“Most people consider life a battle–but it is not a battle, it is a game.” – The Game of Life and How to Play It by Florence Scovel Shinn
I came across Florence Scovel Shinn’s small but powerful book some years ago. I read it, bought it and continue to think about it today. She gives sound advice, sprinkling in true stories to emphasize and highlight what she is saying. Here are a few things to know about Florence and her work.
Florence Scovel Shinn was a 20th century author, artist and metaphysical teacher from New York City. Her work continues to influence and inspire people around the world and has touched thousands of lives.
About the Book
The Game of Life and How to Play It was written in the early 1920s. When Florence couldn’t find anyone to publish it, she self published in 1925. The messages in this book are still pertinent and it is now considered a spiritual classic. If you enjoyed The Secret, you will enjoy Florence Scovel Shinn’s book.
Florence talks about the game, the laws of prosperity, non-resistance, karma, forgiveness and the power of the word–and using the right words in both speaking and in thought. She also teaches how to re-program your mind and how “impressing the subconscious” is so powerful.
“If one desires a home, friend, position or any other good thing, make the demand for the 'divine selection.' For example: 'Infinite Spirit, open the way for my right home, my right friend, my right position. I give thanks it now manifests under grace in a perfect way.'"
"Whatever man feels deeply or images clearly, is impressed upon the subconscious mind, and carried out in minutest detail."
“One should always follow a denial with an affirmation.”
