About the Authors Esther and Jerry Hicks:
Esther Hicks is an American spirit channeller, and author. She has co-authored four major books with husband Jerry Hicks and presents seminars for Abraham-Hicks Publications. Esther Hicks is the channel for a group of spiritual teachers who call themselves "Abraham". Most commonly, this work is referred to under the name Abraham Hicks The "Abraham" teachings "affirm our well-being and help us to recognize the power of joy in achieving all that is desired in life." They also teach that people are the creators of their own reality, that their emotions are guides to help in this creation and that humans are eternal beings and for that reason will "never get it done."
In the development of the Abraham material, Esther and Jerry Hicks were deeply influenced by the Seth books by Jane Roberts (such as Seth's "you create your own reality"), to which the Abraham material bears a similar philosophical message on some topics, though a distinctly more upbeat and motivational tone.
A key teaching of the Abraham Group is that achieving your desires is done by feeling hopeful and positive about those goals, rather than fearful. The teachings often refer to vibrations - in the nature of, your thoughts are 'vibrations' that influence the 'vibrations of reality,' and in this way have a real impact on the physical word. To summarise, if you think positive thoughts, and so align up your good vibration, good things will happen to you. Equally, if something bad happens to you, then in some sense it was your own doing, because you must have aligned up your bad vibration to encourage or endorse it.
The Abraham Group's views on parenting is an approach of non-intervention, hands-off, and with as few boundaries as possible - in that children should be allowed to develop as their inner being directs them. If a person sees a child doing something that the viewer belives is better not done, he/she should concentrate on the best in the child rather than punishing the child, or forcing rules upon the child.
The Abraham Group's views on the detrimental effects of aging, is that these effects, like everything else, are also controlled by your 'vibration' or your 'way of thinking,' so a person who is truly harmonious and in tune with themself will cease to have any cellular degeneration.
When the Abraham Group is speaking through Esther Hicks, like other channelled entities such as Kryon, a lot of analogies are used to describe complex life situations.
Together Esther and Jerry Hicks have authored several books, including Ask, And It Is Given., which has become a best-selling book published by Louise Hay's Hay House publishers, which has an introduction by author Wayne Dyer.
Their books include three children's books titled Sara (books 1-3), Ask And It Is Given, and a newly released book titled The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent. They have also released a deck of Abraham "Well Being Cards". Their output over the past 20 years has been extensive and includes over 800 audio and video tapes on various issues.
