Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
“To achieve interior silence, practice exterior silence.”
– Blessed John of Saint Samson
When was the last time I was alone without any sounds in the room for ten minutes or longer? On a scale of 0 (cannot tolerate) to 10 (very content) what is my comfort level with five minutes of complete silence?
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
