Twin Souls Book Review: Message of Hope for New Millennium

When I first heard about the book, Twin Souls: A Message of Hope for the New Millennium, by Elizabeth Anne Hill with Catherine Mary Hill, I expected it to be one of those typical memoirs where someone loses a close family member and comes through the grieving process with a new perspective. In truth, that is only a very small part of Twin Souls.

Life After Death

Elizabeth (“Betsy”) and Catherine (“Cathy”) were identical twins, but their similarities pretty much ended with their appearance. They were opposites throughout their lives and argued about almost everything, including religion and politics. But then, on October 25, 2002, Elizabeth received the devastating news that Cathy, a United States Border Patrol Agent, had been killed when her Jeep rolled over while she was on patrol.

Despite their differences, Elizabeth was distraught. But, in time, Elizabeth realized that her sister wasn’t really gone. Her body was no longer there, but her spirit was still very much alive — and able to communicate with her twin sister. With Cathy’s death, a new life began for Elizabeth.

Cathy had been on a spiritual journey before her passing, and she began to show Elizabeth the same path. Through Cathy’s promptings, Elizabeth was led to just the right people, places, books and experiences that would ignite a fire within her to seek out the answers to so many of the questions that plague humankind. Do we really die? Does God exist? What does the future hold for our species? Why are so many religions at odds with each other? Elizabeth knew that her sister was guiding her to find the answers to these questions and share them with the world.

Twin Souls is the story of the Hill sisters, but it is also, as the subtitle indicates, “a message of hope for the new millennium.” Chapters include (but are not limited to):

  • Unity and Universal Truth (meditation, the spiritual eye and reincarnation)
  • Man-Made Religion (original sin, hell and the devil)
  • Man-Made Armageddon (overpopulation, poverty and the environment)
  • The Bible-Old Misunderstandings, New Insights (the Holy Trinity, Jews vs. Christians, the Ten Commandments, Creation vs. Evolution)
  • The Master of Galilee (the lost years of Jesus, who Jesus was and his purpose)
  • The World’s Teachers (the Ascended and Unascended Masters)
  • The World’s Messengers (our higher and lower selves, mediums and psychics)
  • Heavenly Helpers (spirit guides and angels)
  • And much more!

Other chapters in this in-depth book examine The Law of Attraction, science and spirituality, politics and ancient wisdom. No spiritual stone is left unturned.

Final Consideration

You may not agree with everything you read in this book, but my gut feeling is that’s okay with Elizabeth Hill. She knew she had a big task ahead of her when Cathy persuaded her to write Twin Souls. What this book will do is challenge your thinking and spur you to seek answers to the questions that have perplexed our planet and its people for a very long time. As Elizabeth notes, “our planet is at a crossroads” and “each person will contribute to the transformation by changing their own views about the world.” If you allow it, Twin Souls will send you on a quest for your own life’s purpose and convince you that there is hope for our troubled world.
