Book Reviews of "The Power of Intention"

Hi Everyone, )

So, I've only had Wayne's newest book about a month, and I think it's his best ever. As I read it, I got the feeling that it carried on themes from his past books, such as whatever you think about expands and ideas from how to be a no-limit person.

The CD Version is almost as good as seeing Wayne live
cover
The Secrets of the Power of Intention

I thought his quote about how "Friends are a Gods way of apologizing for your relatives" was humorous.

What did you think of his newest book?

Hi,

Thanks for the email and inviting me to your forum. I haven't read the book yet, but I will. I did see the PBS special on his new book, several times I may add. So much of what he said reminded me of Abraham-Hicks's material. I realize that a lot of today's teachers are basically finding different ways of bringing across a similar message, but I was wondering if Wayne had been influenced by them at all during the special. Does he ever mention Abraham in his books?

For more info on these teachers, visit www.abraham-hicks.com

I'm looking forward to this discussion.

I have the Power of Intention and I started to read it, but then I bought There is a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem and now I am reading that. I will get back to the new book in a few weeks. I wan't connecting with it yet. That sometimes happens to me - like I am not yet ready. I have most of Dr. Dyer's books and I have to keep reading them, almost like bibles, to keep on top of myself or I seem to lose my way - I forget. Manifest your Destiny is the book that had a profound impact on my life. That book is the reason I have a daughter.

I'm really glad you put up this forum - thanks for the invitation. I wouldn't know about me if Dr. Dyer hadn't pointed out the path.

I am in the process of reviewing Dr. Dyers new book. This is my first introduction to his teachings. I first heard him on a PBS program, and was inspired by his teachings. I am really grateful that he is teaching people about getting connected with the creator! Such wisdom in that! For all things (especially wisdom) comes from the creator!

I especially liked his quote that states
"Trees bend low with ripened fruit,
Clouds hang down with gentle rain,
Noble men bow graciously,
This is the way of generous things."

Thank you Mr. Dyer for sharing the enlightenment that God has gifted you with!

I've gotten about half way through Power of Intention and find the concepts very appealing. One of my concerns, however, is how all this meshes with my church. I'm an Episcopalian and love the rituals and language that seems to connect me to believers across the ages. It's not that God doesn't exist outside of the church or the ritual, it's a forum, if you will, whereby people can get together and acknowledge and praise God's power. The message is always one of love and acceptance.

Anyone with a comment on this subject?

I was touched by your question. I actually had just come to this sight out of curiosity, read your message and it inspired me to "Sign-Up".
I too am a Christian and find that almost everything Dr. Dyer presents are Christain principles... Love, beauty, caring (for self and others), trusting God (Source), etc.
It's almost like a presentation of Christ's teaching in a format that secularists (probaly 80% of PBS watchers... Ha) can buy into. By quoting spiritual leaders from accross the board as well as Castinata, Course in Miracles, etc. I can't see how it would offend anyone. Consequently, more people can gain from this wisdom.
In my mind I think of "Source" as God, Christ and equate the Holy Spirit within me, as the source I connect with in my personal meditation.
I purchsed the book on CD, so am able to listen to it over and over, getting something different each time. I've also been meditating with the help of his book, "Getting in the Gap"... which I find is a very natural process after years of practicing deep meditative-like prayer. As you read the book, continue to think of Christ's teachings and you'll be amazed at the similiarity.
I hope this helps.

I think Dyer is not tied exclusively to any one religion. When I read his works, I think he speaks in universal truths that are not specific to any one religion.

How does everyone else feel?

berlin

03-05-2004 20:04:25

I agree with you, Chris. I see references to many religions in Wayne's books, including Buddhism, as well as secular sources(psychology in particular) and appeals to common sense. That's another aspect of Wayne's work that I like. )

Indeed, The Power of Intention does not favor a particular religeon, my thoughts were kind of from the other end... does my religeon work with the concepts of the book. So far it seems so. Certainly it seems to put some of the teachings of Jesus into a different light and context, and more logical. My Source has a name.

I'm also reading Conversations With God. Has anyone else read this series? It seems as though the basic concept is in the same vein, but giving the Source a more traditional guise. Any comments?

berlin

09-05-2004 10:57:27

Regarding Conversations with God....yes, I read the first book of that series years ago (I almost missed a plane reading that book, lol) and found it to be mind-opening! Are you having lots of moments while reading it where you have to look away from the page, process what you just read and think, "I have never even thought about it that way before!"?

Which one of the series are you reading? If you decide to read past book 1, let me know what you think...I might pick more of them up myself.

Nice to meet you! )

Jenny - this is from your post "it's a forum, if you will, whereby people can get together and acknowledge and praise God's power. The message is always one of love and acceptance." This is that forum that you describe - this is a place where people get together and acknowledge the power of God. This indeed is such a place where love and acceptance are the norm. You have truly found what you have sought.

Chris wrote "I think Dyer is not tied exclusively to any one religion. When I read his works, I think he speaks in universal truths that are not specific to any one religion." The one thing that separate religion from what Dyer talks about is dogma - Wayne talks of a universal "christianity" that is present in our lives - should we be open to it. He is a student of A Course in Miracles and that is not a religion by any stretch of the imagination. He talks of a God within us - a God that loves us unconditionally - something that we find impossible at times to do ourselves. Do you love yourself with no conditions - no strings attached - do you love yourself as God loves you? Why are you thinking different from God? This is what Wayne talks about.

There were a few notes containing this book and while I have read all but the last two - or maybe three of this series - I found that while I got very excited in the beginning - my ego got excited - I realized afterwards that the God that Neale was portraying in the book was not the same God I believed in. My God loves me - loves us - unconditionally. My God does not condemn our actions and instruct me as to how this world should be. In Neale's books, I have always felt separated from God, rather feeling One with God as Dyer speaks of.

Just to clear up a point... the emphasis of my comment involves celebrating the concepts of our God/Source within the structure of organized religion, not that one is exclusive of the other.
I definetly would not confine God to any one people, religion, or any limiting context. On the other hand, I would not exclude participation in organized religion as being a method whereby many individuals can come together to praise and realign with God, the Source. This would seem to be true for all religions which preach the love, forgiveness, tolerance and giving. Furthermore, the gathering of many with like alignment with God can perform miracles of good for the community in which they live. This is not to say that one individual cannot have an impact on the world (that indeed can be very great), but there is some truth to 'two heads are better than one' ... or better said, more hands are better than two )

I've read many of Wayne Dyer's books and love Neale's "Friendship with God", a book I read over and over again.

There are as many ways to find one's true path to God as there are people. No wonder there are so many religions! Every connection is a deeply personal one, thus if you prefer the traditional connection through a unity of your church that is absolutely in line with the connection as described through Wayne Dyer or Neale Walsh. As for Neale's Conversations with God, well Neale's background does explain this. As a man who worked many years in the media he of course can bring his more thought-provoking background into his conversations with his Source. I myself find myself in discussion with my Source often and at times tend to think I'm talking to myself. But when deep insights are gained from these conversations, I realize that there is a deeper nature behind it. If we trust our feelings and our intuition in these cases, we know how to distinguish between our own thoughts and God-given insight.

I have a problem with organized religion, not because of what is taught, but because I feel confined to a specific way of believing. I too am Episcopalean, but find my true connection in deep meditation outside of the church.

Peace, blessings and love to all of you!!

Have you taken time out of your "busy life" to dwell on each one of the seven faces Wayne describes in this book? Take for example, the seventh face - the face of receptivity - Do you see yourself as being receptive to what is being shown to you based on the intentions you are holding? Do you agree that what you are experiencing, you have intended to experience? And how receptive are you to the thoughts of others around you? Do you judge them immediately, perhaps even put them down or argue your views with them? Is this being receptive?

Namaste - Ron

I'll start a new topic in the main forum where we can discuss and tear apart the faces of intention -- with an intention to learn something from the discussion. D

starchild

I think I've read all of Wayne's books, sometimes more than once.

I tend to take notes when I read, so it's slower going. I guess I think if I write down key points to remember, it will STICK better in my mind? )

Actually, I end up with boxes and notebooks of "notes" I don't usually look at again.

I also saw the PBS show, which I think has been on other years (or part of it) maybe before the book, which I know is new.

This year I videotaped the PBS show, and went over it after and audio taped all the parts (between the pledge breaks) In order to do this I ran a long cord from the AUDIO out on my VCR to another room into my computer and saved them as files and burned them on a cd.

Just for my own use so I can play them in bed at night. At the time I am manifesting a life with financial lack (challenges, or contrast or something) but I INTEND to change this!

So, I am now reading the book (a little at night) and writing down notes and a few night ago, got the idea of writing down affirmations from it, to put on pictures on my computer desktop. Again, for my own personal use, though I'm not sure a few words at a time (and I'm not selling anything) would be copyrighted. The first one I made to test is Remain true to the light which got my attention in what I was reading.

I've been working on screensavers, well learning about making them (there is little or not info available about this that I can find). Mainly the idea of making them with a small enough file not to be bulky and putting text on them so it looks good. My pictures seem to be so bright and beautiful (I live in Vermont which is scenic) in a way it seem to take away from the words. So, I'm experimenting with making the pictuers into backgrounds of sorts, so as not to detract from the words.

I've noticed that so often I'm in front of my computer and the DESKTOP is showing (or a screensaver comes on) this is places that would be good to have positive affirmations showing. Even to be seen in a subconscious way.

I don't know where this will lead, but at the time it's doing what I love (and feel interested in, learning graphics (Photoshop, etc) Maybe just the feeling productive and creative is, in itself a benefit.

I find myself outside taking hundreds of pictures (I love digital cameras!) just because it's an excuse to be outside in the sun and wildflowers and nature. Since I don't have my own car, I can't go anywhere and take pictures, so have to be creative where I am. A lesson in itself.

At the moment I don't have private webspace to link from (and not sure if I can from an Angelfire site- maybe for a limited time). I'd like to try putting one of the pictures up here. If that's okay, using words from Wayne's copyrighted book? Somehow I don't think he'd mind, but he has a publisher )

I don't want to do anything that someone might not feel is right to do on this board.

As a Sagittarius, I tend to jump in and do things without thinking a lot. Along with writing too much. I joke "I'm open, honest, outspoken and usually in trouble"

I see there's an image code tag (I'm not used to bbs coding) but it still might have to be uploaded first.

I'm also not sure which topic a picture and affirmation would fit in?

I guess I can try.

Hi Carrie and thanks for your post - this is what really caught my eye - my spiritual eye that is - "

As a Sagittarius, I tend to jump in and do things without thinking a lot. Along with writing too much. I joke "I'm open, honest, outspoken and usually in trouble"

What I read here could be a block to what you are trying to manifest - intend into your life. You are labeling yourself and several times. And you believe what you have been told about those labels. Forget thinking you are a Sagittarius, that you jump in without thiking (actually you can't do that) believing that you write too much (who says so) and if you joke about being open, honest, outspoken and in trouble (simply a perception) then I believe I hear you saying that you really fear those things - you fear being open and honest - and with yourself to begin with. You fear that who you are under the jokes will not be liked by others - first you like yourself and love yourself unconditionally, then others will do as they see you do. You fear you are outspoken, and yet you probably have a lot to tell other and are keeping in back from them as well as yourself. This could be seen as selfish - could be, but don't fret it. And seeing yourself usually in trouble - if this is all it is, then start seeing yourself in peace instead. How you see yourself is very important to you. How others see you matters not.

And if Wayne were here to help you pick a picture for your image, I believe he just might pick one of a child - a sweet child of God.

Namaste - Ron

Thanks for the feedback, Ron.

I meant it in more of a joking way.

Obviously that's not how it's coming across (LOL)

Nobody told me I was like that, I have come to conclusions about some of the signs, what I call "in a nutshell" versions.

LIke, for example Libra. I say "Libras want peace and harmony and will fight to the death to get it!"

My Sagittarius version is "open, honest, outspoken and usually in trouble".

Other Sagittarians (or ones who know/live with one) usually agree.

I saw Dr Wayne and Louise Hay in Brisbane this weekend on his "Power of Intention" tour. It was a terrific lecture and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
What took me by surprise was his humor which doesn't come across in his other audio stuff, probably because they are all recorded in studios.
I also bought his book and CD's for "Power of Intention" to add to my collection.
"Power of Intention" has to be the best I've read/heard so far. Like Chris says it wraps up alot of the concepts he's touched on in previous books. What I love is that he takes wisdom not from himself but from the saints and masters of old, from the bible, from everywhere.
Dr Wayne's teachings have opened myself up to other avenues such as the bible, poets, other teachers like Louise Hay, other books like Course In Miracles, Conversations with God. It's been a wonderful journey, just looking forward to tomorrow!!

God Bless

I think Dyer is not tied exclusively to any one religion. When I read his works, I think he speaks in universal truths that are not specific to any one religion.

How does everyone else feel?

I agree with you that he speaks in "universal truths". Assuming that there are other life forms out there similar to us earthlings, I hope they have achieved a universal 'practice', a living, of these truths, and are not so inundated with the amount of "self-help" material you find here. I've found that local bookstores around here have dropped the "self-help" section and replaced it with "health and wellness". Does the "self" really require help, ha-ha?

Many fundamentalists of all religions will be at odds with Wayne. One point of contention will be the "I am God" scenario Wayne mentions in Manifest Your Destiny. Christians will feel that this places them in direct contrast with the 'divinity' of Jesus. A 'divinity' that only Jesus was capable of manifesting - for ALL time. The 'I am God' scenario will be equated with Satan - who seeks to usurp the power of God, and claim it as his own. Christians are compelled to ignore this kind of instruction as so much sorcery. They see Wayne and Deepak Chopra, among others, as spiritual charlatans who are leading people astray into the world of "abstract forces", "fluctuations of energy, "energy and information in the field of all possibilites", denying them of a personal relationship with Jesus, who alone has the power to 'save'. Since I cant manifest so much as fingernail, who am I to say that "I am God"? - For me, I know that "I AM" - and that is sufficient.

"Assuming that there are other life forms out there similar to us earthlings, I hope they have achieved a universal 'practice', a living, of these truths, and are not so inundated with the amount of "self-help" material you find here."

Why assume other life, when this life is but your dream? Forget about wondering about "others" and how they are living their truths, but rather look inside and see how are you living your truth. Are you walking your talk?

"I've found that local bookstores around here have dropped the "self-help" section and replaced it with "health and wellness". Does the "self" really require help, ha-ha?"

I have found the term "self-help" to alert me to something that just might be of interest to me. Everything here is truly "self-help" for I cannot really help you in any way that I have not helped myself. I cannot extend Love to you, unless I first Love myself. "Health and wellness" is very correct - health and wellness of the mind.

"Since I cant manifest so much as fingernail, who am I to say that "I am God"? - For me, I know that "I AM" - and that is sufficient "

Perhaps you should again read "Manifest Your Destiny" to see what you manifest - the whole world and everything in it. How do you feel when you finally state "I AM God!"? How do you feel when you state "I AM"?

Thanks Michael for your great thoughts here.

This will, apparently, be a view of this book that is unpopular with those who have already posted.

IMO boring, laborious, nothing new to say.

The book was our Book Club (Mindful Living) assignment for September, and I'm very disappointed. I expected to learn something new - I didn't. As he approached each chapter, the writer excitedly asked us to open our minds - "good, I thought, things might get better." IMO, this never happened.

I felt the entire book was a lot of religious instruction - something I had more than my share of in Catholic school.

Ron

13-09-2004 12:22:32

Perhaps you were misled. Wayne asked YOU to open YOUR mind, he did not say he would do it for you. You are in control of your mind alone. IMO this book held, like all his books, no religious instructions. I believe you know when "things will get better" - right? When you see them that way. Not every book will have the key to what you think you may be looking for, but it could hold a key to something you do not want to know. I detect a "ho-hum" attitude in your post and perhaps you want to be enlighted by someone else, instead of realizing that the whole thing is up to you alone. Reading the book did show that you stuck with it, and it also shows that you fought it all the way through. Wayne never really tells us how to do something, but he does give us the ingredients to use as we see right. Perhaps you could go through the list of ingredients and see if you left something out? I think that perhaps the first suggestion that Wayne states in Chapter One might required some further thought. It is this "1. Whenever you feel out of sorts, lost, or even in a sour mood, visualize the trolley strap hanging down from the field of intention three to four feet above your head…This is a tool for implementing surrender in your life."

"I detect a "ho-hum" attitude in your post and perhaps you want to be enlighted by someone else, instead of realizing that the whole thing is up to you alone."

Ron, I certainly did not misunderstand the book at all. In fact, the concept is so universally held by organized religions that I didn't need to spend $18 to be told the same old stuff, once again. I'm a very self-reflective person, in touch with "the Source." I stay with my opinion of this book hogwash, same-old, same-old.

Ron

15-09-2004 08:59:38

Whenever I am aware that I am reading "same-old, same-old" thoughts, I pay particular attention because even though I have read them before, I am apparently once again in need of re-reading them again. As I read any book, I am aware that if the book is meant for me, I will continue reading it, if I feel like it is not for me, the book is closed. Many books I have said to myself that this is a just a re-hash of other "stuff" I have read. Then in the quiet times with myself, I learn again, that the message is there for a reason - I am not doing what I am to be doing - I am not practicing what I know in truth. Many people who read the Course complain at times that the Course just repeats the same message over and over - and it does in several different ways. Why? Because we don't usually get it the first time around - in fact, it takes many readings before the message sinks in, or so it appears. If you see "same-old, same-old" words before you - pause, and continue reading knowing that within those "same-old, same-old" is a message that you have missed before.

Hello one and all! Ron, thank you for your comments.

I certainly do not regard this book as "hogwash". I really enjoy reading Wayne's material and I find listening to his audio programs to be very stimulating. I prefer "Meditations For Manifesting" over "Getting In The Gap", "Manifest Your Destiny" over "There's A Spiritual Solution To Every Problem, but they're all valid. I'll probably purchase the audio of "The Power Of Intention" and condense it down to the parts that I find most inspiring. I've often gone for long walks alone with my "walkman" playing one of his recordings. Long deep diaphragmatic breathing to really focus on the "word". Since we're so often inundated with rather trivial information coming at us in form or another from the media, it's good to really listen and absorb his inspiring words. Deepak Chopra's "Creating Affluence" has also proved to be a favourite of mine.

It's sad for me to hear that Wayne's wife left him for another man, I know the feeling. I haven't had a relationship of duration as long as Wayne's, but I came to discover his material, primarily "Your Sacred Self", after my girlfriend of 6 years left me for another man, 10 years ago. It broke my heart alright. I remained single for 6 years and then met a beautiful Christian lady who was so kind to me, and so lovely. My "intent" was to connect with her. I was smitten by her beauty, and all it took was a simple, 'pardon me, but would you join me for a few minutes?', 'sure' she responded. We spent two years together, and then one night during a phone conversation she informed me that 'it's over'. I can hardly blame her, divorced with three young boys. I experienced the most wonderful and tender intimacy with that woman, hard to replace... yadda, yadda, yadda - 'where am I going with all this?' you ask.
I still feel incomplete without the loving embrace of a lady. I don't think this is arrested development, it runs much deeper than that. Can any of you relate to this? On my bad days, which are much more infrequent than they used to be, it's that same old nagging voice; "you'll always be alone", "you're not good enough, attactive enough, smart enough" - I think we can all relate to that. Most of the time, I feel free. Free to enjoy fleeting attractions, yet my soul nudges me to dig deeper than these flights of fancy. There is power in human touch, it heals us when we're broken. I agree with Eckhart Tolle when he said that relationships are not here to make us "happy", they're here to make us "conscious". I've been able to observe the dysfunction that plagues so many relationships, and I've been able to observe and work on the dysfunction that I've brought to my own relationships, and it has made me more "conscious", awake, if you like. Maybe my next relationship will be my first "real" one, but the answer does not lie in the future, it's here and now! Am I too greedy? It's not perfection that I seek in the "other" - it's communication, respect, love, trust, sharing, caring. I'm not articulating myself as well as I would like, but I would enjoy some feedback.

And by the way, my girlfriend of 6 years who left me for another man? She's now divorcing him and raising twin boys on her own after a mere two years of marriage. I'm seeing breakups occur with much greater frequency than in the past. Is this symptomatic of a "new" consiousness being birthed? Is it symptomatic of an insatiable consumer culture?

Ron

"I still feel incomplete without the loving embrace of a lady."

I think we have all felt some time in our life, that we yearned so much for the touch of another human - we felt so alone - so lost. Not unusual at all, unless you want to dwell there. We are "spiritual beings" having a human experience, as it was once said. Ego has us believing that someone else - another body - will provide us with our key to happiness and so we go on a quest to find that person. When we think we have the one, we place great expectations on them and then feel betrayed when they don't live up to our expectations - they don't do what we think they should do so that we can be happy. And such is the world of ego.

"On my bad days, which are much more infrequent than they used to be, it's that same old nagging voice; "you'll always be alone", "you're not good enough, attactive enough, smart enough" - I think we can all relate to that."

Begin by ceasing to see "bad days" - just as you have mentioned below - we will have what we say we will have. The aloneness, the separation you feel is all ego based. Try meditating so that you can feel complete - whole - one with your Higher Power. You are never alone, nor could ever be alone.

Most of the time, I feel free. Free to enjoy fleeting attractions, yet my soul nudges me to dig deeper than these flights of fancy. There is power in human touch, it heals us when we're broken. I agree with Eckhart Tolle when he said that relationships are not here to make us "happy", they're here to make us "conscious".

Being free is being your truth, not having "flights of fancy." It is not the touch of another that heals us, but a change of thought within our mind. Relationships do make us conscious - conscious of what though? Perhaps conscious of what expectations we have of another or conscious that within every relationship you have ever had, you have been the common denominator - you have been the constant in all your relationships.

"Maybe my next relationship will be my first "real" one, but the answer does not lie in the future, it's here and now! Am I too greedy? It's not perfection that I seek in the "other" - it's communication, respect, love, trust, sharing, caring."

Where do you rate yourself on communication, respect, love, trust, sharing and caring? And what do those words really mean to you? Do you love another's body and do you love what is beyond the body? Are you honest with yourself, so that you are honest with others? Do you hide from yourself at times, afraid to see you? Do you respect yourself? Are you okay with where you are at right now? Can you accept yourself just as you are? Do you trust yourself or do you lie to yourself? Do you share yourself with others, or do you hold back something from them? And lastly, do you love you? Can you face yourself in the mirror, and repeat over and over again - "I love you" with meaning, with a passion that comes deep within you? Until you can do the above, you cannot do them to another.

Look carefully at your past relationships - there were there to learn from. Did you learn from them? Look at them closely and see if you missed some lessons, for there appears to be a pattern in your last relationships and patterns are indications of previous lessons not learned.

Take time out and sort through all of this before you go out there on your quest for companionship. Be first a companion to yourself. Be content to be with you.

"I'm seeing breakups occur with much greater frequency than in the past"

Could be as simple as people are running from one relationship to another and not even sure what they are looking for. Each relationship is a class by itself, and it is a class we must always pass or we just take it over.

Understandably, a lot of people, through childhood training, or some other reason, find it hard to comprehend "belief makes it so." In our rushed pace, instant-gratification, negative news and tv culture, it's not easy to train the mind in more positive and productive ways in order to produce the results we want.

Dr. Wayne Dyer takes this simple truth (we can create or manifest what we want), and shows us how...we can draw on the force of creation (spiritual energy-intention) by applying the 7 faces of intention (creativity, love, kindness, beauty, expansion, peaceful abundance, and receptivity) and co-create our world!

Halfway through the book now, I've created several visualizations I use in drawing on this life force, this energy of creation, during quiet times as a form of meditation; I am experiencing some remarkable changes in my life. My ego is being reduced; I am more positive, and I am no longer focusing on what's missing in my life, but what I truly desire, meditating on creativity, love, kindness, expansion, peaceful abundance, and receptivity. I meditate, daily, every chance I can, especially when commuting.

Remarkably, people are responding to me in ways they haven't before, going out of their way to help, assist, in various situations, and all I can do is smile. I believe it's intention...things I need are manifesting in my life...my personal computer went on the fritz, and a generous friend gave me a computer...my gratitude goes directly to the intention (spiritual energy-life force) that created what I need.

I truly think this is a remarkable book, written by a powerful motivator/ author, who does, indeed, connect to the divine spirit of intention he so eloquently writes about.
