In "Dyer" Need of Help?
My First Encounter with Dr. Wayne Dyer
I was a young college student, just beginning my studies in Psychology when I first discovered Dr. Wayne Dyer. My father had given me his copy of the book, ", a Self-Help book Wayne Dyer had written in 1989. In early 1990, I am a budding young psychology major with a propensity towards writing, and this is when I first encounter an abundantly expressive language for how potent and powerful our thoughts can be! You'll See It When You Believe It"
Wayne wrote about using the power of his thoughts to visualize the most favorable outcome for having his book published, and simply refused to accept "no" for an answer. He was tenacious and never gave up hope no matter how many publishers rejected him or people told him it that "maybe it was time to hang it up". He emphasized that he simply chose to believe that the book will published and then acted on that thought. He met with an endless stream of publishers and other influencial figures and was awarded his greatest opportunity after spending hours on the road distributing copies of the book from the trunk of his car! I am beyond impressed and inspired!
My Second Encounter With Wayne Dyer
Perhaps a year or two after devouring his first 3 books, I learned that Dr. Wayne Dyer himself would be giving a seminar in a town just a few hours away from me. I registered for the event and took my dad's copy of "You'll See It When You Believe It" with me. After the workshop ended, Wayne announced that he would be conducting a book signing for those who wanted to stay.
I eagerly joined the masses and as I stood in line, I rehearsed the words I would say to him when I it was my turn. Much to my surprise, Dr. Dyer turned to me, his eyes and face were beaming as he exclaimed, "Hi there, beautiful!" and reached out and hugged me! Mind you, he did not do this to anyone else the entire time I was standing there! I was stunned. I forgot everything I was going to say and just stood there, trembling and dumbfounded. He asked me if I'd like him to sign my book, now dangling by my fingertips at my side. Still stunned, I managed to utter "uh-huh" and hand over the book. Dr. Dyer doesn't skip a beat and asks, "What's your name, dear?". I manage to say my name and Wayne looks up from his pen intently, repeated my name and added, "That's C-A-R-Y-N, right?" All I could do was nod my head in the affirmative. No words ever escaped my mouth. He smiled and hugged me again before I turned to leave, forever changed.
Now whether or not you believe in miracles, psychic abilities or other mystical experiences, one must admit that Dr. Dyer took a leap of faith at guessing this unpopular spelling of the name Caryn (Karen, Karin, Caren, Karyn). I was no doubt elated that my idol "guessed" this unique detail about me. I felt as though he was in tune with a source that held knowledge beyond words and the body. His smile and warmth confirmed it for me.
