Gene Krackehl - Energy Healer

Gene krackehl When I first met Gene Krackehl, we talked about numerology. Many of the starter articles I have on numerology were from Gene. Then as we kept in touch over the years, we talked about energy healing - another subject that I was interested in but knew little about.

Gene Krackehl's website is called Amazing Healer and I think he is an all around amazing person. His healing work, based in Katonah New York (which is just north of NYC) was the recent subject of an article in his local newspaper. Here is an excerpt of that article and a link to the full story:

Gene has been in practice for 12 years in the area, and utilizes guided imagery, breathing, sound and meditation in a very unique way to help clients achieve a state of profound relaxation intended in which they can make deep changes at the mind, body and spirit levels.

Gene says that by working with energy it is possible to affect change on every level—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. An issue that adversely affects us on any of these levels, if left unresolved, has the potential of infecting us on any or all of our other levels. This is why many of our physical problems, even cancers, can be traced back to unresolved emotional problems.

Gene's specialty? "I fix broken hearts," he says with a smile. In his book, You Are the Healer, he shares some insights on how that can be done, and how you can learn to heal others as well as yourself.

Indeed, I had the privilage of seeing Gene healing in action when a group of us were filming a pilot for apotential television program called Access New Age about 5 years ago. Gene was one of the guests and he performed a heart healing on one of the co-hosts. She began to cry on the set! And said that she felt like a weight had been lifted off her heart after Gene's healing session. I think Gene is right when he says that a lot of emotional issues can stress our physical health. Thankfully Gene is there to lend a helping healing hand. Or is it hands?

You can learn more about Gene Krackehl's amazing healing arts from his book You Are The Healer: Discover Your Miraculous Potential to Heal Yourself & Others

Horoscope for the Week of January 24, 2011

Sarah palin sun in aquarius The Sun enters Aquarius this week setting us off in new directions and engaging us in a fight for right, justice or whatever. The point here is to pick your battles and wage them after you  reinforce your battlements. Don’t allow your flanks to be exposed, unless that is your plan....

Never miss your horoscope again -- free sign up here. Here is my favorite book on astrology and a "must" for anyone interested in learning more: Secrets from a Stargazer's Notebook: Making Astrology Work for You and here's a guide to the best books available this month.

Anything having to do with friendships take on greater importance and are featured in your most important plans. Expand your outreach, get on the best guest lists and place yourself at all the top events. Rams make a powerful impression on even those most impressive groups and accelerate their social ascent. Will you exceed the speed limit? That is the ticket!

TAURUS   (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Bulls find themselves at the top of the heap and maybe even crowned king of the hill. What are your aspirations and how can you get into position to make your ultimate evil professional plans a cool reality? Planning is everything bubbele. Step back and survey the corporate landscape before you pounce. The do so with confidence and the backing of the board..

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Legal issues come into the fore and you find yourself embroiled in the last vestiges of an argument about an issue that you have long forgotten. Tie up all loose ends as best as you can. Finish them by compromise or threats. Finish them and then go on with your life. It is all too short to sweat tiny annoying things. Go to Miami and sweat other things.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
You pack a lot of sexy zest in your strut this week. Don’t be shy, Crab. Strut it and show it off. This is a great time to get to the bare essence of any situation, whether it’s completely merging with another person or whether it’s ridding yourself of any psychological baggage that has been holding you. It is a purely a personal decision. So get very personal.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Think about what you really need in a relationship and make it happen for you. Lions need adoration and there is nothing like an audience of a certain someone to get you in the mood to roar. For those still prowling the plains, this week offers plenty of opportunities for happy hunting. But are you packing the right bait? It depends on what you want to catch....

Virgos are happy as clams this week. And why not? You feel productive and busy. Many long delayed projects are finally underway or can be launched easily. You are also ensconced in the middle of all the action at work. Every tiny detail needs your scrutiny and everybody seeks your cooperation. So what will you do with all this localized power? Heh heh.

Even though the official party season is over, that doesn’t mean that you should become a home drone. Libras need some festivities to keep their party hearty mood going. This week provides you with creative ideas that lead to fun events. Make up a powerful invitation list from the A to the Z types and mix and match. Could this spell romance?

Family issues that you thought you had left behind in 2010 are still hanging around this week. But this is not a bad thing.  Scorps now have the ability to reach across and find commonality with even the most extreme attitudes. Maybe this is because you are more mellow or maybe it’s because you have something sneaky up your sleeve. Whatever works!

Archers are not always known for their diplomacy but there must be something in the water now because you are both graceful and eloquent. Don’t question the fates. Just use what you have to get a few nasty things done. Pour your oily charm on the most irritating people and see what can happen. Then you won’t have to think about these pests again.

Money - how to get it, how to keep it and how to increase it - becomes your great obsession now. And that is not a bad thing. The best way to manage your funds will be to focus on what you expect to get out of it and then proceed accordingly. Do your research, take in lots of advice and do what you need to do to get where you want to go. First class or economy...?

Your sparking personality is on center stage now so make the most of it before they bring out the hook. Aquarians with a bag of great ideas can now take them out and show them off. Try some new things, experience new experiences. Before you know it, important people will gravitate to your orbit. Will you be a shooting star or a heavenly body? Let’s guess.

Hearing voices? Seeing visions? Don’t be surprised if you find that your powers of intuition are enhanced this week. Go with your gut and use any message to your advantage. Concentrate and focus on what is going on behind the scenes so you can plan your next big move. Pisces are primed for destiny and they can even feel it before it happens. But watch who you feel....

Lucky Numbers for the Week of January 21, 2011

Lottery ads tell us you only need a dollar and a dream. But I think it is also helpful to have a list of lucky numbers to help spur the good fortune ... or fortunes.

So with that in mind, here are some lucky numbers that can be used in any helpful way. I gazed into a pool of water, Nostradamus-like, and contemplated the cosmos. Then I mixed the tarot cards and allowed the spirits to guide me to the cards that represent the lucky numbers for this week. Nothing is guaranteed but who knows ....?

I choose eight numbers because 8 is the number of wealth.

Here are the lucky numbers for the week of January 21-27, 2011. Let's see if we can start off our new year with a flourish!

12,15, 26, 27, 30, 43, 48, 77

There are many ways to delve into your own consciousness to find luck and intuition. Try reading Dream Power/Improve Your Luck (Super Strength Series) and see if your dreams give you any clues and premonitions. Here's a guide to the best books available this month

Welcome the Astrology Sign of Aquarius

On January 21, 2011 the Sun enters the zodiac sign of Aquarius the Water Bearer and welcomes a 30 day period of idealism, democratic truth seeking, fighting for the rights of all and a bit of mad unorthodox behavior thrown in for good measure. Aquarians are considered to be the humanists of the zodiac and want to be able to reach out and embrace large causes and make a meaningful difference in the world. They are usually found in the forefront of any big cause, carrying the banner and yelling. And why not?

(Tom Selleck has Sun in Aquarius)


 Knowing what we know about the Aquarian nature, it should come as no surprise that several United States Presidents were born in the sign of Aquarius. Aquarians love large groups, humanity in general and big political and sweeping causes.  They love a challenge, so if you have your eye on a particular Aquarian, try to play hard to get (but first make sure that they even notice you...)

Aquarians are attracted to the off beat and unusual and they have a wry and ironic sense of humor. They do not blend into the crowd. They yearn to stand out and express themselves as individuals. And they have creative and inventive minds who can create masterpieces with bits of trash. Yet they can also be very logical, building up their reasons and arguments with careful consideration. They are also one of the most optimistic folks you will ever meet.


Famous folks with Sun in Aquarius are:

Abraham Lincoln

Hank Aaron

James Dean

Placido Domingo

Humphrey Bogart

Strange Asteroid Placement in the Giffords Shooting

Beach-caligraphy-1 Astrologer Alex Miller has penned this compelling astrological analysis of the Tucson shooting victims and the strangely coincidental astroid placements and aspects at the time of the shooting. Apparantly each victim is cited in the Tucson shooting event horoscope when the asteroids and their aspects to the major planets are added into the interpretation. Asteroids with such names as Gifford, The Judge and The Child lend an eerily accurate aspect to astrological prediction of this horrible current event. Read Alex Millers great analysis in the full article here.

I am fascinated by Alex Miller's analysis and want to learn more about asteroids in astrology. Here is a good starter book: The Ultimate Asteroid Book

Alex Miller is a professional writer and astrologer, author of The Black Hole Book and The Urban Wicca, former editor of "The Galactic Calendar," and past president of The Philadelphia Astrological Society. His pioneering work with Black Holes in astrological interpretation began in 1991, when his progressed Sun unwittingly fell into one.
