Summary -The Power Of Intention


Published on

It’s hard for me to call it a law. I never liked laws or rules.” Dr. Wayne Dyer, affectionately known as the “father of motivation” by his fans, sits back in his chair, props his bare feet up on the coffee table and shares his unique take on the Law of Attraction. His inviting smile, reassuring blue eyes and relaxed demeanor reflect the warm and loving energy he speaks of so frequently to others.

Dyer has another term for the concept behind the Law of Attraction. He calls it the Power of Intention. His philosophy is pure and simple, “The law of attraction is this: You don’t attract what you want. You attract what you are.”

“Most people’s mistake in trying to apply the law of attraction is they want things; they demand things. But God doesn’t work that way,” continues Dyer. “It’s all about allowing.”

Dyer refers to the Tao Te Ching, written by Lao Tzu. “He says in there, 2,500 years ago, if you live from these virtues, then all that you could ever need or want could be provided for you.” Dyer excitedly retrieves his personal copy of the book, leans forward and reads the words that touch him so deeply. He explains how virtue is a very important concept in the Law of Attraction.

Summary -The Power Of Intention

  1. 1. Some Impressionistic takes from the book Dr.Wayne W.Dyer The Power of Intention by Ramki
  2. 2. About Dr.Wayne Four of his books, including Manifest your destiny, Wisdom of ages, There’s as Spiritual Solution to every problem and New York times bestseller 10 secrets of success & inner peace, were featured as National Public Television specials; and this, The Power of Intention, has been showcased there as well. Dyer holds a doctorate in educational counseling from Wayne State University & was an associate professor at St.John’s University in New York. Wayne W.Dyer, Ph.D., is an internationally renowned author & speaker in the field of self- development. He’s the author of 28 books, has created many audio, Cds and videos; and has appeared on thousands of television & radio programs.
  3. 3. After years of spiritual study and reflection, inspirational speaker and bestselling author Wayne Dyer has emerged a highly esteemed teacher. His current message about tapping into the power of intention may sound like good old positive thinking: just stay focused on what you want, rather than focusing on the lack of having what you want. But the teaching here goes deeper than just controlling thoughts (although he does acknowledge that thought control is a surprisingly challenging and significant endeavour). This book might help readers land a better job, but it's more relevant for those who are ready to detach from an ego-driven life filled with quick fixes of happiness and step into a more authentic, joyful, and spiritually fulfilling life. His core teachings speak to tapping into a universal source of energy that can also be called the "power of intention." He calls people who are consciously co-creating with this energy source "connectors" and describes them as "individuals who have made themselves available for success... They don't say "With my luck things won't work out." Instead, you’re more likely to hear something like, "I intend to create this and I know it will work out." Connectors are also committed to Dyer's "seven faces of intention“ Creativity, Kindness, Love, Beauty, Expansion, Abundance & Receptivity, which he speaks to throughout the book. Each chapter concludes with five suggestions for becoming stronger connectors, such as how to monitor one's inner speech or shift out of low-energy beliefs. Some criticize Dyer for not giving credit to other teachers who offer this same message, especially Jerry and Esther Hicks (A New Beginning I) and even Ralph Waldo Emerson. It's impossible to know whether this was a deliberate omission, but it is obvious that Dyer has tapped into a growing conversation about co-creating with "source.“ Happy reading Prelude
  4. 4. 1 The Essentials of Intention
  5. 5.  Whenever feeling any type of “low energy”, visualize the trolley strap hanging down from the field of intention 3 feet above your head. Imagine floating up and allowing the trolley strap to carry you to your built-in intention.  Say “intention” or “intent” when you are in a state of anxiety.  Say to yourself “I’m here on purpose; I can accomplish anything I desire”.  Act as if anything you desire is already here. New Perspective
  6. 6.  Visualize the power of intention  Be like a mirror, don’t grab onto things or people, and don’t judge either- Be reflective  Expect beauty.  Meditate on appreciation of the life force in you.  Banish doubt. Don’t doubt your ability to create the life you intended.
  7. 7. Connecting to Intention  To realize your desires, match them with your inner speech. Your inner speech mirrors your imagination. Your imagination is linked to spirit.  Think from the end. Feel everything as you already have it.  Practice unbending intent.  Memorize the seven faces of intention.  Always keep the thought of Gods abundance in mind.
  8. 8. Obstacles Connecting to Intention  Monitor your inner dialog. Stop the what is missing crap. Instead change your inner dialog and thinking to I intend to attract….  Reject thoughts that don’t allow you to match up to intention. Lighten moments of doubt and depression..  Be aware of low energy, and resolve to bring high energy. –(Thoughts)  Talk to your ego; tell it has no control over you today.  View obstacles as a way to stay connected to intention.
  9. 9.  Be aware of low energy, and resolve to bring high energy. –(Thoughts)  Talk to your ego; tell it has no control over you today.  View obstacles as a way to stay connected to intention. Your Impact on others when Connected to Intention  Become aware of the importance of making all of your relationships divine. Want for other people what you want for yourself, and let them know it.  When a question of morality arises concerning how you should act towards others, simply ask yourself, what would the Messiah do?  Keep track of the judgments you direct toward yourself and others. Only send out thoughts of compassion, helping you manifest your own individual intention. IT’S THE LAW OF ATTRACTION.  Whenever others want, want it for them so strongly that you disperse this energy outward and act from this level of spiritual consciousness.  By simply thinking and feeling in harmony with the power of intention, you cancel out the negativity of a minimum of 90,000 people if not millions.
  10. 10. Intention & Infinity  Say, “I’m no longer identified by this body/mind, and I reject this label from this moment on. I’m infinite. I’m one with all of humanity. I’m one with my source, and this is how I choose to view myself from this day forward.  I will exist for all eternity. Just as love is eternal, so is this my true nature. I’ll never be afraid (a WUSSY) again, because I am forever. This aligns you to the active side of infinity.  You are an infinite spiritual being having a temporary human experience = LOVE You are not a human having occasional spiritual experiences = FEAR  Whenever feeling lower depressing/anxious/fearfull energies, stop for a moment and think if it makes sense from the perspective of the active side of infinity.  Take a few moments to reflect on the people you were close to and loved who have crossed over, be aware of their presence.

The negative thoughts keep you from manifesting your desires.  You can change your thoughts of stress in any given moment, and eliminate the anxiety for the next few moments, or even hours or days.  Monitor your stressful thoughts by checking on your emotional state right in the moment. “Do I feel good right now?” If no, then say, “I want to feel good.” Then, “I intend to feel good.”  Make a conscious choice to select a thought that will activate good feelings.  Spend time observing babies and vow to emulate their joy.  Keep rule #6 in mind, “Don’t take yourself too seriously.”  Accept the guidance of your source of Intention.  Practice being in silence and meditation.  Stay in a state of gratitude and awe.
