Knowing You are God – Part 1

“Be Still, and Know That I Am God”

Psalm 46:10

What is really meant by this statement? I’ve been sitting with it a lot recently — and because I’ve been sitting with it, lots of you have been asking me about it. “How do I accept that I am God, how do I enter the God State?”

I think it is easier for us to understand what it means to be God on a conceptual level but we often don’t feel it on a bodily level. We know that we are God consciousness, expressing themselves as a human, and that the whole vast world is this consciousness (i.e. You) pushed out. We know this intellectually, we but often struggle to step into it because we are still seeing some degree of separation between who we are on the human level and who we are as God. When we see it in this dualistic way, we then condemn the human self, because we see our human self as flawed and “less than” the God self. We make the God within us something that we need to attain, because then that will make us shed our human flaws and we will then be able to manifest whatever we want because we will be operating as God and not the limited human that we are. Right?  Sorry, it doesn’t work that way!

If you approach “I am God” as a concept and try to put it on like a role, if you try to step into the role of God so that your desires can manifest and that you can finally control the world around you, then you will still feel disconnected from your higher self. It won’t feel like who you really are because you’re trying to ACT like God, but from the Ego, the human perspective. God is not a role! Your human self is the role that the divine God within you is playing. There is no “God state” to occupy because you are already God. You are God experiencing and cycling through many states, through many experiences and identities. 

The Ego/Human approach to being God often looks like this: “I am God so I can do whatever I want. The whole world will bend to my will. Everybody else is nothing but a puppet in my world. The other person that I crave has no choice but to obsess over me and think about me because that’s what I decided.”

Meanwhile, your God self sits there in peace and solitude knowing that the whole world doesn’t have to bend to your will when it is already you who created it, and it is you who animates it and makes it so. Your God self knows it is a paradox to try and control what is already you, animated in different forms. Because your God self, strong and unwavering, doesn’t delight in false notions of power and control. 

Connecting with God is not about roleplaying them, but going within, being still, and allowing God to actually move through you. Don’t be surprised if your desires change because you are no longer creating them from an ego perspective but channeling them directly from yourself as God.  When I sit and know that I am God, I know that She (what I choose to call her) is me but also bigger than me. I can experience her animate my body when I get out of my head and let her do so. I can let her take the wheel when I’m afraid. Sometimes, even though I know she is there, I will block her out and not let her messages come through — of course she waits patiently and without judgement, because she is the embodiment of pure love and therefore does not impose conditions. 

Knowing you are God is not denying the human part of yourself in order to operate from a “God State”. You can only ever experience God through your human body, because you are IN it, at least for now. When you leave this body behind you will go back to formlessness, to pure God consciousness again, but for now you are like a tendril that is unfurling on its own but still connected to the source no matter how far it grows. God needs you to be in your body so that you can express yourself in human form. God needs you to be a perfectly flawed human so that you can experience consciousness from this perspective. There are no mistakes — your God self does not make any!

We are often very quick to abandon our God self when things in the physical reflect our inner world and then we don’t like what we see. We get irritated and close ourselves off from the source, instead of relaxing, feeling into where our feelings are coming from (and therefore understanding how we create the reality that we do) and aligning with our desires instead. Our God self gives us desires in abundance and without judgement and so often we don’t pursue them or we think of all of the illusory reasons why it can’t be so.

You cannot sit and ask YOU, the human you, “how do I handle this like God?” And then try to imitate what you think God would do. The moment you brought conceptual thought into it you already detached and went into the human thinking mind. You can’t conceptualise it with your mind. Go within and let God guide the human shell, let God take over. Don’t overthink or over-complicate. Get out of God’s way. God doesn’t communicate to you with words the way that we humans communicate with each other. God doesn’t communicate through mind chatter either. Their language goes much deeper. They communicate with feelings, intuition, and desire. Your God self fears nothing because they give you desires without any question as to whether you can have them or not – only our human self questions this.

To accept we are God, we have to understand that this is not a role we play in order to get what we want, it is the source of who we really are. It goes so much deeper than that. 

In my next post (part 2), I will go further into how we can apply this practically, connect to yourself as God, and let this move through you. For now, I want you to drop your concept of God, go within, and feel the divine within you already.

    Hi Kriston

    Thank you for this wonderfully helpful and resonant article. This is something I have been struggling with.
    A lot. I have posted about this here previously and Aanschal was kind enough to try to help me with it and I am
    grateful and thankful to her. I am grateful to you too because I feel that when I know that I am completely
    at a true understanding that I am not being conceited, delusional and largeing myself up when I say ‘I am God’
    and in no way whatsoever, insulting God, then the knot that I feel is a huge uncomfortable blockage in my solar plexus will completely dissolve and release. Then I will ‘feel’ as one with God, Prime Creator God of Creation, my Father, who, although I am God, is greater than I. I am so happy to have manifested this particular article
    of yours Kriston … and with perfect timing. ‘I am’!

    With many thanks xx
    xx also to Aanchal.

    You’ve quoted the psalm incorrectly.

    Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the Earth.”

  • Eric Richey

    Kriston, I am so grateful you wrote this post.

    The last few years I have researched several different religions and New Thought philosophers, and the more people I find speaking of Neville Goddard’s teachings, and the like…. I find they are all saying the same thing, in different words.

    Truthfully, when I discovered “conscious manifestation” and hearing That I AM God….

    I forced myself to become as calm, as happy as possible so I can manifest all the lovely experiences I desire for myself and everyone involved right?

    Only to have an event spring up in my face that appears contradictory to my desires….

    And I just lose it. (I express my anger, frustration, etc.)

    This process hasn’t been the most enjoyable for me, and possibly for many others.

    I fell into the Ego Trap as you described, once believing everyone is simply a puppet to my imaginings and such. I finally realized how dark and sinister I had become.

    Still, hearing that I am responsible for everything that has happened to me, being the one true Power over my life, (God is not out there but within.) It has been a process.

    Thank you for writing this, I look forward to Part II.

    Sincerely, Eric R.

    Since I started discovering this mind stuff, I have had a lot of unanswered questions. None more than this “God concept”. For the past two years I have been wondering how I can enter this God state. How I can “shed” my human self. How i should get rid of all desire and find my “God self” because apparently that is the only way i can be happy. It has made me feel inadequate, depressed and filthy. I have never been more ashamed to be a human being. Plus I have always felt uncomfortable telling people what to do and now I also get to hypnotize/manipulate everyone once I realize I am God. The burden and responsibility that comes with finding this God self has caused a lot of fear and resistance on my part. But now this post has really opened my eyes. I just want to enjoy been human, including all the ‘mishaps’ that comes with it. I have re-read your article numerous times over the past few hours. I could write a whole page on just how moved i am by it. I cant wait to read part 2

    • Monica

      Ok, I went through your previous blogs because I have seen a few complaints and I do have to admit there are some contradictions. In other articles you talked about already having an SP in mind and knowing it’s a done deal. And now I’m just confused because you are talking about manipulating people with this “I am God” concept. If your opinion has changed overtime, I think you should say so.

  • Cindy Alvarado

    My life has changed since the moment I came across this blog, and had a session with you! Reading this article made was the push I needed to say goodbye to the old [wo]man and identify fully with my God self. Can’t wait for part two!

  • Soma

    I find this article contradictory to the previous articles and success stories relating to SPs. So we are now ego driven and being manipulative in wanting to get an SP and not using our God power in the correct ethical way? According to the Everyone is You Pushed articles you have published… No body exists outside of us as they just part of our consciousness so how we are then treating people as puppets if they are not separate beings?

      • Lucy

        Yes me too. I find it very contradictory in relation to previous articles and I am now doubting my desires and whether they are true or not. I’m sure this wasn’t the intention with this article but I have lost some faith in what I was doing. It’s seems Jen and Kriston have very different perspectives and it would be helpful if they were both on the same page. Jen on one hand is saying you can have exactly what you want ego or not and Kriston is basically saying unless your desires are channelled through god is not a true desire even though you have no way of knowing. I understand the intention behind this article but all it has done is put a whole lot of fear and anxiety into the mix and I’ve left the group

    • Kriston

      My love, there is no correct ethical way. Nobody exists outside of our AWARENESS, but this does not mean that they do not exist at all. I will clarify in the next article. <3

  • oceanfloorboards

    I don’t think you should be doubting your desires. Neville never said this. He said every desire comes from god and god is your own wonderful human imagination. Go with what Jen says because it just genuinely makes a lot more sense. every single desire is valid, i know this by testing it. To God there is no “true” desires and “fake desires”, if your still contemplating what your “true” desires are, then you are not thinking from god, you are looking at a god outside of you. The fact that you create every single detail of your world proves that every single desire is valid.

    • Lucy

      I’ve pondered this today and came to the same conclusion. Either all of my desires are from god or none of them are. I do however think if Kriston’s ideology has changed she does need to consider her audience and the general theme of the website and the fb group as it’s very confusing when even Neville himself did question whether his desires were god given or not

      • Kriston

        In the next article I am going to go deeper and clarify some of your questions, as this is not what I meant. 🙂 <3

    • Kriston

      Definitely never doubt your desires, that is not the message of this article. There are no true or fake desires, no desire is less valid than the other, because they all lead us to where we need to be. There is a lesson in everything that we want. I will clarify in the second part of this article to clear up the confusion. 🙂 <3

  • El

    Many of you are misinterpreting her words. She and jennifer actually have the same view. She is not saying that you cant or should not “influence” others. She is saying that you need to view this dynamic from a different perspective, from the perspective that it is really not a dynamic at all. Yes, technically what you are doing is changing people, but it only seems that way when you look at it from the view if the 3d world or the ego. In reality you arent changing anyone separate from you because no one really is separate from you. When you understand that you are literally everyone else you lose the feeling that you need to control them because you know they naturally move with your flow. It’s the same thing as “manipulating others” just from the perspective of your higher self instead of ego. And she’s saying this because things happen faster and with less struggle if you take the former perspective. If you’re still confused on the matter I’d suggest listening to the second podcast: everyone is you pushed out.

  • Rosie

    I appreciate this post so much, thank you Kriston. It really helps me feel it when you describe us as God playing the role of us, as opposed to us being some slightly separate identity from our higher self.

    On a separate note, I am extremely interested in some of the articles I have read on here so far about transcending time, changing people’s entire appearances and other things, and would love to read/hear more on these subjects.
