Book Description

9 Jan 2007

Ever wondered if your intentions, prayers or wishes have a real, calculable effect on the world? Here, from Lynne McTaggart, groundbreaking author of ‘The Field’, comes riveting accounts of scientific investigations and real case histories with evidence that we are all connected and our intentions can be harnessed as a collective force for good.

For the last 40 years renegade scientists, experimenting with the limits of quantum physics, have made seemingly impossible discoveries. 1966: a lie-detector expert accidentally discovers that plants can read thoughts. 1982: meditating Buddhist monks in the Himalayas turn their bodies into a human furnace. 1994: a psychologist's experiments reveal a stream of light flowing from healers during healing.

These events form part of an extraordinary scientific story and revolutionary discovery - that thought is a thing that affects other things.

In The Intention Experiment, Lynne McTaggart, author of the international bestseller The Field, joins forces with a team of international, renowned scientists to test the effects of focused group intention on scientifically quantifiable targets - animal, plant and human.

The Intention Experiment is a truly revolutionary book that invites you, the reader, to take part in the greatest intention experiment in history. The results of McTaggart's 'global laboratory' started with the focused intention that made a geranium leaf glow to evidence to show that group intention is powerful enough to affect targets more than 5000 miles away and may even affect global warming.

These remarkable results prove human thought and intention has the power to focus our lives, heal our illnesses, clean up our communities and improve the planet. This book also shows you how to harness that power to make changes in your own life.

Previous praise for The Field:

"This important book…makes a good case that we are on the verge of another revolution in our understanding of the universe-perhaps even greater than the one that heralded the Atomic Age." Arthur C. Clarke

"Fascinating, provocative, and highly readable….One of the most thought-provoking reads of [the year]." The Ecologist

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal 23 April 2007
Lynne McTaggart is an award-winning journalist and a best-selling author of "The Field". Although not a trained scientist, she has an uncanny ability to bring complex quantum theory to a practical language that makes sense. "The Intention Experiment" expands on the concepts of purposeful consciousness she introduced in her previous book. Unlike other works that simply offer "New Age" fluff to entice a public hungry for hope, "The Intention Experiment" grounds the contention that thoughts have an innate power to affect living organisms on impeccable double-blind studies conducted by eminent scientists. The ability to change the rate of growth in cancer cells by guided imagery, the effects of distant prayer on t cell count of HIV+ patients, and how blessed water can change its molecular structure, are only a few of the fascinating topics McTaggart covers in her book. Readers can learn about the power of mind-body without having to question the legitimacy of her sources.

"The Intention Experiment" is one of the best books in the genre of what is known as "intention science".

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets one thinking! 13 Jan 2009
By Sa King
All that I can say is that this book is amazing. It is essentially a description of what is possible through focussed thought. The most amazing aspect to me is that it is probably the tip of the iceberg with regard to what really is possible. It also makes one aware of how shallow and materialistic our lives have become. My suggestion to you if you are reading this review is; buy the book, open your mind and learn something really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bible on The Science of Intention 3 Feb 2007
As a qualified life coach, with a special interest in miracles, manifestation and abundance, I have read well over 30 publications on the subject. Lynne's is by far the most detailed, interesting and useful. More and more scientific evidence is emerging to support the view that we have far, far more control over our life circumstances, than we could ever think possible. Via her international network of scientists, Lynne has fully researched the world of intention and together with the splendid events and publications produced by her organisation: 'Living the Field', she will, in my opinion, go down in history as the pioneer of organised and effective group intention.

Read this masterpiece and it will change your paradigm forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Science of Helping 31 Dec 2009
This book uses the results from accredited scientific studies of telepathy, healing prayer and focussed intention to give the reader accurate information on how to construct and use helpful thoughtforms.

The accompanying information on the nature of energy and the way thought waves seem to interact with the Universal Energy Field is similarly sourced from professional studies and projects in the area of Quantum Physics.

I started to use the instructions straight away and am beginning to glimpse the potential for changing our reality by these means. Excellent stuff !!!

The long-running paradigm of good intentions paving the road to hell has been brilliantly overturned by investigative journalist Lynne McTaggart's new book, THE INTENTION EXPERIMENT. McTaggart provides dazzling evidence of the spectacular power of intentions from a wide variety of peer-reviewed, statistically significant research reports as she takes us on a tour of cutting-edge research currently underway in the relatively new field of consciousness. One of the challenges of studying the mind's effect on matter is that intention demonstrates variable effects depending on the state of the host and the time, place, and manner by which it is initiated, which McTaggart addresses by presenting a number of ways that various types of intentions produce different effects, as well as ways to help ensure better outcomes.

THE INTENTION EXPERIMENT takes us on a journey to discover what, exactly, is meant by 'intention,' and how we can produce results we'll most appreciate. Whereas seasoned meditators can demonstrate remarkable command over their physical processes and remotely influence others, McTaggart describes how anyone can learn to achieve noticeable results. The key to achieving an effective state of intentionality lies in powering up, reaching a state of peak intensity, developing mindfulness, merging with what is to be influenced, being compassionate, and specifically stating an intention. When we follow these instructions after reading a thorough overview of relevant research, we can find it a lot easier to believe that it may be possible for us to send our intentions to far-off places and times.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting experiment 9 July 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book explains the method behind using "The Secret", but it's mainly about a lot of experiments that were done by the author and others. The results are fascinating, and definitely increase one's confidence in what you might call mind over matter (or even magic in the sense of creating miracles in real life, not conjuring). Very interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good follow-up to her Best-seller 18 Sep 2008
Yet more evidence that we live in a 'field' (grid, bubble, whatever!) of consciousness, and consistent with quantum physics; our minds (our intentions) are creating reality: indeed, all our thoughts are doing this whether being scattered unconsciously or channeled intentionally.
