I love the accent. His voice is very comforting. I also agree that Audible ruined the sleep cycle by their ending. I also wake up startled to the ending Audible message. Take that out and I'd give it 5 stars.
I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who has wished for help getting to sleep. I have used many meditation and self-hypnosis tapes over the past 15 years with varying degrees of success.
I have certainly not expected anything new and outstanding to come along. But then I kept coming across rave reviews for Glenn Harrold who wrote and recorded this tape. I gave in to hope and purchased it and....it works!
He uses a totally different technique than the others I have heard. Please do use ear phones if you can because you will hear all of the different suggestions and different tones that he combines. He overlays his sentences with other sentences at times. You will see what I mean if you get this. And the music is so easy and unintrusive. His voice is perfect for this kind of tape.
If you have as much trouble as I do sleeping then you will understand my enthusiasm for this. I hope you have the same great results that I have had! Best wishes.
I've used other self-hypnosis relaxation and sleep programs. Like the others, Glenn Harrold's "Deep Sleep Every Night" doesn't seem like it's hypnotizing you when you first listen to it. But, keep using it for a few nights and you will see that each night it takes you off to dreamland more quickly. Pretty soon, you just hear the "one, two, three" and you're gone. Just don't expect miracles on the first listen.
The audio is great and I fall to sleep which is really nice. I am woken up, however, by the Audible.com message at the end therefore defeating the purpose!
I've always had trouble sleeping. Once I started to listen to this I immediately slept better than I had in years. The voice and the music is quite relaxing. I'd definately recommend!
This was the first "hypnosis" audio book I purchased, and I absolutely love it. I fall asleep each and every time I listen to it, and I actually look forward to bedtime now because I know I'll fall asleep quickly. The only complaint I have is the same as a previous reviewers: Audible's own "You've been listening to Audible" at the end of the recording wakes me up every night. Yes, I fall asleep again quickly, but it seems terribly irresponsible of them to mess with a sleep title. I wish I could edit their announcement out.
As with most human behavior, the key to successful change lies in changing the way one thinks. With "Deep Sleep Every Night" I have been able to 1) start going to bed earlier (and feeling good about it); 2) sleep through the night without waking; and 3) start remembering my dreams again. The hyponsis is more like guided mediation, and the instructions and suggestions are ethical and "as advertised." The affect of the hyponsis is to allow "new" thinking to replace ineffectual ideas and self-talk. The information leads to ideas which lead to emotions which lead to beliefs and moves from unconscious to conscious with the behavior change. As with any successful behavior change, the nightly effectiveness and long-term success are entirely up to me. I anticipate that in three weeks I will only need to listen to this on nights of heavy stress. I was a little disappointed with the audio quality, but I have not had a chance to listen to it on headphones as suggested, which I suspect would be even more powerful. I have already started listening to another of his titles and will be buying at least two more within the month.
This audio tape does a great job of putting me to sleep every night. I notice a difference each night when I use it and when I don't. Whenever I am really stressed out, this tape puts me to sleep before I even get half way through.
This disc has spread from my family to everyone I know. We all use it every night, kids from age one to my eighty year old grandmother, and we are all sleeping great every night.
He is in what sounds like an auditorium. At first I thought, This is gonna make me sleep??
But he engages the mind, and the high-quality recording makes him impossible to ignore, and easy to follow. He offers messages that are interesting, and relaxing.
I?m glad I got this recording.
One caveat ... *he* doesn?t do anything to you. There is no magic or miracle in any hypnotic recording, if you don?t engage yourself with it, and believe.
