There was always an argument since ancient times about the question if a soul leaves a body while a person is sleeping or not. Below you will find an explanation of this coming from a long research with energies and consciousness.
Dreams and the soul
From my research, it’s not technically correct to say that a “soul leaves the body while dreaming”. A soul has no energy, it’s just pure awareness and needs an energy-based instrument like a human body to experiment in a world where everything is also energy.
A soul has energy links to every cell of a body it uses in a world to experiment with it. As such, a soul doesn’t reside inside 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 the person is using more continuously, like in years. In ordinary people, some advanced clairvoyants can “see” the soul as a sphere inside or beside the person’s head, because the mind/brain is 99% used by the average person during life on Earth. Where the focus of our soul is, actually tells where that person's awareness is located, and this is mostly in our minds. This is why our soul is a 3D (D - dimension of vibration, or chakra's scale) world as vibration.
In rare cases, the soul might be detected in the heart region for persons who use more their heart in their life, but I saw also people where it’s focused more in their stomachs or even other parts.
More than 95% of the time during sleep the mind replays the fears and worries gathered over the day because that person got attached to them. 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 runs on the automatic programs located in the spine and without brain control generally, the soul needs much less “attention” invested into the body's connection than during daytime, and keeps just a “loose” link to the body. Therefore, during sleep the soul tends to leave partially the body and connect more with all sorts of energies and even souls around. The result of his strolls around 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, etc. the soul can leave the physical body layer and might use the higher vibration field layers of the body like the astral body or etheric body (4–5D dimensions levels) to “take a look around” in the astral plane generally, or even in time whether in 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.
Besides the re-play by the mind and body during sleep of stronger emotions gathered during the daily activity which makes the large majority of usual dreams, all this nocturne activity of the soul produces “data transmissions” from the soul to the brain, which in turn “translates” the data received in terms of its basic beliefs belonging to the person’s culture, social, religion, discernment, life experience, etc.
This “translation”, whether from daily emotions or from the soul nocturne activity, is actually what is known as a dream that might be remembered upon waking up (or not) when the soul re-integrates 100% the body, or anyway much more than during sleep.
Obviously, the average person doesn't have practice of meditation and of cleaning his subconscious of limiting beliefs, and hence the dreams are difficult to interpret correctly. As result, the data received from the soul is quite distorted by the average mind so to understand the real message from a dream, and therefore one needs help from advanced spirituals like competent tarot readers for instance to translate the dreams.
In general, a soul's messages come as suggestions addressed to the person to correct some behavior, suggest some choices when making decisions, etc., but do not violate the person's free will.
