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 reciprocal love is thus actually formed between God and the soul, like the marriage union...in which the goods of both are possessed by both together.
St. John of the Cross
John describes the union of a soul in love with God, as a marriage bond, in which both the lover and the beloved are one. As you pray today, ask God to gift you with that quality of love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
