As I was getting ready to write you this Message in a Bottle…

I started writing a letter to God/Universe/Divine Power.

And what happened surprised me.

I nearly did not publish this letter.

But I think I did not receive these answers for myself.

So think of me crazy if you must…but if some people get helped from this.

It would be so worth it.

So here it goes:

Dear God,

It is so hard to see so many hurting people.

So many people suffering every single day.

You see them everywhere…in the streets.

On the busses.

Through windows.

In far away countries.



And it is endless.

Dear God I really don’t like this.

I really don’t like it at all.

How can we make it a little easier?

Just a tiny bit easier.

So we can carry the load.

I am not asking you to take it all away…

but just to lift it up a bit so we could learn to reenter to life.

So we could go on a little longer and have some hope.

I know we have so much to learn here on this earth.

And I do know that grief is a big teacher.

And as I am writing this letter to you, I am receiving these answers…oh wow.

I am getting your responses…(and I was getting these answers come through…I was not expecting this)

You are telling me that we have the same power as you.

That WE ARE God and that if we choose LIFE our burdens will get lighter.  

You have been trying hard to show us that we have the ability to change our lives.

present momentBut we still feel powerless.

So God if you could speak to us what would you say?

If you could show us the way where would you have us go?

There is no direction.

No certain path.

Everyone can choose to go the way he wishes.

As long as we believe in ourselves and we are aware of the powers that we have within.

Then the path would be the right one.

You know God what I believe in…I believe in plugging into life day in and day out.

No matter the pain and the sorrow.

Life is there for the taking.

And I know this is not easy to do.

What should I tell the world about rejection, disappointment, heartache and repeated loss?

We keep asking why?

You will never find the answer just by asking.

The only way this is ever going to work is by believing and doing.

You should never take life for granted.

You have to fight for it, when you lose it.

And you have to love it when you have it back.

 And this is the message you should continue to share.

And I shall continue to share this message forever.

With life,

    I will say that you are definitely right except we cannot claim to be God because God alone is God and if you usurp His authority He will not give us any power. The Bible says that we are “gods” little g…but we are not God big G! We are the body of Christ no doubt…but you certainly didn’t hear from God when you prayed you heard from the enemy of our souls…Satan who comes to steal kill and destroy life…If you truly care about reentry to life then you wouldn’t be trying to deceive people. What about those here that are Christians like myself….do you want to lose those clients because of your own deceiving beliefs. The devil is the prince of the power of the air which also means he is in the universe deceiving minds…don’t bring these innocent souls down with you because this life is NOT all there is….eternal life is what we are to hope for and live for everyday.

    • Jane says:

      Whoa, Robyn. Like you, I’m a Christian. God sent me to Christina for her help. He made it very clear through many many hours, days, weeks, months of praying that this was who was to help me. I have no doubts whatsoever about that. I don’t think we can say that someone “certainly” did or didn’t hear from God…that’s not our place. Jesus taught us that it’s not our place to judge, that right is reserved for God alone. I’m sorry to disagree with you, but I don’t for one moment believe God would be so clear about telling me that Christina is the one to help me learn to truly live this life he has given me if he thought she had “deceiving beliefs” or instructions from the devil. I live my life under the rule and reign of God and he knows that. Why would he give us life for us to waste it hiding away?? That’s very poor use of a princely gift and really quite offensive. I very strongly believe God delivered me directly to Christina’s care and she has only ever spoken to me in faith, love, grace and with a strong spirit of caring and gratitude to God for giving her the gifts to be able to help others. As a result of this firm belief, I can’t believe for one moment that Christina is “bringing innocent souls down”…if anything, she is lifting us up in honor of the gift God has given us…life!! God bless you.

    Hmmmm, Jesus said we can do all the things he did and more. That tells me we also have the abilities of God if we have believe in and have the faith in ourselves. Efgo, we are gods and goddesses. I say I am spiritual as this allows for exploration where I am not bound by rules, judgements and fear of offending any God. I used to call myself a Christian, but I am personally never again identifying as a religious person because of all the fear, fluid rules and judgements. In the vein of calling oneself a”christian”, my trust is completely gone in religion as a way to identify those living by a higher moral code. That is because those who have called themselves that have repeatedly wounded and screwed me (and friends and family) worse than non-christians. This is a Christian founded nation, yet our government allows much suffering and calls christian values ‘socialism’. I would love to be proved wrong. I am attracting and working through my lessons and issues and ALL of us are, at the core, human. Religion, to me, is another phase of evolution. I wish EVERYONE well.

    Robyn, I think you misunderstood her. I hope if you read the letter again, you’ll see it through different eyes. Love, Light & Hugs.
