Is it possible that autistic people see angels? Or is it possible that autistic people are incarnated angels?
My name is Gayle Barkley Lee. Like many of you, I am a parent. While I was pregnant with my daughter I had many of the same dreams you perhaps had or will have. My dreams however, were swiftly changed after my daughter was born and I soon learned she was not perceived as “normal.” As an infant, her medical file grew from a rash of medical tests offering premature diagnoses: cerebral palsy, mental retardation and deafness. Sadly, after a family friend, who was a physician reviewed my daughter’s file, he recommended institutionalizing her. In hindsight, perhaps this was the best advice I ever received – because at that moment I vowed to dedicate my life to prove him wrong … and I have.
My daughter is Lyrica Mia Marquez. Lyrica was later officially diagnosed with severe autism and we were given little hope that she would ever live a meaningful and productive life.
Today, Lyrica is 35 years’ old. She’s a brilliant writer, a gifted artist, my best friend, an enlightened being and my teacher.
It was only five years ago when I learned I was on the autistic spectrum, with Asperger Syndrome.
Welcome to the Angels Seen in Autism Blog where I’ll share insights which will shatter the traditional view of autism. I’ll explore a new paradigm, one which offers hope to those diagnosed with autism. I’ll share insights which reveal that many autistic people are walking this planet with a divine purpose – one which impacts all humanity – and offers a key to the spiritual shift now taking place on our planet. I’ll also show that autistic people not only commune with angels, but they are angels.
Now that I’ve introduced “us,” feel free to introduce yourself and share your experiences about autism or spirituality. Of course we always welcome thoughts on our new book, AWEtizm, A Hidden Key to Our Spiritual Magnificence.
Big promises … stay tuned and soul blessings.
