The Astonishing Power of Emotions Reviews

  • Angela

    I'm a huge fan of Esther and Jerry Hicks and the teachings of Abraham. I've read Ask and is Given, subscribe to Abraham-Hicks monthly CD's and have watched The Secret. I truly believe we can be, do, or have anything we want. The challenge is learning how to keep yourself feeling good, going with the flow, totally allowing all that you desire to manifest. This book really helps put into practice The Art of Allowing.

  • David Hooper

    I've read a lot of books in this subject (power of thought) and this is one of the best. Looked at things from a different, yet familiar perspective. Also give about 30 common issues you may be facing in your life, from death of a parent, to breakup of a relationship, and shows a strategy for dealing with these things.

    This book is along the lines of "The Secret" but much deeper. If you're looking for the real nuts and bolts of how the Law of Attraction works, I recommend this book.

    There is not one book written by Esther and Jerrmy Hicks that I could rate under 10 stars. But then again, it will not be for many people I know. If it is for you, you will feel the same way, and you will be comprehending your Vortex.

    I recommend this book for anyone who has genuinely struggled with religion in their lives, and is called to that which is the much bigger picture. THis book can speak worlds if you are ready to receive it!

    What a good book to start the year. I love it.

    While this is the 8th Abraham-Hicks book I’ve reviewed, it is also one of my favorites.

    is an excellent introduction to the Abraham material, and

    features many exercises or games to improve your life, but the strength of

    is its simplicity. At any point in life, on any subject, we are either sailing along smoothly or putting up resistance, and this book employs the simple analogy of heading downstream or upstream. When we’re “downstream” on a topic, results come easily. If we’re “upstream,” as much as we want good results, they continually elude us.

    Emotions let us know whether we’re headed downstream or upstream, or to what degree we are embracing or resisting what we want in our lives. In simple terms, good-feeling emotions indicate downstream movement, and bad-feeling emotions upstream. To achieve our desires, we need to change bad feelings to good, but this can only be done incrementally. There is no faking it—we are where we are emotionally and results will show that. And yet, we can slowly change how we feel about any topic, thus improving our results.

    Let me take a step backwards to say that “Abraham” is reportedly a group of non-physical entities that speak through Esther Hicks for the upliftment of humanity. But you don’t need to believe that to benefit from the material. If the advice and processes offered work, what does the source matter?

    After setting up some basic ideas in the first few chapters (for example that we are spiritual beings in the physical world), Abraham addresses specific life challenges, such as disliking a job, not having enough money, being married to a terminally ill person, losing a pet, being divorced against your wishes, being back-stabbed at work or socially, etc. In each case Abraham steps through the negative thoughts typical of each experience. Next he changes the internal dialog incrementally, to improve the emotions a little at a time. This might just be from revenge to anger to frustration at first. The point is that the individual must actually believe the slightly-better-emotionally statements in order to really feel better, which is the key to turning the situation around. This process might take some time to get to happy results, but will eventually work to improve both the situation and how we feel about it.

    The final chapter is one of my favorite excerpts from the live Q & A Abraham sessions that Esther Hicks does all over the world. This material is also recorded on an included CD. As they say, you needn’t figure out the source of your problems or where you went wrong. All you have to do is reach for a feeling of relief, a slightly better emotion. And repeat as needed. True that it sounds simpler than it is in practice, but practicing does make it easier, and there are plenty of examples throughout the book. And the part on why the older a person gets the grumpier they usually get was enlightening. I’ve gotta cut that out!

    I recommend this book to anyone who has read

    and wants more details. It’s also a boost for Abraham fans who have experimented a bit with improving their self-talk and emotions—this book simplifies the process. It’s also a joyful and uplifting experience just reading it.

    This book has been written with its point of attraction kept in mind. For me it was more of revising my audios of Abraham and something I can store for revisions everytime I want to refer back...

  • Noor Abu Hassan

    Amazing.beyond thankful.

  • Molly

    This book teaches that, wherever we are, we can choose thoughts that feel a little better or a little worse. Abraham/Hicks says if you choose the slightly better feeling thought it makes all the difference.

    The book is full of scenarios where we see the progression from awful feeling thoughts to less awful to better feeling. At each juncture there was a sense of relief. I found it helpful and doable.

    Esther Hicks channeled this book from her "higher self," an entity she calls Abraham. It is about how one can deliberately create their experience by being aware of their emotions. It also gives advice on how to focus on those things that make you feel good, because by doing so, Hicks believes it will "bring you into alignment" with your higher being. And, therefore, you'll allow the goodness of creation to flow through you.

    pg 25

    My favorite part of this book was contained within the first 45 pages in which Abraham talks in a general way about emotions and their latent power. The rest of the book contained examples of how to apply this teaching to specific questions Hicks received at her various workshops.

    I didn't find the second portion as helpful because, first of all, it felt like we were focusing on current conditions. Secondly, the answer to every question was to soften the emotions by looking for things that made you feel good about in whatever subject was being discussed. Then, roll with that until the emotions shift. Honestly, it felt repetitive after the first two or three examples.

    I suppose if one of the questions had applied directly to my life experience right now, then maybe I would have had a different view of this book. As it is, I prefer

    to this.

    deals with the topic in a more general way and I got more out of it.

    I can understand the criticisms of Hicks as a life philosophy: that she teaches people to ignore their problems, to be selfish, to be utterly self absorbed. But wasn't it a teaching of the Buddha that the first love you should attend to, before you can offer unconditional love to others, is self love. You build a base of love and everything else flows from that. I see Hick's teachings as the same kind of thing — self love first.

    I think another point to bring up before closing the discussion of this book is the idea that the Law of Attraction, so beloved of New Age teachers and authors, functions rather like gravity. You don't have to teach someone how to utilize gravity because it just works. The Law of Attraction is the same kind of deal and isn't that nice to know.

    So, no matter what you're doing, thinking or feeling, you're not going to float off into outer space because gravity has got both of your feet safely planted on the ground. I like to approach any teachings about the Law of Attraction the same way. I can play with ideas and techniques, but at the end of the day, it's going to do its thing whether I'm paying attention to it or not.

    Recommended for readers who like New Age materials or love the teachings of Abraham Hicks.
