astral traveling

More often than not, the majority have heard the term as Out of Body. Perhaps they heard it from a movie, book or an enlightened associate.

Relatively few people, though, comprehend that Out Of Body is a real event, and that everyone is capable of doing it. It is extremely likely that you have astral projected without even knowing it.

Just what is Out of Body though? Essentially, Out of Body is what happens when your non-physical, or astral body separates from your physical body. This happens most commonly while you sleep. Your subconscious mind is the seat of the astral body and when your conscious mind and your physical body rest, it heads out on its own.

In fact, many young children engage in Out of Body without understanding what they are doing. It can happen automatically if the body is relaxed, but many adults just feel that they are dreaming. But Out of Body is real! The astral body can travel without regard to either time or distance.

Many people may not be aware of the fact that many enlightened individuals believe in the existence of multiple bodies. The physical being only one of these bodies and the astral being another. It may also be referred to as the ethereal body. The astral body is considered to be both invisible and a duplicate of the physical body. It lacks substance, which has given rise to its name as an ethereal body. The question then becomes if the body lacks substance how can it be connected to the physical body. The answer is through a silver cord.

As the astral body first enters the physical body, the silver cord is connected. There is no depletion of this until after the time of death, when the astral body leaves the physical body for the very last time. This silver cord prevents the astral body from leaving and not coming back.

Often times the question of where the astral body actually travels will come up with discussing Out of Body. The astral plane is the realm of the astral body and it is through this plane, which consists of many levels that the astral body travels. The astral plane has several different theories that surround it. The first is that the astral plane is an alternate dimension of reality which overlays the physical. Another is that it happens to come in contact with the physical world through vibrations, which puts the astral plane on another wavelength separating it from the physical world. No matter what particular description is used to explain the existence of an astral plane, experts in the field agree that there are multiple levels to this alternate plane.

It is normal at this stage to ask if it is safe to do Out of Body or is it dangerous. The answer yes it is safe but there can also be dangers. We have already stated that everyone is capable of doing Out of Body. We have also explained that the astral body cannot leave the physical body without returning to it. As with all things in your life you need to keep your wits about you while doing this. This means you need to have strong cognitive abilities so that you can think clearly about where you desire to go and do while doing Out of Body.

You can find danger if your mind is not sound when you astral project. Therefore, anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol can find themselves in a crisis. These may be the lower levels of the astral plane.
