The Shift Movie Review

This article is a Guest Post about The Shift movie contributed by Marla Martenson, author of Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker and Excuse Me, Your Soulmate is Waiting.

The Shift by Hay House Films, filmed on coastal California’s spectacular Monterey Peninsula and starring Wayne Dyer explores the spiritual journey to find the purpose that is our unique contribution to the world. Wayne Dyer explores the spiritual journey in the “afternoon” of our life and what contributions we can make while here on this earth. The movie follows 3 separate story lines that all weave together. The film is an interesting mix of interviewing Wayne Dyer and the illustrative lives of two families going through a “shift” and ultimately finding the balance and true meaning and what is important in their lives.

The film crew filming Dyer also goes through a shift. As they listen to Dr. Dyer, they are transformed by his message. There is especially a big realization made by the character played by Michael Deluise, the son of comedian Dom DeLuise. He realizes that there is more to life than getting the bigger and better Hollywood deal and that creativity and being true to himself will bring more peace and happiness to his life.

The Shift will surely uplift and inspire people who are on their spiritual journey. Wayne Dyer quotes Carl Jung, which sums up the message of the film nicely, “Thoroughly unprepared, we take the step into the afternoon of life. Worse still, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and our ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.”
