Break the Spell--Open your Eyes and Ears--Wake up!

I have been writing Blogs for a few months and am on the radio weekly at discussing how so many of us are under a spell to celebrities and all their nonsense, as well as to a lot of spiritual hocus pocus that does little to take you on a journey within yourself. And included in my caveat today is a caution against sitting in front of the television day after day letting anyone—whom you overvalue and possibly revere and whom you think knows better than you do—tell you what books to read, what “ism” is in today that’ll be “out” tomorrow, what candidate for public office is good and which is a scoundrel  because they say so, and who is on his or her hit parade of movie stars they would like to be like or emulate and whom they think you ought to know as close as a television set can let you. As the old 50’s hillbilly song says, “Aint that a shame?” Utter nonsense and not worth the time you are giving them and their platforms.

There was a book written in 1995 entitled Snapping: America’s Epidemic of Sudden Personality Change by Flo Conway and Jim Siegelman in which the authors warned against falling under the swoon of people and ideas that can impede one’s ability to discern and choose what they believe and what doesn’t hold water. In my language I counsel clients and those who read what I have to say, “Snap back. Take your power back. I think you ought to watch who you are beginning to sound like and act like.”

If you think that television personalities and radio pundits are smarter than you are, know better than you do, think again (the operative word here is “think”). If they are smart enough to cause you to grovel like Ned in the First Reader, then why is the world and all its supposed elevated consciousness devolving faster than the speed of light? Perhaps, these pearls of wisdom that you are being offered up don’t hold water because they don’t give you the strategies and tools to change the only one you can—you! And for God’s sake and your sanity, get out of line with the unwashed oohing and aahing over books and movies and ‘big-pieces-of-stuff people’ because they are of the inane currency—‘what everybody is doing.’ As Nell Carter would say if she came back from the dead, “Give me a break!” Wake up. Come out from under the ether.

The only way the world will change is when you change your world. The only kinder, softer, gentler and interrelated and interconnected you will feel is when you clean up the trash in your heart and soul and not how many of the books of the month you read and do absolutely nothing to change your inner tapestry.

If I hear one more powder puff, “Dr. Feel Good” supposed authority sprinkle his or her dogma all over the sound waves with absolutely no substance I am going to throw up (or better still, begin to have a DO NOT READ THIS BOOK) category in this SI Newsletter and write more and talk more about who is standing in your way and adding to your trance state.

The only way you will get to the promised land of clarity and self-esteem as who you really are is to face down who you are not be changing your behavior.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

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.
