Forgiving others is essential for spiritual growth. Your experience of someone who has hurt you, while painful, is now nothing more that a thought or feeling that you carry around. These thoughts of resentment, anger, and hatred represent slow, debilitating energies that will dis-empower you if you continue to let these thoughts occupy space in your head. If you could release them, you would know more peace.
Below I share how to forgive someone who has hurt you in 15 steps:
Step 1: Move On to the Next Act
Your past history and all of your hurts are no longer here in your physical reality. Don’t allow them to be here in your mind, muddying your present moments. Your life is like a play with several acts. Some of the characters who enter have short roles to play, others, much larger. Some are villains and others are good guys. But all of them are necessary, otherwise they wouldn’t be in the play. Continue Reading
Dr. Wayne Dyer has always believed in following your passionate life purpose. He himself took a big chance to find his life purpose when he left his tenured teaching position at St. John’s University in New York to spend his time pitching his first book—Your Erroneous Zones. Here’s the story of that risky move as he explains it in his memoir, I Can See Clearly Now:
New York, 1977
My world has changed dramatically since I made the decision to go it alone as a self-employed writer. I have spent the past year working full-time to promote my first book for the general public, Your Erroneous Zones.
On a joint conference call with my agent, Artie Pine, and my editor, Paul Fargis, I am told that there are two pieces of news that are going to blow me away. Continue Reading
This month you’ll have a chance to check out my friend Jorge Cruise’s new book Stubborn Fat Gone: Discover Think Fit™ to Turn Off Stress and Lose 1.5 Lbs. Every Day. Jorge is the creator of one of my favorite books on healthy eating—The Belly Fat Cure. Some years back when I had just published, Excuses Begone! and traveled around the country lecturing on how to let go of self-defeating thinking habits, I first encountered the wisdom of The Belly Fat Cure. It was no accident, my friends, and I thank the Universe for the chance I had to test the Excuses Begone! paradigm in my own life.
The fact is we can do this with anything—from belly fat to any excuse-bound situation that is blocking our health and/or happiness. Once I decided to believe that I could release the weight that had accumulated around my middle, I let it go. As Henry Ford said, “Whether you believe you can or believe you can’t, you’re right.” Why not believe you can? How many of us tell ourselves Continue Reading
Genius is a potential that lives within you and every other human being. You have many moments of genius in your lifetime. These are the times when you have a uniquely brilliant idea and implement it even if only you are aware of how fantastic it is. Perhaps you created something absolutely astonishing and you even amazed yourself. Then there are the moments when you make exactly the right shot in a round of golf or a tennis match and you realize with immense pleasure what you’ve just accomplished. You are a genius.
“Everyone is born a genius, but the process of living de-geniuses them.” — Buckminster Fuller
There is no such thing as luck or accidents in this purposeful universe. Not only is everything connected to everything else, but no one is excluded from the universal Source called intention. And genius, since it’s a characteristic of the universal Source, must be universal, which means that it’s Continue Reading
One of things I wanted to talk about when I had my opportunity to spend an evening with Esther Hicks and the ascended masters known as Abraham was the idea of trusting yourself. Am I on the right track saying, “When you trust in yourself, you are trusting in the wisdom that created you”? Here’s what Abraham had to say: Continue Reading
My brother, Dave and I in the Orphanage
As a Veteran myself, this has always been a special day of remembrance for me. However this year I would like to pay tribute to my brother David, the recipient of the Bronze star for his extraordinary service during the most horrific years of the Vietnam war. He writes here about an incident that changed his life forever as he held the hand of a dying soldier. Dave and I were inseparable during the first decade of our lives as we moved about through a series of foster homes. I honor you, my brother, on this day where we all convey our deepest gratitude for those who served so valiantly…I love you Dave, and I salute you on this very special day.
This week I want to talk about a brand new book by my admired and revered friend, Dr. Joan Borysenko. It’s called The Plant Plus Diet Solution: Personalized Nutrition for Life. I wrote an endorsement for an earlier book of hers that couldn’t be truer today:
Wayne Dyer Continue Reading
“Joan Borysenko is the smartest woman I’ve ever known. I urge you to drink in her wisdom.” If you don’t already know the work of Dr. Joan, you’ll find this new book a fabulous introduction. Joan is an internationally known speaker in integrative medicine and the mind-body connection. She has a doctorate in cell biology from Harvard Medical School and is a licensed clinical psychologist. She’s the New York Times best-selling author of many books as well as a journalist and radio personality. And, it goes without saying that she is a great person and a great friend.”
The Plant Plus Diet Solution speaks to all of us who are trying to figure out what best serves our health in today’s brave new world of genetically modified foods, escalating health crises (obesity, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s), and contradictory Continue Reading
When I was first introduced to the mysterious practice called “Tapping” or E.F.T. (Emotional Freedom Technique), I was very much in need of some new tools for feeling better fast. I met Nick Ortner, author of The Tapping Solution and creator and executive producer of the hit documentary film of the same name, at just the right time—because, of course, there are no accidents! As I always say to you and to myself, be open to everything and attached to nothing. Put away your skepticism and give tapping a try.
Here is Nick’s story about how tapping came into his life: Continue Reading
