Esther Hicks / Oprah / The Secret – The Big Picture

Here are video and audio segments offering a very
interesting take on Esther Hicks being written out of The Secret.

I am still a fan of the movie, but I do believe that there
is so much more to it than what was originally presented. Many of the teachers
are even moving beyond The Secret,
Joe Vitale’s new books
Zero Limits
and The
(which I
have a contributed chapter
), Jack Canfield’s The
Success Principles
. There will likely be more movies that expand on
these ideas. The Secret opens people
eyes to stop creating their lives by default and start intending new ideas. If
you have been a reader of this blog you know that deciding to be a more
creative force in your own life will open up new feelings and life experiences
(not something The Secret goes into).
By intending bigger and better things for yourself, everything that is not in
alignment with the new visions will come up for airing and release. Usually in
the form of feelings, but also situations that test your resolve to this new
life will also come up. All of it is of your creation in response to your new
beliefs (and your old beliefs).

The Secret is the first step of many ongoing steps to
personal responsibility in your own creative vision. The value of The Secret is, a huge and widely
dispersed audience was ready for the material, ravenously watched it, embraced
it, and are applying the principles. I am not sure the millions who have
watched it and read the book would have been able to handle the “woo woo”
channeling aspect that the Hicks brought. Oprah even said on her radio
interview with Esther Hicks that her television audience isn’t ready for the
channeling of Abraham.

It is all in divine order; the Hicks have received
tremendous increase in visibility (which they rightly deserve) and the information
is out there in a big way which is fantastic for the individuals that are
discovering the power they hold in their thoughts. And great for the
improvement of global consciousness (see yesterday’s post: How We
Create Our Reality
). I highly recommend a couple of books by Esther
and Jerry Hicks, one of the best is Ask
and It Is Given
and of course The
Law of Attraction 
(which really
is The Secret).

Here is the video of
Abraham/Esther discussing The Secret:

    I have read all of the Hicks books, and when I watched The Secret for the first time I did wonder about any connection. I never did purchase The Secret because I never did FEEL especially compelled to. I have The Law of Attraction on my ipod, though.
    I am so happy to have discovered your blog. Thank you so much for visiting mine, and for your nice message on Blog Log.

    Thanks for conveniently providing those recordings. I was fortunate to have purchased the version of the Secret with Abraham/Hicks. I do understand the need to be cautious about the channeling aspect, but I believe in time it’ll be better understood and not thought of as being too strange.
    Been enjoying your blog!
