|©Holly DeFount - Sun, Blue Buddha, Awakening|
In the morning, I didn't have time for my daily meditation, which I have done religiously for the last three weeks - hence "don't do" the Blue Buddha (the Hermit).
As for the rest, this has been a day full of metaphorical sunshine (though meteorological hail!). It was such fun driving up to where the Indoor Skydiving chamber was, and body-flying for the first time. My Dear One and I were there with just one other person who was also flying for the first time. We all watched an introductory video, then had a talk from the instructor. After suiting up in bodysuits, goggles, earplugs (it's noisy!) and helmets, we went up to the chamber, and got to watch some more advanced people practising and learning new skills. Then it was our turn :D
This was such an eye-opener. I imagine most people have had dreams where they fly, and everyone I've heard has always loved these. I feel like I have awakened from a dream to find it was real. It was such an amazing feeling, and I can see it could be addictive. It takes quite a bit of body awareness and control - I'm sure my twenty one years of yoga stood me in good stead! At the end our instructor did a mini-demo of the kind of flight you can achieve - it was stunning. So, here is my certificate, and you can bet I'll be going again!
