While we were sharing the Lucia No.3 in the VIP room at Paleo f(x) 2018, I heard that Dennis would be speaking in the next room. I asked my associates to take care of the VIPs while I went to hear him speak. I apologize for the challenged video quality. I didn't have my tripod and my arms were shaking a bit trying to keep my somewhat heavy 5D trained on him.
You may know of him as he and his brother, Terrence McKenna, are responsible for introducing Ayahuasca to the western world. He is also on the board of the Heffter Research Institute which mentors and supports psilocybin researchers, evaluates new approaches, and supports proof-of-concept studies in an effort to gather the evidence base for therapeutic treatments.
Consider checking out his new book about growing up with Terrence: "The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss", I'm certain he would appreciate it .
Meditation can be one of the most potent methods of service to one's self, community, the earth, and humanity. Intensified emotions and actions have long been associated with full moons. We've noticed that our meditations during full moons often appear to have an amplified impact, as well. The magnifying effects of full moons have been written of throughout history, marking auspicious occasions; in folklore, mythology, spiritual celebrations, and harvests.
Full Buck Moon
July is the month of the Full Buck Moon, as bucks begin to grow new antlers around this time of year. The most recent full moon is also known as the Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are so frequent during the month of July. It's also called the hay moon because it signals to farmers it is time to harvest the hay before the rains come.
Full moons have been associated with insomnia throughout time. Research shows that the pineal gland does more than regulate sleep cycles. Many believe that the iridescence of the moon is a powerful light source that not only suspends sleep, but can stimulate inspiration and divine connection. Artists, shamans, healers, and seeker all look to the moon for light, externally and internally.
What is a Full Moon?
"A full moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the moon is completely illuminated, when viewed from Earth. This is when the Moon is opposite the Earth from the Sun. This means that the (ecliptic) longitudes of the Sun and Moon differ by 180 degrees; the Moon is in opposition with the Sun. Lunar months, synodic months, average about 29.5 days."
Samantha is of Native American descent and has always felt a special connection with the moon. We find that, not only, our planting cycles follow the moon, but our ritual cycles. When the moon is high and bright in the sky, you can find our entire family enjoying this special luminous, illuminating time. We enjoy smudging each other, incense rituals, planting, watering, and grooming our green friends, spending time meditating in the moonlight, and watching Tesla twirl in the moonlight. Oh, but to see through a two year old's eyes on a full moon! Watching her be allowed and encouraged to appreciate the fullness of the moon, her decreased desire to sleep, and her increased desire to create excites me to no end.
We've attempted to allow her to follow her body's natural circadian rhythms since birth, including full moon inspirational
“but the fully-lighted orb of the moon indicates a free and unimpeded alignment between our planet and the sun, the solar center, the energy source for all life on Earth. At such times we can make a definite approach to God, the Creator, the center of life and intelligence.” ~Alice A. Bailey
Five Day Moon Cycles
As you might have recognized, the impacts of the full moon are usually considered to strongly impact five days. The two days preceding, the day of the full moon, and the two days following each full moon.
One line of thought is that the two days prior to the full moon, one should look to release the ego and remove thoughts of one's own issues/problems, whether they impact the mind, body or spirit.
The day of the full moon is a day for connecting the external to the internal and the internal to the external. Turning within can have a very powerful outward result.
The two days following the full moon are days of action and activity. These are days upon which creative ideas abound in the face of virtually all challenges.
Anthony Peake is the author of bestselling titles The Out-of-Body Experience and The Infinite Mindfield speaks of his experience with the The Lucia No.3 hypnagogic light device.
He is a member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, The Scientific & Medical Network and the Society for Psychical Research. He's been interviewed by and written articles for many magazines, including Kindred Spirit, Mindscape, Odyssey, New Dawn, PKD Otaku and Paranormal.

This is from a Lucia No.3 Lucid Light session last year where our client graciously agreed to allow us to take a few photos or shoot some video to post on our site.
During her 5 minute hypnagogic light expeience, I took 2 or 3 photos and this short video. She had been silent until I turned began to record her. This is what transpired.
(I love that "wait-for-it" moment)
As you can tell from the video, there is more to this than just blinking lights.
We were invited to share the Lucia No.3 Lucid Light to the 2016 Natural Universe Fitness Super Show that was held at the Travis County Expo Center in Austin, TX. We received a very warm welcome from the competitors, their fans, and the vendors. It was the most conscious body building event any of us had previously been witness to. Plus, the raw vegan fare served to all who came was really fantastic!! This is an event we likely won't miss in the future.
The Natural Universe Show was a true Keep Austin Weird kind of event with no alcohol, but plenty of cold coconut water. It included a film festival, a poker tournament, a yoga exhibition, acro-yoga lessons, and there was a charity poker tournament hosted by Andrew "Lucky Chewy" Lichtenberger, a conscious young man with a heart for humanity. I don't know that I've used terms like that to describe a poker player before.
I may have gotten a little carried away with effects when creating our recap video, but you'll get the idea:

When examining consciousness, we would be remiss not to speak of death and what we think happens to our consciousness when we make the final transition in this plane.
We want to introduce you to a friend with an expansive experience practicing and teaching meditation who has written a book called Overcoming the Fear of Death, Kelvin Chin.
As a teacher of meditation for 40 years, Kelvin Chin has deep experience in the field of self-development, and brings a refreshing "pragmatic idealist" approach, grounded in "knowing oneself," to his work in legal services, business development, mediation, meditation, and overcoming the fear of death.
He has been working with audiences on death and dying issues since the 1980's and has taught numerous seminars for the healthcare industry, was a Long Term Care Ombudsman for the California Department of Aging, and a co-founder of the Center For Medical Ethics and Mediation.
His book is unique. He outlines 4 belief systems regarding death that underlie all religions and cultures. His approach is nonreligious and aims to increase readers' understandings about death through their own lens of belief without creating a need to modify their individual belief structures to reduce their fear of death.
He explains 4 Main Belief Systems About Death:
1) No Belief in Afterlife
2) Afraid of Heaven or Hell
3) Looking Forward to Heaven
4) Belief in Past Lives
He walks people through the process using personal stories from friends and family in a way that humanizes the subject, making the book a ‘fun read.’
Kelvin has taught meditation in living rooms, schools, businesses worldwide for 40 years and does work with individuals in person and via phone, Internet, and Skype. Kelvin has taught more than 1,000 people from extremely diverse socio-economic groups an easy-to-learn technique of naturally Turning Within with no concentration or religious affiliation required.
According to an article in the BBC, flashes of light may impact jet lag. It's one of the most common sleep disorders as millions of people struggle with it and it's impacts. The National Sleep Foundation says the condition results from an imbalance in our body's biological clock caused by traveling to different time zones.
They state that,
Basically, our bodies work on a 24-hour cycle called "circadian rhythms." These rhythms are measured by the distinct rise and fall of body temperature, plasma levels of certain hormones and other biological conditions. All of these are influenced by our exposure to sunlight and help determine when we sleep and when we wake.
The people at how-cast put together a cheeky video on 8 ways to combat the fatigue and restless associated with jet lag:
Their views on the best way to address jet lag include these 8 suggestions:
