Hi julie59. I'm glad you've found us.
I didn't know anything about Wayne W. Dyer, but after reding your post I checked on the net for him.
I took the following from his site for future comments :
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 book. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has researched intention as a force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. This book 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 book to look at intention as a field of energy that you can access to begin co-creating your life with the power of intention.
I didn't read any of his books, so I might be wrong. What he says above about the power of intention, it's known by myself as the strenght of will.
Did you read the "Law of Intention" ? Is he actually talking about will ?
