Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance for Friday 3 April

The key to your happiness and contentment lies deep within you, within your own heart and mind. The way you start each day is very important; you can start off on the right foot or the wrong one. You can wake up with a song of joy and gratitude in your heart for the new day, for being alive, for the very wonder of living, and for being in tune and harmony with the rhythm of all life. You can expect the very best from the coming day, and therefore draw it to you. Or you can start the day with a chip on your shoulder, disgruntled and out of rhythm. You are responsible for what today will bring, and knowing it gives you an even greater responsibility than those souls who are not aware of it and therefore know no better. You cannot blame your state of mind on anyone else. It all rests with you.

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 April 2020

Let the sun illuminate parts of you that are dormant, numb, or forgotten. Rub the sleep from your eyes and welcome the new dawn.

We are being challenged to navigate turbulent waters. This is the stage of evolution we are at and reflects the temporary nature of the human condition. ‘This too shall pass’ and we will welcome the new dawn. When one awakens and realises the true state of affairs, there is no interruption of experience. It is not that something that was not there is now manifest. It is more like becoming cognisant of the presence of something that has always been there and known to be there, but forgotten.
 
A large part of our identities have been sculpted by our parents, teachers, friends, and how we want others to see us. We have carried this as our reference point of who we are; the person we normally take ourselves to be – preoccupied with its goals, fears, desires, and issues.
 
Beneath the surface is a deep and vast authentic Self, but its presence is usually veiled by the noise of the smaller ‘I’ with its needs and demands. This confusion between the small self and larger Self is a core illusion of the human condition, and penetrating this mirage is what awakening is all about.
 
Before recognising greater realities that are more extensive and multidimensional, it is a good idea to first learn to handle our own energy and be accountable for the concrete results of our thoughts and emotions. Because, as we awaken, they automatically and immediately are translated into action.
 
For us to successfully create a new paradigm world in the midst of the current planetary chaos, we must discover a more light filled and inclusive approach to everyday life. By deep listening and acting on what feels like intuition, we can correct and refine our alignment to the instinctual impulses of our authentic Self.

Invoke your Divine presence with the intention to allow dormant memories deep within to stir and heal key obstacles to your wakefulness. Ask for an energetic opening to remember your True Self – with such certainty that you will never forget again.
 
May the emanations of the Angel of Awakening fill your month ahead.
May you remember your origin and welcome the new dawn.

Warmly,
Kathy Tyler
 
P.S. If you worked with the Angel of Wisdom during March, take a few moments to release it with your gratitude before welcoming the Angel of Awakening into your life for the month of April.
