Teacher of Miracles, Unity, and Forgiveness

Miracles in Blue sparkles

Dr. Wayne Dyer died this past weekend at the relatively young age of 75.  I don’t know why I imagined he’d live longer. Maybe I wanted to see his age catch up with his wisdom. Maybe he has other work to do.

He had a profound impact on my life and the lives of many. I remember taking notes as I watched  a PBS special he did on the Power of Intention and taking notes. It was several years ago, during a time of transformation in my life.  Wayne Dyer’s teachings, added to the abundant love of the Good Shepherd, helped me become ready and willing for miracles God planned for me to receive when the time was right. I appreciated the way Wayne Dyer spoke of God with reverence, yet with an openness that included each and every one of us. Some consider Dr. Dyer to be a “new age” teacher. I guess if you need to put labels on people, that is one possible label. It is possible for me, as a Christian, to benefit from the teachings of positive people like Wayne Dyer, even people who do not identify as exclusively Christian. He was a unifying force for those willing to see the potential goodness of humanity.

After I read about his death, I went to his website. I wanted to read about the power of intention, about realizing my dreams, becoming who I was meant to be, not letting anything stand in my way! Stuff like that. But what jumped out at me on the website was the featured article  on forgiveness.

I’ve done a fair amount of work on forgiveness, but the opportunity to work on it some more has been coming back up in my life lately like gangbusters.  So, finding forgiveness as the topic of the featured article staring me in the face made me smile.

Here’s the article, which I probably need to read a couple of times.

Thank you, Wayne Dyer, for your message of hope. Good journey on your new adventures!

  1. I hadn’t heard this, JoAnne. I think he helped a great, great many people, and as you say, there is always room in my canon for beings who are positive, forgiving, and courageous… I’ve not read any of his writing directly, but no those who have, and witnessed how inspiration and hope promote transformation and willingness… And forgiveness, yes… It can sometimes take an effort to cultivate, but its fruits are so very sweet…

  2. Inspiration and hope do promote transformation and willingness. That’s an true description of wheat he provided for me.. And your use of the word cultivate fits the process of forgiveness well. Forgiveness has not always come easy. It’s something I need to nurture, to crack the boulders in my path, so I can grow.

  3. Thank you, Wilson. I’m glad you liked it. 🙂

  4. Great post! I LOVE this quote (had put it on one of my blogs quite awhile back). And I too found him on that PBS special and was joyfully floored that here was someone talking my language (on TV!) with such compassion, grounding and clarity. Clear he left much with all of us.

  5. I had the Miracles quote as my Facebook cover for January – so inspiring! Thank you for the affirmation and the reminder that, yes, he did leave to us an abundance of gifts: hope, grounding, compassion, joy…….Thanks for your comment, Julianna!

  6. My heart is with yours here! ❤

  7. I’m not surprised Lorrie. ❤ Good to know 🙂
