It won’t be long before we can travel closer to the stars, thanks to Sir Richard Branson and his Virgin Galactic spaceships. However, astral travel or astral projection is a different matter entirely. You don’t have to pony up the £100,000 or so astronomical price for a space flight with Virgin Galactic if you merely want to do a bit of astral travelling. Some people believe we are all capable of astral travel – leaving our bodies during sleep or meditation. Now there’s a great idea – sign me up! I’ve tried to do it but so far haven’t managed to wake up on a beach in Hawaii as was planned. Oh well. Wouldn’t it be nice if we never again had to deal with airport parking, lost luggage, or security chaos and hassle! No packing to worry about – you could leave your luggage (emotional or otherwise) at home. Just have a nice mug of cocoa, go to bed, and wake up in your dream destination!
If you haven’t been able to master the art of astral travel, out of body experiences, lucid dreaming, or time travel – then virtual travel may be the next best thing. Just log onto your computer and, like Captain Kirk on the USS Enterprise, fill in your own captain’s log as you go. You can visit the exotic and interesting places you’ve always wanted to see – and for a fraction of the price. You could be at the Taj Mahal one minute and the Coliseum in Rome the next – and all without leaving your armchair and comfort of your own home.
