I first came across the name Abraham Hicks in a Louise Hay book. Louise referred to Abraham as “one of the best teachers on the planet today.” An attention grabbing statement and as a long time student familiar with many great teachers this really stimulated my interest to discover more. I had never heard of this Abraham guy? What could I be missing that might be of value? As I would soon discover ‘mind-blowing’ and out-of-this-world lessons and information that would profoundly and radically positively change the course and quality of my life! I would later discover that we would meet face to face … and you can hear what was said at the end of this post …
My motivation in writing this post is to give you some insight and information to support you improve the quality of your life in some way too. When my interest and desire to learn more was initiated, I did some research and had a look at the Abraham Hicks website, watched some videos and invested in some books to discover my first revelation ‘Abraham-Hicks’ is not a ‘guy!’ …
From Wikipedia you will find:
Esther Hicks (née Weaver, born March 5, 1948) is an American inspirational speaker and author. She has co-written nine books with her husband Jerry Hicks, presented numerous workshops on the law of attraction with Abraham Hicks Publications and appeared in the original version of the 2006 film The Secret. The Hicks’ books, including the series The Law of Attraction, are — according to Esther Hicks — “translated from a group of non-physical entities called Abraham.” Hicks describes what she is doing as tapping into “infinite intelligence.”
Wow! “Infinite intelligence” !! … On YouTube you will also find hundreds, if not thousands of uploaded videos and recordings on just about any subject you can imagine. Esther Hicks is listed #26 on the 2017 list of ‘The 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People.’
So what? … and why am I reading this you may be asking?
If you are familiar with the law of attraction, you know why you’re reading this … there are no accidents that you are reading this! You have attracted it into your experience. If this is all new to you and sounds a bit mystical or nonsensical, stay with me … believe me I understand, but it’s really no more mysterious than the forces of electricity or gravity. Whether we believe in these or not, we will land on the ground if we jump from a great height and get an electric shock if we connect with a live wire.
The law of attraction is not ‘The Secret’ as the title of the hugely popular book and film suggested. Science has confirmed we live in a vibrational universe and this is the foundation for understanding its effects and forces.
There are a lot of powerful invisible forces on planet earth and in this universe. Some can become visible to the eye like light (rainbows and prisms); sound (pulsating speakers); magnetic fields (iron filings around a bar magnet); electricity (lightning); tornados (swirling dust). We also have gravity; emotions like love and fear; the law of attraction; radio waves; and thoughts. Yes, thoughts! We can experience these forces in different ways using our range of senses.
I recently had the great privilege and pleasure to attend a series of workshops hosted by Esther Hicks. If you have attended one yourself or have watched some video footage from one, you will know that she invites questions from members of the audience. Once selected by way of her pointing to you if your hand is raised, you are then invited to what she calls ‘the hot seat’ where you can ask any question. No questions on any subject is off limits …
As Esther ‘tunes in’ with ‘Abraham’ she has the amazing ability to translate this communication with incredible clarity for us to understand. When I refer to Abraham I say, “it’s like listening to the voice of the Universe.” Just the way I think of it that makes sense for me. Esther calls it, “non-physical source energy.” We are all extensions of this non-physical energy manifested in human form in this vibrational universe.
As a human being you are less than 1% physical
I talk about this fact a lot with my clients and in my courses and seminars. People are often very surprised to learn that if we look at the 50 trillion or so cells that make up a human body and magnify them, we discover that there is very little physical form. We are 99% formless! You may at first think of this as empty space. However, it has been described as chi (Chinese); ki (Japanese and part of the word Reiki); mana (Hawaiian); prana (East Indian) … Albert Einstein called it ENERGY. This is not merely ’empty space’ but the bigger and by far largest aspect of a human being which responds to vibration … including thoughts and the law of attraction.
All of this just made perfect sense to me and provided a lot of answers as well as great comfort and relief with the understanding and answers to some questions I believed were unanswerable or unprovable. Surprisingly, I felt as if I already knew much of what I was reading and learning! Questions and answers that always feel totally plausible and that you often cannot get verified anywhere else.
Being invited into the ‘hot seat’ is an amazing experience. Although as I sat there looking at and communicating with Esther, I was aware that through her I was connecting with this “universal intelligence.” This realization as I initially sat down literally took my breath away. It was a very powerful and moving experience … and many things had to come into alignment for this connection to come about.
Why do I consider it ‘amazing’ to be invited into the hot seat? In my case it was on the very last day of a series of workshops spread over 10 days. I would estimate there were over a thousand people in the audience and at each workshop many hands were raised in the hope of being invited into the hot seat to ask a question.
At the opening of the first workshop following her incredible welcome and introduction, Esther/Abraham says that all questions will be answered by the end of our gatherings. Even though I was very familiar with her work, I looked around and scanned all the people in the audience and wondered how this would be possible? So many people with questions to ask in a limited time. She promises that no question will be left unanswered.
This is how it works. Either you get to ask your question from the hotseat or someone else will be invited up who will ask a version of your question. So it does get answered one way or another. This amazed me and that wasn’t the only thing … She says that she chooses people from the audience vibrationally. She sees as she describes it, a kind of ‘energetic spike’ above the person with their hand raised. This translates that they have no doubt that it is them. As Abraham puts it, “there is no resistance and no doubt.” Can you relate to that feeling at some point in your own life? You just somehow knew it and it manifested in your experience. We all have this ability and all we have to do is allow it.
I was very clear on my question and had it written down in my notebook from day one. By the very last day of the series of workshops my question had not been asked. Just before going in to take our seats, I said to my girlfriend, “today’s the day.” She said, “what do you mean?” I said, my question has not been asked, so either I’m asking it today or someone else is… I had no doubt. I could feel the certainty. Sure enough … about half way through the final day after raising my hand again (as I had done many times at each workshop every time someone vacated the hot seat) … This time, I was invited up to ask my question.
Someone has uploaded part of my question and Abraham’s incredible answer to Youtube and you can hear it by clicking the link below …
Just before you do… The whole purpose and intention of this blog post is for you to hear something very important that I hope supports you and empowers you. I believe we all instinctively know this but we are often influenced in ways that instil doubts and fears. It makes sense for me and I hope it does for you too.
We have incredibly sophisticated and intelligent physical bodies which are always working on our behalf. Although this clip is titled “Castles and buttons” it has nothing to do with either. It’s just an analogy. I hope the answer you hear confirms something you may have had doubts about and will give you relief from concerns that may be negatively affecting you or someone you care about.
