Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
In the midst of these aridities and straits, God frequently communicates to the soul, when it least expects, spiritual sweetness, a very pure love, and spiritual knowledge that is sometimes most delicate.
St. John of the Cross
Pray today to be open to the gifts of “spiritual sweetness, and a very pure love,” that God communicates to you even in the midst of your trials or difficulties in prayer.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
