    Overall

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the gentle coaxing to awaken. I'd not thought of myself as asleep, but only as I awaken do I recognize my long slumber. I listen to this tape nightly on my ipod as I fall asleep. I am amazed at the power of suggestion. My brain has been responding and leading the way with new thoughts, ideas, emotions, ambitions and responses. Its difficult to describe, but I have begun to breathe deliberately during the day, to be more 'present' with my husband and with my son, to find compassion for my ex and (some) forgiveness for him, but also to honestly consider my role in all the high conflict. I've had an odd, lingering and growing notion that I should fast- that I will benefit greatly from a fast- emotionally, mentally, spiritually, physically. I'm not particularly interested, but it's becoming clear that my interest will be won over by what my body and mind have determined is important for purge and to make change. Another thing that occurred to me while breathing is that I should strive to be encouraging and positive to others- less judgemental and critical. I was very very sadden by that awareness. It made me review much of my life and many of my relationships. As if I were being directed by a personal tutor/mentor. Rather, I've simply begun to listen and for once, to really try and hear. This book has been a most powerful tool. Wow, how could I have possibly known it would change me so. Thank you~
