Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


This week on the Ominous Origins podcast, I invite you to join me as we leave our bodies behind for a bit and take a trip to an astral plane.

This week, I dive into a requested topic — one that sent me down a significant research rabbit hole. Listen to this highly condensed chat about a very interesting subject: astral planes and astral projection.


I’m back! I know, it’s been a while. This episode has been kicking my arse. When I was contacted about my thoughts on the astral planes, I became curious and jumped right in. However, I was a little overwhelmed by how much research there’s been on the topic, and so I did my best to take the best bits from a ton of different sources and condense it into a 20-minute episode. So, that was fun.

But what I did learn was that there are a lot of these planes, and while I didn’t go into detail on any of them, we get a pretty firm understanding of just what these places are.

But what I found more interesting was how people travel there. These experiences called astral projections, or out-of-body experiences (OBEs), can happen to anybody at any time, though there are some triggers for the involuntary OBEs. On the flip side, there are some who train themselves to project themselves to these dimensions. It’s all very interesting.

One of the biggest studies I could find on OBEs came from Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. I will admit that I didn’t read the whole thing. For as interesting as it is, it wouldn’t make for good podcasting content. But I encourage you to check out the article HERE.
