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.
You will be consoled according to the greatness of your sorrow and affliction; the greater the suffering, the greater will be the reward.
St Mary Magdalen de'Pazzi
Trust that God is aware of and present to you in your suffering. Never hesitate to ask God for what you need, trusting in God’s promise to be with us always.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
