Jerry’s Passion for a Feel Good Life
“Every person with whom we seemingly have a chance encounter while here upon this planet has the potential of exerting a purely angelic influence upon us if we will but allow it.”
— Jerry Hicks
At press time, we just learned of the passing of one of our sweetest and most beloved Hay House authors—Jerry Hicks.
This year started off as every other one for the past 25 years at the Hicks household. They packed, gassed up their enormous tour bus and headed out on the road. And in their signature monster bus—often driven by Esther herself while Jerry would sit in the back catching up with e-mail or sorting the latest workshop recordings—they travelled from city to city and state to state to meet their expanding audience. Their mission: To share the teaching of Abraham®—the wise and visionary group of nonphysical teachers—with the rest of the world.
But after a few short months on the road, something unusual happened. What started out as a spider bite that Jerry didn’t think much about led to the discovery of a more serious medical problem.
When Jerry was conspicuously absent from several Abraham-Hicks events, the letters and emails started pouring in. Jerry was so moved by the abundance of love and concern he received from so many people, he wrote a personal message in their monthly eletter. In his usually good humor, he added the subject line: “What’s Up with Jerry?”
Jerry explained that the unusual bug bite had led to a biopsy and then him checking into the hospital. He was now in the middle of a 28-day regimen to get his white blood cells back into balance. And in this note, Jerry promised that when he gained “15 pounds of energetic flesh” and returned to his “normal zippidy doo dah self,” he’d be back on the road.
But sadly for us, his journey on the physical plane ended on Friday, Nov. 18, when Jerry made his transition into Nonphysical.
As Esther explained in a beautiful note she wrote when her beloved husband passed, “Abraham has consistently insisted that there is no death. Again and again they have reminded us that there is only life and more life and more life. I do believe that in what we are calling Jerry’s death, he is discovering the next logical step of life that Abraham has always been talking about.
“Since 1985 it has been Jerry and Esther and Abraham and I believe with everything that I am that that has not changed. I know that Jerry will continue to be the third powerful point in the triad of Energy that makes up the Abraham experience,” Esther affirms. “And I am certain that his new vantage point will be, as it has always been, of advantage to us all.”
The news of Jerry’s passing has come as quite a shock for many of us who have worked with Jerry or met him at one of the Abraham-Hicks workshops. For me, I remember how Jerry always wore a smile that beamed his abundant love of life. And when you were around him, you couldn’t help but feel the passion and joy with which he lived his life.
Although he was quite sick as a child and lived in poverty, Jerry forever followed his heart and his passion. His résumé validates his love of life and joy: He was a circus performer, juggler, boxer, singer, gymnast, radio show host, and comedian. And after a chance reading of Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, Jerry built a multi-million-dollar business and became a millionaire entrepreneur. “Every dream I’ve had—every dream since I was a little boy—they’ve all come true,” Jerry once declared.
It was during this time that he met his soulful partner, the girl from a small Rocky Mountain town. After more than 30 years of marriage, Jerry still called his wife Esther spectacular! “She is the most allowing person I’ve ever met.”
While Esther is still coming to terms with Jerry’s transition, she says, “I am such a fortunate girl, to have been able to play with Jerry and Abraham and all of you for so many wonderful years and I am so eager to continue doing more of the same for many more years to come. I know Jerry is out there leading the way for me.”
Jerry’s passion for joy and zest for life have enriched all of us at Hay House and all who knew him. We will miss him dearly.
And if you happen to see the Hicks’ monster bus moving along your neighborhood in the days to come, take a closer look. I truly believe that we’ll still see Jerry peeking out of one of the windows wearing his red clown nose!
Thank you, Jerry, for enriching our lives with your joyful passion and your zest for living and allowing. We will see you in The Vortex, but we will still miss you.
Here is one of my favorite clips of Jerry (along with Esther and Abraham) from our Ask and It Is Given DVD.
