Dr. Wayne Dyer’s books always stretch my thinking and energize my focus on spiritual matters; and I’m forever grateful to my late father for making me aware of Dyer’s work. His most recent publication, Wishes Fulfilled, is no exception.
Here’s Dyer’s own summary of the key takeaways from the book, as found in the final chapter:
1.  Be willing to change your concept of yourself, which means changing what you have believed to be true.
2.   Recognize yourself as always connected to your Source of being.
3.   Become willing to say “I am God” from an egoless perspective.
4.   Treasure your greatest gift—your imagination.
5.   Live as if what you desire is already here.
6.   Assume the feeling of your wish fulfilled
7.   Never let your attention be directed by anything or anyone other than your own highest self
8.   Use the last moments of your day before sleeping to reinforce in your mind your desires as fulfilled
9.   Have a mind that is open to all possibilities. 
10. Remember always: You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.
For the past couple of days I have been striving to practice a mindfulness informed by Dyer’s teachings. In particular, I am telling myself as often as I think of it, “I am loving. I am loveable.” My hope is that by intensifying my focus on giving and receiving love, my subsequent actions will be in alignment with this focus. (After all, anyone can just tell themselves they are loving or loveable.)
I would like, moving forward, to make each decision and response out of love, even when it is not necessarily an action step that others might have preferred. I have a long ways to go here, but—thanks to some additional help from Dyer—I am on the journey.
