Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
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.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
Make my soul…Your cherished dwelling place, Your home of rest. Let me never leave You there alone, but keep me there all absorbed in You, in living faith, adoring You.
Bl. Elizabeth of the Trinity
As you pray today, use Psalm 62 for your reflection, especially verses 6-9: “My soul, be at rest in God alone, from whom comes my hope. God alone is my rock and my salvation…”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
