Floating and the Mind

quieter you become the more you are able to hear
” – Rumi

People say the last
frontier is a mastery of the mechanics of the mind and I couldn’t agree more
with that statement. We are just beginning to crack the surface of the depth
that is the human mind and the consciousness that illuminates it. That’s what gets me excited for the
future. Here in the present, a majority of global societies face a daily
struggle in taking the time to really slow down and rest in a peaceful, non
stimulating environment. Enter flotation therapy.

Less Distraction, More Achievement

you are set up in a physical space that limits your sensory experience, it
creates an environment where you are free from distraction. Putting yourself in
an environment like that can cause these incredible after effects that will
keep you coming back to float, again and again. Some of these effects include
mental clarity and acute awareness. You will feel energized and ready to move
forward on goals, tasks and important projects that need the attention they
deserve. With less distraction for a weekly 60 minute float session, you can
achieve more in your daily life.

Big Waves, Big Healing

            The brain’s activity is categorized into four different wave states:
alpha, beta, theta and delta. In both the alpha and beta states, your brain
waves are small and rapid and you are cognitive. In theta and delta, or the
sleep states, your brain waves start to grow larger and further apart. In these
sleep states, your body and mind go through an incredibly restorative process
that helps one to heal. When you float, your brain waves slow down into these
theta and delta states, meaning more opportunity to provide the body with
change to deeply heal itself. The simple practice of very slow, deep breathing
greatly aids this process of slowing down both the heart rate and frequency of
brain waves. Next time you float, try it out to see for yourself how the
breath, heart and mind are all connected.

The mind is a piece of the puzzle that has a lot
of moving compartments to it, many that we may never understand, but the more
we understand about the mind, the more we begin to understand the nature of
ourselves and our capacity to heal. Just what kind of role will floating have
in the future of discovering these uncharted territories of the mind? We’ll
just have to wait and see.
