“Jerry and Esther Hicks are two psychics who claim to channel a cluster of spirits called Abraham. They are authors of the Law of Attraction, which influenced Rhonda Byrne author of ‘The Secret’, which teaches that a person can create their own reality just by thinking it into existence. ‘What the mind can perceive, the body can achieve’, they like to say. In the law of attraction, God, if He even exists, is nothing more than a universal energy force that we manipulate by our thoughts and feelings. The law of attraction/ ‘The Secret’ assumes a pantheistic (God is everything) view of God. The law of attraction denies the ideas of a personal God of the Bible (with thoughts, feelings, and emotions). To the proponents of the law of attraction, we are all ‘incarnations of God’ – we all are our own gods which is reminiscent of the lie the crafty serpent told Eve in the Garden. Jerry Hicks learned to channel spirits using the ouija board, a divination tool sure to conjure demonic spirits. Jerry (who recently died) was influenced by Napoleon Hill, who himself was influenced by demonic spirits. His wife, Esther visited a psychic who encouraged them to meditate that is when she felt something ‘breathing’ or forcing air in and out of her lungs. After the session, her teeth buzzed which led to her experience with Abraham. After 9 months of meditating, her head moved around and her nose wrote in the air ‘I am Abraham. I am your spiritual guide. I love you. I am here to work with you.’ These spirit guides are demonic spirits masquerading as they teach doctrine of devils whose teaching doesn’t line up with the word of God found in the Bible. These demonic spirits will never direct a person to the Jesus of the Bible who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and the only way to the Father (John 14:6). Test everything by the word of God.”
The Secret supposedly also fosters material wealth: From The Secret– “The law [of “attraction”] responds to your thoughts, no matter what they may be….People who have drawn wealth into their lives…think thoughts of abundance and wealth…nothing else exists in their minds.” “You’ve got to feel good about money to attract more to you….Start to say and feel…I am a money magnet. I love money.”
This is unbiblical and not a good thing to be taught. The Bible says “the love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Tim. 6:10).

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
