018: How to Overcome Your Love/Hate Relationship with Money

By June 19, 2018June 30th, 2018The Simplifiers Podcast

Can we talk about money? Is that taboo?

Because let’s face it, a few of us have a love/hate relationship with money and wouldn’t it be nice to shake that off?!


My guest today is Meriflor Toneatto and she is the author of the new book: “Money, Manifestation & Miracles.”

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Why do women (typically) struggle with money?
  • Why is money an “emotional currency” and she shares the 4 driving forces behind it – fear, guilt, anger, shame… that keep us playing small, not charging enough and/or not have a right relationship with money.
  • How to simply and practically heal from your money issues… and how to become a Difference Maker in other people’s lives

Her wisdom really taps into a truth that is worth bringing back into the spotlight: We as women are natural community builders. When we lean in to each other, abundance grows. When we share what we learn with each other, the tide rises for all. When we become Difference Makers, we all win.

I hope you find this conversation incredibly inspiring and that it helps you approach money with a different set of lenses.

My challenge for you this week:

Write down a belief about money which has been holding you back – one that you’ve decided you are going to SQUASH. Take a photo and share it with me, privately or publicly, by snapping a photo of you doing the thing and tag @thesimplifiers on Instagram for added accountability and support!

Favorite quotes from this episode:

[11:04] “It just takes that moment where you step out in faith and go enough. I’m going to make a change.” – Mary

[13:16] “There’s something happens to the human spirit when you’re at the bottom and you just say, you know what? I’m going to go for it because everything [else] is stripped away.” – Meriflor

[14:21] “Failure is just a learning point. It is literally a learning point on your journey.” – Mary

[15:53] “When women are empowered with money, they become Difference Makers because they’re not only going to change their lives for the better, but they’re going to do that with their families, with their communities at large. And if they have a really big platform, they’re going to do it with the world.” – Meriflor

[17:20] “Just imagine for a second… if every woman on the planet could shift their relationship with money to be something that is empowering or positive?” – Mary

[18:55] “Money is an emotional currency because it’s strongly tied to our sense of self-worth, our self-confidence, our feelings of sensing that we deserve this, and feelings of safety and security, which is huge for women.” – Meriflor

[25:08] “And that’s where you need a trusted mentor, coach, best girlfriend, accountability group or something that helps you just level set and check in.” – Mary
