I had my second isolation tank experience on Sunday.
The tank is something that you have to take time to get good at. The first time is so much about adjusting to a completely foreign environment, learning not to bump against the edges of the tank, and let go. It’s not until the last ten minutes that you are actually able to submit to the experience and let it happen.
Your second time is still about that acclimation process - but much less so.
With more familiarity came the ability let go and explore my mental landscape with a sense of clarity and ease that’s just not available in the regular world. With that sense of clarity I was able to gain perspective on the dramas and goals that haunt my waking hours. Things that seemed like huge deals shrunk in size and became much more manageable. While things I had been ignoring, or put on my back burner - things like health, and diet grew in importance.
It was a valuable experience. One that I will come back to again.
