Astral Planing

 

The idea of astral travel is rooted in common worldwide religious accounts of the afterife in which the consciousness' or soul's journey or "ascent" is described in such terms as "an out-of body experience, wherein the spiritual traveler leaves the physical body and travels in his/her astral body (or dream body) into ‘higher’ realms. It is therefore associated with near death experiences but is also frequently reported as spontaneously experienced in association with sleep and dreams, illness, surgical operations, drug experiences, sleep paralysis and forms of meditation.
