There are a multitude of reasons for going to a salt cave but the biggest reason for me was to bring a deeper connection between myself and mother earth whilst being in a silent surrounding. Studies have shown that salt therapy also helps with:
- Ear Infections
- Hay Fever
Last year I attended a guided meditation run by Anna Mason at the Salt Sanctuary and found it to be extremely grounding. The room was filled with energy. The room is salt from the flooring to the walls. Once we were settled in, we began our guided meditation journey. I always find that when meditating in a group it’s easier to increase your energy levels and connect with the Divine. The results are astounding since being in the room allows your breathing to improve and become easier. After the meditation we were then given some time to do our free form journal writing and writing whatever insights came through our intuition. Also side note – we’re doing all of this from comfy as chairs that have a slight recline so you can really relax.
We then did some eye gazing where I had quite a weird experience. It wasn’t my first time doing eye gazing (where you sit and look at another person intently so that you are both looking into each other’s souls). As I was looking into my buddy’s eyes the room became black and literally all I could see were her eyes. I couldn’t blink the blackness away – it just remained. After minutes of this weirdness – the blackness began to dissipate and I then saw my buddy’s face change into an old woman’s face who had a gentle smile and was just staring back at me. I didn’t tell my buddy anything after the eye gazing because I didn’t want to be a weirdo – but I did tell Anna after the session and she said in such a casual way “oh yeah – that was most likely one of her past lives coming through”. My response was utter shock. One of the other ladies overheard me asking the question and she also mentioned that it has happened to her a few times (as she had been a regular to these salt cave meditations).
Interestingly enough – I went to that meditation session with no expectations and yet walked away with a great experience!
Mind you – I went home straight away and tried to do eye gazing with my husband for ages to see if anything cool would happen – but nothing did #sadface
So when these moments happen, just let it flow, release expectations and know that there is no need to chase these ‘mystical’ events. It simply just ‘is’.
