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 person likes to remain alone in loving awareness of God, without particular considerations in interior peace and quiet and repose.
St. John of the Cross
As the soul enters deeply into contemplative prayer, the soul is led to rest in God’s embrace. As you pray today, ask for the grace to “remain alone in loving awareness of God,” in “interior peace, quiet and repose.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
