Sankalpa is an ancient yogic tradition that empowers you to live fully from your heart center, and to receive a life overflowing with love, prosperity, and your innermost, heart-centered desires.
In this post we’ll take a look at the san kalpa mantra, and outline a few statements you can use to apply this powerful technique to your life.
San Kalpa: Meaning and Definition
Sankalpa (also written San Kalpa) is a Sanskrit word used to refer to a life lived with heartfelt intentions.
Most literally, sankalpa can be translated as a single-pointed focus or resolve. It is the will. the solemn individual resolution or vow to act in accordance with your aim, and to witness the manifestation of that aim in the physical world.
Commonly, the practice of San Kalpa is used in combination with Yoga Nidra techniques, and is aimed at gaining clarity and focus in your life. When used in combination with yoga nidra, the practitioner enters a very deep meditation conducive to the reception of spiritual inspiration and innner guidance from the intuitive Higher Self.
How To Use The San Kalpa Mantra
Like most common mantras, the key to invoking the power of sankalpa is through repetition.
You can use this mantra in two ways. The first is to include it into your meditation practice, and sit quietly in meditation drawing your focus entirely onto this phrase. When your mind wanders, simply notice that it has veered off course, and think the mantra once again.
The second technique is to practice repeating the phrase consistently as you go through your day. Every twenty or thirty minutes, take a moment to step back and remember to say “San Kalpa” quietly to yourself.
This will help you to retain your focus and realign your actions with your heartfelt intentions as you go about your normal routine.
A third practice is to use the following sutra statements for this mantra.
