In an earlier Squidoo lens, I asked the question: Does Jerry Hicks Death From Cancer Mean The End Of Abraham-Hicks? My opinion was that it should, but I didn't think it would. Reality has won out over the wish.
In fact, the transition from the old, much-loved Abraham took place once already: when money and fame from The Secret first came rolling in. In a scene from that transition, an associate recalls Esther telephoning late at night after a workshop. "They gave me a standing ovation," she cooed. Abraham, purportedly the real star of the show had already been shoved aside by 2005.
Esther and Jerry Hicks shared with the public the news of Jerry's serious illness in the spring of 2011. Given some of her earlier antics on stage and his confiding that he'd already lost fifteen pounds from a slight frame, it seems likely that he was ill longer than announced, partially explaining Esther's going native and abusing paid workshop attendees.
If Esther's going a little crazy with Abraham signaled the next big reinvention of Abraham-Hicks, Jerry's public expression of illness accelerated it.

With her husband sidelined and no longer providing intros and support for the Abraham-Hicks workshops, Esther Hicks began to take liberties Jerry Hicks had not allowed her, discarding her decades old barefoot country preacher garb for a flashy new set of clothes. The clothes aren't astonishing in a normal context but for the publicly dowdy Esther Hicks, they were.
