“Ask and It is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks

Louise Hay called them “some of the best teachers on the planet today.”

Dr. Wayne Dyer said they are “the great Masters of the Universe!”


Esther and Jerry Hicks had already spent over two decades traveling around the world teaching the concept of Law of Attraction before the film and book The Secret released, through which most people know about the concept. It is therefore very easy to see the influence of their writings on The Secret and other books on the subject.


Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks teaches you how to manifest your desires and live the abundant, joyous and fulfilling life you deserve.

The book will help you understand how your health, relationships, finances, career, and over all state of being are influenced by the Universal laws that govern your time/space reality and you will discover extremely powerful yet simple processes that will help you get aligned with the universal flow of life.

The book explains that the only thing that matters is how you feel, and you can control how you feel by managing your thoughts. It teaches you how to allow well-being to flow. It also states that well-being is always predominant, so the quality of any experience is determined by the degree to which you allow well-being to flow freely. What you give attention to determines how you feel, and how you feel determines what kinds of experiences you have. Everything you experience is a faithful reflection of how you feel. The only thing that really matters is paying attention to the way you feel, and allowing your energy to flow in a way that feels good to you.

Ask and It’s Given really emphasises on learning from life by listening to your own emotional guidance system and responding to that.


There is nothing in all of the Universe more important for anyone to understand than how the vibration they are offering is matching the vibrations of their desires, and the way you feel is your indicator of whether you are allowing your connection to Source or not. Every good feeling; every positive creation; all your abundance, clarity, health, vitality, and Well-Being-and all the things that you consider to be good, are dependent upon the way you are feeling right now and on the relationship that feeling-vibration has to the vibration of who you really are and what you really desire.

But there is a much easier way of going about the Deliberate Creation of your own experience and of fulfilling your intention for this joyous life experience, and that is an understanding and application of the Art of Allowing. It is the conscious, gentle guiding of your thoughts in the general direction of the things that you desire. And as you come to understand this powerful Stream of Life that we are explaining, and as you get a glimpse of the larger picture of who-you-really-are, and, most important, as you become convinced that your true work is to simply realign with who-you-really- are, the Art of Allowing will become second nature to you.

The most common misunderstanding that prevents people from getting control of a situation and gaining their personal balance is the belief that I need to get to where I want to be right now or as quickly as possible. We certainly understand your desire to find the answers to your questions quickly or to solve your problems as fast as you can, but still, that urge works against you. When you feel an urgency to be somewhere else, you are pushing hard against where you are. That is upstream. But an even more important flaw in the premise you are beginning from is this: In your belief that you must hurry to an improved place, you are discounting the power of the Stream, its speed, its direction, and its promise. And in the forgetting of those things, you are definitely pointed in the opposite direction of who-you- truly-are and all that you have become.

If you are using any other influence as your source of guidance, you will get lost and go off track, for no others understand, as you do, the distance between where you are and where you want to be. But even though they cannot understand your desires purely, they will still continually add their desires to the mix. And so, only when you pay attention to the way you feel can you guide yourself steadily toward your own goals.

It is extremely important that you know where you are in relationship to where you want to be in order to effectively move closer to where you want to be. An understanding of both where you are and where you want to be is essential if you are to make any deliberate decisions about your journey.

You are surrounded by many influences in your physical environment, and often, others ask or insist that you behave differently in order to positively affect their experience. You are deluged with laws, rules, and expectations that are imposed by others, and almost everyone seems to have an opinion about how you should behave. But it is not possible for you to stay on track between where you are and where you want to be if you are using those kinds of outside influences to guide you.

The greatest gift that you could ever give to another is your own happiness, for when you are in a state of joy, happiness, or appreciation, you are fully connected to the Stream of pure, positive Source Energy that is truly who you are. And when you are in that state of connection, anything or anyone that you are holding as your object of attention benefits from your attention.

Your happiness does not depend on what others do, but only upon your own vibrational balance. And the happiness of others does not depend on you, but only on their own vibrational balance, for the way anyone feels, in any moment, is only about their own mix of Energies. The way you feel is simply, clearly, and always the indicator of the vibrational balance between your desires and your vibrational offering, which, from your vantage point, you have launched.

Your vibrational Universe has the Law of Attraction as its basis. That means that your Universe is about inclusion. When you give your attention to something that you desire and you say yes to it, you are including it in your vibration. But when you look at something you do not want and you say no to it, you are including it in your vibration. When you give no attention to it, you do not include it, but you cannot exclude anything that you are giving your attention to, because your attention to it includes it in your vibration, every time, without exception.


Spiritual self-development author Wayne Dyer in his foreword to Ask and It Is Given, described the book as containing powerful universal truths. It is definitely the Hicks’ most comprehensive work, consisting of all the basic ‘Abraham’ teachings and 22 ‘processes’ or exercises to put them into practice.

Abraham-Hicks explains why we still often fail to manifest what we intend, why we keep getting what we don’t want, and don’t get what we do want. Ask And It Is Given simply and clearly explains the glitch. Then shows you how to work through it. It has practical exercises that really work!


“This is plain and simply, one of the most powerful books I have ever read. One’s entire life can change because of what is found here.” – Neale Donald Walsch

“This is a great book! My wife and I have enjoyed these profound and extremely practical Abraham teachings for several years” – John Gray

Jerry and Esther Hicks’ bestselling title ‘Ask and it is Given’ is an absolute must for anyone interested in the law of attraction, and using it to better their lives, finances and relationships.” – Soul & Spirit magazine


This book has the potential to recondition one’s mental and emotional state. You can read Ask And It Is Given as a daily spiritual practice. So it’s useful to read it in small bites, then letting it sink, understanding it and then applying the principles in your life. Make it a part of your philosophy before you move on to the next concept. Give yourself enough time to really assimilate the new perspective.

I have found it extremely helpful reading a little every morning first thing when I wake up and — especially! — last thing before I sleep. I found it sets an energy field that is so uplifting and empowering.

Ask And It Is Given offers you 22 amazing tools that can turn your life around. You can transform negative emotions and energy states almost immediately! Do the exercises— they will change your life!

It feels so wonderful and so empowering to be able to take control of your life experiences. You can even read it every time you feel negative emotions start building up.

Ask and It Is Given is really a work of philosophy and explains there is no such thing as ‘fate’ directing your life according to some predetermined pattern. You are a co-creator with the source (God or universal law) and can shape your life as you desire.

It explains how our desires morph into beliefs, and beliefs make us who we are. When we deliberately choose our desires and beliefs, we begin to master our reality.

I would go as far as saying that if there was only one book you could read in this lifetime than this is The book. It teaches us on how to feel good in this Law of Attraction-based existence which is the most important thing anyone could learn, our physical experience is based on that and put into practice. The book makes the Law of Attraction principle so clear and easy to understand. It is a revolutionary book and if I could, I would make it part of syllabus for our education system.

I heartily recommend this amazing book to anyone who wants to live life deliberately and have the most enjoyable ride on this physical experience.
