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.
“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.
