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.
This action of love is so powerful that the soul dissolves with desire.
St. Teresa of Avila
Only those who are overtaken by the love of God, such as Teresa, can know that, “the soul dissolves with desire.” As you pray today, let yourself be totally embraced by God’s love and ask that your soul, too, will be literally dissolved by desire for the One who has first loved us.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
