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.
As you read, you?ll come to understand how your relationships, health issues, finances, career concerns, and more are influenced by the Universal laws that govern your time/space reality - and you?ll discover powerful processes that will help you go with the positive flow of life.
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
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. You will feel incredible and your life will change. ...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
- 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
- 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.

- 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!

- 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
- This is the magic dust!
If you are looking for The Magic Dust on how to apply the law of attraction in your life. This is it. It is specific on how you need to be to raise your vibration to attract what you want. It has assisted me in my business to attract first a law of attraction business, and a whole life changing flurry of personal development that has improved my life tremendously!...more info
- 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.

- 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
- 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
- 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?
- Ask and It Is Given
What I like about Esther Hick's book is her information comes directly from the group called Abraham not from someone else. Abraham gives step by step instruction on how to make changes in behavior that will give you the results you desire in life. There are also examples why the process does not work for someone and how to make changes so it will. By using the "pivot" technique thought patterns can quickly be changed to bring a person in alignment so they can receive that which they want. ...more info
- Attract Abundance
Esther and Jerry Hicks book "The Law of Attraction" is an effective tool in really attracting abundance into your life, and this includes all types of abundance from relationship, to health, wealth, and holistic well-being.
Contains great theory and even greater practical tips for you to try out for yourself.
I've tried a few 'law of attraction' approaches as suggested by Esther and Jerry Hicks and have already begun to see real results and experience new success in my life.
What I enjoy most about this book is the fact that it consists of channelled information from the group of entities that refer to themselves as Abraham. What a fascinating concept.
The wisdom in the book is totally awesome.

- 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
- 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
- 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.

- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- Amazing Book

This book will help you attract the life you want by matching the "vibrational" energy of one's desires.

- This book is Creepy
This book has been recommended to me by several people. I was given the audio version and couldn't even get through the first disk. Just gave me an overall dark and unsettled feeling, quite opposite the authors intent I'm sure. I would not recommend reading this book if you are seeking true "light". It has some powerful concepts that can be found in all good and truly enlightened and inspired self help books. This book is actually quite disturbing and if you read it for yourself It wont take long before you'll question the source of the authors inspiration....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' 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
- A self help book that really helps
I attended a workshop by Abraham some years ago where I purchased this book. I haven't read it cover to cover, but when I'm feeling the need for a lift, I open it anywhere and a few pages later I feel my mood elevating, and begin to remember that I can direct my thoughts to happier places by choice. ...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
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
- What are you prepared to do to have everything you ever dreamed of?
I wish I could say that I have won the lottery but I know not how the universe will answer my requests which is infinitely more exciting to think about than actually knowing and that's what being the deliberate creator of your own reality is all about! All you have to do is ask and be willing to ALLOW it to come to you! You leave the what, when, where and how to the universe to solve for you. A fair exchange for everything your heart desires, is it not? Allowing it to manifest is your only job which is what this book is designed to help you accomplish.
It has only been about 3 weeks since I purchased this first book but I have learned to turn my negative emotion into something that feels better and that alone is worth the price of the book! I have practiced some of the processes and I can tell you from personal experience that they do work if you will let them! This was the first book I have read by these two authors and I can't get enough!
I was feeling very depressed, tired of feeling negativity, boredom and the general frustration that I have felt for a long time. I needed something that would lift my spirits and help change my attitude about my home, my job, traffic, and my financial situation to name a few of the most common situations facing many of us.
I headed directly for the New Age section of my local Barnes and Noble as if I was guided by some unseen source, to that particular shelf, to that particular book on that particular day! From the first few pages of reading I began to feel better and I truly felt the essence of this phrase: "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." I was definitely ready!
I admit that I still had questions after reading this book but I continued on with the next book, "The Amazing Power of Intent" which defines more specifically how to go about working the processes. You can bet I will be reading the other books as well!
It isn't always easy to turn a lifetime of frustration and negativity into something positive but it can be done. If that is all that the universal powers that be have been waiting for me to do before offering me my every heart's desire then I choose to see only the positive from now on! I wish you every good thing life has to offer you on your creative journey!...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!
- This book is all you need to read
I was in Barnes in Noble yesterday looking for another spritual book, the day after i started reading "The Power Of The Subconsious By Joseph Murphy". My spriut was searching for more knowledge on LOA and the source within us. On the book shelf I saw The Secret (in which I have seen already), the master key system(which is just amazing), and Think and Grow rich(another great book by Mr. hill).
There was another book there called "The Code" in which i was intending on buying after i skimmed through the pages. But I just couldn't leave the isle just yet, it was like something was telling me that the reason I was there was not to get The Code. Then i beautiful Blue cover caught my eye spelling the words "Ask and It is Given". To myself I was like i asked for an awesome book on the source and theres a book standing out of all the others basically calling me.
I didn't know anything about Abraham(I do now!!!) at the time, but I knew I had to get it. I didn't have a doubt in my mind that it wasn't a scam book with the same rehashed mess that author's book in today's books that was used almost a centry ago. Since this had been the first time in over 3 years I have been inside a library and all of a sudden am called to drive and book I just went with the hunch.
So far I am loving the book, and have recently downloaded the audio tapes, and learned more about this non physical intelligence called abraham. When am reading the book it feels different from any other book I have read, anyways i recommend this book to everyone....more info

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
- 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.
"When Spirit rises and commands, the gods are ready to obey."
- James Allen, "As a Man Thinketh."
- 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
- 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
