Manifesting While Staying at Home

"You don't have to go anywhere," he said. My first mentor, BJ and I were having our morning Kona coffee on his lanai overlooking the west coast of the Big Island. "Once you get good at manifesting by using the Law of Attraction, everything will just come to you - if you believe it."

I looked at him skeptically. This was crazy! I'd been brought up to believe that I had to go out and work hard and apply a lot of effort to get what I want. As if to know what I was thinking, he went on, "Of course, there's nothing wrong with working hard in order to get things to come to you, but again, once you get proficient at manifesting, you won't do that anymore and you won't have to go anywhere unless you want to. Things will just come to you from seemingly out of nowhere."

That conversation took place over 40 years ago in the Kona rainforest, and from that point on I decided to overcome my doubts and my childhood programming and believe that everything I needed would come to me by practicing the Law of Attraction. (Nowadays we Intenders call it the Intention Process and it involves us getting up every morning and saying our gratitudes and intentions (or prayers or affirmations), and including that the Highest Good is served for everyone concerned.) As a result, I've never taken a full-time job in my life. I simply trusted that everything I intended would be there for me in the moment I needed it. Oh, to be sure, I haven’t just sat around and done nothing for 40 years. I've kept busy doing what I love to do: farming, writing books, webmastering, community-making, etc.

Currently, I'm restoring a 50 year old houseboat that requires constant attention, although I don't stress over it because it's a labor of love, as well. And I'm still using the Law of Attraction / Intention Process to have things come to me. For instance, when I realized I needed a new plumbing system throughout the boat, a royalty check came in the mail from a publisher I hadn’t heard from in awhile. When I needed to replace the old smelly carpeting, my friendly neighbor gave me his leftover vinyl flooring strips that fit perfectly in the boat. When I needed help lifting a rattan couch up to the top deck, two teenage boys happened by at that moment and did it for me.

I didn't go out of my way at anytime and everything came to me, just like it always has. Because i believed that it would.

So. . . in these challenging times we’re going through, people are being asked to stay home because of a "contagious pandemic" and we aren't as able to go out to the store and buy everything we're accustomed to buying. Nor are we able to go to work because of the current restrictions. But that doesn't mean we have to sit there and go without the things we need. In fact, this recent sickness provides us with the perfect opportunities to sharpen our manifesting skills.

Just like BJ told me in the Hawaiian rainforest long ago - and just like I've done throughout the whole of my adult life - we can manifest whatever we need if we take heart, keep moving forward, suspend our doubts and say our intentions daily. Then, all we have to do is trust in the Law of Attraction / Intention Process and be open to receive. From that point on, we won't need to go anywhere. Everything will come to us, pandemic or no pandemic, if we believe that it will.

Wellness and Our Agreement

Opportunities are constantly presenting themselves to us. While many hold the promise of good things to come, others hold the portent of bringing situations into their lives they wish would have never come their way. That is why we serve ourselves well by strengthening our attention muscle so we can catch those pesky thoughts and beliefs that don't serve us before they gain momentum and manifest in our outer world.

One of the areas where we can make a big difference in how our future unfolds revolves around who and what we agree with. When someone brings up an idea and looks to us to see if we are in agreement with it, we must be very careful about how we act or react to their idea. If we nod our head or agree, even in the slightest way, we give life to that idea and create an opening for it to play itself out in our daily experiences.

Sickness agreements are among the most detrimental for us to entertain. If we lend our agreement to the thought that a sickness exists and that we could possibly catch it, we place ourself in great peril, peril which we could have easily avoided if we would only have withheld our agreement from it.

The Law of Sickness Attraction is exactly the same as The Law of Attraction. Whatever we are putting our attention on is what we can expect to see manifest in our future experience. Our thoughts create our world whether they are sickness thoughts or wellness thoughts. Which one will you keep your attention on?

Think about what you do want,
not about what you don't want.

On Contagion / Patrick's Story

I don't normally have houseguests, but last month I had a close friend come by. Patrick and I always enjoy visiting with each other, although on this visit he arrived with a persistent cough. Now I must tell you that in the old days, before I learned to mentally combat these issues, I would have been very concerned about "catching" his cough. On this occasion, however, I was able to welcome Patrick and invite him to stay as long as he liked because I've learned to handle these kinds of things differently.

Nowadays, I see these situations as opportunities to sharpen my vigilance at watching my thoughts. In fact, Patrick gave me many such opportunities over the course of his visit because every time he went through a heavy coughing spell, I'd always notice a nagging voice in my head, saying, "You could catch his cough. You know how contagious it is. Don't get too close to him," and on and on. And every time I would hear these ugly voices, without exception, I emphatically applied the opposite thought, telling myself, "Get behind me! I'm fine! I'm in perfect health!" and so forth. And you know what? It worked beautifully. Pat and I had a great week together, and as I write this, I'm in excellent health because I didn't listen to the nagging, sickness-producing voices that came into my mind. Instead, I stood up, steadfast and strong, for my own natural wellness.

Whatever we put our attention on
that's what we're becoming.
We can put our attention on worst-case scenarios
or we can envision the best possible outcomes imaginable. The one we put the most attention on is the one we'll get.

Contagion is a belief we learned when we were very young, but now it's time for those of us who are beginning to understand that our thoughts create our future experiences to unlearn some of our old limited thinking habits and to stand firm for positive outcomes only. That's the way we transmute unwanted experiences and keep them from coming into our lives. We remain healthy by staying on the positive side of every belief that comes into our mind.
(Excerpted from The Highest Good Handbook by Tony Burroughs)

The Law of Agreement Explained

A lot of people nowadays are talking about the Law of Attraction and the Law of Allowing. But there is another Law which also begins with the letter A that is just as important - and yet, we in The Intenders are among the very few who are even talking about it. It's called the Law of Agreement and, simply put, it says, Agreement reinforces reality. Said another way, Your agreement with any belief or idea makes it stronger.

We can easily see how this works by looking at an example. If, for instance, one person believes it's a good idea for everyone to go jump off a cliff, well, then it's not very likely to happen. However, what if one hundred people agree that it's a good idea to jump off a cliff? Then the idea gets a little stronger. Taken a step further, if enough people - say 100,000 people - agree that cliff jumping is a great idea, pretty soon we're all standing in line at the edge of a cliff waiting for our turn to jump.

It gets even more interesting when we stop to consider that every belief system we have exists only because we agree on it. Indeed, our agreements are the building blocks of our realities; they are the very foundation upon which our beliefs are built. Not one belief, large or small, would exist for long without our agreement to it. . .

You see, we all have the option, at any given moment, to agree with what's going on and thus add to it - or to withhold our agreement, and therefore stop reinforcing a reality or system of beliefs that's run its course. Put still another way, your agreement is your point of power, and you can add to or weaken any idea or commonly held belief simply by making a choice. We have with us, in each moment of our lives, the ability to discern - to decide whether something is working for us or not - and to choose to agree with it and make it stronger, or to say, "Hey, I don't think it's such a good idea for us to jump off that cliff. In fact, cliff jumping never really got us anywhere in the past, and it doesn't look remotely like it's going to give us the results we're looking for in the future. I think I'll pass!"

Intenders Cybercircles

Now that people are being kept apart from one another in larger groups, one of the best ways to continue manifesting in your Intention Circles is through our Intenders Cybercircles. Although we started out using Google Hangouts as our vehicle of choice, it has largely been set aside nowadays in favor of Zoom and Zoom is so easy to use and it provides us with the perfect platform for sharing our intentions and gratitudes with our fellow Intenders - and you can manifest just as quickly in a Cybercircle as you can in a real-life Intention Circle. Here are 3 Cybercircles for you to check out:

Gayle in Welatka, FL at 386-546-0631 and (Meets on
Alma in Hampton, VA at 757-329-8645 and (Meets on Zoom)

Starting an Intenders Circle?
You can use our Intention Circle Guidelines Poster

We're always intending to provide you with powerful tools so that you can personally become more proficient at manifesting your dreams and desires. At the same time, it's been our intention to make things easier for you to take part in an Intention Circle.

This Intenders Circle Guidelines and Information sheet was created awhile back by Cincinnati Intenders, Liz Loring and Vicki Friend. We used it when we had our workshop there last summer and it worked so well that we decided to make it available to all of our Intenders Circles. It has been updated and is especially helpful when you are starting a new Intention Circle or when you have newcomers who don't know the order of things to say when it is their turn to share their intentions and gratitudes. We have found that this free Guidelines Sheet streamlines not only the saying of your intentions, but it also streamlines your ability to manifest the things you want in your personal life. It is purposely designed to help you become a Mighty Manifestor as quickly as possible.

You can click on the image of this Intenders Circle Guidelines below to download it. Then, you can print it out and make copies for your group. It can also be downloaded from our Intenders Circle page at
