5 Life Lessons from Self-Empowerment Pioneers

I was listening to some very old audio of Florence Scovel Shinn who is Louise Hay’s inspiration as a young woman.  Florence was around at the turn of the century.

You may not have heard of her, but I bet you know of Lewis Hay of Hay House Publishing!

How Amazing to receive lessons from an original modern day wisdom thinker, way ahead of her time, nearly 80 years later.    Florence Scovel Shinn wrote these jeweled bits in the 1920’s, and they are crazy relevant to the human experience right now!

You have to wonder, where did she get the info.  Did she pull it from an ancient wisdom lineage, did she come to it from life experience, or did she too have a teacher who shared such secrets with her.

Once again, I am reminded of how Tapping plays a huge part in the clearing and the creating described here. In other words the CHOICE to come back to your true self.

Lesson One

Forgiveness by Florence Scovel Shinn

When someone has been unjust to you, you are filled with wrath and resentment.  You cannot forgive that person. Times rolls by, and another person does the same thing.

It is because you have a picture of injustice engraved in your subconscious.

There is only one way to neutralize it. Be absolutely undisturbed  by the injustice, and send goodwill to all concerned.

Louise Hay

I love and accept others exactly as they are right now. The door to my  heart opens inward. I move through forgiveness to love. 
Lesson Two

Self-Esteem by Florence Scovel Shinn

No one keeps you out of your good but yourself.

A thought-form of self-pity is one  of the most dangerous you can have.

The more you pity yourself, the worse  things get.

Be above the worry belt, in consciousness, and then you will have instantaneous manifestations.

Your success, happiness or abundance comes
to  pass in the “twinkling of an eye.”
Louise Hay

I am a  magnet for all good because I choose to think positively. I love and approve of  myself and easily choose thoughts that nourish me.

Lesson Three

Money by Florence Scovel Shinn

Money is a symbol of freedom and is part of the Divine Plan.

There is an  invisible supply for you to
draw upon. It is the bank of the imagination.

Be grateful for what you have, and you will attract more to be grateful for.

Gratitude is the law of increase, and complaint is the law of decrease. 

Continually give thanks for what you have, and for manifestation of invisible  supply.
Louise Hay

I truly believe  that we are here to bless and prosper each other. Life supports me in wondrous  ways.

Lesson Four

Health by Florence Scovel Shinn

A person who is low-spirited or inharmonious will contract a cold; a happy, fearless person  will be
immune to germs.

For example, a woman goes out in cold weather in evening clothes—lightly clad—but is quite comfortable, for she feels she is looking well and is filled with anticipation for a happy evening.

If the same  woman is dressed in an unbecoming gown or in a bad humor, she will come back  complaining of a cold and discomfort and have a
cough the next day.

A  harmonious person is never vibrating at the same
rate as a germ.

Louise Hay

My body  is a mirror of my inner thoughts and beliefs. I love and approve of myself and  easily choose thoughts that nourish me.

Lesson Five:

Future Possibilities by Florence Scovel Shinn

Do not limit yourself to a one-station radio of life. Tune in with Infinite  Intelligence.

Look with amazement at that which is before you.

With the fixed idea that your supply comes from Infinite Intelligence, you will always be provided for, in both big and little ways.

The big things in life will come easily if you have no doubts or fears.

So live fully in today, and bring your  future into the now.
Louise Hay:

Life loves me! I am  safe in the Universe, which fully loves and supports me
