Publisher's Summary

Playing the Matrix is a master class for creating the life you want to live. Tried and true, delivered and perfected over a decade while being shared live with tens of thousands of students in 132 cities, in 34 countries, upon six continents.

New Thought leader and New York Times best-selling author Mike Dooley brings to bear his advanced course on living deliberately and creating consciously. The concepts Mike shares here make up his most impactful, most transformational program ever. For the first time, these complete ideas are available in audiobook form.

At the heart of the Matrix lies a simple yet highly unexpected concept for creating major life change, unlike anything shared by other teachers, past or present. It clearly reveals why "manifesting" sometimes works with incredible ease, why it sometimes doesn't work at all, and why, on occasion, it works and yet in hindsight we wish it hadn't. You'll not only learn about the "Bermuda Triangle of manifesting" that too often leads to heartbreak and loss, you'll discover how to navigate around it, under full sail, with new "aha!" moments as you come to understand:

  • How to achieve clarity in purpose and desire
  • How to avoid contradictions and self-sabotage
  • How to fuel your dreams with passion while not attaching to unimportant details and outcomes
  • How to plan and take action on your dreams without messing with the "cursed hows"
  • And so much more

Playing the Matrix lays out the actual physical and metaphysical mechanics of manifestation, including your role in the equation of reality creation, so that you can deliberately orchestrate the changes you most wish to see. Once you begin working with the Universe instead of unwittingly working against it, you will truly astound yourself.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Life Changing

This book and the notes from the Universe have forever changed my life. I have been familiar with the law of attraction for many years but was never inspired to apply it to my life the way I am now. Playing the Matrix has helped me remove my focus from hows and details, to instead focus on the general vision for my life allowing the Universe to fill in the rest. I am sharing this lovely book with everyone I know. Thank You with All My Heart 💜🙏

Want to like this but...

I love the overall principles that Mike is talking about in his book, however his style of narrating and his vocal intonations are quite annoying and tough for me to listen to. I can tell he is passionate about what he’s talking about, but the way he speaks seems to be like he’s talking to a three-year-old and at the same time he is difficult to follow. Perhaps the book is a better one to read rather than listen to. Overall if you all are already into New Age/manifesting/spiritual books you will most likely know all of the principles already that he discusses.

Listened Twice!

I loved this book so much that I listened to it twice, back to back AND I ordered the hardcover book! Lol This was my first experience with Mike Dooley, and I was so impressed and empowered by his teaching. I was already familiar with the concept of LOA, but Mike presents it in a way that really resonates with me. I highly recommend this book!

Mike Dooley is one of these greats.

This book gives perspectives about life that are super simple. Why? Because they really are.

Promises the world

I loved how Mike presented this audiobook, he has so much character in his voice, a wonderful speaker. The book on the other hand is mixed. It starts off strong then gets incredibly repetitive. I found it hard to follow his teachings without his 'chart' and 'figures' that he keeps referring to in the physical book. This is basic LOA stuff, nothing new, nothing he hasn't said before, great for a newbie.

Mike has done it again.

This is probably the best so far. If you are stuck this may be the answer to how to get unstuck.
Mikes wit and enthusiasm is as always evident.

Wonderful book.

THE roadmap for getting where you want in life

As always, Mike Dooley goes above and beyond with this book. As with his other books he helps you understand the mindset & thoughts that you need to have and what you need to do to get where you have always wanted to be in life. He really breaks the mechanics of our part in getting what we want out of life. Great book. I highly recommend!

The next level of manifesting

I love Mike Dooly. I listen to all his books and for me he is the most real, humble, relatable and helpful authors I have come across.

This audio, I believe, will give me all that I need to create the life I aspire to, while creating happiness now. Thank you Mike.

The author brings things book to life!

I've been a fan of Mike Dooley for a while now, and have read a lot of his books. This is the first audiobook of his I've listened to, and he brings his theories and teachings to life in a way that's hard to convey in the written word.! Not only has his belief system proved itself to be true in his own life time and time again ("thoughts become things"), but you can hear the sheer joy and delight that he has for life in every word that he speaks. Lots of good advice on how to "play the Matrix" and create the life of your dreams, and all told in an endearingly open, honest and humorous way that really brings home the message. Tallyho!

Nice

Yet another self help book but it also contains a number of different perspectives that help you move forward with creating the life of your dreams. A good investment. Recommended!

Happiness, yes our happiness!!

Loved Mike's message. Life-affirming!! The beginning was a bit tricky to get into the book...BUT then it continued to get better and better like hiking up a mountain to finally tech the summit view.
Well written, humour and stories.
Thank you Mike.

Do yourself a favour...GET THIS BOOK!

I loved this book so much I ordered myself a paperback copy so I could focus my attention on the activities in the book. Mikes enthusiasm while reading really made this book so much more enjoyable. If you're a fan of his previous work you will love this! And if you've never read his stuff - you'll want to after listening to this. (Rate 10 stars if I could!)
