Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance for Tuesday 22 May

Unless you allow a very small child to do things for itself, to feed itself, to walk, to dress itself, to write, to draw, to express itself, it will never develop and become independent and be able to stand on its own feet and make its own decisions. You have to stand back and allow it to make mistakes and to take a long time to master what it is learning to do. You have to be very patient and wait and watch, no matter how tempted you are to do it for the child to save time. Open your eyes and realise that life is a classroom in a school, and you are learning all the time. How often do I have to stand back and very lovingly watch you fumbling and struggling with life so that you can learn a vitally important lesson, a lesson never to be forgotten once it has been learnt and mastered? I have infinite love and patience.

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 May 2018

Change happens when you take responsibility for your awareness and apply it to your everyday life, small moment by small moment.

Life is an alchemical process of constant change from our bodies to our circumstances to our environment. How we respond to the evolving world of form directly relates to our ability to internalize our awareness, and focus our actions from the sacred inner space at the depth of our beings.

It is not about eliminating the ego or lower self. It is about allowing our higher nature to absorb the ego into itself and thereby transform it. To become a kind, loving, generous, and respectful being, we have to put effort into it by conducting ourselves according to our highest values. Every moment is an opportunity to recreate ourselves and it happens one feeling, one thought, one act at a time.

The inner journey of the soul through transformation is not simply a change in character, it is a realization of our true nature. This means our identity and daily consciousness ceases to be determined by our history. We shift dimensionally, we leave the content of the past and reside in our eternal presence.

We are spiritual beings inhabiting human bodies. It is time to up-level. Release hesitations and lingering self-doubts. Bring them to the altar of your heart for healing and transformation, and dare to become whom you know yourself inside to be.

We hope the Angels continue to inspire your life.
May your journey be gracious. Happy and Blessed month to you all.

Warmly,
Kathy Tyler
