What I mean is, you are either mid way or at the top of the stairs, you deicide to jump it but you don’t fall, you float and reach the bottom slowly.

Apparantly lots of people have this childhood memory?!

I totally understand this! I'm sure I could practically levitate down stairs, really clear memory but make no logical sense.

No, but did go down on a silver tea tray once and dented the front door.
Tell me more about the floating.

What?! Like a ghostly apparition ?

Yes! Such a strong memory. It’s ridiculous, of course - but it’s definitely a memory!

Mumofsend · 09/09/2022 19:48

Well my 6 year old just tried and faceplate the wall..

I read somewhere flying up and down the stairs is a common childhood dream, I used to dream it too

EveryFlightBeginsWithAFall · 09/09/2022 19:49

In dreams as a child I always floated down the stairs, never walked

MsChatterbox · 09/09/2022 19:49

When I first read it I thought of course not but 2 minutes later I am questioning that I think I did float down the stairs...

QueenoftheNimbleFlyingCat · 09/09/2022 19:49

YES OP whenever I have mentioned this to anyone IRL they have looked at me like I was mad. It is such a vivid memory and I went into the living room and my parents had friends over and I wondered why no one could see me.

TruffleShuffles · 09/09/2022 19:49

I know exactly what you are on about, I would imagine propelling myself off the handrail and then float to the bottom. I still dream about it now.

Patapouf · 09/09/2022 19:49

Feet floated but my arms were on the bannister/wall supporting my weight 😂

kimchifox · 09/09/2022 19:50

I used to dream I could float down the stairs. I also used to dream I could fly and levitate in my classroom, but I'm pretty sure none of those things ever actually happened. I have memory of the dreams though and what it felt like!

HappyKoala56 · 09/09/2022 19:50

Don't have this memory at all, but I do remember being stuffed at the bottom of a sleeping bag while my sister was at the top and sliding (ungracefully) down the stairs

sleepyduvetcat · 09/09/2022 19:50

OMG yes!! A very vivid dream of standing at the top of the stairs and then stepping off and floating down to the bottom. I can picture my childhood stairs now. It felt so real, I always wanted to have that dream again but never did.

AlwaysGinPlease · 09/09/2022 19:50

Yes! It was obviously dreams but I have VERY vivid " memories " of floating up and down the stairs with my knees tucked under so my feet were behind on my back. Weird!

QueenoftheNimbleFlyingCat · 09/09/2022 19:50

Oh no, saw your second message. Not like mine! Ha!

Skinnermarink · 09/09/2022 19:50

My stairs were haunted, I didn’t piss about on them, you had to dart down quick!

HippeePrincess · 09/09/2022 19:50

That’s very odd, no!

TheSpottedZebra · 09/09/2022 19:51

Me! I could! Am sure I remember doing so.

Also, my arms used to feel extra long sometimes.

MissAmbrosia · 09/09/2022 19:51

Yes. And floating room to room upstairs. I'm sure it was just dreaming but I have a vivid memory of this.

RocketPanda · 09/09/2022 19:51

I grew up in a bungalow 😕

Zelda93 · 09/09/2022 19:52

Yep I'm sure I used to be able to fly.. really strong memories of flying around the house as a child 😂
