Book Review: A Forgotten Typewritten Manuscript Unearthed 72 Years After Her Passing!




The Magic Path of Intuition

Florence Scovel Shinn

Forward by Louise L. Hay

Florence Scovel Shinn was an artist and pioneer in the Metaphysical world when she published her first book in 1925 The Game of Life and How to Play It. She passed away in 1940, so when this typewritten manuscript was found by a rare-books dealer, and brought to the attention of Louise L. Hay, founder of Hay House Publishing, it was an auspicious day indeed.

The term intuition conjures many images in the mind of today’s reader, some charlatan in nature, others a saving grace when danger abounds. For Florence Shinn, it was a way of life. Intuition was much more than a still small voice humbly guiding a person. The Magic Path of Intuition is filled with 10 lessons of a spiritual life. Among these, the power of prayer or intentioned thought, the Golden Rule, gratitude and the law of increase/decrease, faith, visualization, manifestation, negative/positive thought forms and how they affect life; happiness/health, being present, greed/love/hate, infinite intelligence, and magic, miracles.

Hay House has taken this manuscript and added a unique beauty of photographs that instill a meditative quality to the book. It is just that, not a book of meditation, but a meditation in of itself. Written in a conversational style, Florence Scovel Shinn shares her maxims among Biblical quotes and allegories.  

If you are a follower of Louise L. Hay and know her beliefs through her writings, then A Magic Path of Intuition will be a welcome addition to your bookcase. If you are new to Hay House publishing, I recommend this title along with all of the works by Louise L. Hay.
