The first time I listened to these processes I was disappointed. There was the constant repetition about the emotional scale and the first section of the audio book was an exact replication of the end of 'The law of attraction' audiobook.
Then I listened to it a few months later and WOW - these people know their stuff. They have 22 processes in which to lift your emotions from being neutral or miserable to being positively joyful,creative and giving you the ability to attract abundance into your life. Of course, like all self help - you have to try it out to see if it really works and many people (I am guilty of this often myself) listen without the action bit and then moan that nothing has shifted in their lives or that the content is useless. I am quite confident that practising just one of these processes would benefit your life for the better.
"You gotta try this!"
A friend referred me to Abraham-Hicks a couple of months ago, and sent me to the website. I watched, but wasn't sold. I decided to give it another try and listened to "Ask and It Is Given" which is part I to this part II (see my review of the first part).
After that, I couldn't WAIT to get "The Processes", and this does not disappoint. What you are asked to do to integrate the teachings into your life isn't difficult nor does it demand too much, and it DOES help you find a way back to your happy place. Give it a try and see if it doesn't help.
Jerry Hicks does an monotone, lifeless reading of their book, which is the opposite of the energetic recordings where Esther/Abraham are talking. Like other reviewers mentioned, there is no insert/handout attached - he refers to this with each process and I would suggest that Audible makes this available as a text download. I have the book and other than a reinforcement of the book material, I am disappointed in this audio version. I am also disappointed that the Hicks chose to break this into two separate recordings; I purchased other audiobooks from Hay House from Audible, no other authors make you pay twice for one book.
"My Favorite So Far"
I've listened to many of the Hicks audio books, and this one is my favorite so far. Jerry offers some real techniques that can be used to incorporate Abraham's teachings.
"I really enjoy these books"
These are great books to keep and listen to every so often to remind you. I think Jerry does a fantastic job as the narrator. I guess everyone has their own tastes but I think his speaking cadence really seems to fit with this material.
I can honestly say this has changed my entire way of thinking! I am so excited about reading / hearing the next few books in the series. I found it to be life changing and uplifting. You truly can solve any problem in your life, and turn it all around! This book is about hope and guidance. Bravo!
"Avoid this One"
I have had to really center myself to be able to listen to Jerry's monotonous hyper-chat. He assumes both roles; his, and that of Abraham which was so sweet and meaningful when spoken through Esther's voice. A wonderful formula that was not broken was "fixed" and now it does not work.
"Practical Application: Self Diagnosis and Cure"
As a big fan of this whole series by Esther and Jerry Hicks I felt (very briefly and possibly oversimplified) that the whole 2 Part series covered all the bases, with reinforcement on key areas, but that Part 2 especially offered a whole lot in the way of self-diagnosis (Emotional Guidance Scale) and finding the cure (22 Proven Processes). It tied a lot of things together and if you're a fan of the workshop it gives you all kinds of fun things to try out... thus breathing fresh air into that process alone.
I'll admit that Esther is the better speaker, but I found Jerry (may he rest in peace) very soothing.
However you should NOTE that I found it more effective to have the book version as well because I felt I needed the Emotional Guidance Scale (that they refer to constantly) in writing and I also appreicated having the written version of the 22 processes. I wrote to Audible and these sections they refer to as inserts were not provided in pdf format. That could have been extremely helpful, but the online version of the book is very reasonably priced.
This title repeats that last 30 minutes, or so of the first recording.
Also, there is a handout provided with the recording, at least according to the recording. But I cannot find the handout on audible.com
"Inspiring and educational, as usual"
To make practical use of Abraham-Hicks or any life-changing work, it is useful to listen to it over and over again.
Some people say that Jerry talks too fast (did you know if you have an Ipod touch that you can slow down the rate of speech?) but I don't think he talks faster than Ester/Abraham, nor do I find his fast reading to be a bother. What I do like about Jerry is his sincere appreciation for the work of Ester and Abraham, and the sound of his voice.
"Excellent and Practical"
Some of the things that they suggest in this book are actually very simple, like keeping a journal of positive aspects of anything that you feel like writing about. I have noticed that my overall mood has lifted, even with this simple game. I enjoy playing some of the other games suggested in this book, and for the most part, it has helped me look at life through different eyes.
