Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.

The first sign for seeing whether or not you have humility is that you do not think you deserve these favors and spiritual delights from the Lord or that you will receive them in your lifetime.
St. Teresa of Avila
Entitlement is the opposite of humility. Pray today for the humility to acknowledge that all of your “favors and spiritual delights” are a pure gift from God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
