The Added benefit of Lucid Dreaming

Lucid dreaming is the conscious perception of one's state while dreaming, resulting in a much clearer experience and sometimes enabling direct control over the content of the dream. In other words dreaming while knowing that you are dreaming, you are in the driver's seat. Lucid dreaming in a float tank or float spa will give you a shortcut to lucid dreaming. And many clients remark how much more vivid their dreams are after a session in a floatation tank.


"I found the floatation tank to be an excellent tool to enhance lucid dreams, for those of us who are strong vivid dreamers or: oneironauts meaning dream sailors, it's even easier to control your dreams while in the tank. As a child I had lucid dreams more easily than as an adult. But in the last 9 months of floating on a regular basis my dreams have been much more lucid, and my ability for direct control over the content of the dream has increased dramatically."

Using the tank for Meditation

Within as little as 15 minutes, floating can induce a meditative state equivalent to that of a skilled mediator with many years experience in meditation technique.

Floating can be passive or active, depending on the purpose. For relaxation, one simply floats and 'clears the mind.' Active floating has many different techniques. One may perform meditation, mantras, self-hypnosis, utilize educational programs, etc. The idea of active floating is that, when the body is relaxed, the mind becomes highly suggestible and any action taken during these states will enter the information into the sub-conscious.

Long time mediators find floating in the float tanks a perfect tool to drop into a meditative state, in as little as 15 minutes you will be on your way to a deep meditative state.
