The day where night meets day in the middle. The days have been growing longer and nights shorter since December. As we come into spring, you can feel the energy begin to shift. Its a time of growth, of new beginnings, of action. Its time to plant those seeds which we want to nurture and grow in the coming months.
This time of year is a great time to create a Sankalpa. Sankalpa is an intention, but more that an intention you just throw out there. You sit with yourself, and feel into your heart. You create a Sankalpa with sacred intention. How do you want to feel? What do you want to manifest into your being?
To create your Sankalpa, it's a great idea to first go inside and feel into your heart, and allow what is to arise. Practicing yoga and then sitting in meditation is a great way to begin.
Planting actual seeds as well, is a good reminder of the seeds you plant for your Sankalpa. What do you want the garden of your mind and body to look like? What do you want the garden in your home to look like? When creating a Sankalpa, setting an intention, or working with manifesting, always say it in the present tense, as if it is already truth, it is already happening, you have already manifested it and you are living the life you desire.
For me, this year, I focus on gratitude. Being thankful each and every day for what life brings to me. I also am focused on raising my vibration with positive thoughts and vibrant food. I renew my commitment to my yoga and meditation practice as well, as allowing myself to go deeper into the source of the divine within me. I allow myself to trust and believe in the magick of all beings and realize nothing is a mistake and nothing is by accident.
