An Amazing Hawaiian Manifestation

\

\ Back in the 1980s, the lava flow from the southeast rift of Kilauea Volcano on the island of Hawaii poured over the magnificent Queen's Bath, destroying it entirely. One of the Earth's most beautiful secrets was gone forever. I used to play there in my youth, often having this lush, clear swimming hole all to myself.
\
\ Now, all you see is barren lava - except for one unusual area that stands out in the middle of the grey-black lava fields. Directly uphill from where the Queen's Bath used to be is a grove of tall palm trees and an arrangement of rocks that the Hawaiians call a Heiau (HAY'-E-OW). One cannot help but notice it because there is no way it should be there. The lava flow is over a mile wide and nothing survived except for the Heiau.
\
\ The Hawaiians tell stories about how the Kahunas intervened with Madame Pele, the Goddess of the Volcano, and she spared this sacred place where so many prayers had been infused into the rocks in the past. Like the parting of the Red Sea, the river of approaching lava split in two just a few yards above the Heiau and came back together when it had passed, missing the edges by only a few inches in places.\ \ This sacred Heiau reminds me of what we need to do nowadays while the messages from the mainstream media go through their changes. As the flow of information runs its chaotic course, most people are believing in it and are being carried away or are forced to relocate or rebuild their lives in its wake. What with unstable money supplies, property values plummeting, wars, bailouts, and sicknesses, it appears that there is no place to go to keep from being run over.
\
\ In truth, however, there are numerous places of refuge where we can retain our peace of mind in these insane times. Indeed, the consensus reality - the one that is constantly being pumped into us by the media - is but one reality out of an infinite number of realities we can choose to believe in. We can keep our attention on it, or we can put our attention on another more comfortable, fulfilling reality. Whatever we place our attention on is what we will create.
\
\ As Intenders of the Highest Good, and as Lightworkers who are here to set an example for others who are beginning to wake up to their innate power, we must be like the Kahunas who prayed/intended and stood strong in the knowing that their beloved Heiau would be spared. We, too, are now being called to stand strong in our knowing that alternatives to living wedded to the mainstream reality exist. We can sharpen our creative skills and learn to Live by Manifesting. In this way, as the value of money diminishes, and as our comfort zones are being assaulted from all directions, those who are manifesting a new paradigm - a new way of life - will be like the Kahunas, standing tall and strong in the knowing that their lives remain abundant and untouched by the ever encroaching flow of the mainstream media.

Shoes on the Mall

\

Here is a powerful letter we received from Intender Logan Williams. Logan is a student in Reston, Virginia.
\
\ "A friend suggested that I read The Code and I completed it in 2 days. It was just what I needed. I am working on a project that feels so much bigger than myself and I need to get out of the way.
\
\ Last week my International Relations class started a new project. This time, we will collect 400,000 shoes to put on the National Mall. Empty, bodiless shoes, each representing one person killed in the genocide in Darfur. My hope is that the image will be hard to ignore. My hope is the impact will last in people's minds and in their hearts.
\
\ My intention here is not just to illustrate a human terror. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." My intention is that every pair of shoes donated, mailed, delivered, and hand placed on the Mall will infuse this dark reality with light, love, and knowledge. Knowledge alone is its own light. The mindful intention of so many people around the world is its own light. Their purposeful action is its own love.
\
\ I am asking for your help. We need your contacts and your far reach around the nation. Could you help us get the word out that we need shoes? We need lots and lots of shoes. They can be in any condition, for any age: sandals, boots, and baby shoes. Any shoes but they need to be in pairs. Please let everyone know that after the rally, all the shoes will be donated to homeless shelters throughout the United States. You can find out more information at www.shoesonthemall.com.
\
\ Thank you for your support and help.
\ Logan

\ The Code is Printed in Spanish

\

\ Three days ago our Office Manager, Vicki Harding, called and said that we had just received a package from our publisher, Weiser Books. In it were three copies of The Code: 10 Intentions for a Better World, beautifully bound and printed in Spanish. What a surprise! We knew that the rights for The Code had been picked up in several languages, but we didn't have the slightest idea that it was already on the presses. We'll keep you posted in future newsletters about how you can order copies of The Code for your Spanish speaking friends.

Our Electronic Press Kit (EPK)

\

Recently, Intenders author, Tony Burroughs, was signed to be the Keynote Speaker for the American Massage Therapists National Convention in Orlando, Florida on September 24th of this year. A nice by-product of preparing for this project was that Tony has now completed an Electronic Press Kit that can be easily downloaded from our web site. If you or anyone you know is interested in having Tony come and speak to your group, now you can go to http://www.intenders.com/PressRoom.html and download his EPK.

Our Start Your Own Community Package

\

\ \ For us to create a world of fulfillment, peace, and comfort for ourselves, we must begin to come together. The days of our separating ourselves from one another have run their course and now people are turning to community to help themselves become more empowered. There is strength in numbers, and the more people you can get to align with you and your intentions, the quicker and easier those intentions will manifest!
\
\ The Intenders Start Your Own Community Package is one of the best tools for you and your friends to use to come together and enhance your skills at manifesting. As one of our bestsellers, it contains 1 copy of The Intention Process DVD (which shows you how we do our Intenders Circle), and 10 copies of our popular Intenders Handbook, which has now sold over 60,000 copies on its own. Regardless of what you choose to call your group, or what guidelines you agree upon, this Kit makes it easy for you to start your own community.

\ Coming Soon - The New Interactive Intenders Website

\

\ \ Our Intenders homepage will be changing soon. We have realized that the wave of the future for communities is to become more interactive. In the past, most web sites have been a one-way communication experience, but now, with the advent of MySpace and Facebook, the technology is available for communities to make it easy for their members to connect with each other as well as to connect with the people who started the community.
\
\ Our intention is to design an easy-to-use interface so you can set up your own profile, create your own unique image, and allow others to know more about who they're interacting with. Intenders community members will also be able to have a voice for their own intentions, gratitudes, opinions, and helpful gentle coaching. We will also have daily intentions that you can align with, and much, much more.
\
\ Since we are new to this, we would appreciate your input and help. If you have any ideas about how we can set up our Intenders Social Network or if there are any features you would like us to include, please email Nicky Funke, our Highest Good Project Coordinator, at [nicky@intenders.com]

\ A Word of Encouragement from Our Friend, Lee Ching

\

\

Oftentimes the changes that you are forced to go through
\ are put there so you will remember what it is like
\ to be at the crest of the hill
\ and excited again about what's on the other side.
\ It's about getting out of your continuous comfort zone.
