Do you know the difference between a Near Death Experience and Astral Travel?
Astral Travel (Astral Projection) is also known as an Out Of Body Experience and is where ones Spiritual Body leaves the physical body (and can even look down on yourself) and travel to another place. Astral Travel is NOT related to a near death experience, it is simply an out of body experience. Contrary to how we use our five senses here in the physical world, during out of body experiences we use our six senses. Astral travelers may travel from one realm to another through thought alone. Communication is via thought or telepathy, feeling and knowing. There are no limits on what one can see during Astral Travel – as we are able to see in every direction, in front, behind, to the side, above and below. There are no physical boundaries in these dimensions and normal physical laws do not apply.
Some people who are lucky enough to be able to experience this worry that they may die or not know how to get back to their body during their travels. This is not the case, you will always find your way back to your physical body and there is an Umbilical type cord which attaches between your Spiritual Body and your Physical Body which will always lead you back safely. Some report that they have seen the Umbilical Cord but most say they do not see it.
On your Astral Travels you may meet Angels, Spirit Guides, Friends, Pets, Deceased Loved Ones, possibly even other people on their Astral Travels. Astral Travels generally take place whilst one is asleep and some wake up thinking they have had a strange dream. It is alleged that one can possibly teach themselves to have this experience through meditation and Self – hypnosis.
A Near Death Experience is one in which one has come close to death, say on an operating table as an example and whilst they are stuck between the 2 worlds they experience such calm and loving feelings, some people report seeing themselves as being above their own body – looking down on themselves, there is often talk of a tunnel and a bright light and some report seeing or hearing a deceased loved one. There are studies that state the person has often heard the words “Go Back, it is not your time” and similar wordings. The person who has had the Near Death Experience often wakes to find that the doctors etc. had thought they were dead. This can be life changing for so many, people who once thought there was nothing after death turn into true believers in the Afterlife.
There is no scientific evidence that either Astral Travel or Near Death Experiences are real – some say it is just hallucinations. I know what I think though and I believe that they do happen.
