Lorna Byrne

Spiritual teacher, international bestselling author and philanthropist Lorna Byrne has dedicated her life to remind humanity of the spiritual potential within us all. She is the author of seven best-selling books, including Angels in My Hair, A Message of Hope From the Angels, and Angels at my Fingertips and she has been published in more than 50 countries and 30 languages around the world.

Her teachings are the result of a remarkable gift, a divine connection providing her with incredible, detailed knowledge of the spiritual side of life. Unlike others this gift is not from meditation, visualisation or even from books or study, it exists as a natural part of her waking life. Lorna says we all have this potential, and it is part of humanity’s evolution for people to connect back to their spiritual self so the body and soul intertwines. She travels the world extensively to hand down the spiritual knowledge she has been taught over the course of her lifetime.

Lorna’s vision of the future is one where there is no division or boundaries between people. Where our spiritual side is accepted and transcends all beliefs. To accept we are all one. To live in peace with each other and nature, our home. According to Lorna, the future is dependent on this spiritual evolution.

She has been featured extensively in worldwide television, radio and print media including CNN, NBC Today, BBC, The London Times, The Economist, ITV, and many others.

Lorna is also a philanthropist and founder of the Lorna Byrne Children’s Foundation helping vulnerable and marginalised children across the globe and the Seraph Foundation which is developing Sanctuary her centre in County Kilkenny Ireland so people of all walks of life, all beliefs and none can come together and grow spiritually. To this day, large numbers of women, men and young people contact Lorna to say her teachings gave them back hope in their lives.

In 2019, she was named as one of the 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People in the World.

To this day she maintains this gift from God is not about her. It is for you.


Angels in my hair

Angels in my Hair is an engrossing chronicle of Lorna’s incredible life story. Invoking a wonderful sense of place, she describes growing up poor in Ireland, finding work in Dublin, and marrying the man of her dreams – only to have the marriage cut short by tragedy. Her story gives readers a unique insight into the angelic help that is around us and available to us all the time. As Lorna says, “All you have to do is ask.”


Angels at My Fingertips takes us back to the territory that made Angels in My Hair a million selling, international bestseller. Stories of Lorna’s early life in rural Ireland, of how angels helped and guided her through traumatic events, lead to a detailed description of what angels are like, the different types of angels, how they behave in interact with God and other angels as well as human beings, their role during our lives and after death. Angels at My Fingertips also contains an account of how Joe, her husband, who died young in Angels in My Hair returns to visit her. For the first time Lorna reveals the role of the souls of our loved ones who may return from heaven briefly to help and guide us. Information as detailed as this never been published anywhere before now.


In Stairways to Heaven she tells the story of how she pulled her life back together and how she, an uneducated mother of four, broke her silence and started to spread the angels’ message to the world. Lorna tells us of the future that God envisages for us – and some possible other futures, depending on the decisions we make. ”Everyone must play their part”, she says.


SUNDAY TIMES #1 BESTSELLER Message of Hope from the Angels, Lorna gives us the comfort of knowing that we have guardian angels to support us during our daily challenges, and reveals how we can call on their help to carry us through the difficulties that we all inevitably face — whether it’s loneliness, depression, stress, financial strain or countless other challenges.

  • Since recorded history, certain individuals have sensed, seen, and conversed with angelic presences. Since we are appallingly ignorant about the nature of consciousness, it is premature to dismiss these reports as fantasies, which is too often done. Lorna Byrne’s Angels in my Hair is captivating. It is both a challenge to skeptics and an inspiration to those whose experiences confirm transcendental realities.

  • Of course, it sounds barking, doesn’t it? Seeing Angels? .. The first point that must be made about Byrne is how credible she is – no matter how incredible her story…One can simply read the book and wonder
    Publishing News
  • What Lorna has to say is of universal significance to all of humankind. I have made study of many mystics and spiritual schools of thought over the past forty years, and can say without hesitation that Lorna is a genuine visionary. The message she brings to suffering humanity offers a rare degree of hope and light, in a world that often seems very dark. We are a race with amnesia, and she is helping to restore to us our memory of who we are and why we are here.
