Jerry and Esther Hicks’ Spiritual Money Tree
Stories Behind the Abraham-Hicks Teachings and the Law of Attraction
Reviewed By: David Stone on February 10, 2015
I wrote Jerry and Esther Hicks Spiritual Money Tree after a long period of indecision. Although I’d written a lot about them before, a printed book with a Kindle version take it to another level. While I didn’t want to be seen as tearing down a popular spiritual teacher, I also didn’t think the Abraham-Hicks operation should continue getting the free pass they get from places like Wikipedia, where they cowed an editor into misrepresenting what they do, and the New York Times, where a fanning article was an embarrassment to journalism.
Jerry and Esther Hicks Spiritual Money Tree, Stories Behind the Abraham-Hicks Teachings and the Law of Attraction is 72 pages in the print version ($7.99). The Kindle sells for $3.99 or free to prime members.
- For the first time, an objective and thorough review of the Abraham-Hicks Teachings as posted on the web.
- The story of how Abraham butted into Jerry and Esther Hicks lives, all three conflicting versions, is covered in detail.
- Jerry Hicks’ death in 2011, from leukemia, is a striking example of New Age dishonesty and obfuscation, so concerned were they over how to explain it in context of their decades of teachings.
- Other examples are discussed, such as Esther Hicks advocacy of animal abuse, that suggest extreme caution over becoming involved with this spirit channeler and alleged inspirational speaker.
Truth Matters, Even with the New Age
Because so many people who look into New Age gurus for spiritual solutions are already vulnerable, scrutiny is more important than ever. Reading this book, you may find the Abraham-Hicks operation, not just something to avoid, but also dangerous and reckless in pursuit of profits over insight.
Jerry and Esther Hicks Spiritual Money Tree, Stories Behind the Abraham-Hicks Teachings and the Law of Attraction is pointed overview of the claims of a New Age spiritual guru, something surprisingly lacking mainstream media.
About the Spiritual Money Tree
It’s not part of my mission to speculate about Jerry and Esther Hicks motives in creating their workshops, books, recordings and other products that leverage the century old idea of a law of attraction.
What I’ve done is break down three specifics features with opinions not influenced by wishful or magical thinking. As a one time follower of Esther Hicks and her channeled Abraham persona, I’m in a unique position to see it from both sides, objectively.
I take a long look at the conflicting stories Esther and Jerry Hicks tell about how Abraham forced their (Abraham is a group.) way into their lives. How they publicly handled Jerry Hicks’ illness and death, which their website still does not acknowledge, is instructive. But most of the pages are taken up with a point by point look at the 12 Abraham-Hicks’ Teaching posted on their website. This is where the train goes way off the tracks and adds context to all the follows.
If you care about the credibility of inspirational or spiritual teachers, read this book. All many people need to write off New Age spiritual awareness is exposure to the exploitive underside that shows how easily the vulnerable can be manipulated and mislead. You will be convinced to steer clear of this moneymaking operation on the edge of becoming a cult.
