Ask and It Is Given is a book written by Esther and Jerry Hicks who channel
the wisdom of a group of beings from another dimension who are collectively called “Abraham.”
It could be considered The Bible for the Law of Attraction and also the foundation of The Secret.
“It is our desire that you
become one who is happy
with that which you are
and with that which you
have—while at the same
time being eager for more.
That is the optimal creative
vantage point: To stand on
the brink of what is coming,
feeling eager, optimistic
anticipation—with no feelings
of impatience, doubt, or
the receiving of it—that is
the Science of Deliberate
Creation at its best.”
~ Esther and Jerry Hicks
“Every thought vibrates, every thought radiates a signal, and every thought attracts a matching signal back. We call that process the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction says: That which is like unto itself is drawn.”
In short, what you put out in the world is what you will attract…and I have to say that I really am starting to understand this in the deepest sense of the meaning. As I recall, after my dearest Mom passed away several years ago, I went through a debilitating depression, and my attitude literally went to shit, it was probably the worst couple of years of my life, about as depressing as when I went through the divorce of my parents in my very early teens…11-13 about, and moved around 6-7 times between aunts and uncles and grandma.
In retrospect, most of my thoughts were dark and negative, with the occasional suicidal thought kicking in, I was also quite medicated at that time and was attracting more crap into my life, for example I went through a number of employment opportunities, went through a divorce, losing the house, living in the middle of the city, in a crappy and very loud neighbourhood… I actually came close to hitting rock bottom, when a great employment from home opportunity came my way, great pay, much freedom, nearly a perfect job…but again my mindset was not yet cleared from the debilitating effect that the death of my mom had on me, and thus could not keep the position, and was clearly on a path of Self-Destruction…
I finally kicked my bad habit and found a new Love in my Life, and my mind started healing at that time…I managed to cut one of my worst habits, Smoking, and started following my bliss, via Network Marketing, and working from home, and studying the personal development and spiritual greats!
Soon after, I found another great opportunity to promote personal development videos, but I was still in the process of growing, and thought, yes the Law of Attraction is great, and learning is great, but I still had an Itch that laid dormant for a number of years, and that was to develop spiritually, as I truly believe, we are in a transitional era or period for humanity, and we only have a short number of years to get society back on a better track, or we will fall into this ever-deepening hole we have been digging since the beginning of the industrial age…
The only way out of this current ‘impasse’ is by living a deeper, more meaningful life, thus I started my Shift Happens, Awakening page on Facebook, and my Spiritual/Life Coaching practice via the same page: Please like Shift Happens HERE.
(deleted by Facebook… follow me here instead:
I also have my newer business and inspirational page here where you will be moved to live out your purpose here on Earth: Pursue your Purpose, make sure you like it!
And so here we are in January 2015 when I will be mixing up my blog posts on the Law of Attraction and Success, and Finding your Purpose, and Passions, and living from the Heart, and from a place of Love, and not Fear, like society and the media are trying to get you to live by, so you remain a docile, zombie-like consumer…
So now back to the book…
ASK AND IT IS GIVEN
The authors discuss the point of being visionaries, when you control your destiny via your thoughts, and do not allow outside circumstances affect your attitude or emotions, this is when you are THE MASTER of your life!
When you remember that ‘Happiness is an inside Job’, and that no outside circumstances can make you truly happy you have the Visionary mindset, and you are always thriving, no matter what kind of economy your in, or political system or neighborhood.
A big theme of the book is the fact that our feelings are a wonderful guidance system to check in and see how closely aligned we are to Source Energy (or Spirit, the Tao, God, whatever you call it!).
The idea behind this image is to always feed the emotions going up the Spiral and when you are feeling lower emotions, realize why, and if you can change the situation, do it, if you cannot, change your mind about the situation, these are the only two options for you to keep thriving for newer and more powerful emotions and vibrations, to bring you ever closer to Source!!!
YOUR NEW JOB
“Your work is to simply determine what you want.”
I love that. Quick question for you: What do you want?
“As you are moving through such a day, you will feel the power and the momentum of your intentions building; you will find yourself feeling gloriously invincible; you will feel as if there is nothing that you cannot be, do, or have as you are seeing yourself again and again in creative control of your own life experience.”
~ Esther and Jerry Hicks
Do you have a journal? No? Well, time to start one, it could be a gratitude journal, but you could start writing what you want in it! What you want to be and what you want to do.
Go on, get started now!
CAN YOU IMAGINE?
“If you have the ability to imagine it, or even to think about it, this Universe has the ability and the resources to deliver it fully unto you.”
So, if you’re taking notes, it goes something like this:
- Get clear on what you want.
- Know that you wouldn’t have the desire if you/the Universe didn’t have the ability to bring it to life.
- Joyously and enthusiastically do the next little thing in front of you.
—> Diligently, patiently, persistently follow 1-3, and you’re bound to be successful!
“Appreciation of others and the appreciation of yourself are the closest vibrational matches to Source Energy of anything we have ever witnessed anywhere in this Universe.”
The more you appreciate everything in your life, the more you will attract what you are appreciative of!
Wow, this is the HEART OF THE LAW OF ATTRACTION, and take note, the MOST IMPORTANT PRACTICE YOU CAN HAVE IN YOUR LIFE TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED OF!
Esther and Jerry have 22 processes to keep you connected to Source as much as possible, let’s go over some of the more interesting ones, for the rest…well, you can get the book ;).
The best way to get what you want is to FOCUS, at all times, so not wanting everything at once, but prioritizing or segmenting your desires and wants, and a to-do list or goal setting is ideal for this, but make sure it comes from a place of Joy and Appreciation for Maximum effect, following the Law of Attraction.
When you do this, you will feel the Energy of the Universe flowing through you and energize all of your actions, from the time you get up in the morning to the moment you lie down to sleep at the end of your day.
What a concept, so Appreciation brings you Joy and Happiness, which then brings you in tune with the Universal Law of Attraction, which then brings you all of your hearts desires!!!
