    Is the act of levitation a possibility?  Can faith beat gravity?

    I've been reading up on the possibility of levitation through meditation, faith and reason.  It seems it might actually be possible - though incredibly incredibly hard.  The other day I took a huge jump and it felt as though for a split second I was actually levitating.  Have you ever achieved this?  Do you think it possible?

    The only way this will work is if you are tied to the ceiling.  Sorry, but gravity can't be beaten.  If it was possible, you could write a book on how to do it, sell it to women and men over 40 and make a fortune because after 40, gravity is no friend. lol

      I that most people think gravity can't be beaten - but my recent experiences suggest otherwise!

    Demonic entities always try to get people to believe that they can levitate or do other seemingly impossible things, in order that the person thinks they can do things of their own power. But this is just an act.

    The fact of the matter is, demonic entities will "entertain" your idea of levitation, ESP, mind control, remote viewing and all sorts of other abilities. They do these things for you, so that the appearance of said "things" seem to be of your own volition and power.

    Would you still want those "powers" and "abilities", knowing that it is just fallen angels who are keeping you occupied with yourself? Pride is a horrible disease, and pride is the driving force to be powerful, and to have all these abilities. But it's a lie.

    What else better do fallen angels have to do with their time, than deceive us of the truth?

      Many religions say you will develop these powers through meditation, but that being seduced by them is a dangerous trap.

      "But it looks sooo good! It can't possibly be a lie, could it AlexK?"

      Very, very seductive, that "woman" of Babylon is.

      But when I float - I feel free and just wonderful.  How can it possibly be demonic?

      You can tell if something is demonic, if you call upon the name of the Lord to rebuke the darkness. It only works if you mean it though.

      Plus, the closer you get to the truth, the more they attack you, and whisper in your ear.

    St Joseph of Copertino was observed levitating when he went into ecstasy during mass.   Daniel Dunglas Hume allegedly floated out ot one window and into another.

    Kenneth Bacheldor claims to have induced levitation  in his sessions. It was believed Nijinsky was levitating when he did some jumps in Ballet, but this may have just been an illusion.

    Overall there is enough evidence that the possibility can neither be discounted nor considered proven.
