I came in today feeling crazy. There was stress and anxiety oozing from my being.
I procrastinated going into the float tank because I saw it as a straight jacket – my medicine journey. The long hot shower was my initiation into beingness. Ahh so soothing.
I blessed my journey and entered the tank.
Silence. Yum. I felt my adrenal glands pulsating. Why was I so stressed? Because I got into an argument the night before and had a nightmare about it. The traumatic effects were still lingering along my spine.
One breath at a time I let go. I even stretched around to help my focus come into my body.
With each breath the Epsom salts metabolized into my body, soothing, releasing and comforting.
Within a few moments I was back to myself, back to my core and back in my breath – the breath.
I exited the float tank a new woman and my old self. Another long and hot shower and a glass of water sent me out into the world nourished, inspired and alive.
Sending loving vibrations.
