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.
Leave the soul in God's hands; let Him do whatever He wants with it, with the greatest disinterest about your own benefit as is possible and the greatest resignation to the will of God.
St. Teresa of Avila
Pray today as Jesus did when he suffered the agony in the garden: “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet, not my will but your will be done!”(Matt. 26:39)
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
