Wow what? I often think about this 'memory' but I just always assumed I was mis-remembering something and never thought much more of it.
I never thought much more of it because I simply thought it was unlikely anybody else had this what I assumed silly mix up in my mind, Clearly by this
thread I am wrong and it is much more common than I thought.
Here's the thing, I don't have memories of floating down the stairs as in being carried, I have memories of floating down the stairs a couple of
inches above the steps upright.
I don't know why its quite a strong memory because I was convinced I was just remembering things that happened in a dream or something.
One other thing is I seem to remember the last time this happened was when I was about 11 maybe and I remember telling my sisters and they just rolled
their eyes at me and put it down to my often at times wild imagination, I recall doing it in the daytime, down their stairs (we had 3 floors, 2 sets
of stairs) and I never slept on the top floor so it wasn't me coming down the stairs half asleep or being carried down (I was too big at this point)
and being half asleep so confused, and if I am remembering rightly I actually intended to float down the stairs ala superman style where he floats
Odd maybe semi-related point is this happened right around the age I saw a UFO with my neighbour (undeniably undebunkable even by today's known
technology), was the two events related? I have no idea.
Cool topic and I am glad I aren't the only one because it always bugged me why this memory was so strong in my memory bank.
When I was much younger (in the house before the UFO and stairs) I had a 'dream' that I was flying in what I told my mum 'the care bears car in the
clouds' (I was 6-7 maybe?), This was obviously the easiest point of reference for me to relate to what I had experienced as I obviously had no idea
what UFO's was, I knew it had happened during the night and was eager to tell my mum of the dream I'd had, I still remember the look of her face when
I described the flight, being able to see everything in the dark and point down the road to a place I had never been before in my life and said "there
are farmers fields and there is a tractor in one of the 'square fields' about 4 or 5 fields/farms down and some other details about barns and things,
I remember the tractor because the loader arm thing at the front had been left in the air for some reason.
I know its not really directly related but I just thought I would throw that in there because I can't see me posting it again, its all childhood
Originally posted by GoldcurrentI have vivid memories of jumping down my stairwell as a child and it being a sensation of almost
floating to a landing
This, yes, definitely this very thing. Clearing 13-14 steps in a simple confident step into mid air and in one stride making it to the bottom, I don't
recall going up stairs like this though.
I would appreciate it if a mod could embed this gif.
