Wayne Dyer: Excuses Begone

Wayne Dyer: Excuses Begone

Wayne Dyer’s new book: Excuses Begone gives readers 18 affirmations to antidote 18 of the most common excuses and gives a 6 part exercise to do on the excuses that you use.

Here are some snippets:

Don’t underestimate your ability to change.

Fulfill your passion and your purpose by eliminating all excuses.  Simply accept no excuses from yourself.

You can change your DNA by changing your perception.

Passion within you is god speaking.

The effectiveness of The Placebo Effect is due to the power of belief and due to thoughts becoming things.

Never let money keep you from living your dharma or your purpose.

Don’t let rules stop you.  Practice civil disobedience.

“With god, all things are possible”- this means EVERYTHING; nothing is excluded!

All excuses are the result of misalignment.

Can you imagine God/Source saying “I’m too tired” or “I don’t have enough time”?

If your thoughts match Source/God, you have the same power as Source, you set into motion the creative forces in the Universe, and you attract Divine Mind.

Make your #1 relationship your relationship with the divine.

Allow the divine to work it’s magic.

Suspend all blame, take full responsibility, surrender to what’s bigger than you, be willing to transform, shed EVERYTHING you’ve been unwilling to do.

It’s never too late.  many people have created highly successful careers and businesses after midlife.

Carl Jung said: “Our greatest problems are not to be solved but to be outgrown”.

See the hidden blessings in the challenges you have.

Feelings are your manifesters!


The Economy and Mahashivaratri: Fears and Beliefs Point the Way to Growth and Healing

The Economy and Mahashivaratri: Fears and Beliefs Point the Way to Growth and Healing

Right now, many people think that having plenty of money would make them feel whole because their sense of security is being threatened by their belief in a failing economy. This is actually a very good indicator of where their belief really is. Your fear and insecurity is always pointing the way to your healing as a spiritual being. What do you fear? If it’s a lack of security, then you believe in the idea that money and business comes FROM people instead of THROUGH people.

There is only one source of supply – God/Source/Universe/Spirit- whatever term works for you. No situation or circumstance can change that truth.
No matter what it is that you secretly desire, if you believe that it will come from God/Source/Universe/Spirit (and NOT from other people), it can be yours. If you believe that, you can be At Cause rather than At Effect (see previous posts about these terms), you can utilize Universal Laws such as the Law of Attraction. Beliefs are KEY! Your success with anything is dependent upon your beliefs. If you have conflicting beliefs, even at the subconscious level, your chances of success are undermined. NLP, Hypnosis and Theta Healing are great ways to resolve such conflicting beliefs!

I filmed a video on Friday for my soon-to-launch website for my business, Money Mastery. Some clients came in to film testimonials about working with me. One of them talked about discovering in our work together how many limiting beliefs he had been unaware of. As we uncovered these beliefs and resolved them, his entire life began to shift and improve- even in areas that we weren’t directly addressing. How cool is that? It frequently happens! That’s the power of using quantum physics in my processes with clients.

Today is Maha Shivratri, the night of the worship of Shiva. It occurs on the 14th night of the new moon during the dark half of the month of Phalguna (Feb / March). It’s the darkest of all the new moons. It’s a time when Hindus offer special prayer to the lord of destruction. I study Anusara yoga with an amazing teacher, Laura Christensen. In talking about the auspiciousness of this day, she said it’s a good time to release what you don’t want to make space for what you do want (I say it’s ALWAYS a good day to do that!), and to clarify your intentions. Get crystal clear on what it is that you want. Allow yourself to FEEL what it will be like when it comes to fruition. Allow yourself to feel your longing and desire. Don’t hold back. No one is watching. This is the day to really let yourself feel it.
Rather than using the words “I want ______” Use the words “May it be”. For example: rather than saying “I want a great job.” , say:”May I have the right job for me at this time.”

May we all have the fruition of our hearts’ deepest desires!

The Science of Getting Rich, Part 3

The Science of Getting Rich

The Law of Gratitude

Gratitude is so important and powerful for myriad reasons
; here are a few:
Gratitude allows you to relate to Source, Spirit, God, Universe, whatever term you use for this, in a harmonious way and puts you in unity with the mind of god. This has enormously powerful repercussions. Your mind will be in closer alignment with the mind of god, with Creative Thought, and with the flow of abundance.
Gratitude keeps us from falling prey to competitive thought or thoughts of scarcity.
Gratitude attracts.
You cannot exercise much power without gratitude because gratitude keeps you connected with power. Ditto for happiness.
A grateful mind expects good things, has faith, attracts and receives good things. This serves to increase faith which increases attraction and receiving. You get the idea? Faith is another KEY.

Be grateful for whatever life presents you with. You may not be able to see or appreciate the perfection when what life presents you with appears negative, but it’s all part of your growth if you use it as such. Realize that you have received already; be grateful. Practice saying or writing ” I’m so happy and grateful now that ________”. Fill in the blank as many times as you can. Do this before you go to bed. Do it with your kids. Do it with your partner or spouse. Have a notebook or journal just for this. See how fast you can fill it up. Create a contest in your family or household to see who can fill theirs first. If you have difficulty getting started, go see Slumdog Millionaire. You may feel more grateful for what you have after seeing this film.

Do your best. Each of us will do our best when we are doing our Purpose.

Personal Freedom and Responsibility go Hand in Hand.

Personal freedom and responsibility go hand in hand.

The price for freedom is self-growth.

As with immigrants to this country, we must be willing to grow in a new environment in order to take full advantage of all it has to offer. We must be willing to stretch to break free of limits and constraints. As we well know, just because we are living in a place of ‘freedom’ it doesn’t necessarily mean we are safe and secure – how to be safe and secure is something else we must learn.

Just getting to the intellectual understanding or awareness that we may have those self-limiting barriers (or freedom, for that matter) is not enough. We must now DO something with that knowledge. Unfortunately, when ego rules the mind, we often find ourselves falling into the mindset that we don’t need to DO anything else … that we can simply hang out in this new freedom indefinitely and things will be different.

This mindset – this inaction – is so dangerous because personal freedom and responsibility go hand in hand.

This first “why I shouldn’t” line of thinking keeps you where you are and leads you down a false road. But the second line of thinking, the “why I should”, leads to more life and the true abundance of the universe.

Consider this question…

“Who did God place in your life as a guide, mentor, coach or teacher?”

If you can get yourself out of the way, that person can lead you to places you may never have even dreamed about. But the responsibility – the action – for beginning the journey is solely yours.


Let’s say you’re fortunate enough to have a sense of your purpose.  Now what?  It’s not all downhill cruising from here.  You’re likely to meet up with resistance internally and externally. People resist consciously and unconsciously. The reason we resist is fear, for a few reasons: 1. We know that it is a road we must travel alone. Even if others are going with us, we now answer to a higher call and must follow that inner guidance. 2. Many people will not and cannot understand what we experience because they have not experienced it themselves so we must seek out people who understand the process so we can relate our experience. 3. We have an ego.

Your ego, the part of you that you think of as “I”, makes choices and takes action in the world. It is responsible for your safety. One of the primary ways that the ego ensures safety is to maintain the status quo.  The ego is not keen on any growth or change that diminishes the ego’s hold on you or reality as it knows it.  Your ego isn’t going to let you find or pursue your purpose if it thinks that it is or will be unsafe from it’s perspective.

You’re probably aware of your desire to know your purpose, or you wouldn’t be reading this.  Are you also aware of the part of you that DOESN’T want to know your purpose, or is AFRAID of knowing your purpose? If not, sense into it. Watch what arises in you as you entertain notions such as: “what if my purpose tells me to change jobs?”, “What if my purpose doesn’t involve making a good living?”.

Our fears come from our attachments and resistance to step into the truth and accept it’s reality.

Stay tuned for Part 4



Discovering your life’s purpose requires choices. The
two most important choices are these: Do I want to know what my
life’s purpose is? And, having discovered my purpose, do I want to
live my life in a way that is consistent with that purpose? However, in contemplating whether to discover one’s purpose, people may fear that which is unknown to them. Contained within this unknown, though, is the part of you that already knows your purpose and how to fulfill it.

In order for us to manifest our purpose, we must be properly trained. Fortunately, the soul develops and executes our training plan. It does this by influencing our decisions and helping us to choose things that will develop us in ways that serve our purpose.
The soul also “arranges” experiences for us that will cause us to grow and develop. These experiences can often be unpleasant, such as car accidents, being fired or laid off, and losing loved ones. However, it is most often our “worst” experiences that can teach us the most. The soul doesn’t cause these things to happen in the normal sense, but often steers us toward learning opportunities that our ego would naturally avoid. Along the way, as we try out different things, we act in ways that are in alignment with our fundamental purpose, and also in ways that are not. While we are usually unaware of the purpose itself, these two ways of behaving feel very different to us when we reflect on our actions and behaviors.

By looking back over our lives and reviewing the qualities of our previous experiences, we may see that there were sets of qualities of experience that correspond to times when we were on-purpose and other sets of experiences that correspond to times when we were off-purpose. By looking for similarities in those times or events, we can draw conclusions about our purpose.
We’re looking for times when we felt fulfilled, passionate, intensely alive, thoroughly utilized, that we make a difference, when things happen easily and seemingly chance coincidences occur to support our goals and projects, and our efforts produce results, as well as times when there is serendipity, flow or grace. At such times, it’s as though the wind is at our backs and is moving us along with very little sense of efforting on our part. The process is enjoyable even if it’s challenging, and we aren’t concerned about having enough energy or motivation to achieve our objectives. These are the times when we are ON PURPOSE although we may not be aware of our purpose as it’s occuring. When we are doing things in our life that support our purpose, our soul and life gives us positive feedback.

When we are out of alignment with our purpose, it feels very
different. We find obstacles at every turn. We have to muster up the energy and the will to follow through and complete things. There is a sense of swimming upstream or walking headlong into the wind and having to effort to move forward at all. We don’t enjoy the process much of the time. We are not satisfied by our accomplishments, or the satisfaction is fleeting. We wonder, at times, why we’re doing what we’re doing, and imagine greener pastures. I call this experience “slogging through mud”.




No, this is not from one of those late-night infomercials on T.V.
This is about doing work you love, work you were meant to do, and earning money more easily as a result. This is the connection between money and life purpose.

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy!”
—Mevlana Rumi

What do I mean by “life purpose”? I mean it as an answer to questions like:
• Why am I here?
• How can I, given who I am, best serve humanity/the world?
• What am I meant to do?
• What lights me up from the inside more than anything else?
• What work would I want to do if earning a living wasn’t an issue?

Many people aren’t aware of their purpose and may think that they just don’t have a purpose. The good news is that everyone has a purpose, yes, even you. What’s more, you don’t need to go searching for your purpose; it is already inside you. It has been guiding you your whole life, whether you are aware of it or not.

Knowing your purpose can dramatically enhance your experience of
life. Purpose-driven people experience more fulfillment, more
success, and often greater financial rewards than other people.

Paradoxically, people who set out to live their purpose often make
more money than people who set out to make money! This is because we are better at doing our purpose than we are at doing anything else and because we tap into the resources of the universe when we are pursuing our purpose. Some liken it to having the wind at their back. They may be applying themselves intensely to their work, but there’s a greater sense of ease and flow than when they do other work that has no relation to their purpose.

Another incentive for knowing and fulfilling your purpose may be anticipating how you want to feel at the end of your life: to be able to look back on your life with a sense of satisfaction, knowing that you gave it your all, and that your life made a difference and had some significance in a way that’s meaningful to you. Dying people rarely regret the things they did; they more often regret the things they didn’t do and having a sense of having not fulfilled their purpose.
