Teacher, blogger and creator of the Chakra Cards, this website has something for everyone to feel amazing.
When I found out that Dr. Wayne W. Dyer died, I was checking my Facebook on my lunch break in a job that I’ve just resigned from. I immediately thought, that can’t be right, he’s only 75, he’s still got work to do. I was in instant denial. I couldn’t believe it. It was like my Father or Grandfather had transitioned and my whole world shifted. I realised that I can’t be a wallflower anymore. Those teachers who had come before are starting to transition and if we don’t step up now, who will be there to offer guidance to the generations that follow? There was no conscious thought in this, for me, it just happened. Not only was his death an enormous loss of someone who I imagined would always be there, but it was a kick in the pants. It was a reminder from the universe that I need to stop making excuses. I need to step into my own light.
During the past few months I’ve had moments where I feel like I’m dying. Not a physical death, but a shedding of layers of who I think I am and his death came during one of those weeks. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has his own website where you can learn more about him www.drwaynedyer.com so I won’t waste your reading space by repeating what many of you already know. Needless to say, I wish that I had met him, but then again, by reading his books, I already did.
As a response to his death, his publisher, Hay House www.hayhouse.com released his movie, The Shift www.hayhouse.com/the-shift-movie for people to watch freely for seven days. So this morning, this is what I did. In the midst of my personal shifting this gift of a film came at the most synchronistic time. And as he says in the film “synchronicity happens when ego is disconnected”(or something like that). What happened as I watched this film, was it spoke directly to my heart. It spoke truth, my barriers that I built up were broken down and every time Wayne opened his mouth, I cried; a deep and heart-centred crying of release. It was the kick up the pants that I needed.
I implore everyone to watch it when you can, but for the benefits of this blog, these are the lessons that I learned (and was reminded of) from that film and are a wonderful legacy of Wayne’s life and teachings.
1. The concept of Dharma. That is what we are here for, to be aligned with the universe and “cosmic law and order”. Life makes itself, you just have to show up.
2. Edge God Out = Ego
3. Life: let yourself be lived by spirit. Surrender. Trust in the nature of your being, to BE.
4. Don’t ignore the calling inside you.
5. When you are authentic, you can experience bliss.
6. Don’t die with the story/song still within you. You shouldn’t have to die to get IT, to get why you’re here.
7. Motivation is from within. Get to a place where you are guided by spirit. Allow and let God.
8. How may I serve? Is THE most important question you need to ask.
9. Trust everything will happen perfectly. Whatever you are looking for will show up, prepare for it and LET IT GO!
10. Release attachments to outcomes.
For me Wayne Dyer was a friend that I could turn to when things were confused, or I was looking for answers. The books that I have of his have been carted around the country for when I needed them and they will remain so. While he has left his physical body, his presence is still here, guiding us, showing us, reminding us of what we already know, our authentic truth that we are a divine spark of light.
As I was writing this, the song “Be Here Now,” by Ray LaMontagne came on my Pandora. Ha! Synchronicity in action! Then my cat, who hates cuddles, came and sat on my lap. I think it’s about reading the signs and being fully present in the moment, in the presence of the divine in your life and being grateful for that. To start the day by saying thank you; to appreciate everything – good and bad – for showing you the way back to yourself and back to the divine, which is the ENTIRE reason that we are all here. So maybe now I can stop asking Why am I here?! I don’t have a greater purpose. I don’t have something I need to be achieving or aiming towards. I’ve been looking at it in a way that has kept me in poverty and in a profession that I have no love or passion for. My purpose, my only purpose is to be fully present in connection with divine and everything will unfold as it will. And whatever comes, I will thank it, because that is what I need to get me closer to complete PRESENCE.
Blessings to you.
Thank you Wayne Dyer, thank you Hay House.
