Choose a mantra or ''prayer word'' such as ''God,'' ''love,'' ''Spirit,'' or ''Jesus'' to quiet the mind when distracting thoughts intrude.
Close your eyes and start reciting the mantra aloud at first, so you can listen to yourself speaking or chanting the mantra.
After a few minutes, begin to recite more quietly, whispering and finally only moving your lips to form the mantra without producing an audible sound.
Recite the mantra in your mind, repeating it mentally without moving your lips.
We should look for no support except in Jesus. He alone is immutable. What joy to think that He can never change.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese placed all her trust in Jesus who was her king and her God - the only One whom she could trust without reservation. She knew Jesus was always trustworthy and supportive. Pray to Jesus today with great joy and gratitude.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
