Setting an intention is the first step to manifesting what you want. But, if your goal isn’t clear or tangible enough, it will be very difficult to accomplish that dream without a little more work on behalf of yourself.
Knowing exactly what you’re going for can help in this way – as well as knowing how and when things are supposed happen!
What have you manifested so far this year? Have your needs been met or is there still a lot of work to be done. If it’s the latter, then I hope my 7-step intention setting process can help!
Today, let me show you how to set powerful intentions that will manifest in as little as just two weeks––by following these simple steps:
1) make sure that what isn’t want conflicts with other things;
2) ask for exactly what you want and attach an emotion like joy or excitement when doing so;
3) envision yourself having already received whatever it was asked for–include details if possible (even smells are great!)
4) state aloud something about this new reality while feeling its effects
7 Questions To Help You Set Powerful Intentions
1- Why Do You Want This Intention To Manifest?
Why do you want to manifest a million dollars?
This answer is simple, but it may not be the best answer. Let’s try again – what are your reasons for wanting more money?
Do you want that extra income so that someday in the future when all of our children have flown away from home and don’t need us any longer then we can retire on an island with no one around as company except each other or maybe just some time at peace without worry about anything else outside of ourselves would make things seem better.
Or perhaps if there was something specific like paying off debt because let’s face it; sometimes these bills take over our lives until they’re gone- constantly whispering their names into ears day after day! The list could go
We all have our reasons for wanting to manifest money. Some of us want the security of having enough cash on hand so we can live well and care for loved ones, or invest in causes important to us.
Others may just want their business idea to be successful because it will make them proud that they created something monetarily viable.
Whatever your reason is though, you don’t need a million dollars stacked up-to feel like yourself again; one dollar could make a world of difference!
When you spend time figuring out what’s driving your desires, it might be a little bit different than when you started.
Sometimes when we give ourselves the opportunity to look deeper into our motivations and intentions behind why we want something, that changes how much focus or energy is given towards manifesting those things in reality because sometimes they’re not even really aligned with who we are at all anymore.
So if for instance there was anything specific about this process that didn’t seem right to me before but now I’m reconsidering my true intention–my purpose as one of many manifestations on earth–I may have needed some sort of course-correction after answering these questions rather than just following whatever originally came up without revisiting everything a fresh.”

2- What Emotions Will You Experience When This Intention Manifests?
I’ve heard people say they never know how to feel when their intention manifests. I find that if you have the right intention, your feelings will come naturally and fill in all the spaces where there were previously gaps or emptiness.
If this isn’t happening for you, it might be worth taking a step back and thinking about what is actually fueling those intentions? For instance maybe your goals don’t excite or thrill you at first glance which could mean something else needs some attention instead of just not knowing how to manifest properly!
When I first tried this, the best thing to do was figure out what it would take in my life for me not to feel disappointed. What if $20 doesn’t work? Well, that could happen!
But even if it didn’t come true after manifesting and visualizing a specific amount of money…I still felt excited because then at least I knew there were other ways of getting things done too.
Imagine if you had the power to manifest anything in the world, no matter how big or small. For a few seconds when we get excited about something that is coming our way – it’s like receiving $20 from an unknown source (even though they may be closer than ever). And for those brief moments, there are two possibilities:
The first possibility is that excitement and anticipation will propel us into manifestation mode which allows us to act as antennas attracting opportunities and things related to what was just manifested.
The second possibility could lead nowhere because without any care whatsoever towards your intention; perhaps this interest will fade out quickly after some time passes by…
3- How Can You Anchor This Intention Into Your Daily Life?
Writing a book is an amazing feat and every author has their own way of staying motivated. Let’s say you want to become famous for your writing skills, here are some easy ways that don’t require much time or effort at all: set up notifications on your phone that congratulate you with phrasing like “congratulations on getting the great news! Your new novel will be published soon.”
Some people might say that there are rules about what you can and cannot do, but I think the way forward is to be true to yourself.
If you want a new title for your job or just because it sounds cool – make business cards with an emblem of whatever profession strikes your fancy!
The Universe will help manifest this manifestation in reality too so don’t hesitate to take action now if these words resonate with you as well.

4- Is This Something You Still Want?
I often find myself setting my intentions based on societal expectations, or things I may have wanted in the past. But what about right now?
Another intention-setting tip that you should try is to ask yourself if it’s something you want at this very moment.
Changing your mind is a huge part of life, and sometimes it frustrates those around you. But the Universe doesn’t care – so don’t let that stop you from doing what’s right for YOU!
If after manifesting something with one intention and being patient for weeks/months but nothing has manifested yet- take time to do some self reflection on how well said manifestation fits in with where your energy currently lies.
And so in order to truly reflect, it takes time away from social media and other people.
(Note: This input is not enough for an output)
To realize your intentions, you need to know the truth and be true.
Know your truth apart from outside influences because let me tell you it’s SO easy to get caught up in what other people say. You should want for yourself, not for them! Be true and honest with who you are as an individual so that the best things happen in life.
5- Are You Willing & Able To Take Action?
When you want to manifest, it’s important that your intention is something you can take reasonable action on. You need to ask yourself if this is either possible or willing for you?
Let’s say we are talking about a soul mate; it would be unlikely that without putting some effort in somehow, someone just randomly pops up and becomes right for us – but not all intentions are so easily measurable by the actions one takes.
Super-duper important to remember as well when asking what our intentions should be (whether they’re new ones or revisiting old) is whether they match with who we really want ourselves and others around us to become — because ultimately, while manifestation may seem like magic at first glance from afar…it couldn
Who will you be in the face of an epidemic? Will you stay inside and refuse to interact with others, or are your thoughts on this more complicated than that (maybe not right now at the beginning of a major global health issue as I write this)? When life is hard it can bring out our best selves.
Are you shy and introverted but have been wanting make some changes anyway? Would love for someone new enter into your world because they’re missing from where they should be most – by your side.
You can’t manifest your intentions unless you create space and allow for movement. The Universe will only do so much! You have to be willing to open the doors of opportunity, opening up windows for manifestation’s arrival. Get it?
6- Do You Trust & Believe This Intention Can Manifest?
Big intentions can be scary, but they don’t have to keep you up at night.
Setting big goals is a lot of fun and it’s okay if your’re scared — just know that there are ways to set an intention so that even though the goal might seem ridiculously difficult or impossible, deep down inside you believe in yourself enough not only for success to feel possible…but most importantly: probable!
You can manifest whatever you want in life. You just have to believe it and take action. Things happen for a reason, so if things are happening that seem like they’re not going your way then there has got to be something bigger coming up on the horizon!
This is yet another reason why I love the idea of starting small! Smaller manifestations are easier to remember and realize, so they take less mental energy. It’s much more powerful to start with a cup of coffee than it would be for me to visualize myself as a millionaire at this stage in my life.
Once you see these smaller manifestations trickle in with regularity, your faith increases greatly which means that when you do work on larger goals or desires later down the line – like manifesting yourself as being able to afford an apartment instead living out of hotels – those things seem inevitable because now there’s no doubt inside your mind about whether or not they will happen; rather, all questions center around how long until their manifestation occurs?
7- How Long Are You Willing To Wait?
And finally, do you want to get what you need right now or are you willing to wait it out? Because the Universe does not work on your time. Sometimes manifestations come in minutes and others take weeks!
This final question is critical because look – some things can happen quickly while other times they may never manifest at all. So how long will have patience for this intention of yours?
The key to understanding your intentions is knowing how long you’ll wait before giving up, trying something else or concluding that the law of attraction doesn’t work for you.
We all want things. Sometimes we need them urgently, and sometimes it’s more of a luxury but not quite a necessity when considering our existence/happiness to be sufficient enough for the time being.
This is where you must ponder what your intention truly is in order to properly manifest that which you crave most from life – whatever it may be!
