An Easy Inner-Form using the Names of God

  1. Sit com­fort­ably, close your eyes, keep your back rea­son­ably straight, and arrange your legs in a com­fort­able posi­tion.
  2. Take a num­ber of deep breaths by inhal­ing slow­ly for five counts and exhal­ing for anoth­er five counts. Try to take ten of these.
  3. When you begin to feel relaxed, begin the exer­cise by tak­ing a slow inhale while you men­tal­ly say­ing a name of your choos­ing for God. Hold your inhale for at least two counts.(Here are some exam­ples: Source, All-there-is, Uni­verse, Eter­nal One, Great Spir­it, Father, Moth­er, Spir­it, All-Lov­ing One, Heav­en­ly Lord, Holy Light, Light Eter­nal, Spir­i­tus Lumine, I am that I am.)
  4. On the exhale, men­tal­ly say, “I love you and invite you into my life.”
  5. See if you can state twen­ty dif­fer­ent names for God. As you do this,
  6. notice how calm and peace­ful you feel. The names of God help cen­ter a per­son and instill inner peace.
  7. Some peo­ple find it help­ful to use a mala, rosary, or large bead­ed bracelet as they roll beads between the thumb and fore­fin­ger to keep count or com­plete a cycle.
