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 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!

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.

Life changing!

Thanks Mike.

The very moment I wrote down what I wanted… It appeared within five minutes.

This was no accident, by actually doing the practices in this book most days, my thoughts became things.

I am consciously competent in manifesting now.

Thanks again Mike, words can’t explain my gratitude.

A great book, full of humour and knowledge.

Awonderful take on life and one that is ready to subscribe to. Mike Dooley, the author, gives a reflection of his life's experience and demonstrates how any of us can change the direction of our lives or enhance out lives, with a relatively simple change in how we think. This is knowledge I have understood for some time but in this book, the way it is structured and presented, the penny has dropped and I now see it in a way that I can apply it to my own life. Well narrated, this book is for everyone, even if you don't know it yet!

Brilliant inspiring theme!

Really enjoyed this book, i laughed, agreed, pondered, absorbed & reflected! Didn’t want it to end! Mike Dooley truly is inspirational, he relates as you and me not some big name on the ‘new age’ circuit. He describes the matrix in a sensible & understandable manner enabling anyone to ‘get it’! Please keep writing Mike you are changing perceptions & enhancing lives.

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.

Unfortunately not for me

We all need different things to help us on our individual journeys and this was not for me.

Very Good Book on attracting Prosperity and becoming who you want

I have read many books on this subject. But this is one of the best. He gives you exercises and practical ways to implement what he is teaching. He doesn’t just spout a lot of theories with no way to implement them. He shows you how to do it and also gives examples of how he did these exercises years ago, tells you what he wrote. This really helps.
What I like about Mike is that he is honest about his own Journey and he really understands the law of attraction. He understands the pitfalls and tells you about them. It is much more than wanting something then magically it’s there, there are rules which some authors don’t know about or ignore. Mike really understands these rules because he’s become victim of the pitfalls himself which he tells you about early on in the book.
He thoroughly understands this law and what you need to do to make it happen for you. He is a practical teacher that guides you through step by step. PDF downloads come with this audiobook which is great. His is one of the best books on the subject. Yes a large portion of this law I already knew, especially the pitfalls of manifestation. He puts it in simple modern day terms with exercises to start your journey and define what you want and how to make it work for you.
My favourite books on Prosperity are actually from the 1920’s and 1960’s. Two specific Authors who until now had the best books on manifesting with the most concise understanding of this subject. Playing the Matrix is on Par with these books. Which really is saying something.
He is a great narrator making this book fun and easy to understand. His writing is very good too, engaging the reader and sucking you into this subject. Making this a very easy to understand, fun listening experience.

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!)

worth reading

Good read. Narrated well by the author, who is easily and clearly heard. The author is passionate about this topic and is still grounded.
