Lucidity Invites You to Have a Breakthrough Moment
For the past six years, we have been telling the story of Lucidity through the lens of Luci’s dreamworld. It’s a story of identity, transformation, community, and now we are moving into a new story of Lucid Living.
Just as the morning sun peeks its face over the mountains and casts light upon a new day, so are we, as a lucid community, preparing for such a breakthrough. Simultaneously miraculous, majestic, beautiful as well as anticipated, cyclical, inevitable… our re-awakening is upon us.
Rising Dawn marks the beginning of a new day and a new story. However, there’s one vital challenge to be acknowledged: this Story has only begun to be written. Our team of storytellers are being guided, perhaps by the characters of the story themselves, to invite YOU, our audience, to co-author the new story with us. Let us share what we’ve foreseen so far, in the hopes that you might take the torch and move the story forward in a myriad of unique ways that honor the heart and essence of the Lucidity Mythos.
7 Things You Should Know About the Lucidity Universe.
You’ve been the dreamer at the heart of our story all along.
You may believe that Lucidity is produced by a team of radio wielding multidimensional dreamers, crafting elaborate experiences, immersive environments, and heartful moments, and on one plane of reality this holds true. However, the more poignant and esoteric truth is that you’ve been the ones making this magic all along… even if you’ve never been to Lucidity Festival before. Just like Fantasia in the Neverending Story, Lucidity is a place that is fueled by your imagination, your wishes, your dreams. Except Lucidity exists in both the dreamtime, and in waking, positioning two dimensions for us to play in. We’ve been playing in the dreamtime for the last six years… now it’s time to wake up! You are the breakthrough!
The Last Six Years Were an Elaborate Lucid Dream Sequence - Now We Are Awake
Dreams were nested within dreams, featuring Luci as your inner dreamer within the dream.
Luci awoke in the dream, recognizing it as a dream while still within the dream, amidst rainstorms, mudpuddles, lightning, space whales, and LOVE!
Luci met totem animals and village archetypes and explored the many layers to her multidimensional being.
Luci realized these totems and archetypes were all a part of her already. She then astral projected into the cosmos and met her intergalactic twin, Starbling, and a host of star families.
As depicted in this animation we created as a part of our Lucidity Mythos project, Luci goes on a Kindred Quest, learning from her ancestral and galactic past and joining her tribe around the All Tree.
(Read about the making of this magical animated film.)
Luci showed up to face the present moment, a more confident and learned adventurer, poised to join her community in facing the challenges of this unique Now in human history. A myriad of possible timelines fractured in all directions, she chooses the one she gives her lucid attention to.
Eventually returning home to a thriving Eudaimonia, Luci holds this dream of a peaceful, abundant, and green human future on Planet Earth as the goal worthy of her love and spirit.
We stand on a precipice, and looking out upon the horizon, with gratitude for the integration of the learnings from a long and challenging quest fulfilled, we see a familiar sunrise. A new day is upon us. A new story is welling in our hearts. We see this next rite of passage as a new quest toward a unified humanity, and we joyfully say YES, and Thank You!
From Moon’s unique vantage point, she sees all that transpires on our pale blue dot — all our joys and all our pain, all of our creating and all of our destruction. She insists that we must be willing to fearlessly journey into the great unknown if we wish to share such an expanded perspective!
We step confidently into this big place, knowing our actions and deeds affect all of life and ripple outward in infinite directions. We stand up again and resolve to be Guardians, Stewards and Engaged Activators, not just for our own backyards, not just for the village we call home, but for our communities and for our precious garden planet.
Like all epic myths, this one has a creation story.
Our origin story, the beginning of the Lucid Universe, paves the way for all that’s come before and all that is still yet to come. Get lost and found in our creation story, be inspired to create within this Universe.
Now, in 2018, Dawn, a new character in the Lucidity Universe is opening her eyes from the dream in this waking reality.
Our new story finds Dawn waking up from her long lucid dream sequence, back into this waking world. Dawn, a human, learns that she’s also an avatar of an ancient fire elemental and experiences a strong connection with the Sun. Like Luci, Dawn represents the fire in You and her waking up is the waking up of the fire elemental in your very being!
Dawn is not alone, she’s got a whole team!
As we’ve been listening, we’ve become aware that in this Now, there are other elementals waking up in other humans too. We’ve identified Leaf, River, and Zephyr as Dawn’s cohort of elemental avatars. Learn all about this cast of characters and their totem allies here. We look forward to seeing how you dream these characters awake in your artful expressions, in your rituals of embodiment, and in all of your meaningful lucid engagements. This is the heart of our invitation to you!
The Archetypal Villages of yesteryear are gone... a fond remembrance from a dream. Moving here onward, Lucidity will be organized into 5 Elemental Realms!
The 7 archetypal villages of the lucid dream of the last 6 years (Healers’ Sanctuary, Nomads; Nook, Lovers’ Nest, Warriors’ Way, Trixters’ Playground, Goddess Grove, and The Family Garden) exist in our psyches always already along with the spirit animals that watch over them (Owl, Monkey, Doves, Tiger, Coyote, Jaguar, and Dragon). As we wake up and look around, we see and acknowledge that our waking reality is governed by 5 elements, each with a realm unto themselves, an Oracle of timeless wisdom, and an elemental avatar. Read more about the elemental realms and their corresponding Oracles here.
