Sankalpa means an intention formed by the heart and mind -- a solemn vow, determination, or will. It has the potential to release tremendous power by clearly defining and focusing on a chosen goal both psychologically and philosophically. Its effect is to awaken the willpower within by uniting the conscious awareness with the unconscious forces lying dormant and bring about a positive change in one’s life.
As a tool meant to harness the will, a crystal gemstone bracelet (talisman) consecrated with an intention (sankalpa) is a constant reminder to stay focused and harmonize our mind and body. Wear one daily beginning on the New Moon and place another one on at the Full Moon to assist in reforming of habits, improving the quality of life and living, creating a real change within our personality and realizing what we are trying to achieve in this life.
The Sankalpa Talisman contains 22 gemstone beads (8mm) hand-strung and knotted on elastic cord. Included is information on the crystals.
