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.
I'm literally just like the parrots that are taught to speak; they know no more than what they hear or are shown, and they often repeat it. If the Lord wants me to say something new, His Majesty will provide.
St. Teresa of Avila
Pray today for the Holy Spirit to teach you what to say and how to act, making no decisions without attentiveness to the Spirit’s guidance.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
