Book Review

The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham by Esther and Jerry Hicks


This book has magic with its pages. This is the original book about the law of attraction which jumped to prominence with the release of The Secret. What is missing in The Secret (and if you still have not read it please get a copy today) is the refinement of techniques for using the Law of Attraction.

The book also outlines Jerry and Esther’s journey to the eventual channelling of Abraham (a group of loving entities). If you are not familiar with Abraham and his teachings, whether or not you believe in channeling, you can find links here under “Inspirational Videos”. These are simply powerful messages that can transform your life.

The book then deals with the Laws of the Universe which are:

The Law of Attraction: the one everyone is most familiar with.

The Law of Deliberate Creation

The Law of Allowing

I won’t go into detail here but go to the book and listen(you Viagra Jelly read his words but you are actually listening to them, I can’t explain) to Abraham explain these laws and be prepared for profound insights to emerge as you read.

The price of the book however can be found in a technique called Segment Intending. Stated simply your day is divided into natural segments: waking up, morning preparation for the day, breakfast, drive to work and so on. Each person’s segments are unique to them.

Segment Intending comes into play as you pause before each segment and state to yourself what it is you want to “intend” or achieve from this segment. For instance as you prepare to go to sleep for the night you might say this to yourself (this is what I say “ I am going to have a lovely deep sleep and rest comfortably and luxuriously to wake up refreshed, rested and ready for the new day.”

What you intend, what you ask for, what you expect is what you get. If you have difficulty sleeping this might not happened right away. Since you have been asking for poor sleep, you need to stop asking for that and then develop an emotion of happiness about sleep.
I have only been practicing this for a few days. Sometimes I enter a new segment without realizing it, then have to back track a moment to ask myself what do I want to achieve with this segment?

I can tell you that this really focuses you. You become more present in the moment because you focus on each small segment and intend your outcome.

When I get off track I have a guidance system that tells me I have wandered away for this segment and focused on something other than the task at hand. This forces me back to the moment and the segment I am in.

Just as an example, for this segment, writing about this book for my post, I stopped and said to myself, I want to express my excitement about this book and especially talk about segment intending and get the idea across what a powerful tool this is to use. And I want to complete this segment to join it with my Saturday Book post for Beautiful Summer Morning.
So as I wrap up this segment, I can’t urge you strongly enough to read this book. It brought me so much joy and excitement, I felt just like a kid at Christmas opening presents.

Read a Book, Get Inspired
