This week, Life Training Online is reviewing The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent: Living the Art of Allowing, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, the twentieth of fifty-two books in the 52 Personal Development Books in 52 Weeks series.
While Esther and Jerry Hicks’ earlier book, Ask and It is Given, focused mostly on how to manifest outcomes in your life, The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent focuses more on the process of creating. They say while it’s wonderful to possess that which you want from life, even more wonderful is the process of doing so. And to them, that is the true purpose of life — to be creators.
This book is really about understanding the importance of having a deliberate intent for something you desire, while at the same time, managing your balance of Energy along the way (which I’ll explain in more detail). As stated in the intro to this week’s review, as you come to understand and effectively practice what they offer here, you’ll not only achieve your goals and desired outcomes more rapidly, but you’ll also enjoy the steps along the way — even before it’s manifested in your life.
So let’s get to it…
The Vibrational World and Emotions
To lay the foundation for the rest of this book, the authors describe how our entire reality is in effect nothing other than vibration. For example, when your eyes interpret vibration, you can see; when your ears interpret vibration, you can hear. The same holds true for our other senses (smell, touch and taste).
The authors then go to explain that each of us is made up of two parts: the you that is here in the form of your physical body (which in time dies off), and the you who is an eternal non-physical being (which is connected to the Source of all things and is who you really are). We can interpret our physical self and the physical world around us through our five senses described above. However, our ability to interpret our eternal self comes through the vibrational interpreters that we call emotions.
These emotions will give you, in every moment of the day, an indication of the vibrational relationship between the non-physical you and the physical you.
When these two parts are in vibrational harmony or alignment, the result is that you feel more alive. You feel a sense of passion, love, clarity, appreciation, vitality, and enthusiasm. When in this state, you are in the most optimal position to manifest your desires. It is our most natural state of being and is the optimal expression of life.
The challenge lies in constantly paying attention to your emotions. As you do so, you’ll be able to literally feel your way to your vibrational alignment with your eternal self, which as a result, allows you to become who-you-really-are.
Once you understand who-you-really-are and you consciously strive to maintain a vibrational alignment with who-you-really-are, everything else in life will fall into alignment.
The Balancing Game
Now we come to the term Balancing Energy. What is meant by this is that when you deliberately reach for thoughts that cause your two vibrational points (your physical and eternal self) to align, you are then in a state of balanced energy. Again, this is where you experience clarity, vitality, eagerness, physical wellness, abundance in all things you consider to be good, and an exuberant state of joy. When you feel these things, you know that you are in alignment and in the natural state of who-you-really-are.
