I agree this is a good thing to strive for, but from my perspective, 
the "intent" needs to come from the emotional, rather than 
intellectual side of the brain.  This means training yourself well 
enough to be able to "intend something" thinking about the "what" and 
not the "how".  For my money, that's what practice (be it pitch 
practice or scale practice or whatever) is all about.
