"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage. ~Anais Nin~

The powerful Sanskrit word sankalpa, means "resolve". Resolve is also a powerful word in the English language meaning "firmness of purpose, intent or determination". You can feel the power of sankalpa by saying, "My sankalpa is ___ or my resolve is ___" .

It feels like an intention with the outcome built in. With the practice of yoga nidra, you choose a sankalpa - one, single, powerful intention or desire you would like to manifest or bring forth into reality. In the stillness of yoga nidra, sankalpa is manifested by embodied and brought into your being in the present moment.

With so much available to you, the challenge becomes choosing your sankalpa. If you need help choosing yours, answer this question, "What is the one thing you want with all of your being that you know would alter your reality and make you absolutely believe in your self and your power to fulfill your desires?"

For me, it was writing my book. Now that my book is complete, I feel a floodgate of energy from the Universe has swung wide open. I literally feel like a kid in a candy store, with the Universe just waiting for me to expand upon my sankalpa. If your sankalpa doesn't come to you right away then meditate on the question above, read it each day or journal on it.

Once you do find your sankalpa then meditate on it, read it each day or journal on it. The key is to feel resolve. Feel your sankalpa, enter your body, your being and see yourself experiencing life once you manifest it. Keep this as your single point of focus until you actually do bring it into reality and then enjoy the magnificent shift in energy and momentum that occurs. Continue to create from this rich and expansive place.
