All children are born with the ability to see Angels, but most of us lose that ability by the time we go to school. Lorna Byrne, however, never lost the ability, and continues to communicate with all of our Angels for the benefit of everyone. We caught up with her as she touched down on her way home from signing a major publishing deal with Doubleday (The Da Vinci Code) for the international release of her debut book “Angels in my Hair”.
Patrick: Does everybody on the planet have a Guardian Angel?
Lorna: No doubt. I have never seen a human being, man, woman, or child, at all in my life, not having a Guardian Angel. Even a person who would say they have no religion or they don’t believe in God at all, they have a Guardian Angel. It doesn’t make any difference what religion you are, God is right there inside of you. That is what your soul is, and that’s the part of you that doesn’t die. That’s the part of you that has a conscious mind, and that’s what you take with you when you die.
Patrick: What happens when you die?
Lorna: You don’t actually die. You live forever, it is only your body that dies, but humanly that is very hard for a mother or father or brother or sister or aunt or uncle to accept. We have such emotions because we love who had died, but sometimes we are happy that someone has died, and we know that they are physically not suffering anymore. But you can be sure they’re still alive.
Patrick: So, what does happen to the soul when it leaves the body?
Lorna: It goes to the place we call Heaven. I don’t know exactly where it is, but I have been there a few times. It’s hard to explain. You know the way even when someone dies, sometimes the soul comes back to help someone? Well, even when they come back to our world, they’re actually still in Heaven.
Patrick: Are you talking about coming back in a non-physical form or in another physical body?
Lorna: In a non-physical form. It’s when the soul comes back as a soul. Somebody might say, I could feel my Grandmother with me, or my child beside me helping me through the loneliness.
Patrick: Do those souls ever come back into another physical body, like the idea of reincarnation?
Lorna: Yes, but I have to smile, I don’t believe as often as we would like to believe, because you have to remember Heaven is a place where when a soul goes there, it really doesn’t want to leave, but it has to. So, every time one dies one doesn’t come back straight away. But people do come back at particular times for reasons that maybe you or I would say, “But why for that reason?” It’s not as simple or as clear cut as we would like and we can’t tell God and the Angels what we think should be and we can’t tell them what to do or what to say beyond all of that. I have to laugh when someone says that to me, you know, you just can’t.
Patrick: Is there a balance between what Humans can control and what God and the Angels control?
Lorna: There is a balance, and I think that humanly we are given most of the balance in order for us to live our life, and in order for all religions to have that choice. We have been given our Guardian Angel as a gift, plus we have been given this Earth which is a living planet. It’s living as well, and it’s a gift, and so is the Universe around us, but before we leave we have to learn how to be kinder and nicer to each other, how to look after our planet. We are all connected. That is why it’s so important that each person plays their part. That’s why everybody is special, no matter what they do. Whether you’re a sweeper sweeping the street, or you’re a teacher, or you’re a businessman, we can’t manage and survive without each other. So we have to let go and realise that material things we all need, but we don’t need the amount that we’re grasping, and we need to share more, and we need to look after this beautiful planet that’s doing it’s best to look after us.
