The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: De Long

DEFINITIONS

De Long, Douglas: Douglas De Long (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) is a spiritual/personal counselor, past life therapist, and chakra master. He has studied and developed his own psychic abilities and spiritual growth for over twenty-five years.

Born with the ability to see human auras, chakras, spirit guides, and angels, Douglas was always reading books about psychic and metaphysical subjects. But due to the nature of his stepfather's profession, he and his family traveled for many years and his psychic abilities started to close up from lack of use. It wasn't until after a near death experience at the age of nineteen that he reawakened his childhood gifts.

Through numerous life lessons and years of metaphysical studies, Douglas was able to enhance his abilities and create a unique course that he has been teaching for more than fifteen years. In the past twenty-five years, he has regressed close to 1,500 individuals and students. He has been guided to put his knowledge and channeled teachings into book form in order to help human kind open up and develop their innate abilities.

Douglas De Long and his wife, Carol, reside in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where they own and operate the De Long Ancient Mystery School. Douglas is the author of Ancient Healing Techniques and Ancient Teachings for Beginners.

In my new book, How to Survive Mercury Retrograde (And Venus & Mars, Too), I emphasize that a retrograde planet can be used productively. A planet does not have to be moving in direct motion to get positive results. The backward motion of a planet through an astrological sign gets us to be more reflective and does, to some degree, slow down... read this article
