Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
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.
