|The Magic Path of Intuition by Florence Scovel Shinn|
By Florence Scovel Shinn
Florence Scovel Shinn was a gifted teacher who shaped the fields of spiritual growth and New Thought. Her practical, straightforward style empowered countless people to trust their inner knowing and overcome their challenges.
With an Introduction by self-help luminary Louise Hay, who credits Florence as one of her early inspirations, this simple yet poignant book—which contains original, previously unpublished text—can help you positively transform your life. Powerful affirmations will show you how to cultivate your intuition and release any resistance, fear, and doubt.
Florence said, "You must live fully in the now to make your dreams come true." Are you ready to follow your own magic path, your Divine wisdom, and realize your dreams? Goals or wishes that seem far off or unattainable are just waiting for you to believe in your potential and innate ability to manifest your desires!
|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.
The years passed. Then, in the fall of 2012, a rare-books dealer found a small, typewritten unpublished manuscript of the last writings of Florence Scovel Shinn. Here is an excerpt from the letter that was sent with it:
Lesson 1 – The Magic faith of Intuition
There was a lady who knew the law of preparation and purchased expensive magazines to give herself the feeling of opulence. Intuition told her to buy the magazines. One way to cultivate intuition is to say before sleeping: "In the morning, I'll know just what to do." Ideas will flash before you begin to reason.
Prayer is telephoning to God, and intuition is God telephoning to you. Intuition comes from your superconscious mind. It is God within. The subconscious is simply power without direction. What you feel deeply or say with feeling is impressed upon the subconscious and carried out in the minutest detail. It is your soul and must be restored. Impress the subconscious with the perfect ideas of the superconscious mind instead of the doubts and fears of the conscious mind. Do this by repeating an affirmation: Stand still and see the power within me.
Through following intuition, you often go for one thing and get another. From the superconscious—the realm of intuition—what you should know will be revealed to you. Become very quiet and make affirmations.
You have no need for resentment, resistance, fear, worry, all forms of fighting, etc. The situation you resent will be wiped out. Stand still. Keep your poise, and the Power within will fight your battle. Anger and resentment blur vision and often affect eyesight, as well as prevent you from following your intuitive leads.
Filled with resentment, you hurried home to look into the mirror to see what was wrong with the hat. You had a pain in the back of your neck, for your attitude of mind has caused congestion there. From this comes the slang expression: "You give me a pain in the neck." You are now ready to contract a cold or something worse. Call on the law of forgiveness at once. Send love and goodwill to your friend, and say, "Oh, Power Above, give me another chance . . . this time I won't argue. I'll be nonresistant, loving, and kind." Now you have neutralized the congestion and the ensuing ills. The next time you meet your friend, you are filled with goodwill, and you really do not care whether she likes your hat or not. You say, "What a lovely day!" And she will reply, "How well you look! Where did you get that cute hat?"
There is no emotional response to a situation. You have finished with it; otherwise, you have the same experience over and over again. Poise is the pearl of great price.
The Game of Life is a game of boomerangs. Whatever you send out comes back. Jesus said to do unto others as you would be done by them. You cannot hurt anyone without hurting yourself. All of us are linked by a mysterious magnetic force; what you send out in word or thought against another reacts on yourself. If a person is purely on the mental plane, his comeback (or karma) takes longer. If you are developed spiritually, it returns very quickly; the more you know, the more you are responsible for. So learn your lessons and be thorough with the long road of experience.
You will be amazed by the working of the law. One of my students brought harmony out of chaos in her business affairs by using the above statement.
As the alchemists of old transmuted all base metals into gold, you have the power to change all evil into good.
