Baltimore ME Seminar Part 1

Matrix Energetics 2 Hour Intro Halloween 2008, Friday night Intro to Matrix Energetics...Act 1: music volume increases as large man in a Batman costume approaches the stage. His minions dresses in other various pop-culture costumes stream in to hold key locations in the ballroom.,,Daughter Justice as Catwoman, Son Nate as The Joker, Jamie as Neo, Tanika as a pirate, and the other Master Teachers and Interns in an assortment of other great costumes. The clapping and music feed Richard as the tone builds to the crescendo. It brings the audience to , not a level of excitement, but a shared level of awareness. Richard speaks...

Sitting in the front row with Richard towering over you in a rubber suit is kind of intimidating. I can see how the superhero garb is a staple for the guy who may be a mild mannered CPA by day. Without the ability to see the face you can't get the nuances behind the words. Someone could be joking with you and though your ears hear the phrase "did you hear the one about...?", part of your visual perception is telling you this guy is going to pull something out of that utility belt and...where DOES he get all those wonderful toys???!!!! And Dr. Richard Bartlett then starts using all those wonderful toys. After all it is all about playing and people like to play with toys. Instead of a fire truck or an MP3 player he whips out an archetype or a frequency and whips it at the audience like a bat-arang.

It is difficult to describe how the Seminar experience is. There is a lot going on and the interactions with the other attendees makes each interaction unique. I could say Dr. Bartlett makes a constant stream of puns and interlaces them with very serious physics and Spiritual information. He makes a number of people sway, distort, laugh, and fall down like a person playing twister with an invisible partner. The comparison to Benny Hinn and the "slaying people in the Spirit" is exactly what it looks like much of the time. He has stated in a couple of interviews that this appearance is not purely accidental. Richard has said that he thinks that the healing or transformation comes from God or the Holy Spirit...or something like that. And he always says he doesn't really know what is happening when people fall, or sway or go into trance, or just gasp and say something like "Oh my,Holy Shit!, WOW, or just look puzzled and say HUH?". He does try to explain what he thinks or believes is going on right after stating that he really doesn't know what is going on. What more could you ask for.

It is at the least funny and FUN. Thinking how fun it is I thought of calling it FUN ( F***ked Up N'ergetics) which is the experience somewhat in a nutshell. This stuff is messed up! If one was watching detached from the experience it would be easy to sum it up this way. So...there were a couple hundred people touching each other and falling down and randomly laughing or crying and a snapshot at any given time might look like the morning after a frat party with bodies littering the carpet. Albeit there is, on average, a much older crowd assembled and no drugs or alcohol involved. You can hold this one against me but ME can mess you a good way , that is. That is looking at it from the outside, as a detached fly on the wall.

It is hard to be detached from it however. When you are in that room with all these other people trying to do this "thing", trying to become themselves if that doesn't seem too cryptic. What I, and what I believe almost everyone else there, was trying to do is to get a handle on Matrix Energetics. I can't speak for the Matrix groupies or the repeat offenders at the seminar. For most of those I came in contact with it was about making this real for themselves the way Richard seems to have made it real for him. We want to be able to do what he does, what we see him doing before our eyes. We wanted to touch another person and have a positive profound effect on them - simply put. He says anyone can learn it, that could be true - I don't know. The part about fixing your toaster or your Ipod, or about zapping $10,000 into your bank account is appealing and no weirder than 2-pointing a sprained ankle. What I saw most of was compassion and a desire to help others... and tap into an awareness where miracles happen.

There was a guy there on Friday night who raised his hand and stood up about half way through the intro and said something like " This is all staged, isn't it? It looks staged". Well you can guess what happened next. He was called up on stage with a guy in a Batman costume who touched him and he fell over backwards and lay motionless on the floor for the next 10 minutes. When he got up he was thrilled. I sat beside him the next day and talked. He was Polish and had been in the US for 27 years. He had just recently heard from a friend that he should go to this seminar and hadn't even read the book. He was psyched! He didn't know what happened to him when Richard touched him but it was powerful. He was sure to that it was not just a stage act. It is real.

Everyone there, for the most part, wanted that experience of Richard working his magic on them. Many were called to come up and be "played with". As person after person went up and seemed to have amazing things happen Dr. Bartlett said over and over....It is not him doing it and you all can do this. The difference of us doing it is that we have to find a way to do it our own way. If you listened to Reggi or Richard's daughter Justice or any of the other Master Practitioners there, the underlying narrative was that they each have their own style. So we are given the basic skills but it is up to us to make it our own. We are handed the tools and lumber to build a house but the blueprint and the details are up to us. And anything goes. Make it up as you go along. And have FUN!

What Shows UP

As I sit down to write specific posts I start to form a kind of mental outline of what I want to say. What happens though is what shows up. This time I wanted to write about my struggles this past week with Matrix Energetics. Family setbacks, pitfalls, and tragedies shot me back to an old way of thinking...and feeling. I felt like I couldn't 2 point my way out of a paper bag. When I sat down a concept came in about Spiritual movements in my country in the past few decades. It is what showed up.

How many movements or subcultures have grown out of the blanket term of New Age or Pagan. Most of these claim to be THE truth or THE Divine Wisdom....or my favorite THE reconnection with an ancient teaching. What most fellow Americans sense about those claiming this new-old wisdom can be summed up in one word: superiority. In the same way financial success is flaunted in a passive aggressive manner, the buzzwords and exclusive club passwords are thrown around like a corporate executive showing off his new shiny Lexus. It is the one-upsmanship of how many workshops attended, Master Levels achieved, or magical rituals performed, as if they were merit badges.

I am not saying that all those who seek wisdom are drawn into this sport where the winners are measured by the number of items they have sampled from the enormous New age Buffet. And the buffet is large indeed. It feeds on the addictive consumer mentality of our culture. Those drawn into the "fold" are no different than the Fundamentalist Christians so many of them feel superior to. Notice I said Fundamentalist. With the same breath I also say all of these teachings and this wisdom can help guide an individual to Truth or Spirit or God, or whatever word you want to use because they all are attempts to describe a thing which words cannot describe.

When confronted by those who marginalize Christians as unenlightened people who subjugated their "people" for millennia I many times just say some of the kindest, most spiritual people who put their money where their mouth is are Christians. I can also say some of the nastiest people I have interacted with were Pagans. You will find the most spiritual as well as the least interwoven within all religious or spiritual movements - some less than others. I will leave that determination to your own discretion.

There is an unwritten code among most of them that you cannot question any of the sacred beliefs or practices- if you do it is because you are just not as spiritual or "chosen" as they are. In other words they are Fundamentalists. It is OK to question whether Christ is the Son of God but you had dare not question if that person "REALLY" spoke with Isis or a Pleiadian, or whether or not any of the dishes in the buffet were actually "cooked" by a regular human and not a God. I think it is OK to question ALL OF IT! Christianity is just as fair game as the Pleiadian Galactic Counsel.

Having read quite a bit of history I know that much of ancient history is either unknown or unclear. One case in point being the Druids ...almost nothing is historically known about them. Some writing from Roman Scholars and oral traditions past down give a picture but not the workings of Living Religion. In other words much of the new religious movements of the past 25-50 yrs are made up. That's right, inventions of imagination. I do not downplay imagination. Einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge". He used visual mind experiments to come up with his theories. He Imagined! The seeds of imagination could welcome from God, Spirit, Angels, or Ascended Masters, or more simply explained the mad wanderings of our own individual delusional realities. I have no way of verifying them to myself, let alone others. My feeling is it they sometimes comes from something outside of us…at least sometimes.

That is the ground work of what I want to say about Matrix Energetics. Let's take the religious movement Messiah aspect out of the mix. That is one big difference between Richard Bartlett and most of the pack. He always emphatically admits he just made it up. He made up the details, that is. He didn't make up the energy or whatever that is Matrix Energetics however. I compare it to Near Death experiences. Millions of people have had them - this is not in question. Mainstream thought likes to portray them as being all very similar ( light at the end of a tunnel , meeting passed loved ones, etc. ) but the truth is the range of experiences are as unique and many as those experiencing them. The one unifying thing that I find significant is so many Near Death experiencers start off with ..."it is hard to put into words, or, words cannot describe", then they try to describe the thing which words do not come close to relaying.

Richard uses so many of these terms like chakras...then says " I don't believe in chakras but they are a useful mythology" I am paraphrasing, and you could substitute any mystical being, or realm, or phrase for chakra. If an Angel, or a dolphin, or Superman, or a toy fire truck show up when you are in the awareness of ME then go with it.

This is why Matrix Energetics attracts those from all walks of life and all beliefs. It is pragmatic and doesn't require that we put the rational part of our brain on hold like those at Jonestown or in the Heaven's Gate group. Neither does it require that we polarize into opposites like Liberal or Conservative, both of which are blind to the vast landscape of the center. It is like one person standing in LA looks out over the Pacific and says "this is what America looks like", and another is standing in NY looking out towards the Atlantic and says "this is what America looks like". in the mean time the rest of us Americans are standing around looking at each other and the wide country between and say....." hmmm, so this is what America looks like" ( sorry Alaska and Hawaii for leaving you out of that analogy, America looks like you too).

You don't have to chant or meditate, wear a tunic or tie-dye, or forsake your religion. That "superiority" attitude is mostly absent from those involved in ME. Most Me folks I meet are simply there to be of service....willing to embrace the miraculous-what shows up. They come with an open heart and a desire to transform. Shirt and shoes not required.

Protons, Nutrons and...MEons?

Amazing new discovery - there is this new subatomic particle called a MEon......It unifies The 4 Forces of Nature - the electromagnetic, strong force, weak force, and possibly gravity too. It can't be seen or measured but I am fairly sure you sense it when doing/accessing/experiencing/being attacked by Matrix Energetics. If quarks are quirky and gluons ar gooey, protons are proactive, and nuetrons could care less, that leaves room for the MEon to do its magic.

Take a look at this list of subatomic particles and all the "theoretical" particles

Wino......Zino.....Gravitino? Sounds like a The Witches in MacBeth chanting "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble". And perhaps there is much in common there. Picture the physicists at the new CERN , operating the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instrument.

A dark Cave. In the middle, a Caldron boiling. Thunder.

Enter the three Witches.

1 WITCH. Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.
2 WITCH. Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin'd.
3 WITCH. Harpier cries:—'tis time! 'tis time!
1 WITCH. Round about the caldron go;
In the poison'd entrails throw.—
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one;
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot!
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
2 WITCH. Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
3 WITCH. Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf;
Witches' mummy; maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark;
Root of hemlock digg'd i the dark;
Liver of blaspheming Jew;
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse;
Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips;
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,—
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingrediants of our caldron.
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
2 WITCH. Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

So for the word caldron substitute the word Hadron and for any of the other magical ingredients substitute all those subatomic particles. I would do it myself but it it would take too much effort and you get the point anyway. Many of those particles rhyme anyway so it wouldn't be too difficult.

I made up my own subatomic particle then to explain how Matrix Energetics works. If one of those ME particles should happen to get loose at CERN and smack someone the in the head....well that is probably good. Might cure a headache or cause one of the interns there to backpack across Great Britain or something, anything is possible. I then propose that the MEon works like those little scrubbing bubbles in that toilet cleaner advertisement. I am trying to figure out the mathematical equation for that..... like the unifying theory sought by physics, the phrase should only be about an inch long. The mind of God , as Einstein was looking looking for. Maybe ME=mc2....crap, already taken. How about then ME=MoG ( Mind of God)?

Cheryl Andersen's Matrix Energetics Workshop

I was fortunate enough to attend a 6 hour Matrix Energetics given by Cheryl Andersen of New Energetics in a small town near me called Lily Dale. Since it was established in 1879, Lily Dale has been the world’s largest center for spiritual development and the practice of the Spiritualist religion. The 6 hr workshop was actually right outside the assembly grounds at Fellowships of the Spirit . I encourage you to visit their site and explore all the workshops and courses they offer.

Let me first say that that Dr. Richard Bartlett's teaching style is very different than Cheryl's. Richard is a showman and a cross somewhere between Conan O'Brien and Sam Kinison. It is a complex style incorporating fairly in depth layman's discussions of quantum physics, lots of stories giving background, and demonstrations ( again in a showman like manner) to drive home the point that ME is both powerful and easy. There are also lots of practice sessions for the people to try out the techniques. The entertainment quality of the full 2-3 day seminar is deceptive yet decisive in its ability to infuse those attending with this "thing" that is so hard to put into words. Richard's as well as the other teacher's compassion, love, and desire to help people are the steam engine that drives it down the tracks.

Cheryl has the task of trying to fit basically the same information into a typical 4 hr. workshop and still have the participants walk away with some understanding and ability to do a basic 2-point technique and usually have some results, confidence, and trust that they can do this " thing". Maybe they don't walk away knowing they can do it. Most everyone, I think, at the end of the day knows there is more to it than smoke and mirrors and if they didn't have much success they at least saw results being had by most others in the workshop. I don't know how one could ask for much more than this out of a 4 hr. workshop. What I have just said though is does not relay the real impact of the workshop. I am just saying I think there are very few who would not get something out of it even if they had just a casual interest in Matrix Energetics.

Now on to the important stuff! Cheryl is great! The workshop is very relaxed, informative, and interactive. The participants in this workshop were from a wide range of interests and backgrounds. Of the 40 people we had about an even mix of men and women. Most topics of this nature ( you know what I mean) tend to draw more women and more of the Woo Woo crowd. This was a blend of those who already did some form of energy work as well as others from all walks of life. We had a couple of teachers, some people in marketing, a computer programmer, and even a couple of engineers. The draw for many men is, I believe, the pragmatic aspect of Matrix Energetics. It is a tool you can easily learn and use.....says no more! The quantum physics explanations about how ME might possibly/probably work are hard to dismiss out of hand. No one knows what gravity is or how it works (yes theories exist) but if you pick op a rock and put it on a piece of paper you got yourself a paperweight.

The other people attending were all very nice. Cheryl set the tone that this isn't just an " I teach you and you learn" situation. We were all participants in the learning as well as the teaching. Questions were always welcomes and answered playfully and with humility. What those sitting in the audience said and thought were equally as vital to the learning as what Cheryl said. It is a hard thing to communicate to a group , I suppose, this thing - this subtle thing that you can't just put your finger on like an apple it and say " see everyone here it is this is exactly what it looks like - any questions?" That would be a short workshop indeed.

Cheryl instills through her relaxed style that anybody can do this. She makes it look easy as most practitioners do. The combination of information and breaking up into practice groups is helpful to try to "get" what ME is about. The first group of 3 I was with had some interesting 2 pointing attempt. There was a bit of involuntary twisting and swaying which is typical. It was to jump in with both feet and see how easy it is....or at least how easy it is to try. I remember 2 pointing one woman and she said "wow" and looked surprised. I of course felt nothing and hoped I was not fond out for the incompetent fraud I was. In the second group I was with a really nice teacher from Canada and a woman who used to work in the diamond industry in Manhattan and lived in Ireland for a while. It was in this group that I first felt that "connected" feeling using ME. It was really nice.

The last part of the workshop involved having participants come of front two at a time and practice what they learned on each other. This part really brought it home as you could see and feel that in a short time most people could do this. Some people collapsed, or swayed, or became emotional, or felt something tangible. I feel most people were intrigued but not 100% convinced. I count myself among those. How can you in such a short time accept something that your whole society and experiences say should not work..or at least should not be this easy! I say this after being 2 pointed and being "knocked out" for 5 minutes while my body did some weird involuntary stuff. (it felt amazing). Even with repeated validation like that t is still hard to fully accept.

I first contacted Cheryl after trying to talk myself out of going to the Full 3 day seminar in Toronto Ontario. The “shit hitting the fan" that happens to some folks getting involved in Matrix Energetics was in full swing in my life at the time. It was Marls Frees who told me that this sometimes happens to a small number of folks beginning the Matrix journey...that it is a sort of drastic restructuring to make way for the new. Could be true ...I don't really know for sure. Anyway, the workshop became available only 14 miles away and costing only $125 instead of the full $495 for the Seminar. Plus I would have been away from home for 4 days for the full seminar and had to get a room etc. even though Toronto is only 3 hrs away. I called Cheryl and say " You offer a workshop you think I should go to your workshop or go to the full seminar?" She said without hesitation “Go to the seminar!". Crap! That is not what I wanted to hear. It does speak of her integrity though. In the end I chickened out on going to Toronto.

One really nice thing about Cheryl is that she will actually answer you phone calls and answer her emails too. She is genuinely willing to help without first getting your credit card number. Your questions are not answered by a staff member either or just plain unanswered.

Which do I recommend? Both! You can't go wrong either way. My ability to 2 point with noticeable results increased after Cheryl’s workshop. Was it just more confidence or the practice sessions, or the information, or being within the field at the workshop? I don't know - it was probably all of the above. As you most likely know if you are reading this Matrix Energetics is like the concept of dark matter or the seemingly fruit-loopy concepts of Quantum Physics like the Observation Effect or Spooky Action at a Distance. Come on, I mean it doesn't get any kookier than saying that a particle is a wave till a person observes it or that 2 or more particles can be connected and act as one when separated 100 light years apart. They don't know the mechanism and can only explain the results of the observations. How is this different from Matrix? I touch two points and these things often happen. Getting repeatable results and building on that ..... let's focus there.

Thanks Cheryl!

Being There

No I am not referring to Peter Sellers Movie by the same title....or am I? Those who have seen this movie may remember he was living in a different reality than everyone else around him. He was a simple minded gardener of a wealthy man who was on death's door. His whole life revolved around gardening and watching TV. He was accepting, trusting, positive, and most of all he was always in the moment. When his employer died he was thrown out into the cruel world he had never known. His gift was his presence...his gift affected all he came in contact with. His Gift was Being There!

This is the gift we bring when we enter into Matrix Energetics. We do not come empty waiting to be filled by it. One phrase from the Bible spoken by Jesus is, I believe, the most cryptic as well as the most profound - "The Kingdom of God is Within You" Other variations of the interpretation are " among you" or "in the midst of you". Just as cryptic and just as profound. Have any of you ever been aware of this Kingdom? I think we all have at times.

Have you ever comforted another person who was suffering ...or been comforted yourself? Ever love or been loved? Ever felt Joy? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may be suffering from The Kingdom of God Syndrome. Matrix Energetics has been proven effective at treating KODS... consult your doctor. Side effects may include but are not limited to synchronicity, joy, love, healing, transformation, expanding awareness, and miracles. Should these symptoms persist... Great !

The state, or consciousness, or awareness, or feeling I enter or experience when "dropping down" is perhaps this. It is "Being There", being in the moment and open to whatever shows up, whatever feels right. Of course my mind is trying to take over in the process by saying things like....." Oh no - It's not working, quick try something else, no that is stupid, what were you thinking, etc. ". Is this the only way to enter that "state" of ME? How would I know! I am only saying what I myself notice in hopes that it might be of use to some of you.

When it comes to "fixing" your car, or computer, or squeaky hinge,or whatever with ME I find it is not as easy (for me) to access that same feeling where you are connected to another human and are both "There", co-creating. The intent part is also both elusive, as it involves the thinking brain to a degree, and powerful when more than just your thinking brain is intending.

When I am there with another person... I may feel connected ( oh no, not another word I can't describe) and in that instant things happen. My intent is usually just for something good to happen, and "good" doesn't need defining. I usually feel nothing and am usually suprised when the person tells me they felt this weird " thing". Then they have a hard time telling me what it was and usually use terms like Huh?.....that felt weird......whoah!....etc. Many times they feel nothing and neither do I.

Why is this important? Because we all want validation and verification that it has worked. When the person doesn't collapse into a smiling giggling heap on the floor we might think we did it wrong or didn't do it enough. That is not true. This just happened to me last night after starting this post and stopping to go visit a neighbor. I have "tried" 2 pointing her several times, most of which she tenses up like a board and darts her eyes around. This is probably a bad analogy and shows I am trying to "do something", but it is like trying to hammer a small nail into a large rock. Well I tried again last night and knew she not only resisted it working but didn't really want it to work. I felt nothing and she was just relieved it was done. I think she was just humoring me...which is OK. I get back home and my wife who was sitting on the couch beside where she was standing said when you 2 pointed her I felt these waves roll over me and my whole being kind of vibrated. She really likes to tease me about ME most of the time, calling it things like 2-touching and 2-poking or something else silly. So there was validation. Not the kind I was expecting. Like most validation I get with ME it was humorous as well. What is even more humorous is that I could end every post by saying " I don't know "

Matrix Energetics tip #259 - Being there!

Matrix Energetics in 3 Easy Steps

First I would like to thank those who have responded to my posts. I want to emphasize that I am in no way an expert on Matrix Energetics. I am not a certified practitioner nor am I trained in any other healing modality. But that is the point of Matrix Energetics. It is what Dr. Richard Bartlett says over and over " anyone can do really is that easy" Which leads me to my post for today. I wanted to start this initially for those who are interested in Matrix Energetics and have probably read the book but have many doubts and questions. So I guess we start at Step 1.........


Read the book and have many doubts and questions


Question your sanity for pursuing Matrix Energetics cause it really shouldn't work according to everyday wake up, go about your day, eat your meals, put a lot of focused effort towards getting things done, lather-rinse-repeat reality.


Having completed steps 1 and 2 just keep going, keep trying, keep practicing, and I suppose keep believing that in spite of you......or in spite of you not being Richard Bartlett..... or in spite of all those people who might look at you even "funnier" than they looked at you before..... in spite of all that - it does work!

I know there are probably many more steps ...but let's just lump all the others STEP together and label them STEP( I don't have a key for the infinity symbol so I'll just type it ) INFINITY. The reason is , from what I have gathered from ME workshops and the level 1&2 seminar, and especially my own experiences over the past 8 months is that like life, Matrix Energetics is in many ways uniquely different for each person drawn to it ( or called by it perhaps - yikes!). Yes, there are extremely valuable techniques to learn an practice in the seminars....But again like Dr. Bartlett keeps saying " it is all just made up"! So if you are here reading this, or thinking about signing up for a seminar, or even casually trying it in your life congratulations! You are doing it right. You can ignore my 3 easy steps because if you think about it you are already following your own.

Start at the Beginning

How did I first become drawn to Matrix Energetics? As I have said, I heard Dr. Richard Bartlett interviewed on Whitley Strieber's Dreamland. The interview was on March 22, 2008 and the interviewer was Marla Frees. What Richard Bartlett was saying tied in my lifelong interest in the paranormal and the nature of reality. He always says “It is all made up". That is the reason most healing techniques work to a greater or lesser degree. Prayer works, hypnosis works, acupuncture works, even Voodoo I suppose. The fact that placebos work sometimes just as well as drugs being tested for FDA approval proves this.

I spoke to a fascinating man last year in Toronto who was one of the world’s first genetic engineers. He agreed that placebos can be just as effective and cited one trial where the drug that was approved was only 5% more effective than the placebo. Maureen Caudil, a scientist turned psychic said there was a study done that proved folk remedies for wart removal like rubbing potatoes on warts can actually work - even though by medical scientific knowledge of the cause and cure of warts they should have no effect.

OK, back To Matrix Energetics. The fact that it is WAY crazier than rubbing a potato on a wart and burying it under a full moon does not disqualify it as being potentially effective. The difference is Matrix Energetics ( ME ) can go beyond healing and into the weird realm of transformation. Minor transformations or life altering ones are all there in the sea of possibilities that is ME. You just need to get your feet wet.

OK, now... Back to the beginning again. I bought the book and read it. In much of the first part of the book ,Matrix Energetics: The Science and Art of Transformation by Dr. Richard Bartlett, Richard it trying to explain in layman's terms somewhat how healing/transformation with ME is explained by cutting edge and established Quantum Physics. He does a good job but it is mostly an attempt to convince you that it is not just Voodoo and your left brain hemisphere should just shut up , sit down, and pay attention to the actual events unfolding before you. It is OK to doubt, but by doubting the possibility of ME you have to also doubt some of the firm foundations of modern physics. Left brain "might " have a problem doing that - which puts you in a state of question. And that is a good place to be for Matrix Energetics.

During the reading of the book our favorite pet sheep Maggie had a life threatening event right before birthing which led to a life threatening delivery. My wife Beth had to pull the lamb out and it was fine. Maggie was our bottle baby from the previous year and after such a difficult birth she was unwilling or unable to take care of her lamb (we had to raise her in the house and bottle feed her but she was great). Maggie on the other hand was not doing so well. She was spiraling and unable to eat or digest well. The inability for a ruminant to get its digestive system going can be life threatening under normal conditions let alone the condition the birthing left her in. The vet came out and did what she could but she could barely eat and had severe diarrhea. We kept getting into her the nutrients we could but that rumen had to get going soon... that is she had to start pooping right.

Enter Matrix Energetics. I sat with her in the side yard keeping her company and getting her to eat and drink as we could and monitor her. As I sat with her I was reading the second half of the book. When I got to the part where Richard actually tells you HOW to do a 2 point technique which gets you started doing ME I tried it on Maggie. She was my first Guinea Pig or Guinea sheep, if you will. So I picked two spots to touch and did "IT" having no idea what "IT" was or if I was doing "IT" right and thinking how can this possibly work? Well 5 minutes later she got up took a few steps and pooped almost normal droppings for the first time in about 5 days. From then on she rather quickly recovered.

I just said to myself - Huh? Just a coincidence? Did it really do something? Well I can honestly say I don't know! But there begins my journey with Matrix Energetics, a little faith, a little suspension of belief, some possible results, and a whole lot of doubt that I did anything at all. That doesn't sound like a good recipe for encouragement or success but it is. We all have to start somewhere. My journey started with a sick sheep and the question “What if?"

1 Week Back or is it 1Week Ahead?

It has been almost a week since the Baltimore Seminar. It was incredible, amazing, and most of all perhaps - FUN! There is more to it though. There is an indefinable quality where words do not suffice. A feeling, an awareness, a sense - something that you bring back.

So I have spent the past week catching up on my business and getting our little farm ready for our average annual 16 feet of snow. And, I have been integrating Matrix Energetics into ME. It was there before but I doubted it more....I still doubt it: I am just doubting myself perhaps. Either way. Without going into detail in this post I can say that my ability to access Matrix Energetics ( again whatever that is! ) has become more natural.

I have two pointed some friends and neighbors since coming back with interesting results, to say the least. One thing that has changed is my willingness to try ME with people. I am less embarrassed about explaining what it is, and asking if I can practice on someone. I usually say something like " I am learning this weird new light touch thing"- Is it OK if I try something?" The Archetypes have been particularly useful for me and I find the weird images I get in my mind's eye to be significant to either the person or the immediate situation. Odd thing is that they don't seem significant to me at the time they pop up. One time it was precognitive and one other time the person FELT and described exactly what I was imagining while I was 2-pointing!

Is it LIFE or is it MATRIX ?
