This classic book does not address the ‘psychic world’ or psychic development but it is still atop my list of recommended reads. Before the Law of Attraction was all the rage, Mrs Shinn was teaching the world about how our thoughts affect the world around us. Her view has a uniquely religious (Christian) perspective but the truth of what she addresses resounds with hundreds of thousands of readers. Originally published in 1925, The Game Of Life and How to Play It is at the heart of all modern Law of Attraction teachings. It was this book that inspired Louise L Hay and her publishing empire.
At the heart of the her teachings is that life should not be viewed as a struggle but as a game. And mastering any game is knowing the rules of the game. The rules are that the Universe follows the your words.
Matthew 7:7-8 says…
7 Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will
find. Knock, and it will be opened for you.
8 For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks
finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.
Proverbs 18:21 says…
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue;
those who love it will eat its fruit.
For those on the spiritual path, the teachings of Florence Scovel Shinn are essential to understanding the workings of the Universe in your life!
