Calling all fellow bookworms, library nerds, and general lovers of literature — it’s time for another book club episode of the podcast!
Whenever there are five Fridays in a month, we devote the extra Friday to a book that we can’t get enough of. This time we decided to have a conversation about a brand-new book by an author you may recognize (because our last book club episode was also about one of her books!), Tosha Silver.
This one’s called It’s Not Your Money: How to live fully from divine abundance. If you like the idea of exploring the intersection between money, spirituality, and practicality, you’re going to love this conversation.
We talked about:
- If it’s not “your money,” then whose is it??
- How to let go of the illusion that you’ve got to figure out how to make money all on your own.
- How to accept where you are right now, even if you’re broke.
- Fun, practical tools for letting go of your money fears and becoming a magnet to more abundance.
- How to trust in divine timing and believe everything is going to work out.
- Some personal stories about how we’ve let go of money anxiety (and the surprising results).
Leave us a comment below after you’ve listened to let us know what resonated most from this conversation. And in the true spirit of this book, we’d also LOVE to hear your stories of signs, synchronicities, and surrendering to the Universe (when it comes to money, or anything else!), so come share that, too!

I fell in love with Tosha when you did your Bonus Book episode back in November!
I bought the book and hi-lited the heck out of it.
Just yesterday I pulled it off the shelf and stuck it in my purse so I could skim through it on my lunch break (because I needed to be reminded of the importance of offering up and trusting vs. controlling). And today (because I still needed it), the Universe offered me more of what I needed to hear! Of course I ordered the book during the first few minutes of your podcast!!!!
Omg, that’s amazing! This is like, a meta-sign. Lol! So glad this found you at exactly the right time.
My story is about trusting in divine timing and surrendering. I had my first relationship as a freshman in college and I fell hard and fast. It didn’t last long, but I was devastated when it ended. I was so depressed for about a month I cried almost every night. Personally, I found prayer and reading self help books to be healing. I realized I was so much better off being happy with myself and I was (amazingly for someone as controlling as me!) able to let go. Little did I know as I was going through all of this my now-husband was secretly following me around campus trying to introduce himself. Three months later, when I was strong and confident, he did. The rest is history! It’s almost 10 years later, we’ve been married for three years and have a son together. I sincerely believe that everything happens for a reason even if it’s not apparent at the time.
WOW, what an amazing story, CT! I love this so much. What such great proof that, even when it seems like everything is falling apart, things might actually be working out exactly how they’re supposed to. Thanks for sharing!
For me, the ebb and flow of money and relaxing into being the conduit before accumulating was so meaningful. After my divorce I was in such a bad money place. Money going out all the time…for everything…cars breaking down, medical bills, kids stuff…I was constantly in a state of fear and disbelief. I can now see that all if this was preparing me for abundance. I’m in a great financial position right now. I have what I need. But I can feel myself starting to ‘hoard.’ I’m reading the book and doing it week by week. I’ve released some of my hoarding tendencies already in this first week.
Thank you for this episode. I’m getting ready to launch a group coaching/book study with 6 women and this will be our first book. We will do it week by week. I can’t wait to see what comes of it! Xo
I love that you’re going to do this with a book club! That’s going to be so powerful, keep us posted on how that goes! And YES, the “becoming a conduit” thing was one of the most helpful perspectives I took from this book, too. It’s so awesome that your divorce ultimately helped teach you how to flow in that way. 🙂
