I haven't heard a meditation this good!

Wow! This meditation is so effective. Between Agapi's soothing voice and the perfect relaxing imagery to truly set your mind at ease, I found myself in such a joyful state after listening. Really needed that! I will definitely be listening to this when I go to sleep tonight. Agapi is truly one of a kind - the real deal. With so much love in her heart!! Highly recommend.

Very effective

At first I felt the narrators accent was a bit cliche, but putting my judgement nature aside soon I fell into the soothing rhythm of her voice. I like that I was able/instructed to get comfortable to move to my sleep position, not lying on my back in a meditative position and falling to sleep, mouth agape. I can’t account for much else as I was in a deep REM sleep before the narration ended and waking from a very pleasurable dream.

My favorite mediation for a perfect sleep!

I love Agapi's work in the field of meditation. She's a master guide for this spiritual journey filled with positivity and gratitude. This journey is an extraordinary gift to us all and fills our hearts with a lasting divine warmth, I am so lucky to have Agapi's voice in my life. I hope you get to experience it yourself. And when you do, sleep will never be the same because you will have discovered the power of centering and presence. Thank you Agapi!

Tending toward peace but yanked back repeatedly

So much to like about this; however, repeated counterproductive directives. Easy, transport I’ve background music, a soothing narrative voice. Overtly good intent. However, if the goal is to let go and focus on gratitude, then let us let it go. The river of gratitude, and the observation of thoughts as leaves flowing away, would be fine, if those thoughts would be allowed to flow away. The narrator repeatedly brings us back to focus on those leaves, those thoughts, that we so much want to let go, but now cannot. Similarly, the encouragement to move further away from the day, yet they continued or repeated reminders about the day, chains us to the day. The next addition, or revision, will take us further with greater focus on the energy of gratitude for a while we recall presently, and that to which we look forward. The guided energy meditation through the body is disjointed with the light from spine through toes and then up to shoulders through hands then head. This seems distracting. Great potential in the next revision. Thank you for this effort.

Appreciate you trying, audible

I appreciate the effort but this stuff does not work. Unless you’re inclined to naturally fall asleep anyway, in which case this would be unnecessary, this stuff just lulls you into a more RELAXED state of skepticism - and once you bust out of it, you’re even less likely to drift off.

Beautiful, soothing voice.

I have such a soft spot for Agapi, or her sister Arianna Huffington, their Greek accents are gorgeous, and their voices are so soothing. Such warmth in Agapi's voice, and the meditation is just perfect for centering yourself.

Horses for courses

This is probably one of the better meditations in this bunch of you are well and give it a chance. I liked the idea of meditation through gratitude, again a different approach to the others in the collection and I loved the imagery. If it hadn't focused so much on being grateful for your body I would have loved it but the script is not so good for those who want to be mentally transported somewhere else.
