Review

Gregg Braden is a rare blend of scientist, visionary and scholar with the ability to speak to our minds, while touching the wisdom of our hearts. -- Deepak Chopra

About the Author

New York Times best selling author Gregg Braden is internationally renowned as a pioneer in bridging science and spirituality. Following a successful career as a Computer Geologist for Phillips Petroleum during the 1970s energy crisis, he worked as a Senior Computer Systems Designer with Martin Marietta during the last years of the Cold War. In 1991 he became The First Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems, where he led the development of the global support team assuring the reliability of the internet in its early days.

For more than 22 years, Gregg has searched high mountain villages, remote monasteries, and forgotten texts to uncover their timeless secrets. To date, his work has led to such paradigm-shattering books as The Isaiah Effect, The God Code, The Divine Matrix, and his most recent, Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age.

Gregg’s work has been published in 27 languages and 30 countries and shows us beyond any reasonable doubt that the key to our future lies in the wisdom of our past.

He makes it very easy to understand without getting too technical.
Paradox
Mr. Braden has made the intricate and complex science of quantum physics "code" readable for everyone.

In The Spontaneous Healing of Belief Gregg Braden tackles the great questions of life: who are we, and what are we capable of creating? He draws the analogy of an all-encompassing computer program to explain how the universe works and what our part in its working may be. And he says that, like a computer programmer, people must understand the code that causes the computer to produce the results they choose. Without the correct codes, results are likely to be something other than the individual wants.

For example, discussing fractals, Braden offers the code: "If the universe is made of repeating patterns, then to understand something on a small scale provides a powerful window into similar forms on a grand scale." Following that, he offers "belief is the `program' that creates patterns in reality." Thus, he leads the readers into the central thesis of this book: To heal your life and recreate your life, heal your beliefs.

It is his premise that humans are capable of creating miracles. We become less than capable only when we accept the limits that we ourselves have created. To identify and restructure those beliefs that underlie our self-imposed limits, he includes a series of exercises that make change of belief almost inevitable.

What I enjoyed most about this book is Braden's synthesis of the findings of scientific studies and the teachings of philosophers and medicine workers throughout history. He masterfully creates coherent linkages between the teachings of the masters, such as Jesus, the Buddha, and Rumi, and what scientists are telling us about the structure and function of the universe.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The first half of this book offers little to distinguish itself from other metaphysical literature on mind-body healing or the power of positive thinking and healthy beliefs. It covers David Bohm's theory that the universe is a holographic computer (although Bohm is only mentioned in one brief paragraph at the very end of the book--p.190), the relationship between the conscious and subconscious minds, and the maleability of reality as described by quantum mechanics. These summaries are tedious and offer few insights that can't be found in dozens of other books.

THE SPONTANEOUS HEALING OF BELIEF does contain a solid chapter on how our minds are unconsciously programmed at an early age and how such negative programming produces the frustration, fear, anger, depression, and pain that can sabatoge our beliefs and the ability to lead healthy lives. Braden's examples are relevant and specific, and this is the strongest part of the book.

The middle of the book is muddled, however, and veers radically off course. According to the author, the prerequisite for healing our beliefs is that light and darkness, good and evil must not be judged but rather accepted as equal and necessary forces by the subconscious mind (pp. 116-124). A battle is allegedly raging within our bodily cells because we were taught as young children that evil and darkness are bad. This conclusion, Braden tells us, was the result of recurring dreams through which he learned to embrace darkness and light as equals. (Okay, Luke, the dark side isn't so bad after all.) Following the description of these dreams, we learn in a poorly explained section that the author, as a result of his dream revelations, lost all friendships, both positive and negative, as he experienced a rather zen-like "nothingness.

Format: Hardcover
Gregg Braden certainly has a way with words to convey concepts and discoveries that can only help humanity.

In this important work, Braden gets to the "heart center" of manifestation, transforming the limits that have bound most of humanity for eons, and delivers key elements in practical terms to not only create what you truly want in life, but also to stop getting in your own way with previous conditioned limitations.

If your life is not the way you want it to be, if there are areas of society that you would like to see transform, Braden's new book is like a refreshing and welcome breeze on a hot summer day to finally and simply help you transform it all from the inside out. The transformation is not only for you and me, it can very well be for life on earth for all.

This is an eloquently written book that conveys important elements for positive transformation straight from the heart.

Two GEMS are "worth the price of admission" ...

(1) Braden's definition of BELIEF, and

(2) His highlighting of the importance of whether you view life as a fundamental UNITY or as basically a POLAR reality.

I enjoyed the sense of being guided by a scientist who has switched his main focus to the study of the "inner realms".

The summary of the key points in the back of the book is very "user-friendly" and makes for easy review.

Let's start with the title. It sounds like another book that was already published. In fact 'Spontaneous Healing : How to Discover and Embrace Your Body's Natural Ability to Maintain and Heal Itself' was written by Andrew Weil and released in April 2000. It seems this topic has been addressed already. So don't expect real breakthroughs in this retread.

The thesis here starts out by examining the ideas of those (Seth Lloyd, John Wheeler, John Barrow) who compared the workings of the universe to a computer program or simulation (ala Matrix). The book says that the universe is a running computer program composed of bits (atoms) and that this concept of bits (polarity) has influenced, or corrupted, our entire mental programming. If we can realize that not everything is good or bad, and if we can swap our old beliefs for new ones (cosmic belief code), then everything will be better.

Since the authors background is as a computer programmer, not a scientist, these 'facts', from others, end up becoming a foundation upon which to build a less certain train of thought. Through the book you end up with 31 'Codes of belief' which are an attempt to explain how the universe works. It's all extremely tenuous and does not appear to be much more than whimsy.

This does sound like a technically enlightened self-help book for the awakening minds of the 21st century right? Here is what I don't like and why and the reasons why these types of writings actually prevent people from progressing on the spiritual path.

First, this book does not saying anything new. Read your favorite spiritual book by any ancient author. Pick the words of Jesus for instance and you have everything the author is saying here with more clarity and in a less complicated way.
