did anyone else used to practice levitation at school? Sounds really weird, but we did this during break time, chanting a special verse and resting one little finger each on the person to be levitated. And it really did work, which we just accepted! This was during the 1970s so before most of your time, but wondered if anyone else remembers this?

Yes 😂

Yes! Never ever made it work though, so perhaps the power had worn off by the 90s.

We did this at sleepovers after watching The Craft (“light as a feather, stiff as a board”). Convinced ourselves it almost worked a bit. We were very convinced we were talking to a spirit with some tragic story via the Ouija board as well.

Fun innocent times :-) lasted about six months before we discovered boys and cheap cider!

Yes, as teenagers in the evenings in the 90s. Must mention it to the others actually.

I looooooved The Craft. Was a very shit goth for six months because of it.

Yes!! In the 70s definitely worked spooky

Yes in the 90's. It definitely worked! Or so we thought. Only if you chanted in unison though grin

Do you remember the chant you used? People seem to have been inspired to do this by The Craft (tv show? if not excuse ignorance) in the 90s but what on earth inspired us to do it in the 70s? I remember a teacher walking in in the middle of one session and just walking out again completely unfazed. Maybe they were doing the same in the staffroom..

Yes! It did seem to work. We also tried to hypnotise each other to discover our past lives! And squeeze each other really hard round the middle to make the person faint confused
