Dr. Wayne Dyer first entered my life when I was a teenager, thanks to my Dad having stumbled upon one of his PBS shows. Wayne Dyer’s teachings have been like a loving father’s sage advice, echoing my own inner wisdom and guidance. I am sad that I will never again see him live on stage, reciting poetry with a sweeping hand gesture, making Emily Dickinson’s words come alive. “This quiet dust was gentlemen and ladies…” Now, if he had been the instructor in my first year college class, Poems and Novels, I may have ended up with a different grade!

He made seemingly complicated situations, simple. And many times I turned to his words to help me navigate my own circumstances. Here are just 3 bits of wisdom that I want to share with you today:

One: When you seek happiness for yourself, it will always elude you. When you seek happiness for others, you will find it yourself. 

Two: When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Three: You are important enough to ask and you are blessed enough to receive.

We all know what it takes to make us happy, what allows us to feel fulfilled. We do. All of this knowledge is innate. But sometimes we need another soul to light the way and shine some truth on us, to inspire us to remember our true Self and live from that place. Wayne Dyer was that – and still is that – for me.

But along the way I have come across other thought leaders who resonate with me, and that includes the Spirit Junkie herself: Gabrielle Bernstein. I know I’ve been talking about her on social media and here, about how excited I am to be seeing her live next month. I guess I’m a bit of a spirit junkie myself! If you are going, please let me know! Last I heard there are fewer than 30 tickets left. Just sayin’ 🙂

Ahhhh, a great start to this day, thinking about Wayne Dyer and others like Gabby Bernstein whose purpose in life is to remind us of all the ways we can fuel happiness.

How do YOU tap into the happiness inside you? What helps you get back to it and bring it out into the world? I’d love to hear in the comments!

Happy Thursday!
