There are some very cool experiments taking place all across the world to study the power of intention. Lynne McTaggart (author of The Intention Experiment) and her colleagues are conducting web-based experiments. You can participate by going to the website - www.intentionexperiment.com - and joining. McTaggart has gathered prestigious physicists, psychologists, and other scientists to run the experiments.
The first few experiments were designed to see of the biophoton emissions (tiny amount of light emitted from living things) could be altered by intention. The pilot experiment had 15 experienced meditators sending positive intention to 4 types of targets: 2 types of algae, a jade plant, and a human volunteer. The results showed that the light in these targets was profoundly altered! The intentions sent by the meditators changed the targets.
The next experiment involved 400 conference attendees in London sending intentions to increase the light emissions of a geranium leaf located at the University of Arizona. These results were also highly significant and could be observed by special photography.
I am very impressed with these results and the other experiments that McTaggart and her crew are carrying out. The best part is that anyone can get involved. You can join in and help make history. You can also carry out your own personal intention experiments. Hold the intention that you will get a great parking space when you go to the mall. Hold the intention that someone you haven't heard from in a long time will call you. Have fun with it!
