How One Woman’s Religious Indoctrination Drove Her to Conscious Awakening and Enlightenment


Alexis speaks with Cheryl Abram, the author of “Firing God” about how growing up a devout Christian eventually brought her to her knees!

Cheryl Abram grew up a happy well adjusted child on her grandfather's farm in Louisiana.

With a devout Christian upbringing. Cheryl did everything she was told in order to obtain salvation and eternal life. As she says, “I followed the recipe.” And yet the more she did, the more she found herself sinking into a bottomless pit of failure and despair.

It wasn't until many years later and a string of failures, all of which she thought to be of her own doing, that she was desperate to get closer to God, in order to understand what she was doing wrong. But instead of the comfort she had been so longing for, she found herself in a confrontation with God – and in that instant she decided to give him the boot – she in essence fired God!

In this moment of brutal honesty, she told God, “I don't love you. I've never loved you…”

But what were the triggers that brought Abram to this point? This is what's discussed in great detail in our interview

She had lost everything. What did she have to lose by using what she says was the only thing left in her arsenal – honesty!

But the story doesn't end there. In fact, in that moment of confession, she felt as if a two ton weight had been instantly lifted. What would then ensue was a conscious awakening – a true moment of enlightenment that she remembers so distinctly. A moment in which a connection with absolute truth was revealed.

“[During this experience] I felt like I was made of eternity,” she said.

Clarity came quickly as if receiving an instant telepathic download. Clearly, she was glimpsing something few ever get to experience.

But when I asked Cheryl if this communication – this download was from “God,” she struggled to answer. “I don't know…it seemed more like a peer-to-peer communication.”

Either way, Cheryl discovered something that couldn't possibly be learned in the confines of conventional religious teaching.

In her book she says, “Discovery did not involve learning something new, discovery involved unlearning what I thought I knew.”

For her, the journey of awakening continues to this day!
