What's Up With Jerry Hicks | Good Vibe Blog

Jerry Hicks’ State of Health

Jerry Hicks with wife Esther Hicks, channeller of AbrahamAfter receiving more than a few emails from folks wondering what’s going on with Jerry Hicks, it’s clear this topic is on many deliberate creator minds.

Even though it’s none of our business, it’s not unusual to have questions about someone else’s experience.

Especially when it’s someone we look up to as an example of how to live.

To the extent we can learn from it, be inspired by it or feel better by looking, I am all for getting in someone else’s business.

Since we’ve learned from Abraham that disease is a result of our vibration, and we assume Esther and Jerry Hicks are pretty good vibration managers, it does naturally lead one to ask what’s up with Jerry Hicks.

Last Wednesday Jerry sent out out an email sharing these details:

On March 12 we slept next to the dock with many yachts from many different parts of the world in the slip right outside our window. The next morning I had a large welt on the inside of my wrist that looked like a spider bite.  It seemed to resolve itself as time went along forming a pea-shaped nodule on my wrist.

On April 18, I showed it to a dermatologist in Del Mar and she immediately decided to scrape it off and sent it in for a biopsy. We … heard back from the biopsy results that there was something amiss relative to my white blood cell count and she put us in touch with a dermatologist. The subsequent blood test showed my white blood cell count was extremely exaggerated and the physician insisted I undergo immediate treatment with no delay. He pointed out a number of options, one of them was to use the “big guns” (heavy chemotherapy) and so we decided to go along with that and checked into the hospital on May 6th.

We were swept up in such an obvious current of amazing “path of least resistance” events unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before. The strong feeling that we were proceeding in exactly the right direction continued as my response to these “big guns” was a week of no discomfort and none of the highly forewarned side effects. Everyone around us at the hospital kept speaking their surprise at my unusually comfortable experience. We are now in day 18 of a 28 day regimen of bringing my blood counts back into perfect balance.

Jerry plans to rejoin Esther at the workshops after he regains 15 pounds.  Read the full post here if you’re interested.)

From the notes I’m getting it’s clear that deliberate creators are wondering how Jerry was a match for this experience, when everything Abraham trains us toward would seem to steer us clear of something like this.

I’ll share my thoughts in the comments, which I invite you to do as well.  Together maybe we’ll better understand how this all works.

More importantly, and in keeping with the advice Lisa shared in her article on Maria and Arnold, I’m inviting everyone reading this to hold nice strong happy healthy pictures of Jerry.

Quoting a fellow creator:

“Feel free to think about me strong, whole and healthy, but for God’s sake if you’re feeling sorry for me mind your own damn business.”

Update: Jerry Hicks passed away on November 18, 2011. Read Esther’s note about it here.

    For those of us exploring these teachings, it’s nice to have a community of like-minded people with whom to exchange thoughts. Positive thinking is the basis of joyful expansion, so for all of us who will miss him, just remember the sound of Jerry’s voice on so many tapes doing his “Yee Haw!”
    Yes, he was a professional entertainer, with a powerful curiosity and a message to share. I read Napolean Hill’s book and realized that Jerry took and applied all of the tenets contained there and re-invented himself, many different times. We should all be so focused. I want to read his memoire. Such a life!
    Money, happiness, relationships and health. Jerry had them all. I’d say he was a success story and allowed as much into his experience as it was humanly possible to do. He did it all..and when you’ve done it all, you get up and leave the movie.
    See you down the road, Jerry! Love to Esther!

    From the Jerry Appreciation page:
    “Well, first we’ll say we really appreciate your disrespectful word of croaking, we like it very much, because there is no such thing as death….
    So, let’s get this straight in your mind. So what happens when some beautifully connected, physically focused human Being transcends into Nonphysical? In other words, lies on the pillow as you’re describing, and goes to sleep, and wakes up in the Nonphysical dimension and does not wake up in this dimension? What has happened?
    Did life peter out from them? No. They made another decision about where they wanted to focus their Consciousness. It is only the resistance that breaks your body down. And so, what you’re talking about is living in a good feeling, clear-minded, creative body for as long as this time/space reality will excite you and incite you and draw Energy through you. And then, at some point along the way, when you have discovered everything that you want to discover from here, you will make another decision.
    The reason that you do not remain in these physical bodies for hundreds of years, is because from your Broader Nonphysical Perspective, you want the eager new vantage point. You’re not coming for the younger, fresher, weller bodies. You’re coming for the fresher vantage points.”
    —Abraham in Seattle, Washington on May 27, 2000
    My own energy reading (from before I read the above quote) confirms that this is exactly what happened for Jerry. In addition to that, many tidbits that Abraham mentioned about Jerry over the last year (even before he got ill), pointed in that direction. It’s indeed the next logical step.

  • Carrie says:

    I was kind of surprised to hear about Jerry’s “transition” (leaving the body) like I would be about anyone I heard that I wasn’t in touch with or close to in some way. Of course, Jerry was in his 80’s. He just always seemed so vibrant and very much alive.
    Maybe he was tired. Maybe he had done whatever he wanted to do in this lifetime (body). And, going by the stories, he had led a long, very interesting and full life, and (with Esther and Abraham) had given so much to the world.
    Actually, it is very much in line with Abraham’s teachings that Jerry peacefully left form. He and Esther are still in touch, probably as continually as before, and it seems to be something they knew about and expected (himi being so much older than her)
    There are so many workshop tapes and CDs and Yuotube clips, that Jerry is still very much a part of.
    He seemed like such nice, sweet man (I always wondered when his birthday was, even though they made jokes about astrology signs, I wondered just out of curiosity. Though maybe he was a Sagitarrian, like me (LOL) All the questions and “young at heart”,open and honest and such. Esther, I found out, was early March, and a Pisces- which is aligned with psycic, “world of her oown” (Inner World) and such sign) Does anyone know what Jerry’s “sign” was?
    I never met them (2 of my daughters went to a workshop once and loved it) but always thought, if I got the chance I’d love to give Jerry a hug. Maybe I have, in spirit-.
    They have given so much to the world (for those open to it… and those that aren’t, well that’s okay, too. We are told to ALLOW all) and still will. Like the ripple effect. As some are saying, it’s such a good feeling, the idea that Jerry has left form and now in the non physical, finding out first hand, all Abraham has been talking about for all these years. And, in that way, it makes perfect sense that Jerry (at some point) would align with this, and allow it to happen.
    I’m sure for Esther, Jerry is very much part of her life, like before.
    It’s almost like the story of Jesus, who “died” to show us there is no death. Though, I suppose everyone who “dies” does this, too, if we believe in it.

  • Dawn says:

    Thank you Jerry. Thank you Esther. Thank you Abraham. No one’s passing has ever put me in the vortex like Jerry’s. What a wonderful feeling! Thank you for helping me to understand the death process just a little bit better than I did before. I feel so much love and appreciation right now in this moment. I know I’m in the vortex.

  • Ruth says:

    I don’t see a contradiction in Jerry’s passing and the Abraham teachings. The way I read this is that he decided at some level that his experience in this world of contrast needed to end in order to pursue different experiences, or going back to the Absolute, whatever may be. The fact that it seems an unconscious decision to us (because apparently he didn’t see it coming) does not render it invalid.

  • Lindah says:

    “WOWHOOOOOOOOOOOO” is all i can hear Jerry doing right now lol

  • krista says:

    Jerry is eternal like the rest of us, reemergence into non-physical with a “cancer” story is as insignificant as changing coats!
    Another expansion, experience, on and on and on………
    His interpretation is as intricate and unique as everyone’s is. To emerge into greater, broader perspective is not possible without contrast, to equate an experience of ill health as though someone was a victim of their lack of understanding is…..well….. not really getting how the entire Universe is evolving, not to mention the volumes of explaining over and over again Abraham has imparted.
    So Jerry just got the whole distinction of croaking,taking the bounce from feeling like sh…. to total and complete ecstasy!
    What a ride that’s got to be!

  • For those visiting this post looking for information about Jerry Hicks’ death, a note from Esther and many well wishes from deliberate creators across the globe can be found here:

  • Jackie P says:

    I am just totally confused. From the comments I have read, it seems like people thought that Jerry would never die if he followed his own teachings. He was a human being like all of us. We live in a physical world consciousness that has a begining and end. That is the deal about being in a human body. Instead of worrying about what it was in his vibration that led to his cancer, it is important to accept that there is a lesson in everything, and there are many factors that could have led to Jerry’s illness including age. Why Abraham-Hicks is sometimes seen as a cult, is that there seems to be an unquestioning belief among some of it’s followers that whatever happens to a person, they or their ‘vibration’ is to blame. This is simplistic and leads to a lack of compassion. A decent response to Jerry’s passing is to offer condolences to Ester and his family for the real pain one feels at losing a family member in this life. Sometimes feeling sad is okay. When denying your feelings because you have to be happy happy joy joy all the time, you are actually causing a situation which is false for yourself. We are all human beings and it is completely normal to feel anger, sadness, envy etc, and to have bad things happen to us. The lesson is to learn from everything, and to work on your reactions to these feelings. They are actually markers leading the way forward to more positive experiences. I have gained a lot from Abraham Hicks and feel sadness at Jerry’s passing. However, when I read posts like there are here, that has a go at Jews and Catholics as ‘cults’ one can only question the calibre of some of the Hicks followers. Being negative about others is not positive thinking. Thinking you’re better than others or have the answer is not positive thinking – it is delusional thinking. Accepting the world as it is and looking well upon the world, warts and all, cancer and all, sadness and all, and still being able to find the silver lining, still being able to feel empathy not blame for our fellow beings losses, is to me, the only intelligent and kind way to live. RIP Jerry, and thanks for all the wonderful information you have brought us.

  • Lorna says:

    So sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing…. he will be missed. Hopefully Esther will carry on this fascinating work. It’s always good to have constant reminders of the life we can create through our vibration and both Esther and Jerry, through Abraham, brought us these insights.

  • Lindah says:

    Jerry Hicks has since transitioned into non-physical.
    What i understand Abraham-Hicks teachings to mean is that WE EXPERIENCE whatever our DOMINANT VIBRATION we have going on…
    you wanna beat the drum of the negative things (contrast) around you or in you life, then be prepared to have MORE…you decide to beat the drum of the positive aspects of your life, then be prepared for MORE of that.
    basically…VIBRATION is at the ROOT of all THOUGHT and life…that what Jerry, Esther and Abraham have been saying for almost 30 years now is that YOU/ME/THEY/etc have the power to choose what vibration to be in…and the way we FEEL is the indicator of where we are at in that moment.
    The Hicks never claimed to be the messiahs, (as they are also students of “Abrahams” teachings eventhough Abraham was expressing itself through Esther…)but only that YOU, like them have access to Abraham with or without them which is TOTALLY unique to what religions of the world preach…meaning, that YOU and I have this guidance within ourselves too…like the example Esther presents…
    re: illness…it is only an INDICATOR of RESISTANCE in ones vibration which could be to do with ANYTHING…family. your lover, children, money, weight, stress, fear, hate, anger, etc so it would be hard to pin point exactly where it is hence “Abraham” teaches that they way I FEEL is the simplest ways to KNOW where im at vibrationally at any given moment.
    Jerrys resistance could’ve been his fear of leaving Esther behind with all this work, etc which caused him to resist and not go with the flow, etc REMEMBERING that at the end of the day, they are human beings like us having their own experiences and figuring this all out too…

  • Johan Ullenius says:

    Jerry, I hope you are good!
    Best wishes

  • Manny says:

    Good to hear Jerry is back and doing well. The Hicks are a business, a very successful one at that. I personally do not contibute any funds, I get my material free from various sources. I get a good vibe from their teaching , but don’t neccesarily agree with everything i hear or read from the Hicks. To believe Jerry was bitten by a spider ..leaves me wondering if it’s true or not. Time is an amazing thing and it dictates our lives and sooner or later the truth always reveals itself. ” All is well”

  • Update today from Esther & Jerry via email:
    “Dear Friends,
    “Thank you so much for all your well-wishes regarding Jerry’s health that have poured into the office. As many of you realize, we have been following Abraham’s advice not to give undue attention to that which we don’t prefer by not speaking about the situation publicly.
    “Given the apparent distress that our silence on the subject has been causing some of you, we felt it was time to briefly let you know how Jerry is doing. He is, as Abraham has always said about all of us, doing extremely well. Since we shared in our May 25th blog entry that an exaggerated white blood cell count discovered after a spider bite prompted Jerry to begin a course of chemotherapy, most of you instantly understood that this meant cancer. In fact, the official diagnosis given was a treatable form of leukemia.
    “After enjoying remarkable health nearly his entire lifetime, Jerry decided to downplay the diagnosis, but still give his full attention to this physical manifestation of previously unrecognized resistance – via a dual approach of cleaning up his vibration on certain subjects, while also availing himself of what modern medicine has to offer, just as Abraham has always advised.
    “This prompted us to cut back on our intensive touring schedule and embark on a remarkable journey that has been the most powerful of our lives together. At the moment this journey continues, and both Jerry and I are feeling better than ever as we practice Abraham’s teachings to focus on elevating our moods apart from the circumstances. So when thinking about us please do not be distressed, since no matter what the apparent evidence is of any situation, really and truly “All Is Well”.

  • Carrie says:

    Has anyone verified that Jerry has/had leukemia? All I read was he was advised to have some chemo treatment, and he was doing well with this (good spirits, etc) and in a recent YouTube I heard (not sure I could find it again) the person coming up to the hotseat said hello to Abraham, Esther and Jerry and said something “good to see you back together again”. It’s the tabloid mentality (and Esther is possessed by Satan) type websites who mentioned cancer and/or leukemia.
    I have heard a lot of Abraham. Right now I am on my 28th file of YouTube files (Real Player saves them and converts them to mp3 so I can make CDs to play when I go to bed at night) and eash file has around 80-90 audio files on it. And, before this I bought, or was given Abe tapes for around 10 years.
    On them, they suggest that going to a doctor is looking for something wrong, the medical’s whole purpose is “looking for and finding something WRONG”. But, there have also been doctors, therapists, etc who get into the teachings of Abe. Maybe they know someone like that? They have also said “if it feels better” to go to a doctor, for tests or treaments, etc than DO IT. I recently heard one where someone was asking about this (having laser eye surgery instead of “healing” her eyes) and Abraham said if you didn’t go along with modern things, you’d still be beating your clothes on rocks at the river. If someone is undecided about a treatment and trying NOT to go in the direction of having it (and getting it over with in that way) seems like doing it is the path of least resistence. “downstream” as they put it.
    There is also the overall energy and minds joined in something, like sickness and the usual treatment for it.
    Jerry apparently went along with the chemo, in the right frame of mind, and it worked. He had nothing to prove to anyone, like it’s not “spiritual” to go to a dr and have treatment for something.
    No big deal, did it, and apparently he’s okay now.
    They didn’t make a big deal of it, but were open about it (it was those hearig/reading about it who made the big deal)
    Like Wayne Dyer has leukemia. Some form of it. He talked about it a little bit (on talk shows) but all I remmember about it is him saying “leukemia is just a word”.
    Aside from all this, we can’t create in the reality of another,anyway, and we have enough to do, being aware of our own.
    Good lessons and chances for discussion about this.

  • Lynette/London says:

    I imagine if my husband was diagnosed with Leukemia – I would be facing a real challenge. There is also the responsibility of upholding the Abe teaching’s on wellness if you are at the helm. Not a necessity of course but many followers would espect same – so having to factor that in as well might be an added pressure. I am sure that Esther and Jerry are trying to keep everything afloat as best they can in the midst of this (to me) big challenge. Jerry is not in his 50’s but in his 80’s – which might or might not count!
    I thought I read that Jerry was always into the Napoleon Hill teachings on wealth. He enjoyed creating wealth – So what!.. I say. As someone stated we get soo much free Abraham material.
    I have been listening to a lot of Bashar (mentioned on this site) for a different perspective and I saw on the website a ‘donate’ botton… this would counter Bashar’s words that we all channel at times.. Can we all ask payment? I felt guilty listening to this wisdom after that – I felt like a thief!
    What in the world is there really not to appreciate about the glorious Abraham teachings .. I thank God for all I personally have derived from same. I say ‘Have a life for heaven’s sake! – take what resonates with you from the teachings and then move on and don’t surmise about others challenges and what they owe you and how you are being diddled etc etc… Just get a life!’ Nobody needs babysitting and warnings – we are all grown-up here and making our own choices!!’ : ))

  • Carrie says:

    The way they talk, Jerry (who is now in his 80’s) was financially well off long before he and Esther got into Abraham. If people stopped wanting this and buying the tapes, books, and going to the workshops (which, I believe, are always sold out) Jerry and Esther wouldn’t be poor. I don’t think they do it for the money, though they seem to ENJOY having money, so it works out for all. They give away a lot free like the YouTubes, and their website. So, anyone can have access to enough of it to learn from it. And they don’t ever ask people for donations, like some “teachers” do.
    I know of one group, I’ve sort of followed (out of curiousity a lot)for years, where the leader speaks for “Jesus” and the message seems to be send money to support me- so I can continue giving you the message. People who ask too many questions are made into enemies and banned from the group. But, I guess if people who support this (send money) feel they get something of value from it then it’s of value to them. Like with the TV preachers who say send more and more money!
    Law of allowing…. Let all things be exactly as they are.

  • evan says:

    Nice to find you I was searching for news about Jerry. Regarding the money thing I’ve found them about 6 months ago and I recently ordered the Live seminar online since they weren’t coming anywhere near me. So I’ve gotten all this amazing teaching for free, off youtube for 6 months, learning from Abe, feeling better, and I was extremely happy to offer them some payment for that. It was like $75 for 3.5 hours or something. Not bad for the amount of time I’ve gotten for free on youtube.
    I mean there has to be some misconception that all speakers, artists, musicians, etc are independently wealthy from birth. How can they keep doing their amazing gift in life if they don’t make money? You want them to go flip burgers or something?
    I am for sure going to buy some full seminars on cd and I’ll be happy to pay it. They have enriched my life in spades.

    Dave, you’re so darn cute! You are so powerful and creative!
    My story is that LOA and deliberate or not default creation is so prevalent in so many ways that you’d have to be almost blind not to see it.
    I love that you’re so passionate about helping people figure out the truth for themselves. That is such a great gift! You are such a good, helpful soul!
    In this moment right now I can truly say I love you and your contribution on this blog. And of course that just means I’m deeply connected to source and are seeing you through that perspective…which you may or may not know anything about but I do feel this way. I’m very tickled by all of this!

  • Carrie says:

    The other situation I’m trying to “Abe” has been ongoing and involved my son, his long time girlfriend and their 3 children. I see my son “creating” and getting what he DOESN’T want, by his thinking and attention it, and I also find myself getting drawn in to it (depression, frustration, and such) I know what Abe says about this, and it always makes senss to me. Getting drawn in to the negative drama and reality of others isn’t going to do anyone any good. I just keep saying “it will all work out”. And, I’ve noticed when I can get into this (like over last weekend the storm was a distraction, in a way) it does start to work out.
    I tell him we need a list of things that are working out, and not the problems. I know, I can’t create in the reality of another.
    I do see things working out, like his car died (maybe due to all the rain and dampness) and he is worried about getting to work, keeping his job (it’s night shift so hard to get a ride those hours) he just found someone who is willing to drive him- if they have gas (they don’t have extra money) and at the same time, I had entered an internet contest (you know, I enter a lot but who ever expects to win?) and unexpectedly (LOL) I won a $200 gas card!
    I don’t have a car, so using it for the person who is giving him the ride to and from work.
    The challenge for me (and I totally know and believe in this, regardless of whether Jerry, Esther and Abraham are a scam or not, it does work) is to keep focusing on what is working. And, coming from the “side” of having and not the lack part. I had entered the contest (weeks ago, you only had to enter once) and got the email about winnning the gas card. They were giving one away a day and I won on the last day!
    But, it wasn’t like I was sitting here thinking “I need to win the gas card to help my son get to work”.
    Just passing it on because every little positive sharing helps us all.

  • Carrie says:

    I know this topic started and is about Jerry’s health, but I’ve recently been going through several situations where I’ve had to come back (remember)- and in some cases playing the cds, and files, to get into a better feeling place.
    One, for example the recent “Hurricane” (Irene) that was publicized and pushed and made so much of, I kept thinking “people are growing and attracting this thing!”
    I tried not to give attention to it, which mean prety much turning off the TV and skpping things online. I realized that trying to write positive about it (and I noticed others were trying to do this too, even though they probably never heard of Abraham, etc) was just resisting it and still including it.
    Did end up not being much for me (northern New England) just rained all day Sunday and my internet was off Sunday till Monday night (electricity stayed on)
    Good practice, to notice it and the news, and how it almost made people mad if you DIDN’T take it seriously. The new/weather people were sure making sure no one DIDN’T take it seriously and realize the danger of it. In one place, people were out on the beach, and the newscaster (who was also there, with a camera person) was saying how the police kept going by trying to get people to leave but they wouldn’t, or would come back. He was very frustrated by this, that people were having a good time in the rain and wind and watching the waves when they should realize how dangerous this was! I thought “well if it’s THAT dangerous, why are YOU OUT IN IT?” LOL
    An experience…

  • Carrie says:

    Actually, I was playing YouTubes recently and on one (new one) someone said Hi to Jerry and said “good to see you back”. If there’s somethning about Jerry, Esther and Abraham (and those who get something good from it) seems like that’s your problem. As long as you are going to believe it’s a scam or whatever you believe, that’s what it will be to you.
    If this makes you feel good (and good about yourself and your life and all) then go for it. You can find a lot of other people online who will agree with you. Trying to find people who DON’T and trying to get them to… well, it’s your time, energy and life.

  • Carrie says:

    It didn’t bother me you were (as you say) “trying to expose Jerry and Esther like Bernie Madoff” (I know that name but not sure what he did, and don’t care).
    I don’t think Abraham says not to use medicine. They say in lots of places to do so, if that’s what will help you feel better (vibrationally).
    Aside from that, you seem to be creating your own reality in this, and it’s not close to mine, which is fine. If you got something out of this, nothing wrong with that.
    If you get something out of explaining this (it was just an interesting game?) so what.
    Did you get what you expected and wanted?

  • Dave Stone says:

    Just for the record, I posted here as a little jab to see who might start thinking objectively instead of raging along in the group think. It was an interesting experiment.
    While the message Esther and Jerry borrowed from others (and claimed to invent) can be very uplifting, it’s also obvious that his current condition and inability to get better without conventional medicine proves that the teachings are largely bogus. I don’t expect cult thinkers to be bothered by this as you could put them on the moon and they wouldn’t believe it unless Esther told them they were there.
    Jerry’s mastery of marketing skills and Esther’s gift for establishing a charismatic personal are a perfect match, but so were Jim and Tammy Faye Baker.
    Now, be honest, would all those of you who think I shouldn’t write about Jerry and Esther feel the same if I was exposing Bernie Madoff? Of course not, it’s simply your conviction that the Hicks’ message is sacred that lets you make them into sacred cows.
    But I can tell you that, first, they are fakes who are milking other peoples ideas dumbed down for the indiscriminate feel good addicts and, second, there are others who convey similar messages without wrapping them in icky Amway-style marketing.
    Esther and Jerry are narcissists who have been shown to contradict, manipulate and preach messages that have been proven inaccurate and, in some cases, dangerous. Frankly, I think it’s worth demanding that they come clean, at least, on Jerry’s leukemia and apologize to their sheep for trying to palm it off as a spider bite (which they have never recanted, by the way.)
    If the “teachings of Abraham” were worth anything and could be followed successfully, don’t you think Esther and Jerry would be the first to adhere to them? They could just stop dancing around the truth and trying to mesmerize their followers. None of the evasions would be necessary.

  • Carrie says:

    CONTRAST! (after thought, after I hit SUBMIT (LOL)

  • Carrie says:

    Wow, there’s 209 responses here. I came across this from Google when I put in Jerry Hick’s health. It looks like a blog,are there any other discussions on it or going on?
    Sometimes I’d like to find a group or forum to write on (Abe and positive stuff) Well, I have found some but got discouraged because it seemed like I’d write something (or someone else write something) and instead of a discussion, I (or the writer) would get jumped on and LECTURED. Like how this is wrong and not what Abe teachers and what we should/shouldn’t do. I knew that. Others apparently knew it too. Hard to explain, and I know we aren’t supposed to look to others for positive support (uplifting?) It just woudln’t feel very good. Years ago when I first found Abe, probably around 2000, I joined some Abe groups and quickly got into trouble (being a Sagittarius, I tend to be open about how I think, feel and believe) I’d get warned (like personal emails from the moderator)and once, I asked “how does censoring and controlling what is posted here fit in with what Abraham teaches?” (I hadn’t written anything bad, I guess just something the moderator didn’t agree with) and I found myself banned from the group. I often wondered how many others were warned, deleted, banned from the groups and others on it maybe didn’t know this.
    Anyway, I tend to write about a topic (for possible discussion) and some would respond about ME. What I was doing wrong and should/shouldn’t be doing, etc.
    Sometimes just “I hear you” is uplifting. I notice Abraham never argues (seriously) or puts people or lectures them (in a critical way).
    I know… again, we don’t look to others (online) to support us and help us when we get “out of the Vortex”. But, it might be nice at times. This blog, maybe because it’s not an official discussion forum? Seems very peaceful and uplifting and even disagreeing with people (like Dave) seemed to stay “kind”.
    Maybe it’s too much to expect kindness and allowing (or whatever) and, of course, the ultimate, overall lesson is, to allow others to be, even when it doesn’t seem like they are allowing me to be!
    Just getting very tired of all this hurricane talk! I live in northern New England, where it’s supposedl to be a tropical storm if it ever gets this far, and the media is making it sound like the worst storm ever in history!
    I keep putting the TV on and turning it off. Looking for some good energy vibes to join with to offset this.

  • Thanks for sharing that, Carrie.
    And I agree with George and Cyndi – Artisan, your post was delicious. Thanks for it!

    I’ve been going off YouTubes (after first looking for ones from April 2011, but so far, not hearing anything about Jerry. Unless maybe it was indirect and didn’t use his name)
    Found this one, uploaded in July 2011, the man asking starts out saying Hi to Abraham, Esther and Jerry, and nice to see the two of you again.
    If anyone has gone to the seminars recently, they’d know if Jerry is back with them.
    I would just assume Jerry had some negative energy come to his attention, cleaned up his vibration (and whatever went along with that) and is fine, now.

    Doesn’t really matter what Dave, or anyone things (or says) Seems like this would tie in with “allowing”. Good practice?
    Looking to see if that part of the Stamford CN workshop is on YouTube. So far found this (not directly about Jerry, but good)
    Right now, if it’s not on YouTube, and someone doesn’t say WHAT it says, I probably won’t hear it.
    But, LOA… it might come into my life in some way LOL

    Strikes me that Dave has long disappeared from our radar screens – so all is well on Good Vibe Blog again! : )

    George, I felt the same reaction. I like how Artisan says at the end that “they’ve been taught not to think for themselves”. It’s the whole “going along to get along” thing that some cults/organized religions are famous for. People have an innate need to belong…to be approved of…to be accepted. They would rather someone else make the rules so they don’t have to be responsible for their own choices. It might not feel good, but it’s “safe” for them. Thank you, Artisan, for sharing your thoughts. I had a huge dose of relief reading your well-written post.

  • George says:

    Very well put Artisan )
    I felt good reading your post.

    I am finding what I am reading here, absolutely fascinating…
    And I want to reply to earlier conversation about “right thought” and “wrong thought”, and remind everyone that for each of us, there is no such thing according to Abraham. There is only “resistant or non resistant” thought and we know it when we feel it, and moving it is our individual learning process.
    Colleen, if you’ve ever been to a Workshop with Abraham, you know as well as anybody, that we all have areas of difficulty; Lea has had a similiar experience to Jerry. It is really very harsh to conclude that Jerry’s contrast is a result of him not ‘living the teachings’. Abraham has said we in the physical will never be ‘free of contrast’. Contrast and physical, are how all that is expands and remains eternal. No one gets that, until they’ve lived lots of life, and gets it.
    Abraham actually explained the crux of Jerrys contrast at the Stamford Ct. Workshop on 5/28/11. For those of you who have it, it’s on the third CD, the third track from the end, I was surprised so many friends actually missed it. I won’t say what they say here, because this needs to be heard at least in the context of the Workshop.
    Dave Stone, I know your attempts to bring Abraham, and Jerry and Esther down (all of those websites–holy moses!), you are doing what you think will make you feel better. You are well intentioned and right on track. (…that was channelled, believe me!) Physical me is actually worried about how you are squandering your fortune, you might as well go after the bigger ‘cults’ like the Catholic Church or the Jews. Whether you do or you don’t, one way or another, you can’t really help anyone with that attitude. Media and governments try to entrap souls that way too, so you really are sort of a consensus sort of guy, nothing creative or original.
    Good feels Good 😉 and you all know when you don’t, so if you know you don’t feel good, you’re right where you need to be to make yourself feel better, your inner being, the non physical wiser part of you has a perception and thoughts that you can easily reach for and find, to make yourself feel good. That’s the SECRET.
    It takes some discipline to apply.
    Jeanette, thank you so much for hosting this space. I needed to wet my toes in the contrast about Jerry. I completely understand why so many don’t get the ‘tell the story you want to tell’ concept with regards to Jerry’s spider bite.
    Life is Good, and all is well.
    Wash your brains folks, with what makes you feel good and watch your lives get better, the only place you are really in charge are your thoughts ~ it’s easy to identify a member of a cult, they are usually rude, obtrusive, angry, out to get someone, jealous, ruminating,…because they don’t think things that bring them ease or happiness, because they’ve been taught not to think for themselves.

    They haven’t made much money from me. I have bought some books (and some more than once to give people) and a few CDs, and for awhile I was buying tapes (like the special subjects sets) When I first got interested in Abraham some (from the online groups) would pass tapes around. They’d get them weekly, or whatever and know they were getting another, so would pass them on as they played them. Now there is a never-ending source of them on YouTube, I just put it google, find a page, play one, then pick another, on and on. Sometimes I do this for hours while doing other things, it’s uplifting. I suppose this could be seen as being hypnotized and programmed by those looking to see that. But, if it is, all I’m getting programmed to do is be happier and feel better.
    it’s not saying “send money to Jerry and Esther!” sublimiinallly.
    On the other hand (OTOH) I have come across groups (not Abraham based) where it does seem like people are being programmed and/or solicited to “send money”. In one case, it’s supposedly Jesus asking for this (he is allowing people to send money to help get his word out to the world. His word seems to be a lot “send money” (LOL) This bothered me for a long time, and I’d try and point out, what seemed like inconsistencies and deceipt (people who ask questions or say what they don’t want said are banned and made into “enemies”- no one seems to question this, like would a group run by Jesus see and have enemies?) Especially as those running it buy more and more expensive things (homes, cars) they apparently need to speak for Jesus to the world.
    Anyway, at some point I got into thinking “it’s their money” and if they feel they get something out of it (helping Jesus live in luxury) than it’s probably worth it to them. They get something out of it.
    The same idea with Jerry and Esther making a lot of money (and if people didn’t get something from it, they wouldn’t pay them, and I think the Hickses would be fine with that, they’d retire or move on to something else. No one is forced to buy or go to the seminars and get energy from being in the group). Someone once commented “maybe it makes Jerry and Esther happy to make a lot of money?” (or do this and the money flows in). It seemed simple and nothing wrong with that. People are happy with what they pay for and Jerry and Esther are happy making money, everyone is happy.
    And, maybe those who make negative commnts about Abraham (or anything, for that matter) are happy in their own way. If they didn’t feel good about it, why do it?
    I’m happy I found this discussion blog LOL
