The Matrix

Do you remember the movie The Matrix? I watched it last week and realized that it was released 21 years ago(!). If you haven’t seen it, it’s the story of a future world where human created machines with artificial intelligence have taken over the world. The humans tried to block the solar power needed by the machines in an attempt to stop them. The machines then created a simulated reality to pacify the humans in order for them to harvest bioelectric power from the humans. Long story short, the humans are operating in a programmed environment and all but a few have no idea it’s even happening. Neo, the film’s hero, is given the opportunity to take the blue pill and return to his former life or take the red pill to be shown the complexity of the matrix.

The Blue Pill or Red Pill – You HAVE to Decide

Morpheus : “This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”

As you know, I’m not a fan of outside-in pills but I love this scene in the movie. Would you rather live in “blissful ignorance” or acknowledge the existence of your subconscious to change your world from the inside-out? All of us have been subconsciously programmed, with much of it occurring before the age of 7 years old.

How to Re-program Your Subconscious

1. Your brain and nervous system are continually leading you in the direction of the image you think about both consciously and subconsciously. This is why it’s vital to focus on what you want in life, not on what you don’t want. Write your goals down in a journal. Visualize your goals them coming to life. Speak your goals as if they have already happened.

2. Your mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real and what is imagined. Visualization activates the creative powers of your subconscious mind and creates new neural pathways. Creative visualization focuses your brain to picture your goals coming to life instead of worrying about the worst.

3. The final way to reprogram your subconscious mind is through repetition. Once a majority of identity is formed around seven or eight years old, you begin to establish habits. Your habits are formed by repeating something over and over and over again. Think about learning to ride a bike or drive a car.

Here’s the clip where Neo is offered the choice between the blue pill and the red pill.

  • I have been suffering with neck and back pain and lack of mobility since my early teens and I am now 27, but I have progressively had a harder time coping with it since I started working in Healthcare in 2019. It had gotten to the point where all I could think about was finding a different job throughout my shift because I wasn't sure how much longer I could handle it. I decided to give Chiropractic Medicine a try and I am so thankful I did! I have been going to Ancaster Family Chiropractic since July 2021 and I have experienced a significant improvement with reduced severity and frequency of pain, better range of motion in my neck and back, and I rarely have to take OTC pain medication which is something I was relying on daily beforehand. I am not even halfway through my treatment plan and I can't wait to continue experiencing improvement in my quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Neil, Sue and Deb!

  • Dr. Neil and the staff Deb and Sue were very helpful with dealing with my issues. I went in with a lower back pain and has been healing pretty well. I have noticed the adjustments and home exercise not only helped with the pain but also helped with my digestion issues such as bloating. They were very accommodating whenever I needed a change in visits.Overall a great place to get yourself healed.

  • Their philosophy of health and well being is encouraging, optimistic and realistic. I appreciate the idea of leading a healthy lifestyle and preventing illness rather than simply treating the symptoms of ailments. Also, there are times unexpected benefits to chiropractic care. I wholeheartedly recommend Ancaster Family Chiropractic.
