Abraham: Satan and Santa – Esther & Jerry Hicks

Abraham on Satan and Santa. During a Law of Attraction workshop, Abraham – translated by Esther Hicks – responded to a father who was uncertain about how he should answer his daughter’s question – “Daddy, is there a Devil?”. In doing so, Abraham draws a surprising parallel between Satan and another bigger-than-life childhood figure, Santa Claus.

Recorded on April 18, 2009 in San Antonio, Texas.

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.

  1. So good!!
    with much love and appreciation
    Abraham Esther & Jerry for all that you are and the remembering of who I am, and allowing of who I have become
    blessings always and in all ways robyn

  2. outside the vortex you need plenty of threats to control people and the devil is a good one” but i think that source is so much more powerful even outside the vortex…but I am wanting santa to exist even though he has been made up…i am wanting to meet his reindeer! I love reindeer and i love abraham…oh its so lovely here in the vortex!

  3. I’ts amazing when you realize we were taught about the bad things in life to scare us into doing what made others feel good.

  4. I wish I had been able to put it this clearly when my daughter asked me these questions. Thanks Abraham. I am prepared if my grand daughter asks.

  5. i love the way you put the ”source” into perspective. its so obvious and yet oh so awesome. man made him up ”santa” to give you good!! and ”satan” to give you bad!! they have the exact same letters.. thank you!!

  6. Wonderful addressing of the question. I was taught to fear phantoms growing up, so it is great to hear this clarified.

  7. it seems scary to most to teach their children things like this only because of society of course. But to begin children at a young age to understand their roll as creators would ultimately change this world for the better, through practicing happiness nonetheless

  8. Great explanation.. it would be great if all of us could be free of the guilt and ‘stories’ that we were told as children. The stories that caused fear.. fear in order to learn love. Thank you for sharing.

  9. LOVE IT! Thanks Esther, Abraham and Jerry! Funny that Santa and Satan both have the same letters but inverted…
