This week, Life Training Online will be reviewing Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, the fourth of fifty-two books in the 52 Personal Development Books in 52 Weeks series.
The Law of Attraction has become quite the buzz word as of late. Since being featured on Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres and Larry King, The Secret has put the Law of Attraction into the mainstream.
As far as the LOA goes, Ask and It Is Given is often considered to be THE authority on what it is and how to use it to better our lives. What’s quite unique about this book, is that although Jerry and Esther are listed as the authors, Ask and It Is Given is actually a collection of channeled messages (through Esther) from a group of non-physical entities who call themselves Abraham. The truth of this is a moot point, however personally I think it’s more important to study the subject matter for its usefulness – experimenting upon it — rather than wasting time debating the source.
Ask and It Is Given is broken up into two parts: Part 1, containing an in-depth explanation of the principles of the Law of Attraction with discussions into its practical uses for increasing your prosperity, reclaiming your health, improving your relationships, and overall improving your life; and Part 2, guiding you through 22 different “processes” which help to increase your “vibrational energy”.
You’ll notice that much of the advice and teachings contained in this work consists of learning how to change your life by aligning this “vibrational energy” with that of your desires. The authors explain that if you can learn to do this, the world is your oyster.
So you’re in for a wild ride this week as we uncover some of the “Teachings of Abraham”. Can these principles literally transform your life as the authors claim? Let’s take a deeper look this week…
Ask and It Is Given is the fourth of fifty-two books in Life Training – Online’s series 52 Personal Development Books in 52 Weeks.
