Founder of Wild Moon Rising
Lamya grew up studying creative writing and performance art in Chicago. She earned a degree in speech communication and theater in New Orleans and went on to work in the film industry in Los Angeles. From the fantastic world of Hollywood to the disciplined structure of the medical field, she earned her second degree in Cardiovascular Sonography. Her curiosities and discoveries about modern medicine and technology propelled her further into her already established holistic lifestyle. Becoming a vessel for a new life caused her spirit to evolve substantially, strengthening her relationship with Mama Earth. Since giving birth to her daughter, Luna, she dove deeper into the sacred feminine, discovered how to re-wild her spirit, grow young, wander with confidence, nourish her mind and body with even more organic foods and wellness activities, and honor her ancestors. These practices created space for striving to become a paradigm of supreme balance and consciousness. She currently lives in Atlanta with her husband, daughter, and another little divine being on the way! She conjures much of her inspiration from her daughter, her culture and heritage, and the vibrant, natural surroundings to cultivate a tranquil and magical way of life.

For some time, after I had my daughter, Langston Blue, I removed myself from social media, for reasons that I thought were healthy, and yes, for some time it was. However, I know that I was isolating myself from a world that seemed to be overwhelming for a new mom. In my season of detachment, I also became more aware of the natural attachment I had with my daughter, partner, nature, the universe, and myself. I have been able to reconnect with what matters with healing experiences and powerful lessons that have retaught me to see the divine light in myself. I am Marcia Ivy, and I have stories and experiences that matter to women just like you. I intend for my raw, and informative guest feature posts to inspire other women to connect, spark their curiosities, and get comfortable with acknowledging their own light. I am a human, lover, black woman, millennial, friend, healer, sister, dreamer, teacher, daughter, baker, and a creative, and I will not limit myself or the work I share with you on any of those things. I was blessed with the job of inspiration.
