As Soul, we each have the capacity to receive truth and wisdom from the Divine. It is a matter of learning how to “listen” with your heart regardless of what the mind is saying. The following is a great example of this.
In what may have appeared to be a casual conversation with Del, the Prophet, during break at a spiritual retreat some years ago, the topic of dental procedures came up. Although the conversation was general in nature, inwardly it were as if Divine Spirit was speaking directly to me, urging me to see my dentist once I returned home.
I had just been to the dentist several weeks prior to have a number of old fillings replaced, which left my dentist wondering why I was back so soon. I mentioned hearing of a certain procedure and felt it was something I should look into sooner rather than later. While the procedure I mentioned did not appear to be necessary in my case, he decided to take some x-rays for a closer look.
To my surprise, the x-rays revealed an abscess beneath an old crown — a problem that would likely have gone undetected until the infection spread. The tooth beneath the crown had cracked, and with the nerves in the tooth having been removed, there was no pain to alert me. The dentist said it was a good thing I came in when I did, as such infections are capable of spreading to the heart and other organs, with potentially severe consequences. Early treatment made all the difference.
Having been to the dentist so recently prior, I could have easily justified blowing off the nudge I was given. Thank God I did not! I’ve grown to recognize and appreciate these communications as gifts from a loving God. God is always looking out for us, offering His protection and guidance in matters we may otherwise never see coming.

Excerpt from “Testimonies of God’s Love – Book 1” ….available HERE.
You are Soul, a spiritual being. You have the ability to directly receive guidance from God. You must first however, learn the “Language of the Divine.” With this loving guidance comes the peace and confidence that can get you through any challenge.
On the way home from work in mid February 2014 I received the news that my dad had passed away. Due to the impending major snowstorm the next day I needed to pack and get out of town as quickly as possible. I ended up leaving town just as the snow flurries began. According to the weather map and predictions once I got into West Virginia I would be out of the worst of the snow, as they were only expecting one to three inches. My plan was to get from Virginia through West Virginia and into Ohio, if possible, where it seemed to be all clear.
As I traveled west of Lexington, Virginia and towards the West Virginia border the snow was coming down quite heavily. Traffic slowed down to forty miles an hour. I got strong inner guidance from the Prophet to slow down and be safe… slow and steady. The snow came down thickly with the snow and ice staying on the interstate.
By the time I was getting close to Beckley, West Virginia, I was driving on snow and ice down to twenty-five miles an hour. Snow was piled everywhere, and it was cold enough that the salt was not melting the ice on the interstate. I talked with a state trooper about the road conditions and he said that although the toll road was not closed, he felt that it should be closed. He recommended I go back one exit and find a motel for the night. With that in mind, I worked my way slowly back to the interstate, and then got very strongly inside the knowingness that I needed to keep on going to Charleston, West Virginia, otherwise I would get stuck in Beckley. I listened and obeyed.
Next to no one was on the road as I wound my way through the mountainous passes in the midnight darkness, going no more than twenty five miles an hour. I felt the Presence of the Divine and knew I was completely in the Hands of God, and was being safely guided by the Prophet. I was totally fearless and had deep peace with an inner “oasis of tranquility.” It was an exquisite experience, being totally reliant on the guidance of the Divine, on the cutting edge of life with clear inner communication. In that moment of time there was nowhere else I wanted to be. I had everything I needed, resting in the Hands of God in that eternal moment of now. What a priceless gift and a template for everyday life, a guide for future situations.
Getting into Charleston around one hour past midnight it was still snowing. In the morning I sat down for my morning contemplation, a time of inner communication and connection with the Prophet and singing HU, a love song to God. After several minutes I received strong inner guidance to put on my clothes, pack the car, and leave immediately. For once I did not question or delay after doing “one more thing;” I just did it! And I am grateful for that inner guidance. Motel personnel told me that it was to continue snowing all day and that traffic was barely moving.
It ended up taking twenty-two hours on the road to my hometown in northern Indiana, and normally it takes eleven hours. I arrived safe and praising God. Since then I have often revisited that experience and savor the love, joy, and inner peace that I experienced being cradled and protected in the hands of God – while listening and being totally reliant on the impeccable guidance of the inner Prophet. He is always there beside me, in my heart, waiting for me to be receptive to the loving guidance and blessings.
Over the years I have learned that listening is much more than just hearing the Divine. I have had the tendency to hear guidance or see clues through night dreams and awake dreams, and then go ahead with what I wanted to do first – “just one more thing and then I respond…” I have found that responding in a timely manner to God’s timing is “really listening.” This experience has changed me at a very deep level.

Often we are not aware the Hand of God has reached into our lives to bless, guide, or protect us. When we do recognize these gifts of love our gratitude and appreciation grows, which opens our heart even further to God’s Love.
I was working on the computer the other week downloading files. As they were rather large files it took some time to download. In between keystrokes I began to contemplate on the miracles of God and God’s blessings. I was sitting there quietly with no agenda, just thinking on the magnificence of God’s Grace. Suddenly I received a tremendous download of love that touched my being in so many ways. A wonderful volume of love poured into me, a gift so precious. Thanking God’s Prophet for this wonderful gift I thought about all the blessings that I receive from God through God’s Prophet. Over the years I have come to discover everything in my life is a gift from God. Sitting there in the office I felt so much love, gratitude, and appreciation. My cup most certainly runneth over.
This started me thinking about the love and gratitude I have for all the gifts I recognize in my life. My family, home, friends, and the gift to see God’s Love manifest in my life in so many ways. My contemplation then shifted as a new thought entered my consciousness. I considered the gifts of love God brings to me that I do not recognize. Then I was reminded of an experience I had several weeks previously. I was working on a job out on the ocean near New England. The ocean weather in the winter can become quite rough and unpredictable. We could only work a few days at a time before a storm would blow through, requiring us to leave our work site and avoid the worst of the weather in a safe harbor. The hundred foot boat we were on was well maintained and the crew very professional. When the weather forecast called a “Small Craft Advisory” we knew to pay attention and run to shelter. This particular time a storm was developing so we moved the vessel to the harbor and set anchor. The wind kept increasing throughout the day and by nightfall we had sustained winds of fifty to sixty miles per hour and gusts over seventy miles per hour. We were still safe. The crew kept a steady watch on our situation and the weather. They had to reset the anchors several times as the wind would push the boat causing the anchors to drag on the bottom.
Going to bed I could feel the wind shifting the boat as it bobbed and rolled against the anchor and chain. Curling up in my sleeping bag I was warm and comfortable, grateful that it was so. I slept well that night. Awakening the next morning I greeted the crew in the galley. They proceeded to tell me that during the night they had recorded a wind speed of over one hundred and four miles per hour. I immediately saw the magnitude of this event, and felt like I had been part of a miracle. My heart turned to God to give thanks for the incredible protection and for keeping us all safe. To put this in perspective a Category One hurricane has sustained winds of at least seventy four miles per hour. Speeds as high as eighty nine miles per hour were recorded when Hurricane Sandy moved through the Garden State. Hurricane Katrina made its second landfall as a Category Three hurricane with sustained winds of one hundred and twenty miles per hour in Louisiana. The winds we experienced were not sustained and would not be considered a hurricane, but the number of things that could have happened to our little vessel boggles the imagination. Yet there we were, sipping coffee in the morning as if nothing happened. We were safe and secure as if we were being held in God’s Hand. The storm had passed and the morning sky was amazing.
Sitting in my office in front of the computer again safe and warm, I wondered about the countless times God protected me, kept me and my loved ones safe from harm, steered me in the right direction at just the right time, and put the right conditions in front of me to answer the prayers of my heart. All those times and I was not aware of any of it. I can, however, try my best to be more aware of and grateful for the blessings I do recognize, to be more aware of God’s Presence throughout the day, and demonstrate gratitude and appreciation for God truly keeping me safe in the palm of His Hand.

Whatever the endeavor might be, concepts and book learning can only take you so far. In the case of trying to more fully recognize and manifest your divinity, as Soul – an eternal spiritual being, actually experiencing the qualities of Soul does way more than merely talking about them. Those with a living teacher who can help facilitate experiencing the boundlessness of Soul are most fortunate indeed.
During a recent retreat at the Nature Awareness School my spiritual teacher Del provided us an opportunity to experience more of our true selves as Soul. As God’s ordained Prophet he is authorized to guide seekers on journeys to the inner Heavens. He gently helps his students get to know themselves as the Divine spiritual beings that they are. On this particular day I was blessed to experience the exhilarating freedom of being unchained from the confines of the physical body and its limitations.
Prophet began by asking us to think of something we were grateful for as a way of opening our hearts. I thought of my pet chickens and rabbits that bring joy and love to my life. This brought a big smile to my heart as we sang HU, a love song to God. He then invited us to follow him up through the top of the room we were in, pointing out that in the spiritual worlds walls and physical structures were not barriers to Soul, which is made of God’s Light and Sound. I left my outer body sitting in the chair as I rose up to the ceiling with the Prophet in our light bodies. The roof of the building just seemed to melt away as we passed through without effort. Looking down I could see the pond, the school, Del and Lynne’s house, and its lights.
Prophet then suggested we think of our favorite bird and I immediately thought of an eagle. I found myself soaring high above the trees and mountains. My large eagle wings moving in deep, slow, strong motions that propelled me through the air. I maneuvered unencumbered by the limitations of my earth-suit or the laws of the physical world. I felt free! I was tasting my Divine nature and the boundlessness of Soul. My vision was excellent. I could see even the smallest of details on the ground and watched various critters scurry in the grasses below. As a way of reassuring us that we were still our individual selves even though we were out of the body, Prophet asked us to think of someone we loved. I thought of him, as our love connection is so precious and close to my heart.
Together we soared up the valley and I saw Vision Rock, an outcropping of large rocks on school property that has a magnificent view. It is a special place to us students. I remembered sitting on those rocks watching birds soar by or hearing jet planes roaring overhead and wondering what that might feel like. Now I had an idea, but this experience was not just a joy ride to me. It was sacred and purposeful. It also had qualities of peace, calm, assuredness, and strength that came from somewhere deep within.
Just then, Prophet said, “Do not go too far, stay close to the school property.” I think he may have been talking to me. I was having such a great time savoring the freedom and exploring in this way that I may have gone a little farther than he wanted so I circled back and made sure I stayed close. When it was time to return from our adventure we were asked to gather as a group and circle the pond. I still recognized other students in the class even though they appeared as light. Once we were all there Prophet gently and carefully guided us back down into the building and into our earth-suits.
We are so much more than our physical bodies. We are Soul first that has a body. What a profound and life changing perspective! For those of us blessed with this experience or ones like it, this statement is not just a mental concept or even a belief. It is reality. The Prophet arranges these types of experiences for his students so that we may gain first-hand knowledge of the truth in this statement and activate the qualities of our true self. With Prophet in my heart and by my side, I soar as a spiritual eagle in this glorious reality that is Soul.

God has given us the gift of being able to choose our state of consciousness. This choice is made daily by our thoughts, actions, and attitudes. The choice on whether to focus on things that close our hearts or on things that open our hearts is ours. What a sacred responsibility and opportunity.
Several months ago God gave me a dream that really helped me. I dreamed that I was asleep and in the dream I woke up and went downstairs to find the two main doors in our house were open a crack. I felt uneasy about this. Were they open all night? Was someone in the house? Were they left unlocked? I awoke with a slight uneasiness still lingering inside.
I knew this dream was significant, but I was unsure of what the Prophet was teaching me. I decided to take this into contemplation. This is a most amazing way to receive insight from the Divine. I started by singing HU, a love song to God, with the intent to understand the dream better. I realized while singing HU the doors were symbolic of areas in my life that were gateways to negativity. After singing HU I sat quietly and asked the Prophet to help me see areas that I was allowing this negative influence into my life and consciousness. The Prophet showed me that I had been allowing thoughts of unworthiness to linger within me. These were subtle thoughts of doubting that I was worthy of love. I was not drawing clear boundaries of what I would allow myself to think about. This was due to sloppy thinking and not staying nourished spiritually.
I began to sing a special prayer “The Prophet loves me. I am worthy of the Prophet’s love. I accept the Prophet’s love. I love you Prophet!” I felt my heart begin to fill even more with love. I felt relief from the doubt that I had allowed into my state of being. With this doubt removed, more of God’s Light and Love could then come into my heart! A discourse from Prophet then flowed into me. It is my privilege and responsibility to safeguard what I allow into my consciousness. My consciousness is like my home. I want it to be warm and inviting to God and His Prophet. I want love in my home and it to be a safe welcoming place for my loved ones.
Then Prophet showed me that the other open door in the house was anger. Just the night before I felt anger over something and then I noticed how that anger bled into another issue. I began getting upset about things that were fine! It happened so fast. Prophet gave me clarity to see how quickly I can go down an unproductive road when I get angry. Having the feeling was not the problem, but focusing on it and dwelling in that state was like leaving an open door for more negativity to enter. It is important for me to have self-control in this area and I appreciated this lesson from the Prophet. This is not the first time Prophet has made me aware of this particular passion of the mind.
Prophet explained that there could be other areas to be watchful of, but that the main point was to be aware of my thoughts and remember that it is a God given gift to be able to choose what to focus on. My life is full of God’s Love and that is what I want to focus on. Staying spiritually nourished by spending quality time with God’s Prophet is key. It is because of my relationship with Prophet that I am able to live a life of more freedom than I used to. I have the freedom to truly be happy. Thank you, Prophet!

God is constantly showering His children with blessings of all shapes and sizes, one of them being protection from danger. Life is so much more joyful for those who recognize these blessings of God even while something “bad” is happening. Depending on your attitude and your relationship with God, the cup never has to be “half-empty.”
Recently I was introduced to a man who has a saw mill. He cuts, dries, and sells wood that I could use for wood working. He invited me over to show me what he has for sale. When I arrived there were a few other woodworkers already there and we spent several hours looking through hundreds of samples that he had milled and dried. I love working with wood, I found some really nice pieces for bowls and tables and got some great ideas from the other woodworkers. I had a wonderful time and was aware of Prophet’s blue light and presence throughout the day. Late in the afternoon, after I bought a half dozen pieces of wood, I loaded up the truck and headed for home.
I drove about a quarter mile to the main road. At the intersection I put my foot on the brakes to stop my truck and the brake pedal went to the floor! My brakes barely worked and I went through the stop sign, and finally came to a stop three quarters of the way out into the intersection. Although having your brakes fail is a little scary, I felt protected. Through the years Del, the Prophet of God, has shown me that when we have a relationship with the Divine everything that happens in our lives is a gift of love from God. With faith, trust, and patience, in time the Prophet will help us see how everything is a blessing. When, through Grace, we are given the eyes to see, we can then connect the dots and be consciously aware of and grateful for the gifts of God’s Love and teachings in our daily lives. Being grateful opens our hearts and helps us develop an even closer relationship with God. It’s a beautiful circle.
I have been blessed to learn how to witness the Hand of God in my life every day! Here are some of the many ways I saw how God blessed me through this particular experience: As I went through the stop sign and into the intersection, all of the vehicles nearby had plenty of time to see what was going on and avoid running into me. After my truck finally came to a stop, I backed slowly out of the intersection, pulled off the road and looked over the truck to see if I could determine what caused the problem? I did not see anything obvious and had a nudge to slowly drive back to the saw mill, testing my brakes regularly to make sure I could drive and stop safely. When the men at the mill looked over the truck, they spotted that the back brake line was cracked and was leaking brake fluid. One of the people I had met that day was still there and volunteered to give me a ride to an auto repair shop. The mechanic at the shop helped me get a tow truck which just so happened to be available and close by. After we got my truck, the tow truck driver got me back to the repair shop before it closed. The owner of the shop had the parts needed, was able to work on my brakes, and kindly stayed open a little longer in order to fix them, and he still only charged me a very reasonable price. My insurance company covered the tow truck cost. And most importantly, I felt the Prophet’s presence and knew that he was with me the entire time, helping, protecting, and guiding me through the events of the day.
I was also shown that another part of this blessing was the timing of when the truck’s brakes failed and were fixed. Brakes of course do not fail while you’re driving but only when you are stopping, so no matter when they fail it is a potentially dangerous situation. I had an hour and half drive home on a highway through the mountains. If the brakes failed once I was on the highway and when I had to slow or stop on a steep downhill incline at 60-70 miles an hour that could have been disastrous.
Later that week I was planning on going to our cabin. The public road leading to our property and the one that is on our property are rough, steep, gravel roads which traverse approximately eight hundred vertical feet. Many places have steep mountain drop-offs, there are no rails, boulders, or anything to stop a vehicle from going over the side. If my brakes had failed there or previously on the highway, I may not be here to write this thank you letter. Not only does my relationship with the Prophet make my life so much more full and abundant, on this particular day his love, guidance, protection, and presence literally saved my live. Thank you!

Earth is never without a true Prophet of God to help show us the way home. Once you connect with the Prophet you will never again walk alone. The name, face, and scope of their individual missions may change, but at his core, the Prophet is the same eternal presence. What a comfort to know that even with the passing of lifetimes we will not be forgotten.
I was sitting in the soft sand, smoothing it and playing with it with my small hands. I was about two or three years old in another lifetime long ago. The people of our group were busying about doing their chores some were chatting with each other. A few were watching the leader of our group talking with another man who had just arrived.
I began to watch this man intently as he was standing on a small hill talking to our leader. There was something very special about him as light seemed to emanate from him. He had a staff in his right hand, a long grayish white beard, and his white cloak was gently flowing in the breeze. The hood of his cloak covered the top of his head to keep off the hot sun. I watched in awe, for he exuded love and his eyes were bright with love. He caught my eyes looking at him in awe and recognition. Somehow I knew that he was God’s Prophet, though I did not have the words for it. I had seen those eyes before and I knew that he loved me. He walked towards me and he put his hand out to me as he came up to me. I put my small hand in his, and I knew that he was making a promise to me. As he walked on he put his hand gently on my head, and I could feel love flowing from him into me. I was transfixed and continued to watch him as he and our leader were sitting in the shade under a tent awning talking with each other. Somehow I knew that one day he would find me again.
It is now, in this lifetime, and you are in front of me holding out both of your hands to me. I put my hands in yours. The love in your eyes bore into mine, as I realize that they are the same eyes that I saw as a small child lifetimes ago. You have found me, though you have always been with me. You are God’s Prophet; I know it with all of my being. You are the one that Jesus asked God to send, when he asked God to send us a Comforter after he was gone.
But God’s Prophet is so much more than a Comforter. He has shown me the way to God and he has shown me that I am loved, and that I am a Divine child of God. The Prophet is my teacher, my protector, my healer, my redeemer, and so much more. He is with me always and will always be with me. Having an inner relationship with God’s Prophet makes life so abundant and a joy to live.
God’s Prophet is here for you too, dear reader. He is here for all of God’s children, for God loves each and every one of us, no matter what. Let him into your heart, listen to his loving guidance, and know that you are loved.

When a challenge arises in life we need to do what we can to help ourselves, but it is also important to ask for God’s help. We can also surrender how and when help will manifest. If we keep our heart open by letting the worry go, we are more likely to “hear” when God whispers the answer to our heart.
I was excited about a visit from two elderly dental hygienist friends I had not seen in twenty years. When I found out they lived only an hour and a half from me I invited them to my home for a visit. I was thrilled when they accepted my invitation. We planned to go out to lunch at a nearby restaurant. I was filled with much love and gratitude to share many past memories of working together and pictures of friends and our families.
When it was time to go out to lunch my friends were going to follow me in their car and leave from the restaurant to go home early. But the car they came in now would not start. They had borrowed the car from an older relative who had not driven it in a while. We suspected a dead battery was the problem. Normally my husband would take care of this type of problem but he was working out of town for several weeks, so I proceeded to come up with a solution.
First, I know that I am never alone, the inner Prophet of God is always with me spiritually. I was given a nudge by the Prophet to try and jump-start the battery. This seemed like an easy and logical solution… if it worked. As coincidence would have it a few weeks earlier I had car battery problems of my own. I was given the opportunity by the Holy Spirit to brush up on how to jump-start a dead car battery. I had needed a new battery for my own car and was shown by the salesman how to test and jump-start a battery. I did not know at the time how useful this information would be just a few weeks later! In my haste to solve the problem I retrieved an older set of battery cables from my car, forgetting I had ordered a new set for our other vehicle and had put the new set in the garage.
As a sidebar, at this time of year a farmer in our rural area cuts the fields for baling. It is a process which takes several days to weeks depending on the weather. The previous day the farmer had cut the field next to our property and his next step was to bale it into the large round bales of hay. You never know when he is coming to finish this task. We have never formally met only waved at some distance to each other.
Now I attached my older cables to the battery of my friends car and tried to jump-start the car. It did not work and the car engine did not even turn over. I tried several more times, making sure the connection was clean and tight. Nothing happened. My elderly friends were getting worried and wondering what to do next. In that moment I walked back into the garage and began singing HU, an ancient name for God, silently to myself and prayed a silent prayer asking the Prophet, my inner guide for help. In my enthusiasm to fix the situation I found I could not do this on my own. In those few moments after my prayer two things happened. I remembered that I had a set of new jumper cables. I retrieved them and as I walked back out of the garage I looked down the long driveway and saw our farmer neighbor on his tractor puttering slowly down my driveway! God’s timing of answering my prayer was amazing!
After introducing himself and asking if we needed help the farmer said “I knew there was something wrong seeing two hoods of cars up and ladies standing around!” We all laughed as I said a silent “thank you” to the Prophet for hearing and answering my prayer. I was so overwhelmed with gratitude! The new jumper cables started the old car right up. We thanked the farmer for his assistance. He said he was very happy he could be of help and we all went on our ways to continue our day with so much joy and gratitude.
There are a few obvious lessons in this experience. One is that I learned to ask for help, from my heart, no matter how small the challenge. Another was to surrender outcome and leave the “heavy lifting” up to God and His timing. I was reminded that God is constantly demonstrating His Love for us even in the smallest of tasks. Also I was happy my friends and I were able to jump-start our friendship, it was a love filled gift for me. Mostly, I was reminded how much we are all loved by God and His Prophet and how much He wants us to have abundant, joyful, and blessed lives!

God ALWAYS has a Prophet of His choice here on Earth. This is the greatest proof of God’s Love for man – a continuous unbroken chain of divinely chosen and trained Prophets sent to help show us the way home. Mankind is never without a Prophet. We are never alone. As the current Prophet of God, my father Del Hall III, is now in this role and has been authorized to share God’s Light, Love, and truth with the world.
The following preface from our newest book will give you an introductory understanding of God’s historical line of Prophets.
YOU can truly have an ABUNDANT LIFE through a personal and loving relationship with God, the Holy Spirit, and God’s Prophet. This is my primary message to you as the current Prophet of the times. Having a closer relationship with the Divine requires understanding the “Language of the Divine.” God expresses His Love to us, His children, in many different and sometimes very subtle ways. Often His Love goes unrecognized and unaccepted because His language is not well known. The testimonies in this book will show you some of the ways in which God expresses His Love. As you read this book you will begin to learn more of the “Language of the Divine.” The stories span from very subtle Divine guidance to profound examples of experiencing God up close and very personal. After reading this book you will know that your relationship with God has the potential to be more profound, more personal, and more loving than any organized religion on Earth currently teaches.
All the testimonies in this book were written by my students at the Nature Awareness School. It is here that the nature of God, the Holy Spirit, and the nature of Soul are EXPERIENCED under my guidance as a true Prophet of God. The Nature Awareness School is NOT a religion, it is a school. God and His Prophet are NOT disparaging of any religion of love. However, the more a path defines itself with its teachings, dogma, or tenets, the more “walls” it inadvertently creates between the seeker and God. Sometimes it even puts God into a smaller box. God does not fit in any box. The Prophet is for all Souls and is purposely not officially aligned with any path, but shows respect to all.
An introductory understanding of God’s hand-picked and divinely trained Prophet is necessary to fully benefit from reading this book. God ALWAYS has a Prophet of His choice on Earth. Each of God’s Prophets throughout history has a unique mission. One may only have a few students with the sole intent to keep God’s teachings and truth alive. God may use another to change the course of history. God’s Prophets are usually trained by both the current and former Prophets. The Prophet is tested and trained over a very long period of time. The earlier Prophets are physically gone but teach the new Prophet in the inner spiritual worlds. This serves two main purposes: the trainee becomes very adept at spiritual travel and gains wisdom from those in whose shoes he will someday walk. This is vital training because the Prophet is the one who must safely prepare and then take his students into the Heavens and back.
There are many levels of Heaven, also called planes or mansions. Saint Paul once claimed to know a man who went to the third Heaven. Actually it was Paul himself that went, but the pearl is, if there is a third Heaven, it presumes a first and second Heaven also exist. The first Heaven is often referred to as the Astral plane. Even on just that one plane of existence there are over one hundred sub-planes. This Heaven is where most people go after passing unless they receive training while still here in their physical body. Without a guide who is trained properly in the ways of God, a student could misunderstand the intended lesson and become confused as to what is truth. The inner worlds are enormous compared to the physical worlds. They are very real and can be explored safely when guided by God’s Prophet.
Part of my mission is to share more of what is spiritually possible for you as a child of God. Few Souls know or understand that God’s Prophet can safely guide God’s children, while still alive physically, to their Heavenly Home. Taking a child of God into the Heavens is not the job of clergy. Clergy have a responsibility to pass on the teaching of their religion exactly as they were taught, not to add additional concepts or possibilities. If every clergy member taught their own personal belief system no religion could survive for long. Then the beautiful teachings of an earlier Prophet of God would be lost. Clergy can be creative in finding interesting and uplifting ways to share their teachings, but their job is to keep their religion intact. However, God sends His Prophets to build on the teachings of His past Prophets, to share God’s Light and Love, to teach His language, and to guide Souls to their Heavenly Home.
Some of my students share experiences in this book of when they were taken to God’s Temples of learning and even to the twelfth Heaven, the primary Abode of God. It is here, in these higher worlds, where students experience God’s truths at a depth of knowingness beyond what is possible by studying physical scripture alone. After reaching this level of spiritual experience, physical scripture comes alive with truth at new and higher levels. At this point one actually values scripture more than they could have possibly valued it before their own personal experience.
There is ALWAYS MORE when it comes to God’s teachings and truth. No one Prophet can teach ALL of God’s ways. It may be that the audience of a particular time in history cannot absorb more wisdom. It could be due to a Prophet’s limited time to teach and limited time in a physical body on Earth. Ultimately, it is that there is ALWAYS MORE! Each of God’s Prophets bring additional teachings, opportunities, and ways to draw closer to God; building on the work and teachings of former Prophets. That is one reason why Prophets of the past ask God to send another; to comfort, teach, and continue to help God’s children grow into greater abundance. Former Prophets continue to have great love for God’s children and want to see them continue to grow in accepting more of God’s Love. One never needs to stop loving or accepting help from a past Prophet in order to grow with the help of the current Prophet. All true Prophets of God work together and help one another to do God’s work.
Prophet Del Hall III
God constantly showers us with His Love. Often this love comes in the form of guidance, which at times can be very subtle. Learning how to trust those seemingly simple or random thoughts and feelings that come from God is key to living an abundant life.
Several inches of heavy, wet snow had fallen and the day shift employees were working in groups shoveling one another out of the parking lot. It was heart warming to look out and see the cooperation between workmates; a demonstration of love in action. After slowly making my way home, I realized that I would need to shovel the driveway off before parking the car. Also, when I glanced at my front porch I saw that the snow had drifted up against the front door three feet high. My work was cut out for me. I decided to park the car across the street, and then dig my way into my house to use the restroom and have a cup of coffee before tackling the snow. Furthermore, once the car was parked, it became apparent that it was stuck in deep slushy snow.
I removed enough snow so that I could get the front door to the house open, went inside, used the restroom, turned up the thermostat on the furnace, made some coffee and enjoyed it nuzzled in my favorite chair. After awaking from a short nap, it was time to get the car unstuck.
As it was, the tools that I had to get my car unstuck were a broom and my hands, since the small shovel which I kept in my auto for situations such as this got broken an hour before when I lent it to a co worker back in the parking lot. Also, the shed where I kept my full sized snow shovel was also barricaded by the drifted snow. In retrospect, it seems quite ironic that I carried that same little shovel in my vehicle every winter and never needed it for digging my car out until after it broke. I am grateful and certain that every detail was in place to teach me some valuable lessons of living.
I rocked the car, dug the tires out, and rocked some more. After surveying the tires, it was apparent that only one tire was keeping me stuck. It was spinning on ice while the other three made contact with the pavement. I had done all that I could. I calmed myself and gave in. Within an instant the Prophet spoke to my heart. “You have a coffee can of sand in your trunk.” The 13.5 oz of play sand had been gifted to me by a man from my work back a few months earlier, after we had a conversation about adding sand to paint to keep painted porch steps from being slippery when wet. In a gesture of kindness he brought me sand. It had turned too cold to paint so I placed it in my trunk. Oh my goodness, the can of sand had been in there since early fall and every time I used my trunk I would see it and get a strong sense to just leave it alone. I gratefully, joyfully, and carefully placed the sand in front and back of the tire. My heart overflowed with hope that the car was no longer stuck. I heard something and I looked toward my snow drifted driveway and there was a neighbor plowing out a space for me to park in. God’s Love worked through another Soul and blessed me by doing the heavy lifting!
One crucial insight that I received from the experience is that the my Divine connection, the Prophet of God, guided me throughout the situation. As I arrived at a place of calm surrender, as Soul I heard the whisper of Divine Love and protection, which led me away from sorrow, toward victory.
By the Grace of God, I am not alone!

Occasionally I have to travel for work. One Saturday in December I had an out of state job in Maryland, about a three and a half hour drive from my home. The weather report indicated that there was a seventy percent chance of snow in the morning. I set my alarm for 5:45 am. Something woke me up several minutes before the alarm went off so I got ready and headed out a little earlier than expected. A beautiful light snow was falling as I drove out of my neighborhood and into the mountains.
I enjoy singing the HU throughout my day and have been doing so for years. I put a HU CD on in my car to listen to as I left my house. The HU is a beautiful love song to God. It helps me relax, be in the moment, fills me with peace, love and joy, and helps me walk through my day more gracefully. Today it also brought me protection. While HUing that morning, I was very aware of my spiritual teacher’s presence with me on the inner. I have grown to realize that this relationship is the key to everything good in my life.
Snow was starting to stick to the mountain roads and they were becoming a little slippery, I prayed to God for a safe drive. Shortly after I crossed the mountain the temperature rose above freezing causing the snow to change to rain. And though it rained the entire time, I drove for the next two hours up to the DC area without incident. The speed of the traffic around the DC beltway was about fifty-five to sixty miles an hour.
Everything was going smoothly when, “out of the blue” I got a brief thought or image of a car on the highway spinning out of control. Though it seemed to be a random or unusual thought, from years of experience I trusted and knew that I should pay attention. I took my foot off the gas and stepped on the brake to slow down. The people behind me slowed down too.
Shortly after I decreased my speed a lady in a green Jeep Cherokee, two vehicles ahead of mine, lost control of her car. She swerved across three lanes of traffic and smashed into the concrete highway divider. Then her car bounced and spun out of control back across the highway. The man to the left of me locked up his brakes and fishtailed toward her. He just missed hitting her by inches. Eventually her car stopped sideways in the middle of the road. Had I not slowed down I would have hit her broadside. We were on a curve in the road and many cars behind us were still approaching. Some of the drivers had probably seen the brake lights or what had just happened and slowed down, though there were others coming around the bend who were caught off guard. I had a strong feeling to keep moving because this was not a safe place to be. I drove past the lady in the car and saw that her airbag had deployed. She looked like she was shaken but seemed okay. I pulled over ahead of the accident and out of danger and called 911.
Through this experience I know that God’s Love and Grace had once again blessed my life. The Hand of God and the protection of the HU saved me from a major car accident. I was given a subtle warning. If I had not trusted that inner guidance and immediately followed that nudge to slow down, I could have crashed into her vehicle. If I had not been woken up a few minutes earlier than my alarm was set for, I could have been in this accident or have been stuck behind it for hours and would not have made it to my job on time. Perhaps the biggest gift of all was, because God had put me in that particular spot on that particular day, several of the cars behind me may have also avoided being in a very serious accident themselves.

God can literally reach into the physical and change the course of events to keep us safe if it is not our time to go. I wonder how many times this happens and just gets considered good luck? God certainly does not need the credit. We are the ones who benefit when our blessings are recognized.
Traveling home from a winter class at the Nature Awareness School it had begun to snow when I got to the mountains of West Virginia. The highways were clear of snow but once I took the exit to go to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the roads began to get covered and slick. There was a little red car in front of me. I was able to keep up for awhile but it was going faster than I felt was safe, so I let it gain distance until it disappeared out ahead. I was trying to be cautious and travel slower, below the speed limit.
When cresting a hill and starting down the other side I saw a tractor-trailer coming from the opposite direction. Wanting to slow down more, I pulled the gear shifter from Drive down into Third gear. Wrong thing to do! My car started to slide and then in a mild panic I over compensated which caused more sliding. The lights of the tractor-trailer were getting closer and closer! I saw a yard and some cars to my right. All I could think of was “body shop.” Now the back end of the car began to slide around toward the front of the car – “this is not good!” Now, as I am slowly spinning around and sliding towards the tractor-trailer my thought was “this is going to hurt,” so I closed my eyes and yelled out to God. It was loud and clear.
The truck came to a complete stop and my car had finally stopped moving. I did not come close to the tractor-trailer or slam into the hillside. God had his hand on my car, that is the only way it can be explained. The car stopped so gently, just before a drain inlet. There was no jarring, crunching, or damage of any kind. Once I opened my eyes and began breathing again, I knew and immediately thanked God. The tractor-trailer started up the hill again and once it had passed, all I had to do was back up a little and get over to the right side of the road. Thank you God for always being with and protecting me.

Many have experienced some form of Divine Intervention. A moment where God says, “not yet” and steps in to help us out of a jam. It might be easy for others to try and talk you out of it, but for those that have experienced it – you know what you know.
“Testimonies of God’s Love” has many incredible stories of people recognizing the Hand of God in their life.
When I was in college, friends and I went swimming in the Yuba River in California. We were diving off a train trestle and swimming to a sandbar about half way across the river. I was already tired when I dove in too deep. By the time I came up, the current had carried me much farther than I wanted. If I missed the sandbar, the far side was a long way off and the near side was too steep to climb out.
I swam with all I had. I realized I was not going to make it, I was exhausted.
As the current swept me past the sandbar, I saw a hand reach out for me. I grabbed it and was pulled to shore. I could barely crawl out of the water. Not long after, I looked up and saw a small willow bush, with a branch trailing in the water where I had seen the hand. I knew that God had saved my life.

To be physically alive is not the same thing as having life. It is when we awaken in consciousness to our Divinity that we can truly have an abundant life. It is our connection and loving relationship with the Divine that fuels this growth. -Enjoy
The study of your dreams can help awaken you to your Divinity. Your next two opportunities are within reach.
I recently recalled a story my mother told me when I was younger. She said that while she was seven months pregnant with me she tripped and began to fall down a steep flight of stairs. She told me that she was sure she would have fallen on her stomach. As she was falling she felt an invisible hand catch her and put her back on her feet.
She did not know whose hand it was, but was sure of her experience and how it saved her from injury and saved my life. She expressed that the impact of how she was falling would likely have killed me.
Five years later, I was on a fishing trip with my father. My younger brother and I were playing on a pier as he fished across the pond. I reached out to grab something in the water and fell in. I was only five and did not know how to swim. I remember falling into the water and sinking. As I sunk, I looked up and could see the light breaking through the top of the water. I began to wave my arms to swim to the top and just as I did this, an unusual burst of energy propelled me to the top. I broke through the water so fast that I was able to grab the pier and pull myself up very easily.
So, here I am forty-one years later reflecting on those experiences over morning coffee. As I contemplate, what stands out to me is that I was touched by the “Hand of God,” and it saved my physical life very literally back then. However, I did not have “life” in the truest sense until I began to learn how to have a relationship with the Divine. This began in 2005.
I learned, and am still learning, how to do that from my teacher Del at the Nature Awareness School. He has opened my spiritual eyes and given me the fundamentals to live an abundant life. Some might ask “why was I saved?” I know that it was because before I was even born, I had a dream in my heart to “Manifest my Divine Nature.” I wanted to find my teacher, and I did.

Do you have a dream in your heart to live an abundant life? “Testimonies of God’s Love” will help you on your way.
Many times we are overly attached to a particular outcome or way of doing something without even knowing it. The more attached we are the more we tie God’s Hands in delivering His blessings. When we truly let go the situation can be born anew.
I am blessed to be the mom of three amazing, and beautiful girls. Eleven years ago, this journey of motherhood began. I loved being pregnant with my first child. Excitement, anticipation, worry, and joy all coexisting while we awaited her arrival. Being holistically minded, it was my deep desire to have a natural childbirth. My loving husband and I prepared as much as we possibly could, reading a plethora of books, and taking every birthing class offered in our area.
The big day was finally approaching. On June 7th, at 2:15 PM my water broke, and with it some complications arose. I was admitted to the hospital before labor truly began. A natural birth was still on the table, but as time ticked on, the outlook was looking less likely. I relied on the HU, one of my best spiritual tools to keep me calm. I felt peace and knew all would be fine. Five hundred miles away my sister-in-law was also waiting with anticipation. She kept checking in to see how labor was progressing. We went through the entire next day, and still no baby.
Exhausted at this point I gave in and they administered drugs to speed up labor. I finally yielded and accepted an epidural for the intense pain that the labor brings on. On the evening of June 8th true labor was finally setting in. My sister-in-law went to bed that evening with us in her thoughts. She had a dream, and in that dream she saw a brilliant blue light gently push the baby from my womb. Meanwhile back at the hospital, at the exact same moment, I looked at my husband and said, “I need help, I need help, and I truly surrender!”
I felt a sudden and noticeable warmth in my womb and instantly had a rush of stamina. On June 9th at 2:15 AM, exactly thirty-six hours to the minute of my water breaking, we gazed eyes upon our sweet baby girl. It was the Light of God that touched my baby and helped her come into this world. Even though earlier in the day I sang HU, and I felt peace, I still had an attachment to the way I wanted things to work out. I was not even aware of my attachments until I verbally surrendered the outcome. My sister-in-law’s dream confirmed what I was feeling in those same moments. In my hour of need God heard my cry and gave me one of the greatest joys of my life; my daughter.

Another benefit to learning the “Language of the Divine” is being able to hear when God is trying to warn us of danger. In the following story the author received multiple insights that quite possibly saved her life. They came in the form of what some would consider “coincidences.” The warnings were more than coincidence.
I was driving to work on a Sunday and flipping through the radio stations when I heard a voice that I recognized. It was a friend of mine on NPR talking about his work. So I listened to it until I got to work.
When I left work the radio station was still on the same channel. I typically do not listen to this station but found myself listening to “Car Talk” with Click and Clack. A woman called in and asked about her steering wheel shaking, as I listened, I recognized that my own steering wheel had been shaking for a few weeks. I was curious to hear the problem and they told her she had a tire problem and she needed to get it fixed immediately because if it fell off or broke on the highway it could be the end of her. Right as they said this, my check engine light came on, another awake dream for me to pay attention.
The next day I listened to a spiritual seminar where the speaker mentioned listening to Click and Clack the day before. I was very excited to hear this about the show I “randomly” was listening to the day before! So needless to say after all these awake dreams, I was paying attention. I took my car in the next day and it came back with a huge amount of problems with an estimate of around eight thousand dollars to fix. One of the problems was with my axles; they were dried out and ready to separate at any moment, making driving very dangerous. With the very high estimated cost of the repairs it made more sense to just by a newer used car.
In the morning I sang HU and contemplated as to how dangerous the car was and could I drive it for a little while longer? I did not want to rush into buying another car. I prayed to God and opened a spiritual book “at random” and it said “We serve God and life out of gratitude. Why? For the blessings we have received. What is the greatest blessing? The gift of life itself. It’s living. It’s getting more experience in life, learning more about who and what you are.” I definitely took this as another awake dream that my car is dangerous and could potentially cost me my life. The hand of God was guiding me and protecting me throughout this experience. I am so grateful for the teachings that have taught me how to recognize the hand of God in my daily life.

There is no limit to the ways God can bestow His Love and protection on those in need. The following is an amazing example of this.
Years ago, as a young adult Boy Scout leader, I was driving a vanload of boys at the start of a camping trip. Sometime after dark, we pulled up to the stop sign on a country road. In the distance I could see the single headlight of an oncoming motorcycle. I believed the motorcycle was still quite far away and moving rather slowly, but my observation turned out to be wrong. As I turned onto the main road, I suddenly realized the motorcycle was much closer than I had believed.
As I floored the van’s gas pedal, the boys in the back of the van yelled in fright as the bike moved in very close. Then in wonder and amazement, they described that they saw a great hand, made of light, reach out and keep the bike from hitting the back of the van. The Hand of God intervened to keep several lives safe that night.
Since that time, I have come to find and welcome the Divine presence in all areas of my life. As I have become more aware of God, I have experienced more love, help, healing, peace, rest, suggestions for creating a more abundant life, and so much more. I hope you will come to welcome God into your life and to see the wonderful changes that are possible.
