What does 'Lucianus' Mean?

Lucianus is a Latin word meaning "light, illumination, or to shine".

A few years ago, shortly after launching my first venture, Creatures of Whim, I had this profound and
life-changing dream that I consider a spiritual experience:

In this dream, I found myself among unfamiliar faces, a group of newfound friends perhaps from a class setting. During a break, a classmate unveiled a tarot deck titled "Lucianus," its cover adorned with simple black ink illustrations. As she attempted to open the box, a blinding burst of light emanated, revealing a celestial figure—a blue-skinned deity. His skin was azure, his hair intricately braided, and he was adorned with numerous ornate necklaces cascading around his neck. Instantly, an inner knowing stirred: he was a
God-form - a Divine being. My intuition resonated with certainty of this realization. 

With a touch upon our shoulders, he transformed us all into pure light, an ethereal form in which  I felt weightless and interconnected with all existence, embodying both light and love. Upon awakening, I delved into research, stunned to find the striking resemblance between the Hindu god, Shiva, and the figure in my dream. The synchronicity left me in awe, questioning how my mind conjured such precise imagery. Grateful for the profound encounter, I embrace the connection with Shiva, feeling guided and protected by his infinite wisdom. This experience reaffirms my belief in the tangible reality of intuition and the
divine guidance that permeates our lives.

Since that dream, the word "Lucianus" has carried immense significance for me. It embodies the inner light within each of us, the ethereal realm from which we originate. To me, "Lucianus" symbolizes our spiritual home, the sanctuary of souls, and the inherent divinity within us all. From that moment, I felt compelled to incorporate this word into a future project or business endeavor because it holds such deep meaning for me. Thus, Lore of Lucianus was born.
