In this fascinating dialogue, two bestselling authors and leading aficionados of life’s spiritual dimension discuss the major questions at the heart of their latest respective books and personal journeys – from the nature of reality and the spirit world, to the limits of science and the infiniteness of consciousness
- Is there a battle between Good and Evil?
- Do we only see a fraction of reality?
- Do Angels walk amongst us all the time and what would it take to see them?
- Why are some people drawn to the Dark side?
- How much do the daily choices we make affect the positive future of the universe?
Graham Hancock – investigator of ancient mysteries and author of Supernatural: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind, Entangled: The Eater of Souls and several No.1 non-fiction bestsellers – is renowned worldwide for his unorthodox examination of ancient cultures, sacred traditions and contemporary shamanism. Increasingly iconic following US media giant TED’s recent vetoing of his TEDx talk The War on Consciousness, Graham’s latest bestselling supernatural adventure novel War God tells the story of the Spanish conquest of Mexico and explores the powerful demonic forces behind this gargantuan clash of civilisations which was to wreak terror and destruction in the land of the Aztecs.
Lorna Byrne is an Irish widowed mother of four who sees angels everywhere among us as clearly as ordinary folk see people. Publically coming out as an Angel Seer with the release of her first book Angels in My Hair in 2008, she has now authored three international bestsellers and leads the way in the booming “angelic encounter” genre of non-fiction. Her latest Sunday Times Bestseller, A Message of Hope from the Angels shares her comforting message that we all have angels to support us in the face of life’s challenges whose messages can help us lead happier, more fulfilled lives.
The exciting Youtube dialogue between the two authors explores the ongoing spiritual warfare at play between the forces of good and evil, the presence and purpose of guardian angels in our lives, and a whole gamut of big spiritual life issues – from working with angels and protecting ourselves from demonic entities, to the importance of our everyday life choices and their implications for us in this life and beyond.
Also discussed is the threat posed by reductionist science for limiting our potential for spiritual experience, as well as the dangers posed by science, technology and genetic engineering to the preservation of our souls, and the power of the internet for global awakening, discovering our interconnectedness and uniting all races.
Central to the conversation is the influence of angels and demons on human affairs. While angels have a positive influence – bearing for Lorna “messages of hope” – both Graham and Lorna agree that negative supernatural entities can often masquerade as God duping humans into undertaking wicked acts in his name, as portrayed by Graham in War God where the two sparring leaders are in daily contact with the same demon – appearing to Cortes as St Peter and to Moctezuma as the deity Huitzilpochtil – stoking the flames of conflict between the Spanish and the Aztecs.
During the dialogue, Lorna says she sees demons amongst us, just as she sees angels, but God protects her from these demons. “The dark side knows it’s out of bounds with me, its wasting its time, but it doesn’t mean they don’t try,” she says.
Despite their shared sense of prevalent evil in the world, both authors are hopeful that “Good will win in the end”, expressing their faith in a bright younger generation all around the world awakening to living more consciously and harmoniously, in unity – undivided by religion or race – empowered by the global communications of the internet.
Lorna Byrne says: “This is one of the futures I have been shown, that we become one race… We are all brothers and sisters, we need to reach out and touch each other. And we can’t give up on each other. We can’t say, ‘Just because that’s over in that country and I’m here and I’m fine, I’ll do nothing about it’. What are the children of the future going to say? ‘Why did you do nothing?’ “
Graham Hancock concludes: “That’s our responsibility – not to stand by and do nothing, but to be actively involved and make active choices for the good. For the light. And to build this community of hope.”
