After Jerry Hicks died,Esther Hicks, after a few months of fumbling for direction, aggressively reinvented the platform. Abraham-Hicks2.0 takes a look at the changes.
In an earlier article, I asked the question: Does Jerry Hicks Death From Cancer Mean The End Of Abraham-Hicks? It should have, but it didn’t. Reality won out over the wish, although in a diminished and less charismatic way.
The renewed Esther is flashier than the one lead around by Jerry, but Jerry’s dynamic was one of a kind, impossible to duplicate.
A transition from the original Abraham took place once already: when money and fame came rolling in.
During that transition, a member of the traveling party got a call from Esther late at night after a workshop.
“They gave me a standing ovation,” she cooed proudly.
Abraham, the first star of the show was already being shoved aside by 2005.
Esther and Jerry Hicks publicly shared the news of Jerry’s illness in the spring of 2011. It seems likely that he was ill longer than they admitted. Jerry, a small man, was down 15 pounds already.
With her husband sidelined and no longer providing intros and support for the Abraham-Hicks workshops, Esther Hicks began to take liberties Jerry Hicks had not allowed her, discarding her decades old barefoot country preacher garb for a flashy new set of clothes. The clothes aren’t astonishing in a normal context but for the previously dowdy, sexless Esther Hicks, they were.
With the real brains of the works gone, Abraham (as presented by Esther Hicks) soon showed that she had never been the smart one. Adding to a list of already questionable “insights,” Esther explained to an anxious mother that she should not be worried about her sons unwillingness to share toys.
She compared the brat to Jesus who, according to Esther, did not waste time worrying about other people’s “toylessness,” leaving listeners to wonder what Jesus she might have been talking about.
Then, she topped it. She rebuked the same mother for trying to stop her son from kicking their cat. The cat, Esther bluntly explained, was teaching the child.
I’m not making this up.
Later, in a strange riff, Esther had Abraham spouting the virtues of copyright protections.
Followers had copied her online workshops and shared them over the internet. This disrupted the flow of moneywisdom.Abraham-Hicks Publishing operation filed a lawsuit, something Abraham-Hicks 1.0 said was never a good idea.
Contradictory as this was, Esther went on to top even that.
Abraham-Hicks 2.0 In Full Bloom
The skeptic behind Kyra Speaks predicted Esther would come up with something “adorable” to mark Jerry Hicks death.
It still surprised us when, in her first trip back on stage, she channeled him. Jerry returned as a merry quipster in the middle of the spiritual preaching by Abraham.
In twenty-five years of workshop appearances, Esther always claimed that the one-hundred “nonphysical entities” that made up Abraham spoke in a single voice. Blocks of thoughts she received in trance were translated. Never had a single entity, not even Jesus who she claimed was one of them, spoken independently.
Then, Jerry did.
And not only that, he treated Esther and her audience to a witty comment, after which she announced, “That was Jerry.”
True, she’d alerted attendees that Jerry just might appear, but here, Abraham-Hicks 2.0 got launched. There was no turning back.
In following workshops, Esther stuffed Jerry back into silent mode, but she took a turn toward cult development…
Here is an unforgettable quote, posted on the Abe Forum:
“And we would like to speak on behalf ofSeth, and God and Jesus and Buddha and all that have come before, and take it one step further into clarity and say that all of us from non-physical are having this moment.”
Now, she speaks on behalf of God, Jesus and Buddha…?
