Alisha Lehman is an American User Experience (UX) Design Manager living in Dusseldorf, Germany with her husband and daughter. She is a self-made professional with 25+ years of UX design experience and her focus today is mainly on UX strategy for one of the largest telecommunications companies in Germany.
In this interview, Alisha talks about her struggles early on in life and how this affected her belief systems. She shares her journey of how she became the confident woman she is today – she is an advocate for doing what she wants and and making things happen.
Alisha’s life was dramatically changed in June 2021 after she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Two weeks prior to the diagnosis, she had discovered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now. The combination of the teachings in the book and her belief that death was imminent had a transformative effect, which catapulted her into a profound shift in consciousness.
She was inspired by the book’s message of staying anchored in the present and not dwelling on the past and future. This helped her to focus on the NOW and in the moment. She believes that the cancer was an awakening event for her to accept and surrender to the NOW. Alisha has made a full recovery and today she is now more peaceful, more easy-going, and more rooted in the NOW.
With this newfound awareness of the “Eternal Self”, Alisha now aims to bring love and light into all corners of her life, privately as well as professionally. Alisha wants us all to believe in ourselves, stay in the NOW, and live life fearlessly.
