I had no idea what relaxing meant until today.
Near what I could only assume as the end of the float I tried chanting and I was so relaxed I couldn't even chant. I was entering in and out of
altered states of consciousness throughout the entire 1 hour experience.
Here is a picture of exactly the one I was in..
There were little speakers I could turn on or off and I choose to have about ten minutes of some mantra in order to relax because it was my first
time, I recommend against that and just going in there into total darkness.
At first I began having the light streamers and dots, and squiggly lines you get at times during meditation or when your almost asleep at night but as
the outside world began to dissolve away it almost immediately began to become an inward experience. I know there is another way to define that with a
single word but I can't think of it right now I think it's because I'm to relaxed still to be honest with you, kind of not caring really.
So anyway one of the observations I had was that as I was sliding into deeper states I would immediately be brought back into the "real" world by a
specific kind of thought, ego thoughts. This realization brought into an entirely new paradigm of thinking while I was in there. I began thinking
about how the ego thought was bringing me out of deeper states and how ego thinking was effecting the world and keeping us in this primal, alpha,
Darwinian experience that we're having on this planet right now. I began thinking how the ego thinking was holding back humanity and how we need to
each individually within ourselves destroy the ego and eliminate it's presence from this world in order to manifest a deeper, brighter more connected
I also had a self realization while I was in another altered state of consciousness later on in what I can only describe as the trip. I realized that
I need to stop trying to control everything and let things happen more. I am still contemplating this as that was a deeper thought I hadn't have
thought about before. I realize this is another manifestation of the ego and how the ego is holding me back from experiencing a better world.
When I got out of the tank I had come to the full realization of how deep and relaxing the experience was when I had to actually use my body, see and
Overall the experience was a amazing and I will be adding this into my weekly routine or bi weekly routine at the very least. I highly recommend it
for any of you spiritually inclined.
