Resources: Out-of-body Experience
This phenomena is sometimes known as astral travelling, but more commonly today is referred to as an Out-Of-Body Experience (OOBE).
For example, consider a person lying on a hospital bed and whilst under anaesthesia they experience seeing themselves on the operating table. At the same time they sense “hearing” actual conversations taking place between nurses and doctors. Another example might be of experiencing a sense of being in another location or time… whilst the physical body remains fast asleep in a bed. An OOBE may also be experienced whilst “visiting” another realm of existence such as the etheric or spirit world… Consciousness knows no limits!
Robert A. Munroe, a pioneer in work on OOBE has written extensively about the subject in his seminal book Far Journeys. Another pioneer explorer, Raymond Moody, in his classic book Life After Life provides historic but still relevant examples of OOBEs as does Spiritual Light. Scientifically, Charles T. Tart has also extensively written on this phenomena.
For seekers of truth, OOBE experiences (or actual experiments) are worth investigating, particularly in view of the fact you may also spontaneously or otherwise experience this phenomena… or have already done so.

“We are a spiritual (nonphysical energy) being temporarily using a biological body (vehicle) for experience and expression. Since the physical body is a temporary vehicle, it is only natural for us to be able to separate from it and experience our nonphysical self. Out-of-body experiences are the normal shift or transfer of awareness from our physical body to one of our higher frequency energy vehicles. We are simultaneously using and controlling multiple energy (frequency) bodies.
"Each of these energy vehicles exist at a distinctly different density and vibrational frequency. Ideally, all of our energy vehicles work in harmony to assist in our personal development. Each individual vehicle of consciousness is necessary to perceive within its unique frequency of the universe. To experience matter, we must have a vehicle of matter.
"To consciously perceive and experience the higher (less dense) vibratory dimensions, we must consciously be using the appropriate energy vehicle.”
