"The 33" is a powerful movie demonstrating that commitment to a singular purpose will take you all the way home. Trapped in a mine two thousand feet below the earth, thirty-three men join in mind to make the decision for God. The egoic fear-based thought system is not undone by staying on the surface of the mind; we must be willing to go down to the very basement to fully unplug from the ego. Doubt thoughts, darkness, guilt and the wish for death must be looked upon and forgiven before the mind can allow the light of truth to shine brightly. 

The men have to overcome many obstacles on their journey to the surface: lack of food, water, facing addictions and healing past thoughts, and learning to lay aside personal desires, arrogance and pride in order to operate for the good of the whole.
The families of the underground men gather on the surface in a powerful demonstration of the idea that we do not go home alone. They join in mind in the decision for healing, and they vow not to move from the spot until their men are brought home alive and well. This is a gem of a movie that will have you crying and laughing as the men face their darkest fears and accept the truth that God is with us and thy will be done. Healing is not limited by time and it matters not if it is your first day on the job or your last day—everybody is saved in the Spirit’s plan of awakening, and healing is for all! Hallelujah!

Movies are an excellent way to watch your mind, to pay attention to your emotions, and to help you discover your unconscious beliefs.
