Gregg Braden has spent much of his life traveling to ancient monasteries and reading ancient manuscripts.  He bridges the gap between ancient knowledge and quantum physics.  Fascinating observations!   There are many of his seminars on you tube.

 

Braden's study included ancient scriptures, some of which are in India and Tibet and which have only become available recently. He has studied the philosophical teachings and sacred sites of indigenous peoples in the United States, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, and Tibet.

DNA EXPERIMENT
Gregg Braden tells of an experiment that hints at the nature of reality. In this experiment, human DNA was placed in 28 vials. One vial was given to each of 28 researchers. Each researcher had been trained in how to generate and experience deep feelings and each had strong emotions. 

The experiment revealed that the DNA changed according to the feelings of the researchers. When the researchers experienced gratitude, love and appreciation, the DNA responded by relaxing. The strands unwound and the length of the DNA increased. 

When the researchers felt anger, fear, frustration, or stress, the DNA responded by constricting. It shortened and many of its codes were switched off! If you've ever felt shut down emotionally by negative emotions, now you know why your body was equally shut down. When the researchers felt love, joy and appreciation, the constriction was reversed and the codes were switched back on. 

This experiment was later followed up by testing HIV-positive patients. In these patients, feelings of love and gratitude generated 300,000 times the immune response than without those feelings. Apparently, one’s emotional state weighs in mightily when it comes to resistance. 

For Braden, the experiential world of feelings is very important; he knows himself and his world through feelings. His path, however, has also led him into the hard sciences and the corporate world, which denies inner experience. Ultimately, to survive, he had to find a way to reconcile his inner world with the outer world.

BIBLE HISTORY
Braden learned that in 325 AD, the Emperor Constantine was behind the Council of Nicaea to take all of the existing biblical materials and put them together into one text. There was no “bible,” at that time, but simply a collection of papyrus reed texts, scrolls, sheep skin documents, and tablets. Twenty-five books and an additional 20 supporting reference documents were removed from this collection; the Council condensed and reorganized what remained

.

The documents that became the original Bible were poorly translated and rearranged in the 12th century. So “the Bible” is essentially a Readers Digest, condensed version of a much broader text.  Braden doesn’t claim that there’s anything wrong with the Bible, but he asserts that it is incomplete at best. You can put the Bible side by side with these ancient texts and see exact wording and whole sections missing.

Among the missing or recently discovered texts are the Dead Sea Scrolls; the Essene Gospels of Peace: Books One through Four; Gnostic texts such as the lost gospel of the book Q; the Ethiopian manuscript of the Book of Enoch; and recent translations directly from the Aramaic of Nazarene texts that had been missing for centuries.

 

Four key principles emerge from these documents, the first two being:

  • Among all of the people on Earth, there is only a single consciousness expressing through many bodies.
  • This single consciousness is moving very rapidly toward a convergence of Human and Earth history that the ancients call "the Shift of the Ages."
The subject of Braden’s first book, "Awakening to Zero Point: The Collective Initiation," is this convergence. The Shift has been questioned, pondered, postulated, hypothesized and anticipated for thousands of years, Braden says. The effects of this Shift go well beyond religion, science and mysticism. Braden’s analogy are similar to that of the three states of water, which changes states into liquid, gas, or solid, according to temperature and pressure.

Braden asserts that humans are changing states owing to a lowered magnetic field and the elevated frequency of the Earth. Consciously vibrating from one state-space into another is known as "Resurrection" in Biblical terms. Resurrection means, allowing the mind-body-spirit to shift to a higher expression of itself. Through the conscious use of choice and free will, man is greater than his fear or perceived limitations. Complete resonance with Resurrection, followed by Ascension, is the goal of The Shift.

The ancients knew that higher frequencies and lowered magnetics enhances the possibility of ascension. They simulated these conditions for initiates in many of the ancient temples. What Braden emphasizes is that in our times, we all are initiates and that a global initiation is taking place. As true initiates, we all have achieved a certain mastery to be here. Our task, however, must be achieved through choice and free will applied to life’s processes.

Earth will no longer tolerate fear, hate, condemnation, or antiquated beliefs. Earth will support only a highly evolved frequency. This was the gift of the Christ—to anchor the information of this consciousness, and all of its possibilities, firmly into the consciousness of humankind. Through his life and Resurrection, Jesus’ experience was a metaphor for our lives, Braden asserts. Through Christ Jesus’ execution, he modeled for all of humanity a process that each will go through individually, as well as collectively. 

In the waning years of this cycle, every life form existing upon the Earth will have the opportunity to experience the dimensional transition as Earth shifts from a third to a fourth density experience; a Zero Point awareness and the choice of Resurrection over death. 

Many people report having always felt they were to do something of great significance in their lives. Some describe this feeling as a sense that they have been preparing all of their lives for something really big. According to Braden, becoming Christed is this event for this great moment, for which we have all convened at this time. Braden describes our "global initiation" as being a "global Christing" and that the challenges of our daily lives provide all of the opportunities for this initiation into our Christhood.

One of the greatest, and possibly least understood, messages of Christ Jesus was compassionate allowing: loving others enough to accept the scope of their experience. To the degree that any aspect of anothers experience is judged, we remain in the polarity of separation and the prison of that judgment, says Braden. Through compassion, we’re able to accept all experience as part of the One without judgment. It is not an invitation to callousness, void of feeling and emotion. Through this great allowing, we make room for wholeness in our own lives. 

WALKING BETWEEN THE WORLDS: THE SCIENCE OF COMPASSION
In his second book, "Walking Between the Worlds: The Science of Compassion," Braden describes the "Seven Mirrors of Relationship,” which are details he gleaned from ancient documents. This book shows how we are to use negative experiences and emotions in discovering and releasing underlying fear-based beliefs. 

Each of the seven mirrors is based on the premise that we draw to us what is inside; our outer world reflects our inner processes. Awareness of the constant external mirroring of our internal workings, provides the opportunity to shift what is "inside" and better create what we desire on the "outside". Braden emphasizes the word “constant.” He asserts that in understanding our thoughts-feelings-emotions as cause, and the world "around" us as effect, thus we can use negative experiences and emotions as our allies, as opportunities to release any underlying fear-based beliefs. We thereby come to compassion and our creative potential as spiritual beings. 

According to Braden, we all are here to embody the highest knowing available to us by aligning our lower emotions with our higher thoughts. Integration takes place in the heart. Braden distinguishes lower emotions from "heart feelings." In heart feelings, there is an integration of lower emotions with higher consciousness. If we can do that, we are fearless. Our essential natures come through, which are unconditional love, joy and compassion. 

From Braden’s study of the ancient texts, the last two of the four key principles:

An ancient science that gracefully carries us through the challenges of life—the science of compassion.

– We have today, and have always had, direct access to the creative forces of our bodies and our outer world, through a nearly lost technology called prayer.

– That we draw to us what is within our consciousness hints at the tremendous power, and the profound effect we have on each other and the world. 

THE ISAIAH EFFECT
Only one document was discovered completely intact among the 25,000 fragments of papyrus, parchment, and hammered copper known as the "Dead Sea Scrolls: the Great Isaiah Scroll." Nearly one thousand years older than existing copies of the Old Testament's Book of Isaiah, the twenty-two-foot parchment was still rolled and sealed in its original earthen container when it was discovered in 1946. The completeness of the Isaiah Scroll offers unprecedented insight into the power of an ancient mystery—a lost mode of prayer—that modern science is just beginning to understand.

Displayed today in Jerusalem's Shrine of the Book Museum, the Great Isaiah Scroll is believed to be so precious that it's kept in a vault beneath the building's floor in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. In "The Isaiah Effect," Braden suggests that Isaiah, the first Old Testament prophet, left precise instructions to the people of the future describing an unconventional mode of prayer.



Using principles recognized only recently in quantum physics, Braden demonstrates how Isaiah's nonreligious, nondenominational form of prayer transcends time and distance to bring healing to our bodies and peace to the nations of our modern world

.

Prayer in it's pure form transcends religion, it transcends mysticism and transcends science as we know it today. Maybe prayer is the best of what the three have to offer. It is science, religion and mysticism married into a technology that we have yet to name. Prayer is an inner technology, according to Braden.

THE SHIFT OF THE AGES
Ultimately, prayer and compassion prepare us for The Shift of the Ages and with it, the realization of a new, loving and cooperative reality that the ancients long ago predicted.

Our entire civilization has been based upon two central false assumptions that are still being taught in our schools today.

The first false assumption is that the space between things is empty. We are told, “ninety-six percent of the universe is empty space.” What is matter—or you could say, what matters—is at most four percent. 

The second false assumption is that our inner experience—our thought, feeling, emotion and belief—has no effect on the world beyond our own bodies.

Both of these assumptions have been proven absolutely false. That isn’t theory, it’s scientific fact, documented in peer-reviewed journals. It just hasn’t made its way into our high school and college text books

Though we were brought up to think strategically and tactically, reality transcends the strategic and tactical. We effect results by starting with the end in mind. We still put everything in place for what we choose to happen; we can’t just sit back in our armchairs. 

But we’re shifting from a purely Newtonian way of engineering and solving problems, believing that everything is separate and we must work toward our goal, to a quantum way of thinking, where we strongly and clearly identify with the outcome.

There is powerful video documentation from China of just how quickly the physical world responds to this language. In one video, a woman who is diagnosed with an inoperable, cancerous tumor, is in the presence of three practitioners who are trained in this language Braden has described. Ultrasound gives a visual of the tumor melting away and literally vanishing from the screen.

This happens not through thought but rather feeling. It is such a powerful feeling that the tumor responds and disappears in less than three minutes. This is not a one-time phenomenon; they do this for brain and bladder tumors all the time in this part of China. The same principle applies when groups gather to feel peace in a geographic region, or to experience the successful outcome of their project in a business.



Remember that it’s a feeling, not a thinking. Our success literature uses the term “think” in books like—Think and Grow Rich, The Magic of Thinking Big, As a Man Thinketh, The Power of Positive Thinking.  But thinking tends to be sequential, and is a natural outgrowth of a male-dominated, schematically-oriented, technologically-based, left-brained society. It’s no wonder we would take these principles and try to force them into the realm of what we think; that’s our conditioning.

ELECTRICAL and MAGNETIC FIELDS
But here’s the bottom line: our world is made of electromagnetic fields of information. If you want to change something in the world, you’ve got to communicate within that electromagnetic field. Interestingly, science has now found—and this has been published in peer-reviewed journals over the last few years—that the human heart is the largest generator of electrical and magnetic fields in the body!

Our brains generate an electrical and a magnetic field, but the electrical field of the heart is about 100 times stronger than that of the brain, and the heart’s magnetic field is about 5,000 times stronger than the magnetic field of the brain.

Our own physics textbooks say that if you want to change the atoms of physical matter, you have to change either the electrical field or the magnetic field—the heart does both. This is why feeling is in some ways far more effective than thinking.

In our society, we’ve been conditioned to believe that feelings and emotions are ineffective. Men have largely been told not to have them, and women have been told that if you’re going to have them, go have them somewhere else, where they won’t bother anyone. 

But outside our society, it’s quite different. In the monasteries in Tibet, for example, they say that feeling is the most powerful force in the universe. At one monastery, Braden asked the abbot, “In your tradition, what is the force that connects everything in the universe?” The abbot answered with a single word: compassion. Braden thought it was a mistranslation, so he asked the translator to pose the question to the abbot again. The abbot came back with the same word: compassion.

With that, Braden asked whether compassion is a force of nature that connects everything in the universe—or is it an experience that we have in our hearts?” After the translator had made sure that the abbot understood exactly what was being asked, the abbot answered again with one word: “Yes.”
