Intention, Desire Statement, Goal…whatever you call it…Setting Intention is the foundation to the Manifestation process…It’s the blueprint of your desire…To manifest abundance, peace and prosperity in your life…it’s crucial to get comfortable with setting intentions in the premise of the manifestation…
Every Manifestor has a unique way of setting Intentions…You need to practice and tweak what works for you…Listed below are the five most powerful steps of setting Intentions that I gathered from reading loads of Law of attraction books, fellow Manifestors and tried and tested them myself…
1.) Be Authentic
Meditate on your Desire..Notice how it feels when you visualise the manifestation…Meditating on the desire will help you with clarity around your desire. Meditation will help you be authentic about what you actually want so that you can frame the correct intention and set it. You might confuse the “how” of the desire for “what” you want
.For an example – You wish to be debt free/ travel the world/ buy something expensive….You might think your desire is having/making more money for the same..and hence your intention simply would be – I intend to/make more money…the fact is money is just a way towards the manifestation of these desires not the desire itself…Being authentic , your intention would be I am excited/thrilled/ happy to be debt free/ travel the world/ buy something expensiveBe authentic with your desire..know what you really really want Click To Tweet
2.) Be Specific
Clarity is extremely important…You’ll manifest mixed outcomes if you are not clear about your Intention…Clear Intentions is half the manifestion process done…Imagine yourself ordering a pizza…You just don’t say”pizza” and the pizza of your choice gets delivered…but you specifically tell about the size, base, toppings and customize it to your heart’s content…You get to enjoy the pizza of your choice only when you are clear about what you want and you are specific while placing the order…Similarly while setting an Intention it is extremely essential that you be as clear and specific as possible…If it is clear in your Mind... it already exists in the ethereal plane Click To Tweet
3.)Write it down
Writing your intentions enables you to be clearer about your desire…Also writing it down singles it out from the rest of the mental chatter that accompanies desires…Make sure you write it like an affirmation and in the present tense….
“I AM” are extremely powerful words as they address directly to your being…if you begin your Intention with I AM, it engages your conscious and subconscious minds together in the process of manifestation…It also anchors the Intention in the Present and to the frequency of fulfillment…
An Intention format that works very well for me isI AM SUCCESSFULLY MANIFESTING(Your desire as specific as possible), OR SOMETHING BETTER IN DIVINE TIMING FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL Click To Tweet
You can dedicate a beautiful diary to your Intentions .In their book Ask and it is Given ,Abraham Hicks write about a beautiful process for this step called the Creation box…In this process you can make a creation box and fill it with pictures, collectible representing your desires…Get as creative as you can…Enjoying the process of setting the Intention is as important as manifesting the desired outcome…
Affirmation is a short sentence representing your intention in the smallest possible way and as specific as it could get…The smaller the affirmation, the effective it is and easier to repeat as well.An ideal Affirmation should take closest to the emotional outcome of your intention.
For an example – Intention – I successfully manifest a car of my dreams or something better in the divine timing for the highest good of all…Affirmation – I am thrilled/delighted/excited to manifest the car of my dreamsThe ideal most affirmation - short, simple, closest to the emotion of the desire and repetition friendly Click To Tweet
The act of Letting Go is the finial…I cant stress enough on this step…Generally after setting an intention we keep thinking about it and then doubt creeps in, impatience takes over and a resistance is created between you and your desired outcome…Therefore it is essential to let go, surrender and trust the process…Let’s take the example of the pizza in step 1…after ordering it do you obsess over when will it arrive? will it arrive or not? will it be as per my order?…No… you just know that once you have given your order, your job is done…you forget about it and it comes to you…Similarly your desired outcome will come to to you in its own time only when you detach from it…The more emotionally detached you are from the outcome…the sooner the outcome becomes your reality…
The most essential part of manifesting an idea from a thought to reality is the innate knowing that your desired outcome IS going to manifest and there is no other way round….Your job is to make sure your thoughts and feelings amplify this knowing and not act contrary to it…
Take a deep breath…Know that by setting your intention specifically and precisely you have activated the process of manifestation and trust with abundance that your desired outcome will come to you in the right time….
