The Power of Intention

health & vitality mind & meaning Feb 23, 2022

What if you were able to tap into an inherent power to bring about even greater success and well-being for you and those around you?  

While it may seem difficult to imagine, the latest scientific research supports the idea that we each have this power, and it can be accessed by becoming more conscious of our thoughts and setting positive intentions. 

As one of the leading authorities on consciousness and the “New Science,” Lynne McTaggart has witnessed the profound impacts of thoughts, beliefs, and intentions numerous times through her research.

In Episode 82 of The MINDSet Game® podcast, Lynne offers an overview of how scientific understandings of human consciousness have evolved over time and how we can cultivate our innate abilities to heal ourselves, each other, and the world.


The evolution of science

Influenced by the ideas of Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin, scientists believed for many years that humans were separate entities with an individualistic, competitive nature that pitted us against each other in a survival of the fittest. However, as quantum physics has emerged as a main area of focus, scientists’ understandings of human nature have begun to shift. 

As Lynne says, “We are all part of a quantum energy field…Every part of us, every subatomic particle, is a vibrating packet of energy, sending other energy back and forth like an endless game of tennis.” In fact, even our thoughts are a form of energy, with a strong ability to affect other things—from complex electronic equipment (as a Princeton University study found), to animals, to human beings.


Intention as a mechanism for healing

Given the power of our thoughts to impact the world around us, how can we channel those thoughts to bring about positive changes? Lynne shares a few research-backed ideas:

•  Strive to become more conscious of your thoughts. Lynne notes that we have, on average, 70,000 thoughts per day—and many of those tend to be negative about ourselves and judgmental about others. All of that harmful thinking can become what you send out into the world and bring into existence. Lynne suggests simply becoming more aware of your thoughts and replacing those that are negative with loving intentions.

•  Be specific. Lynne says that many people make the mistake of setting overly broad intentions, such as “I want to be rich.” However, the more specific that you can be with your intentions, the better.

•  Practice setting intentions in a group. One of Lynne’s best-selling books is The Power of Eight®, which explores her findings on the incredible changes that can occur when a group of people focuses their intention together on a single target. In the podcast episode, Lynne describes why group intention is so powerful and shares some real examples of the transformations she has seen in her work. 


In addition to The Power of Eight, Lynne’s publications include The Field, The Intention Experiment, and The Bond. She is also the co-founder of the international magazine, What Doctors Don’t Tell You, the “Get Well” health expo, the architect of the Intention Experiments—a web-based global laboratory to test the power of intention to heal our world—and has consistently been listed as one of the top 100 spiritually influential people in the world.
