Angels in My Hair

angels

Has anyone read this book?

I’ve read it and re-read it, and recommended it to others multiple times.

You may see “angels” in the title and think, nope, that’s not for me.

But, even if you don’t believe in mythical angels, I think this book holds something for you.  I think it holds something for everyone, no matter what you believe.

Lorna Byrne tells her story here for the first time.  She explains that she’s been seeing and talking to angels since she was a child.  In fact, she didn’t know for some time that everyone else did not talk to angels on a regular basis!

She grew up in Ireland in a Catholic family.  She’s a Christian, but she states pretty clearly that the angels who walk among us don’t care what faith you practice or what you believe.  They are also not deterred by complete non-belief.  According to Lorna, even if you are an atheist, you’ve still got a guardian angel!

So why do I like this book so much?

The concept of having a guardian angel is very comforting to me.  Who wouldn’t want someone looking out for them 24-7?  This idea also gets to the concept that there may be things in our world that we don’t understand.  Things like deja vu or synchronicity, or a unexpected turn of luck.

Ever been thinking about a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while, when suddenly they call or email you out of the blue?  Ever cross paths with someone for the first time and feel like you’ve known them forever?

There are plenty of things that happen during our lives that seem a little other worldly because we can’t explain them, but they do happen.  Lorna would say the angels are behind it.  Now I’ve never seen or spoken to an angel, so I’m going to have to take her word for it.  I also think it just might me putting energy or thoughts into the world, and the effects eventually find their way back to me.  Maybe it’s just a trick of the brain or some higher level physics of energy, but I’ll never know.

What I do know is that we are all connected on some level.  We may try to deny it, and think of ourselves as complete individuals. However, each of us influences other people through words and actions, and in turn, we learn and are influenced by those in our lives.  Maybe it’s those invisible connections that make things happen?

So I like this book because it got me thinking about things beyond my physical world, about how people are all connected at some level, and if you really embrace these ideas it can make you a better person.

How?  Well if you think what you do effects others, you may be more careful in your daily life.  Think the angels or some otherworldly power is keeping tabs on us?  Let’s try to be on our best behavior.

I really like that Lorna says we shouldn’t be so worried about religion, but rather, be thinking of others in the human family.  We don’t need to fight over the things that divide us, we just need to get better at seeing what we have in common.  And, maybe, just maybe, we’ve got some mythical beings waiting nearby to keep us on the right path and help us get where we’re going.

Sounds pretty good to me!
