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.
Before you climbed a high mountain, surely you would test all your equipment to see that it was sound and that the rope had no flaws in it, for your very life would depend on it. You would choose a good guide and would need to have absolute confidence in that person. You would have to be willing to follow the guide's instructions and obey orders without question. So with this spiritual life. Until you have learnt discipline and obedience, until you choose to do My will and obey My voice, you cannot hope to start on this life of adventure. It would not be safe for you to do so. If you feel you are stuck in a rut, take stock of yourself and find out what it is deep within that is holding you up. What are you doing about self-discipline? Can you say "no" to yourself yet? What about obedience? Are you willing to follow My will no matter what the cost?
