What can I say? Quite frankly I don't buy it. I don't believe she is chanelling because of the quality (lack of) of the information and I just don't warm to her as a person. She seems false. The disturbing thing is how sycophantic the audiences always seem to be. I think this woman could tell them that cocoa pops are the reincarnation of Jesus Christ and they would believe her.
I have recently realised I don't believe in god, this is after many years when I was in my 20's and teens of being a born again christian and then going through various beliefs that all entailed a god, in a spiritual sense rather than religous.
If I watch videos of preachers on youtube it seems to me that the congregation have left their mental faculties outside the door. There is something speciific about their expressions and I see the same thing in people watching Esther Hicks.
What do you think?
I have read some of her work and it is decent LOA material.
But since the first time I read and heard Hicks I felt it was someone who had studied the Seth material and decided to simplify and make it presentable to a wider audience.
Of the 3 options - she's lying, she thinks she's channeling but it's really just herself or it's totally real - I can't get away from suspecting the first 2.
In fact I suspect all channeling is just inner wisdom. Except Seth, that material really delivers what a supernatural entity SHOULD deliver - information beyond what is currently being re-hashed over and over in different words. A LOT of new information. Even things that transcend the Eastern philosophies. Supernatural claims should eaisly have supernatural results. Period.
Also some science that has come true, not just nonsense hiding as science.
However, it's worth checking out one of her basic LOA books as a guide and getting involved for yourself. Free youtube videos or torrents. LOA can be true on many different levels, even if the metaphysical level wasn't as real as thought it can work on a practical level AND it can cause one to harbor more positive states. So either way you win.
