Manifesting one’s life, or realizing what one imagines to be the perfect life, is known as Sankalpa, from ‘Kalpa', meaning vow or intention, and ‘san’, the connection with Godness/the Divine, or Universal Energy. In the yoga tradition, which refers to the Indian way of life, Sankalpa is simply connecting to the highest truth. It is unique for each one of us, and is as unique as each one of us (dharma).
Manifesting is not morphing into something that we are not; it is simply realizing who we innately are. It is not the ego-driven will that suddenly decides to get what it wants or thinks it needs. Dharma is what is uniquely you. You need to change nothing, you need to make no sudden decisions to make life suddenly perfect.
How do we manifest our best life?
• Be simple, like a child. Expect and know your Divine Self will guide you.
• Self study (swadhyaya). Meditate deeply, and constantly. Hear (passive act - accepting) rather than Listen (rational thinking mind) the messages from the Source.
• Faith works for the simple minded. Have faith. It is the Divine Will and not my will. The following are all connecting us to that Divine Source of Energy:
Iccha – the desire, the drive, the energy. Write them out. Revise them regularly.
Karma – the daily actions need to realize the dharma. If you are loving it and serving others, you are on the right track.
Jnana – Wisdom to stay on the right path. This takes time, discipline and perseverance.
Have no doubts! Each doubt lessens the energy of the unidirectional flow towards realization and Self-Realization.
May you be fulfilled.
