I wanted to be Wayne

“I want to be the next Wayne Dyer”WayneDyer

I used to say that to just about everyone when I was in my 20’s and 30’s. I devoured every book and audio Wayne published – dog-earring and listening to them hundreds of times.

This man, this legend, helped me see that there was more to life than meets the eye. He inspired me to BE and BECOME so much more than I had been allowing myself to be. I would often recite Wayne’s points and jokes – even his mannerisms – in talks I gave, or with my students. Yet I could never quite carry that aura of “all knowing sage” which he held with such ease.

As I got older I understood more of what he was talking about, changing what I said from “I want to be the next Wayne Dyer” to “I want to be the next Rhys Thomas.”

Big shift.

Of course, there was a caveat: I wanted to help other see their inherent sacredness like Wayne Dyer had done for millions of people.

At some point I realized that I was never going to be the world class speaker that Wayne was. Still, I found my own on stage speaking style, and while my “style” might make a pro like Wayne cringe, it’s still fun for me, letting me share my message with humor and humility.

I only saw Wayne Dyer once on stage in Boston and had the opportunity to talk to him on the break. He shared a story about his work with hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, and how Gretzky used his psychic talent to be as good as he was… I will never forget his face telling me that story because he validated for me, the first time, experiences I had had as a competitive athlete.

I even sent Wayne my first attempt at a book manuscript in my 40’s. He kindly returned it to me with one of his own books as a gift, along with note saying he really couldn’t be reading other people manuscripts but wished me luck with it.

At the  Rhys Thomas Institute I still use one of Wayne’s earliest works as the very first step into my 3 year Life Mastery Training program. His “How to Be a No Limit Person” audio, by Nightingale Conant, isn’t only essential Dyer, it’s essential for life.

Wayne Dyer even provided us with a perfect tribute for his passing.  On one of his audios he quoted a eulogy. All I remember are parts but it was something like, “I want it to be said of me when I die that, First of all he was marvelously alive, and in a world lost in a sea of mediocrity we owe him a great gratitude for awakening us and teaching life to throb to a swifter and faster beat in each of us.”

He did far more than that.

I wrote my bestselling book, Discover Your Purpose from a seed planted many years ago by Wayne Dyer. I don’t remember the exact words, but the mean was clear: The most important thing you must have to live a fulfilled and authentic life is a sense of purpose. He was right.

God bless your soul Wayne Dyer, you have blessed so many by embodying your life purpose with such clarity, courage and grace. I feel your loss on the planet already, yet I’m eased in the knowing that your legacy will live on for generations.

In peace,


Rhys Thomas

Rhys Thomas, the founder of the Rhys Thomas Institute, has turned the art of energy healing into a science of personal empowerment.

My name is Rhys Thomas and when I turned 40, I wanted to know “why” even though I appeared to be successful in almost every part of my life and career, I still felt empty.
I became a personal growth junkie for year with no real shift. Then I got serious and attended a 4 year training in energy medicine that introduced me to chakras and so much more. Energy healing, combined with my love of marital arts helped me realize that I was not empty I had just blocked my ability to feel and see through all of my energy centers. I had blinders and didn’t know it. I was putting more attention on living societies dream of success, not my soul’s. But even this did not fully heal me, there was something missing. That is why I create my 4 Dimensional Healing system that that has awakened and deep send of empowerment, love and fulfillment in thousands of people who have worked with me. 30 day to Self-healing Through the chakras is the first leg in this system.

Now I am thrilled to be giving to you what took me 20 years to create in this 30 day training. I wish someone had give it to me 30 year ago.

This information is life like dynamite for anywhere you are stuck in your life or feeling disconnected, it has changed the lives of thousands in my programs and the institute. Now its your turn to use this wisdom to take your life, like I did from empty to fulfilled, energized and joyous.

When you say “YES” to this awakening and evolutionary journey up through the chakras you will unlock the mysteries of the world around and within you.
