How about getting a total day/s of relaxation, rest and comfort? I’ve been giving myself some of that very thing. Yes, I’m enjoying some R&R at Inception.
I love Floating. Currently, it’s my favorite thing to do. There are always two sides to things.
One day last week while Floating I must have been wound-up or something. Because I was restless I asked myself, “How hard is it to lay here and ‘Do Nothing?’
Relaxed and yet not relaxed. My body felt good but my mind raced with
thoughts and images uninvited. I then, listen to my thoughts and watch a few images stroll thru my internal screen of consciousness.
I remember, ‘Oh yes, I want to call Skirv when I get home…….and yes Mary too.’ Okay, I tell myself. Eventually, my mind quiets some and I just lay back, sprawled and I rest. It’s a profound rest once I get the hang of it. ‘Doing nothing’ is cast in a special environment where a lot of “no things and Nothing’ is going on.
I have the visceral sense of No – Gravity! That’s right I feel like ‘suspended animation’. I’m literally gliding on top of water where I can’t tell where my skin and water touch or not touch. Once in a while I’ll touch the pod here or there; not disturbing in the least.
I rest there in the warm arms of the Float. I’m buoyant and like a cork my body drifts on top of ten inches of water loaded with eight to a thousand pounds of Epsom salts. My skin is so very soft from the magnesium in the water perhaps.
There is No – Sound. I hear my heart beat now and then but that’s about it.
It’s quiet and I see only darkness. The light has gone. No – Light. This environment is quite an anomaly. Where have I opened my eyes to see only darkness?
Ahhhh, it’s just me in here. No distractions. Alone at last? If I can’t be with me how in the h*& will anyone else want to be with me? So yes, I’m alone at last……….in the quiet, in the dark, all alone floating through my very own ‘inner space.’ I consider myself to be a Inner Space Cadet.
How awesome is THAT! You gotta try it to know it. Even the Bible says to go into thy closet and pray. The Float Pod or Room is the BEST praying, meditating closet I’ve ever seen or experienced. Rest, Relax, Breathe, Pray, Meditate or Do Nothing. The only thing happening in that Chamber is YOU. How far down Inner Space do you want to go??
The best part is how I feel after the Float! My sense of aliveness is accelerated, and appreciated. I feel more relaxed, rejuvenated, energized, and restored to balance and center.
I’d love to hear from some other Inner Space Cadets.
