I used to believe that the feeling of pins and needles was the magical power that Pippi Longstockings had so I jumped of the couch a few times trying to flap my arms as fast as I could.
when i was younger about 6 years old me and my friend used to pick up feathers so we'd have a few in each hand we'd then run down the hill on the field at school and start flapping our arms and then we'd jump- believing that if we had feathers we could fly... I also remember exclaming "i flyed a bit then!" (when i jumped as i ran and left the floor for a couple of seconds).
When I was 9 or so, one of my favorite video game characters was a girl with black wings. For some reason, I started to believe I was growing wings like hers! I thought I saw 2 blackish purple stripes on my back where they would grow in. I marked a day on my calender when I thought they would poke out, and the night before I did a lot of somersalts knowing that I wouldn't be able to anymore, growing wings and all. I was so disappointed the next day...
I used to believe that my special, phsycic powers allowed me to force people in other cars to stare at me until I willed them to look away. I always thought I was the one making them look in the rearview or change lanes. I also believed that I had to be careful not to over do it or they might crash.
When i was about 5, there was one night when I came home really late at night with my dad from seeing family and the stars were out.. I had seen winnie the pooh wish upon a star on tv so i decided to do it myself.. I did the ryhme and at the end when you are supposed to wish for something i said 'honey' because i couldnt think of anything else. I went inside and told my mum and dad i had just wished for honey when dad said 'go and take your coat off'.. when I did, there was a pot of honey in my hood. I was delighted! I later realised my dad must have heard me wishing and put it there without me knowing. Heeheehee. I love magic! :D
I used to think if i closed my eyes then I was invisible.
when i was little, i had a great sense of memory and i had alot of deja vu's so i used to think i was pshychic and my older brother actually relied on me to tell the future. of course, when we got older he was in a bad mood and told me off.... and my parents just thought i was a little girl making things up to get attention... but i always thought i had magical powers untill i learned what deja vu's were.
When we were about six or seven, my best friend and I were convinced we could do magic. We'd make each other's eyes appear to change color by suddenly running towards each other. It must have been a trick of the light or something, because for an instant or so I could swear her naturally blue-grey eyes turned green!! She'd also inform me that my brown ones had turned bright blue. We wondered how to make the changes last longer--maybe by spinning around fast enough or long enough, with our eyes closed and yelling gibberish 'magic words' , we could make them permanent. No such luck, sadly.
When I was in middle school, our school had signs next to each room with the room number. On these signs was the brail equivalent to the number. I asked my teacher how people who are blind know where to feel to find the signs. He replied the signs make a high pitch sound that only the blind can hear due to the fact that they have heighten hearing to make up for their lack of sight.
When I was about 4 or 5, I believed that if I stood on my hands and lifted hard enough, I could levitate. I eventually gave up.
that i was invincible
when i was in third grade i used to believe that if i spun around really fast i could turn into Wonder Woman....
You know how when you close 1 eye, then open that 1 and close the other. Like an alternating wink. When I was little, i thought that i could actually move things by doing that!
i clearly recall thinking that i could control the sun with the power of a stone - by holding it up to the sky and shouting "come out!"
i actually got a couple of my playground friends doing it too. pretty cloudy windy day i guess!
when i found out about santa and the tooth fairy i decided that there were "other" things that adults were keeping from children...
I used to honestly believe that all adults could mind read - and i'd be taught how to do it once i got older too!
I used to belive that I could fly. I would climb on top of a moderetly high vantage point and jump, arms out streched in front of me. I would feel this nervous ball form in the pit of my stomach as gravity temporarily gave way at the begining of my jump. I was sure that this was the begining of what it must feel like to fly. Then the ground would rush up on me as gravity clenched its claws around my childhood dream and I would fall a short distance to the ground. Ever determined I would return to my vantage point to have another go at it. I was just not consintrating hard enough I would tell myself. Truly beliving that if I tried anything and worked hard enough at it it would be achivable.
When i was a kid i believed that i was a wizard and to teleport to magic realm i had to stand in a circle of "magic sticks" and my friend had to say Serventor molenke avious while my eyes were closed but all he did was get out stuff and move stuff so it looked like magic real that was when i was 6 i am 10 now. I WAS WEIRD
My daughter, at age 4 to 5, really believed that if she sat in the lotus position, closed her eyes and breathed "oooommmm" she became invisible. I don't know how she came to this but needless to say I played along with it and would pretend to look for her when she did this. Later on she was disappointed that this didn't work when other people were in the room. I told her her special powers only worked when only mum was in the room because she got these powers through me.
When I was little, I used to believe that if people were touching you, even through clothes, they could tell what you were thinking.
I have no idea why.
when i was a little boy, i remember thinking i was super magic. i used to have this black ghost-busters hat that i believed could turn 5 cent peices into like 25 lollies. the hat had a flap [neck protector] on the back, and my mother even sewed a pouch inside it so i could put the 5 cents in. i used to close the flap over the hat, and say abracadabra and everything. the then *BAM* there was the lollies. it was so exciting, until one day, it didn't work, and it hasnt worked since. but i still believe i was magic.
