Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
This dark night is an inflow of God into the soul that purges it of its habitual ignorance and imperfections, natural and spiritual, and which contemplatives call infused contemplation or mystical theology.
St. John of the Cross
As you are called deeper into the “dark night,” pray today to be receptive to the “inflow of God” into your soul, that will transform and purify you.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
