Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering The Art of Manifesting by Wayne Dyer

Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering The Art of Manifesting by Wayne Dyer is one of those books that, when I started to read it, all of a sudden, I felt this synthesis and culmination of all I’ve read before and all I’ve experienced melting together into one perfect idea. It just totally makes so much sense, and when you read it, I bet you feel like you’ve just won the lottery of ideas.

Wayne Dyer’s Wished Fulfilled was like a cacophony of ideas screaming at me – this is what you’ve been missing – the idea that my higher power, God, Yahweh, higher power, or whatever you call the God of your understanding, is not something outside of you – it’s actually inside of you.

Wait what?

A Little backstory – I was raised a Catholic since I was born – from baptism to confirmation – 12 years of Catholic schools. My belief was that my higher power was always carrying a big stick and a bible, constantly beating me up for my sinful thoughts and also for being different. Being a proud member of the LGBTQ, I was ostracized from Catholicism. So I left. Yet, I was still convinced that my higher power was way out there in the Universe, far from my reach.

Until I picked up Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering The Art of Manifesting, I was just ripe and ready for his message. What struck me the most, and I got out of Wayne’s words, was that God was not outside of me as the Catholic church had taught me. God was indeed inside of me. And this God was not a hellfire and damnation God. It was one of loving-kindness. God was in me and a part of me.

The next thing I connected with is that once I understood my higher power was within me, then being able to use that master my life and create success and be fulfilled with loving kindness and share my knowledge – I felt like I had a new life. Hence, this book is one of my top five books, and it has helped change my life. It also got me hooked on the road of learning more about manifesting and the law of attraction. I really liked discovering all of his research, and he sighted so many books I’d never read.

Yep, I ended up getting all these books below and dug into how I can transform my life with all of this knowledge.

Wayne mentioned Neville Goddard, The Feeling Is the Secret and The Power of Awareness. He also referenced St. Germain and The “I Am” Discourses, volumes 3 and 11. These books are by the Ascended Master St. Germain, and it’s a record of Godfre Ray King’s experiences on the side of Mount Shasta with St. Germain in 1935. They are a series of 20 books. (If interested, you can get them at Phoenix Books LTD in Columbus, OH.)

A Couple of Things You Will Discover:

The Five Wishes Fulfilled Foundation:

1. Using Your Imagination
2. Live from the End
3. Feeling It
4. Your attention, please
5. Now I lay me down to sleep

Your imagination is a maker of dreams, and fulfilling them opens you up to all unbelievable possibilities. As Neville says: “Your imagination is able to do all that you ask in proportion to the degree of your attention.”

The Core Essence of Dyers Teachings:

  1. The Power of Imagination: Dyer emphasizes the incredible power of our imagination. By vividly imagining our desires as already fulfilled, we align our subconscious mind with these desires, setting the stage for their manifestation. This process requires a detailed and sensory-rich visualization practice.
  2. I Am Statements: Wishes Fulfilled highlights the transformative power of the words “I am.” By using positive affirmations starting with “I am,” we declare our desires as present realities. This technique shifts our internal dialogue and self-perception, fostering a mindset conducive to achieving our goals.
  3. Living from the End: This concept is about living as if our wishes have already been fulfilled. This involves embodying the feelings, attitudes, and behaviors of our desired state, which attracts the physical realization of our desires into our lives.
  4. Alignment with Higher Self: Central to the Wishes Fulfilled, is the idea of aligning our intentions with our Higher Self or divine nature. This alignment ensures that our desires are in harmony with our true purpose and the greater good, enhancing their likelihood of manifestation.
  5. Faith and Trust: The book underscores the importance of unwavering faith and trust in the process. Believing without a doubt that our desires will manifest is crucial, as doubt and fear can hinder the manifestation process.

Inspiring Quotes From Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering The Art of Manifesting:

Your Attention is Everything:
“Whether it’s your health, wealth, happiness, or any other element of your entire life experience, it is essential to keep in mind the importance of the movement of your attention. You must be obstinate and persistent in not allowing the viewpoints or information of others to alter your inner world. You know what you wish to become and what you would like to manifest for yourself.”

Remember this:
“Remember those three magic words: You are God.”

Your Future Dreams:
“Make your future dream a present fact, by assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled.”

Be Willing to Challenge Yourself:
“I have a burning desire—an inner flame that will not be extinguished by outer forces—to know and live from higher regions, to be transformed so that my new concept of myself will no longer include any limitations. I am willing to challenge and change any thoughts that impede my having a higher vision of myself.”

Imagine Your Desires:
“Keep in mind this basic axiom—if all that now exists was once imagined, then what you want to exist for you in the future must now be imagined.”

Everything You Believe About Yourself:
“What Is Your Self-Concept? Simply put, your concept of yourself is everything that you believe to be true. And everything that you believe to be true about yourself has landed you precisely where you live and breathe every day of your life.”

What You Need to Learn:
“Allow yourself to become aware of the nonphysical reality that you are a part of. Reach out to the angels or occupants of this higher invisible plane. Know that you can access guidance from those who’ve lived here before.”

“Make your future dream a present fact, by assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled.”
