Read an Excerpt


You have the power within you to attract to yourself all that you could ever want. This is the central theme of Manifest Your Destiny, which is unlike any book I have previously written. I have chosen to write about this subject of manifesting because I have been drawn to it, rather than because it is the next logical step in the progression of books that I have produced over the past two decades. I seem to have been drawn to the subject by a force that will not allow me to ignore it.

As I began writing, I felt a kind of humility, along with a feeling of arrogance, about taking on this subject matter. These feelings created questions such as: Who am I to write about this capacity to manifest? What do I really know about manifesting in the first place? Isn't this territory reserved for divine beings? What gives me the authority to tell others about an ability that is unique to the gods? These questions swirled around inside me; I was motivated by more self-doubt than I like to acknowledge.

As I began the task of writing these spiritual principles, I had no idea what I would be saying and how I would say it, nor how many principles were involved. And then I did what I have encouraged my readers to do in my most recent book, Your Sacred Self. I banished all my doubts and began listening to the inner voices that kept telling me I would receive the guidance I needed, and that I would not be alone in this project. In other words, I surrendered and went deep within in my meditations and allowed myself to release all fear and doubt and, simply, to trust. A part of me knew that the ability to manifest into the material world from the unseen world of spirit is possible for all of us. I believed this because the words of all the great spiritual teachers encourage us to see ourselves as unlimited and to know that even the least among us has the divine power of God available at every moment of our lives. But to actually write this in a book, and provide the spiritual principles that one must learn and master in order to do so, seemed a daunting task.

It was at this time, as I was considering writing these principles even though I had no clear idea what they were precisely, and in what order they should be presented, that I received a message from a teacher named Guruji, to whom this book is dedicated. In this message, Shri Guruji instructed me to listen to a tape on the power of manifesting and to practice, in my own life, what I was being taught, and then to present this manifesting technique to the world. He explained that the ability to manifest had been known and practiced by great sages and teachers in the East for thousands of years and has continued in much secrecy for centuries.

I listened with great interest, and began to practice, just as they are presented in this book, the manifestation principles in my daily meditations. I experienced astonishing results almost immediately. I then began to include a discussion of these results in my lectures and to teach these spiritual principles, which I had begun practicing in my life, though without cataloguing or organizing them in any way.

A few months later I produced a compact disc/cassette tape titled Meditations for Manifesting, and thousands of people began to use these principles and practice the manifesting meditation techniques. The results have been mind shattering. People who are using these techniques and sound meditations have written to me from all over the world.

The sound meditation, described in this book, has produced amazing manifestations in the lives of many people. I have heard stories of manifesting job promotions, having a baby, which was supposedly an impossibility, selling a home that had been on the market for years without potential buyers, and other stories of prosperity and healing that border on being miracles.

I know that these principles work. Their miraculous power is not based on a belief, it is a knowing. I know that we have divine power that has gone untapped primarily because of our conditioning. I know that you, if you practice these nine principles studiously, can begin to manifest for yourself virtually anything that you are capable of conceiving in your mind.

I am aware that entering this realm of manifesting is like walking down an unfamiliar path. When you decide to enter the unknown, you obviously cannot know for sure what is ahead. I ask you, therefore, to avoid cluttering this path with preconceptions. Make an effort to read these principles and begin to apply them in your daily life, without judging them based on what you have been conditioned to believe about yourself as a person who is "only human" and, therefore, limited. Preconceptions will only serve to contaminate your unlimited potential for manifesting your heart's desire. What you desire is of central importance, though you may never before have thought of desire and higher spiritual awareness as compatible concepts.

It is impossible to imagine a world without desire. To create is to desire. Even the wish to be desireless is a desire. The process of creating anything begins first with a desire. Your desires, cultivated as seeds of potential on the path of spiritual awareness, can blossom in the form of the freedom to have these desires in peace and harmony with your world.

Giving yourself permission to explore this path is allowing yourself the freedom to use your mind to create the precise material world that matches your inner world. That inner world is the one which is the catalyst for determining your physical world experiences. You will have to abandon the idea that you are powerless over the circumstances of your life. You will need to shift out of the group mentality that says you are incapable of manifesting. Group thinking inhibits your natural abilities to co-create your life as you desire it to be.

This is an awesome book that generates results! I've been a fan of Dr. Dyers since my teens and this one tops the list. I highly recommend this to anyone who has already decided on what they want in life whether it relates to finances, relationships, spirituality, leadership, love, career, etc. The excercises and mantras listed in the book will help you to focus and channel your energies to manifest what you want in life. I started trying out the chants such as OM and AHHH with a vision of what I wanted going out in the universe. I imagined in my mind that my latest book titled "Psychology of the Hero Soul" was on its way to bestsellerdom. All of a sudden things started to happen. I started getting testimonials for the book. Speaking engagement opportunities. And I was able to launch my website herosouldotcom in record time! The right people started coming into my life. By trying out these excercises I'm sure you will be headed on the right road to success and manifesting your destiny! Try it out for at least 30 days because it takes at least 30 days to form any new habits. Hold a vision in your mind of yourself accomplishing what you desire with feeling exponentially multiplied and chant AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Imagine your request going out to the entire universe and you will be amazed at the results!

In this series of teaching, Dyer stresses your ability to have what you want in life by choices and by ridding your mind of pre-existing negations. He promotes self-esteem, hope and peace. Trish New, author of The Thrill of Hope, South State Street Journal, and Memory Flatlined.

"I consider Wayne Dyer to be the West's version of a guru. He has been writing fabulous self-help books for over 30 years. As he continues to evolve his own wisdom, he expertly translates complex, universal spiritual principles into convenient, readable formats that most of us can understand right away. This is one of my favorite books but all of his books are a good place to start for Seekers."

I found this book to be a very good one for gently guiding us back to the oath we need to be on.

Coincidently, all those who bought this book also bought Converations with God. After reading Conversations with God, I went to the book shop and the book fell on my head. Unbelievable but true. While looking for a book on the bootom shelf, this book fell from the top shelf on my head. I also went against my beloved husband who told me not to buy it. I bought it and hid the book but he happened to find it and miracoulously, he was not mad at me despite me making him wait at the British Council library for 2 hours.

Though I like most of the motivation and transformational speakers and writers and I'm interested in quantum physics, as a Christian this book is just a bit too weird and "out there" for me. Not doin it.

Every woman should read this book and every man should buy the women in his life this book. Empowering women worldwide with knowledge about their own bodies in the most practical of terms, this book covers a broad range of women's health issues with the balanced yet practical wisdom of mind-body wellness. I recommend this book to all my friends and it has been a permanent addition to my favorite books collection. This book was a foundational book for me and gave me greater understanding into both my body and mind. Christine is a wonderful teacher, mentor and true healer.
