The Shift




I ordered the movie "The Shift", which features Dr. Wayne Dyer, in a full feature film. I didn't know what to expect because most of my spiritual education comes from books. Including a couple of his, which was always worth my time.

Up until now.

This film was really good. Is it a block-buster? No. It's a film for people who are feeling a shift in their spiritual life and would like information in a new format.

Throughout the movie little nuggets would be delivered that held special meaning for people in a variety of life circumstances. From the busy mother, to the angry businessman, to the average joe doing his job. Having Dr. Dyer share some of his personal history was also interesting. Don't you every wonder how some people can seem so enlightened, while the rest of us struggle?

Anyway, I will pass it along to one of you as soon as my husband watches it. It really should make the rounds. So if you would like to drop me a comment letting me know that you are interested in a film like this, and would like to watch it, I'll send it to you. All I ask is that you take some quiet time for yourself and sit and watch it alone. My computer worked great. There are times when you need to stop the movie, close your eyes, and think about what was said. Hard to do when someone else is watching it with you. Not to mention that I really didn't want a critique of the movie from my husband. I just wanted to absorb what was being said. I'm having him watch it alone as well.

Then do the same thing - pass it along. If more than one person asks for it, then I'll put the names in a hat and draw one on Friday. You can watch the trailer for the movie at the above link. You can also order the movie online for download to your computer. If you do watch it, please let me know what you think.

I began my enlightening/spiritual journey several years ago when I read Dyer's book "Your Sacred Self". Since then, I have read every one of his books. I am also interested in viewing his movie. I have alot of reading on my plate right now though.....

This is the first time I learnt of the movie.

There's much peace to be had when spiritual awakening helps one be in peace with oneself.

Wonderful. Thanks for the review, definitely feeling a shift coming on. I love your idea to pass it along! I always want to do that when I find something I really enjoy. (I've got Netflix so I will look there.)

Nancy, Thank you for the recommendation - I've always been a fan of Dyer so I added it to my queue. You have all sorts of great tips lately - my "to do" list is growing as a consequence!

I love watching Wayne Dyer on PBS, I could watch that guy read the phone book out loud. I would be thrilled to be involved.
