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.
The dark night with its aridities and voids is the means to the knowledge of God and self.
St. John of the Cross
For John, the dark night is a special opportunity to know oneself and God more intimately since it draws us to depend totally on God as we stumble in the darkness. Pray today that you can let go of control and allow God to lead you daily
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
