The Kavana:[1]

When counting Sefira one is to have in mind the Sefira of that night, one word of the Ana Bechoach, and one word of the psalm Mizmor Elokim Yechoneinu, and one letter from the verse Yismachu. [It is unclear if these intents are to be held while counting the Sefira, before one counts, or after the count, while reciting the Mizmor.[2]]


[1] Siddur Admur

[2] Mishnas Chassidim Haomer 8:2 writes these intents are to be held while saying the Mizmor; See Siddur of Rav Raskin footnote 11
