Set aside 10 minutes of quiet time.
Lie down or sit down and allow yourself to be comfortable and warm.
Close your eyes and bring all your attention to your breath.
Breathe in and out – letting your chest rise and fall.
Let go of any tension in your body as you exhale.
If any thoughts pop into your mind, just let them
go as you exhale.
Allow yourself to feel safe and protected.
Bring to your mind what it is you’d like to feel more of in your life.
Peace, ease, success, motivation, pleasure, fun, organisation.
Think about what it is you’d like to resolve and ask yourself...
“How is it that I need to be in order to experience that?”
Feel how it would feel to feel that.
What would you say to yourself if you had
that now? What can you say to yourself to invite more of that now?
Allow a short phrase or sentence or even just a few words to come to
mind that captures that.
Breathe in and out and think upon the sankalpa that just came to mind.
If it is not a perfect fit tweak it a little, but know that even if it is not perfect, it may just rewrite itself to fit you better as you go about your day.
If nothing comes to mind then use “I am peace.”
Let it sink in as you repeat it to yourself aloud or
in your mind.
Spend a few minutes thinking and feeling this.
Then bring your awareness back to your breath.
Feel your belly rise as you inhale and fall as your exhale.
Then slowly bring some movement back into your body and open your eyes.
Now that you have formed your sankalpa, find moments every day to repeat it to yourself. You can sit quietly and do this, or you can repeat it while washing the dishes, or at a stop light.
Let it come to you when you need it.
Just a little effort to discover your sankalpa and even one five minute practice of repeating it to yourself is enough to set up a chain reaction that will assist you in living a life aligned to your path.
It is your own personal guide reminding you that you are already that which you require to achieve your goals.
It is your friendly reminder that will move you away from ‘too much’ and towards fulfilling your life’s purpose.
