THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS … FLOATING MAKES ME A BETTER HUMAN.
IT DOES THIS BY SHOWING ME HOW TO LOVE.
When I lean into the question…Why do I float, I feel overwhelmed…but like in EVERY good way possible. It is because floating creates the space where the most attractive option is to get real and raw. Where there is no requirement to package the emotion, the thought, the judgement into something digestible for everyone else. It just presents itself to be seen. It matches you every time with your truth in that moment. This is what I have secretly wanted and have feared my whole life. To be seen; to be heard. (yes, that includes self photos in newsletters and writing personal articles;). Inside the tank, that is all that exists as true connection demands nothing less than being completely authentic. Get naked. Get vulnerable. And then… trust the pathway to fall in love with it.
FLOATING THROUGH THE EYES OF A FLOAT STUDIO OWNER….
I am in AWE, literally mesmerized by what happens here every day…EVERY SINGLE DAY! I honestly feel I am one of the luckiest people on this most amazing planet to be in service and witness people changing their lives right in front of my eyes.. Through the doors of One Love Float, I have witnessed physical breakthroughs while suspended in the salty love of the tanks, emotional exploration and even a wedding proposal! I love lending an excited ear to hear stories of subtle and most profound insights from inside the tank acting as a gentle nudge or much needed shove to follow the heart.
Authentic connection…this is one of my most favorite places to hang out with others.
SO, WHY DO I HAVE A REGULAR FLOAT PRACTICE?
It is about “leveling-up” like Mario style, you know…where you gain experience “star” points and grow to higher levels. It simply shows up for me. It is the lesson to show up for oneself. Floating has literally integrated itself for me into a lifestyle to be part of the magic instead of the observer. This is having the courage to step into operating from my authentic self; to be seen; to be heard. Floating gives me the time to listen and to trust. It is being able to respond instead of react. this means holding a moment as long as it needs in order to be fully experienced. In those moments, I can choose to be a better Mom, friend, partner, guide, or whatever is needed in that moment. It grounds me to live more authentically, into the knowing that love is always the answer and to have gratitude for it all.
So what does one do with all those new “star” experience points? Well, you gain new skills, you have deeper understandings and you start to see things differently… you start leveling up; being a better human…that’s why I float
