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.
Some spiritual persons call this contemplation knowing by unknowing. For this knowledge (of God)... is produced in the possible or passive intellect.
St. John of the Cross
The heart of prayer for a person called to this depth of contemplative prayer is accessibility or receptivity – opening yourself to God’s transforming work within you. Ask for the gift of this openness in your prayer today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
