Need some oxytocin… NOW...

Don’t we all want to feel good? There are certain chemicals that are produced in our bodies when good things are happening.
.
Dopamine is the most important high-pleasure reward. Mark Turrell describes it like this: “We are dopamine machines”. The desire to have such euphoria motivates as to actually do things that will get us feel that high; bring us pleasure.
.
Serotonin is more subtle, but still ecstasy like chemical. It may also motivate us to take step to feel real good. It brings us heaven-like serenity.
.
Oxytocin, however, is a bonding chemical, which is produced in males and females and it makes us want to physically connect with another and then remain connected. Turrell explains that this is the reason for women to desire cuddles so much 

.
Basically, this is that neurotransmitter (and a hormone) that makes us build relationships with people around us and, especially, romantic partners, through sex, touching, hugging, etc. e.g. through physical closeness in its many forms.
.
Interesting fact; we can begin producing oxytocin after just 20 seconds of hugging a person or an animal! It’s truly a powerful force that binds us with others through our own chemistry.
.
So when making love, we have the whole firework of chemicals going on inside of our brain, and it’s so powerful that it gets encoded into our bodies and memories. The next time we think of it again, we can actually gain some of the amount of those chemicals back. So, indulge it, memorize it and get carried away with it on this upcoming Valentine’s day 

.
And bond with someone today by giving them a long and intentional hug to get their chemical production going and their Soul singing, as we are not just that chemically- powered machines 
 but knowing how our body works is also helpful 

.
And, I love you;)
