Unloading Your Pressure Baggage
On a spiritual level, pressure can be defined as an external force acting on us divided by our ability to bear the force or resist it. Thus, force and resistance capacity are two variants in the equation of pressure. Everyone has different resistance capacities.Two people with different resistance capacities will experience different amounts of pressure on being subjected to the same magnitude of force. A feeling of pressure absorbs our freedom and gives us an experience of being ruled by an external entity. There are a lot of people who hold the belief that they can experience freedom only in the absence of an external force, which is almost impossible, since there is almost some force or the other exerted on the soul by ups and downs that takes place in the role that it plays through the physical body; which includes the physical body itself; profession; family; wealth, all types of relationships, etc. Even our own personality, thoughts, feelings, emotions etc. exert pressure on us at times.
Apart from the resistance capacity, the other variant in the equation of pressure is not only force but our perception of what the magnitude of the force is. This depends primarily on the beliefs that we carry. Two people will perceive the same situation in their role (as explained above) as forces of different magnitudes. While we hold the belief that life events, people and their expectations from us, are the forces that are the causes of our pressure, we will be able to do little to change the habit of being pressurized. It is we who pressurize ourself and allow the outside to pressurize us. We can either go through our life journey while experiencing feelings of being emotionally imprisoned, confused, rushed and hurried, or we can do the same with the power of faith and determination, at the same time maintaining patience and maintaining our inner emotional stability. In some cases, some of us put pressure on ourselves, because we carry the belief that a bit of pressure is good in order to achieve what we want; it provides us with positive energy and motivates us. So this is an example of perceiving a force in our life, a force which does not exist. Such kind of pressure can deceive us and give us a feeling of being beneficial in the short term but it can have harmful effects on us in the long term. Some others might not experience this pressure because they do not carry this belief at all and don’t invite this force.

The Circle Of Influence And Worry
Make a list of the things that worry you most and decide if they are in your circle ofinfluence or worry. Think about what you can really do to have an influence on each of them in an effective way. By determining which of these two circles is the centre around which most of your time and energy revolves, you can discover a great deal about your level of positivity. Positive people focus on the things they can do something about. If necessary, they change their attitude. They are aware that perhaps they cannot change the circumstances but they can improve their inner attitude. This is what positive focusing is all about: being creative, thinking differently, being open to listening, being more understanding, more communicative and showing more solidarity.
Reactive people focus on the problems of the circle and on the circumstances about which they have no control. They react to the defects found in other people. From this worrying, accusations, destructive criticism, feelings of blame, a reactive language and feelings of weakness and frustration can arise. They want others or the circumstances to change first and when that happens, then they will change. Whenever they think that the problem is on the outside, this thought is the problem. The negative energy produced as a result of this approach, combined with the lack of attention to the areas in which they could do something to improve the situation, means that the area of influence decreases in size. They give power to what is external so that it dominates them. In other words they think that change must come from “outside towards the inside”; they think that something that is outside must change before they themselves change.

Nurturing Our Sankalpa Shakti, the sacred Intention
Every prayer must manifest our Sankalpa Shakti in the presence of the moment.
A true Yogic awakening flows with divine grace when we remind ourselves every morning of our daily Sankalpa!
The soft hues of dawn ushers in a surreal silence where we can tap into our deeper self, experiencing the subtle vibrations and sensations which permeate the body, mind, heart and spirit. Yogic Awakening must unfold gentle meditative moments to assuage the flow of our thoughts and sensations reminding ourselves of the need for nurturing our higher being, the soul stirrings of which are in the presence of every moment.
Awakening to a deeper awareness of the breath stirs the soul into this presence of body, mind and heart. Maha Prana is the essence of Shiva and Shakti, the masculine and feminine energies as the flow of Pranic grace. In Yogic parlance we must cultivate the deeper breath of harmony, love and nurturing.
We must heal and calm the Prana before moving into our nightly sleep modes. The deep calm Prana salutes our divinity!
Last thing at night we need to spend some quiet moments in contemplation – how much of our Sankalpa have we allowed to manifest through the presence of every moment…..
Sankalpa is not about punishing ourselves through rigid thoughts and practices. We must formalise a vision or Sankalpa with a positive intention rooted in the presence of every moment beginning with our conscious breath and acknowledging that pure Love is our deeper nature which nurtures our true essence.
The core of every sankalpa is nurturing, and a calm mind helps manifest the sankalpa at a deeper level. Reinforcing the sankalpa as divine grace allows it to manifest in our lives as Shakti.
The positive mind-set formalising the Sankalpa from a meditative, calm and sthira space helps to stir positive vibrations that set the Sankalpa into motion. A peaceful heart nurtured through awareness and clarity is the best place to sow the seed of our sankalpa and to resonate with its sacred intention through the spoken word or mantric Shakti force.
Shakti Sankalpa is the sacred Intention which aspires for higher goals in our lives, manifesting our deeper resolution, determination, tenacity, persistence and perseverance in achieving and fulfilling our dharma.
