The Power of Intention

In the earlier half of 2006, I picked up Dr. Wayne Dyer's book, The Power or Intention that lay on my mother-in-law's coffee table.   For some reason, I could not get past the second page of the first chapter.  I can't explain it state of mind or the "block" I was experiencing in that moment other than to say that I was not yet ready to receive what this book contained.

Then, in August of 2008, I turned on the television and heard Dr. Dyer speak for the first time.  My daughter was age four and PBS was the only channel that I permitted her to watch.  So, I found myself listening and immediately connecting to Dr. Dyer's message.  I was experiencing a difficult day and his words were timely.  I ordered a series of books and DVD's and everything I heard and read resonated.  Admittedly, I still have not read this book in its entirety.  However, I do open it from time to time and find that I receive the exact message that is intended for me.  Like today, for example, I opened it up and found myself on page 117 which discusses "a sense of destiny."  The first line of this page reads "In the active side of infinity, your connection to intention will no longer be thought of as an option, but as a calling that you must heed." 

The words "a calling you must heed" echoes in my heart.  This comes just days after publishing my first book which began as a childhood intention.  I wrote in one of my earliest journals that I would one day write a book.  Never did I imagine that it would be about my life experiences.  I have come to see that when Life offers you a dream far beyond anything you ever imagined for yourself, it is best to follow this flow.  See where it all leads.  In Dr. Dyer's words "you have an endless stream of green lights before you!"

Love to you,
