Inspiration

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 Monday 21 August

Everyone has had the experience of being thrown completely offbalance by something someone has said or done. Instead of facing it straight away, you may have allowed it to take hold of you and affect your whole outlook, until you found yourself tied up in knots and no good to anyone. You may have even started the day with the very best intentions, with love in your heart for everyone, determined to see the very best everywhere you look. Next time it happens to you, recognise what is happening and immediately raise your consciousness. Call upon Me. Let your mind be stayed upon Me, so that you become consciously aware of Me and My divine presence. See what a difference it will make to you. If you can quickly turn your thoughts to Me and to My divine love when you find yourself in a negative situation, everything can change completely. Remember this idea next time. Try it and see how it works.

Monthly Theme for August 2017

Let the mist of unworthiness evaporate. Move forward and embrace life as it presents itself to you. Practice the art of inclusion and allowing.

Self-acceptance is a gift of internal belonging that embraces who we are and who we are not. It widens our perception so that we can include the many paradoxes of life.

Acceptance reduces the conflict levels inside and around us and invokes change. It releases us from the struggle against reality and then new possibilities can open up to us that did not exist before.

Acceptance frees up our energy. It is a benediction, a blessing, a gentle rain that melts judgments, fears and doubts, and allows us to surrender to the truth of the moment without preferences.

It animates the big picture, welcomes a higher reality, and extends an invitation to embody our Human nature and our greater Being nature – in doing so, conflict ceases and we become one presence.

This month, look for experiences that you are rejecting or pushing against. If acceptance does not seem possible, practice relaxing your protective response that splits perceptions into division of right/wrong, good/bad, guilt/innocence. And let the mind unlock from its fixations.

May the Angel of Acceptance wrap its wings around you and hug you tightly filling you with acceptance, then offer it freely to all you meet.

Warmly,
Kathy
