Maybe it's just me, but I have a problem with people telling me how to live when it doesn't look like they can do what they suggest the rest of us should do.

Let's take for example Dr. Wayne Dyer's There's a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem.' Wasn't there a spiritual solution to prevent any of his three marriages from ending in divorce? Or didn't he think divorce was a problem? I'm assuming he took the same vows all married people take, the ones that include 'Until death do us part.' Don't tho

I am beginning to believe that anything by Wayne Dyer is amazing, but I may be partial. I love his soothing voice, his wonderful sense of humor, and his brilliant messages. If you are struggling in any area of your life, or if you're having a great time and want ti to get even better, then you really shoudl consider this book. According to him, there are no problems in life. We create the problems. I had to listen to this part several times because it's difficult to grasp. Life doesn't have to b ...more

One of my favorite books by Wayne Dyer! So sad to hear of his recent passing (Aug. 29, 2015).
I've read this one a few times over the years and come away with something new every time.

The principal message of this book can be summarized with the universal maxim, as you think, so shall you be. It’s that simple and you can either dismiss this book as hippy dippy or you can embrace the fact that spirituality and positive energy need not be complicated. From the teachings of mystics to the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi, Dr. Dyer leads you through the practical applications of their wisdom and how you can shift low energy vibrations (fear, anger, guilt, envy, etc.) to a higher e ...more

1. All your conflict with others are never between you and them; They are between you and God. Love your body as the temple that God gave you to house your soul on this journey.

2. The empowering way is to view trials as lessons and opportunities to choose differently.

3. True abundance is an absolute knowing that everything you need will be supplied.

4. Give the world your spirit and detach from the outcome of your efforts and your energy field becomes less and less contaminated.

It was good enough that I've just finished it a second time and bought a used copy for my own library. Much of the book is derived from the Saint Francis prayer. "The spiritual solution to any and all despair is one, to move your energy up by making conscious contact with God and trusting in that contact, thereby dissolving the images of negativity and pessimism, and two, to radiate outward this higher 'up' energy toward others who are believing in and therefore living, lives of quiet desperatio ...more

This book gives the reader hope to uncovering the solutions of the mind. I picked this book up to see what perspective Dyer would give me to help me feel at ease as I tackled those difficult times in life, and I felt so good as I read things I knew were true.

Constantly working on keeping myself in a higher vibration is one way I am working on the prevention of life's challenges, but when they do hit me, I know that I just cannot give them energy. Practicing Dyers theories, has been time well sp

I thought this was a great book. I saw a lot of parallels with some of the things in Miguel Ruiz's books. I really like the emphasis on meditation to help solve what you think are problems. The one thing that I felt was left out of this book is the idea that you can decide not to want something. This book talks a lot about if there is something you want, you can meditate and this will help you get what you want. As much as this can work, I think there are a lot of times when it is just as import ...more

In this book Dyer focuses half of the content on interpreting the famous "St. Francis Prayer." In all honesty, this title didn't resonate with me as much as other books he's written. This is not to suggest there isn't value in this work, for there surely is, it's just in my view it's not among the best of the numerous books he's written throughout his long and storied career. Here is one of my favorite passages from it:

Dyer as normal quotes others and recommends lots of books.
One fact I didn't agree with but before I joined the LDS (Mormon) church believed is that there is no devil. He believes there is no devil so problems are thoughts. If you live in the now and connect with God (light)and keep away from dark all will be okay. I understand the theory of bad and darkness, as a dark bad feeling only I look at night with light as beautiful. I'm a morning person so I really don't go out much in the night but I w

I read this book for the first time in 2005, finishing it on New Year's Day 2006. I loved it back then, but didn't fully appreciate it. I've just finished "reading" it again by listening to it on audiobook while driving through multiple traffic jams on the way home from Virginia Beach. I love it even more now. This is such an uplifting, positive book and is worth listening to for a powerful shot of optimism whenever necessary. One of my favorite lines is, "A basic ingredient of spiritual energy ...more

To say I have read this book is not quite true. I have it in audiobook format and it lives in the deck of my car. I can't even say at this point in time how many times I have listened to it as it gets played often and has for many years now.

What I will say for sure is that if you haven't read or listened to this book you are missing out.

This was one of the very first spiritual books I ever read & it really turned my life around. Up until I read this book I didn't really think that happiness was a choice. I was always waiting for something or someone to make me happy. Dyer gives some spiritual advice for the most common problems people face. Enlightening yet practical I think everyone should have this book!

This is an older book of Dyer's but no less relevant. For people interested in spirituality, I find Dyer extremely clear and well educated on spiritual teachings throughout the ages. His clarity of ideas makes a complex world simple. My favorite chapter is Stop giving energy to things you don't believe in.
Now, of course, the practicing of the message is the continuation. Wish me luck!

Well worth the time, and I did keep my highlighters and page flags handy and put them to use. Like all wisdom writings, it merely points in the right direction, but when the one pointing does so from a place of deep knowing, it can be truly helpful.

What a source of inspiration this book gave me. It filters everything through unconditional love and offers so much peace and fulfillment. I have bought many copies of this book for others and will continue to do so. Please get a copy and read it.

I have to be honest here and share my bias. I read all of Wayne Dyer's books and love them all, so I'm not necessarily well qualified to review them. I highly recommend ANY and ALL of his writings. His philosophy of life is a perfect match with mine.

Wayne Dyer is one of my favorite authors. While this book may not resonate with me as well as some of his other books, it still offers many thought provoking insights and pragmatic advice about developing self-awareness and the healing energy within each of us. The first half of the book focuses on accessing our highest/fastest spiritual energies to eradicate the problems in our lives, and that problems are illusions that we concocted because we believe we have become separate from source (God o ...more

According to the author, if it is permitted to paraphrase his argument, there's a spiritual solution to every problem, and that is to either pretend that it doesn't exist or to get away from it so that it does not disturb your inner peace or positive energy or to bombard it with love and positive energy until it disappears.  Come to think of it, that's how I try to solve my interpersonal problems, but that is another subject for another time.  According to this book's logic, that which is evil o ...more

E o carte foarte bine structurata si prezinta clar etapele si pasii spre a va simti mai liberi si mai light chiar si in furtuna vietii.
Va face ordine in dezodinea mentala si spirituala.
Veti gasi referinte si la alte carti, in paginile ei, carti ce merita citite.
Luati-va insa timp sa o cititi fiindca sunt pasaje ce trebuie "rumegate" muult si bine, sa va intre prin toate fibrele, celulele , sinapsele si nucleii ( ori dupa caz, prin toate nucleele ;) )

“There is a story concerning the Buddha, who is in the company of a fellow traveler who tests this great teacher with derogatory, insulting, disparaging, and bitter responses to anything the Buddha says. Every day, for three days when the Buddha spoke, the traveler responded by calling him a fool, and ridiculing the Buddha in some arrogant fashion. Finally, at the end of the third day, the traveler could stand it no more. He asked, “How is it that you are able to be so loving and kind when all I’ve done for the past three days is dishonor and offend you? Each time I am disobliging to you, you respond in a loving manner. How is this possible?” The Buddha responded with a question of his own for the traveler. “If someone offers you a gift, and you do not accept that gift, to whom does the gift belong?” 11 likes
