Author Of Relationship Magic

An Interview with Guy Finley

1. Your previous books (including The Secret of Letting Go and The Secret of Your Immortal Self) have been focused on the individual. What inspired you to write your latest release, Relationship Magic?

Each of my books expresses the natural evolution of my own spiritual work, which is a little like a life-long climb up a "mountain" that, with each step higher, offers more and more soul-stirring views of one's own celestial possibilities. So, in a way, Relationship Magic is the culmination of my work to date. It's designed to help the reader realize two great truths at once: that love is a timeless journey that all of us are on, and letting go is how we walk this path to inner perfection...and arrive, all at the same time.

2. Does the book refer only to romantic love? Or can we use the knowledge in Relationship Magic to help us bolster our everyday relationships as well?

Relationship Magic covers the finest aspects of our relationships with one another, from the smallest to the largest possible lesson they bring into our lives; it is designed to help the reader see into and through everything that may be limiting his or her love life, so that they can "let go and watch love grow." These important lessons are easily applied to a life-long partner, a brand new lover, family, friends, and even the "slower-than-molasses" supermarket cashier. The real "magic" in this book is that it reveals how we can use all of our relationships to make us better lovers, better friends, and better people...all through a new kind of self-understanding that only love can make possible.

3. You have been married to your wife Patricia for over forty years. What do you think has been most key in making your marriage a lasting one?

My wife, Patricia, and I have walked together on a life-long journey of self-discovery. She is my "mirror," and I am hers; through each other we are given to see and learn lessons about ourselves that can't be revealed, let alone integrated (into our lives) in any other way. If I were to summarize the overriding principle whose power has helped us to perfect our marriage it would be this: whatever the dispute, the temporary conflict born of differing opinions, there can only be one real and lasting solution: "let Love be the answer." We've learned to see that (our) love for one another is more important than who "wins" or who "loses" a fight...even if that means one—or both—of us have to let go of being "right."

4. Is any previous work or knowledge required to use the tips and techniques in Relationship Magic?

There are only two things required of those who want to learn the heart-healing truths hidden throughout the pages of Relationship Magic. First, they must feel the need for a higher kind of love that can't be turned into its (unloving) opposite at the drop of a hat. And second, for the sake of knowing and living from this order of unconditional love, they must be willing to see the parts of themselves that are standing in the way of its birth. Fulfilling these two conditions is the same as inviting love to set us free.

5. What do you hope your readers will take away from Relationship Magic?

We have all heard the beautiful expression, "With love, all things are possible." My one hope for this book is that those who read it can see and, more importantly, feel that this idea is more than just some comforting sentiment meant to lend us hope in the midst of a troubled time with our partner. With love, nothing is impossible. This is a great and forgotten truth that, once remembered, made conscious, and individually actualized, sets us free from the pain of what is past, even as it opens the door to a bright new future.
