Choose a mantra or ''prayer word'' such as ''God,'' ''love,'' ''Spirit,'' or ''Jesus'' to quiet the mind when distracting thoughts intrude.
Close your eyes and start reciting the mantra aloud at first, so you can listen to yourself speaking or chanting the mantra.
After a few minutes, begin to recite more quietly, whispering and finally only moving your lips to form the mantra without producing an audible sound.
Recite the mantra in your mind, repeating it mentally without moving your lips.
Jesus said...'Amen I say to you no prophet is accepted in his own native place.'"
“They who want to win the world for Christ must have the courage to come into conflict with it.” Titus Brandsma preached the gospel by his word and example, without attention to the consequences. Reach out to someone this week who longs for/needs to hear the good news.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
