"Dyer's soothing voice and gentle prescriptions for happiness remain uniquely his own." (Publishers Weekly)
This is one of the most amazing books I have ever read. Wayne Dyer is a brillant thinker and a very enlighten person. If you are interested in tuning in to your purpose, understanding your own power, and learning how to connect to the power of intention - read this book. You won't agree with everything Dyer says, but take all the rest and put it to work and you will be amazed at the difference you'll see in your life.
This is an outstanding seminar style type audio book. If you have seen the movie "What the Bleep!#@! Do We Know". This audio book will guide you through "Creating your day" with intent. Once you have mastered that (and everyone can!) you will be able to shape your life to what you want it to be. I have already listened to it 3 times and still see new ideas and connections that I haven't had before.
Use your intent and create your day!
After watching his seminar on PBS I could not wait to listen to this book. He has helped me so much come to terms with the death of my husband, I am a transformed person. My family and friends are amazed at how far I have come in such a short time. He helped me to realize that death is not the end of life. I would invite anyone who has any issues they are trying to overcome to listen to any of his books or lectures. He is inspired "in sprite".
Recently I found myself asking questions as to what I really want. I recently broke off a long term relationship with someone very dear to me and this has forced me to reassess certain goals and figure out what it all meant for the future. It seems like this major life change has coincided with listening to alot of self development and spiritual audio books. The Power of Intention is something I reccomend for how direct the message is.
I want to make clear I have some caveats however. I don't think Dyer is that original. I think he takes from alot of great minds in compiling his philosophy and most of his ideas. Nevertheless his presentation did genuinely affect me; helping me sort through concepts I already had realized but hadn't clarified. What are the messages I most responded to? Well, letting yourself live life without getting bogged down by outter deterrents. The biggest revelation I'm taking form Power Of Intention is the need to live life inward-out, rather than Outward-In. I've known many people that strive for things based on what people think of them, what they have, and whether or not their job pays enough. The basis for action here is on outside stimuli and approval with no thought given to the inner drive that informs all healthy action. Dyer's message was just what I needed at a time when my ego took a big hit. I could have easily wasted further time feeling undue pain. Now my mindset is a million times lighter, and for that I'm thankful. You may be put off by how much Dyer quotes and his vocabulary with regard to certain concepts is sometimes unintentionally funny, but in the end there's enough truth here to overcome details like that. I especially reccomend it for people that are going through an especially stressful time. I assure you, this book willl show you how every experience (good and bad) is an opportunity to realize growth and happiness in your life.
Due to my up-bringing, I could very well say "been there done that - heard that even". But, in a world where it's so easy be driven into negative thinking, this book served me as a great reminder of a basic truth that we all seem to know but very easily forget.
This book is absolutely brilliant. I love it. It's practical, inspiring and fun. Ever since I've listened to this book, it gave me inspiration and the ability to appreciate my life, all of my life.
I can't thank Dr Dyer enough. He speaks to you with compassion and strength. He assumes you may be skeptical and takes his time explaining his ideas and acknowledges your possible skepticism. He does not assume we all listening for the same reason and lets you decide on what to believe. Thank You Dr. Dyer for not forcing it!
I love all his books, he uses easy language that makes for easy listening and his story is inspirational and relaxing.
I have bought a few of his books and I love them all.....
The message is simple, meditate, especially the Japa Meditation

Good sense, common sense, wisdom: I take this as Dyer's memoir on how he achieved his own inner balance. He reads beautifully and it is pleasant to listen to the story of how his life and meditation practice interweave. (A great, peaceful and mind-calming audiobook for long car drives.)
