Staying Thankful

It’s my contention that the universe not only will, but must provide you with what you conceive of. So if you complain about what’s missing from your life—including the money that you believe to be in short supply—you’ll be offered experiences that match that energy. When you say, “I love my job, but I’ll never get rich at it,” you’re aligning with a frequency that will give you what you think. This is why, I believe, the rich often get richer . . . it’s certainly been true for me since I left poverty behind me some 60 years ago.

By staying focused on what I intend to create, by believing that the universe is all-providing, and by knowing that I’m worthy of the unlimited beneficence of the Source of being, I just keep attracting prosperity to me. And by being unattached to what shows up, which means that I have no desire for more and more, I’m able to let it go easily. What remains a mystery to so many remains a simple truth to me.

Stay in a state of gratitude, and let the awesome yet unexplainable Tao proceed to do nothing and yet leave nothing undone. Rather than asking for more—which implies shortages and, therefore, creates a vibrational match to more shortages—focus on what you have and how thankful you are for everything that has shown up in your life.

To that end, keep in mind a “happiness index” that was recently taken for different countries around the world. It turns out that Nigeria, which is one of the poorest of nations, with the least modern of conveniences, came in at number one for reports of happiness among the people there. The U.S. ranked 46 out of 50, despite having one of the highest standards of living in the world. Apparently, the emphasis in Nigeria isn’t on the mantra of the ego, which demands more, more, more. Emphasizing needing more has built within it the idea of shortage, lack, and I don’t have enough. Consequently, when you think more, you become a vibrational match to experiencing more shortage in your life . . . like it or not!

Affirm: I am aligned with my Source in all of my thoughts, and with God, all things are possible.

I must be doing this wrong, because it isn’t working. :>

Dear Wayne, your book, “The Power of Intention” is amazing. Three days into reading the book with my perspective making a 180 deg with the changes that come with it, I now understand why Madiba made such a difference, and continue to do so, to my country, South Africa. Happy birthday and thank you!

Wayne, you have been an inspiration to me for so many years. I would like to wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I decided to listen to “Inspiration” today on Mother’s Day. You mentioned how inspirational your mother was to you as was mine to me. I found that very serendipitous. Also Jack Boland lectured at my church many years ago about serendipity.


Dearest Dr. Dyer,
Tomorrow is a special day – your birthday. And I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how to celebrate your greatness. But I would like to wish you a very special and blissful day. You have helped me in so many ways and I am forever grateful for your sagacity and graciousness in sharing. Happy, happy Birthday.

To enter the Kingdom of Heaven, one must become like a child. Observe children. They are happy playing with a cardboard box. When we are able to find blessings in life’s simplest moments, we have found Heaven.It is here all the while.

Erika says:

Colleen says:

Can someone answer this question :
Where does Dr Dyer explain / describe the the story behind the cover photo on “there’s a spiritual solution to every problem” ?
Thank You !

Michelle says:

I am also reading Excuses Begone! and practicing using your advice and guidance. Your spiritual leadership arrived in my life at a time in which I most certainly needed it and already I cannot imagine living life differently and I am so very thankful.

Michelle says:

Thank you, Dr. Dyer, I am indeed inspired by you on a daily basis. I only recently became aware of you. A dear friend had encouraged me for several weeks (maybe months) to watch your movie The Shift. I am so thankful I finally did! I’ve watched it twice so far.

Mucunda says:

Theirs pustules are very close to the impulse and your postulates, in your case in a form that every body can get it and put in practice .

Mucunda says:

Ththe idea is that there is a kind of memory in nature. Each kind of thing has a collective memory. So, take a squirrel living in New York now. That squirrel is being influenced by all past squirrels.

Thanks from Karen Margrete says:

In 1984, visiting Africa, I had the same experience: These people who had only one chicken, would gladly give it as a visitor’s meal so that we could enjoy it with them. They lived more from NOW than I’ve ever seen a European do. And they passed on happiness to us as their visitors.
That was one of the great lessons of my life.

Joao from Bahia Brazil. says:

Brilliant messages and in fact some of them just come at the right time, that’s why I am a big fan and always looking for a new blog. In fact it’s true, when you do have money you attract more money and more business and the opposite is also a fact some times….

parvin says:

That experience and other numerous evidences made thankful of being a human.

parvin says:

I took the basic Biology course in university 30 years ago. I observed the delicate and transparent layers of an onion by a microscope. I watched the current and beautiful cycle of life in alive cells of onion. Then I realized that ” I am a unique and complicated creatures of the universe”.

Valerie Curcuro, Life Coach says:

Changing perspective, from one that sees the glass as half empty to one that sees it full, takes practice, taking regular inventory of all that’s good in our lives can help make that shift – thank you for the reminder of the benevolence of God.

Will says:

There were more bananas than any of them could eat. What happened next, said everything: this is when the chimps began to hoard their bananas and fight fiercely with each other. Interesting how similar to chimps some of us still are?

Will says:

They reduced the number of bananas in the enclosure until there were barely enough for the chimps to survive. What happened next was unexpected. Chimps who had more bananas shared with chimps who were starving. Then, the next phase began – they increased the banana supply until there were too many.

Will says:

My father had a friend who was a researcher at UCLA. As part of his research on social structures, he had a large enclosure where a number of chimpanzees lived. As it happens, chimps actually do love bananas. The enclosure was supplied with enough bananas for the chimps to eat well. Then, the experiment began.

Mucunda says:

It is strange , that when I read the power of intention , many time ago I read Juan de Castaneda, DON JUAN, but it was reading you , an American , who introduce me in another way to the Latin shaman , now I am re-reading both at the same time to make my onw conclusion.The best for your next birthday and Staying Thankful

Nealon Hightower, Six Simple Truths says:

Wayno, you always have a way of putting things so we can understand them. “Grateful is as grateful does.” Many blessings.
