    Default Can humans really levitate?



    The most prominent paper in Thailand put on the news of a yogi levitating after going into deep meditation in front of a crowd of people. The link is below (it's in Thai though ).

    Concerning the "levitating yogee" above, ......ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, ...... don't be too quick to believe he's levitating. I've seen the same type of picture before, with other people supposedly levitating. Then I saw the video. They are bouncing.

    The video I saw showed three young men, sitting in that yoga position while seated on very springy soft mattresses. (Just like what the man above is on). They were then able to start bouncing, as if on a trampoline. (while still in that sitting yoga position). Then it's just simply a case of snapping a picture when the guy is at his highest point, and voila, look here everybody, he's levitating.

    Edit: I'm not saying levitation isn't possible. I just don't believe that the picture above is true levitation.

    As best I know (please correct me if I'm wrong), this video has never been proven conclusively to be a hoax. (Though many have criticized it, of course.)

    This photo of Yogiraj Akashagiri is widely believed (by those who hold levitation to be theoretically credible!) to be genuine.

    My sister and I were capable of levitation in 1972. She was four, I was seven. We flew and levitated. Until our mother forbade it and we became “grounded”. Interesting word, grounded. If you are “grounded” as an adult, you are considered reliable. If you are “grounded” as a child, you are being restricted and punished from your desired activities. If you are a grounded airplane, you cannot fly. Strange coincidences, as those who ground us do not want “our heads in the clouds”. “He is a good sort - Down to Earth”... ...

    I took a Transcendental Meditation workshop in Bangkok, and the instructor talked about a levitation contest they do every year. When I asked him about if it’s real or not, he said that it’s not like we conventionally think about levitation. He said that when you reach certain euphoric levels mentally that your body becomes lighter and starts bouncing for the lack of a better term. He showed us a video of monks doing what seems to be effortless bouncing and he said that if you try to get a world class gymnast he/she won’t be able to do it this easily.

    Can you please talk more about this. Did you spontaneously learn how to do it or a being taught you or instructed you how? What was your parents reaction when they first saw you do this? Did you do have any other abilities like moving objects mentally or astral traveling? There are so many questions in my mind but can you talk about what you feel comfortable with?

    Many thanks.

    Question Re: Can humans really levitate?

    Say what you will about that OP picture but several times in my life I have dreamt of levitation in that exact position, a few feet off the ground in several locations in the town here I live. In these dreams I feel mighty frustrated because I am not going high & fast enough for my liking...

    I personally believe that yes, humans can levitate. And not just that, I believe that we can do many many things that are called "super powers" in movies.
    But society and educational systems convince us that we can't, so we accept it like that. We are magical beings, unfortunately too "stupid" to accept it.

    I was surprised back when I was younger, the Natural Law Party were running in my area. The thing that caught my attention most was the "yogic flying" aka levitating, and I remember thinking "I hope these guys win" (they didn't though)

    The fact that there's so many of them leads me to think that there's probably something more to it, similar to with crop circles - I don't think all of those are hoaxes. More info here.

    When I was between the ages of 10 and 12, we used to levitate others just for fun. Usually at slumber parties.

    The person to levitate would lay prostrate on the floor while the remaining girls would sit around the person. We would put two fingers on each hand under the person and think with all our might, "You are light as a feather." The girl on the floor would rise a few inches with no pressure or lifting from us.

    I think the idea came from me because I had seen my great grandfather do many hypnotist demonstrations. I just had the idea in my head it could be done and it worked every time.

    This account, reporting an experienced he witnessed when traveling in Sikkim (now a part of north-east India, bordering Tibet), was described by the veteran researcher John Keel in his wonderful book Jadoo. It's probably his very best book.

    Highly recommended. Jadoo is all about his personal search in the the Middle East and Asia for genuine (real) magic. He failed to find any (though he did see a Yeti) — until the following encounter. Throughout his journey in Sikkim, he'd heard of a fabled lama, with great abilities, called Nyang-Pas.

    Until he suddenly found him. Or rather, Nyang-Pas found John Keel first.

    Jadoo is no longer in the Avalon Library, but there's a 7-day download link here. The extract below is from pp.235-238. Enjoy.
    ~~~
    I reached the dak bungalow at Singhik, less than twenty miles from Gangtok. While I was resting and suffering there, sitting with my head cradled wearily in my arms, thinking of the big steak I intended to polish off in Firpo’s when I reached Calcutta, a timid little lama knocked at the door.

    "Shree Keel, you have been seeking me?” he said in perfect English.

    “Who are you?" I asked blearily, surprised. He was about five feet tall, dressed in a thick woolen robe with a hood pulled over his head, almost covering his wrinkled, pocked face.

    “I am Nyang-Pas.”

    I snapped out of my lethargy and jumped up.

    “I'll say I've been seeking you! How did you find me?”

    “It was easy. Your trail is wide.” He smiled. He acted very shy, almost embarrassed; the mark of a man who spends most of his life alone.

    I asked him to sit down in a chair but he preferred to squat cross-legged on the floor.

    “I'm not used to chairs,” he explained.

    “I have been watching your progress...” he continued.

    “How? Through linga sharrira?” I asked.

    He smiled again.

    “I see you have learned something here.”

    I offered him a cup of instant coffee. He took one sip, shuddered, and gulped the whole thing down like a glass of bad whisky.

    During the next hour we talked about Sikkim and the lamaseries and Tibet. He said he was originally from Tibet, and now spent his life alone in the hills of Bhutan and Sikkim, searching for the “right ways.”

    “They tell me you're a great Siddba,” I said at last.

    He wrinkled his brows and looked down at the floor.

    “No... no, I am just a simple lama, What you mean is that I'm a magician. I am not. I only practice the teachings of my religion.”

    I described the mysterious séance at Changthang, and my experiences with the telepathic lamas.

    “Those are primitive things,” he said with disdain. “Our teachings go beyond such crude things.”

    “Can you show me something... teach me something...”

    “It would take you a lifetime of solitude... but perhaps...” He scrutinized me thoughtfully. “Perhaps I can introduce you to the principles..."

    He struggled to his feet, pressed one hand on the top of his stick, a heavy branch about four feet long, frowned a little with effort, and then slowly lifted his legs up off the floor until he was sitting cross-legged in the air!

    There was nothing behind him or under him. His sole support was his stick, which he seemed to use to keep his balance. I was astounded.

    “Can you teach me this?” I asked hopefully.

    “No... it is not something you can learn overnight. It is a matter of will.”

    He conducted the rest of our conversation sitting there in empty space.

    [The lama then demonstrated a number of other abilities.]

    When he climbed down from his perch in space he wished me luck, gave me advice about my health, and promised me good fortune. I begged him to stay with me, to accompany me to Gangtok, but he said:

    “It’s too big a place for me. I am a solitary man, Shree Keel.”

    He walked to the door.

    “I hope I have answered some of your questions, And I hope you will never stop asking questions.”

    “Is there any way I can find you again... if I come back?” I asked.

    “If you come back, I will find you.”

    Those were his last words. He turned and started off through the fog, the orchids, and the heaps of bare rocks. A cold wind swept over me and sent me back to the blazing fireplace. We'd talked for about two hours. God only knows how far he had traveled to spend those two hours with me.

    A similar technique is to have someone sit in a chair. A few people surround the chair, saying magic words, and only use two fingers to lift the chair more than a foot above the floor and immediately set it back down, using almost no effort. I participated in this more than once years ago, as we took turns in the chair, during our Monday Meditation group. I was amazed.

    Wish I could remember more details. It would be fun to do again.

    Talking with a TM "Governor" (teacher of Transcendental Meditation) I asked about the yogic flying technique they practice. The teacher said there are videos on the internet. Practitioners feel as if they are flying. Observers see it as hopping. I have not yet found the videos.

    I didn’t levitate but I could float. There was a certain place on the property where we’d play hide and seek. It was in tall grasses and a sycamore grove. I’d float just enough to glide and tumble away from my younger siblings.


    We lived in the country off a long, dusty, rocky road. There was one steep hill close to home that was too hard to ride up on a single speed bike. I’d keep my head down, walk the bike, watch the rocks and dirt road under foot and 'see' me at the top of the hill. Whether I shorten the climb or shorten the time I couldn’t say. All I knew was I didn’t have to tackle the hill.

    I had a feeling never to question how or it wouldn’t work. I was about 13-14. Then I hit the age where the magic stopped and labored up the steep hill. Every once in a while, I’d try just to prove it was real. I gave up because it only caused me to doubt what I knew to be true.


    My wish is for the world to change so that the little ones will never lose their natural abilities and continue to refined them as they mature.

    He said that when you reach certain euphoric levels mentally that your body becomes lighter and starts bouncing for the lack of a better term.
    That helps put words to how I'd get that tickle in the belly, giggle and laugh (euphoric) while I tumbled, glided and floated on my hands and knees. I was just a kid being a kid.

    When I was between the ages of 10 and 12, we used to levitate others just for fun. Usually at slumber parties.

    The person to levitate would lay prostrate on the floor while the remaining girls would sit around the person. We would put two fingers on each hand under the person and think with all our might, "You are light as a feather." The girl on the floor would rise a few inches with no pressure or lifting from us.

    I think the idea came from me because I had seen my great grandfather do many hypnotist demonstrations. I just had the idea in my head it could be done and it worked every time.
    My friends tried that one on me, and ended up planting me face first into the ceiling. Not fun. I think I might have been "too light"

    This photo of Yogiraj Akashagiri is widely believed (by those who hold levitation to be theoretically credible!) to be genuine.

    At least this one is not over a mattress!
