The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent by Esther Hicks

The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent

This leading-edge book by Esther and Jerry Hicks, who present the teachings of the nonphysical entity Abraham, is about having a deliberate intent for whatever you want in life, while at the same time balancing your energy along the way. But it’s important to note that the awareness of the need to balance your energy is much more significant than goal-setting or focusing on ultimate desires. And it is from this very important distinction that t...

Reviews The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent

  • Kyra
    There is no excuse for this one having been written, expect for those who just really needed more to read. If you are looking for a book that will help you delude yourself about the world around you, this will help. Though I recommend Ask and It is Given more for that effect, as it also gives you 22 processes to use to help you steadily change your beliefs around any subject that is bothering you, this one will help draw you into the metaphysical...

    I love these collection of books because I find myself reading them over and over to absorb the message they so strongly bestow. It's about using our Now and moving away from past deceptions that lay deep within our psyche. This book expresses clearly how to use our emotions to guide us with love and harmony and become aware of the value within each and everyone of us. The tools and techniques are repeated in this book as are the other books of H...

    I am a deliberate creator and could anything be more fun?

    My friend KT added the book to her to-read list and its concept seemed to compliment other self-help books I’ve found useful lately, which show that one way to improve your life is to “trick” your subconscious mind into believing that your life is better already. Convincing the subconscious that circumstances are good can bring improvement in those circumstances. Improving your emotions and thoughts improves your life. What makes this book ...

    It's so simple and so shaking at the same time. We're here just to enjoy ourselves and experience life? Really? I don't have to compare myself to others and feel inadequate or jealous, but can use my observations to help me figure out what I want and what I like and focus on that?? I don't have to beat myself up for not achieving whatever bar I let others set for me, but can just enjoy a life of doing and being and living with joy?? And when I do...

    “So, this leading edge book is really about understanding the importance of having a deliberate intent for an end result, while at the same time, tending to the balance of your Energy along the way. But it is much more about awareness of the balance of your Energy than it is about goal-setting or focusing on end results. And it is from this very important distinction that this book, The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent, has come forth.” “...

    I love Jerry and Esther Hicks. I am listening to this on CD and Jerry himself reads it. Esther channels several entities that call themselves Abraham. This is a follow up book to "Ask and it is Given" which had a profound positive impact on my life.The basic premise is that this life is supposed to be joyous and we can create our own reality. If we are feeling negative emotion about any situation, it is an indication that we are not in alignment ...

    This second part to the "Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent" series is really wonderful.My favorite parts are:1. The exercise where you put $100.00 in your wallet and "pretend" to buy something by visualizing it in your mind to change your relationship with money.2. The "becoming free of debt" exercise where you go through all your debts and write them down. That was very enlightening for us to do that. Then, you keep track on Excel or a ledger a...
  • Sharon
    This is an outstanding addition to the Abraham-Hicks repertoire. In this book, the Hicks' drill down further on the Art of Allowing by explaining how their concept (deliberate intent) differs from the standard concept of "allowing" (tolerating).The book contains an outstanding series of exercises and examples to help readers understand how the process works.I have mentioned before in my reviews of the Hicks' work that some people may think of thi...
  • Wendy
    This book is about mind expansion on a spiritual level, very New Age, and I wanted to like it. I didn't like, however, and I think the problem (for me) was the way it's written. It's not very "user friendly" and I suspect you need to read the authors' previous books to tune in to their vocabulary and methods. In the forward Jerry Hicks explains that the book contains words used in a way we don't normally use them, and that may be where I had my p...
  • Aaron
    It makes sense: Your intention should support your desires along with what thoughts you have toward them. You must believe in you and have faith in causes and effect. There is really only one point made in the book in which I just described. The majority of the book is repeating the same thoughts. The point (make sure your thoughts and desires match your intent) does not need to take over 200 pages. The end of the book does show you examples of r...
  • Amethyst
    Anyone interested in the law of attraction should read this book until they know it by heart, and can make it their own inner philosophy. It's one of those books that, together with a handful of similar books, can help people improve their sitations, if they want to. Dynamic principles, that go well with other philosophies.
  • Alexis
    Pretty interesting read, kind of serendipitous how I read it alongside and came into my path the same time as "The Power of Intention" both were saying basically the same thing in some somewhat different ways, but very powerful, moving stuff.

  • Waseem
    This was not bad - just an expansion of the first part of this book which was entitled "Ask and its Given" - so kinda repetitive but it did help me understand more about that first book - which at the beginning and from their earlier teachings of their work I did not appreciate or agree with as much - but I do get them more now and see the valueThis book focused more on the various thought and emotional processes one can utilise to get you in the...
  • Heidi The Reader
    If I was asked to summarize this entire book, I would boil it down to Esther's line "Reach for the thoughts that feel better."I listened to the audio book version of this and Jerry's delivery is awful. His reading is so flat and dragging. I prefer to view video tapes of the Abraham workshops because Esther is so funny and dynamic whenever the consciousness called Abraham is... should I say, upon her? In her, with her? The best part of this was th...

    MOTIVATIONAL - PERSONAL GROWTH:'caution, this is 'out there'If you can get over the disbelief about "Abraham" will find incredible wisdom in this and all books by Hicks.If Abraham does not exist...Esther is the smartest woman on the planet.The worldwide phenomena of "the secret' in 2006 espousing the ' Law of attraction' is really - in my view - based on Esther and Jerry Hicks work.I read them 15 years ago and met them 6 years ago. I wasted...
  • Orion
    I enjoyed the read, and many of the principles will be helpful to me. Im a hands on person, so did appreciate the exercises. Like some others here, the material did feel repetitive. Im assuming that's purposefully done. Science has shown that it takes approximately 30 days of repetition to form a habit. Its also the standard way we here in America seem to be taught. For myself, Ive heard, read, and seen so many negative items, that I cant see any...
  • Dana
    This book explores the idea that whatever it is we think and feel is what we create in our lives. It's inspiring and powerful. When you think negative thoughts and doubt yourself, you block the flow of receiving what you want in your life. However, when you can harness the ability to think positive thoughts and put yourself into vibrational alignment with your desires, you can speed up the process of receiving your heart's desires.Worth the read!...
  • Natasa Tovornik
    I do not know... I found Esther and Jerry quite pretentious and one of those positive thinkers and group-pshychiatrist I would never wanna talk to... there were several times when I wanted to stop reading. something got me going. and I guess it did reprogram my mind a bit. who knows. decide for yourself.
  • Tennessee O'Donnell
    I find this book to be a great reminder of how to stay focused on creating a positive life and how to deal with the challenging times.It is explained so simply that it resonates with a truth deep inside as you read it. An uplifting book that inspires and redirects you on your path.NB Warning= Best reading for open minded persons only. :-)
  • Pam
    This was an interesting book_BUT_I found it very "Cult-Like".I started to remember James "Jim" Jones and the Kool-Aide drinking,etc.I think the concept of Abraham did it for me.I finished it_but had to say,what did I just read?The book had some good points but would have been much better without the Cult-Like qualities.
  • Linda Lavid
    I read this book years ago. Since then I've read The Secret and The New Earth. This book is far more practical. Basically it discusses the power of positive thinking. Nothing new of course but explained clearly with exercises. From my own pursuits of how to live a better life, gratitude and forgiveness reigns supreme. Not always easy but life, love and light affirming.
  • Andy Nieradko
    What's great about the teachings of Abraham, as translated by Esther hicks, is that it presents a reasonable form of positive thinking. It isn't just "fake it 'til ya make it", and force yourself to be happy all the time. It's about talking yourself up the emotional scale, and using your emotions as your guidance system to help point you in the directions you want to go in life.
  • Aida Safic
    Hicks follows on understanding desire, and our intent with speaking and voicing ourselves through situations that seem to bring misunderstanding.Overall, a very useful book and definitely worth the read
  • Aleshka
    This is a great book that takes off where The Secret left off. It comes full of great techniques to help you in your journey to whatever it is that you may need. At times the books seems as little repetitive but that is the point of the book.
