Abundance, 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. 

The 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. 

As 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."

"The 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"


Florence 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.
