It is often humid here in Atlanta. I recognize that at times, especially with family, emotional humidity exists. Dense emotional humidity enters as a low-pressure system, often following uncomfortable words or actions. The words and actions become past tense yet the humidity remains.
Emotional humidity makes me anxious. I have to wait out the humidity with family and neighbors with patience. All weather passes, but in the interim, I am fanning myself with positive affirmations and avoiding the heat certain times of the day.
Below is my favorite Young Hearts Yoga affirmation to help me relax into the emotional humidity:
I am mountain, thoughts are clouds, life is weather.
“This too shall pass” is a simple reminder that our humid and rainy Atlanta summer of 2017 will pass, along with my emotional humidity.
Namaste sweaty friends!
