When performing these holy hour meditations, try to be in absolute silence, it is to connect with God from your heart and from that wonderful space with candles, incense, aromas, readings and his word that you have decided to condition.
Remember that every time Jesus left to talk with his father, he remained silent and prayed, so let us follow his example and allow our hearts to be the ones to express themselves and make “noise”.
Stay calm, submit your will to God, listen to your heart beat, quiet your thoughts for a moment, forget external noises and simply let yourself go.
Be attentive to what is truly important in that moment: God and you, that special relationship, that intimate moment, being grateful.
Take a deep breath, inhale, exhale, calmly, without rush, without pressure, forget all your problems, forget everything that agitates your heart, forget everything that can disturb you, relax and pay special attention to everything you feel in that moment. moment.
Feel how the breeze caresses your face, feel how your body relaxes, feel every inch of your being, each one of your organs how they work perfectly.
Pay attention to your breathing, to how the air flows in a calm, slow way and generates more and more well-being, calm, absolute peace, a peace, so great, that you have never felt before.
Allow yourself to release all possible tension, all bad thoughts and if you feel like laughing, crying or screaming, do it, let off steam in the way you need it, do everything you need, to achieve that state of more.
Also, you can complement this process with the readings for holy time. Prayer and these readings become your direct connection with God the Father.
Good disposition is the result of feeling comfortable both with ourselves and with what we do. Find your comfort, stand up, kneel, sit or lie down, as you feel better, God will not judge you, no one will judge you, so seek your full relaxation.
God wants to hear from our lips that he and only he can transform us from within, only he can fill us with joy, only he can make us feel whole and loved.
