From Publishers Weekly
Choose to live "in Easy World, where everything is easy," cede controlling tendencies, and trust in a higher power and, Hamrick assures, the universe will do the rest. First, the author distinguishes between want and need; the universe will not provide you (to whom her book is dedicated) with a Porsche, for instance. While the roots of her advice are obvious, as is the metaphor behind her terminology (Eden), much of the author's analysis is wrapped up in pseudo-science, brand strategy, or creative interpretations of psychological principles. Nutritional advice is sound but uninspired (eat whole grains, lots of fruit and vegetables, avoid processed foods) and seems included only to help turn a one-sentence self-help aphorism into a book. While Hamrick's essential idea may prove of use to some, her attempts to dress it up with justifications are at best sloppy and at worst irresponsible. Readers may find her techniques useful, but most likely they'll choose another book down the shelf that promises a more realistic and applicable approach to our uneasy world.

One amazing thing I learned from this book was how when we wait to be inspired and energized before doing something, we will get the most benefit. I loved all the stories and learning about the Design for Harmony, how living in easy world positively and effortlessly help others. I had my own little EW experience just as I was finishing the book: I had made a cup of coffee & spilled a large cup of sugar all over the stove. I had to remove all the burners, open the lid and clean underneath. Little did I know that I was actually in easy world because I was oddly calm (or more calm than usual) while cleaning up my mess, but then once I put all the burners back, the front burner was level for the first time and it worked properly again! Before that I had to jiggle the burner every time I turned it on. I've also noticed more good parking spaces and much shorter lines at the store. It's been less than a week since I got this book, and I'm so excited for the future.
I really think the author of the book has given us a gift from God, and God being Love, is showing us what Anita Moorjani says in her book, Dying To Be Me, "Heaven is not a place but a state of mind."
Thank you, Julia, for writing this amazing book.
I read about this book in an interview with Gretchen Rubin, author of "The Happiness Project." Immediately I felt compelled to buy it. We were in the process of moving and I felt frustrated because I didn't yet have a mailing address to send the book, but it was too late to have it sent to the "old" house. Then it occurred to me to see if it was available electronically. I was reading it 60 seconds later!
We left for a house hunting expedition in our new city, and I read bits of the book on the drive down. The first day, we found only two listings that met our criteria, but didn't get a call back for one, and the other was all wrong. The next day, I felt terribly discouraged as we filled out piles of paperwork for a real estate agent. I didn't have all the information I needed with me, and suddenly couldn't log in to the cloud media account where I had a copy of the data. A friend who lives in our new city sent me a note saying how hard it was to find rentals there and asking if it was too late to change our minds. We were getting depressed. My husband suggested we take a lunch break. While we had lunch, I reminded myself that we now live in Easy World.
When we got back, we were going to get ready to go to the beach. I felt annoyed as my husband got online again. I was waiting for him to put sunblock on my back. Meanwhile, he found three more house listings, the last one less than an hour old. We were able to get two of them to meet with us that day, and the third said we could drive by and look in the windows, but he couldn't meet until we already needed to be halfway home the next day.
The first house had a very nice landlord, but it was too far and needed a remodel. The second house just wasn't very impressive. We knew we wanted the third house as soon as we saw it. Then the agent called to say his schedule had freed up and he could meet us on our way home the next morning.
There was another prospective tenant there when we went to see the house. She left after only a couple minutes and didn't seem interested. We filled out the application online on my phone during the drive home, and found out we were approved just a few hours later.
So, to sum up: I found out about Easy World the day before a stressful trip; felt more caught up in Difficult World than I had in months; and invoked Easy World. At approximately that instant, a listing was posted for a house that we would apply to rent 4 hours later, and get approval in 24 hours. If we hadn't looked at the other, unsuitable places, we might not have realized what a great choice it was. To top it off, we finally heard back from the place we really wanted from the first day; it turned out to be the least suitable of all! AND we didn't have to finish the paperwork that had been causing me so much dread.
We never did go to the beach that day. But we did get a house and now we'll be able to go any time. I like it here in Easy World!
However if we breath--relax--allow our right brain and heart brain comes online. We have access to more possibilities that our rational logical mind is aware of. We then enter the magical kingdom of EASY WORLD a reality where universal forces help us to get things done in an easier more effective fashion. We let go and let GOD. In 12 step programs we turn it over to our higher power.
EASY WORLD works because we are not alone. We have a GOD connection!!
When I decided to stop smoking I was faced with two different belief experiences.
1. quitting smoking is difficult and there is a high chance of relapse.
2. quitting smoking is easy, fun, and permanent
I chose to ask my higher power that power outside my rational left brain to show me how to do it easy, effectively, and permanently.
Ask and Receive I do not serve a stingy GOD he delivers for me. 3 weeks later the desire for cigarettes was gone never to return.
The gift of this was that during this time I met Julia and her EASY WORLD ideas.
I chose to continue and lost weight the EASY WORLD way also.
Challenging relationships were smoothed out by choosing the EASY WORLD way.
The book "Choosing EASY WORLD" helps us to get things done in EASY WORLD.
To pop into the EASY WORLD reality simply say "I choose to live in EASY WORLD"
Then take the action step of BREATH-RELAX_ALLOW and then observe the magic unfold.
Something else. Google The EASY WORLD SONG sing along with it and sing it several times per day and watch the magic unfold.
