The 2012 harmonic convergence predictions. At first, Abraham shrugged these speculations off as useless because, according to the Law of Attraction, we will get what we attract at the time, and nothing can be predicted in advance.
Later, pressured by true believers in their New Age audiences, they fell into the harmonic convergence line and talked about new knowledge and awareness in the world today that would lead to great change in 2012. Popular demand engendered new truths, it seems.
By the way, none of the big changes ever occurred. Wrong again, Abe.
Wisdom, if viable, doesn’t need all the marketing and image control used by Abraham-Hicks. It’s getting to be as if Jesus were pitching pricey sandals and offering to lead pilgrimages for a fee.
In a nearly ghoulish twirling of Jerry’s cancer into a marketing tool, Abraham Hicks on July 7th, 2011, sent out an email blast with this exact wording:
“We so much appreciate all the inquiries and love that you have been sending our way and we wanted to give you a quick update.
“We’re going to fly to Del Mar on Monday for the next phase of our rebalancing act in getting Jerry back on his feet and feeling frisky. Every day we’re experiencing the relief that we can only receive from Abraham as they remind us about the power of the Vortex. We are enjoying the comfort when we are able to ignore the temporary what-is.
“Abraham recorded a wonderful segment for Jerry last night guiding him toward complete comfort and ease, and that is exactly what he is focusing on now. We’ll continue our city-to-city workshop schedule as posted, which means that we’ll be enjoying the company of our friends in San Francisco on Saturday, July 9th. If you’d like to join the generally frisky Frisco workshop group, you can call the office before 4 p.m. CDT on Friday (830-755-2299). The last San Francisco workshop was filled to capacity, so a phone reservation would ensure that we won’t run out of chairs.”
They didn’t even enter a paragraph break between the news of Abraham recording a segment, whatever that might be, probably a workshop rehearsal tape, for Jerry and the pitch for tickets. This isn’t illiterate as much as it is Freudian.
In twenty-five years, wouldn’t these “eternal beings”with direct access to the “Source,” or supreme being, have come up with one original, really useful idea? I’d have been happy with a simple cure for the common cold.
(Nathan again, commenting below, implies that Abraham did provide a cure for the common cold. Right. My mistake. Here it is: Don’t think about colds and you won’t get one. How did we all miss that for so long!)
“Move over, Jerry, we’ve got tickets to sell.”
Abraham has never come up with a new idea. Esther and Jerry just took techniques developed by Seth and Theo, with both of whom Jerry and Esther were very familiar before Abraham arrived, and blended in ideas from the “New Thought Movement.”
Abraham’s “hot seat” conversations with attendees are entertaining and sometimes enlightening, but they never break new ground.
I’m not saying they don’t occasionally come up with something fantastic, but something useful and objectively observable would be nice. Most of us would love to have what Esther preaches be true. Well, not the animal abuse stuff, but a lot of it.
How about telling us how radiation or toxins cause cells to become cancerous? Gold star for Esther, if she can peg that one.
Fourteen: Abraham’s teachings are simple. There has been nothing new in decades, except for exercises and concepts like “the Vortex.”
But like a jalopy without brakes, the machine keeps rolling from seminar to seminar as long as cash is available.
Is this what one who professes to be as wise and all knowing as Abraham would do? Why not give it away?
So, why keep pumping out new products and cruises when there is nothing more to say?
It’s only fair to assume that an entity with the wisdom and access Esther and Jerry Hicks claim for Abraham would be thrilling. For many of us, they once were, but here’s a recent entry from their Vortex writings:
Fifteen: Thudding boredom and marginal literacy have entered the realm of Esther, Jerry and Abraham Hicks.
I Can Attract Relationships That Agree with My Desires… People are not finding it difficult to find the mate of their dreams because that person is not out there, but because of their own contradiction to their own desire in the thoughts they offer about the subject every day.
When you consistently offer thoughts about your future relationship that feel good while you think them, that means you are consistently matching the desires that you have discovered as you have lived life. And under those conditions, only someone in agreement with your desires could come to you. Under those conditions, no need for control is necessary.
Through each exposure to interacting with others, you launch continuous rockets of desires of what you prefer. And only when you are a Vibrational Match to the culmination of those desires will you allow your rendezvous with someone who matches those intentions that you have gathered along your physical trail.”
Excerpted from the book, The Vortex, Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships # 80
Anyone who can read that through without dozing off has my admiration. Who thought anyone claiming so much wisdom could be such an infinite bore?
Sixteen: Abraham-Hicks baffled by string theory…
You’d think an entity claiming access to all the wisdom the world has ever known would be able to comment on a popular scientific thread that might bolster some of their claims, but no. According to a recording supplied by a friend who prefers to remain anonymous, Abraham doesn’t even know what the best known theory for explaining the existence of the universe is.
Simply, Superstring (commonly known as just “string”) theory tries to explain some of the peculiarities of quantum physics and how it fails to match up with relativity by proposing extra dimensions and constituents of matter that make the quantum world appear as it does.
Abraham, after hearing a man describe himself as a “recovering physicist” and make a simple explanation of what string theory was supposed to do, politely listened as Esther explained that going back in time was a waste, seeming to see string theory as something to do with evolution, which, of course, we already know she hasn’t a clue about.
If Esther Hicks is going to continue faking Abraham, she’d do well to read some newer books and stop looking at herself in the mirror while counting ticket sales.
