Publisher's Summary

The idea that “thoughts become things” has become a meme in popular culture. It’s held as a firm proposition in metaphysics, and some spiritual teachers ascribe infinite powers to the mind. But are these claims scientifically accurate? What does the scientific evidence tell us about the scope of the human mind to transform thoughts into reality? 

New research and new discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology, cymatics (the study of wave phenomena), public health, and quantum physics are demonstrating that thoughts can indeed be profoundly creative. In Mind to Matter, award-winning author Dawson Church examines the scientific facts and reviews the studies that show, step by step, exactly how our minds create material form. As each piece of the puzzle falls into place, the science turns out to be even more astonishing than the metaphysics. 

Throughout the book, Church shares illuminating case histories - up-close, authentic personal accounts of people who had experiences of turning mind into matter. Drawn from the worlds of medicine, sports, business, healing, art, and scientific discovery, these stories run the gamut from profound to inspiring to heart-wrenching. Meticulously researched evidence is presented in highly relatable form, using engaging, understandable, nontechnical analogies. 

As we discover how the universe operates synchronistically, we come to understand that while we have individual local minds, we also participate in universal nonlocal mind. Mind to Matter shows us that as we take charge of our individual power to create, we have the potential, as a species, to catalyze a transformation of our whole world.

Outstanding info... delivery less so.

Dawson Church is very smart and stays right on top of current mind-body research. This book reflects that and presents the information in an easy-to-understand way. I really love the information!

However, his choice to read the book himself was not a good one. I find his delivery distracting, which makes it harder to absorb the material. This may be only my bias, but listen to the sample and see what you think.

I ended up getting the Kindle version since the information is outstanding. And, of course, I can annotate, highlight and return to particularly relevant sections in Kindle.

All-in-all, if you are interested in the latest mind-body research, I highly recommend the book. You'll have to decide for yourself if the Audible version is a good fit for you.

you are not the Observer your mitochondria is

this is a really great book for those who are interested in the power of the Mind. if you have read any of dr. Joe dispenza books this is a great addition to your knowledge set. often times it is helpful to hear the same message expressed from a different person.

Does this guy have a head cold?

The material is fascinating but his voice is so annoying. It sounds like he’s totally stopped up after a while it gets really irritating. He should have someone else narrate his books.

Last 3 chapters are a grand slam worth waiting for

in a world where such a large portion of our population is indentured to anxiety, this book not only explains the value of mindfulness, but presents compelling argument for unlocking ourselves from the prison of our own mind so that we can experience and become emissaries of love, light, success, and serenity.

Fascinating!

Incredible. Not woo-woo... very scientific but easily understandable by the everyday layperson. Love it. I bought the Kindle and Audible versions and love them both! This is one I'll listen to over and over. It's a life changer!

Awful narration

I just can’t do this book on audible
The narrator is just so bad, weird pauses all the time and speaking way to fast at other times
Should have hired a narrator, I just can’t !

Loved this book!!!

I am so grateful to have learned about Mind to Matter and Dawson Church via Christy Whitman. What a treasure this book is indeed. I am a fan of the teachings of Abraham Hicks and was happy to hear that Mr. Church learned of the concept for this book because his wife is a fan as well.
Today I was feeling low due to many things, one of which was the Supreme Court ruling on the travel ban. With a heavy heart I’ve gone thru the day listening to and finishing this book. It brought me hope and reinforced my beliefs that sending love to all is the best way to live. Because I practice and pay attention to the law of attraction, I remain hopeful. Because of listening to the book and remaining hopeful, I have had two extraordinary encounters today!! I met a like minded person at the recycling and just now a couple at the grocery store. We spoke from our hearts and in depth about things that matter to us and will continue to be in touch and probably build a lasting friendship!! I live in Montana. It is an amazing place and I am blessed by being able to keep an open mind and getting to meet others that live here that do as well. Thanks for the book Mr. Church and I will join you in spreading love to pave the way for a better now and evermore. Signed with much love and a hopeful heart! Sarah Hoffman

Horrifyingly Stupid, Astonishingly Incompetent

This is scary. The fact that there is someone who would write a book this lacking in logic, and there are people giving it more good reviews than not, is unsettling to say the least. Even the top review that said it was "disappointing" seems to be clueless to its real deficits. *I am begging anyone that thinks this is a good book to understand that if you think this- you have gigantic blind spots in your thinking and reasoning skills, and should seek out some genuine critical thinking instruction.* And you wouldn't even need an advanced course on critical reasoning skills, just basics.

Citing studies does not in itself mean anything. The studies must be relevant to what the point is, and the study should prove something the author is talking about in no uncertain terms. There are also lots of criteria to name in studies so that we are somewhat familiar with it, like sample sizes and if there is conflicting research, other normal things that a functioning mind would need to evaluate, or be persuaded.

One horrifying bit that I remember is the correlation he props up about people *fearing* they would get heart disease. He says a study showed that people *fearing* heart disease had more cases of heart disease than people who did not fear it.

If your mind does not pose to you twenty questions about this assertion, or at least a couple of major ones, it's not doing you any services.

The author does not address any logical question that would arise from this, he states that as if it's supposed to mean something to a person, or as if he knows exactly who is going to read this book. For one thing, that I should not have to mention, people that feared heart disease probably had a couple of things going on. 1. family history 2.eating habits known to be associated with clogged arteries. He doesn't mention WHY the sample group of people had a fear of heart disease. (How many in the sample group? Who knows! ) Dawson goes in to no detail he just trots that out like we're supposed to learn something from it, and people that like this book are just fine and dandy with this. It's scary. It scares me. So people are reading this, and thinking, sure, that sounds fine... So basically Dawson either is not bright, or he's an out and out charlatan. Someone should use him and his material and write about what is wrong with this area of popularity that dances on the outside of science altogether, but is treated like it's our new understanding of science. There are kids on youtube that could do this. Kids. Maybe I'll contact some channels and see if they will review this and his other book The Genie in your Genes. At least click the one star reviews and read those.

Frankly, I'm not sure how we hold our civilization together with people walking around thinking this is a good book, not that we're doing that grand of a job, civilization wise. I'm a busy person, I don't want to spend another second on this trash. I actually believe the premise he was attempting to assert, I'm not here to get angry about the topic, at all.

I wonder how many people will actually repeat the garbage that studies have proven (or the wonderfully nebulous, "studies show"... ) people that fear heart disease are more likely to contract it, as if that's cause and effect? Why even put it in here if it's just a loose correlation that can be explained because their fear is based on them being a real candidate for heart disease? That is not what he was implying. Just absolute nonsense, charlatan gibberish.

Kept coming back for more!

This book was incredible. As I dive more into spiritual growth and the background of what really makes this world tick, as far as vibrational energies are concerned, this book was a hammer on the nail for me. Reading different books that share similar findings, Mind to Matter was the best read I've had for the year of 2018 thus far and is so far ahead in my mind compared to any reads this year that this title will hold its place in my mind for a while! More about the book: Science backs spirituality....and of course the long debated topic of turnings dreams into reality or in better terms: what is thought of internally manifests externally. If that doesn't intrigue you then maybe hold off reading this one until you are ready.

The only "complaint" I have is when it was ending... I was pretty bummed. So, my wife and I have already restarted it! Can't recommend this enough!

This is a book everyone should read.

Beautifully written, and narrated, this book will broaden the mind of even the most blinkered or sceptical.
For those that are actively seeking, it shows a clear path to enlightenment.

Most highly recommended.
Thank you Mr Church.

AMAZING!!! You need to read this

This is such an incredible, fascinating and amazing book!
I was captivated and found myself questioning the way I look at the world and everything in it.
Dawson Church takes you through a scientific journey including amazing case studies and stories of the power of mindset WITH scientific evidence to support the claims.
I love the extra material available on the website to support the book and I have even tried the ECO meditation that he recommends.
A great book.
