Spiritual travel is a form of out-of-body experience that requires a person to be willing to successfully achieve a spiritual goal. For this to happen, your soul (sometimes referred to as your consciousness) must be ready to leave your physical body temporarily; a concept which leaves your physical senses completely shut down for the duration of the travel or out-of-body experience.
So why do people practice spiritual travel?
How can you be sure that you are actually experiencing a spiritual travel when you actually decide to give it a try? Well, to answer the first question, people practice this out-of-body experience in order to relax their physical beings, get away from the daily hassles of life and venture into a world they have created for themselves; a world where nothing else physical matters to them, where everything is just as perfect as they want it.
To illustrate this, imagine this scenario, your life has taken a whole new turn for the worse, you owe several people money, you’ve just lost your job, and everything that has to do with your life is falling apart. Now what do you do? The more you try to get out of it the deeper you fall into it, because our troubles are like quicksand. At this point, all you feel like is to get away, and a good way to do that is to embark on a spiritual journey which will take you into a world where there is no worry, pain, or tragedy.
Now – to answer the second question earlier – if you’re new to this whole concept of travel, you may initially struggle to gain access to this out-of-body experience that comes with it. But as time goes on, you’ll become savvy and will be able to easily construct that ideal location for yourself; a place where you’ll constantly feel free, safe and perfectly well each time you arrive. Here, your awareness is heightened, and you will be able to make decisions and direct the experience all by using the power of your mind. Furthermore, once you step into this new found location, you consciousness should completely be aware of the environment.
Spiritual travel is sometimes referred to as transcendent or ecstatic experience because it deals with your innermost senses, i.e. the power of your mind, rather than your physical senses, which include your eye, ears, tongue, touch (ability to feel things around you) and your nose. Meaning, it completely deals with states of your being seemingly independent of the physical world.
When this occurs, you’ll discover an entirely new world which will open up to you. Note that the spectrum of experience that comes with spiritual travel is quite broad and may involve a wide variety of psychic and spiritual states; states which usually leaves you clearly remembering the experiences so you can learn from them.
