There IS Magic In You

Screen Shot 2019-03-08 at 3.57.15 PM.png

I was lovingly accused of possessing magical abilities over the holiday and Cliff and I have been unpacking the conversation. What was only a momentary remark has become a beautiful vessel for clarity. Here's where I've landed:

Many (if not most) humans are living in a five sensory experience. In a nut shell I guide myself and others from the sixth-sense, that place of intuition in your heart space. I listen to messages from my soul and my Higher Self. I get really quiet and ask sincerely to see the unseen, to experience alignment of what has become misaligned, to understand what I need to know right now for my highest good. This is a practice. It may seem magical to some but to me it is a skill that we uncover when we follow our intuition. And it is a power that we all share.

I take full credit for answering the call. It was a conscious decision and a choice I continue to make. And if you're here reading this perhaps YOU are being guided to tune and hone your intuition.

Here's one way to begin. Get curious about your emotions and why things are impacting you. Trace your reactions back to their origin. Learn how to let energy move through and out of your body. And if you find yourself in a toxic place (physically, emotionally or spiritually) learn how to identify what has become blocked inside. Removing blocks = eliminating toxicity.

I use meditation, breath, visualization, detoxifying foods, changed beliefs, clear intentions and verbal processing to remove blockages and invite lightness. And certainly some of the things I've seen have felt like straight up magic but I know the truth is they were willing to do the work to move energy and clean up the home of their soul (aka the body). I believe intuition is connection. I believe when we become aware of non-physical reality we come into our own ---- and happiness or job satisfaction or having a love in your life or whatever you desire is no longer such an elusive thing.

Naked Truth

Hi! I'm Lacy. Well, actually if I'm being honest ----- I am infinite awareness having an experience which is currently called Lacy Young. And you are that too just with your name.
.
Someone asked me recently why my IG was named @lacylike. Lacylike was born over a decade ago when I was learning how to claim who I was as an individual. I was breaking free from what I thought I needed to be or should be and was pledging to be like no one else... truly and simply lacylike.
.
My work is about shifting perspectives, embracing self growth and remembering that we are infinite awareness. I help others to move obstacles, unpack situations and deeply see themselves so they may live a life that feels authentic and aligned. Boiled down... if we are meant to work together in this life get ready for serious change!
.
I believe in celebrating ourselves and each other. I am a master space holder, devoted listener and I create loving transformational experiences through Shift Retreats, Soul Care and guided mediations. My meditations will almost always ask you to use your imagination in some way. I believe imagination is a tool for remembering, a tool for healing, a tool of the soul.
.
I see the possibilities of YOU. And the truth is there's some stuff you've been holding on to that you simply no longer need. I'll give you permission and tools to let it go. And when you've done the work of letting go we'll move into activation and connecting to your wisdom voice.
.
Shift Retreat for May of next year in FRANCE is enrolling now! I would love to be your ally as you expand your energy and open to receiving the goodness that life has in store for you. See the details at LacyYoung.com/shift-retreat #lacyyoungretreats #shiftwithlacy
.
PS. This is the most real me photo I have lately. I am the girl who will scrub up head-to-toe and run naked into the wilderness (with my phone of course ๐Ÿ˜œ)to do a meaningful ritual.

Unapologetically You.

I believe that when you summon the courage to be who you are in this world fully and without apology your light becomes so bright that it gives others permission to radiate from within too. Remember all you need literally is within.
.
Notice when you start to look outside of yourself with more frequency and pause. It may be time to ask a new question, look a new direction or change course entirely.
.
Trust yourself and the process. Know that you can teach right from where you are with great love anytime. You already know enough, you already have enough, you already are enough (and always have been).
.
If you needed a reminder consider this it. Keep going! You're doing it!
.
I love you. 

Moments Of Clarity

Screen Shot 2019-03-08 at 3.28.47 PM.png

โ€œWhen youโ€™re living on purpose thereโ€™s nothing too small.โ€ Words my sister Kayla said to me that remind me how important it is to pay attention to moments of clarity!
.
Had a major moment yesterday, standing in the stream that runs through the land we call home.
.
Water always brings me back to myself and this day Iโ€™d just completed a breathwork session that helped me move so much energy, emotion, tears and laughter.
.
Thereโ€™s something so satisfying about doing the work in a meditation or breathwork session - it feels measurable and some days I just need to feel like Iโ€™ve shown up for myself in a concrete way. You know?

Three things:
1. Everyone meditates in their garden to thank Mother Earth for the bounty to come, right?
.
This is me sitting in the cover crop that was amending the soil. I told Cliff I was going to meditate and when I opened my eyes he was there (heโ€™s well trained). This is my help me up outta here, Iโ€™m covered in teeny tiny bugs and definitely starting to itch face!
.
2. I have a client whoโ€™s the best note taker Iโ€™ve ever met and she is currently embracing releasing striving energy. She wrote down something I said to her on our call and it is a beautiful reminder for all of us... You don't have to figure anything out. The feeling that you do is part of the old you that is slowly being stripped away....there's nothing to figure, there's only listening, and then taking inspired action when you know you must. You go into a level of surrendered divine obedience.

Learning IS The New Adventure

Screen Shot 2019-03-08 at 5.05.02 PM.png

Always embrace a proper adventure!
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
Adventure is one of the easiest ways I know to practice leaning into the unknown with excitement. The more you practice embracing the unknown the easier it is to create more of the qualities and experiences you want in your life.
๐ŸŽ‰
Why? Because it can get so much better than you can even imagine! Why limit yourself living in the known all the time? Trust. Go. See. Listen. Allow yourself to be moved by new experiences.

Love From Me To You

Screen Shot 2019-03-08 at 5.08.49 PM.png

Yesterday I sent a newsletter with a love letter to my people, thoughts on social media and what I know about myself that I want to share with you here too.
๐Ÿค—
If you're not receiving my love letters and youโ€™d like to please join me there via http://bit.ly/tellmelacy
๐Ÿ’š
Here's what I know. I am a spiritual teacher, I have things to share and I want to do this work with you. What I really want you to know is that sometimes I just want to grab each and every one of you and take you by the hand, look you in the eyes and tell you genuinely and sweetly that I can help. Really truly, I can help and if you believe that too and you're feeling that too come knock on my virtual door and lets sit down together.
๐Ÿ‘ญ
You are wonderful and I love you. 

Mountains Do Move

Screen Shot 2019-03-08 at 5.14.22 PM.png

The truth is - you have the power to move mountains and create worlds within you.
โ›ฐ
Sometimes itโ€™s a trip to a new place, a meditation class or a coach like me that helps to remind you of that truth. It doesnโ€™t matter how you reconnect with your true self, only that you do.
๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ
Make your Shift in person or with help in your own sanctuary. NOW is the time to say yes to your Shift! โœจ

It's Meditation Time ... And These Ones Are FREE

Screen Shot 2019-03-08 at 5.50.49 PM.png

Fruit trees have always represented abundance to me. Is it time to invite more abundance into your life? ๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ
I have a buncha free meditations over on SoundCloud just waiting for you. I recently received an incredible email about one in particular...

"Hi Lacy,

I just completed 30 days of the water visualization for inviting abundance. Wow. Just wow. When I started it and for many months before, I was feeling SUPER stressed about money. I was worrying all the time about it. I feel such a sense of peace now. I have a deep knowing that I never have to worry - ever again. It's so freeing. Abundance has shown up in my life in ways I never could've articulated. Today, in my meditation, I laid down on top of the tube and could feel the vibration of the rushing water. It was so beautiful. 
I just wanted to say thank you for providing this resource. It's made a massive shift in my life and I am deeply grateful."

Choose a meditation, give yourself a goal (a week, a month, more) and listen daily. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผsoundcloud.com/lacyyoung๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฝ

#Truth

Screen Shot 2019-03-08 at 12.23.16 PM.png


I overheard a conversation recently that went like this:

Person 1
โ€œ... anyway thatโ€™s my truth...โ€ Person 2
โ€œSeriously? Your truth is terrifying!โ€ I watched their body language and the confusion that washed over them both as the conversation escalated.
โœจ
If one persons truth causes fear in other it is not Truth. It may be their experience and that is never to be diminished but itโ€™s not the big T, Truth.
โœจ
And beyond that what if truth does not matter? What if it is just... truth. What if there was only fear or love and everything in between was noise? And what if every experience is inching us all closer to love, even through moments of extreme contrast?
โœจ
Point is- stay open, nurture your curiosity, ask questions, challenge your beliefs and continue to calibrate to what feels most loving to you. Itโ€™s up to you if you want to call it your truth or not.
โœจ
Ps. I came upon this swing not long after contemplating what truth means to me. The Universe has an undeniable sense of humor. Naturally I took her up on the offer and became truth in motion for a little while.

Lets Meditate Together

Screen Shot 2019-03-08 at 5.18.00 PM.png

I've loaded a new meditation to Soundcloud for anyone who is suffering over skin eruptions or anyone who would like to invite healthier, happier and more balanced skin.
.
I'm still negotiating rosacea (ugh!) so this meditation is one I recorded for myself too. May you feel whole and know that you are always beautiful no matter what! ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸผAccess via my faves page at LacyYoung.com/favorites
