Easy World: May 2007 Archives

I know I'm in Easy World when I decide to swim a few hours earlier in the afternoon than usual, find that the pool heater isn't working, call Peter, the pool man, catch him on his one half-day in town this week, just in the nick of time before he heads out again this afternoon to do a job in the mountains which will keep him away till Sunday. When I tell him the problem, he says "I'll be right over."

He’s here in a little over an hour and has it fixed in very short order. We had talked earlier on the phone about the new chlorine-free system he's going to be installing for us, and at that time, he said, "I need help getting to Easy World!" so I gave him a pep talk. Once I called him back about the pool heater problem, I started writing, inspired by our chat, and a few paragraphs for the EW book came flowing out. I printed them out so when he came over to fix the heater, I could give him a copy, as well as an EW poster, and some Peace and Calming essential oil. I suspect the Universe wanted him to touch into the Easy World vibe at our house.

He had to stretch to see the detour in his trip out of town in the pouring rain as being in alignment with EW. Of course, I said, "Well, it was EW for me! You get to choose if you will allow it to be part of EW for you."That's one thing I'm learning: I don't get to say if someone involved in supporting my time in Easy World perceives themselves as being there, too. That's their decision. But he left with food for thought. He's really wonderful and open and I have all confidence that he will figure out that he can relax and align with Easy World and he'll get as much or more done as when he is in overwhelm and fighting Difficult World!

FYI, we had a great teleseminar last night, “Everyday, Effortless, Easy World Magic,” and one of the people there was designer Ellen Kennon, renowned for her Ellen Kennon Full Spectrum Paints. You can read about her, her wonderful paints, and the fascinating connection we made a couple of years ago in my article, “Magical, Light-Filled Paints, Magical, Light-Filled Connections.” She’s gotten excited about Easy World and is planning to feature it in her Summer newsletter, Living Well.

Also on board was Raymond David Salas, who wrote a really neat article on Easy World and published it on his blog, ZenChillblog.com. Seems he found out about EW from the interview that Sonora did with me for her blog sonorajaynecase.blogspot.com, tried the EW invocation, and found his life spontaneously improving in multiple ways and decided to become a fulltime EW resident! He spoke up on the call last night—what a lovely, clear man he is! His blog is filled with lots of wonderful goodies—be sure to check it out.

Oh—and another woman spoke up to say that she had found out about EW through Raymond’s blog article. I just love how Easy World promotes itself! In fact, my new friend, Teresa Albright, told me today that she got very turned on about EW by reading the iliveineasyworld.com site, invoked EW, had a rash of great stuff happen in the next 24 hours, so she emailed a bunch of her friends to tell them about it, and tells me they were emailing their lists about Easy World!

I LOVE Easy World!!!

Forgiveness and acceptance

| | Comments (2)

I believe I’m going to need to get better at filing shorter blog entries more often. I see in my web stats that my loyal readers are checking, checking while I am silent! I’ve just been busy. With garden season upon me, I have extra extracurricular activities these days and there is always something I need to do for the mission.

My hope is that you’re not thinking that I am still feeling upset from the incident I wrote about last time. I have moved largely past that with the help of Spirit and using the script in Karol Truman’s Feelings Buried Alive Never Die. I don’t feel it would be right to share the script here since it’s her copyrighted material, but basically, you call upon your Spirit/Higher Self/God-In-You—whatever you want to call your overlighting higher power—and ask it to move through all layers of your being and through all time and heal all facets of your unacceptance of yourself (or whatever the problem is—and acceptance seems to be the umbrella for all such issues).

I was very much into it at the time and had prepped with essential oil blends of Forgiveness and Acceptance and I’m sure they super-charged the experience. I felt better immediately and have felt really good and quite clear since. I’m sure the incident that started my self-reflection and impetus to heal will smooth itself over in time. I have no desire to hold a grudge or to withhold Love, that’s for sure.

It is amazing how claiming a new level of self-acceptance can unburden one!

Positive vibrations coach, Sonora Jayne Case, did an interview with me for her blog and published it yesterday. There’s nothing startling there if you’re familiar with my story, but I think you’ll enjoy reading it. She tells me she has more interviews with other teachers lined up so you may want to check back to see who else shows up there! Thanks, Sonora, for helping get the word out about Recreating Eden and Easy World!

I’ve just completed the 1001 tasks that are necessary when I put together a newsletter, so in case you’ve been checking lately and finding no blog entry, that’s why. The Spring 2007 newsletter will be out in the morning with several new articles and other timely stuff. We’re also participating in an Amazon campaign that’s going on today, which always requires it’s own boatload of tasks. Tony and I have been pedal to the metal.

The Amazon campaign is for Peggy McColl’s new book, Your Destiny Switch, which is being released by Hay House tomorrow, May 1. I haven’t had a chance to read it but it sounds great. Neal Donald Walsch wrote the foreward and had great things to say about it. You can find out about all the goodies you can get when you buy a copy by going here. I'm offering some cool stuff--be sure to find my name in the box on the right at the top of the list of the participants and click on it. It's labeled "Spirituality, Wellness, Health."

I have a special appreciation for Peggy--she's the expert who has engineered all the Amazon campaigns for Hay House and others, and has been kind enough to include me, which has helped greatly in my becoming known. She is, as they say, a mensch!

I found a lovely metaphor in my Endless Pool yesterday. It was a bit soggy, but usable. (Go ahead—roll your eyes) I was swimming along against the current, doing my adapted version of breast stroke. I turn the current up pretty high so that I can lean into it and not sink, while keeping my toes touching the step that that is formed by the excavation for the deeper area, and I do the upper body breast stroke moves. But instead of frog kick, which is hard on my knees because of the strong thrust required, I just flex my knees and kind of bounce diagonally on the step in the same rhythm as I would normally do a frog kick. Yeah—I know—that’s a confusing description, but picture a leaping cat Jaguar hood ornament like this one, with the step at his back tippy-toes, and you’ve got the basic position.

Then imagine thrusting toward the current and being returned to the step over and over again. It’s an amazingly great substitute for a standard breast stroke, which is great, because I do love that stroke and would not want to give it up entirely.

I had a lot on my mind as I was doing this yesterday—let me confess, I was not in Easy World as I was thinking and stroking— and I found myself wobbling from left to right and having trouble staying centered in the current. My experience because of it was bumpy, whereas, usually, it’s been quite smooth. I realize that the difference was that my mind was not centered, and thus, my body was not centered, either. As soon as I realized this and brought my focus into Easy World, I was able to find the sweet spot in the current and coordinate with the flow of it and stay in the center.

Now, granted, the object in the Endless Pool is to swim against the flow of the water from the current generator, and in life, you generally want to go with the flow, but I believe the principle applies either way—if you are thinking thoughts with a Difficult World theme, you’re not going to have a smooth ride, you’re going to experience turbulence, and it’s going to be hard to find the center. So my pool is turning out to be a grand training tool for more than just my muscles.

I’ve kind of been overdoing it in my lust for getting back in shape—I’ve been swimming or doing aqua-aerobics for a solid 45 minutes every day since I got the pool, and it turns out, that may not have been all that smart. My body was not happy. I went to the chiropractor today and he muscle tested me and we figured out that for now I need to back off to 20 minutes of moderate-to-easy (!) swimming per day until I build up. I guess I’ve been doing as much breaking down as building up. So I skipped the swimming altogether today—the first time I missed in 12 days—and will start my new moderate regimen tomorrow. Patience is something I’m still learning…

Look for Rising Times in your inbox in the a.m.! And remember to check out Peggy's book!
