The Power of Intention:
Learning to Co-Create Your World Your Way

by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
2004

It's easy to argue that Wayne Dyer, like most other writers in the self-help field, is conveying nothing new, that his message is the same one that has been offered by dozens of excellent writers in the past. While there's certainly truth in that contention, it's also irrelevant. Of course the message is always the same; all paths ultimately depend on a connection with the source, whatever "source" means to the author, and reader. What is important is how effectively that message is communicated, and if it rings true in the particular day and age in which it is written. Authors such as Napoleon Hill and Dale Carnegie are classic authors of their era. Their work still resonates today (just as Dr. Dyer's work will no doubt resonate 50 years from now). But every era needs its own gurus and experts. Wayne Dyer happens to be one of the more intuitive experts in our own particular era, and The Power of Intention is one of his most inspiring works.

Dyer has centered this book around the concept of intention - not the "intention" that is synonymous with dogged determination, but intention in which one manifests the soul's desire through a powerful and unshakable connection with Source. It's an idea that was inspired by Carlos Castaneda but presented in a more down-to-earth way. (Although the origin of Castaneda's books is questionable, the principles he wrote about are actually quite compelling.) The Power of Intention is divided into three parts. In "The Essentials of Intention," Dyer gives intention form and definition - he ties it in with attributes such as creativity, kindness and abundance, and looks at it in relation to obstacles and relationships. "Part II: Putting Intention to Work" contains a lot of practical information about using intention to attain anything from success and abundance to self-respect and healthy interactions with others. The final chapter, "The Connection," describes "connectors," or those who are connected to the field of intention. If you want to effect positive change in your life, Dyer's book is actually a pretty good manual. Real change always begins from within, and The Power of Intention invites a major shift in consciousness.

If you have seen Dr. Dyer's PBS special, then you already have an idea of what this book is about. If you haven't seen the show, it doesn't really matter since he explores the ideas he discusses in depth in this book. Either way, The Power of Intention is as powerful as you make it out to be. The information contained in this book is meant to be used, not merely pondered. The only way to enrich one's life is by taking action. If this book does that for you, then Dyer - like all those before him - has done his job.
