The Wisdom of Florence Scovel Shinn


“Most people consider life a battle, but it is not a battle, it is a game. It is a game, however, which can not be played successfully without the knowledge of spiritual law, and the Old a New Testaments give the rules of the game with wonderful clearness. Jesus Christ taught that it was a great game of giving and receiving.”

I think this paragraph summarizes the resources that Florence used for her books. Even though these books were published between 1925 and 1940 her teachings are up to date.

She is a classic among metaphysics authors with a great message, about all aspects of life, which is timeless and can be found on five books:

  • The game of life and how to play it,
  • Your word is your wand,
  • The secret door to success,
  • The power of the spoken word.

I have these classics in all its presentations: digital, printed, and audiobook when possible.

I like the voice in the audiobook for the game of life and how to play it. It is a woman’s voice. On the contrary, the secret door to success has a man’s voice and I would prefer a woman’s voice because the author is a woman, but it is a matter of taste.

Another book by Florence Scovel Shinn: The magic path of intuition.
