Yes this is a little repetitive, but the messages are always clear and always worth revisiting. I don't mind hearing the same bits of advice again. I cherish all of Abraham's advice. Thank you Esther!
The Vortex changed my perception of how I view my existence on Earth and why. This book has helped change my life around from just living to being happy, content and prosperous!!
It explains how the Law of Attraction manifests in our lives .
What's not to like? Jerry Hicks is brilliant.
The whole book was moving
No, Actually there is some redeeming value the concepts of this book, and I have generally found a great deal of help in my own life through listening to self help and relationship books. The premise of this book, that positive thinking and de-emphasizing the negative can improve your life, are actually good advice, but the way the material is presented in this absurd "law of attraction" stuff made me feel more like I was joining a cult. The notion that every thing that happens to you, happens because you thought about it is crap. I'm all for trying to stay positive, but this book can lead people to unhealthy, unrealistic expectations.
It was more like a question and answer session and many of the questions and answers were just repeated in a slightly different context over and over again.
No. This book alone was repetitive. You could summarize the entire book as follows. Every thing you think about happens to you, good or bad (not true, but anyway), if you want good things to happen to you, think about the good things. If you focus on what's wrong in your life or what you don't have, that's what you will get.
I was put off from the very beginning when Mr. Hicks started discussing how he realized the reason he wasn't rich is because he wasn't thinking the correct thoughts about money. Apparently he started thinking about selling people hocus pocus and more luxury cars came his way.
A soul, living a human experience.
This book is the ultimate guide for everyone who desires to discover in depth Abraham's teachings and the law of attraction. I highly recommend this audiobook since the narrators are Jerry and Esther themselves which doubles the good vibrations. The additional DVD is short and good to start with for beginners yet not that useful after reading the book.
Yes, I have already listened it a few times.
This is one of my favorites.
Monitor your emotions and get into the vortex back again everytime you fall out.
Credibility was lost somewhat for me, after mention of Jerry & Esther's $2M bus. The message is compelling, but the entire book is merely a regurgitation of the same premise in different sentence structures. I got the feeling that the many repetitions of the same theme throughout many of the Hicks' teachings is merely a way to re-brand the same content for money. I hope I'm wrong. There's also an affect to Esther's voice, that gnaws at me, which is why I typically seek other teachers on similar topics.
Yes, a lot of insight regarding the power of positive thinking
Abraham... Just like 'em
The question and answer format initially threw me off but I learned to appreciate it rather quickly
Thoughts create your life
This book has bones (ideas not readily digestible or just outlandish) but it's worth getting through. The things that resonated with me where the things I could line up with the Bible.
Not had the print version but the audio one was convenient for me.
Many good concepts and all easily tried/implemented.
Just found some repetition which is my only negative comment. The live audience recording was a great inclusion. I really enjoy Abraham and would happily recommend this to those who want to see the bigger picture of how to think and attract the right things.
I would have rated this much higher if it MADE SENSE. I have listened to many books on affirmations and positive thinking, many by the same publishers. I LOVE Louise Hay! I found this book confusing, scattered, the reading poor and the idea of the female writer channeling someone named Abraham just was too much.
Something on the same topic not so far fetched on the same topic.
He sounded monotone and as if he was reading.
I would have the couple bring their message down to basic common priciples and relay them in similar question and answer format, but not as if Jerry Hick's was interviewing some spirit coming through Esther. She also spoke in such a long winded way by the time she got to something usefull I was numb.
Please search out something by Louise Hay, Rhonde Byrne or Eckard Tolle instead.
