Astral Body

It has been said that the astral body is a spiritual counterpart to the physical human body and that this body is said to exist on a different plane…the philosopher Plato was one of the first, if not the first, who pondered about the concept of an astral plane…one that contains the planetary heavens, and it is in this astral plane that the astral body is said to dwell...The astral body is normally associated with such things as emotions and imagination…it is thought that through sleep, death, or through drugs or any other loss of consciousness…the astral body is said to separate itself from the physical body…the astral body is also associated with contemplations about an afterlife…as it is the vehicle for carrying the soul from the physical body into what we might call, the higher realms…it has also said that the astral body is the body through which humans experience visions and dreams…and out-of-body experiences and astral projection…there are those that say that it can be seen as an aura-like appearance…one of swirling and changing colors around the body itself.
