SHALL I TRY ASTRAL TRAVEL?

Astral travel happens when a person wilfully goes out of her body; as in, the soul leaves the body. Travels to various places, even different dimensions and then comes back.

During this time, the body lies motionless. It is connected to the roaming soul with a fine energy thread.

There are many persons who teach such techniques and there are astral travel magazines where such practitioners share their experiences.

I have met many persons who have been doing it for years and have now stopped. Anna, a young teenager could so it spontaneously since childhood. Many times, she would just come out at night and fly through the malls, the clouds. Later, she stopped, after learning of natureโ€™s laws.

Now, for the main question. Shall I?

The answer lies embedded in the goal. If the goal is just to have some fun, live life on the edge; then nothing can stop you.

However, please remember, a fundamental law of nature.

We have been given this human body to experience the world through the six senses. It is given for a specific purpose. No scripture by any prophet encourages such practices.

When the soul is trained to leave the body wilfully, the tether to the body is very fine. The body cannot react, get up or do anything as the life force i.e the soul is out. If during this period, something untoward happens, some emergency, the soul may not be able to respond instantly. In such cases death may occur.

That would be catastrophic. Because the death would be untimely and self willed. Now, no messenger from any realm would come to take the soul to spirit planes.

The person or her soul would be in doldrums for many years, until the actual time of death arrives. This is a very bad place to be.

Some teachers of this practice have reportedly died in this way.

Further, once the soul is out of the body, many practitioners of the dark arts can actually capture the soul, especially the one in doldrums. That is even worse.

There are some people who have a natural capability for astral travel, for a reason. Even such persons should be very careful while practicing.

Finally, for self realisation or finding God, such fancy stuff isnโ€™t needed. The omnipotence lies right inside. It can be awakened in a state of deep surrender, stillness.

The ultimate teacher is right in me. My own subconscious mind. It doesnโ€™t require all these dramatic practices.

Such stuff may also lead to blind alleys on the path to self realization.

  1. I have heard about the astral journey too but was not aware of its perilous nature in certain cases. The journey of the soul’s evolution can definitely happen here, in this plane too if we consciously practice it.
    Have a wonderful 2021 Parneet. May the world see better days ahead!

  2. How interesting! I know of psychics who astral travel and have always found it fascinating to hear of their visions. Didnโ€™t realise it was dangerous too but surely they would know the risks.

    • Not really. Most don’t know of the risks. Even the ‘masters’. The ones who die or have other afflictions due to astral travel can’t tell.
      Some do know.
      It’s like suicide. Those who do it don’t live to tell that is not an escape.
      Anyway, thanks for such insightful and kind words always.

  3. I worked with a woman in Brazil who said that she had experienced astral travel. She also described the fine energy thread connecting her with her body. While I’ve never had any desire to experiment with astral traveling, I have had dreams of such a nature.

    • Astral travel in dreams is ok. Because you don’t actually travel. The soul remains within the body. We only experience places outside as if we’re in those places. However to do this physically, wilfully is not advisable.
      Plus it doesn’t really add to self realisation.
      I see that you’ve also had much learning from various experiences. However, you are well grounded and have a divine sense of righteousness.
      I deeply respect that.
      Thank you so much

  4. Wonderful article..& you are correct this need not be done to access the god force/source within..in ending I will add, this practice is embedded in the old dark energy of pre 2012, as a red earring to finding wisdom,knowledge & other dimensional beings..the darkness loves mis-direction.
    Your own connection to light , wisdom & benevolence is very inspiring ..I send you a light language blessing in gratitude & love. GG

  5. I have a friend who astral travels, but have never done so myself and was always curious about it! It’s interesting that some people do it spontaneously (since childhood) and others have to cultivate the ability! Ah, I had no idea that it could be dangerous. Thanks for the insightful post.

  7. I tried it once n was about to succeed in leaving my body but didn’t proceed further. I could only feel that much that I left it. And then when I got out of that meditative state, my blood pressure dropped drastically. Genuinely, many people can do that, but I would not recommend that without professional help.
    Great article. Got to read something really interesting..

    • Thank you so much. One of my great teachers told me that the spiritual path has innumerable alleyways and dead ends. We shouldn’t get caught in them.
      I am truly amazed by your intuitive inner strength and perfection. A pleasure to read your words always
