She possessed just two dollars in the world.I said: We bless the two dollars and know that you have the magic purse of the Spirit- it can never be depleted- as money goes out, immediately money comes in, under grace in perfect ways.Author:Florence Scovel Shinn (September 24, 1871, Camden, New Jersey - October 17, 1940) was an American artist and book illustrator who became a New Thought spiritual teacher and metaphysical writer in her middle years. Her metaphysical works began with her self-published The Game of Life and How to Play it in 1925. Your Word is Your Wand was published in 1928 and The Secret Door to Success in 1940. The Game of Life and How to Play it includes quotes from the Bible and anecdotal explanations of the authors understanding of God and man. Her philosophy centers on the power of positive thought and usually includes instructions for verbal or physical affirmation. A typical Scovel Shinn piece of advice would be It is safe to say that all sickness and unhappiness come from the violation of the law of love. A new commandment I give unto you, Love one another, and in the Game of Life, love or good-will takes every trick. Her advice is usually accompanied by a real life anecdote, as for the above Love one another advice: A woman I know, had, for years an appearance of a terrible skin disease. The doctors told her it was incurable, and she was in despair. She was on the stage, and she feared she would soon have to give up her profession, and she had no other means of support. She, however, procured a good engagement, and on the opening night, made a great hit. She received flattering notices from the critics, and was joyful and elated. The next day she received a notice of dismissal. A man in the cast had been jealous of her success and had caused her to be sent away. She felt hatred and resentment taking complete possession of her, and she cried out, Oh God dont let me hate that man. That night she worked for hours in the silence. She said, I soon came into a very deep silence. I seemed to be at peace with myself, with the man, and with the whole world. I continued this for two following nights, and on the third day I found I was healed completely of the skin disease! In asking for love, or good will, she had fulfilled the law, (for love is the fulfilling of the law) and the disease (which came from subconscious resentment) was wiped out..
