This is my favorite time of year to share what the practice of "Sankalpa" means and how to use it to live with intention. While our western culture focuses on what we need to do to improve ourselves and our lives, in order to achieve happiness... Yoga brings us the concept of "Sankalpa"... a concept of transformation which comes from a place of self-love.
"Sankalpa" embraces the idea that all you have ever needed to achieve your greatest life, your dharma, is within you already. All you need to do is look within.
I'd like to share with you my favorite article about "Sankalpa". I keep a copy on hand to read and re-read frequently :) Read the full article here
Creating your Sankalpa and setting (and keeping!) your New Year Intentions requires commitment and patience. Tools and reminders will help along the way! The practice of making your own Mala is a wonderful way to help you discover your Sankalpa, or if you've got it...the process will help you connect to your Sankalpa...setting your intentions with each bead you string, each knot you tie. Once complete, your finished Mala will be a constant reminder of your Sankalpa, and your intentions.
