"Grace comes from living each moment once."
Affirmation ~ Wisdom Deck
Personalize The Process
Every step of the Lucidesse app is responsive to the needs of the moment. Here are the five basic steps.
First, choose a topic: Creativity, Eating, Relating, Self, Sorrow, etc.
Second, choose an artistic style: meaningful, delightful, inspiring.
Third, choose a layout: supportive, challenging, harmonizing.
Fourth, choose an affirmation: insightful, healing, discovering.
Fifth, choose to share: friends, group, global, or remain private.
Here's a recap:
Choose a topic.
Choose an artist.
Choose a layout.
Choose an affirmation.
Choose to share.
There's far more to the app but let's start simple. The section below has images of the prototype, plus further explanation.
#1 Choose a topic.
The Lucidesse app contains many decks and each deck is filled with positive affirmations. A few topics contained in the decks are: Eating, Gratitude, I AM, Joy, Love, Relating, Self, Sorrow, Wisdom.
Each morning you choose a topic. You may choose a topic which inspires you, or one which feels rigid and limiting. Regardless of what you choose, the affirmations support your growth, and offer a healthy perspective on your chosen topic.
They also harmonize the mind-body connection because when the mind is positive, the body feels the positivity. (No more fighting within!)
You change your life by thinking one positive thought, and then another, and another. One at a time.
App for the Future
The Lucidesse app supports the future we want to live. The quickest way to heal the past is to walk forward. Whatever needs healing it will make itself known. If you doubt this, try it. Step toward your dreams and you'll meet a hurdle. But don't fret, hurdles are a natural part of the process.
“Healing into my future” means you’re brave enough to believe in yourself, to live the life you dream of, and trust that whatever needs healing is waiting for you, in the right time, in the right place, in the right way.
“Healing into my future” means practicing the life you want to live, here and now, right now, in this moment, and this moment, and this moment.
“Healing into my future” means standing firm on your chosen foundation, while allowing opportunities to open doors, and unseen possibilities to appear on the horizon. It means flashes of inspiration are no longer ignored, they are guidance.
We cannot escape the past but neither must we grovel in it. So, walk forward and excavate your hidden talents from the petrified stones of fear, worry, and doubt. (Lucidesse podcast has full version.)
Keys of Affirmation
Decks are filled with affirmations focused on one topic: Self, Relating, Creativity, Sorrow, Eating, Joy, and more.
When we need support with loss and grieving, we choose the Sorrow deck.
When we need more than one topic, we personalize a deck which supports our growth and unlocks our genius.
By repeating the affirmations we unlock the old and restructure new neural networks in our brain. (see Science)
When we need to discern our emotional needs from physical hunger, we choose the Eating deck.
Soon the mind responds with positive outlooks and we cultivate heartwarming attitudes about ourselves and life.
Each deck is artistically interpreted through the eyes of multiple artisans. (see Affirmations)
Meaningful experiences give rise to emotions such as amazement, wonder and awe. These emotions spark numerous areas of the brain at once.
These healthy emotions enhance lucidity in our mental networks, plus they amplify growth of healthy emotional networks.
The Lucidesse app invigorates our minds while nourishing our souls. A lucid mental network and a joyful emotional network are foundational to a harmonious life.
What is a Fractal?
Part 1 of 3
More than geometry
From the infinite droplets of water cascading over falls,
To the random geometry of trees growing into forests,
From the huge expanse of river deltas,
To the tiny bronchioles within the lungs,
From the exploding nebula to the imploding black hole,
Fractals are the chaotic, repeating patterns of our universe.
Part 2 of 3
Fractals in nature inspire the app. Following are a few of the layouts to choose from.
Eye of the Sunflower: Gaze through many perspectives to relate.
Becoming: Unfurl the one I long to be.
Nautilus : Reveal the infinite potential of my journey.
Daring: Be bold, be gentle, be one among billions.
Root to Rise: Root deep into me, rise higher than imagined.
Eye of the Storm: Unify my energy with a steady inward gaze.
Network: Supportive connections of life.
Part 3 of 3
Our lives are not static, they curl and twist into beautiful stories. These stories are not easily explained for we are complex and mystifying beings.
This is why the Lucidesse app uses fractals for the layout. There are two benefits, the first is novelty, which is discussed in the science section, and the second is balance.
Some days we need a quick solution so we choose the laser focus fractal. Other days we need a double-wide-angle-lens in order to see many viewpoints with lucidity and light.
The use of fractals balances the chaotic complexity of daily life. The fractals teach us to flow with the natural forces of the universe.
The balance of speaking and listening -- with respect -- is truly a stroke of genius, and it's something many of us seek.
Speaking has the power to heal. Am I speaking and respecting my truth?
Listening has the power to heal. Am I listening and respecting others' truths?
Healthy sharing requires mutual respect. Within the app, we move in this direction, we speak, we listen, we learn, we apologize, forgive, heal, and grow. Together.
Healthy sharing is how we craft a life of meaning alongside others on their own unique path.
