Each day of the Goal pack has been curated by Om Swami with 4-5 recommended activities. These are structured as per the RARE (Reflect, Act, Reinforce, Evaluate) framework. The idea is simple – focus on what needs to be done on only one day i.e. Today. Starting the app will take you to the Today page where you will be shown the relevant action that you should ideally be doing, depending on the period of the day.
Morning (7 – 12m):
Ideally, you start the day with a few minutes of Reflective meditation. Each meditation is specifically created by Om Swami for the chosen goal in mind. We strongly recommend you begin the day with this guided meditation. The app will send a notification to remind you if you have not done this activity.
Throughout the day (7 – 12m):
The uniqueness of Black Lotus is that it is not just a meditation app but offers a holistic offering to make self-transformation possible. A key finding of Om Swami is that one needs to be kind in order to progress internally. The app gives you the opportunity to perform simple kindness acts in daily life, called Raks (Random Acts of Kindness). We recommend you to browse through the 3 suggested Raks once you complete the meditation and then try to do one of them in your day. You will find the kindness actions captured in the Act tab of Today. Just doing one Rak has been found to impact individuals positively, instantaneously.
Another activity in Act is an important tool for reaching the goal – Breathwork! Listen to the guided breathwork from Om Swami’s voice and witness the impact of breathing on your mind and body. We urge you to not miss out on this important daily activity.
Any time of the day (1 – 4m):
Once you complete the activities in Reflect and Act tabs, you will get the Reinforce activity unlocked. Here you will find a few minutes of inspirational reading content. All the reading content has been specifically curated for each goal by Om Swami. If you benefit and enjoy the reading, you can use the share option to pass it on to your loved ones.
Night (1 – 2m):
Before you call it a day, we recommend you note down your assessment of doing the activities in the day. This will be beneficial to make course corrections and ensure you are on the right track. You get to do this in the Evaluate tab where you will be asked specific questions that you can respond quickly.
That’s it! The app will remind you when you miss any activity across the 3 periods of the day – morning, evening, and night. If you do the suggested activity the moment you receive the notification, then you will be on your way to incorporating and benefiting from the RARE habit.
