The Power of Intention?
Hello Godlike people, I'm baaaack....

"The Power of Intention" is basically the concept that "thoughts create reality." It's more than just the idea that a "positive attitude" shapes the circumstances of our lives in ordinary ways. Rather, it's the idea that mind can somehow directly affect matter and allow us to "create reality" in a much more literal sense.

This brief 1 minute video by the Institute of Noetic Sciences introduces the concept. The presenter is Lynne McTaggart, author of "The Field," a book dealing with these ideas:

Personally, I'm deeply skeptical about all of this. However, I'm interested in hearing other people's perspectives on the idea. Also, I'm interested in talking about the kind of experiences people have had either with the concept itself or with people who believe in it.

What do people on GLP think? Is there anything to this, or will we fly the BS flag high? I may share some of my own thoughts as the discussion progresses.
Everybody gets the Nat they deserve.

It's not just about thoughts. It's about sound and vibrations. Even a thought has vibration.
Research sound and frequencies.

Re: The Power of Intention?
Hmm..2 bad i wasn't around when this discusion was supposed to take place.i also see it was supposed 2 be about people's experiences but noone had any.i don't really think people don't experience this at all,i just think they don't really pay atention.they usualy prefer to call it luck or coincidence,or if they do realize something weird is going on they'd rather not talk about it for fear of being called stupid or crazy

Re: The Power of Intention?
I used to not pay atention all the time and atribute everything to coincidence myself,but after god slaping me around for years i decided to take a moment and think about things.suddenly concepts like the power of intention,faith,karma, didn't seem all that wack to me.although i do believe it has to do more with decision than intention.people will often have contradictions,they don't really know what they want,so u can't really talk about the power of intention untill u've decided what it really is that u want.

Re: The Power of Intention?
Talking about people who can't decide what they want.People will say that's not true,of course they know what they want.money,love,succes,respect...who doesn't want these things.well it's not that easy.let me give u a clear example of just how fucked up a mind can get after a few unfortunate experiences.i could say i want to love and be loved as much as anyone out there.who doesn't?so i was quick to jump into relationships as soon as i left my home and began living on my own.loneliness will do that 2 u.first relationship,i tried realy hard to make it worked.i had 2 sacrifice everything including my dignity and it still wasn't enough.he eventualy left me.so one conclusion i've drawn from that is that no matter how much u are willing to give,if the other one is only taking it will never be enough.so i made a decision...i will never again be that stupid and give more than another is willing to return.and then of course being abandoned hurt like hell so i thought to myself how much i wished i'd find somebody who will never leave me no matter what...when they say b carefull what u wish 4 this is what they meant.fast forward a couple of months and i find myself in another relationship.things go wrong and this time it is me who wants 2 pull the plug.but wait,this guy is set on spending the rest of his life with me and won't leave me no matter what.just what i wished 4.power of intention?well things go like this:he tells me we'll b together forever,that it's either him or nobody else,and just to make his point clear beats the crap out of me and lockes me in the house for months.i try to escape,he finds me and tries to kill me.it's only 4 divine intervention that he doesn't succede and i get away,move to another city and lose my tracks.so now i'm left with another dilema.being abandoned hurts like hell but when they refuse to abandon u it's even worse.so what's going on these days is that when i do meet some guy i like and he askes me out i clear up things from the begining saying i'm not interested in anything serious.when i realise that either him or me are getting a little 2 emotionaly involved i pull the plug imediately.and here comes the crazy part.there are 2 things he could do in that situation and neither of them are right 4 me.he could try to insist that we keep seeing each other,in which case my face will turn pale and i will be terifyed thinking another obsesed individual who won't respect my wishes and will eventualy end up stalking and maybe killing me this time.as i'll be thinking this i'll look around me for the fastest way out or some public place where i might feel secure...anyway,the second thing he could do is to say ok,i respect ur wishes and go now.in which case i'll start crying and feeling depresed thinking another one who didn't feel i was worth trying a little harder to make it work and just left.so there u have it.if they try to stay i feel stalked,if they try to go i feel abandoned.nothing they'll ever do will be ok with me.there are these oposite desires/intentions fighting in my mind and i can't make a decision.i want 2 b alone and not lonely at the same time.so for me to say that the power of intention doesn't work would mean 2 b ignorant of the fact that i can't even decide what i want.so how could i posibly know if it works or not when i can't put faith and b optimistic of something that's not there

Re: The Power of Intention?
I realise that was an extreme example and not even profesional help could do much for me these days,but i do believe a lot of people go through situations when they want something realy bad but they want something diferent as well and they just can't decide.the problem is they're sending mixed signals,no wonder they get no response back.luckily 4 me there are other areas in my life where i did get my priorities straight and sometimes the results show

Re: The Power of Intention?
Talking about facts.last year i was in real trouble.i was supposed to pay the rent that exact day and i was missing 100 euros.the guy who rented the app. to me already let me know he wasn't gonna take any BS.i wasn't working,no friends to ask 4 a favour...i was in trouble.let's just say i really knew what i wanted that day.i remember walking out of the house thinking i don't care what happens today,i'm not comming back home without 100 euros.i'm gonna find it on the ground,beg for it on the streets if i have to but there's no way i'll be sleeping at the train station tonight.been there,done that,and not planing to repeat that experience again.so i took the buss and got off of it in a random stop,just walking around randomly.didn't really have any precise plan,i was just looking for an oportunity.and what do u think happened?after a couple oe hours of wondering around there i find a 100 euros bill right there on the ground,in my way, just waiting for me.i didn't even believe it at first,i almost walked past it as there were a lot of lottery tickets shaped like real money throwen around on the streets at that time.i thought it must of been one of those.something just pulled me down to take a better look and i couldn't believe my "luck".i mean what a coincidence...the exact sum of money i needed,not one cent more or less(i didn't even have 70 cents left to buy a bus ticket to go home so i just risked it),waiting there on the exact same way i was taking (randomly),at the exact time(one minute later and someone else could have found it) some "coincidence" no?or was it?i don't know.calling it coincidence without taking in consideration the exact precision with which things happen sometimes to lead u to the corect ending of ur desire...coincidence just doesn't do it 4 me

Re: The Power of Intention?
I pretty much get whatever I want through intention , if there is something I want then I wish for it.....I may or may not have to put in a little effort but I sure do OK in life....I ll not go into my circumstances as thats irrelevant , just the fact that either small things or large things I seem to require in life I get without getting into massive debt or working 50/60 hours a week.
I remember reading once that energy cannot be created or destroyed , intention therefore could be energy that needs to be moved , using the brain we can direct that energy where we wish.....

Re: The Power of Intention?
I think another problem that people encounter is that they sabotage themselves sometimes.they set the intention and are optimistic and faithfull about it,but then as the proces evolves they don't recognise where that is leading them to and as things seem to get out of hand they try 2 fight back and regain control of the situation.they try too hard and they ruin everything.like 4 instance what happened 2 me just yesterday.i've been thinking of getting in touch with my best friend for a very long time now,but everytime i try to contact her something happens and we miss each other.yesterday she was on my mind all day long.comming back from work yesterday i found my tv wasn't working.also there was a pretty nasty storm outside so i couldn't take my dog 4 a walk.i basicaly had nothing to do.i tried to fix my tv for a while but since i began paying a little atention 2 life in general and the way and why things happen i knew not to fight 2 much what's happening.maybe there was a good reason why i was left like that,bored with nothing to do.so i left the tv alone and sat down and thought about things.what was i supposed 2 do?what could i do?and then i remenbered my friend.in the begining i was like"yeah right,i'm sure my tv broke down and the storm started just for me to get in touch with her.we haven't spoken to each other 4 such a long time,i'm sure she just happens to be online right now,sure".but i gave it a shot since there was nothing else for me to do and...surprise.now had i decided to fight what was going on,maybe spend all my time trying to fix the tv or call somebody to help me i would have never talked to my friend after all this time.and that was more important to me than any tv show or any other activity to kill time,so things worked out best on their own.don't try so hard!decide what u want and let it happen.
