Welcome to the Manifestation Station Q & A Series, where I sit down with someone inspiring whom I want to share with the world.
Today’s guest is an exciting one for me. Dr. Wayne Dyer is my main source of inspiration (and I am manifesting doing a Q & A with him. It is on my vision board, folks!). I believe he truly taught me the power of manifesting.
I met his daughter Skye a couple years ago when he spoke in Santa Monica and she graced the audience with her voice. Since then, our friendship has developed and I can safely say that she is one of the kindest people I have ever come across. Together, we are conspiring to make an amazing DVD in 2012, with me teaching yoga and Skye singing. Her voice is lovely as many of you who have heard her sing at her father’s talks or on PBS or through Hay House already know.
What you don’t know is what is coming next for Skye!
I want you all to get to know this woman because she is about to take the world by storm with her music. She plans to release an album of her own soulful music at some point next year where the world will get to see her in a new and profoundly different way. I chose Skye to start off the series with because I found her story to be so inspiring and to resonate so closely with what The Manifestation Station is all about. She chose to follow her bliss and take the road less traveled. And for that, my dear Manifesters, I love her.
She loves deeply and lets that love shine through her voice.
Jennifer Pastiloff: What are you most proud to have manifested in your life?
Skye Dyer: I am proud of so many things that I have manifested in my life but I am most proud of the love and respect that I have with my husband.
Jennifer Pastiloff: How much of your dad’s (Wayne Dyer) philosophies and words do you live by?
Skye Dyer: I truly live by all of my parents philosophies. I am who I am because of all the wisdom and knowledge that they have bestowed on me, and the freedom to decide if these ideas mesh with who I am. I never take for granted how lucky I am to have been raised by two of the most spiritually intelligent people I have ever met.
JP: One of my favorite stories to hear your dad share is when you wanted to leave school to follow your bliss and be a singer. Can you share with us a bit about that. Not everyone is as much a Wayne Dyer fanatic as I am, so some do not know it.
SD: I have always known my true passion was for music and truly believed in my ability to sing. I was at college studying Jazz Vocal and at school they were constantly reminding us of how it would be very difficult to excel in this profession and that very few of us would be successful, possibly none at all. These ideas did not gel with what I had been taught my whole life, and that was to never put limitations on yourself, and all they were doing was trying to limit our potential. I decided that I was going to switch majors and sing because I loved it and for no other reason. I then decided to leave school and start traveling with my father and gain some experience by singing in front of his audiences. It was the best decision of my life 🙂
JP: What is your favorite part about traveling with your dad?
SD: Getting to spend time with one of my favorite people in this world. My dad is truly the most intelligent person I know and I love that I am constantly learning when I am around him. He also is the most humorous person I know so I love that we are always laughing. Basically my dad is the greatest and I love him.
JP: Knowing you personally, I know there is something else waiting for us in terms of Skye Dyer music. What is next for you?
SD: More songwriting that really expresses who I am and what is going on around me or within me. I am always exploring and traveling the world so that I can connect with people thru my music. Hopefully people will finally really know me!
JP: What or who inspires you most?
SD: People that are living a life of service and on purpose, they inspire me the most.
JP: What is Skye Dyer manifesting for 2012?
SD: I am manifesting songs from my heart and the ability to truly touch people with my voice.
JP: I have set of rules. See below. What are some of Skye’s rules?
1. If you have the choice to be kind or right, always be kind
2. Love with an open heart
3. Remember to laugh at yourself and others
4. Be grateful and enjoy every moment
5. Never care about anyone’s negative opinion it is their opinion not yours
6. Become obsessed with something you love
7. Sweat and meditate everyday
8. A little wine never hurt anybody
JP: If you could thank one person right now, who would it be?
SD: I would thank my husband for loving me unconditionally and always believing in me no matter what.
JP: My dream was to be on Good Morning America. Did it! My next dream is to tour with your dad to at least one city and have him give me a blurb for my upcoming book. ( It’s also to raise at least $500,00 for Prader Willi Syndrome research.) If you could have one dream come true in regards to your music, what would that be? THE WORLD IS LISTENING.
SD: I want my album to come out this year, a collection of songs that really shares who I am with the world, to be touring and singing those songs for people everywhere. And loving every second of it.
JP: I am excited that we are partnering up for my yoga dvd, and even more excited about how our friendship has developed. For those that don’t know, I am a firm believer in ” ask and you shall receive.” The burning question is: Do you practice yoga?
SD: Lol I knew you would ask me this. I do practice yoga but I am not as diligent as I should be, maybe you can whip me in shape 🙂
JP: How does family play a part in your life?
SD: My family strongly shapes every part of my life. They are my world and I am so grateful for each and every one of them. They are all my teachers and my best friends and I don’t know what I would do without them.
