Boundaries were redefined and sometimes eliminated when “The Twilight Zone,” a classic science fiction TV series, arrived on the airwaves in the 1960s. It allowed viewers to explore new dimensions of sight and sound – opening the door to new ideas and new worlds.
It can be said that floating in an isolation tank operates on the same plane.
Floating offers an experience as unique as each person that steps inside the isolation tank. People who are frequent floaters may feel like they are entering another dimension because of the effects floating has on their bodies and minds.
What can it do? Floating can make it seem almost as if a person has left their body while traveling through their unconscious mind. It can evoke feelings similar to an out-of-body experience. Images, sounds and smells are all around a floater that feel as real as anything in the real world. Physical boundaries seem to disappear as they become more and more relaxed and enter their own personal “Twilight Zone.”
Isolation tanks are helpful in removing physical and mental barriers that block a person from finding inner peace and happiness. Going from the tangible, real world to a realm of simple thoughts, feelings and energy can give new definitions to our senses.
What we experience on the subconscious level is more powerful than battling imaginary aliens or traveling on fictional starships. Floaters can become aware of thoughts they never knew they had. They can truly cross a barrier and explore strange new worlds within their deepest mind.
It creates a whole new meaning to entering “The Twilight Zone” when you apply it to floating.
