WHAT IS A SANKALPA?
san - a connection to the highest truth
kalpa - vow, ultimate rule, commitment
A Sankalpa plants a seed in our subconscious, which speaks to our body on a cellular level. The body believes everything the mind thinks, whether a useless and sticky rut or the deepest desire of our spirit. The more we have a thought, belief, or action, the deeper that rut becomes.
What are the deepest desires of your spirit?
In using a Sankalpa we harness our inner power to thrive. While we are sometimes steered down the wrong path by superficial wants, desires that are from the depths of our spirit drive us into a meaningful life. Real desire brings us to life, gives us fulfillment.
In using this deck, you open yourself to uncovering the best version of yourself.
This Self is already there, already present.
Different than a positive affirmation, a Sankalpa is not trying to convince you of anything,
but rather invites you to recognize and manifest something that is already there inside of you.
WHY THE 5 ELEMENTAL CHAKRAS?
We organized this deck around the first five chakras because the use of Sankalpa is a whole body practice. This structure provides a foundation to help you check in with, and address, all aspects of your experience as a complete human being.
Each of the five elemental chakras correspond with facets of our somatic and energetic physiology, the five senses, the Ayurveda doshas, as well as overall emotion-experiences.
As such, the elemental chakras lend themselves beautifully to the practice of Sankalpa, providing us with gret insights as to where in our being our highest calling for balance may reside.
