Matrix Energetics: The Science and Art of Transformation


Dr. Richard Bartlett, who holds degrees in both chiropractic and naturopathy, has stepped away from his medical practice to help support a shift in humanity’s understanding of reality.

Putting all talk of quantum physics and morphogenetic fields aside for a moment, Dr. Bartlett’s practice of Matrix Energetics is the stuff of alchemists, wizards, shapeshifters and the lot who are not limited by space and time. It’s about moving into the slipstream and resting in No Mind. It’s about not thinking in terms of limitation. It’s about using imagination and being open to any possibility.

Certainly, that’s a tall order for most of us in this linear, results-oriented world. How do we get out of our minds long enough to manipulate the waves of probability? How do we even wrap our minds around what seems to be a healing technique, but actually is a state of mind?

Dr. Bartlett will be in Minneapolis in mid-September to teach some of us how to do what he does, despite acknowledging that he doesn’t even know what he is doing, and at the same time noting that you or I most likely can do even more incredible things with Matrix Energetics than he can. Matrix Energetics instruction will be September 12-15 at MinneapolisAirport Marriott. For more information, visit or call 1.800.269.9513.

Physicist William A. Tiller, Ph.D., professor emeritus at Stanford University, writes this in the forward to Dr. Bartlett’s groundbreaking book, Matrix Energetics: The Science and Art of Transformation (Atria Books):

What appears to be pure magic in Dr. Bartlett’s healing treatments is, in fact, a rational manipulation of energies and information in a lawful fashion based upon his theoretical construct of reality, which is appreciably ‘outside the box’ of our present paradigm. …As a species, we are cognitively moving away from space-time awareness only and into frequency domain awareness.”

videos on his website, Dr. Bartlett seems to be doing the same thing as spiritual
faith healers who touch their followers and watch them crumple to the floor.
In a phone interview with Edge Life, he does his best to explain the unexplainable,
even suggesting that Matrix Energetics possibly touches upon the miraculous
work of one of the greatest masters of manipulating space and time that we
know – Jesus.

You write that Matrix Energetics is not a technique, but a state
of mind. Can you elaborate on that?
Dr. Richard Bartlett:
It’s a consciousness
technology. If it is just a technique, then you limit it by the expression
of what you believe it can do. Unfortunately, I don’t even know the limits
of what it can do.

It’s great to use it as a technique, because you can get stellar results from using that way. Many people who have taken the classes have performed healings on themselves and others and their animals and their TVs and their cars, but it also has expanded consciousness, brought joy to people’s lives, brought in new knowledge, psychic abilities and all sorts of things.

Would you say that we really don’t have a clear idea of what the limits are on it?
I don’t think there are any limits. I think the limits are based upon
what we believe the physics of normal existence are, but I don’t think the
physics of normal existence apply to this.

You write in Matrix Energetics that
we have amazingly low expectations for what we think we can get back from the
universe or out of life. Why is that?
I think our expectations are based
upon what we have gotten back from our environment, not what we have gotten
back from the universe. It is based upon what we’ve seen in our lives and what
we have actually come to expect by our surroundings and by our interactions
with other people and within ourselves. If we have terrible inner dialogue
from, perhaps, our childhood or we have experiences in which we prayed and
no one has answered, then over time then we form expectations that no one’s

Two key words I have seen in your book are “possibilities” and “imagination.” How
do these words relate to Matrix Energetics?
Imagination defines the parameters of your consciousness. Whatever you can
imagine, they say you can achieve. There is a brilliant and maverick scientist,Tom
Bearden, who says that we talk about physical laws, but he believes there are
no physical laws. Physical laws are a boundary state based upon what we can actually
imagine being possible. He believes that the idea of a natural law is unnatural
and that you can do anything that you can imagine, but it might take your whole life just to figure out how.

In your book you bring up the idea that if you
can imagine you can put your hand through a wall, you probably could do it
at some point, but there is collective consciousness that keeps that from happening.

RB: It’s the collective unconsciousness. Rupert Sheldrake talked about morphic resonance or morphic fields [wiki: patterns that govern the development of forms, structures and arrangements]. Morphic fields gave him the idea of morphogenetic fields, which provide information to the DNA to create a living structure. The DNA is like an antenna for that information that then informs the species on how to develop, what qualities to develop and even controls, to a certain degree, the evolution of that species.

If you take that further, you see that morphic fields are fields of information – patterned information in action at a distance. Morphic fields take on the qualities that are programmed into them – the expectations, the thoughts, the creativity, the ideas – and then they organize around those thoughts and ideas. The more you feed into those ideas or those patterns, the more powerful those fields become.

So when you have a certain idea, expectation, ability or even physicality, you have a field that you tap into, and then that field provides the information for how to do that, how to perform it, how to become it. As long as you play by the rules that are ingrained within that field, then you have guidelines for what you are able to do.

How does Matrix Energetics relate to quantum physics?
RB: I don’t even know if quantum physics really exists. It may be one of those morphic fields we are talking about. It’s like the idea of the interlocking
universes or multiverses, or even people’s idea of Heaven and Hell. In the film What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams, it showed the idea that whatever you believe something to be, for instance when you die, that is exactly the parameters that you will find yourself in.

But what if quantum physics is one of those fields of information we believe because we put information in and have a map that suggests the universe works this way. We have programmed it to work that way. So as long as we’re within the field of information where we believe we know the rules, and have the guidelines, that’s what we’ll see, and that’s what will come to be in our physical scientific experiments.

So there may be some other more mindblowing fields beyond quantum physics.

Whatever we can imagine.
RB: I don’t think quantum physics exists and, in fact, even with particle
physics, I think we keep finding more particles because we want to find particles.

What is the matrix?
The matrix in the movie, of course, was a simulation, and I think that’s what it is. If you think about the idea that morphic fields basically create information – and if all things are composed of light and information – that means that the morphic fields that we dwell in basically create the grid of consciousness that determine what we are able to perceive, be, sense, and evolve into. So, we may just be living in a grid of our own illusion.

So whatever you believe you will perceive is what you perceive. Perhaps when you leave a room, it no longer exists.
RB: I was actually in a room with one of the greatest minds of our time, mathematician
Basil Hiley, with Karl Pribram, a neuroscientist who developed the idea that
the brain and nervous system function holographically, that there’s no such
thing as a linear process. One of his ideas is that there is literally nothing
out here out there other than a bunch of waves and patterns of interference
that we then construct with our eyes, which are visual detectors of this information.
They sense the waves, and then inside of our brain we construct what we expect
to see out there and then re-project it out so that we have the experience
of what’s out there.

I can’t even begin to talk about what Basil Hiley has accomplished. It’s highly mathematical. Years ago, I was actually treating Basil Hiley and we had a power outage. When the power went out the room went black, he looked up and says, “I wonder if the universe still exists outside of this room?” And he was serious.

What is the goal of Matrix Energetics?
To transform people’s expectations to the unexpected.

Describe the art of the Two-Point, the procedure described in the book that allows you to apply Matrix Energetics in connection with another person.
The Two-Point
is based upon quantum physics mythology. What it does is it allows you to perform a measurement. In the Bible, it says with one measurement you measure, the same measurement will be metered out to you. So, your measurements are based upon your perceptual bias. But we can all agree, because we have agreed, that this is so many inches, or we can measure in feet, or we can measure in smells or sounds or feelings.

The Two-Point creates one point that is your starting point for observation, what you would call your reference point. Then you pick another point that you arbitrarily can relate to the second point. For example, say you identified one point on a human body and say it feels stuck, hard or rigid. We’re just making this up. Now, if you pick another point – and it really doesn’t matter where – you find a relationship to the first point so it also feels stuck, hard or rigid, or it makes the first and second point feel connected. That feeling of connection then allows you to make a measurement.

At the quantum level, the act of measuring collapses the wave function of what you are observing. Observer and observed become entangled. At that point, miracles are possible.

As the person who is performing the art of the Two-Point, what exactly are you doing during this process?
As little as possible. The reason is, if you are trying to do something, you’ll actually not be able to do it because the act of trying to do something involves the conscious mind and the conscious mind cannot participate in the collapsible wave function. That happens beyond time and space. You have to go to a point of timelessness and spacelessness where you are in between your thoughts. Matrix Energetics actually occurs in between your thoughts.

It’s like this. In the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade with Harrison Ford and Sean Connery, there’s a scene where they’re tied back to back and they’re in trouble, right? And Sean has just set this thing on fire and he goes, “Is something happening? I don’t know. Is something happening? I don’t know. Is something happening? I don’t know.” Well, in between the “Is something happening?” and “I don’t know” is where the magic is.

You have to give the conscious mind something to do, and the measurement actually tricks the left brain into becoming engaged. When it does that, in the space between becoming engaged anything can happen.

So during the art of the Two-Point, the process of making the two observations tricks the mind to go into the No Mind?
That’s correct. It’s like if you give the conscious mind something to do, then things can happen behind the scenes, where the parallel processor of the right brain becomes engaged.

Like John Lennon said, “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.”
That’s pretty much it, yeah.

So at that point you’re tapping into the matrix?
You’re tapping into the quantum field or the matrix or the parallel universes or however you define it. But, of course, however you define it then defines what you’re tapping into. That’s why it’s useful to have a quantum mythology, because the quantum mythology is far less limited than your conscious mind can perceive it.

You’re teaching Matrix Energetics now to anybody who wants to come and learn it?
Anybody that wants to show up, please come. I don’t know why we’re getting so many engineers in our audience, but we’re getting about 10 for every group of 400 people.

I’m not so keen on healers. The problem with being a healer is you think you know how to heal, and if you think you know how to heal, well then there’s your rules. If what I’m doing doesn’t match your rules, then you will make it match your rules, because you have to do that to stay within the rule set. We make assumptions that we know what something is based upon our perceptual bias. If you can drop your perceptual bias, you can absolutely learn from the unknown. That’s a little harder for people who think they know what they’re doing.

I’m kind of like Socrates in the sense that I might be one of the smarter men in the world, because I know I don’t know anything.
