Dr. Wayne W. Dyer was the bestselling author of 20 books and had a doctorate in counseling psychology. He lectured across the country to groups numbering in the thousands and appeared regularly on radio and television. He passed away in August of 2015.
``Real magic,'' according to Dyer ( Your Erroneous Zones ), has nothing to do with sorcerers or fairy godmothers. It occurs in our daily lives when we let go of negativity and self-limiting beliefs about ourselves and our circumstances and instead pursue `` perfect equilibrium of the mind.'' Urging readers to ``realign'' themselves with the ``invisible world,'' Dyer offers concrete suggestions about how to ``get to purpose'' through service to others and unconditional love, how to become spiritual beings and how to create a ``miracle mindset.'' He also explores ways readers might improve relationships and find prosperity, personal identity and even physical health. Finally, he explains how ``real magic'' can be plumbed on the global level to alleviate world problems. With anecdotes from his personal life, Dyer illustrates his own ``magnificent transformation,'' testifying that ``real magic'' has led him to the higher awareness he cheers his readers toward. $150,000 ad/promo; author tour.
