The Law of Attraction
by Esther and Jerry Hicks
After The Secret came out, the Law of Attraction got lots of attention. If you’re not familiar with this law, you may want to read an article I wrote on manifesting. Unfortunately, manifesting our intentions is not quite as easy as The Secret DVD may have implied. The biggest problem is when our desires don’t manifest quickly enough, we get disappointed and return to negative thinking, blowing the whole process.
This book, The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham, contains many steps and techniques for overcoming the blocks that we create. These techniques help us move towards thinking more positively, so we can manifest more positive things into our lives. Heck, if all these techniques did was to help us think more positively, they’d be worthwhile. My experience, and a very basic understanding of quantum physics, tells me they can do much more.
One of the suggestions that resonated most strongly with me is to meditate. According to Abraham “meditation is a withdrawing of your focus from the physical conscious world, and an allowing of your focus to align with the Inner World.” In the higher vibration spiritual plane (Inner World), manifesting is instantaneous. For those of us living in the physical plane, spending time in those higher vibration states does speed up the process. If you don’t meditate regularly, here’s another good reason to start.
If you’re wondering who Abraham is, Abraham is a group of advanced beings from that higher vibration spiritual realm. The beginning of the book covers how Jerry and Esther Hicks first came into contact with Abraham and went on to develop a relationship with spirits that wish to help those of us struggling through lives on earth. Together, Abraham and the Hicks have created more than 700 books and recordings, in a variety of formats. My favorites of their books are this classic and Ask and It is Given.
