Reading Lynne McTaggart's intention experiment - and do have misgivings about it. One thing that stands out is the directed intention is intended to work exclusively through 'BP Engineers' - and further involves visualizing actual physical properties of the well structures with which we are not familiar - and should not, imo, be focusing intention on. There might well be unintended consequences in doing so.
The Art Bell Effect and/or Mind Blast that we are putting energy into has a much different focus - that of sending healing energy to the Gulf and all living systems involved - and to raise the consciousness of all life on the planet to live in harmony and wellness going forward.
Wow... I didn't click the link. I totally agree with you, Linnea. This sounds potentially dangerous to me, as well. A too narrow focus when doing work such as this can easily backfire. I'm going to click the link and check it out. ... OK, did so now -- listened to the video she posted, too.
Yes, she's suggesting too narrow a focus, IMO. We have no idea what
may be the best
way to correct this situation. Focusing intent specifically on one possible solution, such as she suggests with the alternative/relief wells, could easily backfire. Other possible solutions that could work better are left out of this narrow range of focus. And you are right, Linnea, that this could easily cause people to attempt to visualize technicalities of which they have no real knowledge. That's potentially very dangerous in such a situation. We also don't know whose
efforts to deal with this will ultimately be most successful. It may not actually be BP that comes up with the ultimate solution. I can understand that she wants us to stop sending them our anger and negative thoughts. That isn't going to help anything, either. But to focus all our intention solely on them leaves out others who are also trying to do good in this situation.
So, I have to agree: I believe what we are doing is the safer and more solution-inclusive way of doing this.
An example comes to mind here that I'll share. Suppose you personally want to focus on bringing a love relationship into your life. Perhaps you've met someone that you think is perfect for you and want to focus on bringing that particular relationship into a fuller state of being. So, you focus your intentions solely on that person. But what you don't know is always key in such a situation. Perhaps there are things about this person, things of which you are currently unaware, that are not the best for you, yet your narrow focus draws them closer. It ends not as you had hoped, but badly, as it must. However, if your intention was simply to draw love into your life in the best way possible for all concerned, then, IF this should be the right person for you, your efforts could intensify that relationship, as you'd hoped. But, as in my example, this particular person (solution to the problem) is not what's best for you, it would not. It could, however, help to draw someone else toward you who might be your perfect partner -- because you are allowing the energy to work for the best possible solution, rather than on a narrow focus.
That's just one example of how a too-narrow focus when working with intention can backfire. Lynne's heart is in the right place, but I wish she hadn't urged her followers to be so specific.
