Levitation while meditating

<mod>just a reminder. Two posts have been removed from this topic. The beyond forum is not to discuss if you believe in these things or not, or (demand) proof (of) existence, rather to share experience or learn more about it. moogle </mod>

I have seen the Levitation topic, but thats about magic tricks, I have a different question, about levitating while meditating.

I have seen serveral pictures of a day called Continental Yogic Flying Competition. A group of people gather around and levitate by meditating ( i dont know the details about what they actually do there). Is it a trick? I hope not. Because it gave me hope.
I am a person who likes to set goals in his life and to chase them till its completed.
Levitation is the dream of every person upon this planet (actually, flying is, but its almost the same thing :q) But there arent many guides who tell about it on the internet.

So my question to you, do you think its real and do you know a way how to attain this form of enlightment?

What I have collected so far about this subject:
http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a4_136.html (some information about the Flying Competition)

More to come thanks to your contribution hopefully ^_^

Hmm...thats really interesting. I think its true and i want to have hope in things like that because it can open up so many unknown doors. I know our minds are capable of so much more than most people think and theres too much out there to understand. Levetation while meditating can be a debate however with certain people. If this is true, maybe its a different sort of mental body (Astral, spirit, soul) thats levitating to a new level. Who knows unless its experienced by yourself and you claim it to be true.

If you look at the physics behind most of this stuff, the answer is simple: "no there is no physics that can explain it so it cannot be true".

However new physics is aways being discovered and maybe one day it will be explained.
Bear in mind though, that to levitate you must provide nearly 10 times your own mass in kilograms in a force, otherwise youll stay firmly on the floor.

I believe the whole act of meditating to levitate could influence the mind and make you believe that you and others are levitating, that's all I can think of. But yeah it would be cool :D

I went to this thing where two famouse ghost hunters husband and wife(sorry i dont know their names, they live in conecticutt husband died) said that levitation is real but it takes up 90% of the brains power so its hard to induce. They are a very credible source so dont try and say their lying or any of that bs.

Sri Aurobindo seemed to acknowledge that some people could really do this, that for some it came naturally and for some it took a lot of work. But he saw it as something not very wortwhile for those who could do it automatically, because it came without any refinement or growth, and suggested that for these people it often becomes a type of parlor trick that use for money, that they don't have total control over and thus fake when they have to so they can keep their livelihood. And for those who spent time trying to learn to do it, he saw it as something not really worth the effort because it takes a lot of work and has nothing to do with what he saw as the goal of spiritual practice: inner growth (which he differentiated from ethical or moral growth.)

I personally don't think it's very likely because it violates the laws of physics. In addition it seems even folks like David Blaine can fake it. There are a lot of scammers who try to pass themselves off as spiritually enlightened with parlor tricks to make a quick buck. Levitation is only one example.

i know some stuff on physics,

levitation can be made with imans, simply oposite charges will be repulsive having the object being "pulled away from the floor" the object should fall again usually to the side, but its possibly to equilibrate it in order that the repulsive force of magnetism and gravity anulate eachother therefore making the object levitate.

it has been proved that some ppl can make objects leviatate, but scientists have no clue how.....the science that studies this is called "parapsycology" (rough translation form portuguese name)

possibly levitating whiel meditating is this very same process?

theres several alternative religions like "wicca" and "spiritual satanism" that argue about mental powers, actually by reading superficially it seems you need to enter some states of transe, very similiar to lucid dreamin stuff!

i can post some linsk on spiritual satanism, it has intresting points on mind powers (also says some stuff about church and a conspiracy to avoid us from using mind powers! i havent tried it yet and dont inted to do so, cause we cna ruin our lfie pretty bad by messing with demons for fun...)

Look guys mental powers are real. neutral k? Levatation can be achived trough telekinesis or chakra control. I have personally moved an object with chakra before so I know this stuff is real. Its very simple. Its not impossible, grow up. It is time for the world to get past there ignorance and start realizing how simple and possible this sort of stuff is. ^^ tis, life is but a.............. a.. whatever you want it to be.

i believe they are real, id like to know how they work in a physical point of view

i hope in future ppl use theyr mental powers at full extent, many scientific progress can be made with them, id like to make physics investigation on the subject, there must be a way to detect the astral body/psy energy/whatever, they must be made of something, once science finds a way to detect it and it becomes public (the whole subject is still very underground) i believe mankind will achieve many tecnological advancements.

i/we know it is there, i just wana know how and why it is there, also it gives a lot work to control this stuff, making most ppl quit trying (lack of prof helps quit trying)....maybe in future child are alredy educated in this from young ...
