What I want to talk about today is a method of strengthening your ability to connect to god. It is very straight forward, but the subtlety involved can make it difficult.
Long for divine love
If it comes to you, thats great keep doing that.
If however longing for god's love makes you uncomfortable, if it feels difficult;
then let yourself feel that discomfort.
To put this another way, The prayer for divine love brings to the forefront exactly what is currently preventing you from actually receiving love.
In my experience of doing this it is usually feelings of fear that come up.
Fear of not being able to 'find' god,
Fear of failing if I try,
Fear that there may be no response, or that something other than god may answer.
One more thing. I believe this should go better for you is you do not cease the longing for love as you feel through the discomfort that comes up. In this way god will be able to assist in the release. The discomfort, the fear will just flow out easily as divine love flows in.
This is my go-to practice when I feel stuck.
