Happily, I said to myself, This is fantastic! I’m out of the body. This must be Soul Travel!
Then I accidentally wiggled a toe on my right foot.
Immediately I was back in my body in bed. I remained awake for a while, trying to comprehend this incredible and awesome experience. It was so real!
As I lay there, I thought, So this is what Eckankar is all about. It is a teaching to realize and know one’s True Self!
I had proven that I am Soul, a spiritual being that is separate from the physical body. It was the beginning of my conscious spiritual journey back home to God.

Some of your want Soul Travel, which is usually an advanced state beyond the dream state. Again, sit on your bed or on the floor, shut your eyes, and look into your Spiritual Eye. This is located at a point just above and between the eyebrows. Don’t expect to see anything there; just chant HU, the holy name of God.
The spell out Soul Travel, chanting each separate letter: S-O-U-L T-R-A-V-E-L. Do this about three times out loud and then three times quietly.
