Esther and Jerry Hicks

Esther and Jerry Hicks

“While it does, and should, feel good to be appreciated by another person, if you are dependent upon their appreciation to feel good, you will not be able to consistently feel good, because no other person has the ability, or a responsibility, to hold you as their singular, positive object of attention. Your inner being, however, the source within you, always holds you, with no exceptions, as a constant object of appreciation. So if you will tune your thoughts and actions to that consistent vibration of well-being flowing forth from your inner being, you will thrive under any and all conditions.”

“When you offer a vibration, the Universal forces are working in concert with each other in order to satisfy you.”

“When you give the credit or the blame to another for your success or lack of it, you are powerless to make any change.”

“When you focus on the good, the good gets better.”

“When you feel love or joy—or any positive emotion—you are literally being the expanded version that life has caused you to become. When you feel fear, anger, or despair—or any negative emotion—you are not, in this moment, by virtue of whatever it is that you are giving your attention to, allowing yourself to be that new expanded version; you are not letting yourself keep up with who you have become.”

“When you feel healthy and vital and alive and prosperous, you attract more of all those things.”

“When you expect something, it is on the way. When you believe something, it is on the way. When you fear something, it is on the way. Your attitude or mood is always pointing toward what is coming, but you are never stuck with your current point of attraction.”

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

“When you believe something is hard, the universe demonstrates the difficulty. When you believe something is easy, the universe demonstrates the ease.”

“When you ask, it is given, every single time, no exceptions. You are beloved, blessed beings who deserve good things—but it takes a self-convincing.”

“When you are feeling negative emotion, you are in a very good position to identify what you want. Because never are you more clear about what you do want than when you are experiencing what you do not want.”

“Whatever you’re thinking about is literally like planning a future event. When you’re worrying, you are planning. When you’re appreciating you are planning…What are you planning?”

“Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what is in the process of becoming.”

“What you think about activates a vibration within you.”

“What you focus on grows, what you think about expands, and what you dwell upon determines your destiny.”

“What you are living is the evidence of what you are thinking and feeling, every single time.”

“Use your imagination until your big dream feels so familiar that its manifestation is the next logical step.”

“The only thing that makes the difference in the way you feel right now is the thought that you are thinking right now.”

“The more you think of things that please you, the better you will feel. The better you feel, the better things will go for you.”

“The main event has never been the manifestation; the main event has always been the way you feel moment by moment, because that’s what life is.”

“The longer you focus upon something, the more powerful it becomes; and the stronger that your point of attraction is to it, the more evidence of it appears in your life experience. Whether you are focusing upon things you want or things you do not want, the evidence of your thoughts continually flows toward you.”

“Struggle, struggle, struggle never leads to a happy ending. It defies law. ‘When I get there, then I’ll be happy’ is not a productive mindset because unless you are happy, you cannot get there. When you decide to first be happy, then you will get there.”

“See them, visualize them, and expect them—and they will be.”

“Relief is the release of resistance. Relief is alignment with Well-being. Relief is the key to allowing your desires.”

“Reach for a better feeling thought.”

“Rather than being so ready to jump into action to get the things that you want, we say think them into being; see them, visualize them, and expect them, and they will be.”

“Not only does the power of your thought determine which people make their way into your life, but the power of your thought determines how they will behave once they get there.”

“No one is more qualified than you to set the standards for you.”

“Never face reality unless your reality is just the way you want it to be.”

“Make up your mind that nothing is more important than how I feel now, because now is everything. Now is the whole enchilada. Now is the power of me. Now, now, now, now, now. You might as well start somewhere, and it might as well be now. Why not start improving your life now, now, now?”

With practice, you will change your point of attraction and will experience a substantial change in your life experience.”

“In order for things to change, you have to see them as you want them to be rather than continuing to observe them as they are.”

“If you’re not excited about it, it’s not the right path. You will know your path by the fun of it.”

“If you want it and expect it, it will be yours very soon.”

“If you knew your potential to feel good, you would ask no one to be different so that you can feel good. You would free yourself of all of that cumbersome impossibility of needing to control the world, or control your mate, or control your child. You are the only one who creates your reality. For no one else can think for you, no one else can do it. It is only you, every bit of it you.”

The Introduction to Abraham

In the early 1980s, Esther and Jerry were inspired by a book by Jane Roberts, which featured channeling experiences with an entity named Seth.

This led them to attend a workshop by a channeler, where Esther discovered her own ability to channel. After a series of meditations, Esther began channeling a group of spiritual teachers who referred to themselves as “Abraham”.

Ask and It Is Given Book Summary

“Ask and It Is Given” book by Esther and Jerry Hicks is one of the cornerstone texts on the Law of Attraction. Here’s a summary of its content and ideas:

  1. Law of Attraction: The fundamental premise of the book is the Law of Attraction, which states that like attracts like. This means that what we focus on, whether positive or negative, we draw into our lives. Our thoughts and feelings act as magnets, attracting circumstances, people, and experiences that match our vibrational frequency.
  2. Emotions as Guidance: Emotions serve as indicators or guides to our alignment with our desires. Positive emotions indicate alignment, whereas negative emotions show misalignment. By being mindful of our emotions, we can redirect our thoughts to more positive ones and thus shift our vibrational frequency.
  3. The Creative Process: The book describes a three-step process to manifest our desires:
  • Step 1: Ask – Whenever we desire something, the Universe takes note.
  • Step 2: It’s Given – The Universe, or Source Energy, aligns things in response to our desire.
  • Step 3: Receive – We must be in a receptive mode (a positive emotional state) to allow what we’ve asked for to manifest in our lives.
  1. The Art of Allowing: This is the practice of being in a state of receptivity, where we let go of resistance and negative emotions, allowing our desires to come to fruition.
  2. Processes and Exercises: The second part of the book offers 22 processes to help readers improve their emotional and vibrational state, ensuring they are in alignment with their desires. These exercises range from meditation practices to visualization techniques, each tailored to different emotional starting points.
  3. The Role of Our Inner Being: The book emphasizes the importance of our “Inner Being” (or Higher Self) and how it always guides us towards our desires. It’s always in a state of well-being and abundance, and by aligning with it, we can achieve the same state.
  4. Universal Manager: The Universe, often likened to a “Universal Manager”, is always orchestrating events, circumstances, and opportunities to bring us what we desire. Our job is to be clear about what we want and then allow the Universe to deliver it.
  5. Limiting Beliefs: Many of us have ingrained beliefs that limit our potential and keep us from manifesting our desires. The book provides insights and processes to help readers identify and overcome these beliefs.

In essence, “Ask and It Is Given” teaches readers about the power of their thoughts and emotions to shape their reality. By understanding the Law of Attraction and utilizing the processes provided, individuals can lead a life of abundance, joy, and fulfillment.
