Abraham: No Gain In Pain – Esther & Jerry Hicks

Abraham talks about the common belief: “There is no gain without pain” and explains why there is no gain in pain.

“We have to say to you that creation through action is mediocre at best in terms of the results it brings to you and that creation through alignment of energy is where all the masters and all of those that you revere have found their place. You can not be a magnificent creator without alignment to the energy of the power that creates worlds.” Abraham Hicks

Abraham – Source translated by Esther Hicks – explain their teachings regarding empowerment, which center on learning to follow Inner Guidance rather than any outside authority, and recognizing that this guidance comes to us in the form of our emotions.

Further, since the Universe is truly benevolent and unconditionally loving, Abraham teaches that if we seek joy and do our best to feel as good as we can in every moment, then we will align with Infinite Divine Intelligence.

In this workshop excerpt, Abraham elaborates on this concept by focusing on the misconception of many that in order to achieve gain we must suffer pain and that only through struggle can we be free.

In doing so Abraham helps us to remember that our enlightenment and success in life come not from ignoring our emotional guidance, but through the ease and allowing.

Getting Into The Vortex - Abraham HicksFor nearly 25 years Esther & Jerry Hicks have produced books, audio recordings, and videos based on the Teachings of Abraham, and their latest book, entitled “The Vortex”, is currently on the New York Times bestseller list.

Esther explains that when she speaks for Abraham, she is interpreting blocks of thought from Non-Physical Source Energy – which she also sometimes identifies as her “Soul”. Esther doesn’t use the word “channeling” to describe her process, since she is not in a trance and is not hearing a voice in her head. Rather, she has trained herself to verbally interpret the same unerring Inner Guidance that is available to all of us.
