To Be honest, I've been trying to use The Power of Intention
To be honest, I've been trying to use the Power of Intention for a while. But to be honest, I don't think I've gotten very noticeable results from what I've been trying to manifest. Looking back on my life, I can see that what I've been thinking has manifested in my life. That is the unforunately the truth since I am not very happy with where I am at at present (jobless, shy, few friends, unmarried), at 40.
But I've been trying to manifest something. And it's hard for me to continually think in a positive manner for a prolonged period of time. Maybe that's why I haven't manifested it yet. It's hard for me to continuously think in a certain manner for say longer than an hour or more. Is it hard for you? And then I go back into the negative thinking again.
For those of you who have manifested things with The Power of Intention, how long do you think positively and how long do you contemplate yourself as surrounded by the circumstances you wish to manifest? Do you think it for the whole day and have it in the back of your mind what you'd like to manifest? or do you do this for only an hour at a time? or do you do this for every minute as long as you're awake?
I'm so frustrated with this.
Please tell me your experiences.
I'm certainly not an expert, but I will give you some suggestions. Look how you described yourself. jobless, shy, few friends, unmarried) if this is how you describe yourself, these are your thoughts and what you bring into your life. If I may make a suggestion, find something to do (anything) that will help someone else. Volunteer until you get a paying way to help others. If you get a job in any service area or store, you will be helping others. You also will be meeting people and feeling better about earning some money. Dr. Dyer might say that what you want for others, will come to you. Recognize that part of all of our purposes in this life is to help and serve others. Get out and do something that will bring joy to others, and you will bring joy to yourself. You will awaken every day with a purpose, and will feel much better about yourself. Then watch what happens.
Try the following website,
Avatar is a powerful and speedily effective course based on the simple truth that your beliefs will cause you to create or attract situations and events that you experience as your life.
The goal of the three-section course is to guide you in an exploration of your own belief system and to equip you with the tools to modify those things that you wish to change. THE AVATAR course opens a window to the inner workings of your own consciousness.
The course teaches world lessons (experiential) rather than word lessons (intellectual). For this reason it requires a trained AVATAR MASTER to guide you into the actual lessons already contained in your own consciousness.
Hi, does anyone have any suggestions about the question I asked about The Power of Intention? BTW, thanks for those who responded to my mail. Also, does anyone know about the Power of Intention?
I would be careful of Avatar. Much of Avatar is based off of L Ron. Hubbard's Scientology. It is founded by an ex-member who seems to have many of the same intentions as Hubbard, brainwashing, mindcontrol, etc.
I'd be careful.
Just a suggestion
I would suggest you take a look at the factors in your life that pull you down. And see if you can begin to eliminate them. At the same time I find it very very helpful to collect music that lifts my spirit and causes me to focus on the divine. It is through the spirit that one gains his sense of purpose and belonging that is what changed my core opinion of myself, it was my discovery of where I fit into the whole and what I am here to do or be. I wont go into specifics as this is different for eveyone. But music seems to speak to deep in me and to change the way I feel faster than anything else. These are my thoughts and I hope you find them helpful.
All of you have sound replies related to your experience. JKYGOGO..thanks for bringing this up. I myself have actually been quite successful in manifesting closeness with God, being able to manifest better intuition/psychic abilities and also in my job as a TV/film writer/director...but that's where the buck stops...I recently purchased a Wayne Dyer "Meditations in Manifesting" CD for the heck of it. After all Dr Dyer says in the CD that doing the sidhi consciousness meditations will get rid of the time lag in which you are able to manifest...So out of this desire to see this one desire 'apparate' I tried "Ah-ing" and "Ohm-ing" and it has already been a week! HELLO! I'm still wondering what I did 'wrong' in those meditations! lol Sheesh! roll
Throughout the meditation, I had an out-of-body experience though where I recognized my soul and had no doubts about my desires. In fact, when I take my mind out of the equation, I am pretty sure what's going to manifest. In my heart, at least it seems true but this week, when I followed up on this one particular desire, I wasn't able to manifest it the way I had hoped (or even known in my heart).
So what's the deal Dr Dyer? I hope you're not duping us here with the sidhi consciousness meditations because I trust you, man! D So if anyone can help the other troopers here, that would sure help!
First , Jelly FArm , I really love the way you express yourself!
About the word "trying". I told my therapist that I am trying to let go of past anger etc. She said okay try to get out of the chair. Let me see you trying... It turns out, you can't see someone trying to try, you are either sitting or not, in the process of rising up and then standing.
To quote Master Yoda, "There is no try, only do."
Perhaps it is when we are trying that we lose focus. We might do better by just doing-
I manifested closer relationships with family and friends by visiting & calling people, and really being genuinely interested in their lives, rather than always looking to talk about mine.
I manifested a healthy loving relationship with my man by first having one with myself.
Back to trying vs. rising up, Wayne Dyer tells a story about how he visualizes himself grabbbing onto a subway strap and being lifted above problems. I use the analogy of tinker bell, fairy dust and so on because I love Peter Pan...Helps me connect.
And on turning 40- That's a big birthday. I don't know anyone who hasn't sat down at forty and looked with a critical eye at where they are. The trick is to look for the good- unmarried also can mean- comfortable with self, shy can also mean -attentive listener, jobless definitely means that you are open to endless possibilities and abundance, I forget what else you wrote.
When you start looking for things to be grateful for the depression lifts. even just I am grateful I get another day to change my world by changing my thinking, by appreciating all of nature, all the miraculous technology and people and music and on and on.
Yes, I'm a bit of a Pollyanna, but I swear to you that staying grateful is the way I always find back to God-source.
First Jelly let me say that I love the pic attached to your profile
I have read the POW and have bee reading similar books for a number of years. The message has had an impact in my life or at least how I perceive the message. I agree with many of with manifesting within ourselves .
We are all seeking happiness, joy and peace however we keep chasing the dragon. Always trying to get stuff from the external…be it material emotional or otherwise.
I have learned that if I explore my internal universe (and man is it vast) that I discover the source (that of which I call God) resides there.
As Dyer says “There is no way to happiness…Happiness is the way”
I also think if I am feeling like crap (does not happen very often anymore) and am struggling to get back to my center. There are a couple of techniques I use
1. I come to the realization that the answer is within me
2. Love myself unconditionally for being depressed, unhappy and all the other stuff. There is only one good (God) and when true love is present it manifests more of the same. Almost like when I turn on the light in a dark room. The dark and all the things that go bump in the night…melt like butter.
3. If this seems impossible, that’s OK, possibly even great because the moment becomes an opportunity for growth. I stay in the moment and allow myself to feel where I am at, I acknowledge that part of me and again love that part of my being. Once I have identified that of which I do not desire... I remember a specific time in life…a moment in life that I was blissfully happy. I hang on to that feeling just for a micro second…in the now. I do this again until the microsecond becomes a second and then becomes a moment then this becomes part of you’re my reality and I am aligned with my source and I realize that at that moment that the source is all abundant, I have all I can possibly need and still it comes.
All the best
"Intent is not a thought, an object or a wish. Intent is what can make a man succeed when his thoughts tell him that he is defeated. It operates in spite of the warrior's indulgence. Intent is what makes him invulnerable. Intent is what sends a shaman through a wall, through space, to infinity......."
FWIW...in my life; intention has had to become as natural a part of my life as breathing. It is, as Wayne alludes to, like imagining that Handle above our heads that we can grasp....it's *always* there for us to take hold of and use. It's an "energy" to become a part of; not to "wish" into existance. FLOW into it from a true understanding and desire for it to affect your life.....
I admire Dr. Dyer taking on this subject ~ it is one difficult to convey through words..................
? Hi Jim,
Are things still the same?.I like most of dyers messages,but they seem like lofty ideals..but I know when you focus your thoughts on helping others your life will improve. You are your thoughts. God has his own timing and works through us. Be patient
Thanks Celia and Life! It's been awhile since I last posted here but life got me caught up in it's delicate web of experiences plus I had some jelly that probably didn't go down so well in my tummy last night. Hmmmmm.... wink
I agree wholeheartedly with the both of you that it really is within me. There are these things called experiences that allow you to make powerful choices in your life. They show you what you are and vice versa. So being a person who's grasping this concept slowly but surely (baby steps first people! D ) it's kinda clashing with Wayne's sidhi consciousness meditations which he says that you don't have to do 'all the work' now but that once the channel of creation is open for business..(ha!) there's no need to make so much active decisions in one's life. OK, OK, OK, OK, OK...I guess I'm lazy to keep making active decisions in my life. All my life, I've been the repsonsible one, the filial daughter, the loyal friend you can count on. I'm tired of the responsibilities and expectations being thrown on my shoulders...Just wanna let the Universe and it's creative forces start doing the work for me, I guess. Wait a minute! Wasn't that concept called surrender??! shock idea Oh yeaaaaaaahhh!
Huggie Diapers and Smooches!
