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.
“For as the love of neighbor increases so does the love of God, and as the love of God increases so does the love of neighbor.”
John of the Cross (Acs. 3.23.1)
Love of God and love of neighbor are not two separate commandments; they are one. Ask God to teach you how to grow in love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
