Human beings are limited by the physical world, by the capacities of the body and by the earthly laws of space and time. Understandably, then, an enduring belief held by humankind is that some part of us may be capable of breaking those bonds, that a spiritual or emotional essence can travel outside the body. Underlying numerous philosophies and religions is the belief that the spirit and the body exist separately, and that the spirit or soul survives after death. But what of the spirit during life? Is it possible for a spiritual form to journey outside the physical body and then return? And if the spirit survives death, could it come back in another body? Throughout history, respected men and women have related their own experiences and answered yes. These spiritual voyages are said to take one of three forms. During an out-of-body experience, the spirit travels beyond the physical body for a short time and then returns. In a near-death experience, the spirit departs as if bound for the next life but is drawn back into the still-living body. And spirits who appear to have survived the death of one physical body and then come back in another are said to have undergone reincarnation.
