Abraham Reveals the Secret Behind The Secret
>>Esther Hicks:More things.
Stand if you think it's you.
>>The woman:When my friends know that
I listen to Abraham
they said oh have you seen The Secret?
Esther is on The Secret.
And I said uh, no but
I got the DVD and you weren't on there.
Abraham wasn't on there
and so I thought
well they must have seen it
someplace else and got mixed up
with this, it's a very similar teaching.
And then somebody again said
well have you seen Abraham
on The Secret, and I said no
Esther and Abraham
are not on The Secret.
Oh yes they are, they are
and I was very confused about that.
Last night I found out
there are two versions of The Secret.
But I wondered whether Abraham
wanted to comment on how there are two
different versions of The Secret.
>>Esther Hicks:We would but it's a secret.[Laughing]
Well Jerry and Esther
were approached by the producer
of The Secret.
She wanted to do a series
of television movies
based upon the work of Abraham.
That was the way she
approached Jerry and Esther.
And so they met with her
and listened to her ideas
and agreed to have her come.
She came on one of the cruises
and brought her crew and
filmed the entire seminar and then
interviewed Jerry and Esther and Abraham
in front of a green screen
which was the footage
that was to be utilized on The Secret.
As The Secret unfolded
and Jerry and Esther saw the footage
while there were things that they
if they had been the creator of it
would have done differently
for the most part
they found it to be
an extremely uplifting
the powerful Law of Attraction.
And this very delightful woman
said that she would
find others who
understood Law of Attraction
and that they would put together
and Jerry and Ester recognized
some of the people
that were on The Secret
as people who had been
long time on their tape programs
and so on
and some that they had not known before
but Jerry as he watched it especially
found it to be uplifting.
for her it was a bit like
being someone who hears perfect pitch
and even though
there is a beautiful piece of music being played
if it's off just a little
it was discordant to her.
But for the most part
they liked it very much.
And then about 200,000 of those DVDs
that had Esther's face and Abraham's voice
It was supposed to be a television movie
but the network in Australia
that was going to air it
for some reason was not.
And so in order to recoup their dollars
the production company
began looking for
other avenues in order to
market it and did.
Again Jerry and Esther felt uncomfortable with the -
the way it was being marketed.
Not because there was something wrong with it
But it was just
different from the style.
Jerry and Esther are liking the idea of
allowing things to be
and it felt a little more assertive
than they were comfortable with.
it was really not their business so much
it was the production company's
and so Jerry and Esther
just used that experience
as an opportunity to
try to turn downstream
over and over again
and were doing a good job
of maintaining their balance.
And then they got an e-mail
from the producer who said
the contract that we have with you -
because Jerry and Esther
had sought out
an intellectual property rights attorney
before they allowed all of this to be filmed -
is hindering us from marketing this
in the way that we want to.
So you have two options
you can either turn over
your intellectual property rights to us
or we will have to edit you out.
And for Jerry and Esther
that was a very easy thing.
Turn over our property rights.
Be edited out.
And even though
being edited out
was certainly not something that they wanted
it was clearly downstream for them.
Now there are those who said
oh there were other options.
You could sue.
You could hold to your contract.
But all of that was upstream
for Jerry and Esther
they just took
the path of least resistance
then they began to receive
thousands upon thousands of e-mails
from people who had seen it and loved it
and wanted more
who ordered it and were unhappy
that Abraham was not present
and so Jerry and Esther
wrote an e-mail
that they distributed
to let people know
that nothing has gone wrong
just enjoy what's coming next.
Feel appreciation for what was there.
And so that really is the story
and that's about all there is to the story.
Nothing has gone wrong.
Everything is right.
The way we like to tell the story is that
Jerry and Esther
have been doing this work
for a very long time
and they had set forth
a very powerful vibrational escrow
of which this film was a part.
In other words
there is no question
that that was based upon
the dialogue and the work
that Jerry and Esther have been about
for all of these years.
There's no question about that.
And we certainly understand
that after the fact now
the woman who is selling it
is not acknowledging
that Jerry and Esther were a part of it
she can't acknowledge
that they are a part of it
without detracting from what
she has going on.
And Jerry and Esther -
while Esther suffered a great deal from it initially-
have got themselves into alignment about it
and the whole of the matter is
that they are benefiting enormously
from this exposure to The Secret.
There are all kinds of people out there
that are being
activated to the idea that
you can create your own reality
and that the Law of Attraction abounds.
We acknowledge that this woman
held to her vision very tightly
and created what she wanted to create.
And we will say to you
especially in the context of what's going on here
what she did was not nice.
It was not nice that she did
to Jerry and Esther what she did
but nice is beside the point
don't you think?
In other words
she came into alignment
with what she wants
she gave her undivided attention to it
the universe is yielding to her
she's getting what she is wanting
and for -
and Jerry and Esther
came around to understanding
for someone else to receive
what they are wanting
does not in anyway detract from them.
In other words
no one can detract from the work
that Jerry and Esther are about
this is a secret that keeps on giving.
The best part-
and the most interesting thing
about all of this
and this is the thing that is stunning
from our broader non-physical perspective -
The Secret movie
tells a story
about knowledge being suppressed.
That's sort of the basis of The Secret
that there are laws and things that
you have not been allowed to know
and we think
that by taking Abraham
and Jerry and Esther's part out of The Secret
they are doing the very thing again
that they used as the basis
for their movie.
Unless you put the non-physical part of it in
then you've left out the guidance.
And when you've left out the guidance
then you just leave people out there
to all kinds of other
No one really gets a bead
on how to deliberately create.
When your traveling
from point A to point B in your vehicle
it's easy to know
just head in that direction
and keep going and you'll get there.
But there are all kinds of people
who would like to go from
sickness to wellness
or from a bad relationship
to a better relationship
or from confusion to clarity
who haven't been able to quantify those journeys.
And the secret that -
there isn't a secret.
Calling Law of Attraction a secret
is like calling gravity a secret.
Like if we don't tell them
they will fall up instead of down.
If we don't teach them about gravity
they might throw a baseball
and it might just go off into outer-space
unless they know that there's gravity
and we say
that will never happen.
Law of Attraction abounds
and there's not a shred of evidence
to the contrary of it.
And the secret that has been suppressed
is that you are Source Energy
in physical bodies.
That is the secret that is suppressed.
Even though everybody in the world
is an extension of Source Energy.
In other words
people don't keep the secret
because they are trying to deprive you of it.
They keep the secret
because they don't think your ready to hear it.
there's nothing wrong with that is there?
Because a teacher
a really good teacher
understands where his student is.
>>The woman:Very interesting.
>>Esther Hicks:So really
the story -
the story of The Secret is
I want to tell the world
the secret to creating
but I see that the world isn't ready
for the big story
so I'll just tell them the mini version
and then I'll call it a secret
while I continue to keep the secret.
That's basically what happens.
