How to write effective intentions

How to write effective intentions

They don't need to be long or detailed, just something meaningful to you. Once you have created your intention, you will find that you will make both subconscious and conscious decisions that support your intention made.

What does an ‘intention’ actually mean?

The expression itself is easy enough to understand, but does it really really mean. What gives intentions power, and how do we get the most out of them? An intention is a mental state that represents a commitment to carrying out an action or actions in the future. Intention involves mental activities such as thinking, planning and writing it all down.

Ah, where do I start?

Think of and write about what you want. The most common mistake people make when writing intentions is that they list everything that they don’t want rather than focusing on what they want.

An intention is so powerful because it slowly shows people how incredibly powerful they are. When you set an intention, you are activating your receptivity. You will find yourself manifesting, attracting and actioning.

Make it a ritual

Set a time in your calendar, sound an alarm and block out some time. Same place, same time every month. Marking your intentions as a ritual will make it a habit and eventually become something that comes so natural to you.

Gratitude attitude

Gratitude is a very important part of the intention-setting process. Finding peace or the gratitude in your life will help you stop and reset when setting your intentions.

Keeping accountable

While setting your intentions seems easy - doing them can be another thing. A couple of actionable items will help you. Check in with yourself daily. This could be done every morning before you get out of bed. Inhale, exhale and read what you have written out loud.

Ok, I’m ready but need one to get me started
