Overview

These are questions we all ask ourselves, but it's hard to get past conjecture or gut feeling to find any definitive answers. Now, in this groundbreaking book, David Hamilton looks at hard scientific evidence to bring us closer to understanding the balance between the forces of destiny and the power of free will.

Exploring the new scientific research into presentiment - how the mind and nervous system are able to perceive events ahead of time - David examines the origins and nature of consciousness and how the mind influences the experiences of our lives. Drawing on research in such diverse fields as quantum physics, epigenetics, solar cycles, astrology, and even reports of life after death, David shows that there appears to be an element of predetermination in life, but also suggests that there is much opportunity for us to take control of our own destiny, allowing us to shape our lives and our world with powerful results.

    Is Your Life Mapped Out? When I was little, I used to go outside

    Is Your Life Mapped Out?
    When I was little, I used to go outside and ponder the universe.  I used to spend hours trying to figure out the big picture. Was I just a microorganism in a giant’s world?  Do I have undiscovered super powers?  It turns out author Dr. David Hamilton spent a lot of his youth pondering the same thing. So when I saw his new book Is Your Life Mapped Out? Unraveling The Mystery of Destiny vs Free Will, I felt like a giddy kid.
    I came to know Dr. Hamilton’s work via another Hay House author, Dr. Robert Holden.  Robert had David on his Hay House Radio show a while back and I loved the way David was able to present scientific studies in a clear and concise way.  
    David started his career in the pharmaceutical industry researching the placebo effect.  The power of the mind fascinated him and he decided to leave the security of the corporate world to pursue his dream of becoming a writer and speaker.  “I had a depth of understanding of how the mind not only shaped the chemistry of life, but also shaped the chemistry of the body, and was will equipped to write about the power of the mind to heal.” 
    Is Your Life Mapped Out? delves into topics such as chronobiology, epigenetics and quantum physics.  Topics I have been drawn to lately.  This book is filled with lots “ologies” and “isms.”  Having majored in the sciences myself, I love all the technical, sciency, researchy terms.  If you don’t, still give the book a try because David has a knack for presenting the research in a way where you will eventually get it.  David uses lots of storytelling and examples from his own life to bring home the central idea of each chapter.  
    Now don’t get me wrong, at times I needed to read a section a few times before it sunk in, but we are talking heavy stuff here.  Things like how the lunar cycles affect our body, the power the mind has to change our genes, the connection of the conscious and unconscious mind, God and more.
    Today, I still ponder the universe.  I question if I am on the right path.  At this particular moment I am at a crossroads and I am confused.  I take comfort in an analogy David presents in this book, “the tree of probable life.”  
    The trunk of our tree represents when we were young and our parents made choices for us.  But as we move up the tree, there are multiple branches.  Some are sturdier than others.  Some are longer than other.  All these branches are there on our tree representing all the choices we have and choosing moves us from one branch to another.  “The bigger choices aren’t always easy – they can take real courage.  But they are there for the taking, and the situations facing us are there because we are capable of meeting them as a higher version of ourselves.  If that weren’t the case then we wouldn’t be where we are.”
    So here I sit, way up high in my tree.  The many branches I no longer see as overwhelming, but as exciting and abundant.  Is my life mapped out?  Some parts yes.  Some no.  Thank you David for showing me that you and science know that is OK.Some parts yes. Some no.  And I know that is ok thanks to David, science and the examples presented in this book.
    FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.
