What a wonderful story! Louise Hay, of Hay Ride and Hay House fame, was contacted by an out-of-print bookseller when he found an unpublished manuscript by metaphysician Florence Scovell Shinn. He wanted to know if she wanted to publish it. Did she!
I’ve been a fan of Mrs. Shinn for decades. Come to think of it, Louise Hay, too. Both of these women helped me find my path in the world, and more to the point, stay on it.
Florence Shinn was a master at affirmation. She took it to a new level, and in her “new” book, she does it again. In ten lessons, she reduces life to its highest common denominator: God is in charge, and I let God have its perfect way with me, my life, and my affairs.
She quotes Henry Wadsworth Longfellow who said, “A man’s life is a history of his fears.” Why not make it a history of your faith? That way you can say, “This is the health that faith built! This is the house that faith built! This is the wealth that faith built! This is the success, joy and happiness that faith built!”
Every year, one or another student of mine asks me about studying “Advanced” Metaphysics. I always smile and say, “There’s no such thing.” Metaphysics is so profound that it doesn’t need an advanced course.
That’s why—every year—I find a new basic metaphysics book and remember why I practice this miraculous way of living. This year, my basic book is The Magic Path of Intuition.
It’s helping me manifest what I need as I go through huge life changes at the moment, and it feels as brand-new as the day I first read Aristotle, the one who started it all.
I’m so glad Louise published this book. Go get it. Practice what’s in it. I know you’ll agree with me.
