Manifesting your Own Destiny
by Douglas De Long

Think of your life as a ship upon a vast, unknown sea. You are at the helm, the wheel steering your own future or destiny. The fates are in your capable hands. Which course you choose affects your present and your ultimate future.

Many of you may believe that you have no control over where your ship or life goes. You feel as if you are on wild, untamed waters moving to and fro and at the mercy of the restless waves. You simply accept your fate. Your life unfolds as a ship on a stormy sea.

This belief is the farthest thing from the truth. In reality, you are the pilot who steers the ship as you hold onto the wheel. When you recognize that you have more control over manifesting your own destiny and your future, life becomes better.

As a human being you possess a magnificent potential to create your own future. The brain within is still a mystery to medical science. There is so much more to learn about this physical organ. It is believed that most people do not use more than five or ten percent of the brain's capacity. Imagine if for a moment you could utilize even another five or ten percent. Who knows what the outcome would be.

Now, most people think of the brain and the mind as the same thing. Many individuals will interchange these two words. In reality this is not an accurate statement. The human brain is a bio-chemical and physical organ. The human mind on the other hand is much more. It is part of the human soul and is attached to the higher realms of the heavenly fields. It is of a spiritual essence. The mind as part of the immortal soul controls the brain. When you realize this spiritual concept you develop a greater understanding of the power that is within.

As you seek a spiritual path, you awaken your psychic and spiritual abilities. You start using other areas of the brain when this happens. Within these areas are stored many of your dormant psychic abilities. These awakened areas allow you to use more of your brain capacity and unfold many gifts. This means you will be able to achieve more by the power of the human mind.

In my second book Ancient Healing Techniques areas of the brain where different psychic and spiritual attributes are stored are shown clearly within its pages. You can activate these dormant areas through special exercises or techniques.

When you are more spiritually enlightened you must be careful as to what you think and say. This is because you can draw in the manifestation of your thoughts and words in a very, quick manner. The old adage 'instant Karma's gonna get you' is a very true statement. So you strive to think positive thoughts and say positive things. This allows you to create positive manifestations or events in your life.

One of the exercises you can use to open your crown chakra at the top of the head is a very ancient exercise. The ancient Egyptians used this unique chant to awaken and open this chakra, thus letting certain areas of the brain energize and awaken some of your spiritual and psychic gifts.

This exercise or chant is covered in my books Ancient Teachings for Beginners and Ancient Healing Techniques. I will describe it quickly to you at this time.

The chant or sound to use is May as in the merry month of May. First get yourself relaxed. Then take about three slow deep breaths. This will allow you to slow down your brain wave patterns and quiet your mind.

Now take in a deep breath, hold it and the chant M-M-M-A-A-A-Y-Y-Y until all your breath has been expelled. Then repeat this same chant another two times in the exact same way. When you try the chant make sure you find a mid range with your voice. Do not worry about being musically inclined. Just try to find a middle range when chanting May.

You can do this ancient chant whenever you feel like it. I usually do it about three times a week. It has the effect of balancing your pineal and pituitary glands and awakening your crown chakra. As well, endorphins are released into your bloodstream making you feel better. It also slows down the aging process.

After trying the chant you may notice light-headedness or tingling sensations on your head. This is normal. It is an indication the exercise is working properly.

When your crown opens up you will receive energy from the heavenly fields above. You will energize parts of your brain, allowing neurons to fire into other areas of your brain. This awakens the dormant areas of the brain that we talked about earlier.

Once this happens, you are onto your spiritual path and are using more of your potential. It is a wonderful gift when this occurs. You are now more awakened or enlightened. The ability to create your own future becomes greater. You can also help more individuals on the planet. You can become a light which helps to raise the vibrations of others thus making this a heaven on earth.

Many blessings.
