I have a vivid memory of talking about the ‘sankalpa’ at one of my yoga nidra workshops and how you have to decide on that ONE goal, that one thing you want above all others.
One of my students asked if we really had to choose just one. And the answer is yes.
When we pour ourselves completely into one thing, all our energy goes to feeding that one goal and success becomes inevitable.
When we try to accomplish multiple things at once, our energy becomes scattered. We may get there in the end, but it will take a whole lot longer and require a lot more energy because we’re constantly stopping and starting.
Think about a snowball rolling down a hill – the hardest bit is starting. Once it gets going, it picks up speed and momentum and gets easier. But if it slows down, you have to get it started all over again.
All this to say that I’ve decided to pour myself completely into one thing and one thing only.
And that means taking a step back from teaching at the moment.
I will no longer be teaching in Hong Kong or uploading new videos to my YouTube channel. And I also won’t be sending out regular newsletters.
I may do one-off events (like the Garden Gathering in Hong Kong in December where I’ll be teaching yoga nidra), but my focus and energy will be on achieving my one big goal.
So you might not often see me here on my website, but you can still practice with me!
Have you thought about your ‘sankalpa’ lately? What’s the one thing you want to above all others – your heartfelt desire? Pour yourself completely into that one thing and then watch the magic unfold…!
