Reliving the first time I floated in 2018
I have been using a Float Tank for the last week. I experienced my first float on Sunday and it was a life changing experience.
My body has never been so calm. If you know me I don't stop moving unless I'm in my depressive point in the year. At one point I couldn't feel my limbs but especially my legs and feet. They're the main source of my pain. It is a type of calm I've never been able to duplicate. Not massages, therapy, swimming, exercising nothing.
My mind has allowed me to fall asleep everytime. Float away to a place in my brain where I keep all my pain and life I hide away. I've woken up crying, laughing, saying no, as fzzwell as calmly waking up to weird noises.
I've now floated 5 times and mentally it's been the best week in a very very long time. I want to sleep it's not something my body is making me do. I want to do things. I want to be creative at work. I want to do life daily.
I reccomend floating for anyone. I didn't think I could do it. But no sounds, lights or visual stimulation has been the best for me.
