About the Author

Excited about the clarity and practicality of the translated word from abraham, Jerry and Esther Hicks began, in 1986, disclosing their Abraham experience to a handful of close business associates. Then, recognizing the practical results being received by those persons who began plying Abraham with meaningful personal questions regarding their finances, bodily conditions, and relationships...the Hickses made a conscious decision to allow Abrahams teachings to become available to an ever widening circle of seekers. And that circle continues to expand even as you read this page.

Jerry and Esther have now published more than 380 Abraham-Hicks books, cassettes and videos, and have been presenting open group interactive workshops in as many as 59 cities a year to those who gather to participate in this progressive stream of thought.

Although worldwide attention has been given by leading edge thinkers to this "Science of Deliberate Creation" who, in turn, incorporate many of Abrahams concepts into their books, lectures, sermons, screenplays and scripts, the primary spread of this material has been from person to person as individuals begin to discover the value of these materials in their practical, personal experience.

Abraham, a group of obviously evolved teachers, speak their broader Nonphysical perspective through the physical apparatus of Esther. Speaking to our level of comprehension, from their present moment to our now, through a series of loving, allowing, brilliant yet comprehensively simple, recordings in print and in sound they guide us to a clear connection with our Inner Being they guide us to self-upliftment from our Total Self.

After scouring new age book stores for years, and reading literally hundreds of books, I happened on this book (and Vol. 2) and I honestly say my life has changed for the better in so many ways. This is absolutely the most workable, practical sky-is-the-limit philosophy I've ever encountered. And thankfully every word of it has translated into whole new vistas of joy in my life (and about 20 other friends who I have turned on to it). I have watched it change lives when applied even to a small degree. If you want new age dogma, or complicated ritual and significance, go elsewhere. If you want something that works (and it's easy and fun!) THIS IS IT.

"There is nothing you cannot be, do or have" pretty much sums up the Abraham teachings perfectly.
For years, I thought life had to be a struggle, the world was full of wrongs to be righted and that we had to prove ourselves worthy in some way in our lives to something or someone - whether physical or non-physical. The non-dogmatic, non-preachy Abraham teachings changed my view of the world completely.
Now I sit back and relax, let my thoughts and desires flow and life just gets better and better. I pretty much get everything I want these days and things I don't quite have in the bag yet are well on the way. Even after just a year of playing with the Abraham ideas, I find myself looking at other people in the world and wondering why they make things so hard on themselves.
You see, life is a choice - and it is much more of a choice than many of us dare believe. And we can choose to live life the "hard" way with lots of suffering or we can live it the "easy" way with ever-increasing freedom, growth and joy.
I now know that every single little thing that every occurs in my day-to-day existence is something that I have deliberately created and I now know exactly how to control all those things.
Do yourself a favour - forget all the emotional/religious/psychological baggage you've been carrying all your life and just learn how the natural laws of the Universe really work. One thing is for'll never look at life the same way again.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the many books that speak of the Universal laws and Truths of manifesting. I was quite disappointed by one of the readers who reviewed this book and implied at the end of the review that this material could have possibly been plagerzied by a well known spiritual and motivational teacher. Universal laws and truths have existed throughout the ages and the truths are uncovered on a soul level when the spirit is ready to receive them. They are not the discovery or copyright of solely one individual. Source has many methods and many mouthpieces, each bringing and teaching Truth in their own way.

As with many other books on the laws of manifesting, this book adequately outlines the universal laws and gives some great insights. What sets it above most of the others is that it provides non-abstract methods to actually apply these laws without alot of the new age lingo. I also really enjoyed its reading format - sometimes the smaller print books can bother the eyes!

Enjoy this fabulous book. I would also definitley recommend A New Beginning II.

Format: Paperback
A New Beginning I : Handbook for Joyous Survival is the best of the Abrahm-Hicks series and can be considered to contain the main messages of Abraham. The other books by Jerry and Esther Hicks are sequels to this edition and contain elaborative information on the teachings in this book. This book easily presents to the reader a philosophy of the creation of personal experience. Like in the Seth books by Jane Roberts, the non-physical entities repeat to us the message that we are the creators of our own life-experiences, through the constant application of the laws of the universe consciously or by default. A new beginning presents us with a practical guide on the way of creating our life-experiences consciously and deliberately the way we want. I recommend this book highly and as supplements, all the Abraham-Hicks books. I also recommend all the Seth books. As they fit together beautifully. A must to every seeker's library.

This book gives the nuts and bolts of "Conscious Creation" as introduced by Seth. But this book picks up the story where Seth left off and gives you exercises and detail on how we create what we concentrate on. This book kind of gives the "missing piece" and shows you both sides the positive and countering negative creation. This book, for me, will always be part of my "Seth" library. Strange to find in such a book is a chapter on "Earth Changes". Apparently Abraham gives us this information so we can AVOID problems with the upcoming changes that I'm guessing might happen sometime before or near the 2012 deadline given by the Mayans.

Format: Paperback
This is one of those books that can truly change your life - if approached with an open mind...

Within "A New Beginning", the author discusses the laws of the universe, and how by following these laws, one can achieve the life they want. This book is about how important our thoughts are in creating our experiences, including how they attract certain "types" of people into our lives. Exercises are also included to help you utilize these universal laws to attract those experiences/people that you DO WANT, instead of those you'd like to avoid.

It's shown that we are responsible for EVERYTHING we experience, as we are the creators of our current life experiences - therefore, it no longer makes sense to spend time blaming others for our plight. Instead, we need to figure out where we miscreated, and fix it by creating what we do want instead.

Although everything makes a lot of sense, and I can see how my thoughts have impacted my life, I still have 1 question... and that is re: the horrible experiences that some children go through - I'm uncertain as to how they brought those experiences into their lives. But I feel certain that I'll gain a greater understanding of this as I research the other works by this author further.

As a side note, the information included in this book was obtained through the channeling of ABRAHAM - a group of entities in the non-physical universe - through Esther Hicks.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in changing some aspect of their life; those interested in universal laws; and those interested in communications from the other side.

I would also recommend that you read "The Power of Intention" by Wayne Dyer, as this is another excellent book on the power of our thoughts, and how we can literally change our life by changing our thoughts.
