I can't get to Easy World!

I have read Julia's book and I absolutely loved it!  I try saying the mantra every time I feel overwhelmed or just need to be in easy world but unfortunately easy world is not the real world.  In the real world I am 2months behind on my  rent, my car payment is due, my phone was just shut off for nonpayment and my electric will be shut off if I don't pay it this week.  I am currently unemployed I was laid off in May of this year and I keep looking for a job any job at this point but there isn't anything out there.  So instead of sitting around and doing nothing besides looking for a job and taking care of my family I decided to start a house cleaning business.  Well its been about 6 weeks now and I have one weekly job and I did 2 seasonal cleanings.  So I don't even have clients!  I hate not having money !  So how can easy world help me with that?  i even play lotto in hopes to win even $30 for groceries!  I don't  have anyone i could borrow money from i just don't know what to do anymore!  I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any.....or maybe the winning lotto numbers.... Helen

  • thank-you to all of you for all of your input and your help....Helen
  • don't worry helen...it'll be over soon. you can only fall out of the airplane with no parachute for so long....and then you hit the ground. and there you will be....probably be easier then bc you'll know what the ending to this worry that you've got going is. Will be a relief to be done with it, I reckon...how ever it turns out. And I'm pretty sure you'll move on from there.

    And, who knows....maybe something good will happen. like...your next breath. and the next. and the sunrise in the morning....some coffee in a cup, the smell of it. It's getting late on the east coast. goodnight.

  • Bless you Patrice .. that's very kind of you to say. :)

    There is something quite magical about being in the moment ... even for a brief time. It brings me closer to some happy contented state that I want to believe is my natural state. My sleeping has improved so much I've ditched the herbal sleep aids and .. no question .. some really lovely and unexpected things have happened for me .. even since I posted that. With those things a confidence is growing in me .. getting stronger and I find it easier and quicker to respond as soon as I notice something isn't as I would like it. I just drop it as best I can and say "I choose Easy World for right now" .. and go on about whatever else I can do .. even if it's just look around the room I'm in and think ''gosh .. I love that color of green on my walls .. and the border really matches it perfectly" .. or marvel at the lovely colors in the orange stripes in one of my kitties fur .. just something .. anything .. to bring me back to this very moment in all it's quiet specialness.

    I'm liking this a lot. Julia .. I be luvin' you big bunches for what you've helped me find. :)
  • Helen, thank you for posting your questions because it has resulted in many wonderful responses, in particular, Sherry's.

    Sherry, you said:

    I started with just saying I'd "rest" in Easy World and that seemed to work. I'd head to my back deck .. cry until there were no tears left .. then sigh and repeat resting in easy world .. and then I'd calm and just focus on anything I could .. like a teensy bug on a leaf of my lilac bush .. or the clouds in the sky how they whisp along and change form .. on the way the breeze blew ripples across the long grass in the field behind my house .. and just anything that I could appreciate it's innate beauty and goodness in that moment. I'd stay there for as long as I could too.


    While it seems like such an insignificant thing to do, it is clearly a lot more powerful than it looks. Like Helen and others here, I'm going through some pretty tough financial times (as well as relationship problems with my daughter), so it has been a challenge to rest in Easy World (don't even have enuf money to get the book yet) for any length of time. But comments like yours are great reminders to me of how important it is to be happy in the present moment because it's how you feel NOW that determines what you will experience in the future.

    So I'm going to do my best to follow your advice and rest in Easy World as often as I can. I'm in Hawaii so it shouldn't be all that difficult. Thanks for sharing,

    Aloha,
    Patrice

  • Helen sometimes life sucks

    We have tools like breath-relax-allow

    I turn this over to my higher power

    Just say I let EASY WORLD handle this

    I easily deal with this situation

    I sing the EASY WORLD song several times per day.

  • I was having problems getting into Easy World .. certainly staying there wasn't happening.

    I had so much going on .. debt issues (almost-ex-husband created but with MY name on it -.- ) .. 90 days to have work done on my house to keep insurance happy .. no money to do it and the time was now down to just a couple of weeks. And with a mortgage in Canada you MUST have insurance so I could risk losing it my house .. and a sweet relationship that has been so hard to let go of.

    I started with just saying I'd "rest" in Easy World and that seemed to work. I'd head to my back deck .. cry until there were no tears left .. then sigh and repeat resting in easy world .. and then I'd calm and just focus on anything I could .. like a teensy bug on a leaf of my lilac bush .. or the clouds in the sky how they whisp along and change form .. on the way the breeze blew ripples across the long grass in the field behind my house .. and just anything that I could appreciate it's innate beauty and goodness in that moment. I'd stay there for as long as I could too.

    Then .. little things started to happen .. like a friend found me on FB I'd been looking for .. I got to move my mailbox to MY side of the highway .. I'd tried to get permission before and they said it was too much of an inconvenience for the deliverer .. suddenly it's THEIR idea and do I mind?? LOL True broadband was made available in my area .. at a third of the cost of the unreliable satellite internet I'd had for so long ... just wonderful to have.

    Then my almost-ex shows up saying he mentioned the work for the house to a few fella's he works with and one was coming to the house to do the shingling and all the other things (21 in total) .. for FREE!! in a few days. Still had to use the credit card for materials but .... a few weeks after the ex again shows up .. he'd gotten a line of credit .. put the credit card debt on it AND .. it's ONLY in HIS name!! So .. off the hook for that.

    Then .. he gives me some cash .. you have to understand this guy .. he doesn''t do those sorts of things for me .. ever. I was able to get a new freezer and fill it and my fridge and cupboards .. they haven't been so well stocked in a very very long time. And I got a few books for myself including "Choosing Easy World" I am happy to say. :)

    It's gotten easier and easier to pull myself into the Easy World feeling space .. I say it like a mantra before going to sleep and when I wake up even .. so much so that I have decided to turn a lovely relationship (that had changed drastically due to the pressures in his life a year and a half ago and I've been unable to let go of) over to the universe now too and trust that somehow it'll all be sorted in my favor some how .. some way .. with or without him .. but sorted to my complete joy.

    I guess I had finally reached a place where I knew deep down inside that I had to become a happy person again .. that nothing was more important than that I find that state of being once more .. and I'm doing whatever I can .. whatever it takes to be whole again.

    Just hang in there and give yourself at least a break even for a few minutes and magic will happen for you as it has for me .. of this I am sure. :)

    Best wishes to you.
  • Hi, Helen...
    I'm new here, and it seemed appropriate I comment, 'cause I'm in a similar situation right now...To wit, feeling overwhelmed by all the problems that need solving. Crikey, I've got messes!!

    What I'm finding is that the number one task, for me, is to set a HABIT of being in Easy World, and staying there LONG enough before being yanked back to Difficult World 'reality'. That takes some successes under my belt... After all, the problems in DW ARE real, so it's hard not to notice that solutions aren't popping fast enough to avoid the pain. That's Difficult World Dictator at work. It's a viscious cycle, to be sure, and it's hard to stay faithful that Easy World works, and IS working, if we only choose it.

    What I'm finding is that it really pays to choose SMALL goals at first, preferably ones that, fulfilled, will make you happy in the short run. When THEY happen to me, I am encouraged to try another RIGHT away, because it was so much fun! Nothing is too 'insignificant' at this beginning stage, if it cheers you up, even if briefly. The longer you can stay in that state of mind, the easier it becomes.

    Example: If you're 'out there' and you're hungry for lunch, and you have $2.50 for food, make a game of it, and ask Easy World to show you where to go for something delicious for THAT amount. Then, and this is key.... REALLY OPEN UP, and ALLOW Easy World to take over. This really works, I think, because AT FIRST, it's easier to allow EW to guide you, if you don't feel that an early demise is waiting if you don't get it right. The stakes aren't THAT high! Once you get the idea of how EW FEELS when it's working for you, you can go on to the 'meatier' problems.

    If you feel really overwhelmed by the complexity of a BIG problem, try focusing on a smaller part of it. Example: Your car, say, is 'broken' and has numerous nasties to be fixed. Concentrate on only one part for Easy World to solve, an easier 'byte', say, the best deal on a part, or the best mechanic for the electrical system. I think, when you are calm enough about a smaller thing getting solved, and have several successes to brag about, EW just jumps right in gear, and before you know it...Presto! You're in the zone, and aren't so panicky.

    Hope this helps, and I'm right with ya! Lotsa Love, Maia
  • thank-you for your reply I do understand what you are saying but it still doesnt help that the money I need for my bills is not available. thank-you
    • It doesn't matter. If you can get your DWD to shut up for even a day, and get into that wonderful feeling of Easy World, your situation can turn around very quickly. I wasn't doing too well myself, but on the days I've gotten myself into the feeling place of Easy World, I've received about $1,000 in unexpected income and that will turn into a monthly income of about $400. Effortlessly and out of the blue! ONLY on those days I was feeling good. A pretty good start, I'd say!
      In Easy World, all your money worries DON'T EXIST! Just get there!!! You'll see! You've gotta do the breathe, relax, allow and enjoy as well as the phrase. And feel it physically. You'll get there!!!
    • Also, wondering if you have tried the emotional clearing method she outlines..
