Florence Scovel Shinn Affirmations are a part of my daily life. This is my second post on the work of Florence Scovel Shinn who is a very well-known metaphysical writer. Her affirmations and teachings have become a vital part of my life and I intend for this post to bring you closer to your manifestations.
A few lines from The Game of Life and How to Play it ‘Florence Scovel Shinn taught that life is a game and in order to play it well, one must learn to understand the universal laws that govern it. She showed her students and readers how to win health, prosperity, and happiness by mastering the game.’
These words from her work must always act as a reminder to us in our journey of life.
“Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract.
Man only dare use his words for three purposes, to “heal, bless or prosper.” What man says of others will be said of him, and what he wishes for another, he is wishing for himself.”
I encourage you all to write out these affirmations in your journal, Print out and stick it on your walls like I do and save it as a screensaver. Life surprises us every now and then and if we are able to step back from unfavorable situations and understand that I am the operant power of my life and I can manifest the right outcome, we can steer our lives in very positive directions. Are you always reacting and playing the victim unknowingly? Do you doubt your own worth and abilities? These affirmations can help you in rewiring your thought patterns and life patterns.
Man must prepare for the thing he has asked for when there isn’t the slightest sign of it in sight. This is the Law of Expectation.
It is about having faith. You go to a restaurant, order your food and then wait without anxiety for them to bring you the food, right? You do not call the wait staff every 2 minutes to check if they have actually placed the order for you. You do not go into the kitchen to see if the chef is preparing your meal. You do not complain every 2 minutes that you don’t think they are going to serve you. You just sit there in confidence knowing that your food will be there at any minute. That is the exact attitude to have when praying and manifesting. Be clear about what you want and ask and affirm for it and go about your day expecting it to show up anytime.
If you doubt in your affirmations and prayers, you will have many circumstances in your current reality that reflects your doubt. Are your affirming 20 times a day that “I am so grateful for my abundance” and then complaining to your friends that you do not have enough money to make ends meet and you can not buy a new dress for a date and so on and so forth? Guess what you just affirmed lack 1oo times and that is going to show up. It is not about mindlessly throwing a few words in the air and then being grumpy. Match your thought and speech to your affirmations. Every word that comes out of your mouth matters. Every sentence is an affirmation. Every mental thought is influencing your subconscious mind. You are a walking talking manifestor whether you like it or not. So why not use the power of your words and thoughts to create a beautiful life?
Florence said innumerable times that “One’s ships come in over a calm sea” It means that you have to let go of the anxiety that it might not happen and what if it does not happen. It is already done and you will receive confirmation of it manifesting in your reality any time now. But, the ship can arrive easily only when the sea is cooperating. Keep the sea inside yourself (your beautiful mind) calm and thrive in the inner knowing that it is already done. It is DONE!
Let us play the Game of Life the right way and have beautiful experiences that we can share with our loved ones and the world! Put an intention out into the Universe that from now on I intend to Thrive!
