Esther Hicks Teaches How To Use Attraction And Intent To Create A Better Life

Esther Hicks, along with her husband Jerry Hicks, has written several top selling self help books based on the Law of Attraction. Her teachings are inspired by a non-physical entity called Abraham.

Esther Hicks falls short of calling her work channeled, but refers to it as tapping into a greater non-physical consciousness. Her material was gathered with the help of her husband, and before his death, the two of them worked side-by-side, writing and holding workshops based on the Law of Attraction as explained by Abraham.

In addition to helping her readers come to a greater understanding of how the Law of Attraction works, Esther Hicks also offers many practical exercises and tips that can be implemented to consciously create a desired life.

Background of Jerry and Esther Hicks

Esther Hicks was born in Coatville, Utah in 1948. She grew up in the small town without giving too much thought to the deeper aspects of life but was filled with appreciation for all that life had to offer. She married Jerry Hicks in 1980 and her life took on a new direction. Jerry was always seeking answers to life's mysteries. He grew up in poverty and was sickly as a child. He had aspirations of greatness and led an interesting life that included being a circus performer, singer, boxer, and radio host.

By the time he met Esther, he was a millionaire entrepreneur. He credits his eventual success in life to reading Napoleon Hill's book, "Think and Grow Rich." After their marriage, Esther Hicks began her own journey into the powers of the mind and took up daily meditations. After about nine months of the practice, she encountered the Abraham consciousness. The pattern developed where Jerry would ask questions of her while in the Abraham consciousness state. The answers they collected were recorded into various teaching formats including best-selling books.

Jerry and Esther Hicks traveled the country and world and held live sessions and workshops in order to spread their teachings based on the Law of Attraction. Jerry passed away on November 18, 2011, but Esther Hicks continues to hold workshops, and has stated she feels Jerry's presence is still with her, and continues to guide her from the other side.

The Teachings of Esther Hicks And Abraham

The lessons offered by Abraham and Esther Hicks are often referred to as the Abraham-Hicks teachings. They are based upon the Law of Attraction as outlined by early teachers in the New Thought Movement.

The basic tenet is that individuals create their own realities with their thoughts, therefore, if one can control his thoughts, he can create any type of life he desires.

The self help advice offered by Esther Hicks often includes practical steps that can be followed to train the mind to hold onto desired thoughts. Esther Hicks explains how emotions and intent are often overlooked, but critical factors to being successful with attracting desires.
More than just attracting, Hicks helps readers deliberately create their desired lives.

Some other teachings by Esther Hicks include:

• The purpose of life is to attain freedom and joy.

• People are physical manifestations of the non-physical universe.

• People choose to enter their bodies as a physical manifestation and can leave at will.

• Everyone creates with his or her thoughts, and emotions drive the creative thoughts.

• The Universe is supporting and loving, and good things will flow to people if it is allowed rather than blocked.

• Death is only the end of the physical manifestation, but life itself is everlasting.
