That was when I decided to buy this CD. I had some misgivings about CDs like this before and only reluctantly bought it. But I have to say, I am converted.
I have been listening to this CD for only six weeks now. It has a very comprehensive approach, covering everything from a feeling of security, to creativity, loving relationships and the ability to express your feelings, etc.
This is done using the ancient Asian philosophy of the Chakras, energy centers that are distributed throughout your torso and head. Each has a specific meaning and you are asked to connect to those meanings: Rooting to earth, enjoying a creative sexuality, loving relationships, and connect to your sense of intuition, etc. After each connection, you will be listening to affirmations in tune with the theme of the chakra.
I was very positively surprised how, despite the esoteric sounding title, this is firmly based in the latest psychological findings.
For example, the affirmations seem to wander from one side of your head to the other if you listen, as recommended, with headphones. This is supposed to activate both sides of your brain and is a technique that is also used in psychotherapy.
I was also surprised to observe the effects of this CD. I tend, when I am insecure about something, to push my voice down and make it deeper than it actually is.Read more ›
The recording quality and use of music on his CDs are spot on - very unobtrusive, relaxing, not distracting. His voice has a pleasant, deep timbre, but if you have issues with Cockney accents, you will have to look elsewhere.
I can see what the other reviewer meant by incongruence, as Glenn sounds like a honey-voiced Eastenders character, not a Yogi or lentilpopper, he sounds very down-to-earth, matter-of-fact and unpretentious. This is not an issue for me as his voice and accent are relaxing and familiar to me, preferable to, say, a more unfamiliar American accent.
Some of Glenn's CDs have quite ambitious, extreme-sounding and at times grammatically odd affirmations, which is a minor niggle I have with them. I found this to be less the case with this more low-key, gentle recording - hence it's one of my favourites (I have three of his CDs so far). If you just want to have a nice time relaxing, listening to a smooth, reassuring voice, rather than stop smoking or become a superhuman being, this is the CD to go for.
I am not entirely au fait with the origins of Chakra but it appears to be a metaphysical gift of the Orient. From what I can glean from this CD's content, Chakras are energy centres found on various parts of the body. Each one has a different colour associated with it and resonates to the sound of a certain musical note. Starting with the base Chakra, you progress up the body stopping at various points along the way to imagine the associated colour and to listen to the relevant note. The whole effect is supposed to be extremely relaxing and, yes, it does deliver the goods!
Personally I am not sure how successful this latest release will be as a seller. Most of the harmonious experiences on this CD can be gained from using other titles in this wonderful series.
Glenn Harrold, perhaps in fear of repeating himself, has branched out with this recording. It is certainly something very refreshing and full marks must be given for attempting to educate the uninitiated (myself, in this particular case).
If you are new to this self-help series, I would urge you to try - Unleash Your True Potential. As for the Harrold hardcore of which I am one, go out and grab a copy. It is certainly an interesting take on the familiar self-healing topic.
There are two guided meditations: one long (about 45 minutes) and a shorter version of 25 minutes for those days when you're short on time. Harrold provides information on the colour of each chakra, the part of the body influenced by it, the musical note and affirmations which help balance that particular chakra.
Especially the longer meditation is so clear you can easily visualize it in your head. Personally, I find that the addition of crystals makes the session more effective.
The affirmations are very empowering, an instant self-esteem booster. You're supposed to repeat them out loud, but I prefer to go over them silently in order not to break the relaxing atmosphere created by the meditation.
I also like the work of percussionist Layne Redmont. She has several cds and a very instructive tiny book with cd called "Chakra meditation" (also available through Amazon), but for short, effective meditations, Glenn Harrold's cd is my favourite.

The meditations themselves are okay, but not very well produced and particularly the long version feels rushed and kind of bored, but what really grinds on my nerves and makes it... Read morePublished on 1 Mar. 2015 by Kindle Customer
Love Glenns London accent! Another great CD to send me off to sleep, works every time without failPublished on 7 Jan. 2015 by S. Parker
Really works, but his slightly cockney voice takes some getting used toPublished on 7 Oct. 2014 by 1Hart
His voice is great yet the content is of poor quality. If you've been doing lots of meditation in the past you might find this one far too basic.Published on 1 Mar. 2014 by Bright Light
