Wanna start off your New Year just right?
Well, you can with “Wishes Fulfilled,” the popular book and seminar by Dr. Wayne Dyer. Sadly in 2015, this acclaimed motivational speaker and international best-selling author passed away.
The salient message of “Wishes Fulfilled” is: a change in feeling (and thinking) is a change in (your) destiny.
As I’ve been applying “Wishes Fulfilled” in my life, I’ve been experiencing a strikingly deep and fundamental shift and change in feeling.
I’ve been sharing Dr. Dyer’s principles with friends and colleagues–to help infuse more value, success, and peace in their lives.
There are three basic principles of “Wishes Fulfilled.” The first is: “If you want to accomplish something, you must EXPECT it from yourself.”
According to Dr. Dyer, this means retraining your subconscious mind in order to attract what you REALLY want. For example, you must refrain from thinking and making statements like, “Poor me—others have done bad things to me. I’ll never be at the body weight I want…” and all other types of rubbish and fuckery. In other words: your feelings create your destiny.
The second principle, “I AM,” builds on the first. Dr. Dyer states that you defile the name of God each and every time you think and utter, “I AM weak. I AM not successful. I AM not capable,” etc., etc.
Again, you must retrain your subconscious mind to attract what you REALLY want.
Instead say, “I AM strong!” “I AM successful!” “I AM capable!” And then mean it. As a result, “I AM God” becomes your identity.
The third and final principle—which has five components—is “The Foundations.” The first is “Imagination.” According to Dr. Dyer, this means that you must place in your imagination what you want to be reality–and then fervently believe it.
The second foundation is “Living from the End.” This means that you must staunchly and fervently BELIEVE that you already possess what you want to achieve–which is the end result.
The third is “Assume the Feeling of the Wish Fulfilled.” Simply put, you must actually FEEL what it is that you want—as if you already have it.
The fourth is “Attention.” Dr. Dyers asks, “What kind of attention do you place on your desires? How much effort are you actually expending to achieve your goals?” He counsels, “Do NOT explain what you place into your imagination. Do not allow anyone to tell you what is possible or impossible for you.”
The fifth and last foundation is: “Now, I Lay Me Down to Sleep.” Dr. Dyer states that this is the most practical of the foundations. “The subconscious mind is most comfortable when you’re in your sleep state. It is then when it is busy at work. You’ll marinate in your subconscious mind for the next eight hours.”
He adds, “Most people use these last five minutes before sleep (focusing) on the negative; it’s their ‘worry time’. Negative instructions and fears are being sealed in their subconscious.”
Therefore, you must REVERSE this process. According to Dr. Dyer, the subliminal is listening to you ask the universe for the negative. The subconscious mind is totally impersonal, open to suggestion, and cannot distinguish between reality and unreality.
Instead, in those last five minutes, speak the following: “I AM well! I AM successful! I AM happy,” etc. And in those last five minutes, review all that you have placed in your imagination. Dr. Dyer emphasizes, “You must let go of your fears and others’ opinions. You have to SEE the wish fulfilled that has not yet come to pass as if it is NOW with you.”
So, there you have it. Remember: “A change in feeling (and thinking) is a change in (your) destiny.”
