Today is an auspicious day in Hindu calendar as it welcomes the New Year! So my readers who are celebrating the festival, please accept my deepest wishes for welcoming an abundant joy and bountiful health in this new year.
Many religions celebrates their new year at different point in time. For example my Jewish friends celebrated their Rosh Hashanah on the eve of 24th September and my Christen friends will celebrate new year on 1st January.
Despite being on the different days one thing is very unique about the New Year is that it marks a new beginning. It gives an opportunity to the people to reflect on previous year, learn from the experience and inject an enthusiasm to create a fresh start!
Thats when setting a SANKALP, a resolved strong intention, could create a magic in one’s life.
If you are working on few ideas which I shared in my previous blog, you may have already be aware of your health dreams and goals. So be prepared to bring that into reality with the power of Resolved Intention- Sankalp.
We all dream, hope and set the goals during new year but only handful of us see their dreams being fulfilled. So what is the difference between those who are successful and those who forget their goals after only a few months if not weeks?
I think, it is not lack of resources in terms of money, time or knowledge. If that was the case then wealthy and some of the intellectual people would never be overweight or suffered from illnesses such as diabetes. What separate them from those who are healthy in spite of being busy and of average knowledge is that unlike the ‘successful’ they have never put the ENERGY in resolving their intention to succeed.
Unless the ‘intention to gain healthy weight’ is resolved completely and energetically success will play hide and seek with you. You may loose weight but gain back after some time and then loose motivation to work on your dream.
Stop, being in that rut NOW! especially when it is EASY to get out!!!
So how to tap into the power of Sankalp- Resolved intention?
Creating self-awareness is the first step in setting up a strong intention. So if you have not read my previous blog, I encourage you to read it.
Once you know that being at healthy weight is that what you truly desire and you have not just fallen a pray of expectations of society or media of being at size 0/4/8/10 (depending on your location) then you are READY for the success.
Yes setting a Sankalp is that simple! Being aware of your true desire and giving your undivided attention towards its fulfilment.
A great spiritual thought leader, Deepak Chopra often refers to the knowledge from the classic Vedic text known as the Upanishads when explaining power of intention, “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
So the real questions are,
- If being disease free and enjoying healthy weight is what you truly desire? If the answer is yes then,
- Are You Ready For The Shift? If the answer is yes then,
Awesome! Make that resolution, set the intention that- no matter what, I will achieve the success. Now see the MAGIC appearing in your life to help you take actions towards fulfilment of your dreams.
Happy New Year and have fun in resolving the intention and setting the Sankalp!
