Expectations Can Limit You

In order to deal with and meet the challenge of people's expectations, I tell them that an experience with
Matrix Energetics can mean everything or can mean nothing: no thing! If you observe what I am doing as evidence
that a particular thing has occurred, this in turn implies that by the power of your consciousness, your observation
of one specific outcome, you may in turn limit the expression of all other possible desirable outcomes from the same experience. The act of choosing, as they say in quantum physics, collapses all the other probable occurrences
into the one event or result that is consciously chosen. If I say that our interaction is about a "thing" then I have
limited what "it" can be. In order to include all of the possibilities you have to consider what might normally be
deemed impossible and make them part of the solution-set. If we interpret the ideas of quantum physics liberally
and with a large dose of imagination, we can begin to understand that for each possible outcome many other probability realities can occur-perhaps even some things that would be considered impossible within the context of our mutually assured construction of reality.

So within the framework of my interaction with the people at an event, many things may happen, even some that
I did not consciously participate in. I have received calls and e-mails describing how, in a number of instances,
someone in the audience had a healing event simply by sitting in the morphic field generated by the presentation.
While this is obviously a very desirable occurrence, I can in no way promise that something of this nature will occur
in any given set of circumstances, but nor will I be able to guarantee that it will not. Fortunately, those things are not entirely up to my conscious awareness or participation.

Expect the Unexpected
People will attach meanings to things. So whatever you see me do, you will see it through your own eyes and
interpret it through your database of experiences. Each person might have a different experience, based
on how you have set up the rules for deciding what things mean to you. Whatever meaning you make is ultimately only about you. Don't make it about faith healing, or knocking people to the floor. Also, don't think that if it doesn't
happen, you are doing something wrong. That is just about how you interpret events within your worldview.
You will see what you expect to see, and learn, in many cases, only within the context of what you already think you know.

Are You Ready to Wake Up in the Matrix?
Reach down and touch the surface of a table that is nearby. You probably think that when you are touching the top
of a table that its surface is hard, that it is a solid, physical object. But really, the table is composed of a bunch of electrostatic charges that pop in and out of existence continually. If you learned to see the table from a quantum
viewpoint or way of looking, perhaps if you could absolutely hold that desired state, you could put the fingers of your
hand right through that tabletop. But don't try to do that if you see the table as a hard, fixed, structural object; you
might break your hand!

Getting to a foothold in consciousness where experiences in what others and I call non-ordinary reality is not only
possible, but becomes second nature, requiring constant practice in stretching the boundaries of your beliefs so that
the flexibility of your new state practically demands that your experience of the world around you undergo a
transformational shift. This is one of the things that I think the Matrix Energetics seminar does for those who attend.
We provide a safe harbor for you to experiment and to map unusual, useful, and reproducible states of consciousness
that can aid you in shifting the parameters of your awareness into a wave-front or quantum conscious state.

Once those state changes and new perceptions are accompanied by quantifiable experiences within the course of the seminar experiment, then you begin to experience confidence that this is something that is not weird, or "out there.
" It is merely another way of observing, which can and does produce physical changes in the people and things that
you practice with. Once the mind has stretched to encompass the reality of a new experience it can never shrink back entirely into the old way of seeing the world. Like my example given earlier in this book, suddenly you look out into the previously empty harbor, but now you perceive the presence of "ships." What was previously there, but unperceived, suddenly appears obvious and just as real as anything else in your immediate environment. Welcome to day one of
a new life's expression! This is what makes Matrix Energetics so much more than just a technique or system of healing.

“Richard Bartlett is an invaluable gift to this world. He is one of the few people on the planet who are breaking the boundaries of what we have imagined to be possible for humankind.”~ Rhonda Byrne, executive producer of The SecretRichard Bartlett with Rhonda Byrne creator of "The Secret"
Richard decided to attend chiropractic school after meeting Dr. Jacque Rowe, an inspiring and unique chiropractor. Dr. Bartlett attended Parker Chiropractic College graduating in 1987. While in school, his second child was born with bronchitis, asthma, and he would get pneumonia every third week of his life.
Deciding that he would have to find the answer himself, he started a self study path , eventually learning and practicing over 30 technique systems. In the course of his studies, Dr. Bartlett learned TBM as taught by Dr. Victor Frank , chiropractor. His son responded to this system and was healed.

After graduating Parker in 1987 Richard moved to Montana where he maintained a busy practice until 1996. Desiring to expand his practice scope in order to better be able to better serve his patient base, and the increasingly complex clinical cases he was seeing, Dr. Bartlett decided to attend Naturopathic school. His degree in Naturopathic medicine was completed in December of 2000.

“In 1996 my life took a new and surprising turn. While attending Bastyr University of Naturopathic medicine, and working full time in my day job as a chiropractor, I experienced a life changing event which redirected the entire course of my clinical experience. Call it a mystical occurrence, spiritual vision, outright hallucination, or as Dr. Jim Parker called it, the experience of being ' naturally right', suddenly the act of lightly touching a patient with focused intent created dramatic, often startling changes. Bones would realign themselves, chronic pain patterns would disappear often with only one brief session, scoliosis curvatures would re align right before my eyes.”

“As time went on this phenomenon seemed to grow stronger, sometimes each week revealing new and marvelous outcomes. Chronic conditions began to change even though they were often not even a conscious focus for the treatment. In addition people began to report that their emotional states, belief patterns, their very lives were mysteriously being transformed. Better yet these changes appeared to continue over time. My practice, always emotionally satisfying, became a profound ,and deeply moving day to day experience.”

“The biggest surprise was yet to come. Much to my astonishment I was able to teach my practice partner Dr. Dunn how to duplicate my results proving this ability was not just some special gift, but rather a readily teachable system that in a weekend seminar could be learned ,and the results duplicated by professional and lay person alike. I have now taught seminars for the last two years and the feedback from participants is even better than I hoped for. Chiropractors frequently tell me how the simple procedures taught in this seminar have super charged their techniques.”

This entirely new paradigm utilizes the principles and science of Subtle Energy, and Quantum physics, coupled with the incredible power of active imagination and focused intent to produce physical verifiable effects that often defy rational explanation. Miracles happen every day, Matrix Energetics provides a technology and scientific framework to allow for their every day occurrence.
