I had an amazing trip to Austria to discover more about Light Attendance GMBH, the consciousness-bending company based in Innsbruck and to visit the developers of the Lucia No.3 in Kuffstein, Austria. It was so amazing that getting my feet back under me and writing this post has taken over a month.
I had the distinct pleasure of meeting and staying with Sigrid Pearce, the delightfully fun, yet pragmatic, business intellectual guiding the company. Not only was she a wealth of insight regarding the company, it's actors, and actions; she shared valuable technical information that will allow me to identify and create more targeted light sessions. I also believe what she shared will help us to better understand the Lucid Light's capabilities and learn to optimize how we use it.
The transition is complete and we are overflowing with thankfulness! Lucid Light of Austin has moved to our new office!!! It is MUCH more spacious, has more parking, a meditation/yoga/teaching room, and will soon be host to numerous gatherings of healers, philosophers, and artists in our community. We will be posting the works of art that will be featured in our gallery here and hope to create the ability to purchase these works online.

What an amazing month!?! We have spent the month socializing, sharing the Lucia No.3, creating art, and we believe we may have found a new, larger, more accessible location for the Lucid Light Meditation Center and Art Studio. This lovely South Austin location will include a room for Lucid Light sessions and a meditation/yoga/art gallery room. If all progresses as expected, we hope this will become a space for local visionary artists to gather and create.
Although many artists spent the month of December focused on selling art, ours was occupied with the manifestation of creative expression. This was expressed in numerous forms: cooking, writing, singing, poetry, painting, and digital art. The images below are a sampling of some of our favorite digital creations this month.
Something else wonderful happened this month. We discovered more than one art printer who believes they can reproduce our images in a much larger format. If all goes well, we will move to the larger center and have some art produced in an appropriate size for the new studio/gallery!
Big change is in the air, use it to your (our) advantage. December has reinforced how desires for positive change can become manifest and how that power to create change is amplified with each new participant. "Be the change you wish to see" has seldom appeared so accessible to our culture.
What change do you wish to see this year and how can we participate in your vision?
When I first encountered the Lucid Light, I tried and tried to explain some of what I saw under the light, but felt as if my words were not doing the experience justice. I began doodling similar to the Zentangles mentioned in a previous blog post.
In my first sessions with the Lucia No.3, the first patterns I noticed emerging were starbursts and rays of cuboidal images of blues, oranges, and reds, so that's where I started. Beginning by creating simple starburst patterns, rotating the starbursts and filling each in with more rays. I then tried platonic solids on rays, and repeated and extended the patterns that resulted. That led me to using sacred geometric designs and repeating their patterns in different arrangements, sizes, and opacities. I began trying to replicate what I was doing by using specialized software I found that would allow me to enter the number of points, recursion depth, ratios, angles, radius, opacity, color, repetition data, etc. What you see below are my favorites selected from hours and days of attempts.
I've always created art for myself. I say I would like to sell my art, but seldom do and have found myself discouraging and blocking people from purchasing it. These were up in my office for a short while before a client decided they would look better in her yoga room. She continued to say she wanted them and I finally conceded. I think I'll print another set as they became welcome focal points for me when doing afternoon meditations and during hands-on healing work. I'm thrilled that people are enjoying the art I love to create.
This mandala a visual representation of positive intent for those who value and defend our water, our lands, our air, our people; and for those who have come to defend them. May you find empathy, peace, health, joy, courage and find greater connection to all of humanity. May the community formed by those of you gathering to defend our earth and water become a catalyst for powerful reconnection to creator, creation, and each other.
This mandala a visual representation of positive intent for those who came to represent the government and corporations. May you find empathy, peace, health, joy, courage and find greater connection to all of humanity. May the community formed by those gathered to defend our earth, water, and people become inspirations that empower you to recognize a powerful reconnection to creator, creation, and each other.
Be love. We are I.
Our meditation during this season in which we celebrate family and thankfulness is one of peace, health, comfort, forgiveness, thankfulness, and fortitude. We are thankful they are, not only present, but abundant in our lives. Our meditations of positive manifestation are not focused on ourselves, but on the water protectors of Standing Rock.
May you feel the love of all humanity as you peacefully face those who vilify and attack you. May your integrity, passion, respect, courage, and honor change the collective heart of all mankind.
We are I.
These two, Michelle and Keith Norris, are so much fun and into anything that might improve health, wellness, well-being, comfort, longevity, and my favorite: consciousness.
What an action-packed weekend!
We provided sessions to almost one hundred Voice & Exit Festival attendees!!!
There are a few others on our Facebook page.
We are pleased and honored to announce that Lucid Light of Austin will be showcased at this year's Voice and Exit, the Festival of the Future. If you're anywhere near Austin this weekend, you don't want to miss this! There will be an incredible lineup of speakers, thinkers, interactive technology, art, and people who "be" really well.
There will be a special section this year called, "Tea and Trance" where we will share the effortless meditation available via the Lucia No.3 hypnagogic light while Robin Arnott of the international award-winning SoundSelf; a virtual reality game introduces people to technologies that will aid them in breathwork and reaching trance-like states.
I like to use art as a meditation and have found that as I release self-criticism, my mind frees from it's normal constraints and is able to explore without my ego judging and corrupting the direction my being has chosen. As my ego's influence can be strong at times and my self-critical nature evident, I have found that focusing on my breath quiets my pesky monkey mind and tends to activate my inner flow state that is responsible for creating the art that was beyond my reach moments before.
A practice of creating as flow, rather than creating for a goal results in greater mental clarity and sense of well-being that results in a physical imprint on our world. Creating art activates my flow space, focusing on my breath aids in directing, expanding, and clarifying the direction of artistic flow. That flow opens channels that allow for geometric expansion of artistic intellectual expression while moderating how often the self checks in to see if it is "acceptable".
Create freely and wildly. Allow for and expand on "mistakes" to find entirely new paradigms. Be empathetic with yourself through each evolution of your work. Allow yourself to be wrong, allow yourself to be right and ALWAYS breathe.
