5 Astounding Recollections Of Heaven From Children

Editor’s Note: We are all deeply saddened by the passing of Dr.Wayne Dyer on August 30th, 2015. Below is an excerpt from Wayne’s most recent book, Memories of Heaven, which illustrates perfectly his belief in far more than just this earthly experience.

I have enjoyed a lifetime love affair with children, particularly newborns, infants, and toddlers. If a baby is in the room, it’s almost as if there is a magnetic connection that draws my attention and I must make contact. Being the father of eight children, I have spent countless hours simply gazing into the eyes of a brand-new arrival into our family. In these private moments, I often send silent inquisitive messages asking them to tell me about God and what the formless spiritual world is like. I have passed many, many hours of my life lying on the floor making direct contact with our new arrivals. I’ve long been fascinated by the fact that children just show up here with personality traits. I love to ask little toddlers who are only beginning to communicate with language to tell me what they remember.

I have asked adults from all walks of life to share the wisdom of their little ones, and I have included many of my own experiences with my children’s recollections in my new book, Memories of Heaven. I am more than convinced that there is much more to our lives than the few short years we are allotted here on Earth.

How To Forgive Someone Who Has Hurt You: In 15 Steps

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

How I Discovered the Wisdom of the Tao

After taking some time to reflect with gratitude and joy on our January 2015 Maui seminar, I am already looking forward to the next one! This annual event is very special to me, and I hope those of you who were able to be with us this year loved it as much as I did. For our 2016 event next year on Maui, I have exciting plans. I’ll be sharing the stage with my good friends, Bruce Lipton and Anita Moorjani. I’ve also decided to revisit a book of mine from 2007, Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life, based on the year I spent studying and living according to Lao-tzu’s wisdom in the way of the Tao te Ching.

Is Big Fear Blocking You From Your Life Purpose?

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

No Excuses — Your Body Wants to Be Healthy

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

9 Habits of Creative Genius

“Everyone is born a genius, but the process of living de-geniuses them.” — Buckminster Fuller

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.

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

Polish the Lens and Meet Your True Self

Here’s a quote I love from 18th century mystical poet, William Blake: “If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.” Those of a certain age, like me, will remember the words “doors of perception” as a catch-phrase of the 1960s. First, British author Aldous Huxley borrowed The Doors of Perception as the title for a brief book he wrote in 1954, detailing his experiences when taking Continue Reading

Trusting in Yourself: A Conversation with Abraham

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

A Tribute to My Brother and All Veterans

My brother, Dave and I in the Orphanage

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.

Happy 88th Birthday, Louise Hay!

On October 8th, one of my greatest role models celebrates her 88th birthday. The beautiful, vibrant, sprightly, wise, and witty Louise Hay has made it her life mission to help and encourage us all to live our best lives. Louise has been celebrating her life ever since she discovered at around 50 years old that your thoughts can change the way you experience things. Want more happiness, peace, joy, health, love, and abundance in your life? Think on these things. Louise says, “I return to the basics of life: forgiveness, courage, gratitude, love, and humor.” Using these principles in the form of Continue Reading

Let Your Food Be Your Medicine

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:

“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

Have You Tried Tapping?

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
