To everything there is a time and a season. There's a time to remember what you've read about floating and what you've heard your float center host say in your orientation.
And there's a time to forget.
Once you step into your float chamber and close the door and start your float, it's time to forget. You're floating in a comfortable quiet position. So, forget about everything else now.
Just go with the flow. Let the float happen. Put away the words. Let the experience unfold.
There is nothing more to do than just pay attention from moment to moment to moment.
Enjoy the After-Glow
Once the music comes through the water, signalling the end of your 90-minute float, a surprise awaits you.
You'll step out of your float chamber, and no matter what else has happened to you in the last 90-minutes, you will most likely notice 3 things in your few steps from the tank to the shower:
- You are really, really relaxed. The last thing you want is to rush.
- Every part of you is in slow-mode.
- You will open your eyes to an intensely vivid world that delights your senses. You see and hear in a newly vibrant way.
Both you and the world feel new.
That's why float centres have post-float lounges. You are not ready to rush out into that big, loud jarring world yet. So, seat yourself and savour not only your tea or water but your post-float glow, too.
