ESTHER HICKS AND JERRY HICKS
“Look around less, imagine more.” This famous quote by Esther Hicks sparks not only our curiosity but also tells us a lot about some sort of divine intervention that made her write this magical line. But who are Esther and Jerry Hicks? What makes them so special and such a novelty to the self help industry?
Esther Hicks and her late husband Jerry Hicks were a married couple whom are famous for their inspirational speeches and self help books, all of which include the secrets to life explained by Abraham. Together, the couple have written 9 books. Some of those titles include Ask and it is Given, Law of Attraction, Law of Attraction: The Basic Teachings of Abraham, and The Vortex. They also hold seminars and
So now this brings us to the big question. Who is ABRAHAM?
Abraham is what Esther and Jerry Hicks call the knowledgeable consciousness that Esther’s own consciousness shifts into when she relaxes and allows her full consciousness through. Abraham is not an entity. In it’s own words it calls itself non-physical consciousness, source energy, vibration and thought. Because it’s not an entity, it calls itself they. And again, in Abraham’s own words, they are a purer form of the energy that is Esther. And since everyone can do what Esther does, when this same energy comes through you, then it would be a purer form of the energy that is you. What this means is, they are our own consciousness, only in it’s purest form that doesn’t have any resistance that keep us from being that which is a vibrational match to source.
This explanation comes from this interview of Esther and Jerry Hicks where Esther allows Abraham to come through.
Abraham, himself, has also said through Esther that, ”Whenever one feels moments of great love, exhilaration, or pure joy, that is the energy of source and that is who Abraham is.”
How was ABRAHAM BORN? Where did he come from?
Although Abraham comes through Esther the initiation of the idea of him came from Jerry Hicks. He was a man with many questions about religion, spirituality, and the non-physical, jumping from one religion to another in the 60’s. He even dabbled with experimentation of Ouija boards, which Esther wanted no part of. In fact, it wasn’t until 1983, when the couple read the book called, Seth Speaks, a book written by a consciousness that came through a human, that Esther started to come around and lose her fear of the non-physical and unexplainable. After the couple read the book together they became so infatuated with the idea of an all-knowing consciousness that they tried to contact the author of the book. That didn’t work out, however, what we focus on we get and Jerry still had driving questions that needed to be answered, so certain stream of coincidences lead them to meet another consciousness, named Theo. Theo gave Esther and Jerry some valuable advice to meditate daily which inevitably leading to the birth of Abraham – first with him speaking only via typing through Esther, and later through her voice.
In 1986 Esther and Jerry began sharing Abraham’s teachings in books, audios and workshops where people are able to come and speak to Abraham, and thus have given indispensable contributions in development of this new thought process called the law of attraction. Several of Abraham’s teachings are as such:
- We are physical extensions of the non-physical and we are in these bodies because we chose to be.
- The basis of your life is freedom, the purpose of your life is joy, and the result of your life is expansion.
- Don’t fee bad about having negative thoughts because we need them in order to have desires for something better.
- It is only the body that is mortal not the individual.
- Individuals are the source of this universe and not only a part of it.
- People are the creators of their destiny; they do so with their thinking.
- Life is not meant to be a struggle but the process of allowing.
- There is no such thing as a coincidence or an accidental accident.
- The reason for life is joy
- Even negative emotions can be helpful because they tell us what we’re thinking so we can identify it and therefore change it.
Among source energy, vibration and thought, Abraham is also infinite intelligence. Esther explains that everyone has the ability to tap into Abraham. No matter what it is you want to know, no matter what it is you need – we all have the capacity to find the answers we seek. Every single answer to every single question that has ever been asked and will ever be asked is already within us. We know everything and that is our Abraham. This is what makes everything possible. Whatever problems you come across can be remedied by allowing the answers you need to float to the surface of your consciousness.
For everyone, all of our own versions of Abraham has all the exact same information because no matter which one of us it’s coming through, it is all the same thing and comes from the same place. It is God. It is spirit. It is source energy. The only difference there is between this information coming through you or it coming through Esther Hicks is exactly that. It’s either coming through you or it’s coming through Esther, and that is the only difference.
Overall, the teachings of Abraham are very much the same as the basics of the law of attraction. Whether you believe in Abraham or not, few can argue that these books written about the law of attraction written as the teachings of Abraham by Esther and Jerry Hicks are some of the best law of attraction books ever written. Here are several books by Esther and Jerry Hicks that will help you immensely in your law of attraction journey.
