“Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.” Wayne Dyer

When it comes to audio tapes: Dr. Wayne Dyer is king. About 3 weeks ago, I accidentally spilled water on my laptop, and as a result I lost some extremely valuable information. Most notably, along with pictures and unfinished work, I lost all my Wayne Dryer audio tape collection. So on a recent trip to the book store, I picked up a copy Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book, Getting into the Gap, which included a free meditation CD.  Getting into the Gap is a great introduction to meditation; and the world of Wayne Dyer. So I thought I would share his practical guidance for meditation and a summary of his nine spiritual principles here on E.Y.D. Dr. Dyer is an internationally renowned speaker and author of over 30 books, and I highly recommend his audio tapes to my readers.


Dr. Wayne Dyer’s practical guide to meditation:

“Connect to the divine Source with unconditional love. This principles creates an awareness of the significance of accepting your manifestations with absolute love.” Dr. Dyer

1.) beauty-of-being“There’s no such thing as a bad meditation. Any time you spend time in silence is valuable, even if your inner voice is persistent and loud. Don’t judge it; just observe it. Simply observe yourself sitting there, and when a stray thought suddenly appears, just note it, and use its presence as a reminder to go back to the gap.”

2.)  “With time, your inner dialogue will shut down. We all know that mastery is seldom achieved without practice. Meditation is no exception. Perhaps that’s why it’s called practice. With the passage of time, you’ll easily slip into the gap with joyous anticipation of reuniting with God.”

3.)  “There’s no right or wrong time to meditate. Each of us finds our most comfortable time of day, so don’t try to do this on someone else’s schedule. You can slip into the gap frequently if you take advantage of a two minute stop at a traffic light, a pause in a meeting, a trip to the rest room, or the time you spend waiting for an appointment.”


4.)  “There’s no correct mediation length. I find that approximately 20 minutes per session twice daily is optimal for me. However, even a few moments can be nurturing. I’ve also learned that a two or three hour flight is a grand opportunity for me to spend an extended period of time in the gap, and that the time passes in what seems like a few moments.”

5.)  “There’s no correct posture or place for meditation. Find what makes you comfortable and trust it. Sitting, lying down, kneeling – whatever works for you is the perfect posture. Anyplace at all can serve as your location. Since I travel so much, I’m not particular about location, while some people I know use the same posture, the same chair, and the same time every day. Whatever “floats your boat”, as my teenagers say, is fine.”


“Everything in the universe has a purpose. Indeed, the invisible intelligence that flows through everything in a purposeful fashion is also flowing through you.” Wayne Dyer

Dr. Wayne Dyer’s nine spiritual principles:

1.)  “Become aware of your highest self. This awareness helps you know that you are more then merely a physical creation.”

2.)  “Trust yourself so that you trust the wisdom that created you. This principle establishes you are one and the same with the universal God-force.”

3.)  “Realize that you are more then an organism in an environment. You are an Environorganism. This principle establishes that there is no separation between you and anything outside you in the material world.”

4.)  “Know that you can attract to yourself what you desire. This principle establishes your power to attract that which you are already connected to.”

5.)  “Honor your worthiness to receive. This principle affirms that you are worthy of all that is attracted to your life.”

6.)  “Connect to the divine Source with unconditional love. This principles creates an awareness of the significance of accepting your manifestations with absolute love.”

7.)  “Meditate to the sound of creation. This principle gives you the tools for vibrating to the sounds that are in the world of creation.”

8.)  “Patiently detach from the outcome. This principle emphasizes the need to remove demands and become infinitely patient.”

9.)  “Receive you manifestations with gratitude and generosity. This principle teaches you the value of taming the ego while being thankful and serving others with your manifestations.”

A few more quotes:

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.”  Wayne Dyer

“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” Wayne Dyer

“It’s never crowded along the extra mile.”  Wayne Dyer

  1. Thanks for reminding me about Getting into the Gap, I agree it is a wonderful introduction to meditation, and works for people of any belief system (or none at all.)

    Thanks Lisa for dropping in and leaving a comment. I found another great post on Wayne Dyer on the Positivity Blog, regarding 8 tips for building a better social life. Check it out when you get the chance.

    The backup system I now use to prevent losing my important ‘stuff’ is Mozy home. It does an automatic backup daily. When my old laptop crashed (the blue screen of death), I got all of my backups, and my tapes and cd’s that were on my laptop back from the download! Saved! I just love the idea of not really losing my content!

    Thanks for a wonderful blog!

    “There’s no such thing as a bad meditation.” I have been feeling bad about not making any headway in my meditation practice lately. The quote that you shared spoke to me. Yes, I am reminded that each session is a lesson in itself.

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve read most of his books, but it’s always nice to have a reminder. It’s too easy to slip into old patterns of thought.

  7. @ Leslie, Great idea! Thanks for the feedback! I will look into that!

    @ Univision, hope to hear from you soon!

    @Evelyn, Glad I could be of some help…

    @ E cigarette, I completely agree. Cheers
