That was easy!!

“Our thoughts hold more medicine than many of the astonishing breakthroughs of our time.”– Kris Carr

I am so happy to be back home and ready to ease back into my regular writing routine. Traveling is so much fun, but so is talking about it. Or rather writing about it which I do on my travel blog and in my work with CNN Travel, Huffington Post and several other travel mags.

Today, I’m tying up loose ends (just got back last night) and want to rave about my favorite word, “EASY!”

My beautiful colleague and friend, Annola Charity, presented me with a Staples “Easy” button this morning at my Spiritual Entrepreneurs group. This three-inch red button, when pressed, repeats “That was easy.” I’m not a TV watcher so I didn’t realize Staples has been advertising that sentiment for years.

But it’s certainly one of my mantras and one of the most important beliefs you can have.

In honor of this amazing gift, I’d like to re-run the following blog post:

“Quantum physics is not just stranger than you think, its stranger than you can think.”
—Deepak Chopra

Life is a piece of cake!!!


Today, I’d like to talk to you about the most dangerous four-letter word in the English language. This word that I’ve specifically banned from my vocabulary is especially damning when combined with something you’re trying to do: lose weight, attract money, get a hot date.

The word is “hard,” as in “It is hard to……(pick your poison).

You know you’ve said it:

“It’s hard to change old habits.”

“It’s hard to find a better job.”

“It’s hard to empty my mind when meditating.”

Because our beliefs are so powerful, literally sculpting our lives on a moment-by-moment basis, to believe (and especially to say out loud) that anything is difficult is extremely counterproductive.

Still, even those of us who know about (and happily use) the power of our thoughts sometimes speak that ugly word.

I prefer the words “smooth” and “easy” and repeat those beautiful sentiments as often as I can.

I affirm that whatever I want to accomplish is smooth and easy. In fact, the less I do, the better things turn out. The more I hand over to the universe (the field of potentiality that is SO much smarter than me), the better my life becomes.

Because I occasionally still see limitations, still believe the headlines, still believe in old school conditioning, I’m much better off affirming smooth and easy and turning things over to the big guy.

A friend of mine, by simply changing her phraseology, has lost 18 pounds in the last month. She hasn’t changed her diet or started a new exercise program. She simply started believing that losing weight is easy, a piece of cake.

What diet program could be more simple than that?

So I ask you today, with all you’re trying to accomplish, will it be hard or will you join me in affirming “smooth” and “easy.”

  1. I love this post and am going to share it. I love those easy buttons going to get some the next time i am in the USA. Life is so much easier when we become aware of the thoughts we think and the words we use.
    Namaste ♥♡♥

  2. Let me just say: I LOVE THIS POST!! What a fabulous word, “easy”. After reading this post, I went to my coffee table- which happens to be a chalkboard horizontal over a frame- and I wrote the word “easy” over fifty times. As a student in a masters program, easy certainly isn’t always the first word that comes to my mind! Let’s change that, shall we? 🙂 Now that was easy!

    Lots of love and gratitude for you!

  3. I am glad you love the button!! I kept one for myself. And as I was thinking about ‘ smooth and easy’, it made me think about the whole ‘no pain, no gain” saying.We often shrink away from the thought of pain which makes it hard to do what we want to do. Unfortunately we have been told that anything worth having has to be earned from hard work. But the Universe tells a different story. It says, ‘ask and it is given”. So I decided to change that mantra to ‘no pain, more gain”. And now I add’ smooth and easy”. And I love how life shows up in response to my belief that it is true!

  4. This reminds me of Julia Rogers Hamrick’s “Easy World” books. Easy World is where everything is easy. In Difficult World, things are hard. Sounds simplistic, but perhaps it really is that simple!
