Who is Abraham?
Because I quote Abraham so much here, it seems wise to introduce those who aren’t already familiar with this invaluable law of attraction resource.
Abraham is a non-physical entity channeled by Esther Hicks. Abraham describes themselves (they use the plural, not the singular) as “a group consciousness from the non-physical dimension.”
Esther has been channeling Abraham for over twenty years and together they’ve created an enormous collection of material to support deliberate creators.
I personally consider Ask and It Is Given (by Abraham-Hicks) as the “bible” of law of attraction. There isn’t another source that rings more true for me. But that’s just me.
Not everyone is a fan of Abraham. And that’s perfect – we each have a different resonance with different material.
I remember the moment I knew Abraham was for me. I read the sentence from Ask and It Is Given that said, “You are not here to fix a broken world” and I felt something shift inside me. I mean, I felt physically altered. It’s like my body cells heard the truth and were changed by it.
Because I prefer to give credit where it’s due, you’ll find me quoting them regularly.
Not because I think everyone should listen to Abraham, or because I think they’re the ultimate source of all perfect and true information (that would be your OWN inner guidance you want to go to for that), but simply because I don’t want to pass their teachings off as my own. That’s all.
Lots of folks who share material about manifesting (including me) learned most of what we know from Abraham-Hicks. Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Lynn Grabhorn, Andy Dooley and Oprah, among others, have been open about their enthusiastic embracing of Abraham’s teachings. In others it’s easy to spot (Martha Beck, Harrison Klein, Marci Shimoff).
Notable exceptions: Mike Dooley. Deepak Chopra. Gregg Braden. They’re manifesting heavyweights, but don’t seem to be plugged in to this particular resource.
Abraham isn’t the first to deliver this kind of material. Some folks are more familiar and comfortable with Seth, Theo, Orin and DaBen or Napoleon Hill, Wallace Wattles, Florence Scovel-Shinn – not to mention Jesus and Hermes Trismegistus and other early proponents of our power to create reality.
Abraham is also referred to as Abe, Esterham, Abraham-Hicks, and probably some other nicknames I don’t know.
Esther and Jerry Hicks’ website is http://abraham-hicks.com where you will find lots of info and Abraham resources, including DVDs, CDs, cruises, books, online workshops, and more.
There are facebook groups, yahoo groups, online forums, YouTube videos and meetups all based on mutual love of Abraham.
Abraham is not without critics, and not everyone is comfortable with “channeled” information, but like I said, it sure floats my boat.
And that is who Abraham is. 🙂
