    The personal accounts of floating are very real with me. AriG, Running Dear, Valerie and all recount the joy that accompanies the experiences.

    The African shaman video is funny and it most accurately resembles someone being suspended underneath his robe by a jockstrap and accidentally being cornholi-O'd by the wires pulling from underneath and up the back, all the while desperately trying to keep his balance. Do we see any joy in this poor fella's face? That's one of many red flags in this video:

    Only performing levitation at night.
    Poor lighting of the event.
    And all of the shaking we see......

    It does not look that way when it's real. In the video we see his balance point is at waist height. His torso remains stiff while his legs twist from side to side as he tries to hide the contraption suspending him by his stressed out goolies. We've seen this before with many a modern magician attempting to keep their cool. At least their straps and suspension systems are more like a climbing/safety harness than a ball busting, neutering contraption. His collapse at the end of the stunt is quite understandable.

    Milarepa, the well known Tibetan teacher, poet and transcendent yogi, was witnessed by many in his time for flying, instead of walking. More convenient, better views, much more fun. His story is an excellent chronicle of changing your life circumstances when facing the truth of how your actions affect others, then inspiring others to live a much more enjoyable life. With his focus on loving and the natural power it brings, even in self defense, he proved it's value in contrast to acting out in anger.

    Floating is a joy. Flying, however, has not been safe for a while, what with weapons that can reach the ones flying. Besides, most here don't need to show the flying unless they can share some of the "how to do it" instructions.

    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.
    Hey Ron,

    It is a lot of fun to do! We used to do this as children ourselves but we would take turns to lay on the ground, really relaxed and still. A couple of us would place our fingertips underneath that kids body, focus on the intent that the person would magically levitate and hey presto! It would work! It was a lovely feeling as we lifted up into the air. Children hey?
    Unity within the diversity

    Constance, We did the chair routine as adults. I wonder if the levitation can be maintained for a few moments. But maybe the engineer in me, wanting to experiment, would spoil the party.

    I recall doing this as well. Here is how we would do it.....

    If I remember correctly, this could be done with 3 people - 2 people to lift one. At least it did for the seated position. I am not sure if it works with only 2 lifting if the person laying down.

    1. Standing around the person you are going to lift.
    2. Do not say a word...each person, in turn puts their hand over top of the head of the person (if they are sitting in a chair - over the centre of the body if laying down). Each person puts their hands over top of the other hand but not touching each other. IF a hand touches another, you must restart.
    3. Continue until both hands of each person are in place, then remove each hand one by one (starting from the last one placed).
    4. Then using 2 fingers - under the knee and armpit, you can easily lift the person.

    I think it is the focus of concentrating to place the hands in turn without touching or saying a word allows everyone to focus and it also clears the mind of other things.

    I am going to do this with my kids. Thanks for reminding me!

    This isn't so much about levitating.
    When I was 18 (1970), a friend and I would calm/center ourselves, not really meditation, then we would place our hands on the front of a car for a minute or so, then lift the front end of the car about 3 feet in the air.
    I guess it was about intent. We weren't into meditation or anything yet, but we were starting to awaken to the fact that there was a whole new world out there that we hadn't been exposed to before.

    It would be interesting to see people, especially Avalonians, play with energy on video.

    Spoon bending is another example. I've tried it a few times and was only successful once, in a group setting.

    For what it's worth I float regularly in my dreams and at will....
    I don't go down stairs , I just jump and gently float all the way to the bottom.
    I once had a thought of trying it in real life and then realized that there were too many stairs to learn the truth the hard way...

    Same. I actually created a levitation technique for use in my dreams. I usually am also the only one in my dreams who can do it, while no one in the dream is overly shocked that I can do it, I always see a little envy in them when I do.

    The technique starts by building energy in the solar plexus region until you start to get a very strong "butterfly" like sensation that emanates from there, then you focus your intent in allowing that energy to defy gravity and push you around. I have used it for levitation, and full on flying around, but there is limited amounts of this energy that my body can build up and use, so it runs out, or sometimes I just can't get off the ground very well.

    I guess what is interesting for me is that there are very strict and consistent mechanics that govern this ability in my dream states, just like you would expect in the "real world".

    Also a note, when I was young I could astral travel -- I would induce it by building up a "butterfly feeling" in my solar plexus (well I called it "tummy" back then), and spin out of my body just as I was falling asleep. Not unlike the mechanics that are needed for me to fly in a dream state - but this wasn't dreaming.

    There seems to be so much more to the mechanics of this in my dreams, than would be needed to get the result in just a "dream" ... I have tried levitating in real using the same method, but I can't get passed the "silly feeling" induced by "trying to levitate", lol. Maybe I should try more, taking it a little more seriously.

    As a kid I dreamed I could fly. Many times I would just jump into the air and in a horizontal posture grab my insteps in a kneeling position and fly. it was not easy as I had to concentrate very hard to will myself to go higher. Sometimes I did and other times I did not. While I was flying I could see what was below me in a room and sometimes outside in familiar settings.
    All that ended when I got older.

    I suspect that there has to be a reason or connection to reality long forgotten or why would it be in our consciousness.

    Maybe some day we will find the answer.

    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”... ...
    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.
    Jad,

    Thank you for your interest in my story about a very early childhood experience.

    My younger sister first discovered the phenomenon. She was quite special at the time (operative word, at the time, not quite so much today). She was born with an inter cranial disorder. She was born without a soft spot (fontinel). At one month old, she was subjected to having her skull split from base to tip by the nation's top neurosurgeon. Luckily, she has led a quite "normal" life since. The alternative would have been horrifying.

    So, little Sis discovered the art of flying and levitating. She taught me. It really was quite natural feeling. We first started by climbing to the highest point in our access in our home, in this case, a chest of drawers. We would assume a "frog like" stance and catapult ourselves at least 25 feet down a hallway. We would jump, then float, and then come to a very soft landing. It was exhilarating. We would laugh and giggle and felt completely alive.

    My mother's reaction was "no, absolutely not. That cannot be seen, nor is it safe for Beth to risk damage to her head. Under no circumstances are you two ever to do this again!". And the chest of drawers disappeared and so did our access to the 25' long hallway. Our father had no idea. He was always at work. It was the early seventies. Fathers typically did not involve themselves in domestic goings on. He did, however, take us to an interesting tour of a space craft not far from our home in Cherry Creek Colorado. Maybe he did know. Maybe he didn't. Men didn't talk then. They just did. Very sad. Please note that these are the memories of a 53 year old woman, of a weird time in history. I cannot vouch for 100% authenticity. Who is to say what cultural influences have infected my consciousness since then? But the experiences and memories are quite strong. And my sister still recalls the flying events. So there is not quite evidence, but testimony.

    Astral traveling. I live at least 8 hours per day in the Astral plane. I heal there. I dream there and I create there. It is a very real place. I have also been given the most glorious gift of possibly having glimpsed the Akashic records in this plane.

    I unfortunately also experience Remote Viewing/Astral Projection. Disturbing to say the least. And the biggest waste of time in this experience is the mundane. The majority of my OBE/Astral events involve eavesdropping on others having quite day to day experiences. Others whom I have not met. Just random.

    But the important point to remember is that I am in no way unique or special or gifted. All beings are capable of these experiences. All beings. I once healed one of my goats in the Astral Plane. (Now that sounds nuts, doesn't it - but it happened and was real). What all beings need to know is that if they aren't having these experiences? They are blocked and if desired, should take steps to open the energetic fields to their consciousness. But I also must warn. Be very careful about your thought patterns. They manifest. Even if your intent is good, you can manifest the opposite outcome. This happens frequently to me and is quite sad. The best medicine for this is to live and exist in the moment. Take a Zen approach. Or at least try. And isn't that what our creator(s) want for us anyway? They created this beautiful world in which we should thrive and we do everything within our power to disregard the gifts and seek our own definition in an never ending cycle of creation/destruction.

    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 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”... ...
    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.
    Jad,

    Thank you for your interest in my story about a very early childhood experience.

    My younger sister first discovered the phenomenon. She was quite special at the time (operative word, at the time, not quite so much today). She was born with an inter cranial disorder. She was born without a soft spot (fontinel). At one month old, she was subjected to having her skull split from base to tip by the nation's top neurosurgeon. Luckily, she has led a quite "normal" life since. The alternative would have been horrifying.

    So, little Sis discovered the art of flying and levitating. She taught me. It really was quite natural feeling. We first started by climbing to the highest point in our access in our home, in this case, a chest of drawers. We would assume a "frog like" stance and catapult ourselves at least 25 feet down a hallway. We would jump, then float, and then come to a very soft landing. It was exhilarating. We would laugh and giggle and felt completely alive.

    My mother's reaction was "no, absolutely not. That cannot be seen, nor is it safe for Beth to risk damage to her head. Under no circumstances are you two ever to do this again!". And the chest of drawers disappeared and so did our access to the 25' long hallway. Our father had no idea. He was always at work. It was the early seventies. Fathers typically did not involve themselves in domestic goings on. He did, however, take us to an interesting tour of a space craft not far from our home in Cherry Creek Colorado. Maybe he did know. Maybe he didn't. Men didn't talk then. They just did. Very sad. Please note that these are the memories of a 53 year old woman, of a weird time in history. I cannot vouch for 100% authenticity. Who is to say what cultural influences have infected my consciousness since then? But the experiences and memories are quite strong. And my sister still recalls the flying events. So there is not quite evidence, but testimony.

    Astral traveling. I live at least 8 hours per day in the Astral plane. I heal there. I dream there and I create there. It is a very real place. I have also been given the most glorious gift of possibly having glimpsed the Akashic records in this plane.

    I unfortunately also experience Astral Projection. Disturbing to say the least. And the biggest waste of time in this experience is the mundane. The majority of my OBE/Astral events involve eavesdropping on others having quite day to day experiences. Others whom I have not met. Just random.

    But the important point to remember is that I am in no way unique or special or gifted. All beings are capable of these experiences. All beings. I once healed one of my goats in the Astral Plane. (Now that sounds nuts, doesn't it - but it happened and was real). What all beings need to know is that if they aren't having these experiences? They are blocked and if desired, should take steps to open the energetic fields to their consciousness. But I also must warn. Be very careful about your thought patterns. They manifest. Even if your intent is good, you can manifest the opposite outcome. This happens frequently to me and is quite sad. The best medicine for this is to live and exist in the moment. Take a Zen approach. Or at least try. And isn't that what our creator(s) want for us anyway? They created this beautiful world in which we should thrive and we do everything within our power to disregard the gifts and seek our own destruction in an never ending cycle of creation/distruction.
    AriG, I am very thankful for your post and others who has posted recently on many threads. There has been a lot of positive "anything is possible" feelings in the posts lately. At least the ones that I have read.

    I have been going through some very strong positive, yet can't put my finger on it (and that doesn't matter) feelings and moments. Synchronicity is bringing all relevant posts to me.

    I want to stay I with this - and I am going to do my best to do so - so if possible, could you expand a bit on the living in the zen moment thing? Or whatever you are inspired by.

    I think we could all levitate - even if it is only our spirit that is doing so at the moment

    Patient,

    Thank you for your kind words, but let’s not make it about me 😴- the topic is levitation 😊.

    (To briefly answer, everything inspires me to the point of needing to step back and take a zen approach to existence for the sake of not spiraling into sensory overload.)
    “The World is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

    Thanks so much for taking the time to share with us your experiences AriG. I think its fascinating what we are capable of as human beings, and it's a shame how some selfish ones are sabotaging our experience on this planet.

    Some excerpts from the book Autobiography of a Yogi:
    • Among “levitating saints” of the Christian world was the 17th-century St Joseph of Cupertino. His feats received ample attestation from eye-witnesses. St Joseph exhibited a worldly absent-mindedness that was really a divine recollectedness. His monastery brothers could not permit him to serve at the common table, lest he ascend to the ceiling with the crockery. The saint, indeed, was uniquely disqualified for earthly duties by his inability to remain, for any long period, on the earth! Often the sight of a holy statue was enough to exalt St Joseph in vertical flight, the two saints, one of stone and the other of flesh, would be seen circling together in the upper air.

    • St Theresa of Avila, she of the great elevation of soul, found physical elevation very disconcerting. Charged with heavy organizational duties, she vainly tried to prevent her "uplifting" experiences. "But little precautions are unavailing," she wrote, "when the Lord will have it otherwise". The body of St Theresa, which lies in a church at Alba in Spain, has for four centuries manifested incorruptibility, accompanied by a perfume of flowers. The site has witnessed innumerable miracles.

    • A yogi's body loses its grossness after use of certain pranayamas. Then it will levitate or hop about like a leaping frog. Even saints who do not practice a formal yoga have been known to levitate during a state of intense devotion to God.

    I grew up watching old Kung Fu movies and I was always fascinated by how the Kung Fu monks were able to hop from tree to tree! So yea who knows? Maybe that was a common thing in those days!

    I have seen some pretty amazing feats by practicing martial artists and monks.

    This is part of the reason that the PTB keep us so busy so we do not have the time (and the mental space) to achieve some of these things.

    The autobiographical words of Ted Owens, from Jeffrey Mishlove's astonishing book, The PK Man. Owens spontaneously levitated three times in his early years.
    ~~~

    "One day, Queenie [my grandmother] took me to a house where she wanted to visit some woman. I was about four years old and was playing out in the yard. I was standing outside of the house when suddenly I began to float up the side of the house, way up to the top of the house.

    Then I floated back down again; of course, back then I was so young I had no idea of time. So I don't know how long it took. I definitely floated up in the air. When I got back down. I knocked on the door and told Queenie about it, and she laughed and thought I was making it up.

    This same phenomenon happened again when I was about thirteen years old. I was at the country club that was just outside of Bedford where there was a swimming pool. It was in broad daylight.

    I climbed up on the ten-foot board and did a swan dive up in the air, spreading my arms out. Then I didn't come down. I was so astounded and amazed I couldn't believe it. but I kept my arms outstretched and it was the most wonderful, exhilarating feeling I'd ever had in my life.

    I stayed up there what seemed like a long time. Then finally down I went into the water. I might have thought it was my imagination because I couldn't figure it out. I knew that what goes up comes down.

    But when I climbed out of the pool, Bob Armstrong came up, a redheaded kid with freckles, and he said to me, "Tee." They called me "Tee" in those days. "I knew you could do card tricks, but how did you stay up in the air all that time?"

    ---

    Electronics was a young and growing field during the fitful 1940s, and radar, a recent British invention, had just been released to the States for wartime use. While at Purdue, Owens became involved with organizing entertainment events before being shipped to New Caledonia in the Pacific in 1943, where he experienced another of his spontaneous levitations.

    "One day I was outside on the ship's deck," Owens recalled. "I climbed up on a hatch. There must have been fifty to sixty men up there, lying around looking at the ocean. I gave a little jump to go down two or three feet off the hatch — and instead of coming down, I went up into the air and just sort of floated.

    All of the sailors were pointing and saying 'Look at that!' I was just floating and finally came down near the rail some distance away. It was really weird. I'll never forget it. It was definitely levitation. But I don't know what caused it. The sailors' eyes were all bulging out. I lost all sense of time, just as I had done when it happened in Bedford."
