Dr Wayne Dyer was an international best selling author and speaker on self-growth and Spirituality, his teachings have influenced and enriched the lives of many millions of people.
Born on 10th May 1940 in Michigan USA, Wayne had a difficult start to life, spending many years as a child in foster care. His father was not a part of his life, but as an adult he felt compelled to find the man who enraged him. It was at his graveside that Wayne finally found him and also found forgiveness, which changed his life.
Beginning in 1976 with his first self-help book 'Your Erroneous Zones,' Wayne went on to write over forty books and spoke through radio shows, television and public appearances. Using his own Spiritual development as a way to guide through his work, he also used his influence as a renowned author to assist others in bringing their own experiences to a wider audience.
In his late sixties Wayne developed leukemia and as always he continued to use his own life experience to teach others: 'I can see clearly that the presence of this leukemia was an opportunity for me to be able to teach, via my own example, how to live from a place of no excuses and Divine Love.' 'I have always affirmed that I Am a teacher, and this experience, along with so many other wonderous events, was given to me to use as an example to serve and support others. I no longer say, "I have leukemia," which I said routinely during the earlier days of my diagnosis. Instead, I begin each day with the statement that the entities spoke to me as I stood before John of God: "I am well. In fact, I am in perfect health." The Sufis tell us that when we walk in the garden and step on a thorn, we must always remember to say thank you. For the thorn of leukemia that brought me closer to my own I AM presence, and to the one Divine all-knowing mind of God, I offer a heartfelt thank you, thank you, thank you!'
On 30th August 2015 Wayne made his peaceful transition into the flow of eternal life, passing in his sleep. (There were no signs of leukaemia in his body.)
His Light that shone so brightly continues now from a different perspective and many people worldwide have spoken of feeling his connection and loving guidance.
Love, Light, Blessings and an Eternal Heartfelt Thank You to Wayne for sharing his journey in becoming one of the greatest influential Spiritual teachers of our time. God Bless You.
I Am Light
An example of Wayne Dyer's influence on other people is through this song of India Arie. I heard him talk about it and 'found' the song (which I love) a few months before his passing. When I came to update this page at the beginning of 2016 I was looking for a certain story from Wayne, but couldn't find it, instead I came across this tribute video from India...

Listen to your inner knowings.
Look into a mirror, make eye contact with yourself and say, "I love me," as many times as possible during the day.
Illustrated by Sandra Reeves
Love creates new form, changes matter, and holds the cosmos together beyond time and space. It’s in every one of us. It’s what God is.

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!”
Wayne Dyer Quotes: Y

Wayne Dyer quote
You can make your life into a grand ever-evolving work of art. The key is your thoughts, the wondrous invisible part of you that is your spiritual Soul.

Your children are Spiritual Beings who come through you, not for you.

Your children will see what you’re all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Your physical self is inspired by a Divine force that beats it's heart, digests it's food and grows it's fingernails, and this same force is receptive to endlessly abundant health.
Your Soul - that inner quiet space - is yours to consult. It will always guide you in the right direction.
