Publisher's Summary

Intention is generally viewed as a pit bull kind of determination propelling one to succeed at all costs by never giving up on an inner picture. In this view, an attitude that combines hard work with an indefatigable drive toward excellence is the way to succeed. However, intention is viewed very differently in this audiobook. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has researched intention as a force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. This audiobook explores intention, not as something you do, but as an energy you're a part of. We're all intended here through the invisible power of intention. This is the first audiobook to look at intention as a field of energy that you can access to begin co-creating your life with the power of intention.

You Must Read This!

This is one of the most amazing books I have ever read. Wayne Dyer is a brillant thinker and a very enlighten person. If you are interested in tuning in to your purpose, understanding your own power, and learning how to connect to the power of intention - read this book. You won't agree with everything Dyer says, but take all the rest and put it to work and you will be amazed at the difference you'll see in your life.

BRAVO

This is an outstanding seminar style type audio book. If you have seen the movie "What the Bleep!#@! Do We Know". This audio book will guide you through "Creating your day" with intent. Once you have mastered that (and everyone can!) you will be able to shape your life to what you want it to be. I have already listened to it 3 times and still see new ideas and connections that I haven't had before.

Use your intent and create your day!

Recently I found myself asking questions as to what I really want. I recently broke off a long term relationship with someone very dear to me and this has forced me to reassess certain goals and figure out what it all meant for the future. It seems like this major life change has coincided with listening to alot of self development and spiritual audio books. The Power of Intention is something I reccomend for how direct the message is.

I want to make clear I have some caveats however. I don't think Dyer is that original. I think he takes from alot of great minds in compiling his philosophy and most of his ideas. Nevertheless his presentation did genuinely affect me; helping me sort through concepts I already had realized but hadn't clarified. What are the messages I most responded to? Well, letting yourself live life without getting bogged down by outter deterrents. The biggest revelation I'm taking form Power Of Intention is the need to live life inward-out, rather than Outward-In. I've known many people that strive for things based on what people think of them, what they have, and whether or not their job pays enough. The basis for action here is on outside stimuli and approval with no thought given to the inner drive that informs all healthy action. Dyer's message was just what I needed at a time when my ego took a big hit. I could have easily wasted further time feeling undue pain. Now my mindset is a million times lighter, and for that I'm thankful. You may be put off by how much Dyer quotes and his vocabulary with regard to certain concepts is sometimes unintentionally funny, but in the end there's enough truth here to overcome details like that. I especially reccomend it for people that are going through an especially stressful time. I assure you, this book willl show you how every experience (good and bad) is an opportunity to realize growth and happiness in your life.

The Power of Intention

After watching his seminar on PBS I could not wait to listen to this book. He has helped me so much come to terms with the death of my husband, I am a transformed person. My family and friends are amazed at how far I have come in such a short time. He helped me to realize that death is not the end of life. I would invite anyone who has any issues they are trying to overcome to listen to any of his books or lectures. He is inspired "in sprite".

An excellent 'in-your-face' reminder

Due to my up-bringing, I could very well say "been there done that - heard that even". But, in a world where it's so easy be driven into negative thinking, this book served me as a great reminder of a basic truth that we all seem to know but very easily forget.

Utter Nonsense

Stopped listening after the second CD. I saw him on a PBS special and thought it was pretty good. The book on the other hand is filled with self-promotion ("as I talk about in my other book that comes with a CD" - which he mentions twice in the span of three chapters). His discussion is filled with what seem scientific concepts, yet is largely unsubstantiated. The previous review said "it was way over my head, maybe I'll listen to it again". The problem wasn't that it was over my head. The problem was, I DID understand it. While I do believe in the concept of Intention, his attempt to use "science" to support it is weak. In some cases he makes statements so categorically you?d think they were on the level of the law gravity, in other cases he uses convoluted logic to "prove" his assertions (If A leads to B and B leads to C then E must lead to D). I was very disappointed and encourage you to not waste your time or credit.

Whats he talking about?

I have listened to quite a few of Dyers books starting with Your Erroneous Zones many years back. Overall, I think he's very good and partictuarrly like his early work. For a guy who started out teaching techniques for not getting upset over what you cannot control i.e. Detroit traffic and not letting other peoples opinions of you matter more than your own - he has come along way. This book is about tapping into a universal energy source and is pretty far out there for a self help book. He does go over some old ground covered previously but overall this is advanced stuff and for me not very useful and practical. OK maybe I'm not ready to "go to the next level of consciousness" but I would warn that unless your the type that's into trying meditation you may share my reaction.

The Power of Intension

This may be good for some but too philosophical for me. Most of it was way over my head. Maybe I will listen to it again and try to get more out of it. But it is missing basic direction.

Such a powerful listen

I loved the content of this book and I gleaned lots of ideas and inspiration from it. It’s certainly going to help me be more intentional with my actions. I did feel that it was read a bit too quickly though so I felt a bit like I couldn’t keep up and that I couldn’t process the new ideas I was hearing properly so I kept having to skip back and listen to bits again. But overall, highly recommended!

The Power of Intention

I listened to it five times in a row. With the author's own voice the meaning and message is clear and uplifting. Intention is a self-actualised spirit-formed action and the author gives the subject and its power a magical meaning.

Addictive

Listening to Dr Dyer is just uplifting. You don't ever feel like putting his book down or doing anything else but listen to him. While cleaning my room or cooking or commuting, I listen to him and time just disappears. You will not be missed Dr Dyer cos you are still living with us and teaching us every single day 🙏 I thank you from the bottom of my heart ♥

I didn’t want it to end. Wayne Dyer has truly changed my life. I listened to it at night as a form of meditation. How wonderful beautifully it is we all have an equal infinite abundance to the power of intention.

Wisdom Shared Gracefully

Once again I have enjoyed listening to the wise words of Wayne Dyer.
He has an easygoing manner and what he shares feels achievable, not far fetched or too idealistic.

So glad that Wayne narrated the audio book himself, this added a lot of value for me.
