If you don't know their background, you cannot understand where that channeling stuff came from...
What "Abraham" says through Esther is nothing more than a synthesis of a lot of "feeling good" and "positive thinking" books that were available in the seventies (and earlier).
It may be interesting to know that Esther met Jerry in Fresno, CA in 1976 during one of his Amway seminars on "Think and Grow Rich".
As a former Amway distributor, I can tell you that (in those days) selling these "inspirational" books became a major business, even more interesting (financially) than selling Amway products.
So Jerry Hicks was already earning money with "LoA" stuff, long before the term "Law of Attraction" was coined, long before "Abraham".
If Esther Weaver never would have met Jerry Hicks, "Abraham" wouldn't exist.
Jerry Hicks invented "Abraham". Jerry Hicks was "Abraham".
