More about moving dreams to action. This is from skydiver Cheryl Stearns who is set to make a jump from the edge of space to see what is would be like to bail out of the space shuttle at 100,000 feet. Here she describes how she got started in skydiving:
It bothered me so much that I told my mother I had to do a parachute jump to find out if the sensation in the dream was real. All I wanted to do was the free-fall bit, but I found out you had to do the static-line stuff first. On my first jump the parachute was open almost as soon as I left the plane so there was no free fall to experience. It took another 15 or so jumps before I could see and feel everything, because there is such a sensory overload when you first start jumping. After that, I never had the dream again. It was directly responsible for getting me interested in skydiving.
I’m interested in how her dreams were full of sensory perception that led her to have to actually perform the actions of free falling for her to find out if they were right or not. This is a beautiful example of self-fulfillment coming through vision.
