In honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I’d like everyone to have fun with me by carrying out a special personal Intention Experiment.
As you know, I always refer to personal manifestation as an ‘experiment’. When trying out your own personal Intention Experiments, I always recommend that you select a goal that has never happened to you but that you would like to have happen. If you choose something that seldom occurs or is particularly unlikely, if it does come to pass it is more likely to be the result of your intention.
For many women, the something that never or almost never happens in their lives is receiving flowers from their partner – even on Valentine’s Day.
So today is a great day for us to share a personal experiment. If your partner never sends you flowers, why not set an intention for him to do so?
And as it's a Leap Year, all you men out there – send an intention to receive flowers (or chocolates) from your partners, too.
At some time convenient time today, Power Up and then send the following intention for 10 minutes. If you can do it at 5 pm GMT, with us, so much the better. Here’s the intention and other time zones around the world:
My intention is for my partner to buy me flowers for Valentine’s Day.
Or. . .
My intention is for my partner to buy me chocolates for Valentine’s Day.
Other Time Zones
12 noon US/Eastern
11 am US/Central
10 am Canada/Mountain
9 am US/Pacific
7 am US/Hawaii
6 pm Western Europe
4 am Saturday Australia/Sydney
Please write in with your results here.
If you always receive flowers or chocolates, set another intention — again, something that never happens. Here are a few suggestions:

  • have your wife or partner sit down and watch a football match with you (if she usually refuses to do so)
  • have your child make his or her bed
  • have the boorish neighbour who never gives you the time of day start a cheery conversation with you
  • get someone who can’t stand you at work to say hello and start up a conversation.

Remember, you should choose one single event to change — something where change can be easily quantified and can probably be attributed to your thoughts.
Share your experiences with us tomorrow by writing in here.
Does this kind of intention work?
We know for certain is that intention has generated success under controlled experimental laboratory conditions, and that they are widely used by athletes and also the peoples of native cultures, who are able to effect extraordinary change in their lives.
What you and I are learning together is how far we can take them in our lives. Your efforts today, in effect, are part of our ongoing experiments.
But two readers wrote in about how their flower intentions were extraordinarily successful.
Jean (not her real name) who lives in England, wrote to say that her husband never gives her flowers anymore. One day they were standing in line at a garden center and as she took in all the beautiful plants surrounding her, she remembered my suggestion.
Right then and there, she sent a silent intention for her husband to bring her flowers. Suddenly he left the line and tore off somewhere. When he returned, he was carrying an enormous blooming geranium plant. ‘I just had this sudden urge to buy you this,’ he said sheepishly. ‘It was like a voice in my head telling me to do this.’
An American I’ll call Sandra complained to me in one of my weekend workshops that her partner, loving though he was in every other way, never gave her flowers. So I suggested that she set an intention for this to happen.
She emailed me later: “You won’t believe it. As soon as I got home, he opened the door with a bouquet of red roses in his hand.’
Don’t forget: write in and tell us what happened with your intention today.
