My horoscope yesterday read, "You'll gravitate toward emotionally healthy people. They live with ease AND hardly ever find them SELVES in the middle of DRAMA. Being around this type, even for a few hours WILL make my whole weekend better."
Then I spoke with Dee Wallace...and how true!
As a New Yorker, I am really excited that Dee Wallace is paying us a visit next month. In addition to being a great actress, she is a healer, a channeler, and a self-help mentor to thousands of people all over the world. Because she is an actress, she loves going out and being personally involved with people.
She is going to be doing a seminar in New York at the New York Open Center Saturday, May 17th, from 2-5.
She is also setting up private sessions. The easiest way to take advantage of this great opportunity is to go to Dee's Website and go to The May Tour and sign up. In addition to New York, Dee will also be in West Hartford, Connecticut at The ATMA Center on the 18th. From there, Dee goes to Circles of Wisdom in Andover, Massachusetts on the 20th, and Leapin' Lizards in Freeport, Maine on May 23rd. Dee will also be taking part as part of The Susan Duval Seminars in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. It's going to be a fast and furious East coast tour. Dee did one of Susan Doyle's seminars last year and it was so successful and sold out. They got so much response that Susan set up this tour for Dee. The seminars are $55.00. The private seminars are $250.00. This is a huge discount over her standard fee.
Most people sit down with Dee and tell her, "I want this and I want this and I want this." Then Dee becomes
Dee works very fast dealing with the blocks in their energy and what they are focusing on. So many of us just think that worrying about "stuff" and trying to fix it is how we are going to get what we desire. It is really the opposite. It doesn't make sense to our brain and mind. Dee loves her work because it combines science with spirituality. Most are saying the same thing but you can really understand it from the point of view of science.
If we have never heard the word "candy" over and over and over in our lives, then we don't know what to picture in our minds. We don't know if we desire it. We don't know how to begin to start creating that for ourselves. Well, the same thing is true for a lot of people with money. We know what money is but the only sign off and the only connection most of us ever have is we don't have it, never have had it, and, therefore, never will have it.
Dee absolutely loves seeing people realize their joy and their power again. Dee has a gentleman that she is working with that was "supposed" to die of AIDS years ago. His count is now so high now that he can't even be termed as HIV. When people ask him what program got him to this point, he tells them, "Look, I learned to love myself, accept myself, and know how magnificent I am again.
This aspect of Dee's life absolutely goes hand in hand with her career as an actress. So much of her work has been fear based. She has seen every "monster" that you could possibly come up with. She has studied fear and the reactions of fear and has gone through the notion of "fight or flight" throughout her body. She can honestly tell us that no movie she has ever played and dealing with the monsters of those films can ever compare with the monsters she has dealt with in real life.
Like any good relationship, our perceived outcome is absolutely creating the result we are getting.
|as Mary Lewis in 10|
She thought she'd died and gone to Heaven. This was everything she had dreamed of as a kid in Kansas City. Dee thinks it is important to point out to everyone that she dreamed about it for that long and manifested it. She DID think it was possible. She also desires everyone to know that what you are reading here (and I hear it in her voice) is a clarity and power.
|as Karen White in Howling|
They also don't know from her past. She grew up incredibly poor. They were so poor that they lived with her grandmother. Her father was an alcoholic who ended up committing suicide Dee's senior year in high school. She lost her beloved husband, way to early, of eighteen years to a heart attack. He was fifty five. Her daughter was seven at the time. She has been hurt in the business a lot. Dee brought herself back from a pretty big "victim's" place. She believes all of this has been important in what she does. She knows that if she could move beyond this, so can you.
|as Mary in E.T.|
One disappointment for Dee was losing the made for TV movie, Adam about the kidnapping and murder of Adam Walsh on July 27, 1981. At the time, Dee was doing a movie of the week called Happy with Dom Deluise. The filming was overlapping by one day and the film crew that she was working with wouldn't hold the date for her and the other company wait for her and JoBeth Williams got the part. Dee has always regretted that. She really wanted to play that part. She has also always had a desire to play a nun!
Don't ask her why! She has no idea!!
This next question comes from Sarah Dashew who I recently interviewed.
What is your favorite season and how does it affect you?
|Donna Trenton in Cujo|
When I asked Dee what her least favorite memory of her career in show business is? She asked me if I had a year! Something, however, readily comes to mind.
|Saeah Fairchild in Killer Instinct|
Dee sat there and didn't know whether to be mad or angry, quite frankly. Dee had been in the business then about twenty years. She is now going on forty years in the business.
She then told them she didn't know how to answer that. She didn't know how to respond to them. She went into that audition putting her heart in their hands, knowing that they were professionals and knowing that they would KNOW what they desired and that she was welcomed there to bring
At this time, she is having a ball with Grimm! "Fabulous writing, an amazing cast, and they are all so nice!" Once again, she feels like she has died and gone to Heaven. They just finished filming the closer of this season. "Oh my God! You guys will never believe what happens at the wedding!" Whether you are a Grimm fan or not, the last episode is not to be missed.
She was driving not too long ago with a friend when she was asked, "Why is there this need to get 'stuff'. Everyone is always rushing to get 'stuff'!" Dee then thought, "Why that's a great name for a book!"
Most people want more money, more of a relationship, more and better health. They want the houses, they want the cars, they want more STUFF! In her book, Dee talks about how to get the stuff by getting all the principles in place in order to get the stuff. The truth of the matter is, if you desire to get the stuff, you have to get yourself in alignment and harmony with the stuff you desire.
The stuff that Dee desires in her life right now are all centered around paying for her daughter's wedding. She also wants to pay her home off. As mentioned earlier, Dee is from the Midwest. There are certain innate qualities that come with that. If Dee went to her business manager, her manager might say, "That's not a good business decision to pay your house off." Dee is saying to herself, coming from Kansas, the paradigm was that if you had a home, you were safe. That comes from her poor upbringing. As a child, that became a very prevalent message to her subconscious. When Dee, as many of us do, goes into her energy, dealing with intellect and our heads, Dee talks about balancing it all out in her book. When Dee goes into that energy of KNOWING her house is paid for, she can take a healthy deep sigh. For Dee, it is that sense of FREEDOM. Can she create that feeling of freedom BEFORE her house is paid off? Absolutely! She must if the house is ever going to be paid off.
The biggest change that Dee has seen since starting in this business is no matter how long you have been in the business, you have to prove yourself over and over again.
The biggest lesson that Dee has learned in this business is that SHE is the answer. The buck stops with her.
The universe cannot and will not help her to create anything if she has not CHOSEN, if she has not DECIDED, if she has not DIRECTED her energy to be in harmony with it. Everything starts with Dee. We ALL have so much power we don't even know is
A lot of times, for example, during the Olympics, we might here commentators say, "She had a lot of trouble in previous competitions, but she has a new trainer and they had to retrain their entire approach but watch her now and watch how accomplished they are in their sport." THAT is what Dee is doing. She is retraining what we already have been taught by people who really didn't know we were doing their best, in a way.
|Dee Wallace And Chris Mulkey in Grimm|
People knew she could act. They knew her qualities. They knew her professionalism. They knew she was going to always come through. At the most, she might be called into a meeting to talk about whether or not they all saw the character the same way and whether or not she still looked like her head shot!
Her agent called her recently. She was being requested to go in and audition for a mother. She would have two lines! Dee said, No, thank you." She has been playing mothers for forty years. They certainly know her presence on camera.
The pluses around this new paradigm are that a lot of new people get to be seen. They are always looking for new talent because they don't desire to repeat talent. When Dee was first coming up in her "heyday", when a series was on, if a character had appeared in previous seasons, they would want to bring that character back. If a series had been renewed, you knew you were going to have work.
Now, they are looking for something different each season.
Dee writes an E-blast that goes out every Monday on her healing. Because she is working one on with with a lot of people, she is having sessions all over the world every day. When she is writing a book, she always writes in the morning because that is when she is an open channel and ready to go. She sits with her pen and literally asks, "What am I supposed to write about today?"
She has an office specifically for her writing. She has a big computer there and prefers that room. She also has a second office where she does her private sessions.
Dee's greatest virtue is LOVE. She truly goes there with her self, with people, with her pets.She has a lot of love to spread around. Her biggest vice is often times she, in the past, has given up her self to enable others not to create themselves. "I'll do it, I'll take care of it, I'll pay for it so you can be OK." In those instances, Dee doesn't win, they don't win, the universe certainly doesn't win because they haven't learned to be responsible for themselves. THAT and chocolate are Dee's biggest vices!
