...that our souls leaves our body while we were atsleep? I am just curious because based on what people say we have our dreams and nightmares because our souls departs our body and it travels to any destinations our mind want to. Any comments regarding this?

Hi certified_alice, during childhood our parents or the elderly always told us that our souls would leave our body while we felt into sound sleep. There were all sort of such amazing but rather dreadful legendary stories. during those young and innocent days we were so worried and scared that our souls wouldn't return to our bodies like what we had learned from the mystical myths This meant that we would be unconscious and sleep still until our souls were willing to back to our bodies again. We were advised not to awaken any sleeper aloud or in any other fearful ways which might frighten one. This might surprise the soul to flee away from the body. We were advised as well not to draw any stuffs or do any makeup on the face of a sleeper for afraid that the returned soul might not recognize its own appearance. You know kids were mischievous and prone to do such playful tricks. Happy posting

Yes, I believe this to be true. I think our soul, or astral body can depart your earthly body and travel to a higher plain in your unconscious state, and I believe our consciousness is aware of the surroundings on that astral plane and wills your astral self to wander wherever your mind wants it to. This "out of body" experience can also be attained through meditation, but takes a lot of concentration and visualisation. This was a very interesting discussion, Alice. Thank you very much for posting. Brightest Blessings. :-)
