I know, it sounds weird, right? What do you mean, who’s in charge of my atmosphere? Do I have an atmosphere? What is my atmosphere and how could I not be in charge of it?
While it may sound a little ‘out there’ we all get it when someone comments on the atmosphere of an event, moment or place.
Someone comments, “Wow, that had such a great vibe”, or “That just felt creepy!” and we all nod knowingly!
We don’t always register that we are picking up on the atmosphere, but on reflection, we can name it.
Just as there are external atmospheres that affect us, we all have internal atmospheres. Our connectedness or lack of with God and others will influence our inner world and atmosphere. And it will always find its way out as we project our atmosphere onto those with whom we come into contact.
If we aren’t aware of our inner world, if we are dictated to by circumstances and situations and react rather than respond, we are not in charge of our atmosphere.
You can’t help but have and project an atmosphere. It’s part and parcel of being alive!
Make sure that you are the one who is in charge of it!
