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.
Just as the soul, according to St. Paul, will know then as she is known by God (1 Cor. 13:12), so she will also love God as she is loved by him.
St. John of the Cross
Wrapped in God’s love, the soul reflects God’s ways of knowing and loving in all that she does. Pray today to be the sign of God’s love in all that you do.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
