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 30 April
The joy of giving is tremendous. As you learn to give and give wholeheartedly of the gifts and talents which are yours (everyone has different ones, and they all function on different levels), so will you grow in grace and stature. If you have a happy, sunny nature, and you give of it wherever you go, it will be returned to you a thousandfold, for everyone responds to a sunny disposition. Always remember, "As you sow, so shall you reap." If you sow criticism, intolerance, disloyalty and negativity, you will reap these qualities, for you draw them to you. Why not start right now sowing seeds of joy, happiness, love, tenderness and understanding, and see what it will do to you? Your whole outlook on life will change, and you will find that you will draw the very best in life to you. The joy you give will be reflected by all those souls around you, for everyone loves a joyous giver and responds to that giving.

Monthly Theme for April 2017
Use your sharp-sightedness to make clear distinctions and wise choices. Move forward with confidence in your inner compass.
Discernment is the recognition of the soul’s impulse within our lives. It builds our intuitive ability to act with an awareness of the power that is concealed within the present moment. Discernment requires that we regularly take a personal inventory of our values, beliefs, past actions, present hopes and future dreams.
We live our lives based on what we believe. Our actions are preceded by our beliefs. Our consciousness is reflected back to us. What we look for we will find. So, the question is ‘where do our beliefs come from?’. I would guess the overwhelming answer is ‘from what others have told us’. We have very few original thoughts that comprise our beliefs. As individuals, we are defined by assumptions that have been formed over generations.
But, what if we are more than this? What if we are powerful beings about to awaken from a long night of dreams? What if we are at a tipping point of illumination, on the verge of uncovering the deep knowing of our origin and with it the capacity to bring about global peace? What would it be like to feel our connections to the whole and choose our actions based on this as reality? How would you be different today? How would this realisation influence your actions?
Our collective challenge and opportunity is to surrender the illusions that keep us cocooned in assumptions and limitations. And, like the caterpillar, dissolve into our imaginal selves and redefine the world envisioning a future that welcomes the butterfly.
We hope the Angel of Discernment will illuminate your life this month. May your heart and mind discern and embrace the presence of your soul.
