Unveil Your Intimate Self is a self-help book written by Elena Georgiadou, an author who specialized in personal transformation and in the new definition of health that embraces body, mind and spirit. Having journeyed to many countries around the world, exploring nature, religions and cultures, she wrote this book from a philosophical point of view. She poses thought-provoking questions and seeks to answer them through the use of esoteric concepts such as consciousness, the Self, and enlightenment. Elena Georgiadou teaches readers profound life skills such as meditation, creating healthy relationships, and managing stress.
The author gave up her comfort zone and embarked on a spiritual journey to find answers to
who she is, why she was born and what is the purpose of life in such a world full of violence, destruction and conflict in our relationships and societies as a whole. She successfully found the answers to these questions and even more answers to questions unasked. I found this to be profound, since she did not wait for someone to spoon-feed her responses to her queries, but rather went out into the big wide world and did it herself. This is inspirational and it is what I liked the most about the book content, and the author.
I also liked that the author featured the knowledge and quotes of some spiritual teachers such as Mahatma Gandhi and Deepak Chopra. This shows that early researches and discoveries on the field of spirituality and philosophy were appreciated and considered to be relevant in today’s time. The author also quoted some biblical Scriptures, and also featured the quotes of Buddha. However, these religious texts were used very lightly, and no religion was endorsed or undermined. The book lacked grammatical blunders, hence making it easy for the reader to explore it.
There is nothing I disliked about the book. However, what irritated me was that the name of the publishing company that published the book appeared across every page of the book, in light but large fonts. I found this to be really exasperating because that made the pages look more complex to read. Apart from this, I have no other complaint about the book. I rate the book 3 out of 4 stars. The book was professionally edited but the appearance of the name of the publishing company was annoying to the sense that a star had to subtracted for that.
I highly recommend the book to everyone, especially those with inquisitive minds. Persons not subscribed to any religion may not be offended when reading Unveil Your Intimate Self, since religious texts and beliefs featured in the book were not emphasised.
