Claim Your Inheritance

Then she received a surprise letter informing her that her father had died and left her a substantial inheritance—enough to start her coaching business and a lot more.

Like Lana, you may feel fatherless—not so much for a physical father, but for a source of support, abundance, and well-being to live the life you would choose. You may feel in some way deprived or outside the circle of enoughness. Meanwhile the universe has ingenious ways and means to take care of you.

Bashar defines abundance as “the ability to do what you need to do when you need to do it.” This definition says nothing about a particular amount of money in your bank account or a specified way your support should come. There are an infinite number of ways you can be taken care of. Money is just one of them.

I sat on an airplane next to a woman who told me that she and her husband wanted to live amidst lush nature on the island of Kauai, but the couple did not have money to make such a purchase. Then they met a family that had just inherited an 1100-acre estate in one of the most beautiful areas of that island. The family lived far away and needed caretakers for the estate. They didn’t have to ask this woman twice. Now she and her husband live there full time, enjoy all the amenities as if they owned the property, and the owners hardly ever visit. This entire transaction occurred without the couple having to pay even a penny.

Don’t get stuck on how your supply should show up. You may have your idea that it should come through a particular person, job, or investment, but it could come in any one of a thousand ways. The universe is clever and creative when it comes to manifestation. Let it take care of you.

Someone gave me a pamphlet titled, Are You Letting Life Love You? That pamphlet sat on my coffee table for years, and every time I looked at the title I had to do an honest introspection. We spend lots of time trying to make life love us, through people and things and events, but less time noticing how life is already loving us. You have been taken care of very nicely thus far. The hand of Grace that has provided for your needs will not stop now. The ego wants us to believe that the current challenge is an exception to the presence of love, but it is not. The universe has not let you down so far, and it will let you down now or ever. You are valuable and you are loved. This is God’s vision of you, calling for you to join it.

You are not fatherless, abandoned, or unsupported. Those thoughts are tricks of the mind that is fooled by current appearances. But appearances cannot override the truth that you have an infinite, eternal, loving source that will give you just what you need just when you need it.

A Course in Miracles tells us, “Trust would settle every problem now.” Instead of working harder, trust more. You have an inheritance to claim.
