Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
Learn to be empty of all things--interiorly and exteriorly--and you will behold that I am God.
St. John of the Cross
Let go of all that is not of God. Be empty and open “and you will behold that I am God.” As you pray today, ask for this grace of detachment leading you more deeply to the awareness of God’s presence.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
