For my first float I initially experimented with the light and music options, eventually deciding I preferred silence and darkness. My mind slowly quieted and I began to experience simply existing, without the daily distractions of the physical world. As time went on I began to see bursts of purple light that would slowly dissipate as the momentum of the explosion was lost. I felt as though I was gliding and sometimes even spinning through an endless field of emptiness. Although a bit overwhelming at first, the emptiness did not inspire a feeling of fear or loneliness. It created a feeling of freedom and serenity, as though the chains of worry and anxiety had been cut and I was free to drift off to where ever my soul wanted to take me.
