Feeling heavy-hearted and concerned this morning for a loved one who may have been exposed to the virus.
I can’t share any personal details right now.
Thinking about any of you who may be worried about loved ones in these difficult days.
Along with traditional words of prayer, here is a practice that often brings me peace:
Sitting quietly, call forth an image or memory of the loved one. Feel the dear one in your chest, near the warm beating sturdy heart. Imagine the person in your heart, drinking in the nectar of your care. Breathe softly and gently and lovingly into the spirit of your beloved.
When and if fear arises during the day, return to the practice. Sometimes it helps to cup the hands gently over the heart and even murmur sweet lullabies like “there, there. I love you. Bless, you, hold you, keep you.” Adding whatever words of supplication or comfort that feel right…
That is all for today. My shaky self commits to returning to the Holy Heart again and again. Blessings to you and your precious loved ones. xoxo
