Movie Reviews

Previous Movie RePackaged!!!!!
Dawn Johnson | Murphy, NC | 06/02/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"First of All, I love Wayne Dyer and I own everyone of his books, CD's, wisdom cards and now DVD's etc. He is an amazing teacher. I cannot for the life of me understand why his previous movie, "Ambition to Meaning" was sold under the new title, "The Shift". Hay House (where I made my purchase) should have made it clear that it was the same movie re-packaged. Nowhere was that mentioned in the write-up. Now I have two of the same and I really felt duped. I'm very careful these days where I place my money and it should not have happened. Yes, it's forgiveable!"
Be warned.

"This is an expanded version of the DVD "Ambition to Meaning". It contains the same movie along with some extras and interviews. It is not a totally new DVD."
Perfect movie to illistrate the most recent teachings of Dr.

"In the last 8 to 9 years Dr. Dyer's message has changed significantly. He went from self help psychology to spiritual transformation. I got a little lost. I tend to be a pragmatist..."give me proof" type person. His story was a bit above my head. This film is very much a narrative of what he's been trying to get through. It helps connect the dots. It was also very nicely done, well acted, very nice scenery.

It's a very good film and I recommend it.

In 2000 I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Dyer at a seminar he was putting on at Washburn High School in Minneapolis. I doubt he'd remember who I am, there were hundreds of us. He stayed and talked to anyone and everyone that wanted to talk to him. It was hours! He is one of the most peaceful people that I have ever encountered. I can say that he practice what he preaches, he is in service of others. I think I get it now,...Dr. Dyer...It took 9 years...but I get it. Namaste! Thanks for the lovely film."
When The Student is Ready - The Teacher Will Come

"I've been a student of Religious Science for thirty years. That said, I've been like a fish out of water for the last three or four. After watching his movie, and taking notes, I understand now that what I have been experiencing is a Shift from the morning of my life to the afternoon. I just didn't understand it was normal and had a name. I just knew, before I watched the movie, that I wasn't aligned anymore.

The movie is broken into real life examples of people experiencing The Afternoon Shift, and Dr. Dyer giving us little jewels of lessons about why the values and virtues of The Morning of our Life no longer serve us in The Afternoon of our Life. Our need to simplify our lives, the de-valuing of materialistic "stuff," the search for more meaning to our lives is explained in this beautiful and lovely film. In the Afternoon, Dyer teaches us that life becomes about serving others and letting go of EGO which no longer serves us in this new Shift. I was experiencing this but thought it meant I had lost my drive, or was in a different place. As Dyer says, I have ambitions now with meaning that transforms into purpose. I'm learning to live in process, sit still, and not force things in the universe. I'm preparing and believe when I am fully prepared, everything I need will show up with perfect timing. It is a difficult, but attainable approach for a Type A personality. But each time I watch The Shift (a much more appropriate title by the way), I feel a great sense of inner peace and joy.

The film teaches us that we're here to enjoy life and live in peace. We don't have to push so hard anymore. If you are feeling any of the lost feelings I was, then this film will, once again, align you with the universal source. I love this film, and wish there were more like them. I wish for everyone who is feeling worried, alone, scared, or older, to watch this film and learn. it is transforming in a glorious way.

PS I was disappointed to learn that the film had a previous title and wasn't disclosed when the expanded version was released, causing negative energy. I lived in PS and went to Ms. Hay's church. I put both Louise Hay and Dr. Dyer in high esteem, and they should repair this mistake and not let it , in any way, harm the trust so many of us have in both of them to bring us only the finest as the four virtues outlined. Sincerity and Honesty being vital components.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this golden nugget of a gift.
