How I Escaped The Matrix

You’ve probably first heard of the matrix before because of Keanu Reeves. But what is the matrix really? Is the matrix real? Are we living in the matrix?

How Can I Escape The Matrix?

There are 4 things you need to take control of if you want to escape the matrix. Those things are your time, money, energy, and attention. That’s how I escaped the matrix and you can do the same.

 We will discuss how these things can help you escape the matrix one by one. But first, let’s talk about what I mean by escaping the matrix.

What Is The Matrix

In 1999, The Matrix movie came out. I know Keanu is a gorgeous human and an amazing actor, but the movie itself actually has introduced some interesting concepts.

And what is the matrix about? It’s about the concept that reality is an illusion and that we’re all just fluid capsules functioning as nourishment for computers.

It sounds like fiction because it is but, in a way, we are actually caught in the matrix.

But the matrix that I’m talking about is the situation that everyone’s caught up in where we almost act like slaves to the government.

We can’t just do whatever we want because we are highly dependent on jobs that take away all our time.

We live in a world where we need to give all our time and energy just so we could make enough to survive.

This is the 9-5 matrix that most people are caught up in.

Why Does The Matrix Exist

The matrix exists because of power and greed. There are people who want to be at the top and they don’t want you to know that you are extremely capable of attracting abundance.

These people, industries, want you to think that you need them in order to survive and so they ask you to work 9 to 5, 5 days a week.

Sometimes they even ask you to do overtime or work during the holidays.

They use your talents and skills to help make their companies grow while you barely have time to spend doing the things you love.

Escaping The Matrix Meaning

So what I mean is having passive income from multiple sources.

It’s not having to rely on any one job, country, person, or business, and being able to move wherever you want to spend your time.

You can wake up tomorrow and decide that you’re going to Turkey or Cambodia and you can just do that. 

That’s what I mean by escaping the matrix. You don’t have to ask anyone, you don’t have to. 

You don’t have to save up or wait for the long holidays. You can go wherever you want, do whatever you want, and you’re not constrained by anyone or anything. 

How To Escape The Matrix

That sounds amazing but how do you do it? As I said, I break this process into four steps. 

Each of these steps is equally important so make sure you stick around to the end. 

1: Time

So the first one we’re gonna talk about is time. You need to have the freedom to decide what to do with your time.

If you have to go to work every day, from 9 to 5, in an office, you don’t have much control over your time. You don’t even have any control over your money. 

You don’t have control over your life because you have to do certain things. 

You have to get ready, travel to the office, work from 9 to 5, travel back home, and prepare dinner for yourself. 

At the end of the day, you don’t really have much time left because you need to have an early night in order to be able to get up early the next day and do it all over again.

Basically, you’re being controlled by somebody else. By a boss, a business, whatever it is. 

Do you want to spend more time reading and learning about your passion?

Whether that’s traveling, learning, setting up the next system, growing, scaling, or whatever it is, you’re free to do that if you set up multiple income sources.

gadgets, notebook, pen, and coffee on a table

So that’s the first thing. You need to take back control of your time. This is what I’ve managed to do by separating my time from my income. 

I set things up very early in a way that I don’t have to spend my time in order to make money. 

The money is made passively through systems I set up. This is how I was thinking: 

“How can I create more leverage in the future where I don’t need to spend any time doing it, except maybe some setup time in the beginning?” 

So I might spend a few hours or days setting up the system at the beginning, and then that will pay me constantly for many years to come. 

This is one of the most important ways I have been able to escape the matrix.

I set up multiple income sources like investments, businesses, youtube channels, websites, and ways where I can give value.

I create videos, content, and other things that can help other people. In return, I get paid passive income most of the time.

I actually show you how to do this in Abundance Manifestation Academy.

2: Money

The second way to escape the matrix is with money. 

With my money, I have set it up in a way that any one income source can vanish and I’m still fine. 

It’s actually very easy to set this up. You just need to be systematic. Just set multiple income sources up one by one. 

It might take you a year, it might take you five years, but once they’re set up, they’re on to be stable.

They’re going to keep paying you every month without you having to do anything. 

This is really the ultimate key to freedom because you put your eggs into multiple baskets.

Any income source, channel, business platform, social media platform account, or even an entire country or bank that I use, could completely vanish, and I would be absolutely fine because I’ve diversified across so many different things.

This is how I believe I was able to escape the matrix.

Let’s say you have all your money in one bank in one country. 

All it takes is for that government to say, “we see that you like this inaccurate post on Facebook that our fact checkers have deemed to be fake. Now we’re going to disable your bank account.”

This literally happened in  Australia or Canada. It’s crazy. What are you gonna do if that happens to you?

Meanwhile, if you had diversified, if you had 10 bank accounts in five different countries, they would have no power over you. 

You have freedom, you can do, say, and go wherever you want and no one government, country, platform, business, or company can do anything about it.  You’re completely outside of that grid of control.

Most people are relying heavily on one job. If they decide to get rid of you, you’re completely scrapped.

The mistake people make is when they get fired or lose their job, they immediately go looking for another job, and then they are on the same track all over again. 

Now you’re in a different job, with a different boss, but the danger is still there. 

You could be fired instantly and have no income, no savings, no, nothing. 

So what I did is essential. I went through every area of my life.

I said, “What about if I lost my Google account? What if I lost my Instagram? Or this website? What if this bank shut down?”

So let’s say I have $1000. What I would do is split that $1000 into five separate accounts, ideally in different countries.

It might sound extreme but this, in my opinion, is how you can escape the matrix.

Man opening Youtube on phone

If you’ve been following my stuff for a while, you may or may not know that I have actually 10 different versions of my Youtube channel on 10 different video streaming platforms.

Apart from that, I have different kinds of platforms that I’m on where, if one of them closed down, it does not matter.

Youtubing is one tiny piece of my business. I could lose every single channel on every single platform and it wouldn’t really matter. 

The mistake that a lot of people fall into is that they just depend on one or two things for their entire life. 

If one of those things breaks now you’re completely screwed. 

3: Energy

The next one is energy. When I say energy, I really mean the physical and biological energy to do things. 

So this comes down to your body. Your muscles, your central nervous system, and also your brain, like your ability to actually think about things and focus.

This, unfortunately, is being absolutely destroyed by platforms like Tiktok. Short video content is frying your attention span and you can do a test right now. 

If you don’t believe that your attention span is going down the drain, try to sit there for five minutes and do nothing. Just focus on your breathing for five minutes and that’s it.  Most people on the internet cannot do that.

Your attention span has gone down below that of goldfish which has an average attention span of about 8 seconds. 

If you watch videos on Tiktok and reels, pay attention to how long it takes before you scroll up and swipe to the next video. 

For most people, it’s under four seconds. So it sounds crazy but this is how it is these days. 

Make sure that your energy is strong, and this is what I basically did through biohacking. 

I was able to find a series of hacks that would optimize my body and mind by doing these things every day for a number of years. 

man sleeping

I’ve got to a point where I just have energy. I sleep really well. I track my sleep and my sleep and readiness scores are usually very good. 

I’m usually very well rested and I have the mental and physical energy throughout the day and there seems to be almost no downtime, no afternoon slump.  My blood sugar levels are very stabilized. 

I have been taking blood tests to prove that what I’m doing is actually beneficial and my results are always optimal. 

So I take a test in the UK called Thrive, but as I’m moving around I need to find an alternative. 

I’m sure that wherever you are, you can find this sort of service where they send you a vial and a little like pinprick device thing.

You put the blood into the vial and then you send it back. They test your vitamin levels and all that. 

Long story short, through spiritual biohacking, I’ve been able to massively optimize every biomarker in my body and raise my vibrational frequency.

My metabolic age, meaning the age of my cells, is four to five years younger than my actual age and it’s getting better every six months as well. 

If you don’t have energy, strength, and willpower, you are again very much screwed. 

If you focus on something enough to get it done, whether it’s building a business, researching something, or understanding a concept. 

Let’s say you move from one country to another. How does residency work? 

How does the legal system work? How do they interplay between the two countries? 

There are things that would require your energy in the future to really escape the matrix and make big moves. 

If you can’t focus for more than four seconds at a time, you won’t be able to do that.

I’ve been able to massively optimize my brain power, my physical strength, and my immunity.  I rarely get sick. that I can’t actually remember the last time.

If you want to know how I did this, check out my spiritual biohacking blog post.

Your body is designed to resist disease and stay healthy.

The problem is when people don’t take full responsibility for their own health.

“Well, it’s because this person didn’t wear a mask. That’s why I’m sick.”

It’s absolute nonsense. Your health, for the most part, is your responsibility. 

You decide what you eat, where you go, your habits, how much you exercise, how much you drink, and how well you sleep.

You decide, for the most part, the things that make up your immunity.

Of course, there are some things that could be outside of your control but 80 to 90% is on you.

Apart from lifestyle changes, listening to frequencies also helps raise your vibrations. 

If you’re interested in that I have the shifting vibrations audio tracks encoded more strongly with frequencies, golden ratio, and positive energy.

4: Attention

And number four is attention. This last one, I would say, is just as important as the others. 

Attention is a very powerful aspect of how I escaped the matrix. 

Are you are constantly binge-watching the latest Netflix drama series, constantly scrolling on Tiktok, or playing all the latest music?

stack of newsapers

“What’s the latest trend? What’s Kylie Jenner wearing? What are the royals doing?” No one cares. 

“This celebrity has been spotted at a beach talking to this celebrity.” No one cares.

The media tries to make you care by making it into a headline, by sensationalizing it. Who cares what one celebrity is doing?

It doesn’t matter. What matters is your life, your experiences, and the legacy that you’re trying to build for yourself, how you affect others around you.

So if you can’t even control your attention, you’re pretty much screwed. You’ll be distracted, pulled left and right.

You’re on to be spending all your time reading about the latest headlines, watching content about whatever the latest virtue-signaling nonsense on TV happens to be that week.

The next thing you know, a different flag goes up. You change your Facebook profile picture to a different virtue-signaling cause that you don’t really care about. 

men doing news coverage

You just think you should care about it but you don’t really understand it. 

You think you understand because the media tells you what to think and then you adopt that belief as your own, without really questioning where it came from. 

They want you to believe what the media company wants you to believe, and it’s just a mess. 

Your attention is very important. You need to be able to discern what is true and what is not true, regardless of who said it.

Most of the world is just a victim of an appeal to authority. They will see an authority figure saying something and assume that just because they are an authority figure, they’re telling the truth. 

This is not the case. This has never been the case and in fact, most often than not, the authority figures are in the wrong throughout history on almost any issue. 

So one of the things I’ve focused on a lot is attention, making sure I can channel my attention into the right things and ignore the things that are just a distraction.

Those that are not going to benefit anyone but are just a waste of time.
