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.
When He joins the soul to Himself, it doesn't understand anything; for all the faculties are lost.
St. Teresa of Avila
Literally lost in God, the soul who is drawn to deep union with God, “doesn’t understand anything.” In your prayer today, lose yourself in God and let go of the inner clutter of thoughts and words, allowing God to fill the void with unconditional love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
