Florence Scovel Shinn believed that until people impressed their subconscious minds with the conviction that they were successful they would continue to fail in life. She believed this could be done via affirmations.
She described the subconscious mind to be 'power without direction'. She knew that if we felt deeply, and backed that feeling up with words of sincerity, we would achieve everything we wanted to and more.
"In 1925, Florence Scovel Shinn made her debut on the metaphysical scene with her first book, The Game of Life and How to Play It. Not long after this, I was born.
Although Ms. Shinn died in 1940, I have long felt a kinship with her. I first came across her work in 1972 as I was beginning my own exploration of the metaphysical world, and I have been enamored of her ever since. I resonated with her no-nonsense way of writing—her words spoke to me, and I became a devoted follower. I often quoted her affirmations and shared them with my own students.
Last year, a rare-book dealer found a small, typewritten unpublished manuscript of the last writings of Florence Scovel Shinn. I received a letter from them asking if Hay House would have any interest in it. Life works in the most wondrous ways. I am continuously astounded as my good comes to me. That this work would be found and come into my hands, just amazed me.
Here is a taste of what you’ll find in this beautiful little treasure. I hope you enjoy it." ~ Louise Hay
