Manifest Your Destiny
Wayne W. Dyer - 1997
Wayne Dyer established new ideas that changed peoples' lives. In "Manifest Your Destiny," he explores his most astonishing subject yet: the power of attracting one's needs and desires into one's life."Manifest Your Destiny" is a stunning work that focuses on the ancient principle of manifesting through the timeless art of meditation. With characteristic insight and clarity, Dr. Dyer teaches the process of meditation as a way to streamline our thoughts, desires and goals, and to bring what we most desire into our lives. Whether we realize it or not, we all struggle with built-in societal barriers that obstruct our inner potential. When we fall into a dream state-either in sleep or during a down moment of the day-we conceive of goals and desires that are more spectacular than those we entertain when "awake," yet we always wake thinking, "I can't do that." It is this conditioned response that prevents us from achieving what we want, and it is this response that Dyer teaches us to overcome through his Nine Spiritual Principles of Manifesting. These principles clear away that which constricts us and illuminate a new path to achieving our truest goals."Manifest Your Destiny" is Wayne Dyer's most exciting and accessible work, a remarkable guidebook that shows us how to have what we truly desire.
