I bought several self hypnosis CDs to help me get some sleep. This is the best one I've tried. Linda's voice is very calming and this CD has helped me get to sleep even though I have not listened to it every night. Now I find that if I listen to it, I am asleep before it ends and although I wake up after it has ended and take my earplugs out, I am able to get back to sleep quickly. Before trying self-hypnosis CDs, I really had trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep. I would wake up repeatedly and find it difficult to drift off again or not get to sleep until early morning and then be tired. I would recommend that people try these. This CD is not the only one that works for me, but I much prefer this one. She has such a lovely lilting voice, which really lends itself to this medium. Some nights now, I find that I can get to sleep without listening to anything and either sleep through, or if I wake up, can get to sleep again quickly. On the odd occasion that I find it difficult to sleep, all I have to do is listen to the CD and I'm off to sleep again. Thank you Linda Hopkins.
