Cancer Finally Took Jerry Hicks' Life
Jerry Hicks' Struggle with Leukemia
You can't be blamed if you think Jerry Hicks, the wildly successful marketer of New Age products and promotions, is still alive, can you?
Abraham-Hicks wouldn't promote a lie on their website, would they?
The dust settled after their disastrous handing of Jerry Hicks losing battle with leukemia, but the folks at Abraham-Hicks still promote the myth marketed during his lifetime.
Jerry, according to their website, continues to dance across the country with Esther in their "monster bus," more than three years after he died.
If you're confused, join the club. I am too.
Jerry Hicks died in November 2011, according to Esther Hicks.
Leukemia That Was Hard To Explain
Esther Hicks confirmed that the cause was cancer of the blood, leukemia, an illness Jerry and Esther never admitted before he died, but later claimed they didn't try to hide it either.
Esther acknowledged on their website what many of us saw coming. Jerry Hicks died, she said in a blog post and email blast, on November 18th, 2011. Her credibility, of course, isn't high, but it seemed unlikely she'd be running a con on that one.
No location for his place of death was given. No obituary or other official recognition has been found.
The best evidence suggests that his fight finally ended while seeking alternative treatments in South Korea. The cover story was going to be about how he always felt a kinship with the South Korean people, but that balloon never got off the ground.
Six months passed after Jerry Hicks admitted being hospitalized to undergo what he called "heavy chemotherapy."
He gave only enough details to help gullible followers believe a fiction about a fire ant bite as the cause. I'm not kidding.
One optimistic follower on the Abe Forum passed along her insight that taking an aspirin was, in fact, chemotherapy, and so, there was no reason to believe Jerry Hicks had cancer.
If he did, why wouldn't he say so?
Take an Objective Look at Abraham-Hicks
Is the story of Abraham's birth one that, if you actually read it, you'd feel comfortable with, or does it read more like something patched together that never really makes any sense?
Why is Jerry Hicks illness and death still being covered up with misinformation directly from Abraham-Hicks?
And what about the Abraham-Hicks Teachings? Do followers ever actually read them and think about what they say?
The Law of Attraction Philosophy
"Good to see the old ones go." Esther Hicks
Over too was the game of wondering when Esther Hicks would stop obscuring the facts and tell the truth to followers.
The answer: Never.
In fact, rather than rejoice in Jerry's "croaking," as she did when death took away someone else's loved one, or repeating her refrain about how it's "good to see the old ones go," Esther has personally granted Jerry eternal life, resurrecting her dead husband as an additional channeled resource in her so-called workshops.
Finally, and maybe in anticipation of a more remote form of contact with followers, Esther Hicks is reinventing herself.
The frumpy black and white country preacher outfits have been discarded and replaced with the brighter, splashy colors Esther enjoys in real life.
When Esther Hicks broke her silence about Jerry Hicks' cancer, although ultimately a front for a marketing pitch and fairly misleading, it was news.
Jerry Hicks' Cancer: Basic Questions
One of Esther Hicks' (posing as Abraham) most memorable quotes:
"Think about that little smear that starts out as the human body, and then there's a nose and a liver and a gizzard, oh, not a gizzard... All that stuff that is present and knows how to become this. There's so much knowledge within the human body. You're wanting to free the human body's knowledge to be well from the resistance that has been picked up along this physical trail. The very best approach to medicine is,"Well, I see your physical body is sick, what's been bothering you? What are you worried about? What are you angry about? What are you frustrated about?" Because that is what is at the root of all of this. And then say, "Let it go, let it go, let it go." That's the message, and if they could hear you and do that, then they would all be well right away.

But When It Mattered for Jerry Hicks
It appears that Jerry Hicks cancer shows he was immune, not to cancer, but to the wisdom preached by his wife and marketed by him to millions of believers.
Jerry Hicks death was an occasion for sadness. Even though the marketing machine has made a mess of this tragic situation, a disservice to their trusting followers, other cancer victims and Jerry Hicks himself, there is no joy in discovering the deceits parlayed by Esther Hicks one more time.
A trusted friend with a medical background and many contacts in the Abraham Hicks world guessed that Jerry had been suffering from leukemia for many months, certainly long before the ridiculous spider bite story was cooked up. She believed the signs of low dose chemotherapy were already evident in his appearance.
She speculated that an escalation of the disease led to the phony cover story. Jerry's own admission that he'd already lost fifteen pounds from his slight frame before beginning chemotherapy tends to confirm her suspicions.
Since Esther has long claimed that, not only do we give ourselves cancer, we also chose our time of death voluntarily, their money-skewed position in marketing to their cult-like following could not withstand the exposure.
Others may tell us what really happened during the meltdown of Abraham Hicks, but if my friend's educated guesses are right, they help explain the pathetic scramble to scare up money from pushing guided meditation CD's rabidly during Christmas and the sudden invention of the "Abraham LIVE" scheme to gather followers over the internet, getting beyond the limited benefits of onsite attendance, regardless of how overpriced.
Now that the facts are better known, the question is whether or not Esther Hicks will do the right thing and come clean.
Even if it would be of great help to their followers in aiding them with insights or for leukemia victims everywhere by no longer suggesting guilt, I don't see anything in their background that suggests she will.
Abraham Hicks on Medicine, Aging and Sickness
And the "heavy chemotherapy" was necessary because...?
The very best approach to medicine is,"Well, I see your physical body is sick, what's been bothering you? What are you worried about? What are you angry about? What are you frustrated about?" Because that is what is at the root of all of this. And then say, "Let it go, let it go, let it go." That's the message, and if they could hear you and do that, then they would all be well right away.
Excerpted from the workshop in Ashland, OR on Tuesday, May 16th, 2000 # 106
"Death is an inevitable cycle. But sickness before death is a symptom of resistance. Most people think they've got to get sick to die. But, you could be like the cat who chooses to get run over. Or, you could just lie down in your bed happily one night, so content and thoughtless, wanting nothing in this physical world; and just reemerge into Pure Positive Energy... You can play it out any way you choose."
Excerpted from the workshop in Sedona, AZ on Saturday, August 27th, 2005
I suppose you'd have to wonder why Jerry Hicks decided to "play it out" with leukemia, then ran to "heavy chemotherapy" to get rid of it.
And death itself:
"...death' is a matter of closing one's eyes in this dimension and literally opening one's eyes in the other dimension. And that, truly, is how all death is, no matter how it looks, up to that point.. The re-emergence into Source Energy is always a delightful thing."
Excerpted from the workshop in Buffalo, NY on Tuesday, September 25th, 2001
Note: This claim, that death is always "delightful" was dished out two weeks after the World Trade Center Disaster. For pregnant women jumping to their deaths from eighty floors in the sky, for professionals supporting families, for the captured passengers on commercial flights, a few with infants in their laps, death had a "delightful" experience
And the latest: Abraham Hicks Is Dead
Comment But Stay on Topic
Since so many angry Abraham-Hick's supporters feel that this is an invitation to rant, express their anger, tell me I'm a jerk, point out that I don't get it, praise Esther and Jerry, and otherwise misuse the space, I have to make a rule that any comments that do not respond to the question asked will be deleted.
Don't worry, fans.
You will have opportunities later to condemn the author at will.
But you will be expected to make a point, not just angry remarks. So, as you go along, think about what you might write that actually adds to the conversation.
You'll stand a much better chance of having your remarks approved and added to the lens.
A Cover Up More Than Jerry Hicks Cancer
What about the facilitators?
Most followers of the Abraham Hicks story recognize the roles played in facilitating their deceptions, whether knowingly or unknowingly, by high profile endorsers like Oprah Winfrey and Rhonda Byrne, creator of "" book and movie. The Secret
Now that the truth is undeniable and an unravelling of the longstanding scam is exposed, will the enablers who helped draw followers now step forward and admit their mistake?
Will Oprah Winfrey haul Esther Hicks onto her stage and confront her as she has with others who threatened her credibility?
I believe Ms. Winfrey was scammed just as I and others were, but now that things have changed, will her endorsement?
And what about the otherwise much-admired Wayne Dyer, suffering from leukemia himself? Dyer once said that Abraham was the best group of teachers around?
If so, what are they teaching us now?
Louise Hay, a pioneer in self-help. Summer McStravick, the mainstream media generally...
You can spend a lot of time wondering what all the people who gave this operation a free pass are thinking about doing now.
Even if Esther Hicks won't tell the humbling truth, maybe a few of the people they've duped will.
