Looking for inspiring Dr. Wayne Dyer quotes?

You are in the right place!

First, who is Dr. Wayne Dyer

The late Dr. Wayne Walter Dyer was a motivational speaker, spiritual teacher, and psychologist from Detroit, Michigan.

He taught people how to manifest their destinies through the power of intention.

His motto was, “You do not attract what you want; you attract what you are.”

A favorite on the Oprah Winfrey Show, his career spanned four decades; he authored 40 books, and 21 of them were New York Times bestsellers.

He believed once one realizes they are a divine spirit and starts to cultivate a sense of purpose, the self-actualization process occurs in one’s life.

Ahh, I miss his soothing and encouraging voice.

Instead, today, we’ll have to settle for his powerful quotes.

“To be more childlike, you don’t have to give up being an adult. The fully integrated person is capable of being both an adult and a child simultaneously.

“By staying focused on what I intend to create, by believing that the universe is all-providing, and by knowing that I’m worthy of the unlimited beneficence of the Source of being, I just keep attracting prosperity to me.” ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer


“Water is the softest of all things, yet it is the most powerful. The ocean patiently allows all things to flow into it. It is always flexible. The Tao is not about grasping, but allowing, like water.” ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer


“An artist or a creative person of any kind goes about their work because it’s their path, it’s what excites them, it’s what aligns their soul with who they truly are, who they showed up to be.” ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer


“I implore you to see the universe as a warm and supportive one because you’ll look for evidence to support this view. When you anticipate that the universe is friendly, you see friendly people.
