I’m freshly back from a beautiful evening in London last night paying tribute to Wayne Dyer, one of the most inspirational teachers who has greatly impacted the way I live my life and the work I share in the world.
There are so many amazing insights and Aha moments I could share from the evening, but the biggest has to be the role of divine guidance, inner trust and fear.
For those of you who don’t know, heres Wayne Dyers story in short; until the age of 34, Wayne was living a life trapped in anger& resentment towards his father whom he had never met. He overweight, using drugs & alcohol and feeling unfulfilled as he moved through his days.
But on 30th August 1974, everything changed.
After spending his life searching for his father to find answer as to why he abandoned him and his brothers, Wayne discovered he had in fact been dead for 10 years. On this faithful day back in 1974, Wayne went to his fathers grave for the first time to vandalise it, but instead the events that unfolded changed his life and that of thousands around the world who’s been touched by his work forever.
You see, after spending several hours at his grave shouting and cursing at his father, Wayne went to leave. Upon doing so he heard a voice, a calling telling him to go back. Fortunately for Wayne and the thousands of us who have been influenced by his work, he listened and he went back. Upon doing so, he felt a rush of divine love and forgiveness and vowed from this day forward, he would forgive his father and only ever send him love. He trusted in the message he received, he acted upon it, and his life was forever changed as a result. After leaving the gravesite, he went to a motel where he sat for 14 days and wrote his first book, your erroneous zones, which became a worldwide hit, spending 64 weeks at the top of the bestsellers list and selling an estimated 35 million copies.
The tribute evening made me think back to all of those times in my own life when i’ve ignored divine guidance and inspiration thats come through, times when I knew I should’ve followed my intuition, trusted myself and acted upon it, how many things may have turned out differently? I am a true believer that we can never fall far from our intented path, so we always find our way back eventually, but how much quicker, easier and pain free the journey could’ve been!
How many times in your own life have you recieved such
guidance and inspiration?
How many time have you followed it?
And how many times have you ignored it and been led to a less than desirable outcome?
Imagine how different Waynes life would’ve been had he not followed the guidance given to him on that day?
Where would he have spent his life?
Would we even know his name?
Or would he have spent his time struggling somewhere quietly trying to force the right break, attract his next client, make the right connection to get his message heard, or even given up his dreams and continued as a universtity professor never quite living the life that was intended for him?
One thing I do know for sure, when that divine guidance, that inspiration, that inner knowing comes through and calls to you, you need to learn to trust yourself enough to listen, to follow through and take action, no matter what other people might think, no matter how crazy it may seem at the time.
When you practice building trust within yourself and listening to the guidance you are being given, you no longer have to push your way to what you want, you no longer have to struggle financially or emotionally, you create a direct connection to the divine, to God, to Source or whatever name you want to give it, and life begins to magically unfold around you, all that is meant for you in this beautiful lifetime shows up at exactly the right time.
If Wayne Dyer didn’t listen that day, if he allowed himself to get stuck with fear, with doubt and worry, we may never have been blessed with the gifts this beautiful man had to offer the world.
If you allow yourself to stay stuck in fear, worry or procrastination, not listening or trusting the guidance that comes through, that burning desire you have in your heart, we may never be blessed with your gifts either.
Take action today, make a commitment to honour and trust yourself, to be all that you can be and to fully step up and share your gifts with the world.
And if your struggling to go it alone, hit reply and lets hop on skype for 15minutes to help you move forward and learn more about stepping into your own power of divine love and guidance.
Until next time, Be blessed, Be loved & Be guided.
