So weird! I just thought of this memory not even an hour ago while sitting at the bus stop. I have no idea if it was my imagination as a child or what. Sometimes I have dreams of flying or flying around on my stomach just inches off the ground and whenever I wake up the feeling of familiarity is so strong!

I don't have a memory of past dreams while dreaming. I think the physical sensation in the dream when I'm floating is that of contracing my muscles, mostly my core muscles in the abdomen, while leaning slightly forward and then I just seem to "lift off". I level off just a couple feet from the ground, still in a vertical standing position, and still leaning slightly forward. I begin to float/glide forward while looking at the people around me. This, as I recall takes place outdoors on a sidewalk. The people aound me don't seem to notice or perhaps I just think they don't notice when in actuality they do, but they don't think it's unusual. Either way, they do not respond to my floating.
As for the other dream, the feeling is definatly a feeling of speed and inertia. Not a feeling of space bending around me.

The latest dream/nightmare I had, was with a girl who I kissed a long time ago, not really my soulmate but sometimes it feels like it but i doubt it cause she's a model now. the dream starts off we are going down in an elevator together holding hands, she is leaning in and cuddling, it's a very tall tower it seems to take awhile for us to get down to the bottom floor but we get there. We are in a school. She has to go do something while I eat in the cafeteria,
I end up walking down one of the halls. I turn into the classroom and she is decapitated in a transparent tub..
I walk out of classroom and there is a blue eyed blonde haired woman with a devlish look, black shadows around her eyes.
She whips an axe at me and severs my thumb, I tell a brunette/black haired girl to run for help, I remember chasing her, she runs down some stairs, but I "float jump" like moon gravity. Duck under a rail like it's nothing, really bizarre kind of deal, people are astonished like it was impossible, which it was.

Some time ago on another discussion board, I remember viewing a long thread where people related memories of being able to gently float or fly down stairs as children. Now, it's quite easy to 'debunk' the idea that they actually defied gravity if you know how mutable memory is and how a child being carried might have the sensation of floating, but it was still interesting to me how many people shared the experience and in what ways. Some reported dreams rather than memories, but the theme of floating or flying up and down stairs in a way which felt effortless yet sensorily persuasive was prevalent, and I just find it interesting from a psychological point of view. But I put it in this area because I reckoned people would jump to the magical places pretty fast no matter what I wrote up here...
