Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
And even if I could gain, I wouldn't want any good save that acquired through Him from whom all blessings come to us. May He be always praised, amen.
St. Teresa of Avila
Teresa praised God for all that she had received, knowing that God was the only source of all her blessings. Pray today with that same trust in the God who is the sole source of your blessings.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
