What is an Intention?

At the very basic level, an intention is like sending out a wish or desire to the Universe. When you set an intention, it is done with an inner knowing that it will manifest when you are ready and open to receive. It’s critical that you trust the process — you must trust what you desire will come to fruition.

Read this blog post to learn more about intention setting, plus examples.

What about Manifestation?

Intention setting plays a pivotal role in manifestation. The entire concept of manifestation is beyond what we’re talking about here. So, let’s go with a simplified version…

Manifestation is taking a thought, dream, or idea and creating a material result. For example, you had an idea that you wanted to write a book. When that book comes to life, it results from intentions leading you to manifest the dream into reality. In other words, intentions bridge the gap between thought and manifesting your desires.

Using this Intention Setting Printable Tool

The printable workbook includes directions to help you get the most out of it. The best feature is the ability to streamline your process by using the templates provided. There are five templates included: Daily, Monthly, Quarterly, and Yearly intentions, plus a 6-mo Check-in.

As you think through the intentions, it’s helpful to consider the following categories of life:

  • Health & fitness
  • Career, work, or school
  • Family & community
  • Spirituality & personal growth
  • Environment
  • Fun
  • Love
  • Finances

You might recognize these categories as commonly included in the Wheel of Life. If so, you’d be correct! In the printable intention setting template, you’ll find a copy of this to fill in. If you are using the Notion template, you’ll find a printable and digital Wheel of Life. Plus, you can use the pre-built database to track your progress.

Pro-tip: When using a printed copy of the Wheel of Life, write the date on it and add a calendar event to complete it again in 3-, 6-, 9-, and 12-months from now. This will give a (mostly) objective view of your life’s progress and change over the past year. To make your life easier, save a link to this blog post in your calendar so you don’t have to look for it each time.

Level-up Your Follow-up Game
