Editorial Reviews

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.

When I first encountered the title of this book-- Choosing Easy World-- I thought 'Uh-oh, no way!'-- it sounded all to much like the silliest new age malarkey. I imagined it would be similar to 'The Secret' and some other things that, for a lot of reasons I won't go into, I don't believe are real or valid truth teachings. However, after checking out her Facebook page and website, something made me buy this book online, and I was incredibly pleasantly surprised-- it was better than I could have imagined, and mirrored many of the things my own inner guidance has been trying to teach me all these years. The author is really quite aware of the pitfalls to avoid (i.e. encouraging greed and excess, creating reality with the 'small' self rather than surrendering and allowing the Divine Self to provide by grace, blaming victims, too much 'absolutism,' which leads to the idea that we don't need to be concerned with what we eat or be stewards of the earth.... etc.).... It's just a really great book, full of wonderful wisdom about choosing what she calls 'Easy World,' but others have called it 'The Inner Kingdom' or 'The Pure Land' or 'The Realm of True Form,' or 'Paradise'-- right here, right now, and continually living in expectation of everything in our lives working out in the most beneficial way for one's own good as well as the good of the commonweal. ¢¾ I highly recommend it.

When we are working only in our left brain rational mind our choices can be limited to what we already know or experience in our immediate environment.

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.

This book is about a mindset (or energy connecting force) which people can use to change their world. The author outlines the steps needed for people to change the way they think about life. The book also incorporates individual true stories which illustrates how the concept works in reality.I've followed this concept for a couple of years. It is refreshing to have a book which outlines the whole concept in an easy to understand way. Since I learned how to change the way I look at and respond to my life, my life has changed for the better. It is more than just positive thinking. It is a way of life. It encompasses the thoughts and feelings of ease and optimism. At the same time, when you see things in a new light you become more inspired. Inspiration will lead to inspired action. The book assists individuals in turning their lives around from the inside out. This energy, of which we are all made of, is part of the fabric of life. Everything is made from it. This includes our thoughts. If we see it all as a living entity, we can understand more clearly how it all connects together. Our life reflects our mind set. Choosing Easy World lets the reader understand that life doesn't have to be so hard. We really do have a choice, no matter how bleak things seem. Have your ever had a day where everything just fell into place? "Coincidences" happened just when they needed to. This doesn't have to be a rare occurrence. It takes time to allow yourself to really believe that life can be easy, but once you do things start to change. Julia Rogers Hamrick had created a nice manual for making life the best it can be. I highly recommend this book to those who have been having way too many "bad days" or for those who want to keep the good days rolling.
