Do you think humans have the ability to levitate? I've read that many people dream about doing this.
Maybe we really have that ability, and just don't know how to get started.

Telekinesis yes, more than skeptical on levitation.

Typo in dates..... Around 1950, shortly after the death of his mother.

I think levitation is possible.
http://yachnayoga.wordpress.com/2011...natural-powers
Anahat Chakra or heart chakra: If one contemplates on the flame called vanlinga that resides in the heart chakra (anahat chakra), he attains knowledge beyond measure. He attains clairvoyance and can see the past, present and future. He can walk in air (khechari siddhi) = levitation.
But it could take a years of meditation on one chakra only.

Why yogis do not do levitation?

Meditation Danger #2: Developing supernatural powers
If you meditate for some years (or if you meditated in past lives,
then this can happen very fast), you’re likely to develop some
supernatural powers...............................

So, yogis do not use siddhi. Siddhis are regarded as an obstacle.

Primal memories of our arboreal past lead us to dreams of flying, levitating and ultimately, falling.

Every levitation thing I've ever seen has been utter and complete fakery.

That's the problem with most things in the occult, paranormal, medicine etc etc etc. because even if it's completely real there are so many fakes you have to wade through.

You see it everywhere in history, heck just remember that Coca Cola started out as a healing health tonic. lol.

I remember reading about some guys who sued the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (the Beatles' guru) because he charged them money to teach them how to "levitate", which turned out to be (as described by the plaintiffs) "merely hopping about with one's legs folded".

The fact that there are cheaters does not mean the absence of real abilities.
But people they realy want obtain such a powers must have own efforts and a good knowledge.

Today is the age of the smart phone and social media. If levitation was possible do you not think that there would be videos available? Show us a good video of somebody raising a feather or piece of paper. Heck the young kids at work put every stupid motion on the social media - I'm sure they would post somebody floating. People do many things for money - they would post any picture of the paranormal if they thought there was a dollar to be made.

There have been reports of levitation in conjunction with demonic possession. No real reports of just being able to float.
