A Deep Dive To Setting Intentions, and Using Them Powerfully

Setting intentions is a powerful practice that every person on this planet, does daily. Intentions are set through language. They are put in action through words and sometimes repetition. Though directs them.

I like looking at the definition of intention. To get a clear picture of what the root of the word means and not just out personal interpretation of the word.


The act or fact of intending; determination to do a specified thing or act in a specified manner.

A Life Without Intentions:

Before we discuss how to set intentions Let cover what like is actually like without intentions.

A life without intentions is usually one without direction. You haven’t taken the time to craft what you’d like to have happened in your life. Goals, dreams, what’s important you is all unclear.

You’ll often find yourself going around and around in circles. Perhaps it feels like your trying at life but you’re not getting anywhere.

Life is a constant struggle, pain and confusion when you’re living without direction.

What you’re usually missing in those moments:
  1. Extracting the lessons.
  2. Taking a new step into a new direction.
  3. Letting go of what’s not working.
  4. Setting intentions.
  5. Creating new goals & dreams for yourself.
Ask yourself:

“What am I not doing from day to day to see new result?”

A Life With Intentions:

When we create and a new direction in our lives, our results change drastically.

A life with intentions is usually one that is far more guided and seamless. I’m not saying nothing happens, because there will always be surprises, unfortunate events and some sadness in life. How you deal with those moments will be the ultimate transformation you have. When something bad happens, you’ll extract the lesson, start making better choices and start setting intentions that direct you on your new path.

You will no longer find yourself going around and around in circles again. What you intend will always be at working for you, while you focus on living your life. Things will start to fall in place seamlessly.

Surround yourself with quotes that call out for more abundance in your life!

Setting your intentions allows you to live your life each day & take aligned action towards your dreams and vision that you’ve created, while your intentions do all the heavy lifting and align things for you. When the timing is right, things will fall into place.

Most powerful emotional place:
  1. Set intentions.
  2. Don’t focus on the HOW.
  3. The life you love, do what you love.
  4. Release all expectations and surrender.
  5. Take opportunities that drop in.
  6. Be open always.
  7. Be Learned.

Creating Intentions and Their Best Practices!

Below I’ve included the core components of creating intentions for yourself and just remember  your commitment and your word is of high importance in this process.

Intentions are:

  • Directional
  • A Plan
  • An Idea or Aim
  • A Goal
  • In The Moment
  • For The Future
  • Visualization & Target

Start An Intention With:

  • “I’m intending”
  • or “I see” not “I want”
  • “I completed”
  • or “I accomplished.”
  • “I did”
  • or “I’m in the process of”

How To Phrase Them Properly:

  • They are with out a time limit, let the universe guide their results.

  • Setting them can not be specific to a human being “Joe asked me out.”

  • They aren’t focused on the “HOW” “I intend to sell my car by posting it on craigslist.”

  • You’re phrasing a result you see for yourself in your future. Write is as if it’s already completed.

  • Don’t say “I want” because to want means to not have & you’ll never have it. Say “I see”

  • When intention a dollar goal always write a + beside it to not limit the amount you obtain.

  • Your intentions only work for you. For example “My best friend got engaged.” is not a proper intention.

Other Powerful Tips!

Intentions Work For You:

Intentions work for you, and a component for their powerful formula is LETTING GO & RELEASING that desire. There is a difference, when you continue working towards an intention, you’re also not releasing the desire and letting things fall into place.

In life it’s important to take action and work for what you’d like to have in your life. That’s what we call every day living.

An intention is a moment of setting a direction then that moment is released into the universe. Intentions don’t work when we keep obsessing and working on them. It’s a faith based proccess.

You keep living, creating and taking ALIGNED action in your life each day. Persist in doing so, just don’t get the two confused, because they’re very different.

Follow These Steps:

  1. Ask & intend for what you’d love to experience
  2. Take & live in aligned action to show the universe it’s important to you.
  3. Release everything, all expectations, desires, and just do what you love to do in your life.
  4. Keep living in alignment.
  5. Let things drop in for you.
  6. Embrace what comes in.
