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.
You must note that hardly any of the light coming from the King's royal chamber reaches these first dwelling places. Even though they are not dark, as when the soul is in sin, they nevertheless are in some way darkened so that the soul cannot see the light.
St. Teresa of Avila
Pray today for contentment with whatever God gives you in prayer, whether you are a beginner or experienced.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
