Everything is valid and everything is truthful, because Law of Attraction
lets everything be. The question is not whether it's right or wrong,
whether their approach is right or wrong, or whether my approach is
right or wrong. The question is: Does their approach feel good to me?
And if it doesn't, then I choose a different approach. ~ Abraham
When I first heard Abraham via Esther Hicks, words like these filled my heart with joy and I wanted to discover more about Esther and Abraham. Research opened my world to Jane Roberts and Seth and Sheila Gillette and Theo. A world which fascinated me and still does many years later. Meditation, although I knew about it, became something that I understood and enjoyed through Esther Hicks.
I discovered Esther Hicks and Abraham in the late 90's. I remember seeing one of the early books by Esther (I can't recall which one) and was quite freaked out about it. I didn't open it and quickly put it aside thinking it was "spooky", maybe even a little "evil". Wow, how time changes you. I then came across her again in early 2008 and although it sounds cliché, the Teachings of Abraham via Esther Hicks have changed my life...read more
Esther Hicks never had an interest in anything metaphysical, in fact she was afraid of the "devil" which she had learnt about in Sunday school. She was just a very happy child growing up in the Rocky Mountains giving little thought to much else other than being playful and having fun.
Then, in 1976, Esther met Jerry Hicks in Fresno via a friend of Esther's. Her friend had invited Esther to a business presentation given by Jerry. At this time, Jerry had been studying the book Think and Grow Rich and was very enthusiastic to pass on his knowledge...read more
A short time after being quite devastated about the news of Jane Roberts' death, friends and business associates of Jerry and Esther Hicks came to them with a recording that they wanted them to listen to. Their friends were acting a little strange so Esther asked them what it was about. They said it was channeled. Esther said "what do you mean?" As their friends started explaining what they meant about channeling, Esther realized it was the same process they had been experiencing via the Seth books.
Talking along the same vein, their friends advised them that there was a woman they could meet with and ask any questions they wanted. This woman was in contact with a non-physical entity, just as Jane Robert's was. Her name was Sheila Gillette and the non-physical entity was Theo. Sheila started communicating with Theo in 1969. Theo describes themselves as twelve arch angelic beings here to enlighten, teach and mentor humanity during this time of changing consciousness.

Even in today's world, I don't believe the majority of consciousness is ready to hear that humans can communicate with non physical entities...read more
The experience with Theo felt so good to Jerry and Esther that they went home full of eagerness and started to meditate. Esther had made a decision that she was going to meditate everyday for 15 minutes in order to find out who her spiritual guide was. In order to not think of anything and to focus on her breathing Esther began counting her breaths as they went in and out. After about 3-4 minutes of doing this, she felt a very numb, tingly sensation which she describes as wonderful. She enjoyed it so much that after the initial 15 minutes, she suggested to Jerry that they do it again.
Once again, it was a wonderful experience so they decided to meditate for another 15 minutes. Toward the end of the final 15 minute meditation, Esther says that a wonderful, loving, sensation, greater than her was "breathing" her. She describes it as a really exciting and wonderful feeling, but also frightening because she had no idea what was happening. This turned out to be Esther's first contact with Abraham.
It took Jerry and Esther Hicks 9 months meditating every day for 15-20 minutes before this first communication with Abraham...read more and see Abraham meditations.
The very first time Abraham used Esther to translate their message verbally was one day while Esther and Jerry were driving on a freeway in Phoenix. They were rounding a corner on the Interstate that's not very well banked and there were big trucks on either side of them whose drivers had both decided to cross into Esther and Jerry's lane at the same time. Esther said that it felt like they were about to be crushed and at that moment she felt something pull her jaw (similar to a yawn that you can't stifle) and the sensation felt like Abraham was about to speak. They did speak and their words were
"take the next exit."
They did take the next exit, parked under the freeway and Jerry talked to Abraham for the first time.
Esther made Jerry promise that he wouldn't tell anyone because it was
such a bizarre experience for her...read more
Esther says that when she receives Abraham it just feels like normal conversation. It doesn't seem like anything extraordinary is happening. It is only later when listening to the recordings that Esther is amazed at the intelligence that she has received.
When Esther first began translating Abraham, Jerry, through his extensive study into the metaphysical, knew without doubt that something of tremendous value was happening.It was Jerry's confidence in the process that inspired Esther to continue the work.
Esther says that is quite difficult to explain how she feels or where she goes when Abraham is present...read more
Today, Esther Hicks explains that she translates blocks of thought from "Non-Physical Source Energy" or "collective consciousness" - which she also identifies as her "Inner Being" or "Soul" - and who refer to themselves in the plural as "Abraham" (no relation to the Biblical figure). Fortunately, Esther no longer relies on typing Abraham's message, she is able to audibly speak their words.
