Does our soul leave the body when we dream?

Updated: Feb 10

Many people wonder what happens to our souls when we sleep and dream. Does the soul leave the body, do dreams carry messages from our soul? From astral projection to soul messages, this exploration of how our soul connects to our body during sleep will bring new insights into understanding dreams.

I have been interested in this topic and have been observing the energies and how our soul handles its connection with the body during sleep and I will share my spiritual research with you below.

The soul and dreaming meaning

From my research, it's not technically correct to say that a "soul leaves the body” while dreaming. A soul doesn't have energy, it's just pure consciousness and needs an energy-based instrument like a human body to experiment in a world where everything is energy.


A soul has energy connections to every cell of a body it uses in a world to experiment with. As such, a soul doesn't reside in a body, the soul actually owns a human body, but one could say that a soul might be more "focused" on that part of the body that the person has been using for a long time, like years. Some gifted psychics can "see" the soul in ordinary people as a sphere inside or next to the person's head because the mind is used 99% of the time by the average person during life on earth. The focus of our soul is actually where that person's consciousness is, and that is mostly in our minds. This is why humanity is a 3D (D - dimension of vibration or chakra scale) world as a vibration.

Does our soul leave the body while dreaming?

Are dreams real? Well, more than 95% of the time during sleep, the mind reenacts events related to fears, worries, or exciting things experienced during the day, because they left an impression on the person's feelings. Less than 5% of dreams are real transmissions from a soul to the person's mind.

Another point is that during sleep, since the body is inert and running on the automatic body programs, generally without brain control, the soul needs much less "attention" invested in the body's connection than during the day, and keeps only a loose connection to the body.


Therefore, during sleep, the soul tends to partially detach from the body and connect more with all sorts of energies and even souls around. The result of the soul's "connections and wanderings" during sleep is reflected in one's dreams, along with other dream sources.

Astral projection, dreams, soul messages

In some cases, like for advanced meditators, persons that practice astral projection, lucid dreaming, etc., the soul can even leave in a higher degree the physical body and might use the higher vibration energy bodies like the astral body or etheric body (4–5D dimensions levels) to “take a look around” in the astral plane generally. It can also visit the future or the past, or connect with higher dimensions and have a “chat” with higher entities, or with lower ones if the case is.

In addition to the replay by the mind and body during sleep of stronger emotions gathered over daily activity, which makes up the vast majority of ordinary dreams, all of this nocturnal activity of the soul produces "data transmissions" from the soul to the mind, which in turn "translates" the data received in terms of its basic beliefs belonging to the person's culture, background, social, religious, discernment, life experience, etc.

This translation, whether of the daily emotions or of the nocturnal activity of the soul, is actually what is known as a dream that can be remembered upon awakening (or not) when the soul reintegrates the body 100%, or anyway much more than during sleep.

Obviously, the average person doesn't practice meditation and doesn't cleanse his subconscious mind of limiting beliefs, so it's difficult to interpret dreams correctly. As a result, the data received from the soul is quite distorted by the average mind. Therefore, to understand the real message of a dream, one needs the help of advanced spirituals, such as competent tarot readers, to translate the dreams.

Are dream signs real? In general, true dream signs come from our soul, like soul messages, and come as suggestions addressed to the dreamer to correct some behavior, suggest some choices in making decisions, etc., but do not violate the person's free will.


Dream interpretation has always been considered a spiritual and occult activity, a source of insight and inner power. There are many methods used to interpret dreams such as tarot cards, crystal ball reading, symbols, natural elements, and so on.

 Much depends on the person themselves in interpreting the dreams. Some more advanced souls have the level of intuition to interpret their own dreams and even other people's dreams. 

From my own experience and other spirituals I have observed, if one has a steady spiritual practice and has cleaned himself of most limiting beliefs, he will not need external help and will be able to interpret his soul messages alone, whether they come through the channel of dreams, messages, intuition, in meditation, etc. What is important is what we do with the right soul messages afterward.
