Here are a few tips on how to make the most of your experience in the Blu Room. Everyone has their own individual experience, so no two Blu Room sessions are exactly the same. However we know it is easy to fall into a pattern which although pleasant, may not be the best experience that you can have.
First and most important is to make sure you are comfortable. Remember to use the bathroom before your session even if you are feeling rushed. Your whole experience can be ruined if your bladder is nagging you. Attitudes and emotions are stored in our cells as chemicals. When they are released, those chemicals get flushed out of the body and are eliminated most often through urine which explains why many times after a Blu Room session you definitely need to visit the bathroom.
Second, make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing. Undo the button on tight waist bands and/or release your bra if it is restrictive. It is important that you can breathe freely. For those who need it, we have extra pillows to help you sit up more or to go under your legs as needed. Your comfort is very important to us. Don’t hesitate to ask for anything you need to make you more comfortable.
A few deep breaths
When you begin the session, start with a few deep relaxing breaths. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth if possible. See if you can breathe all the way down into your belly, allowing your belly to relax, rising and falling with the breathe. This deep focused breathing helps the body drop really fast into the parasympathetic system which takes you out of thinking mind.
After a few breaths, try breathing in the blue light and seeing it fill your whole body. While you are focusing on this there is no room for mundane thoughts. You will notice your fingertips beginning to warm or tingle. As you continue to breathe consciously, this feeling will spread through your entire body. You will be in a deep state of relaxation. This will take just a few minutes and will deepen your experience.
The deep state of relaxation
Once you are fully relaxed, bathed in ultra violet blue light from the outside and the inside, you can place an intention for your session. Popular intentions are health and wealth. Some people focus on going out of their body. Others find answers to ongoing problems or challenges in their life.
This deep state of relaxation allows us to access parts of the brain that we do not normally access in our daily waking lives. It allows us to bypass the frontal cortex, the part of the brain we use habitually. The neocortex holds all of our fixed opinions about our health, wealth, relationships, etc.
Our bodies respond to what we are thinking, so if our habitual thoughts of pain and suffering are interrupted, the body responds with feelings of wellbeing and healing is initiated. The longer we can maintain this state, the faster our bodies are able to fulfill the new program.
Room for creativity
This other part of the brain also allows for new and novel solutions to problems to rise to the surface. It allows for inspiration to come forward which increases our creativity.
It has been noted by many people that at first a Blu Room session affects the way we think for about 3-4 days, then the old habitual patterns begin to assert themselves. Regular sessions extend the benefits as the new program gets hardwired.
