If you’re interested in learning more about the Law of Attraction, one of the best teachers you can learn from is Abraham Hicks. You won’t see Esther and Jerry Hicks on Rhonda Byrne’s movie The Secret, but that’s only because Esther and Jerry did not want to take part in the project. They were initially approached by Rhonda Byrne, but they felt that The Secret did not go into as much depth about the Law of Attraction as they wanted to explore. Indeed, Esther and Jerry Hicks take the Law of Attraction further than The Secret, and they are excellent teachers if you’re ready to learn how to make the Law of Attraction work for you.
Esther Hicks was born in Coatville, Utah in 1948 and married her husband Jerry in 1980. Jerry lived a long and wonderful life. Jerry was a traveling musician for 20 years, a circus acrobat in Cuba and when he met Esther, he was a successful Amway Distributor. Jerry died November 18, 2011 after a battle with leukemia. At the time, he was 89 years old.
They toured the U.S. for several years giving workshops on the teachings of ‘Abraham,’ which is described as a group consciousness from a non-physical dimension. The teachings are referred to as those of Abraham Hicks.
Among the teachings that Esther Hicks continues to share today are:
You are a physical extension of the non-physical.
You are here in your body because you choose to be.
The basis of our lives is freedom: The purpose is joy.
You are a creator, You create with your thoughts.
Anything you can imagine is yours to be, to do or to have.
As you choose your thoughts, your emotion is guiding you.
The universe loves you and adores all your intentions
People should relax into their own beings, for all is well.
You create your own thoughts on this path to joy.
Actions to be taken and possessions to be exchanged are products of a path to joy.
You can leave your body without illness or pain.
You will never die, life is everlasting.
Most Abraham Hicks workshops are centered around the law of attraction. Law of attraction was first written about in 1906 in the book Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World written by William Walker Atkinson.
According to Esther and Jerry, Abraham is a group of entities that Esther interprets for. Esther says they’re “infinite intelligence” and Jerry was known to say they are “the purest form of love I’ve ever experienced.”
Esther and Jerry Hicks co-authored several New York Times best selling books such as The Law of Attraction, Ask and It Is Given, and The Teachings of Abraham: The Master Course CD Program, 11-CD set.
