Astral Projection is basically an Out of Body Experience (OBE). It’s a lucid trance state of semi-sleep that allows your astral body (soul) to leave your physical body and roam freely on the astral plane, which is said to be populated by angels, spirits, guides and other immaterial beings.
Your astral body is the bridge between your spirit and soul, helping you to tap into higher levels of consciousness.
As you dissociate from your physical body, you begin to feel as though you’re floating and lifting out of your skin. At this stage your mind is no longer aware of the physical body and your astral body is now free to roam.
There is of course speculation on whether or not this actually takes place, or whether it’s nothing more but a lucid dream projection.
