If you set an intention for manifestation, it will be easier to bring your desires into reality.
In this blog post, I’ll discuss what an intention is, why do you need intention for manifestation, how to set a powerful intention for manifestation using the Law of Attraction and finally how to make those intentions happen.

Firstly, What is An Intention?
The word intention means to aim or plan.
It is the first step of manifestation.
Intention gives you a direction and focus, for your desires, which makes them easier to achieve… especially when it’s combined with visualization.
Because there are many different directions that your desire could take you in!
For example, if you told yourself that you wanted more money – then instead of choosing to focus on how you would spend it, your mind will begin thinking of all the possible ways that money could come into your life.
Why Do I Need Intention For Manifestation?
An intention is a thought that attracts energy into your life.
If you think about an orange, it’s likely to bring something orange into your awareness. This is because thinking of the colour orange sets off associations in our minds – memories, feelings and images related to oranges.
These are all forms of mental energy which influence what we see around us.
An intention works in the same way, except that it is more intentional and purposeful.
When you set an intention for something you want to attract into your life, you are directing mental energy towards a specific goal – which means results will come much faster!
A strong intention also reduces doubt and worries.
When should you set intentions?
There is no specific time you should set intentions. You can do them at any time you’d like!
However, some people like to set intentions during special times such as weekends, holidays, lunar cycles, new years or birthdates.
How To Set An Intention For Manifestation
You want to set intentions for manifestation so that it’s much easier for you to visualize and put faith and conviction into the manifestation process.
This makes it so you send out a really powerful signal to the universe.
Step 1. Get in the Right Mind / Mood
It is very important to be in the right mind-frame before setting an intention. That means you should feel relaxed, excited and open for it!
You can burn incense, or light up a great smelling candle to really put you in a great mood.
Don’t do this when you are upset.
The reason why we do this when you are in a pleasant mood is that you are more malleable if you’re in a happy state. Whereas if you are upset, you will become rigid, doubts may arise within you.
Step 2. Relax Further By Meditating
Meditation helps calm the mind and tune it in with your intuition… where all of our greatest information about life comes from.
You want to relax deeply as this is necessary so that your mind doesn’t wander around.
Step 3. Vividly Imagine What You Want To Manifest
You want to start imagining what you want.
Start by understanding why you want it. After you have that, you want to imagine the feeling of having it now.
Imagine how you will feel when this desire has come into your life – think about what that would be like for as long as you can… and really put yourself in that state of mind.
When we focus on something, our mind sends out a signal to the universe which draws similar things to us.
The clearer we are about our desires, the higher quality signal we are sending out to the universe, and so it will send back better things for us.
Step 4. Write It Down
Now, you want to write everything you vividly pictured and imagined.
You want to write them down and be very descriptive.
Write down all the details you can think of, and be as specific as possible.
For example, if you want a new car – write down the colour it is, how many doors it has and what kind of engine.
The more specific you are about your desires when writing them out then that basically tells the universe exactly what to bring to you!
Leave no room for any thoughts or doubts in your mind. Just leave the intention out there as a form of strong desire.
How do I make my intentions come true?
Since you have your intentions written down, it’s a lot easier to do the whole manifestation process.
1. Visualize Using Your Intentions
Remember how you wrote down your intention?
You can now, read it and you know exactly what kind of emotion you need to feel, what kind of imagery you want to visualize, and every single minute detail.
We want our faith and conviction to increase, and this is why the intention setting exercise helps out a lot!
2. Replace limiting beliefs with positive ones
If you have any limiting beliefs that are holding you back, then this is the perfect time to replace them with positive ones.
You need to do this because your limiting beliefs will come up and sabotage your manifestation efforts.
Your mind is very powerful, but it needs you to lead the way and replace those negative thoughts with positive ones that support what you want. If not then they just give out a bad signal into the universe!
3. Recite Affirmations
Affirmations help us change our way of thinking so that we can get rid of limiting beliefs.
Whenever you have a thought or feeling come up, take notice and write it down in your notebook so you know what to counter with affirmations later on!
Remember – do not be led by any negative thoughts! Always look for the good in everything.
You need to recite your affirmations out loud whenever you feel like it, and especially when those negative thoughts come creeping up.
Remember we want to have strong conviction so we send out a very powerful signal to the universe.
Affirmations help us ingrain it more in our subconscious mind.
I hope you now know how to set up intentions for manifestation so, you can get the life you want.
