About the Author

Excited about the clarity and practicality of the translated word from the Beings who call themselves Abraham, Esther and Jerry Hicks began disclosing their amazing Abraham experience to a handful of close business associates in 1986. Recognizing the practical results being received by themselves and by those people who were asking practical questions and then applying Abraham’s answers to their own situations, Esther and Jerry made a deliberate decision to allow the teachings of Abraham to become available to an ever-widening circle of seekers of how to live a happier life. Using their San Antonio, Texas, conference center as their base, Jerry and Esther have traveled to approximately 50 cities a year since 1989, presenting interactive Law of Attraction workshops to those leaders who gather to participate in this expanding stream of progressive thought. And although worldwide attention has been given to this philosophy of Well-Being by Leading Edge thinkers and teachers who have, in turn, incorporated many of Abraham’s Law of Attraction concepts into their best-selling books, scripts, lectures, and so forth, the primary spread of this material has been from person to person—as individuals begin to discover the value of this form of spiritual practicality in their personal life experiences. In November 2011, Jerry made his transition into Non-Physical, and now Esther continues to conduct the Abraham workshops with the help of her physical friends and co-workers and, of course, with the Non-Physical help of Abraham and Jerry. People are able to access Abraham directly by attending the seminars in person or by participating in the online live streaming of most events. There is also an extensive YouTube library of Abraham videos. Abraham—a group of uplifting Non-Physical teachers—present their Broader Perspective through Esther Hicks. And as they speak to our level of comprehension through a series of loving, allowing, brilliant, yet comprehensively simple essays in print and in sound, they guide us to a clear connection with our loving Inner Being, and to uplifting self-empowerment from our Total Self.

I'm a writer (that's my book below) and a practicing hypnotherapist, and I love Abraham's and the Hicks' work for its clear, crisp and clean accessibility. If you are new to this kind of work, this is the perfect place to start. This book can help you learn to attract your own joyful exuberance, connect to your purpose and attract the money you need, too!

If you are new to the "Law of Attraction" than this is a great book to start with. It starts off a little strange and may even scare some readers off. The pessimist will have a difficult time with the first few chapters and may not make it that far, however, for those who are looking to change their lives for the better, this is your book. Once I got past how Esther and Abraham came to know and communicate with each other it was hard for me to stop reading. Many questions I've had throughout my life have been answered just by reading this book. If you're looking for a book to change your attitude to more of a positive one this book is excellent, but it goes far beyond that. I would dare anyone to read it and prove what is written to be wrong.

In The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham, Jerry and Esther Hicks speak of this powerful, consistent law that when you get a sense of what your vibration is, and when you pay attention to the way you feel so you can feel how much of who you really are you are focusing in this moment, then you will never again be uncomfortable or surprised about anything that happens to you, or to anyone else. No one else is keeping you from anything that you want. There is not an agency, not a parent, not an influence, there is not another -- nothing can prevent you from the fulfillment of your own desires -- only you. And only you can do it through offering a vibration that is not in alignment with your desires. And, your emotions are telling you in every moment whether or not you are allowing or resisting, whether or not you are in alignment or misalignment with your own desires. By understanding The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham, and more importantly, understanding the way you feel, you'll discover your creative abilities. There is nothing that you cannot be or do or have there is nothing that you cannot reach for and achieve -- and there is nothing that needs to take a long time to come to you. Pay attention to the way you feel. And make your essential, determined stance be that you're going to make the best of things. No matter where you are, you're going to make the best of it. Now repeat that to yourself. Other's will discover, through their exposure to you, their own joy. You never teach anyone anything by pointing out what they're doing wrong and then trying to discipline them into doing something that you believe is right. All you do is distort their awareness of the only guidance that will ever be of any value to them. Jerry and Esther Hicks do an amazing job explaining The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham. There is one fundamental principle for you to attract your desired goal. It is your feelings. It is not thinking, but feeling what you think about that bring success to your desire or bring failure to what you fear. As a man think in his heart, so is he.

..I was confused as to why certain events kept happening to me, and none of the known to me religions, or philosophies were helpful. And then somebody suggested I checked out the Law Of Attraction. As skeptical as I was in the beginning, I promised myself that I'd give it a chance, and listen to the CD's with an open mind. I was surprised to see that regardless of my skepticism, and putting aside where this information came from and the manner it was delivered in, it sure puts the pieces of my puzzle together. It is the first philosophy that made sense to me. And the Practices offered in the CDs worked on my toughest challenges, even though I did not expect them to. This CD-set is a life changer for me.

I recommend that you read this book first before any other of the Esther Hicks, Jerry Hicks books. This book explains the foundation of which all other Hicks' books are written. This book is easy to read, clear and specific. If you really want to be happy, understand your life and others around you, this book will give you the answer.

This series requires an open mind and a desire for personal improvement. It has much to offer for an intelligent and inquisitive person. Limited thinkers and those with little or no insight will miss the mark here.

Overall, this is a good book. I enjoyed The Secret by Rhonda Byrne way better. Nonetheless, this book is motivational, inspirational, and theraputic in a spiritually conscious way. I believed in the Laws of Attraction prior to reading this book. Therefore, this book only provided me with another angle of the same view.

The premise that we are in charge of our destiny is one of the most liberating premises in our existence. The Law of Attraction not only declares this premise, but teaches us the tools needed to make it a reality. There are countless examples of the Law in action and seen to fruition in addition to inspiring those of us that are willing to believe to incorporate these Laws into our lives. I absolutely recommend this book to everyone.

About a month or so back I decided that I wanted to purchase some good new material to listen to while I drive around throughout the day. That decision prompted me to stop off at my local Barnes and Noble and pick up The Law of Attraction CD Collection by Esther and Jerry Hicks. I have to say, this CD collection has DEFINITELY been worth the money. For those of you who don't know who Esther and Jerry Hicks are, they are the "authors of numerous books based on the Teachings of Abraham." Abraham is basically a group of non-physical entities that speak through Esther and discuss such topics as your emotional guidance system, how your thoughts are creating your reality, how to get in tune with your non-physical source, how to get what you want from life, how to decide on what you want, and much much more. It's been around a month since I purchased these CDs and I now just finished them. They really do give you a lot of bang for your buck. The package is thirteen CDs in length and is only $39.95. As I said before, I would listen to the CDs while driving my car. This was an easy way for me to get through the material while growing and improving each day. Also, as the CDs have such a positive message, I would feel good going throughout my day applying what I would learn. The CDs are the audio version of the following three books by the Hicks: "- Ask and It Is Given: The Law of Attraction: You'll come to understand how your relationships, health issues, finances, career concerns, and more are all influenced by this Universal Law; and you'll realize that it's your birthright to live a life filled with everything that is good! - Ask and It Is Given: The Processes: A series of 22 Processes assists you in reconnecting with the "Non-Physical" part of yourself, which will help you achieve anything you desire. As you apply these Processes, your naturally joyful zest for life will be reawakened! - The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham: This is the series of recordings that launched the basic Teachings of Abraham. You'll see how all things, wanted and unwanted, are brought to you by the Law of Attraction (that which is like unto itself, is drawn)." I would DEFINIELY recommend these CDs to anyone who is looking for some good material to improve their life. The content is A+, explained clearly and logically, and can be implemented right away for good results.

Finally, a book that answers lifes questions. For years I tried to find the answers in schools and churches. What a waste of a life. If you have questions like, "why am i here, whats the point or purpose, etc.", and you are sick and tired of hearing, " it's a mystery!, Nobods knows!" than I STRTONGLY recommend this book. It will show you how to unleash the power you have inside of you. Some people would rather keep the blindfold on, and believe there are no answers, and that you cannot control what happens to you. I am not one of them, this book not only changed my negative attitude and outlook on like, but it also hepled me realize what I want, how to get it, and how to make things happen. It changed who I am, because now I know the point, and the object of this game called life.

Once before, this book had put me in what I call the Abraham 'zone' and after awhile I had forgotten how to get there. I'm back to reading this awesome book, and I'm very excited to experience the wonder and joy again! YAY!

Long before the film and book phenomenon The Secret, Esther and Jerry Hicks were teaching the Law of Attraction. The Law traces back to Biblical times and states that you create your own experience in this lifetime through your thoughts, beliefs, and expectations. Compiled into one volume, The Law of Attraction provides the basics of the teachings of Abraham, a non-physical spiritual entity that Esther Hicks claims to channel from the astral realm. Regardless of your belief in channeling, the information provided in The Law of Attraction is time-tested, accurate, and immensely uplifting. The book opens with brief essays by Esther and Jerry, explaining how they came to understand the Law and how Esther first became a channel for Abraham. Every great idea and occurrence in the physical realm started as a thought. If you want something as part of your experience, you must think that you will have it, expect to receive it, believe that you will receive, and then allow yourself to receive it. The Law works for both wanted and unwanted things, so you must guard your thoughts carefully and focus only on those experiences or things you want to have. Creativity is the greatest divine gift to humanity, and Abraham explains that those who have found material prosperity in this life are more adept at understanding the Law of Attraction and using it to their advantage. The teachings of Abraham may be difficult for those raised through traditional orthodox religions, especially the Catholic faith. Reincarnation and mysticism are dealt with directly and undoubtedly. Additionally, some may find it difficult to accept the more challenging concepts included here. Abraham suggests that illness, crime, and even sexual assault, while not necessarily intentionally manifested, are all the result of a consciousness of fear. Per the teachings, the world's most devastating conditions along with the most debilitating of human ailments can be healed with a shift in consciousness and belief. The Law of Attraction is one of the most written about topics in modern new age and metaphysical literature. Proven time and again, one would be wise to understand various perspectives of the Law, shift toward an attitude of positivity and expectation, and create his or her own life experience. Unfortunately, Esther and Jerry Hicks lean toward the materialistic side of the Law, as do many modern metaphysical texts, including The Secret. More spiritual texts discuss the manifestation of material abundance as a natural byproduct of giving generously and living life as an evolutionary process through positive thought. The Hicks texts suggest that by focusing on the material (money and cars being discussed frequently), those objects will become manifest. The Law of Attraction, while lacking in spirituality, serves as a fascinating and thorough introduction to the Law. A resource that can be referred back to time and again so as to maintain a positive attitude of expectancy, success, and abundance, it is a valuable addition to any self-help or metaphysical library.

I am almost blind in my left eye, which makes reading very difficult. The CD version worked best for me. This was the very first book on the law of attraction, and I believe that it is the best. Listening to Abraham was hearing a message from the Angels, or God. Unless the book is totally fake, without years of positive meditation, and connecting to the other side, this is as close as it gets to hearing the real thing. I highly recommend it. I also recommend in CD, The Best of Doreen Virtue

There is no religious dogma associated with this book. The authors have "connected" with a group consciencenous and if you can get by this the message is worth hearing. This group, "Abraham", gives explanations/causes/guidelines/practices regarding our reason for life here on Earth and how to enjoy who we are and make the most of it. There is no requirement to drop existing beliefs; however, this group consciencenous, "Abraham", is telling us that our focus and rewards should be in the present. We should be happy about obtaining our rewards before we die and not after, loving yourself first conquers all and suffering never enters the picture unless we want it to. Orthodox positions don't fly here. It is a very positive book and if you widen your religious horizons and take them all the way to the cosmos and drop most of them off there and not get too stuck on terminology you will find base similarities to a lot of denominations/religions that suggest that if you have a good heart, wish and look for the good in others and situations, be positive about life in general, stay focused and don't live by default - you will go far.

I read this book expecting to find a different view on how to see things. Instead I found this book to be really strange and kind of creepy! Transitioning into someone like a spirit is weird. I have a hard time believing this could truly happen.

The main character of the book - Abraham - was too unbelievable and/or mystical for me. The advice given by this mystical/mythical character is not revolutionary in any sense - just elaboration on common sense. I had asked a loved and respected family member to recommend a book appropriate for an 18 year-old, and this was recommended. After reading the book I did not recommend it to the 18 year-old in question. The Abraham character puts a lot of emphasis on intense concentration on anything you really, really want - an idea that I did not feel was particularly helpful. I would not recommend this book, particularly to an 18-year old.

The ideas presented in this book are both old and new, since they have been echoed in different forms for hundreds of years. They are new because the Hicks express the idea of prosperity thinking in a unique voice - this book is after all channeled material. If you feel that you have a unfulfilled dream, goal or desire in that you really, really want to achieve then this book is for you. The question I have is does it work? Well it's difficult to answer that. Certainly the positive mental vibrations that are created from reading this book can only help you.

The Law of Attraction is expressed in the simplest terms in this book which is an ongoing dialog between Abraham, a channeled guide, and the author, Jerry Hicks. Abraham speaks through Esther Hicks with simple teachings. The Law of Attraction is described as 'like attracting like.' So the frequency of your thoughts whether positive or negative attract more of the same vibration to you. By becoming conscious of our thoughts and our beliefs, which are repeating thought patterns, we can gain mastery over our lives. So we are attracting the essence of our thoughts in our lives. This book defines success in a unique way: Success can be measured by our achievements but the authors recommend that we measure it by the joy in our life as the standard of success. Material possessions or stuff in our life alone fails to bring joy instead joy brings the highest value on its own not our collection of stuff. This is an important distinction. Overall I would rate this as an excellent book on personal empowerment. I would only caution people in not taking Law of Attraction to an extreme as the book does when it argues that a victim actually attracts the robber. This is basically blaming a victim and from a moral perspective this is wrong. We need to instead focus on compassion for ourselves and others. If the Law of Attraction is used to justify attitudes that are non-compassionate then the Law may give some measure of success at a personal level yet it may fail in our responsibility as human beings. We need to grow in character and in our heart not just in our thoughts otherwise we will reinforce the duality of mind and heart.

Why in the world would you write a book that starts out with a story about the Ouija Board??? Not sure why this needed to be included in the book. It takes away from the wonderful content right off the bat. The world has been taught for many years that the Ouija Board is nothing but EVIL. I read the other book, 'Ask and it is given,' and my thoughts were the same. I just cant figure out why you would dilute such positive content. And perhaps this is the very reason Esther and Jerry Hicks are not referenced in the book, 'The Secret'
