Albert Clayton Gaulden’s Revolutionary New Guide to Achieve The Ultimate Goal in Life: Finding your Authentic Self

You're Not Who You Think You Are

You're Not Who You Think You Are

Albert Clayton Gaulden is wise, insightful, straight, and committed to the authentic expression of each and every one of us. Join him on his journey and discover a surprise about your authentic nature.

Atria Books releases “You’re Not Who You Think You Are: A Breakthrough Guide to Discovering the Authentic You” (Atria Books; trade paperback edition; $15.00; ISBN: 978-1-4165-8379-0, December 2009).

Transpersonal Psychologist, author, lecturer and founding director of the Sedona Intensive, Albert Clayton Gaulden has influenced countless individuals from all walks of life—actors, athletes, financial specialists, teachers, families, psychologists, and psychiatrists—helping them to retrieve their authentic selves and to tap into the inner core of their power. Albert’s unique gift in the field of transpersonal psychology is responsible for his fearlessness when confronting his clients’ inner conflicts.

According to Gaulden, a part of every person is divine; however, in the bustle of our everyday lives, struggling with work and trying to create meaningful relationships with friends and family, we neglect this power within us. We become distracted by temptations such as alcohol and drugs, obsessions with food or sex, and we misplace emphasis on what seems to be important. The buzz of the world around us can override our authentic selves.

In “You’re Not Who You Think You Are” , Gaulden candidly discusses his own path to peace, and includes powerful, inspiring stories from clients who have used his self-healing and empowering methods. Gaulden doesn’t treat his readers as members of a kindergarten class, spouting feel-good philosophies in sound bites and snippets that sound great on talk shows, but rather as independent thinkers who can use his guide to truly explore their innermost feelings.

By dividing “You’re Not Who You Think You Are” into “stages,” Gaulden deftly lays out a concrete blueprint that will help readers take a hard look at the negative things that have been affecting their lives and help them discover who they really are. His lessons and strategies are extremely effective and cover an intriguing range of concepts, including:

  •     The use of astrology to provide accurate insight into character
  •     How to convert our self-involved ego into a powerful and positive force
  •     The personal question of “God or No God” and Gaulden’s conviction that one doesn’t need organized religion to find a higher power
  •     The idea that none of us is totally male or female consciousness, and that by not recognizing this leads to the failure of many relationships
  •     Our destruction or salvation lies in our hands. We must change ourselves to change the world
  •     The fact that nobody is going to make you happy but you
  •     To be free of the bondage of ourselves and others, we must heal resentments

Albert Clayton Gaulden did not create the lessons and stages in “You’re Not Who You Think You Are” so he could pontificate on his beliefs like so many of today’s celebrity self-help spiritualists. These invaluable lessons have become an integral part of his life, his personal growth, and his journey. It is his sincere wish to show others how they too can find what he found—a great awakening of your true, authentic self.

"Albert Clayton Gaulden is wise, insightful, straight, and committed to the authentic expression of each and every one of us. Join him on his journey and discover a surprise about your authentic nature." - Debbie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Why Good People Do Bad Things.
