This was a little gem of a meditation for kids. My grandkids love these and I always listen to them first. This one is definitely a keeper. I can't wait until they get to listen to it. This book says for 5-7 year olds but I think it could go up a little older. I think the length is good too. Rod Johnson had a pleasant voice.

Affirmations, Meditation, & Hypnosis is exactly what it says. It is full of positive affirmations for abundance in all aspects. Positive affirmations work. Next what I like about this audiobook is that you can meditate to these affirmations. I love that you can also listen to this book while falling asleep and use it as a hypnosis for relaxation and restfulness. I think the ambient, almost vibrational music does this. This audiobook is a total win. You just can't go wrong with it.

Daniel James Lewis's voice is calming and relaxing. He speaks clearly with a nice tone. He's perfect for this audiobook.

Inside each of us are seven major energy centers that hold the key to our happiness, sense of ease, and well-being. Research on chakras dates back thousands of years across numerous spiritual traditions. Acupuncture, yoga, reiki, crystals, essential oils, and meditation are among the many methods used to awaken and balance chakras.

Chakra Healing was an excellent overview of the chakra system and the meanings of each one. It tells you each correlating color as well as the part of the body or areas of the body that each chakra affects. It also further gives a good meditation on each one and tells you which crystals to use, if you use crystals. Also, and I think this is most important, this audiobook explains the actual meaning and origin of the chakras and kundalini in an easy to understand way.

For me this was more than a beginner's guide. It was a pretty comprehensive guide. I'm sure there's a lot more to learn but this audiobook taught me some things I didn't know. Definitely recommended.

Michelle Brown Miller's narration was outstanding. She spoke clearly and in a soft voice. She was easy on my ears and very pleasant.

I love this guided meditation. Trains actually do put me to sleep as I grew up around them with my dad working for the railroad his entire life. I've listened to this for several nights now and it works like a charm. This was the most clever idea for a meditation. It's a must have.

This is a basic book on what wicca is and what it isn't. It was good and informative and explains what holidays are celebrated including how they are celebrated. For example handfasting as a way of joining with a partner without marriage. Wiccans use the spelling magick instead of magic. I have a few friends that practice wicca and it fascinates me to learn how they believe. I like the way this book lets you know to check before picking up rocks, feathers, etc. as well as safety during candle burning. Even though this is a beginner's book, it's a good overview.

The narration by Laura Harris was very well done. She spoke very clearly and had a nice pleasant tone.

Hygge living sounds like a good way to be. This audiobook explains what it means to live hygge. It's maintaining space and flow which seems similar to feng shui only the Danish version. It's different though in a way. it's also about tidying up and de-cluttering. It may be helpful to just not let clutter happen. Overall this was a very nice presentation about living life hygge.

Matyas J did a very nice job narrating. He had a positive, happy voice which fit well with the audiobook.

Does your child love listening to Bible stories? Perhaps they find them little dull and predictable? The Boy and the Battle is a re-imagining of the epic battle between the boy David and the giant, Goliath. When listening to this story, children will be able to picture the scene, perhaps imagine themselves as David and understand that this is a real story, about a real child, just like them.

The Boy and the Battle was a nice listen for any family. This has good Christian values and I would love for my grandchildren to hear it. I remember growing up and on Sundays watching Davey and Goliath. This would be a good tool to use in Sunday school or Bible study. I think the age range could be expanded.

Great narration by Rod johnson. He had a deep voice with good inflections.

In Nature, Emerson put forth the foundation of transcendentalism, a belief system that espouses a non-traditional appreciation of nature. Transcendentalism suggests that the divine, or God, suffuses nature, and suggests that reality can be understood by studying nature. Self Reliance contains the most thorough statement of one of Emerson's recurrent themes: the need for each individual to avoid conformity and false consistency, and follow their own instincts and ideas.

These essays couldn't be more relavent in this day and age. I see that many people have completely lost touch with nature and we can't survive as humans without it. It makes me think of the saying 'if a tree falls in a forest...'. I have an old, old copy of Ralph Waldo Emerson's Self reliance and Other Essays but I loved hearing the spoken word. And Thoreau's work was equally as priceless. This was an excellent listen.

Christopher Preece's narration fit the audiobook very well. He spoke with sincerity and was easy to understand. This was an excellent book for anyone who wants to listen rather than read.

The Great Book of 1990'a Trivia was a walk down memory lane. The facts from the 90's were interesting to hear again. Some things I had actually forgotten about. Each chapter was a different year through the decade and I enjoyed the quiz at the end of each one. I averaged about 7 or 8 right answers of the questions asked. It was fun. It was a fun decade. Now I'm ready for trivia night.

Scott miller's narration fits this type of audiobook perfectly. He has a voice that sounds like a radio announcer.
