Hi, you are the first person ive found that did the exact same as me, i am now 28 but have always clearly remembered as a child age between 5-7 my usual way to go downstairs would be to hold the rail, close my eyes, i would feel a strange light headed/floating sensation then when i open my eyes i would be at the bottom, although my eyes was closed i knew i did not walk down the stairs, i once told my older brother but of course he not believe me, i tried to show him but it did not work, after that i found i could float down stairs less often, then one day i tried to show my mother, it did not work again, then from that day it never happened again.. When i was older i thought those memories could not be how i remember, perhaps i did walk but was tranced, but still i knew i floated, so i did research and this is what i found.. I have read many stories of children all aged varied from 5-9yr old, each could only float in the first place it happened and nowhere else, for me and u it was stairs, for others it was a certain rail outside or their bed etc. And in many cases if any of these children tried to show anyone it then stopped happening. I think they must be something more to this, it cant be just a coincidence that so many have these memories and share so many similarities.

Last week a memory came back to me which I'd forgotten all about for many years. I had spoke of this and thought about it as an adult but not for a long time. I decided to try a search on the internet as that's how we learn everyhing these days ! There was very little I could find which fitted exactly to my own experience apart from a thread on Mr ickes forum!! The problem is most people with similar experiences alude to OOBE's or dreams.
What actually happened to me between the ages of 6 and 9 is slightly different. I would stand at the top of the stairs and grab the rail and the opposing wall and lift myself up. I would then stay just off the ground and could make myself float down without using any support from the wall or rail. I also recall staying off the ground when I pushed myself up off the sofa and armchair ARM,one either side of me.
I remember telling my sister and dad about it but could never reproduce it around others. I know it was not a dream and occured quite a few times as a youngster. My dad remembers me boasting about it when I asked him last week.
What I would love to know is if anyone else recalls anything like this and why you think it could be possible(especially with the naievety of a child's mind etc). I know a lot of you will scoff and ridicule this, and I realise why but I've tried to give an honest account and am not claiming I can do this now.I can't,I've tried!

Anyone here claiming to have the ability to levitate as a child is either confusing childhood dreams with reality or just totally full of crap. You were not floating around as a child, sorry to burst your delusional bubbles
In dreams it's another story, a lot of us dream of floating/levitating even as adults
