Product Description

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¡ªand 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¡ªand this book will show you how to make it so in every way!

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

  • Amazing, life-changing advice
    I used to think that Law of Attraction was just some New Age philosophy. Not any more. I have used the strategies in this book to become a happier, more successful person....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
  • 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
  • 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!

  • Thank you, Abraham for Shining Your Light thru Esther!
    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
  • 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.

  • 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
    An amazing book . Anything I have ever ordered from Amazon has always come earlier than expected ( great fore me ! ) and I have always been happy and satisfied . I will continue to use and appreciate the promptness and care you continue to give .
    Thank you , Cecily Quedenfeld...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
  • 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
    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
  • HOPE
    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
    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
  • 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!

  • 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
  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • You must have the audio book version
    The material is excellent and the audio book makes it easier to absorb. You can listen to sections over and over again....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
    Ask and It Is Given is a truly awesome and wonderful book that a real eye-opener! Great book to start connecting with you Higher Self. And the rest is Joy!...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
  • Things that make you go hmmmm...
    I looked at this book because I heard a lot about it and wanted to see for myself what all the fuss was all about. My first clue that this book was a horse of a different color was when I found it in the "metaphysical" section of the bookstore.

    I have to be honest though, I never made it through the whole book. It centers around this "spirit" called Abraham and all the advice and teaching it gave to the authors.

    Definitely for the "New Age" crowd, if this kind of thing interests you, then for the type of book that it is, its a good one. The book has 22 sections, whose purpose is to help you achieve your goals in life by asking you some reflective types of questions- which I did find motivating. Although not my cup of tea, the book is quite popular and I can recommend it to anyone looking for something different and inspiring.

  • 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
  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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

  • 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.
