An Inside Job™: Unwrap yourself this season

Notting Hill therapist and author of An Inside Job™, Helen Craven shares how her book can help loved ones to remember the greatest gift of all this season—what’s inside.

Who remembers being a child and opening a Christmas present that sent waves of pleasure and excitement through you? Who remembers opening a present and feeling the weight of disappointment? The chances are that you’ve experienced both, so what will you feel when someone gives you a nicely wrapped gift this Christmas? Are you motivated to immediately unwrap it confidently, expecting something exciting and special, or with indifference and possibly even foreboding?

What we expect and want from the outside world is a reflection of what we feel within. If we feel good about ourselves and fulfilled in our lives then anything that we receive from the outside world can be received as a gift. Either something that delights and excites us, or something to observe, experience and from which to learn.

The intention of the book and CD, An Inside Job™, is to help everyone view themselves and their life as a gift. The kind of gift that always excites and lasts forever. We too are gifts, so unwrap your outer self with care and gently explore what is within, knowing that you have many wonderful aspects to enjoy. If your true wonderful self isn’t immediately visible, then take the time to gently unwrap a little more because it is there—only shrouded by unwanted wrapping that has enfolded it by circumstance and past occurrences.

Take a moment to remember how it felt to find that shiny new bike, or shiny piece of technological wizardry that you were yearning for. Remember that feeling and hold on to it. Keep that memory because it’s part of you and can always be enjoyed. It’s the feeling you allowed yourself to have—your choice—your magic and no-one can take it away. Keep the good feelings and let go of the negatives. It is what you deserve, so take it.
