Feeling Good – Setting Your Intention

Birds in the sky

Birds flying high you know how I feel. Sun in the sky you know how I feel. Breeze driftin on by, you know how I feel. It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day… And, I’m feeling good. -Lyrics for Feeling Good by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley

When I teach my Yoga classes, I ask all my students to set their intention or their Sankulpa, before we begin our practice. A sankulpa is a statement formed from within our connection to our higher self.  It’s a statement to be honored above all, because it guides us towards our higher purpose, our best self, and helps to guide our choices on our path. But it’s more than just a statement – it’s multidimensional.  

Your sankulpa could start simply with the intention,  I want to quit smoking.  But, your sankulpa, created as a positive statement in the present tense could be I’m so grateful that I’m smoke free. The statement requires no resolve or will power but a becoming or a knowing of who you really are, and evolving to the true sankulpa of –I am healthy, I am whole. It’s a realization that you already are it, a believing. And, so for awhile we walk side by side with this knowing of becoming, and being, at the same time. The longer we can remain in this state of oneness, the faster we are able to become one with our statement.  One way I find that really helps is to think of your statement with gratitude. Go ahead and think of it…, now, think of it with gratitude that it’s already true! -… powerful right?

So we continue walking on this path side by side, mindfully aware of our sankulpa, and mindfully at every opportunity acting inline with these goals. As we move forward we remain at peace, content, and forgiving when necessary, of our actions and of where we still currently are. Always, remembering and acknowledging however, that you are already healthy and whole.

Feel Good and Believe!

Thought for the day!

Watch your thoughts, they become words.

Watch your words, they become action.

Watch your actions, they become habits.

Watch your habits, they are you.

How you handle yourself, others, tasks, job, etc. Is how you handle everything in life.

Be mindful in everything you do.

 

Just a thought,

Love, Goldi

Radiate Love

Take a moment today to sit in silence, to sit in stillness. While still centered in your stillness – reflect on gratitude, reflect on some of the many small miracles around you, like your breath or the smile of a small child.  Let those thoughts as they begin to grow, start turning into feelings of love and joy, growing larger and larger inside of you. Sit with this feeling for a moment. Then from this centered point of loving and joyful energy, let the energy rays spread out shining brightly in all directions. And, as you carry on through out your day, let the people you encounter see and feel this quality about you; through the way you speak, the way your carry yourself, and through your actions. Radiate Love in everything you do.
