Praying Pause – Awakening

This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.—Psalm 118:24 

The moment we wake up and become conscious of the world, our hearts are still open to God and Love. If we jump into our day without dedicating this pivotal moment to God and Love, something life-giving will be lost.

Especially during this time and always, we need to learn to live above the circumstances of our lives because they are constantly changing. We have to be grounded in something Higher than ourselves! 

∼ Become aware of yourself… of your breathing and your body… Feel your body…

∼ How are you feeling right now…?

∼ Smile and say inwardly or aloud, “This is the day the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it,” or any other prayer that is meaningful to you…

∼ Breathe deeply into the coming day, and know that life can only be lived one moment at a time…

~Awaken to the mystery of God and Love each moment of your day…

~You are alive… now become fully alive to this day and this moment…

Love to you all my friends! My prayer for us is that we might become fully alive to the mystery of life and the Higher Power that guides us all…

This is the day!!!🤗

Praying Pause – Who do You want to be?

Listen to your life.
See it for the fathomless mystery it is.
In the boredom and pain of it
no less than in the excitement and gladness:
touch, taste, smell your way
to the holy and hidden heart of it
because in the last analysis
all moments are key moments,
and life itself is grace.
—Frederick Buechner

~ Breathe deeply…feel the air coming into your body… and going out of your body …

~ Breathe deeply into this moment … the only moment you are truly alive … the past is gone … the future not here yet… breathe…

~ Breathe into the pain and joy of your life… and into the excitement and boredom…

~ Breathe into your future self and ask yourself who you want to be at the end of this challenging time…

~ Breathe into the truth that how we choose to live during this global challenge is going to mold us into who we will be for the rest of our lives… 

~ Who do you want to be…?

Praying Pause – Solitude & Silence

It is in deep solitude and silence that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brother and sister.—Thomas Merton (1915-1968)

~ Allow your breathing to guide you into this peaceful moment… 

~ During this challenging time and always we are asked to live our ordinary lives in extraordinary ways with gentleness and humility…

~ How can you live this day in an extraordinary way…? 

~ How can you love your loved ones with gentleness today…? 

~ How can you love yourself with gentleness today..? 

~ Please take a moment and breathe…

~ How…?

Smiling Pause

Smiling Pause 

Peace begins with a smile. —Mother Teresa

~Breathing deeply, smile…😃

~Looking in the mirror, smile …🤓

~Working on the computer, smile…😍

~Reading this Facebook post, smile…😛

Smiling and smiles create happiness. When we smile, we relax hundreds of muscles in our face. Even if we fake a smile, it starts a biochemical reaction and our brain releases happiness-generating chemicals into our system.

Smile dear friends, smile… I smiled a lot, writing this post 😊

Praying Pause – Be Kind

Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.—Henry James (1843-1916)

~ Be kind to yourself and relax into the moment… 

~ Breathing deeply, relax your jaw, your shoulders and your stomach… Breathing deeply will calm your body and mind…

~ Be kind to yourself today and do something that will bring you joy… What will bring you joy today? 

~ Be kind to someone you love and bring them joy today…

I always feel joy posting these posts! And I feel joyful when I read your comments 🙏🏻

Be well and have a safe day with deeply joyful moments 🙏🏻💕🙏🏻

Praying Pause

Do you have eyes but fail to see? —Mark 8:18 

The way we see the world shapes our lives. Our eyes can look at the world in many different ways: we can have a fearful or trusting perspective. How do you see? 

~Become aware of your breath and let the steady rhythm of your breathing bring you into this peaceful moment…

~What do you see…? Are you grateful for what you see…?

∼ Look at a loved one’s face with new eyes today… 

∼ Look at yourself with loving and compassionate eyes today…

May this challenging time help us to see with new eyes; eyes that truly see!

Praying Pause – Miracles

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
—Albert Einstein

~Gently rest in your breathing… feel your in-breath… feel your out-breath… 

~Feel the miracle of your breathing for at least five breaths…

~Count the miracles in every day life… starting with the miracle of being alive today 🙏🏻

This is Living!

Praying Pause – “Honor God with your Body”

Therefore honor God with your bodies. ——1 Corinthians 6:20

~ Become aware of your breathing…

~ Deepening your breath just a little, strengthening your lungs…

~ Feel the clothes touching your body…

~ Feel your body touching the chair or couch you are sitting on…

~ Rest in the moment and allow your body to relax… softening your face… relaxing your shoulders… 

~ Breathe deeply into this sacred moment…

~ How can you honor God and Life with your body today…?

Praying Pause – Appreciate your Hands

Bless to me, O God, My heart and my speech, And bless to me, O God, The handling of my hands. —Celtic Morning Prayer

More than ever before in life, we have to be aware of our hands; what we touch, how we touch and what we can’t touch.
We express our thoughts and emotions with our hands. We work with our hands. We pray with our hands. And we touch with our hands. Let’s have a new awareness and appreciation for our hands today🙏🏻

∼ Breathe gently, and become aware of your hands… 

~ Feel your hands without looking at them… 

∼ Slowly and consciously open your eyes and look at your hands…

∼ Fold your hands in prayer today even if you have not done so in awhile…

∼ Be aware of the miracle and work of your hands throughout this day…

~ Wash your hands with a new appreciation today and be fully present while washing your hands…
🙏🏻💕🙏🏻

Praying Pause – Breathing out God’s Love/Divine Healing

 We are all on a spiritual journey and experience God/The Divine in different ways. Please use your own way and your own words if you have a different access to praying for someone/sending love and light and healing to someone.

Connecting this way, since we cannot visit or be in physical contact during this challenging time, is a beautiful gift to all of us. Please pray/send love because we know it works as quantum physics now scientifically proves. 

∼ Be aware of your breathing and take a moment to calm your mind… 

~Breathe gently, knowing that a power bigger than yourself is breathing through you…

∼ As you continue to breathe gently, “see” the person you want to pray for… 

∼ As you breathe in, inwardly say the name of God/Love/Divine Presence… 

∼ As you breathe out, inwardly or out loud, say the name of the person you pray for/send love and healing to… 

∼ Continue this prayer in the rhythm of your breathing until you feel a sense of peace…

~Let this prayer, and the knowledge that God/Divine Love is holding your loved one, also be a comfort to you…

~If you can visualize God’s Healing Light/ Divine Love flow into your crown chakra (the top of your head) and out of your solar plexus (right where your ribs meet) to your loved one, it will connect you and your loved one energetically and spiritually…

I am praying and sending LOVE to all of you 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻
