Difficult

Because the two parts are not separated it is difficult to get the full benefit of the recording. The first part is for short rests and once it gets you to sleep, it will wake you up again. Difficult to find your way to the second, longer recording, which is suppose to keep you asleep for the entire night. Would have been much more helpful if each part had been a separate download.

Excellent "sleeping pill"

I am more of a chronic night owl than an insomniac, and I've tried many, many types of solutions that might help me unwind, fall asleep and keep on a schedule. I must say, this audio is amazing! Nothing I've tried has ever worked so well. I've had it a few weeks and have yet to make it all the way through without falling asleep! Even if I awaken in the night it will put me back to sleep. The more I listen to it the better it seems to work as I can actually "see" the visualizations now. The two speakers accents don't bother me, I like them in fact.

very peaceful and relaxing

I like both the meditation very much, especially the last one it really helps me to calm down and enjoy the peaceful scenery that's offered.
the sounds are all very life like and make you go to another world for a little while.

So so

One technical issue that bugs me is that the two programs are not separately indexed / titled, so you can't easily choose to listen to just one.

Another bother: I'm a little picky, I know, but their accent and the way they pronounce "meditative" distracts me and makes it hard for me to relax.

I have a few spell mediation books downloaded and I find this one is the most effective. I only listen to the second part, buy it will send me to sleep more often than not.

Helps put me to sleep.

I like this guided meditation mostly because it is at
the beach and the sound of the waves relaxes me.

An incredible journey every night

I am not one of these people who turn to books etc to try to help me to sleep. The first one of these types of audio books that I tried was a waste of time - please don't tell me to go to sleep, I hate being told what to do.

This book is incredible - it does seem like a waste of money for me though as I have yet to hear beyond the first 10 minutes... I am always asleep well before then.. My daughter overheard the book and was talking about the woman who talks on it ... what woman? I asked.... what island? ... I had never heard a woman on there - I had to fast forward to see what she meant.

This audio track has taught me how to relax my body as well as my mind and I can be asleep within minutes of turning it on. I enjoy listening to Richard Latham and the background "music" is so effective.

A definite first class choice for me

Good to get off to sleep

This audio book contains two meditations, the first is about 20 mins and can be used at any point you want to simply relax fully, the second is 25 mins and is designed to get you off to sleep. I found both to be very useful.

The only trouble with it is that both meditations are in a single chapter and the first meditation wakes you up before the second then starts to get you off to sleep. So if you want to only sleep you have to scroll through to the start of the second mediation to begin.

Perfect meditation!

This is a fantastic meditation if you have trouble sleeping. The narrators both have really soothing voices and guide you into a relaxed state. I don’t think I have ever got to the end as normally asleep before it finishes. This meditation has really helped me sleep better and relax which has really improved my overall health and well-being.

When I need to sleep.........

I've played this three times now at bedtime, and it's worked every time.
Still haven't heard the story - the first relaxation bit puts me out like a light.

Exceptionally fantastic and works!

I absolutely love all this series but this is my top favourite. There's an intro to get you to gently unwind then 2 hypnosis stories. First read by a man the second by a woman. I don't even know what the second story says as each time I'm asleep by the end of the first one! I use this almost daily and have listened to it nearly 1000 times. I would be lost without it. Recommended by NHS stress/sleep clinic.

Only listened a few times so far, but each time I've gone to sleep which was why I was using these, I recommend this cd to anyone.

Happy Bunny

For the last 18 months I have found it difficult to sleep, lots of chatter going on in my brain. I sleep naturally on my own at the beginning of the night then after say 3 hours I wake up and find it difficult to go back to sleep. found this meditation extremely useful. Both narrators voices are very soothing. It is my go to meditation if I want a nap or extra hours of sleep at night.
