Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
The dark night with its aridities and voids is the means to the knowledge of God and self.
St. John of the Cross
Only when we are emptied of all that is not of God, can we be filled with God’s Spirit who transforms us into our truest self, drawing us closer to our Beloved. In your prayer today ask for your empty spaces to be filled by God alone.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
