Silver Birch was a spirit guide who spoke through Maurice Barbanell (1902-1981) , founder and editor of the Psychic News of London, England. He was one of the influential spiritual commentators of the mid-20th Century who drew our attention to the coming of a miraculous “New World.”
Word of Silver Birch’s teachings first began to circulate in the late 1930s and, within forty years, nine books of his teachings had been issued, circulating widely in the Anglophone world.
The group was known as Hannen Swaffen’s Circle to keep Barbanell’s name a secret. It met monthly for four decades in a small flat in a pleasant part of London.
Although “Silver Birch” spoke through a North American Indian vehicle on the other side, the higher spirit who sourced his message was not an Indian.
Of himself, Silver Birch would give few details. He imposed upon himself the burden of anonymity “so that I would make no appeal of illustrious personage, title, rank, or fame, but would be judged on what I said and what I did.
His last lifetime occurred around 3,000 years earlier, during which lifetime he venerated many gods. He had to learn in the spirit world that “there is only one Great Spirit, Who has provided eternal laws for the control of every phase of life throughout the boundless universe.”
