I used to beieve that parent's had powers that could do almost anything. I originated this idea because my mom called me "sweetheart" and I thought I transformed into the candy type.
Until I was seven, I firmly believed that I could fly if I concentrated hard enough. You don't wanna know how many times I'd jump off of the back of my dad's truck or a tall rock or run half a mile only to jump into the air and come back down again. I actually convinced one of my friends that I could get him to fly too.
When i was younger i heard the phrase "photographic memory" but i wasnt sure what it meant. i came to the conclusion that if you look at something, put your index finger on your temple, and blink, you'll remember what you were looking at, even if it was a page out of a book. i tried doing this to study for tests, and didn't understand why mom kept telling me i had to go study more, when clearly i didn't need to.
My Uncle used to pick me up by my belt loops....which, for years after, caused me to continually rip out my own loops trying to levitate myself - now in my 50's I often catch myself wondering if I just needed stronger pants.
i used to believe up until i was 12 that me and my best friend (who now lives in Ireland. If he's reading this: HI!!!) could see ghosts and found it our duty to protect our houses from ghosts.
we formed a two-man gang and gave it a ridiculous name, but we pretty much devoted our spare time to enhance our 'special powers' and the likes.
on nights where the clouds looked like crop fields, we called them the Eagle Squadron who devoted their lives to attacking and destroying houses and buildings, so we used to put 'spells' on our houses and anything we didnt want being destroyed.
somewhere in our minds we knew we didnt have special powers and that ghosts are the creations of Hollywood minds (or are they?), but it certainly gave us something to be occupied with during summer holidays...
When i was little, maybe six or seven, i had to go to this day care during the summer. One of their favourite field trips was to go bowling.
I believed i was the strongest kid in the day care AND bowling alley because i could lift an eight pound bowling ball over my head.
All the other kids believed this too and sort of worshiped me. I felt superior... until a new kid who could lift TWO bowling balls arrived.
i used to believe that if i stared at somebody for a long time, concentrating really hard on what i wanted them to think, i could change their thoughts. it really came in handy when i wanted to be picked for a special event in gym or when i wanted something from my parents.
After wathching Mary Poppins, I thought that if I opened an umbrella on a very windy day and jumped into air, I would fly away like Mary Poppins!
when i was little i used to belive that if you couldn't see someone they can't see you so when i was sneaking around and my mom or dad walked in i covered my eyes so the "couldn't see me".. then at preschool one time we were playing hide-and-go-seek an i would go in the middle of the feild and cover my eyes when people tagged me i thought they had just bumped into me and felt me.. i thought this till people began to tease me about me dumb hiding spots
I always believed as a child that we were able to do more than what we were taught to do, eg: we could jump much higher, run at the speed of light have extra strength etc. I used to spend hours at the top of the stairs willing myself to jump to the bottom without touching a single step, i fell down them alot!
I also believed that what we saw wasnt really there and that there was more going on than we realised, we as humans when we are born are taught that this is just the way life is, uniformed, to my amazement The Matrix film was released and it was just as i had always believed!!
And then this craze Jump started, i rest my case.
I used to think that I had the power to control the wind with my emotions. I made friends and we all figured we could create something with our feelings. we formed a team and every day we would go out "fighting the things that no one else could see"!
I used to believe that random people could read my thoughts so I would be extra careful not to think anything bad about them.
I used to believ because of my frequent deja vu that I could see into the future. And this happened at least once a day. But now it happens rarely.
When I was really young I was standing at the screen front door and it began to rain. For some reason I thought that because I could see the rain I had a superpower. From then on when it was raining I thought that everyone else just saw everything getting wet...but I could see the rain!!
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.
