Lipton stresses the importance of "trusting our vibes". I liked how he gave examples from his own life. In one chapter he tells how he had a bad feeling about a "predator" neighbor while living on Barbados. When a job transfer came through to another island Lipton was relieved - he'd get away from that neighbor once and for all! He was surprised when the neighbor volunteered to help him move. After getting assistance loading his belongings from his new friend, Lipton thought to himself "maybe this guy wasn't so bad after all" as he left on a plane trip. When Lipton returned he found his neighbor had cancelled Lipton's move with the shipping company, and had stolen all of Lipton's household goods! "The loss of all my possessions was a painful lesson for me about the importance of trusting `bad vibes' and `good vibes'," Lipton writes.
Most of the examples Lipton gives in his book are related to romantic relationships. "When it comes to partners, there are suddenly four instead of two minds involved," he writes. "And these two extra subconscious minds can wreak havoc on Happily-Ever-After relationships." The Honeymoon Effect is full of strategies to deprogram those unhealthy messages that come from our subconscious minds.
While I valued Lipton's insights, I suspect the average reader will find it difficult to change the programming of his or her subconscious just by reading the book. Lipton encourages readers to followup on his suggestions. "There is no one tool that fits all people," he says. "If one of the processes listed in the appendix doesn't work, don't give up; try another one!" he adds. I think the Honeymoon Effect is best used as a guide for the reader to explore different healing methods.
The book ends on a hopeful note - we CAN change the programming of our subconscious minds. "By manifesting the life you choose, not the life you were programmed by your family to lead, you can have it all," Lipton writes. The Honeymoon Effect reminded me of how those messages I received in childhood still affect me today, and encouraged me to continue to work on changing those thoughts.
I received a complementary copy of this book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
Bruce, better than any one else I have ever known, makes Science seem like common sense, and allows us to see ourselves with a dose of self directed humor. Apparently it is important to understand the four minds involved in every couple. Who Knew? You will read this book again and again, just for the smiles and deeper insights. Yes, Heaven on Earth is possible. It starts with understanding and grows with practice.
I know I am a better partner today, even though I am happy and single!
His writing is so personal, I feel like I'm sitting in his living room as he revels me/us with his tales. He is genuine and I am learning so much!
Perfect book that does marry science and Spirit, Heaven on Earth.
At first glance, it is surprising to find the term "science" in the otherwise rhapsodic title of Bruce Lipton's new book. That is, until one realizes that the rightful place for this brilliantly imaginative scientist and author is among the "metaphysical" poets of the 17th century English renaissance like John Donne. What they have in common in their appeal to us is a peculiarly witty way of using metaphor that unites thought and feeling, the "metaphysical conceit" that "links two apparently unrelated fields or subjects in an unusual and surprising conjunction of ideas." Donne, for example, famously compared himself as lover to the travelling arm of a compass, always with his eye on the woman who stood fixed at the center of his regard even as he moved around her, and to that same arm leaning ever more closely toward her the further his distance from her increased.
With even greater precision, Dr. Lipton likens the ideal love relationship he now experiences with his life partner, Margaret, to atoms of "noble gases" so perfectly balanced around their own nuclear centers, so complete in themselves, that they bond only when luminously excited by photons that reach them like epiphanies from beams of light and carry them beyond themselves into one another's ecstatic embrace. Drawn to one another not by codependent need (a deficiency of electrons at the outer ring) but rather by their intersecting surplus outflows of photon radiance, they not only excite one another but amplify one another's light, potentially to laser intensity.
No one reading such a comparison--"my love is like a noble gas"--would accuse Bruce of sentimentality. And yet that's the point. As T.S. Eliot observed at the beginning of the modern era, what our culture now suffers from is a "dissociation of sensibility," the separation of thought and feeling. As a consequence, thought has degenerated into cold abstraction and feeling into mere sentimentality. Bruce Lipton's genius is his ability to heal this split, to make astute scientific observation and the insights it yields about our human condition juicy. He puts his magnifying glass on eros, the life force itself, so we can see it working at microscopic levels, attracting all that lives into ever expanding bonds of fruitful interconnectedness, reciprocity, and creative emergence. And then he zooms us to where this force manifests as conscious human love and offers us the hopeful evolutionary prospect of a conscious planetary community, an authentic global "we" in which the fully individuated uniqueness of the participants is never lost, but the significance of each is vastly increased in the synergistic embrace of an ever-widening and harmonious wholeness that is the future we can choose--heaven on earth.

First off, don't let the title scare you. This book is much deeper than the cover alludes to, and that is hugely appreciated.
The Honeymoon Effect is described as: "A state of bliss, passion, energy, and health resulting from a huge love. Your life is so beautiful that you can't wait to get up to start a new day and thank the Universe that you are alive." Oh my goodness, doesn't that sound appealing?!? This book truly is for more than looking for a healthy life partnership.
Yes, this is a relationship book. And although much of it is aimed at the love story of my life, I also gained insight into my friend and work relationships. As with many things, Rumi's included advice is a good touchstone: "Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."
What I appreciate about this book is that although Rumi's words are indeed true, the reader is never burdened with carrying the weight of a relationship single-handedly. This book helps you see how to align yourself with and create truly healthy interactions, how to spot the ones to avoid, and how to maintain yourself in the ones you may not be able to escape.
The concepts of biology, quantum physics, chemicals/hormones, conscious/subconscious minds, and chemical bonding as an example for relationships are important aspects of understanding this Honeymoon Effect. Whoa, don't panic! The author, in a magnificent feat of teaching, somehow explains each in their own chapter in a way that is very flowing, incredibly easy to read, and completely understandable on a personal and daily level. Who knew?!?
Doesn't "Our Drive to Bond," "Good Vibrations," "Love Potions," "Four Minds Don't Think Alike," and "Noble Gases: Spreading Peace, love, and Tulsi Tea" sound...well, not like academics? Even maybe intriguing, and fun? They are!
Two things personally rose to the top for me in this book: the author's sharing of a toxic relationship, and some quantum physics language I learned.
First, this book reinforced that it is okay for me to acknowledge toxicity, that it exists. That because I can pour much love and goodness into such a relationship with a person is not enough of a reason to do so. That perhaps I alone can not fix it. To not talk myself out of or rationalize visceral reactions I may receive. That I am not making them up or overreacting, that predators do exist. And that they by their nature search us out.
I was focusing on positive thinking, which meant I didn't want to think about or acknowledge the reality of human predators. I was also trying to focus on forgiveness.... "He wasn't such a bad [person] after all," my rational mind was telling me. All the while, my still erratically behaving heart wanted to escape! ....We override our feelings when our rational minds focus on words, especially when the're spoken by silver-tongued swindlers.... (p. 27-28, Kindle version)
Now when I encounter such people, I am much kinder to myself. And, if I'm to be honest, I'm much kinder to them because I don't need to be so angry or protective with my energy. I'm much more able to detach in their presence, keep myself safe, see the situation with open eyes, and act accordingly.
Secondly (and this one makes me laugh out loud!), I am having such fun with the quantum physics language that I learned! It's not necessary for understanding the book, don't worry--it's just a quirk of mine.
Who knew there's a name for when my energy interacts with another's--that's called entanglement. My mind jumps immediately to my spouse, and that's just fun on many levels! Those of you who have been married for a short time are likely thinking a thing, and believe me that counts. But those of you who have been married longer are laughing even harder at the depth of what that covers, aren't you?!? Entanglement makes me love the inherent emotional intimacy, especially when I think of my spouse. The word also makes me see my friend, acquaintance, and work relationships in a new light, and I am much more discriminating and aware of where and why I choose to place my energy. Another yay!
However, my favorite newly-learned quantum physics language is interference. Superb examples of dropped stones in a pond make this explanation crystal clear and is reason alone to read this book. Basically any time there is entanglement there is interference, that's all. The bottom line is that good vibes are constructive interference, and bad vibes are destructive interference.
Good news Honey, I'm "constructive interference!"
I shared this with my husband, and I can't even tell you how much laughter and mileage we are together getting out of this!
The Honeymoon Effect is a fantastic read, I was pleasantly surprised by its depth, and it is easy to follow. Anyone who is interested in any type of personal growth, specifically of the self both alone and in relation to others, will gain something from reading this book. I was fairly skeptical when I began, yet now I consider this book a must-read.
