I just finished listening to an audio program by Wayne Dyer called The Power of Intention, which is based on his best selling book. This is a very interesting audio program which talks about a topic which I have developed an interest on lately. Wayne Dyer has been an authority in this area for quite sometime, but to me he was a late discovery.
I got introduced to this topic via Steve Pavlina's blog. Steve called it Intention-manifestation. I have to tell you honestly my earlier dabbling's with this topic has been disappointing, which led me to be very skeptical about this topic.
But after coming across a new video called The Secret, my interest in this topic grew again and my recent dabbling's have been quite revealing! In this program they call it The Law of Attraction. The concept is to attract what you want to your life. This process has what you need to do to attract / how to attract and being ready to receive.
Wayne Dyer proposes twelve rules for realizing the power of intention in his The Power of Intention book. Here are those twelve golden rules. I will just list them.
- Want more for others than you want for yourself -This is selflessness.
- Think from the end - Think about the results.
- Be an appreciator - Look for what is valuable, not worthless.
- Stay in rapport with source energy - be in a state of harmony with your source. Always think is this how my source thinks?
- Resistance - every thought you have that is other than that which you emanated from is resistance.
- Contemplate your self with the conditions that you want in your life.
- Understand the art of allowing - take the path of least resistance.
- Practice radical humility.
- Be in a constant state of gratitude - this is a great way to weed out the negative thoughts from your mind.
- Don't condemn the problems
- Play the match game - Am I matched up with the field of intention?
- Meditate - take control over your mind.
This list is an exhaustive list of things that you can follow to make the power of intention work for you. I found this list basically talks more or less about the same things that the other authors in this topic area also talk about. The difference is each author has one or two additional things in the list. But invariably, you will find the same core things appearing in all lists.
