Thankfully, I read 2 books during that time that turned it all around:
I don’t remember exactly how “Ask & It Is Given” came into my experience. I DO remember the goose bumps I felt as I read Jerry Hick’s preface to the book. In that moment, I knew without a doubt that “Ask & It is Given” was full of Truth. I also had a feeling that my life would change as a result of reading it.
Since that time, I’ve become a full-blown Abraham fanatic. I’m like a crazy Michael Jackson fan from the 80’s. You know the kind of fan I’m talking about: the one who cried throughout Thriller and wore “the glove” to the grocery store. That’s pretty much how I feel about Jerry, Esther, and Abraham.
And so…. I was extremely EMOTIONAL yesterday when I opened up an email to discover that Jerry Hicks had passed away. I burst into tears. I didn’t see that one coming.
Although Abraham states repeatedly that there is no death, I feel sad. I’m sad for Esther, and I’m sad that I’ll never get to meet Jerry in person. I would have liked to thank him for bringing Abe’s teachings into the world.
Without the teachings of Abraham in my life, this website would not exist. I would never have discovered my passion for writing, spirituality, or personal growth. I would not have had the courage to uncover my intuitive abilities. In fact I’d probably still be lying in bed 24/7, watching CSI.
So Jerry, this post is for YOU. I just want to say THANK YOU so very very much for all the joy your work has brought into my life. The gratitude I have for you is (as you describe in Ask & it is Given) “ineffable”. I have nothing but tremendous love for you, and I hope that wherever you are, you will remain “joyfully incomplete”.
With immense love & gratitude,
