"Without exception, begin every day of your life with gratitude. As you look in the mirror, say, "Thank you, God, for life, for my body, for my family and loved ones, for this day, and for the opportunity to be of service. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
~Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
Last week when I heard of Dr. Wayne Dyer's transition to spirit I felt a profound sadness. I wasn't sure why as I truly believe, as he did, that we are spirit in body and that we just move on to the other side and continue our work from there.
I think the reason I felt sad was that I could never again be in his physical presence. May 2014 I decided to attend I CAN DO IT- Vancouver, BC.
Wayne Dyer was the main keynote speaker. I remember being so excited I could hardly breathe. When he came onto the stage he captivated me and had my whole attention. I recognized I was in the midst of greatness.
I had followed him for many years and he is an integral part of my healing journey. I listened to him on HayHouse and I watched him on PBS. I listened when he spoke. It resonated deeply with me.
I think the circumstance that truly bonded me with him was when I heard he had a healing from John of God. That did it. I felt like a part of him was in a part of me. The sacredness of the experience of John of God and our both walking through cancer were our invisible thread. He believed in his healing, as do I. I thought if this great man, this great visionary, this great teacher believed with all his soul then I was safe to be who I was and share my story too. I can't explain it. It was a soul bond.
Dr Dyer made no secret of the leukaemia diagnosis. He truly believed he had a healing from John of God and his official cause of death was coronary disease. No residual leukaemia at all was found in his body.
He spoke most on the forgiveness that he extended to his father that was the pivotal turning point in his life. He actually stated that he had gone to his father's grave to pee on it when he had an overwhelming feeling that from that moment on he would only ever extend LOVE when he thought of his dad. Wow. 41 years to the day he forgave his dad he transitioned. He had fulfilled his soul contract.
I know that I have had to forgive myself and others in my past so that I too can heal. Forgiveness truly is a key to wellness. It allows you to move on in the Grace of God.
"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." - Dr. Dyer.
Tonight, Carolyn Myss and many other great teachers celebrated the life of Dr. Dyer with a free live-stream from HayHouse. She said that when souls who die with resentment in them leave their bodies they are emaciated.. and when a soul who has lived with love and kindness leaves their bodies they leave with an obese soul. I found that very interesting.
I know that as I continue to heal and as I continue to evolve my spirit I recognize the importance of Love and kindness.
I want to return to heaven with an OBESE soul too! As he became older he shed his worldly belongings and gave everything he owned to the poor.
When I was younger I was more materialistic. Now I get it. It isn't about the STUFF. It is all about the LOVE.
Dr. Wayne Dyer you will never be forgotten. I will carry you with me all the days of my life. As Cheryl Richardson recommended, I too am going to invite you to be on my spiritual board. Thank you for guiding me from spirit.
If you have never read a book by this modern day ascended master, I strongly recommend you love yourself enough to check him out. Right now HayHouse has all his content at $1.99 downloads. No excuse to not grab some life changing materials of your own.
May he bless you too.
