“Don’t die with your music still in you.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer
Today, with the world talking about the loss of a great soul, I’m reflecting on who I was the first time I heard Dr. Wayne Dyer speak.
It was a chiropractic seminar in Chicago at least ten years ago. I don’t know that I even recognize the person I was then and although he had been enlightening people for many years, I had not heard of Wayne Dyer at that time.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears.
I felt stuck in my life, trapped by circumstances, unaware I had the power to change any of it even though I so badly wanted to. I always had a feeling there had to be more to life. I wanted to believe I was meant for greater things, I just didn’t know how to connect the dots to get me there.
As I sat and listened to him speak, his message grabbed hold of my heart. It felt like I had been zapped with electricity but in a very good way. I felt a shift, suddenly there was a bright light on my future. The shadows lifted and I was bursting with inspiration as I took notes. Possibilities that felt real began to emerge.
A longing for something I’d never had in my life before was now feeling within my grasp – according to what he shared with us, control of the direction of my life’s course was mine for the taking.
I had a craving for more of the energy he was transmitting. It awakened something special within me. Not realizing it, I left that day on a mission to change my life.
I wanted what he said was possible. I wanted to be in charge of my destiny, to manifest what I set my heart on, to feel confident, deserving of asking and receiving more from life.
Well, mission accomplished. Since then I’ve transformed who I am on the inside and my life has changed on the outside as a result.
I’ve listened to Dr. Dyer more times than I can ever count. To hear of his passing was sad, and there are many that will miss him as I will. Funny as I was typing that sentence, I typed passion instead of passing. Even still he brings a higher energy and passion describes him better anyway. Ha.
Really let his quote sink in for a moment. “Don’t die with your music still in you.”
Your “music”, as in your message, your essence, your dream.
What is “your music”? What is your dream? What stirs inside you that you wish to accomplish?
The world needs to hear you, see you and experience the love you have to give.
This is your time to bring your dream forth.
There are so many reasons to push off your dream for another day, so many things that can feel more urgent, more important but the truth is, nothing is more important than to fulfill the reason you are here.
To give the gifts you came here to give.
To receive the abundance that was blessed upon you before you arrived.
To experience all the fullness life has to give you.
You are not just here to work, clean the house and pay the bills. You have great purpose here, a calling, a mission, a vision – call it whatever you want, it’s all the same.
It’s something “more”. It’s larger than life, bigger than problems and more meaningful than to-do lists.
Don’t put your dream off another day. Step out and claim it. This day is what matters, not tomorrow. Tomorrow will matter eventually.
Without taking that step toward your dream today, nothing changes.
Whether it’s working with kids, volunteering to help animals in need, donating your time to seniors, starting your own business, writing that book that swims around in your mind or starting a blog to share your view on something important and close to your heart.
It all counts, it all matters. And it all makes a difference. It makes the world a better place when a dreamer fulfills a dream. It shifts the vibe in the universe, it elevates and benefits everyone.
Dr. Wayne Dyer proved that. He let his music play and changed many lives because of it, thankfully mine included.
My music is to help you awaken your dreams, to work with you to design a personal plan that creates the time and space for your dreams to blossom.
Because it’s easy to let another day go by and tell yourself tomorrow will be the day you begin. And another and another.
What are you waiting for? What do you tell yourself that keeps you from fulfilling your dreams?
Write out what you think stands in your way. Then take each reason and put a positive spin on it.
And if you get stuck and can’t seem to find a way to make it work for you instead of against you, I’m here. I promise I can help open your mind to the possibilities that hide in plain view.
You have to believe it to see it. If you can see it in your mind’s eye, it is absolutely possible to see it appear in your life.
Don’t let another day go by without your dream.
This is your time dreamer.
Now let your music play.
And to Dr. Wayne Dyer, thank you for being you, for making me see openings where I once saw walls and for teaching me that anything is possible if I really, really, really, really want it. I am grateful to have been blessed by your enlightened soul and your beautiful music. RIP.
