The Art of Intentions

What is an intention?

Most of us​ have heard about intentions.  But do we really know how intentions work and why they are so powerful?

We go from setting our intention, we add our goal, take action on our goal...and that is where the magic begins!​

Setting an intention is a powerful tool in your journey towards transforming your life.  However, an intention is useless without having a goal and developing a plan of action.

Look at it this way:

An intentions is the engine.  The desire to reach that goal is the fuel.​

An intention looks like this:  I intend to smile more!

​An intention is stated in the positive, or what you want, versus what you don’t want. It is a new, or fresh idea and not a redo of the past. It is a positive mental image of what you want to manifest. For example, “I am easily and joyfully maintaining a my ideal body weight” versus “I am not overweight.”

Are intentions and affirmations the same? Can you feel a difference between “My intention is to joyfully drive to work” and “I am joyfully driving to work”?

 Definitions of Intention and Affirmation

According to Wikipedia, 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 planning and forethought.

An affirmation is a declaration that something is true. For an affirmation to be effective, it needs to be present tense, positive, personal and specific.

Although this definition says intentions relate to the future, I experience intentions as being both in the present and the future. Like walking down the path while seeing myself on the same path in front of me. Affirmations are definitely in the present tense.

Examples of Intentions and Affirmations


My intention is to be naturally joyful and positive

My intention is to gracefully experience loving friends


I am naturally joyful and positive

I am gracefully experiencing loving friends

Intentions versus Affirmations

Can you see the similarities and difference between affirmations and intentions? In many ways, they are different sides of the same coin. They both are stated in the positive, are personal and specific, and both represent what you want to experience.


Showing gratitude is an important step in fulfilling your intentions.

The key is to BELIEVE your intention has already come true, and know that everything is working for your best good.

Some intentions will happen quickly, others will take longer but the key here is that you are on a journey...not in a race.​

In a nutshell:

  • Positive affirmations create internal alignment and strength
  • ​Positive intent helps create external manifestations.

The more aligned you are with your true self, the more aligned you are with all of consciousness and the greater ability you will have to co-create your life and experiences.
