Abraham and The Kabrini - Similar or one and the same? PART 1

Prior to the passing of the late, great Dr. Wayne Dyer, I received an email from him with a link to a video in it.  That video (which is in this post, so be sure to scroll down and check it out!)  introduced me to Esther Hicks.  At the time, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it.  I probably wouldn't have given it much credit had it not come from Dr. Dyer, whom I was and am a great admirer of.  I still have not read all of the Dr. Dyer books backed up on my Kindle, but have read many.  So I watched, and I thought, "Who is this woman?",  "Why is she speaking this 'weird' way?", "Why does she keep saying 'we' instead of 'I'?" and "Why does she keep referring to 'Esther' as if that were someone else?  Isn't she Esther?"   

Afterwards, however, certain things must have resonated because they kept coming back to me and I found I wanted to know more.  I remember thinking that if I could read more on this, rather than having to hear it (which just seemed too odd to me), there might actually be something good there.  So that's how I started.  I only read things, which felt better as it allowed me to avoid hearing it and in that way, I was able to sort of ease my way into it.

I soon realized that what attracted me to these teachings was the similarity between Esther's "Abraham" and the Kabrini!  Esther describes Abraham not as an individual, but  rather a collective consciousness of higher intelligence...Sound familiar?  With messages of well being for all of us humans...Sound familiar?

Keep an open mind.  Read on.  And you, too may become an Abraham-Hicks YouTube junkie.  Or not, and that's OK, too.  


Esther Hicks (born Esther Weaver) is an American inspirational speaker and author.  She has co-authored nine books with her late husband, Jerry Hicks, presented numerous workshops on the law of attraction and appeared in the original version of the 2006 film, The Secret.  The Hicks' works are, according to Esther Hicks, "translated from a group of non-physical entities called Abraham."  Hicks describes what she does as "tapping into infinite intelligence."

ESTHER HICKS
Excited about the clarity and practicality of the translated word from the Beings who call themselves Abraham, Esther and Jerry Hicks began disclosing their amazing Abraham experience to a handful of close business associates in 1986. Recognizing the practical results being received by themselves and by those people who were asking practical questions and then applying Abraham’s answers to their own situations, Esther and Jerry made a deliberate decision to allow the teachings of Abraham to become available to an ever-widening circle of seekers of how to live a happier life.

Using their San Antonio, Texas, conference center as their base, Jerry and Esther have traveled to approximately 50 cities a year since 1989, presenting interactive Law of Attraction workshops to those leaders who gather to participate in this expanding stream of progressive thought. And although worldwide attention has been given to this philosophy of Well-Being by Leading Edge thinkers and teachers who have, in turn, incorporated many of Abraham’s Law of Attraction concepts into their best-selling books, scripts, lectures, and so forth, the primary spread of this material has been from person to person—as individuals begin to discover the value of this form of spiritual practicality in their personal life experiences.




Basic Principles of Abraham-Hicks




According to Esther and Jerry Hicks, Abraham is a group of entities that are "interpreted" by Esther Hicks. Abraham have described themselves as "a group consciousness from the non-physical dimension." They have also said, "We are that which you are. You are the leading edge of that which we are. We are that which is at the heart of all religions." Abraham has said through Esther that whenever one feels moments of great love, exhilaration, or pure joy, that is the energy of Source, and that is who Abraham "is".
"Jerry and Esther never used the word channeling," Abraham clarifies. "It is used when applied to them, but they have never used it, because it means many things of which they are not, you see."

"You could leave the channeling out of it. Call it inspiration; that's all it is. You don't call the basketball player a channeler, but he is; he's an extension of Source Energy. You don't call the surgeon a channeler, but he is. You don't call the musician, the magnificent master musician, you don't call him a channeler, but he is. He's channeling the broader essence of who he is into the specifics of what he is about."
Esther herself calls Abraham "infinite intelligence," and to Jerry they are "the purest form of love I've ever experienced." Her teachings (referred to as Abraham–Hicks teachings) are based on this experience. The basic tenets of the teachings include that people create their own reality through their thoughts, that emotions are constantly guiding people toward where they want to go, that life is supposed to be fun and easy. The essence of Abraham–Hicks' teachings since 1986 has been presented as follows:








  • Individuals are physical extensions of the non-physical.
  • People are in their bodies because they chose to be.
  • The basis of life is freedom; the purpose of life is joy.
  • People are creators; they create with their thoughts.
  • Whatever people can imagine totally & completely, by creating a perfect vibrational match, is theirs to be, or do, or have.    
  • Individuals choose their creations as they choose their thoughts.

  • Emotions indicate what people are creating, either consciously or unconsciously.
  • The Universe adores people; it knows their broadest intentions.
  • Individuals are invited to happily relax into their natural well-being, and know that all is well.
  • Life is not meant to be a struggle, but a process of allowing.
  • People are creators of "thought-ways" on their unique "paths of joy".
  • Actions and money are by-products of focusing on joy.
  • Individuals may depart their body without illness or pain.
  • People cannot die; their lives are everlasting.
  • The nature of the universe is infinite and expanding.
  • Any desire born in one can be fulfilled.
  • Individuals are not only a part of the universe but are the very source of it.
A large part of Hicks' work centers around the Law of Attraction, a concept written about in the early 1900's by William Walker Atkinson (1862-1932) in his book Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World (1906).


OK, the video has been taken down off of YouTube, but I found the audio and a still from the meeting between Esther Hicks and Dr. Wayne Dyer and here it is!  This is  what started it all for me.  This was my introduction to Esther Hicks and the teachings of Abraham, known as "Abraham-Hicks":                                                                                                                                          

Next week, in Part 2, the Hayhouse Radio podcast, "Ask and it is Given" gets much more detailed with specifics.  This is enough for Week One...baby steps!

Excerpt From The Kabrini Message.  At this point, Jeffrey Driscoll (our main character) is at The United Nations in Vienna where U.S. Army General Hodge is showing him the first messages transmitted by The Kabrini:


But it seems they were disgusted by the fact that we are still a conglomeration of individual nation-states…”
“Yep, down here on Earth, we’re still slugging it out with each other to be King of the Hill,” Driscoll interrupted. Hodge shot him a dirty look for what he perceived to be a cheap shot at his chosen profession. “So, in other words,” Driscoll continued, ignoring the general’s sneer, “Unlike us humans, the Kabrini have transcended the petty, bickering stage of evolution.”
“Yes, something like that,” Hodge answered, still looking annoyed. “Apparently, they’re at the ‘one big happy family’ stage.” Hodge didn’t even attempt to hide his disgust as he rolled his steely blue eyes. He reached up, tapped the current screen to close it and grabbed a new window of Kabrini messages entitled, Social and Economic Discussions, May. Driscoll immediately devoured the series of messages as he half-listened to General Hodge’s explanation of them.
“Anyway, as you can see here, when we explained that there were poor, desert countries, unable to grow enough food to support their ever-expanding population, they sent us information on converting the abundant sunlight in these desert areas to electrical energy to run pumps for irrigation.”
“But we already know how to do that,” Driscoll responded as he continued reading the screen.
“Right…and that’s exactly what we told them. So, they sent us information on small nuclear power plants to furnish energy to those remote areas…”
“But we already know how to do that, too,” Driscoll interjected. He looked away from the holographic screen and stared at Hodge.
“Correct, and we told them that. So, they sent us information on low cost housing and synthetic food production…”
“And you told them we could do that, too,” Driscoll interrupted again. He was now sitting on Hodge’s desk with his arms crossed and a worried look on his face.
“Right. So, now…well now, they just want to know what our problem is.”
Driscoll turned back to the screen and scanned to the middle of the page:
UN: Yes, we already know how to produce synthetic food.
Kabrini: Then why are you not doing these things? Is there a problem? Or are you a stubborn, uncivilized race?
UN: We are not stubborn. This is just how things are set up on our planet. Each country on Earth is responsible for its own people. Of course, some countries help out other countries from time to time, but in the end, each nation is responsible for its own political, social and economic systems.
Kabrini: How could you possibly have developed the technology for space travel and the ability to communicate with an advanced alien civilization and still be so socially primitive? How can you not care for your own people? Do you not realize that you are all connected?
Beads of sweat had materialized on Driscoll’s brow, and he quickly wiped them away with his sleeve. “So, they basically perceive us as a race of high-tech barbarians.”
“I think they believe we already know too much for our own good,” Hodge answered as he absentmindedly tinkered with the Newton’s Cradle on his desk. He lifted a shiny metal sphere on the far end and let it drop, and the ball made a clink as it knocked it into the sphere next to it. This set all five spheres in motion, and they continued to swing back and forth in a hypnotic, rhythmic dance as Hodge continued. “When we told them that we are still fighting wars, they were dumbfounded. They say they’re surprised we humans didn’t annihilate each other ages ago. Frankly, I’ve thought the same thing many times before…”
“Okay…so where do we stand now?” Driscoll asked, looking back towards the floating screen. “Where is the most recent series of messages?”
“That’s it,” Hodge replied grimly. “Their last message to us is on the bottom of that screen.”
Driscoll’s eyes quickly skimmed to the end of the transcript, finally resting on the very last message, which was received more than two weeks earlier:
Kabrini: Until you can prove that you are a responsible race, we will cease all communications with Earth.
UN: We assure you that we are a responsible race. How can we prove this to you?
Kabrini: You must make widespread social changes to improve your people’s general situation. Remember what we have discussed. The answers are right before you. We will reestablish communications if and when you make these changes.
UN: If we cannot communicate with you, how will you know when we have implemented these changes?
Kabrini: We will know. We always know. Until then, farewell and good luck.
When he finished reading, Driscoll stumbled to the other side of Hodge’s desk and collapsed in the chair. His mess of brown hair was now drenched with sweat, and he cradled his head in his trembling hands. “So, basically, we’re not worth the risk to them.”
“I guess not,” Hodge answered matter-of-factly. “Or at least not until we make some serious global changes. And as you can imagine, the UN Council is not about to roll over that easily.”
Driscoll breathed a shuddering sigh and looked up at the ceiling, his face completely drained of color. He could feel his lifelong dream slipping away, all because of something completely out of his control—the inferiority of mankind.









Quotes From The Kabrini Message vs. Abraham:


- Abraham








On the long road to greatness, the first step begins with the truth.  At long last, your journey has begun.

- Abraham






We are all connected. Deep down you have always known, Jeffrey. We have reached out to you many times throughout your lifetime, and you have never failed us. If it were not for you, mankind may never have discovered our message. We want to thank you for listening…for hearing us…even when others did not or could not believe. 
                                                        - The Kabrini Message

… you missed the messages right in front of you. Yet this is to be expected. You are only human…you have much to learn. Be alert and aware. Pay attention to the signs around you. Open your eyes, and you will find the way.

 "A Step by Step Guide to Staying on Your High Flying Disc":



High Flying Disc Philosophy:  

Stay on your "High Flying Disc" and DO NOT allow any low fliers on board!  

It's OK to want to help, but DO NOT climb down.  They need to rise up! They may not ever do it.  They may not ever get it.  You may need to leave them there.  That's OK.    You just stay on your own high flying disc and again, DO NOT, under any circumstances, dip down to interact with a "low flier"!  The best help you can offer is to lead by example.
