Intention

Andrew Wallas
Authors:
Andrew Wallas

Intention is the seed of all change and it is the creative power that fulfils our dreams. An intention contains the DNA of manifestation and it is therefore the key to creating the life you want. Our outer world is a reflection of our inner world, and so the only way to shift reality is to start with what is inside us.According to research, 92% of new year resolutions fail by the end of the year. The only way to reverse this trend is to go deeper.This powerful book guides you through a process of practical self-enquiry that gets to the true heart of your intentions for this life. You will weed out the obstacles in the way of your wishes, such as limiting self-beliefs and the stories you currently tell about yourself. You will plant the seeds of intention with a sense of true clarity and infinite possibility, and then water them with your daily actions and care. And then all that needs to be done is to trust in the outcome and allow your intentions to grow.Intention is for anyone who wishes to align their life with their innermost wishes and tap into the most underrated power in the universe.PRAISE FOR Intention:"It is a joy to find a life-changing book that is so clearly and beautifully written. Andrew Wallas distils decades of clinical practice with wisdom and a deceptively light touch. The overall message is strong. We are each responsible for our own path to happiness, and Intention is the inspiring guidebook that can help us to find it." - Georgia Coleridge, author of The Chakra Project PRAISE FOR ANDREW WALLAS:"Intention is a superpower which when used correctly aligns us to our purpose and helps fulfil our heart's work. Andrew Wallas elegantly and generously shows us how. His approach is simple, yet it is not easy - but boy is it worth it." Emma Cannon, fertility and women's health expert, acupuncturist and author of Fertile "Andrew holds the space for you to reconnect with your inner wisdom. His skill is that he is intuitive but practical." - Financial Times, How To Spend It"Fast-tracked healing" - Vogue "Andrew Wallas has a gift for transforming stuck energy and releasing you from negative patterns" - Tatler"With easy charm and 30 years' experience as a psychotherapist, Andrew Wallas helps clients remove the obstacles standing in their way"- Vanity Fair "He has an uncanny ability to sense emotional blocks and asks penetrating questions that unearth destructive patterns of behaviour" - The Daily Mail"Amazingly honest. Incredibly insightful. For any blocks you need to uncover to be able to create the life you want - visit the Wizard" - Tanya, business woman"I have met many "spiritual" healers, guides and psychics over the years. However, none of them have managed to explain to me in terms that I understand how I can effectively blend the real or human world with this spiritual calling that I feel. I believe that I have found in you my guru / teacher that can really help me navigate this exciting journey" - Gavin, businessman"Andrew's magic on the course with other brilliant instructors is to lead you to alchemical change which is the only way to really heal and feel flow again. I have done a lot of self growth in 15 years and nothing has touched and released my deepest wounding like this."- Gina, Yoga Teacher"I have never experienced anything so connected, painful, insightful, empowering and liberating" - Carmen, Business Leader"I have a deeper connection with myself and more intimacy in all the important relationships in my life" - Vicky, Marketing Director

** SHORTLISTED FOR THE EDWARD STANFORD TRAVEL WRITING AWARD - TRAVEL MEMOIR OF THE YEAR **A lovely, civilised and transporting read, that should have all of us stepping out to meet the world with fresh eyes.' - Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall'An enticing read that makes every walk Humble describes an adventure' - Ranulph Fiennes'A beautiful and magnificent book. A paean to a simple act. I defy you to read this book and not be inspired to walk, march or hike - and as a result live a better life more connected with nature and the world around you.' - Simon Reeve'A lovely book, fast-flowing yet at every turn giving the reader pause for thought. Kate Humble makes a delightful companion, her words full of sunshine and the raw pleasure she radiates as she encounters life in its many unexpected forms.' - Benedict Allen'I've discovered that going for a daily walk has become as essential to me feeling good for the rest of the day as that first cup of tea. But I would argue that all I am doing is responding to a natural need we all have. Humans have always been migrants, the physiological urge to be nomadic is deep-rooted in all of us and perhaps because of that our brains are stimulated by walking. I solve all sorts of problems, formulate ideas, work things out to that gentle rhythm of self-propelled movement.' - Kate HumbleThinking on My Feet tells the story of Kate's walking year - shining a light on the benefits of this simple activity. Kate's inspiring narrative not only records her walks (and runs) throughout a single year, but also charts her feelings and impressions throughout - capturing the perspectives that only a journey on foot allows - and shares the outcomes: a problem solved, a mood lifted, an idea or opportunity borne. As she explores the reasons why we walk, whether for creative energy, challenge and pleasure, or therapeutic benefits, Kate's reflections and insights will encourage, motivate and spur readers into action.Also featured are Kate's walks with others who have discovered the magical, soothing effect of putting one foot in front of the other - the artist who walks to find inspiration for his next painting; the man who takes people battling with addiction to climb mountains; the woman who walked every footpath in Wales (3,700 miles) when she discovered she had cancer.This book will inspire you to change your perspective by applying walking to your daily endeavours.*PRAISE FOR THINKING ON MY FEET *'A diary of sorts, charting a year of wonderful walks through the sun, wind and rain...each entry builds an image of her life in the great outdoors...it sounds idyllic to say the least.' - Sunday Express, S Magazine'These are 365 days of inspiration to get out and, sometimes literally, smell the flowers.' - Wanderlust Magazine'Humble's book about going for a walk can inspire absolutely anyone to make a change. Because all you have to do is step outside the front door.' - Waitrose Weekend'Witty, enlightening and often startlingly profound' - Country Walking Magazine
