I am in love

I am in love

with

my imagination.

The relationship I have with it now as an adult with a bank account,

mortgage,

and mutual funds

is more challenging than the one I had in my basement when I was 13.
I would lie in my bedroom with wallpaper-flowers, the Prince record blasting up to the kitchen, letting my mind play pictures and fantasies of what I wanted to experience.
Wishes and real-feeling scenes so far unlike the Iowa town where I lived.

It was ritual – to daydream. Daily.

I called it planning.

As a grown-up

I remember

my imagination is still my best partner, my friend

when I stop making it my enemy.

I understand

I must pause

breathe

and dream the same way I did in my bedroom with flowers.

A daydream, a plan, a mental massage that I truly love.

I hear you. I see you. I thank you.

He brought the GREAT message to me.

The message of REAL MAGIC that I could tap into by believing and acting as if,

then seeing my so-called impossible stuff turn into possible.

I thank you Dr. Wayne Dyer for that introduction  – listening to the cassette tapes of your voice reading to me while in my Los Angeles apartment in 1995.  The lessons in REAL MAGIC really turned me into a woman with wings.

I studied every text and podcast you breathed out into publication since then.  

I sat in your audience at the Javitts Center in 2009.

I read Anita Moorjani and Immaculee Ilibagiza.

Their stories nourished my humanness, taught me another level to love.

I keep thinking of you, Dr. Wayne.

This movie has been one of my great teachers, as you have called it yours.

Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.
