I know there are many posts about Wayne Dyer dying, but I wanted to say Thank you. I know he is listening and seeing all the well wishes, the blessings, the tears, the memories, the blessed gifts of thanks and I need to be among the congregation that sings praise and appreciation. Thank you Wayne.
I had not heard of Wayne Dyer until I received a white elephant gift during a Christmas auction. It was suppose to be a joke, but to me I was willing to watch a Dvd called “Inspiration” Why not?? I was a seeker and this sounded amazing. That Dvd got me hooked on anything Wayne Dyer. I have LOVED everything he has done over the many years. I read his children’s books to my daughter as she has been growing, I was an avid “The Shift” dvd believer & shared it with many, I listened to his podcasts every single day and dreamed of going on a cruise with him.
He is light and who doesn’t want to learn all they can from someone like Wayne. Not to mention he lived in Hawaii.
What a gift to this world: Wayne’s life is full of goodness and gifts that he has shared with the world. He was known as the ‘Father of Motivation”, He did numerous PBS specials. He did a movie that he was so proud of he wished over 10 million people would see. If you haven’t seen “The Shift”, which was later renamed, “From Ambition to Meaning,” I would suggest you see it. It is a great movie. He has also written 30+ books, including 5 children’s books. His life has been a great gift.
Some fun facts you may not have known about Wayne: He is the father of 8. His favorite movies are Deja Vu by Henry Jaglom (said he had seen it about 50 times) and Brother Sun, Sister Moon, the story of St. Francis of Assisi (whom he truly admired). *taken from Gaiam interview He has been on thousands of radio/talk shows, including The Tonight Show and Phil Donahue show, Oprah, Ellen (who was such a fan of his that she had him officiate her wedding). He was born in Detroit.
10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace by Wayne:
#1 Have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing. Your attachments are the source of all your problems. The need to be right, to possess someone or something, to win at all costs, to be viewed by others as superior—these are all attachments. The open mind resists these attachments and consequently experiences inner peace and success.
#2 Don’t die with your music still in you. That music that you hear inside of you urging you to take risks and follow your dreams is your intuitive connection to the purpose in your heart since birth.
#3 You can’t give away what you don’t have. By changing your inner thoughts to the higher frequencies of love, harmony, kindness, peace and joy, you’ll attract more of the same, and you’ll have those higher energies to give away.
#4 Embrace silence. Silence reduces fatigue and allows you to experience your own creative juices.
#5 Give up your personal history.
#6 You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it. Your thoughts are the source of virtually everything in your life.
#7 There are no justified resentments. Anytime you are filled with resentment, you are turning the controls of your emotional life over to others to manipulate.
#8 Treat yourself as if you already are what you’d like to be. From thoughts to feelings to actions, they will react affirmatively when you stay inspired and get out in front of yourself in ways that are consistent with what you want to become…Whether you think this is possible or impossible, either way you’ll be right.
#9 Treasure your divinity. You are “a piece of the divine intelligence that supports everything.”
#10 Wisdom is avoiding all thoughts that weaken you.
