Well known authors and speakers Ariel and Shya Kane continue to discover and define relationships in their new book How to Have A Match Made in Heaven: A Transformational Approach to Dating, Relating, and Marriage. Relationship coaches for more than twenty years they have succeeded in guiding many individuals and couples toward effective communication and personal transformation. How to Have A Match Made in Heaven not only shares many of these sessions in print but also points the reader to the authors' website, where videos of the actual conversations can be viewed. This unique approach, designed to illustrate the insights and break-through moments of individuals and couples, presents real and practical ways for the reader to have their own transformational moments. Based on the Three Principles of Instantaneous Transformation, as outlined in Working on Yourself Doesn't Work and the award-winning How to Create a Magical Relationship, this new book moves relationships into a new and satisfying level, where couples realize that judgment, resentment, or blame can be overcome by simply living in the moment. Ridding oneself of the need to change yourself or others can be, and often is, a transformational moment leading to positive, powerful changes in one's relationships. In Match Made in Heaven, you will meet ordinary, everyday people, in all walks of life, who face the same concerns and fears that we all face, especially the fear that they will not have a happy, committed relationship with another person. But as they start to grasp the meaning of the Three Principles of Instantaneous Transformation they begin to understand that if they just experience life from moment to moment, the obstacles and fears that surround them often disappear, leaving them to view their world in a fresh, vibrant, and exciting new way. This unique book includes links to companion streaming videos and audios of the Kanes working with clients. These mini-sessions allow you to feel like you are right there having a direct experience of those aha moments when a person's life transforms in an instant.

No matter how many times I read this book, I uncover more amazing insights…

I’ve read this book three times now. The first time, I was single and had the thought “this isn’t for me, I’m not in a relationship.” But, much to my surprise, the book contained many insights into how to have a wonderful relationship with myself. I felt something within me relax, and I saw how hard I was on myself, and how unkind my thoughts were. It was quite powerful to develop awareness of those thoughts and see how they didn’t have to control me (or influence me) anymore. The next time I read the book, about a year later, I was dating someone and I really, really wanted it to be a match made in heaven. The book again provided brilliant insights – new things popped out at me that I hadn’t noticed in the first reading. I saw how desperately I was trying to force a relationship to exist, and how I was not being honest with myself, or the person I was dating, but instead was manipulating my behavior to achieve an outcome. I took the information in the book to heart, and saw the importance of honesty in all aspects. Ultimately, I stopped dating the person because it became very clear that we were going in different directions with our lives, and it was not a good fit.
A must read!!!

How to Have A Match Made in Heaven: A Transformational Approach to Dating, Relating, and Marriage By Ariel and Shya Kane is a must read for anyone wanting to have more intimacy, fun, understanding and connection in their relationships. This book has helped me to transform all of my relationships especially those with family, co workers, clients and most of all with myself. The best part is that since reading this book a couple of challenging relationships, one at work and one with a close family member have completely transformed. I have been able to see things from the others point of view for the first time and to really listen to what they are saying instead of feeling criticized and getting defensive. We now can work and relate with each other in ways that were just not possible before. Life is easier, happier and much more fun! Thank you so much to the Kane’s for this wonderful and insightful book.

I love this book. I have known about Ariel & Shya Kane as teachers and practitioners of true awareness – the complete and total non-judgmental seeing of what is. Magically, this book not only demonstrates the practice of awareness by gently illuminating the behaviors and ah-ha moments of their individual clients in each chapter, it also transmits the practice of awareness to the reader when they simply follow along. Things just start to feel more clear and still and alive. And, while many will wholeheartedly relate to the individual stories contained in this book, the overarching impact of this book is the beautiful teaching of not being hard on oneself (and not on anyone else either). Allowing oneself to be, without judgment, seems so simple and yet many of us struggle. But as Ariel & Shya gently and lovingly explored the unseen behaviors of individual clients, and demonstrated the power of simply seeing these behaviors as a neutral observer, something inside me began to relax and I became aware of my own behaviors that conflict with leading a full life.
This book will open your heart!

Ariel & Shya Kane’s book “How to Have a Match Made in Heaven” is genius! I love the diverse collection of real-life interactions with participants that everyone can recognize in relationships. Whether you’re single or married or somewhere in between, there is something here for everyone. After reading this book, I realize that there is no place that is ‘better to get to’ (whether in a relationship or not). This is seemingly a paradox because we are culturally steeped in the belief that we always have to get to the next level or advance to the next stage. This book has allowed me to relax and be okay in my own skin, which in this day and age is not a very commonplace occurrence. It is OK to give myself a break! If I can even go to another level here, the authors have actually taken Enlightenment (which is widely considered only to be in the domain of ascetics or those who have renounced worldly aspirations) and made it accessible to all the rest of us: you and me, living in the real world dealing with all the complexities of the modern world. That is the beauty of their work and this book.
Fun and Informative

It’s a wonderful book! I enjoyed reading it, and found myself connecting with the stories from real people’s lives. I’ve noticed since reading it I feel more relaxed in myself. I’m more available to others. I chose to read the book in its entirety first and then relive it by watching the accompanying videos all at once. It was so much fun! It’s also a good book to simply open to a random page and read what’s on it. I’ve done that with the Kanes’ other books and it’s always a treat. I don’t hold on to many books after I read them, but this one’s definitely a keeper!
This is the Real Deal

“How to Have A Match Made in Heaven” presents profound yet practical ideas about relating in a clear and honest approach. The pages seem to come alive with individual true life stories that constantly expose my preconceived notions about what I use to think made a relationship work, whether I was aware of these engrained ideas or not. The concepts in the book appear like a breath of fresh air; they are simple and understandable, yet deep and lasting. One idea that stood out for me was how I am 100% responsible for all my relationships (whether with myself, while dating, or in a marriage) and in essence, 100% responsible for my life. In the past, I played more of a give-and-take role in my relationships, playing “victim” whenever it fit, but the idea of being 100% responsible as the Kanes’ describe is freeing and empowering. This is one of the many lifelong truths in the book that came as an “A-ha!” moment. Ariel and Shya Kane’s relationship with each other is also a living example of a true match made in heaven.

This revolutionary book has produced a profound shift in my life. My relationship with my husband has blossomed – we are more in love now than ever before. With their sweet and compassionate wisdom, Ariel & Shya Kane have written a masterpiece and include streaming videos of them working with their clients. This book is a powerful read and is enforced with a visual experience. I got goose-bumps seeing people’s lives transform before my eyes. I transformed along with their clients! My husband is happy, I am happy – it’s amazing! It’s the best relationship book I’ve ever experienced. Revolutionary is the perfect word to describe this book. There is nothing else like it or compares to it.
