Contributors: Mollie Player and Jerry and Esther Hicks in Money and the Law of Attraction
Sometimes, it’s tempting to think the law of attraction and positive thinking only work for people who already have the success thing at least partially figured out. If you’re feeling like that right now, it might be a good idea to read a story about a secretary and a multi-level marketing salesperson (Amway, I think it was) who are now worth lots of millions of dollars.
That couple: Jerry and Esther Hicks–and they made the money even before Esther began receiving the messages from beyond that have since made them both so well-known.
In the book Money and the Law of Attraction, Jerry tells of a day several decades back when he happened upon a book by Napolean Hill called Think and Grow Rich.
At first he wasn’t all that interested in learning more or applying the concepts. However, a short time later he met “a man in a motel in Minnesota who offered me a business opportunity that was so compatible with Hill’s teaching that for nine joyous years I focused my attention on building that business.”Over those nine years, that business grew–and grew, and grew, and grew, into a “multi-million dollar enterprise.” He sought out more writings on the topic, then transitioned to a career of teaching these principles. At some point Esther became inspired to learn how to meditate, then began her career as a medium.In the book, Hicks says the adventure began soon after clarifying in his mind what he really wanted in his career: freedom and independence.
You can, of course, get a copy of the book with the story on Amazon.com. Well worth not just a read, but a thorough poring over. (I also really, really appreciate their videos showing Esther channeling Abraham at their law of attraction conferences.)
After Rachel and Matthew had their first child, they had a couple of fights. Well, okay, more than a couple—they fought for over three years. They fought about schedules. They fought about bad habits. They even fought about the lawn mower. And besides actually having their child, it was the best thing that could've happened.
