"The Secret" - which I haven't seen yet - talks about the Law of Attraction. Esther and Jerry Hicks were involved in the movie which, much like "What the Bleep?" has attracted a bit of a cult following.
"What the Bleep?" was shown to have many holes in it. "The Secret" is pretty new out and I have as yet not seen too much written on the veracity of its claims. Maybe it is time to do a Google search.
Jerry and Esther Hicks have a book called: "The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham". They also have another one called "Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires".
Go to Amazon and look for the second book, then click on "Read all customer reviews", then "Lowest Rating First". The reviews of those who were unimpressed make for some interesting reading.
Here is a quote from one of the reviewers:
I am part of the way through the book now and I decided to look at the authors' website. I listened to their audio files and honestly it shocked me. It appears that Jerry Hicks started out as an "entertainer", then did "Think and grow rich" seminars and then, when Abraham started to speak to Esther, they consulted with their "business" friends.
It would seem, from that part of the review, that these people, like so many others in the industry are really just salespeople selling a dream.
However, that is not to say that there isn't anything of value in what the Hicks say. There is probably a lot of good too.
Here is an interesting link in which Esther and Jerry Hicks appear to distance themselves from the movie, "The Secret" - [integrationcoach.wordpress.com
Another thread on Rick Ross, at [board.culteducation.com
] has some stuff from "The Secret", which reveals some of the beliefs these people work by.
