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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.”
