Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
I know from experience that the only happiness on earth consists in being hidden and in absolute ignorance of created things.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese took the words of Jesus seriously, i.e. “Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God.” Pray today that you, too, will “see” God because you are choosing daily to decrease while your loving Lord increases.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
