Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance for Tuesday 27 October

A new concept is like a seed planted in the warmth of your house. The seed cannot be taken straight out of that atmosphere until it is strong enough to be planted where it has to withstand the outer elements. So with a new concept; it cannot be pulled out like a conjuror pulls a rabbit out of a hat. It takes time to give it substance and form. It has to be tried out with the few before it can be given to the many. It takes great love and patience to do it; it takes dedication and devotion. This process is what is taking place at this time with the New Age. It is very new. Many new ideas and concepts are being born, and each one has to be tried out, understood, loved and cherished. When you are at the spearhead of the New Age, you must be willing to go ahead fearlessly and try out the newest of the new.

Eileen Caddy’s daily guidance was part of the bedrock the community was built on in the early days of Findhorn and the concept of inner listening is very much part of individual and community practice to this day. Her messages, from what she called ‘the still, small voice within’, are still inspirational, uplifting and powerful words of love and support.

Your unique angel for the day, and the monthly theme based on an angel quality, come from The Game of Transformation®, created by Joy Drake and Kathy Tyler at Findhorn in the 1970s. The Game has become part of the Findhorn Foundation’s culture, and many people all over the world love to choose an angel quality to overlight their day or year, or a particular project or event.

Monthly Theme for October 2020

Move from a place of knowing within you rather than as a result of adaptation to outer experience. Let go of your assumptions and need to control life’s creative process.

It does not matter what spiritual path you’re on, an ultimate sense of peace comes down to one question: Can you let go of the need to control your life, and trust there is a benevolent force guiding all that ever has, is, and will happen?
 
Trust is the soul’s way of attuning to the fundamental laws of reality. There is a deep rhythm that moves through all life that cannot be controlled by our will. When trust informs our experience, it allows our psyche to relax and our soul to be at peace with our situation. We can rest in unquestioned confidence that the universe provides, that we have and will receive what we really need. In fact, often beyond what we alone are even capable of imagining.
 
When we have a lot of ‘basic’ trust, we are courageous and take risks. We don’t suppress our competencies. We engage in life wholeheartedly, doing what feels appropriate with the confidence that it will work out. Life becomes a story of creation not an obstacle course.
 
Without basic trust, we tend to react to what arises in accordance with our conditioning, wanting our life to go one way or another. We cling to predetermined assumptions and outcomes. We become tense and contracted and do all we can to manipulate the circumstances to fit with our desires.
 
Here is a suggestion for changing the automatic internal response to external signals. When a traffic light turns yellow and there is a safe distance to stop before it turns red, what do you tend to do? Do you accelerate to 'make it through'? If so, this is a metaphor for what happens inside when our yellow ‘worry light’ goes off — we accelerate; try harder, move faster, do more; all stress responses to our conditioning. Trust is the ability to stop and wait for the green light to signal the time to move forward again.
 
Why not, for the month of October, practice putting on the brake when the light is yellow and taking that moment to pause and breathe in the deeper rhythm of life while waiting for the green light to again signal you to go.
 
Rest and know that all is very, very well – the Light is about to go green … till then – increase your capacity for loving thoughts and kind actions. We hope the Angels continue to inspire your life.
 
Warmly,
Kathy Tyler
 
P.S. If you worked with the Angel of Transformation during September, take a few moments to release it with your gratitude before welcoming the Angel of Trust into your life for the month of October.
