When you want to feel more love you can consciously do it by actively releasing the hormone oxytocin into your brain. Known as the “bonding” chemical, oxytocin is really good for you. According to love master Dr. John Gray, women need to constantly rebuild their “oxytocin” levels. Oxytocin is the bonding hormone essential for women in their ability to give and receive love.
Taking time for mani-pedi’s, getting your hair done, receiving massages, taking long, warm bubble baths, listening to music, dancing, walking in nature, a quiet cup of tea, a perfect piece of chocolate (or your favorite treat)….these are a few ways to add pleasure to your daily life that also rebuild oxytocin.
Oxytocin can be generated lots of ways and the more you have the better you will feel. Not surprisingly, it plays a big role in producing orgasms.
Stress is one of the main reasons we become depleted in oxytocin so taking simple steps to rebuild it is necessary to maintain a happy, healthy lifestyle.
It’s well known that a simple hug, gazing into the eyes of someone you care about or petting your dog or cat will also boost your oxytocin level. And, going shopping also does the trick. Even if you don’t buy anything, just looking and touching beautiful items makes a difference.

My personal “pleasure recipe” includes a daily bath with aromatherapy, an early morning walk with my husband, and one-on-one time with my cat Felix. If I have a particularly stressful day, I have a special CD of favorite dance tunes that I crank up in my office and I dance and sing (all by myself) until I feel the endorphins surging through me.
If consciously adding pleasure to your daily life doesn’t come naturally to you, I would suggest a little experiment: For the next 7 days, decide to add at least 15-20 minutes of pleasure…all for you. By taking the time to add pleasure to your life you will be calmer, happier, and more receptive to enjoying and attracting love at every level.
And, as you create your To-Do list, put YOU on the top of that list, then let me know what happens!
Remember what you put your attention on grows. Add more pleasure and oxytocin to your brain and your life to add more love on every level.
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
