Ep216: Discovering the Tao
Ep216: Discovering the Tao
An introduction to the Tao Te Ching.  Dr. Wayne Dyer held a seminar in Maui from every year from 2007 to 2015. Before he passed away in August of that last year, he was planning his next seminar for Jan 2016. He was going to revisit his book on the Tao. THIS IS WHAT HE WAS GOING TO TALK ABOUT NEXT. Sadly, Wayne never got the chance. He was going to study the Tao again and we can, too. He believed in the power of this message.  If you haven’t read the Tao Te Ching or Wayne’s book, Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life, I highly recommend it. If you’d like to join me in studying the Tao this year, you can view the events on my website or message me to learn more.  www.nadiadelacruz.com/events

Ep215: Happy New Year
Ep215: Happy New Year
Your approach to starting the new year is really an approach to all of life! How do you want to live? What do you expect out of life? What do you believe is possible for you? How do you approach getting what you want? What is important to you?  You are not broken and you do not need to be fixed. You are whole and complete exactly as you are. Deepen your connection to your inner voice. Everything you need comes from within. Start with LOVE. “Any resolution that involves you making decisions about long-range upcoming behavior is not only a waste of time, but it reinforces the self-defeating notion of living in the future rather than in the present moment.” -Dr. Wayne Dyer  www.nadiadelacruz.com

Ep210: Landing at Ram Dass' Door
Ep210: Landing at Ram Dass' Door
Tune in for a conversation about Dr. Wayne Dyer and Ram Dass, including some amazing synchronicities from my recent trip to Maui that led me to Ram Dass' home. (Recorded live in the Wayne Dyer Wisdom Community on Facebook.) Dr. Wayne Dyer played a pivotal role in Ram Dass securing the support that enabled him to spend the last 15 years of his life on Maui. Wayne had looked up to Ram Dass as a mentor and modeled his own speaking style from him. They later became friends, having dinners together and joining to speak at conferences on the island. In his letter, Be Here For Him, Now, Dr. Wayne Dyer had this to say about Ram Dass: "To me Ram Dass was and is the finest speaker I have ever heard, period! He was my role model on stage; always gentle and kind, always speaking without notes from his heart, sharing his inspiring stories and always with great humor. I tell you this from my own heart; I could listen to his lectures for hours and always felt saddened when they would end." "One of the truly great men of our time needs our help. I write these words to encourage your generosity and support. Back in the 1960’s a Harvard professor named Richard Alpert left behind the hectic world of academia and traveled to India—there he was to meet his spiritual teacher who gave him a new purpose to fulfill along with a new name. He of course is Ram Dass. His guru told him love everyone, feed people and see God everywhere. Ram Dass became a person who lived out this mandate—he did what so many of us could only dream. He connected to his spirit and devoted his life to serving others. In 1969 he wrote and published the signature book on spirituality and applied higher awareness, Be Here Now. In keeping with his commitment to love everyone and feed people, he donated all of the royalties and profits to foundations that did just that. With millions of dollars at stake, Ram Dass simply chose to live his life as a man of service to God. After years spent in India in pursuit of a higher more enlightened consciousness for himself and for our troubled world, he returned to the United States to lecture throughout the country. He spoke to packed venues wherever he went, and as always he donated the proceeds to such causes as would keep him in harmony with his mandate to serve. He co-founded the Seva Foundation and his writing and lecture fees were primary sources for this compassionate and inspired work." "If there has ever been a great spirit who lived in our lifetime, literally devoting his life to the highest principles of spirit, it has been Ram Dass. I love this man; he has been my inspiration and the inspiration for millions of us. It is now time to show him how we feel by doing what he has taught all of us to do—Just , BE HERE for him, NOW." www.nadiadelacruz.com

Ep209: Mid-Summer Check In / Be Here Now
Ep209: Mid-Summer Check In / Be Here Now
We are halfway through summer and I wanted to share a really human moment and check in with all of you. Below is some guidance that I received in a beautiful quiet connection with spirit. Take some time to slow down and just be present. Love to you all!  I'll be back with more episodes after the summer break. Drop me a line at www.nadiadelacruz.com. Life is not a checklist of experiences, it is a way of being in the world. Don't ask what do you want to do, but who do you want to be? How do you want to feel as you move through this space, interacting with all that is? Are you someone that is relaxed, present, flexible? Connected to your body and enjoying the sensations that come with everyday things? Paying attention to how you feel and noticing how others are feeling, too. Not chasing or pushing or pulling, but relaxing into a new way of being. One that recognizes YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU DO. Do not fall for the temptation of judging yourself based on achievement, appearance, or what others think of you. You are above and beyond all of that. Break the bonds and realize you are free simply by being alive in this body right now.

Ep201: Wayne's Wisdom for 2022- Reflections on the Pandemic
If you ever asked, "What would Dr. Wayne Dyer say about what we're going through now?" This is my response to that question. Dr. Dyer spent a lifetime teaching us the power of shifting your perspective to live a life with joy and purpose. In this episode, we are revisiting a few of his teachings that are relevant to the times we face today. Two years into a global pandemic and it's probably fair to say that nobody's life has gone unchanged. Individually and collectively, we have faced challenges that nobody saw coming. We do, however, have choices even in the darkest of times. The most important perspective I can offer you is this: Your experience of life is INTERNAL not external. Change your thoughts and your life will change. I want you to feel empowered to reach for new levels of health, wellness, and spiritual wellbeing. We have an opportunity to use the power of our minds to shape our life. Get exclusive patron benefits at www.patreon.com/nadiadelacruz.

My two favorite things to talk about are Spirituality and Dr. Wayne Dyer! I’m excited to bring you deep conversation with incredible guests who share their own stories of insight, awakening and transformation. Discovering Dr. Dyer in the 1990’s led me down a lifelong path as a spiritual seeker. He taught me to have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing. I went on to study topics such as The Law of Attraction, Angels, Tarot, and Shamanism, but Dr. Dyer’s teachings remain central to everything that I write and speak about. My name is Nadia Delacruz and I started the Wayne Dyer Wisdom Community in 2015. This podcast is made with so much love, in honor of my greatest teacher, as I continue to explore the many fascinating topics surrounding spirituality.

Ep08: Wayne Dyer's Father
An amazing series of synchronicities brought Dr. Wayne Dyer to his father's grave in Biloxi, Mississippi on August 30, 1974. He would later describe what happened here as the most significant day of his life. He had been living with rage towards the man who abandoned his family when he was a baby, never to be heard from again. In a moment of grace in front of the headstone of Melvin Lyle Dyer, he forgave his father. He declared, "from this moment on, I send you love". It was a major turning point in the life of Dr. Dyer and testimony to the transformative power of forgiveness. Adding significance to this date, 41 years later, Wayne Dyer passed away on the anniversary of this same day.  www.nadiadelacruz.com

But last December, after hundreds of women came forward, John of God (João Teixeira de Faria) was convicted of sexual abuse. In this episode, I speak with Jessie Asya Kanzer, a woman who went to see John of God and has grappled with the aftermath of his crimes. She wrote about her experience in an article that was published on Huffpost titled, 'I Found Healing With A Famed Spiritualist. Then He Was Arrested As A Sexual Predator.' Is it possible to separate the healer from the predator? We dive into the story of this Brazilian faith healer and explore the truth behind spiritual healing. www.nadiadelacruz.com

Ep03: from Psychology to Spirituality
Dr. Wayne Dyer made a shift from psychology to spirituality in the late 1980's, overcoming great resistance from his publisher. You'll See It When You Believe It was his first spiritual nonfiction book, published in 1989. All of the books that followed would continue to deepen his passion for teaching about God-realization and manifesting miracles. What was going on in Wayne's life to inspire such a change? Join me on this exploration of what preceded Dr. Wayne Dyer's shift into Spirit and the enormous impact it had on him, as well as all of us.   Get exclusive patron benefits at www.patreon.com/nadiadelacruz.
