WaheGuru Jee Khalsa WaheGuru Jee Kee Fateh

I have a question i was reading and watching stories about spirits and souls etc (oujia board,Spirit Communication). Then i heard about astral travel then i searched up is it allowed in Sikhism. Then a story came about Guru Nanak Dev Ji how he could travel with his physical body and astral body and how he came back with parshad. I hear lots of sikhs do it and travel to sachkhand or Golden temple but you could go anywhere.

How do i astral travel any techniques.

If i do it could another soul come in my body and when doing it should i ask waheguru or guru nanak for protection.

Thank you Amrit

Yes. The consciousness can travel anywhere in the subtle body leaving the physical body behind. When traveling, the subtle body remains connected to the physical body through a "silver cord" that connects it to the navel point of the physical body. As long as this cord is there, the subtle body will return to the physical body. Have you ever had that experience when falling asleep that your body makes a sudden jerk? That's a reflex reaction of fear at the moment the subtle body is leaving. It pulls the subtle body back into the physical body. Many children tell their parents they can fly. The parent often says "Honey, you just imagined (or dreamed) you could fly. It's not real." But actually it is real. Children can more easily travel in their subtle body than most adults. In the subtle body, you can go anywhere. You can hear without any ears and you can see without any eyes. The subtle body holds these perceptions without needing the physical organs. When the silver cord is broken at the time of death, the subtle body disconnects from the physical body and the pranas leave the physical body.

There are many ways to train yourself to consciously travel in your subtle body, but the way that I use is to chant "Ek Ong Kaar, Saat Naam, Sri Wahe Guru" in the long form for two and a half hours (150 minutes) and then lie down on my back and cover my body with my shawl. Often, my subtle body leaves my physical body within seconds of lying on my back and completely relaxing.

No, another soul cannot enter your body when your consciousness is traveling elsewhere in your subtle body. No worries there.

When you begin, you may not be able to control where you go. Focusing on the Golden Temple is always a good place to start.
