Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Self-actualization guru Dyer has a talent for appropriating age-old spiritual concepts and marketing them with buzzwords like "spiritual manifestation." Here he outlines nine principles for manifesting spiritual destiny, which appears to be synonymous with getting everything we want. According to Dyer, if we can just get out of our ego's reach, the power of the universe would act in us to bring us everything we truly desire. By putting worthy spiritual ideals to the service of personal power, Dyer subverts the meaning of unconditional love, seeing it as the means to an end rather than a worthy end in itself. Buy only where Dyer's books are in demand.

From Booklist

Best-selling author Dyer says this title is different from any other he's written, but his 1992 book, Real Magic, was also about "using your invisible self to influence physical reality." Here, the message is muddled. On one hand, he tells readers that inner peace should be their greatest goal, but, on the other hand, he offers techniques designed to attain more worldly objectives, like a new job. There's lots about meditating and chanting, and he supplies distillations from A Course in Miracles, but ultimately, the volume veers close to the low end of New Age gobbledygook. Still, Dyer's name and a marketing push are likely to generate requests. Order this book as demand dictates, but for a better, more down-to-earth approach to the subject of attaining one's goals through creative manifestation, tell readers to check out Sonia Choquette's Your Heart's Desire, reviewed on p.1071.

Anthony Robbins the famous motivational speaker states that people have a thermostat setting in their minds which is set at a specific success level. Anything lower and they scramble to get back to their setting, anything higher, and they tend to sabotage it.
Dr Dyer in this book takes a different approach. He mentions that people choose a path to enlightenment that is either suffering, goal setting, and the highest order, living on purpose. We overcome obstacles through our general approach to life through one of these approaches. Some through suffering realize enlightenment. Others approach life with goal setting. Hard work, climbing the tower, and they finally arrive. Finally the people who realize that their is a greater purpose for our lives, and get in touch with that reality. By living on purpose all things are added unto you. It is the ideal solution to our lives.
I remember seeing a bumble bee one summer, trying to escape to the outside world. Repeatedly hitting his head against the glass window. Flying toward the glass, hitting his head, staggering, recomposing, and heading toward the glass once again. Again and again, banging his head into the glass. I sat back from across the room and wished I could speak to the bee and share with him the information that only a few feet from the window was a wide open door. Through continual trying the bee could possibly exhaust himself to the floor, and maybe then see the opening to the door. Others may call upon their greater sense, or rely on their intuitive sense, or greater guidance, and find the simple solution without the suffering or goal achieving.
Are we living on purpose? Achieving our destiny? It may be time to stop and ask ourselves that question, and that is what this book is about.

I have read a large number of books on this topic (much of which I have put into practice and yielded results) but this manual is surely the foundation and bedrock of them all. Rather than implicitly requiring the reader "to have faith", Dr. Dyer explains the underlying principles of manifesting, then proceeds in a no-nonsense manner to outline the "how-to" of it all. It's simple and easy to follow, and above all, uplifting. Unlike other publications such as "Your Heart's Desire" by Sonia Choquette, which writes around the subject, Dr. Dyer encompasses both practical how-to together with a more spiritual aspect. There is no paradox between spirituality and wanting material things; both worlds go hand in hand together. A must-have book. (Other excellent accompaniments are "Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawain, and "Living Magically" and "Stepping Into the Magic" by Gill Edwards.)

I am not a fan of self help books. Like many people, I approach them with skepticism, maybe even think I am too smart for them, or go in with the attitude that the author's only intent is to try to make a quick buck.
All that, as a preface to say how wonderful this book is.
Dyer's suggestions not only work, but they are all rooted in the most high-minded concepts of love and faith. He has made the teachings of the New Testament come alive to me in a way I never learned in church -- though I do get more out of church having read his book.
This book is a masterpiece. My copy is dog-eared, and yet every time I open it, I am struck by his wisdom.
Manifest Your Destiny may sound like a new agey approach to taking, taking, taking from this world. Rather, it shows how living in love and faith attract all good things to you. I would have thought myself that this was too simplistic, but that is the talent and the wisdom of Dyer. Sometimes when I read this book, it feels almost like a holy text.
I might also note that while I realize Dyer is a very wealthy and famous author now, to read his works, I really believe he is a man who is interested most in helping people and bringing peace to the world.
If you want to buy one book about improving your life and living more in harmony and happiness, this is it!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wayne W. Dyer is the first motivational Author whose book I read years ago. I visited a small second hand bookstore in San Francisco and his book "Real Magic" fell down from the shelf, I bought it, and it literally transformed my entire life into a new adventure.
With his help, a high school student became a successful young man with a promising future. Ever since I have met miracles and real magic in my life day by day... and with his help I have been able to achieve wonderful results.
However, I am deeply disappointed at Wayne's book "9 spiritual principles". This book is the worst title by author who could write ten times better books.
This book is first of all written by confusing concept. Second, it does not really give you anything new if you have read his book Real Magic.
Third, this book rumbles over number of subjects, and it sounds rather unstable concept -- eventhough I know these principles do work.
After all, I lost all my excitement to read this book when I was in page 30, I laid down the book...and didn't read it for months.. Then I found it again, read it through twice, but still didn't like it too much.
You will do yourself a favor if you leave this title to those who are not familiar with spiritual laws.
IF YOU really want to read a good book, buy Real Magic by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. In my opinion, Real Magic is Wayne's greatest book and this is the worst.
Wayne -- I really love your books...but this time I have to admit that I am not very happy with these 9 spiritual laws. This book might be a wonderful one if it would have 50 pages less, and it would be more like Deepak Chopra's 7 spiritual success laws or something.
After my second reading I was pretty sure that this book is nothing new. It is like 3 or 4 of his older books combined in one with not so good result.
If you still want to buy this book...go ahead, maybe it will please you more and resonate with you more than it did with me.
