Early in our conversation with Lorna, she mentions ‘unemployed angels’, so we have to ask her more about what this means!
“Unemployed angels are angels that God has been pouring down onto the earth, I always say in bucketfuls. They’re there to help us with all the everyday, ordinary things. And once you ask for help, you are given it. For people reading this, I would say ask for an unemployed angel to come into your life or a friend’s or to come into the family to give you a hand. Many a time I’d see an unemployed angel giving an elderly person a helping hand and sometimes I would talk to the unemployed angel and ask if the elderly person knows they’re there, and they’d tell me “Lorna just look at their face” and just then a big smile would appear on their face.”
We are pure love.
“Each and every one of us, because of our soul, we are pure love. And it’s still all there inside of you, no matter what pain or hurt you’ve gone through, it’s still there, you can’t dilute it or throw it away, it can’t really be destroyed, we just have this habit of locking it away. The more you can learn to love yourself, then you can love others. Love is love and yet we put all kinds of labels on it. If you only look for romantic love, you miss out on all the love that is already in your life and all around you.” She tells us that even a kind gesture towards someone can help them unlock that love a little bit more. “It’s so important for us to be kind.”
The first time she saw love as a physical force was at home in her family between her two parents and she described what it looked like…
“We were having a feast, we had a cake, this beautiful cake my aunt had brought to us. And the angels told me to pay attention, and seeing the love coming from my mum and da and it meeting and it being crystal clear. The only way I can describe it, it’s like ice in one sense, the way ice sparkles, but yet it’s soft and it’s warm.”
Is there a recent incident of seeing that physical force of love that you could tell us about?
“There is one very close to my own heart. My mum was dying recently and just sitting at the end of the bed and watching all my own siblings come around the bed and they all taking hands and just seeing all of that physical force of love, crystal clear, coming from them, from every part of them, from their soul and it touching my mum. She wasn’t able to give it back at that stage but they were giving theirs to her.”
The Seven Day Process
Each day there’s stuff I’ve written to help you, the first day is to tell you that you are pure love. And then there’s a card to carry with you in your purse each day to remind you of that. And there’s another day to remind you that you are deserving of love and there’s a few exercises in it as well. And I know it will stir up emotions, but emotions are actually love and it is a process.” She says since adding the seven day process to the book, people have already begun to thank her for how it’s changed their lives, and how they feel about themselves.
