Look around you. Take the time to consider exactly where you are at this moment. Breathe deeply and meditate on the fact that God knows you, right now, wherever you are. God is with you at this moment and sees you and knows the desires of your heart.
Take a deep breath and allow God's desires to fill your heart.
Exhale, and let go of your worries and those things to which you have been clinging and which may have gotten in the way of your relationship with God today. Take two more deep breaths.
But these individuals do not find delight in the imagination wandering back and forth; rather, they are troubled about it on account of the disturbance it brings to that gratifying peace.
St. John of the Cross

Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
