Wayne Dyer On The Art Of Manifestation: Author Explains How To Get What You Want (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Dr. Wayne Dyer, often referred to as the "father of motivation," has written more than 30 books over the course of his career as a speaker in the field of self-development. In his latest book, Wishes Fulfilled, Dr. Dyer explains how to master the art of manifesting -- or, in other words, how to attract what you want into your own life.

It's a deep concept, and one that Dr. Dyer explains in the above video from his interview with Oprah for "Super Soul Sunday." The art of manifestation is often discussed alongside the law of attraction, but, Dr. Dyer says, there is a fundamental difference between the two ideas.

"All of us have within us this amazing capacity to manifest and attract anything we want into our lives," Dr. Dyer states. "In [the book] 'The Secret,' they say you get what you want, what is missing… What has come to me… is that you say, 'I will attract into my life what I am.'... That's the difference: You get what you are rather than what you want."

To do this, Dr. Dyer says that you must be in alignment with your source, with God. This doesn't mean simply wishing for something and expecting it to appear. "You can't go around and ask these divine beings -- angels, whatever you want to call them -- to 'help me out,'" Dr. Dyer says. "You have to become like they are."

Instead, Dr. Dyer encourages people to become "angelic" -- to give, to serve, to be completely free of judgment and criticism toward all other beings.

But we're human, and human emotions fall across a wide spectrum. So, what should you do when the negative thoughts inevitably creep up?

"Even if your senses tell you that you're depressed... you don't say, 'I am depressed,'" Dr. Dyer says. "If you say, 'I am depressed,' you connect with depression and the universal source -- God or whatever you want to call it -- will align in such a way to offer you... more depression."

Dr. Dyer advises that people take a different approach. "By placing into your imagination what you want and assuming the feeling of that wish as already fulfilled, you go through your life feeling that," he says. "When enough of us do that, we will transform this planet."

"Super Soul Sunday" airs Sundays at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.
