The Astral Plane is a transparent sensory state in which one seems to leave the body, and the capability of transporting oneself via thought process to locations removed from ordinary sensory states.
This is considered out of the body experience, wherein some aspect of the self is transported into other dimensions, especially as non-physical. Out of body experience is termed Astral Projection. This could consist in the visitation to other dimensional realities solely, or to include the communication with spirits and advisors, and the experience of tunnel travel as described by many with near death experience.
The greatest asset of the experience of the Astral Plane may be the evidence of the separation from the body of soul or spirit which may indicate life separate from the physical body both in living and afterlife conditions. This can produce a perspective of security concerning the fears and affects of death, and the degree of attachment concerning one's way of living present life.
The Astral Plane is what is now called the
Metaphysical Dimension independent of both the Positive and Negative Dimensions.
