In 2015, Mike Dooley was in Norway speaking about The Law of Attraction, how thoughts become things, and the way he manifested his dream life. He says he now lives an incredible life that he never knew was within his reach.
Mike Dooley is a New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and entrepreneur in the philosophical New Thought movement. His teachings contain the premise that our “thoughts become things,” an expression he made popular in Rhonda Byrne’s book and video documentary on the Law of Attraction, The Secret.

The Law of Attraction
As a young child Mike studied this universal law and his quest was to understand our origin, essence and purpose here on earth. He says The Law of Attraction is not just an attitude or something to do when you want to bring something into your life, it rides upon our spiritual nature. We are eternal beings, the eyes and ears of God, he says. We can change the things we aren’t pleased with in our lives and the change agent is our thoughts.
Thoughts become things
As a teenager, Mike was in competitive sports and he had already read many books on the power of thoughts and creative visualization. He got his first taste of holding images in his mind and living them out. We are still dealing with the seemingly uncontradictable body of evidence that is our lives, which tells us life is happening to us and that we are mere pawns. Mike explains that this is not true, it is something we’ve been told growing up and it is just diminishing our power. If we continue to practice and work on our thoughts, we will be able to create the life we want for ourselves, he says.
Manifesting isn’t the only game in the jungle of time and space
Mike says we are all fast manifesters through The Law of Attraction because we are inclined to succeed. As you get going and you have the things you want, love, peacefulness, serenity and silence become important and exciting goals too. These things are not so measurable through manifestations. You end up not moving beyond manifesting, but you do it in concert with a full creator’s palette.
Probabilities and likelihoods
The probability is extreme that Mike will continue being a teacher in this lifetime. The possibilities are infinite that he might become a basketball player and who knows what. Anything is possible, he explains, but what is likely and probable? We go from a very wide range to a narrow one which still has infinite possibilities within its range. Teaching excites and thrills him more than being a basketball player or other vocations. You need to tune into what’s in your heart, find out what you like and what you want to do. What would you like to be good at? Follow your own dream and make use of The Law of Attraction.
Mike Dooley’s Matrix
There are two steps for all manifestations, Mike explains. The first step is to define what you want in terms of the end result. Step two is to take action and show up. His matrix is a grid that shows how you ideally can define what you want. The underlying gist of his matrix is happiness. You can also prioritize abundance, health, relationships, and career. There are several other columns that appear in his matrix in order to define end results in those areas as well. His matrix shows the flow of manifestation as a tool to get clear on what you want and to define it in ways where you’re not attached to the outcome. Let loose and let the universe show you how your bliss will come. It might blow your mind and be the last thing you thought it would be!
