Q : I have a question about the Sanklap that is to be done in the Yog Nidra. Do I need to repeat the same Sankalp every time while doing Yog Nidra or different Sankalps can be made in each Yog Nidra session. If I repeat the same Sankalp, do I disturb the maturation of the Sankalp?
Answer Adarsh, when I say, make a resolve in Yog Nidra, then it is not like, you can make a Sankalp that I want a new car, I want a new house, I want a job, I want that girlfriend. It is not like that when I ask you to make a resolution. It should be a composite resolution in connection with your life and it’s evolution.
So the resolution can be like this, I wish to be healthier, when you say healthier, all the diseases in your physical body are covered in this resolution. May I be at peace with myself , May I be peaceful and may I get enlightened in this life. Resolve should be like this, something in concern with your evolution and not like my girlfriend should call me by this evening, because Gurumaa says whatever Sankalp you do in Yog Nidra will become a reality.
But it has nothing to do with these small itsy-bitsy desires of your life. I am not talking about the desire fulfillment. Many people who are greedy and lustful, they think that Yog Nidra is the best bet for them as Yog Nidra will put your resolve into nature’s lap and the whole nature will work to fulfill their desire.
Yog Nidra’s objective is not to help you to have our desires fulfilled but Yog Nidra Sankalps are basically meant to help you to understand yourself more, to understand your mind more and give yourself a chance to progress in the spiritual path.
