Natural Language Listening Helps Find the Meaning in Your Writing

When you're struggling to make sense of things and you're feeling fuzzy, you need someone or something to listen and help you identify unexamined topics to explore and understand.

With Lucidly, you can simply write a few sentences about what's on your mind, and Lucidly's Natural Language Listening technology will scan your writing for meaningful aspects to explore, then you can seamlessly launch into a guided inquiry about those aspects.

It's like having what you want in a great listener, but on-demand and completely private.

Explore a Library of Over 1,500 Common Scenarios

Relationships, disagreements, painful psychological states, career decisions, and much more, Lucidly comes with a growing library of over 1,500 topics that cover common life scenarios and important aspects of life.

Browse the full library, explore the daily topic, or generate a random topic to find something that matches your situation or ignites your curiosity.

Then, launch into a productive, insightful guided inquiry to reach insights and understanding.

Comprehensive Inquiry Process to Help You Learn and Grow

Lucidly is built with a powerful ‘inquiry engine' that generates a comprehensive set of inquiries specifically designed to guide you towards an integrated understanding of any topic.

With a simple push of a button, you get the powerful, productive, personalized exercises, thought experiments, and questions you need to learn about yourself, grow from past experiences, transform painful mental states, and more.

Accelerate Insights with an Artificial Memory

As you're exploring a topic, Lucidly uses what's called your Life Atlas to bring the relevant aspects of your life into the context of questions.

You can think of your Life Atlas as an artificial memory that helps you as you're trying to make sense of new things in the context of your life.

By curating your Life Atlas in Lucidly, you can accelerate your ability to find connections, identify patterns, and reach bigger insights about your life.

"I can't believe how quickly I got down deep into some insights that I did not have before."

Transform Painful Mental States with Tools and Exercises

Many challenging mental states are either symptoms of when our ability to navigate life has broken down, or when our brain is trying to tell us something important.

While many practices teach you to ignore or suppress these states, Lucidly gives you specific tools to productively work with these states and turn them into opportunities to learn and grow.

With these tools, you can learn and practice how to break out of painful mental loops, be with physical and psychological pain, identify the source of what's bothering you, manage negative and challenging thoughts, and more.

“Before Lucidly I was constantly in the background thinking about my life without really even noticing. Now it is like all of that is cleared out. I feel as though I found a center I didn't know I had, or forgot I had.

The Power of Great Questions

Questions are an essential and powerful tool for making sense of things.

But not all questions are good for you. Many questions include harmful aspects that lead you astray from what's best for you, and the world is full of them.

Fortunately, modern cognitive science has revealed how questions work and how they can be carefully designed to help and support your mind.

Lucidly is built on over a decade of research into the science of inquiry to give you a one-of-a-kind inquiry platform for making sense of things.

Based 100% on 21st-Century Cognitive Science

21st-century cognitive science has completely changed the scientific understanding of the brain and what's needed for psychological well-being.
It's now known that we all rely on a powerful form of intelligence called 'natural intelligence' to successfully make sense of things and navigate life.
But when our natural intelligence breaks down, it leads to painful psychological states, the inability to think clearly, failing to make sense of things, and much more.
While other mental health and wellness apps are based on outdated science, Lucidly is the only solution based 100% on principles distilled from 21st-century cognitive science to restore and enhance your natural intelligence.

The sense that one's life has meaning and purpose goes along with our ability to navigate life, and it has been shown to be correlated with everything in a colored circle and anti-correlated with everything in a grey circle.

Your Private Data Stays Off The Internet and Safe with You

Many of the top mental health and wellness apps "track, share, and capitalize on their users' most intimate personal thoughts and feelings."

Even for the companies that don't exploit their users' data, most still store their users' personal thoughts and writing in the cloud where it is vulnerable to breaches and hacks.

Lucidly is specifically engineered to deliver a productive, transformative service without storing anything from your personal life. Your private personal information stays safe with you, stored only on your device.

"I feel more secure with Lucidly because I know that my writing is only being seen by me."

You can use Lucidly for making sense of:

Past Experiences

- Chapters
- Events
- Relationships
- Parts of Yourself
- Etc.

Challenging Situations

Testimonials

We've asked our users how working things out with Lucidly's tools has influenced their life, how it has made them feel, and how it compares to their experiences with therapy, with talking things out with friends and family, and with sorting things out through journaling, after using Lucidly's tools for anywhere from a few minutes to a few weeks. These are some representative responses:

"Facilitating a group process with Lucidly was a wonderful experience, really effective, and pulled on my natural skills as a facilitator. The software could ‘hold space’ and I felt supported in running the group. I could imagine this helping facilitators hold on to the role even if the group dynamics are difficult."

"I was hoping for a good family conversation where we could learn more about each other and I got that with Lucidly!"

"I like using Lucidly with others as an activity because it feels deeper and more guided than a normal conversation."

"Using Lucidly with my family makes dinner less silent and more meaningful. It brings our family together."

"I think using Lucidly would be fun at church or bible study because it would help break the ice and it gives thought experiments that are easy for anyone to relate to."

"Using Lucidly helped me learn more about others in my family."

"When I'm participating in a group using Lucidly, I love that I can just choose to listen because I always learn something."

"Before Lucidly I was constantly in the background thinking about my life without really even noticing. Now it is like all of that is cleared out. I feel as though I found a center I didn't know I had, or forgot I had."

"Lucidly provides a wonderful tool for stepping back and taking stock of one's life. I love the simplicity of just answering questions that speak to me. Over time I am feeling a stronger sense of peace and confidence as my life is coming back into focus.

I love how everything I capture from my life is presented back to me through the prompts. There have been many times where I am prompted to look for connections and one will jump out and I think 'That's it! I totally see it now!' and I have this moment of clarity where I have a new insight about myself. It's almost like putting together I giant jig-saw puzzle of one's self and seeing a whole picture emerge."

"Lucidly has opened me up like a book, and taught me how to examine my life in a meaningful and powerful way.

It has provided me with the best return, by far, on my time spent working on myself. Once I saw the patterns within my own life I haven't forgotten them. I am now free to choose to change what I want to, and importantly, to see what I don't want to change.

It is a fun and challenging system that is there 24/7. Insights don't come on a schedule, and I like knowing that Lucidly is there to help me capture and explore them.

I learned more about my life in 6 hours of using the system than 2 years of talk therapy."

"I am naturally a scoffer at self-help tools, for a variety of reasons, none that I can attach to Lucidly. I am astounded how easy it is to use and how diverse its range is. The prompts were easy and compelling."

There are many things I could go on about my favorite was that I could keep it as simple as I liked. Yet, I realize I could delve into anything I so desired or felt I needed to explore within myself.

The safety net of no one ever being able to access my private thoughts is the most important feature of Lucidly."

"I JUST started using Lucidly this evening and wow. Just wow. I can't believe how quickly I got down deep into some insights that I did NOT have before."

"I measured my life outlook before and after using Lucidly and all of my levels had increased from the beginning of the session by at least 30% -- which makes sense because I felt so much better."

"What I really like is that I can use Lucidly at my own pace, sometimes in a therapy session I feel pressured to say things I’m not comfortable talking about yet."

"I feel more secure (with Lucidly than with therapy) because I know that it is only being seen by me."

"The software let me pause and think. That resembled real life meditation - really cool."

"Lucidly is similar to talking to family and friends. It's almost like venting. I've never been to therapy but I feel like Lucidly is very much like a therapist, asking questions, seeking clarity, etc."

"Lucidly has been very life changing and very empowering for me. I am a private person by nature but even more so when it comes to my emotional well-being. I am not one to ask for help or seek out the help of others when I am hurting or am confused.

This had lead me to harbor anger and resentment and left me unable to move on in many parts of my life. But Lucidly has changed this.

I am able to go onto the app and work through very private emotions and feelings and get these feelings sorted out in the privacy of my own home. I no longer find myself 'stuck' in an emotional loop but instead am finding resolution and peace. Using Lucidly has become part of my daily life."

"Lucidly is much better than talking to others because i'm looking into myself for the answers to my behavior instead of trying to reflect off of someone who may have other biases."

"I was able to talk about several aspects of an issue and explore them in depth. In some ways, Lucidly helped me realize connections that I didn’t even see before in my own life."

"I think Lucidly offers a very unique and practical solution to help people work through anything on their minds."

"Lucidly is much more productive (than therapy) I think because it allows me to explore topics at my own pace and allows me to answer questions that offer some insight in to my behavior and feelings without adding extra bias or input such as seeing a therapist."

"I think Lucidly is much better than journaling because it is guided and allows me to stay on topic."

"After using Lucidly, I feel like this might be a viable alternative for a daily therapy session."

"I think Lucidly eliminates a lot of the deterrences most of us deal with when thinking about talking about certain matters with a friend or family member."

"Delving into Lucidly literally has made me feel emotionally and even physically lighter, like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders."
