A Review of the book, “The Spontaneous Healing of Belief” by Greg Braden

These are the laws Braden gives in his book. He says on page 30, “Every day we offer the literal input of our belief-commands to the consciousness of the universe, which translates our personal and collective instructions into the reality of our health, the quality of our relationships, and the peace of the world.”

I say that every thought reflects our beliefs, which amounts to a constant stream of intention, like prayers, which are answered according to the way they are given. If you believed that every thought was a prayer, then you might be willing to change your thoughts to be more in line with what you do want—not so much with what you don’t want. Beliefs are just thoughts we think a lot.

Beliefs are a powerful language, expressing our certainties. They come from our personal experience and express how we create our everyday reality. The anatomy of a belief is that it, first must be expressed through the medium of our bodies and it, second, must have the power to do something in our physical world. Beliefs lead to the way we think. Thoughts create what we feel. And, feelings motivate us to behave in certain ways, which reinforce our beliefs. So, it is important that you know what you believe. You can get a clear picture of that if you watch how you behave (words you speak, tone of voice, facial expression, body posture-gestures-movements). If I want to know what I truly believe, I must be aware of what I do, moment by moment.

I like the way these laws or codes from Braden’s book connect to our new computer age world. I hope you will get interested in reading his book. I would like to discuss these ideas with you, dear reader! Until you read the book, here is a summary of the codes.

Here they are:

Belief Code I

The focus of our attention, experiments show, can change reality itself and suggest that we live in an interactive universe.

II. We live our lives based on what we believe about our world, ourselves, our capabilities, and our limits.

III. Science is a language—one of many that describe us, the universe, our bodies, and how things work.

IV. If the particles that we are made of can be in instantaneous communication with one another, be in 2 places at once, and even change the past through choices made in the present, then we can as well.

V. Our beliefs have the power to change the flow of events in the universe—literally to interrupt and redirect time, matter, and space, and the events that occur within them.

VI. Just as we can run a simulated program that looks and feels real, studies suggest that the universe itself may be the output of a huge and ancient simulation—a computer program—that began long ago. If so, then to know the program’s code if to know the rules of reality itself.

VII. When we think of the universe as a program, atoms represent “bits” of information that work just the way familiar computer bits do. They are either “on” as physical matter or “off”, as invisible wave.

What is the universe computing? Itself.

VIII. Nature uses a few simple, self-similar, and repeating patterns—fractiles—to build atoms into familiar patterns of everything from elements and molecules to rocks, trees, and us.

XI. 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.





X. Belief is the “program” that creates patterns in reality.

XI. What we believe to be true in life, may be more powerful than what others accept as true.

XII. We must accept the power of belief to tap it in our lives.

XIII. Belief is defined as the certainty that comes from what we think is true, coupled with what we feel is true in our hearts.

XIV. Belief is expressed in the heart, where our experiences are translated into the electrical and magnetic waves that interact with the physical world.

XV. Beliefs, and the feelings that we have about them, are the language that “speaks” to the quantum stuff that makes our reality.

XVI. The subconscious mind is larger and faster than the conscious mind, and can account for as much as 90% of our activity each day. E.g. breathing, digestion

XVII. Many of our most deeply held beliefs are subconscious and begin when our brain state allows us to absorb the ideas of others (before the age of 7).

XVIII. In our greatest challenges of life, we often find that our deeply hidden beliefs are exposed and available for healing.

XIX. Our beliefs about unresolved hurt can create physical effects with the power to damage or even kill us.

XX. When our soul hurts, our pain is transmitted into the body as the spiritual quality of the life that we feed into each child.

XXI. The same principles that allow us to hurt ourselves into death also work in reverse, allowing us to heal ourselves into life.

XXII. Our belief in one force for everything that happens in the world, or our belief in two opposite and opposing forces (good vs. evil) plays out in our experience of life, health, relationships, and abundance.

XXIII. To heal the ancient battle between darkness and light, we may find that it is less about defeating one or the other, and more about choosing our relationship to both.

XXIV. A miracle that is possible for anyone is possible for everyone.

XXV. In a participatory reality, we are creating our experience as well as experiencing what we have created.

XXVI. In 1998, scientists discovered that photons are experienced just by being watched and discovered. They further discovered, that the more intense the watching, the greater the watchers influence on how the particles behaved.

XXVII. The prime rule of reality is that we must become, in our lives, what we choose to experience in the world.

XXVIII. We tend to experience in life what we identify with in our beliefs.

XXIX. For different reasons that reflect the variations in the way we learn, both logic and miracles give us the way into the deepest recesses of our beliefs.

XXX. To change our beliefs through the logic of our minds, we must convince ourselves of a new possibility through inarguable facts that lead to an inescapable conclusion.

XXXI. The power of a miracle is that we don’t have to understand why it works. We must, however, be willing to accept what it brings to our lives. The spontaneous healing of belief: love fearlessly and share unselfishly. Miracles can happen. We are the seeds of miracles.

Our job is to look into the world for reasons for new beliefs. Our work is to discover our world and then, with all our heart, give ourselves to it.

Love with all our heart, soul, and mind. Love fearlessly. Share unselfishly. Transformation happens through the power of our beliefs.
