I just finished reading a little book called The Game of Life and How to Play It, by Florence Scovel Shinn. It is quite remarkable, in that it is what most consider to be New Age thinking and New Age Concepts, yet it was written by Shinn, who lived in the 1800's and died in 1940.
The book was mentioned by Karen Knowler on our latest module on the ExtRAWdinary Life course. It is a thoroughly inspiring read and homes in on the truth of the Power we wield with both Thought and Word.
" The imagination has been called The Scissors of the Mind, and it is ever busy cutting, cutting, the pictures man sees there, and sooner or later he meets his own creations in his outer world" - Florence S. Shinn
Inspired by the book and it's message - I have embarked on a fast for the day. Just drinking lemon and Himalayan crystal salts in water.
My main motivations for fasting: to stop the system and restart again afresh, in both mind and body.
I have slipped into some very unhealthy food choices of late, since the weather turned so cold here on the West Cost of South Africa. These things have affected my skin, energy levels and general tolerance, leaving me irritable and easily depressed or prone to angry outbursts.
I have started a new habit today: I will write out a list of things that I am grateful for every morning before I start the day in any other way. I will look for signs of Universal Guidance in every minute of the passing hour and immerse myself in the Grace I know surrounds me and nurtures me as a loving mother does her child.
