Dr. Wayne DyerIf you are a fan of Dr. Wayne Dyer, you will definitely want to read his new book and watch the PBS special this summer where Dr. Dyer explains his approach to overcoming the excuses we give ourselves for not living in Joy – for not doing all the things we really want to do – and for staying in old, unproductive, unsatisfying patterns of thinking, feeling,  and behaving.

Isn’t it time for you to make some important changes in your life?  As I said in my previous blog, the energies are supporting you to do it now. 

Message from Wayne Dyer

Excuses Begone! was created out of a belief that entrenched ways of thinking and acting can indeed be eradicated. Furthermore, the most effective means for eliminating habitual thoughts is to go to work on the very system that created, and continues to support, these thinking habits. This system is made up of a long list of explanations and defenses that can be summed up in one word: excuses. Hence, the title of this book is really a statement to yourself, as well as to that system of explanations you’ve created. It is my intention that all excuses be . . . gone!

Excuses Begone! was influenced by my work with the Tao Te Ching. Since the Tao Te Ching taught me what kind of thinking harmonized with my higher self, I asked Lao-tzu for advice on how to change long-established habits of thought. I realized that knowing what to think does not necessarily clarify how to go about changing a lifetime of habitual thinking. Thus, I’ve drawn on Lao-tzu’s wisdom by contemplating his teachings and asking for his guidance on what it takes to bring about a change in the long-held habits of thought that manifest as excuses. Through a process of writing that felt as though I were being directed by a force larger than myself, the Excuses Begone! paradigm evolved.

I’ve taken many people through the seven questions that constitute this exciting new paradigm, and I’ve seen powerful changes take place. By examining the support system that individuals have erected since early childhood, and putting these timeworn thoughts through the seven steps in this paradigm, I find that excuses begin to fade away. They become replaced with thoughts that speak fervently, almost shouting, Yes, you can change any excuse pattern, no matter how long or pervasive the conditioning process has been!

If you’re truly serious about changing any long-established habits of thought that have led you to use excuses as your rationale for staying the same, then I encourage you to follow the practices presented in Excuses Begone!

I have created my ninth Public Television special around the topic of my new book, Excuses Begone!, which will begin airing around the country on June 1. I’m so honored to be associated with Public Television-this year will mark my tenth Anniversary doing public broadcasting programs. We have raised more than $100 million for a great, great cause over these ten years. Through these shows, we’ve helped people to live from a place of integrity, higher consciousness, and spirit. I hope you will enjoy the new show, Excuses Begone!

No More Excuses!!

Have you ever noticed how we have all kinds of rationalizations for deciding not to take advantage of new opportunities?  We may also have excuses for everything we continue to do even when those behaviors no longer meet our needs and actually make us uncomfortable.

The Universe has been telling us for some time (at least the last 2 years) that the old excuses (limiting beliefs) won’t work any more.  If you try to push something away that you have kept stuffed down or pushed back in your life for decades, you can no longer keep whatever it is at bay.  This is true for all of us. We are being asked to expand, to grow, to change.

The Ascension Energies are supporting us.  It is time to face up to our limiting beliefs.  It is time to change them into  more expansive concepts and understanding.  The energies that used to let us rationalize and lied to ourselves are gone.  They’ve been replaced by higher frequencies that want us to “be all that we can be” (if you’ll pardon the use of that phrase that has be co-opted by the military – what a distortion – the military doesn’t want creative, think-for-yourself people – it wants people who OBEY ORDERS.)

OK – so you’ve run into a block.  How do you know when you’re blocked?  Are your feeling angry?  Frustrated?  Depressed?  Are you saying to yourself, “Why is it always this way?”  “Why me?”  “This happens over and over again in my life and I’m ‘sick and tired’ of it?”

There are so many teleclasses and programs available today to help you move through this into a new space of internal calm, peace, harmony, satisfaction.  You can harness your fears, angers, frustrations, depression.  You can gather up the power that lives within them and use that power, that energy, to create something else in your life. 

One way to do this is through a Spiritual Empowerment session with me.  (more information is available under the Human Services tab on the home page of my website (http://www.RayOfHealingLight.com). 

Another way is to read a new book that is coming out next week by Wayne Dyer, “Excuses Begone!”  More about this book in my next blog.
