What Is Sankalpa?
“Wear Sankalpa® close to your heart and live your heart’s purpose.”
~SigalContact us for Silver pendants
San= born of the heart, kalpa= way of being.
săn-kăl-pə in Sanskrit (the ancient Indic language of Yoga) is intention, aim, purpose, will, and resolve.
Sankalpa is the deepest intentions & desires that are born in the heart. When you know them and live from them, they become the motivation behind anything you do.
Knowing your Sankalpa helps you organize your life around your authentic and true heartfelt purpose, which leads to deep freedom so you can live your unique expression in the world.
Once you uncover your heart’s purpose, realize your personal intentions, you may momentarily be energizd by them, but as most of us, soon forget. That is why we like to write them down, enscroll them into the Sankalpa, keep close to the heart & remember them, so we can live them.
“An individual who is established in “being” can harness the power of Sankalpa to bring about the spontaneous fulfillment of any desire. In the Upanishads it says: you are your deepest desire.”
~Deepak Chopra M.D.
How Sankalpa® Works
Focusing your heart on a short positive affirmation & remembering it often, will profoundly affect your life. Keep your intentions and prayers physically close to your heart wherever you go. It will strengthen your resolve & prompt you to live from your heart.
Why is it important to discern and articulate our heart’s purpose?
Because it helps us commit mental energy and resources to realizing our true path. Living through our innate desire and purpose, we realize that our life is full of unique personal expression. Consequently, we experience a flow with the natural order of the universe and a unique social harmony. An internal peace emerges and we experience more joy, compassion, care, and love for ourselves and others.
Richard Miller PhD, the founder of the Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI) teaches that heartfelt desire and intentions together form a clear definition to our heart & life’s purpose and move us from vision to action.
The heartfelt desire is the highest order by which you live your life. It is your soul’s innate purpose or desire: your personal calling, life philosophy, or a key value or code you live by. It is “life” living its highest purpose through you as its unique expression.
Intentions are specific commitments and agreements your heartfelt desire is fulfilled through. When you discern your dharma and open to the longing to live your heart’s purpose, knowing the rewards that come from living it, you say yes to life by actively living your intentions.
“The purpose of Sankalpa is not to fulfill desires but to create strength in the structures of the mind and to transform the whole life pattern, not only physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually.”
~ Swami Satyananda Sarasvati
