Coping with Sensory Overload

By Amitabh Swetta
In Today’s urban day we are being bombarded with unprecedented amount of information. Check this out…

We wake up, immediately pick up our phone, check our social media feed (information) on our smartphones, go for a shower, come out read our newspapers (information) and have our breakfast, get out for work, turn our car on and start the radio (information), roads are filled with Hoardings and signage (information), work and gather information from Google in that process, you head back from work in car Radio, signage and hoardings plus phone feed… come home watch Television (information), read or listen to something (information). Moreover the smells, sounds, touches are feeding in a whole lot of data input continuously into the central nervous system.

What is this Sensory overload doing to us?

The brain of a mature adult really cannot over absorb things. At some points it experiences fatigue. Wherever the excesses occur, there is always signal… call it lack of concentration and-or headache, stress, anxiety, whatever, it always comes.

Imagine this, turn on 25 applications on your phone. After a few minutes your phone will slow down and after a bit more time it might hang. What would you do in such a response from your phone? You would go ahead and reset you phone. This is the same response you get in your brain (Bio computer) when you are flooded with information for a long period of time.

 

 Wouldn’t you like a reset sometimes?A true R.E.S.T.? If you are still with me … Welcome to the world of Floating.

What is a Float Therapy?

A float Therapy is known by many acronyms. I.e. Float, floatation therapy, R.E.S.T. (Restrictive environmental stimulus therapy), Sensory Deprivation Tank

It’s a Pod/ room/ tank filled with about 2000 liters of water and about 750 Kg’s of Epsom salt is added to the mix.

Lie down inside and firstly you escape gravity….

A mixture of 35% Epsom salt in water, releases you from the bondage of the gravitational force and you become buoyant… effortlessly.

Imagine a space where gravity does not exist, your muscles relax totally, your bones and ligaments start to relax, your neuro-chemical and bio-chemical feedback gets a free flow, Your Central nervous system now starts firing perfectly, opening up the Para sympathetic nerves, calming you down, Opening up new neural pathways for you to utilize while making you sharper and clearer in your thought process, you can now let that tense neck relax and let go off all the tensions we carry on our spine bringing it to its natural state.

Now, the first sensory input and the largest one by far… The Eyes. Our eyes accumulate about 50% of the information that is around us. Everything that we see is computed inside our bio computer (the brain) 50 % of it is through our eyes.

In total darkness of the float therapy you shut out 50% information of the brain to start giving it a true R.E.S.T.

A meditator relates to this always by shutting the eyes to the outside world Or Indian and Buddhist sages do their meditations in dark caves for this specific reason.

When you shut the lights out whenever you feel comfy and if you don’t feel comfortable then keep the lights on and just shut your eyes through the session. There is always another session to shut the lights out and experience new boundaries of tranquility.

So most of the float centers provide you with disposable earplugs so that you immerse your ears safely in water and let go off that sensory input which is a switched on mode 24X7. Try to understand that these amazing ears are tuned in to absorb information even if you are sleeping. Once you let your self immerse in the water, the auditory input now is reduced and you start relaxing even further listening to your heart beating and the sound of your breath.

And the thoughts come and go… as you understand not to hold on to them and let them come or go, or focus and hold a specific thought to get answers from the innermost depths of unimaginable and amazing bio computer of yours.

The warm liquid is heated exactly to our body temperature and you now cannot distinguish where the body ends and where the water begins… you start dissolving…. Little by little you disappear… resting in an unimaginable space and time bubble.

The music comes on at the end of the desired session… as we turn the lights on…

And we lie in a warm fuzzy feeling from inside.

The world around us starts to come back, and now we are being reborn as if we were floating in a mothers’ womb. Get out and you are welcomed by gravity. And you head for the shower. You look at yourself and there is a certain glow from the inside…. And you understand the amazing capabilities of the float…

Its always advisable to sit in silence after you float for about 10 min. so that you can express and absorb to yourself about how amazing this session was ….

Mantras: Ascend , evolve, elevate

Welcome to the 1000 Petals blog
: By Sharaha Amitabh

In Its literal meaning the word Mantra Means ‘ Revealed Sound’. The ‘ beej’ Mantras are the primordial sounds which develop without a language barrier in the ancient times. Oldest Reference of Beej mantras are found in the old Vedic scriptures, which are more than 8,000 years old.
It is said that these sounds were revealed to the seekers (Rishis) and other psychic beings where their consciousness itself had expanded with deep meditation and nothing but the sound was revealed with the inner light.

So what is a Beej Mantra?

A mantra is a spoken vibration of sound. A Beej Mantra does not have any specific meaning. But its power is not in the words, but in the sound vibrations it creates when the mantra is uttered verbally or when it’s generated in the mind where it starts resonating first.

How do Mantras work?

Now imagine this… if I kept a glass of water in front of a huge speaker and turned the music on, of course the water will vibrate with the sound frequency.
We know scientifically that we are made of 70 Percent water. Then why wont we vibrate if at all the sound is generated within us itself?

These vibrations in turn help your chakras or the energy centers to tune and resonate perfectly. They also align the chakras perfectly if practiced with diligence (totality).

Mantra brings a state of balance and resonance between the individual and the depths of his inner being. They allow the individual to unleash inner cosmic powers, forces and knowledge. The sound patterns of the mantra stimulate a certain effect on the mental, physical and psychic nature of an individual. Each mantra will create, or draw out, a specific symbol within one’s psyche.

Are beej Mantras Religious Practice?

There are two important points in regards to mantras that should be taken into account. Firstly, mantra should never be misunderstood to be the name of a particular god of a particular religion. There should be no conflict between your religion and mantra. Many people think they cannot repeat Om Namah Shivaya because they would be reciting the name of a Hindu god when they are Christian or Muslim.
Secondly, a mantra cannot be translated. Translation alters the sound. Even though mantras are found in Hinduism, in Buddhism, Catholicism, in Islam and among the Parsis and other religions and sects, they are never translated. If you change the succession and order of the sounds, the mantra ceases to be a mantra. If you translate the words you may have a very beautiful prayer, but not a mantra.

How much And when ?


Mantras for spiritual evolution must be practiced for a set amount of time every day. If the mantra is repeated too much, it will affect the whole system, and those who are very psychic, sensitive, unstable, or subject to hallucinations, may not be prepared for that at all. If you regularly repeat the mantra for ten minutes daily, within a few days you will know if you are oversensitive and whether the mantra is impressing your mind to a larger of lesser extent.

To know the exact amount of time for the recital please get your chakra analysis done at @1000 Petals. With the chakra analysis you will come to know which chakra you need to work more on.

15 tips to make our mother earth happy again

By Amitabh Swetta

 

We are at a point of time on this planet where we have damaged it to write our own extinction. Its time to wake up and do something for the mother earth in return. As we are living on this planet and feeding off it consistently, it’s our Duty to see towards it that we save and nurture her.
We made a list of a few things that can change the footprint of ours to save this beautiful blue rock in space.

They say charity begins at home but we @1000Petals Say, it begins at home. And trust us this charity actually will save you money than giving it away.

So lets begin a change from improving and making our home green and make a positive impact on this earth.

 

  1. Replace all the bulbs to LED:

You will save 66% by replacing incandescent bulbs to LED bulbs. It will save the earth of 400 pounds of greenhouse effects.

  1. Use extension Leads:

 

By using extension leads and turning them off when not in use can save your home’s energy consumption by 15%.

  1. Unplug your TV

TV’s are typically kept on standby for about 17 hours a day. Remember to switch it off from the plug point.

  1. Open the blinds

Open the blinds and let the light in. Natural light lifts mood, makes you more productive and saves a lot of unnecessary consumption of electricity.

  1. Buy recycled toilet paper

  1. Get a spider plant

The spider plant removes bacteria from the air and actually cleans the air. A spider plant in every room will make your home bacteria free and clean.

  1. Fix leaky taps.

Fixing leaky taps not only save you water bills but also can reduce the power consumption issue to clean and pump the water back to you.

  1. Get rid of mosquitoes naturally.

https://www.furtherfarms.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/citronella-oil.jpg

Having a citronella and Lemon grass in your home can reduce the mosquito trouble in urban areas. Grow these plants just outside your windows and see mossies’ disappear.

  1. Plant a tree

Plant and adopt a small sapling and nurture it to become a large tree. We can talk about saving the earth but the steps you take, will actually take will save this planet for the generations to come.

  1. Stop using print unless absolutely necessary

Start using the electronic mediums to share rather than printing on paper. Saves us a lot of trees.

  1. Carry your water bottle.

Carrying your water bottle and filling it at a restaurant or wherever there is a filter available saves the planet from the plastic bottle usage we have become accustomed to. Drop this silly habit at once to save the beautiful planet we live on.

  1. Say no to Straw

Buy a steel straw and avoid plastic straws at all costs. Most of these straws and plastics are damaging the environment in a very big way. #NOSTRAW

  1. Carpool

Try to use public transport or carpool if you are alone. This extremely effective way can help the planet by reducing emissions.

  1. Go on an electronic diet.

    In place of TV and the stereo, spend time reading, writing, drawing, telling stories, and making music.

 

  1. Pray, visualize, hope, meditate, and dream.

Visualize, Hope, meditate dream for a green pollution free sustainable planet.

Yoga 101: Methods of yoga for beginners

Those  who are new to yoga (and those who’ve been practicing for a longer duration), there are a lot of different yoga styles to understand what they are. Read further to understand a bit more about the different styles and what benefits they can offer you, so that you can understand the know how’s of what’s what in a class. Remember, each style will be different depending on the teacher so it’s also great to try a few until you find the teachers and classes that you love.

Try to understand that Yoga is not about clicking pictures while posing, but its an internal practice to prepare your body for meditation.

The Great enlightened master Patanjali was the great inner scientist of the inner world and founder of the system of yoga. Patanjali codified, or compiled in a systematic way, the art and science of Yoga in the Yoga Sutras. The Yoga Sutras succinctly outlines the art and science of Yoga for Self-Realisation. Patanjali is known as the ‘Father of Yoga’ because every yoga system, in the thousands of systems that are available today all over the world have their roots in Patanjali’s teachings.The methods described in the Yoga Sutras were being practiced as early as 3000 B.C.

The basics

In yoga, we need to bring our attention to the breath and focus inward. It is essentially an exercise connecting the breath to our mind and physical movement (body ) and the spirit. The Asanas ( postures) and postures such as sun salutations are evident across all styles. If you haven’t yet done yoga, then its always better to join classes of each styles and then asses what works for you the best. Try to attend a class for at least 12 sessions to understand and feel the changes within you. Because remember ‘ Once is not enough’ ( read the article to understand why )

Hatha

Hatha yoga is the perfect practice to start with. It is a series of simple and gentle asanas which are more static than some other styles such as Ashtanga or Vinyasa. These lengthen and strengthen the body and are designed to open physical self, improve flexibility, build self-esteem, release emotional turmoil and expand your sense of self-awareness and connection with your body. In this amazing stye of yoga, eyes can be kept closed to reduce distraction and help you be present in the moment. You can Get in touch With Namratha @Nikaya Yoga. We host this style of yoga @ 1000 Petals, Indiranagar, Bangalore.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa Flow classes flow continuously through basic yoga poses. The style is flowing and fluid. It connects the breath to movement and is designed to improve flexibility, strength and mindfulness. Vinyasa is the perfect style to choose if you have been practicing Hatha yoga and are looking for something more energetic. The difference between Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga is that Vinyasa Flow doesn’t follow the same sequence of postures while Ashtanga does.

Yin

In Yin yoga, you move slowly through the asanas (postures) holding them for extended periods of time. By doing so, you turn your focus inwards, breathing deeply and meditating in pose. Yin yoga classes often use props such as blocks and blankets to support you in your poses. It’s the perfect choice to de-stress, reduce anxiety and recharge. Our Yin classes always finish with a short meditation to restore your focus and leave you feeling refreshed and in tune with your mind and body.   Get in touch with our friend Sanjana at Nikaya Yoga to book yourself a class at Smriti Nandan, Palace road Bangalore.

Ashtanga

Ashtanga is a faster practice of set postures flowing from one to another with strength and grace. The original flow practice from India, other similar styles, such as Vinyasa Flow (above) and Power Yoga are influenced and inspired from this traditional method. Ashtanga follows a fixed number of postures, carried out in the same order, focusing on connecting the breath (pranayama) to the movement (vinyasa). Due to the fast-paced nature of the style and the deep focus on the breath, it can be a challenging practice for those not familiar with it, however, it’s incredibly rewarding and improves your strength and stamina. 

Iyengar – Based on the teachings of the Master Yogi B.K.S Iyengar, this style of practice is most concerned with bodily alignment. In yoga, the word alignment is used to describe the precise way in which your body should be positioned in each pose in order to obtain the maximum benefits and avoid injury. Iyengar practice usually emphasizes holding poses over long periods versus moving quickly from one pose to the next (flow). Also, Iyengar practice encourages the use of props, such as yoga blankets, blocks and straps, in order to bring the body into alignment.

Sivananda – The first Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center was founded in 1959 by Swami Vishnu-devananda, a disciple of Swami Sivananda. There are now close to 80 locations worldwide, including several ashram retreats. Sivananda yoga is based upon five principles: Proper exercise (Asana, focusing on 12 poses in particular); Proper breathing (Pranayama); Proper relaxation (Savasana); Proper diet (Vegetarian); Positive thinking (Vedanta) and meditation (Dhyana). Get In touch with our friend @alk Esh to understand more about the same.

Power Yoga – is a general term used in the West to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. Though many consider it to be “gym yoga,” this style of practice was originally closely modeled on the Ashtanga method. The term came into common usage in the mid-1990s from USA born Bender Birchin, a qualified Ashtanga yoga teacher, to make Ashtanga yoga more accessible to western students, though, unlike Ashtanga, power yoga does not follow a set series of poses, so classes can vary widely. With its emphasis on strength and flexibility, power yoga brought yoga into the gyms of America, as people began to see yoga as a way to work out. (Please understand that you should be practicing this style only after 6 months of traditional yoga practice)

Restorative yoga

Restorative yoga is a gentle and slow-paced style with a focus on helping you relax, recharge and restore your mind and body. Incorporated within the style is deep breathing, relaxation techniques and light poses. It’s a beautiful style to help you de-stress and achieve a sense of balance. You’ll come away feeling calm and light in both mind and body.

The yoga styles we’ve outlined are the most prevalent styles. The most important tip is just to start. Book into a class and discover how the experience feels. You’ll experience the greatest benefits when practicing consistently. So don’t give up after one class, continue on with your practice to really understand how it can improve your everyday life and overall wellbeing.

Attract Abundance Now!!!

Everything in the universe is linked, including nature and individual people. Universal laws operate at all times, affecting all things. The universe intends for everyone to have the best possible outcomes, whether this is happiness, achievements or material abundance. The goal is for people to live a fulfilling and satisfying life.

  1. Have Clear Intentions

Work out in which areas of life you want to start receiving abundance. You must be clear about your goals and have a strong wish to make it happen. Motivation and determination are key aspects. Set your intentions in clear and positive terms. You can focus on any area of your life, but it is perhaps better to focus on one area at a time to prevent confusion.

  1. Think Positively

Like attracts like, so positive thoughts will attract positive outcomes. Similarly though, negative thoughts will attract negative outcomes.

Negative feelings act as a block and prevent abundance. Fear, anxiety, stress, pessimism, sadness, jealousy and resentment can all stop people from receiving abundance. It is vital that these feelings are released in order to attract abundance in any form. Meditation can help to focus on the present, which in turn can help people to rid themselves of negative feelings and have a more positive outlook on life.

  1. Use Visualisations

Visualise vividly how your life will be with the things you desire. Imagine having them right now, in the present moment. Picture yourself clearly, allow yourself to really feel having them.

For More Techniques on Abundance and positivity Feel Free to Connect with us here >>>>    http://1000petals.in/courses.html

  1. Use Affirmations

Use affirmations to keep your desires focused. Repeat them on a regular basis. Believe that your dreams have already been realised when you say your affirmations. Perhaps write down your thoughts on post it notes and place them in prominent places around your home to constantly remind you of your positive wishes.

  1. Do Not Think About the “How”

Do not think about how you want things to happen. This can limit the ways that the universe works to create reality. Instead, focus on the end result and leave the how to greater forces.

  1. Do Not Set a Time Frame

Do not set a time limit for abundance to manifest. Set your intention, keep that intention, and know that it will happen at the right time. Keep an open mind about when and how your dreams will be realised.

For More Techniques on Abundance and positivity Feel Free to Connect with us here >>>>    http://1000petals.in/courses.html

  1. Be Generous

Think about ways that you can give something to the world without expecting anything in return. Sending out the impression of abundance creates a sense of existing abundance that will attract like back to you. Expect to receive in return, although not explicitly from the source that you gave to. You can give money, perhaps by making a charitable donation. You can help someone in need, for example by giving directions to somebody who is lost in an unfamiliar town. You could show love, kindness and compassion to someone in distress. There are many ways that you can give.

Do not break the flow of abundance. Instead of keeping a tight hold on anything that you receive, allow some to pass on to others. Be generous with the world and the world will be generous with you.

  1. Take Positive Action

Take positive action to help your dreams come true. If you see opportunities, chase them. Yu cannot just sit back and expect things to just happen; some input from you is required. Life will present opportunities which you must seize and pursue.

For More Techniques on Abundance and positivity Feel Free to Connect with us here >>>>    http://1000petals.in/courses.html

 

  1. Have Self-Belief

Really believe deep inside that you can achieve anything that you intend to achieve. Have confidence and an unwavering will.

  1. Show Gratitude

Stop focusing on what you perceive to be lacking and be grateful for what you actually do have right now. Also, be grateful for all that you do receive. Do not forget to say thank you and express sincere gratitude.

  1. Look for Coincidences

Pay close attention to seemingly coincidental events; there are no coincidences and everything happens for a reason. You must learn to interpret and act on things that present to you.

  1. Allow Yourself to Receive

Do not resist things from happening. Stay in a state of allowing. Adopt an attitude that allows you to receive things.

The MOST effective technique for meditation

Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realise some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content or as an end in itself.

Its Simple and easy… but generally it is us who complicate things for ourselves dwelling into too much knowledge. We read umpteen number of books on meditation and all the books have many different techniques. And now, the mind starts complicating things and starts thinking that this is right and that wrong.

Remember, Meditation is absolute relaxation and not Concentration.

Here is where the Talk should stop and meditation should begin.

Follow these instructions and let us know how you feel after your first ever Meditation with us :

1. Sitting upright or lying down, place your hands on your belly.

2. Slowly breathe in, expanding your belly, to the count of five.

3. Pause.

4. Slowly breathe out to the count of six.

5. Work your way up to practicing this pattern for 10 to 20 minutes a day.

6. Let the thoughts come and go… if you forget to breathe this way and the thought becomes more prominent, Don’t feel guilty… Simply return back to breathing

There is nothing More …

Lucia N03 : Illuminate from within

Have you  heard of this evolutionary light technology that helps you reach a deep sense of meditation? … Which takes you as deep as expert meditators who have meditated 15 to 20 years? or you are completely new to words like ‘hypnagogic light experience’ and ‘lucid light therapy.’?  Well here is your break down on what the lucia light machine, its  benefits and what to expect from it.

What is Lucia Light Therapy?

 Lucia Light is a neurostimulator that combines flickering light with a constant light. This computer-controlled machine layers the lights by combining different speeds, frequencies and intensities to guide your experience. There are 8 LEDs And one halogen lamp in the centre of the Lucia Light machine .

How does Lucia Light Therapy work?

The light triggers the extremely important, pineal gland, cleansing it with photon energy of the light to produce mind-activating hormones that help enhance creativity, influences circadian rhythms and production of melatonin. Records and studies show that the viewer experiences a sense of deep relaxation and high level of concentration while undergoing the therapy.

What is the Pineal Gland and why does it need stimulation?

The Pineal gland is a small, pea sized gland located in the center of the human brain. ask a few doctors and they say its a dormant gland… WRONG!!! Its functions in fact include: regulating hormonal, reproductive and sleep cycles, while also creating and releasing Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). DMT is integral to our visionary experiences, psychic and dreams. On a spiritual level, the Pineal is believed to be the ‘third eye’ gateway to the higher consciousness and  awakening psychic senses. The Ajna Chakra in the Hindu Mythology, better known as a Third Eye is not mystical but intact a reality.

Unfortunately there are things in our every day lives that calcify and affect the functionality of the Pineal gland. By the time of adulthood; fluoride, mercury, refined food, pesticides, sugar, alcohol, tobacco and coffee contribute to calcification of the gland.

The regular cleansing of the Pineal gland is extremely important for us human beings as it improves our focus, concentration and lets us peak into the DNA of the soul. Working with the Pineal gland has shown amazing amazing results

What can you expect from Lucia Light?

The nature of the light is that every experience is different as it activates a transcendental experience and triggers the same positive effects as playing sport, using entheogenic substances or near-death experiences.

The Seven Scientific Theories of float Therapy

Floating is commonly referred to as Floatation Therapy or Sensory Deprivation. It involves lying in a pod with 10 inches of water containing a highly concentrated Epsom salt solution (600kg of magnesium sulphate) which creates the buoyancy for you to float effortlessly. The water is heated to your skin temperature so after a while the sensation of your body dissolves and you feel weightless.

The Float Pod is both sound and light proof which gives your brain the chance to disconnect from the constant bombardment of sensory input and enhance your ability to be cognitive, mindful and introspective. The Epsom salt solution contains essential minerals that leave you feeling deeply relaxed and vibrant as the tension in your body melts away and your body releases amazing energy. There is simply no other technology or environment that can stimulate these evolutionary effects.

Book Your Float Session Here >>>> http://1000petals.in/rest.html

1. THE ANTIGRAVITY EXPLANATION

The buoyancy afforded by the dense Epsom salt solution eliminates the body’s specific gravity, bringing the floater close to an experience of total weightlessness. Gravity, which has been estimated to occupy 90 percent of all central nervous system activity, is probably the single largest cause of human health problems – the bad backs, sagging abdomens, aching feet, painful joints, and muscular tension that result from our unique but unnatural upright posture. This theory asserts that, by freeing our brain and skeletal system from gravity, floating liberates vast amounts of energies and large areas of the brain to deal with matter of mind, spirit, and enhanced awareness of internal states.

2. THE BRAIN WAVE EXPLANATION

More interesting than the well known alpha waves generated by the brain in moments of relaxation, are the slower theta waves, which are accompanied by vivid memories, free association, sudden insights, creative inspiration, feeling of serenity and oneness with the universe. It is a mysterious, elusive state, potentially highly productive and enlightening; but experimenters have had a difficult time studying it, and it is hard to maintain, since people tend to fall asleep once they begin generate theta waves. One way of learning to produce theta waves is to perfect the art of meditation. A study of Zen monks conducted by Akira Kazamatsu and Tomio Hirai, in which the monks’ brain-waves were charted as they entered the meditative states, indicated that the four meditative plateau’s (from alpha to the more sublime theta) “were parallel to the disciples’ mental states, and their years spent in Zen training.” Those monks with over twenty years of meditative experience generated the greatest amount of theta, the monks were not asleep but mentally alert. However, since many of us are unwilling to spend twenty years of mediation to learn to generate theta waves, it’s helpful to know that several recent studies (at Texas A&M and the University at Colorado) have shown that floating increases production of theta waves. Floaters quickly enter the theta state while remaining awake, consciously aware of all the vivid imagery and creative thoughts that pass through their minds, and after getting out of the flotation environment, floaters continue to generate larger amounts of creativity-promoting theta waves for up to three weeks.

3. THE LEFT-BRAIN RIGHT-BRAIN EXPLANATION

The two hemispheres or the neocortex operate in fundamentally different modes. The left hemisphere excels at detail, processing information that is small-scale, requiring fine resolution: it operates analytically, by splitting or dissection. The right hemisphere on the other hand, is good at putting all the pieces together. It operates by pattern recognition – visually, intuitively rapidly absorbing large scale information. Just as in the sunshine of a bright day it is impossible to see the stars, so are the subtle contents of the right hemisphere usually drowned out by the noisy chattering of the dominant verbal/analytical left brain, whose qualities are the more cultivated and valued in our culture. But recent research indicates that floating increases right-brain (or minor hemisphere) function. Floating turns off the external stimuli, plunges us into literal and figurative darkness – then suddenly the entire universe of stars and galaxies is spread out before our eyes. Or as brain researcher Dr. Thomas Budzynski of the University of Colorado put it, “In a flotation environment, the right hemisphere comes out and says, ‘Whoopee”.

4. THE THREE BRAIN EXPLANATION.

In a series of seminal studies produced over the last twenty-five years, Paul MacLean, chief brain researcher at the National Institute for Mental Health (US), has produced convincing evidence that the human brain has three separate physiological layers, each corresponding to a stage in our evolutionary history. In this “Triune Brain Theory,” the most ancient layer is called the reptile brain, and it controls basic self-preservative, reproductive and life sustaining functions. Sitting atop the reptile, brain is the iambic system, which MacLean had dubbed the visceral brain, because generates all our emotions. The most recent part of the brain to develop is the “thinking cap” of convoluted gray matter called neocortex, seat of our abstract, cognitive functions; memory, intellect, language, and consciousness. While many of these three separate brains have overlapping functions they are all quite different in chemistry, structure, action, and style. Three brains should be better than one, but unfortunately, due to a ruinous design error, there is insufficient communication and coordination between the neocortex and the two older levels. This lack of communication results in a chronic dissociation between the higher and lower brains, which MacLean calls schizaphysiology, and which we experience in the form of conflicting drives – unconscious and conscious, savage and civilized, lusty and loving, ritualistic and symbolic, rational and verbal. There are times when the levels do act in harmony, as in peak experiences when body and mind unite in exhilarating moments of vitality, when our actions come effortlessly, spontaneously. But it’s hard to predict when these perfect moments will occur. Now there is evidence that suggests that, due to heightened internal awareness and decreased physical arousal, floating increases the vertical organization of the brain, enhancing communication and harmony between the separate levels. Floating, it has been hypothesized, can provide us with peak experiences almost at will.

5. THE NEUROCHEMICAL EXPLANATION

Neuroscientists have recently discovered the brain is an endocrine organ that secretes numerous neurochemicals which influence our behavior. Our brains secrete hormones that make us happy, anxious, depressed, shy, sleepy, sexy. Each of us creates different amounts of these various neurochemicals, and those who create, for example, more endorphins – natural opiates – experience more pleasure as a result of a given experience than those who create fewer endorphins. Tests indicate that floating increased the secretion of endorphins at the same time as it reduces the levels of a number of stress-related neurochemicals, such as adrenaline, nordpinephrine, ACTH, and cortisol – substances that can cause tension, anxiety, irritability, and are related to ailments such as heart disease, hypertension and high levels of cholesterol. One other neurochemical theory is the “return of the womb” explanation. Since pregnant women produce up to eight times the normal endorphin levels, the foetus experiences true prenatal bliss. When a floater is suspended in the dense, warm solution, enclosed in darkness, body pulsing rhythmically and brain pumping out endorphins, it’s possible that subconscious memories are stirred and profoundly deep associations called up. It is no coincidence that at least one commercial float center is named “The Womb Room.”

6. THE BIOFEEDBACK EXPLANATION

Because of biofeedback research (including Johns Hopkin’s researcher John Basmajian’s conclusive study of subjects consciously firing off single motor-unit neurons), we now know that humans can learn to exercise conscious control over virtually every cell in their bodies. Processes long thought to be involuntary, such as the rhythm and amplitude of our brain waves, healing, blood pressure, the rate or force of heart contractions, respiratory rate, smooth-muscle tension, and the secretion of hormones and neurotransmitters are now thought to be controllable. The way biofeedback machines work is by enhancing concentration’, by focusing on a single, subtle change in the body, which is being amplified by the machine, we are able to shut off our awareness of the external environment. This shutting-off of external stimuli is exactly what the flotation environment does best – almost as if in an “organic” biofeedback machine, in the tank every physical sensation is magnified, and because there is no possibility of outside distraction, we are able to relax deeply and focus at will upon any part or system of the body.

 

7. THE HOMEOSTASIS EXPLANATION

The human body has an exquisitely sensitive self-monitoring and self-regulating system that is constantly working to maintain the body in homeostasis – an optimal state of balance, harmony, equilibrium and stability. Considered in these terms, we can define stress as a disruption of our internal equilibrium, a disturbance of our natural homeostasis. Research now indicates that many of floating’s most powerful effects come from its tendency to return the body to a state of homeostasis. When we view the mind and body as a single system, it becomes clear that external stimuli are constantly militating against the system’s equilibrium, every noise, every degree of temperature above or below the body’s optimal level, every encounter with other people, everything we see and feel can disrupt our homeostasis. But when we enter the tank, we abruptly stop making constant adjustments to outer stimuli. Since there are no external threats, no pressures to adapt to outside events, the system can devote all its energies to restoring itself. The normal state, of course, is health, vigour, enthusiasm, and immense pleasure in being alive.
