This Post Is for…
I am assuming you are here because you have read the course description for the latest “The Power of Eight Intention Masterclass” and want to know what it would be like before you sign up.
If you have not, Lynne teaches this online course every year and she updates the contents with her growing knowledge and experiences. So instead of linking you to the class page, visit Lynne’s site, signup for the newsletter or watch for early-bird discount near the end of the year.
Before you go on, please keep in mind these are my own experiences and opinions, know that you might have a very different experience.
First, Learn The Basics with Lynne
Every week of the 6 weeks when Lynne teaches live, you will learn the science and the basics of intending and practice with randomly assigned classmates.
[Advice] Don’t get frustrated or discourage if you can’t get the results like some. Just keep practicing, you need time to learn the skills and to accept and recognize that you, too, have those amazing abilities. I thought I didn’t learn much the first time through but now that I have done it a second time, I see I was building on my efforts back then.
[Advice] If you are paired with someone you click with be sure to find a way to contact each other so you’d have a practice partner before the yearlong groups are assigned. Lynne creates a FB group for each year, usually that would be the place to search if you didn’t get a chance to exchange info during the class.
The Best Starts After The Masterclass Ends
For me, the yearlong group experiment is why the tuition is worth every penny.
After the 6 lectures, Lynne and her team will do their best to assign 10-12 people into a group so there is a better chance of having 8 members making it to each meeting.
Lynne will ask for a monthly report to check your progress until about 12 months after the first lecture. So if your group starts meeting quickly, you would get about 10 months.
From Lynne’s experience, 8 works the best, you can learn more from her book The Power of Eight: Harnessing the Miraculous Energies of a Small Group to Heal Others, Your Life, and the World.
My first time through the class, we were left with 3 people at the end, though we still saw some results, this group did not meet again after the year ended.
It was a good thing though, I was not at a very good place mentally and physically. I needed a break after a year of not missing a single meeting.
Second Time Is The Charm
After making some life changes, I was slowly getting better. When Lynne’s early-bird offer came, I decided to try again. This time, I connected with a member soon after the group assignment. And before the first group meeting, two of us intended for a group with wonderful members to grow and learn with. And it worked!
We were one of the groups that started regular meeting quickly. Even with privacy and technical concerns, everyone was gamed and did what one could to learn the secured social media and online meeting platforms.
Our Group of Love And Light
Our members are supportive, forward moving, kind, easy to work with, highly enlightened, intelligent, and humorous, I can go on for a while here. Every week, together, by intending and problem solving (adjusting the intention statements to be more effective), we bonded as a circle of love and light. I am proud to say we have pretty good results in helping ourselves and others this year.
Thanks to my group mates, I am happier, more confident, and has regained most of the energy and health I used to have. And after years of asking for an answer, I figured out a firm new direction to go as a writer but without the stress and pressure I felt. Not all the results came directly from specific intentions but 100% brought to me by my group mates!
With them, I can speak freely and not worry about sounding crazy or silly. It’s a great feeling to find this many like minded people and be with them every week. At the end of the year and there were still 7-8 participants every week. There were people who dropped off or switched earlier on but new members just fit right in. It is not a coincident who came to be in our group.
[Advice] To get most out of the class, prepare to commit to attend the group meetings for the whole year. If you can’t do that and still want to try, perhaps Lynne’s live, in-person Intention Workshops would be a better choice.
Have Goals, Not Expectations
Having solid reasons for taking this class would keep you on track as you intend during the year. They are also a good way to track your progress.
Not having any expectation about the class might bring you many unexpected gifts by not setting limits to what may come your way.
Be Kind & Have Patience
You may experience technical/admin issues during the year, remember that Lynne and her team are dealing with a large group of people, know that they always try to provide us as best as they are able.
Giving by Receiving
Like me, most people find it hard to receive, through both of my groups, I leaned that receiving is also an important part of intending.
Being a good receiver in general, it could be as simple as accepting a compliment with grace, allows you to sync up better with the receivers of your intentions which helps you deliver your gifts with better results. At the same time, there is a better chance for your own intention to manifest since you are better prepared to receive.
My Intention for You
Whether you end up taking the course or not, be like a Jedi, as I feel sometimes when practicing the art of intending, May The Force Be with You!
Thanks! That’s really helpful. Just have a few hours left to decide whether to sign up – it’s a big chunk of money. I think what you’ve particularly highlighted for me are the inevitable aspects that don’t always work as you hope – like people dropping out and perhaps not having the same commitment. Hmm. I’m still considering…
Anne, thank you for the feedback! It has been a while since I took the class, hopefully the format is still similar though I am sure the contents have been updated. More people are now in the light so perhaps it would be easier to keep a group together. Wishing you more fun and fulfilling time whatever you choose to do from here on out!
