Astral Travel (AT) is the act of the soul leaving the body for a temporary period of time to travel to specific places to experience learning and soul growth. With practice, AT can be done both while you are conscious and awake and it can also be done while you are unconscious and in dream state.
Many people have astrally traveled in dream state without realizing it.
This is what an AT dream episode often looks like:
You have a dream where you are meeting with a bunch of people (you may or may not have met them before) and ideas are being shared. You wake up and feel the dream was extremely vivid to the point where you can actually remember the faces of those present and what was said.
Astral Travel Techniques
astral Travel While you Sleep
If you have found yourself uncommonly tired, groggy or exhausted - even after a full night’s sleep - it is possible that your soul was traveling while your physical body was in dream state - especially if you remember having a dream like the one mentioned above.
Most common in a period of rapid spiritual development, much of what your soul needs to learn and needs to experience can not be fit into a single 8 hour day - and furthermore - your full soul attention is needed. Often, our full attention is NOT available during the day - because we are focused on other things, like living, eating, working, creating, etc.
Many highly spiritual people do much of their soul work while their body sleeps and this is completely natural. Unfortunately, there is nothing that you as a physical person can do to prevent unconscious astral travel, because this manner of soul travel was written into your pre-birth contract.
Thus, if you feel your soul may be leaving your body to learn lessons and meet with other souls at night - this is likely occurring. Thankfully, it won’t be happening all the time.
You will also experience periods of rest.
Astral Travel While Awake
If you are interested in being more actively involved in your soul’s travels throughout the Universe, you can train yourself to astral travel consciously by manually encouraging your soul to leave your body.
The best way to begin training yourself to go on conscious soul journeys by using the practice of shamanic journey.
Sound strange to you? That’s okay if it does! Not everyone has a soul that leaves their body. This is a unique experience and whether or not you do or will experience it, largely depends on your own soul’s contract and experience with AT.
