In the introduction to Your Word Is Your Wand, Florence notes that ‘This volume of affirmations was written by popular demand’. It was conceived as the sequel to The Game of Life: And How To Play It that was released to much acclaim three years before this little volume.
Your Word Is Your Wandis exactly what it says in the intro– affirmations for every occasion. There is a short section providing some context for the book, as Florence says ‘Man’s works is his wand filled with magic and power’ and a commentary on each set of affirmations. She provides numerous uplifting and potent affirmations for:
- Words of Wisdom
- The Divine Design
- Health (including Eyes, Anaemia, Ears, Rheumatism, False Growths and Heart Disease)
- Animals (and pets!)
- The Elements, and
If absolutely none of these leap out at you, there is even a section at the end titled, Miscellaneous.
My favourite affirmation when I’m looking for a job is under Success: ‘I have magical work in a magical way, I give magical service for magical pay’. Depending on the position I change magical to wonderful or perfect or brilliant. It has never let me down and I have always been made offers of amazing positions.
There are fewer bible references that Florence’s other books (remember, it was written in 1928!) but she does tend to use religious references in the affirmations. Affirmations are all about creating something that resonates with you so changing ‘God’ to ‘ the Universe’ or ‘a Divine Power’ will do the same thing.
Almost all of the affirmations are easy to remember and roll around in your mind throughout the day. Florence advises us to ‘Choose the affirmation which appeals to you the most and wave it over the situation which confronts you. It is your magic wand, for your word is God in action’. And if that isn’t inspiring enough she emphasises ‘Nothing is too good to be true. Nothing is too wonderful to happen. Nothing is too good to last’.
I never fail to be inspired and comforted by the loving affirmations in Your Word Is Your Wand.
