Due to the Marvel Movie “Doctor Strange,” a superhero who most essential tool was his ability to astral projection, or the ability to separate his physical body from his spiritual one. This is done in spectacular fashion onscreen, enhanced by cutting-edge computer generated effects featuring an extended fight scene between two people in spirit form. Many people have come across this obscure term and wish to know more about it.
Astral projection is fun and fascinating — but is astral projection real?
The idea that humans can leave their bodies during dream states is ancient. Countless people, from New Agers to shamans around the world, believe that it is possible to commune with cosmic intelligence through visions and vivid dreams experienced during astral projection, also known as out-of-body experiences. Surveys suggest that between 8 and 20 percent of people claim to have had something like an out-of-body experience at some point in their lives — a sensation of the consciousness, spirit, or “astral body” leaving the physical body. While most experiences occur during sleep or under hypnosis, some people claim to do it while merely relaxing.
It may be a profound experience, but the fundamental problem is that there’s really no way to scientifically measure whether or not a person’s spirit “leaves” or “enters” the body. The simplest and best explanation for out-of-body experiences is that the person is merely fantasizing and dreaming. Because there is no scientific evidence that consciousness can exist outside of the brain, astral projection is rejected by scientists.
Why hasn’t astral projection been proven scientifically?
Quite simply put it has, researcher like Charles Tart, Raymond Moody and Robert Monroe have proformed countless clinical trials to prove the existence of the astral body. But the results have been largely ignored by main stream science due to the paradyme materials model modern science must conform too.
Two Methods to Prove its Existence
One way to prove the existence of out of body experiences is to dedicate a period of time to study to follow the exercises involved in the phenomena or read the reported experiences of one of its pioneers, Robert Monroe.
Robert Bob Monroe was not interested in the occult or spiritual life when he started to have out of body experiences. And his lifelong efforts to study his and others experiences are the perfect starting place from which to grow a baseline about the subject.
Unless you are open to the possibility
No amount of clinical data will convince the skeptic of its reality. One experience is enough to change anyone’s belief. That is why most people in research do not care anymore to prove or disprove the truth. They have moved beyond this need to validate their findings.
