Connections Between Floating and Spirituality

Floatation therapy can be a highly spiritual experience. Many people meditate while floating, but that’s not the only way to gain spiritual benefits. Others use floatation therapy to grow spiritually. These two aspects can be combined to complement each other in many ways.

Read Scripture

What you do right before floating impacts your mind’s focus during therapy. Before your next floating appointment, read a verse or chapter of scripture. Re-read it several times, so you comprehend the full meaning. Now, focus on those words while your mind is free of all other sensory stimulation. Let the words travel through your mind and body. Feel the meaning of the verse and its context within your life. Let it take on a new, deeper meaning.


If you pray to a higher being, consider doing this while floating. You can begin floating with a few prayer points on your mind, or you can let your heart guide you while floating. Speak sincerely, holding back nothing.

Give all your worries and concerns to your spiritual God. Ask for anything and everything you desire to live a better life. Pray for those around you, and ask for guidance in your own life.

Memorization and Mantras

Memorize a favorite passage or mantra. While floating, say the passage or mantra repeatedly. Say the words in your mind or out loud; the repetition aids in relaxation and entering a deep meditative state. Allow the words to drift out of your mind and become a part of you. Progress to just thinking them, and finally to feeling them.

Religious Figures

If you are interested in a particular religious figure, read books or articles about them to ponder purpose during your next floating experience. You may consider their entire life’s work or focus on one issue that was important to them.

Can you identify why he or she is a role model for you? Ask yourself what traits you share with this figure. This can improve self-esteem by realizing what you have in common. It can also motivate you to set goals for yourself and inspire you to end a bad habit or begin a healthy life choice.

    Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself. It’s the perfect time to reflect on your life, and reports of creative and personal insights abound. Float tanks can also be thought of as training wheels for meditation. After about 30-45 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that ‘between waking & sleeping’ state. After years of practice, people can enter theta state through deep meditation. Float tanks get you there effortlessly.
