I first read this book when I was 12 or 13 years old and it blew my mind. I resonated with everything so deeply that I immediately started following and implementing The Teachings of Abraham.
The Law of Attraction by Abraham Hicks is a book written by Esther Hicks, who channels a collective of energies named Abraham.
If you’ve heard of Law of Attraction or Abraham before and are familiar, or if this is your first time hearing about it, read below for a quick summary about this book!
What/Who is Abraham?
Abraham is a collection of energies that a woman named Esther Hicks channels. Abraham talks through Esther and shares all of this wisdom and teachings.
I know it might seem a little weird or unfamiliar at first, but I firmly believe that we can communicate with energies and the highest beings that are not from this ‘physical’ world.
If that makes you a little uncomfortable, that’s alright. However, don’t let this stop you from picking up this book and seeing what it’s about. The information is insightful, many other spiritual teachers who don’t channel talk about these same things, and that’s all that should matter.
It’s beautiful, eye-opening, and thought-provoking.
I actually got to see Esther Hicks/Abraham in person in the spring of 2018, when I attended their workshop in upstate New York.
When Esther got on stage, I began to cry. It’s tough to describe, but I was overwhelmed with love and joy. I’ve been following these teachings for 10 years. I grew up with them, I lived and breathed them and shared them with everyone that I knew. Therefore, seeing her in person after all these years was very special.
What is the Law of Attraction?
The Law of Attraction says: that which is like unto itself, is drawn.
If you feel happy and joyful, you will create more of that in your life. If you feel angry and resentful, you will create more of that in your life. However, LOA (Law of Attraction) is not just about thinking good thoughts and thus receiving good things.
It’s also about how you are feeling and who you are being. Feelings are the by-product of our thoughts, and feelings create powerful vibrations in our body and our energetic field. Therefore, the stronger the feeling you have — the stronger the magnetic power.
Think good thought — feel good — attract more of what will make you feel good.
“Everything in your life and the lives of those around you is affected by the Law of Attraction. It is the basis of everything that you see manifesting. It is the basis of everything that comes into your experience. An awareness of The Law of Attraction and an understanding of how it works is essential to life on purpose. In fact, it is essential to living the life of joy that you came forth to live.”Abraham
It’s Real and it Works
Call it what you want, but this stuff works. As I mentioned, I’ve been applying this in my life for 10 years. Whether it’s manifesting a romantic partner, a specific amount of money, a dream apartment, or another material thing — I’ve done it.
More importantly, I’ve observed many people live their lives without knowing this law and wonder why nothing was going their way.
When I lived in New York, I had a roommate that was very negative, pessimistic and would complain about anything and everything. Without surprise, life was reflecting all of this back to her.
She would lose her keys or wallet, run into bad situations, always get caught in traffic, would be late constantly, have disappointing interactions with people, be unsuccessful in finding a job, and so on.
Because life was reflecting how she was being, what she was feeling, and what she was thinking, that made her complain even more!
‘This always happens to me, people suck, I hate this, I hate that, everything is bad, I’m so unhappy.’
She said: everything sucks
Life said: ok, if you say so
The 3 Universal Laws
In the book ‘The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham,’ Abraham explains that there are 3 Universal Laws.
- The Law of Attraction
- The Science of Deliberate Creation
- The Art of Allowing
These 3 laws are what make manifestation possible. (Also, these three laws are the reason why you get what you get in life.)
The Law of Attraction says that everything that happens in our lives — we attract. In short: like attracts like. Your thoughts and feelings are magnetic.
The Science of Deliberate Creation explains that “You get what you are thinking about, whether you want it or not.“ It teaches you to become aware of what you think, so you can start manifesting consciously. Thus the science of deliberate creation and not accidental. 😉
The Art of Allowing is all about allowing these manifestations to come through. Not worrying, not ‘blocking’ them from coming, not resisting. Simply trusting that they will show up and creating room for them.
There is a thing that Abraham calls ‘The Vortex.’ I’m going to do my best to describe what it is, but if you want to really understand it — read the book!
The Vortex is a place that you cannot see, touch, smell, taste, or hear. It’s an invisible place where all your desires, wishes, and wants are. Everything that you desire is in the Vortex.
That car, job, relationship, friendship, promotion, apartment, vacation is in The Vortex. Everything that you want already exists, and it’s just sitting there in this magical place, waiting for you to allow it.
I love thinking about my desires in such a way. The perfect job that I want already exists, the partner that I want already exists, the amount of money I want to make already exists — all I have to do is to allow it to show up.
Abraham explains that we often get in our own way with our negative thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. It’s not that life is mean to us, it’s not that we are not deserving of having something — it’s merely that we’re not allowing it in!
We’ve closed the door to manifestation because we keep being negative and angry, and that’s the whole reason why we can’t get what we want.
All the things that we want and desire are high-vibe. We, however, often are low-vibe.
If we only raise up our vibration and eliminate the resistance, we’ve opened the door into the Vortex, and all that we want can begin to come in.
Think Of It In Terms Of a Radio
If you turn on the radio and set it to 96.7 FM, you expect to receive music from 96.7 FM! You can’t set the radio to 96.7 FM and receive music from 82.9 AM; the signals don’t match!
In the same way, you need to ‘tune yourself’ to the signal of your desires. All that you want and desire is always high-vibe. I mean — the reason you want those things is that you believe you will feel good when you receive them. Dream relationship! Dream job! So much goodness!
Therefore, you can’t be all low-vibe, negative, and frustrated if you want to manifest the things that you know will make you feel oh-so-good.
Think better thoughts, feel better, become happier and joyful — and your desires will start flooding in.
Read it, Try it, Apply it
I hope my passion and love for this book, and these teachings, shined through. I honestly can’t recommend this book enough. Whether you’re new in the Law of Attraction world or not, definitely don’t miss out on this gem.
Whenever I feel down or low-energy, I always pick up this book and turn to a random page. It’s a constant reminder for me of how good life can be, and that I truly have the power to manifest everything that I want.
Life is as good as we allow it to be.
