What is Abraham-Hicks’s take on Jesus? Was Jesus a historical person? Was he the Son of God, or even God Himself?

How can we master the Law of Attraction? Well, one way to do it is to look at some of our most foundational beliefs and see if they really are serving us well.
And one of these beliefs, if one is a Christian, is the belief about Jesus: Who was he? Was he a real historical person? Was he the Son of God, or perhaps even God himself?
In this article I will take a look at some of the statements that Abraham-Hicks have made about Jesus, in order to build a more accurate picture of him than that which is commonly presented in Christian circles.
PART 1: ABRAHAM-HICKS ON JESUS
Was Jesus a Historical Person?
According to many sources, also academic ones, Jesus was, indeed, a historical person (Ehrman 2012).
The basic idea is that Jesus was born around 7 or 6 BC and died around 30 AD. But most of Jesus’s life is unknown. Only about one year of public ministry is attributed by the three synoptic Gospels [i.e., Matthew, Mark, and Luke], while two or three years is attributed by the Gospel of John (O’Collins 1986, p. 15).
Abraham-Hicks confirms that Jesus was a historical person (2021, “The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ Doesn’t Make Sense”):
Woman: “My question is about, was there actually an historical person called Jesus?”
This is also confirmed in another place, when the idea that “an intervention” was done by Jesus was introduced by a person in the audience (2010, “Why Did Jesus Come?”):
“Well, first of all, there never is an intervention. Sounds like assertion and there is no assertion. There’s only attraction. So what happens is you’re taking a historical figure who has rightly earned the place of a religious figure.”
Was Jesus the Son of God?
According to Abraham-Hicks, there was nothing special with Jesus, other than his practiced vibration. He was not God, or the only son of God. Rather, he was a son of God, as everyone else (2010, “Why Did Jesus Come?”):
“There are many who feel that it’s blasphemy to call him anything other than the Son of God. And so we will, but we will not call Jesus the Son of God in any other context than that we put you in the same category. In other words, everyone who comes forth is an extension of source energy.”
And they continue (2010, “Why Did Jesus Come?”; my square brackets):
“He [Jesus] was just a regular guy tuning into who he was, and teaching through the clarity of his example.”
So the idea here then is that we all have the same power as Jesus in principle, but not in practice. We must develop our abilities in terms of the Law of Attraction in order to become as powerful as, or perhaps even more powerful, than Jesus.
Naturally, in the Abraham-Hicks style, we shouldn’t do it because we are trying to achieve “power” (in the sense of controlling other people), but instead because we want to always be aligned with Source, and having a wonderful time in harmony with the world.
Turn the Other Cheek
According to Abraham-Hicks, in his adult life (after he had learned the art of meditation) Jesus was teaching some of the principles of Law of Attraction (2007, “When bothered by ‘upstreamers’ is he ‘upstreaming’?”):
“And so you decide that you can’t be a value to them while you’re feeling that way. So you sort of withdraw your attention. Jesus said, ‘turn the other cheek’. And that’s exactly what he was talking about. You take your attention from whatever it is that’s making you feel that way, and you find a better feeling way of looking at it.”
So the quote above demonstrates that Jesus’s principle of “turn the other cheek” was simply the idea that “one cannot focus on negative things and expect to feel better”. Therefore, the only way to feel better, as Abraham-Hicks presents it, is to stop looking at negative things; so we must turn our attention in another direction. And Jesus was well aware of this idea.
Why Was Jesus Crucified?
If Jesus was so powerful and so positive and so energetic, why in the whole world would he be crucified? (2021, “The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ Doesn’t Make Sense”; my square brackets):
“Well, it makes sense if you understand that he was like any other who sometimes was tuned in, tapped in, turned on and sometimes was not. In other words, he was born believing that that [becoming a martyr; ending his life on the cross; etc.] was to be his destiny. Talk about expectation.”
There is no scope for any “savior” in the authentic accounts of the Law of Attraction. All human beings, regardless of which religious or philosophical school they belong to, will return to heaven (i.e., Source) and leave all troubles and all negativity behind. No-one will go to any “eternal hell”, because there is no such place.
Thus, according to Abraham-Hicks, Jesus was no savior, and did not save anyone. He was a historical person, who had learned meditation and the art of allowing, and thus emitted a strong vibe of well-being and positivity. And he did heal some people (but not all), because of his strong well-being.
Ultimately, however, he was not God, nor any Son of God (in any special sense). He was just a regular person who learned the art of meditation and the Law of Attraction, and thereby (at the end of his life) became thousands of times more powerful than ordinary people.
This power can be had by anyone who really learns and consistently practices the art of mastering the Law of Attraction. For we are all sons and daughters of Source (God).
