Here's the major reservation: in Calvinism, you could tell who was saved and going to heaven by how successful and prosperous they were. In Social Darwinism, successful people were evidence of survival of the fittest. In the Power of Intention, people create the lives they want based on being "aligned with Intention". The implication is that if they are poor, diseased, homeless, or victimized, they are not aligned with Intention. They may not be sinners (Calvinism) or unfit (Social Darwinism), but they are unenlightened and somehow responsible for their unhappy fate. I wonder what advice Dyer would have had for the victims of the recent tsunami.
If Dyer's theories are correct and universal, should we be translating his book and dropping it into distressed areas like Darfur in the Sudan or perhaps in the Sunni triangle? Personal responsibility is a powerful and often overlooked factor in the human condition, but Dyer seems oblivious to the possibility that there might be other factors at work, as well. His five words "I want to feel good" would be a tough sell for the sole survivor of a family that has just been murdered.Read more ›
This may sound outrageous, but Dyer's words have healed me. I cried through so many passages because I knew that blocks in my life were finally being lifted from me. I got it. And I got it in a big way.
I was about to go to see a psychiatrist about a chronic mental issue. I was convinced that I absolutely needed medication to help me. I read this book and my problems have decreased in such a dramatic way... problems have been replaced by peace. It is not an easy fix-- I still struggle, but then I remember how to access intention. The difference is that before I would have struggled all night long. Now, I have the tools to go back to peace and calm immediately. I take it moment to moment and that sure beats being addicted to medication.
I read some of the reviews below; while most were positive, there were surprisingly some negative ones. Some questioned Dyer's motives and claimed that he does not offer concrete ways to access intention. I cannot disagree more. I feel that his motives are pure and genuine... and why shouldn't abundance rain on a man who has helped so many? If he did not offer concrete ways to access intention, I would not feel so energized and healed.
Buy the book, borrow it from a friend. Whatever you can do to get your hands on this book, do it. It will change your life.
This is a comprehensive book that will help to elevate your life in all areas. It will help you turn you negative thinking around, which is the by-product of turning your life around. This is one of the few books that has impacted my life, and has helped me to `feel good' which is why it is highly recommended.
This book will teach you how to become A 'Connector' by working in harmony with those around you. It gives you examples to raise your energy above the negativity of 'competition' and shows you how to align yourself in harmony no matter what your outer conditions are. When you are attuned to this field of alignment, you will radiate and attract to you exactly what is within the field of energy you are in harmony with.
Connecting to the filed of intention is a conscious, daily, moment by moment inner experience to connect you to the highest that exists within you. As a result you WILL bring about EXACTLY what you harmonize with on all levels. This book is a wonderful tool to help you consciously bring about the best in your life from the inside out.

Says Dyer, "You must learn to be like the energy that allowed you to be in the first place...You were intended out of love, you must be love in order to intend."
This book is a gift for the soul, a treatise on living in accord with the laws of the universe, which he calls the faces of intention: creativity, kindness, love, beauty, expansion, unlimited abundance and receptivity to all. Dyer says, "Intention is the silent partner who's accessible at any moment we choose," explaining that the only way you deactivate this guiding, co-creative energy is by believing that you're separate from it.
Dyer is a wonderful storyteller, bringing you to tears and laughter to anchor his ideas. He has a contagious enthusiasm for sharing his recent insights about intention, their relationship to free will, and our connection to all living beings.
The Power of Intention is a practical guide for those who believe that we are spiritual beings in physical form, and who want to learn how to re-connect to the source of our Divine nature, making life on earth the fullest possible experience of love, beauty, kindness and abundance.
