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.
The soul remains, in consequence [in this contemplation], as though ignorant of all things since it only knows God without knowing how it knows him.
St. John of the Cross
Lost in the mystery of God’s love, the contemplative soul rests in God, without analysis and judgment, and is accessible to God’s gifts. As you pray today, allow yourself to be swept up into the mystery of God’s love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
