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.
“I knew Jesus was there, sleeping in my boat, but the night was so black it was impossible to see Him.”
Therese of Lisieux (SS109)
Although the sheer darkness can sometimes hide the presence of God we can be peaceful and aware that God is with us. Become like a little child and place your trust in God who has promised never to abandon us.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
