Giving, Receiving Comfort by Prayer; Meditation

When loved ones are sick, we may sometimes feel powerless to help, and sad ourselves.

You can give and receive calming spiritual comfort while quietly sitting with the person, or even from a distance, through this silent meditative practice:

Sitting in a chair, fold your hands and close your eyes. Quietly begin regular even breathing. For example: breathe in one count; breathe out one count; breathe in one count; continue.

After at least a minute of even breathing let your attention turn to your Higher Power. Ask that your loved one be spiritually and bodily comforted. Ask for their peace of mind.

Ask for your own peace of mind and comfort to be able to accept the course of their illness with grace and fortitude.

The simple requests of asking for comfort, for the one sick and for ourselves, give peace of mind, and when we feel peaceful our body also relaxes; we feel less tense.

During the years my children were growing up, and fell sick, I would sit with them in a peaceful and calm manner, and they would finally relax and nap.

Giving comfort; receiving comfort
By finding peace and relaxation first
In ourselves.

I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and planetary peace. Click the article here to read about it.
