There is a great deal of talk today about the power of the mind, how we can influence things around us and so on. There are also a lot of people who do not believe and many who find it hard to believe enough to actually put things into action. We know that if we think positive, various situations will improve, but doing this sometimes seems impossible. The aim of the Intention Experiment is to prove scientifically that many people thinking positively, or praying about the same issue can indeed have a positive effect. They unite people across the world to take part in specific projects which are studied by leading scientists.
The projects are very positive issues, the most recent one being the Peace Intention Experiment. This was started on 14th September and involved over 7000 people worldwide sending positive thoughts to the particular area where peace is required. This impetus for this research was the results of various Transcendental Meditation studies which showed that meditating on specific areas lowered the crime rate. The details of the area is currently only available to people who have registered to take part. Positive thoughts were sent for 10 minutes at the same time every day for a week and the results will be studied and analysed. Immediately after, those involved are asked to log in to the forum and give their opinions on what happened. The plan is to follow this with similar positive thoughts about other troubled places across the world.
The Intention Experiment was founded by Lynne McTaggart an award winning journalist and author who is best known for producing the magazine, What Doctors’ Don’t Tell You and their related range of publications. She is also a keen worker in the area of freedom of choice in natural medicine.
I would also recommend Lynne McTaggart’s book of the same name which is very comprehensive in explaining the theories and the current research that has proved the power of thoughts and intentions. They have many further plans including lowering the temperature of an ecosphere which has had its temperature artificially raised, changing the pH of polluted water, how people feel when the positive intentions are focused on them, improving the death rate in hospitals and helping children with Attention Deficit Disorder.
