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
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
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.
