Editorial Reviews

Review

The author's goal has been to remain faithful to the principles and methods of Emma Curtis Hopkins, and to restate them in language that can be readily comprehended by modem readers. She has succeeded admirably in doing so. Unveiling Your Hidden Power is highly recommended for the education of ministers, practitioners, counselors, and affirmative prayer workers. It presents the healing methodology of New Thought in as clear a way as is possible with words. It provides the tools, in the form of affirmations and I AM statements, for practical demonstration of the realities to which it points. It is necessary, however, to point out what the new book is not. It is not intended as a book of historical commentary regarding the Bible, except in the sense that Mrs. Hopkins had her own views on the Bible, which in turn have become part of the history of interpretation. For example, Mrs. Hopkins interpreted various verses in Chapter 1 of the Book of Genesis as pointing to what later became the twelve principal points of her classic books, High Mysticism and Scientific Christian Mental Practice. In a subsequent edition Dr. Miller would do well to add an appendix, providing the specific details of this allegorical interpretation. Unveiling Your Hidden Power is likely to take its place along with The Science of Mind (by Ernest Holmes), Divine Science and Healing (by Malinda E. Cramer), and a few other classics in elucidating metaphysical practice and revealing some of the depths of consciousness that underlie the practice. --Dr Robert Winterhalter Emma Curtis Hopkins Theological Seminary, Past President of The Society for the Study of Metaphysical Religions

Emma Curtis Hopkins was the teacher of teachers, the woman who taught the founders of Unity, Divine Science, Church of Truth, and Religious Science the woman who invented the term Science of Mind, back in the 1890s. She healed hundreds and taught thousands, using her own; line of reasoning; and upward vision; to empower her. With this book, both Hopkins' principles and practices are made accessible to modern audiences. Dr. Miller has translated Emma's Victorian rhetoric into clear, modern language and has identified and laid out Emma's recommendations for daily practice. This book encompasses 12 lessons which have been set forth using the primary texts by Emma Curtis Hopkins: High Mysticism, Scientific Christian Mental Practice,; (both published by DeVorss & Co.) and Resume, published by Ministry of Truth International. The period during which the basis of the teaching was derived was 1885 and 1896. Emma's first six lessons focus on establishing the individual's own health and well-being, while lessons 7-12 expand on the same principles, applying them to one's ministry, or work with others. --International New Thought Magazine Summer 2008

From the Author

Putting together Unveiling Your Hidden Power was a labor of love that took several years and many drafts. It began when I was called out of town for several months and the groups I was leading through Emma's Scientific Christian Mental Practice wanted to continue meeting but weren't able to interpret her prose or understand her many references to early Greek, Christian, and Roman writers. 
  So they scanned the chapters and I sent them sheets with Emma's text on one side and my explanations on the other. 
  It didn't take long for me to realize it would be easier to just tell them what she said in language they could understand!
  But it also became clear that this book was not a carefully constructed text, but rather a transcription of her class lectures. There are significant holes in the content. 
  So I went to the other two books of hers I could find: High Mysticism and Resume. There I found, not only the missing pieces, but also references that, when put together with what is in SCMP, become a clear set of guidelines for a daily practice.
  The process of putting these all together and "translating" Emma's Victorian prose into more modern usage was transformative. Writing and formatting the text was doing the practice. Clarifying her ideas was training my own mind. Seeing the links between the different sacred scriptures on which she built her work was a wonderful confirmation of my own Interfaith tendencies and appreciation for what Alduous Huxley called "The Perennial Philosophy."
  For several years I shared a comb-bound version of the book with Seminary students and informal study groups, and each time new copies were needed, I'd refine it.
   Finally, a friend said she'd like to publish it--so Unveiling Your Hidden Power was released to the world.

Emma Curtis Hopkins was known as the "teacher of teachers". She was the teacher of Nona Brooks, co-founder of Divine Science, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, co-founders of Unity, and Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science (Science of Mind), among others.

Her teachings break down into 12 basic ideas, which all of her readily available writings cover at various depths. Some people have trouble with her Victorian style of writing, and this book corrects that problem.

This is a clear and concise presentation of her basic teachings and is well presented for the modern reader. Exercises are included as well as Ms. Hopkins suggestions for daily spiritual practice.

For those who would like to read the originals, try her Scientific Christian Mental Practice, which is more accessable than her High Mysticism.

I disagree with the other reviews. Emma Curtis Hopkins was an awesome teacher indeed. The difficulty for many in reading her writings is not the english, but rather that her work is mystical. The new rendering, while an impressive effort, is somewhat akin to a Readers Digest condensation. The message is often lost or confused.

I implore Truth students to read Ms Hopkins in her orignal language - not through the filter of someone else who may or may not comprehend her true meaning.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ruth claims that this book is based on three of Emma's works: Scientific Christian Mental Practice, High Mysticism and the Resume of the latter, her purpose being to convert Emma's 'rhetorical Victorian english' into 21st century prose. The three books mentioned constitute around 700 pages, condensed by Ruth to about 160. But 90% of her book is based on just the first one of the three, which was written in plain, easily understandable english and which Ruth just lifts wholesale
almost word for word. 'High Mysticism' was deliberately written in mystical language - which was part of Emma's genius - and to interfere with or re-interpret it would entirely defeat the object Emma had in mind.
However, my objection to this book is that Ruth inserts some subtle changes to Emma's work, subverting her message in order to pursue an agenda of her own. I will give one typical example. In the second chapter, Ruth (in Emma's words) describes the five universal denials of the science, plus the fact that most people also need to make one or two personal denials that relate to specific errors in an individual's thoughts. She mentions by way of example how Plato utilised the essential five, but undermined himself because of his belief that women were 'a failure of blind nature.' Emma's correction was that he failed to see that ' there was no failure in One Life, One Mind, One Good, THEREFORE THERE IS NO DISTINCTION OF SEX IN GOD.' (I have capitalized Emma's own words from 'Scientific Christian Mental Practice.) Ruth decides to change this phrase to 'there are no barriers to gender.' This is entirely the opposite of what Emma said. Emma is saying that the distinction of gender is itself an error, a falsehhood, based on the concept of matter having independent reality.

I read Emma Curtis Hopkin's "Scientific Christian Mental Practice" a few months ago and loved it, but the old-fashioned Victorian style English is not easy to read. Miller's rendering into modern English has created a great classic of metaphysical literature that should appeal to and inspire all students of New Thought/Science of Mind. The book is a practical handbook for prayer/meditation practice. One of my most highly recommended spiritual books of all time. Thank you Ruth.

Independent New Thought minister and metaphysical teacher Ruth L. Miller presents Unveiling Your Hidden Power: Emma Curtis Hopkins' Metaphysics for the 21st Century, a guide to the principles and practices metaphysical trailblazer Emma Curtis Hopkins, the "teacher of teachers" who instructed the founders of Unity, Divine Science, Church of Truth, and Religious Science back in the 1890s. Unveiling Your Hidden Power makes Hopkins' theories and discoveries fully accessible to modern audiences; chapters reveal the power of faith in God in Christ Jesus combined with harnessing one's mental focus through positive affirmation. "The strongest position you can take is always on the side of happiness and peace, as they are the Reality of our lives. If someone tells you they are well, and you cheerfully and innocently believe them, even when medical tests have suggested otherwise, they will be recovered by your faith. This is because confidence, or Faith, is a life principle. As God cannot fail, these cannot fail." The twelve lessons in science and metaphysics are an invaluable tool for unleashing one's bountiful twin wellsprings of confidence and optimism.
