I posted this on another forum mostly because it just had a category that it seemed to fit better. After some of the responses though, I thought I
would bring it here to see if it has happened to anyone here as well. First the story:
"It is funny how kids have a natural instinct to not tell anyone of their unusual experience. Out of fear of being called a liar, or a weirdo of some
Well, I'm that kid and since it has been so long, I cant see any harm in sharing this moment in my life here with you folks. Guess it is easier to do
with people of like mind.
I was pretty young, 6 or 7 maybe, and already quite the tomboy. Growing up in South Florida made it easy to be quite the swimmer.
Another normal day at the pool with friends, playing a favorite kids game, "Tea party" underwater. The one you go underwater and sit on the bottom
as long as you can pretending to have a tea party. Of course you play it a few times, cant just go down once, it wouldn't be any fun as far as a
Anyhow, I guess around the fourth or fifth time going down is when it got a little weird for me. All the sudden I had this sensation that I could have
stayed down there as long as I wanted because I knew how to breath the water. I wasn't panicked, I was more intrigued with it I suppose. Not to
mention I was actually doing it.
You have to remember this all sort of happened like a domino effect.
One part of me was like a kid with a new discovery and wanting to test it out, the other part of me was common sense to that fact that I shouldn't be
able to be doing this, yet I am. Quite the dilemma for a young mind.
How long I stayed under experimenting I really don't recall. The common sense side won and I guess it triggered the you need air thing. Ill venture a
guess of a couple minutes probably. I know back then I could hold my breath quite awhile, so really hard to say, except this time I wasn't holding
it, I was breathing the water.
Now I've been told later on in years that my family actually found me floating in the family pool when I was toddler age on Thanksgiving day. My
grandmother said I was so calm and just as happy as I could be floating there.
Apparently I had wondered off as toddlers do when the grownups are engrossed in the holiday festivities. Sounded like I put a much larger scare into
them finding me like that, than I was of being scared.
Whether these two incidents have anything to do with each other or not, I have no idea. I do know that every time I have been swimming since then I
have tried to recapture that sensation too no avail. That damn common sense keeps getting in the way.
So there you go, I've shared my little moment in time with you."
Seems I wasn't the only one that has experienced this. Seems to have happened when we were all very young. The good news is knowing I'm not the only
one. That leads me to wonder just what kind of scale this actually happens on or do we just not know about it because kids wont mention it.
Does anyone recall any of their friends ever mentioning it happened to them?
Has it happened to you?
Ever heard of any studies on it?
What do you think may have happened? A time slip? A moment of recall when man left the sea to walk on earth? I really don't know, just throwing
thoughts out here. Very curious to your thoughts or experience.
