    Finding the Keys to Living Happily Ever After One of the things

    Finding the Keys to Living Happily Ever After

    One of the things I love most about Bruce Lipton is the fearless way he shares intimate details about his life, with such joy and contagious zest for life that one feels one's spirits lifting even when hearing tales of past traumatic events. What makes Lipton's new book, "The Honeymoon Effect" such a treasure is how Lipton shares his passion for understanding the underlying biology of our interpersonal chemistry side-by-side with autobiographical accounts of what's worked and what's not worked in his relationships in the past. 

    Would you believe that the cascade of chemicals that drive love can be unleashed not just by falling in love with a person, but also by falling in love with a project or idea? Lipton assures us this is so, since "wherever there is passion, not far behind are the potent chemical brews that motivate us to pursue the objects of our desire." As an author who once made the mistake of filling the bathtub while working on a chapter of my book, "Karen Kimball and the Dream Weaver's Web," this is something I definitely relate to.

    As it turns out, the keys to living happily ever after with one's true love are found within. Lipton explains through tales from his own relationship lessons in the past why it's not enough to simply find the man or woman of our dreams. People subconsciously seek familiar patterns from the past, so unless we address underlying psychological issues in ourselves, relationships will only ever last until the initial bursts of love endorphins wear off. 

    Readers seeking a how-to book might want to dive into chapter four, "Four Minds Don't Think Alike," to get to the heart of weird ways we so often find our partner knows just how to push our buttons at the point we know 'the honeymoon is over.' Lipton explains that what is actually happening when the love of our life is no longer acting all that loving is that they are expressing their subconscious mind, with all of its programming instilled in us going all the way back to childhood... and before that, into the womb. Our subconscious mind soaked up a great deal of our environment in the form of cascades of chemicals running through our bodies, in such ways that sensitize us to particular repetitive patterns of emotional patterns around us. Fortunately, by becoming mindful, we can reprogram our subconscious mind, so we are compatible with the kind of partners we'd most like to live happily ever after with. Only through such reprogramming can we hope to break free of negative relationship patterns. 

    The Honeymoon Effect is an inspirational book containing a real-life successful love story, together with lots of recent research in the fields of biology and psychology... and some wonderful tips on how you can become more mindful and successful in love and life. Highly recommended!
