If you can get passed the initial idea that Esther can become "possessed" by a spiritual council whom they call themselves "Abraham," there are still some "questionable" messages in this book.
In a nutshell, you attract what you think about. Whether you don't want to attract it, or you do want to attract it. It doesn't matter. Thus, a person being robbed is at fault because that person brought it on themselves. Why? Due to the fact that they had thought about being robbed, and had a fear (emotion) which reinforces the thought of being robbed. In other words, that person attracted that particular situation to themselves. Same scenario for rape, murder etc.
I would recommend to read this book with caution. Basically, it teaches to turn a 'blind eye' to anything negative so that you don't attract it to yourself. My reservations about this book is that it goes against the teachings of Jesus. This book brings up moral and religious questions. Which I believe isn't necessarily a bad thing, as long as you know what is the right thing to do.
I think if Jesus followed what was written in this book, he would have walked right by the blind and sick because they were 'negative vibrations' and besides...those people brought it on themselves. Is that what he taught us? As we all know, he taught the complete opposite. Help the sick. Heal the blind.
There can be some positive messages in this book if you are talented enough to weed out the negative. Tune up your gardening skills.
If Esther Hicks is truly a communicating device for these so-called spirits, I've been wondering if they are actually evil spirits pretending to be good.
