Levitation Dreams - have you had any similar experiences?

Updated on February 17, 2010

I had the following dream quite a long time ago, but I still remember the feeling of excitement as though it were yesterday!

I dreamt that I was lying in bed awake with my (now ex) husband asleep beside me. It was very dark but I had a strange feeling and I knew that I must look into the corner of the room, by the window.

There was someone standing there!

It seemed to be the spirit of a child or teenager. I couldn't make it out very clearly and I was too scared to really look at it (although I wanted to). I woke my husband and the spirit immediately vanished.

In the dream my husband went back to sleep, I looked again, to the corner of the room, and now there were two or three spirits there.

I yelled at my husband to look but they disappeared again.

I'm not quite sure what happened next but then I found myself in another room in my house.

Suddenly I was pulled up off the ground!

I was yanked off my feet in an ‘up and backward’ movement, by an invisible force, which had seized me by a spot between my shoulder blades.

I was hanging in the air horizontally, with my legs floating behind me, as though I had levitated.

I thought "Wow! What's going on?!"

I wasn't really afraid at all. In fact I was tremendously excited and it had certainly got my adrenaline flowing!

I called out for help and my husband, and my father, came running to the doorway, where they stopped rather abruptly. They could not believe their eyes! There I was - just floating in the air!

They each got a hold of one my arms...

Tugging with all their might, they pulled me back through the doorway into the hall, where I came down to earth with a bump - and we ended up in a pile on the floor!

I felt strange and excited. I was thrilled that my dad and my husband had witnessed the whole thing and thought that they'd just have to believe in the paranormal now - they couldn't deny what they'd seen with their own eyes!

I wanted to go back into the room, to see if it would happen again, but was beginning to feel a little uneasy and a little scared.

At that point I woke up.

I was feeling scared, but excited. I snuggled up to my husband for reassurance - although I didn't wake him.

I was very disappointed that it had only been a dream because I want so much for my dad and my husband to experience some paranormal 'stuff' for themselves - they are such skeptics!

I wished that it could really have happened.

I kept thinking what an interesting dream it had been and that I must write it down, but fell back to sleep.

I then spent the rest of the night having several mixed-up dreams in which I was telling people about the first dream - so I didn't forget it - and was able to write it all down when I awoke the next morning!

A couple of weeks later I had a similar dream, but not as enjoyable...

It was a night of very muddled dreams. In the middle of the night I dreamt that I was (now - as an adult) in the living room of my childhood home, standing by the bay windows - the curtains were closed.

I felt "something" very dark and malevolent come through the curtains. It lifted me off my feet and THREW me with great force across the room, slamming me into the wall opposite!

I was absolutely terrified. I woke up immediately, feeling very frightened indeed!

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my dream and found it both interesting and entertaining? You are welcome to leave a comment and share your thoughts and please feel free to rate this hub (preferably 'up')... Thanks!

      I've had several recurring dreams similar to yours. When I first started having them I wasn't afraid. I would jump and float. It wasn't until my husbands suicide that ttey turned sinister. I'm am lifted off the ground by an unseen force and either slammed into the celing or it will try to pull me very fast down a hallway. I usually wake up because I'm trying to scream and I cant. This happens every few months. I'm always in some type of Victorian style, old building, hotel or school with steps of some type. Last night my boyfriend woke me up but I could still feel the evil presence in the room with us. Any thoughts?

      Fantastic hub and really a pleasure to read, I too have had many vivid dreams that seemed so real, and to me they really were. I like to speculate and theorize some on the dream state?

      I often wonder if we are but spirits playing out in the astral worlds sometimes, like free to interact in the planetary consciousness or something like that.

      Beautiful concepts that I wish could explore more deeply, but it is a mysterious subject that still is so appealing, Voted Up!

      I also have had dreams of levatation several times. I am always lying in my bed, and begin to rise up to the ceiling, but I cannot stop it. It was a very scary feeling, like I was not in control of my body. I have not had this dream in years,but still remember it vividly.

      I had a dream of going to the movies and watching a scary movie (which I do not like by the way). My husband went to go get popcorn and suddenly the movie started. the movie was really loud and the audience started screaming and everyone was levitating in the air in a seated position. I was the only one and my husband that fell into a seat at the lower end who did not. The people were like possessed or something. in the dream i was trying to figure out what was going on and why i wasn't in the air. I had my eyes blocked from the movie the entire time. In the dream i guessed that those people were not right with God and are easily taken over by evil. I know its a stupid dream but im just sharing it. Anyone understand it?

      Hi Rosalie and welcome to Hubpages :)

      Thanks for your comment and sharing your experiences - very interesting! I'm also glad to know that I'm not the only one to have been 'lifted and thrown about' by unseen entities! lol

      I have had some similar dreams and your article just reminded me of those dreams. I could not understand those dreams and so I have tried not to think of them. In one of the dreams (my most recent one) I was standing in my bathroom and the door was closed. Something came from behind me and lifted me up. I was so scared, I pulled at the handle of my bathroom door to try to get away. I came out of the dream and was shivering for awhile. In another dream (several years ago but so vivid I can still remember it), I was standing in my son's room (he was living in a college dorm)and I became worried that he was dying. Something came from behind me and threw me in my son's bed. It scared me and I woke up. That day my son called and told me that he had the flu and wanted to come home to stay in his room and see his doctor as soon as possible. The dream was very strange and turned out to be a premonition. Thanks so much for writing this article because I feel better about my strange dream encounters.

      Thanks for your comment Earthbeat. Flying dreams are wonderful aren't they?

      Shaz - I used to try to enduce astral projection, the nearest I came to it was using a 'roll out' method - trying to roll out of my body - but I was so amazed that I snapped straight back in again!

      I did have an experience, which felt like astral travel, as part of another dream, which I've also written about.

      I would love to be able to do it again, for real, but never seem to find the time, or the peace and quiet I think I would need... however, if I do manage to make some time - do you have a method you can recommend?

      Well Crystal! Have you ever tried to enduce astral projection? It is a wonderful feeling to be in control of the travelling. I often wonder if that was the idea that inspired the story of the magic carpet.

      Lovely hub, babes!

      blessed be x

      I enjoyed your Hub. Thank you.

      I have had numerous dreams in which I can fly by forming the intention and moving my arms. It's a wonderful feeling. In these dreams I'm usually the only one able to fly. Now, if I could figure out how to this in waking life (grin!

      Hiya, very interesting dreams. I have had weird one's in the past, the weirdest one was when I shot out of bed because I woke up and saw a spiral reaching down from the ceiling and attaching itself to me. after I had freaked myself out, I wondered if I had actually seen my Astral cord, that is supposed to keep you attached to your body, while you sleep and drift to wherever you go. Weird huh? thanks great stories. cheers nell
