Dear Belleruth,

Is it okay to alternate between two different tapes...eg.... Anger and Forgiveness one day and Depression the next, then back to Anger and Forgiveness? Would this pattern not be as effective?

Also, could one have a delayed effect/emotional response, say, an hour or two later after listening? Your Anger and Forgiveness tape has already impacted me in a very nice positive, holistic way. It is rather hard to articulate, but I definitely can tell a difference. Thank u for your work.

Sincerely,

Frank S.
