It All Accelerated When Jerry Hicks Got Sick and Died
I know, I know, a lot of people don't even know that Jerry Hicks died.
It was well-known at the time, but since, there's been a lot of denial. Even the Abraham-Hicks website, more than three years after his death, has Jerry romping around with Esther on their monster us -- probably because it's impossible to line up the details of what really happened with all their miraculous claims.
Jerry Hicks death came six months after he rejected what his wife Esther preaches as the Basic Teachings of Abraham.
Doubt and disappointment swelled among followers.
The embarrassing and now abandoned attempt to pass Jerry Hicks' cancer off as a spider bite and his chemotherapy as a treatment to control his white blood cell count put Jerry and Esther in a corner from which there was no easy escape.

The weird thing is that the circumstances surrounding Jerry Hicks health leading up to his death (according to the never truly reliable Esther Hicks, on November 18) were widely known to involve treatments for cancer.
But Esther and Jerry never came clean about it while he was alive or told followers how it might fit into what they'd been pitching as easy cures for decades.
In practice now, Esther is unable to drop the charade. While Jerry's ashes were long ago scattered somewhere, the Abraham-Hicks website still claims that he and Esther continue their fairy tale life of riding around the country in their monster bus.
Jerry, their website, claims has a spring in his step that rivals men half his age. Hard to believe such a con continues, isn't it? Click here to see for yourself.
What does Esther Hicks say about sickness and death?
One of her choicer quotes:
"Death is an inevitable cycle. But sickness before death is a symptom of resistance. Most people think they've got to get sick to die. But, you could be like the cat who chooses to get run over. Or you could just lie down in your bed happily one night, so content and thoughtless, wanting nothing in this physical world; and just reemerge into Pure Positive Energy... You can play it out any way you choose."

Admitting they didn't honestly believe that magical nonsense might blow the lid off a scam that made them rich.
The news of Jerry Hicks' death after undergoing what he described as "heavy chemotherapy," even while still hoping to blow it off as treatment for a spider bite or to adjust his white blood cell count, seemed a startling rejection of what he and Esther Hicks pitched for more than two decades.
More examples follow, but here is an early look at what Esther Hicks (aka Abraham) has been telling workshops since the 1980s:
"But it does take the determination that you're going to put your thoughts upon something that does feel good. And so, here we're going to make a very bold statement: any disease could be healed in a matter of days, any disease, if distraction from it could occur and a different vibration dominate--and the healing time is about how much mix-up there is in all of that."

Since Jerry Hicks had Abraham on the pillow next to his at night and available 24X7, why was his first choice a rigorous course of chemotherapy?
Jerry and Esther Hicks refused to answer, and the Abe Forum, the content of which they tightly control through a paid intermediary, refused to allow discussion.

She forgot to tell Jerry (or to look in the mirror.)
"What makes people decline is that they start forking in the direction that doesn't allow them to be the receivers of this never-ending Stream of Well- Being. You don't have to decline... 'Happy, healthy, happy, healthy, happy, healthy, happy, healthy, dead!' That's Esther's plan..."
