Discover how to become a more deliberate creator as you activate your purpose with passion, finding a place of self-acceptance along the way, in order to step fully into living a life out loud.
Once we discover what we have faith in, we can begin to see our path of fulfillment, called in Sanskrit, our Dharma. It may not seem clear at first, but there are clues we can follow. Rev. Dr. Ruth Miller shares some of those clues and invites us to take a few steps as we seek to discover the True Path that is unique to each of us.
“Faith is the Confidence to Command” says Emma Curtis Hopkins, teacher of Ernest Holmes and a hundred other New Thought leaders. “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed you would command…” is one of the teachings of the New Testament. And what is speaking Truth in the face of undesirable circumstances, but commanding that Truth to appear as our experience? Rev. Dr. Ruth Miller helps us see and know how the power of the One Mind spoken through us as Truth can dispel any semblance of distress.
Have you ever wondered why we wait for the proverbial 2x4 before we take action? What would life look like if we really BELIEVED we are worthy of God's good. I believe we are designed by God for greatness. So why the heck do I continue to limit the unlimited? Let's get real and find out cat's really stopping us from being pulled by your visions. I'm not fond of pain, you?
Have you ever noticed that you could see the stars most clearly in a very dark sky? When we experience the shadows – times of hardship, grief, challenge – it sometimes seems that the Light has vanished. And yet, it is almost always at this time that huge breakthroughs occur and the Light shines more brightly than ever. Our lives are a dance through times of shadow and of Light. Let’s make it a waltz!
Most of us were raised to believe in a particular person or idea. We were taught to say, “I believe in Jesus,” or “I believe in Science,” or “I believe there is no god,” or whatever our family, teachers, and elders told us was true. But our lives haven’t always demonstrated what we were taught to say. Rev. Dr. Ruth Miller draws on the Science of Mind teachers to explore why that is so and how we can discover what our real beliefs are–and how to change them.
Authentic vulnerability becomes the gateway to power and possibility. It calls us to be who we are and creates the space for others to do the same as we all move through the exciting adventure of transformation. That’s when we intentionally step into the power and possibility that being authentic and open brings.

As we mature, we become aware of more and more layers and dimensions of who we are. And, if we’re paying attention, an amazing thing happens: we begin to understand the patterns and the people who have shaped our lives in the past. Rev. Dr. Ruth Miller will share a process for releasing these patterns and the energy around those people–and how the world becomes more peaceful as we go through it.
Approval is a form of judgement. Embracing “enoughness,” or knowing that we are whole, perfect and complete, is an unfolding journey that we are each walking, at our own pace. Releasing the need for approval as we travel this road, is the process of shedding the habit of shame and self-shame/judgement. Cultivating authenticity means having the courage to release shame as we seek to “Live Out Loud.”
We wear masks in celebration, for fun, and to be safe. Masks that we wear for our hearts may keep us safe until they don’t. Vulnerability empowers us to drop the mask and let our light shine. Season of Peace & Nonviolence (CSL= Cultivating Authenticity: Dropping the Masks and Bushels)
