How The Lucid Talisman Works
Learn more about each side of the coin and what it can do for you.
Be Lucid All Day
Easily Create Daytime Lucid Habits
When you wear the Lucid Talisman or keep it somewhere highly visible, you create opportunities to “test your reality.” This technique is known officially as as the Critical State Test, or the “Reality Check.”
When the habit of Reality Checks is established from using the Lucid Talisman, the mind will bring up this questioning during your dreams and you will find yourself doing a reality check in a dream!
Ground Yourself When Stressed
The Lucid Talisman also serves as an effective grounding tool. When feeling anxious, spaced out, or caught in negative memory loops, reassure that you are Here Now by making contact with the Lucid Talisman in your pocket. Once grounded, you can perform a relaxation technique to stay centered.
The Perfect Dream Sign
The Lucid Talisman has proved to be very effective at injecting itself into people’s dreams. Simply by admiring the Talisman during the day, studying its imagery and textures, the coin becomes a dream sign, or a bizarre element in the dream that spontaneously emerges and causes you to think, “How weird is this?…. Am I dreaming?”
We designed to Lucid Talisman to have a strong presence even when the lights are off. It’s satisfyingly heavy, and your fingers can discern the engravings easily in the dark. If you suffer from nightmares or night time terrors of any kind, the Lucid Talisman can be kept on your bedside table or under your pillow, and used to as a physical reminder to ground yourself, perform relaxation techniques, or prepare for your favorite middle-of-the-night lucid dreaming practices.
What does the Imagery on the Talisman Mean?
In particular, the Lucid Talisman draws from the medieval study of alchemy which at its heart was the pursuit to transform base metals into gold.
Psychologically, this practice mirrors the transformation of consciousness throughout our lives. In other words, akin to the medieval alchemists, our process throughout life is to transmute base desires and ancient impulses into creative art, wisdom and scientific achievement.
That’s why we say the Lucid Talisman is the restoration of an ancient cognitive tool for encouraging lucidity in waking life and in your dreams.
