498. Feeling Comfortable in Her Own Skin
As a child, Lisa could see angels. Not until years later did she learn generations of her family members shared similar gifts. In fact, her father had learned to harness his own gifts to rise through the ranks of a major corporation. Could she accept and use her gifts in adulthood and the workplace?

How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
As a child, Lisa’s supportive parents allowed her to accept and explore her special abilities—which included seeing and talking to angels—without making her feel like an outsider. “They didn’t say don’t tell anybody you can do this, or don’t talk about it. I think that opened the door for me to be able to go wherever I wanted to go with that dimension of myself. My parents were very good about helping me feel comfortable in my own skin.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
As her friends would come to her for advice and help with their problems, Lisa didn’t consider this unusual. To her, it just felt like she was sharing her common sense. “When I grew up and found that everybody didn’t see and experience the same things, I felt even better about it. I thought, why am I so lucky? Why am I the one that gets to see and feel this way?” Later, she would see her special sensitivities as “a sense of knowing.”
The Most Powerful Lesson Learned?
Writing and gaining the confidence to speak in front of groups helped Lisa learn to trust her opinions and view of life. “It taught me to keep writing and expressing myself in my conversations with people, and how not to be afraid to have an opinion that is different from everybody else. I didn’t feel I had to go with the flow. I could have my own opinion and that would be okay.”
