Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance

Guidance for 7 April

Only as you expand your consciousness are you open and receptive to the new all around you and can become attuned to new thoughts, new ideas and new ways of life. Be prepared to see beyond the immediate into higher dimensions, higher realms, and open to the ways of the Spirit. There is much you can understand and accept intuitively but at which the mind boggles, so why waste time trying to work everything out with the mind? Why not be willing to live and act intuitively and inspirationally? When you do, you are functioning from a raised state of consciousness and are receptive to the new. You become a clear channel for the new to unfold in and through you. So raise your consciousness from the negative to the positive, from the destructive to the constructive, from the darkness to the light, and from the old into the new, and see what happens. You will find the old will fall away, revealing the glorious new. Source: Findhorn Foundation Website


While researching this article I discovered that Findhorn's founders were lead to Findhorn, not by God, but by aliens.

According to the Fortean Times, in his scathing article, Saucers Over Findhorn, Andy Roberts writes about how the founders of Findhorn were lead to the site after Eileen Caddy received a channelled message, which appeared in her inner eye, written in letters of fire: LUKANO. When the Caddy's could not make heads nor tails of the word, a medium by the name of Naomi tuned in and announced that LUKANO was the captain of a Venusian ‘mother ship’ who wanted to make contact with the Caddys. There continued to be channelled messages between Eileen Caddy and the Venusians.

Andy Roberts writes: For all their talk of the Community being formed by the guidance of God, one of the core beliefs held by Findhorn’s founders in the Fifties and Sixties was that flying saucers existed, and their occupants were in psychic contact...

Eileen Caddy, was awarded the MBE for ‘service to spiritual enquiry’. According to the Community’s newsletter, “Eileen chose to hand the medal to God”. What God thought of the award was not recorded but it may have been more pertinent to ask, “What did the aliens think?”

My story takes yet another odd turn when a Google search for Perelandra, the garden, lead me first to a wikipedia article about the novel, Perelandra (also titled Voyage to Venus), the first book in The Space Trilogy, by C.S. Lewis, first published in 1943.

So this begs the question: Were C.S. Lewis, Eileen Caddy and Machaelle Wright all receiving messages from aliens?


Today, I was replying to fellow writer, Wizzie Crone’s remarks on my story: "The Holy Spirit: The Helper or Just a Coincidence?":

"Like many others, I believe we have spirit guides or the higher self, which I believe is what is meant by the Holy Spirit. Like Kitty, I believe this spirit is female. I believe in the godhead as father/mother. I believe there are no accidents, that everything happens for a reason. I believe we can do much more than we think we can. Heavens. This sounds like my credo. Didn't intend that. Lilleyth, your hub has inspired me. Thanks." - Wizzie Crone

I started my reply, then, as I often do, got sidetracked when I recalled another story that had happened decades ago that I wanted to tell her. I typed out a long story in my reply and then accidentally hit the wrong button and it was deleted instead of posted. Because it was such a long reply, I decided to just forget it and post a short reply thanking her for her comments.

Here is the story I had written in my reply to Wizzie that I accidentally deleted.

I’ve always been interested in fairies, devas, elves, and angels. Fellow Hubpages writer, Kittythedreamer, after looking through my garden photos, remarked that she was jealous because she saw fairies there. So I've been thinking about what I call garden devas, and actually paying more attention to what is going on in my garden. Then I remembered the Findhorn Garden and this strange coincidence that took place decades ago, when I was a young wife with two young children:

During the time I stayed at home with my small children, I spent a lot of time investigating everything paranormal, UFO's, aliens, as well as The Holy Spirit or The Helper, and other forms of spirituality which I had been doing since I discovered I was psychic around the age of 10. It was during this time of spiritual exploration that I read about The Findhorn Garden. The Findhorn Garden was created out of basically barren land beside a trailer park in Findhorn, in northern Scotland, about 40 years ago. Peter and Eileen Caddy and their colleague, Dorothy Maclean, with the assistance of nature devas and elementals, turned the sandy landscape into an incredible garden from which giant vegetables and flowers grew. The story goes that God told Eileen Caddy to move to the Findhorn Bay Caravan Mobile Home Park.

According to Dorothy Maclean, in her book To Hear the Angels Sing..."through my telepathic contact with the angelic Beings who direct plant growth, specific instructions and spiritual assistance were given. The resulting garden, which came to include even tropical varieties of plants, was so astonishing in its growth and vitality that visiting soil experts and horticulturists were unable to find any explanation for it, and eventually had to accept the unorthodox interpretation of angelic help...The devic or angelic beings work at that level where the divine image or idea is sketched out into the archetypal patterns for all forms. The devas, whose name stems from a Sanskrit word meaning literally 'shining ones,' hold these archetypes in consciousness, wielding and patterning the forces which vivify the physical form and stepping these energies down to the elementals or nature spirits, the 'blue collar workers' who build the forms through which Spirit reveals itself."

And so it was, shortly after reading the book, I visited my mother. She was complaining about her geraniums, which she had brought inside for the winter and placed among her houseplants. It was her custom to allow the plants to remain dry, in a dormant state, until early spring. Usually, by this time of year, the plants sprout new leaves and begin to break dormancy. But they were just setting there doing nothing except looking very dead and she was complaining about it. When I told her the Findhorn Garden story, suggesting she talk to her plants, without hesitation or questioning my suggestion she immediately yelled, as was her way: "I'm going to throw out those geraniums if they don't start sprouting!"

Within a few days the geraniums were covered in leaves.


As I was writing about the geraniums, I was watching a television show Angels: Good or Evil .

I look up, and on the television was Eileen Caddy, of the Findhorn Garden.


The "Chill of Truth" is when you get the chills when something happens to you, and it is a sign from your Spirit that what happened is significant, a sigh.

Stunned at seeing Eileen Caddy's face before me, I am covered with chills.

Notice, I said "plants". Certainly, if one plant had decided to come out of dormancy, we would say it was just luck. No, my mother had several geraniums, looking dead and dusty in their clay pots on a bench in front of her window. She didn't buy plants, she had a green thumb like me, and would acquire a plant, take cuttings, dust them with root dust, and viola' she would have dozens of new plants. That's when I started talking to my plants, and after I moved to Raleigh, studied horticulture at N.C. State, and became a Master Gardener.

Now I'm thinking about my strange mother, recalling her showing me how to make a little cap out of an acorn for the fairies...


I’ve always been spiritual. Perhaps, because I spent so much time as a child surrounded by acres of gardens filled with butterflies, moths, bees and wasps, I somehow attracted a few devas?

Is this just magical thinking, or is Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance for today's date, directed at me?

Or was this just a coincidence?

The Library Angel again?

Heck if I know. But I think this is going to get a lot stranger...


Today, I began Googling Perelandra, which Sandra had reminded me of, and came across a garden blog, in which the writer, a sceptic, recounted the story behind Perelandra, and its founder, Machaelle Wright, who, like myself, was an abused child. She mentioned that abused children are often psychic, which I didn't know.

She explained how Machaelle would speak to this or that garden deva, each one assigned a specific task.

The blog writer, had a problem with, I call them camel crickets, which look like a cross between a cricket and a spider, and they jump very high. She decided to use Machaelle's technique to rid her house of the creatures.

She writes: "I put myself into a meditative state and mentally stated that I wanted to contact whoever was in charge of the insects. I didn’t see anything, hear anything, or have any awareness of any “presence.” I just talked, in my head, explaining that I didn’t want to kill them, but they scared me so much that I couldn’t tolerate having them in my condo."

She basically threatened them, telling the crickets to leave. (Similar to my mother threatening to throw out the geraniums). The next morning the crickets were gone and she hasn't see one for ten years!


This morning I decided to find a book that I have had for several years The Complete Guide to Faeries & Magical Beings. I did not know where to start looking as my library of paranormal books goes back to the 60's. But, I decided to look on a bookshelf in the spare bedroom first...and the first book saw was the book. Knowing that this was my Library Angel at work, I decided to use my technique of allowing the book to guide me and I held the 220-page book and closed my eyes for a second to calm myself. Then I opened the book, without looking, to the chapter on Nature Spirits.

Further Reading

Findhorn - The Findhorn Foundation is the result of the Caddy and McLean garden.

Perelandra Ltd - I learned about Perelandra after I moved to North Carolina in the 80's, shortly before Machaelle Wilson wrote about her technique of communicating with garden divas.

      A wonderful story! My thanks to Nell Rose for sharing it. I first read the story of Findhorn when I was a student at the Little Rock School of Parapsychology back in the 1970s. I borrowed the book from a friend, and I wish now that I’d bought a copy for myself. I have a friend who is a fantastic gardener, and one day while visiting her, she told me of a fairy ring on her property. I went down the hill to investigate, and I was attacked by a host of gnats, various bugs, and mosquitoes. She just laughed at me when I slunk back to the safety of her porch. She said the devas didn’t want to be disturbed and sent the bugs to stop me from entering their territory. Anyway, that’s my fairy story. Voted up and beautiful.

      Thanks you for taking time to read it and give me your insights. Those geraniums knew better than to disobey the Queen! Off with their heads!

      This is a delightful hub to read.

      I loved the story of your Mum and the geraniums. LOL

      I often talk to my plants.

      I don't believe it was just a Coincidence, evrything happens for a reason.

      Wonderful hub that made me smile

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      It seems my Library Angel is very hard working. I will definitely buy the book. Thank you Klara!

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Yes, about the trees, I feel the same and recently a tree that I allowed to grow on another property where I lived before I moved to my present home was cut down after 20 years. It had grown into a beautiful silver maple, and the new owner cut it down. It mad me so sad. It's funny you mention African Violets Magnolia, as that was my Grandma Jennie's favorite houseplant...and I have been trying to contact her (she's deceased). If you would like to grow more African Violets, take a leaf from your plant and bury the end in a mixture of half Vermiculite and potting soil and it will produce "baby" plants that you can either keep or share. Thank you for stopping by my Hub. I always enjoy reading yours.

      I am looking forward to my garden this year and this is about the time I start talking to the plants, only I say nice things to them, unlike your mother. LOL

      This winter I got an African Violet a friend almost killed. I started talking to it right away and let the dogs sniff and lick the leaves a little. Within a few weeks that violet just starting growing like crazy. I never raised violets before and always thought they were very fussy, but this violet is even going to bloom now.

      I know talking to plant works. I really feel bad when someone cuts down a tree, its just not right there should be laws against it and maybe one day there will be, they FEEL!

      Lilleyth, it's funny how I read this article right after the one about the library angel, and my comment about the book I found at the library "by chance" is one that applies to this subject. So I think it indicates that you're supposed to read this book.

      It's called We Borrow The Earth and it was written by Patrick Lee, an English gypsy who still lived the nomad life. He basically describes romany lore and the various planes of spirituality and the creatures that inhabit these planes. It was an interesting book, beautifully written. I highly recommend it. You might have to ask for it in the public library because it's out of print.

      Thanks for sharing your story. It's a beautiful hub.

      This is a wonderful hub. I have enjoy it as well as all the comments. I have always talked to my plants and like Deborah Brooks, I talk to the insects too! Are we a little crazy? I don't think so! I love your story about the Findhorn Garden. This makes me want to get out in my flower gardens this morning. Voted up and awesome! Have a beautiful day! :)

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      I've learned a lot doing this hub which started from an answer to another hub. Fascinating how it progressed from devas to aliens. Always does. Thank you so much for the comments. I am still reading up on Findhorn and Perelandra and C.S. Lewis. There is a weird vibe to at C.S. Lewis story.

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Very much appreciate your comments. I did not know that about trees warning others! How fascinating. I must Google that for more information. Yes, I do believe plants have feelings and have a very difficult time throwing away any unwanted divisions, or new seedlings. Thank you for the votes. I appreciate that very much.

      This is such a cool hub. It put me in mind of so many similar experiences I have had and now they are all swirling around in my head, yikes. I also love how the cricket lady 'checked in' internally as I do that all the time when I can't figure something out, and you'd be amazed--well, you get it, I can tell. Thanks for this. I loved it. (BTW I remember Findhorn! Good to know they're still around, doing cool stuff.)

      Martie Coetser 6 years ago from South Africa

      I enjoyed this interesting hub of yours, Lilleyth. I have stopped giving names to forces and powerful entities. I am a keen gardener and I regard my plants as living creatures with powers and forces of their own. Thoughts and emotions are two powers (forces) of humans; who can tell if plants have them too? Who was ever a plant to assure us that plants have no thoughts and emotion?

      It has been proved that some trees protect themselves against destroyer-insects and birds by making their own leaves inedible. They've even sent messages to each other, warning all trees in the region of the coming danger...

      Voted up and interesting :)

      wow that is an amazing story. I believe everything happens for a reason. I believe some people are more in tune to the Holy Spirit. Some people have the gift. sounds like you do have a gift. that is awesome. I too believe in talking to the plants and I talk to all animals and bugs.. LOl great hub

      Blessings to you


    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Interesting! I recently did a Haiku that mentions feeding crows...Final Spring...chills...Goodness this hub has taken some twists hasn't it!

    • kittythedreamer profile image

      Nicole Canfield 6 years ago from Summerland

      Lilleyth - I have a similar story of synchronicity. For the past week or so I've been asking for my patron god to show himself to me in my dreams...I have a matron goddess but never knew which god that I could connect with at this point in time. Well, last night, my ex (or what I have presumed to be a different form of my spirit guide) showed up in my dream. He looked right at me as if to say, "'s obvious". Well, that confused me. I kept thinking why would my spirit guide want me to follow him as a god? I decided to look in my encyclopedia of spirits for a god that has a name close to my ex's name. I found Bran...who is the Welsh god and also a "guardian spirit"...whose animal is the crow. As of late I have had massive amounts of crows in my yard that I've been feeding. The book also made mention that Bran shows up when you feed and care for the crows. So...I guess Bran is my patron god and has been for awhile, I've just never noticed!

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      I have a couple updates on this hub for anyone who is following it.

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      I know Kitty, some of us do take the "is it a coincidence thing" a bit far, but it has proven to lead down many roads I would not have taken. I've established the geraniums leafing out after my mother yelled at them was not a coincidence. However, there is another, more pressing questions that needs addressed now that I have come upon the Findhorn Secret. Are we dealing with aliens or devas? Or doesn't it matter?

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      This is what I play constantly:

      I open the doors and windows on days like today and let the music soar!

    • Highvoltagewriter profile image

      William Benner 6 years ago from Savannah GA.

      I have always felt that plants have the ability to communicate with humans on some level. In fact there has been a lot of research regarding music and plants. Even rock music seems to stimulate the plants into growing better. Both the Native Americans and Druid's had many rituals concerning the care of plants the believed magical. Great hub, I will read more!

    • kittythedreamer profile image

      Nicole Canfield 6 years ago from Summerland

      As I was reading the section about your connection with gardens and butterflies and bees...I'm sitting in my office (I should be working, I know) and a wasp is literally tapping on the glass door in front of my he's trying to get in to tell me something...coincidence? Never! Loved this story, thanks so much for sharing with us. I was never abused as a child per se, but I was most definitely neglected...often taking care of myself and my brother on my own as a child. I don't know if that contributes to psychism but I've always sort of known or have been aware of things that other adults weren't aware of. :)

      Your welcome Lilleyth. You shouldn't feel uneasy in the garden, all is as it should be there. In one experiment where a plant was hooked up to sensors, when the lawn man began trimming bushes outside a very noticeable reaction was recorded from the plant; and when he walked into the room later on the sensors went completely wild.

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      I think I'm getting a little creeped out about going outside in the garden...Alastar, thank you for reading and sharing your opinion.

    • Alastar Packer profile image

      Alastar Packer 6 years ago from North Carolina

      My gosh this is really something with the Garden Devas and Findhorn Garden! Always something new to discover. After reading I believe it was meant for you to see Lilleyth. Although it's not well known anyone who does any serious reading on the subject or even related topics should know plants are on a certain level of creation that can respond to human thoughts and actions.

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Yes, it is a miracle. Of course, as I said, the Library Angel showed up in the form of Sandra who reminded me about and Maechelle Wright's story about how she speaks to garden devas.

      Hi, I just sat and watched the video, isn't it lovely? this brings back so many memories as I have talked to plants ever since reading the book, I had forgotten about Findhorn for a while so it was nice to see how it was doing now.

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Hey Nell, thank you so much for stopping by, I was hoping you would because I value your opinion and enjoy your observations and comments, and your own stories. I guess I'm supposed to be hunting for fairies or something, not quite sure. Lol. I never know what's coming, never a dull moment. So many coincidences today too. The Library Angel is sitting at my side and between the tv and the Internet I've had quite a day of it.

    • Nell Rose profile image

      Nell Rose 6 years ago from England

      Hi, I saw the title of your hub and had to come and take a look. I have the book on Findhorn, in fact I have had it for twenty something years! its just one of those books that I can't give away or throw in the bin. I loved your story, I can just imagine your mom yelling at the plants! I talk to my plant that's on the kitchen window ledge, it's a colleus, and I have had it since 2003, I took it from work when I was made redundant as a guy at work had given it to me, I chat to it all the time when watering it, and its got so big its nearly taken up the whole window ledge! lol! so yes I totally believe, voted up all the way!

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Ha! Ha! Thank you robie2. I'm sure it wasn't the first time they heard her yell...but it sure made them sit up and get a move on. You can almost hear them thinking: "push! push! push those leaves out!" Which means, I must add to my story that it wasn't just one plant! It was several. Oh my. Now that is remarkable isn't it! All of them leafed out at the same time.

    • robie2 profile image

      Roberta Kyle 6 years ago from Central New Jersey

      I love this Lilleyth. I'm familiar with Findhorne and the story of how they got started and I too am one who knows that there are no coincidences so it was a real pleasure to read your story and to chuckle at the geraniums' response to your mother's shouting. Oh,did I mention that I also talk to my houseplants? I usually don't yell thnough-- I'm into telling them how beautiful they are and how I enjoy having them around. They seem to like it:-)

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Now that I think about it, I did notice a bird in my garden that, according to my Bird List, I had not seen since the 80's, when I lived in Raleigh. It was a Towhee. Now I'm off to see if there is any symbolism about that...ta ta!

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Thank you for your insight. Yes, my mother is a pip, an Aries on steroids. Since Kittythedreamer has told me to look for fairies, Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance mentions "Be prepared to see beyond the immediate into higher dimensions, higher realms, and open to the ways of the Spirit" I have to believe I'm being told to either spend more time in my garden, or what? Then Sandra reminds me of Perelandra, which I had totally forgotten about until she mentioned it...Gardens again, devas in the garden again.

      Helen Murphy Howell 6 years ago from Fife, Scotland

      Lilleyth, this is an awesome hub and I honestly think your experience is more than just coincidence.

      When we are getting messages or being led in a certain direction, we often experience synchronicity. This is meaningful happenings, that, although at first sight seem just to be coincidence, is actually a message of sorts. The fact that you've written a hub and asking people for their input about your experience, I think means you've already know that something special is going on.

      I loved the account about your Mum and the geraniums!!LOL!

      Over all a beautiful, fascinating and awesome hub!

    • Lilleyth profile image

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Thank you Sandra. Yes, now that you mention it I do recall that amazing story. Thank you for reminding me, I had totally forgotten about it! Which, by the way, is another way The Library Angel works...

      Sandra Busby 6 years ago from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA

      Suzanne Sheffield 6 years ago from Mid-Atlantic

      Thank you so much, I wrote it pretty quickly. I still have chills Marsei. When I looked up from the computer and turned my attention to the television and realized they were talking about Findhorn it just blew me away. Recently Kittythedreamer told me I had fairies in my garden that she saw in my photos, and I replied that I was going to start paying more attention. It is like I'm getting a "nudge" from somewhere that is saying: "yes, go look in the garden!"

    • Marsei profile image

      Sue Pratt 6 years ago from New Orleans

      I thoroughly enjoyed this hub, Lilyeth. It's beautifully written as all your work is and I too had chills when you said you saw Caddy's face. No, not a coincidence. I believe it's one of those moments when Spirit is encouraging us, giving us that nudge. In this case, I think it was meant that publish your story. You may never know why or exactly who it touched, but I definitely believe there was a reason it should be written and I'm so glad you did it. It was lovely to read.
