It is sunday 3 of April 2016, 4 pm, we are at the AIDA French Freediving competition in Nîmes, and Xavier suggested I tried me to try the Janzu to relax after my trials. After a rapid briefing, it s time to go. I wear a wetsuit and some floats on my ankles to stay at the surface easily. My only purpose is to connect with water. I close my eyes and just wear a nose clip for more comfort. Training without too much equipment is already pleasant in itself.Xavier started the movement at the surface of the water. I closed my eyes and let myself play and glide into the water. The session started with a question I wished to get an answer to. According to him, the water will bring me the answer. I relaxed myself as much as I could and Xavier started to play with my breath. Underwater moments were perfectly synchronised with my breath. It is a true osmosis, a symbiosis that begins. I never felt breathless, my brain was relaxed and started to fly somewhere else. Answers started to come: let it go away, stay calm, keep going etc. all related to my question. The choice between the different possibilities was getting clearer and clearer.The session could have stopped but the feeling was taking me somewhere else, my mind relaxed completely and I had the chance to get visions.Among them, I was at sea, playing with the waves, swimming in the ocean, and I even experienced the Freefall sensations. The latter was the most amazing, it was so surprising to get through these visions and feelings that we usually have deep in the ocean while simply moving in a 1m depth swimming pool in the city of Nîmes.The session ended smoothly with a quick debriefing on my experience. The connection with the water and Xavier was so strong that we shared some visions! Unbelievable.Thank you for the discovery, i shared a beautiful moment in the water and this therapy is another proof that science cannot explain everything yet.
