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.
For in order to know ourselves, it helps a great deal to speak with someone who already knows the world for what it is.
St. Teresa of Avila
Praising spiritual mentors who are grounded and wise, Teresa invites us to seek this accompaniment if we are to “know ourselves.” Pray today for an openness to seek the guidance of others, as you deepen your self-awareness on this spiritual journey
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
