The Surprising Power of Intentions with Lynne McTaggart

Meet Lynne McTaggart

For more than 20 years, Lynne McTaggart, an internationally bestselling and award-winning author and journalist, has been examining the bridge between frontier science and spirituality. Lynne is mainly known for the quality of her narrative non-fiction and the depth of her research, her inspirational speaking style, and her uncompromising role as a New Thought leader and spiritual change agent. Over the years, Lynne McTaggart has been variously called a ‘metaphysical rock star’, ‘the Madonna of the Quantum World,’ ‘the Malcolm Gladwell of the New Science’, and even ‘The Dalai Mama.’ She’s consistently voted one of the world’s top 100 spiritual leaders for her groundbreaking work with consciousness and the power of thoughts. To understand more about the mechanisms behind the healing power of thoughts, Lynne has organized rigorous scientific studies called Intention Experiments, working with scientists at prestigious universities around the world. Lynne has been particularly interested in the power of group intention and its “mirror effect,” transforming recipients and reflecting back on the senders. As co-founder and editorial director of the health magazine, What Doctors Don’t Tell You, now published in 15 languages worldwide, and Get Well, the international holistic health expo, Lynne is also a tirelessly campaigns for consumer rights in health care. Her two books, The Intention Experiment and The Power of Eight can be fond on Amazon. 


If you’d like to have your mind ‘glowing’ and tap into what’s possible within your own body and mind for greater healing, past, present, and future, then this conversation is a must-listen. Lynne McTaggart is one of the leading researchers and gifted speakers to explain the greater depths of quantum physics, quantum healing, and time. This means we have the powerful ability as humans to change our well-being and destiny. 


There were so many nuggets of wisdom, and I’d highly recommend listening to this episode from start to finish. Here is a short recap to give you a sense of the breadth and depth of what Lynne covered. As always, let me know your thoughts in the You-est You Podcast Community on Facebook and take whatever resonates, and leave the rest. 

Meditation vs. Intentions

If you haven’t yet read Lynne’s two books: The Power of Eight and The Intention Experiment, get thee to Amazon and order both STAT. They will glow your mind! I asked Lynne about the difference between meditation and intentions because they can seem similar yet have profound different results. Much of Lynne’s work is around the hidden and surprising superpower of using the power of intentions for a specific desired outcome for greater healing and manifestation. In sum, meditation increases your alpha and delta brain waves. Meditation is typically a practice where you use a mantra or sit in silence. On the other hand, intentions activate the parietal lobe, and all brain waves are lowered. The right frontal lobe, the area where worry and doubt are triggered, also goes down when sending an intention. The other amazing thing about sending intentions is that this altruistic act touches both the sender and receiver, and a greater ecstatic sense of oneness occurs. Lynne shares that with sending intentions, you must focus on a thought and outcome that is highly specific. A great way to get a specific intention is to use the 5 W’s, used in journalistic writing; ask yourself ‘Who, what, where, when, why?’

Our Cells Communicate Through Frequencies

The fantastic thing to note is that we all have the most powerful healer inside of us. We’ve been living by the scientific story we’ve been told, an older Newtonian vision where separate things generate ideas in time and space. Over the past 100+ years, we’ve seen through the newer science of Quantum Physics that we’re all interconnected through energy systems, otherwise known as the zero-point field. Our thoughts are a transmitter, and our cells communicate through frequencies. Our brain is literally like a TV station transducing. We’re either giving or receiving light all the time and have the ability to focus our thoughts in a way that can move and change matter. 


Quantum Healing

We can send intentions back to heal something in our past, and we can also do this in the future. In part, it’s understanding that time is not as we think and that it is not linear. You can send thoughts to make people better (including yourself), and Lynne McTaggart shows this scientifically in many of her books, but especially in The Intention Experiment and The Power of Eight. Understanding your own inner power can help you take back your power to heal from within. In this way, Lynne invites us all to be spiritual activists in which we can become more connected to our own natural inner healing powers and that of our society.

Final Thoughts

Lynne McTaggart enlilghtens us with how with the power of intentions we can heal both others and ourselves. That time and distance are not barriers to the healing intentions once set in motion.
