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.
Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance for Sunday 22 October
Stop for a moment in all your busyness, and see what you are putting first. Is it work? Is it living? Is it your wants? Your desires? Seek ye first My kingdom. Find your direct contact with Me and all else shall be added unto you. Do you not realise that your communion with Me means far more than anything else, for it is from this contact that all else stems. Do your part and put first things first. You cannot draw water from a well unless you get a bucket and let it down into the well, fill it with water and then draw it up. You have to do something; you have to make the effort and do your part. Standing at the top of the well looking at the water will not draw it up. So with this spiritual life; standing around watching others find their oneness with Me will not do it for you. Every soul has to do its own inner seeking and finding.

Monthly Theme for October 2017
Stay connected and let others in. Widen your channel of giving and receiving. Reach out with encouragement and be versatile and timely in your resourcefulness.
Support is often very subjective and can be confusing. How do you offer support, what do you give your energy to, what is for the highest, and how do you know what is best for yourself and others?
True support has two distinct aspects intertwined; love through the expression of gentleness and truth in the expression of realness. When we love without truth, we relate to others from the surface of ourselves, often in order not to make ‘waves’. On the other hand, when we only relate from truth it tends to create a feeling of distance tainted with judgment and limitation.
Weaving gentleness and realness together brings about balance in our lives with others. Sometimes support calls for loving someone in a way that gives them what they feel they need … empathy, help, affection or affirmation. Sometimes support needs to be for who they are inside as a soul and takes the form of confronting unconscious behaviour, saying what you are really feeling, or requiring accountability for words or actions.
It is not always easy to make the distinction between these two currents of support and to bring about healing. In the end, our capacity to express gentleness and realness and be fully ourselves rests ‘soul-ly’ within our commitment to what we feel life is about and what we value.
Finding ways to balance these strands within us with the same gentleness and realness reveals and brings a deeper sense of authenticity to our actions. This ultimately supports our own and each other’s inner nature with what it needs to flourish.
May your heart, mind and actions be filled with gentle authentic support. We hope the Angels continue to inspire your life.
