Tosha Silver––Outrageous Openness--Letting the Divine Take the Lead (with an intro by Christine Northrup
Many years ago, I knew Tosha (somewhat) as a friend. I always liked and admired her. I knew she was an astrologer, and now I know that she has since then become famous, having given thousands of readings to people over the world. As she explains in this book, she realized that people needed more than readings of astrological charts. They needed spiritual guidance to find answers to their urgent needs and questions.
This book is indeed one that gives spiritual guidance, but it is unlike any other I have found. Tosha writes with cleverness and skill, and "Outrageous Openness" is in fact a fun read. Clever, spicy, even a bit racy at times, Tosha tells us like it really is when you let go of the need to control and let the divine provide the direction for your life.
Here is the book's description from Amazon. On this site you can 'look inside' to read a generous selection of the text itself and thus sample this witty, sometimes outrageous but always arresting presentation.
A collection of spiritual lessons, anecdotes, and thoughts on the Divine’s intervention in our lives, this brilliantly written and wonderfully entertaining book teaches us how to live purposefully and in line with the Force of Love.
“What if the Divine is constantly igniting roadside flares to get our attention? What if there actually is a Supreme Organizing Principle with an unbridled sense of humor? And what if we each have this ardent inner suitor who’s writing us love letters every day that often go unopened?”
Whether we know it or not, we all experience the touch of the Divine in our lives every single day. After twenty-five years spent consulting and advising tens of thousands of people from all over the world, Tosha Silver realized that almost all of us have similar concerns: “How do I stop worrying? How can I feel safe? Why do I feel so alone?” And often, “Who am I really?” For the passionately spiritual and the bemusedly skeptical alike, she created Outrageous Openness. This delightful book, filled with wisdom and fresh perspectives, helps create a relaxed, trusting openness in the reader to discover answers to life’s big questions as they spontaneously arise.
At its heart, Outrageous Openness opens the door to a profound truth: By allowing the Divine to lead the way, we can finally put down the heavy load of hopes, fears, and opinions about how things should be. We learn how to be guided to take the right actions at the right time, and to enjoy the spectacular show that is our life.
