I used to believe that if I held a blanket or towel across my back like wings I would be able to use them to fly. After it didn't work, I decided I just wasn't doing it right so I practiced flying all the time. It didn't quite go how I thought it would.
I don't think that this is possible but... I believe that I still have this ability until now. I have this weird ability. For example, if I imagine something, it will never happen. I mean like... 2 years ago, when my teacher found out that I was cheating my friend homework, I imagine or think that she will angry at me but, it was different. Instead of yelling at me, she smiled to me and said, "Next time try to do it by yourself, okay?" and I nodded and smiled happily! So, if I have any problems, I will imagine that bad things will happen at me and it will never happen in my lifetime! Lol
I thought that I could fly, but I'd forgotten how. You don't want to know how many hours I spent trying to fly.
Staring intensely into bright lights would increase my ninjitsu. No source was more potent than the Sun, but pretty much anything would go. I passed off the pain as a sign that it was working.
Incidentally, I now wear glasses.
I had some vitamin pills that were shaped like Superted. I seriously thought that if I took them for ages, I’d have superpowers and be able to fly.
I was ultimately disappointed, but at least I was well nutrified.
When I was younger, I had a lot of beliefs about psychic powers. For example, I thought I was able to read people's minds. When I went around the playground trying to read people's minds, people were saying I was crazy. Despite that, I continued until I figured out I wasn't able to.
Me and my friends used to have this secret club. It was called the Ghost Club. We thought we could see ghosts(it was our imagination) and they used to give us missions to save the world and we felt so proud of ourselves. We also thought we had magic powers like transport ion and flying spells. To add on to that, we also thought we were all vampires and we thought we would grow our fangs at the age of 13.(we were 6/7 at the time). We still laugh about that club all the time!
I used to believe that we could develop powers but we got to find them. I used to be with a classmate trying to improve our "powers" thinking about moving a paper off the desk and then we tried to control the birds while we were imagining they would obey. I was pretty influenced by my classmate I think
When I was a kid I used to believe that I had a super power: I could see through objects, as long as they were close enough to my face. I didn't tell anyone about that because I was afraid they would treat me like an "mutant", like on X-Men comic books, and send me to a concentration camp. A few years later, I figured it out.
I used to believe that I could fly! I would run as fast as I could then jump. I had a dream about it once. I was running then I leapt into the air. Sometimes it worked sometimes it didn't.
My mom told me when I was a kid that I ran so fast that I would lift off of the ground for a second.
I now tell my son the same thing, and he believes it.
There was a house down the street that had a sign out front that said"psychic reader". I thought the person inside always knew when I walked by,and what I was thinking.
When I was 3, I used to believe that when I rolled over in bed, my legs would detach and switch places. It happened very fast, so I would concentrate with all my might for the moment they detached and reattached.
I used to believe when I was 6, that when I was older, I would grow a third arm from my stomach, because I thought that at some point my body would realise that, at times, like anyone, I needed to carry more things than I could with two arms, and since there was a demand, in my mind, for a third arm, evolution would grow me another! The only logical place I could find for it was my stomach since it would be the easiest place to have one to carry things, like a lopsided claw machine! I also believed that every time I had a stomach ache, it was a sign that my revolutionary third arm was growing!
When I was in second grade (8 years old), I was standing in line with the other kids to have the teacher check my work, and two boys and I started a contest to see who could hold their breath the longest. I filled my lungs with air, and held my breath for the rest of the time I was in line. The thing that amazed me was that I didn't even feel the need for air while holding my breath, I was just as comfortable as I had been while breathing. Needless to say, I thought I was really good at holding my breath, and wondered why no one else noticed how long I was doing that.
It wasn't until a couple of years later that I realized I had been breathing through my nose.
One time we were driving past a house that advertised psychic tarot card readings for $20.00 and my daughter asked me if the lady inside knew we were driving by reading her sign.
I used to think I had the special power of being able to smell things with my finger.
I used to think that I was the only person in the world that could yawn. So one day in kindergarten I yawned and said to the kid next to me, "don't worry I'm not going to eat you, that's my superpower". Why I thought that was a superpower though is beyond me.
I used to think that the dots and things that I saw when I looked in a light for a long time was a sign that angels were around. It made me believe that God gave me this special gift that no on else had.
When I was younger, I would always be gentle with doorknobs because I thought I was so strong I could crush them.
