Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
For the Christian, the 'stranger' does not exist, only the 'neighbor': he who is directly before us and most in need of us.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)
For followers of God in Christ, there are no 'strangers' only neighbors. Be present to those in your midst who are in need...love your neighbor as yourself!
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
