Iccha-shakti is a Sanskrit term translating to "will-power". It is used as a technical subdivision of Shakti in Shaktism.

Helena Petrona Blavatsky in her The Secret Doctrine (1888) also introduces the concept of "Itcha Shakti":

"Its most ordinary manifestation is the generation of certain nerve currents which set in motion such muscles as are required for the accomplishment of the desired object".[1]
