Inspirational books are important part of my office bookshelf. While spiritual/inspirational authors don’t always give direct business advice, many of them offer mental success strategies and encouragement to follow your dreams which is so important for artists and creative solopreneurs!
Recently, I read Wishes Fulfilled by Wayne Dyer. I’ve read many of his books, as well as other Hay House inspirational authors. However, this one impacted me more strongly than others. It’s his latest book which focuses on creating the life you want to live, the life of your dreams.
There are countless authors writing about manifestation and reaching goals. Many have series of steps to follow or indirect advice. Wishes Fulfilled stands out with a simple, yet powerful underlying spiritual message, “I AM (everything I want).” You are already there. Embrace it wholeheartedly. You are connected to it, and to the divine. It isn’t outside of you or far away. Everything is possible with this understanding including healings, life goals, money…. I felt an aha! moment after reading the first few chapters. I didn’t get lost in lots of steps or vague messages to sort out.
I felt a strong message of love from this book, which struck me deeply. My favorite quote from this book is “When you realize your own magnificence, you will only attract magnificence in your life.” So often we doubt ourselves or discount our abilities, but faith and love are simply what we need to make it happen. Wayne Dyer writes about faith and spirituality in a way that respects all traditions and beliefs. I think this unity consciousness is one of his greatest merits as an author/speaker.
Overall, I think the heart of this book was more compelling than the stories in the beginning or life experience examples near the ending. There are many insights in this book that I learned before in other books and understood intellectually, but a piece of the puzzle was still missing for me. In this book I found that piece, and I feel it in my heart. It is a book I will come back to again and again…
Have you read this one? If so, I’d love to hear your comments!
