Receive reassurance

There are days when we simply need reassurance that everything will be alright and that we can rest into love knowing we are taken care of.

Come into stillness through breath, through bringing awareness from our heads to our hearts and body.

You may want to breathe deeply for a few rounds making the exhale longer than the inhale.

Allow yourself to be fully supported by the chair, relax the shoulders, the face, the tongue.

When stillness has come and you feel settled check in with how you are today.

As you bring attention to this question, be aware of how you feel in your body, your emotions, your thoughts.

Does anything surface in you as a need?

Are you aware of places that need the reassurance that everything’s going to be alright?

I’m going to read some words from a prayer, a Psalm and another prayer.

Welcome these words as the reassuring love of God, holding, caring for and seeing you more deeply than anyone else.

Know that these words meet you with loving kindness and welcome them as the reassurance you need.

Holy Wisdom, Mother God, you hold my time in your hands. Your providence guides the stars and my cells. Your compassion opens my heart to healing in the midst of pain. Help me rest in you, trusting the future in your care and giving comfort to those who mourn, hurt, and face personal challenge. In Christ’s name. Amen.

O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
Psalm 139:1 – 3

I remind myself that I am in the presence of God.
I will take refuge in her loving heart.
She is my strength in times of weakness.
She is my comforter in times of sorrow.

As I slowly repeat these words be attentive to any that stand out to you and receive the truth they contain.

Rest in the peace now of being known and loved, of your life being held and sustained by God, by love, by the Creator of the Universe.

Let go of any heavy weights you’ve been carrying and trust them to One who cares more for you than you know.

Know that the love of God not only guides, holds and sustains the stars, but also your life and every one of your cells.

Let this truth bring rest.

Surrender to this love, welcome this sustaining power, be reassured that all will be well.
