Living your most beautiful, creative, and authentic life involves taking leaps of faith.

What is a true “leap of faith?” For me, it’s letting the Universe know what you desire in your life by using your Power of Intent and Power of Prayer and following it up with your Power of Trust and Power of Surrender to let your goals play out in the way that is best for you in the long run.

Here’s the key though — you must truly engage your Power of Trust and Power of Surrender to manifest. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to be specific with your intention wording while using caution to keep the process for achieving your goal open.

When you want to reach a goal, but are unsure of the route to take, use your Power of Intent, Power of I AM, and Power of Wording to take that goal and craft an intention statement. Examples:

  • No: I want a girlfriend/boyfriend.

  • Yes: I AM in a committed, loving relationship with a wonderful person who makes me laugh and is positive, loyal, and fun to be with.

In this example, you don’t just want a girlfriend/boyfriend, you want a partner who meshes with your personality harmoniously, so define the personal qualities you want in a relationship without being too specific. As you can see by this intention statement, there were no specifics placed on age, race, religion, income, education, or appearance — which opens the door wider and increases your chances of finding a loving partner.

  • No: I want to earn $500 more per month at my current job.

  • Yes: I AM earning $500 more per month.

In this example, by intenting only to earn extra money at your current job, you are limiting where the money can come from and tying the Universe’s hands. Keep your intention statements open to all possibilities. This last example is one of my favorite ways to phrase an intention because you are including wording that invites new ideas into your life, things you may not have thought of to achieve your goal:

  • No: I want to be more self-confident.

  • Yes: I AM learning confidence in my life because the Universe is providing me with situations and suggestions that will help build my confidence.

Your intention needs to state your ideal end result — your goal, what you want to manifest. The Universe has the bigger picture and can see all angles, so don’t limit yourself by stating how the outcome should happen, only state your final objective.

Keep using your POWERS to create your beautiful life! — Much love, Amara
