Statements About The Secret
The Australian producer of "The Secret" has been inspired
teachings of Abraham as well as many other remarkable teachers.
What was aired in this special was as much a "secret"
to Jerry and Esther as it was to everyone else. Jerry and Esther
were merely invited to participate and accepted the invitation.
It was not produced by Abraham-Hicks Publications, and we are
not currently marketing the DVD.
Although Jerry & Esther appreciate many aspects of the finished
it ended up being quite different from what they had originally
contracted to participate in. So when the producer recently insisted
on further significant changes in their agreement regarding
marketing, distribution, and theatrical rights, Jerry & Esther

THE SECRET The Television Movie From Jerry & Esther
Nearly two years ago, while on-board our Mexican Riviera Cruise,
Prime Time Productions did an interview with Jerry and me, and
with Abraham, in response to an agreement that we had all carefully
crafted together for a television show that was to be aired in
Australia called "The Secret." We were told that "The
be based on our work and that they would seek out other teachers
were in alignment with our work. We reviewed, on DVD, two other
projects that had been created by this production company and
them to be beautifully done, and good-feeling pieces.
Since Jerry and I had never before stepped into the public forum
that way with our Abraham work, we followed the advice of our
publisher, who introduced us to an intellectual property rights
attorney who assisted us in drafting the agreement which would
guide our involvement with this project. He explained to us that
although he had included in the intellectual property rights license
agreement that we were to receive a small percentage of the net
profit from this project, and 10% of direct video sales, that
it was very unlikely that (from his experience) we would receive
any substantial compensation from our participation, and we were
not unhappy with that arrangement. Our decision to do it was not
motivated from the idea of making money from it, (unless there
was profit to share) but because we were stimulated by the excitement
of this beautiful producer, and when we met her and her beautiful
crew, we easily loved them all.
As time went by, it became apparent that the television network
that we had been told would air "The Secret" was not
going to do it, at least not right now, and so the production
company began seeking other ways of marketing their beautiful
project to recoup their very large investment. While Jerry and
I were uncomfortable with what felt to us like a rather aggressive
marketing campaign (just not our style, nothing wrong with it)
we stayed focused on our busy schedule and really had very little
to do with what was happening with "The Secret."
Eventually we received an email from the producer of "The
Secret" lovingly explaining (we never have received correspondence
from her that was anything other than extremely loving) that the
contract that we had all agreed upon and signed was no longer
sufficient for their further distribution of the project in the
areas they were now seeking to distribute the project, and that
it would be necessary for us (Jerry and Esther) to relinquish
our intellectual property rights in these areas forever and redo
our contract or they would have to reluctantly edit us out. It
was clear, from the lovingly written email that they did not want
to edit us out, but after conferring with our publisher, and then
our intellectual property rights attorney, and finally with Abraham,
allowing them to edit us out was the path of least resistance.
Abraham's words were very clear and easy to understand: "Whenever
you are given an ultimatum that says, 'if you don't do this, then
we will have to do such and such,' it is best that you just let
it go and move on. Otherwise there is always another, and this,
and this, and this…"
Now, it seems there is quite a firestorm surrounding our dis-
involvement with "The Secret". We are receiving so many
letters and face-to-face questions from disappointed people regarding
this, so we want you to understand how we feel about it.
We think that "The Secret" clearly and beautifully
Law of Attraction in a way that is easy to understand. It is filled
with stunning beauty and beautiful people, many of whom are our
personal friends. We love the way "The Secret" moves
us, and we feel
joy rise within our hearts every time we watch it. We feel the
of it, and the clarity of it, and we love "The Secret".
It is our desire that, rather than being upset that our part

enjoy the original Abraham version, as it is, at this time, and
you look forward to what other incredible things these talented
people may bring to you. These are people who clearly care about

Financially speaking, we have been very well paid for our
participation with this project… which has amounted to a
staggering amount of money. And if money were the most important
factor, we assure you, we would have found some way of staying
So, we're out here doing our thing, enjoying the incredible expansion
of the message of Abraham, and are so looking forward to the wonderful
things that are in our future. Abraham says to us and to you:It
is our desire that you be easy about all of this. There is nothing
that has gone wrong here. Everything is in alignment. The Universe
will offer a steady stream of uplifting avenues to all of you.
There is great love here for you, Abraham.
