prosperity, healing, vital health, wealth, increased creativity and
attunement with Spirit are all results that Florence Scovel Shin
experienced in her life and in her book, The Game of Life, she
explains with real-life examples how our lives can be lived in a more
positive and conscious way.
Game Of Life is the most popular of several books written by Ms.
Shinn. Although not as well known today, this book was very
influential in the 1920s and ‘30s during the trying times of the
Depression. This book and its author remain outstanding proponents of
the power of thought and of the necessity of reducing fear. Throughout
this work, examples of positive thoughts and the influence they have
on our life's experiences are laid out in entertaining detail.
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said, "The Game of Life is filled
with wisdom and creative insights. That its teachings will work I know
to be fact, for I've long used them myself."
object of the game of life is to see clearly one's good and to
obliterate all mental pictures of evil. This must be done by
impressing the subconscious mind with a realization of good. When man
can wish without worrying, every desire will be instantly fulfilled...
Fear is man's only enemy - fear of lack, fear of failure, fear of
sickness, fear of loss and a feeling of insecurity on some plane... We
must substitute faith for fear, for fear is only inverted faith; it is
faith in evil instead of good..." Florence Scovel Shin - from
"The Game of Life"
Scovel Shinn was an artist and a metaphysics teacher in New York in the
early part of the 20th century. Her books are truly incredible and show
how we can we can enjoy a winning streak of health, prosperity, and
happiness. She shares real-life stories with us from her many clients to
illustrate how positive attitudes and affirmations invariably succeed in
making one a "winner" in life -- able to control life's
conditions and release abundance through a knowledge of spiritual law.
Florence Shinn is one of the last century's most popular
Success teachers. Apparently, she had quite a following in her
"heyday" too, for her lectures were well attended and her
books were popular not only in America, but also abroad.
