Unveil Your Intimate Self by Elena Georgiadou is a wonderful book discussing the one thing that connects us all—awareness. It is divided into three main sections each relaying specific information on what awareness is, how it works, and how you can achieve a connection to awareness or consciousness. The book asks you to realize how we have been conditioned to the thought patterns we have and to practice zoning in on your awareness to find peace and freedom in your life.
Before I hit chapter one, I was already very impressed by the organization and layout of the book. It is clean and professional looking, and the layout of the material makes it easy to follow. The first two parts of the book are divided into chapters, and the third is divided into sections, further divided into chapters, which stay on point making the information easy to absorb and follow. While it is a very organized and informative book, it also carries an almost conversational tone that keeps the information from becoming dry.
I generally don’t consider myself a spiritual person, identifying as atheist for as long as I can remember, but the explanation of the spiritual world make me reconsider my stance. Georgiadou does a fantastic job of incorporating impressive scientific data, especially in the areas of evolution and quantum physics, to support her message. I found myself following along with the breathing and meditation exercises and feeling better and much more positive. As a cynic, it is nice to be taken out of my comfort zone and shown a different way of perceiving the world.
As mentioned, Unveil Your Intimate Self is extremely well organized and clean. However, I did notice several areas with awkward wording, especially towards the end of the book. There are not many grammar mistakes throughout. The most noticeable appeared when listing the five senses; the first time “sound” is listed twice, and the second “sight” is listed twice, with each time “taste” being left out of the picture. The watermark boldly running diagonally across each page was a bit distracting in the beginning, but after a while I was able to tune it out.
I rate Unveil Your Intimate Self 4 out of 4 stars. Georgiadou has a unique voice and perspective, blending science and spirituality together, mirroring the modern thoughts and ancient wisdom involved in her practice of connecting via awareness and finding spiritual freedom. It is well organized with very few mistakes, and full of interesting and thought provoking content. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to reduce their stress (so, everyone), find inner peace, and learn interesting science and awareness practices along the way.
