Overview

Ancient Teachings for Beginners by Douglas De Long reveals the mysteries from the distant past and how they can lead to a brighter future in the New Age. It begins with a brief history of spiritual development from before ancient Egypt right up to the present. It continues by explaining the secrets of the aura and the chakras.

In this section you'll learn about the importance of the third eye chakra. It is related to the pineal gland and the third eye. Opening the third eye aids intuition, creativity, and psychic abilities. You can do this easily by "toning," "doing vibrational work" or chanting Thoh (rhymes with "toe") at a middle or high "C" note. This triggers a vibration in the pineal which cause the third eye and its chakra to open. The exact techniques are included in the book.

If you open the crown chakra (associated with the pituitary gland) you can improve some of your natural psychic abilities, including clairaudience, clairvoyance, and clairsentience. Vibrational work for this chakra uses the sound May. Breathing techniques and the exact way of toning to open the chakra are fully explained.

You'll also learn how to see the aura and interpret its colors, as well as how to open all of the chakras. The book also explains techniques to send the mysterious kundalini energy through the chakras.

But this book has more! It includes the secrets of channeling, such as working with angels and spirit guides. It goes on to share methods of astral projection and then reveals the secrets of reincarnation.

Ancient Teachings for Beginners is easy to understand and the techniques are a snap to use. If you are looking for an introduction to the secrets of the teachings of the ancient mystery schools, this book is for you!

Meet the Author

Douglas De Long (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) is a spiritual/personal counselor, past life therapist, and chakra master. He has studied and developed his own psychic abilities and spiritual growth for over twenty-five years.

Born with the ability to see human auras, chakras, spirit guides and angels, Douglas was always reading books about psychic and metaphysical subjects. But due to the nature of his stepfather's profession, he and his family traveled for many years and his psychic abilities started to close up from lack of use. It wasn't until after a near death experience at the age of nineteen that he reawakened his childhood gifts.

Through numerous life lessons and years of metaphysical studies, Douglas was able to enhance his abilities and create a unique course that he has been teaching for more than fifteen years. In the past 25 years, he has regressed close to 1,500 individuals and students. He has been guided to put his knowledge and channeled teachings into book form in order to help human kind open up and develop their innate abilities.

Douglas De Long and his wife, Carol, reside in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where they own and operate the De Long Ancient Mystery School. For more information please visit www.douglasdelong.com.

Read an Excerpt

Most people in the West believe in a linear theory of time: there is a past, a present, and a future. In some other cultures there is a more circular notion to time. We are seen as living in one of many repeating cycles.

In astrology, these cycles take about 26,000 years and are associated with the signs of the zodiac. For example, we are now moving out of the Piscean Age and into the Aquarian Age.

In each period or cycle the valuable wisdom of the past is reinterpreted for the present. That's why Ancient Teachings for Beginners by Douglas De Long is such a vital book as we regain the old wisdom to use in the New Age.

The ancient teachings in this book are as fresh today as they were thousands of years ago. The methods of strengthening the aura, opening the chakras, and moving the kundalini are as appropriate today as they ever were. In fact, with people so short on time today, not having to spend years in mystery schools to learn these techniques makes this book more important than ever.

Today, many people channel spirits without any "filter" for unwanted entities. Channeling spirit entities and angels is an ancient tradition. This book shows you how to do it safely and quickly. It has four channeling techniques along with methods to prepare this practice.

With this book you'll also discover the ancient secrets of reincarnation and how to project your astral body.

Today, there is a crying need for spirituality. I don't think we can or should return to the past, but I do think it would be foolish not to learn from the past and reinterpret what is valuable for use in the future. This book can help you take that step, enhancing your own health, happiness, and spirituality for tomorrow. I hope you will take that step with me.

    The one Metaphysical book to buy this year

    It is said in Martial Arts that elegance and simplicity are the secret to success and Mr. De long has achieved what few others in the field of Metaphysics have. In his new book 'Ancient Teachings for Beginners' he has achieved a blend of simplicity suitable for the beginner and combined it with the elegance of a master. With 'Ancient Teachings for Beginners' Doug De long has created a book that explains in simple language what Metaphysics is all about and combined it with the exercises that form the backbone of his craft. Like martial arts, Mr. De long has proved with this volume that to master the basics is to become the master. Unlike other books of the same genre, Mr. De long has managed to create an interesting and informative book that will intrigue the reader new to Metaphysics while at the same time teaching more in one volume than most books do in a full training series. Mr. De long will take the reader on an exciting trip into the past exploring subjects as diverse as the 'real' history of Christ to the Ancient teachings of Egypt and how they fit together to form the underpinnings of Metaphysics as we understand them today. In addition to forming a backdrop with which to understand Metaphysics Mr. De long has created a training manual suitable for the novice and the expert alike. Using this book as a guide it is possible for the beginner to master the key elements of Metaphysics. If you want answers, as well as a how to manual in plain language, without the padding and dogma so often associated with Metaphysics this is the book for you. Written in language that is easy to read and understand you will be seeing Auras, working with Charkas, and much more if you take the time to practice this books easy to master exercises. If all you want is an informative read then skip the practice but don¿t skip the book. If you buy any book this year buy this one. A must read for any serious student of Metaphysics or anyone interested in understanding this fascinating subject.
