More About the Author

A former Senior Computer Systems Designer for Martin Marietta Aerospace, Computer geologist for Phillips Petroleum, and the Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems, Braden is considered a pioneer in bridging the wisdom of our past with the science, healing and peace of our future.

For more than 20 years Gregg has searched high mountain villages, remote monasteries, ancient temples, and forgotten texts to uncover their timeless secrets. His search led to the 2004 release of his paradigm-shattering book, The God Code, revealing words of the ancient message coded into the DNA of all life.

Between 1998 and 2005 Gregg's journeys into the monasteries of central Tibet revealed a forgotten form of prayer that was lost during the biblical edits of the early Christian Church. In his newest book, Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer, he documents this mode of prayer that has no words or outward expression, yet gives us direct access to the quantum force that connects all things.

From his groundbreaking book, Awakening to Zero Point, to the intimacy of Walking Between the Worlds and the controversy of The Isaiah Effect, Gregg's work awakens the best in each of us, inspiring our deepest passions with the tools to build a better world.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Power of Beauty 30 April 2007
I read Gregg Braden's Divine Matrix first which was published after this book, and they contain similar material. However, you will gain from reading both.

It is a delightfully packaged little book, small, red and with a padded cover. You are drawn to it before you read one word of the stunning content.

The first page tells you everything about it:

"This book is written for those in search of comfort in the presence of fear and uncertainty in our world. In those moments when life's hurts tear into the hidden places of your soul, I invite you to enter the refuge of beauty, blessing, our lost mode of prayer, and the deep wisdom that each rests upon..."

Yes, other books will claim this too, because having read dozens of books about spirituality, it is no surprise the best are all singing the same song. What makes this book different is that it is free from jargon, and puts the complex message over powerfully as five core `secrets.'

I have long used the expression `you're a beauty' [probably gleaned from Robert Lindsay's Fagin in Oliver Twist], as a term of endearment, without ever really paying attention to its deeper meaning. Braden breathes life into the word and explains how beauty, whilst subjective holds us all in its thrall.

So, when you pray feel the answer, imagine what you want has happened, learn from hurt, use the power of blessing in your life, let beauty `be the transformer' and create your own prayers.

Simple? Yes. Powerful? Incredibly. How? Get the book.

I, too, read this book after "The Divine Matrix". There is a certain amount of "overlap" between the two books, but each is complete in itself.

"Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer" really is an excellent book, and can be read by anyone with an open mind (& heart)... irrespective of religious or cultural background.

Unfortunately, much has been lost (or hidden from us) over the years, and we are only just re-discovering what was "known" thousands of years ago.

Gregg Braden does an excellent job of bringing us back to "basics" in this wonderful little book... highlighting the role of human emotions in the effectiveness of prayer... and the need to be in the right state of mind (ie preparation)... and to "feel" (amongst other things) that the prayer has already been answered.

All I can say is: read the book, and try it for yourself; it could certainly change your life for the better (as well as countless others around you).

5.0 out of 5 stars Bless this author and blessings to you too. 1 July 2009
By H. Hart
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I like this book. As another reviewer says, it even feels good to hold it. The contents of the book are even better. I was intrigued by his main tenets, about blessing and beauty, I really think he is on to something. I loved the way he interwove personal accounts and experiential and academically rigourous research. He describes how we can heal and be healed, he affirms our own experiences and offers us a useful context to place them in. He traces these experiences through ancient mystical lit. I have a post-grad degree in Mysticism & Rel. Exp. but I was struck that we never focused on prayer as Gregg has done in this book. It is a valuable invitation to explore this area and certainly left me better informed, more aware, yet thirsting for more awareness of the intensly private, yet socially imperative power of the human prayer state. I was pleased he describes how the Mysticisim was edited from the Bible. By the end I would have prefered his book to be twice the length as it was finished, oh too soon. In all, I was glad to have made Gregg Braden's aquaintance, and will search out his other titles.

4.0 out of 5 stars everything you need 12 Feb 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a comprehensive manual on the application of concentrated thoughts and emotion and how to apply these to a whole host of situations.
Gregg Braden demonstrates a complete and seemless understanding of the progression of all our emotions right from our very first thought all the way through to the release our intentions in the prayer form.

3.0 out of 5 stars a little beauty 9 Aug 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A lovely little book to feel and hold, it has a padded cover which makes it feel special from the start. For those who are familiar with Bradens work the message follows his other books as he continues his search for spiritual development, teaching us not to pray with words but with feelings (a spiritual take on the law of attraction). The message as ever comes straight from Bradens heart and his desire to give us the tools to create a better world for ourselves and others. However, like his other works he is very repetetive, reiterating the same points continuously which can get quite frustrating.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sweet little book 5 Jan 2010
Not his best book (that is the Divine Matrix) but a beautiful little companion on your life's journey. A subtle introduction to how you feelings create your reality and how you actually go about 'praying' for what you need. The handy size and beautiful photos means you'll probably refer to it many times. It would make a good gift too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eye opener to people in all traditions 15 Dec 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In Islam, we have the strong advice of absolutely believing that what you are praying for is imminent 'Pray and believe that your need as at your doorstep' as one narration says, however, people fail to shake the uncertainty within them. In this book, Gregg Braden tells people that this is indeed the prayer. But that is not all: so that people realy activate this utter belief in the divine to whom they are praying for anything, their weaknesses should be addressed, and here comes the role of how to utilise the hurt, then the blessing, then the beauty in everything. The only thing that I didn't like is the glossy paper it is printed on - the colours, the size, artistic touch are beautiful, but the glare from the glossy paper was a little nuisance, not hindering reading though and should not be any reason not to have this book.

The key, he said, is that when we ask for something to happen, we give power to what we do not have. Prayers for healing empower the sickness. Prayers for rain empower the drought. "Continuing to ask for these things only gives more power to the things that we would like to change," he said. &quote;

Rather than attempting to make the world bend to our wishes, feeling-based prayer changes us. We bend, and the world spontaneously reflects our improvements. &quote;

So what we choose to create, we must first feel as a reality. If we can feel it in our hearts-not just think it, but also really feel it-then it's possible in our lives! &quote;
