Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using these words of praise, pray slowly:
My God, I love you with all my heart, I praise and thank you...
Repeat several times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
Just be with God.
...it is good, indeed very good, to try to enter first into the room where self-knowledge is dealt with rather than fly off to other rooms.
St. Teresa of Avila
Because self-knowledge is key to transformation in Christ, Teresa invites us to stay in that room until we deal with it before moving on. Pray today that you remain open to the truth of yourself before God.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
