If you're interested in the law of attraction you're bound to come across Abraham Hicks at some point-if you haven't already.
Arguably the most important "people" in the manifesting community, allow me to explain to you exactly who, or maybe I should say what, they are.
Channeled by Esther Hicks, a woman who once upon a time wanted nothing to do with "weird spiritual stuff," Abraham is a group of non-physical entities that describes themselves as teachers, or, infinite intelligence.
They gave Esther all the information on the law of attraction that she's written in books, and she continues to channel them at law of attraction seminars where people can ask them any questions they have-through her.
They came to Esther after she had been practicing meditation for a while, and had no deliberate intention of becoming a channeler.
If you don't know what channeling is, it's when someone translates the non-physical to the physical. Put more simply, when people translate what certain entities, such as ghosts are saying, that is channeling. It can be done through speech or automatic writing, and anyone can get to the place where they can channel anyone or anything.
Anyways, let's get back to Abraham.
Abraham is not focused in a time-space reality the way we are. They are focused in a timelessness reality.
On the 2007 Mexican Wellbeing Cruise, they described themselves as "the vibrational essence that equals the culmination of all that has been lived both physically and non physically."
They also explained that they are an energy that is expanding consciously and constantly because of the willingness of physical experience and its contribution to the never ending want or desire. They are the expanded version of who each of us is. And they are the pure essence of that expanded essence. This is what many refer to as God, or Source (Energy), and can be found in each and every one of us, because we are all aspects of the universe enjoying this temporary life experience.
Abraham doesn't have any of the concerns we do, but they have benefitted from the concerns we have lived because it has contributed their expansion.
They also said, "We are as broad or as deep as the question that you ask because law of attraction does not match you up with the part of us that it different than the part of you. We can only be as wise as your wisdom, as loving as your love, and as smart as your brilliance. We cannot be more than you allow us to be. So when you find something in us that you deem worthy, or wonderful, or beneficial, you must understand that it is a pure reflection of who you are, because you could not get it from us if you were not it also."
So why do they matter?
They're important because they are the go-to law of attraction teachers since they are the direct source of law of attraction information.
They have the answer to any question anyone may have, personal or existential, and can explain the law of attraction as it pertains to anything.
There are plenty of law of attraction gurus who possess tons of wisdom and experience with the law of attraction, but they don't have the answers to every question the way Abraham does, and they are not the direct source of LOA info the way Abraham is.
I hope this article has cleared up any questions or confusion you had about the subject, and I hope you have a wonderful week!
