Lynne McTaggart, author of the international bestseller The Field, has paved a new road for scientific research with the release of her latest book, The Intention Experiment. This book is truly the first of its kind in that readers are invited to participate in a group of ongoing, world-wide experiments to help determine just how powerful our thoughts really are. The book doesn’t really end; instead it calls you to action in a way that no other book has ever attempted.
Before imploring the reader to participate in these ongoing experiments, which are monitored and documented on McTaggart’s website, she provides an enormous amount of detailed information regarding related research studies, involving everything from plant-life to humans. If you’ve ever wondered if there really is proof that our thoughts can affect our reality, this book is a great place to start.
At first, we felt her detailed account — what seemed to be a thorough explanation of every possible study having anything to do with thoughts or intent that was ever conducted — was somewhat excessive. It makes up quite a chunk of the book. However, after reading through to the end, it became understandable why McTaggart chose to document all of this information in one place prior to describing the nature of her current experiments. The huge amount of previously documented research lends credence to the theory that our thoughts and our intent can change things, which makes the fact that we can then participate in experiments ourselves to further such research that much more exciting.
McTaggart provides specific exercises in the book to help you become more grounded and focused, and thus more effective when using your thoughts and intent, both in your own life and in the experiments should you choose to participate in them. The exercises are practical and easy to understand and implement.
All in all, we were impressed by The Intention Experiment. We found it insightful and innovative, and would recommend it for anyone interested in the scientific side of our consciousness.
