90 Days of Inspirational Videos – Day 48 – Florence Scovel Shinn

Florence Scovel was born in New Jersey on September 24, 1871. Everett Shinn, her husband, built a theater next to their apartment near Washington Square, New York , he wrote three plays in which Florence played a leading role.

She didn’t begin to write about metaphysics until she was in her 50’s. She wrote three books, her first, The Game of Life and How to Play it, is said to have been her most successful. The Game of Life and How to Play it is heavily influenced by the bible and Florence’s understanding of it.

This audio is from her book ,“The Secret Door To Success.” I found myself smiling and nodding in agreement with much of what was said, but if you are not someone that believes in God you may not appreciate her explanations and affirmations.

With such quotes as

“I cannot be separated from God the giver, therefore I cannot be separated from God’s Gifts.


“I am the daughter of the King, my rich Father now pours out His abundance on me. I am the daughter of the King, everything makes way for me.”

Florence Scovel Shinn is said to have been one of Louise Hays earliest influences in The Laws of Attraction and was considered  part of the New Thought movement, as her writings followed in the tradition of Phineas Quimby, Emma Curtis Hopkins, and both Charles Fillmore and Myrtle Fillmore, co-founders of the Unity Church.

You can find the full audios to her written work for free on you tube. Think I’ll be listening to them all.

Enjoy this excerpt from chapter 9 of “The Secret Door to Success.”

To your abundance and until tomorrow,
