Your Word is Your Wand, by Florence Scovel Shinn, [1928]


(See also The Game of Life and How to Play It.)

Man comes into the world financed by God, with all that he desires or requires already on his pathway.

This supply is released through faith and the Spoken Word.

“If thou canst believe, all things are possible.”

For example: A woman came to me one day, to tell me of her experience in using an affirmation she had read in my book, The Game of Life and How to Play It.

She was without experience but desired a good position on the stage. She took the affirmation: “Infinite Spirit, open the way for my great abundance. I am an irresistible magnet for all that belongs to me by Divine Right.”

She was given a very important part in a successful opera.

She said: “It was a miracle, due to that affirmation, which I repeated hundreds of times.”


I now draw from the abundance of the spheres my immediate and endless supply.

All channels are free!

All doors are open!
I now release the gold-mine within me. I am linked with an endless golden stream of prosperity which comes to me under grace in perfect ways.
Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of abundance forever.
My God is a God of plenty and I now receive all that I desire or require, and more.
All that is mine by Divine Right is now released and reaches me in great avalanches of abundance, under grace in miraculous ways.
My supply is endless, inexhaustible and immediate and comes to me under grace in perfect ways.
All channels are free and all doors fly open for my immediate and endless, Divinely Designed supply.

My ships come in over a calm sea, under grace in perfect ways.
I give thanks that the millions which are mine by Divine Right, now pour in and pile up under grace in perfect ways.
Unexpected doors fly open, unexpected channels are free, and endless avalanches of abundance are poured out upon me, under grace in perfect ways.
I spend money under direct inspiration wisely and fearlessly, knowing my supply is endless and immediate.
I am fearless in letting money go out, knowing God is my immediate and endless supply.

Day 174/365: Protection and Guidance

Day 174/365: Protection and Guidance

June 23, 2011

Protection and Guidance for my loved ones is my consistent prayer. The universal shield of light from heaven to protect us from any negative energies, accident, sickness, and misfortunes. The Guiding Spirit to lead us to correct path and direction according to a Divine Plan in a perfect way.


I am surrounded by the White Light of the Christ, through which nothing negative can penetrate.

I walk in the Light of the Christ and my fear giants dwindle into nothingness.

There is nothing to oppose my good.


Infinite Spirit, give me wisdom to make the most of my opportunities.

Never let me miss a trick.


I am always under direct inspiration. I know just what to do and give instant obedience to my intuitive leads.


My angel of destiny goes before me, keeping me in the Way.


All power is given unto me to be meek and lowly of heart.

I am willing to come last, therefore, I come first!


I now place my personal will upon the altar.

Your will, not my will; Your way not my way; Your time not my time—and in the twinkling of an eye it is done!


There are no mysteries in the Kingdom. Whatever I should know will now be revealed to me, under grace.


I am a perfect non-resistant instrument for God to work through, and His perfect plan for me now comes to pass in a magic way.

Day 171/365: There is No Loss in Divine Mind

Day 171/365: There is No Loss in Divine Mind

June 20, 2011

Are you feeling Loss? Here is a beautiful passage from Your Word is your Wand from Florence Scovel Shinn

If man loses anything it shows there is a belief of loss in his subconscious mind. As he erases this false belief, the article, or its equivalent will appear on the external.

For example: A woman lost a silver pencil in a theatre. She made every effort to find it but it was not returned.

She denied loss, taking the affirmation: “I deny loss, there is no loss in Divine Mind, therefore I cannot lose that pencil. I will receive it or its equivalent.”

Several weeks elapsed. One day she was with a friend who wore about her neck on a cord, a beautiful gold pencil, who turned to her and said: “Do you want this pencil? I paid fifty dollars for it at Tiffany’s.”

The woman was aghast, and replied (almost forgetting to thank her friend) “Oh! God aren’t you wonderful! The silver pencil wasn’t good enough for me!”

Man can only lose what doesn’t belong to him by Divine Right, or isn’t good enough for him.


There is no loss in Divine Mind, therefore, I cannot lose anything that is rightfully mine.

Infinite Intelligence is never too late! Infinite Intelligence knows the way of recovery.


There is no loss in Divine Mind, therefore, I cannot lose anything which belongs to me.

It will be restored or I receive its equivalent.

Day 170/365: There is no Loss in Divine Mind

Day 165/365: I Shall Never Want

June 14, 2011

A strong message for everyone! Your dawn of Success, Happiness and Abundance is sure to come!

The Secret Door to Success, by Florence Scovel Shinn, [1941]

“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.” Psalms 23:1

The 23rd Psalm is the best known of all the Psalms—we might say that it is the keynote to the message of the Bible.

It tells man he shall never want, when he has the realization (or conviction) that the Lord is his Shepherd: the realization that Infinite Intelligence supplies every need.

If you get this conviction today, every need will be met now and forever-more; you will draw, instantly, from the abundance of the spheres, whatever you desire or require; for what you need is already on your pathway.

A woman suddenly had the realization: “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall never want.” She seemed to be touching her invisible supply, she felt outside of Time and Space, she no longer relied on the external.

Her first demonstration was a small, but necessary one. She needed at once, some large paperclips, but had no time to go to a stationer’s to buy them.

In looking for something else, she opened a little-used chest, and in it, she found, about a dozen large paper-clips. She felt that the law was working, and gave thanks; then some needed money appeared, things large and small came her way.

Since then she has relied upon the statement: “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall never want.”

We used to hear people say, “I do not think it is right to ask God for money or things.”

They did not realize that this Creative Principle is within each man.—(The Father within). True Spirituality is proving God as your supply, daily—not just once in a while.

Jesus Christ knew this law, for whatever He desired or required, appeared immediately on His pathway, the loaves and fishes and money from the fish’s mouth.

With this realization, all hoarding and saving would disappear.

This does not mean that you should not have a big bank account, and investments, but it does mean that you should not depend upon them, for if you had a loss in one direction, you would have a gain in another.

Always “your barns would be full and your cup flow over.”

Now, how does one make this contact with his invisible supply? By taking a statement of Truth which clicks and gives him realization.

This is not open to a chosen few, “Whosoever calleth on the name of the Lord shall be delivered.” The Lord is your shepherd and my shepherd and everybody’s shepherd.

God is the Supreme Intelligence devoted to supplying man’s need; the explanation is, that man is God in action. Jesus Christ said, “I and the Father are one.

We might paraphrase the statement and say, I and the great Creative Principle of the Universe, are one and the same.

Man only lacks when he loses his contact with this Creative Principle, which must be fully trusted, for it is Pure Intelligence and knows the way of Fulfillment.

The reasoning mind and personal will, cause a short circuit.

“Trust in me and I will bring it to pass.”

Most people are filled with apprehension and dread, when there is nothing to cling to on the external.

A woman came to a practitioner and said, “I’m only a poor little woman with no one but God back of me.” The practitioner said,—”You need not worry if you have God back of you,” for “all that the Kingdom affords is yours.”

A woman called me on the phone and said, almost in tears, “I’m so worried about the business situation.” I replied, “The situation with God remains the same: The Lord is your Shepherd: you shall not want.” “If one door shuts, another door opens.”

A very successful business-man who conducts all affairs on Truth methods, said, “The trouble with most people is, that they get to relying on certain conditions. They haven’t enough imagination to go forward—to open new channels.”

Nearly every big success is built upon a failure.

I was told that Edgar Bergen lost his part in a Broadway production because they did not want any more dummies. Noel Coward got him on the Rudy Vallee radio hour, and he and Charlie McCarthy became famous over night.

I told the story, at one of my meetings, of a man who was so poor and discouraged, that he ended it all. A few days later, came a letter notifying him that he had inherited a large fortune.

A man in the meeting said: “That means, when you want to be dead, your demonstration is three days off.” Yes, do not be fooled by the darkness before the dawn.

It is a good thing to see the dawn once in a while, to convince you how unfailing it is. It reminds me of an experience of several years ago.

I had a friend who lived in Brooklyn near Prospect Park. She liked to do unusual things and said to me: “Come to visit me and we’ll get up early and see the sun-rise in Prospect Park.”

At first I refused, and then came the hunch that it would be an interesting experience.

It was in the summer. We got up about four o’clock,—my friend, her little daughter and myself. It was pitch dark, but we sallied forth down the street, to the entrance of the Park.

Some policemen eyed us curiously, but my friend said to them with dignity, “We are going to see the sun-rise;” and it seemed to satisfy them. We walked through the Park to the beautiful rose-garden.

A faint pink streak appeared in the East, then suddenly, we heard a most tremendous uproar. We were near the Zoo and all the animals were greeting the dawn.

The lions and tigers roared, the hyenas laughed, there were shrieks and howls: every animal had something to say, for a new day was at hand.

It was indeed, most inspiring. The light slanted through the trees; everything had an unearthly aspect.

Then, as it grew lighter, our shadows were in front instead of behind us. The dawn of a new day!

This is the wonderful dawn which comes to each one of us, after some darkness.

Your dawn of Success, Happiness and Abundance is sure to come.

Every day is important, for we read in the wonderful Sanskrit poem, “Look well, therefore, to this day, such is the salutation of the dawn.”

This day the Lord is your Shepherd! This day, you shall not want; as you and this great Creative Principle are one and the same.

The 34th Psalm is also a Psalm of security. It starts with a blessing for the Lord, “I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”

“They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.” Seeking the Lord means that man must make the first move. “Draw near to me and I will draw near to thee, saith the Lord.”

You seek the Lord by making your affirmation, expecting and preparing for your good.

If you ask for success and prepare for failure, you will receive the thing you have prepared for.

I tell in my book, “The Game of Life and How to Play It,” of a man who asked me to speak the word that all his debts be wiped out.

After the treatment, he said, “Now I’m thinking what I’ll say to the people when I haven’t the money to pay them.” A treatment won’t help you if you haven’t faith in it, for faith and expectancy impress the subconscious mind with the picture of fulfillment.

In the 23rd Psalm we read, “He restoreth my soul.” Your soul is your subconscious mind and must be re-stored with the right ideas.

Whatever you feel deeply is impressed upon the subconscious, and manifests in your affairs.

If you are convinced that you are a failure, you will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success.

This is done by making an affirmation which “clicks.”

A friend in a meeting said that I had given her the statement as she was leaving the room—”The ground you are on is harvest ground.” Things with her, had been very dull; but this statement clicked.

“Harvest Ground, Harvest Ground,” rang in her ears. Good things immediately commenced to come to her, and happy surprises.

The reason it is necessary to make an affirmation is because repetition impresses the subconscious. You cannot control your thoughts at first, but you can control your words, and Jesus Christ said: “By your words you are justified and by your words you are condemned.”

Every day, choose the right words; the right thoughts!

The Imaging faculty is the creative faculty: “Out of the imaginations of the heart come the issues of life.”

We have all a bank we can draw upon, the Bank of the Imagination.

Let us imagine ourselves rich, well and happy: imagine all our affairs in divine order; but leave the way of fulfillment to Infinite Intelligence.

“He has weapons ye know not of,” He has channels which will surprise you.

One of the most important passages in the 23rd Psalm is—”Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.”

This means that even in the presence of the enemy situation, brought on by your doubts, fears or resentments, a way out is prepared for you.

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall never want.

Your word is your Wand
by Florence Scovel Shinn


In that wonderful moving picture, “The Thief of Bagdad,” we were told in letters of light that happiness must be earned!

It is earned through perfect control of the emotional nature.

There can be no happiness where there is fear, apprehension or dread. With perfect faith in God comes a feeling of security and happiness.

When man knows that there is an invincible power that protects him and all that he loves, and brings to him every righteous desire of the heart, he relaxes all nervous tension and is happy and satisfied.

He is undisturbed by adverse appearances, knowing that Infinite Intelligence is protecting his interests and utilizing every situation to bring his good to pass.

“I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in a desert.”

Uneasy lies the head that wears a frown. Anger, resentment, ill-will, jealousy and revenge rob man of his happiness and bring sickness, failure and poverty in their wake.

Resentment has ruined more homes than drink and killed more people than war.

For example: There was a woman who was healthy and happy and married to a man she loved.

The man died and left part of his estate to a relative. The woman was filled with resentment. She lost weight, was unable to do her work, developed gall-stones and became very ill.

A metaphysician called upon her one day. He said: “Woman, see what hate and resentment have done to you; they have caused hard stones to form in your body and only forgiveness and good-will can cure you.”

The woman saw the Truth of the statement. She became harmonious and forgiving and regained her splendid health.

I am now deluged with the happiness that was planned for me in the Beginning.

My barns are full, my cup flows over with joy.


My endless good now comes to me in endless ways.


I have a wonderful joy in a wonderful way, and my wonderful joy has come to stay.


Happy surprises come to me each day. “I look with wonder at that which is before me.”


I walk boldly up to the lion on my pathway and find it is a friendly airedale.


I am harmonious, happy, radiant; detached from the tyranny of fear.


My happiness is built upon a rock. It is mine now and for all eternity.


My good now flows to me in a steady unbroken, ever-increasing stream of happiness.


My happiness is God’s affair, therefore, no one can interfere.


As I am one with God I am now one with my heart’s desire.


I give thanks for my permanent happiness, my permanent health, my permanent wealth, my permanent love.


I am harmonious, happy and Divinely magnetic, and now draw to me my ships over a calm sea.


God’s ideas for me are perfect and permanent.


My heart’s desire is a perfect idea in Divine Mind, incorruptible and indestructible, and now comes to pass, under grace in a magical way.

“Faith without nerve is dead.”


There is never a slip ’twixt the right cup and the right lip.


Never look or you’d never leap.


God works in unexpected places, through unexpected people, at unexpected times, His wonders to perform.


Power moves but is never moved.


Loving your neighbor means not to limit your neighbor in word, thought or deed.


“Never argue with a hunch.”


Christopher Columbus followed a hunch.


The Kingdom of Heaven is the realm of perfect ideas.


It is dark before the dawn but the dawn never fails. Trust in the dawn.

It is the fearless things that count.


Never do today what intuition says to do tomorrow.


It’s a great life if you don’t reason.


Regard your neighbor as yourself.


Never hinder another’s hunch.


Selfishness binds and blocks. Every loving and unselfish thought has in it the germ of success.

Faith is elastic. Stretch it to the end of your demonstration.


Before you call you are answered, for the supply precedes the demand.


What you do for others you are doing for yourself.


Every act committed while angry or resentful brings unhappy reaction.


Sorrow and disappointment follow in the wake of deceit and subterfuge. The way of the transgressor is hard. “No good thing will be withheld from him who walks uprightly.”


There is no power in evil. It is nothing; therefore can only come to nothing.


Fear and impatience demagnetize. Poise magnetizes.


Drown the reasoning mind with your affirmation. Jehoshaphat clapped his cymbals so that he wouldn’t hear himself think.


All bondage is an illusion of the race consciousness. There is always a way out of every situation, under grace. Every man is free to do the will of God.


Sure-ism is stronger than Optimism.

It is dangerous to stop in the middle of a hunch.

Infinite Spirit is never too late.
