In the last few years, I have had a major spiritual shift to Eastern philosophies. The ones I most study are Taoism, Yoga, meditation, and the Chakra system. I have had many spiritual awakenings. They are almost constant. Here is a recent one.
Astral Travel and Existence Without Body
Even after several years of study, there are many things that I believe in, but I can’t do. Astral Travel, or out of body experiences, are one of these things. I guess when it comes right down to it, I don’t really believe. I have many doubts. This morning as I was drinking my tea when the thought came that has really opened up my heart to this.
Vision and Sound in Dreams
I dream colorful, vivid dreams. Like most women in my family, I dream long, interesting stories. We love to sleep, because it’s like going to the movies. After a night of dreams, my mind was wandering. I was thinking of the chores I needed to do today, and the writing assignments I need to finish for others. All of a sudden, it hit me. I see and hear in my dreams. I don’t need eyes, I don’t need ears – I just do.
Body Is Not Needed
If I can “see” and “hear” in my dreams – if I can feel sensations such as pain and touch in my dreams, then why can’t I have an out of body experience? What would be the difference in doing all these things in my dream than doing them in Astral Travel, or even still, doing them after my body dies?
I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts and ideas on this subject. Thanks!
