Two people in the United Kingdom invented Lumenate a meditation app. It is a way to induce a psychedelic-like state of consciousness, all from the comfort of your home and your phone, but all you really need a pitch-black space and your phone. Lumenate hit app stores on March 2nd, 2021. It uses your phone’s flashlight to create a stroboscopic sequence of light that neurologically guides the person into altering their state of consciousness for a deep meditation psychedelic DMT-like experience.
Jay Conlon and Tom Galea invented Lumenate. They were both attending the University of Liverpool. Upon graduation, the new friends worked on the design of cars for Jaguar Land Rover. They both left the designing business to pursue their passion for helping people live more fulfilling lives. Galea and Conlon interviewed hundreds of people from all corners of the globe to better understand the concept of fulfilment.
From what they learned, they decided to explore and research deep into the subconsciousness of people. After they learned from many psychedelic experts and hundreds of EEG brain-scanning experiments, they developed a researched-based method to use light and sound to guide the user’s brain into the desired state.
When the light is flashed in a certain way, it makes the brain’s neurons react and fire in a synchronized rhythm that carefully guides the brain into a meditative psychedelic state. Lumenate’s analysis also showed a reduction in activity in an assortment of brain areas identified as the default mode network, a fundamental transformation witnessed in psychedelic studies and some kinds of meditation. The change occurs in a diminished sense of ego and a heightened focus on the present moment.
Conlon and Galea’s vision of making subconscious exploration available for the masses, the app is now available for free download. Those who find meaning in the experience can unlock the entire catalogue of sessions to satisfy every mood available. It is available now for a limited time for $6.99 per month or $39.99 for a year subscriptions.
Before I unlocked the full version, I tried the free version, which lasted 5 minutes. I did it twice, and this is my 5 minute experience the second time:
I enclosed myself into a small dark room with my iPhone’s headphones with the Lamernate app on, and I closed my eyes and turned the phone around.
The light show started like a firework display of epilepsy. Once I found the optimal range at which to hold my phone to between my eyes which was about 2 inches from just above the centre of my eyes really trying to activate the power of my third eye or the pineal gland. In 2017, Dr. Rick Strassmen showed in studies that rats and mice produce DMT through their pineal gland flooding the brain when they dream and die.
I had seen various colours, bright blues, greens, reds, and many bright white and sometimes yellow lights. The colours and awkward patterns started to meld together, and these mini kaleidoscope-looking balls of rainbow colours took over the entire scope of my vision. All of those mini-balled kaleidoscopes merged together, all swirling clockwise, then collapsed into themselves, forming a black hole. Then, my consciousness went into the black hole and peaking through the other side was a spiderweb-like pattern made of wire-like material that would produce various colours. I could see transition run at lightspeed across the web-like ways as it lights up with a slight glow and a vibrating pattern rippled by like mini waves disrupting the spacetime around it.
As I backed away from this pattern, I realized that many little perfect 3D balls look like raindrops intertwined amongst the wire web. I got close to one of the drops to look inside it. As I floated closer to it, the bigger it got. When I was able to look inside, I seen a universe entirely made of a computer program of a similar universe like our own, but this universe people were just a hollow 3D image that had many glitches that needed many updates for its broken software.
I went away from that bubble universe and into the spiderwebs of electrical wires and realized it held many different universe’s consciousnesses. We all connected telepathically. Together our soup of consciousness weaved our way through the different dimensions. Travelling at light speed, which felt normal, I passed many universes and many types of other consciousnesses.
As I was about to approach a different universe bubble, my five minutes was up, then I bought the full version, told my girlfriend the experience and just wrote it out now so I wouldn’t forget.
The following article will explain my experiences with unlocking the full version of Lumenate.
