Wisdom Codes by Gregg Braden Book Review

Hello and HAPPY DAY!
How does slowing down sound to you today?
Would you like to reduce the noise for just
a bit?
Are you ready to make a choice and decide
to listen?
My name is Igor, SF Walker.
I am here to remind people to slow down.
To reduce the noise.
To walk their lives into a natural flow.
Welcome back to the Book of the Week series.
Every week as I read another amazing title,
I share it with the world.
Today we look at: The Wisdom Codes: Ancient
Words to Rewire Our Brains and Heal Our Hearts
by Gregg Braden
In this video I will talk about the importance
of words throughout the ages and cultures
all around the world.
Discovering their power and how their conscious
use affects our brain and bio-chemistry inside
of us.
We’ll discover what these wisdom codes and
power codes are and how they can help us in
dealing with things that challenge us most
in life: protection, fear, loss, strength
and love.
There are 15 codes in total so stick around
until the end and learn about a free test
and my master of life awareness program as
The implications of the word-life relationship
are profound.

appears that the language we use the words
we choose to describe ourselves and share
our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and beliefs
actually forms the framework for the unity
or separation that we experience when we think
and solve the problems of everyday life.
All we may have is ourselves.
And ultimately, that’s all we need.
Once I understood this simple truth, it made
perfect sense that we already have the power
to rewire our brains on demand, and in doing
so, to choose to self-regulate the way we
respond to life’s extremes.
When we speak the words, either out loud or
silently to ourselves, something shifts within
And that “something” is where the power
of words, chemistry, and neurons converge
in a beautiful way.
We associate the words of the codes with the
meaning we give to the words.
This association directs our brain cells (neurons)
to connect in a precise way that harmonizes
our biology with the energy of our emotions.
Chemically, we are no longer the same person
we were only moments or hours before.
And it’s that difference that opens the
door to new ways of thinking, feeling, and
acting when it comes to our losses, fears,
and betrayals.
The words of our everyday language directly
influence the way our brain “wires” itself
when it comes to how we think, and even what
we are capable of thinking about.
In the recent book Words Can Change Your Brain,
physician Andrew Newberg, M.D., and co-author
Mark Waldman echo Whorf’s ideas and tell
us precisely what the word-brain connection
They describe this relationship clearly, stating:
“A single word has the power to influence
the expression of genes that regulate physical
and emotional stress.”
Our words influence the chemistry in our bodies,
the neurons in our brains, and the way our
neurons connect and “fire” to determine:
How we think of ourselves and solve our problems,
what we are even capable of thinking about.
While we commonly think of anger, jealousy,
and criticism as separate issues to be dealt
with one by one, each ultimately points to
the same core issue: unresolved fear.
By healing (resolving) our underlying fear,
we dismantle the need for safety and the reasons
why varied expressions of the same fear may
be showing up in our lives.
Core issues that challenge us most in life:
protection, fear, loss, strength, and love.
The wisdom code, power code, or parable itself:
a direct quote from a text, scripture, or
revered teaching from our past.
The use of the wisdom code: the intended experience
that the code is designed to address.
The source of the wisdom code with a reference
for where you can go to read it directly,
or to discover a greater context for yourself.
WISDOM CODE 1: He that dwelleth in the secret
place of the Most High shall abide under the
shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and
my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

This code was created by the prophet Moses
as he climbed Mount Sinai to shield him from
unknown forces during his ascent.

SOURCE: This portion of the Lord’s Prayer
is translated from the original Syriac dialect
of an ancient Aramaic gospel.

the longer original prayer that appears in
Matthew, chapter 6, verses 9–13, and in
a briefer version in Luke, chapter 11, verses
The same general structure composed of three
simple functions.
These are the parts of this universal template:
A declaration statement.
A function statement.
A completion (or resolution) statement.
From the software that sends humans into space
and brings them safely home again to the programs
that distribute electricity across the power
grids of the world, the same universal structure
WISDOM CODE 4: Brahma, the manifestation of
spiritual energy, destroyer of sufferings,
embodiment of happiness, bright like sun,
destroyer of sins, divine, intellect who may

Mantra, addresses personal protection as well
as the need to clear personal obstacles.
SOURCE: The Rig Veda, mandala (book) 3, hymn
62, verse 10
WISDOM CODE 5: The soul is not born, nor does
it die.
It did not spring from something, and nothing
sprang from it.
It is unborn, eternal, immortal, and ageless.
It is not destroyed when the body is destroyed.
USE: This code addresses the uncertainty and
universal fear that we cease to exist after
SOURCE: The Kathopanishad, sometimes known
as the Katha Upanishad, one of the primary
texts of the ancient Hindu Vedas, chapter
1, section 2, verses 18–2050
WISDOM CODE 6: There is no seed of a god which

SOURCE: Bhagavad Gita, chapter 2, verse 20
WISDOM CODE 8: One day your body will return

nonexistence and our relationship to a greater
SOURCE TEXT: The Essene Gospel of Peace
In our culture, we’re expected to just “go
with the flow” and embrace the transformation.
The truth is, however, that we need time to
We need time to acclimate to the void that
the loss of familiar things leaves in our
lives and in our hearts.
We have two powerful paths.
On one path, we deny our grief.
In our denial, we attempt to live each day
as if we are the same person, living in the
same world as we did before we lost our loved
On the second path, we accept our grief.
And in our acceptance, we open the door to
the healing that grief brings to our doorstep.
It’s in our willingness to accept our loss
that we heal.
WISDOM CODE 9: The impermanence of this floating
world I feel over and over.
It is hardest to be the one left behind.
USE: This code reminds us that even in the
knowledge that all things are temporary, enduring
the loss of a loved one is still one of hardest
things we will face.
SOURCE TEXT: Otagaki Rengetsu, renowned Buddhist
WISDOM CODE 10: You only lose what you cling
USE: This code reminds us that our suffering
in times of loss is the result of our attachment
to what is impermanent.
SOURCE: A widely used, colloquial summary
of the Buddhist principle of nonattachment
Our experience of loss comes from our perceptions
of life, surroundings, and relationships within
the context of that change.
When we feel that we’ve lost someone or
something, it’s less about their disappearance
in the world and more about our perception
of their disappearance.
WISDOM CODE 11: Lead me from the unreal to
the real.
Lead me from the darkness to the light.
Lead me from death to immortality.
Let there be peace, peace, peace.
USE: This code is in the form of a chant or
a mantra, designed to help us in times of
loss and mourning.
SOURCE: Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
Regardless of our life challenges, we always
have the power to choose how we respond to
what life brings to our doorstep.
And it’s the power of our choices that are
the source of our inner strength.
Without this power, it’s easy to feel stuck,
helpless, and trapped in our circumstances.
Clearly, our power of choice is a significant
characteristic of our humanness.
It’s also the key to our highest levels
of mastery.
Free will as our capacity to select from the
myriad possibilities that exist in a given
situation, and to then implement what we’ve
WISDOM CODE 12: The beauty that you live with,
the beauty that you live by, the beauty upon
which you base your life.
USE: This key reminds us that beauty exists
in all things.
Our job is to find the beauty in the experiences
of life.
SOURCE: An informal version of an ancient
Navajo prayer
WISDOM CODE 13: Om Namah Shivaya.
USE: This code is a traditional Hindu mantra
that awakens our self-confidence to find strength
and purpose in life.
SOURCE: The Yajurveda, Vedic text
WISDOM CODE 14: The Lord is my shepherd, I
lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he
leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes
my soul.
He guides me along the right paths for his
name’s sake.
USE: The words of this powerful psalm have
endured through the centuries as a source
of strength and comfort in times of loss,
grief, and need.
SOURCE: The Bible, New International Version,
Psalm 23, abbreviated version
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely
to seek and find all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.
Forgiveness doesn’t excuse what another
person has done; it doesn’t mean that you
need to tell another person that he or she
is forgiven; it doesn’t mean that you should
forget what has happened or should not continue
to have strong feelings about a violation
of trust or a physical or emotional boundary.
And perhaps most importantly, forgiveness
isn’t for the person that you are forgiving.
It’s for you.
Forgiveness is an act of love that you perform
for yourself.
WISDOM CODE 15: If you bring forth what is
within you, what you bring forth will save
If you do not bring forth what is within you,
what you do not bring forth will destroy you.
USE: A reminder that we harbor a force within
us whose expression has the power to heal
us, yet whose repression has the power to
destroy us.
SOURCE: The Gospel of Thomas, discovered in
its complete form as part of Egypt’s Nag
Hammadi Library in 1945
POWER CODE 1: I will.
USE: This ancient code affirms to our body
and declares to the universe that we are empowered
to choose an outcome.
SOURCE: The Bible, King James Version, book
of Matthew, chapter 8, verses 2–3
USE: This ancient code claims the truth of
the moment.
SOURCE: The Bible, book of Exodus, chapter
3, verse 14
