In this episode, Marina Perry talks about survival codes, which refer to our deep subconscious programming that controls our entire reality. Marina provides an in-depth overview of survival codes, describing to listeners where they come from, what they are made of, and what can be done about them. 


Survival codes are made up of three components:

  1. Survival equations, which establish the rules we set for ourselves
  2. Identity codes, which are the labels we give to ourselves
  3. Protective pawprint, which determines what is important to achieve and what to avoid


These three components fuse together to create our survival codes, telling us what to do and how to act in certain ways in order to survive. They become created during one’s formative years during times of stress or danger and from that point became a form of internalized programming designed to keep us alive. Oftentimes, we learn these codes through familial and societal systems, but they also come from the self, created through the truths we’ve found alignment with. The problem, however, is that this truth and these codes are often created by toddlers, and people struggle to update them as they grow and their lives change. 


While Marina stresses that our survival codes are created from self-love, they can become a form of ineffective love or self-sabotage when they prevent us from expanding into new aspects of ourselves. If we want to come into sovereignty and embrace wholeness, we must know what our survival codes are, respect them, but then from a place of maturity, reprogram them to include more of that which is now true and what we want.


In order to begin changing our survival codes, Marina advises becoming attune to our codes that need retouching. She recommends, through self-reflection, looking for cycles of similarity that are frustrating and noting those patterns in our lives that continue to repeat. She also recommends looking for the persistent complaint present in our lives, explaining how this can be the signal for a need to change a survival code. 


As always, Marina encourages listeners to reach out to her with any questions, and if you’re interested in learning more about survival codes or a different topic, feel free to DM her, and your suggestions may work their way into the content of a future podcast.
