Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
..just as you did it to one of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.
“As for what concerns our relations with our fellow men, the anguish in our neighbor’s soul must break all precept.” (St. Teresa Benedicta) Spend some time this week offering to help at a soup kitchen, a shelter for abused women, or a senior citizen in need of companionship. See Christ in those whom you serve.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
