Still working on your journey to “Falling in Love with God”? For another idea to keep you going have you thought of scent? Scent is directly connected with the amygdala, where we process emotions and the hippocampus, which is how we access memories. If you use a particular smell while you pray, be it incense, candle, or the smell of the great outdoors, then you begin to condition yourself that every time you smell that smell it will remind you of your prayer time and all the emotions of being one with God brings. Add that smell to your notebook, or bring it with you so that you can easily access that state of mind during stress filled times to remind you that you are not ever alone.
Peace be with you.
