Esther and Jerry Hicks
This is 3rd book in The Law of
Attraction series and has been highly anticipated
across the Abe community via the forums and
other social networking groups.
In the past twelve months Abraham via Esther
and Jerry Hicks have been using the words "The
Vortex" to describe that place where the
physical you is matched to the vibrational you
and the Law of Attraction is its most powerful.
At times I have struggled to understand
the meaning of the Vortex and so was keen to
jump into the book and read, only to be halted
in my tracks. My mind was reading the words
okay but the meaning was not sticking. I would
find myself at the end of a page with no recall.
In analysing what was going on I found that
often Abraham uses double negatives to grab
attention. My reading mind was not coping so
I sat with pen and paper and for the first chapter
summarised the paragraphs in my own words. The
more I read the less I needed to write notes,
now the language style was working well.
This is not a book to skim. The
message is very powerful and stated really well
in chapter one "You will never find yourself
in a point in time when the subject of relationships
is not an active part of your now experience,
for everything you perceive or notice or know
is because of your relationship with something
I found as I was reading that
I gained a deeper appreciation of my physical
self's relationship to my non-physical self
or higher being. Abraham states that "there
is no relationship of greater importance to
achieve than the relationship between you, in
your physical body, right here and now, and
the Soul/Source/God from which you have come.
If you tend to that relationship first and foremost,
you will then, and only then, have the stable
footing to proceed to other relationships."
Every conceivable type of relationship
is covered and to list them in this page would
be to write the index! Most sections are a question
and answer format, similar to how their workshops
run. Without a doubt each section had a gem
of wisdom for me. I found myself adjusting how
I related to my world and the people in it both
present and past.
The final section is all about
"Self Appreciation" and includes some
great exercises to move your emotional feeling
state into your vortex. The bedtime visualisation
is a modern version of the ancient Tibetan Buddhist
practice of reviewing the day with gratitude.
As a bonus the book has
a CD with recording of an Abraham-Hicks Art
of Allowing Workshop. It is great and something
to listen to over and over again. My own experience
was that listening lifted my emotional feeling
state and brought me closer to my vortex.
Profile Jerry and Esther Hicks began,
in 1986, disclosing their Abraham experience
to a handful of close business associates. Then,
recognizing the practical results being received
by those persons who began plying Abraham with
meaningful personal questions regarding their
finances, bodily conditions, and relationships,
the Hickses made a conscious decision to allow
Abraham's teachings to become available to an
ever-widening circle of seekers.
Jerry and Esther have now published
more than 600 Abraham-Hicks books, CDs, cassettes,
DVDs, and videos, and have been presenting open
group interactive Art of Allowing workshops
in up to 60 cities a year to those who gather
to participate in this progressive stream of
