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.
And in that awakening, which is as though one were to awaken and breathe, the soul feels a strange delight in the breathing of the Holy Spirit of God, in which it is sovereignly glorified and taken with love.
St. John of the Cross
Be awakened in your prayer today! Breathe in the Holy Spirit of God, who alone glorifies the soul and transforms it with love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
