Flotation has an almost mystical ability for many people to provide an immediate sense of healing after exiting one’s first session. However, over time, each session provides a new route on the path to inner peace and balance.
With every session, people find themselves having brand-new experiences and discovering pieces of themselves that they never thought they would find. There could be times that you find yourself focused on the future, whereas other times, you can revisit deep memories of the past with greater clarity.
Even with flotation as a habitual practice, every session will be slightly different. The longer one practices, the more that is uncovered within the self and the stronger the meditative state can be. In a way, flotation is similar to yoga.
Both are fantastic for inner harmony and focused thoughts, but provide an even stronger sense of relaxation with practice. You wouldn’t start your first yoga class with Sirsa Padasana. You wouldn’t start your first float session as a master of placidity, either.
A certain excitement comes from the unknown. Luckily, there is so much one can discover about oneself when they take a moment for much deserved self-care.
