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


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

When you want to reach a goal but are unsure of the route to take, use your Powers of Intent, I AM, and 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 companion, you want a partner who meshes harmoniously with your personality, so define the personal qualities you desire in a relationship without being too specific. As you can see by the wording of this intention statement, there are 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 who has the qualities most important to you.


  • 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 with your current job, you are creating a limiting statement regarding where the money can come from. Keep your intention statements open to all incoming-earning possibilities.

This last example is one of my favorite ways to phrase an intention because it uses wording that invites new ideas into your life, things you may not have thought of to achieve your goal:

  • I want to be more self-confident.

  • 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 we cannot see, 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!
