BOOK NERD : Kickass Quotes From Ask And It Is Given by Abraham Hicks (by way of Esther & Jerry Hicks)

I think of Esther Hicks as the Queen Bee of the modern Law Of Attraction movement.

The Law Of Attraction is nothing new and it has gone by many other names in the past, Science Of Mind, New Thought, The Mind Cure, and, I would say... Magick. 

What Esther Hicks (and other modern thought leaders like Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer) has done is make it relevant today.

I know it is The Secret and Oprah's endorsement of it that really pushed LOA into the mainstream, but I don't think that would have happened without the work of Esther & Jerry Hicks, the married duo responsible for recording the messages supposedly channeled from a collective entity known as "Abraham" & lovingly referred to on the web as "Abraham Hicks".

(Did you know that Esther was in the original cut of "The Secret" and then later asked to be removed?)

You can find countless recordings of Esther channeling Abraham on Youtube, and I highly recommend doing so. But- for me, it will always be about one simple, powerful book, Ask And It Is Given : Learning To Manifest Your Desires.

I have chosen to credit Abraham rather than Esther Hicks for the following quotes out of respect to both her & her beloved partner, Jerry, who passed over a few years ago.

You don't have to believe in channeling to get something out of these messages. Perhaps Esther was just channeling the wisdom of her own higher self or tapping into the collective consciousness? Does it matter?

What matters to me is that my life has been improved by the messages and they have opened my eyes to the magick all around me and the magick we all hold within...

  "Appreciation and self-love are the most important aspects you could ever nurture." -Abraham Hicks 

"When someone looks at you, they see you with their eyes and hear you with their ears, but you are presenting yourself to them, and to the Universe, in a much more emphatic way than can be seen or heard: You are a vibrational transmitter, and you are broadcasting your signal in every moment of your existence." -Abraham Hicks

"Yes, when you ask, it is always given, but you must be in vibrational harmony with what you are asking before you can let it in to your experience." -Abraham Hicks

"You ask through your attention, through your wanting, through your desire- that is the asking (whether you desire it to happen, or you desire it to not happen, you are asking...) You do not have to use your words. You just have to feel it in your being: I desire this. I adore this. I appreciate this, and so on. That desire is the beginning of all attraction." -Abraham Hicks 

"The basis of life is freedom, and the result of life is expansion- but the purpose of your life is joy. And that is why the main event has never been the manifestation. It has always been the way you feel in the moment." -Abraham Hicks

"You are supposed to thrive. You are supposed to feel good. You are good. You are loved, and Well-Being is constantly flowing to you, and if you will allow it, it will manifest in all manner of ways in your experience." -Abraham Hicks 

"A cluttered environment can cause a cluttered point of attraction. If you are surrounded by unfinished work, unanswered letters, incomplete projects, unpaid bills, unattended-to tasks; unsorted piles of paperwork; and stray magazines, catalogs, and all manner of miscellaneous items- they can negatively affect your life experience." -Abraham Hicks 

"Your emotions let you know, in every moment, whether you are allowing your connection to who you are or not. When you allow your connection, you thrive. When you do not allow your connection, you do not thrive." -Abraham Hicks

" the same way that you utilize your five physical senses to interpret your physical life experience- you were born with other sensors- your emotions- which are further vibrational interpreters that help you understand, in the moment, the experiences that you are living." -Abraham Hicks  

"Your desires and your beliefs must be a vibrational match in order for you to receive that which you desire." -Abraham Hicks 

"If you are feeling a strong emotion, whether positive or negative, that means that your desire is powerfully focused, and you are summoning a great deal of Source Energy toward your desire." -Abraham Hicks

"Your dreams are manifestations of your vibrational point of attraction, so you can evaluate your dreams to determine what you are really doing with your vibration. Your dreams are sort of a sneak preview of that which is to come, so if you evaluate the content of your dream, you can often determine what your point of attraction is, and then if you do not wish to live out the dream you have been dreaming, you can do something about changing it." -Abraham Hicks 

"With only a few seconds of focusing your attention on a subject, you activate the vibration of that subject within you, and immediately the Law Of Attraction begins to respond to that activation." -Abraham Hicks 

"There is no shortage. There is no lack. There is no competition for resources. There is only the allowing or the disallowing of that which you are asking for." -Abraham Hicks 

"Your motion forward is inevitable; it must be. You cannot help but move forward. But you are not here on a quest to move forward- you are here to experience outrageous joy." -Abraham Hicks
