Chapter 1 – The Game
Classic book by Florence Scovel Shinn Read by Lemurian Girl
Now that we're full into the new year, 2014, likely you're hopeful and happy about this time of new beginnings. It's a chance to start over and work toward continuing to create a life that is fulfilling, peaceful, abundant and all around wonderful.
Many of you have heard of the movie “The Secret”, and many of you continue to gain wisdom and insights from the myriad of teachers featured in the film, such as Esther and Jerry Hicks and their “Abraham Hicks” franchise. This post is not to discount any of these teachers or teachings.
I feel that if particular methods or teachings create desired outcomes and results in your life as you rediscover your power and purpose as an Unlimited, Infinite Being of Love — Hallelujah, praise Jesus. That's most excellent and I congratulate you. Perhaps, however, you are open minded and are fascinated by the many ways to express Truth.
This book completely helped me to change my life into something good and beautiful at a time when it was unbearable and tragic.
The book isn't for everyone though. I've recommended it to a lot of people, and hardly anyone took it to heart the way I did. Maybe it's because I grew up attending Waldorf schools and studying many different types of spirituality, so maybe that's why this book was an easy read for me.
I also used to love reading children's books from England as a child growing up in the former English colony of Jamaica. Maybe my more unconventional background and sheltered childhood shaped me into a person with an ability to read many different styles of writing and still feel and take in the author's intention.
I actually purchased index cards and wrote down each one of my “problems” on one index card, flipped it over and wrote the proper Scovell Shinn intention on the other side. I used the “power of my spoken word” to create miracles.
Over the month of January, I'm going to read the book as part of my Real Revolutionaries podcast series. I stop and make commentary at some parts of the reading, I also re-read certain passages to make them gender equal.
I hope you enjoy, let me know if you find any resonance or have any success stories of your own with this book.
Someone besides me read this book into an audio book! You may like her voice better than mine, so I thought I'd provide a second option.
