The Power of Intention
Nkaka Victor (Rwanda)
The thoughts, ideas and strategies in this book will help me to live a successful life completely. By integrating these ideas and strategies into my daily life will make me who I want to be, do and have and they will also shift me where I am now to where I want to land in my life, they will also give me a sense of power, purpose and self-actualization, they will enable me to be more positive, more focused and more able to interact with others. They will teach me how to unlock the great untapped reserves of potential that lie deep within me and they will also propel my whole life onto a high road of success, achievement and great happiness.
Here are some of my favourite quotes from the book along with my interpretations:
“Intent is a force that exists in the universe. When sorcerers beckon intent, it comes to them and sets up the path for attainment, which means that sorcerers always accomplish what they set out to do.”
Intention is a force we all have within us. Intention is a field of energy that flows invisibly beyond the reach of our normal, everyday habitual patterns. It is there even before our actual conception. We have the means to attract this energy to us and experience life in an exciting new way. Our intelligence, creativity, and imagination interact with the energy field of intention rather than being thoughts or elements in our brain.
“All ordering influence and information is present in an invisible domain or higher reality and can be called upon in times of need.”
Intention is a power that’s present everywhere as a field of energy, it isn’t limited to physical development. It’s the source of non-physical development too. This field of intention is here, now and available to you. When you activate it, you’ll begin to feel purpose in your life, and you’ll be guided by your infinite self.
“Our individual thoughts create a prototype in the universal mind of intention.”
When you form a thought within you that’s commensurate with spirit, you form a spiritual prototype that connects you to intention and sets into motion the manifestation of your desires. Whatever you wish to accomplish is an existing fact, already present in spirit. Eliminate from your mind thoughts of conditions, limitations or possibility of it not manifesting. Believe that your desire has already been fulfilled, and then it will be accomplished. Know that your thought or prayer is already here. Remove all doubt so that you create a harmonious thought with the universe’s mind or intention. When you know this beyond doubt, it will be realized in the future.
“I’m here on purpose, I can accomplish anything I desire, and I do it by being in harmony with the all-pervading creative force in the universe.”
Act as if anything you desire is already here. Believe that all that you seek you’ve already received, that it exists in spirit, and know you shall have your desire filled. The secret for success and inner peace is to treat yourself as if you already are who you’d like to become. If there is an omnipresent power of intention that’s not only within me, but in everything and everyone and to what we’d like to be, what we’d like to have, what we want to achieve, and to everything in the universe and activating intention.
“Truth and beauty are one and the same, beautiful thoughts build a beautiful soul.”
As you become receptive to seeing and feeling beauty around you, you’re becoming attuned to the creative power of intention within everything in the natural world, including yourself. By choosing to see beauty in everything, even a person who was born into poverty and ignorance will be able to experience the power of intention. Seeking beauty in the worst of circumstances with individual intent connects one to the power of intention. The face of beauty is always present, even where others see non-beauty.
As Viktor Frank once said that “it is the ability to see beauty in all of life’s circumstances that gives our lives meaning.” If we focus on what’s ugly, we attract more ugliness into our thoughts, and then into our emotions, and ultimately into our lives. By choosing to hang on to one’s corner of freedom even in the worst situations, we can process our world with the energy of appreciation and beauty, and create an opportunity to transcend our circumstances.
“Your job is not to say how, it’s to say yes. Yes, I’m willing. Yes, I know that the power of intention is universal. It’s denied to no one.”
By being receptive, you have to be in harmony with the power of intention of the universal creative force. You’ll see the right people magically appear in your life, your body healing, and if it’s something that you want, you’ll even discover yourself becoming a better dancer, card player, or athlete. The field of intention allows everything to emanate into form, and its unlimited potential is built into all that has manifested even before its initial birth pangs were being expressed.
What Others Are Saying
Why I Chose IIGL?
Andras Nevai (Hungary)
“Our Family Foundation was involved almost from the beginning of IIGL through my many years acquaintance with the IIGL Founder, Michael Lightweaver. Over the years, I have personally served as Donor, Advisor and also as Mentor to quite a few IIGL Students (some for 13 and 14 years and ongoing). Our Foundation chooses only those recipient organizations that are the most practical, the most honest, the most efficient and importantly show the most outstanding results in the quality and quantity of the Fruit of their Labors! After over 15 years of working with IIGL and with several decades of numerous other donation recipient organizations, I may say without reservation that IIGL is one of the very best in each and every category I have described. So much so that in my opinion some of their student graduates who are already greatly affecting their worlds on a local and even national level that some of them will surely become excellent Leaders of their Nations! I am not speaking of one or two exceptional people, I am speaking of a large percentage of the Graduates of IIGL! The only mystery for me in all of this is why are there not long lines of new students registering for one of the very best starts into Responsible Adulthood, Leadership, Commitment to Life, Self-Confidence and Self-Starting Excellence which is provided by the International Institute for Global Leadership? It’s All in the name.”
What are Students are Reading
True Prosperity ($14.99)
Everyone wants to be financially successful, but great financial success often brings negative side effects in other areas. In this exciting new paperback edition of his popular book, Yehuda Berg shows why the true purpose of our lives is complete happiness and total fulfillment. Drawing on the lessons of years of study and teaching, True Prosperity shows how the teachings of Kabbalah, the world’s oldest body of spiritual wisdom, can be used every day and every moment not only to achieve success in one aspect of life, but to avoid the setbacks in other areas that can render any accomplishment empty and meaningless. Readers will gain powerful, practical tools for achieving unlimited abundance in money and finance, health and fitness, family and relationships, and lifelong spiritual growth. “Success without side effects” is the ultimate destination of every human being, and True Prosperity is the roadmap for getting there.

Make A Difference
Dream Team 22
Please join Dream Team 22 as our goal is to have 22 people contributing $22 per month. We understand that money is energy and that to sustain and build IIGL we need a lot of people pouring their energy into this endeavor on a regular basis. We also know that not everyone can afford to commit $22 a month – especially our students, who live in countries with economies in which this amount can be equal to a weeks’ salary. So we are offering two options for those who wish to become a part of the Dream Team. One can commit to a $22 a month contribution or to spending 22 seconds each day holding the vision of IIGL becoming financially sustainable by the end of 2021!
Please join the Dream Team and help us create an energetic foundation to support the transformational work of IIGL! You can really make a difference in the world by making a modest contribution of time or money. To make the $22 a month commitment or a one time donation, click the link below. To become a member of the Dream Team 22 by committing 22 second a day to help us hold the vision, contact Deb for details: email@example.com
