The Way Home

Our spiritual path is not a linear one. ‘The way home’ is not a straight path. It is filled with the twists
and turns of experience. My hope is that if you have found yourself with this book…that somewhere
within these pages will be the missing piece to whatever puzzle you are striving to put together…to bring you home to the infinite being of light that you truly are.

The Story behind The Way Home

Devora was Ruth’s first-born daughter. With her birth and subsequent physical challenges, Ruth was catapulted along an intense journey as she navigated parenthood and went on to have another two daughters.

Concomitant to this, Ruth built a career of helping people both as an energy psychotherapist and healer. Ruth studied Reiki and her intuitive gifts and compassionate nature began to manifest in powerful inspired reflection readings that were profound and relevant to her clients.

The painful loss of Devora at the age of fourteen propelled Ruth to search for answers to life’s deepest questions. She met a spiritual teacher and intuitive mentor who quickly identified the ‘channel’ within her, and taught her how to connect with her spirit guides. This teacher encouraged Ruth to expand her channeling abilities to include communication with the guides and with Devora.

Ruth had begun a journey to heal her grief from Devora’s loss. She found herself being woken up gently by her spirit guides and she would make her way down to her peaceful sanctuary. She asked for and channeled guidance. And The Way Home came to be.


More quotes from The Way Home

“We are human as well as spiritual beings. We exist as both, and at the same time. It is for us to strike the correct balance between the two.”

“The spirit world waits patiently for us to wake up. It’s a new dawn and a new day… Will we fill it with the same experiences as yesterday? Or will we busy ourselves with fulfiling our true potential as spiritual beings?”

“The more we are prepared to go above our physical nature and strive to connect with our spiritual selves, the more connected we will automatically feel.”

“We should never forget that we came to this planet to fulfil a purpose and a soul destiny.”

“Forgiveness is paramount. We have become stuck in the blame game for far too long.”

“We can all begin to work on creating more harmony in our lives—which starts with creating peaceful thoughts in our minds.”

“There are no wrong turns on this journey called life, only different realities for us to experience at any given moment.”

“We have created impossibly high standards for ourselves, ideals to practice, to live by, or by which to give ourselves a failing grade.”

“Nobody told us it had to be perfect, or even how it had to be at all. This is all on us. This is all (again) our creation.”

In my darkest moments a voice reaches out to me, from over 8000 miles away, a voice of love and healing. With a knowingness that I cannot explain, this voice touches my soul. And with an old wisdom finds the places of greatest woundedness and blesses the pain with a balm that soothes and brings great comfort.
