Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
...a person obtains in this night these four benefits: the delight of peace; a habitual remembrance of God, and solicitude concerning him; cleanness and purity of soul; and the practice of virtue.
St. John of the Cross
“Night” brings the soul gifts that prepare the soul for eternal union with the Beloved. Pray today for acceptance of the “night” and with gratitude for the gift of relationship with the Beloved.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
