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 seek little happenings, nothings, to give pleasure to my Jesus: for example, a smile, a kind word, when I would rather be silent or show no interest.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Even the least gesture toward another motivated by love, is pleasing to Jesus. Pray today that even at those times when you would prefer not to engage with another, you would reach out because of love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
