1. You can't levitate. You might be able to heal people, look into healing traditions like qigong or if you're lazy, reiki.

2. Meditate, zone out on something while breathing like an angry dog, spin around in circles until you collapse from exhaustion, scream into a pillow and then cry.

3. Lie to yourself until you believe it.

4. Take drugs and watch cartoons

I suggest Adventure Time, Invader Zim, or anything else that zany. [thumbup]

Anyways, I have yet to see anyone levitate, so that's probably a bust. Healing, you can do, but probably not in the way you are imagining it. No healing you will learn is a heal-all or fix-all, despite what some may claim. That being said, you can still have some very good effects and do alot [yay] Hell, even I have had luck with healing, and I have very little talent with it, as mine lay...elsewhere.

Meditation is probably the best way to learn to go into a trance. There's some good guides on this site if you look for them, or you can look up meditation. A trance is a mental trick that you do in order to alter your perception, awareness, and thought process, which starts off difficult to learn, but gets easier the more you do it.

I'm not a "believe in something hard enough and you will make it happen" kind of guy, so I'm not the best to ask about that. I have more proactive approaches rather than passive ones.

Learn to daydream and take up art, as well as learn some philosophy, and read books. Alot of books. More books than you have yet to read. I suggest fantasy books or sci-fi.
Time is but an illusion in perception and is only perceived to pass by at the same moments together for us all... which is, quite frankly, me saying to not expect from me in a timely manner!

Read the books in the beginners list, use the resources on this site, and dedicate 2-3 years of work.
It's not that hard.

I'm not sure I agree :p It's not complicated (well, relatively speaking), but it's a hell of a lot of hard work, especially for the typical 20-something "hey what's this magic stuff" first timer. Someone who's never meditated, probably never had any similar daily practice which requires an equal level of discipline and self development (several hours a day of study and training, major revamping of many aspects of your lifestyle), who was probably raised in a strict materialist/reductionist worldview and needs to seriously re-evaluate the way they see the universe to take on board the concepts involved in these practices.
"The path of the Sage is called
'The Path of Illumination'
he who gives himself to this path
is like a block of wood
that gives itself to the chisel-
cut by cut it is honed to perfection"

That's not hard.

Sarah Reinertsen was the first women to complete the iron man trials with a prosthetic leg. She was 30 at the time she did it and it took 19 years of training, one failed attempt and she had to do it on a custom made bike.
That's hard.

Reading a handful of books for a year or so before starting 1-2 years of basic training is not that hard.
It's not easy...But it's not that hard.

I think it takes a natural inclination to do it. The barrier to entry, meaning years of study and practice, is going to keep out the people who aren't really interested or serious. But those who are clever and have a genuine drive to learn will find a way and work it into their lifestyle.

Well that is true about almost everything. Making teacups might look easy but to be able to do it properly with a high success rate you need to study, you need to train and you need to fail. It really doesn't mater if it's about learning to cook food, playing guitar or doing magic.
Magic a serious discipline.
