Depending on your statement and what sounds good to you, you can write “I intend” or “I am.”  These two ways of writing intentions are closely related, but the emotion each method evokes is different.

An “I intend” type of statement is future-oriented. Rather than an “I am” statement which is written in the present tense. Choose what works best for you.

How to Write Intention Statements for Manifestation

1. Write your statement clearly

Write your statement as clearly as possible, being both accurate and direct. Don’t hold back or be hesitant to declare what you truly want and intend to create in your life.

For powerful intention manifestation, you must be sure about what you want. You must be precise. That’s the first thing to know.

If you need more time to define what exactly you want, then take that time. Do some journaling around the subject, think it over deeply for a few days, and maybe even create a vision board to gain clarity. The best way to set intentions that work is to be crystal clear when crafting your statement.

2. Write with positive language

Only write intention statements with affirmative, positive language. Meaning, never write what you don’t want. Being mindful of the words you use to craft intention statements is important since words are such a powerful tool. Avoid using words such as:

  • Don’t
  • Can’t
  • But
  • Only
  • Not
  • Try

These words are counterproductive and may affect your subconscious mind in a negative way. They focus on what you do not want to manifest or feel unable to manifest.

Crafting a statement around less stress at work, for example, works much better when you write it without the words “less stress.” Instead, use positive and affirmative language such as “more peacefulness.” 

Language that reflects “positive expectation” in your wording is crucial. For the Law of Attraction to work, you must anticipate your declaration to come true or be true. Write positive intentions only to manifest your desired outcome.

3. Infuse your words with positive emotion

When writing intention statements, describe the positive emotions you desire to manifest whenever you can. Try using strong adjectives like “joyful” “exciting” “hilarious” and so on.

Positive emotions help you set powerful intentions and are the key to manifesting effectively. That is why you need to use language that reflects emotions accurately. If you are looking for a word with a little extra “oomph” try using an online thesaurus.

To leverage the Law of Attraction, feel the joy and good feeling of what you are manifesting. I know that can feel strange when you haven’t manifested the thing you want yet. But, like attracts like. So, with a strong intention, align your emotions to feel as if you already have the thing you want. Then, the only thing between you and your desire is time.

Additionally, feel gratitude for what is already in your life. Especially things related to what you are manifesting. For example, if you intend to manifest love, then focus on the feeling of gratitude for the love already in your life. Or for the opportunity to meet someone interesting. Be glad you’re not in an unhappy relationship and feel that gratitude for the very real opportunity of finding love. Gratitude is a good daily practice as well.

Word it so that you believe it

To set powerful clear intentions, word your statements in a way your brain can accept. Write them so that they feel achievable and/or manifestable.

You probably know it’s unlikely you will manifest winning a million dollars, so writing an intention statement to win a million dollars will probably feel unbelievable to you and ultimately bring up negative emotions like hopelessness. Therefore, the statement lacks power and brings negative energy, because in the back of your mind, you doubt its truth.

But if you are changing jobs, you could set a specific intention to earn a certain amount of money. You could manifest that amount through the boundaries you set with your intention- namely that you only accept a certain amount or higher of pay within reason (or perhaps beyond reason) for your line of work. Your intention statement then empowers your goal setting, actions, and manifesting efforts.

End with gratitude

We talked about gratitude a moment ago, and we will mention it again. A powerful way to end your intention statement is with gratitude. A simple “Thank you Universe” is all you need.

Acknowledge the act of setting your intentions and declaring your desires. It’s done for now- my desires are stated. 

Having gratitude for the ability to manifest your desires is a form of positive expectation and that alone can bring positive results. This is trust in yourself as an infinite being and trust in the Universe of which you are an extension.

Trust in your capabilities, your actions, your energetic alignment, and the Universal magic that ties it all together so that you can manifest what you want at the perfect time.

Intention Statements vs Affirmations

You might wonder if intention statements are the same as affirmations. The two are both closely related and can help you manifest, but their approaches are slightly different.

Affirmations use present tense language. They are written or said as if already true, while intention statements are usually stated in the future tense. Because intention statements are about defining what you want similarly to writing down goals, they can feel more practical. It may be easier for the brain to accept the power of intentions.

6 More Intention Statement Ideas

You can set powerful intentions by writing clear statements and leaving them at that. But if you feel so inclined, for a little “something extra” try these tips to power up your intention statements even more.

1. Use the moon and stars

Plan out your intention manifestation writing to coincide with a new moon, full moon, or eclipse. Write intentions on a solstice. Or according to another astronomical event or astrological event.

2. Use weather events

Write amid powerful weather such as the perfect sunny day, an exciting windy day, or beautiful snowfall. This is an awesome way to manifest naturally.

3. Employ crystals

Surround yourself with crystals or create a crystal grid for powerful manifesting while writing. Crystals help amplify the energy of your intentions while writing.

4. Work with other people

Writing or speaking intention manifestation statements in a group of people has been scientifically proven to influence changes in the environment. This has been noted in group meditation and group prayer. Even a small writing group of two to three people can empower written intentions.

5. Go to a special location

This is my favorite trick for writing intention manifestation statements that work.

Try writing intention statements in magical high-vibration places. Wide-open spaces such as the top of a hill, the beach, or even the top level of a parking garage! This is an exciting way to add extra energy to your intention statements.

The action of going out of your way to go to a place with lots of actual physical space for the energy to move around in your aura field and above you is powerful.

6. Use on special days of the year

You could also make your statements at the start of the new year, (1/1) on November 11th, (11/11) or another special day of the year. Both 111 and 1111 are highly lucky numbers!
