Preface

Abraham-Hicks (channelling) and The Law of Correspondences (astrology).

Astrology is the study of the Law of Correspondences – a sister perhaps to the Law of Attraction. It provides a snapshot of the sky at the time and place of birth and operates as a guidance system for the individual throughout life – it is a map like a road map but loaded with meaning offered in the archetypal references of the astrological symbols.

Also, I published a short text on channeling in 1996 and then 6 years later my partner became the channel for ‘Arthur’ to whom I put questions on a daily basis for the 5 or 6 years preceding my partner’s death. Some of this material is shown here.

The Abraham material is a wonderful body of work and I have no argument with any of it. Much of it repeats Arthur’s words. My interest is really in how Esther, that is the identity called, Esther fits in, for she is a whole and separate personality. Everything is channelled through Esther, using her amazing flexibility of mind, her excellent mental facility. Yet the messages are not delineated, they are not repeated verbatim. Esther is given an idea or a block of information which she personally must translate – using all her intelligence and experience to date.

All good so far. Also, Abraham stresses time and again the need for individuals to do this work for themselves because the best and most personal help will come from the individual’s own spiritual guidance system.

It is interesting that each channel, like each artist, can produce a unique and different representation of the exact same subject. They receive the same information but render it in a personal way. As an astrologer with experience in understanding individuals, I am especially interested in separating Esther from Abraham for they seem often to be an equal mix, although increasingly it is becoming less balanced, with Esther enjoying a more vivid role.

I aim to exonerate the process from any negative criticism by explaining a little more how it works. Abraham is delivering a cure-all to fit everyone, yet no two people are the same. Were Esther to learn the language of the Law of Correspondences the show would become more personalized.

I hope this will help clarify and not offend anyone – living or dead, in any way.
