Remember, it's a journey and we have to have fun along the way, otherwise, what's the point!? That's what I think anyway. It's all about having fun on our path to engagement. xx

      Wow! Yes yes yes! I felt the same way Melissa. I resonated with every word

      Like all your interviews, simply great materials to share!

      Although his suggestions like what to do when you enter a room is great, I'm also interested in what sort of internal changes happened so that the thoughts and actions (e.g what would love do?) become second nature (a reflection) rather than the other way around. Showing kindness doesn't require a conscious effort coming from a kind soul. I'm not sure I'm making sense though.
