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 a patient for about 9 years. My sons, since birth and they 7 and 4 now. I can't say enough about the Ancaster Family Chiropractic team. They are very friendly and accommodating and truly make you feel like part of their Chiropractic family. Our visits have helped keep our immune systems strong and help our bodies heal and stay healthy. Dr. Neil and his team are fantastic with my boys. They fondly call him Dr. Clickers. He is a big part of our health maintenance and we're grateful to have found him.

  • Dr Brown is efficient, empathetic and excellent at what he does, which is helping your body heal itself! The investment that he, and his supportive team of Deb and Sue, make towards your long term care plan is by far the most thorough and well thought out that I have ever experienced. I highly recommend their services for the whole family.

  • I promised a haiku to show my appreciation, so here it is!

    Dr. Neil is great
    I have never felt better
    Go see him today

    In all honesty, Dr. Neil has been a huge help getting rid of my headaches and chronic sickness - issues that no medication in the world could help. He’s a class act and treats his clients like a true professional. If you’re dealing with any sort of health issues, I would recommend booking an appointment with him.

    Thank you Dr. Neil and your team (Deb & Sue are fantastic!) for your commitment to my health and your welcoming environment. I look forward to my appointments!

  • I have been a patient with Dr Neil for about 2 years now and have definitely noticed an overall improvement in my well being and good health feeling since starting with the adjustments. I can also attribute a successful and remarkable quick recovery from 2 Total Knee Replacement surgeries to having good chiropractic care supporting good health healing! Dr. Neil is not only a caring friendly professional, he is also highly experienced and I wish to recommend him to anyone that needs a boost to daily health.

  • I have been a proud client of Dr. Neil and the support team since 2016 and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I tried other chiropracters previously and the experience at Ancaster Family Chiropractic is far superior than any other. The atmosphere is positive, friendly and professional. The set up is great and the organization/structure just makes sense. I love having a key fob...makes me feel important! They actually teach about chiropractic care for a greater understanding of same. The name is fitting as you feel like part of the family. Thanks for everything you do.
