Making Sankalpa Shakti The New Norm
With uncertainty as the backdrop of our current existence, we have all been hurled into the confines of our homes and made to accept the outcome of the corona virus and the pandemic that follows as it rises by the day. With the mutation of the virus, the new norm may not be something that we as a human race can comprehend as even our outlook or perception of what is, varies from day to day.
It does not help that so many astrologers, spiritual masters and shamans from every corner of the planet forecast massive shifts that are happening to us and to our planet at a speed that is beyond our control – it appears that we are in path of destruction with very little to escape with.
Nostradamus, (16th Century French astrologer, physician and reputed seer, who is best known for his book Les Prophéties), says that there will be a zombie apocalypse this year projected to end the human race and human existence as we know it; meaning that we are about to become extinct some time this year; yet in the same breath, he claims that the year 2022 is about humanity coming to embrace what has been and what is to become – this indicates some level of contradiction in his prophecies, although, he has been accurate to this date about the happenings on our sacred planet.
Mankind is challenged again to dealing with what is truly important to him. As the days go by, it is becoming more and more apparent that with all that is happening around us, we have become the sacrificial lamb as the trade off for the peace of our planet Earth. When we stopped, our ozone layers healed, our rivers thrived, our glaziers became whole again and our eco-system flourished. Without our involvement in the day-to-day affairs of existence, we allowed Mother Earth to blossom.
Yet again, with every single pandemic that has hit this beloved planet of ours, we perished and resurrected again and again to give birth to new possibilities and to new frontiers. For generations, we have fought the wrath of global warming and the depletion of the ozone layers. We rose steadfast against the polio, malaria, AIDS, Ebola, dengue fever and the plague – the nursery rhyme ‘Ring-a-ring-o’-roses’ was a testament of the wrath of the plague: The ‘roses,’ are the red blotches on the skin. The ‘posies,’ are the sweet-smelling flowers people carried to try to ward off the plague. ‘Atishoo,’ refers to the sneezing fits of people with pneumonic plague where they ‘fell down,’ and died.
We have had a history of many challenges and prophecies that have claimed to have the potential to annihilate mankind, sending man into depression, distraught and despair. But we are not so weak for us to stand defeated in the face of atrocities, for even the most gruesome of wars have been conquered by brave men who waged wars for the sole purpose of fostering his kin and progeny.
We are known to be the superior race in the animal kingdom because we are manifested as a represent of the divine, with the capacity to wage wars while sending antidotes to heal and to repair. We have the potential to raise the vibration of the planet by just simply BEING – coming to the center of our Beingness and radiating a frequency that emanates love, light and forgiveness to our planet and Her children, so that all is well again; so that we offer the prospect of our kin and progeny the momentum to flourish and thrive again and again, by doing everything to shift every one of us to vibrating higher for the greater good of all.
Cease feeding the fear and take charge of the reigns of your life with the simple Sankalpa Shakti as the only weapon you require to live as you were meant to.
Sankalpa means an intention formed by the heart and the mind – a solemn vow, determination, or will.
The word, ‘San,’ means ‘to become one with,’ while ‘Kalpa,’ means ‘time and subconscious mind.’ In practical terms a Sankalpa means a one-pointed resolve to focus both psychologically and philosophically on a specific goal – this could include acquiring a job of your dreams or a certain contract that could change your life or even something more apparent to us right now, which is eradicating the ills of this pandemic and restoring our planet to what She once was. The word ‘Shakti,’ refers to the power of that intent and how best you wish to manifest your resolve.
The saying goes, “Sankalpa is everything,’ for without Sankalpa, nothing exists. Here is the most basic Sankalpa Shakti practice that you can incorporate into your daily life. You may want to do this first thing in the morning before you begin your day or before your breakfast even and set the intention for your highest existence. You may also want chose a period of days for your Sankalpa Shakti – 44 days as a minimum for all your goal setting.

I bear witness of wonderful consequences that have come for people whom I have taught Sankalpa Shakti to and wish to offer you a glimpse of all possibilities that can come into your life with this simple resolve.

May you be fear less and free from the bondage of your mind.
