The Power of Your Spirit – A Guide to Joyful Living by Sonia Choquette

This paragraph, from the afterward of the book, best summarizes what the author wishes the reader to take away:

“Moving through the four stages of transformation as we come to embrace the authentic power of our Spirit is a dynamic and challenging process. Each phase demands our full attention, evokes our worst fears, challenges our limited beliefs, and demands relentless courage, as we’re asked to grow in ways that aren’t always comfortable or easy.”

This instructional guide is separated into four stages:

  • Awakening your Spirit
  • Discovering your Spirit
  • Surrendering to your Spirit
  • Flowing with your Spirit

I’ve found this to be some of the easiest to understand and implement instruction on Intention that I’ve read. Each chapter has short stories representing experiences of others who have taken this journey to help make it easier to relate to the content. Other categories in each chapter include “Making the Shift” which explains the process one would need to go through; “Asking the Questions” which is a list of questions for the traveler to contemplate and a section “Daily Practice” to begin learning the discipline of Intention. This is a good guide for the novice, but I also think that those who have been studying Intention for sometime will find this an interesting read that will churn up new inspiration.

The Power of Intention, Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

This book makes a fabulous training manual or workbook for those interested in understanding the concept of the Source and Intention. A person could read through this in a few days, but I would suggest that they schedule some time, possibly 1 chapter per week or month, to actually study and ponder each chapter’s material and exercises. If one is studying this concept with the idea of putting these practices into place, also consider partnering with family and close friends, a sort of study group, to help ensure that those bonds stay strong through a mutual understanding of this journey.

This particular edition of this book, the Gift Edition, is breathtakingly beautiful due to the art work (illustrations by Jui Ishida), the brilliant colors and the soft glossy texture of the paper. This makes the case for “real books” vs “e-books”. There is no way that this sort of sensuous (b : producing or characterized by gratification of the senses – © 2010 Merriam-Webster, Incorporated) experience can be reproduced in digital form. I thank Dr. Dyer and Hay House for this amazing gift, which I consider one of my treasures.

Ch 1: Viewing Intention from a New Perspective

The Power of Intention, Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

I think that for those who are new to Intention, the title of the chapter “Viewing Intention from a New Perspective” should really be Viewing Life from a New Perspective. Dr. Dyer teaches us that we must let go of what we’ve previously been taught about our self perceptions and learn a new way to view ourselves. Through that process we can then begin to understand the power of intention. Dr. Dyer includes instructions and exercises so that even a novice can easily understand these principles.

Part III: The Connection

This review is for “the gift edition” of this book. And, as you can see by the photo of the book cover and from the displays on the links that this is full of beautiful, joyful, art work, which makes it the perfect gift for someone interested in the Power of Intention.

As suggested in the Preface of the book, I read the final chapter, “A Portrait of a Person Connected to the Field of Intention”, first. This chapter helps the reader, whether a novice or seasoned co-creater, to focus on the goal of becoming more in tuned with the Source.

More to come . . .
