Make the Shift

 

In a beautifully inspiring and uplifting film entitled The Shift, best-selling author Wayne Dyer, along with actress Portia de Rossi and others, explores the journey to finding meaning and purpose in our lives.

This powerful movie, and the book by the same name, discusses a shifting away from the dictates of our ego which focuses on achievement and accumulation; to focusing more on serving and giving back.

This process is effectively illustrated throughout the course of the film, as we observe the following scenarios:

  1. An overachieving businessman who has forgotten what love means.
  2. A mother of two young children nurturing everyone but herself.
  3. A film director trying to make a name for himself that will make him worthy in his own eyes.

Through their struggles, we witness a turning point in each of their lives, which ultimately leads them to experiencing a deep sense of personal satisfaction and fulfillment.

They experience a shift in their thinking and priorities about what really matters in life, and teaches us how to find the path to our greatest joy as well.

    • Hi Carolyn! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. What I love about this movie and others like it, are all the healthy reminders. Particularly, being reminded about the importance of self-care verses being selfish. For instance, one of the characters in the movie gave up her passion for painting when she had children. The point was made, that she needed to return to her painting, and stop neglecting herself in order to just care for others all the time.

  1. The music is soothing in the video. It clams my heart and open my mind to start thinking about my priorities. I will put the movie down on my to watch list.
