"An important step towards a new consciousness that will change the planet." -- Paolo Coelho
Have you ever ignored a coincidence -- and wished you hadn't?
Have you ever denied the truth of a dream -- and wished you didn't?
Have you ever disregarded a hunch -- only to regret it?
Then you have heard the new language of God.
Albert Clayton Gaulden, founder and director of the Sedona Intensive, believes that the new language is God's mother tongue, the language in which His messages and guidance are expressed. Experiential and laden with messages, the new language isn't spoken chiefly in words (though sometimes it comes to us that way); it is rich in signs, symbols, wonders, and coincidences. When we open ourselves up to the new language, we can open ourselves to a larger and better life. When we learn to be receptive to the new language, we can begin to understand its unique grammar and rules, and to benefit from its grace.
Signs and Wonders is an innovative work that offers practical strategies, anecdotes, case studies, and stories of personal transformation to expand our awareness of the new language. It teaches us how to listen to God and to understand the answers to our prayers, to know if we are on the right track when plagued by worry, doubt, and uncertainty. Focusing on the process that the author uses in his groundbreaking work as director of the Sedona Intensive, Signs and Wonders can help us all to learn how to clear "God's channel" and to master a new form of communication.
"If prayer is about talking to God, the new language is about listening for His answers."

Excerpt from Signs and Wonders by Albert Clayton Gaulden
Once, a very long time ago, the world turned almost good for a day. For the space of twenty-four hours, there were no wars, no private murders, no rapes, no robberies -- some small cruelties, but no major crimes.
Satan was displeased. He summoned the most reliable of his demons and said: "What's happening "
"I don't know, my lord."
The demon flew up to earth, looked about, and flew back. Demons are quick. "It's a book," he said. "People have been reading it."
"What book "
"I hesitate to use such a term before your dark majesty."
"The Bible, eh "
The demon shuddered.
"The Bible. Very well, we'll take it away from them."
"Make it unreadable. That's your job."
"I am at your service, my lord, but I do not quite know how to proceed. God's word is immutable, is it not "
"God's word is immutable, but clerks make mistakes. Translators, too, are prone to error. That's where we come in. Am I not the father of error Go up there and darken counsel."
"Can you be more explicit, my master "
"That collection of books called the Bible is drawn from many different writings: Egyptian hieroglyphics inscribed on tomb walls, Chaldean cuneiforms on broken stone tablets, fragments of Hebrew script on rotting papyrus and moldering sheepskin scrolls. All this feeds confusion. Even better, ancient Hebrew was written without vowels, ancient Greek without punctuation or division between words. Translators reading Hebrew cannot really tell whether a word is pet, pot, put, or pit, shut, shot, or shoot. Take this sentence: 'Baalisnowhere.' Someone translating from the ancient Greek can choose between two opposite meanings: 'Baal is now here,' or 'Baal is nowhere.' See the possibilities "
"Where do I start "
"Start and end with the stories. Don't bother with the tomes of law; nobody reads them. Excruciating detail of priestly vestment, description of temple architecture, chapters on ritual -- forget it. Nobody looks at such texts except priests and scholars and other specialists. I want you to ignore all that material and concentrate on the stories. Stories are dangerous. They call up the reader's own experience and release energies of mind and soul, directing them in whatever path the author wishes. Stories grapple the imagination, engage the senses. A reader of tales absorbs instruction through his pores. Go up there and make the stories unreadable."
"Mix up the scroll fragments. Butt them against one another at random so that a story starts and stops and starts again in a different place, and certain phrases repeat themselves endlessly."
"Yes, sir, I can do that."
"Find an exciting place in a story and insert a stupefying genealogy, a string of jaw-cracking names joined by begat. From time to time, rip out whole sections of law or ritual and plant them bodily in the stories. So much for sowing confusion; I also want you to do some editing. Here's a pencil red as flame. Search among the tales and destroy the sensuous fabric wherein events must dwell if they are to pierce the heart. Strike out physical detail. Get rid of any word that describes how something looks or sounds or tastes or smells. As far as possible, eliminate dialogue. You can't get it all, but every bit helps. Follow my thinking "
"I believe so, my lord, and shall punctually perform your will."
"Make haste, my son. I don't know if I can bear another day like today."
The demon, whose name was K'miti, flew to earth and did what he had been told to do. It may be coincidence, but not a day since has troubled the Devil's mind.
