I've been absolutely stunned by the extraordinary outpouring of response to the 9/11 Peace
First of all, the is the stunning attendance. Thousands of people from more than 70 countries
around the globe have participated - and virtually every corner of the world is represented. Of
course, we have thousands of participants from the US (even US minor outlying islands!), Canada,
Great Britain, and every country in the European Union, from Germany and the Netherlands, to
France, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Greece, Malta and the northern Scandinavian countries (Norway,
Sweden, Finland, Denmark.).
But we have equal participation from the Middle East, with nearly every Arab country represented
in the Middle East and northern Africa: Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Qatar, Oman, Jordan,
Lebanon, Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, Eritrea, the occupied territories in Palestine and even Iraq,
plus Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Algeria, and the Sudan. Happily, although we centered on 9/11 and
a target of interest to America and the Arab nations, Israelis participated too.
Intenders came from Mexico and many countries in Central America, such as Panama, Paraguay and
Costa Rica, South America (Columbia, Brazil and Venezuela) and even many islands in the
Caribbean and Atlantic, such as Netherlands Antilles, Tobago, Aruba, Antigua, Jamaica, Trinidad
and Bermuda. Participants came from India, Sri Lanka, and also Eastern Europe countries such as
Croatia, Macedonia, Slovania, Hungary, Estonia, Romania and Russia. Other parts of Africa were
represented in Botswana, Mauritania and South Africa. We also had many participants from the Far
East: Australia and New Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore. Even
citizens of Iceland joined in.
We started on Sunday September 11, and connected virtuall with One: the Event and many other
events, such as the Bhakti Festival at Joshua Tree. So besides our formal intenders who'd
registered, we had many well wishers at live events amplifying our effect.
I have broadcast LIVE at One: the Event and through www.beautifulexchange.com every day
immediately before and after the experiment to offer updates and reactions from participants.
Although the beautifulexchange site did not show to all participants through our own web pages,
by the second day, after we called in a web broadcasting expert, the broadcasts have been
flawless. We now recommend that participants in the Intention Experiment keep open two windows
- www.intentionexperiment911.com and www.beautifulexchange.com -and first watch me and then
participate in the experiment before coming back for commentary.
Kuwaiti Peace Activist and well-known human potential specialist Salah Al-Rashed offered an
apology for the events of 9/11 and called upon all Arabs to work actively to ensure this tragedy
does not happen again. I responded with an apology for the aftermath of 9/11 and the two wars
that have resulted in the deaths, injuries, displacement and detaining of hundreds of thousands
of innocent civilians.
I made a call in my talk for everyone to become a spiritual activist for peace. Our two
apologies (both spoken in English) have been uploaded onto YouTube with Arab subtitles and seen
by tens of thousands.
If you've missed them, you can access them from the front page of the 9/11 Peace Intention
Experiment site: www.intentionexperiment911.com.
Although it may be too early to discover whether our intention has changed, participants are reported amazing experiences
before and after the daily intentions. Here are just a few of the hundreds and hundreds of comments I've received (and Dr.
Al-Rashed has received hundreds more in Arabic).
About the process itself:
Maria from the US: `I felt a connection moving in and through my heart, creating a gridlike plane connecting us all. It felt amazingly powerful to feel plugged into a community setting this same intention and forward movement. At another moment it was as if we are all sitting on any ever expanding spiral. Our combined intention was propelling the spiral forward. I could feel hearts softening and welcoming connection once again.'
Ze from the US: `It was a totally amazing, amazing experience. It was like a giant round football stadium with all these layers of people, and we were all connected and recognizing ourselves as on. And once it was noticed by all that we were one, we all turned our focus back to the countries as one unified energy force and brought the peace and love to the people of that area, flowing beautiful harmony between all.'
Simona from Romania said: `I felt waves and waves of shivers all over my body...I felt like swimming in an ocean of good will,love, hope. ..My eyes went wet and I felt to tap on my heart area...'
Megan from the US: `I felt a powerful energetic pulsing through my spine and core of my body, like healing energy that was activated and resonating with all of us who are holding this intention at the same time across the globe. Incredible!
Most experienced the feelings deepening as the days went on:
Mouâd: `Indeed I felt more energy than yesterday - it was really good.
Cathy: `The feelings in my own body felt very electrified. . . like I had a white glow around my body yesterday, with a white cylinder connecting my body (and everyone else's) to the garget area yesterday. TODAY I felt a more powerful sensation from my own body, every cell felt like it was turned on and vibrating. Same white light leaving my body and joining others and going to target, but stronger sensation from my own body today.'
Many people described out of body experiences:
Saad: `I entered a new area in my consciousness. I don't know how to explain it in mere words, nor do I know what it is! But I didn't feel my body, I wasn't a body at that very (long) moment. I then felt the collective collaboration and sympathy.'
Linda from the US: `It was like being in the total vortex of prayer energy of all that were focusing, like an out-of-body experience. Then it all stopped, exactly 10 minutes later when the screen said to, but it was a timeless place I was in.'
What the scientists say:
Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, who is measuring the emotional context of our `collective consciousness,' says he recorded the first effect on Sunday, September 11. He'll be analyzing every one of the eight days in detail after the experiment is over.
