For almost 20 years Jerry and Esther Hicks have been presenting workshops, producing tapes and writing books to help people create the life they desire. And desire is no small word in this agenda. According to the teachings of "Abraham"--a collective name for the spiritual entities that are channeled through Esther--desire is a good and natural force within us. In fact, we are all here to fulfill our desires, according to Abraham. Yet the reason so much of us feel frustrated, is that we have difficulty knowing how to ask and receive whatever we want to be, do or have.
Although Jerry and Esther are listed as the authors, Ask and It Is Given is actually a collection of channeled messages from Abraham. Fans of Abraham and the Hicks may not find new information, but will probably be delighted to have an inspiring, updated book that speaks to the familiar conversation of attracting the life we want. Newcomers may also be intrigued by this excellent, in-depth discussion on how to change one?s life by matching the vibrational energy of one?s desires--taking the power of positive thinking to a whole new level.
Because this material is channeled, it often reads like The Power of Now or A Course in Miracles--not a fast food book to be devoured in one sitting. Rather, this is a book to be read in passages, with a soothing gestation period in between. It includes much advice on working with energy and emotions as well as specific chapters on increasing prosperity, reclaiming health, working with meditation, and clearing clutter for clarity. For those who are onboard with the "Laws of Attraction" and the "Art of Receiving" that Abraham speaks of, this could be one of those deliciously mysterious books that you can open to any page and it seems to offer the exact advice or insight you need right now.--Gail Hudson
Ask and It Is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, which presents the teachings of the nonphysical entity Abraham, will help you learn how to manifest your desires so that you?re living the joyous and fulfilling life you deserve.

It?s your birthright to live a life filled with everything that is good?and this book will show you how to make it so in every way!
- Ask and it is Given amazing
Whether you are able to buy into where the information comes from or not, you need to read and re-read this book. The philosophy is absolutely amazing, and works if you apply it in your life. Take the time to read the entire book, give it a chance, and I think you will be simply amazed and delighted, for your life will change!...more info
- For the person who wants to understand the LofA - easily!
This book is WONDERFUL! It's easy to read - and it's practical. The examples on various ways to learn how to allow is great because there's something for everyone. Abraham's teachings are for "US", the mainstream person. I bought it because I heard about the "prosperity game" in which you deposit $1000 and write a(n-imaginary) check to learn to raise your money consciousness, but after reading it all the way through, I can't wait to read it again. I know I missed things and I want to absorb everything I possibly can from these teachings because they speak to me. It's not written for the ultra-intelligent, but it IS intelligent. I recommend it to anyone who really wants to learn how to bring things into your life with the Law of Attraction by learning how to allow it into your life!...more info
- Channeled messages from "Abraham"
"Ask and it is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks is a collection of channeled messages from 'Abraham.' 'Abraham' is a collective name for the spiritual entities that are channeled through Esther.
'Abraham' teaches that desire is a good and natural force in us, and that we are here to fulfill our desires. However, many of us feel frustrated in attempting to fulfill our desires. The reason for this, according to 'Abraham' is that we do not know how to ask and receive whatever we want to be, do or have.
"Ask and it is Given" is filled with delightful, and inspiring information on how to change one's life by matching the vibrational energy of one's desires.
This is a book to be read in passages, giving time to reflect and truly absorb the material.
Even greater when read together with,

- with a grain of salt
As a literary work I give this book 2 stars. It's super repetitive. So repetitive that while listening to the audio version I thought my Ipod was broken and skipping at one point! If I had read the book rather than listening to it while i did other things I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it, or even finished it.
The information contained in this book, however, is fabulous! 5 stars!
The reason why I give it 5 stars is that Esther and Jerry hicks are the first people that I know of that recognize when you are in a low place emotionally you need to take baby steps towards feeling better first in order to accomplish what you want. You can make those steps very quickly in the end, but you can't get from one point to the other without experiencing the middle. If what you want is too far away from where you are you won't have it right now, or even tommorow, but if you make the shift to the next level closer your goal will be closer to you.
This is a very practical point that most self help and self improvement books miss out on entirely, and in my opinion why they don't work for most people. If what you want it seems too far away, you won't allow yourself to have it!
Whether you believe in the Law Of Attraction or not, whether you believe in Abraham or not, you can gain something from this book. I'm still not sure if I believe in these things, but it doesn't matter right now. I don't really believe in magic, I don't know that I will ever "manifest" anything!
The point is that while the information is presented in a way that seems way out of left field and new-age to most people, it is actually very practical and common sense. The creative visualization practices presented in "The Processes" will work for you if you approach them with an open mind and a goal of just feeling better.
So my advice, if you are interested in these ideas, than listen to the audio while you do your busy work. It definitely won't hurt. If you combine it with more action oriented information ("Think and grow rich") you will have a winning combination to achieve whatever you want in life. ...more info
- If you read this book, please read your bibles along with it
I really had a hard time getting past the first part of Abraham. Where the spirituality was concerned, but after praying for some guidance and understanding, I realized that the book is (in my opinion at least) just mind games, and it plays on the weak minded people. So from an open minded point-of-view, it is a good book, but for anyone who wants to read this book, please read your bible along with it. I think we all can say that prayer and trusting in God to set the stage in life and where you are in life is the answer. I mean yes things happen for a reason. I mean I want the desire to have a new car ONE DAY but do I go out and steal one just because for a split second I had the desire to have one? I mean do I want to go to jail for a car over a split second desire? Or do I trust God in providing me one, one day? I don't mean to sound all righteous or nothing, I just don't want to get confused on how I get what I want. ...more info
- a wonderful gift to be given as a gift for the Holidays
Ask and it is Given, to give with love , un-conditionally, what a powerful concept , but few of us are on the receiving end because we use our mind/head instead of our heart were love is concerned. Once we get thru the fluff of youthful "love". We see with mature eyes of the heart and follow Abraham. It is comfortable to love around the holiday's. We soon forget after the holiday's are passed. I have re-read this book several times and gleen more with each reading. This book is a gift to be enjoyed all year long...more info
- If you like Drivel
If you like drivel you will love this!
A friend of mine who I consider to be quite intelligent suggested that there might be help for my battle with Myofascial Pain disease in this book.
He did in fact credit his recovery from luekemia to his having read the book.
If you believe in Disney Type fantasy or Harry Potter or other fantasy then this will work for you.
It certainly works for the authors as the royalties roll in.
I made the mistake of buying the tapes too. They can be torture for a realist to try to listen to!
- A Truly Life-changing Book
For those that are ready to hear the information in this book, it will truly be life-changing. Discover practical steps on how to take control of your emotions, directing them in a way that puts the power of the universe to work for you and achieve all that you desire to be....more info
- Just like that, huh?
The book is built on the premise that one creates life though your thoughts and emotions. If these are changed for better or worse, so the life is changed accordingly. Your life is the sum total of your thoughts and emotions which create a positive or negative reality.
This book teaches a good sort of self/mind control. It has a workbook of exercises that shows how a person may be able to create a desired reality. One suggestion is to live life segment by segment, suggesting to yourself how you want each segment to play out through positive suggestions such as "I'm having a smooth and easy day at work" or I'm getting a deep and refreshing sleep". Then you should feel or anticipate the emotion of well-being behind your desires to create that reality. Another exercise is to write a script about how you want your life to turn out in the future. It's fun to write such a script and supposedly your life will start to come out like the script. Or you can imagine that you are given a $1000 dollars each day. How would you spend it? This gets you into the feeling of being prosperous, which will create that reality. If you are down, you should focus on the positive things that are going on in your life. Look around your surroundings and be grateful for the good things you have. This will create positive thoughts, which will create a good mood, which will create a better reality. You should focus on how you want your life to be, not on how you think life really is. You should then expect what you wanted and feel that it is coming to you. Meditation can also uplift thoughts and break old patterns. Change your life; don't try to change others or the world.
There aren't many anecdotal stories that the techniques actually work, but they are fun mind games anyway. I will check back in if the book helps me in any way. I tried making lists about desired outcomes at one time, which is a similar technique, and it didn't work. Supposedly, I would be resisting the outcome in some subtle way, according to the book. This is a channeled work coming from higher beings called Abraham. Esther Hicks gets into a meditative state to receive such messages.
Creating reality through thoughts and emotions is harder to justify when some extremely bad things happen to relatively innocent people such as wars, torture, kidnappings, impoverishment, exploitation, and enslavement. How do such realities get created, especially on a mass scale?
- My LIFE is ASKING and Universe is GIVING
Asking is so many things and this book addresses them. How you think, speak, act, expect, and believe. Ester tells us in the simplest language just how to go about creating LIVES that harness our deepest DESIRES. This is a book to be read and enjoyed over and over again. I know that too many times I just don't get it the first time or second or....Enjoy!
- This book changed my life!
There are not many things that happen in one's life that one could say made a significant impact on their daily ways of living. This book has made a huge impact on my life. Beliefs that I was on the edge of believing were validated after reading this book. This book tells you where You came from, where You are headed, and how You can change and how You are the creator of change. And that we All have the desire to experience happiness, joyfulness, and love. This book teaches you how to mold and create your own world (your own experiences) and how your experiences (your world) connects with others to form the entire World in which we all live. A World where every human soul is truly connected to one Source Energy (God). If you are on the edge of possibly reading this book, step off of that edge and pick it up, read it, and see how your world and the entire world around you can change...all by your own thoughts and emotions. Abraham are truly the greatest teachers of the Non-Physical we have the honor of experiencing. If you've been wondering why you are here and you've been asking for answers, then The Law of Attraction (the Universal Manager), right now, has answered your wish (prayer). It has aligned people, places, and events to bring you to this book to understand the true meaning of life. You see...You ask and It Is Given!...no exceptions. :)...more info
- Interesting concepts
This was an easy fun read, I just wish I could get their techniques to really work in my life. I've honestly tried to no avail. ...more info
- The GRANDFATHER of Self-Help Books!
This is the absolute best book on how to live your best life. It is literally from "out of this world!"
The authors of this book (Abraham) are non-physical beings channeled through the co-writer, Esther Hicks. We will admit that after reading the introductory chapter where this concept is explained, we almost put the book down . We had a MAJOR problem with this concept because it felt very uncomfortable. We pushed passed the uncomfortable feeling and got through the book. We are very pleased to say "WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID!"
This book explains how to use the laws of the universe to achieve any goal. These principles make perfect sense. We can now look back in our lives and clearly understand why we are where we are today. This book explains how we were creating by default, because these principles work whether or not we know about them... like gravity. The best part is that from what we learned from this book, we can now use these universal principles to deliberately create the lives we want for our future. IT REALLY WORKS!
You can start from right where you are. No matter what your life looks like today, you can begin changing for the better. Abraham gives different processes to help you to start moving up the "emotional ladder." Based on how you are feeling right now, you can choose the best process to help you start moving towards your desired goal.
There are many books on the market explaining these principles, but we have found that most of them reference this book, hence our title: The GRANDADDY of self-help books!
This is a MUST READ!
- One of the Best Books I've read yet...
I read a lot of Wayne Dyer books, and this is one of many he made reference to. Whether you buy into the whole idea of chanelling or not, the ideas offered here are very applicable to anyone's life. It just seems to make sense to me....Highly readable, sometimes repetative (in a good way), this is a book that you will sit down and read a portion of every day....more info
- Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires
"Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires" is one of a series of books by Esther and Jerry Hicks that I have discovered over the past few months. They offer simple answers to my most difficult questions,
"Why don't I have the things I have worked hardest for (prosperity, love, marriage..)what is impeding my joy?" Their teachings have brought a great deal of calm to an otherwise stormy part of my life....more info
- Ask and It Is Given - Learning to Manifest Your Desires
Ask and It Is Given is a must read from Ester & Jerry Hicks (The Teachings of Abraham.) It's an accompanying book to The Law of Attraction - The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham also by the authors through Abraham. The empowering parts of Ask and It Is Given are to be found in Part II of the book which are the processes. Definitely a well thought out and well communicated book for those interested in new thought understandings....more info
- The real deal
The Hicks are the real deal when it comes to Law of Attraction. You can feel the spirit of Abraham come through as every word in that book holds truth and wisdom. I love how the book bridges the gap of where you are vibrationally to where you want to be to manifest your desires. So many of us fail at LOA because we try making a huge leap. The exercises are amazing in helping you climb that ladder, step by step!

- I loved every delicious word...
I'm so inspired and at ease after reading this book. Ask and It is Given is my third attempt at understanding the Laws of Attraction and this one by far best explained how feelings and thoughts create reality. The lanuage was conversational and very easy to follow and I loved how the author was full of illustrations and examples that kept me interested throughout as every chapter offered something new. I'm sure if I reread the book again, I would learn something I missed the first time! (lol) I love this book and I'll keep it near me always. I'm excited about trying the processes highligted and allowing all that I desire to manifest in my life.

- Amway Motivational Seminar Re-packaged
For those of you who don't get the significance of the connection between Amway and Abraham I would urge you to do some honest, open-minded research and come to your own conclusions. For a time I believed that "Abraham" was the real deal. I bought their books, CD's and DVDs. I attended one of their workshops. But after discovering contradictions in the material I began to ask questions. After having done my own research I have come to believe that "Abraham" is nothing more than the re-packaged, spiritually-dramatized version of the Amway motivational seminars that Jerry Hicks gave in the 1970's and 1980's. Yes, it is wonderful, positive material that is lovingly, wittily delivered. It makes people feel good. And if that's all you need - I highly recommend it. But I, for one, need more than that....more info
- Fantastic Book!
This book is essential for anyone wanting more happiness and greater peace. Since practicing the Art of Allowing, I have transformed my entire life into something I love and am eager to live. I found the information in this book to be intuitive. It just feels right. There is relief on every page and the exercises in the back are invaluable, making it the best book to start you on your journey to Allowing all you desire to manifest in your life. Great help for parenting too!...more info
- Ask And It Is Given
This is the most wonderful book I have ever touched. The teachings within it will change your life. If you let it. It is priceless and you will want to read it over and over again. Open your mind, relax and let all the good you deserve come to you....more info
- Worth Every Penny
I've read several books by Jerry & Esther Hicks, including 'The Law of Attraction' and 'The Astonishing Power of Emotions'. This one, however, had the most impact on me. I read it in 2 days and have reread a couple of times since. The gist of the message delivered by 'Abraham' is that the best thing we can do is to reach for 'relief'...not try to go from dismally unhappy to ecstatic joy. In fact, the delivery of this information felt so 'right' to me, all other books I'd read prior to this one made even more sense. In other words, this book was the 'mmissing piece of the puzzle'. I can't say enough about the contents. I think it's one of the most valuable books I've ever read and, if you're familiar with 'Abraham' and have heard them speak, you can even hear the humor when you read the words. An invaluable resource for anyone wishing to change the way they live their life. There are even some 'games' to play to enhance your ability to focus on what you really want as opposed to what you're pushing against. Terrific read!...more info
- Feeling good is all that matters!
This is yet another book that professes to know the way to riches. Good news! it's easy, I mean it is REALLY easy. Basically; think positive, visualize the 'things' you want, get your vibration all lined up and you're done.
Then add some selfishness, which is important and the more the better! In case you think that the world may need people who actually have empathy and compassion, they cover that one. Simply believe that all those poor sots suffering and disabled choose their lot in life. Got it? OK, let's focus back to feeling good!!!
The two 'leaders' are former Amway sales people (Source: NY TIMES ARTICLE)
This manifesting of success DOES WORK - it works for the people who convince people that it works.
Their law of attraction is true-ish. First, it's not a law. Second it is a small piece of the whole. It's like believing that eating vegetables is the way to health, which is correct, but so are many things IN CONJUNCTION. With this book, it's just vegetables or just LOA and that's all.
Shallow with tunnel vision and a desperate need to believe that things will be easy? Then this is the book for you!
- Life Changing!
This is certainly a must have have for anyone interested in unlocking the hidded mysteries of life. It is absolutely life changing!
- HOW CAN PEOPLE BUY SUCH BOOKS?
This book is crammed with around the kitchen zink self-made psycho-spiritual mind babble. It does not even properly explain the concept of vibration that is being used to create the "manifest your desires effect". How can anyone with no proper psychological traning/understanding establish themselves as bestselling authors by forwarding messages from a spiritual entity they cannot even transcribe properly. This is yet another horrific example of how self-established New Age authors turn themselves into authorities with big pockets by tricking readers into buying yet another volume of their over the counter make yourself happy products. If you trust your own life experience and use your discernment - you could leave this bookstore and keep your dollars. ...more info
'Ask and It Is Given' is a remarkable book. Having bought it from a store on New York's 42nd Street, I was on a crowded subway uptown when I opened it and began reading. What followed was astonishing; a rare, epiphanic moment in which my perception of reality by means of a sudden intuitive realization completely transformed my state of consciousness. As soon as I read that the book is actually a collection of channeled messages from Abraham, I was left speechless. Sleep has that effect....more info
This book is the best book I have read in years. It arrived at the right moment in my life. I was going around in a circle not knowing where to go or what to do anymore. After reading this book, I began to focus my energy in the things that I wanted instead of the miserable things that I continued to have no matter how hard I tried to push away. I am not finished with the book. I am devoring it slowly, very slowly to absorb it into my system. I know it works because one of the things that I wanted came through a week after I began reading the book. I know this book will transform my life and I will finally find what I have always wanted. I am recommending this book to all my friends and acquaintances. Thank you Esther and Jerry for the wonderful job of hope and encouragement you have done. ...more info
- More than positive thinking
This book is well written and presents information that is life changing yet at the same time familiar. The 22 processes that are included as exercises have been instrumental in teaching me how to allow all that is good to flow in my direction. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to increase their vibrational attitude, and thus enhance their life. This is a book I have reread every few months and in doing so have found more and more ways to apply these subtle techniques....more info

Didn't think I finished it, promoted by Dr. Wayne Dyer, it's a bit abstract and disillusioned, but interesting. I won't guide my life by it....more info

- My favorite books
The Abraham-Hicks books are my favorite books. While there are lots of books written on this subject, the Abraham-Hicks books teach you how to apply the concept of the law of attraction. The books are well written and are very applicable to real life. I would encourage you to try one of the books, but study it, rather than read it. Then try some of the processes described in the book. To get the most out the ideas in the books, you need to read them all - I have.
I am grateful to the Hicks for writing and publishing these books. ...more info
- Moved My World
I had been introduced to Abraham-Hicks through gift cassettes. I enjoyed them so, that I purchased this book
and read it almost cover to cover in a few days. It has
changed my life, giving me new ideas to ponder, digest and
incorporate into my daily life. If one wants to balance his/her life by increasing spirituality, this book is a
most read. I recommend it highly....more info

- How did I live without this book?
This book was recommended by a friend when she knew I was going through a really bad time. I have enjoyed it so much that I have both purchased additional copies for others and have recommended it to others who have bought it.
I really knew very little about the Abraham-Hicks "movement" (if that's the right word). Regardless, what they offer is very useful, simple, and does have amazing results.
What I especially love about this book are the processes in the back. My favorites are #2 - The Magical Creation Box, #5 - The Prosperity Game (which my husband is doing), #10 - The Placemat Process, and #15 - The Wallet Process. These are very simple actions you can take and the reward is amazing....more info
- Ask and It Is Given
This is an incredible, life changing book. The concepts taught by Abraham are so simple and straight-forward and necessary for us to hear. I found the 22 processes particularly helpful. Regardless of what emotional or vibrational state you start from, these processes can help you move to a place of higher vibrations, closer to manifesting your desires. This book will give you the tools and thought processes to help you deliberately create your desires.
I recommend reading it multiple times to make sure you didn't miss anything!...more info
- A "Spine-tingling Read" for users of Law of Attraction
If you are like me, and have read seemingly every book on using the Law of Attraction, please read this. For me, the teachings brought everything together and helped me apply it now, to more than 1 aspect of my life - to all at once. The best tool I benefited most from, is the "Emotional Guidance System". I am keeping more positive than ever before, and manifesting better than I ever have. This book shows you how to recognize when you've strayed off-track instantly, and how to get back on. The exercises are fun and positive. I plan on re-reading this book at least twice more. Be well and prosper!...more info
- Wisdom from
If you had asked me a year ago to read a book that was written by "channelling the energy of non-physical beings" I would have fallen over laughing. Now I can honestly say that Ask And It Is Given is one of my favourite books. This is definitely not a book that would appeal to everyone (then again, what book is?), and I would recommend visiting the Abraham website [...] to learn more about the teachings of Abraham, before you read this book. So hop online, listen to the audio, watch some of the Abraham videos, and then come back to Ask And It Is Given - I promise you, the book will make a lot more sense if you do it this way. Once you've done all that, you'll find that this text offers a genuine way to manifest joy and peace in your life.
Ask and It Is Given is written in two parts. The first discusses the importance of finding joy in every aspect of your life, while the second is a collection of practical tasks that will assist you in finding your joy. The premise of all Abraham's teachings is that once you get happy, more happiness (and anything else you want in life) will come. This is a lot more difficult than it sounds (why else is the self-help genre so popular?) but the processes that Abraham recommends are all easy to implement and fun.
This is a great book for anyone who has watched The Secret movie (Abraham-Hicks was in the original version of the film) and would like to expand on their knowledge of the Law of Attraction. The wit and wisdom of Abraham is timeless, and if you embrace their message, you'll find yourself coming back to this book time and time again.

- Driven by Promise or Carried by Providence?
As of today about 390 5-star reviewers are enthralled by an unseen character's promises "dictated" to a woman writer. So few have told us with conviction, exactly how those words have significantly impacted their lives. There's a vast difference between getting jazzed over provocative and compelling ideas, and actually experiencing a permanent (or even temporary) positive life-change.
It's been said; "For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not, no explanation is possible." What I believe to matter most, is to be open to possibilities, yet require reasonable and authentic explanations before they become True for me.
The dilemma for most of us is not how to get what we want, but how to KNOW what we want. It's no "secret" that natural inspiration comes only with absolute certainty. When that happens, we're no longer driven by promises, but carried by providence - straight into a life we had only imagined could be possible. That qualifies us to write a book of our own.

- The Best of the Abraham Books
Kathleen Mackenzie, author of "Not Manifesting? This Book is for You"
Ask and it is Given is quite possibly the best Abraham book I have read to date. I have attended lectures, have listened to their CD's and have read several of their books.
This is, in my opinion, the best of their products because the second half of this book gives many practical exercises supporting the success of each reader to more easily manifest for their best and highest good.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in deliberate creation. Please read with an open mind and an open heart....more info
- Before the Secret
Before The Secret, there was Ask and It Is Given. Someone gave this book to me at a time in my life when I was suffering from a serious illness. It reminded me that regardless of what is happening in my life, I can always connect with my innermost desires and trust the universe to work for me. The ideas and techniques in Ask and It is Given built upon my own personal framework called Option Method in a way that nothing else ever has. It gave me the extra help I needed to find the people who could save my life and I am eternally grateful to them and to Esther and Jerry Hicks.

- Thank You Abraham
Never have I read a work with so much repetition. It's as if the goal of the first 21 chapters was to see how many different ways one could phrase the same thought.
Chapter 22 offered a fresh perspective that I have not encountered elsewhere.
To be fair to the work, perhaps my experience would have been better had I not read "The Secret" and "A New Earth" prior to reading this one.
I fully embrace the power of positive manifestation. And there are wonderful books on the subject. I don't feel this one of the best, but I am pleased for all the readers who have been inspired by Abraham's message.

I have shared this book with many people in my life and they each find that their daily lives have more value and focus. The gifts of life are before each of us. We need to learn how to "ask" and then "receive" the gifts. This book has the roadmap! Great book. I finished the book and immediately started the first chapter again. ...more info

Any book written by Esther and Jerry Hicks is wonderful. I have seen them in person and have listened to the fabulous words spoken by Abraham through Esther. Abraham has quite a sense of humor and is such a joy to listen to. And Esther is the perfect vehicle for Abraham to speak through. If you are interested in the Law of Attraction and how it really works (The Secret is too simplified), then read this book or any book by Esther and Jerry.

This refers to the CD edition of ASK AND IT IS GIVEN. I have absolutely NO criticism of the message, only of the delivery. Jerry needs to get out of the way and let Abraham speak thru Esther. Jerry rushes through the message with no attempt to connect with the listener. We hear him "reading" the words without "feeling" them, so his delivery lacks passion and conviction. But when Abraham speaks thru Esther, words come to life, spirit "plays" with the audience, involves us, wraps its arms around us, even scolds us lovingly, and we welcome the Living Word into our hearts. The entire message of Abraham is all about "feeling", so the reader of the CD needs to convey emotion. If Esther can't serve as the vessel of delivery, perhaps a professional reader should be hired. (I would be happy to offer my services in this regard, if Abraham concurred). ...more info
- A Classic book that can change your life
Most channeled information is somewhat stilted because of the translation from spiritual language to English. This book is not. It tells it like it is, and gives definite steps to change your thinking so you can begin manifesting what you want in every part of your life. ...more info

- Same ol', same ol'
If you really want to learn about the Law of Attraction, read the Bible. That's where all of this "new thought" approach comes from. If the Bible's language is too archaic for you, read any of Catherine Ponder's books. If you insist on this one, however, don't buy the CD; buy the book instead. Jerry Hicks' voice is grating and lacks emotion or animation. I couldn't even make it through the first CD so I gave it to a friend who agrees that his voice is beyond irritating. ...more info
- A very good book
A very good book. However, could leave out the part of someone(Abraham) talking to the author. A better book is "The Power Intention" by Dr. Wayne Dyer....more info
- Amazing Book
Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther Hicks is a book that will help you create a life you desire and according to the book desire is a good and natural force within us. The book explains that we are so frustrated because we have trouble knowing how to ask for what we want. This book will help you attract the life you want by matching the "vibrational" energy of one's desires.
If you would like to experience inner peace and Spiritual Enlightenment about God in a seemingly hopeless world, May I suggest you read My book as well. (See Above)...more info
- My Second Copy!
I've bought a few hundred books from Amazon and I can't remember ever doing a review on a book that I have purchased. I almost have to for this book because it is one of my favorite books ever. This is my second copy of since my first one has been worn out, not sure if that says anything by itself. The processes and exercises given by Abraham are life-changing. I have gone on to purchase and read all of the books by Abraham-Hicks, but this is the one that I keep coming back to over and over again....more info
- Ask and it is given

Thank you , Cecily Quedenfeld...more info
- Life-changing Book
To describe this book as a wonderful, life-changing book does not give high enough praise. To follow the suggestions from Abraham, quoted in the book, literally allows anything into one's life, provided one is sincere and open to change. It has changed my view of my future profoundly! From a personal standpoint, I am much more joyous. From a business standpoint, my income has doubled in the past few months.
Try it -- you'll like it!
- Eyes wide open and loving it!
Want a book that wakes you up to how to achieve exactly what you have only visualized in your head? Then look no further, the specific information found in these pages are not for the weary. Those who understand (even the slightest) that there is more to life than just living each day as others dictate, then this is your book.
"Ask and it is Given" is a God send for those who ever asked; "What is my purpose, what am I supposed to be doing?" This book is also for those who understand that to achieve what you desire there is a process and it is no more complicated than believing!
Extremely powerful book....more info
- a true classic on the topic of Law of Attraction
Even before the Secret, there was Abraham. Am so glad that more people have found out about this book and Esther Hicks thanks to that movie. This is a book that I go back to time and time again. While the first half of the book can seen daunting and complex, the exercises in the second half of the book have been extremely valuable to me when it comes to manifesting.
From what I have seen, most Law of Attraction teachers are teaching these same things in their own words. This book is the foundation, if you ask me, since it comes direct from source. This is a much have for any Law of Attraction student....more info
- Glad I Finally Read This Book
I've had this book sitting on my desk for about a year now. I knew I bought it for some reason, just never got around to reading it until today.
I'm extremely thankful that I finally opened up this book today... I knew right from the start that this wasn't your standard fluffy self help book that's a good read, but doesn't change your life in any way whatsoever.
The things the author writes about in this book really make sense. I'm naturally skeptical when it comes to anything that lacks hard evidence, but whether or not the Law of Attraction is real, I can already tell it's based on proven psychological and linguistic principles.
I'm a slow reader and this book took me only a couple or a few hours to read. I'm not even sure how long it took to read actually, I was completely absorbed in what I was reading. I have not yet started the worksheets provided (about to start after I finish this review) but I'm very much looking forward to seeing results, namely with my business venture that only has 2 weeks worth of work left but I haven't been able to quit procrastinating due to my own self doubt.
That's one of the key areas of this book that really caught my attention. Michael talks about how to remove the self doubt from our lives that stops us from realizing our goals and desires. His remedy looks highly workable, so I'm gonna go ahead and get started on it right now...
If I can figure out how to update this review, I will try to give an update after going through the worksheet and actually exercising the principles offered in this book. Nonetheless, a very good, solid read....more info
- Processes are my friends :)
Love the processes! Gotta have processes! More processes!
Of course this book can change your life. Any Abraham book can. :) This one's probably my favorite though I only have it and _Power of Emotions_, so whenever I get all the rest I might change my mind. ;)
Love the title. Love everything. Love the processes.
Can't think of anything more to say at the moment....more info
- I love inspirational books... this one is a bunch of cheesy, empty fluff and obnoxious preaching about nothing. [...]
This review is from someone who reads, enjoys and believes in inspirational books. I bought this book per recommendation. What an unbelievable piece of [...]! Even thoroughly disappointed by the first chapters, I kept reading, hoping that good practical content would come later. It did not. The book is just full of empty buzz, totally basic common sense at best, cheap and obnoxious evangelist-style preaching about nothing and brain-washing at worst. Absolutely horrible and disappointing! The style really reminded me of the cheesy multi-level-marketing presentations and other [...]. Zero magic, no good content whatsoever. The book was so bad that it made me not want to read self-help books anymore....more info
Abraham/Hicks are the mother of all books on the "Law of Attraction". Period. They are not the initiators of the concept, but they are the initiators of the movement, for sure.
In the book "Ask and It is Given" you are given the exercises, steps, and tools to learn the art of manifestation. This book became another integral part in my study of manifestation. Abraham/Hicks became a major motivating force in my desire to become an author and partial impetus for my new book "Reality Creation 101".
In my opinion, if you wanna learn how to manifest you look to Abraham/Hicks....more info
- Best Explanation...
Best explanation of how our emotions/energy work in manafesting our reality that I have ever read - and I've read much of what is out there. Although the same messages are woven again and again throughout all these materials - none explains it in such a clear manner AND gives methods to attain the ultimate goal of keeping your energy/vibration at one with your desire.
I have personally purchased it for everyone in my life seeking the same answers.
This excellent book now has a permanent home on my nightstand. ...more info
