What do you think about the paranormal and why do so many people reject these phenomena?

Since so many people link astrology with witchcraft and voodoo I decided to weight in and tell you what I think about the naysayers who still think that Wall Street is straight and that religions are shoveling the truth. I trust astrology bathed in intuition more than any other barometer or measuring stick in the world because it nails a person and his or her behavior better than a Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator or Hermann’s Rorschach inkblot test can. When I synchronistically met a young woman in Beverly Hills five years ago and followed her to the Kabbalah Center across the street. I discovered that Kabbalah teaches that one’s destiny is in his or her birth chart. By the way I don’t wear the red string or drink the water—I am edified by the teachings which reinforce what I have been teaching for years.

You must always use discernment before you buy into something that appears to be “out there somewhere”. There are a lot of disoriented fruit cakes who think they are Cleopatra or Napoleon and who believe that Scotty is going to beam them up any minute—I could go on forever about the fringe elements in society, but there are a lot of us decent, rather feet-on-the-ground types who pay taxes and get pissed off that a lunatic may get elected President of the United States or that there is a white collar conspiracy to make 1% of the money changers rich while the rest of us pay for the scheme, and when we bring it up the power cabal tries to marginalize us.

On the other hand, do not continue to believe in the cockamamie bullshit that you are hearing from the Church, the State and Science. If truth be told someone from somewhere had better be monitoring us because we are screwing up a beautiful world badly. Okay, so I don’t go to rallies and I don’t hang on to every word Art Bell says but I know that we are being watched and I know that a lot of us are getting intergalactic messages from dead parents, friends, killers, evil thought impressions as well as soothing hope and encouragement from somewhere. I write all the time about how I don’t believe in channelers (Clearing for the Millennium and You’re Not Who You Think You Are)—they seem to think they can make contact for you but you can’t. It is another manipulation to take away your power. I can teach you in less than a week to hear who you need to hear and how to interpret what you hear. Psychic phenomena have become a three-ring circus with no ringmaster worth a damn.

He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
