Power of Stating Intentions

Put out into the world your intentions and watch how everything starts to align toward your goals.

The Impact of Stating Your Intentions

When you put your intentions (aspirations, desires, goals, or objectives) out into the world, you set a powerful force in motion. It’s as if you’ve whispered your dreams to the universe, and the universe listens and begins to conspire in your favor. Stating your intentions publicly or in writing brings clarity to your goals and desires. By clearly articulating what you desire, you create a powerful shift in your mindset and energy.  This clarity has the remarkable effect of aligning your thoughts, actions, and external circumstances with your objectives. You’ll notice it seems the world responding in unexpected ways, providing opportunities and insights you might have otherwise overlooked. The act of vocalizing your intentions sends a clear signal to your subconscious, which then actively seeks opportunities to achieve your stated desires. This process can be both inspiring and transformative.

How to State Your Intentions

To harness the transformative power of stating your intentions, begin by being crystal clear about what you want to achieve. Write your intentions down in a journal and express them to someone you trust. To make your intentions more concrete, use the SMART criteria (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound). This helps you create a focused and actionable plan. Share your intentions with a supportive friend, mentor, or a community that aligns with your goals. Their encouragement and feedback can be invaluable. Visualize daily, allowing your mind to internalize and work towards them. Additionally, take actionable steps toward your intentions, no matter how small. Consistent, deliberate actions will further align your path with your objectives.

Your Turn

Stating intentions is like setting the compass of your soul, guiding your actions and attracting the opportunities that align with your deepest desires.

These prompts can help you tap into the transformative power of stating intentions and aligning with your actions.

  1. State your intentions.
    • What are my deepest desires, aspirations or goals? Write them down as clear intentions.
    • Consider your long-term intentions. How can you break them down into smaller, actionable steps?
  2. Describe a person or group you feel comfortable sharing your intentions with.
    • What kind of support or encouragement would be most helpful from them?
    • What fears or doubts do you have about sharing your intentions with others? How can you overcome them?
  3. Explore the power of visualization (visualize you have achieved your goal).
    • How will it feel when you achieve?  Celebrate your future success.
    • Write a congratulatory letter to your future self, detailing how you successfully achieved your aspirations and date it. Revisit this letter periodically to track your progress.

Remember, when you state your intentions and align your thoughts, emotions, and actions with them, you open yourself up to a world of possibilities. Stay focused, take inspired action, and watch as everything starts to align towards your goals.

BECOME AWARE:  Name one intention (or small step in achieving a larger goal) you can make that you want to occur today.  How would it impact you if it happened.

I am grateful for (Name the intention).  CELEBRATE like you have achieved it!
