I first heard this idea of sankulpa when doing a meditation CD about two years ago. It made so much sense, and I continued it for a while. But then, as with so many things, I forgot about it and moved onto other ideas. Yesterday as I was reading my Yoga Journal (October issue) the word sankulpa came up again. Oh yeah I remember this!

Funny thing, is that seed had been planted two years ago, and I've been using it without realizing it. So what is sankulpa? My understanding is that it is a conscious intention about what you want for your life. Trick is, you are not asking for it, you are acting as if you already have it. So my sankulpa for this morning went something like this: I am receiving peace, acceptance, healing, and abundance everyday of my life.

Try it. See what happens. It really is amazing.

So there is a word for it!
I always felt that life was pulling me in a certain direction...not necessarily in the direction that is seems to others to be going, or will be accepted by others. But none-the-less, it s slowly happening. We will have to see how things turn out!
