I agree with the writer from Arizona. This CD could be much better. The concepts are wonderful I would've just liked more clearer guided visualizations with pauses. Doreen Virtue seemed to breeze through the exercises and talk so much that I found it difficult to relax and visualize what she was saying. True, her need to properly enunciate every syllable in every word was distracting and her voice is not the soothest, unfortunately. A more relaxed approach would've been great instead of her reading off her script. I think I'm going to go with the other writer and possibly just make my own tape.
I can't say enough good things about this tape. It never fails to put me to sleep in the evening (and that's a good thing). I rarely use the a.m. side as I never have time in the morning but the p.m. side is just about the best thing that's ever helped me with my chronic insomnia, pain, anxiety, stress, and even nasal congestion.
By the middle of the tape, I'm usually asleep and I feel well rested in the morning (and not wake up intermittently during the night). The only small complaint I have is that this would have been better as a CD because as soon as the tape is over, my tape players make a loud popping sound to stop playing it. Then I wake up, which defeats the purpose of it helping me to fall asleep. But then I do fall asleep immediately and it gives me time to take the headphones off and put my earplugs on. So I guess it's okay.
The other things this tape really helps me with is releasing any stressful interactions I've had with people that day and worries about the next day.
It takes a little bit of thought the first few times I listened to it (to know what to do... sometimes relaxing is harder than being stressed) but now my body knows how to just go along with it without much effort.
What a lifesaver this tape has been in my life specially recently when I've had to take care of health problems with my husband and my cat. It helps me take care of myself to be there for them.
