Power of Intent (review)

1992 - 1999 021

Have you ever considered what your intention is in life?

We have heard it put in terms of goals, purpose and perhaps vision.

I have just read a powerful book called “The Power of Intent.” by Wayne Dyer.

Wayne is an inspirational man, who wrote many books in his lifetime and was a top speaker and specialist in the Personal Development field.

Many motivational and personal development specialists, coaches and leaders, encourage you to find your goal or vision, then give you a set of steps to follow, which can be quite constricting or even stressful.Untitled-1 You can find yourself “doing” more and more and wondering where you are going wrong because you seem to be getting nowhere.

Even finding your purpose or goals can be quite an arduous task. While there are some very good and very expensive programmes on Brain Training, Law of Attraction and How to attract abundance into your life, reading this book could be the answer you are looking for.

Wayne takes the pressure out of it all and helps you to see how much your ego can be standing in your way.

He says that EGO is another way of Edging God Out.

When we have lost touch with the inner fire and desire we first wanted because it is all taking so long, it can be soul destroying and we often give up.

In his preface, Wayne states (about the book) “You’re holding in your hand, evidence that anything we can conceive of in our minds – while staying in harmony with the universal all-creating Source – can and must come to pass.”

He gives you the seven faces of intention, which are Creativity, Kindness, Love, Beauty, Expansion, Unlimited Abundance and Receptivity. Breaking them down and explaining the meaning of each of them.IMG_0137

That is just for starters.

This is an exciting, spiritual adventure and opens your eyes to the importance of knowing your intention, and how to create it, not by magic or striving, but by looking at what we believe about ourselves and the source within us.

He goes on to say;

“Intention is something that I believe we can feel, connect with, know and trust. It’s an inner awareness that we explicitly feel, and yet at the same time cannot truly describe with words. I use this concept to help guide me toward the power of intention that’s the source of creation and activate it in my daily life. It’s my hope that you too will begin to recognise what you personally need to do to begin activating intention in your life.”

I have been on a journey now for four years, studying and reading various courses and following teachers. I have built up an understanding of the Law of Attraction. Starting out with The Secret, which is a basic idea, I learnt that there is a lot more to it than just sitting and attracting stuff.

I have also learnt that it is not just about hard work either. It is all about trusting and doing it with ease. I don’t mean the easy way, but “with ease”. If you are doing in life what you enjoy and intend, then you enjoy every moment of what you are creating, and doing it with ease and enjoyment. This way, you are “being” and not “doing”.

The first and most important thing is to find your “Intention”.

In other words, what is it in life that you are passionate about and just “know” that you want to share with the world. What is it that sets you on fire?

Wayne presents intention in this book as an invisible energy field that is inherent in all physical form, is part of the inexplicable, nonmaterial world of Spirit. In other words, all the learning, brain training, courses and struggling in the world will not make any difference if we are just focusing on what we are going to get out of it. We need to be in the flow and trust our intention, be aware of synchronicity and be open to receive.

Wayne himself spent a lifetime, right from a child, knowing what his intention was. He studied many teachers, and philosophers, and he has done all the work and reading for you. His books are based on what he himself found out, and experienced, and has passed his knowledge and inspiration onto us.

I heartily recommend this book if you are struggling with anything to do with your purpose in life. Whether it is the business that is not taking off, your health, relationships, finances or losing weight.

Get your intention sorted out and the rest will fall into place.
