One of the blogs we frequent regularly is 22C+, Marcus Anthony’s blog.
Marcus is the author of several books on synchronicity (Sage of Synchronicity, Extraordinary Minds), and is also exceptionally intuitive. We respect his opinion – as an author, a teacher, a sage, a powerful intuitive, and a guy who holds a doctorate and is well versed in the mysteries of China and Asia. Versatility is his middle name.
So when we discovered his review of the Abraham/Hicks book, The Law of Attraction, we read it with great interest.
For those of you have been living under a rock, Esther Hicks channels a consortium of souls who call themselves Abraham. While channeled material can be a trickster in some New Age disguise, this is not the case with these books – and Marcus tells you why.
The Abraham/Hicks material is the logical extension of the Seth books, channeled by Jane Roberts from the late 1960s to the early 1980s. These books – more than 20 of them – detail the nature of reality and either speak to you or don’t. The Abraham material contains basically the same message, but is takes things much farther in a practical sense, which is where the Seth books fell short. Many people distrust channeled material, but the Seth books and the Abraham/Hicks material have always felt genuine for us.
The Hicks use technology to its fullest and their newest addition is virtual workshops. The first such workshop occurred on Saturday, April 9, in Phoenix, with 44 countries and 44 states in attendance (interesting numbers!) It was much less expensive than their in-person workshops – $75 versus $195. And since the three of us watched it, the cost wasn’t bad at all. For three hours, individuals from the audience came forward to the “hot seat,” the best and most insightful part of these workshops. In each instance, the questions and concerns of the individual in the hot seat encompassed larger questions about money and prosperity, love and romance, creativity, and about the nature of the “vortex,” your vibrational escrow built up throughout your life.
One thing I took away from this virtual workshop was Abraham’s advice about moving in vibrational increments. He used the example of the Panama Canal, where ships move through the locks in increments that gradually raise the ship 85 feet above sea level. In much the same way, we raise our vibrational frequencies incrementally until we’re a match for whatever we’re trying to manifest in our lives.
“Nothing changes until there’s an emotional shift,” Abraham told one man. “The vortex can’t – won’t – take you in prior to your readiness. The vortex reveals to you what you’re ready for.”
Abraham, like Seth, said that if you want to know what your vibrational frequencies (Seth called it your deeper beliefs) are manifesting, take a look around you, at everything in your life, especially at those parts that work. And then express your appreciation. One activity he suggested was listing your 10 favorite things about your life. Megan then remarked you can take that activity even deeper by choosing one of those favorite things – your partner or child, for example, and listing 10 favorite things about that person. Abraham suggested doing this any time you feel you’ve fallen out of the vortex.
Some other nuggets from this virtual workshop:
– compliment when you can, but never when it’s forced
– get in the flow
– complain never
– Creation is the discovery of what you’ve already created
– Take manifestation out of it (the equation) and focus on what you feel. In other words, don’t keep checking in to see if what you desire is starting to manifest. “Just let it be, have faith in what is not yet seen. Chill.”
Last year when Megan and I attended an actual workshop, it was difficult to tell whether Esther channeled the entire time she was speaking. In the virtual workshop, I noticed that as each individual approached and sat in the hot seat, Esther seemed tuned in. Even if she isn’t channeling constantly (and I frankly don’t understand how anyone could channel for three hours, even with breaks), she’s exceptionally psychic.
Ultimately, though, the source of the message matters less to me than the message itself, and the Abraham message is identical to Seth’s: You create your own reality. You get what you concentrate on…there is no other main rule. And the bottom line is that when you walk out of a Hicks workshop, in person or virtually, you feel empowered. All your resistance to prosperity, health, happiness, is gone. You are one with what Luke Skywalker called The Force, what mystics call Indra’s net, and what Abraham calls the vortex. Regardless of the terminology, you emerge knowing that all of us really are spiritual beings in a physical existence.
